THE SITES AND ALL CONTENT, MATERIALS, SERVICES, AND OPPORTUNITIES ON THE SITES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS.” TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE PURSUANT TO APPLICABLE LAW, THE FOUNDATION HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.

The Foundation does not make any warranties or representations regarding the use of the materials in the Sites in terms of their correctness, accuracy, adequacy, usefulness, timeliness, reliability, or otherwise. The Foundation does not make any warranties or representations regarding the security of your Personal Information.

YOUR USE OF THE SITES IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. NEITHER THE FOUNDATION, NOR ANY OF ITS SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, OR DIRECTORS, NOR ANY OF ITS AGENTS OR ANY OTHER PARTY INVOLVED IN CREATING, PRODUCING, OR DELIVERING THE SITES OR THEIR CONTENT, ARE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, PUNITIVE, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR OTHER DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH THE USE OF THE SITES WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF ANY SUCH DAMAGES.

13. Third-Party Links
To provide increased value to our visitors, the Foundation may link to sites operated by third parties. However, even if the third party is affiliated with the Foundation, the Foundation has no control over these linked sites, all of which may have separate privacy and data collection practices independent of the Foundation. These linked sites are only for your convenience, and therefore, you access them at your own risk. Without limiting the foregoing, the Foundation specifically disclaims any responsibility if such sites: infringe any third party’s intellectual property rights; are inaccurate, incomplete, or misleading; are not merchantable or fit for a particular purpose; do not provide adequate security; contain viruses or other items of a destructive nature; or are libelous or defamatory.
The Foundation does not endorse the content, or any products or services available, on such sites. Nonetheless, the Foundation seeks to protect the integrity of its website and the links placed upon it, and therefore requests any feedback on not only its own Sites, but for sites it links to as well (including if a specific link does not work).

Without limitation of Section 14 above, nothing contained on the Sites should be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel, or otherwise, any license or right to use any trademark, service mark, logo, or trade name (collectively, “Trademarks“) displayed or featured on the Sites without the written permission of the Foundation or such third party that may own the Trademarks displayed on the Sites.

17. Copyright Complaints
The Foundation respects the intellectual property of others. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under United States copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by the Foundation infringe your copyright rights, you (or your agent) may send us a notice requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information:
- a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
- identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single website are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
- identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material;
- information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and email address;
- a statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by you, your agent, or the law; and
- a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
All notices described above should be sent to the Foundation’s designated agent to the address set forth in the Contact Us section below.
We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice as the above-stated notification requirements may have changed. Please note that under Section 512(f) of the DMCA, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability.
