2. CONTENT YOU SUBMIT
A. User-Generated Content.
(i) General. In some contexts, CBIZ offers users of the Online Services the opportunity to create, build, post, upload, display, publish, distribute, transmit, broadcast, or otherwise make available on or submit through the Online Services, or on or in response to our pages or posts on any third-party platforms or in connection with any of our promotions by any media or manner, or otherwise submit to us (e.g., on our Facebook or other social media pages, in response to our tweets, through a sweepstakes or contest, or by otherwise sending it to us) (collectively, “submit”) messages, text, illustrations, files, images, graphics, photos, comments, responses, sounds, music, videos, information, content, ratings, reviews, data, questions, suggestions, personally identifiable information, or other information or materials and the ideas contained therein (collectively, but excluding CBIZ Licensed Elements included therein, “User-Generated Content” or “UGC”). You may submit UGC through your profile or account, forums, blogs, message boards, social networking environments, content creation and posting tools, benefits information submission features, contact us tools, email, and other communications functionality. Except to the extent of the rights and license you grant in these Terms and, subject to any applicable Additional Terms, you retain whatever legally cognizable right, title, and interest that you have in your UGC.
In your communications with CBIZ, please keep in mind that we do not seek any unsolicited ideas or materials for products or services, or even suggested improvements to products or services, including, without limitation, ideas, concepts, inventions, or designs for websites, apps, software, products, services, or otherwise (collectively, “Unsolicited Ideas and Materials”). Any Unsolicited Ideas and Materials you submit are deemed UGC and licensed to us as set forth below. In addition, CBIZ retains all of the rights held by members of the general public with regard to your Unsolicited Ideas and Materials. CBIZ’ receipt of your Unsolicited Ideas and Materials is not an admission by CBIZ of their novelty, priority, or originality, and it does not impair CBIZ’ right to contest existing or future intellectual property rights relating to your Unsolicited Ideas and Materials.
(v) Representations and Warranties Related to Your UGC. Each time you submit any UGC, you represent and warrant that you are at least the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which you reside and are the parent or legal guardian, or have all proper consents from the parent or legal guardian, of any minor who is depicted in or contributed to any UGC you submit, and that, as to that UGC, (a) you are the sole author and owner of the intellectual property and other rights to the UGC, or you have a lawful right to submit the UGC and grant CBIZ the rights to it that you are granting by these Terms and any applicable Additional Terms, all without any CBIZ obligation to obtain consent of any third-party and without creating any obligation or liability of CBIZ; (b) the UGC is accurate; (c) the UGC does not and, as to CBIZ’ permitted uses and exploitation set forth in these Terms, will not infringe any intellectual property or other right of any third-party; and (d) the UGC will not violate these Terms or any applicable Additional Terms, or cause injury or harm to any person.

4. CREATING AN Account.
A. You may have the ability to create an account with us and make changes to it from time to time.

You agree that you will not reveal your Access ID to any other person, or take actions that could cause your Access ID to be revealed to any person, whether intentional or not (e.g., writing down your Access ID in a document easily seen by others, using an unsecured electronic mailing to transmit your Access ID, providing your Access ID to your administrative assistant to check your account balance). Do not reveal your Access ID to any person who contacts you (e.g., who calls you or sends you an electronic mail) even if that person claims to be from CBIZ. Our customer service agents may request your Access ID to verify your identity, but only on a telephone call that you have placed to us.

If you provide us a phone number, you consent to our calling or texting you at such number regarding the Services and any other CBIZ services you receive or request information regarding. You consent to such calls or texts via use of an autodialer and/or prerecorded message, subject to your opt-out options described in Section 8.B.

Text and call notifications may be subject to additional terms and consent when you provide your number, which will be Additional Terms.

If any information you provide is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, without limiting other remedies, we have the right to terminate your use of the Services and any other CBIZ services and to recover from you any costs or losses incurred as a direct or indirect result of the inaccurate or incomplete information.

