We respect the intellectual property rights of others and require that the persons and entities using the Site do the same. In our sole discretion, we reserve the right to terminate the access to the Site of any person or entity whom we believe is or may be responsible for copyright infringement. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998, 17 U.S.C. § 512 (Ѱ䴡”) provides a mechanism for notifying service providers of claims of unauthorized use of copyrighted materials.

In accordance with the DMCA, we will respond promptly to claims of copyright infringement reported to our agent designated to receive notifications of infringement claims (“Designated Agent”). If you believe in good faith that Company should be notified of a possible online copyright infringement involving the Site, please submit a written notice to our Designated Agent that substantially includes the following:

  1. A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner;
  2. Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed;
  3. Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing and information reasonably sufficient to help us locate the material;
  4. Information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact you, such as a mailing address, telephone number, and email address;
  5. 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
  6. A statement that the information in the notice is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are the owner, or authorized to act on behalf of the owner, of the copyright or of an exclusive right under the copyright that is allegedly infringed.

The written notice, along with any accompanying items, must be submitted to our Designated Agent at:

Attention: General Counsel
Ĵý.
5433 Westheimer Rd., Suite 500, Houston, Texas 77056
Info@ies-co.com

If you send your notice by email, please make sure to write “DMCA Copyright Notice” in the subject line. We will investigate notices of copyright infringement and take appropriate actions under the DMCA. Inquiries that do not follow this procedure may not receive a response. Please do not send any other notices or communications to the Designated Agent, who is appointed solely for the purposes of receiving notices of copyright claims under the DMCA.

6. User Account and Acceptable Use Guidelines

Company wishes to provide high quality service to users of the Ĵý Customer Extranet Service (the “Service”) available through the Site by protecting the integrity, security, reliability, and privacy of the Service, the Site, and the network of computers using the Service. To that end, Company encourages the responsible, lawful use of the resources of Company and Company licensors.

To that end, before you can make use of certain services associated with the Site, including the Service, you may be required to register through the Site and create an account. You agree and warrant that all information you provide to us through the Site and Service, including but not limited to any contact information or registration information, is truthful, accurate, and up-to-date. You further agree to maintain the accuracy of your account information and to inform us promptly of any changes to your information, including but not limited to any changes to your email address.

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security you become aware of. We are neither responsible for, nor liable, for any loss or other injury that you may incur as a result of someone else using your user account or password, either with or without your knowledge.

You may not use the Site or Service to commit, or in connection with, criminal or civil violations of federal, state, local, or international laws, regulations, or other government requirements. Such violations include, but are not limited to, violations of securities laws, including, but not limited to, regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission or any securities exchange; theft or infringement of patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, or other types of intellectual property; fraud; forgery; theft or misappropriation of funds or information; encouraging conduct that would constitute a criminal offense or give rise to civil liability; and assisting or permitting any third parties engaged in or attempting to engage in any of the activities described above.

Company reserves the right to report any activity that may violate any law or regulation to appropriate law enforcement officials, regulators or other third parties. In order to cooperate with governmental requests into possible violations of laws or regulations, Company may access and disclose to law enforcement officials, regulators or other third parties any information Company considers necessary and appropriate.

Failure to adhere to these Terms may result in a demand by Company for immediate removal of offending material, immediate temporary or permanent filtering, blocked access, suspension or termination of your access to the Site or Service, or other action appropriate to the violation, as determined by Company in its sole discretion. When feasible and lawful, it is Company’s preference to give notice so that violations may be addressed voluntarily; Company reserves the right to act without notice, however, as Company may determine in its sole discretion. Company will cooperate with law enforcement agencies if unlawful activity is suspected. Users that fail to comply with this Section 5 are subject to civil or criminal liability under applicable law.

Company, in its sole discretion, may terminate you and your access to the Site or Service, or any portion thereof, without notice for any reason or for no reason, including, but not limited to, if Company believes that you have failed to comply with these Terms.

Not all of the products or services described on the Site are available in all jurisdictions or to all potential customers or investors.

9. Forward Looking Statements

The Site contains statements about future results that may constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Users are cautioned that these statements are not guarantees of future performance. There are a variety of factors, many of which are beyond Company’s control, which affect the operations, performance, business strategy and results and could cause its actual results to differ materially from the expectations and objectives expressed in any forward-looking statements. Accordingly, users are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements which speak only as of the date they are made. A non-exclusive list of the important factors that could cause actual events or results to differ materially from those in such forward-looking statements include the important factors set forth in Company’s most recent annual report on Form 10-K, quarterly report on Form 10-Q and Company’s other documents on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Company does not undertake to update forward-looking statements to reflect the impact of circumstances or events that arise after the date the forward-looking statements are made. Users should, however, consult any further disclosures Company may make in its future filings of its reports on Form 10-K, Form 10-Q and Form 8-K.
