The Site together with any other products and services offered by Accrualify, are collectively referred to as the “Service”).

10.1 It is our policy to respond to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement. This Section explains the information that must be included in these notices, as required by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”). Upon receipt of a DMCA compliant notice, Accrualify will expeditiously remove or disable access to the content that is the subject of the notice. If you are a copyright owner or an authorized agent thereof, and you wish to file a notice of infringement with us, then you may submit a notice by providing Accrualify’ Designated Copyright Agent with the following information in writing (please consult your legal counsel or see 17 U.S.C. Section 512(c)(3) to confirm these requirements):
- 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 on the Service are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works on the Service.
- 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 Accrualify to locate the material.
- Information reasonably sufficient to permit Accrualify to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which you may be contacted.
- A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.
- 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.
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. If you are unsure whether the material available online infringes your copyright, we suggest that you contact an attorney before sending us a notice.
10.2 The administrator of an affected site or the provider of affected content may make a counter notification under Sections 512(g)(2) and (3) of the DMCA. If you elect to send us a counter notice, to be effective it must be a written communication that includes the following (please consult your legal counsel or See 17 U.S.C. Section 512(g)(3) to confirm these requirements):
- A physical or electronic signature of the subscriber.
- Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled.
- A statement under penalty of perjury that the subscriber has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.
- The subscriber’s name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that the subscriber consents to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the address is located, or if the subscriber’s address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which Accrualify may be found, and that the subscriber will accept service of process from the person who provided notification under subsection (c)(1)(C) or an agent of such person.
10.3 Accrualify’ Designated Copyright Agent to receive notifications and counter-notifications of claimed infringement can be reached as follows:
Legal Department Attn: DMCA
14 N San Mateo Drive
San Mateo, CA 94401
For clarity, only DMCA notices should go to the Designated Copyright Agent. Any other feedback, comments, requests for technical support or other communications should be directed to Accrualify customer service through email@example.com. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this section, your DMCA notice may not be valid.
Please note that under Section 512(f) of the Copyright Act, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability.
Please consult your legal counsel (or see 17 U.S.C. § 512) to confirm these requirements and your compliance therewith. It is Accrualify’s policy to respond to notices of alleged infringement that comply with the DMCA. In addition, Accrualify will promptly terminate without notice the accounts of users that are determined by Accrualify in its good faith belief to be “repeat infringers.” If Accrualify receives more than two valid takedown notices regarding a user’s Content, then that user will be considered a repeat infringer and their Accrualify Account will be terminated.
11 User Disagreements
11.1 Your use of the Service may bring you into contact with other users, and their User Content, such as through communications through the Shareowners’ Network or through other means. You are solely responsible for your involvement with other users. If you have a dispute with one or more users, you release Accrualify (and Accrualify’s officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees) from claims, demands and damages (including, but not limited to, actual, special, consequential and punitive) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with such disputes. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code §1542, which says: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”

You agree that Accrualify shall not be liable to you or any third-party for any such termination. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Accrualify may terminate access to the Service in cases of actual or suspected fraud, or violations of these Terms or other laws or regulations, and any suspected fraudulent, abusive, or illegal activity may be referred to appropriate law enforcement authorities. These remedies are in addition to any other remedies Accrualify may have at law or in equity.
12.4 Upon termination of these Terms, any provision or policy which, by its nature or express terms should survive, will survive such termination or expiration, including, but not limited to, Section 5.2, 7.2, 8.1, 9.2-9.9, 10, 11, 13-17, and 19-21.
13.1 You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Accrualify and its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates or any related companies, licensors and suppliers, and their respective directors, officers, employees, agents, representatives, and contractors, and other Accrualify users who use any User Content you upload to the Sites or other users, from all damages, injuries, liabilities, costs, fees and expenses (including, but not limited to, legal and accounting fees) arising from or in any way related to (i) your use or misuse of the Service (including your use or misuse of Third Party Content); (ii) your User Content; (iii) your breach or other violation of these Terms including any representations, warranties and covenants herein; (iv) your violation of the rights of any other person or entity, including, but not limited to claims that any User Content infringes or violates any third party intellectual property rights. Accrualify reserves the right, at your expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter for which you are required to indemnify us and you agree to cooperate with our defense of these claims. You may not settle any matter without the prior written consent from Accrualify. Accrualify will use reasonable efforts to notify you of any such claim, action or proceeding upon becoming aware of it.
14.1 THE SERVICE (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE SITE, ACCRUALIFY CONTENT, OR ANY OTHER SERVICE OR INFORMATION PROVIDED BY ACCRUALIFY), USER CONTENT, THIRD-PARTY CONTENT, AND ANY OTHER SOFTWARE, SERVICES OR APPLICATIONS MADE AVAILABLE IN CONJUNCTION WITH OR THROUGH THE SERVICE, ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS”, “AS AVAILABLE”, “WITH ALL FAULTS” BASIS WITHOUT REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IN TERMS OF CORRECTNESS, ACCURACY, RELIABILITY, OR OTHERWISE. Neither ACCRUALIFY. nor any third-party provider of information guarantees the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any content, nor its merchantability or fitness for any particular purpose.

