My Sci-Fi Club, myscificlub.com, Email: email@example.com, Telephone: (865) 255-9453
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;

20. Waiver; Remedies
The failure of My Sci-Fi Club to partially or fully exercise any rights or the waiver of My Sci-Fi Club of any breach of these Terms and Conditions by you shall not prevent a subsequent exercise of such right by My Sci-Fi Club or be deemed a waiver by My Sci-Fi Club of any subsequent breach by you of the same or any other term of these Terms. The rights and remedies of My Sci-Fi Club under these Terms and any other applicable agreement between you and My Sci-Fi Club shall be cumulative, and the exercise of any such right or remedy shall not limit My Sci-Fi Club right to exercise any other right or remedy.
21. Governing Law
The laws of the State of Tennessee 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 My Sci-Fi Club shall be submitted to confidential arbitration in Chattanooga, Tennessee; provided, however, that to the extent that you have in any manner violated or threatened to violate our intellectual property rights, we may seek injunctive or other appropriate relief in any state or federal court in the State sitting in Chattanooga, Tennessee. 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 Tennessee. 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 this 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 MY SCI-FI CLUB AGREE THAT EACH MAY ONLY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY 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 My Sci-Fi Club 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.
Questions: Should you have any questions regarding these Terms you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We use this information to process and fulfill your order and to notify you of your order status. All archived credit card information is maintained in a secure and safe environment.

In addition, when you respond to a contest, survey, questionnaire, sweepstakes or other promotional feature, we may ask you for your name, address and email address or other Personal Information. We do not collect any Personal Information about you unless it is voluntarily provided by you. My Sci-Fi Club will never sell, rent or share your Personal Information, including your e-mail address, with any third parties for marketing purposes without your express permission.
NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
In addition, we may also collect non-personally identifiable information, such as IP host address, pages viewed, browser type, duration and frequency of visits, and other data, and may aggregate any information collected in a manner which does not identify any individual ("Aggregate Information").

CHANGE OF CONTROL
If you submit your email address to be added to a mailing list or Sweepstakes or other promotion, we will use the email address for the sole purpose of sending you announcements, special offers from My Sci-Fi Club and its promotional partners along with Site updates. Each email we send will contain information on how to unsubscribe from our mailing list. You can also unsubscribe by sending an email to email@example.com.

Pixel Tags or Beacons
In addition to cookies, we also collect Aggregate Information through the use of "tracking pixels," also known as "beacons." A tracking pixel is a transparent graphic image (usually 1 pixel x 1 pixel) that is placed on a web page and, in combination with a cookie, allows for the collection of information regarding the use of the web page that contains the tracking pixel. We use tracking pixels to tell when an advertisement has been clicked on or otherwise interacted with, and use that information to judge which advertisements are more appealing to users. In some cases, we use third party service providers to help us collect and analyze this information. You can also generally opt-out of receiving personalized ads from third party advertisers and ad networks who are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) or who follow the Digital Advertising Alliance's Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising by visiting the opt-out pages on the NAI website and DAA website.
How We Protect Your Information
We are committed to protecting the information we receive from you. However, My Sci-Fi Club will not be liable for disclosures of your Personal Information due to errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third parties. We have undertaken commercially reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized Internet access to visitor data retained in our servers, however, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, My Sci-Fi Club cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or any information provided online, and you do so at your own risk. Users must accept all risks associated with any data transmission, including the risk that their Personal Information may be intercepted in transit.
The Site encrypts your credit card number and other Personal Information using secure socket layer (SSL) technology to provide for the secure transmission of the information from your PC to our servers. In addition, only those employees and third parties who need access to your information in order to perform their duties are allowed such access.

You may also update or change your Personal Information or Preferences by sending an email to email@example.com.
