Copyright Infringement; Notice and Take Down Procedures
The Tease specifically prohibits the posting of any content that violates or infringes the copyright rights and/or other intellectual property rights (including rights of privacy and publicity) of any person or entity. If you believe that any material contained on this Site infringes your copyright or other intellectual property rights, you should notify The Tease of your copyright infringement claim in accordance with the following procedure. The Tease will process notices of alleged infringement that it receives and will take appropriate action as required by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”). The DMCA requires that notifications of claimed copyright infringement should be sent to the following address:
301 S. Blount Street, Floor 2
Madison, WI 53703
To be effective, the notification must be in writing and contain the following information (DMCA, 17 U.S.C. § 512(c)(3)):
- Physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
- Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
- Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material;
- Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted;
- A statement that the complaining party has 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

Please contact The Tease with any questions or concerns in connection with these Terms or the Site, or to provide any notice under these Terms.
The failure of The Tease to partially or fully exercise any rights or the waiver of The Tease of any breach of these Terms and Conditions by you shall not prevent a subsequent exercise of such right by The Tease or be deemed a waiver by The Tease of any subsequent breach by you of the same or any other term of these Terms. The rights and remedies of The Tease under these Terms and any other applicable agreement between you and The Tease shall be cumulative, and the exercise of any such right or remedy shall not limit The Tease’s right to exercise any other right or remedy.
The laws of the State of Wisconsin shall govern these Terms without regard to conflict of laws provisions.
Any dispute relating in any way to your visit to, or use of, the Site, to the products you purchase through the Site (including a subscription), or to your relationship to The Tease, shall be submitted to confidential arbitration in Madison, Wisconsin; provided, however, that to the extent that you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate The Tease’s intellectual property rights, The Tease may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court in the State of Wisconsin. 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 Wisconsin. Arbitration under these Terms will be conducted pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules then prevailing at the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrator’s award will be final and binding and may be entered into as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration under these Terms will be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to these Terms, whether through class action proceedings or otherwise. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of, related to or connected with the use of this Site or these Terms, must be filed within one (1) year after such claim of action arose or be forever banned.
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award.
You and The Tease agree that each may only bring claims against the other in your or its individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and The Tease agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims with your claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim.
