  1. Copyright Infringement and DMCA Policy.

If you believe that material located on or linked to by GaggleAMP.com violates your copyright, you are encouraged to notify GaggleAMP in accordance with GaggleAMP's Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") Policy (see below). GaggleAMP will respond to all such notices, including as required or appropriate by removing the infringing material or disabling all links to the infringing material that are contained on the Website. GaggleAMP may terminate a visitor's access to and use of the Website at GaggleAMP's discretion if GaggleAMP determines that the visitor or user is or may be infringing on the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of GaggleAMP or others. In the case of such termination, GaggleAMP will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid to GaggleAMP.

DMCA/IP Notification Policy. To notify GaggleAMP of infringing or unlawful content, please provide GaggleAMP with the following information:

  • Your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address;

  • A description of the exact location on the Website of the infringing or unlawful content;

  • A description of the claimed infringing or unlawful content, specifying which parts you belief infringe or are unlawful, and which parts you believe should be removed;

We reserve the right in our sole discretion to restore such content if the source of such content provides evidence that the content should not have been removed. We encourage you to see the advice of an independent attorney before filing an intellectual property notice or responding to a notice filed by another user.

GaggleAMP may be notified of claims of intellectual property infringement by emailing the above requested information to dmca@gaggleamp.com.

  1. Infringement and Third Party Content.

Because GaggleAMP allows content to be posted from third parties and third party websites, there is a chance that the ability to remove any allegedly infringing content will be out of our control. While we will make a good faith effort to remove the allegedly infringing content, we strongly suggest that if you believe your copyright has been infringed by a GaggleAMP user posting content from a third party website, we strongly suggest you contact the third party or third party site directly and request the allegedly infringing material be taken down.

  1. Intellectual Property. This Agreement does not transfer, assign, or license from GaggleAMP to you any GaggleAMP or third party intellectual property, and all right, title, and interest in and to such property will remain (as between the parties) solely with GaggleAMP. GaggleAMP, the GaggleAMPlogo, and all other trademarks, service marks, graphics and logos used in connection with GaggleAMP, or the Website are trademarks or registered trademarks of GaggleAMP or GaggleAMP's licensors.
