The Registrant agrees to check the Registry’s website periodically for Registry Policy updates.
The Registrant’s continued registration and/or use of a domain name following the date the most current version of the Registry Policies is posted to the Registry's webpage, which shall be the effective date, constitutes the Registrant’s acceptance of such revised Registry Policies. In the event that the Registrant does not wish to be bound by the revised Registry Policies, the Registrant’s sole remedy is to cancel the registration of any domain name covered by the Registry Policies, by following the appropriate Registry and/or Registrar Policies regarding such cancellation.
