6. COPYRIGHTS. Infoworks respects the copyright and intellectual property ownership rights of others. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (“DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that any material used or displayed on or through our Sites infringes your copyright, you may send us a notice to our Copyright Agent requesting that the material be removed or access to it blocked.
For the notice to be effective, it must be in writing and must include the following information: (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow us to locate the material on our Sites; (d) the name, address, telephone number and email address (if available) of the complaining party; (e) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, and your content has been removed or access to content has been blocked, the DMCA permits you to send us a counter-notice. For the counter-notice to be effective, it must be in writing and must include the following information: (a) physical or electronic signature of the user or a person authorized to act on behalf of the user; (b) identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled; (c) a statement under penalty of perjury that the user has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled; (d) the user’s name, address, and telephone number; and (e) statement that the user consents to the jurisdiction of the County of Santa Clara, State of California and that the user will accept service of process from the person who submitted the Notification of Claimed Infringement or an agent of such person.
Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.copyright.gov for details. DMCA notices and counter-notices regarding our Sites and Apps should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org or Infoworks.io, Inc., Attn: Privacy Contact, 490 S California Ave, Suite 200, 195 Palo Alto, California 94306, United States.
