Online Pharmacy Policy

a. Definitions.

An “Online Pharmacy” means a website that sells or facilitates the sale of drugs (e.g., prescription medicines). “Applicable Laws” means the laws and regulations of a) the jurisdiction where the online pharmacy dispenses drugs from and b) the jurisdiction where the online pharmacy offers to dispense or ship drugs to, and the Irish jurisdiction. “Notices” means any and all notices as provided by LegitScript.

b. Abuse Policy.

Domain names registered with Blacknight Internet Solutions Limited (Blacknight) may not be used to facilitate the sale of drugs in violation of Applicable Laws. This expressly includes, but is not limited to, the sale of prescription drugs without a prescription based on a prior in-person examination, except where such is expressly permitted by Applicable Laws, or the selling of unapproved drugs (e.g., falsified medicines, counterfeit drugs, or drugs unapproved for sale). Where Blacknight is of the opinion, or receives notice from LegitScript that a domain is violating the applicable laws, then the domain will be suspended pending full investigation.

c. Domain Name Suspension.

Blacknight may SUSPEND and PERMANENTLY lock online pharmacy domains that appear in breach of our ONLINE PHARMACY POLICY without prior notice to you. Suspended online pharmacy domain names will remain locked and CANNOT be transferred away to another Registrar until and unless Blacknight investigations are completed to their satisfaction and they are of the reasonable opinion that there is no breach, or where LegitScript notifies Blacknight that the domain name is no longer classified as operating in violation of this section.

d. Sole Responsibility.

It is your sole responsibility to be familiar with, and ensure that your website complies with Applicable Laws. You agree that marketing prescription drugs to a jurisdiction despite not being appropriately licensed to dispense prescription drugs there, or selling drugs online in a way that does not comply with Applicable Laws, constitutes fraud and is a violation of this agreement.

e. Indemnification.

You hereby agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from any and all loss occasioned by you as a result of us suspending your domain name. You also agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from any complaints or claims made against you by third parties and any loss that occurs due to any third party claims. Further, you hereby agree to indemnify and hold us harmless if LegitScript designates a domain name you have registered as operating in violation of this section.
