Dispute Resolution Policy
This Domain Name Dispute Policy is to be followed for disputes with third parties regarding the registration and use of a .ec third or second level domain name (a "Domain"). Disputes you may have with NIC.EC for its non-compliance with the .ec Domain Name Registration Agreement you have executed with NIC.EC (as opposed to disputes a third party may have with you for your registration and use of your Domain) are resolved as set forth in the .ec Domain Name Registration Agreement, not through this Dispute Policy.
For resolution of disputes brought by third parties against Domain registrants, NIC.EC has adopted the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (the "UDRP") created and adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers ("ICANN"). The UDRP is a mandatory administrative procedure to resolve domain name disputes between domain name registrants and third parties through an arbitration process that is intended to be fair, non-partisan and cost-effective. The full text of the UDRP is available at http://www.icann.org/en/dndr/udrp/policy.htm and is incorporated into this Domain Name Dispute Policy and the .ec Domain Name Registration Agreement by this reference.
