14. Intellectual Property Notices

I. Procedure For Alleging Copyright Infringement

A. DMCA Notice. Ddrops Company will respond appropriately to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), as set forth below. If you own a copyright in a work (or represent such a copyright owner) and believe that your (or such owner’s) copyright in that work has been infringed by an improper posting or distribution of it via the website, then you may send us a written notice that includes all of the following:

  • (i) a legend or subject line that says: “DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice”;
  • (ii) a description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed or, if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works;
  • (iii) a description of where the material that you claim is infringing or is the subject of infringing activity is located that is reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material (please include the URL or page of the website on which the material appears);
  • (iv) your full name, address, telephone number and email address;
  • (v) a statement by you that you have 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;
  • (vi) a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that all the information in your notice is accurate, and that you are the copyright owner (or, if you are not the copyright owner, then your statement must indicate that you are authorized to act on the behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed); and
  • (vii) your electronic or physical signature.

Ddrops Company will only respond to DMCA Notices that it receives by mail, email or facsimile at the addresses below:

  • By Mail: Ddrops Company, 126 Trowers Rd., Woodbridge, Ontario L4L 5Z4 (Attn: DMCA Agent)
  • By Fax: 1-866-761-9333
  • By Email: privacy@vitaminddrops.com

It is often difficult to determine if your copyright has been infringed. Ddrops Company may elect to not respond to DMCA Notices that do not substantially comply with all of the foregoing requirements, and Ddrops Company may elect to remove allegedly infringing material that comes to its attention via notices that do not substantially comply with the DMCA.

Please note that the DMCA provides that any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability.

We may send the information that you provide in your notice to the person who provided the allegedly infringing work. That person may elect to send us a DMCA Counter-Notification. Without limiting Ddrops Company’s other rights, Ddrops Company may, in appropriate circumstances, terminate a repeat infringer’s access to the website and any other website owned or operated by Ddrops Company.

B. Counter-Notification. If access on the website to a work that you submitted to Ddrops Company is disabled or the work is removed as a result of a DMCA Notice, and if you believe that the disabled access or removal is the result of mistake or misidentification, then you may send us a DMCA Counter-Notification to the addresses above. Your DMCA Counter-Notification should contain the following information:

  • (i) a legend or subject line that says: “DMCA Counter-Notification”;
  • (ii) a description 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 (please include the URL or page of the website from which the material was removed or access to it disabled);
  • (iii) 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;
  • (iv) your full name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and the username of your account;
  • (v) a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located (or, if the address is located outside the U.S.A., to the jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the Central District of California), and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided DMCA notification to us or an agent of such person; and
  • (vi) your electronic or physical signature.

Please note that the DMCA provides that any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability.

If we receive a DMCA Counter-Notification, then we may replace the material that we removed (or stop disabling access to it) in not less than ten (10) and not more than fourteen (14) business days following receipt of the DMCA Counter-Notification. However, we will not do this if we first receive notice at the addresses above that the party who sent us the DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice has filed a lawsuit asking a court for an order restraining the person who provided the material from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on the website. You should also be aware that we may forward the Counter-Notification to the party who sent us the DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice.

II. Procedure For Alleging Infringement of Other Intellectual Property

If you own intellectual property other than copyrights and believe that your intellectual property has been infringed by an improper posting or distribution of it via the website, then you may send us a written notice to the addresses set forth above that includes all of the following:

  • (a) a legend or subject line that says: “Intellectual Property Infringement Notice”;
  • (b) a description of the intellectual property that you claim has been infringed;
  • (c) a description of where the material that you claim is infringing or is the subject of infringing activity is located that is reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material (please include the URL or page of the website on which the material appears);
  • (d) your full name, address, telephone number and email address;
  • (e) a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the owner of the intellectual property, its agent, or the law;
  • (f) a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that all the information in your notice is accurate, and that you are the owner of the intellectual property at issue (or, if you are not the owner, then your statement must indicate that you are authorized to act on the behalf of the owner of the intellectual property that is allegedly infringed); and

15. Applicable Laws

15.A. If you reside in the United Kingdom, please note that these Terms of Use, their subject matter and their formation, are governed by English Law. You and we agree that the courts of England and Wales will have exclusive jurisdiction, except that if you are a resident of Northern Ireland you may also bring proceedings in Northern Ireland and if you are resident of Scotland, you may also bring proceedings in Scotland.

If you reside in Canada, all matters relating to your access and use of this website shall be governed by the laws of the Canada and if you reside in the United States all matters relating to your access and use of this website shall be governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflicts of law provisions. Unless otherwise prohibited by law, for users who reside in Canada (other than residents of the province of Quebec), any action relating to your use and access of this website shall be brought exclusively in the federal and provincial courts located in Ontario, Canada and you expressly agree to be subject to the jurisdiction and venue of such courts.

15.B. For users who reside in the United States only, the following arbitration provisions apply to all dispute resolution. For clarity, this Section 15.B. applies only to residents of the United States, and does not apply to residents of Canada or the United Kingdom.

Certain portions of this Section 15 are deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and Ddrops Company agree that we intend that this Section 15 satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act.

A. First – Try to Resolve Disputes and Excluded Disputes. If any controversy, allegation, or claim arises out of or relates to the website, your User Content, these Terms of Use, or any Additional Terms, whether heretofore or hereafter arising (collectively, “Dispute”), or to any of Ddrops Company’s actual or alleged intellectual property rights (an “Excluded Dispute”, which includes those actions set forth in Section 15(D), then you and we agree to send a written notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the Dispute or Excluded Dispute, along with a proposed resolution of it. Our notice to you will be sent to you based on the most recent contact information that you provide us. But if no such information exists or if such information is not current, then we have no obligation under this Section 15(A). Your notice to us must be sent via email to privacy@vitaminddrops.com Ddrops Company Legal Email Address] or mail to: Ddrops Company, 126 Trowers Rd., Woodbridge, Ontario L4L 5Z4 (Attn: Legal Dept.). For a period of sixty (60) days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, Ddrops Company and you will engage in a dialogue in order to attempt to resolve the Dispute or Excluded Dispute, though nothing will require either you or Ddrops Company to resolve the Dispute or Excluded Dispute on terms with respect to which you and Ddrops Company, in each of our sole discretion, are not comfortable.

