XVI. Notice and Take Down Procedures
The Site implements the following "notice and takedown" procedure upon receipt of any notification of claimed copyright infringement. The Site reserves the right at any time to disable access to, or remove any material or activity accessible on or from any Site or any Materials claimed to be infringing or based on facts or circumstances from which infringing activity is apparent. It is the firm policy of the Site to terminate the account of repeat copyright infringers, when appropriate, and the Site will act expeditiously to remove access to all material that infringes on another's copyright, according to the procedure set forth in 17 U.S.C. §512 of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA"). The Site's DMCA Notice Procedures are set forth in the preceding paragraph. If the notice does not comply with Paragraph 19 and §512 of the DMCA, but does comply with three requirements for identifying sites that are infringing according to §512 of the DMCA, the Site shall attempt to contact or take other reasonable steps to contact the complaining party to help that party comply with the notice requirements. When the Designated Agent receives a valid notice, the Site will expeditiously remove and/or disable access to the infringing material and shall notify the affected user. Then, the affected user may submit a counter-notification to the Designated Agent containing a statement made under penalty of perjury that the user has a good faith belief that the material was removed because of misidentification of the material. After the Designated Agent receives the counter-notification, it will replace the material at issue within 10-14 days after receipt of the counter-notification unless the Designated Agent receives notice that a court action has been filed by the complaining party seeking an injunction against the infringing activity. The Site reserves the right to modify, alter or add to this policy, and all users should regularly check back to these Terms and Conditions to stay current on any such changes.
XVII. General Provisions
a. Governing Law
These Terms and Conditions and all matters arising out of or otherwise relating to these Terms and Conditions shall be governed by the laws of the Republic of Cyprus, excluding its conflict of law provisions. The parties agree that the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is specifically excluded from application to these Terms and Conditions. The parties hereby submit to the personal jurisdiction of the state and federal courts of the Republic of Cyprus. Exclusive venue for any litigation or arbitration permitted under this Agreement shall be with the courts located in the Republic of Cyprus.
b. Rights to Injunctive Relief
Both parties acknowledge that remedies at law may be inadequate to provide an aggrieved party with full compensation in the event of the other party's breach of Sections VII or VIII, and that an aggrieved party shall therefore be entitled to seek injunctive relief in the event of any such breach, in addition to seeking all other remedies available at law or in equity.
If there is a dispute between the parties arising out of or otherwise relating to these Terms and Conditions, the parties shall meet and negotiate in good faith to attempt to resolve the dispute. If the parties are unable to resolve the dispute through direct negotiations, then, except as otherwise provided herein, either party may submit the issue to binding arbitration in accordance with the then-existing Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitration shall be conducted in the Republic of Cyprus, and conducted by a single arbitrator, knowledgeable in Internet and e-Commerce. The party bringing the action shall be responsible for paying all costs for arbitration, including the arbitrator's fees. Each party shall bear its own attorneys' fees (except if the matter is for the collection of a debt owed in which case the prevailing party shall be awarded its attorneys fees, all arbitration costs and the arbitrator fees (if applicable), in addition to all other applicable remedies). The arbitrator shall have no authority to award any punitive or exemplary damages; certify a class action; add any parties; vary or ignore the provisions of these Terms and Conditions; and shall be bound by governing and applicable law. The arbitrator shall render a written opinion setting forth all material facts and the basis of his or her decision within thirty (30) days of the conclusion of the arbitration proceeding. This Section shall not apply to any breach (or any allegation which if true would constitute a breach) of Sections VII or VIII, or any other matter relating to intellectual property.
The rights and liabilities of the parties hereto will bind and inure to the benefit of their respective assignees, successors, executors, and administrators, as the case may be. Neither these Terms and Conditions nor any rights granted hereunder may be sold, leased, assigned or otherwise transferred, in whole or in part by you.
If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction or an arbitrator finds any provision of these Terms and Conditions, or any portion thereof, to be unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the remainder of these Terms and Conditions will continue in full force and effect.
f. No Waiver
Failure by either party to enforce any provision of these Terms and Conditions will not be deemed a waiver of future enforcement of that or any other provision, and no waiver of one breach will constitute a waiver of subsequent breaches of the same or of a different nature.
g. Complete Agreement
These Terms and Conditions constitute the entire agreement between the parties with respect to your access and use of any of the Sites and the Materials contained therein, and your membership with any of the Sites, and supersedes and replaces all prior or contemporaneous understandings or agreements, written or oral, regarding such subject matter (except, to the extent applicable, any Download Agreement or similar contract governing the parties' rights and responsibilities in connection with any specific Materials downloadable from a Site). No amendment to or modification of these Terms and Conditions will be binding unless in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of both parties.
