After receiving a notification of alleged infringement, StageAgent will remove or disable access to the material claimed to be infringing or claimed to be the subject of infringing activity. At the same time, StageAgent will provide the provider of affected material with a copy of the notice. The provider of affected material may make a counter notification pursuant to sections 512(g)(2) and (3) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Please be advised that you may be held liable for damages if you make material misrepresentations pursuant to federal law in the counter notification. When we receive a counter notification, we may reinstate the material in question. To file a counter notification with us, the provider of affected material must provide a written communication (by postal mail, overnight mail, or, when digitally-signed, by email) that sets forth the items specified below. To expedite our ability to process your counter notification, please use the following format (including section numbers):
a. Identify the material that StageAgent has removed or to which StageAgent has disabled access and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled.
b. Provide your name, postal address, telephone number, email address, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in California Northern District (if your address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which StageAgent may be found), and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided the initial notification of infringement or an agent of such person.
c. Include the following statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that the removed material was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.”
d. Sign the paper or affix an electronic or digital signature to the communication in a form reasonably acceptable to StageAgent.org.
e. Send written communication to the following address:
P.O. Box 1296
Palo Alto, CA 94301
f. Send electronically- or digitally-signed communication to email@example.com. Upon receipt of a counter notification in substantial compliance with the DMCA, StageAgent will provide the person who provided the initial notification of claimed infringement with a copy of the counter notification promptly. After receipt of the counter notification, StageAgent will generally replace the removed material and cease disabling access to it, unless StageAgent’s designated agent first receives notice from the person who submitted the initial notification that such person has filed an action seeking a court order regarding the removed material.
StageAgent is generally unable to evaluate the merits of trademark disputes because trademark rights may be based on registration or common law use, exist only for certain categories of goods or services and may differ internationally. Therefore, StageAgent expects you to resolve trademark disputes directly with the individual rather than utilizing StageAgent as an intermediary.

In case you decide to sign up for a StageAgent for Schools Paid Teacher Account and to provide StageAgent with your payment account information, you hereby agree to the following payment terms and conditions:
StageAgent offers you the option of creating a Teacher Account which allows you to create a Teacher Profile, invite students to join your StageAgent Groups and access additional features. Each StageAgent Group may be accessed by 1 teacher and up to 50 students.
Teacher Account holders are required to pay a recurring yearly fee to utilize the Teacher Account which can either be paid by the individual or institution such as a school or school district. StageAgent accepts credit cards and checks. If you choose to pay by credit card, we will automatically charge your credit card before upgrading your account.
The fees for your Teacher Account will be billed from the date you create your Account and on each renewal thereafter unless and until you cancel your Teacher Account. If you elected to pay via credit card, StageAgent will automatically bill your credit card on the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your Teacher Account. You authorize StageAgent to renew your Teacher Account at the then-current rate until you cancel your membership. All fees and charges are pre-paid and nonrefundable, and there are no refunds or credits for partially used periods. If payment is not received from the credit card issuer, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand. You must provide current, complete and accurate billing and credit card information, and you agree to pay all costs of collection, including attorney’s fees and costs, on any outstanding balance. In certain instances, the issuer of the credit card may charge a foreign transaction fee or related charges, which you shall be responsible to pay.
You may cancel your Teacher Account at anytime on StageAgent.org through Account Settings or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Cancellation will be effective immediately. Your Teacher Account will continue in effect unless and until you cancel your Account or we terminate it. You must cancel your Teacher Account before it renews in order to avoid billing of the next period’s fees to your credit card. Should you elect to cancel your Teacher Account, please note that you will not be issued a refund for any previous payments.