A. Devices and Connectivity. We do not warrant that the Software provided by CBIZ to utilize the Services or any other software used in connection with the Services will be compatible with other third-party software nor do we warrant that operation of the Services and the associated software will not damage or disrupt other software or hardware. You are responsible for obtaining and maintaining all Devices and other equipment and software, and the security thereof, and all internet service provider, mobile service, and other services needed for your access to and use of the Services and you will be responsible for all charges related to them. You further agree to look solely to the entity that manufactured and/or sold you the Device for any issues related to the Device and its compatibility with the Services and/or the Software. You are responsible for use of your Device in compliance with all applicable third party (e.g., manufacturer and carrier) obligations and restrictions shall not use the Services and/or the Software in a manner inconsistent therewith.
By using the Online Services, you agree that CBIZ may change, alter, or modify the settings or configurations on your Device in order to allow for or optimize your use of the Online Services (e.g., save content, access data, enable services, etc.). For instance, subject to any permission settings you choose, our app may access and read accounts, data and/or content on your Device, add content to your Device, and change settings of your Device, for reasons such as allowing you to submit receipts for reimbursement and send other documents to us, enabling phone call, push notification and/or SMS text notices; saving app images, sound files and writing usage logs to the Device; sending messages you initiate; sending and receiving data needed for app operations; and to provide you notice when you are not connected to a network.

