Amendment. No modification of or amendment to the Website Terms nor any waiver of any rights, will be effective unless in writing. No oral statement to either party may alter the Website Terms.

Severability. If any provision(s) of the Website Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions will continue to be valid and enforceable.

Cumulative Remedies. All rights and remedies provided in the Website Terms are cumulative and not exclusive, and the exercise by either you or the Non-Profit of any right or remedy does not preclude the exercise of any other rights or remedies that may now or subsequently be available at law, in equity, by statute, in any other agreement, or otherwise.

The Website Terms benefit solely you and the Non-Profit and their respective permitted successors and assigns and nothing in the Website Terms, express or implied, confers on any other person any legal or equitable right, benefit, or remedy of any nature whatsoever under or by reason of the Website Terms.

No Waiver of Contractual Right. The failure of the Non-Profit to enforce any provision of the Website Terms will not be construed as a waiver or limitation of the Non-Profit’s right subsequently to enforce and compel strict compliance with every provision of the Website Terms.

Governing Law. You agree that the Website Terms are governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the state of Utah.

Consent to Personal Jurisdiction. You expressly consent to the personal jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Utah for any lawsuit filed arising from or relating to the Website Terms.

  1. Procedure for Reporting Copyright Infringements. If you believe that material residing on or accessible through the Sites infringes your copyright, you may provide us with a written notice of the alleged infringement to the Designated Agent listed below. The notice must include the following information:
    1. A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
    2. Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed;
    3. Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material;
    4. Information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted;
    5. A statement that the complaining party has 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; and
    6. A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
  2. Removal of Allegedly Infringing Material. Once a proper infringement notice is received by the Designated Agent, we may remove or disable access to the allegedly infringing material. We will make reasonable attempts to notify the user that we have removed or disabled access to the material. We may terminate access to the Sites to users who are repeat offenders.
  3. Counter-Notice Procedure. If a user believes that their material that was removed or to which access was disabled is not infringing upon a copyright, that user must send a counter-notice to the Designated Agent, pursuant to 512(g)(2) and (3) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. The counter-notice must contain the following information:
    1. A physical or electronic signature of the user;
    2. The location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;
    3. A statement under penalty of perjury that the user has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled because of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled; and
    4. The user’s name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that the user consents to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the address is located, or if the user’s address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which RMA may be found, and that the user will accept service of process from the person who provided notification or an agent of such person.
    5. If a counter-notice is received by the Designated Agent, we may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that we may replace the removed material or cease disabling it in 10 business days.
    6. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the user, the removed material may be replaced or access to it restored after receipt of the counter-notice in accordance with the DMCA.
