COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT.
LCTS has in place certain legally mandated procedures regarding allegations of copyright infringement occurring on the Site or with the Service. LCTS has adopted a policy that provides for the immediate suspension and/or termination of any Service user who is found to have infringed on the rights of LCTS or of a third party, or otherwise violated any intellectual property laws or regulations. LCTS's policy is to investigate any allegations of copyright infringement brought to its attention. If you have evidence, know, or have a good faith belief that your rights or the rights of a third party have been violated (e.g. copied, posted, stored, or transmitted) and you want LCTS to delete or edit the material in question, you must provide LCTS with all of the following information: (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works; (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringed or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed, and information reasonably sufficient to permit LCTS to locate the material; (d) information reasonably sufficient to permit LCTS to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and if available, an electronic mail address at which you may be contacted; (e) a statement 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; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. For this notification to be effective, you must provide it to LCTS's designated agent listed in the 'Contacting Us' section below.

MISCELLANEOUS.

Neither the course of conduct between you and us, nor trade practice, shall act to modify any provision of this Agreement. Our rights under this Agreement shall survive any termination of this Agreement.
