- e) A statement that the complaining party has 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
- f) A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
- If you believe that your Third-Party Submission, which was removed (or to which access was disabled), is not infringing, or that you have authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent or authority under the law, to publish or use the Third-Party Submission, you may submit a written counter-notice, pursuant to the DMCA, to the address identified above. To be effective, the written counter-notice must include:
- a) Your physical or electronic signature;
- b) Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;
- c) A statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material; and
- d) Your name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located (or in Dallas, Texas, if your address is outside of the United States), and that you will accept service of process from the person, or the person’s agent, who provided notification of the alleged copyright infringement.
- e) If a counter-notice is received by BiG, BiG may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party (or agent thereof) informing that person that BiG may replace the removed Third-Party Submission or cease disabling it in ten business days. Unless the copyright owner (or agent thereof) files an action seeking a court order against the provider of the Third-Party Submission, the removed Third-Party Submission may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at BiG’s sole discretion.
- f) Please note that under Section 512(f) of the DMCA, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing, or that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or identification, will be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees, incurred by the alleged infringer, by any copyright owner or copyright owner’s authorized licensee, or by a service provider (such as or including BiG), who is injured by such misrepresentation, as the result of the service provider relying upon such misrepresentation in removing or disabling access to the material or activity claimed to be infringing, or in replacing the removed material or ceasing to disable access to it. Accordingly, if you are uncertain whether Third-Party Submission infringes your or others’ copyrights, please consult with a copyright attorney prior to making a notice under the DMCA.

- INDEMNITY; LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
12.1 Indemnity.

12.2 Limitation of Liability. For the avoidance of doubt, except as set forth in this Section 12.2, neither party shall be liable to the other party resulting from such other party’s infringement of Applicable Data Protection Laws. By way of example and not of limitation, in the event a Supervisory Authority or other regulator imposes any fines, penalties or other sanctions on or against a party (the “Infringing Party”), the non-infringing party shall not indemnify or otherwise hold the Infringing Party harmless and the Infringing Party shall not seek indemnification, contribution or other recovery from the non-infringing party in connection therewith.
