Repeat Infringer Policy.

OHe respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users to do the same. In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and other applicable law, OHe has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances and at its sole discretion, the account of any users who are deemed to be repeat infringers.

Trademarks.

The Operation Hawkeye logo, the name Operation Hawkeye and any other product or service name or slogan contained in the Website are trademarks of OHe, its corporate partners, licensors, or other respective owners, and may not be copied, imitated or used, in whole or in part, without the prior written permission of OHe or the applicable trademark holder. You may not use any metatags or any other “hidden text” using “Operation Hawkeye,” or any other name, trademark or product or service name of OHe without our prior written permission. Unless specifically stated otherwise, reference to any products, services, or other information, by trade name, trademark, manufacturer, supplier or otherwise does not constitute or imply endorsement, sponsorship or recommendation thereof by us.

Donations.

Any Website user may become a donor (“Donor”) by pledging a donation to OHe by using the donation tool on this Website. You acknowledge and agree that you are under no obligation to become a Donor or to pledge a donation and that you will be solely responsible for any decision to become a Donor.

OHe Mail

Operation Hawkeye’s mail system allows you to send a message to the families of the fallen. You may use the card above to send condolences or words of goodwill to the families of the fallen. Bearing in mind that the families come from divese backgrounds and value their privacy, you will refrain from sending messages regarding political matters, religious themes or sentiments, holiday or seasonal sentiments, using inappropriate language, and providing or requesting personal contact information.

You acknowledge that OHe may or may not pre-screen OHe Mail, but that OHe and its designees shall have the right (but not the obligation) in their sole discretion to pre-screen, refuse, or remove any message that is available via OHe Mail. Without limiting the foregoing, OHe and its designees shall have the right to remove any OHe Mail content that violates these Terms or is otherwise objectionable. You acknowledge, consent and agree that OHe may access, preserve and disclose your account information if required to do so by law or in a good faith belief that such access preservation or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (i) comply with legal process; (ii) enforce these Terms; (iii) respond to claims that any OHe Mail content violates the rights of third parties; or (iv) protect the rights, property or personal safety of OHe, its users and the public. You hereby release OHe from any and all claims, damages, liabilities and causes of action arising out of such authorized disclosure of personal information.

Feedback.

Any comments or materials sent to OHe (via any medium including e-mail and regular mail) including feedback data, such as questions, ideas, comments, suggestions, or the like regarding this Website or any other products or programs of OHe (collectively “Feedback”), shall be deemed to be non-confidential and shall become the sole property of OHe. You hereby assign all rights in the Feedback to OHe, and OHe shall have no obligation of any kind with respect to such Feedback. Without limiting the foregoing, OHe shall be free to reproduce, use, disclose, exhibit, display, transform, create derivative works and distribute the Feedback to others without limitation, without acknowledgment or compensation to you. Further, you expressly waive any moral rights you may have in such Feedback.
