Notice for Claims of Copyright Infringement
ICF is committed to complying with copyright and related laws, and requires all users of the Sites to comply with these laws. Accordingly, you may not store any material or content or use or disseminate any material or content though the Sites in any manner that constitutes an infringement of third party intellectual property rights, including rights granted by copyright law. You may not post, modify, distribute, or reproduce in any way any copyrighted material, trademarks, or other proprietary information belonging to others without obtaining the prior written consent of the owner of such proprietary rights. It is our policy to terminate use privileges of any user who repeatedly infringes the copyright rights of others upon receipt of proper notification to us by the copyright owner or the copyright owner’s legal agent.
Owners of copyrighted works or such agents, which believe that Content posted on the Sites infringes a copyright under copyright law should Contact Us with a written notice pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) (17 U.S.C. § 512(c)) setting forth information as follows: i) an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner; ii) a description of the allegedly infringing copyrighted work; iii) the URL or a specific description of the location on the Sites containing the allegedly infringing copyrighted work; iv) your address, telephone number, and email address; v) a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (vi) a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner's behalf.
Upon our receipt of a proper notice of claimed infringement under the DMCA, we, where warranted, will respond expeditiously to remove, or disable access to, the material claimed to be infringing and will follow the procedures specified in the DMCA to resolve the claim between the notifying party and the alleged infringer who provided the content in issue. Please note, however, that attachments cannot be accepted at the email address for security reasons. Accordingly, any notification of infringement submitted electronically with an attachment will not be received or processed and we advise that you send written notice with attachments to us through postal mail.

We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances arising after the date on which they are made. We refer you to our annual report on Form 10-K and quarterly reports on Form 10-Q on file with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). These documents identify important factors that could cause the actual results to differ materially from those contained in our forward-looking statements.
If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to judicial decree, such provision shall be struck and the remaining provisions shall remain valid and enforceable according to its terms. Headings are for reference purposes only and in no way define, limit, construe or describe the scope or extent of such section.
We reserve the right to seek all remedies available at law and in equity for violations of this Agreement, including without limitation the right to block access from a particular Internet address. Any failure by ICF to strictly enforce any provision of the Agreement will not operate as a waiver of that provision or any subsequent breach of that provision. The disclaimers and limitations of liability will survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement.
IT IS EXPRESSLY UNDERSTOOD AND AGREED THAT IN THE EVENT ANY REMEDY HEREUNDER IS DETERMINED TO HAVE FAILED OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE, ALL LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY AND EXCLUSIONS OF DAMAGES WILL REMAIN IN EFFECT.
