Terms and Conditions
Assigning: .CORSICA domains are open to anyone that satisfies at least one of the following criteria:
→ An entity in Corsica:
A company with headquarters located in Corsica or a company having its headquarters outside Corsica with a secondary establishment registered in Corsica → A Corsican resident
The registrant can be a natural person with a valid address in Corsica → Diaspora and cultural link, family or identity link with Corsica
Any physical person which has an indirect or direct link (economic, social, cultural, familial, historical or other) with Corsica and who has documentation proving this link
In addition to the above-mentioned criteria, the applicant of a .CORSICA must, if he creates a website, create and maintain at least one page of the website in the Corsican language. The page in Corsican must be displayed on the home page and displayed at the latest 3 months after the initial publication of the website.
You acknowledge that you must satisfy the eligibility criteria on a permanent basis during the life cycle of the domain name. When you no longer satisfy these criteria, you must reach Gandi in a timely manner no later than 14 calendar days after the change of your situation that could hinder your eligibility in light of the above-mentioned criteria and request that the domain be cancelled, suspended, placed on hold, deleted or transferred.
After the validation of your order you must forward your documentation to GANDI. Any documents will be assessed with scrutiny by the Registry and GANDI.
If Your documents are incomplete, inaccurate or insufficient, GANDI will notify you of such irregularity. You will then have 5 days to correct, amend, complete your application in order to satisfy the eligibility criteria set up by the Registry. Failing the above, your application will be put on hold or will be deleted.
After the GoLive phase of the .CORSICA extension, no proofs will be requested by Gandi during the registration of the domain name unless otherwise requested. Nonetheless, the Registry reserves the right to request documentation during the life cycle of the domain name, and may to its sole discretion and upon his own initiative, undertake the assessment:
-of the eligibility criteria that the Registrant satisfies and request that you provide the necessary evidence of your rights in light of the three eligibility criteria listed above
-of the contact details you provided (including when you update them)
-of the content of the website in .CORSICA in light of the requirement to post at least one page in Corsican and to comply with the mission and purpose of the .CORSICA extension
In case of any doubt regarding the accuracy of the information provided or in case of detection of an infringement of the policies of the Registry, you will be notified and you shall be required, within 14 calendar days, to answer the request of the Registry. A lack of response within the requested deadline may lead to the cancellation or the deletion of the domain.
If the Registry deems that you are not eligible because you do not satisfy the eligibility criteria, you infringe on the policies laid down by the Registry or you data are inaccurate, the Registry can decide at its complete discretion to cancel, lock, place on hold, transfer, or delete the domain name without notifying you of their decision to do so and without remedy available to you.
