COURT ORDER & SUBPOENA POLICY

domains4bitcoins.com (the “Site”) reputation is built on protecting its customers’ privacy. The Site’s policy prohibits sharing customer or account information without express consent from the customer, except to comply with ICANN’s WHOIS publication requirements or when required to comply with law or legal process properly served on the Site or one of our affiliates.

Occasionally we may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide personal information. We will disclose personal information only upon receipt of a court order, subpoena, warrant, or other legal process (collectively “Subpoenas”) to the extent necessary to meet legal, national security, public interest, or law enforcement obligations. 

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW IF YOU ARE SEEKING SUCH INFORMATION:

  1. Submission Process for Subpoenas.  You do not need to name domains4bitcoin.com or 75 Global, LLC as parties to a legal action. Civil court orders and subpoenas must be issued by a U.S. federal court, a Wisconsin State court, or a U.S. or state law enforcement agency. Criminal subpoenas may also be issued by any U.S. state court. You may submit by sending the subpoena, and any supporting documents to both:

  2. Supporting Documentation. The Site reserves the right to request a copy of complaint and any supporting documentation that demonstrates how our customer information is related to the pending litigation and the underlying Subpoena.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SHOULD KNOW:

  1. Notice to Customer. Upon the receipt of a valid Subpoena, unless the circumstances or Subpoena warrant otherwise, the Site may promptly notify the customer whose information is sought via email or U.S. mail.

  2. Response Time. Unless otherwise legally required, in non-emergency circumstances, the Site will ordinarily not produce the requested information, if available, before 10 days after receipt of the Subpoena, provided that the subscriber at issue does not present the Site with notice of having filed a motion to quash the Subpoena or otherwise seeking similar protection from a court. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, the Site reserves the right to respond to requests in any amount of time as it deems appropriate according to the volume of the request. The Site further reserves the right to object to the request on any applicable grounds. The Site reserves the right to charge an administration fee to customer by charging the customer’s domains4bitcoins.com account.

  3. E-mail Policy. The Site complies with the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, 18 U.S.C. §2701 et seq., which prohibits an electronic communications service provider from producing the contents of electronic communications, even pursuant to subpoena or court order, other than in limited circumstances. Therefore, except as required by an order in accordance with this Act, the Site will not produce the content of email or other electronic communications. Whether or not The Site gives its customer advance notice of any such disclosure will be governed by the terms of the order. We reserve the right to request a copy of the complaint and any supporting documentation that demonstrates how the domains4bitcoins email address is related to the pending litigation and the underlying subpoena.

  4. Fees for Subpoena Compliance. The Site will charge the person or entity submitting the subpoena for costs associated with subpoena compliance whenever permitted. Payment must be made within 30 days from the date of receipt of the invoice. Checks should be made out to 75 Global, LLC. The Site will not deliver any information sought by a subpoena until payment is received.

    The Site’s subpoena compliance costs are as follows:

    • Research – Standard rate of $75 per hour. Hourly rate may vary depending on the complexity of the information request and management involvement in providing the subpoenaed information.

    • Shipping charges – at our cost

    • Copies - $.25 per page

    For large requests that require substantial effort by us to respond, we reserve the right to collect an estimated fee in advance of production.

ADDITIONAL FAQS

  1. Bankruptcies and Receiverships. If a domain or website is subject to a bankruptcy proceeding or receivership, it is important to give The Site notice as soon as possible. Bankruptcy and Receivership Orders must be issued in English and be able to be validated as authentic by the Site. The Site reserves the right to refuse action if the orders are outside of the U.S. and unable to be validated to our satisfaction. Orders must list individually any domains or websites that are to be separated from other assets and it must state that the Trustee or Receiver has the authority to manage and sell them.

  2. Settlement & Domain Transfers. In general, customers may privately settle a dispute over a domain or website without the Site’s involvement. A transfer of ownership of such domain or website may be affected by the controlling party through their account panel. In limited circumstances, parties may request the Site’s assistance in effecting a transfer to a new owner under a settlement agreement. If you are seeking our help, at a minimum we will require a copy of the legal settlement agreement notarized by both parties, a list of the affected domain names, and a statement that the litigation will be dismissed with prejudice. Further, the Site reserves the right to require an indemnification agreement from one or more parties.

  3. What to include in the court order. Subpoenas and orders should be as specific as possible, but at a minimum, must include:

    1. The affected domain names.

    2. The specific action that the Site is being requested to take regarding the domain name or associated website.

    3. If plaintiff is seeking control of a customer’s account, the court order must specify the account number. (Please only pursue this option if all domain names in the account are related to the litigation.)

GENERAL

  1. Reservation of Rights. Notwithstanding any of the above, the Site reserves the right to challenge the validity of any Subpoena or otherwise move to quash or take such other action to secure an order from the relevant court that the Site is not required to respond to the Subpoena.

  2. Modification. The Site reserves the right to modify this policy at any time in its sole and absolute discretion. Such modifications are effective immediately upon posting to this site. This policy does not create any enforceable legal rights. Receipt by any of the methods set forth above is for convenience only and does not waive any objections, including the lack of jurisdiction or proper service.
