Digital Millennium Copyright Act Policy

S&T respects the intellectual property rights of third parties and is committed to complying with U.S. copyright laws. As set out in the Acceptable Use Policy for broadband Internet access service, S&T’s customers are required to comply with U.S. copyright law, and are prohibited from using the service to upload, post, publish, transmit, reproduce, download, or distribute material in violation of copyright law. 

In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) and other applicable laws, it is the policy of S&T to terminate, in appropriate circumstances, the broadband Internet access service provided to any customer or account holder who is deemed to be a repeat infringer of copyrights. In addition, S&T will suspend the service of any user or account holder, and take other interim actions, if S&T, in its sole judgment, believes that circumstances relating to an infringement of third party intellectual property rights warrant such action. Termination and suspension of service may occur with or without notice. 

S&T complies with the DMCA by providing a way for copyrighted owners to notify S&T about alleged infringements and for S&T to inform customers about such notices. Owners of copyrighted material may notify S&T of alleged infringement of such works using the notice procedure provided under the DMCA. S&T will respond to notices that comply with DMCA statutory requirements. Notifications of alleged infringement should be sent to S&T’s DMCA Designated Agent using the following contact information:
