We do not knowingly collect personal information from persons under the age of eighteen.

Web Site Usage Information

We automatically collect IP addresses and Web site usage information from you when you access any of our online services.

We may use information in the following ways:

Except as specifically set forth in this Privacy Policy, we will not share your personally identifiable information with any entity outside of Veriagent.

We may disclose and use personally identifiable information in special circumstances where it is necessary to enforce our service agreements or terms of use (for example to protect our intellectual property rights). We may also disclose or use your personal information when we, in good faith, believe that the law may require us to do so.

Cookies

Veriagent Security Policy

Veriagent is committed to maintaining high security standards to protect the data of all parties who interact with our information systems. No data transmission across the Internet or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Veriagent takes several measures to minimize any risk and to protect your data and your business. Currently 128 bit ssl encryption is utilised and all documentation uploaded is fully encrypted.

Encryption

Veriagent employs encryption technologies using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) from trusted vendors like Verisign and Thawte to encrypt sensitive data between and among you and our systems. Veriagent also uses strong proprietary encryption methodologies to store and maintain particularly sensitive personal or financial information.

Authentication

Veriagent recognizes how important our security best practices are to your business. Unlike many other websites, Veriagent chooses your password and assigns it to you. Thanks to our encryption methodologies, your Veriagent password cannot be viewed or discovered, even by our own staff. Other web sites may permit you to choose a password but may require special characters, formats, or numbers. Veriagentís password policy ensures that your password is strong and unique. Unlike other website passwords you may use, your Veriagentís password cannot be discovered from your personal data or activity on other web sites. While this authentication practice may at times seem cumbersome, it is in place to protect you, your data, and your business.

Infrastructure Technology

Veriagent chooses technologies, vendors, and partners that exhibit good security practices. Defense strategies are employed with inclusion-based rules and only permit known and acceptable activities from expected or trusted entities. Veriagent maintains reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with pertinent statutes to protect your sensitive information.

Aggressive Fraud Analysis

Veriagent automatically collects and interrogates the activities of all IP addresses that interact with Veriagent systems. Suspicious or fraudulent behaviour is dealt with immediately and directly using proprietary systems and procedures. In addition, clients must first register for their account before any functionality performed/published to the Marketplace and sold. These practices help us to maintain higher satisfaction rates and lower costs.

VERIAGENT DIGITAL MILLENNIUM COPYRIGHT ACT ("DMCA") AND TRADEMARK POLICY

DMCA POLICY

It is Veriagentís policy to comply in full with the requirements of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 ("DMCA"). Accordingly, if any Product, or Promotion (collectively the "Client Material") violates a valid copyright, Veriagent may remove or disable access to such Client Material upon receipt of a valid, complete DMCA complaint (a written notification called a "Takedown Notice").

Submitting a Takedown Notice:

Per the DMCA, if You believe that a valid copyright in which You have ownership rights is being infringed, Veriagent is authorized to remove or disable access to Client Material only if You provide a Takedown Notice to Veriagent's designated Copyright Agent which includes all of the following:

  1. The words "DMCA COMPLAINT - TAKEDOWN NOTICE" at the top of Your communication;
  2. A reasonably detailed description of the copyrighted work(s) or other intellectual property(s) You claim has/have been infringed;
  3. Identification of the specific Client Material that You believe infringes upon Your rights and sufficient information to enable Veriagent to locate the specific Client Material. The DMCA only authorizes Veriagent to remove or disable access to specific infringing Client Materials. We are not authorized to generally disable access to non-infringing Client Materials;
  4. The following statements or equivalent:
    1. "I swear, under penalty of perjury, that

(i) the information contained in this notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; and

(ii) I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials described above on the allegedly infringing web pages is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law."

  1. Your company name (if any), Your legal name (printed), Your mailing address, and Your phone number, and, if available, an electronic email address; and
  2. A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the right that is allegedly violated or infringed, and the present date.