ACCRUALIFY AND ITS AFFILIATES, PARTNERS, LICENSORS, AND SUPPLIERS DO NOT WARRANT THAT THE SERVICE OR ANY PART THEREOF, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE SITE, ACCRUALIFY CONTENT, OR USER CONTENT, WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, OR FREE OF ERRORS, VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL COMPONENTS AND DO NOT WARRANT THAT ANY OF THE FOREGOING WILL BE CORRECTED.

- Limitation of Liability
15.1 IN NO EVENT WILL ACCRUALIFY OR ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, LICENSORS OR SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE TO ANY PARTY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL OR OTHER CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE OR ACCESS OF OR INABILITY TO USE OR ACCESS THE SERVICE OR ITS CONTENT, INCLUDING USER OR THIRD PARTY CONTENT, OR ANY OTHER LINKED WEB SITE, APPLICATION, OR OTHER SERVICE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY LOST PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, OR OTHERWISE, WHETHER BASED IN TORT, CONTRACT OR OTHER LEGAL THEORY, EVEN IF ACCRUALIFY OR ITS LICENSORS OR SUPPLIERS IS EXPRESSLY ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. YOU FURTHER AGREE THAT THE TOTAL AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF ACCRUALIFY FOR ANY CLAIMS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THIRD-PARTY CLAIMS, LOSSES, OR DAMAGES ARISING UNDER THIS AGREEMENT SHALL NOT EXCEED ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS, EVEN IF ACCRUALIFY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH POTENTIAL CLAIM, LOSS, OR DAMAGE. THE FOREGOING LIMITATION OF LIABILTY AND EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN DAMAGES SHALL APPLY REGARDLESS OF THE SUCCESS OR EFFECTIVENESS OF OTHER REMEDIES.
- Limitations; Basis of the Bargain

IN SUCH CASES, YOU AGREE THAT BECAUSE SUCH WARRANTY DISCLAIMERS AND LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY REFLECT A REASONABLE AND FAIR ALLOCATION OF RISK BETWEEN YOU AND ACCRUALIFY, AND ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN YOU AND ACCRUALIFY, ACCRUALIFY’S LIABILITY WILL BE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT ACCRUALIFY WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO OFFER THE SERVICE TO YOU ON AN ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLE BASIS WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS.
- Dispute Resolution
17.1 We are committed to providing you a means of resolving disputes that arise between you and Accrualify quickly and cost effectively. Accordingly, you and Accrualify agree that we will resolve any claim or dispute that arises out of this Agreement or in connection with your use of the Service (a “Claim“) in accordance with one of the subsections below. As in many circumstances we are able to resolve disputes with users amicably, we strongly encourage you to first contact us directly to seek a resolution before escalating to one of the alternatives below. We will consider reasonable requests to resolve the dispute through alternative dispute resolution procedures, such as mediation or arbitration, as alternatives to litigation.
17.2 This Agreement shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the State of California as they apply to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within California between California residents, without regard to conflict of law provisions. You agree that any claim or dispute you may have against Accrualify must be resolved exclusively by a state or federal court located in the Northern District of California, except as described in the section pertaining to arbitration below. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the courts located within Northern District of California for the purpose of litigating all Claims that arise between you and Accrualify.
