Chubb’s DMCA Copyright Infringement Claim and Counter-Notification Policy
Chubb respects the intellectual property of others, and requires that our users do the same. On any interactive website or web features we offer (collectively “Site”), you may not upload, embed, post, email, transmit or otherwise make available any material that infringes any copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary rights of any person or entity. Chubb has the right to terminate the accounts of infringers.
Procedures to file a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) Copyright Infringement Claim
If you believe your work has been copied and posted on or through the Site in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please send Chubb's Copyright Agent a notification of claimed infringement with all of the following information:
(a) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works;
(b) identification of the claimed infringing material and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material on the Site (providing the URL(s) of the claimed infringing material satisfies this requirement);
(c) information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an email address;
(d) a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;
(e) a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notification is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner's behalf; and
(f) your physical or electronic signature.
Chubb's Copyright Agent for notification of claimed infringement can be reached as follows: Chris Kearns, EVP, Deputy General Counsel, 1133 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY 10036, 212-827-4422 (phone), or Chris.Kearns@chubb.com.
Upon receipt of a Notification of Copyright Infringement from a copyright owner that contains the required information described in (a) through (f) above, Chubb will notify the user, if known, of the alleged infringement and remove or disable access to the material that is alleged to be infringing if hosted on a Chubb site. No personal user information is shared with the copyright owner unless required by law.
If Chubb receives more than one Notice of Copyright Infringement concerning a user, the user may be deemed a “repeat copyright infringer.” Chubb reserves the right to terminate the accounts of “repeat copyright infringers.”
Procedure to File a DMCA Counter-Notification
If you have received a notice of copyright infringement and you believe that a copyright holder has accused you in error, you may file a DMCA Counter-Notification with Chubb’s designated agent.
To be effective, a Counter-Notification must be a written communication provided to Chubb’s designated agent and must include the following information:
(a) A physical or electronic signature of the user;
(b) 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 access to it was disabled;
(c) A statement under penalty of perjury that the user has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled;
(d) The user’s name, address and telephone number, and a statement that the subscriber consents to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the address is located, or if the user’s address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which the service provider may be found, and that the user will accept service of process from the person who provided notification or an agent of such person;
Upon receipt of a DMCA Counter-Notification, Chubb will provide the complaining party with a copy of the DMCA Counter-Notification. When Chubb receives a Counter-Notification that meets the requirements of the DMCA, Chubb will process the Counter-Notification in accordance with the requirements of the DMCA.
