Terms and Conditions

By using the services presented on www.baidu.eu, you ("You" or the "User") consent to be bound by the following Terms and Conditions, which constitute, together with any transactions you accept by means of electronic communications, the sole and full understanding between Baidu Europe B.V. ("Baidu"), a company incorporated under the laws of the Dutchy of the Netherlands.

SERVICES. Baidu offers brokerage service for the entirety of exclusive rights to control an electronic address resolution system governed by the rules of ICANN, commonly referred to as "Domain Name" (or "Domain Names"), or comparable authorities governing variants known as "Top Level Domains".

BROKERAGE. By placing an order, you agree to pay the agreed purchase price in exchange for the right to acquire the rights to such Domain Name by virtue of the records of the registrar ("Registrar") updating the records relating to the authority over the Domain Name with the information supplied by you. Baidu does not warrant or represent that such update will effectively allow you to acquire a legal position comparable to a registered owner of said rights, and Baidu's obligation shall be considered discharged once the database of the registrar reflects the information you provided.

CONFIDENTIALITY. Baidu respects confidentiality, and as such it is our policy that buyers and sellers who order Baidu's Brokerage Service remain anonymous throughout the process of negotiation unless Baidu is otherwise instructed. Baidu records and publishes the sale price and domain name(s) only. Baidu does not release your personal information to public record. Your name or company name and contact information may be displayed within your respective Baidu accounts or may be contained on a purchase and sale agreement at the close of the negotiations. You understand that if either party requests a block of price and domain name record, an additional fee will be applied.
