NOTICE AND TAKEDOWN PROCEDURES
Program hereby implements, and you consent to, the following 'notice and takedown' procedure upon receipt of any notification of claimed copyright infringement. Program reserves the right at any time to disable access to, or remove any material or activity accessible on or from Program or any Promotional Materials claimed to be infringing or based on facts or circumstances from which infringing activity is apparent. It is the firm policy of Program to terminate the account of repeat copyright infringers, when appropriate, and Program will act expeditiously to remove access to all material that infringes on another's copyright, according to the procedure set forth in 17 U.S.C. 512 of the DMCA.
It is important to understand that knowingly making a material misrepresentation concerning alleged copyright infringement may result in significant civil penalties including damages, costs and attorneys fees incurred by the alleged infringer or Program member. In the event your Referral Site is taken down pursuant to the DMCA, re-bills attributed to the noticed ND will be suspended during the 'take down' period. Any repeat violators of the DMCA will be terminated and banned from the Program.
Notification and Take Down Procedures
The Program implements the following “notification and takedown” procedure upon receipt of any notification of claimed copyright infringement. The Program reserves the right at any time to disable access to, or remove any material or activity accessible on or from any Program or any Materials claimed to be infringing or based on facts or circumstances from which infringing activity is apparent. We reserve the right to terminate any account reported for infringing on the intellectual property of any third party, and we will act expeditiously to remove access to all identifiable material that is alleged to infringe on a third party’s copyright, according to the procedure set forth in 17 U.S.C. §512 of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”). The Site’s DMCA Notice Procedures are set forth in the preceding paragraph. If the notice does not comply with §512 of the DMCA, but does comply with three requirements for identifying sites that are infringing according to §512 of the DMCA", the Site shall attempt to contact or take other reasonable steps to contact the complaining party to help that party comply with the notice requirements. When the Designated Agent receives a valid notice, we will expeditiously endeavor to remove and/or disable access to the infringing material and may notify the affected user. Then, the affected user may submit a counter-notification to the above designated agent containing a statement made under penalty of perjury that the user has a good faith belief that the material was removed because of misidentification of the material. After the designated agent receives the counter-notification, we will replace the material at issue within 10-14 days after receipt of the counter-notification unless the designated agent receives notice that a court action has been filed by the complaining party seeking an injunction against the infringing activity. We reserve the right to modify, alter or add to this policy, and all users should regularly check back to these Terms and Conditions to stay current on any such changes.
DMCA Counter-Notification Procedure
If the recipient (the “Recipient”) of a Notice of Claimed Infringement (“Notice”) feels that the Notice is erroneous or false, and/or that allegedly infringing material has been wrongly removed in response to a Notice as outlined above, the Recipient is permitted to submit a counter-notification pursuant to §512(g)(2) and (3) of the DMCA. A counter-notification is the proper method for the Recipient to dispute the removal or disabling of material (the “Material”) pursuant to a Notice. The information that a Recipient provides in a counter-notification must be accurate and truthful, and the Recipient will be liable for any misrepresentations which may cause any claims to be brought against us relating to the Content.
To submit a counter-notification, please provide Our Designated Copyright agent the following information:
A specific description of the material that was removed or disabled pursuant to the Notice. A description of where the material was located within the Site before such material was removed and/or disabled. Please provide the specific URL if possible.
A statement reflecting the Recipient's belief that the removal or disabling of the Material was done so erroneously. For convenience, the following format may be used:
“I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that the referenced material was removed or disabled by the service provider as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.”
The Recipient's physical address, telephone number, and email address. Written notification containing the above information must be signed and sent to:
Global Personals, LLC
225 7th Street, Third Floor
Miami Beach, Florida 33139
Do not send any other information or material to the DMCA Agent. Send ALL other inquiries to: email@example.com.
After receiving a DMCA-compliant counter-notification, our designated copyright agent will forward it to us, and we will then provide the counter-notification to the entity who first provided the Notice concerning the subject material.
Additionally, within ten to fourteen (10-14) days of our receipt of the counter-notification, we will replace or cease disabling access to the disputed material provided that we or our designated copyright agent have not received notice from the entity who first provided the Notice that such entity has filed a legal action pertaining to the disputed material.
