Digital Millennium Copyright Act
Our policy is to respond to notices of alleged infringement that comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA"). Copyright-infringing materials found on the Site can be identified and removed via our DMCA compliance process listed below and you agree to comply with such process in the event you are involved in any claim of copyright infringement to which the DMCA may be applicable.
If you believe in good faith that a Member or User has infringed your copyright(s), you can request that we take down the infringing material(s) by following the steps in this DMCA compliance process. Please note that we do not make any legal decisions about the validity of your claim.
When a clear and valid Notice is received pursuant to the guidelines set forth below, we may respond by either taking down the allegedly infringing content ("Allegedly Infringing Content") or blocking access to it. We may contact the Notice provider to request additional information.
Under the DMCA, we are required to take reasonable steps to notify the entity who posted the Allegedly Infringing Content ("Alleged Infringer"). The Alleged Infringer is allowed under the law to send us a counter-notification as instructed below ("Counter-Notice"). On receiving a Counter-Notice, we may restore the Allegedly Infringing Content. If we receive notice from the original Notice provider that a legal action has been filed seeking a court order to restrain the Alleged Infringer from engaging in the allegedly infringing activity, we may take down or block the Allegedly Infringing Content.
Anyone making a false or fraudulent Notice or Counter-Notice may be liable for damages under the DMCA, including costs and attorney's fees. If you are unsure of whether certain material infringes your copyright, contact an attorney.

Promotional Relationships and Co-Branded Pages
In some cases we may enter into a promotional relationship with another company in which we prominently display their brand name or trademark on pages of the Site. These pages are known as co-branded pages and these companies are known as co-branded companies. If the page on which you submit information is a co-branded page, or was accessed by clicking on a link on a co-branded page, then we may share your personal information with the associated co-branded company. Co-branded companies may use your personal information in accordance with their own privacy policies. You will need to contact co-branded companies to instruct them directly regarding your preferences for use of your personal information by them. Additionally, you agree that we may use and disclose all such information so submitted to such co-branded companies in the same manner than which we are entitled to use and disclose any information you submit to us.
Some co-branded pages may contain an action pack that a third party such as an advertising company may use to read cookies that it or its clients may have placed on your browser. This technology is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements on such other websites that promote co-branded pages. These third parties may use the information collected through this technology to learn more about your visits to the Site and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. We have been informed by these third parties that unless you are otherwise notified, they do not use your name, address, e-mail address or telephone number and do not link your on-line actions to any information that can be used to identify or contact you. However, because we may not verify that this is the case, you should seek their assurances yourself as we are not accountable for the accuracy of the above statement.
We strive to create relationships with advertising and fulfillment partners that believe in and respect your privacy, too. While we do not control the third-party websites of our partners, we do strongly encourage our partners to post privacy policies clearly and conspicuously and to protect the information of their users.
Any third party with whom we are allowed to share your personal information is authorized to use your personal information in accordance with our contractual arrangements with such third parties and in accordance with their own privacy policies, over which we have no control, and you agree that we are not responsible or liable for any of their actions or omissions. Those who contact you will need to be instructed directly by you regarding your preferences for the use of your personal information by them.
