Southeastern Indiana Rural Telephone Coop.
c/o Network Operations

Dillsboro, IN 47018

If you believe your proprietary work has been copied and/or posted on the Sites in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please contact our designated agent with the following information:

  1. an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest;
  2. a description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed;
  3. a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Sites;
  4. your address, telephone number, and email address;
  5. a written 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
  6. 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 are authorized to act on the copyright owner's behalf.
Upon our receipt of a satisfactory notice of claimed infringement, SEI Communications will respond either directly or indirectly to remove the allegedly infringing work from the Services or disable access to the work.

In all events, you expressly agree that SEI Communications will not be a party to any disputes or lawsuits regarding alleged copyright infringement.
