In order to have full access to any and all content found on the Website, the Company offers users the ability to become a “Full Member” by paying a monthly subscription fee of $9.99 (“Subscription Fee”).

Put simply, as a Free Member with a free 3-day trial, you have access to the same Services that a Full Member has for a limited 3-day period. Such trials may require you to register with a valid credit card to commence. Users that sign up for a free trial membership will be automatically renewed at $9.99 at the end of the trial period unless the user cancels the membership at least before the end of the trial. You can cancel a free trial online or by contacting the Company’s customer support. After cancellation of a free trial, you can continue as a Visitor with reduced benefits or access.

Counter-Notice. If you believe your content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the material in your content, you must submit a counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent listed above: (i) your physical or electronic signature; (ii) your name, address and phone number; (iii) 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; (iv) 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 to be removed or disabled; (v) your consent to the jurisdiction of a federal court in the district where you live (if you are in the U.S.) or your consent to the jurisdiction of a federal court in the district where your service provider is located (if you are not in the U.S.); and (vi) your consent to accept service of process from the person who provided the notification under 17 U.S.C. § 512(c)(1)(C) or an agent of such person.
