Suspension of Use
U.S. Copyright Alleged Infringement
If you believe that content on the Website or other related activity connected with the Website constitutes copyright infringement, please contact us at 323-888-1973.
Your notice must comply with the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. Sec. 512(c)(3) by meeting the following requirements:
- A physical or electronic signature of the copyright owner or authorized persons acting on behalf of the owner;
- Identification of the copyrighted material claimed to have been infringed, or, if more than one works at a single Website are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that Website;
- Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material;
- Your contact information at which we can sufficiently reach you, such as name, address, telephone number, and, if available, an email address
- A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;

The U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. Sec. 512(c)(3) can be accessed in full here.
You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Elite Lighting Corporation and its subsidiaries, affiliates, employees, agents, partners, vendors, legal representatives, contractors, and successors from any liability, damages, costs and expenses, of any nature, known and unknown, to third parties, arising or resulting from or related to any violation of these Terms or your misuse of this Website.
Termination of Use
These Terms shall not be assignable by you, either in whole or in part. Elite Lighting Corporation reserves the right to assign its rights and obligations under these Terms.
The parties to these Terms agree that a mandatory binding arbitration on an individual basis shall be the only resolution for any and all disputes and claims that cannot be rectified informally and that involve your use of the Website or these Terms. The parties agree that the Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to arbitrations under these terms and conditions (despite any other choice of law provision).
Class Action Waiver
As permitted by applicable law, arbitration shall proceed solely on an individual basis, to the fullest extent, without the right for any disputes to be arbitrated on a class action basis or on bases involving claims brought forth by an alleged representative on behalf of others. Consolidation of disputes is prohibited, unless all parties agree to the consolidation in writing. In relation to issues or claims in any dispute with anyone who is not a named party to the arbitration, no arbitration award or decision will have any preclusive effect. Should this Class Action Waiver be deemed inoperative, any putative class action may only proceed in a court of competent jurisdiction without a jury and not in arbitration.
Waiver of Rights
In agreeing to arbitration, all parties submit to agree to the waiving of their rights to alternative resolution processes, including but not limited to a court action or administrative proceeding, to settle their disputes. It must be noted that arbitration omits a judge or jury, and review of an arbitrator’s decision is very limited. Elite Lighting and any parties, whether a claim will be resolved in arbitration or in court, both waive any right to a jury trial involving any claims or disputes.
Governing Law of the State of California
The laws of the State of California shall govern these Terms in all respects without activating its conflicts of law provisions. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid, such provision shall be struck and the remaining provisions shall be enforced.
Headings are for reference purposes only and in no way define, limit, or describe the scope of such section. Elite Lighting’s omission of reacting to a breach by anyone does not invalidate or waive its right to take action in relation to subsequent or similar breaches.
These Terms dictate the agreement and understanding between the Website visitor and Elite Lighting and supersede any preceding understanding, written or oral.
