You may not store any material or content on, access, share or disseminate any material or content over, the service in any manner that infringes third party intellectual property rights, including rights granted by U.S. copyright law. CMS complies with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”). You may receive DMCA notifications from CMS if Your service account is identified by a copyright owner or authorized agent as having been used in connection with acts of alleged copyright infringement.

Owners of copyrighted works who believe that their rights under U.S. copyright law have been infringed, may report alleged infringements to CMS per the provisions set forth in the DMCA. It is CMS’s policy in accordance with the DMCA to reserve the right to suspend or terminate the service(s) provided to any Customer or User who is found to infringe third party copyright or other intellectual property rights, including repeat infringers, or who CMS, at its sole discretion, believes is infringing these rights. CMS may suspend or terminate the service(s) at any time with or without notice for any affected Customer or User.

Reporting of alleged infringements

Copyright owners may report alleged infringements of their works that are stored on the service by sending the CMS authorized agent as listed below, a notification of claimed infringement that satisfies the requirements of Section 512(c)(3) of the U.S. Copyright Act. Upon CMS’s receipt of a satisfactory notice of claimed infringement, CMS will expeditiously remove, or disable access to the infringing material when the material is stored on a hosted service managed by CMS. CMS will also by best effort notify the affected Customer or User by electronic or conventional mail by forwarding the notice to them. Repeat infringers are subject to service termination as set forth above.
