D. Suspension of Service.
If any amount owed by you under this or any other agreement for Services that PLACEIT provides is overdue (or ten (10) or more days overdue in the case of amounts you have authorized PLACEIT to charge to your credit card), PLACEIT may, without limiting any other rights and remedies, (i) accelerate your unpaid fee obligations under such agreements so that all such obligations become immediately due and payable, and suspend the Services that are being provided to you, including you and your Users’ access to the Services or use of any PLACEIT Application; and/or (ii) terminate this Agreement and any Services, in PLACEIT’s sole discretion.

PLACEIT abides by the federal Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) by responding to notices of alleged copyright or other intellectual property infringement that comply with the DMCA and other applicable laws. As part of our response, and regardless of the merits of the alleged infringement, we may remove or disable access to material (including User Content) residing on a site that is controlled or operated by PLACEIT that is claimed to be infringing, in which case we will make a good-faith attempt to contact the person who submitted the affected material so that they may make a counter notification, also in accordance with the DMCA. PLACEIT does not control content hosted on Third Party Applications or other websites, and cannot remove content from sites it does not own or control. If you are the copyright owner of content hosted on a Third Party Application or other website, and you have not authorized the use of your content, please contact the administrator of that application or website directly to have the content removed. Before serving either a Notice of Infringing Material or Counter-Notification, you may wish to contact a lawyer to better understand your rights and obligations under the DMCA and other applicable laws. The following notice requirements are intended to comply with PLACEIT’s rights and obligations under the DMCA and, in particular, Section 512(c), and do not constitute legal advice.
