13.2Procedure for Notification. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA") provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Site infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe that your work has been copied and posted on the Site in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide Our copyright agent with the following information: (a) An electronic or physical signature of the copyright owner or of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest; (b) A description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed; (c) A description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Site; (d) Your address, telephone number, and email address; (e) A written statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and, (f) A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owners behalf. Any notification by a copyright owner or a person authorized to act on its behalf that fails to comply with requirements of the DMCA shall not be considered sufficient notice and shall not be deemed to US as actual knowledge of facts or circumstances from which infringing material or acts are evident. Our copyright agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement can be reached at: Email: email@example.com
13.3Please note that any person who knowingly misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability. If you are unsure whether the material available online infringes your copyright, We suggest that you contact an attorney before sending us a notice.
