Under the DMCA, you may be held liable for damages based on material misrepresentations in your Infringement Notice.

Sep. 14, 2015), available at https://www.courtlistener.com/opinion/2937139/stephanie-lenz-v-universal-music-corp/.) If you are not sure if content located on or linked to by the Service infringes your copyright, you should first contact an attorney.
The DMCA requires that all Infringement Notices must include the following:
a) A signature, electronic or physical, of the copyright owner or a person authorized to act on their behalf,
b) An identification of the copyright claimed to have been infringed;’
c) A description of the nature and location of the material that you claim to infringe your copyright, in sufficient detail to permit Puriya to find and positively identify that material;
d) Your name, address, telephone number, and email address; and
e) A statement by you: (i) that you believe in good faith that the use of the material that you claim to infringe your copyright is not authorized by law, or by the copyright owner or such owner's agent; and, (ii) under penalty of perjury, that all of the information contained in your Infringement Notice is accurate, and that you are either the copyright owner or a person authorized to act on their behalf.
Infringement Notices should be sent to email@example.com with the subject line "DMCA Notice: (INSERT YOUR NAME)".
Puriya will respond to all DMCA-compliant Infringement Notices, including, as required or appropriate, by removing the offending material or disabling all links to the offending material.

22. DISCLAIMERs; LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
Puriya, on behalf of itself and its licensors and suppliers, expressly disclaims any and all warranties, express or implied, regarding the Service or Puriya’s products, arising by operation of law or otherwise, including without limitation any and all implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement, no encumbrance, or title, in addition to any warranties arising from a course of dealing, usage, or trade practice. Neither Puriya nor its licensors or suppliers warrants that the Service or products will meet your requirements, or that the operation of the Service will be uninterrupted or error-free. Puriya disclaims all implied liability for damages arising out of the furnishing of the Service or products pursuant to this Agreement, including without limitation, mistakes, omissions, interruptions, delays, tortious conduct, errors, representations, or other defects arising out of the failure to the furnish the Service, whether caused by acts of commission or omission, or any other damage occurring. Puriya shall not be liable for any indirect, incidental, special, consequential, or punitive damages (including without limitation damages for lost profits or lost revenues), whether caused by the acts or omissions of Puriya, Company Parties, the products, or Puriya users, or their agents or representatives.
Your Responsibility for Loss or Damage
You agree that your use of the Service and Puriya’s products is at your sole risk. You will not hold Puriya or its licensors and suppliers, as applicable, responsible for any loss or damage that results from your access to and/or use of the Service or products. The Service may contain bugs, errors, problems, or other limitations.
Limitation of Liability
In no event shall Puriya or its licensors or suppliers be liable to you for any claims arising from your use of the Service or Puriya’s products, including without limitation for special, incidental, or consequential damages, lost profits, medical bills, lost data or confidential or other information, loss of privacy, costs of procurement of substitute goods or services, failure to meet any duty including without limitation of good faith or of reasonable care, negligence, or otherwise, regardless of the foreseeability of those damages or of any advice or notice given to Puriya or its licensors and suppliers arising out of or in connection with your use of the Service or products. This limitation shall apply regardless of whether the damages arise out of breach of contract, tort, or any other legal theory or form of action. In no event will Puriya’s total cumulative liability to you, from all causes of action of any kind, exceed the total cost of the products you purchased from Puriya. You agree that this limitation of liability represents a reasonable allocation of risk and is a fundamental element of the basis of the bargain between Puriya and you. The Service and products would not be provided without such limitations.
Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions, our liability shall be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.
Application of Disclaimers
The above disclaimers, waivers, and limitations do not in any way limit any other disclaimer of warranties or any other limitation of liability in any other agreement between you and Puriya or between you and any of Puriya’s licensors and suppliers. Some jurisdictions may not allow the exclusion of certain implied warranties or the limitation of certain damages, so some of the above disclaimers, waivers, and limitations of liability may not apply to you. Puriya’s licensors and suppliers are intended third-party beneficiaries of these disclaimers, waivers, and limitations. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you through the Service, products, or otherwise shall alter any of the disclaimers or limitations stated in this section.
