5. Procedure For Alleging Copyright Infringement
A. Copyright Infringement Under 17 USC § 512. It is our policy to respond appropriately to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement. ATLAS may remove content that may be infringing on another person’s intellectual property rights with or without notice to the potential infringer, and in accordance with the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) and other applicable law.
If we remove or disable access in response to a DMCA Notice, we will make a good faith attempt to contact the owner or administrator of the affected App or content so that they may make a counter-notification. If you own a copyright in a work (or represent such a copyright owner) and believe that your (or such owner’s) copyright in that work has been infringed by an improper posting or distribution of it via the App, then you may send us a written notice that includes ALL of the following:
(i) a legend or subject line that says: “DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice”;
(ii) a description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed or, if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works;
(iii) a description of where the material that you claim is infringing or is the subject of infringing activity is located that is reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material (please include the URL of the App on which the material appears);
(iv) your full name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address;
(v) a statement by you 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;
(vi) a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that all the information in your notice is accurate, and that you are the copyright owner (or, if you are not the copyright owner, then your statement must indicate that you are authorized to act on the behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed); and
(vii) your electronic or physical signature.
ATLAS will only respond to DMCA Notices that it receives by mail, e-mail, or facsimile at the addresses below:
By Mail: 16192 Coastal Highway Lewes, DE 19958
By E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
ATLAS may elect to not respond to DMCA Notices that do not substantially comply with all of the foregoing requirements, and ATLAS may elect to remove allegedly infringing material that comes to its attention via notices that do not substantially comply with the DMCA.
B. DMCA Counter-Notification. If access on the App to a work that you submitted to ATLAS is disabled or the work is removed as a result of a DMCA Notice, and if you believe that the disabled access or removal is the result of mistake or misidentification, then you may send us a DMCA Counter-Notification to the addresses above. Your DMCA Counter-Notification should contain the following information:
(i) a legend or subject line that says: “DMCA Counter-Notification”;
(ii) a description of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled (please include the URL of the App from which the material was removed or access to it disabled);
(iii) a statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled;
(iv) your full name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and the username of your account;
(v) a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located (or, if the address is located outside the U.S.A., to the jurisdiction of the United States District Court for Delaware), and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided DMCA notification to us or an agent of such person; and
(vi) your electronic or physical signature.
Please note that the DMCA provides that any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability.
If we receive a DMCA Counter-Notification, then we may replace the material that we removed (or stop disabling access to it) unless we receive notice that the party who sent the DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice has filed a lawsuit based on infringing activity.
C. Infringement of Other Intellectual Property. If you own intellectual property other than copyrights and believe that your intellectual property has been infringed by an improper posting or distribution of it via the App, then you may send us a written notice to the address set forth above that includes all of the following:
(a) a legend or subject line that says: “Intellectual Property Infringement Notice”;
(b) a description of the intellectual property that you claim has been infringed;
(c) a description of where the material that you claim is infringing or is the subject of infringing activity is located that is reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material (please include the URL of the App on which the material appears);
(d) your full name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address;
(e) a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the owner of the intellectual property, its agent, or the law;
(f) a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that all the information in your notice is accurate, and that you are the owner of the intellectual property at issue (or, if you are not the owner, then your statement must indicate that you are authorized to act on the behalf of the owner of the intellectual property that is allegedly infringed); and
(g) your electronic or physical signature.
We will act on such notices in our sole discretion. Any user of the App that fails to respond satisfactorily to ATLAS with regard to any such notice is subject to suspension or termination. We may send the information that you provide in your notice to the person who provided the allegedly infringing material.
6. Notices, Questions and Customer Service

Neither ATLAS, nor its officers, employees, contractors, or shareholders shall be liable for any harm or damages resulting from use, modification, transmission, distribution, and/or dissemination of any such links. Such liability shall be borne entirely by the end user who initially disseminated any such hyperlink.

Any activities you engage in connection with any of the Third Party Services are subject to the privacy and other policies, terms and conditions of use, fees and/or sale, and rules issued by the operator of the Third Party Services.

