By accessing the BeautyCareers.com web site (“Website”) and any related services provided by Empire (“Services”), you are agreeing that you have read the Agreement and agree to be bound by the Agreement and all applicable laws and regulations. If you do not understand or agree to be bound by any portion of the Agreement, you are prohibited from using or accessing the Website and Services.

We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to change the Agreement from time to time, without prior notice. You should review this Agreement each time you access our Website or Services. Your access to our Website or Services is deemed to be your acceptance of this Agreement, and any changes thereto.

If you are accessing or using our Website or Services on behalf of any business, organization, or other entity of any kind, you represent and warrant that you are authorized (a) to accept these terms on its behalf and (b) to bind such business, organization, or entity to the Agreement.

  • circumvent, disable, or otherwise interfere with security related features of the Services or any other features that prevent or restrict the use or copying of any materials; or
  • attempt to interfere with or disrupt access to or use of our Website or Services by any user, processor, host, or network, including, without limitation, by submitting a virus, worm, Trojan horse, or other malicious code; or
  • attempt to probe, scan, or test the vulnerability of our Website or breach any implemented security or authentication measures, regardless of your motives or intent; or

  • impersonate or misrepresent your affiliation with any person or entity;
  • attempt to or actually disrupt, impair, interfere with, alter, or modify our Website or Services, or any information, data, or materials posted and/or displayed by Empire.

The license granted in this Section shall automatically terminate if you violate any of the above restrictions and may be terminated by Empire at any time in its sole discretion. Upon terminating your viewing of materials or upon the termination of this license, you must destroy any downloaded materials in your possession, whether in electronic or printed format.

Except as expressly provided, all rights are reserved.

9. Notice and Takedown Procedure

Empire is committed to resolving any copyright infringement issues according to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act as outlined in this Notice and Takedown Procedure.

(a) Copyright Infringement Notification

To file a copyright infringement notification with us, you will need to send a written communication that includes substantially the following (please consult your legal counsel or see Section 512(c)(3) of title 17 of the United States Code (“Copyright Act”) to confirm these requirements):

  • A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
  • Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
  • 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. Providing URLs to the work(s) and track titles of the work(s) as displayed at those URLs in the body of an email is the best way to help us locate content quickly
  • Information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted;
  • A statement that the complaining party has 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; and
  • A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

Such written notice should be sent to our designated agent by email to:

privacy@beautycareer.com, Subject: Empire DMCA Copyright Infringement Notification

or written communication to:

EMPIRE DMCA Complaints
ATTN: Copyright Infringement Notification
396 Pottsville / St Clair Hwy
Pottsville, PA 17901

After we receive your copyright infringement notification, we will expeditiously take down the work(s).

If applicable, we will attempt to notify the alleged infringer of the copyright infringement notification and point them to the procedure for counter-notification. We will not share your personal information with the alleged infringer. If we receive a relevant counter-notification from the alleged infringer, we will forward it to you. You will have ten (10) days to notify us that you have filed an action seeking a court order to restrain the alleged infringer from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on Empire’s Website or Services. If we receive such a notification, we will not restore the material. If we do not receive such notification, we may reinstate the material.

Please also note that under Section 512(f) of the Copyright Act, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability. Information provided in this legal notice may be forwarded to the person who provided the allegedly infringing content.

(b) Counter-Notification

The process for counter-notifications is governed by Section 512(g) of the Copyright Act: http://www.copyright.gov/legislation/dmca.pdf

To file a counter notification with us, you must provide a written communication that sets forth the items specified below. Please note that under Section 512(f) of the Copyright Act, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability. Please also be advised that we enforce a policy that provides for the termination in appropriate circumstances of subscribers who are repeat infringers. Accordingly, if you are not sure whether certain material infringes the copyrights of others, we suggest that you first contact an attorney. Counter notifications should be sent to the email or postal address identified above.

After we receive your counter-notification, we will forward it to the party who submitted the original claim of copyright infringement. Please note that when we forward the counter-notification, it includes your personal information. By submitting a counter-notification, you consent to having your information revealed in this way. We will not forward the counter-notification to any party other than the original claimant.

After we send out the counter-notification, the claimant must then notify us within 10 days that he or she has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain you from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on Empire’s Website or Services. If we receive such notification we will be unable to restore the material. If we do not receive such notification, we may reinstate the material.

Please note that under Section 512(f) of the Copyright Act, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability. Please also be advised that we enforce a policy that provides for the termination in appropriate circumstances of subscribers who are repeat infringers.

14. Dispute Resolution

Empire intends to resolve any and all disputes that may arise between it and its End Users in a cost-effective and non-disruptive manner, preferably without the time and expense of litigation. Toward this end, you agree to the following dispute resolution procedure. If you are unable to resolve any dispute in the ordinary course of business, you shall send a written notice to Empire in which you outline the issues in dispute, enclose any relevant documents, and state the requested relief. Empire shall respond within ten (10) business days with identical information from its perspective. You and a representative of Empire shall meet or communicate electronically within ten (10) business days of the delivery of the response, and as often as you and Empire mutually deem necessary or desirable thereafter, in an attempt to resolve the matter. If, within sixty (60) days of the first communication, you and Empire fail to resolve the matter, you may then proceed to litigation in the forum described in Section 11 above.

15. End User Submissions and End User’s Grant of Limited Licensed

In operating our Website and providing our Services, Empire does not solicit nor does it wish to receive any confidential, secret or proprietary information or other material from you through the Website, the Services, our mail and e-mail addresses, or in any other way. Any information or material submitted or sent to Empire will be deemed not to be confidential or secret. By submitting or sending information or other material to Empire you represent and warrant that the information is accurate, truthful and original to you and that no other party has any rights to the material.

By communicating with Empire, including submitting or sending content to us, you grant Empire the royalty-free, unrestricted, world-wide, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, and fully sublicensable right and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, perform and display such content (in whole or part), including any information, suggestions, ideas, drawings or concepts contained in such content, worldwide and/or to incorporate it in other works in any form, media, or technology now known or later developed. Such license includes incorporating the content, in whole or in part, into a feature of the Website or Services. You will remain responsible for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality, decency, or any other aspect of such submitted material, including any content or part thereof, or other communication to Empire. You also warrant that any "moral rights" in such content are waived.

16. Miscellaneous

If any part of the Agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth above, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of the Agreement shall continue in effect.

No failure or delay in enforcing any provision, exercising any option, or requiring performance, shall be construed to be a waiver of that or any other right in connection with the Agreement.

No action arising out of this Agreement or your access to or use of our Website or Services, regardless of form or the basis of the claim, may be brought by you more than one (1) year after the cause of action has arisen (or if multiple causes, from the date the first such cause arose) and you hereby waive any longer statute of limitations that may be permitted by law.

If Empire does take any legal action against you as a result of your violation of the Agreement, Empire will be entitled to recover from you, and you agree to pay, all reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs of such action, in addition to any other relief granted to Empire. You agree that Empire will not be liable to you or to any third party for termination of your access to, or use of, any of our Website or Services as a result of any violation of the Agreement or for any reason at all.

You may not assign, by operation of law or otherwise, any rights or delegate any duties under the Agreement to any third party without prior written consent by Empire. Any purported assignment lacking such consent will be void at its inception. Empire may assign all or part of its rights and/or delegate all or part of its duties under the Agreement to any party, at any time, and in its sole discretion, upon notice of assignment by posting such notice on our Website or through our Services.
