Company has adopted the following general policy toward copyright infringement in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act or DMCA (posted at https://www.copyright.gov/legislation/pl105-304.pdf). The address of Company’s Designated Agent to Receive Notification of Claimed Infringement (“Designated Agent”) is listed at the end of this Section. It is Company’s policy to (1) block access to or remove material that it believes in good faith to be copyrighted material that has been illegally copied and distributed by any of our advertisers, affiliates, content providers, members or users; and (2) remove and discontinue service to repeat offenders.
Procedure for Reporting Copyright Infringements:
If you believe that material or content residing on or accessible through the Services infringes a copyright, please send a notice of copyright infringement containing the following information to the Designated Agent listed below: 1. A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright that has been allegedly infringed; 2. Identification of works or materials being infringed; 3. Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing including information regarding the location of the infringing materials that the copyright owner seeks to have removed, with sufficient detail so that Company is capable of finding and verifying its existence; 4. Contact information about the notifier including address, telephone number and, if available, email address; 5. A statement that the notifier has a good faith belief that the material identified in (3) is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and 6. A statement made under penalty of perjury that the information provided is accurate and the notifying party is authorized to make the complaint on behalf of the copyright owner.
Once Proper Bona Fide Infringement Notification is Received by the Designated Agent:
It is Company’s policy:
1. To remove or disable access to the infringing material; 2. To notify the content provider, member or user that it has removed or disabled access to the material; and 3. That repeat offenders will have the infringing material removed from the system and that Company will terminate such content provider’s, member’s or user’s access to the Services.
Procedure to Supply a Counter-Notice to the Designated Agent:
If the content provider, member or user believes that the material that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or the content provider, member or user believes that it has the right to post and use such material from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or, pursuant to the law, the content provider, member, or user, must send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Designated Agent listed below: 1. A physical or electronic signature of the content provider, member or user; 2. Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled; 3. A statement that the content provider, member or user has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material; and 4. Content provider’s, member’s or user’s name, address, telephone number, and, if available, email address, and a statement that such person or entity consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal Court for the judicial district in which the content provider’s, member’s or user’s address is located, or, if the content provider’s, member’s or user’s address is located outside the United States, for any judicial district in which Company is located, and that such person or entity will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.
If a counter-notice is received by the Designated Agent, Company may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that Company may replace the removed material 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 material may be replaced or access to it restored in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at Company’s discretion.
Please contact Company’s Designated Agent to Receive Notification of Claimed Infringement at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org

4. HOW YOUR INFORMATION IS SHARED

4.2 Sharing by us
We share your Information with third parties as listed below and as otherwise described elsewhere in this Policy:
We employ and allow third parties to perform tasks on our behalf, such as payment processing, data management and analytics, marketing, advertising, communication and IT services, and we need to share your Information with them in order for them to provide such products and services. Unless we tell you differently or you consent otherwise, these third parties do not have any right to use your Information beyond what is necessary to assist us in providing such products and services.

Subject to applicable laws, we may share your Information with companies with whom the Company is affiliated or related to (e.g., parent company or subsidiaries), and will require such affiliated or related companies to use the Information solely in accordance with this Policy.
We may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer Information is typically one of the business assets that would be transferred. Also, if we (or our assets) are acquired or merged, or if we go out of business, enter bankruptcy, or go through some other change of control, Information would be one of the assets transferred to or acquired by a third party.
PROTECTION OF COMPANY AND OTHERS
We reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any Information that we reasonably believe is necessary to comply with law or court order; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, interests, or safety of our Company, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
AGGREGATED AND ANONYMIZED INFORMATION

From time to time, the Company may provide demographic and statistical information to prospective partners for the purposes of securing advertising and/or for general promotion of the Service. This disclosure will not share any personal information of individual users but is intended to give a broad overview of the Service’s membership.
5. THE SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION
The security of your Information is important to us. We take commercially reasonable security measures, including administrative, technical, and physical safeguards, to protect your Information from loss, theft, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.

We may process your personal data for the purposes of our legitimate interests or for the legitimate interests of third parties, provided that such processing shall not outweigh your rights and freedoms.

