  • a. IHRDC complies with laws applicable to it and its services.
  • b. IHRDC is entitled to rely upon (among other things) the DMCA safe harbor available to hosting service providers and search engines. Although it is IHRDC's policy to respond to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement, IHRDC recommends that you submit a notice pursuant to the DMCA directly to the customer who provided the content. IHRDC's response to these notices may include forwarding the notice to the applicable customer or removing or disabling access to material claimed to be the subject of infringing activity. IHRDC maintains policies and procedures to terminate subscribers that would be considered repeat infringers under the DMCA. See 17 U.S.C. 512 available at http://www.copyright.gov/
  • c. You may submit a DMCA notification to IHRDC's Designated Copyright Agent with the following information in writing (see 17 U.S.C. 512(c)(3) for additional information):
    • i. a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the allegedly infringed copyright;
    • ii. identification of the copyrighted work or works claimed to have been infringed;
    • iii. identification of, and information reasonably sufficient to permit IHRDC or the applicable customer to locate, the material that is claimed to be infringing or is the subject of infringing activity;
    • iv. information reasonably sufficient to permit the applicable customer or IHRDC to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address;
    • v. a statement that you have 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
    • vi. 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.
  • d. Unless it is reasonably apparent to IHRDC that the applicable customer has already received a notice of infringement from you regarding a particular content, IHRDC will forward all the information you provide in your notice, including your contact information, to the applicable customer. IHRDC's Designated Copyright Agent to receive notifications of claimed copyright infringement is our Head of Legal, International Human Resources Development Corporation, 535 Boylston Street, Boston, MA 02116, email: [email protected].
