You acknowledge that if You fail to comply with all of the requirements of this Section, Your DMCA notice may not be valid.
*Please note that the above procedure is exclusively for notifying Electronic Team and its affiliates that Your copyrighted material may have been infringed.
22.3 Counter-Notice. If You believe that Your User Content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that You have authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner's agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and/or use the material in Your User Content, You may send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent:
- Identification of the User 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;
- A statement that You have a good faith belief that the User Content was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or a misidentification of the Content;
- A statement that You consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal court in the City of Alexandria, Virginia, and a statement that You will ACCEPT service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement;
- Your name, address, telephone number, and email address; and
- Your physical or electronic signature.
If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, Electronic Team may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed User Content or cease disabling it in ten (10) business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the User Content provider, member, or User, Electronic Team must replace or restore access to the removed content within 10 to 14 business days upon receipt of the counter-notice.
22.4 Trademark Infringement Notice. Electronic Team recognizes the importance of trademarks and takes allegations of trademark infringement very seriously. If You are the trademark owner (or the authorized representative of the owner), You can report a claim of trademark infringement to Electronic Team at email@example.com. While Electronic Team does not adjudicate disputes between parties in connection with trademark infringement or any other matter, Electronic Team will make a good faith effort to address Your concerns, including (in some instances) removing the infringing content or disabling access to the infringing content. However, in order to be assured that the claimed content is indeed infringing, Electronic Team may require proof from You, such as, for example, trademark registration or a court order finding trademark infringement. Some Services or products on the Website are created and operated by third-party developers or service providers. As such, Electronic Team does not have the ability to control the content made available through these applications or services. If You believe Your trademark has been infringed by a third-party service provider and not Electronic Team, You should contact the third party directly with Your concerns.
If HelpWire Website, Account, and/or Services are not available for any period or any time, Electronic Team shall not be liable. Electronic Team gives no warranties as to the accessibility, performance, or availability of its Website, Account, or Services. Temporary suspension of access to the Website, Account, or Services may occur without notice at Electronic Team’s sole discretion including, without limitation, in the case of repair, maintenance, system failure, or for reasons beyond Electronic Team’s control. Electronic Team reserves the right to suspend the operation of HelpWire, Website, Accounts, or Services but will only do so on a good faith basis. You AGREE that neither Electronic Team nor its third-party providers will be liable to You in any way for the termination, suspension, interruption, or delay of Your Services, Products, or access to the HelpWire Website, Account, and/or Services.
You hereby AGREE to indemnify and hold harmless Electronic Team, its affiliates, officers, directors, agents, and employees, from any expense, loss, claim, damage, fine, penalty, or liability, which includes reasonable attorney fees and other professionals’ costs, which are payable under any judgment, verdict, court order or settlement, to the extent resulting from any claim, demand, action, suit, arbitration, or other proceeding initiated by any third party, including the assessment, claim or demand by a governmental agency or entity, arising out of User Content or Your breach of any representation, warranty, obligation, or covenant of these Terms of Service, or any products or Services purchased or obtained by You in connection with the HelpWire Website and/or Accounts.
Electronic Team retains the exclusive right to compromise, pay, and settle, without Your consent, any and all claims or causes of action that are brought against Electronic Team. Electronic Team also reserves the right, at Your expense, to assume the exclusive control or defense of any matter for which You are required to indemnify Electronic Team and You AGREE to cooperate with the defense of these claims. You AGREE not to settle any matter in which Electronic Team is named as a defendant and/or for which You have indemnity obligations under Section 24, hereof, without Electronic Team’s prior written Consent. Electronic Team will use all reasonable efforts to communicate with and notify You of any such action, claim, or other proceeding in an acceptable and timely manner.
Electronic Team may assign or delegate these Terms of Service, in whole or in part, to any person or entity at any time with or without Your consent. You, however, may not assign or delegate any rights or obligations under these Terms of Service without Electronic Team’s prior written consent, and any unauthorized assignment and delegation by You shall be void and ineffective.
All transactions with or through the Website or Services shall, unless initiated otherwise at Electronic Team’s option, be conducted and executed electronically. Electronic Team may keep records of any type of communication conducted via the Website, Account, or Services. You AGREE to receive and send electronic communications with Electronic Team, which shall include all agreements, disclosures, and notifications. All electronic records are deemed sent when they are properly addressed to the recipient and the record enters an information processing system outside the control of the sender or the record enters a region of an information processing system under the recipient's control. All electronic records are received when the record enters an information processing system that the recipient has designated or uses for the purpose of receiving electronic records or information of the type sent, in a form capable of being processed by that system, and from which the recipient is able to retrieve the electronic record.
