  • A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright that has been allegedly infringed;
  • Identification of the works or materials being infringed;
  • Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing including information regarding the location of the infringing materials that the copyright owner seeks to have removed as well as the date and time of the alleged infringement, with sufficient detail so that GCOC is capable of finding and verifying its existence;
  • Contact information about the notifier including address, telephone number and, if available, email address;
  • A statement that the notifier has a good faith belief that the material identified is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and

Forward Looking Statements

No information contained in the Online Services constitutes or shall be deemed to constitute an invitation to invest or otherwise deal in any security of GCOC.

Various pages and parts of the Online Services contain certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of applicable securities laws. All statements, other than statements of historical fact are forward-looking statements including statements addressing predictions, expectations, beliefs, plans, projections, objectives, assumptions or future events. Words such as “expects,” “does not expect,” “is expected,” “anticipates,” “does not anticipate,” “intends,” “plans,” “projects,” “believes,” “does not believe,” “estimates,” “may,” “could,” “would,” “might,” or “will,” or any grammatical variations of such words and similar expressions are used to identify such forward-looking statements.

Forward-looking statements relating to the operations of GCOC are based on management’s expectations, estimates and projections about GCOC in effect on the date the statements were made. While management considers the assumptions made to be reasonable, the assumptions are inherently subject to significant business, social, economic, political, regulatory, competitive and other risks and uncertainties, contingencies and other factors that could cause actual performance, achievements, actions, events, results or conditions to be materially different from those projected in the forward-looking statements. These statements are therefore not guarantees of future performance and involve certain known and unknown risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict and beyond the control of management. Further, certain forward-looking statements are based upon assumptions as to future events that may not prove to be accurate. Accordingly, you should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. GCOC undertakes no obligation to subsequently update or revise the forward-looking statements contained on the Online Services to reflect events or circumstances after the date of posting other than as required by applicable law.

Hyperlinks and Frames

The Online Services may contain links to other web sites or online services which are not operated by GCOC (the “External Sites”). GCOC has no control over and is not responsible or liable for the External Sites, including but not limited to the content of such External Sites, or their respective privacy and data collection practices. The links to External Sites are only for your convenience and therefore you access them at your own risk. Links do not imply that GCOC sponsors, endorses, is affiliated with or associated with, or has been legally authorized to use any trademark, trade name, service mark, design, logo, symbol or other copyrighted materials displayed on or accessible through such External Sites. Before you frame or create any kind of hyperlink to the Online Services, you must obtain the prior written permission of GCOC.

THESE LIMITATIONS SHALL APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING ANY FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY.
