Notice and Procedure for Making claims of Copyright Infringement

K-C does not permit copyright infringing activities and infringement of intellectual property rights on its Site, and we will remove all Content and User Submissions if properly notified that such Content or User Submission infringes on another's intellectual property rights. K-C reserves the right to remove Content and User Submissions without prior notice. We will also terminate a User's access to its Site, if they are determined to be a repeat infringer. A repeat infringer is a User who has been notified of infringing activity more than twice and/or has had a User Submission removed from the Site more than twice. K-C also reserves the right to decide whether Content or a User Submission is appropriate and complies with these Terms for violations other than copyright infringement and violations of intellectual property law, including but not limited to pornography, obscene or defamatory material, or excessive length. K-C may remove such User Submissions and/or terminate a User's access for uploading such material in violation of these Terms at any time, without prior notice and at its sole discretion.

KC respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users to do the same. As a result, if you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, you may submit a notification pursuant to Title 17, United States Code, Section 512(c)(2) by providing our Copyright Agent the following information:

  • an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest;
  • an identification or description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed;
  • an identification or description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Site;
  • your address, telephone number, and email address;
  • a 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;
  • a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your Notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner's behalf.

Please contact us to contact K-C's Copyright Agent for Notice of claims of copyright infringement on the Site.

Jurisdictional Issues

All applicable federal, state and local laws govern user access to the Site. The Site is controlled and operated by K-C in the U.S., and KC makes no representation that materials on the Site are appropriate or available for use outside of the U.S. Those who choose to access the Site from outside the U.S. do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with any applicable law. All information available on the Site is subject to U.S. export control laws and may also be subject to the laws of the country where you reside.

General

These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Wisconsin, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law. You agree that the Site shall be deemed a passive website that does not give rise to regional jurisdiction over K-C either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than Wisconsin, and that any action at law or in equity arising out of or relating to these terms shall be filed only in the state or federal courts located in Wisconsin, and you hereby consent and submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating any such action. If any provision of these terms shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

You and K-C also agree that any cause of action arising out of or related to the Site must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action accrues. Otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred.

This is the entire agreement between us relating to the subject matter herein and may be modified by K-C at any time.
