  1. Access and Control Policy
    When a new account or domain, as applicable, is registered with or transferred to Webionic.com or with one of its affiliates, the process requires and results in the creation of the following within the records of Webionic.com, in association with said new account or domain: i) Name of person registering; ii) email address; iii) user name; iv) password; and, v) associated payment information, such as Visa, Mastercard, etc., Credit Card Number & name thereon, etc.

    • Subscriber acknowledges and accepts said access and control policy and procedure, agrees not to bring any claim in the form of a lawsuit or otherwise against Webionic.com arising out of its following said policy and procedure, agrees immediately to dismiss any claim so brought, and hereby releases Webionic.com from all liability and all claims for damages or any other liability whatsoever that may arise out of Webionic.com's following said policy and procedure.
  2. Transfer of Ownership
    Webionic.com is not responsible to determine ownership of websites hosted by, accounts opened with, or domains registered with Webionic.com or its affiliates.  By accessing Webionic.com's system, registering, or using any of the services provided by Webionic.com, the Subscriber, or any other person so accessing, registering or using, hereby represents and warrants that the information provided in connection with said registration, including as well information concerning ownership of websites, domains, and accounts, is true, accurate, and complete in each material detail.  Any disputes arising regarding the ownership of any account, website, or domain hosted by, opened with, or registered with Webionic.com or any of its affiliates are subject to the terms and conditions of this section of these Terms.

  3. Disputing Site or Account Ownership
    Disputes sometimes arise between or among multiple persons claiming ownership of or rights in a site hosted by Webionic.com or in an associated Webionic.com account.  Webionic.com is not obligated to resolve any such disputes.  If multiple persons are claiming ownership of or rights in a site hosted by Webionic.com or in an associated Webionic.com account, and, in Webionic.com's sole judgment, there is not certainty as to the ownership of or rights in said site or account, then Webionic.com will, to the extent of its knowledge and ability, notify said persons of the dispute and demand that said persons promptly, conclusively, and finally resolve the dispute in a manner which makes clear who the owner(s) and/or interest holder(s) is/are and in a manner which relieves Webionic.com of all liability or obligations concerning the dispute.  If the disputing persons fail so to resolve the dispute within what Webionic.com, in its sole judgment, deems to be a reasonable time, then Webionic.com, at its option and without any obligation to do so, may, in accordance with and subject to the laws of the State of Virginia, file an interpleader action in a court of competent jurisdiction within the State of Virginia for the purpose of allowing the contending persons to resolve said dispute and to reach certainty regarding ownership of or rights in said site and/or account.  The person or persons conclusively and finally determined by the interpleader action to be the rightful owner(s) or interest holder(s) of said site and/or associated account shall be obligated to reimburse Webionic.com for all of its expenses relative to said interpleader action including without limit all its court costs and reasonable attorney fees.“   All amounts owed to Webionic.com under this section shall be deemed due and payable immediately upon thirty (30) days after judgment or settlement is reached.
