SiBi’s policy is to investigate any allegations of copyright infringement brought to its attention.
b. Take-Down Notice. If you have evidence, know, or have a good faith belief that your rights or the rights of a third party have been violated and you want SiBi to delete, edit, or disable the material in question, you must provide SiBi with all of the following information (as required by the Online Copyright Infringement Liability Limitation Act of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act) to our designated copyright agent set forth below:

- Identification of the copyrighted work (or works) claimed to have been infringed;
- Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing and information reasonably sufficient to permit SiBi to locate the material (providing URLs in the content of an email is the best way to help us locate content quickly);
- Information reasonably sufficient to permit SiBi to contact you, including your address, telephone number, and e-mail address at which you may be contacted;
- A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by you, or your agent, or the law;

Attn: Copyright Manager

2830 West 43rd Place
Los Angeles, CA, 90008
Mailing DMCA notices may delay the processing of your request. Only copyright complaints should be sent to the Designated Agent. No other communications will be accepted or responded to.
If you fail to comply with each requirement above, your DMCA notice may not be valid and may not be acknowledged. Once proper notice is received by the Designated Agent, it is SiBi’s policy to investigate the claim and notify the alleged infringer of your claim. If we determine that you have raised a legitimate copyright claim, we will remove or disable access to the infringing material and notify the content provider, member, or user that we have removed or disabled access to the material. In addition, repeat offenders will have the infringing material removed from the system and SiBi will terminate such content provider’s, member’s, or user’s access to the Service.
c. Counter-Notice. If you believe that the material that was removed or to which access has been disabled is either not infringing, or you believe that you have the right to post and use such material from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, you must send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Designated Agent:
- Your physical or electronic signature;
- Identification 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;
- 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;
- Your name, address, and telephone number; and
- A statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of federal district court in the judicial district in which your address is located, or if your address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which you may be found and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided the initial notification of alleged infringement.
If a counter-notice is received by the Designated Agent, SiBi may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed material 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 material may be replaced or access to it restored in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at SiBi’s discretion.

