13. 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 materials hosted by CA infringe your copyright (for example, materials posted by CA), you (or your agent) may send Company 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 the Site is 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 CA to locate the material on the Site; (d) the name, address, telephone number and e-mail 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 by CA against you, the DMCA permits you to send CA a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.copyright.gov for details. Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Site should be sent to our Copyright Agent for Notice of claims of copyright infringement at:
One CA Plaza
Islandia, NY 11749
Attn: Steven Klocinski, Assistant General Counsel
By Telephone: (631) 342-6000
By E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Copyright Agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement should be contacted only for the purposes set forth in this section. ALL OTHER INQUIRIES DIRECTED TO OUR COPYRIGHT AGENT WILL NOT BE ANSWERED.

CA Forums and Communities Participation Terms
In addition to the Terms and Conditions specified above, these Participation Terms are applicable specifically to individuals who participate in, access and/or use the Forums and Communities through any extranet website owned and operated by CA.
• Relevance of Topics.
These Forums and Communities are specifically provided to allow users and customers of CA to help each other in using products and services from CA, and to serve as a forum for discussion of appropriate industry-related topics. You must refrain from discussing personal matters, abusing any company or product, or, in general, from posting in a manner unrelated to discussion of the above topics.
• Appropriate Language
Everyone wants to have a positive experience while on the Forums and Communities – but you must make sure that you are not detracting from any other user's experience. In particular, you must refrain from posting anything unlawful, libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, indecent, lewd, harassing, threatening, harmful, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, abusive, inflammatory or otherwise objectionable or injurious to third parties. Your opinions are always welcome, but personal attacks and harassment in the Forums and Communities are not acceptable.
This community is provided to ca.com users and is not intended for the promotion of third party services, products, websites, or organizations. You must refrain from posting content that would constitute advertising, junk mail, spam, chain letters, or any other form of unauthorized solicitation.
• Keep it legal
It is unacceptable to post any material that would infringe on any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or other proprietary rights of any party, that contains software viruses or any other computer code or files that are designed to disrupt, damage, or limit the functioning of any software or hardware, or that is deemed to be illegal by any local, state, federal, or international law, rule or regulation.
• Be careful
Most people are happy to help out on these Forums and Communities, but remember that their advice is theirs only and that you are responsible for deciding whether or not to follow it. If the advice given by a user sounds wrong to you, do not try it. You should not post personal information on these Forums and Communities including your name and address, age, or phone number. Furthermore, if any user asks you for personal information, such as an account number, social security number, address, password or credit card number, do not provide it.
• Community Super Users
From time-to-time CA may designate certain members as a Forum or Community Super User. This designation does not create an employee or agency relationship between CA and this member, nor does it make this member a company spokesperson. Instead, the designation allows the CA Forums and Communities to know which members have been helpful, have provided constructive advice and have set a positive example and tone for the CA Forums and Communities. Like any information posted on the Forums and Communities, the opinions and advice provided by these members are their own. This content is the sole responsibility of the Super User, and anything we’ve said in these Forums and Communities Terms applies the same to the content posted by these members.
• CA retains the right to remove content and limit users' access
CA does not generally edit or monitor content posted by participants in its Forums and Communities. However, CA retains the right, at its sole discretion, to limit users' access to the CA Forums and Communities and to remove material that, in CA's sole judgment, does not comply with the current Forums and Communities Participation Terms, or that is otherwise inappropriate for these Forums and Communities, harmful, objectionable, or inaccurate. CA also retains the right to assign such right to some members of the Forums and Communities. Such individuals may take any action they deem necessary in their own judgment to support the Participation Terms, and, in general, that can detract from the experience of other users or the purpose of the Forums and Communities. Such actions may include editing or deleting material and banning individual users. CA is not responsible for any failure or delay in removing such material.
• Disclaimer of Warranties and Limitation of Liability
Users like you are providing most of the material in the CA Forums and Communities. Such third-party content is the sole responsibility of the person originating the material. CA does not control and is not responsible for this third-party material.
CA does not warrant or guarantee the accuracy, reliability, completeness, usefulness, non-infringement on intellectual property rights, or quality of any material that appears in a CA Blog or Wiki, regardless of who originates that material. You expressly understand and agree that you bear all risks associated with using or relying on the material. CA will not be liable or responsible in any way for any content in any CA Blog or Wiki, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in the material, or for any losses or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of or reliance on any material.
