These Terms may change over time, in which case we will post the modified Terms on this page and change the “Effective Date”. Your use of the Site following a change to these Terms signals your acceptance of the modification(s).

Copyright Infringement and DMCA Policy
Cynara expects users of the Site to respect the intellectual property rights of others. It is our policy to respond appropriately to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement, as set forth more fully below. In Cynara’s sole discretion, we may remove content that may be infringing on another person’s intellectual property rights with or without notice to the potential infringer. In accordance with the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and other applicable law, Cynara has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances, users who are deemed to be repeat infringers.
If you own a copyright in a work (or represent such a copyright owner) and believe that your (or such owner’s) copyright in that work has been infringed by an improper posting or distribution of it through the Site, then you may send us a written notice that must include all of the following:
- “DMCA Copyright Infringement Notice” in the heading or subject line.
- A description of the copyrighted work you believe to have been infringed.
- Identification of the material you believe to be infringing in a sufficiently precise manner to allow us to locate that material (e.g., a screenshot of the location where the material is located).
- Accurate and adequate information that we can use to contact you (including your full name, postal address, telephone number, and email address).
- A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.
- A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that all the information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner (or, if you are not the copyright owner, then your statement must indicate that you are authorized to act on the behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed).
- Your physical or electronic signature.
We will respond to notices of claimed copyright infringement in accordance with the DMCA.
Cynara will only respond to DMCA notices that it receives by mail or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is often difficult to determine if your copyright has been infringed. Cynara may elect to not respond to DMCA notices that do not substantially comply with all of the foregoing requirements, and we may elect to remove allegedly infringing material that comes to our attention via notices that do not substantially comply with the DMCA.
Please note that the DMCA provides that any person who knowingly materially misrepresents an infringement may be subject to liability.
We may send the information that you provide in your notice to the person who provided the allegedly infringing work. That person may elect to send us a DMCA counter-notification.
We may communicate with you electronically in regard to the Site, including by email. You agree that all notices, disclosures, agreements, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
You may cancel or modify our email marketing communications you receive from us by following the instructions contained within our promotional emails. This will not affect subsequent subscriptions. Please note that we reserve the right to send you certain communications relating to your use of our Site, such as administrative and service announcements, and these transactional account messages may be unaffected if you choose to opt-out from receiving our marketing communications.
The Site may be unavailable from time to time for any reason including, without limitation, routine maintenance. You understand and acknowledge that due to circumstances both within and outside of the control of Cynara, access to the Site may be interrupted, suspended, or terminated from time to time. Cynara shall have the right at any time to change or discontinue any aspect or feature of the Site.
If a dispute arises between you and Cynara, you and Cynara agree, as permitted by applicable law, to resolve any claim or controversy at law or equity arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with the Site through binding arbitration or as we and you otherwise agree in writing. Before resorting to these alternatives, we strongly encourage you to first contact us directly at email@example.com to seek a resolution. We will consider reasonable requests to resolve the dispute through alternative dispute resolution procedures, such as mediation or arbitration, as alternatives to litigation.
Certain portions of this section are deemed to be a “written agreement to arbitrate” pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act. You and Cynara agree that we intend that this section satisfies the “writing” requirement of the Federal Arbitration Act. This section can only be amended by mutual agreement.
If any controversy, allegation, or claim relates in any way to your use of the Site (collectively, “Dispute”), then you agree the Dispute shall be submitted to confidential arbitration in Delaware except that we may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court. You hereby consent to, and waive, all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction and forum non conveniens with respect to venue and jurisdiction in the state and federal courts of Delaware. Arbitration under these Terms shall be conducted pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules then prevailing at the American Arbitration Association; any dispute shall otherwise be governed by the internal laws of the State of Delaware without regard to Delaware choice of law principles, except that the provisions of this agreement concerning arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. The arbitrability of disputes shall be determined by the arbitrator. The arbitrator’s award shall be final and binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction.
If for any reason a claim proceeds to court rather than arbitration, you and Cynara agree to waive any right to a jury trial.
