In the event that we become aware that we have collected personal information from any child, we will dispose of that information in accordance with COPPA and other applicable laws and regulations. If you are a parent or guardian and you believe that your child under the age of 13 has provided us with personal information without COPPA-required consent, please contact us via the Contact JewishBoston page.

You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the notice requirements of the DMCA, your notice may not be valid.
Counter Notification: If you believe that any user content of yours that was removed is not infringing, or that you have the appropriate rights from the copyright owner or third party, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the material in your user content, you may send a counter notification containing the following information to the Copyright Agent:
- your physical or electronic signature
- identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled
- a statement (under penalty of perjury) that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or a misidentification of the material

In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable law, CJP may, in appropriate circumstances, terminate access, at CJP’s sole discretion, of any user that we find to be a repeat infringer of others’ copyrights. CJP may also, in its sole discretion, limit or fully terminate access to the Sites of any user infringing the intellectual property rights of others, regardless of whether such user is a repeat offender or not.
