Notice and Procedure for Making Claims of Copyright Infringement In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (“DMCA”)

Ivalua will respond to allegations of copyright violations in accordance with the DMCA. The DMCA provides a process for a copyright owner to give notification to an online service provider concerning alleged copyright infringement. When a valid DMCA notification is received, the service provider responds under this process by taking down the offending content. On taking down content under the DMCA, we will take reasonable steps to contact the owner of the removed content so that a counter-notification may be filed. On receiving a valid counter-notification, we generally restore the content in question, unless we receive notice from the notification provider that a legal action has been filed seeking a court order to restrain the alleged infringer from engaging in the infringing activity. Ivalua may provide copies of such notices to the participants in the dispute or to any other third parties, at our discretion and as required by law. Ivalua’s privacy policy does not protect information provided in these notices.

  2. A description of the material that you claim is infringing the copyrighted work listed in item #1.
  3. An address, telephone number, and an email address where the alleged infringing party can contact you.
