Furthermore, you agree that if you are subject to litigation regarding your registration or use of your domain name, the Service Provider may deposit control of your registration record into the registry of the judicial body by supplying a party with a registrar certificate from us.

ii. the domain name being registered;
iii. the name, postal address, e-mail address, and voice and fax (if available) telephone numbers of the administrative contact for the domain name;

You hereby irrevocably waive any and all claims and causes of action you have arising from such disclosure or use of your domain name registration by the Service Provider.
g. Your willful provision of inaccurate or unreliable information, your willful failure to promptly update information provided to us, or any failure to respond to inquiries by us addressed to the e-mail address of the registrant, the administrative, billing or technical contact appearing in the Whois directory with respect to a domain name concerning the accuracy of contact details associated with the registration shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement and be a basis for cancellation of the domain name registration.
