    Email: dmca@vue360.com

    Please be aware that, in order to be effective, your notice of claim must comply with the detailed requirements set forth in the DMCA, set forth in 17 U.S.C. Sec. 512(c)(3). and to consult with a legal advisor before sending your notice of claim.  You should note that there are be penalties for false claims under the DMCA, including your liability for any damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees, incurred by us or by the alleged infringer as a result of reliance upon any misrepresentation resulting in the removal or disabling of access to the material claimed to be infringing. Furthermore, we are not obligated to remove posts that do not violate your valid copyright or are otherwise deemed fair use. 

    It is our policy, in appropriate circumstances and at our discretion, to disable and/or terminate any accounts of users who repeatedly infringe or are repeatedly charged with infringing the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of others. A repeat infringer subject to termination includes without limitation any user who has been notified by us of infringing activity violations more than twice and/or has had any user-submitted content removed from the Vue360 Service more than twice. We reserve the right to terminate the accounts of any users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others regardless of repeat infringement (i.e. upon any “first strike”).

    If you are a Vue360 Account holder and have had User Content removed or disabled pursuant to a third-party DMCA, and you believe your User Content is not infringing or otherwise have appropriate authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the material in your User Content, you may send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent:

  • Identification of the User Content that has been removed or disabled and the location of said User Content before it was removed or disabled;
  • A statement that you have a good faith belief that the User Content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake, bad faith, or a misidentification of the Content;
  • A statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court in Nashville, Tennessee, and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement; and
  • Your physical or electronic signature.
  • If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, we may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed User Content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the User Content provider, member, or user, the removed User Content may be replaced, or access to it restored, after receipt of the counter-notice at our sole discretion.

  • Limitation of Liability
  • TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW IN THE APPLICABLE JURISDICTION: IN NO EVENT SHALL VUE360, ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, OR AGENTS, BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHATSOEVER RESULTING FROM ANY (A) ERRORS, MISTAKES, OR INACCURACIES OF CONTENT, (B) PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, OF ANY NATURE WHATSOEVER, RESULTING FROM YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE VUE360 SERVICE, (C) ANY UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS TO OR USE OF OUR SECURE SERVERS AND/OR ANY AND ALL PERSONAL INFORMATION AND/OR FINANCIAL INFORMATION STORED THEREIN, (D) ANY INTERRUPTION OR CESSATION OF TRANSMISSION TO OR FROM VUE360 SERVICE, (E) ANY BUGS, VIRUSES, TROJAN HORSES, OR THE LIKE, WHICH MAY BE TRANSMITTED TO OR THROUGH VUE360 SERVICE BY ANY THIRD PARTY, AND/OR (F) ANY ERRORS OR OMISSIONS IN ANY CONTENT OR FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE OF ANY KIND INCURRED AS A RESULT OF YOUR USE OF ANY CONTENT POSTED, EMAILED, TRANSMITTED, OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE VIA THE VUE360 SERVICE, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND WHETHER OR NOT THE COMPANY IS ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

  • These Terms of Service shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of Tennessee, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. Any claim or dispute between you and Vue360 that arises in whole or in part from the Service shall be decided exclusively by a court of competent jurisdiction located in Davidson County, Tennessee. These Terms of Service, together with incorporated documents, shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Vue360 concerning the Vue360 Service.

    If any provision of these Terms of Service is deemed invalid or unenforceable under applicable law by a court of competent jurisdiction, the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision, or, at the option of Vue360, shall be construed in a manner to closely reflect, as much as possible, the intentions of the parties, and the remainder of the Terms of Service shall govern such use. If any of the policies, notices, terms or conditions in these Terms of Service shall be deemed invalid, void, or unenforceable for any reason, then such policy, notice, term, or condition shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining policy, notice, term, or condition

  • Miscellaneous
  • Vue360’s failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms of Service shall 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.

    These Terms of Service and any rights and licenses granted hereunder may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Vue360 without restriction. Any assignment attempted to be made in violation of this Terms of Service shall be void.
