The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under the U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by Capacity Systems LLC infringe your copyright, you, or your agent may send to Capacity Systems LLC a notice requesting that the material be removed or access to it be blocked. Any notification by a copyright owner or a person authorized to act on its behalf that fails to comply with requirements of the DMCA shall not be considered sufficient notice and shall not be deemed to confer upon Capacity Systems LLC actual knowledge of facts or circumstances from which infringing material or acts are evident. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send to Capacity Systems LLC a counter-notice. All notices and counter notices must meet the then current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright for details. Capacity Systems LLC’s Copyright Agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement or counter notices can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Site is not directed to individuals under the age of 13, nor does it contain information which would be potentially harmful to minors in any way. However, all visitors to the Website under the age of 13 should not disclose or provide any Personally Identifiable Information. In the event that Capacity Systems LLC discovers that a child under the age of 13 has provided Personally Identifiable Information to us, we will delete the child’s Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998. Please see the Federal Trade Commission’s website for this act. Notwithstanding the foregoing, pursuant to 47 U.S.C. Section 230(d), as amended, we hereby notify you that parental control protections are commercially available to assist you in limiting access to material that is harmful to minors. More information on the availability of such software can be found through publicly available sources. You may wish to contact your Internet Service Provider for more information.
In the event of a dispute, you or Capacity Systems LLC must send to the other party a notice of dispute, which is a written statement that sets forth the name, address and contact information of the party giving the notice, the facts giving rise to the dispute and the relief requested. You and Capacity Systems LLC will attempt to resolve a dispute through informal negotiation within sixty (60) days from the date the notice of dispute is sent. After sixty (60) days, you or we may commence arbitration. You may also litigate a dispute in small claims court if the dispute meets the requirements to be heard in small claims court, whether or not you negotiated informally first. EXCEPT FOR CASES DECIDED IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT, YOU ARE GIVING UP THE RIGHT TO LITIGATE A DISPUTE IN COURT BEFORE A JUDGE OR JURY.
Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of, relating to, or having any connection with this Agreement or the parties’ relationship generally, or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity of this Agreement, including without limitation the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, will be determined by binding and confidential arbitration in Chicago, Illinois, unless the parties agree in writing on a different location. Regardless of the amount in controversy, the arbitration will be administered by JAMS, Inc., pursuant to its Streamlined Arbitration Rules & Procedures. In the event of a conflict between such rules and this Agreement, this Agreement will control. The parties will agree within a reasonable period of time after notice is made of instituting the arbitration process whether to use one or three arbitrators, and if the parties cannot agree within fifteen (15) business days, the parties will use a single arbitrator. If the parties cannot agree upon arbitrator(s) within an additional fifteen (15) business days, the arbitrator(s) will be selected by JAMS. However, no arbitrator may be appointed unless and until he/she has agreed to these procedures. The arbitrator(s) must be a retired judge or an attorney with at least 15 years of experience in the field of commercial litigation. The arbitrator(s) will apply substantive law and may award injunctive relief or any other remedy available from a judge. The arbitrator(s) may authorize only limited discovery upon a showing of substantial need by the party seeking discovery. All aspects of the arbitration will be treated by the parties and the arbitrator as confidential. If it is the prevailing party on any issue or claim in the arbitration, the respondent will be awarded its reasonable attorney’s fees and arbitration costs by the arbitrator(s). Otherwise, the parties will share the costs of arbitration equally. In no event will claimant be awarded its attorney’s fees or arbitration costs. The final award must be delivered by the arbitrator(s) within one year of the initial demand (or less) absent written agreement by the parties to the contrary. None of the time limits in this Section are jurisdictional. Any award will be accompanied by a reasoned opinion describing the basis of the award. The arbitration will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1 et seq., and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof.
No Class Actions
PROCEEDINGS TO RESOLVE OR LITIGATE A DISPUTE IN ANY FORUM WILL BE CONDUCTED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS. Neither you nor Capacity Systems LLC will seek to have a dispute heard as a class action, private attorney general action, or in any other proceeding in which either party acts or proposes to act in a representative capacity. No arbitration or proceeding can be combined with another without the prior written consent of all parties to the arbitration or proceeding. If the class action waiver is found to be illegal or unenforceable as to all or some parts of a dispute, those parts will be severed and proceed in a court of law, with the remaining parts proceeding in arbitration.
Waiver and Severability
Equal Employment Opportunity
Capacity Systems LLC abides by the principles of equal employment opportunity. In accordance with law, the firm recruits, hires, trains and promotes individuals without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sex, age, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression, veteran’s status, disability, genetic information or status within any other protected group. For personnel actions such as compensation, benefits, promotions or transfers, only valid position-related requirements are considered. Continuing professional education and social and recreational programs are planned in accordance with equal opportunity standards.
An individual, who has a physical or mental disability which substantially limits one or more major life activity, is provided the same opportunities accorded other individuals in all areas of employment, provided the individual is otherwise able to perform the essential functions of the position.

Cookies and Similar Technologies
As is the case with many commercial Web sites, Capacity may automatically log certain information about user access to the Site, which may include a user’s internet protocol address, browser type, internet service provider, referring/ exit pages, operating system, as well as date and time stamps. We also use “cookies” which are small data files stored on a user’s computer to enhance your on-line experience when visiting our Site. The use of “cookies” is common practice for most Web sites; however, most Web browsers include settings that allow users to decline cookies.
Most Web browsers will allow you to see what cookies you have and delete them on an individual basis or block cookies from particular or all websites. Be aware that any preference you have set will be lost if you delete all cookies, including preference to opt-out from cookies as this itself requires an opt-out cookie to have been set. If you wish to restrict or block the cookies which are used on the Site, you can do this through your browser settings.

Do Not Track Signals
Some Web browsers incorporate a “do-not track” or similar feature that signals to Web sites with which the browser communicates that a visitor does not want to have his or her online activity tracked. As of the Effective Date of this policy, not all browsers offer a “do-not-track” option and “do-not-track” signals are not yet uniform. The Site does not currently respond to “do-not-track” signals or other similar features.
