10.MISCELLANEOUS TERMS

 

  • No variation of any of these Terms shall be effective unless in writing and signed by Black History Curriculum and you. No action of Black History Curriculum, other than an express written waiver, may be construed as a waiver of any clause of this Agreement. In the event that Black History Curriculum waives any specific part of this Agreement, such fact does not mean that any other part is waived.

The parties hereto waive any right they may have to a jury trail.
  • You recognize that the Media possess a special, unique and extraordinary character which makes difficult the assessment of monetary damages which Black History Curriculum or its content producers and contributors might sustain by an unauthorized use. You agree that irreparable injury would be caused to Black History Curriculum or its content producers and contributors by such unauthorized use, and that injunctive relief would be appropriate in the event of breach of this Agreement.
  • If after notice to you, you fail to take any action which you are obliged to take hereunder, Black History Curriculum and its content producers and contributors shall have the right and option, but not the duty, to bring an action for specific performance to compel such action, and obtain all reasonable costs, expenses, attorney's fees and disbursements with respect thereto if such specific performance is awarded by a court of competent jurisdiction.

COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL

Black History Curriculum respects the intellectual property of others and takes the protection of copyrights and all other intellectual property very seriously, and we ask Users to do the same.

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under US copyright law. If you believe in good faith that Content hosted by the Services infringes your copyright, you (or your agent) may send Black History Curriculum a notice requesting that the content or Material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information: (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow Black History Curriculum to locate the content or material within the Services; (d) the name, address, telephone number and email address (if available ) of the complaining party; (e) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the content or material in a manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send us a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirement imposed by the DMCA; see www.loc.gov/copyright for details.

Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Service should be sent to:

STATEMENT ON PLAGIARISM

Plagiarism is taking the work of another and misrepresenting it as your own. Black History Curriculum is adamantly opposed to such misrepresentation, and reserves the right to exclude any content posted on the site which it considers, at its sole discretion, to be in this category. Furthermore, we reserve the right to freeze the account of any contributor found to be submitting such materials. Any contributor who has acquired free access to Black History Curriculum Pro and submitted such materials shall also lose that free access. While it is impossible for Black History Curriculum to monitor proper use of sermon content used in the pulpit, we ask each user to acknowledge the work of others as they use it in their preaching.

CREDIT CARD FRAUD POLICY

In the unlikely event that you experience unauthorized use of your credit card on our web site or any web site, you are advised to promptly report the fraudulent activity to your credit card company. Most companies that issue credit card numbers have a toll-free number you may call for 24-hour service. For credit cards issues in the United States by law, once you report the loss or theft, you have no further responsibility for unauthorized charges. In any event, your maximum liability under federal law is $50 per card. If you suspect fraud, you may be asked to sign a statement under oath that you did not make the purchase(s) in question. 

Black History Curriculum cannot directly provide credit card and billing information that has allegedly been used in a fraudulent manner. Black History Curriculum will, however, contact the credit card company to report a claim of fraudulent use at the specific written email request of the cardholder, or when we suspect credit card fraud has occured. Requests to report fraud should be sent to [email protected] and must include the full name, email address, mailing address and phone number of the person claiming fraud. Please call us at 1-800-860-8642, Monday through Friday 9am - 6:30pm (EST), to confirm we have received your written request. The cardholder should be aware that they may be asked by their credit card company to sign a statement under oath that they did not make the purchase(s) in question. We will fully cooperate with all government organizations to the fullest extent possible to help those responsible for credit card fraud be held responsible. 

CONTACTING THE FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION (FTC) 

In addition to contacting your credit card company, you may want to contact the FTC. From FTC website: “The FTC works to prevent fraudulent, deceptive and unfair business practices in the marketplace and to provide information to help consumers spot, stop and avoid them. To file a complaint or get free information on consumer issues, visit ftc.gov or call toll-free, 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357); TTY: 1-866-653-4261. Watch a video, How to File a Complaint, at ftc.gov/video to learn more. The FTC enters consumer complaints into the Consumer Sentinel Network, a secure online database and investigative tool used by hundreds of civil and criminal law enforcement agencies in the U.S. and abroad.”

Void Where Prohibited

Although the UMI Site is accessible worldwide, not all features, products, or services discussed, referenced, provided, or offered through or on the UMI Site are available to all persons or in all geographic locations, or appropriate or available for use outside the United States.
