US - Copyright Infringement Notice
We ask our members to respect the intellectual property rights of others. It is our policy to respond appropriately to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement, as set forth more fully below. In our sole discretion, we may remove content that a member has posted on our site that may be infringing on another person’s intellectual property rights with or without notice to the potential infringer. In accordance with applicable law, we have adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances and at our sole discretion, members of BzzAgent who are deemed to be repeat infringers. If we remove or disable access in response to an Infringement Notice (as defined below), we will make a good faith attempt to contact the member who posted the 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 by a member of BzzAgent, then you may send us a written notice that includes all of the following:

It is often difficult to determine if your copyright has been infringed. we may elect to not respond to Infringement Notices that do not substantially comply with all of the foregoing requirements, and we may elect to remove allegedly infringing material that comes to its attention via notices that do not substantially comply with applicable laws.
Please note that applicable laws provide that any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability.
We may send the information that you provide in your notice to the person who provided the allegedly infringing work. That person may elect to send us a Counter-Notification.
Without limiting our other rights, we may, in appropriate circumstances, terminate a repeat infringer’s status as a BzzAgent and any other website owned or operated by us.
You must be 18 years of age or older to be a member of BzzAgent. We have the right to determine which members are eligible to participate in any of the campaigns (sometimes called “programmes”) we offer. We can also remove a member from a campaign at any time for any reason.
You may terminate your participation as a member at any time, for any reason, by visiting the “close my account” page. We may terminate you as a member for any reason, at any time. We will try to give you reasonable notice of termination, except in certain cases such as your violation of these terms or any other BzzAgent policies or guidelines made available to you in advance, or harassment or abuse of other BzzAgent members.
Our agreement with you under these Terms & Conditions is in full force and effect while you visit the sites and/or are a member of BzzAgent. Any section which by its nature is intended to survive termination, shall survive termination of these Terms and Conditions.
As a member we may grant you certain privileges and benefits based on the quality and quantity of activity in the campaigns in which you participate. For example, members may receive access to special campaign previews, campaign pre-registration, enhanced product and hand-out packages. We will determine which, if any, benefits a member is eligible to receive in our sole discretion.

These Terms & Conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Ohio unless you are located in the European Union, where local laws shall apply. For all users not located in the European Union, you hereby agree to submit to the jurisdiction of, and agree that venue is proper in, the courts in Hamilton County, Ohio in any such legal action or proceeding. For users located in the European Union, you agree to submit to the local courts of your jurisdiction.
You agree that all disputes, actions, and claims relating to your access to or use of the site, services, and all matters arising out of or related to these Terms and Conditions (except for legal action taken to seek an injunction or other equitable relief related to the site, services, or user generated content, or claims related to the validity or enforceability of your or our intellectual property rights) (collectively “Dispute”) will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA), federal arbitration law, and laws of the State of Ohio, without regard to choice of law principles unless you are located in the European Union, where local laws shall apply. If you are not located in the European Union, you furthermore agree that any Dispute will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify, and you are giving up the right to litigate (or participate in as a party or class member) all Disputes in court before a judge or jury. Instead, all Disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator, whose decision will be final except for a limited right of appeal under the FAA. Any court with jurisdiction over the parties may enforce the arbitrator’s award. If you are located in the European Union, any Dispute may be resolved by the local courts.
If you are located in any jurisdiction, in the event of a Dispute, either you or us must give the other a Notice of Dispute, which is a written statement that sets forth the name, address and contact information of the party giving it, the facts giving rise to the dispute, and the relief requested. You must send any Notice of Dispute by U.S. Mail to BzzAgent at dunnhumby, General Counsel, 3825 Edwards Road, Suite 600, Cincinnati, OH 45209.
For users located in Germany, the EU Commission has provided an online platform for online dispute resolution under the following link (“ODR Platform) which you may use in case of any dispute: https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/odr/main/?event=main.home.show&reload=false.
However, for all users not located in the European Union, the following paragraphs shall apply. Both of us will attempt to resolve any Dispute through informal negotiation within 60 days from the date the Notice of Dispute is sent. After 60 days, either you or us may commence arbitration. You are not required to wait 60 days to file a small claims action.
The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA's supplementary procedures for consumer-related disputes. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. You agree to commence arbitration only in your county of residence or in Hamilton County, Ohio. We will reimburse those fees for claims totalling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, we will not seek attorneys’ fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submission, or in person by following the AAA rules. In a Dispute involving $10,000 or less, any hearing will be telephonic unless the arbitrator finds good cause to hold an in-person hearing instead. The arbitrator may award the same damages to you individually as a court could.
You agree that the making of claims or resolution of Disputes pursuant to this agreement shall be in your individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class, consolidated, or representative proceeding. You agree that to the extent permitted by applicable law, that any and all Disputes will be resolved individually in the forum designated in this section, without resort to any form of class action.
To the extent permitted by law, any Dispute to which this section applies must be filed within one year in small claims court or in arbitration with the AAA. The one-year period begins when the claim or Notice of Dispute could first be filed. If such a Dispute isn't filed within one year, it's permanently barred.
If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial.
