- Infringing Content; Digital Millennium Copyright Act
We reserve the right to remove any User Content that is alleged to infringe the copyright of a third party or otherwise violates any third-party rights and/or to suspend or terminate a User’s access privileges in the event of repeat infringement by a User.
If you are a copyright owner or authorized agent and believe that your work has been copied and posted on the Services in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, or if you believe that your rights have otherwise been violated by the Services, 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):

- (iii) if applicable, a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Site;
- (iv) your address, telephone number, and email address;
- (v) a written 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 or with regard to the rights violated; and

Our designated (“Copyright Agent”) to receive notifications of claimed infringement is JC Boice, who may be contacted by email at email@example.com or by mail at 365 Anchor Road, Suite 1133, Casselberry, FL 32707. If you believe that your User Content 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 material in your User Content, you may send a counter-notice pursuant to the DMCA containing the following information to the Copyright Agent:
- (i) your physical or electronic signature;
- (ii) identification of the User Content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the User Content appeared before it was removed or disabled;
- (iii) a statement that you have a good faith belief that the User Content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the User Content; and
- (iv) your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court in Nebraska, 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, NFA may, in its sole discretion, send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed User Content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the User Content provider, member or user, the removed User Content may be replaced, or access to it restored.

- Other Miscellaneous Terms.
Should any clause of this Agreement be found unenforceable, wherever possible this will not affect any other clause, and each will remain in full force and effect.

These scenarios include disclosure: (1) as required to provide products or services you’ve requested; (2) in order to provide partner-sponsored feature enhancements; (3) when necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our Terms and Conditions of Use, or as otherwise required by law; (4) on a temporary or permanent basis for the purposes of a joint venture, collaboration, financing, sale, merger, reorganization, change of legal form, dissolution or similar event (in the event we are acquired by or merge with another company, you will be notified before your information is transferred); (5) to protect the security or integrity of our business, including our databases and systems, and for business continuity reasons; (6) to our legal advisors who may need to manage or litigate a claim; and (7) for any other purpose when we have your permission.

NFANation’s website does not respond to “do not track” settings in browsers.
11. Messaging and Notifications
NFANation’s private messaging tools (“NFANation Messaging”) are available to NFANation subscribers. Messages may be between one sender and one or more recipients. NFANation Messaging enables users to have conversations with individual athletes and coaches
Once a message is deleted from the sender’s personal account, it is deleted from the recipient(s’) account(s) as well. Neither the recipient nor the sender is then able to see the message. Once the message is deleted, the action cannot be undone. Any information the sender submits through messaging, however, may be passed along by the recipient without the sender’s knowledge. This may occur by forwarding the notification email or text or capturing and forwarding a screenshot of the message(s) prior to deletion.
NFANation reserves the right, but is not obligated to, disclose any information if, in its sole opinion, NFANation suspects or has reason to suspect that the information involves a party who may be the victim of harassment in any form. Information may be disclosed to authorities that NFANation, in its sole discretion, deems appropriate to handle such disclosure. Appropriate authorities may include, without limitation, law enforcement agencies, child protection agencies, or court officials. Additionally, NFANation reserves the right to divulge the contents of a communication to an addressee or intended recipient of such communication. Given this, even if both the sender and recipient(s) deleted their message(s), conversation(s) directed at either party may be provided to the individual at either party’s request.
We may also use aggregated Messaging information for purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve NFANation’s products, services, and customer communications. NFANation will not share with any partners any information provided via Messaging, except on aggregate, unless explicitly approved by the user.
We reserve the right to access Messaging information when necessary to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, including suspected fraud, harassment, and threats to the safety of any person, as well as violations of our Terms and Conditions of Use, or as otherwise required by law.
12. Retention of Personal Information
13. Confidentiality and Security
14. Compliance with Privacy Laws
15. Grounds for Processing in the EU/EEA
If you are in the European Union and/or European Economic Area, to process your data lawfully we need to rely on one or more valid legal grounds. The grounds we may rely upon include: (1) your consent to particular processing activities. For example, where you have consented to us using your information for marketing purposes; (2) our legitimate interests as a business (except where your interests or fundamental rights override these). For example, it is within our legitimate interests to use your data to send you our electronic newsletter and product updates if you represent a corporate entity (unless you have unsubscribed); (3) our compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject.
