Copyright Infringement Claims
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “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 available through the Online Services infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send to 24 Hour Fitness a written notice by mail, e-mail or fax, requesting that 24 Hour Fitness remove such material or block access to it. If you believe in good faith that someone has wrongly submitted to us a notice of copyright infringement involving content that you made available through the Online Services, the DMCA permits you to send to 24 Hour Fitness a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA (see www.copyright.gov for details), which, with respect to notices of alleged infringement, currently include, among other requirements, the following:
- A description of the copyrighted work that you allege is being infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works;
- A description of the allegedly infringing material and information sufficient to permit us to locate the material;
- Information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact you, such as an address, telephone number and, if available, an electronic mail address;
- A statement by you 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 by you that the information in the notification is accurate and that you have the authority to enforce the copyrights that are claimed to be infringed.
Notices and counter-notices must be sent in writing to our DMCA agent as follows:
NAME: K. Griffin, 24 Hour Fitness DMCA Agent
ADDRESS: 12647 Alcosta Blvd, 5th Floor, San Ramon, CA 94583
You can also reach our DMCA agent at the following phone number: (925) 543-3100.
