It is our policy in accordance with the DMCA and other applicable laws to reserve the right to terminate access to this website for any user who is either found to infringe third party copyright or other intellectual property rights, including repeat infringers, or who we, in our sole discretion, believe is infringing these rights.

If the affected user believes in good faith that the allegedly infringing works have been removed or blocked by mistake or misidentification, then that person may send a counter notification to us. Upon our receipt of a counter notification that satisfies the requirements of DMCA, we will provide a copy of the counter notification to the person who sent the original notification of claimed infringement and will follow the DMCA's procedures with respect to a received counter notification.