B. Binding Arbitration. If we cannot resolve a Dispute as set forth in Section 15(A) (or agree to arbitration in writing with respect to an Excluded Dispute) within sixty (60) days of receipt of the notice, then ANY AND ALL DISPUTES ARISING BETWEEN YOU AND DDROPS COMPANY (WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, STATUTE, REGULATION, ORDINANCE, TORT— INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, FRAUD, ANY OTHER INTENTIONAL TORT OR NEGLIGENCE,—COMMON LAW, CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISION, RESPONDEAT SUPERIOR, AGENCY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY), WHETHER ARISING BEFORE OR AFTER THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF THESE TERMS, MUST BE RESOLVED BY FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION. THIS INCLUDES ANY AND ALL DISPUTES BASED ON ANY PRODUCT OR SERVICE PURCHASED THROUGH THE WEBSITE OR ADVERTISING AVAILABLE ON OR THROUGH THE WEBSITE. For U.S. residents, the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), not state law, shall govern the arbitrability of all disputes between Ddrops Company and you regarding these Terms (and any Additional Terms) and the website, including the “No Class Action Matters” Section below. BY AGREEING TO ARBITRATE, EACH PARTY IS GIVING UP ITS RIGHT TO GO TO COURT AND HAVE ANY DISPUTE HEARD BY A JUDGE OR JURY. Ddrops Company and you agree, however, that the applicable state, federal or provincial law, as contemplated above shall apply to and govern, as appropriate, any and all claims or causes of action, remedies, and damages arising between you and Ddrops Company regarding these Terms and the website, whether arising or stated in contract, statute, common law, or any other legal theory, without regard to any jurisdiction’s choice of law principles.

Any Dispute will be resolved solely by binding arbitration in accordance with the then-current Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), except as modified herein, and the arbitration will be administered by the AAA. If a party properly submits the Dispute to the AAA for formal arbitration and the AAA is unwilling to set a hearing then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services Inc. (“JAMS”) using JAMS’ streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures, or by any other arbitration administration service that you and an officer or legal representative of Ddrops Company consent to in writing. If an in-person arbitration hearing is required and you are a U.S. resident, then it will be conducted Austin, Texas. You and we will pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees and other costs in accordance with the applicable arbitration rules; but if applicable arbitration rules or laws require Ddrops Company to pay a greater portion or all of such fees and costs in order for this Section 15 to be enforceable, then Ddrops Company will have the right to elect to pay the fees and costs and proceed to arbitration. The arbitration will be conducted by a single arbitrator who will apply and be bound by these Terms and any Additional Terms, and will determine any Dispute according to applicable law and facts based upon the record and no other basis, and will issue a reasoned award only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope and enforceability of the arbitration and class action waiver provisions are for the court to decide. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms or the website. You can obtain AAA and JAMS procedures, rules, and fee information as follows: AAA: 800.778.7879 and https://www.adr.org and JAMS: 800.352.5267 and https://www.jamsadr.com.

C. Limited Time to File Claims. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IF YOU OR WE WANT TO ASSERT A DISPUTE (BUT NOT A EXCLUDED DISPUTE) AGAINST THE OTHER, THEN YOU OR WE MUST COMMENCE IT (BY DELIVERY OF WRITTEN NOTICE AS SET FORTH IN SECTION 15(A)) WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE DISPUTE ARISES — OR IT WILL BE FOREVER BARRED. Commencing means, as applicable: (a) by delivery of written notice as set forth above in Section 15(A); (b) filing for arbitration as set forth in Section 15(B); or (c) filing an action in state or Federal court.

D. Injunctive Relief. The foregoing provisions of this Section 15 will not apply to any legal action taken by Ddrops Company to seek an injunction or other equitable relief in connection with, any loss, cost, or damage (or any potential loss, cost, or damage) relating to the website, any content, your User Content and/or Ddrops Company’ intellectual property rights (including such Ddrops Company may claim that may be in dispute), Ddrops Company’ operations, and/or Ddrops Company’ products or services.

E. No Class Action Matters. YOU AND DDROPS COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OR AS AN ASSOCIATION. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be joined or consolidated with any other arbitrations or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party. There shall be no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class action basis or on any basis involving Disputes brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public, or other persons or entities similarly situated. But if, for any reason, any court with competent jurisdiction holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then our agreement in Section 15(B) to arbitrate will not apply and the Dispute must be brought exclusively in court pursuant to Section 15(F). Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 15, any and all issues relating to the scope, interpretation and enforceability of the class action waiver provisions contained herein (described in this “No Class Action Matters” Section), are to be decided only by a court of competent jurisdiction, and not by the arbitrator. The arbitrator does not have the power to vary these class action waiver provisions.

F. Jurisdictional Issues. Except where arbitration is required above or with respect to the enforcement of any arbitration decision or award, any action or proceeding relating to any Dispute or Excluded Dispute arising hereunder may only be instituted in state or Federal court in Los Angeles California, California. Accordingly, you and Ddrops Company consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts for such matters.

G. Small Claims Matters Are Excluded from Arbitration Requirement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either of us may bring qualifying claim of Disputes (but not Excluded Disputes) in small claims court of competent jurisdiction.
