Ingengo welcomes your comments regarding Ingengo’s products, including Ingengo’s online services. Please note, however, that Ingengo’s company policy does not allow it to accept or consider creative ideas, suggestions or materials other than those it has specifically requested. Ingengo hopes you will understand that it is the intent of this policy to avoid the possibility of future misunderstandings when projects developed by Ingengo’s professional staff might seem to others to be similar to their own creative work. Accordingly, Ingengo must ask that you to not send Ingengo unsolicited original creative materials such as stories, character ideas or original artwork. While Ingengo does value your feedback on Ingengo’s services and products, Ingengo requests that you be specific in your comments on those services and products and not submit creative ideas, suggestions or materials.
If you send creative ideas, suggestions or materials to Ingengo that Ingengo has not specifically requested (collectively, “Submissions”), you grant to Ingengo and its designees a worldwide, non-exclusive, sub-licensable (through multiple tiers), assignable, fully paid-up, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable right to use, reproduce, distribute (through multiple tiers), create derivative works of, publicly perform, publicly display, digitally perform, make, have made, sell, offer for sale and import such Submissions in any media now known or hereafter developed, for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, without compensation to the provider of the Submissions. None of the Submissions shall be subject to any obligation, whether of confidentiality, attribution or otherwise, on Ingengo’s part. All Submissions will be deemed non-confidential and Ingengo is not liable for any use or disclosure of Submissions. Any unsolicited hard-copy Submissions sent to Ingengo will not be acknowledged or returned and shall be deemed, and shall remain, the property of Ingengo.
As a User, you may post or submit content to the Site (“User Content”). User Content does not include Submissions. You understand that whether or not such User Content is published, Ingengo does not guarantee any confidentiality with respect to any User Content.
You shall be solely responsible for your own User Content and the consequences of posting or publishing it. In connection with User Content, you affirm, represent and/or warrant that you own or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents and permissions to use and authorize Ingengo to use all patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights in and to any and all of your User Content to enable use of the User Content in the manner contemplated by the Site and this Agreement.

You understand and agree, however, that Ingengo may retain, but not display, distribute or perform, server copies of User Content that have been removed or deleted. You further agree that you will not submit material that is: (a) copyrighted, protected by trade secret or otherwise subject to third party proprietary rights, including without limitation privacy and publicity rights, unless you are the owner of such rights or have permission from their rightful owner(s) to post the material and to grant Ingengo all of the license rights granted herein; and/or (b) contrary to applicable local, national, and international laws and regulations.

CHILD ONLINE PROTECTION ACT NOTIFICATION
CLAIMS OF COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof and believe in good faith that materials hosted by Ingengo infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send Ingengo a notice requesting that the material be removed or access to it blocked by providing Ingengo’s Copyright Agent with the following information in writing (see 17 U.S.C 512(c)(3) for further detail):
- A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
- Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online Web site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that Web site;
- 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 information reasonably sufficient to permit the Ingengo to locate the material;
- Information reasonably sufficient to permit the Ingengo to contact you, such as a name, address, telephone number, and, if available, an e-mail address;
- 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
- 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.
If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send Ingengo a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright for details. Notices and counter-notices with respect to this website should be sent to Ingengo’s Copyright Agent:
PO Box 771
Wurtsboro, NY 12790
By e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Ingengo suggests that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice. Also, be aware that there can be penalties for false claims under the DMCA.
For clarity, only DMCA notices and counter-notices should go to the Copyright Agent; any other feedback, comments, requests for technical support, and other communications should be directed to Ingengo online customer. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this Section, your DMCA notice may not be valid.
