DMCA Policy and Information
Last updated November 10, 2017

SEI Communications, Inc. (“SEI Communications”) is committed to complying with U.S. copyright and related laws, and requires all customers and users of its websites and services (the “Service”) to comply with these laws. Accordingly, you may not store any material or content on, or disseminate any material or content over, the Service (or any part of the Service) in any manner that constitutes an infringement of third party intellectual property rights, including rights granted by U.S. copyright law.

SEI Communications may modify these policies from time to time, in our sole discretion. All revisions shall be effective upon posting, unless otherwise noted. You agree to be bound by any changes to the policies when you use the services after any such revision is posted. Please review the policies regularly, as it is your responsibility to abide by the current terms at all times. It is the customers responsibility to regularly check their email in order to receive possible service effecting notifications.

In appropriate circumstances, we may suspend or terminate the Service provided to any customer or user who is either found to infringe third party copyright or other intellectual property rights, or who SEI Communications, in its sole discretion, believes is infringing these rights. SEI Communications may terminate the Service at any time with or without notice for any affected customer or user.

A customer receiving multiple Infringement Notifications, as defined below, is considered a repeat infringer and could have its Service suspended or terminated in accordance with our internal Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) policy.

A repeat infringer will not receive any discount on bundled pricing due to the termination or suspension of the Service.

Owners of copyrighted works who believe that their rights under U.S. copyright law have been infringed may take advantage of certain provisions of the DMCA to report alleged infringements.

Copyright owners may report alleged infringements of their works by sending a notification of claimed infringement of these works to our designated agent. Our designated agent can be reached at:

Southeastern Indiana Rural Telephone Coop.
c/o Network Operations
14005 U.S. Highway 50
Dillsboro, IN 47018

If you believe your proprietary work has been copied and/or posted in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please submit a notification to our DMCA 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;
  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 perform one or more of the following: (1) remove material that has been identified as infringing work, (2) disable access to the identified material; and (3) provide notification (“Infringement Notification”) to the customer whose IP address was identified as the source of the infringement.

You should be aware that complainants who make false claims or misrepresentations concerning copyright infringement may be liable for damages under the DMCA.

If an affected customer or user believes in good faith that the alleged infringing works have been removed or blocked by mistake or misidentification, then that person may send a counter notification to our designated agent at the address noted above. The counter-notification must be in writing and contain the following information:

  1. an electronic or physical signature of the alleged infringer;
  2. identification of the material that was removed or disabled, and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;
  3. a statement made under penalty of perjury that the alleged infringer has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification;
  4. the alleged infringer’s name, address, telephone number, and email address;
  5. a statement that the alleged infringer consents to the jurisdiction of the federal district court for the federal district in which the address it provides is located and that it will accept service of process from the person who provided the original notification or an agent of such person.

Upon our receipt of a counter notification that satisfies the requirements of DMCA, we will provide a copy of the counter notification to the person who sent the original notification of claimed infringement and will follow the DMCA’s procedures with respect to a received counter notification.

You should be aware that there are penalties under U.S. law for a false counter-notice filed in response to a notice of copyright infringement.

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

We want to help our customers enjoy their Internet service and digital content within the confines of the law. Please refer to the DMCA F.A.Q’s on our website for additional information.
