However, should VOICES notify you of any allegation that you have infringed the intellectual property rights of another pursuant to section 512 of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and you submit a counter-notice, VOICES reserves the right to send, and you agree that VOICES has your consent to send, a copy of the counter-notice you submit to the original complaining party.
We collect non-personally identifiable information about you in a number of ways, including tracking your activities through your IP address, computer settings, most-recently visited URL or from your mobile or other devices through which you access and use our services.
