These Terms of Service constitute the entire agreement between you and Umba and govern your use and access of the Site, superseding any prior agreements between you and Umba with respect to the Site.

With respect to any disputes or claims arising out or resulting from these Terms of Service, you and Umba agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located within Delaware. The failure of Umba to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.

8. Umba Copyright Complaint Policy
Umba respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users to do the same. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, or that your intellectual property rights have been otherwise violated, you should send a written notice to Umba of your infringement claim in accordance with the procedure set forth below. Umba will process and investigate notices of alleged infringement and will take appropriate actions under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (“DMCA”) and other applicable intellectual property laws with respect to any alleged or actual infringement. Upon receipt of the notice, Umba will take whatever action, in its sole discretion, it deems appropriate, including removal of the challenged material form the Site. All notices should be sent to Umba by either email to: email@example.com or by mail to: Umba, PO Box 191285, St. Louis, MO 63119, Attn: Umba Copyright Notices
To be effective, your notice must be in writing and contain the following information:
the electronic or physical signature and full legal name of the person authorized to act on behalf of the copyright or other intellectual property interest owner;
a description of the copyrighted work or other intellectual property that you claim has been infringed;
a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Site or Service, with sufficient detail that we may find it on the Site or Service;
your address, telephone number, and email address;
a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use of the copyrighted material is not authorized by the copyright or intellectual property 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 or intellectual property owner or authorized to act on the copyright or intellectual property owner’s behalf.
COUNTER-NOTICE. Umba may give you notice that it has removed or disable access to certain material by means of a general notice on the Site, electronic mail to a user’s email address in Umba’s records, or by written communication sent by first-class mail to your physical address in Umba’s records. If you receive such a notice, you may provide a counter-notice in writing to Umba’s copyright agent at the address above, that includes the information set forth below. Again to be effective, the counter-notification must be a written communication that contains the following:
your physical or electronic signature and full legal name;
identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled;
a statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content; and
your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court located within District of Delaware and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.
If a counter-notice is received by Umba’s copyright agent, Umba will send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in 10 business days, unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or user, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at our sole discretion.
REPEAT INFRINGER POLICY: In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable law, Umba has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances and at Umba’s sole discretion, users who are deemed to be repeat infringers. Umba may also at its sole discretion limit access to the Site and/or terminate the memberships of any users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement.
Umba takes DCMA notices seriously. There are legal and financial consequences for fraudulent and/or bad faith submissions. Therefore before submitting a counter-notice, be sure that you are the actual holder of all rights of the removed content, or that you are submitting your counter-notice with a good-faith belief that the material was removed in error, and understand the repercussions of submitting a false claim.
