  17. Miscellaneous
    • 17.1 Notice and Modifications. Import.io may provide you with notices, including those regarding changes to Import.io’s terms and conditions, by email, regular mail, or postings on the Service. Notice will be deemed given twenty-four hours after email is sent, unless Import.io is notified that the email address is invalid. Alternatively, we may give you legal notice by mail to a postal address, if provided by you through the Service. In such case, notice will be deemed given three days after the date of mailing. Notice posted on the Service is deemed given five (5) days following the initial posting. Import.io reserves the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to our Users, provided that you may opt out of certain means of notification as described in these Terms. Import.io is not responsible for any automatic filtering you or your network provider may apply to email notifications we send to the email address you provide us. Import.io may, in its sole discretion, modify or update these Terms from time to time, and so you should review this page periodically. When we change the Agreement in a material manner, we will update the ‘last modified’ date at the bottom of this page and notify you that material changes have been made to the Agreement. Your continued use of the Service after any such change constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms of Service. If any such revision is unacceptable to you, your only remedy is to terminate your Import.io User Account. If you do not agree to any of these terms or any future Terms of Service, do not use or access (or continue to access) the Service.
    • 17.2 Waiver. The failure of Import.io to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Any waiver of any provision of these Terms will be effective only if in writing and signed by Import.io.
    • 17.3 Severability. If any provision of these Terms is held to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be limited or eliminated from these Terms to the minimum extent necessary and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions; except that in the event of unenforceability of the universal Class Action/Jury Trial Waiver, the entire arbitration agreement shall be unenforceable.
    • 17.4 Assignment. These Terms and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Import.io without restriction.
    • 17.5 Survival. Upon termination of these Terms, any provision which, by its nature or express terms should survive, shall survive such termination or expiration, including, but not limited to, Sections 3 and 8 through 21.

  19. Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) Information.  Import.io respects the intellectual property rights of third parties and responds to allegations that copyrighted material has been posted, uploaded or shared on or through the Service without authorization from the copyright holder in accordance with the safe harbor set forth in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”). Import.io will also, in appropriate circumstances and at its discretion, disable and/or terminate the accounts of users who may infringe or repeatedly infringe the copyrights of others in accordance with the DMCA.
    • 18.1 Notification of Alleged Copyright Infringement.  The DMCA provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you have a good faith belief regarding the use of materials on the Service infringes your copyright, you may send to Import.io a notice requesting that the material be removed, or access to it be blocked. If you believe that your work has been copied and made available through the Service in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, you may send a written document to Import.io’s Designated Agent (as set forth below) that contains the following (a “Notice”):
      1. A description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed and, if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a list of all such works.
      2. Identification of the URL or other specific location that contains the material that you claim infringes your copyright described in Item 1 above. You must provide us with reasonably sufficient information to locate the allegedly infringing material.
      3. A physical or electronic signature of the copyright holder or a person authorized to act on his or her behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
      4. A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or applicable law.
      5. A statement by you that the information contained in your Notice is accurate and that you attest under the penalty of perjury that you are the copyright owner or that you are authorized to act on the owner’s behalf.
      6. Your name, mailing address, telephone number, and email address.
    • 18.2  If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright/ for details. Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Service should be sent to Import.io’s designated agent:

      Name
      Address
      Email (copyright@import.io)

    • 18.3  Please note that you may be liable for damages, including court costs and attorneys fees, if you misrepresent that content uploaded by a Service user is infringing your copyright. It is suggested that you consult with your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice.
    • 18.4  Upon receiving a proper Notice, Import.io will remove or disable access to the allegedly infringing material. We will also advise the alleged infringer of the DMCA Counter Notice Procedure described below by which the alleged infringer may respond to your claim and request that we restore this material.
    • 18.5  Counter Notice Procedure.  If you believe your own copyrighted material has been removed from the Site in error, you may submit a written Counter Notice to our Designated Agent (as identified above) that includes the following:
      1. Identification of the material that has been removed or disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled.
      2. A statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court in which your address is located, or if your address is outside the United States, the Northern District of California or any other judicial district in which Import.io may be found.
      3. A statement that you will accept service of process from the party that filed the Notice or the party’s agent.
      4. Your name, address and telephone number.
      5. A statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material in question was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.
      6. Your physical or electronic signature.
    • 18.6  If you send our Designated Agent a valid, written Counter Notice meeting the requirements described above, we will restore your removed or disabled material within 10 to 14 business days from the date we receive your Counter Notification, unless our Designated Agent first receives notice from the party filing the original Notice informing us that such party has filed a court action to restrain you from engaging in infringing activity related to the material in question.  Please note that if you misrepresent that the disabled or removed content was removed by mistake or misidentification, you may be liable for damages, including costs and attorney’s fees.
    • 18.7  Repeat Infringer Policy.  In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable laws, we will, at our discretion, disable and/or terminate access to the Service by users who may infringe or repeatedly infringe the copyrights of others.
