5. CLAIMS OF COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT AND OTHER INTERLLECTUAL PROPERTY VIOLATIONS

You may not use BLUNTIQ Websites for any purpose or in any manner that infringes the rights of any third party. BLUNTIQ encourages you to report any content on the Website that you believe infringes your rights. Only the intellectual property rights owner or person authorized to act on behalf of the owner can report potentially infringing content. If you have a good faith belief that content on the Sites infringe your copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property rights, please follow the procedures set forth below.

In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”), BLUNTIQ has a designated agent for receiving notices of copyright infringement and BLUNTIQ follows the notice and take down procedures of the DMCA. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide BLUNTIQ’s copyright agent the following information required by the Online Copyright Infringement Liability Limitation Act of the DMCA, 17 U.S.C. 512: (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the copyright work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site; (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material; (d) information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact the complaining party; (e) a statement that the complaining party has a good-faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

If you believe that any content on the Website violate your rights other than copyrights, please provide BLUNTIQ with at least the following information: (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material; (c) an explanation of what rights you own/have and why you believe the content infringes your rights sufficient for us to evaluate your complaint; and (d) accurate contact information for you.

Notice of claims of copyright or other intellectual property infringement must be sent to BLUNTIQ’s Copyright Agent:

BLUNTIQ
Attn: Copyright Agent/Legal Department
5815 Franklin Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90028

or

info@bluntiq.com

Please note that this procedure is exclusively for notifying BLUNTIQ of claims that your copyrighted material or other intellectual property has been infringed.

It is often difficult to determine if your intellectual property rights have been violated or if the DMCA requirements have been met. We may request additional information before we remove any infringing material. If a dispute develops as to the correct owner of the rights in question, we reserve the right to remove your content along with that of the alleged infringer pending resolution of the matter.

BLUNTIQ will provide you with notice if your materials have been removed based on a third party complaint of alleged infringement of the third party’s intellectual property rights.

6. THIRD PARTY WEBSITES

As a convenience to you, BLUNTIQ Websites may produce automated search results and may provide links to third-party websites (“Outside Site(s)”).

The existence of, or links to, Outside Sites does not imply sponsorship or endorsement of the Outside Site, or its content, by BLUNTIQ.

BECAUSE SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION CONTAINED IN THIS PARAGRAPH, BLUNTIQ’S LIABILITY IN SUCH JURISDICTIONS MAY BE LIMITED TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.

BLUNTIQ makes no representation that the content on BLUNTIQ Websites is appropriate or available for use in locations outside the United States, and accessing BLUNTIQ Websites from jurisdictions outside the United States where such content is illegal is prohibited. You understand and agree that your access and use of BLUNTIQ Websites is at your own initiative and risk, and in compliance with, and pursuant to, the laws of the jurisdiction from where you initiate such access and/or the laws of the jurisdiction where you access, visit or use BLUNTIQ Websites.

14. MISCELLANEOUS

These Terms of Use do not create a partnership, joint venture, employment or agency relationship between you and BLUNTIQ, and you have no authority to bind BLUNTIQ in any way. BLUNTIQ shall have the right to assign these Terms of Use or any of BLUNTIQ’s rights hereunder in whole or in part to any third party. The failure of BLUNTIQ to act with respect to a breach of these Terms by you or others does not constitute a waiver and will not limit BLUNTIQ’s rights with respect to such breach or any subsequent breaches. No waiver by BLUNTIQ of any of these Terms will be of any force or effect unless made in writing and signed by a duly authorized officer of BLUNTIQ. Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor trade practice will act to modify these Terms. BLUNTIQ may assign its rights and duties under these Terms to any party at any time without any notice to you. These Terms may not be assigned by you without BLUNTIQ’s prior written consent. If any provision of these Terms will be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. You agree that these Terms will not be construed against BLUNTIQ by virtue of having drafted them.
