About these Terms
This Terms of Service along with any supplemental terms or policies posted on the Platform constitute the whole legal agreement between you and Pool regarding your use of the Platform. We may change or improve any of our products or services, or the Platform. We may also modify this Terms of Service from time to time. If you do not agree with the changes, simply stop using the product, service or the Platform. You may also elect to cancel any fee-based product or service before the changes take effect. Your use of the Platform after the effective date of any changes means that you agree to the changes. To prevent violations and enforce this Terms of Service and remediate any violations, Pool reserves the right - where reasonably technically feasible - to take any technical, legal, and other actions that we deem, in our sole discretion, necessary and appropriate without notice to you. We will alert you about any changes by updating the “Last updated” date of these Terms of Service, and you waive any right to receive specific notice of each such change. It is your responsibility to periodically review these Terms of Service to stay informed of updates. You will be subject to, and will be deemed to have been made aware of and to have accepted, the changes in any revised Terms of Service by your continued use of a Platform after the date such revised Terms of Service are posted.
This Terms of Service does not replace, modify, or limit in any way any contract or agreement between you and Pool with respect to reservation or registration of a TLD or Domain Name offered on our Platform, including, without limitation, the TLD and Domain Name Agreement. If there is a conflict between this Terms of Service and any additional terms you enter into regarding any product, service or the Platform, the additional terms will control for that conflict.
