If you have questions about any product or service you learn about on our Site, please go to the source – namely, the vendor or manufacturer – for additional information.

Notice for Claims of Intellectual Property Violations and Agent for Notice

If you believe in good faith that any material on our Site infringes your copyright, you (or your agent) may send us a notice requesting that we remove or block access to the infringing material. Your notice to us must include the following information:

1.   an electronic or physical signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;

2.   identification of the copyrighted work or other intellectual property that you claim has been infringed upon;

3.   a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Site, with sufficient detail that we may find it on the Site;

7.   a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice 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.

If you believe in good faith that someone has wrongfully filed a notice of copyright infringement against you, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the “DMCA”) permits you to send us a counter-notice.
