Avrio respects copyright law and expects its users to do the same. It is Avrio’s policy to terminate in appropriate circumstances account holders who repeatedly infringe the rights of copyright holders.
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA") provides a remedy 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 posted on the Avrio Service infringe your copyright, you may send Avrio a "Notification of Claimed Infringement" requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must comply with the DMCA and include the following information: (i) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the works that have been allegedly infringed; (ii) identification of the copyrighted work alleged to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the Avrio Service are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (iii) identification of the specific material alleged to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow Avrio to locate the material on the Avrio Service; (iv) your name, address, telephone number, and email address (if available); (v) 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 (vi) 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 Avrio’s Copyright Agent a counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent: (a) Your physical or electronic signature; (b) Identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled;(c) A statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content; and(d) Your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court in Boston, MA, and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.
If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, we may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that we may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or user, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored in 10 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at our sole discretion.
Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Avrio Service should be sent via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or via mail to: Avrio c/o FaceForward,, Inc.,401 Park Drive, Suite 812, Boston, MA 02215 Attn: Copyright Agent.

NEITHER AVRIO, ITS SUPPLIERS OR LICENSORS, NOR ANY OTHER PARTY INVOLVED IN CREATING, PRODUCING, OR DELIVERING THE AVRIO SERVICE WILL BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA OR GOODWILL, SERVICE INTERRUPTION, COMPUTER DAMAGE OR SYSTEM FAILURE OR THE COST OF SUBSTITUTE SERVICES ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OR FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE AVRIO SERVICE, WHETHER BASED ON WARRANTY, CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCT LIABILITY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, AND WHETHER OR NOT AVRIO HAS BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE, EVEN IF A LIMITED REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN IS FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
IN NO EVENT WILL AVRIO’S TOTAL LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THESE TERMS OR FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE AVRIO SERVICE EXCEED THE AMOUNTS YOU HAVE PAID TO AVRIO FOR USE OF THE AVRIO SERVICE OR ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($100) WHICHEVER IS LESS,
THE EXCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF DAMAGES SET FORTH ABOVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL ELEMENTS OF THE BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN AVRIO AND YOU.
You agree that any dispute between you and Avrio arising out of or relating to these Terms, the Avrio Service, or any other Avrio products or services (collectively, “Disputes”) will be governed by the arbitration procedure outlined below.
Governing Law: The Terms and the resolution of any Disputes shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Massachusetts without regard to its conflict of laws principles.
Informal Dispute Resolution: We want to address your concerns without needing a formal legal case. Before filing a claim against Avrio, you agree to try to resolve the Dispute informally by contacting email@example.com. We'll try to resolve the Dispute informally by contacting you through email. If a dispute is not resolved within 15 days after submission, you or Avrio may bring a formal proceeding.
We Both Agree To Arbitrate: You and Avrio agree to resolve any Disputes through final and binding arbitration, except as set forth under Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate below.
Opt-out of Agreement to Arbitrate: You can decline this agreement to arbitrate by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days of first accepting these Terms and stating that you (include your first and last name) decline this arbitration agreement.
Arbitration Procedures: The American Arbitration Association (AAA) will administer the arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes. The arbitration will be held in the United States county where you live or work, Cambridge, Massachusetts, or any other location we agree to.
Arbitration Fees: The AAA rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees. Avrio will pay all arbitration fees for claims less than $75,000. Avrio will not seek its attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous.
Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate: Either you or Avrio may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in Boston, MA or any United States county where you live or work. Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use or abuse of the Avrio products or Avrio Service, or infringement of intellectual property rights (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal dispute-resolution process described above.
Judicial Forum for Disputes: In the event that the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, you and Avrio agree that any judicial proceeding (other than small claims actions) will be brought in the federal or state courts of Boston, Massachusetts. Both you and Avrio consent to venue and personal jurisdiction there. We both agree to waive our right to a jury trial.
Limitation on Claims: Regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to your use of the Avrio products or Avrio Service must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose, or else that claim or cause of action will be barred forever.
Except as otherwise stated herein, these Terms constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between Avrio and you regarding the Avrio Service, and these Terms supersede and replace any and all prior oral or written understandings or agreements between Avrio and you regarding the Avrio Service and Avrio Content. If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
You may not assign or transfer these Terms, by operation of law or otherwise, without Avrio’s prior written consent. Any attempt by you to assign or transfer these Terms, without such consent, will be null. Avrio may freely assign or transfer these Terms without restriction. Subject to the foregoing, these Terms will bind and inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors and permitted assigns.
Any notices or other communications provided by Avrio under these Terms, including those regarding modifications to these Terms, will be given: (i) via email; or (ii) by posting to the Avrio Service. For notices made by e-mail, the date of receipt on the message will be deemed the date on which such notice is transmitted.
Avrio’s failure to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of such right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Avrio. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise.
Additional Terms May Apply
Additional terms may apply to certain products or services. In the event that there is a conflict between these Terms and any additional terms, the additional terms will control.