To file a DMCA complaint with Veriagent, You must send a hardcopy communication via certified-mail to Veriagentís designated representative ("Copyright Agent") at the following address or email address:

Veriagent Legal Dept.
P O Box 724 Rivonia
2128 South Africa

Email: support@veriagent.com

Note: the submission of a false or materially misleading Takedown Notice may constitute perjury and other offenses and may subject You to potential liabilities. Prior to filing a Takedown Notice You may wish to first consult with an attorney.

Upon Veriagentís receipt of a valid, complete Takedown Notice, Veriagent shall (i) remove or disable access to the specific allegedly infringing Client Material identified in the Takedown Notice, and (ii) take reasonable steps to contact the Vendor or Affiliate providing such Client Material.

Submitting a Counter-Notice:

If Veriagent removes or disables access to Your Client Material as a result of a Takedown Notice, You may instruct Veriagent to restore Your Client Material by providing a counter-notification ("Counter-Notice") to the Veriagent Agent containing all of the following:

  1. Identification of the Client Material and the location at which Client Material appeared or was available before removal;
  2. A statement that You have a good faith belief that the Client Material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the Client Material;
  3. Your name, address, telephone number, email address, and a statement that You consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court in Boise, Idaho, and a statement that You will accept service of process from the third party who provided the Takedown Notice.
  4. Your physical or electronic signature;

Upon receipt of Your Counter-Notice, Veriagent shall send a copy of Your Counter-Notice to the original complaining party and inform such party that Veriagent shall replace or restore access to Your Client Material within no less than 10 but no more than 14 days unless Veriagent receives official notice from the complaining party that it has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain You from restoring the Client Material.

Repeat Offender Policy:

If You are the subject of two or more valid and complete Takedown Notices that You do not satisfactorily rebut with valid Counter-Notices, in addition to any other available rights and remedies, Veriagent reserves the right to terminate Your account(s), without penalty or liability to Veriagent. In addition, Veriagent may exercise all other rights and remedies available to it.

General:

Nothing contained herein shall restrict Veriagent's ability or right to remove or disable access to any Client Material which Veriagent independently discovers and which, in Veriagentís sole discretion, violates or infringes any right of any third party, including, without limitation, any IP Right.

TRADEMARK POLICY

You agree that, in the event Veriagent receives a written demand, such as a "Cease and Desist" letter ("Demand") alleging that any Product ("Client Material") infringes upon, dilutes, tarnishes or otherwise violates its trademark rights, Veriagent may in its sole discretion, remove or disable access to such Client Material until Veriagent receives either:

  1. Written confirmation from the party sending such Demand that the Demand is withdrawn or has been resolved, or
  2. You submit sufficient evidence to satisfactorily rebut the allegations contained in such Demand, the adequacy of such evidence to be determined by Veriagent in its sole discretion and which Veriagent may reject for any reason without penalty or liability to You.

    1. The information set forth above for a valid counter notice except such information shall relate to the trademark at issue and not disputed copyrighted material; and
    2. An express, irrevocable and binding obligation pursuant to which You shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless Veriagent from any damages, costs, or expenses that Veriagent may incur, in any manner whatsoever, arising out of or in connection with the disputed Client Materials and/or Veriagentís restoration thereof.

As a condition of registration with Veriagent, You acknowledge and agree that:

  1. Veriagent is not under any obligation to restore access to any Client Material even if You provide a rebuttal and that the determination of sufficiency of any evidence provided in a rebuttal shall be at Veriagentís sole discretion;
  2. You expressly waive and disclaim any claim or potential claim against Veriagent related to or arising out of Veriagentís removal of or disabling of access to any Client Material in response to a Demand, including without limitation any claim for lost revenue, lost profits and/or expenses. and,
  3. The procedures of the DMCA apply only to copyrighted materials and expressly exclude any other form of IP Right, including any rights in trademarks, service marks and/or trade names and that the foregoing process is intended only to provide a convenient mechanism for addressing such disputes and does not, and shall not be construed, as imposing upon Veriagent any of the obligations imposed under the DMCA with regard to response times or the like.
