The following is an excerpt from the applican'ts response to question #18:

"The mission⁄purpose of the .scor TLD is to provide an authoritative, intuitive and cohesive online space to promote the diverse business of SCOR SE. SCOR SE has two main businesses, both operating in the financial sector, SCOR Global P&C and SCOR Global Life, plus an asset management business, SCOR Global Investments.

A leader of the financial services industry, the diverse SCOR SE businesses consist of many divisions, products and service lines and operate across the globe. As the applicant for the .scor TLD, SCOR SE wishes to extend their leadership of the financial services industry to the Internet with one of the first TLD’s dedicated solely to the provision of brand-specific content. The .scor TLD will also serve to ensure the present and future needs of SCOR SE and its affiliates are met in the face of a continually evolving Internet landscape.

By transitioning its existing domain name portfolio, SCOR SE is afforded the opportunity to consolidate its brand and online presence to the clear and concise .scor TLD. This will strengthen the company’s strong reputation for, and commitment to, innovation and leadership across its operations. Furthermore, the .scor TLD will allow domain name registrations for individual SCOR SE businesses, products, services and affiliates. Furthermore, this will allow for marketing and promotional initiatives in support of SCOR SE’s core strategy.

SCOR SE believes in being client oriented, forging long-term relationships for a true partnership, based on proximity, understanding, flexibility, loyalty, underwriting consistency and stability over the years.

SCOR SE believes the .scor TLD is an extension of these values and will in fact assist the company to achieve its mission to be client oriented and flexible. It will also allow the company to deliver its products and services to customers easily and efficiently via the Internet.

SCOR SE envisions that the .scor TLD will be one of the first Top Level Domains dedicated solely to the provision of content for one single brand. This content will serve to promote the business of SCOR SE whilst providing an online corporate home for the SCOR SE business. This has the potential to strengthen the company’s strong commitment to and reputation for innovation within the financial services industry. New .scor domain names and content on .scor websites will serve the digital needs of the SCOR SE brand and facilitate clear and consistent engagement with customers by SCOR SE. The TLD will ensure that SCOR SE’s digital presence is capable of fulfilling the needs of the company’s growing customer base and the ever-changing, ever-expanding Internet landscape.

To enable this TLD operating model, SCOR SE intends to request an exemption from clause 1b of the Registry Operator Code of Conduct (Specification 9) pursuant to clause 6 of the Code of Conduct to enable it to register domain names in its own right in the .scor TLD. Registrations will not be made commercially available; all domain name registrations in the TLD will be registered to and maintained by SCOR SE for its own exclusive use. SCOR SE will not sell, distribute or transfer control or use of any registration in the TLD to any third party that is not an affiliate, as that term is defined in clause 2.9(c) of the Registry Agreement."[4]
