ICANN and [Registrar Name] have entered into a Registrar Accreditation Agreement ("RAA"), of which this .museum Appendix ("Appendix") is a part. Pursuant to and subject to the RAA, Registrar and ICANN hereby agree as follows:
4. Need for Agreement with Sponsor. Registrar’s obligation under RAA Subsection 3.1 to operate as a registrar for the .museum TLD is conditioned upon the .museum Sponsor selecting Registrar as one authorized to act as a .museum registrar, and upon Registrar and the .museum Sponsor having an Authorizing Agreement in effect.
5. Sponsored TLD/Sponsor’s Delegated Authority. Registrar acknowledges that the .museum TLD is a sponsored TLD, over which the .museum Sponsor has been delegated policy-formulation authority under its TLD Sponsorship Agreement with ICANN. The scope of delegation is currently stated at <http://www.icann.org/tlds/agreements/museum/sponsorship-agmt-att2-20aug01.htm> and includes topics that will affect the manner in which Registrar conducts its business of registering domain names in the .museum TLD. (The delegation includes, for example, “Practices of ICANN-Accredited Registrars selected by Sponsor with respect to Registered Names and their registration.”) Registrar agrees to comply with the requirements established by the .museum Sponsor within its delegated scope of policy-formulation authority.
6. Deviations from Obligations of this Agreement Due to Delegation. The .museum Sponsor may develop and implement a policy within the scope of its authority granted by its TLD Sponsorship Agreement with ICANN that requires Registrar to deviate from one or more obligations of this RAA. In that event, the .museum Sponsor will notify ICANN in writing of the policy and the manner in which the .museum Sponsor believes that Registrar’s obligation(s) under this RAA should be modified. Within thirty days after this notification, ICANN will either:
(a) notify Registrar and the .museum Sponsor in writing of the modification(s) to Registrar’s obligations under this RAA that in ICANN’s opinion is (are) appropriate to allow Registrar to comply with the .museum Sponsor policy. In case of this notification by ICANN, Registrar may act in conformity with the modified obligation(s) stated in the ICANN notification.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have caused this .museum Appendix to be executed by their duly authorized representatives.
