5.3. COPYRIGHT COMPLAINTS AND COUNTER-NOTICES
KULIMA respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users to do the same. We have adopted the following policy toward copyright infringement related to the Services in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA").
If you believe in good faith the Site is hosting content that infringes your copyright, please let us know by submitting a notice to our Copyright Agent via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your notice must contain ALL of the following:
Identification of the copyrighted work(s) claimed to have been infringed.
Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material (i.e., URL address).
Contact information so that we can reach you (address, telephone number and email address).
A statement by you that you have 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.
A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the information in your notification is accurate, and that you are the copyright owner or are authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf.
Before you file an infringement notice, please carefully consider whether or not the use of copyrighted material at issue is protected by the “fair use” doctrine, as you could be liable for costs and attorneys’ fees should you file a takedown notice where there is no infringing use. Please also check to make sure you haven’t authorized the use at issue (for example, whether you have given a creative professional who prepared materials for your company the right to use those materials as examples of his or her past work). If you are unsure whether a use of your copyrighted material constitutes infringement, please contact an attorney.
In all cases, if you do not hear from us within 14 days of submitting a complaint, please contact us at the email@example.com and we will respond as soon as possible.
After removing access to the material pursuant to a valid notice, KULIMA will immediately notify the user responsible for the allegedly infringing material that it has removed or disabled access to the material. KULIMA reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to immediately terminate the account of any member who is the subject of repeated notifications.
If you believe access to your content was disabled or removed by KULIMA as a result of an improper copyright infringement notice, please send our Copyright Agent (contact information above) a written counter‐notice that contains all of the following:
A description of the work improperly removed, along with your user name and the location in the Site at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled.
Contact information so that we can reach you (address, telephone number and email address).
A statement under penalty of perjury, signed by you, that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification.
A statement that you consent to jurisdiction of Zambian Court and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.
Before you file a counter-notice, please carefully consider whether or not your use of the copyrighted material at issue is infringing, as you could be liable for costs and attorneys’ fees in the event that a court decides your counter-notice misrepresented that the material was removed by mistake.
Upon receipt of a valid counter-notification, KULIMA will forward it to the notifying party who submitted the original notification. The original notifying party (or the copyright holder he or she represents) will then have ten (10) days to notify us that he or she has filed legal action relating to the allegedly infringing material. If KULIMA does not receive any such notification within ten (10) days, we may restore the material to the Services.

This section covers additional terms that apply to your use of any subscription plan that KULIMA may offer with respect to our Services. By using a subscription plan, you agree to the additional terms in this section.
Subscription plan: During your subscription to a subscription plan, you get a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable license from us to access and view the content included in that subscription plan via the Services.

You may not transfer, assign, or share your subscription with anyone else. Your subscription plan will be valid for the agreed term and then will be automatically renewed according to your subscription settings (e.g. monthly or annually) unless you cancel your subscription with prior notice to the end of your subscription plan term.
Fees and payments: The subscription fee will be listed at the time of your purchase. You shall pay the fee using the offered payment methods provided by KULIMA for any subscription plans. If you select Services with an automatic renewal feature, you authorize KULIMA to maintain your account information and charge that account automatically upon the renewal of the Services you choose with no further action required by you.

For those Services with an automatic renewal feature, KULIMA may also change the price for those services and will communicate any price changes to you in writing. Price changes will take effect at the start of the next subscription period following the date of the price change. As permitted by local law, you accept the new price by continuing to use the Services after the price change takes effect. If you do not agree with the price changes, you have the right to reject the change by canceling your subscription before the price change goes into effect. Therefore please make sure you read any such notification of price changes carefully.
Refunds and cancellations: If, within the first 14 days after you have purchased your subscription plan, you become dissatisfied, KULIMA will refund the full amount of your subscription, and subsequently terminate your subscription plan and additionally remove access to any courses and benefits you may have accessed under the subscription plan. Refunds will not be available if requested after this 14-day period, although you may cancel your subscription at any time. If you cancel your subscription plan, you will continue to have access to the subscription services until the end of your current subscription period. While your subscription will not be renewed, we will not refund any subscription fees previously paid to us.
