5. Advertising and Links to Other Sites

From time to time, you may communicate with, receive communications from, be re-directed to, interact with, share Content on or with, or participate in or use the services or obtain goods and services of or from, third parties such as third party social media networks (including Facebook and Twitter) our advertisers, sponsors, or promotional partners (collectively, the "Advertisers") as a result of your use of the Site and/or the Services. All such communication, interaction and participation is strictly and solely between you and such Advertisers and we shall not be responsible or liable to you in any way in connection with these activities or transactions (including, without limitation, any representations, warranties, covenants, contracts or other terms or conditions that may exist between you and the Advertiser or any goods or services you may purchase or obtain from any Advertiser).

Please read our Privacy Policy, which describes how the Site collects and uses your Personal Information and other information, and the nature of certain of our relationships.

6. Claims of Copyright Infringement

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 U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that Content infringes your copyright, you (or your agent) may send NBC Olympics a notice requesting that the material be removed or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information: (a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on this website are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow NBC Olympics to locate the material on the Site; (d) the name, address, telephone number and email address (if available) of the complaining party; (e) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and (f) 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. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send NBC Olympics a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see for details. Notices and counter-notices with respect to this website should be sent to: NBC Olympics, 30 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, New York 10112, 212-664-4444, NBC Olympics suggests that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice. Also, be aware that there can be penalties for false claims under the DMCA.
