Copyright Complains. DMCA Notice and Takedown Procedure
Black Social has adopted the following policy toward copyright infringement on the Site in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (a copy of which is located at http://www.loc.gov/copyright/legislation/dmca.pdf, the “DMCA”).
If you believe the Site is hosting Content that infringes your copyright, please let us know by submitting a notice to our Copyright Agent (address below) in writing. Your notice must contain ALL of the following:
A description of the copyrighted work(s) you believe are infringed.
The exact location (URL) where the infringing material resides on the Site.
Contact information so that we can reach you, such as email address, your physical address and telephone number.
A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the use of the material identified in your notice in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.
A statement by you that the information in your notice is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that you are the copyright owner or are authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf.
Before you file an infringement notice, please carefully consider whether or not the use of copyrighted material at issue is protected by the “fair use” doctrine, as you could be liable for costs and attorneys’ fees should you file a takedown notice where there is no infringing use. Please also check to make sure you haven’t authorized the use at issue (for example, whether you have given a creative professional who prepared materials for your company the right to use those materials as examples of his or her past work). If you are unsure whether a use of your copyrighted material constitutes infringement, please contact an attorney. You may also wish to consult publicly available reference materials such as those found at the U.S. Copyright website (www.copyright.gov) or at the Chilling Effects website (www.chillingeffects.org).
Black Social will respond to valid DMCA requests within 10 days. In all cases, if you do not hear a response from us within 10 days of submitting a complaint, please e-mail us again at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm that we received your original complaint. As you may know, spam blockers sometimes reject important e-mails from unknown parties.
In an effort to be transparent in removing or restricting access to user-uploaded content, Black Social may make public any DMCA notice received (with personal contact information removed). This may include posting the notice to a public-facing website, among other methods.
After removing access to the material pursuant to a valid DMCA notice, Black Social will immediately notify the user responsible for the allegedly infringing material that it has removed or disabled access to the material.
Black Social reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to immediately terminate the account of any member who is the subject of repeated DMCA notifications.
If you believe access to your content was disabled or removed by Black Social as a result of an improper copyright infringement notice, please send our Copyright Agent (contact information below) a written counter‐notice that contains all of the following:
A description of the work improperly removed, along with your user name and the location where that work resided on the Service.
Contact information so that we can reach you, such as email address, your physical address and telephone number.
A statement under penalty of perjury, signed by you, that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification.
A statement that you consent to jurisdiction of the Federal District court for the district where you reside (or of San Francisco County, California if you reside outside of the United Sates) and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification under DMCA subsection (c)(1)(C) or an agent of such person.
Before you file a counter-notice, please carefully consider whether or not your use of the copyrighted material at issue is infringing, as you could be liable for costs and attorneys’ fees in the event that a court decides your counter-notice misrepresented that the material was removed by mistake. If you are unsure whether use of the material at issue constitutes infringement, please contact an attorney. In addition, you may wish to consult publicly available reference materials such as those found at the U.S. Copyright website (www.copyright.gov) or at the Chilling Effects website (www.chillingeffects.org).
Upon receipt of a valid counter-notification, Black Social will forward it to notifying party who submitted the original DMCA notification. The original notifying party (or the copyright holder he or she represents) will then have ten (10) days to notify us that he or she has filed legal action relating to the allegedly infringing material. If Black Social does not receive any such notification within ten (10) days, we may restore the material to the Services.
The email address for the Black Social Copyright Agent is:
Copyrights are important to us. If anything is wrong, please follow the indicated procedure.
If there is something you do not understand, send us an email to email@example.com

If applicable, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which states, in relevant part: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.”

When you pay to participate in the Class you will have the unlimited right to download the materials for the class. The materials will remain available for download in your online account indefinitely from the date of purchase.
As a student, when you enroll in a class, whether it’s a free or paid class, you are getting from Black Social a license to view the class via the Black Social platform and Services, and Black Social is the licensor of record. Classes are licensed, and not sold, to you. This license does not give you any right to resell the class in any manner (including by sharing account information with a purchaser or illegally downloading the class and sharing it on torrent sites).
In legal, more complete terms, Black Social grants you (as a student) a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to access and view the classes and associated content for which you have paid all required fees, solely for your personal, non- commercial, educational purposes through the Services, in accordance with these Terms and any conditions or restrictions associated with a particular classes or feature of our Services. All other uses are expressly prohibited. You may not reproduce, redistribute, transmit, assign, sell, broadcast, rent, share, lend, modify, adapt, edit, create derivative works of, sublicense, or otherwise transfer or use any class unless we give you explicit permission to do so in a written agreement signed by a Black Social authorized representative. This also applies to content you can access via any of our APIs.
We generally give a lifetime access license to our students when they enroll in a class. However, for liability reasons we consider that the legal access expires in a year and we reserve the right to revoke any license to access and the use of classes at any point in time in the event where we decide or are obligated to disable access to a class due to legal or policy reasons, for example, if the class you enrolled in is the object of a copyright complaint, or if we determine its content violates our terms. The access is not applicable to add-on features and services associated with a class, for example translation captions of classes may be disabled by instructors at any time, and an instructor may decide at any time to no longer provide teaching assistance or Q&A services in association with a class. To be clear, the access is to the class content but not to the instructor.

You understand that, if you teach a class, your students will have the opportunity to review their experience with you. We cannot control the contents of any such review and will not be held responsible for any information or opinions that a user may include in any such review.
You may choose to remove content from your class and will continue to own such content, but we will continue to have the right to use that content and to provide it to students who have paid for your class.

Assuming receipt by Black Social of payment from a student, fees for online classes will be sent to Braintree for processing on the first regularly scheduled “payment date” after the expiration of the refund period described above. Regularly scheduled “payment dates” are on the 16th of each month (or if any such day is not a business day, the next succeeding business day).
