The exclusive jurisdiction and venue of any action to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights will be the state and federal courts located in the Southern District of New York and each of the parties hereto waives any objection to jurisdiction and venue in such courts.

Dispute Resolution

You and CGS agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof or the use of the CGS Services (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration, except that each party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents or other intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and CGS are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and CGS otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these Terms.

Arbitration Option

For any claim (excluding claims for injunctive or other equitable relief) where the total amount of the award sought is less than $10,000, the party requesting relief may elect to resolve the dispute in a cost effective manner through binding non-appearance-based arbitration. In the event a party elects arbitration, they shall initiate such arbitration through an established alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) provider mutually agreed upon by the parties. The ADR provider and the parties must comply with the following rules: (a) the arbitration shall be conducted by telephone, online and/or be solely based on written submissions, the specific manner shall be chosen by the party initiating the arbitration; (b) the arbitration shall not involve any personal appearance by the parties or witnesses unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties; and (c) any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator shall be final and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction.

General

The failure of CGS to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of CGS. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.

How Do We Use This Information?

Personal information we gather is for internal use only and we will not share or sell this information to anyone outside CGS (except to third party service providers to CGS who perform functions on our behalf necessary to maintenance of the Site; in such event, personal information will only be shared to the extent reasonably necessary for those providers to perform their functions and they will not be authorized to use it for any other function), unless you have consented, in advance, to such disclosure.

We may use your information to communicate with you about the Site and your account and Membership, to personalize your visit to our Website, and to enable us to review, develop and continually improve the products, services and offers we provide online.

We may also use your email address to send you emails regarding the products and services of third-party partners, sponsors and advertisers. You will have the option to opt out of receiving such emails.

2. Non-Personal Information

We use automated technical means to collect information about all website visitors.

When you visit the Site, we may place a “cookie,” a small computer file containing information about the user, on your computer to help us recognize and serve you better when you return. For instance, by setting a cookie on our Site, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our Site. A cookie is in no way linked to personally identifiable information. Once you close your browser, the cookie simply terminates. Cookies cannot be executed as code or used to deliver a virus. Other servers cannot read them and personal information cannot be gathered from them. If you do not wish cookies to be placed on your computer, then they can be disabled in your web browser. The option to do so is normally found in your browser’s “security settings” section. We may also use “Flash” cookies. These cookies can be managed with a tool found on Adobe’s web site. If you reject cookies, you may still use our Site. The only drawback to this is that you may be limited in some areas of our Site. Cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our Member to enhance the experience on our Site.

When you visit the Site, our server logs your IP address (unique network addresses), the time and duration of your visit, and the time and duration of the pages on our website you view. If you arrive at our website by clicking a paid advertisement (including a paid search engine result) or a link in an email, then we will capture information that tracks your visit from that link. If you arrive at the Site by clicking a non-paid source, such as link in a non-paid search engine result or an unsponsored link on another website, we may capture information that tracks your visit from that source, to the extent we are able to do so. We may also capture information about your computer system, such as your browser type and operating system.

A web beacon, also known as a web bug, is a small graphic (usually 1 pixel x 1 pixel), that is embedded in a web advertisement, email, or page on our web site, but is invisible to you. When you view a page on our web site or an email from us, your web browser will request the web beacon from a web server, which in turn will set a cookie in your web browser containing a unique identifier. This unique identifier will be linked to log information that is used to track your movements on our web site in order to determine the effectiveness of content.

We use non-personally identifiable information, such as IP address, to assess trends in the use of our Site, facilitate market research and statistical studies, develop content and functionality that helps us serve our Member’s needs, and improve the services we provide.

We may aggregate data or otherwise provide some non-personal information to others who help us understand how you use the Site. Such data will not be connected to any personally identifiable information.

3. Links to Other Websites

We may provide links to third-party websites for your convenience and information. The privacy practices of those sites may differ from CGS and are not controlled by CGS or covered by this Privacy Policy. We do not make any representations about third-party websites. We encourage you to review their privacy policies before submitting your personal information.

4. Security

We use industry best practices approaches concerning security measures to prevent the loss, misuse and alteration of the information in our possession. We use various security measures to protect the information we collect, as appropriate to the type of information, including encryption, firewalls, and access controls. We store information you provide to us on a computer system located in a controlled facility with limited access. Visitor textual information is encrypted during transmission, and our company databases are accessible only by CGS employees, contractors and agents on a need to know basis and who have entered into and are bound by a confidentiality and nondisclosure agreement with CGS.

To protect your privacy and security, you must keep your password confidential. However, even with such measures, no one is able to guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not be able to bypass these measures or otherwise capture information you provide over the Internet. By using the Site, you agree that CGS is not responsible if the storage equipment and services provided by others aren’t working like they are supposed to, and that you will have to seek any remedies from those providers, not CGS. As a reminder, CGS is also not responsible for anything you post on or share from this site.

5. Data Integrity

We will take reasonable steps to see that the personal information in our systems is relevant for its intended use, accurate, complete, and current.

6. Enforcement

CGS will conduct periodic reviews of compliance to verify that this Privacy Policy is accurate, comprehensive, prominently displayed, complete, implemented, and accessible. Any employee who violates this Privacy Policy may be subject to disciplinary action.

7. Inquiries or Complaints

If you feel that CGS is not abiding by this Privacy Policy, or have any other questions or complaints about this Privacy Policy or our information collection practices, please contact us at support@thecaregiverspace.org.

Such poster of allegedly infringing material may make a counter-notice pursuant to Sections 512(g)(2) and 512(g)(3) of the DMCA. A proper counter-notice sent to the Designated Copyright Agent must include the following:

  1. A physical or electronic signature of the Member.
  2. 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.
  3. A statement under penalty of perjury that the Member 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 Member’s name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that the Member consents to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the address is located, or if the Member’s address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which the service provider may be found, and that the Member will accept service of process from the person who provided notification under subsection (c)(1)(C) or an agent of such person.

Within not less than 10 days, but not more than 14 days of receipt of a proper counter-notice, CGS will reinstate the Content in question, unless we receive from the copyright holder who sent the original Notice a notification that such owner has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain the Member from engaging in infringing activity relating to the Content on the CGS Site.
