We may, but shall not be obligated to, make any and all modifications to an MDN registration, including without limitation changing the MDN's ASCII-based translation, that we deem necessary or appropriate for the purpose of bringing an MDN registration into conformance with evolving technical standards. Such modifications may be made without notice to you. In the event we elect to make such modifications, you agree to hold us harmless from any claims, liabilities or demands arising from such modifications.
You specifically acknowledge and agree that an MDN shall be considered a domain name for purposes of our Policy and the provisions relating thereto in this Agreement.
