The plans for .gree domain name registration policies are as follows.

1. Registration Eligibility
As stated in Question 20(c), registrations in the .gree TLD will be divided into two categories.

A. GREE SNS Community Operator Registration
Domain names registered in this category must be registered solely by an entity that contributes to operation of the community. A community operator must be one of the following.
- GREE, Inc.
- Companies listed in the annual securities report of GREE, Inc.
- Contributors to the operation of GREE

* Important note: No individual-basis registrations will be allowed. In other words, the board members, employees, and contract staff of the companies listed above are not permitted to be registrants of .gree domain names.

B. GREE SNS Community Member Participant Registration
Domain names registered in this category must be registered by a community operator in conjunction with a community member. Community members who wish to register a domain name under this category will be required to undergo evaluation.

Please refer to Question 18(b)iv for details.

2. Verification of Registration Eligibility
Registration and management of .gree domain names will be via the .gree dedicated account provided by a .gree accredited registrar. Access to .gree dedicated accounts will be limited to the registrants and their authorized administrative contacts, subject to verification of registration eligibility. The verification will be conducted by the registry, and organizations that wish to apply for a .gree dedicated account will be required to provide proof of registration eligibility to the registry via a .gree accredited registrar. All .gree domain name registration phases are subject to the verification. Proposed valid forms of documentary proof include, but are not limited to,
* company seal (registered or unregistered)
* signature of management staff

The registry will conduct verification on a per-registrant basis only. Once verified, a registrant or its authorized administrative contact will have access to the .gree dedicated account, through which it may apply for multiple .gree domain names without further verification, under the condition that the registrant and administrative contact information of an applied-for domain name are identical to the ones the registry has verified. If there are any material changes to the verified information, the registrant or administrative contact must notify the registry of the change.

3. Restrictions on Domain Name Strings
In order to achieve the objectives described above, the company will limit registration to domain names associated with the company, its stakeholders and the community (eg. Service or event names).

4. Whois Accuracy
The registry believes that it is important to keep and publish correct Whois data; registrants will be required to provide and maintain accurate, complete and current Whois data. In addition, no Whois protection service of any kind will be allowed.

5. Content Restrictions
Website content under .gree domain names shall be exclusively related to the company, stakeholders and community. All content must uphold the trust and security of the community.

6. Draft Abusive Use Policy
The registry defines abuse as any activity that may harm the stability and security of the DNS and Internet, including, but not limited to:

- Illegal or fraudulent activities;
- Phishing;
- Pharming;
- Using or distributing malicious software (malware);
- Sending unsolicited bulk messages (spam);
- Posting, trading, or exchanging information that harms minors; and
- Posting information that is offensive to public order or morals.

The registry reserves the right to deny, cancel or transfer any registration or transaction, or place any domain name on lock, hold or similar status, at its sole discretion, to enforce the policy.

In addition, the registry intends to set up an abuse support window (abuse report form and abuse support window) for .gree operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to be able to provide prompt responses to abuse activities.

In case an abuse use is reported, the registry will promptly take appropriate measures in accordance with the suspension flow provided separately (Please refer to Question 28).

7. Uniform Rapid Suspension (URS) System
The Registry is committed to adopting and abiding by the URS System for trademark owners who seek a rapid system to take down domain names which infringe on their rights.

8. Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP)
UDRP is applicable to all .gree domain name registrations.

Enforcement Mechanism
The .gree registration policies are designed specifically to encourage continuous compliance with the eligibility, name selection, as well as content and use policies.

The .gree registration policies necessitate manual review and evaluation by GREE for any and all domain name registration requests that do not originate from the registry, i.e. GREE SNS Community Member Participant Registration. This stringent process ensures that all registrations are compliant with the community policies at the time the domain is registered.

After a domain name is registered, the registry plays a central role in the operation of the website, and will ensure that the site is operated in a manner that is consistent with the eligibility, name selection, and content and use policies.

The registry will also develop a Registration Policy Compliance Dispute Resolution Policy so as to allow third parties to file complaints against purported violations of the policies. Complaints may be filed on at least the following bases:
- eligibility
- name selection
- content and use

Complaints may be filed to the registry directly, and will be handled by the registry or a registry-appointed company.

After receiving a complaint, the registry or the appointed company will investigate claim. If the claim is valid, and depending on the nature of the violation, the complaint will be resolved by one or more of the actions from the following non-exhaustive list.:
- working with the registrant to remedy the situation
- referral of the matter to the abuse point of contact
- suspending, deleting or locking the domain name in question

The responsibility for handling complaints rests on the registry customer support representatives, who may escalate to the registry management depending on the nature of the complaint.
