If you believe that your copyright or other intellectual property rights have been infringed and they are not subject to US law and jurisdiction (for example, if you consider the infringement is subject to the E-Commerce Directive of the European Union), then we invite you to contact us using the procedure set out at section 7) for the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act to the extent relevant. You can contact email@example.com if you wish to discuss this further with Perch.
In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable laws around the world, Perch has adopted a policy that it will promptly terminate without notice any user's access to The Perch Service if that user is determined by Perch to be a "repeat infringer." A repeat infringer includes, without limitation a user who has been notified by Perch of infringing activity violations more than twice and/or who has had their Broadcaster Content or any other user-submitted content removed from The Perch Service more than twice. Perch may also at our sole discretion limit access to The Perch Service and/or terminate the accounts of any users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement.
In addition, Perch accommodates and does not interfere with standard technical measures used by intellectual property rights owners to protect their materials.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPH CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES WITH PERCH AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM PERCH.
You and Perch agree to arbitrate any dispute arising from these Terms of Service or your use of The Perch Service, except that you and Perch are not required to arbitrate any dispute in which either party seeks equitable and other relief for the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets, or patents. ARBITRATION PREVENTS YOU FROM SUING IN COURT OR FROM HAVING A JURY TRIAL. You and Perch agree that you will notify each other in writing of any dispute within thirty (30) days of when it arises. Notice to Perch shall be sent to email@example.com. You and Perch further agree: to attempt informal resolution prior to any demand for arbitration; that any arbitration will occur in San Francisco County, California; that arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator in accordance with the rules of JAMS; and that the state or federal courts in San Francisco County, California have exclusive jurisdiction over any appeals of an arbitration award and over any suit between the parties not subject to arbitration. Other than class procedures and remedies discussed below, the arbitrator has the authority to grant any remedy that would otherwise be available in court. Any dispute between the parties will be governed by this Agreement and the laws of the State of California and applicable United States law, without giving effect to any conflict of laws principles that may provide for the application of the law of another jurisdiction. Whether the dispute is heard in arbitration or in court, you and Perch will not commence against the other a class action, class arbitration or other representative action or proceeding.
Perch may provide you with notices, including those regarding changes to Perch's terms and conditions, by email, regular mail or postings on The Perch Service. Notice will be deemed given twenty-four hours after email is sent, unless Perch is notified that the email address is invalid. Alternatively, we may give you legal notice by mail to a postal address, if provided by you through The Perch Service. In such case, notice will be deemed given three days after the date of mailing. Notice posted on The Perch Service is deemed given 30 days following the initial posting.
The failure of either you or us to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms of Service will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Any waiver of any provision of these Terms of Service will be effective only if in writing and signed by the relevant party.
If any provision of these Terms of Service or any guidelines is held to be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then for both you and us that provision will be limited or eliminated from these Terms of Service to the minimum extent necessary and will not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
These Terms of Service and related Guidelines, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Perch without restriction. Any assignment attempted to be made in violation of this Terms of Service shall be void.
Upon termination of these Terms of Service, any provision which, by its nature or express terms should survive, will survive such termination or expiration, including, but not limited to, Sections 7, 8, 11(b)(ii), 11(c), 11(d), 12, 15-20.
The heading references herein are for convenience purposes only, do not constitute a part of these Terms of Service, and will not be deemed to limit or affect any of the provisions of it.
