12. Term; Termination of Use
14. Copyright Complaints
We respect the intellectual property of others, and we ask You to do the same. We may, in appropriate circumstances and at our sole discretion, terminate the access of users who infringe the copyright rights of others. Zingle’s intellectual property policy is to (i) remove or disable access to material that Zingle believes in good faith, upon notice from an intellectual property owner or his or her agent, is infringing the intellectual property of a third party by being made available through the Service, and (ii) remove any Content uploaded to the Service by “repeat infringers.” Zingle considers a “repeat infringer” to be any user that has uploaded Content to or through the Service and for whom Zingle has received more than two takedown notices compliant with the provisions of 17 U.S.C. § 512 with respect to such Content. Zingle has discretion, however, to terminate the account of any user after receipt of a single notification of claimed infringement or upon Zingle’s own determination. If You believe that Your work or content has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide the following information required by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. § 512: (i) A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the work(s) that has/have been allegedly infringed; (ii) identification of works or materials being infringed, or, if multiple works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works; (iii) identification of the specific material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit Zingle to locate the material; (iv) information reasonably sufficient to permit Zingle to contact You, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which You may be contacted; (v) a statement that You have a good faith belief that the use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and; and (vi) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that You are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. Our agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement on this Service can be reached using the contact information above.
15. Dispute Resolution
d. Notice; Process. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by U.S. Mail or electronic mail (“Notice”). Zingle’s address for Notice is: 2270 Camino Vida Roble, Suite K, Carlsbad, CA 92011or email@example.com. The Notice must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, You or Zingle may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by You or Zingle must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If the dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in Your favor with a monetary award that exceeds the last written settlement amount offered by Zingle prior to selection of an arbitrator, Zingle will pay You the highest of the following: (i) the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any; (ii) the last written settlement amount offered by Zingle in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator’s award; or (iii) $15,000.
f. No Class Actions. YOU AND ZINGLE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both You and Zingle agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
g. Modifications to this Arbitration Provision. If Zingle makes any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to Zingle’s address for Notice, You may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to Zingle’s address for Notice, in which case this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes You rejected, will continue to govern any disputes between You and Zingle.
h. Enforceability. If the Section entitled “No Class Actions” is found to be unenforceable or if the entirety of this Dispute Resolution Section is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Dispute Resolution Section will be null.
