To file a notice of infringement with us, you must provide a written communication (by fax -- not by email, except by prior agreement) that sets forth the items specified below.
To expedite our ability to process your request, please use the following format (including section numbers):
1. Identify in sufficient detail the copyrighted work that you believe has been infringed upon (for example, "The copyrighted work at issue is the image that appears on http://www.forumgarden.com/forums/"URL") or other information sufficient to specify the copyrighted work being infringed.
2. Identify the material that you claim is infringing the copyrighted work listed in item #1 above.
YOU MUST IDENTIFY EACH ALLEGED COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT YOU ARE CLAIMING BY PROVIDING A DIRECT LINK TO A WEB PAGE THAT CONTAINS THE INFRINGING MATERIAL IN QUESTION. This requires you to provide the URL for each alleged copyright infringement that identifies the specific posts, as opposed to entire sites.
3. Provide information reasonably sufficient to permit DRA to contact you (email address is preferred).
4. Provide information, if possible, sufficient to permit DRA to notify the owner/administrator of the allegedly infringing webpage or other content (email address is preferred).
5. Include the following statement: "I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials described above as allegedly infringing is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law."
6. Include the following statement: "I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed."

How we gather information from users
How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate and the services provided. For
example, you may be asked to provide information when you register for access to certain portions of our site or request certain features, such as newsletters or
when you make a purchase. You may provide information when you participate in sweepstakes and contests, message boards and chat rooms, and other
interactive areas of our site. Like most Web sites, ForumGarden.com also collects information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be
transparent to our visitors. For example, we may log the name of your Internet Service Provider or use cookie technology to recognize you and hold information
from your visit. Among other things, the cookie may store your user name and password, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you
visit, or may control the number of times you encounter a particular advertisement while visiting our site. As we adopt additional technology, we may
also gather information through other means. In certain cases, you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser to refuse
to accept cookies, but if you do you may be unable to access certain portions of the site or may be asked to re-enter your user name and password, and we may
not be able to customize the site’s features according to your preferences.
What we do
with the information we collect
Like other Web publishers, we collect information to enhance your visit and deliver more individualized content and advertising. We respect your privacy and
do not share your information with anyone.
Aggregated Information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways. For example, we may combine information about your
usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to help enhance our site and services (e.g., to learn which pages are visited most or
what features are most attractive). Aggregated Information may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners. Again, this information does
not include any Personally Identifiable Information about you or allow anyone to identify you individually.
We may use Personally Identifiable Information collected on ForumGarden.com to communicate with you about your registration and customization preferences;
Personally Identifiable Information collected by ForumGarden.com may also be used for other purposes, including but not limited to site administration,
troubleshooting, processing of ecommerce transactions, administration of sweepstakes and contests, and other communications with you. Certain third
parties who provide technical support for the operation of our site (our Web hosting service for example) may access such information. We will use your
information only as permitted by law. In addition, from time to time as we continue to develop our business, we may sell, buy, merge or partner with other
companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets. We may also disclose your information in response to a
court order, at other times when we believe we are reasonably required to do so by law, in connection with the collection of amounts you may owe to us, and/or to
law enforcement authorities whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary. Please note we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.
