The links on any of the Sites and/or Services will let you leave the particular Site or Service you are accessing in order to access a linked site (the “Linked Sites”). We provide these links as a convenience, but we neither control nor endorse these Linked Sites, nor have we reviewed or approved the content which appears on the Linked Sites. We are not responsible for the legality, accuracy or inappropriate nature of any content, advertising, products or other materials on or available from any Linked Sites.

5. Copyright Policy
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 us infringe your copyright, you, or your agent may send to us 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 our 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 us 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.
We suggest 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.
Our policy with respect to the collection and use of your personally identifiable information is set forth at https://www.doctorchrisjones.com/privacy-policy. By accepting these Terms and Conditions, you acknowledge this policy.