Your Device settings may enable you to disable, change or limit some of these activities, and you can disable the app by uninstalling the app. When using the Online Services, you agree to comply with any and all third-party terms that are applicable to any platform, website, technology or service that interacts with the Online Services.
You must be connected to the Internet for the entire time you are using the Online Services, the cost and provision of which is your responsibility. The quality of the display of the Content may vary from device to device, and may be affected by a variety of factors, such as your Device, your location, the bandwidth available through and/or speed of your Internet connection. CBIZ makes no representations or warranties about the quality of your Service experience on your Device or the ability of any Device to access or display the Content. In order to stream or download Content, your equipment must meet certain system requirements, including but not limited to having high-speed Internet access
Any issues related to the Services and/or the Software, including any system requirements, are covered and limited by this Agreement. Please refer to the Disclaimer of Representations and Warranties and Limitations of Our Liability provisions set forth in these Terms.
B. Communications Options. If you or your employer/plan sponsor provides us with an address, phone number, and/or e-mail, you consent to receive communications from us at such address or phone as set forth in Section 4.C or any applicable Additional Terms, subject to the following communications options:
(i)Text Messages: You may be given opportunities to subscribe to various text marketing or other text messaging programs and by doing so, you consent to receive ongoing text alerts (including by auto-dialers) from us related to our various businesses and affiliates, which may include information about employers/plan sponsors, except that if the scope of your consent for a particular subscription is limited that subscription will be so limited. Such consent is not required to purchase any product or service. For each subscription, text “HELP” for help and text “STOP” to terminate (i.e., opt-out) that subscription. Subsequent or different subscriptions will be unaffected by an opt-out. You consent to receive a text confirming any opt-out as well as non-marketing administrative or transactional messages. For subscriptions to recurring text messages, you may receive up to the number of text messages per month specified in your consent, or to which you later consent. Alerts auto-renew unless otherwise specified when you consented. You understand that we will send mobile text messages using automated technology. If you subscribe to text messages you represent that you are eighteen (18) years of age or older, or have obtained parental consent. Standard message, data and other fees may be charged by your carrier, and carriers may deduct charges from pre-paid amounts or data allowances, for which you are responsible. Contact your carrier for details. Not all phones and/or carriers are supported.
(ii)Email Messages: You may cancel or modify our email marketing communications you may receive from us by following the instructions contained within our promotional emails. This will not affect subsequent subscriptions and if your opt-out is limited to certain types of emails the opt-out will be so limited. Please note that we reserve the right to send you certain communications relating to your account or use of our Services, such as administrative and service announcements and these transactional account messages may be unaffected if you choose to opt-out from receiving our marketing communications.
9. ARBITRATION AND DISPUTE TERMS.
This Section is deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and CBIZ agree that we intend that this Section satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act. This Section 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 Services, including without limitation, the Content, your UGC, these Terms, or any Additional Terms, our privacy practices related to the Services, and offers made on and transactions and communications conducted through the Services (collectively, “Dispute”), or to any of CBIZ’ 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 9.A. Your notice to us must be sent to: CBIZ, Inc., firstname.lastname@example.org (Attn: Legal Department/Notices). Subject to Section 9.C, for a period of sixty (60) days from the date of receipt of notice from the other party, CBIZ 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 CBIZ to resolve the Dispute or Excluded Dispute on terms with respect to which you and CBIZ, in each of our sole discretion, are not comfortable.
B.Binding Arbitration. If we cannot resolve a Dispute as set forth in Section 9.A (or agree to arbitration in writing with respect to an Excluded Dispute) within sixty (60) days of receipt of the notice, then, subject to Section 9.C and as permitted by applicable law, ANY AND ALL DISPUTES ARISING BETWEEN YOU AND CBIZ (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 SERVICES. The Federal Arbitration Act, not state law, shall govern the arbitrability of all disputes between CBIZ and you regarding these Terms (and any Additional Terms) and the Services. CBIZ and you agree, however, that Ohio 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 CBIZ, whether arising or stated in contract, statute, common law, or any other legal theory, without regard to Ohio’s choice of law principles that might apply other laws.
Disputes will be resolved solely by binding arbitration in accordance with the then-current commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), except that the then current consumer dispute rules will apply to consumers. If a party properly submits the Dispute to the AAA for formal arbitration and the AAA is unwilling to arbitrate the Dispute 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 CBIZ 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 CBIZ to pay a greater portion or all of such fees and costs in order for this Section 9 to be enforceable, then CBIZ 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. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms or the Services.
C.Injunctive Relief. The foregoing provisions of this Section 9 will not apply to any legal action taken by CBIZ or you to seek an injunction or other equitable relief in connection with, any potential loss, cost, or damage (or any potential loss, cost, or damage) relating to the Services, any Content, your breach of these Terms of applicable Additional Terms and/or CBIZ’ intellectual property rights (including such CBIZ may claim that may be in dispute), CBIZ’ operations, and/or CBIZ’ products or services; provided however, your rights are subject to the following:
AS PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IF YOU CLAIM THAT YOU HAVE INCURRED ANY LOSS, DAMAGES, OR INJURIES IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES, THEN THE LOSSES, DAMAGES, AND INJURIES WILL NOT BE DEEMED IRREPARABLE OR SUFFICIENT TO ENTITLE YOU TO AN INJUNCTION OR TO OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF THAT MAY INTERFERE WITH OR PREVENT THE DEVELOPMENT OR EXPLOITATION OF ANY WEBSITE, APPLICATION, CONTENT, UGC, BENEFIT PROGRAMS, SERVICES, OR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY OFFERED, OWNED, LICENSED, USED OR CONTROLLED BY CBIZ (INCLUDING YOUR LICENSED UGC) OR A LICENSOR OF CBIZ. HOWEVER, THIS SECTION 9.C SHALL NOT LIMIT YOUR ABILITY TO SEEK OTHER EQUITABLE RELIEF, SUBJECT TO THESE TERMS AND ANY APPLICABLE ADDITIONAL TERMS.
D.No Class Action Matters and Jury Waiver. 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 CBIZ 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, or Excluded Dispute, to be determined on a class action basis or on any basis involving Disputes, or Excluded 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 9.B to arbitrate will not apply and the Dispute must be brought exclusively in court pursuant to Section 9.E. As permitted by applicable law, the parties each waive any right to trial by jury.
E.Federal and State Courts. Except to the extent that arbitration is required in Section 9.B, and except as to the enforcement of any arbitration decision or award, to the extent permitted by applicable law, any action or proceeding relating to any Dispute or Excluded Dispute may only be instituted in state court in Cuyahoga county, or Northern District Court in Cleveland, Ohio. Accordingly, you and CBIZ consent to the exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts for such matters. The court will apply the laws of Ohio without regard to conflict of law provisions that might apply other laws.
F.Small Claims Matters Are Excluded From Arbitration Requirement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either of us may bring a qualifying claim of Disputes (but not Excluded Disputes) in small claims court, subject to Sections 9.D and 9.E.
The provisions of this Section shall supersede any inconsistent provisions of any prior agreement between the parties. This Section 9 shall remain in full force and effect notwithstanding any termination of your use of the Services or these Terms.
10. Disclaimer of Representations and Warranties

C. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, THIS SECTION DOES NOT EXPAND OR LIMIT (I) CBIZ PARTIES’ LIABILITY FOR PERSONAL INJURY TO YOU CAUSED BY CBIZ PARTIES TO THE EXTENT NOT WAIVABLE OR WHICH CANNOT BE LIMITED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW; OR (II) ANY CAUSE OF ACTION YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST CBIZ PARTIES THAT IS NOT WAIVABLE OR CANNOT BE LIMITED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.
11. Limitations of Our Liability
A. AS PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL ANY CBIZ PARTIES BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, including personal injury or death or for any direct, indirect, economic, exemplary, special, punitive, incidental, or consequential losses or damages of any kind, including without limitation loss of profits, in connection with, or otherwise directly or indirectly related to, without limitation, the Services, Content, CBIZ Licensed Elements, UGC or other CBIZ products or services.
AS PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL CBIZ PARTIES’ TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU, FOR ALL POSSIBLE DAMAGES, LOSSES, AND CAUSES OF ACTION IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SERVICES AND YOUR RIGHTS UNDER THESE TERMS, EXCEED AN AMOUNT GREATER THAN AN AMOUNT YOU COMPENSATE CBIZ FOR SERVICES RENDERED BY CBIZ IN CONNECTION WITH THE MATTERS THAT UNDERLIE THE CLAIM(S) (IF ANY) OR ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100), WHICHEVER IS LESS.
B. The foregoing limitations of liability will apply even if any of the events or circumstances were foreseeable and even if CBIZ Parties were advised of or should have known of the possibility of such losses or damages, regardless of whether you bring an action based in contract, negligence, strict liability, or tort (including whether caused, in whole or in part, by negligence, acts of god, telecommunications failure, or destruction of the Services).
C. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, THIS SECTION DOES NOT EXPAND OR LIMIT (I) CBIZ PARTIES’ LIABILITY FOR PERSONAL INJURY TO YOU CAUSED BY CBIZ PARTIES TO THE EXTENT NOT WAIVABLE OR WHICH CANNOT BE LIMITED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW; OR (II) ANY CAUSE OF ACTION YOU MAY HAVE AGAINST CBIZ PARTIES THAT IS NOT WAIVABLE OR CANNOT BE LIMITED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.
It is your responsibility to review the posted Terms and any applicable Additional Terms each time you use the Services (at least prior to each transaction or submission). The current version of this Agreement can be viewed at any time under the Help tab on the website (after you enter your username and password). EACH TIME YOU SIGN IN TO OR OTHERWISE USE THE SERVICES YOU ARE ENTERING INTO A NEW AGREEMENT WITH US ON THE THEN APPLICABLE TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND YOU AGREE THAT WE MAY NOTIFY YOU OF NEW TERMS BY POSTING THEM ON THE SERVICES (OR IN ANY OTHER REASONABLE MANNER OF NOTICE WHICH WE ELECT), AND THAT YOUR USE OF THE SERVICES AFTER SUCH NOTICE CONSTITUTES YOUR GOING FORWARD AGREEMENT TO THE NEW TERMS FOR YOUR NEW USE AND TRANSACTIONS. Any new Terms or Additional Terms will be effective as to new use and transactions as of the time that we post them, or such later date as may be specified in them or in other notice to you. In the event any notice to you of new, revised, or additional terms is determined by a tribunal to be insufficient, the prior agreement shall continue until sufficient notice to establish a new agreement occurs. You can reject any new, revised or additional terms by discontinuing use of the Services.
13. General Provisions.
A. CBIZ’s Consent or Approval. As to any provision in these Terms or any applicable Additional Terms that grants CBIZ a right of consent or approval, or permits CBIZ to exercise a right in its “sole discretion,” CBIZ may exercise that right in its sole and absolute discretion. No CBIZ consent or approval may be deemed to have been granted by CBIZ without being in writing and signed by an officer of CBIZ.
C. Operation of Service; Availability of Products and Services; International Issues. CBIZ controls and operates the Services from the U.S.A., and makes no representation that the Services is appropriate or available for use beyond the U.S.A. If you use the Services from other locations, you are doing so on your own initiative and responsible for compliance with applicable local laws regarding your online conduct and acceptable content, if and to the extent local laws apply.
D. Export Controls. You are responsible for complying with all applicable trade regulations and laws both foreign and domestic. Except as authorized by U.S. law, you agree and warrant not to export or re-export the software to any county, or to any person, entity, or end-user subject to U.S. export controls or sanctions.
E. Severability; Interpretation. If any provision of these Terms, or any applicable 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 applicable 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. To the extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to waive and will waive, any applicable statutory and common law that may permit a contract to be construed against its drafter.
G. Assignment. CBIZ may assign its rights and obligations under these Terms and any applicable Additional Terms, in whole or in part, to any party at any time without any notice. These Terms and any applicable Additional Terms may not be assigned by you, and you may not delegate your duties under them, without the prior written consent of an officer of CBIZ.
H. Complete Agreement; No Waiver. These Terms, and any applicable Additional Terms, reflect our complete agreement regarding the Services and supersede any prior agreements, representations, warranties, assurances or discussion related to the Services. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms or any applicable Additional Terms, (i) no failure or delay by you or CBIZ in exercising any of rights, powers, or remedies under will operate as a waiver of that or any other right, power, or remedy, and (ii) no waiver or modification of any term of these Terms or any applicable Additional Terms will be effective unless in writing and signed by the party against whom the waiver or modification is sought to be enforced.
I. Electronic Delivery and Communication. By using this Service, you agree to form a contractual relationship with your employer/plan sponsor and/or CBIZ using electronics means.

