- Notification of Claimed Copyright Infringement Policy. We respect the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users and Members to do the same. We have adopted this Copyright Infringement Complaints policy in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998, including the Online Copyright Infringement Liability Limitation Act (the “DMCA”). We will respond to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement that substantially comply with the requirements set forth here. We do not act as an arbiter or judge of disputes about intellectual property rights. It is our policy to remove content posted by users on our Website (including any photo galleries), which content we believe in good faith is infringing a copyrighted work. By removing content, as a prudential matter, we do not endorse or validate a claim of infringement. If we remove user-generated content from the Website, we will make a good-faith attempt to contact the party responsible for posting the content so the owner may make a counter-notice as provided for below.
(a) Designated Agent. Our designated agent for handling infringement notices and counter-notices: Waverley Country Club, Attn: DMCA Agent, P 1100 SE Waverly Drive, Portland, OR 97222; firstname.lastname@example.org.
(b) Infringement Notices. If you believe your work has been displayed or otherwise used on the Website in a manner that infringes your copyright, you must provide written notice to our Designated Agent via mail and/or e-mail. Please note that you may be liable for damages, including without limitation attorneys’ fees and costs, if you materially misrepresent that your work has been infringed by content on the Website. If you are unsure whether your work has been infringed, we recommend that you contact an attorney before sending notice to us. Use this format for your notice: (i) Identify your work that you believe has been infringed by content on the Website; (ii) identify all content that you claim infringes your work, describe how the content infringes your work, and describe where the content is located on the Website; (iii) provide your full name, mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail address, if any; (iv) include a statement that, under the penalty of perjury, you have a good-faith belief that use of the content in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; (v) include a statement that the information in the notice is accurate, and, under penalty of perjury, that you are the copyright owner or that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the right that is allegedly infringed; and (vi) sign the notice physically or electronically. You acknowledge and agree that we may provide some or all of the information in your notice (including your name and contact information) to the individual or entity who posted the allegedly infringing content. In addition, it would help if you included a copy of the copyright Certificate of Registration for your work, if any, or other information that supports your claim that your work is protected by copyright and that you are the owner of that copyright or are authorized to act on behalf of the owner. If your notice contains the required information, and if we have a good-faith belief that the content is infringing your copyright, we will remove the content.
(c) Counter-Notices. The provider of affected content may make a counter notice by writing to our Designated Agent via mail and/or email. Please note that you may be liable for damages, including without limitation attorneys’ fees and costs, if you materially misrepresent that your content is not infringing the copyright of a third party. If you are unsure whether your content infringes the copyright of a third party, we recommend that you contact an attorney before sending notice to us. Use this format for your notice: (i) Identify the content that has been removed, including a description of where the content was located on the Websites before it was removed; (ii) provide your full name, mailing address, telephone number, and email address, if any; (iii) include a statement that, under the penalty of perjury, you have a good-faith belief that the content was removed as a result of mistake or misidentification of the content to be removed; (iv) include 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 your address is outside the United States, in the Federal District Court of Oregon, and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notice of the alleged infringement or an agent of such person; and (v) sign the notice physically or electronically. You acknowledge and agree that we may provide some or all of the information in your notice (including your name and contact information) to the individual or entity who complained of the alleged infringement.
After reviewing your counter notice, we may determine that the content is not infringing and may reinstate the content on the Website.
- Indemnification.By using the Website or Services you agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Waverley and its affiliates, licensors, service providers, subcontractors, and suppliers, and each of their respective officers, directors, members, shareholders, employees, representatives, and agents (collectively, the “Indemnitees”) from and against any and all suits, losses, claims, demands, liabilities, expenses, damages and costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, court costs and expenses, arising or resulting from (i) your misuse of the Website, the Services, their content, and/or any other materials they contain; (ii) your violation of these Terms or breach of, or the falsity of, any of your representations or warranties or covenants in these Terms; (iii) your negligent or willful misconduct; (iv) the Submissions that you submit through the Website; or (v) your violation of any applicable law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or any third party’s rights, including but not limited to, copyright infringement, trade secret misappropriation, infringement of third party’s trademark or other intellectual property rights, violation of any third party privacy right or right of publicity, or any claim of defamation, libel or slander. This obligation survives the termination of this Agreement and continues even after you stop using the Website and Services.
If you cause a technical disruption of the Website or Services or the systems transmitting the Website or Services to you or others, you agree to be responsible for any and all losses, liabilities, expenses, damages, and costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs, arising or resulting from that disruption.

The remainder of the Terms shall have the same force and effect as if such provision had never been included.
