10. Copyright Complaints

 

We respect the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users to do the same. We may, in appropriate circumstances and in our sole discretion, terminate the rights of any user to use our Platform (or any part thereof) who infringes the intellectual property rights of others.

 

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement or are aware of someone doing so, please contact our designated agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement and include the following information:

 

  • a physical or electronic signature of the owner of the copyright or a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner;

  • identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on this application are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works);

  • identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow us to locate the material on our Platform;

  • your name, mailing address, telephone number and email address;

  • a statement by you 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

  • a statement by you that the information in your notification is accurate, and that you attest under penalty of perjury, that you are the copyright owner or that you are authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf.

 

Upon receipt of any notice, we will take whatever action, in our sole discretion, we deem appropriate, including the removal of the challenged content from the Platform.

 

If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send us a counter-notice. Counter-notices with respect to the Platform should be sent to our designated agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement.

 

Contact information for our designated copyright agent is support@finhabits.com (please include “Notice of Copyright Infringement” in the subject line).
