SECTION E. Consent and Authorisation
(E.1) Under the AFRALO's procedures, your candidacy will be treated
as confidential unless you give the AFRALO your permission to
disclose it or unless the AFRALO is consulting your references and
conducting third-party reference checks from selected sources on a
confidential basis. Third party checks may also be required as part
of a due diligence process necessary before we can accept candidates
for leadership positions in ICANN.
Once selections are made, the AFRALO will make the identities of only
the Selected Nominees public. Although the AFRALO will take
reasonable steps to ensure that its confidentiality procedures are
followed, Candidates and Selected Nominees shall have no claims
against ICANN, the AFRALO, or affiliated persons in the event
information is disclosed despite our adherence to these procedures.
You also authorize the AFRALO to consult with your references, to
investigate other information publicly available about you, and to
conduct additional third-party reference checks. You will not be
entitled to review or access any of the information received,
obtained, generated, or considered by the AFRALO regarding any
Candidate or Selected Nominee, or any of the AFRALO's discussions or
deliberations regarding any Candidate or Selected Nominees.
Candidates and Selected Nominees have no right to challenge or seek
review of the AFRALO's selections.

[ ] NO, I do not agree to these conditions
(E.2) Interim vacancies in 2008
If you are NOT selected this year for any of the preferences
indicated in (A.2) above, would you permit the secretary of this

transfer your SOI to the secretary of the 2008 AFRALO for possible
consideration in the event that a mid-year vacancy occurs? Please
indicate Yes or No:
[ ] YES [ ] NO
This option may be exercised only in the event that a mid-term
vacancy occurs and does not mean you will be included in the pool of
candidates for regular term positions next year. To be considered by
the 2008 AFRALO for a regular vacancy you would need to apply again.
The AFRALO values your interest in being a candidate for the
positions it is charged to fill. We expect and rely upon your