27.1 Injunctive Relief. You acknowledge and AGREE that any violation or breach of these Terms of Service may cause Electronic Team immediate and irreparable harm and damage. As a result, Electronic Team has the right to, and may in its sole discretion, immediately obtain preliminary injunctive relief (including, without limitation, temporary restraining orders) and seek permanent injunctive relief against You regarding any violation or breach of these Terms of Service. In addition to any and all other remedies available to Electronic Team in law or in equity, Electronic Team may seek specific performance of any term in these Terms of Service.
27.2 Force Majeure. With the exception of payment obligations, neither You nor Electronic Team will be liable for the failure to abide by or to perform an obligation under these Terms of Service, to the extent that such failure is caused by a force majeure event. A force majeure event includes acts of God, action by a governmental entity, civil disturbances, loss of electricity and/or telecommunications, natural disasters, strikes, terrorism, war, or any other such extreme event beyond the reasonable control of either You or Electronic Team.
27.3 Severability. These Terms of Service will be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law. If for any reason any provision of these Terms of Service is held to be invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, then (i) such provision will be interpreted, construed, or reformed to the extent necessary to render the same outcome as attempted in the original writing (or as close thereto as possible); and (ii) such invalidity or unenforceability will not affect any other provision of these Terms of Service. However, if any material limitation or restriction is deemed illegal, invalid, or otherwise unenforceable in regard to the User’s License (as outlined in Section 4, above), the License will immediately terminate.
27.4 Waiver; Terms of Service Rights. In the case Electronic Team or You waive any breach or rights under these Terms of Service, this waiver will affect only that particular situation and will not waive any other future breach or rights. Additionally, the failure of Electronic Team to enforce these Terms of Service under strict performance will not be construed as a waiver of Electronic Team’s rights and remedies, herein, nor shall the particular failure to enforce said situation stand as precedent that Electronic Team does not enforce these Terms of Service under strict performance. Electronic Team fully intends to enforce these Terms of Service in strict performance, however, Electronic Team reserves the right to enforce and waive breaches, remedies, and rights on a case-by-case basis. Any such waiver, as discussed above, must be made in writing and executed by Electronic Team, and when appropriate You, in order for any effect to be given to said waiver. No waiver will be effective without Electronic Team’s authorized signature, and when Your signature is required, no waiver also will be effective without Your authorized signature, unless Electronic Team can prove reasonable efforts were given or bad faith is at issue.
27.5 Governing Law and Jurisdiction. These Terms of Service shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia without reference to conflicts of law rules and principles. In the event of a dispute arising from or relating to the subject matter of these Terms of Service, a suit may be brought only in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Alexandria Division, provided that, in the event that suit may not be brought in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Alexandria Division, suit may be brought in any court of competent jurisdiction in the Commonwealth of Virginia. You further AGREE to submit to the personal jurisdiction of any such court in the Commonwealth of Virginia for purposes of adjudicating any dispute arising from or relating to the subject matter of these Terms of Service and You AGREE to accept service of process in connection with any such suit. You also AGREE to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the Commonwealth of Virginia for any claim or cause of action arising out of, relating to, or in connection with these Terms of Service or the Website or Services, provided that such exclusivity does not apply to legal actions initiated or brought by Electronic Team. These Terms of Service shall not be governed by the United Nations Convention on Contracts (CISG), the application of which is expressly excluded.

As stated in Section 27.4, no waivers will be given effect that are not in writing, and likewise, no other documents shall be consulted or are necessary in interpreting this agreement between Electronic Team and You, besides these Terms of Service.

Electronic Team, Inc. is continually improving digital accessibility for people with disabilities by implementing the recommendations of Section 508 and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0) produced by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C, the Web's governing body).
28.1 Conformance status
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) cover a wide range of recommendations aimed to make web content accessible to a wider range of people with physical, learning, and cognitive disabilities. To meet the Success Criteria of these guidelines, all the information presented on a webpage must be:
- Perceivable: can't be invisible to all of the user's senses;
- Operable: can't require action the user isn’t able to perform;
- Understandable: can’t feature complicated content or operations;
- Robust: can’t be accessible from advanced user agents.
The success criteria are at three levels: A, AA, and AAA.
Electronic Team, Inc. brings the website content in compliance with AA and partially AAA and is constantly looking for opportunities to fully meet AAA compliance.
28.2 Information and web user interface components
- Text alternatives for images provide both context and keywords that can be programmatically determined.
- The color contrast between the foreground and background enhances the experience for visually challenged users.
- Text resize to accommodate any user preference without loss of content or functionality.
- Clear header structure to establish a content hierarchy for programmatically-aided navigation. No decorative text formatting.
- Anchor text always describes the topic or purpose of the link. No links that just say "Click here" or "More...".
- The table format for laying out tabular information with clear headings and detailed summaries.
- Schema markup is used to maximally enhance the visibility of the rich media content.
- Sitemaps to ease navigation for both users and search engine crawlers.