THE SITE, ITS CONTENT, AND ITS LINKS AND COMMUNICATIONS ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” BASIS AND ARE USED ONLY AT YOUR SOLE RISK, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMISSIBLE BY LAW. CYNARA DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES, REPRESENTATIONS, AND CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, OF ANY KIND, REGARDING THE SITE (INCLUDING ITS CONTENT, HARDWARE, SOFTWARE, AND LINKS), INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES AS TO FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, MERCHANTABILITY, TITLE, NONINFRINGEMENT, RESULTS, ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS, ACCESSIBILITY, COMPATIBILITY, SECURITY, AND FREEDOM FROM COMPUTER VIRUS. IF APPLICABLE LAW DOES NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE IMPLIED WARRANTIES TO APPLY TO YOU, THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS WILL APPLY TO YOU TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
Limitations on Liability and Remedies
CYNARA’S ENTIRE LIABILITY AND YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY WITH RESPECT TO ANY DISPUTE WITH CYNARA (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION YOUR USE OF THE SITE OR RECEIPT OF ANY COMMUNICATIONS) IS TO DISCONTINUE YOUR USE OF THE SITE. CYNARA AND ITS VENDORS SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGE ARISING FROM YOUR USE OF THE SITE, RECEIPT OF ANY COMMUNICATION, OR FOR ANY OTHER CLAIM RELATED IN ANY WAY TO YOUR USE OF THE SITE. THESE EXCLUSIONS FOR DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES INCLUDE, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, LOST DATA, LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE, COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, OR ANY OTHER COMMERCIAL DAMAGES OR LOSSES, EVEN IF CYNARA HAD BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY THEREOF AND REGARDLESS OF THE LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY UPON WHICH THE CLAIM IS BASED. BECAUSE SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, IN SUCH STATES OR JURISDICTIONS, CYNARA AND ITS VENDORS’ LIABILITY IN SUCH STATE OR JURISDICTION SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. IN ANY EVENT, IF ANY OF THE ABOVE PROVISIONS IN THIS SECTION ARE NOT ENFORCEABLE IN AN APPLICABLE JURISDICTION, THE MAXIMUM LIABILITY OF CYNARA WILL BE LIMITED TO, IN THE SOLE DISCRETION OF CYNARA ANY AMOUNT PAID TO CYNARA IN CONNECTION WITH THE CONTENT THAT UNDERLIE THE CLAIM.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Cynara from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages, losses, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs) arising out of or in connection with any of the following: (i) your breach or alleged breach of these Terms or any Additional Terms; (ii) your use of the Site; (iii) your violation of any laws, rules, regulations, codes, statutes, ordinances, or orders of any governmental or quasi-governmental authorities; (iv) your violation of the rights of any third party including any intellectual property, publicity, confidentiality, property, or privacy right; or (v) any misrepresentation made by you. Cynara reserves the right to assume, at your expense, the exclusive defense and control of any matter subject to indemnification by you. You agree to cooperate with Cynara’s defense of any claim. You will not in any event settle any claim without the prior written consent of Cynara.
Third-Party Sites and Other Information. The Site may contain, as a convenience to you, content, links, and other information submitted by third parties over whom Cynara has no control or responsibility, as well as translations thereof which Cynara may arrange. Cynara has no obligation to monitor, control, or restrict the use of the Site, or third-party websites or services accessible via links available as part of the Site. These other websites or services are not under Cynara’s control, and you acknowledge that, whether or not such websites or services are affiliated in any way with Cynara, Cynara is not responsible for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality, decency, or any other aspect of the content of such websites or services. The inclusion of such a link does not imply endorsement of any website or service by Cynara or any association with its operators.

We reserve the right to transfer any information we obtain through the Site in the event of a joint venture, partnership, merger, or other collaboration with another organization, or in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets (e.g., further to a reorganization, liquidation, or any other business transaction including negotiations of such transactions).
Severability; Interpretation; Assignment. If any provision of these Terms or any Additional Terms is for any reason deemed invalid, unlawful, void, or unenforceable, then that provision will be deemed severable from these Terms or any Additional Terms, and the invalidity of the provision will not affect the validity or enforceability of the remainder of these Terms or any Additional Terms. The summaries of provisions and Section headings are provided for convenience only and shall not limit the full Terms. Cynara may assign its rights and obligations under these Terms or any Additional Terms, in whole or in part, to any party at any time without any notice. These Terms and any Additional Terms may not be assigned by you, and you may not delegate your duties under them, without the prior written consent of an officer of Cynara.
Complete Agreement; No Waiver. These Terms and any Additional Terms reflect our complete agreement regarding the Site and supersede any prior agreements, representations, warranties, assurances, or discussion related to the Site. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms or any Additional Terms, (i) no failure or delay by Cynara in exercising any of the rights, powers, or remedies hereunder will operate as a waiver of that or any other right, power, or remedy, and (ii) no waiver or modification of any term of these Terms or any Additional Terms will be effective unless in writing and signed by Cynara.
Investigations; Cooperation with Law Enforcement. Cynara reserves the right to investigate and prosecute any suspected or actual violations of these Terms or any Additional Terms. Cynara may disclose any information as necessary or appropriate to satisfy any law, regulation, legal process, or government request.
International Issues. Cynara controls and operates the Site from its offices in the United States. If you use the Site from other locations, you are doing so on your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws regarding your online conduct and acceptable content if and to the extent local laws apply. We reserve the right to limit the availability of the Site and/or the provision of any content, program, product, service, or other feature described or available through the Site to any person, entity, geographic area, or jurisdiction at any time and in our sole discretion and to limit the quantities of any content, program, product, service, or other feature that we provide.
