Counter Notification

 

If we remove your Materials in response to a Notice of Claimed Infringement, we will notify you and offer to provide you with a copy of such notice. If you believe your Materials were wrongly removed due to a mistake or misidentification of the Materials, you may submit a timely Counter Notification to our Designated Agent that includes the following information:

 

  • Your physical or electronic signature;
  • Identification of the Materials that were removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the Materials appeared before they were removed or access to it was disabled;
  • A statement, made under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States, that you have a good faith belief that the Materials were removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the Materials to be removed or disabled; and
  • Your name, mailing address, telephone number and email address, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located, and that you will accept service of process from the party who submitted the Notice of Claimed Infringement or its duly appointed agent.

 

Upon receiving an effective Counter Notification, AVADO will promptly forward it to the reporting party. If the reporting party fails to notify AVADO within ten (10) business days that it has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain you from engaging in the allegedly infringing activity, AVADO will consider, in our sole discretion, restoring eligible Materials to the Site.

 

Our policy is to remove any Materials posted to the Site by any user for whom AVADO has received and acted on more than two takedown requests. AVADO has discretion, however, to terminate any user’s account and/or access to the Site or AVADO’s services after receipt of a single Notification of Claimed Infringement, or in AVADO’s in sole discretion.

This section describes the cookies policy for AVADO, and how we may use cookies to monitor usage patterns across AVADO website. You may wish to print this page.

 

What is in a cookie?

 

A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server. Only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers. It allows a website to remember things like your preferences or whether you are logged into a site to protect your privacy.

 

What to do if you do not want cookies to be set:

 

Some people find the idea of a website storing any information on their computer or mobile device intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without their knowledge. Although AVADO cookies are quite harmless, you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some cookies, all cookies, or even cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of the website.

 

Do-Not-Track Procedures

 

Note that any Do-Not-Track instructions from your browser or similar mechanism will not affect our collection of the data that users voluntarily provide to AVADO through such means as browsing the website, signing up for any of the services or any courses, entering PII into information fields on the websites or posting on any of our forums or blogs. Be advised that third parties are free to collect any information that you volunteer to AVADO that is visible to the public. Therefore, please do not provide AVADO with any information that you do not want collected.

 

Web browser cookies

 

If you do not want to receive cookies, you can modify your browser so that it notifies you when cookies are sent to it or you can refuse cookies altogether. You can also delete cookies that have already been set.
