from a particular registrar to Itweebs or from Itweebs to another registrar. Therefore, you hereby represent that you have the full and complete authority as the holder of the registration and domain to initiate any transfer, or as a contact listed on the current registration,

this Agreement, which will be sufficient cause for cancellation of your registration. You further agree that your failure to respond to inquiries made by Itweebs to the e-mail address of your administrative, billing, or technical contact will constitute a material breach of this Agreement,
which will be sufficient cause for immediate cancellation of your Registration.

domain name allocation, requires that we collect information during the domain name registration process.