Axis of Empires LLC TRADEMARK CONTENT & DISPLAY POLICY
Axis of Empires LLC ® TRADEMARK CONTENT & DISPLAY POLICY
GUIDELINES FOR THIRD PARTY USE OF Axis of Empires LLC ® BRAND ELEMENTS
Axis of Empires LLC has gained valuable intellectual property rights by the proper and continuous use of its trademarks and service marks (“trademarks”) to identify its goods and services. Improper use of a trademark can cause its value to become generic or diluted. Therefore, it is essential that all brand elements of Axis of Empires LLC including trademarks, web pages, logos, and other distinctive features are used properly in all promotional, advertising, instructional or other materials. Use of any Axis of Empires LLC brand element should not mislead consumers about any Axis of Empires LLC sponsorship, affiliation, or endorsement of your company or website.
Axis of Empires LLC does not object to referential use of its trademarks (excluding logos) in marketing and promotional materials, books and other printed matter, conferences, applications, demonstrations, and on internet locations, provided such use complies with these guidelines. All other uses of Axis of Empires LLC trademarks or other brand elements require express written permission from Axis of Empires LLC and must also comply with these guidelines.
Except as otherwise agreed by Axis of Empires LLC in writing, Axis of Empires LLC reserves the right to withdraw its permission to use its trademarks at any time and for any reason, including withdrawal of permission to any individual or entity Axis of Empires LLC believes misuses its trademarks or other brand elements. These guidelines may be periodically updated without notice.
RULES FOR PROPER USAGE
THINGS TO DO
⦁ Axis of Empires LLC trademarks must be used as a proper adjective (not a noun or verb) the first time in text and periodically thereafter.
⦁ The Axis of Empires LLC trademark should be followed by the generic term the trademark describes, e.g., “Axis of Empires LLC ®”
⦁ Trademarks should not be made plural or possessive.
⦁ Spell and capitalize the trademark properly.
⦁ Use the trademark in a manner that reflects favorably on Axis of Empires LLC and its products and services. The trademark must never be used in a disparaging manner.
⦁ Only high-resolution logos or other images may be used by those licensed to do so by Axis of Empires LLC.
⦁ When using the trademark in the United States or Greece, include the appropriate ™ or ® symbol on first use. For use outside the United States or Greece, do not include trademark symbols. Instead use the following footnote when using a Axis of Empires LLC trademark: “Axis of Empires LLC is a trademark of Axis of Empires LLC, registered in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and other countries.”
THINGS NOT TO DO
⦁ Do not use Axis of Empires LLC brand elements without express written permission from Axis of Empires LLC except as otherwise mentioned in the second paragraph of these guidelines.
⦁ Axis of Empires LLC trademarks must not be used in any manner that suggests a common, descriptive, or generic meaning.
⦁ Do not use Axis of Empires LLC trademarks in any way that might mislead consumers about any Axis of Empires LLC sponsorship, affiliation, or endorsement of you or your company, or your products and services.
⦁ Do not incorporate Axis of Empires LLC trademarks with any third party trademarks or logos, including your own.
⦁ Axis of Empires LLC brand elements should not be displayed as the most prominent element on your web page or other materials.
⦁ Do not use an identical or virtually identical Axis of Empires LLC trademark as a second level domain name (e.g. axisofempirestv.com, axisofempiresnetwork.com, etc.)
⦁ Do not use or register Axis of Empires LLC trademarks as or incorporated in social media account names, profiles or monikers.
⦁ Words such as “official,” “exclusive,” “approved,” “sponsored,” or “endorsed” may not be used in conjunction with any Axis of Empires LLC trademarks without express written permission.
⦁ Do not display Axis of Empires LLC trademarks or logos on any web page or other materials that violate any law or regulation or the rights of any third person.
⦁ Do not adopt brand elements that are identical or confusingly similar to those of Axis of Empires LLC.
⦁ Do not manufacture, sell, or give away merchandise items such as T-shirts, mugs, pens, etc. that use any Axis of Empires LLC trademark, including logos, unless pursuant to an express written trademark license from Axis of Empires LLC.
⦁ Do not use the ™ or ® symbol in connection with marks in countries where our marks have not been registered. Trademark rights vary from country to country.
⦁ This policy is designed to help you use Axis of Empires LLC’s brand and assets, including our logo, content, and trademarks, without needing to negotiate a separate agreement with us. If you would like to use any other Axis of Empires LLC assets not covered by this document, you must contact us at press at axisofempires dot com and present a visual mockup of intended use.
The Axis of Empires LLC logo consists of the Axis of Empires logotype, Ouroboros circle, and the Axis of Empires LLC® wordmark. The typeface used for the Axis of Empires LLC logo is Stonecross.
GUIDELINES FOR ENDORSERS & INFLUENCERS
Axis of Empires LLC believes that viewers of content are best served and protected when they can recognize when content is sponsored and/or influenced by a brand. As such, we are firm believers in active disclosure of any brand relationships that creators may have when producing content.
“The FTC’s Endorsement Guides: What People are Asking” underpin our disclosure beliefs and guide our requirements for our creators as described in these guidelines.
These guidelines apply to all advertising, sponsorship, and promotion campaigns (collectively, “Campaigns”) taking place within the Axis of Empires LLC network. These guidelines apply whenever a creator receives a gift of any value as part of a Campaign, whether a cash payment, a free product, or an invitation to a special event. For this reason, we monitor all Campaigns negotiated by or with Axis of Empires LLC for compliance with these guidelines.
Disclosure is appropriate and needed if a viewer might give a different weight to a creator’s endorsement if they knew of the creator’s relationship with a brand. If the actual content clearly conveys that the creator is making a commercial/advertisement to all viewers, then a disclosure is not necessary. However, more often that not, a more direct disclosure is needed.
When a disclosure is needed, it should clearly state what the relationship is between the brand and the creator.
In a video, a disclosure must be (i) clearly either spoken or superimposed on the screen early in the video (and repeating every 3-5 minutes if a longer video) and (ii) in the description box of the video. There are many acceptable ways to approach this, but we recommend one of the following:
⦁ SPONSORED/”I’m being sponsored by…”
⦁ PAID/”I’m being paid by…”
⦁ (BRANDNAME) AMBASSADOR
In social media, regardless of the length of a post, some form of disclosure must be included within the post itself. For social media posts, we recommend one of the following:
⦁ #(BRANDNAME) AMBASSADOR
In Instagram posts, the disclosure must occur within the first three lines of text and within Snapchat or Instagram Stories, the disclosure must be clearly superimposed on the image.
In all cases, a disclosure should help to clarify a creator’s relationship with a brand, not obscure it.

In order to provide a positive experience and protect the safety of users of the Axis of Empires LLC service, websites, mobile applications, and software applications (the “Service”), we’ve established some Community Rules on the type of content and behavior we allow. All users must adhere to these Community Rules and failure to do so may result in the suspension or termination of your account.

Do not use the Service to promote, incite or engage in the harassment or bullying of others, in self-harm or other illegal activities. Making threats (direct or indirect) of violence, including threatening or promoting terrorism, is also prohibited. Users who harass, bully or threaten other users will have their content removed and accounts terminated, and also may be subject to serious criminal legal consequences in certain jurisdictions.
