Notice and Procedure for Making Claims of Copyright Infringement in Accordance with DMCA


In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, the text of which may be found on the U.S. Copyright Office website at http://www.copyright.gov, Qstrom will respond expeditiously to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement that are reported to Qstrom’s designated copyright agent identified below. As part of our response, we may remove or disable access to material residing on a site that is controlled or operated by Qstrom that is claimed to be infringing, in which case we will make a good-faith attempt to contact the person who submitted the affected material so that they may make a counter notification, also in accordance with the DMCA. This page describes the information that should be present in these notices.



Notice of Infringing Material


If you are a copyright owner, or are authorized to act on behalf of an owner of the copyright or of any exclusive right under the copyright, and believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please report your notice of infringement to Qstrom by providing Qstrom’s designated copyright agent listed below with the following information:


  1. A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;


  2. Identify in sufficient detail the copyrighted work that you believe has been infringed or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site.


  3. Identify the material that you claim is infringing the copyrighted work listed in #2 above and that is to be removed or access disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit Qstrom to locate the material;


  4. Provide information reasonably sufficient to permit Qstrom to contact you, including a name, address, telephone number and email address;


  5. If possible, provide information sufficient to allow Qstrom to notify the owner/administrator of the allegedly infringing content;


  6. Include the following statements:

    1. “I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials described above as allegedly infringing is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.”


    2. “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.”


  7. Sign the notice;


  8. Send the notice to:
    Qstrom, LLC
    ATTN: DMCA Agent
    4975 Preston Park Blvd., Ste. 490
    Plano, TX 75093


  9. Please note that a copy of this legal notice will be forwarded to the person who provided the allegedly infringing content.

We use cookies and information gathered through their use to make your experience with Qstrom and certain other sites richer and more personalized based on the products, services, or other interaction you have with us and other sites. Information gathered through use of cookies may be used to make offers to you via online ads, email, U.S. mail, or telephone, subject to the privacy preferences you have on file with Qstrom. We also use cookies, sometimes in conjunction with service providers, in online advertising either on the Site or on third party sites to help determine which of our advertisements (if any) are most likely to appeal to you.


Other parties that may collect information about your web browsing behavior when you use our Site are generally limited to service providers who may only use any information collected to provide services and marketing for us and not to provide services or advertising for any other party. Note, however, that we may also provide certain widgets or tools on our sites, such as tools that allow web surfers to easily share information on another platform, such as a social media platform. At other times, information from a third party may be embedded on our site, such as a map or information streaming from another site, including communications streaming from a third party social media platform. These widgets, tools, and informational items often function through the use of third party cookies utilized by the third party site, such as the social media platform. As a result, these third parties may have access to information about your web browsing on the pages of our Site where these widgets, tools, or information are placed. You may wish to review information at third party sites, such as social media platforms where you have an account, to determine how these third parties treat data that they obtain through the use of cookies.

We recommend that you refer to information supplied by browser providers for more specific information, including how to use these tools.


Cookies is a term also used to describe other locally stored objects, such as cookies stored in an Adobe folder on your device. These cookies will not be deleted when you clear cookies from your browser. We may use this technology for purposes such as information security and fraud prevention. In addition to the uses described above, we use information for purposes as allowed by law such as: servicing; communicating with you; improving our Site, products, or services; legal compliance; risk control; information security; anti-fraud purposes; marketing or personalizing the presentation of our products and services to you; tracking website usage, such as number of hits, pages visited, and the length of user sessions in order to evaluate the usefulness of our sites; and using read-receipt notifications in our email communications. We may share information with service providers with whom we work, such as data processors and companies that help us market products and services to you. When permitted or required by law, we may share information with additional third parties for purposes including response to legal process. As applicable, please see the additional privacy policies referenced above, such as the Qstrom Privacy Policy, for more information on how we may share information with affiliates and third parties.


Some newer browsers have incorporated “Do Not Track” features. Most of these features, when turned on, send a signal or preference to the websites you visit indicating that you do not wish to be tracked.
