Harness respects the intellectual property rights of others and asks that the people who use the Site do the same.

If you believe in good faith that materials available on the Site infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send Harness a notice requesting that we remove the material or block access to it. If you believe in good faith that someone has wrongly filed a notice of copyright infringement against you, the DMCA permits you to send Harness a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA. See http://www.copyright.gov/ for details.

14. GENERAL

The Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and Harness with respect to your use of this Site and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral or written, between you and Harness with respect to this Site.

If any provision of the Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Terms remain in full force and effect. A party may only waive its rights under these Terms, by a written document executed by both parties. Any failure to enforce any provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver thereof or of any other provision hereof. You may not assign, transfer or sublicense any or all of your rights or obligations under these Terms without Harness’ express prior written consent. No provision of these Terms is intended for the benefit of any third party, and the parties do not intend that any provision should be enforceable by a third party either under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 or otherwise.
