  1. Indemnity. You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold LCI, its directors, officers, employees, agents, partners, suppliers, and licensors harmless and will keep them indemnified from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, relating to, arising from, or allegedly arising from (a) Your Content, your use of the App, and activities occurring under your Account; (b) any violation of these Terms; or (c) your violation of any other party’s rights or applicable law. LCI reserves the right to assume, at its sole expense, the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification by you, in which event you will fully cooperate with LCI in asserting any available defenses.

  1. DMCA Copyright Notice and Takedown Procedures.

    LCI respects the intellectual property rights of others. If you believe that any Content or other material available on the App infringes your copyright or the copyright of any third party, please send written notice in accordance with the provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) to our Designated Copyright Agent, who can be reached as follows:

    Please direct all copyright inquiries to legal@lionsclubs.org.

    To be effective, notice must include the following in compliance with Section 512(c) of the DMCA:

    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, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
    3. Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and specific information sufficient to permit us to locate the material;
    4. Information sufficient to permit us to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an email address;
    5. 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
    6. 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.

     
    This process only relates to reporting a claim of copyright infringement. Messages related to other matters will not receive a response through this process. Please note that under Section 512(f) of the DMCA, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material is infringing may be subject to liability. If you are unsure whether material on the App is infringing, you should contact an attorney prior to sending notice. After receiving notice, LCI may remove or disable access to infringing material.

 

  1. Modifications to these Terms. LCI reserves the right to change these Terms at any time upon notice to you. You agree to periodically review these Terms for changes and you can review the most current Terms at any time at http://members.lionsclubs.org/EN/terms-of-use.php. Your continued use of the App after the effective date indicates your acceptance of the updated Terms, even if you have not reviewed them. If, at any time, you do not agree to the Terms, you must cancel your Account and stop using the App.

 

  1. Governing Law. These Terms are governed by the laws of the State of Illinois, without reference to its conflict of laws provisions, and any dispute arising out of or relating to these Terms or your use of the App will be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal and state courts in the DuPage County, Illinois, other than for actions to enforce any order or judgment entered by such courts. YOU AGREE THAT ANY CAUSE OF ACTION ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THE SITE OR SERVICES MUST COMMENCE WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION ACCRUES; OTHERWISE, SUCH CAUSE OF ACTION IS PERMANENTLY BARRED.

 

  1. General. If any provision of these Terms is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect. You and LCI intend that the provisions of these Terms be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law. Accordingly, you and LCI agree that if any provision is deemed unenforceable, where possible, it will be modified to the extent necessary to make it enforceable, which may include its deletion. Section titles are only for convenience and have no legal or contractual significance. Any list of examples following “including” or “e.g.,” is illustrative and not exhaustive, unless qualified by terms like “only” or “solely”. LCI may assign these Terms, in whole or in part, at any time, with or without notice to you. You may not assign, transfer, or sublicense your rights, if any, in your Account, to the App, or under these Terms. If, at any time, LCI fails to respond to a breach of these Terms by you or others, that failure will not waive LCI’s right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. A waiver will only be binding on LCI if it is in writing and signed by LCI. These Terms (including Additional Terms and any incorporated terms or policies) constitute the entire agreement between you and LCI with respect to your Account and the App. Both you and LCI warrant to each other that, in entering these Terms, neither LCI nor you have relied on or will have any right or remedy based upon any statement, representation, warranty, or assurance other than those expressly stated in these Terms. The preceding sentence will not limit or exclude any liability that cannot be limited or excluded under applicable law. No one other than you and LCI, or LCI’s successors and permitted assigns, will have any right to enforce any of these Terms.
