You understand that You must do this at least 31 days prior to the end of the then current JACO Digital Service term. It is Your responsibility to keep Your credit card information current and accurate, including the expiration date.

You understand that the JACO Digital Privacy Services term may be different than the registration term of the JACO Digital Domain which is associated with the JACOPD Privacy Services. If a JACO Digital Domain expires and is deleted before the end of the term of the associated JACO Digital Privacy Services, then the JACO Digital Privacy Services associated with the domain will end when the JACO Digital Domain is deleted and You understand that there will be no refund for any resulting unused portion of an JACO Digital Privacy Services term.

7. You understand and agree that JACO Digital has the absolute right and power, in its sole discretion and without any liability to You whatsoever, to suspend the JACO Digital Privacy Services, close Your Account, terminate provision of the JACO Digital Privacy Services, list the information You provided in section 2 in the Whois output or provide the information You provided in section 2 to a claimant, resolve any and all third party claims, whether threatened or made, arising out of Your use of JACO Digital Domain, or take any other action which JACO Digital deems necessary.
In the event JACO Digital takes any of the actions set forth above or in the event You elect to cancel the JACO Digital Privacy Services for any reason, there will be no refund any fees paid by You for the JACO Digital Privacy Services.
You also acknowledge and agree that JACO Digital may, in its sole discretion and without any liability to You whatsoever, cancel your JACO Digital Privacy Services during the first thirty (30) days after You procured the JACO Digital Privacy Services, and/or suspend Your rights under this Agreement and list the JACO Digital Addresses during resolution of a dispute or investigation of allegations.

8. FORWARDING COMMUNICATIONS
You agree that JACO Digital may review communications sent to the JACOPD Addresses associated with Your JACO Digital Domain. For communications received via certified or traceable courier mail (such as UPS, FedEx, or DHL), or first class U.S. postal mail which does not appear to be unsolicited commercial mail, JACO Digital may either i) forward such communication to You or ii) may attempt to communicate to you a scanned copy of a page of the communication to ascertain Your desires with respect to forwarding the communication to You. You specifically acknowledge that JACO Digital may elect to not forward to You (nor to otherwise communicate with You) regarding first class postal mail or email, fax, postal mail or telephone communications which appear to be unsolicited communications which offer or advertise the sale of goods or services or which solicit charitable contributions, or communications which appear to arise from Your having used the JACOPD Privacy Services as a general mail forwarding service (see section 1, above). You authorize JACO Digital to either discard all such communications or return all such communications to sender unopened. You agree to waive any and all claims arising from Your failure to receive communications directed to Your domain name but not forwarded to You by JACO Digital, including failures which arise from JACO Digital’s mistake in judging whether a communication appears to be an unsolicited communication.
Email. The Whois directory generally requires an email address for every purchased domain name registration. When You purchase JACO Digital Privacy Services, JACO Digital creates an email address for that domain, “yourdomainnamewhois@jacodigital.com”. Thereafter, when messages are sent to the email address listed in the JACO Digital Address, JACO Digital forwards such messages to the email address You listed in section 2. If such email address becomes non-functioning or if email to such address bounces, JACO Digital is not obligated to attempt to contact You through other means. You agree that JACO Digital may elect, in JACO Digital’s sole discretion, to allow You to access Your Account and view email sent to the JACO Digital Addresses, though such alternative means of servicing Your Account is an option and not a requirement.
Your Obligation to Respond to communications from the JACO Digital: When JACO Digital receives a communication which may warrant forwarding to You, per the terms of this Agreement, JACO Digital will send an email to the email address You provided to JACO Digital pursuant to section 2. The email message will identify the sender of the correspondence and the date received. As an alternative, You agree that JACO Digital may allow you to access Your Account to view full or partial scanned copies of (non-email) communications sent to the JACO Digital Addresses and that You may be required to interact with Your Account to have the physical originals of such communications forwarded to You and that if You do not interact with Your Account in the ways indicated upon accessing Your Account, that the communications may not be forwarded to You. In either event, You will have seventy-two (72) hours to decide whether to have the communication(s) forwarded. If you do not respond within this time period, the communication(s) will not be forwarded. Method of forward will be determined by JACO Digital. Communication(s) may not be immediately forwarded upon Your election; there may be a delay and communication(s) may be aggregated to be forwarded together. The JACO Digital may begin charging fees for forwarding communications or may change the method by which communications are forwarded without written notice.
In the event You do not respond to communications from the JACO Digital regarding communications received at the JACO Digital Address, JACO Digital may immediately reveal the information You provided pursuant to section 2 and/or cancel the JACO Digital Privacy Services regarding either the JACO Digital Domain in question or with respect to all of Your JACO Digital Domains, depending on the circumstances. This means the Whois directory will revert to displaying Your name, postal address, email address and phone number. This action would be taken because JACO Digital will not become involved in any legal or other matters between You and third parties.

9. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. 
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL EITHER THE PRIMARY REGISTRAR OR JACO DIGITAL BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES FOR ANY REASON WHATSOEVER RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, YOUR DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION, THE JACO DIGITAL PRIVACY SERVICES, YOUR USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PRIMARY REGISTRAR’S OR JACO DIGITAL’S WEB SITE(S) OR THE MATERIALS AND CONTENT OF THE WEB SITE(S) OR ANY OTHER WEB SITES LINKED TO SUCH WEB SITE(S) OR YOUR PROVISION OF ANY PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION TO JACO DIGITAL OR ANY THIRD PARTY.
