Good Samaritan Third-Party Content Policy and Complaint Procedures
1. Policy. We have provided opportunities for You to contribute content to Our site through various means, including, but not limited to, Your user profile, bulletin boards, and chats. It is Our policy, however, not to tolerate or allow any acts of intellectual property infringement, violations of U.S. law, obscene or defamatory material, or other unacceptable content to be posted at this site. We will attempt to remove, disable or restrict access to or the availability of content that, in Our sole discretion, is infringing, racist, obscene, obscene as to minors, lascivious, excessively violent, harassing, or otherwise objectionable or unacceptable. The provisions of this Section are intended to implement this policy but are not intended to impose a contractual obligation on Us to undertake, or refrain from undertaking, any particular course of conduct.
2. Complaint Procedures. If You believe that someone has posted content which violates this policy (other than in cases of copyright infringement, which is addressed in Section Ten(10)), promptly notify Us by e-mail at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org. You must use this address if you want to ensure that your complaint is actually received by the appropriate person charged with investigating alleged policy violations. In order to allow Us to respond effectively, please provide Us with as much detail as possible, including: (1) the nature of the right infringed or violated (including the registration numbers of any registered trademarks or patents allegedly infringed); (2) all facts which lead You to believe that a right has been violated or infringed; (3) the precise location where the offending content is located; (4) any grounds to believe that the person who posted the content was not authorized to do so or did not have a valid defense (including the defense of fair use); and (5) if known, the identity of the person or persons who posted the infringing or offending content.
3. Indemnification/Waiver of Certain Rights. By lodging a complaint, You agree that the substance of your complaint shall be deemed to constitute a representation made under penalty of perjury under the laws of the State of Pennsylvania. In addition, You agree, at Your own expense, to defend and indemnify Us and hold Us harmless against all claims which may be asserted against Us, and all losses incurred, as a result of Your complaint and/or Our response to it.
4. Waiver of Claims and Remedies. We expect all users of Our site to take responsibility for their own actions and cannot assume liability for any acts of third-parties which take place at this site. By taking advantage of the Good Samaritan procedures set forth in this Section, You waive any and all claims or remedies which You might otherwise be able to assert against Us under any theory of law (including, but not limited to, intellectual property laws) that arise out of or relate in any way to the content at this site or Our response, or failure to respond, to a complaint.
5. Investigation/Liability Limitation. You agree that We have the right, but not the obligation, to investigate any complaint received. By reserving this right, We do not undertake any responsibility in fact to investigate complaints or to remove, disable or restrict access to or the availability of content. We support free speech on the Internet and therefore will not act on complaints that we believe, in Our sole discretion, to be deficient. If You believe that content remains on this site that violates Your rights, YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY SHALL BE AGAINST THE PERSON(S) RESPONSIBLE FOR POSTING OR STORING IT, NOT AGAINST US.
