If you are applying to Register a Domain Name, the onus is on you to ensure the registration and use of a domain name does not contravene any third party's rights (such as those pertaining to a registered Trade Mark). If your domain name infringes on other party's registered Trade Mark, you could be sued for infringement! Oznet acts as an agent on your behalf in registering your desired Domain Name with the appropriate Registry. Once a Domain Name licence is granted, it is subject to the Domain Administration's "Licence Terms and Conditions". Domain renewal when due is your own responsibility.

In relation to every condition and warranty expressed in this Agreement and to the extent that the warranties implied under the Trade Practices Act cannot be excluded, Our liability for any loss arising as a result of or in relation to the supply of the Services, including any economic or consequential loss which may be sustained or incurred, is hereby limited to the supply of the services again, or the payment of the cost of having the services supplied again.

Chat Rooms We do not allow clients to install their own chat rooms. These tend to be large system hogs and we cannot allow it as an account option. However, we do provide a choice of Java chatrooms for a small extra charge that will more than fill your needs and run without hindering the performance of the machine for others.

Background Running Programs and Daemons We may allow programs to run continually in the background. These are considered upon application and an extra charge will be incurred based on system resources used and operational maintenance needed.
