We take the intellectual property rights of others seriously and require that Our Customers and Users do the same. We strive to respond quickly when We receive proper notice of an intellectual property infringement by removing or disabling access to the allegedly infringing material. When We remove or disables access in response to a notice, We make a reasonable attempt to contact the affected Customer or User, provide information about the notice and removal, and, in cases of alleged copyright infringement, provide information about how to submit a counter notice. We may also provide a copy of the infringement notice, including the name and email address of the reporting party, to the affected Customer or User.
We comply with the provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act applicable to internet service providers (17 U.S.C. §512, as amended, the "DMCA"). The DMCA establishes a process for addressing claims of copyright infringement that We have implemented for Our Services.
If you own intellectual property or have authority to act on behalf of the owner of intellectual property and want to report a claim that a third-party is infringing upon such property through Our Service, please send a notice that includes all of the items below and We will expeditiously take appropriate action:
A description of the intellectual property that you claim is being infringed;
A description of the material you claim is infringing and that you want removed or access to which you want disabled and the URL or other location of that material;
Your address, telephone number, and email address;
The following statement: "I have a good faith belief that the use of the intellectual property I am complaining of is not authorized by the owner of the intellectual property, its agent, or the law (e.g., as a fair use)";
The following statement: "The information in this notice is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, I am the owner, or authorized to act on behalf of the owner, of the intellectual property or of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed"; and
An electronic or physical signature of the owner of the intellectual property or a person authorized to act on the owner's behalf.
We may request additional information before processing a notice, such as identity verification of the reporting party or documentation regarding the claimed right. We may reject notices or counter notices that contain information We believe is false, fraudulent, incomplete, or otherwise submitted in bad faith. We also reserve the right to take action against abusers of this policy. For this notification to be effective, you must provide it to Our designated agent at:
Michael Penza, DMCA Designated Agent
PO Box 585
Webster, NY 14580
By email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We may, in appropriate circumstances, disable or terminate the accounts of users who may be repeat infringers.
This process does not limit Our ability to pursue any other remedies We may have to address suspected infringement.
You may inquire about DMCA notifications with Our designated agent by calling +1-585-314-1934.
In accordance with the DMCA, We accept counter notices for copyright notices only. When We receive a DMCA counter notice, We will provide a copy of the counter notice to the original complaining party. The removed material may be replaced or access to it may be restored 10 business days after the counter notice is processed, unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the allegedly infringing party and informs Us of this action. Please note that under Section 512(f) of the DMCA, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability. You acknowledge and agree that if you fail to fully comply with all of the requirements listed above, your DMCA notice may not be valid.
