The Order may be a physical purchase order or may be a form that you click through electronically, including by signing up for specific services on the Warhead website. Warhead offers both free and paid products and services. If your Order indicates that your selected product or service will be provided at no charge, the payment obligations set forth in Section 3.1 will not apply until such time as you upgrade to a paid product or service or place an order for paid products or services.
2.1 Access.

Updates (if any) shall be subject to the same terms and conditions of this Agreement.
2.5 Restrictions and Conditions.

Warhead respects the intellectual property rights of others, and asks Customer to do the same. It is Warheads policy to terminate the access privileges of those who repeatedly infringe the copyright rights of others.

If you believe that your user content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the content in your user content, you may send a counter-notice containing the following information to the copyright agent: (1) your physical or electronic signature; (2) 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; (3) 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 (4) your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court in the Western District of Washington 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 it 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 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at the sole discretion of Warhead.
