The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by H4YC infringe your copyright or trademark rights, you (or your agent) may send us a notice requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information: (a) identification of the work or material being infringed; (b) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing, including its location, with sufficient detail so that we are capable of finding it and verifying its existence; (c) contact information for the notifying party (the “Notifying Party”), including name, address, telephone number, and email address; (d) a statement that the Notifying Party has a good faith belief that the material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or law; (e) a statement made under penalty of perjury that the information provided in the notice is accurate and that the Notifying Party is authorized to make the complaint on behalf of the copyright owner.

The parties shall use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through good-faith negotiations, which shall be a precondition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration. Except for disputes relating to the H4YC’s intellectual property (such as trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights, and patents), all claims arising out of or relating to this Agreement and your use of the H4YC Services shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by JAMS in accordance with its provisions and procedures for consumer-related disputes, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. The arbitration shall be in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The arbitrator, and not any court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to this Agreement, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of this Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court; provided, however, that the arbitrator will not have authority to award damages, remedies, or awards that conflict with this Agreement. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. You and H4YC hereby expressly waive trial by jury. You also agree not to participate in claims brought in a private attorney general or representative capacity, or consolidated claims involving another person’s account, if H4YC is a party to the proceeding. This dispute resolution provision will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. The parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and that the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court. You agree that any claim you may have arising out of or related to your relationship with H4YC and these Terms must be filed within one year after such claim arose; otherwise, your claim is permanently barred.
The parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only, and not as a class action or other representative action. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class-action waiver set forth in this section is void or unenforceable for any reason, or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
Exception—Litigation of Small-Claims-Court Claims
Notwithstanding the parties’ decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court’s jurisdiction.

The Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and H4YC with respect to your use of the H4YC Services. The failure of H4YC to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Terms remain in full force and effect. H4YC’s notice to you via email, notices, posts, or links on the H4YC Services shall constitute acceptable notice to you under the Terms. We are not responsible for your failure to receive notice if email is quarantined by your email security system (e.g., “junk” or “spam” folder) or if you fail to update your email address. Notice will be considered received forty-eight hours after it is sent if transmitted via email or regular mail. In the event that notice is provided via links displayed in connection with the Services, then it will be considered received twenty-four hours after it is first displayed.

You acknowledge that Distributor and its affiliates and subsidiaries are third-party beneficiaries of these Terms, and that, upon your acceptance of these Terms, Distributor will have the right (and will be deemed to have accepted the right) to enforce these Terms against you as a third-party beneficiary.

You may provide us information about yourself, such as your name, address and e-mail address and other demographic information, if you register on our Site (including by “following,” “liking,” linking your account to our Site, etc., on a third party website or network) or use one of our Apps or our software to connect with our Site, or complete a survey or enter into a contest through our Site or Apps. Our Site and our Apps may collect information, including personal information such as physical location, and transfer information to our Site. Additionally, non-personal information, such as performance of an App, is collected through technology, which includes tracking information collected by us as well as third parties.
If you correspond with us by email, we may retain the content of your email messages, your email address and our responses. We may also retain any messages you send through our Site. You may also provide us information in user content you post to the Site.
We may offer you opportunities to engage in public activities on the Site and through Apps. “Public activities” are any actions you take on the Site or through Apps that are designed to be visible to other users, including comments, recommendations, reviews, ratings or any other items that you submit. Any information you disclose in your public activities, along with your screen name or ID, or any image or photo, becomes public and may be used by us for online and offline promotional or commercial uses in any and all media. If you choose to engage in public activities, you should be aware that any personal information you submit can be read, collected and used by other users of these areas. We are not responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in the course of your public activities and we have no responsibility to publish, take down, remove or edit any of your public activities or submissions.
Public activities may be included in our RSS feeds, APIs and other distribution formats. As a result, your public activities may appear on other websites, blogs, or feeds. Keep in mind that we are not responsible for any personal information you choose to make public via your public activities, and you agree that such sharing will be deemed to have been done by you, not us.
We may collect non-personal information about the computer, mobile device or other device you use to access the Site, such as IP address, geolocation information, unique device identifiers, browser type, browser language and other transactional information.

Our Site and our Apps use current location information if you choose to enable that feature. If you enable the location-based feature, your current location will be stored locally on your device, which will then be used by the Site or App and also stored on our servers. If you do not enable the location-based service, or if your device or browser does not have that feature, the Site and Apps will not transmit to us, and we will not collect or store, location information.

How We Share Your Information
We may store personal information in locations outside of our direct control of (for instance, on servers or databases co-located with hosting providers).
We share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
We may share your information with third parties who provide services to H4YC such as supporting and improving the Services, promoting the Services, processing payments, or fulfilling orders. These service providers will only have access to the information necessary to perform these limited functions on our behalf and are required to protect and secure your information. We may also engage service providers to collect information about your use of the Services over time on our behalf so that we or they may promote H4YC or display information that may be relevant to your interests on the Services or other websites or services.

Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose for posting to the Site, such as user content, becomes available to the public, as controlled by any applicable privacy or website customization settings. If you remove information that you posted to the Site, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages, or if other users have copied or saved that information.
How We Protect Information
We take several measures to safeguard the collection, transmission and storage of the data we collect. Although we strive to employ reasonable protections for your information that are appropriate to its sensitivity, we do not guarantee or warrant the security of the information you share with us and we are not responsible for the theft, destruction, loss or inadvertent disclosure of your information or content. No system is 100% secure. The Services uses industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to allow for the encryption of personal information and credit card numbers. The Services are registered with site identification authorities so that your browser can confirm H4YC’s identity before any personally identifiable information is sent. In addition, H4YC’s secure servers protect this information using advanced firewall technology.
To help ensure that these measures are effective in preventing unauthorized access to your private information, you should be aware of the security features available to you through your browser. You should use a security-enabled browser to submit your credit card information and other personal information at the Services. Please note that if you do not use a SSL-capable browser, you are at risk for having data intercepted.
To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you access to your account. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information, and for controlling access to your email communications from us, at all times.
While H4YC will always work hard to protect your personal information, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure. We care about the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or guarantee that your information on the service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. Transmitting personal information is done at your own risk. Your privacy settings may also be affected by changes to the functionality of third-party providers, such as social networks. We are not responsible for the functionality or security measures of any third party.