Without limiting any indemnification provision of this Agreement, you (the "Indemnitor") agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Puriya and the Company Parties (collectively, the "Indemnitees") from and against any and all claims, actions, demands, causes of action, and other proceedings (individually, "Claim", and collectively, "Claims"), including but not limited to legal costs and fees, and providing sole and exclusive control of the defense of any action to Puriya, including the choice of legal counsel and all related settlement negotiations, arising out of or relating to: (i) the relationship between you and Puriya, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory; (ii) your breach of this Agreement, including without limitation any representation or warranty contained in this Agreement; (iii) your access to or use of the Service or Products; (iv) your provision to Puriya or any of the Indemnitees of information or other data; (v) your violation or alleged violation of any foreign or domestic, international, federal, state, or local law or regulation; (v) your violations of Section 19 regarding prohibited uses of the Service and other prohibited conduct; or (vii) your violation or alleged violation of any third party's copyrights, trademarks, or other intellectual property or proprietary rights.
The Indemnitees each have the individual right, but not the obligation, to participate through counsel of their choice in any defense by you of any Claim as to which you are required to defend, indemnify, or hold harmless any, each, and/or all Indemnitees. You may not settle any Claim without the prior written consent of the concerned Company Parties.
Without limiting any other provision of this Agreement, Puriya reserves the right to, in Puriya’s sole discretion and without notice or liability, deny use of the Service to any person for any reason or for no reason at all, including without limitation for any breach or suspected breach of any representation, warranty, or covenant contained in this Agreement, or of any applicable law or regulation. This Agreement shall automatically terminate if you breach any of this Agreement's representations, warranties, or covenants. Such termination shall be automatic and shall not require any action by Puriya.
You may terminate this Agreement and your rights under it at any time, for any or no reason at all, by providing to Puriya notice of your intention to do so, in the manner required by Section 26.
Effect of Termination
Any termination of this Agreement automatically terminates all rights and licenses granted to you under this Agreement, including all rights to use the Service. Upon termination, Puriya may, but has no obligation to, in Puriya’s sole discretion, rescind any services and/or delete from Puriya’s systems all your Personal Information and any other files or information that you made available to Puriya or that otherwise relate to your use of the Service. Upon termination, you shall cease any use of the Service.
After termination, Puriya reserves the right to exercise whatever means it deems necessary to prevent your unauthorized use of the Service, including without limitation technological barriers such as IP blocking and direct contact with your Internet Service Provider.
Upon termination, all rights and obligations created by this Agreement will terminate, except that the following Sections will survive any termination of this Agreement: Sections 1 through 4, all outstanding payment obligations in Section 6, Section 9, and Sections 15 through 27.
25. DISPUTE RESOLUTION
If you and Puriya or any of the Company Parties (collectively for purposes of this Section, “Puriya”) cannot resolve a dispute or other Claim through negotiations, either party may elect to have the dispute or Claim finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration. Any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other(s).
You acknowledge that without this provision, you would have the right to sue in court with a jury trial or to participate in a class action.
The language in this Agreement shall be interpreted in accordance with its fair meaning and not strictly for or against either party. The arbitration shall be commenced and conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Agreement, available at the AAA website www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. Except as otherwise provided for in this Agreement, Puriya will pay the AAA filing, administration, and arbitrator fees. If, however, the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then you will pay the arbitrator fees, in addition to any amount that exceeds the filing fees. In that case, you also agree to reimburse Puriya for all payments disbursed that are your obligation to reimburse under the AAA Rules. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to resolve, except that issues relating to the enforceability of the arbitration provision are for a Court of Competent Jurisdiction to resolve. The arbitration will take place in Los Angeles, California, but may be conducted in person, through document submission, through telephone, or online. The arbitrator will issue a decision in writing, but need only provide a statement of reasons if requested by a party. The arbitrator must follow applicable law, and any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to do so. Puriya may litigate to compel arbitration in court, to stay proceedings pending arbitration, or to modify, confirm, vacate, or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator. The arbitrator shall award costs to the prevailing party (including, without limitation, fees, expenses, and reasonable attorneys' fees) at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party, within 14 days of the arbitrator's ruling on the merits.
