All content and software included on this site is the property of Afilias Limited, and is protected by U.S. and international copyright laws. This site or any portion of this site may not be reproduced, duplicated, copied, sold, distributed, or otherwise exploited for any commercial purpose that is not expressly permitted by Afilias Limited.

"Afilias" is a registered service mark of Afilias Limited. The .INFO logo, the Afilias logo, and all product logos are service marks of Afilias Limited. Where the world goes for information is a service mark of Afilias Limited. All rights reserved. All third party trademarks, service marks, logos, and trade names are the property of their respective owners.

We reserve the right to make changes to our site and these disclaimers, terms, and conditions at any time. You are responsible for regularly viewing the Terms of Use. Continued use of the Web sites after any such changes constitutes your consent to such changes.

Afilias is a registry services provider for many top-level domains (TLDs). As such, Afilias accepts domain name registrations from a number of domain name registrars. Afilias does not accept domain name registrations directly from registrants. Please note that each registrar has its own policies and procedures. If you have any questions about a particular domain-name registration, you should begin by contacting the registrant and registrar of record. Except for certain extraordinary circumstances, Afilias alters a record in the registry only at the request of the relevant and authorized registrar.

Logo and Graphic Guidelines for Use

Our logos are the most visible form of our brand identity, and represent our intellectual resources and high standards. That's why we ask those who wish to use Afilias' trademarked logos in connection with news stories to observe the legal restrictions outlined below.

The logos may only be used in close proximity to, or in obvious connection with, a published article, blog post, or broadcast news story about Afilias, .INFO, or a specific Afilias product or service.

The logos may not be copied, distributed, or used apart from the article or broadcast commentary about the company or the applicable product or service.

The logos must be used as provided by Afilias with no changes, including, but not limited to, changes in the color, proportions, or design, or removal of any words, artwork, or trademark symbols. The logos may not be animated, morphed, or otherwise distorted in perspective or appearance. Changes in size are acceptable, as long as proportions are maintained.

To properly present a logo, a minimum clearance between the logo and other elements must be maintained. Some logos are comprised of both text and graphics. Such logos should be displayed in their entirety; please do not delete any text that surrounds such logos.

The logo may not be combined with any other object, including, but not limited to, other logos, words, slogans, numbers, or symbols.
