Superlink Terms of Service


Last Updated: 02/14/23


Thank you for using Superlink Technologies, Inc.’s (“Superlink”) domain name registrar and related customization and community services (the “Services”). These Terms of Service (the “Agreement”) outline your use of the Services or purchase of any second level domains (“SLDs”) or any other product (“Assets”), and other important topics related to Superlink’s Services, such as arbitration.  These Assets are derived from top level domains maintained on the Handshake root zone.  Domains via the Handshake root zone are sometimes referred to as part of a category of “blockchain domains,” which are experimental and work differently than traditional domain names under the Domain Name System.  Please read the following carefully.  We also have a privacy policy, which outlines how we handle your data.

Agreement to Terms

This Agreement is entered into by Superlink and the entity or person agreeing to these terms ("Customer" or “You” or “Your”) by Customer's access to and use of the Services and Assets via the website and its web pages located primarily at offered by Superlink (“Site”), a Delaware corporation.

Changes to these Terms or Site

This Agreement is effective when the Customer is presented with this Agreement and proceeds to use the Services (the "Effective Date"). These terms may be updated and presented again to the Customer from time to time, especially as we consider decentralization methods for SLDs.  Continued use of the Services will mean that Customer accepts the updated terms. If Customer does not agree to the Agreement or does not meet the age requirement, please stop accessing this website and using the Services and Assets.

Age Requirements

By accessing the Services, you confirm that you are not barred from purchasing or receiving the Services or Assets or accessing the Site under United States law and that you are able to bind the respective individual or entity.  You confirm that you are at least 18 years old and meet the minimum age of digital consent.  

Assumption of Risk

We are constantly improving the Services, Assets, and Site to make them better. The Services are subject to modification and change. No guarantees are made with respect to the Services, Assets, or Site’s quality, stability, uptime, or reliability. In particular, there is no guarantee of specific name availability.

The value of the Assets are subjective and given the many unknowns about the technology, may not provide any value to You aside from the reservation of a second level domain on a ledger maintained by Superlink. The Assets may not resolve in all internet browsers or have other functionality You might want. While we are dedicated to improving the underlying technology and our Services, we have no control over and make no guarantees or promises with respect to the functioning of any Asset.


There is a risk of name collisions with other blockchains, ICANN-regulated domains, and other technologies. While the SLDs sold via Superlink stem from Handshake TLDs, there is inherent risk that there could be conflicting issues with other internet names.


The regulatory regime governing blockchain technologies remains uncertain, and new regulations, law, or policy may materially adversely affect the development and performance of the Services and utility of the Assets.


The Customer is responsible for the security of its account and password associated with maintaining and accessing its Assets. You accept the inherent security risks of providing information and conducting transactions over the internet.


The Site may allow You to access third-party websites. We provide access as a convenience and are not responsible for the content, products, or services on or available from those websites. You acknowledge that You have sole responsibility for, and assume all risk arising from Your use of third-party websites.

To the extent you attempt to transfer the Assets to a third party, that third party must independently agree to the Agreement in force at the date of transfer for the transfer to be effective.

When You purchase or otherwise acquire Assets You represent, acknowledge, and agree to the following:

a.   Customer is not acquiring Asset(s) as an investment and has no expectation of economic benefit or profit as a holder of Asset(s);

b.   Customer is acquiring Asset(s) for Customer’s own use or as a gift and not with a present intention or view to sell the Asset(s) to anyone else;

c.   Customer will not acquire any equity or other ownership or legal interest in Superlink by virtue of owning Asset(s);

d.   Customer will not portray Asset(s) as an investment or an opportunity to obtain an economic benefit or profit;

e.    Customer has an adequate understanding of the functionality and characteristics of Asset(s);

f.   Customer’s acquisition and use of Asset(s) complies with applicable laws and regulations in Your jurisdiction to its knowledge and does not rely on Superlink for this knowledge, including, without limitation, legal capacity, regulatory restrictions, and governmental consents;

g.   Customer will not use Asset(s) for any illegal purpose or for any kind of wagering, betting, or gambling; and

h.    Customer will comply with applicable tax obligations arising from Customer’s acquisition of Asset(s).

Disclaimers and No Warranties by Superlink

Superlink reserves the right to investigate complaints or reported violations of our Terms of Service and to take any action we deem appropriate including but not limited to reporting any suspected unlawful activity to law enforcement officials, regulators, or other third parties and disclosing any information necessary or appropriate to such persons or entities relating to user profiles, e-mail addresses, usage history, posted materials, IP addresses, and internet traffic information.

Dispute Resolution and Governing Law


THE GOVERNING LAW AND FORUM CHOICE IS APPLICABLE AND WILL APPLY REGARDLESS IF YOU ARE A RESIDENT OF A JURISDICTION WHERE APPLICABLE LAW PROHIBITS ARBITRATION OF DISPUTES.  Sorry for putting that in caps, but hopefully You read it carefully. We're talking about serious and reasonably meritorious legal claims, not personal disputes that don't cause economic harm.


The parties will try in good faith to settle any Dispute within 30 days after any Dispute arises. As part of this informal resolution process, You must deliver Your written notice via first-class mail to 2261 Market Street #5130, San Francisco, CA 94114 with an email copy to If the Dispute is not resolved within 30 days, it shall be resolved by arbitration by the American Arbitration Association’s International Centre for Dispute Resolution in accordance with its Expedited Commercial Rules in force as of the date of this Agreement ("Rules").


The parties will mutually select one arbitrator. The arbitration will be conducted in English in Santa Clara County, California, USA.


Either party may apply to any competent court for injunctive relief necessary to protect its rights pending resolution of the arbitration. The arbitrator may order equitable or injunctive relief consistent with the remedies and limitations in the Agreement.

The arbitral award will be final and binding on the parties and its execution may be presented in any competent court, including any court with jurisdiction over either party or any of its property.

Each party will bear its own lawyers’ and experts’ fees and expenses, regardless of the arbitrator’s final decision regarding the Dispute.

Payment and Billing

Superlink may invoice You for Your use of the Services or purchase of Assets through an unaffiliated, third party payment service provider. The third party service provider’s terms of service shall govern and supersede this Agreement in case of conflict.  


At any point prior to decentralization, if your use of the Assets violates this Agreement, Superlink may at its sole discretion revoke your license to the Asset(s) in exchange for a full refund.  If You are unhappy with any Service or Asset, please contact us at and we will work to address the issue.

Force Majeure

Neither party will be liable for failure or delay in performance to the extent caused by circumstances beyond its reasonable control, including acts of God, natural disasters, terrorism, riots, or war.

No Agency

This Agreement does not create any agency, partnership, or joint venture between the parties.


If any part of this Agreement is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, the rest of the Agreement will remain in effect.

No Third-Party Beneficiaries

This Agreement does not confer any benefits on any third party unless it expressly states that it does.

No Waiver

Any failure by Superlink to enforce any right or term of this Agreement will not be

considered a waiver of such right or term. The waiver of any such right or term will be

effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Superlink. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.



The sections and obligations in this Agreement that a reasonable person would expect to survive this agreement, will. Particularly the IP and privacy sections.
