SLEEP DOCTOR a notice requesting that the material be removed or access to it be blocked. Any notification by a copyright owner or a person authorized to act on its behalf that fails to comply with requirements of the DMCA shall  not  be  considered  sufficient  notice  and  shall  not  be  deemed  to  confer  upon  THE  SLEEP  DOCTOR  actual knowledge  of  facts  or  circumstances  from  which  infringing  material  or  acts  are  evident.  If  you  believe  in  good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send to THE  SLEEP  DOCTOR  a  counter-notice.  All  notices  and  counter  notices  must  meet  the  then  current  statutory requirements  imposed  by  the  DMCA;  see  http://www.loc.gov/copyright  for  details.  THE  SLEEP  DOCTOR’s Copyright  Agent  for  notice  of  claims  of  copyright  infringement  or  counter  notices  can  be  reached  as  follows: support@thesleepdoctor.com

The arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class or representative proceeding or claims (such as a class action, consolidated action or private attorney general action) unless all relevant parties specifically agree to do so following initiation of the arbitration.

Severability:
