eCom is committed to complying with copyright and related laws, and requires all users of the Site to comply with these laws. All images and content contained within this Website were either produced directly by eCom or were procured legally through digital services or electronic sources which have been deemed not to violate intellectual property rights or copyright laws.  You may not store, post, modify, distribute, reproduce in any way, use or disseminate any material or content though the Site in any manner that constitutes an infringement of eCom’s or a third party’s intellectual property rights, including rights granted by copyright law.  Owners of copyrighted works who believe that their rights under copyright law have been infringed may take advantage of certain provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) to report alleged infringements. eCom does not, and will not, make any legal decisions about the validity of a claim of infringement or the possible defenses to a claim. Upon our receipt of a proper notice of claimed infringement under the DMCA, we will respond expeditiously to remove, or disable access to, the material claimed to be infringing and will follow the procedures specified in the DMCA to resolve the claim between the notifying party and the alleged infringer who provided the content in issue. You acknowledge and agree that the extent of any copyright violation damage will be the expeditious removal or disabling of access to said material and no other compensation shall be granted.  eCom may contact the notice provider to request additional information. eCom reserves the right to disregard a notice that is not in compliance with the DMCA. Under the DMCA, eCom is required to take reasonable steps to notify the user who posted the allegedly infringing content. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send us a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA. Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Site should be sent to the address below.

Anyone making a false or fraudulent notice or counter-notice may be liable for damages under the DMCA, including costs and attorneys' fees.  To be effective, your Notification of Claimed Infringement must be in writing, sent to our designated agent listed below and contain the following information:

  1. An electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright or other intellectual property interest;
  2. A description of the copyrighted work or other intellectual property that you claim has been infringed;     
  3. A description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located to permit us to locate the material;
  4. Your contact information, including your name, address, telephone number, and email address;
  5. A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright or intellectual property owner, its agent, or the law; and
  6. A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the information contained in your report is accurate and that you are the copyright or intellectual property owner or authorized to act on the copyright or intellectual property owner's behalf.
