Vendisys respects the intellectual property rights of others. If you believe your work has been copied or used in a way that infringes upon any intellectual property right (including trademark rights and rights to publicity and privacy), please contact our designated copyright agent at the address listed below with the following information:
- An electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright or other intellectual property right interest;
- Identification of the copyrighted work(s) that you claim to have been infringed;
- A description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the site;
- Your address, telephone number and email address;
- A written statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law;
- A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf.
The designated copyright agent for Vendisys is:
Attn: DMCA Compliance Officer
60 Thoreau Street
Concord, MA 01742
If you submit a DMCA Notice and/or an IP Rights Notice hereunder, you shall be deemed a “Complaining Party” for purposes of this agreement. Please note that, due to security concerns, attachments cannot be accepted. Accordingly, any notification of infringement submitted electronically with an attachment will not be received or processed. Moreover, this procedure is exclusively for notifying Vendisys that your intellectual property rights have been infringed.
Any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability.
Upon receipt of a written DMCA Notice containing the information outlined above, Vendisys may:
- Remove or disable access to the material that is alleged to be infringing;
- Forward the written DMCA Notice to such alleged infringer (“Alleged Infringer”);
- Take reasonable steps to promptly notify the Alleged Infringer that it has removed or access to the material has been disabled.
Pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 512 et. al, in response to a DMCA Notice, an Alleged Infringer may provide Vendisys’ designated copyright agent with a counter notice objecting to the Complaining Party’s allegations and Vendisys’ removal of the alleged infringing material (a “Counter Notice”). To be effective, a Counter Notice must be a written communication provided to Vendisys’ designated copyright agent that includes substantially the following:
- A physical or electronic signature of the Alleged Infringer;
- 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;
- A statement under penalty of perjury that the Alleged Infringer has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled;
- The Alleged Infringer’s name, address and telephone number, and a statement that the Alleged Infringer consents to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which its physical address is located, or if the Alleged Infringer’s address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which Vendisys may be found, and that the Alleged Infringer will accept service of process from the person who provided the DMCA Notice and/or IP Rights Notice, or an agent of such person.
Upon receipt of a Counter Notice containing the information as outlined in 1 through 4 above, Vendisys may:
- Promptly provide the Complaining Party with a copy of the Counter Notice;
- Inform the Complaining Party that it will replace the removed material or cease disabling access to it within ten (10) business days;
- Replace the removed material or cease disabling access to the material within ten (10) to fourteen (14) business days following receipt of the Counter Notice, provided Vendisys’ Designated Agent has not received notice from the Complaining Party that an action has been filed seeking a court order to restrain Alleged Infringer from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on Vendisys’ network or system.
