We expect users of the Services to respect the intellectual property rights of others. It is our policy to respond appropriately to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement.

In accordance with the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and other applicable law, Claire’s has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances, the accounts of users who are deemed to be repeat infringers.

If you own a copyright in a work (or represent such a copyright owner) and believe that your (or such owner’s) copyright in that work has been infringed by an improper posting or distribution of it through the Services, then you may send us a written notice that must include all of the following:

  • “DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice” in the heading or subject line.
  • A description of the copyrighted work you believe to have been infringed.
  • Identification of the material you believe to be infringing in a sufficiently precise manner to allow us to locate that material (e.g., a screenshot of the location where the material is located or a URL).
  • Accurate and adequate information that we can use to contact you (including your full name, postal address, telephone number, and email address).
  • A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.
  • A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that all the information in your notice is accurate, and that you are the copyright owner (or, if you are not the copyright owner, then your statement must indicate that you are authorized to act on the behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed).
  • Your physical or electronic signature.

We will respond to notices of claimed copyright infringement in accordance with the DMCA. Our agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement for the Services can be reached at:

Please note that the DMCA provides that any person who knowingly materially misrepresents an infringement may be subject to liability. We may send the information that you provide in your notice to the person who provided the allegedly infringing work. That person may elect to send us a DMCA counter-notification.

 

  1. 16. SWEEPSTAKES, CONTESTS, AND PROMOTIONS

Any sweepstakes, contests, or other promotions (any, a “Promotion”) that may be offered via the Services may be governed by Additional Terms that may have rules such as eligibility requirements, including certain age or geographic area restrictions, terms and conditions governing the Promotion, use of User-Generated Content, and disclosures about how your personal information may be used. It is your responsibility to read these Additional Terms to confirm that you are eligible to participate, register, and/or enter, the Promotion. By participating in a Promotion, you will be subject to the applicable Additional Terms and you agree to comply with and abide by rules and the decisions of the identified sponsor(s).

Prohibited US States/Countries. You acknowledge that various rules, regulations and laws addressing sweepstakes, contests, and tournaments with entry fees and/or prizes govern your participation in Competitions (“Gaming Laws”), and that Gaming Laws are set up by each individual U.S. state, country, territory, or jurisdiction. It is your responsibility to determine whether the state, country, territory or jurisdiction in which you are located is a prohibited jurisdiction. Claire’s and Roblox reserve the right (but have no obligation) to monitor the location from which you access Services, and on behalf of our developer partners, we may block access from any prohibited jurisdiction.

Additional Laws. In addition to Gaming Laws, you are also subject to all municipal, state and federal laws, rules and regulations of the city, state and country in which you reside and from which you access and use Services, including without limitation U.S. export laws (together with Gaming Laws, the “Applicable Laws”). You are solely responsible for your compliance with all Applicable Laws. Access to the Services may not be legal for some or all residents of, or persons present in, certain jurisdictions.

  1. 18. ARBITRATION, CLASS ACTION WAIVER AND DISPUTE TERMS

If a dispute arises between you and Claire’s, you and Claire’s agree, as permitted by applicable law, to resolve any claim or controversy at law or equity arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with the Services through binding arbitration or as we and you otherwise agree in writing. Before resorting to these alternatives, we strongly encourage you to first contact us directly at [email protected] to seek a resolution. We will consider reasonable requests to resolve the dispute through alternative dispute resolution procedures, such as mediation or arbitration, as alternatives to litigation.

 

Certain portions of this section are deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and Claire’s agree that we intend that this section satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act. This section can only be amended by mutual agreement.

 

If any controversy, allegation, or claim relates in any way to your use of the Services (collectively, “Dispute”), then you agree the Dispute shall be submitted to confidential arbitration in Illinois except that we may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court. You hereby consent to, and waive, all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction and forum non conveniens with respect to venue and jurisdiction in the state and federal courts of Illinois. Arbitration under these Terms shall be conducted pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules then prevailing at the American Arbitration Association; any dispute shall otherwise be governed by the internal laws of the State of Illinois without regard to Illinois choice of law principles, except that the provisions of this agreement concerning arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. The arbitrability of disputes shall be determined by the arbitrator. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.

 

YOU AND CLAIRE’S BOTH AGREE TO GIVE UP THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL. YOU AND CLAIRE’S AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, COLLECTIVE, OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Unless you and Claire’s agree, no arbitrator or judge may consolidate more than one person’s claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding, consolidated action or private attorney general action.

 

ANY DISPUTE YOU HAVE MUST BE COMMENCED WITHIN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE DATE OF THE DISPUTE.