Procedure For Alleging Copyright Infringement
A.DMCA Notice. CBIZ asks our users 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 CBIZ’ sole discretion, CBIZ may remove content that may be infringing on another person’s intellectual property rights with or without notice to the potential infringer. In accordance with the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) and other applicable law, CBIZ has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances, users who are deemed to be repeat infringers.
B.If we remove or disable access in response to a DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice, we will make a good faith attempt to contact the owner or administrator of the affected 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 Online Services, 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 full URL of the page(s) on the Services on which the material appears);
(iv) your full name, address, telephone number, and email 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.
CBIZ will only respond to DMCA Notices that it receives by mail, email, or facsimile at the addresses below:
By Mail: CBIZ, Inc. (Attn: Legal Department/Notices)
6050 Oak Tree Boulevard
Cleveland, OH 44131
By Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
By Facsimile: 216-447-9007
For more information call: 216-447-9000
It is often difficult to determine if your copyright has been infringed. CBIZ may elect to not respond to DMCA Notices that do not substantially comply with all of the foregoing requirements, and CBIZ may elect to remove allegedly infringing material that comes to its attention via notices that do not substantially comply with the DMCA.
Please note that the DMCA provides 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 DMCA Counter-Notification.
Without limiting CBIZ’ other rights, CBIZ may, in appropriate circumstances, terminate a repeat infringer’s access to the Online Services and any other website owned or operated by CBIZ.
C.Counter-Notification. If access to the Online Services to a work that you submitted to CBIZ is disabled or the work is removed as a result of a DMCA Copyright Infringement 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 full URL of the page(s) on the Online Services 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, email 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 the Northern District of Ohio), 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) in not less than ten (10) and not more than fourteen (14) business days following receipt of the DMCA Counter-Notification. However, we will not do this if we first receive notice at the addresses above that the party who sent us the DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice has filed a lawsuit asking a court for an order restraining the person who provided the material from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on the Services. You should also be aware that we may forward the Counter-Notification to the party who sent us the DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice.
