Given the fact that the Applicant is applying for a generic top-level domain
where geographic names as domain names could have a strong importance for health
care professionals and patients, it has a vested interest in providing its
visitors, clients and business partners a clear and predictable naming scheme in
the .MED gTLD. Given the sensitive nature of these domain names, the Applicant
may indeed develop plans in order to register domain names that exclusively
contain geographic names (country names, city names, names of regions, etc.), in
close collaboration with national authorities that are supervising the sale or
rendering of health care related products or services.

However, if such domain names will be registered, the Applicant will do so
considering the following confines:

(1) these domain names will be exclusively registered in the name of the
Applicant ⁄ Registry Operator, or in the name of such official supervising
national body; these names will never be registered in the name of a third
party, unless agreed upon otherwise with the authority competent for giving
its consent in accordance with Specification 5 of the Registry Agreement;

(2) where consents are required prior to the registration and use of a domain
name referred to and in accordance with Specification 5 of the Registry
Agreement, the Applicant will obtain such consents before actually
registering, delegating and using these domain names.

In any case the registration, delegation and use of domain names corresponding
to geographic names will at all times be done in the best interest of:

- the Applicant; and

- in order to directly and indirectly promote local activity in the geographic
locations of which the name has been registered in accordance with (1)
