Digital Millennium Copyright Act
A. If you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof and believe that any Submission or other content infringes upon your copyrights, you may submit a notification pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") by providing our Copyright Agent with the following information in writing (see 17 U.S.C 512(c)(3) for further detail):
• 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 online site 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 the service provider to locate the material;
• Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail;
• 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; 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.
X PRIZE's designated Copyright Agent to receive notifications of claimed infringement is: Paul Cusack, email: firstname.lastname@example.org. For clarity, only DMCA notices should go to the Copyright Agent; any other feedback, comments, requests for technical support, and other communications should be directed to X PRIZE customer service through the contact form. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this Section 5(D), your DMCA notice may not be valid.
B. Counter-Notice. If you believe that your Submission that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner's agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the content in your Submission, you may send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent:
• Your physical or electronic signature;
• Identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled;
• A statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content; and
• Your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court in Los Angeles, California, and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.
If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, X PRIZE may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or user, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at X PRIZE's sole discretion.

1. OUR COMMITMENT TO YOUR PRIVACY
2. INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE
2.1 What Information We Collect
Our website has been designed to meet your needs. As is standard practice on many corporate websites, X PRIZE’s website utilizes cookies to gather technical information. A cookie is a small data file installed on your computer hard drive by a web server. Generally speaking, it records data about your computer's navigation within our website (pages viewed, date and time of your visit, etc.), which are read during subsequent visits. Cookies provide websites with information regarding the state your browser is in. For example, if you have visited the site before (a state of “this browser has visited this site before”), you will not have to fill out a X PRIZE registration form again during subsequent visits in order to benefit from our personalized services. Our website may also use the servers of our advertising partners to display the advertisements seen on our website pages. These partners may also utilize cookies to help target the advertisements shown towards your needs.
Please note that if your internet browser is configured to not accept cookies, we cannot guarantee that the services available to you on our website will work correctly.
2.2 How We Use This Information
Your personally identifiable information may be shared with and stored on a database controlled by third parties that have been hired by us to provide limited services on our behalf. Agents or contractors of X PRIZE who have access to your personally identifiable information are required to use their best efforts to keep the information confidential and are prohibited from using this information for any purpose not previously disclosed to you.
We use personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information for site administration and for the purpose of performing the services for which such data was collected.
We do not sell or rent your personally identifiable information to third parties, unless disclosure is required by law or to protect our interests. At times, X PRIZE may be required by law or litigation to disclose your personal information; this includes special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with X PRIZE’s rights. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary.
We use your IP address, resolution settings, browser information, platform type, and originating URLs to help diagnose problems with our server, measure usage, and to administer the site.
You agree that any commentary on our products or services that you provide to us belongs to us and can be used and published by us for any purpose, so long as we do not identify you as the source or author of such commentary without your consent.
3. UPDATING OR CORRECTING YOUR INFORMATION
If you provide us with personally identifiable information to have us perform ongoing services to you, we will use reasonable diligence to provide you with a way to review the information we have on file and either update or correct this information.
4. CHILDREN'S PRIVACY PROTECTION
We do not wish to obtain personally identifiable information from children who are using our site unsupervised. Thus, we ask children to obtain the consent of their parent or guardian before providing us with any personally identifiable information.
5. SECURITY PRECAUTIONS
Your privacy is very important to us. We use security technology and security procedures that are reasonably designed to help maintain the privacy of your personal information. Among other techniques, we usually store such information on a computer behind our "firewall" in a secure location, and we often restrict the number of employees internally who can access this data. Of course, there is no such thing as "perfect security" on the Internet and we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online. Further, please note that our web servers may be run by a third party web host whose actions we do not control.
