In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA"), Healthway Education Systems has a designated agent for receiving notices of copyright infringement and Healthway Education Systems follows the notice and take down procedures of the DMCA. If you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof and believe that any content on the Healthway Education Systems Website, including the Community, infringes upon your copyrights, you may submit a notification pursuant to the DMCA by providing our Designated 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 Healthway Education Systems to locate the material;
- Information reasonably sufficient to permit Healthway Education Systems to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an email address;
- 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.
If you are the content provider and you believe that your content that was removed or to which access was disabled is either not infringing, or you believe that you have the right to post and use such content from the copyright owner, the copyright owner's agent, or pursuant to the law, you must send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Designated 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, if available, e-mail address; and
- A statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts located in Texas and 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 Designated Agent, Healthway Education Systems 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, 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 Healthway Education Systems’ discretion.
Please send your notice of claims of copyright infringement or counter-notices to the following mailing or email address:

We may request additional information before we remove any infringing material. If a dispute develops as to the correct owner of the rights in question, we reserve the right to remove your content along with that of the alleged infringer pending resolution of the matter. Healthway Education Systems will provide you with notice if your materials have been removed based on a third party complaint of alleged infringement.
