The following is excerpted from the applicant's response to question #18:

"Travelers offers a wide variety of insurance and surety products, as well as risk management services, to numerous types of businesses, organizations and individuals. Our products are distributed primarily through U.S. independent insurance agents and brokers. We have an expanding market presence internationally with business operations in Canada, the U.K., Ireland and a joint venture in Brazil with JMalucelli.

We will initially conduct consumer marketing, technical research along with monitoring of market trends and consumer behavior to determine the most effective and secure way for Travelers to market and provide its insurance and financial services through the TLD. During this initial research period, Travelers will not use the TLD to provide any information or services to the public, but reserves the right to use the TLD for internal purposes, including consumer and security-related testing of the TLD for later public use. After the research is completed, Travelers reserves the right to continue to use the TLD only for internal purposes; or if an adequately secure public use is desired and proven viable, to expand use of the TLD accordingly. The proposed .northlandinsurance gTLD is a restricted TLD[.]"[3]