Restrictions Against Joinder of Claims
You and Puriya agree that any arbitration shall be limited to each Claim individually. You and Puriya agree that each may only bring claims against the other in your or Puriya’s individual capacity and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding.
If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable in a Court of Competent Jurisdiction, the Claim will still be finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration upon the election of either party, and any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other(s). In addition: (1) no arbitration shall be joined with any other arbitration, and (2) there is no right for any Claim to be arbitrated on a class-action basis or to employ class action procedures, and (3) there is no right of authority for any dispute to be brought in a purported representative capacity on behalf either of the general public or any other individuals.
Remedies in Aid of Arbitration; Equitable Relief
This agreement to arbitrate will not preclude you or Puriya from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration, including without limitation orders to stay a court action, compel arbitration, or confirm an arbitral award, from a Court of Competent Jurisdiction. Furthermore, this agreement to arbitrate will not preclude you or Puriya from applying to a Court of Competent Jurisdiction for a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, or other interim or conservatory relief, as necessary. "Court of Competent Jurisdiction" means any federal or state court: (1) that has jurisdiction over the subject matter; and (2) that is located in Los Angeles, California.
Venue for any Judicial Proceeding
This Agreement, including without limitation this Agreement's interpretation, shall be treated as though this Agreement were executed and performed in California, and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of California without regard to its conflict of law principles. The language in this Agreement shall be interpreted in accordance with its fair meaning and not strictly for or against either party.
The proper venue for any judicial action arising out of, relating to, or in connection with this Agreement will be the state and federal courts located in or nearest to Los Angeles, California. The parties stipulate to, and agree to waive any objection to, the personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts, and further expressly submit to extraterritorial service of process.
All notices required or permitted to be given under this Agreement must be in writing. Puriya shall give any notice by email sent to the most recent email address, if any, provided by the intended recipient to Puriya. You agree that any notice received from Puriya electronically satisfies any legal requirement that such notice be in writing. You bear the sole responsibility of ensuring that your email address on file with Puriya is accurate and current, and notice to you shall be deemed effective upon the sending by Puriya of an email to that address. You shall give any notice to Puriya by submitting said notice to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between Puriya and you concerning your use of the Service, superseding any prior or contemporaneous agreements, communications and proposals, whether oral or written, between you and us (including, but not limited to, any prior versions of the Terms of Service).
Partial Invalidity. Should any part of this Agreement be declared invalid, void, or unenforceable by a Court of Competent Jurisdiction, such decision shall not affect the validity of any remaining portion of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect, and the parties acknowledge and agree that they would have executed the remaining portion without including the part so declared by a Court of Competent Jurisdiction to be invalid, void, or unenforceable.
Amendments. This Agreement may only be modified by a written amendment signed by an authorized executive of Puriya, or by the unilateral amendment of this Agreement by Puriya along with the posting by Puriya of that amended version.
No Waiver. A waiver by either party of any term or condition of this Agreement, or any breach, in any one instance, will not waive that term or condition or any later breach.
Assignment. This Agreement and all of your rights and obligations under it will not be assignable or transferable by you without the prior written consent of Puriya. This Agreement will be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors, and permitted assigns.
Independent Contractors. You and Puriya are independent contractors, and no agency, partnership, joint venture, or employee-employer relationship is intended or created by this Agreement.
No Third Party Beneficiaries. There are no third-party beneficiaries to this Agreement, with the following exceptions: the Company Parties, Indemnitees, and Puriya’s licensors and suppliers (to the extent expressly stated in this Agreement).
Injunctive Relief. You acknowledge and agree that any actual or threatened breach of this Agreement or infringement of proprietary or other third-party rights by you would cause irreparable injury to Puriya and Puriya’s licensors and suppliers and would therefore entitle Puriya or Puriya’s licensors or suppliers, as the case may be, to injunctive relief.
