9. DIGITAL MILLENNIUM COPYRIGHT ACT
SARDIN respects the intellectual property rights of others and takes the protection of copyrights and all other intellectual property very seriously, and we ask our users to do the same. SARDIN’s intellectual property policy is to (1) remove material that appears in its sole discretion to infringe upon the intellectual property rights of others, and (2) remove any content posted by and terminate the access rights of any “repeat infringer” (i.e., any user that has uploaded content to the Site and for whom SARDIN has received more than two takedown notices compliant with 17 U.S.C. § 512(c) with respect to such content). SARDIN has discretion, however, to terminate the account of nay user after receipt of a single notification of claimed infringement or upon SARDIN’s own determination.
If you believe a work protected by a U.S. copyright that you own has been posted on this Site without authorization, you may notify our designated agent for notices of claimed infringement at email@example.com. Your notification must include substantially the following: (1) 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, (2) identification of the works or materials being infringed or, if multiple works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of suck works, (3) 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 us to locate the material, (4) information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact you, (5) 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 (6) 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. You should consult with your lawyer and/or see 17 U.S.C. § 512 to confirm your obligations to provide a valid notice of claimed infringement.

APPLICABLE LAW MAY NOT ALLOW THE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY OR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN SUCH CASES, YOU AGREE THAT BECAUSE SUCH WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY REFLECT A REASONABLE AND FAIR ALLOCATION OF RISK BETWEEN YOU AND SARDIN, AND ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND SARDIN, SARDIN’S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT SARDIN WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO OFFER THE SERVICE TO YOU ON AN ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLE BASIS WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS.