21. Governing Law
a. These Terms and any matter arising out of or relating to these Terms, and any claim, cause of action, controversy, or matter in dispute between you and us, whether sounding in contract, tort, statute, regulation, or otherwise, shall be governed by the internal laws of the State of California in the United States, consistent with the Federal Arbitration Act, without regard to any choice or conflict of laws principles (whether of the State of California or any other jurisdiction). You and SiBi agree that, except as otherwise provided below, the state and federal courts located in the County and City of Los Angeles, California will have exclusive jurisdiction of all disputes arising out of or related to these Terms or your use of the Service and agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction and venue of these courts. Notwithstanding the foregoing, SiBi shall be allowed to apply for equitable remedies (including injunctions) in any jurisdiction. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded from these Terms.
22. Disputes With Other Users
a. If you, as a Buyer, receive Listing Items that you believe is not in the condition it was advertised or otherwise does not operate as expected, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to reach a resolution. SiBi does not have any responsibility or liability for the operation or non-operation of any Listing Item.
b. In all cases, if you find yourself in a dispute with another user of the Service or a third party, we encourage you to contact the other party and try to resolve the dispute amicably. SiBi has no obligation to resolve any dispute between users or between a user and a third party. You release SiBi from any claims, demands, and damages arising out of disputes with other users or third parties.
23. Disputes With SiBi
a. Concerns. Most concerns can be resolved quickly by contacting us at the contact details in Section 26 (Contact Information) below.
b. Arbitration Procedures. In the event your concern cannot be resolved informally, you and SiBi agree that, except as provided in Section 23(e) below, all Disputes, (each a “Claim”), shall be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration, which may be initiated by either party by sending a written notice requesting arbitration to the other party. Any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other. The arbitration will be conducted under the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS that are in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated (the “JAMS Rules”) and under the terms set forth in these Terms. In the event of a conflict between the terms set forth in this Section 23 (Disputes With SiBi) and the JAMS Rules, the terms in this Section will control and prevail.
Except as otherwise set forth in Section 23(e) below, you may seek any remedies available to you under federal, state, or local laws in an arbitration action. As part of the arbitration, both you and SiBi will have the opportunity for discovery of non-privileged information that is relevant to the Claim. The arbitrator will provide a written statement of the arbitrator’s decision regarding the Claim, the award given, and the arbitrator’s findings and conclusions on which the arbitrator’s decision is based. The determination of whether a Claim is subject to arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and determined by a court rather than an arbitrator. Except as otherwise provided in these Terms, (i) you and SiBi may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or confirm, modify, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator; and (ii) the arbitrator’s decision shall be final, binding on all parties and enforceable in any court that has jurisdiction, provided that any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to follow applicable law.
IN THE CASE OF ARBITRATION AND WHERE PERMITTED BY LAW, YOU ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT TO ASSERT OR DEFEND YOUR RIGHTS. YOUR RIGHTS WILL BE DETERMINED BY A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR AND NOT A JUDGE OR JURY. YOU ARE ENTITLED TO A FAIR HEARING, BUT THE ARBITRATION PROCEDURES ARE SIMPLER AND MORE LIMITED THAN RULES APPLICABLE IN COURT. ARBITRATOR DECISIONS ARE ENFORCEABLE AS ANY COURT ORDER AND ARE SUBJECT TO VERY LIMITED REVIEW BY A COURT.
c. Location. The arbitration will take place in the County and City of Los Angeles, California unless the parties agree to video, phone, or internet connection appearances.
d. Limitations. You and SiBi agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Claim between SiBi and you individually. YOU AND SIBI AGREE THAT (i) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE ARBITRATED ON A CLASS-ACTION BASIS OR TO UTILIZE CLASS ACTION PROCEDURES; (ii) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE BROUGHT IN A PURPORTED REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY OR AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL; AND (iii) NO ARBITRATION SHALL BE JOINED WITH ANY OTHER ARBITRATION.
e. Exceptions to Arbitration. You and SiBi agree that the following Claims are not subject to the above provisions concerning binding arbitration: (i) any Excluded Dispute; (ii) any Claim related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy, or unauthorized use; and (iii) any claim for equitable relief. In addition to the foregoing, either party may assert an individual action in small claims court for Claims that are within the scope of such court’s jurisdiction in lieu of arbitration.
f. Arbitration Fees. If you initiate arbitration for a Claim, you will need to pay the JAMS arbitration initiation fee. If we initiate arbitration for a Claim, we will pay the costs charged by JAMS for initiating the arbitration. All other fees and costs of the arbitration will be charged pursuant to the JAMS Rules.
g. Severability. You and SiBi agree that if any portion of this Section is found illegal or unenforceable (except any portion of Section 23(e)), that portion shall be severed and the remainder of the Section shall be given full force and effect. If Section 23(e) is found to be illegal or unenforceable then neither you nor SiBi will elect to arbitrate any Claim falling within that portion of Section 23(e) found to be illegal or unenforceable and such Claim shall be exclusively decided by a court of competent jurisdiction within the County and City of Los Angeles, California, United States of America, and you and SiBi agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
24. Other Important Terms
a. Assignment. The rights granted to you under these Terms may not be assigned without SiBi’s prior written consent, and any attempted unauthorized assignment by you shall be null and void.
b. Severability. Except as otherwise provided in Section 23(g), if any part of these Terms is determined to be invalid or unenforceable, then that portion shall be severed, and the remainder of the Terms shall be given full force and effect.
c. Attorneys’ Fees. In the event any litigation or arbitration is brought by either party in connection with these Terms, except as otherwise provided in Section 23(f), the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover from the other party all the reasonable costs, attorneys’ fees and other expenses incurred by such prevailing party in any legal action relating to these Terms.
d. No Waiver. Our failure to enforce any provision of these Terms shall in no way be construed to be a waiver of such provision, nor in any way affect our right to enforce the same provision at a later time. An express waiver by SiBi of any provision, condition, or requirement of these Terms shall not be understood as a waiver of your obligation to comply with the same provision, condition, or requirement at a later time.
e. Equitable Remedies. You acknowledge and agree that SiBi would be irreparably damaged if the terms of these Terms were not specifically enforced, and therefore you agree that we shall be entitled, without bond, other security, or proof of damages, to appropriate equitable remedies with respect to any breach of these Terms, in addition to such other remedies as we may otherwise have available to us under applicable laws.
f. Entire Agreement. These Terms, including the documents referenced in these Terms, constitutes the entire agreement between you and SiBi with respect to the Service and supersedes any and all prior agreements between you and SiBi relating to the Service.
g. Transfer. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms to another organization, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms.