Features and services may include the ability to access the App’s features, upload content to the App, receive messages from the App, and download applications to your wireless Device (collectively, “Wireless Features”). You are responsible for standard messaging, data, and other fees that may be charged or deducted by your carrier to participate in Wireless Features. Your carrier may prohibit or restrict certain Wireless Features or certain Wireless Features may be incompatible with your carrier or wireless Device. Contract your carrier with questions regarding these issues.
11. Dispute Resolution
Certain portions of this Section 11 are deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and ATLAS agree that we intend that this Section 11 satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act. This Section 11 can only be amended by mutual agreement.
A. First – Try to Resolve Disputes and Excluded Disputes. If any controversy, allegation, or claim arises out of or relates to the Site, the Content, your UGC, these Terms, or any Additional Terms, whether heretofore or hereafter arising (collectively, “Dispute”), or to any of ATLAS’s actual or alleged intellectual property rights (an “Excluded Dispute”), then you and we agree to send a written notice to the other providing a reasonable description of the Dispute or Excluded Dispute, along with a proposed resolution of it. Our notice to you will be sent to you based on the most recent contact information that you provide us. But if no such information exists or if such information is not current, then we have no obligation under this Section 11.A. Your notice to us must be sent to:
ATLAS Mobile Technologies Attn: Legal Dept 16192 Coastal Highway Lewes, DE 19958 For a period of sixty (60) days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, ATLAS and you will engage in a dialogue in order to attempt to resolve the Dispute or Excluded Dispute, though nothing will require either you or ATLAS to resolve the Dispute or Excluded Dispute on terms with respect to which you and ATLAS, in each of our sole discretion, are not comfortable. B. Binding Arbitration. If we cannot resolve a Dispute as set forth in Section 11.A (or agree to arbitration in writing with respect to an Excluded Dispute) within sixty (60) days of receipt of the notice, then ANY AND ALL DISPUTES ARISING BETWEEN YOU AND ATLAS (WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, STATUTE, REGULATION, ORDINANCE, TORT – INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO FRAUD, ANY OTHER INTENTIONAL TORT, OR NEGLIGENCE – COMMON LAW, CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISION, RESPONDEAT SUPERIOR, AGENCY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY), WHETHER ARISING BEFORE OR AFTER THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF THESE TERMS, MUST BE RESOLVED BY FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION. THIS INCLUDES ANY AND ALL DISPUTES BASED ON ANY PRODUCT, SERVICE OR ADVERTISING CONNECTED TO THE PROVISION OR USE OF THE APP. The Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), not state law, shall govern the arbitrability of all disputes between ATLAS and you regarding these Terms (and any Additional Terms) and the App. ATLAS and you agree, however, that Delaware or federal law shall apply to and govern, as appropriate, any and all claims or causes of action, remedies, and damages arising between you and ATLAS, whether arising or stated in contract, statute, common law, or any other legal theory, without regard to Delaware choice of law principles that might apply other states’ laws. Disputes will be resolved solely by binding arbitration in accordance with the then-current commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). If a party properly submits the Dispute to the AAA for formal arbitration and the AAA is unwilling to get a hearing then either party can elect to have the arbitration administered by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services Inc. (“JAMS”) using JAMS’ streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures, or by any other arbitration administration service that you and an officer or legal representative of ATLAS consent to in writing. If an in-person arbitration hearing is required, then it will be conducted in the “metropolitan statistical area” (as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau) where you are a resident at the time the Dispute is submitted to arbitration. You and we will pay the administrative and arbitrator’s fees and other costs in accordance with the applicable arbitration rules; but if applicable arbitration rules or laws require ATLAS to pay a greater portion or all of such fees and costs in order for this Section 11 to be enforceable, then ATLAS will have the right to elect to pay the fees and costs and proceed to arbitration. The arbitrator will apply applicable law and the provisions of these Terms and any Additional Terms, will be bound by these Terms and any Additional Terms, will determine any Dispute according to the applicable law and facts based upon the record and no other basis, and will issue a reasoned award only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope and enforceability of the arbitration and class action waiver provisions are for the court to decide. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms or the App. C. No Class Action Matters. Disputes will be arbitrated only on an individual basis and will not be joined or consolidated with any other arbitrations or other proceedings that involve any claim or controversy of any other party. YOU AND ATLAS AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. There shall be no right or authority for any Dispute to be arbitrated on a class action basis or on any basis involving Disputes brought to a purported representative capacity on behalf of the general public, or other persons or entities similarly situated. But if, for any reason, any court with competent jurisdiction holds that this restriction is unconscionable or unenforceable, then our agreement in Section 11.B to arbitrate will not apply and the Dispute must be brought exclusively in court pursuant to Section 11.D Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 11, any and all issues relating to the scope, interpretation and enforceability of this Section 11.C, including the class action waiver provisions contained herein, are to be decided only by a court of competent jurisdiction, and not by the arbitrator. D. Federal and State Courts in Delaware. Except to the extent that arbitration is required in Section 11.B, and except as to the enforcement of any arbitration decision or award, any action or proceeding relating to any Dispute may only be instituted in state or Federal court in Lewes, Delaware. Accordingly, you and ATLAS consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts for such matters. E. Small Claims Matters Are Excluded From Arbitration Requirement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either of us may bring qualifying claim of Disputes (but not Excluded Disputes) in small claims court, subject to Section 11.D.
(a) the App (including the Content and the User-Generated Content);
(b) the functions, features, or any other elements on, or made accessible through, the App;
(c) any products, services, or instructions offered or referenced at or linked through the App;
(d) security associated with the transmission of your User-Generated Content transmitted to ATLAS or via the App;

C. Operation of App. The App is based in the United States. It is not customized for any other country.
D. Severability; Interpretation. If any provision of these Terms, or any Additional Terms, is for any reason deemed invalid, unlawful, void, or unenforceable by a court or arbitrator of competent jurisdiction, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms or the Additional Terms, and the invalidity of the provision will not affect the validity or enforceability of the remainder of these Terms or the applicable Additional Terms. Wherever the word “including” is used in these Terms or any applicable Additional Terms, the word will be deemed to mean “including, without limitation.”
E. Communications. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
F. Termination and Survival.
