8. PUBLICATION RIGHTS

8.1. The Purchaser acknowledges and agrees that DNFront.com has the right to publicize the sale of the Purchased Domains, including the Purchase Price.

9. APPRAISALS

9.1. HDNname's Appraisals are based on several factors as noted on our site. You agree that you must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any Appraisal, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such Appraisal.

9.2. You agree to defend, indemnify and hold DNFront, its employees and associates, and Ruben Couto, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys' and experts fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of the use of your Appraisal or Appraisals, your use of the services, your connection to the service, or your violation of any rights of another.

9.3. Appraised values can differ significantly from actual sale prices, and sale prices may be inconsistent. Appraisers sometimes differ widely in their opinions of value. Appraisers, like buyers and sellers, do not know everything about the domain, the market, or the many other considerations that might influence the value. Many factors can affect value. An Appraisal is only an opinion. And, as stated under "About us", Ruben Couto is not a professional domainer, but a part-time amateur domainer. You must consider his appraisals in the light of this.

9.4. All Appraisals are based on the assumptions that you are the absolute owner of the submitted domain name(s) and that there are no copyright, trademark or other intellectual property infringements. If DNFront detects that the name(s) submitted may infringe any known trademarks, the appraisal request will not be fulfilled.

9.5. Payment must be made, using Paypal, between the time you submit the request and prior to receiving the DNFront's Appraisal report. In the case of requests of appraisals of more than 10 domain names, DNFront may request that 50% of the total cost be made right after the request is submitted. The remaining 50% must be payed prior to receiving the DNFront's Appraisal report.

9.6. There will be no refunds in any situation whatsoever.

9.7. You expressly understand and agree that DNFront shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses (even if DNFront has been advised of the possibility of such damages), resulting from: (i) the use or the inability to use the service; (ii) the cost of procurement of substitute goods and services resulting from any goods, data, information or services purchased or obtained or messages received or transactions entered into through or from the service; (iii) unauthorized access to or alteration of your transmissions or data; (iv) statements or conduct of any third party on the service; or (v) any other matter relating to the service.
