4. Actions by Poolside.  Poolside may take the following actions to ensure that the Site Rules contained herein are properly enforced:

  • Poolside reserves the right to use any User Content (including the content of messages or materials sent through or to the Site or Poolside, if applicable) to prevent potentially illegal or tortious activities, or any other activities that are detrimental to other users. Poolside reserves the right to use a variety of methods to detect and block the above anomalous activity and to screen User Content to prevent abuse such as spam or fraud. However, such detection methods are not perfect and false positives may occur. If you use the Site, you agree to Poolside enforcing the above rules or attempting to prevent spam, fraud, or other anomalous activity. Such measures may result in a temporary or permanent suspension or termination of your account, of your access to Poolside’s message relay, or of your use of any other functions of the Site, with or without notice. Poolside shall not be responsible or liable for any such suspension or termination, including any consequences thereof.

  • Poolside further reserves the right to conduct investigations to determine whether you are perpetrating a scam, spamming Poolside or its users, or otherwise conducting fraudulent activity on Poolside by various means, including but not limited to investigating your functionality by setting up profiles and names that belong to Poolside. Poolside reserves the right to turn over any information gathered via such investigations to the police or other third party if Poolside has a good faith belief that you are using the Site in violation of these terms.

  • Poolside reserves the right to terminate any user for non-compliance with the Site Rules as set forth in the Terms. 


5. Claims of Infringement.  The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (“DMCA“) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by Poolside infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send us a notice requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information as required by 17 USC. § 512(c)(3)(A): (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow Poolside to locate the material on the site; (d) the name, address, telephone number, and email address (if available) of the complaining party; (e) a statement that the complaining party has 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 (f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

  • If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send Poolside a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA (see http://www.loc.gov/copyright/) for details. Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Site should be sent in writing to Poolside Copyright Notice, 222 W Merchandise Mart Plaza, Suite 575, Chicago IL 60605, or to team@poolside.co. We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice. Also, be aware that there are penalties for false claims under the DMCA.
