- 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 information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
Your written Notification of Claimed Infringement must be sent to our Designated Copyright Agent at this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will review and address, in the order they are received, all notices that comply with the requirements above. If your notice fails to substantially comply with all of these requirements, we may not be able respond to your notice.
3. DMCA Counter Notifications
If you believe that a DMCA request has been filed in error then you may send a Counter Notification to our Registered Agent at email@example.com. Your Counter Notification email must include the following information:
- Identify the specific item to which we have disabled access.
- Provide your full name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address.

- Your full name will be accepted as your signature.
Once we receive the counter notification we may send a copy to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the subscriber, the removed content may be replaced or access to it restored in 10 to 14 business days.
