Smash Chat may, in appropriate circumstances and at its sole discretion, disable and/or terminate use of the Website, Content, or Services by users who infringe the intellectual property of others. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, or your intellectual property rights have been otherwise violated, please provide Smash Chat’s Copyright Agent a Notice containing the following information:
an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright or other intellectual property interest;
a description of the copyrighted work or other intellectual property that you claim has been infringed;
a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Web site (providing URL(s) in the body of an email is the best way to help Smash Chat locate content quickly);
your name, address, telephone number, and email address;
a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;
a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your Notice is accurate and that you are the copyright or intellectual property owner or authorized to act on the copyright or intellectual property owner’s behalf.

Notices of claims of copyright or other intellectual property infringement and counter-notices should be sent to Smash Chat’s Copyright Agent who can be reached in the following ways:
Make sure you know whether the Content that you have seen on Smash Chat infringes your copyright. If you are not certain what your rights are, or whether your copyright has been infringed, you should check with a legal adviser first.
