Given the fact that the Applicant is an umbrella organization for various member clubs on regional and local level in Germany, it has a vested interest in providing its visitors, members and business partners a clear and predictable naming scheme in the .ADAC TLD. Since members are affiliated to a regional and possibly also to a local club of the Applicant in Germany, the Applicant may indeed develop plans in order to register domain names that exclusively contain geographic names (city names, names of regions, etc.).
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 its Stakeholders, and not in the name of a third party that is not controlled by the Applicant Registry Operator, 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:
1) the Applicant; and
2) in order to directly and indirectly promote the local activities of the Applicant`s members in the geographic locations of which the name has been registered in accordance with the above.
