6. Third-Party Links.
Third-party links on this Site may direct you to third-party websites ("Third-Party Sites") that are not affiliated with AEO or that may be located in different countries, and those websites and the products sold on those websites are likely to be subject to the originating country's regulatory or product safety requirements.

We have not reviewed all of the Third-Party Sites linked to this Site and are not responsible for the content of or any products or services offered on such Third-Party Sites, and AEO is therefore not liable for any harm or damages related to the purchase or use of goods, services, resources, content, or any other transactions made in connection with any Third-Party Sites ("Third-Party Products"). Complaints, claims, concerns, or questions regarding Third-Party Products should be directed to the third party.

You agree that we have the right, but not the obligation, to monitor, edit, disclose, refuse to post, or remove at any time, for any reason in our sole discretion, any material and content anywhere on this Site. Notwithstanding this right, we do not and cannot review all materials submitted to this Site. If notified, we may investigate an allegation that content transmitted to us is in violation of these Terms and determine whether to have the communication removed. However, we are under no obligation to remove content and assume no responsibility or liability arising from or relating to any actions or content transmitted by or between you or any third party within or outside of this Site, including, but not limited to, any error, defamation, libel, slander, omission, falsehood, obscenity, pornography, profanity, danger, or inaccuracy contained therein.
We may, in appropriate circumstances and at our sole discretion, terminate the access of users who infringe the copyright rights of others.
Pursuant to our rights under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA"), 17 U.S.C. § 512, we have designated a copyright agent to receive copyright infringement notices for claims of infringement related to materials found on this Site. Our copyright agent is:
American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. Attention: Rebecca Gibbs Re: DMCA Complaint 77 Hot Metal Street Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, 15203 Email: copyrightalert@AE.com Telephone: (412) 432-3300
To be effective, your infringement notification must include the following:
- 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 or content that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or have access disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material;
- Information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact you, including address, telephone number and email address where you may be contacted;
- A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by you, your agent, or the law (e.g. I 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"); and
- A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and, under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed (e.g. "The information in this notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, I swear that I am the copyright owner or that I am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.").
Upon receipt of the written notification containing the information as outlined above:
- AEO will remove or disable access to the content that is alleged to be infringing;
- AEO will forward the written notification to the alleged infringer; and
- AEO will take reasonable steps to promptly notify the alleged infringer that we have removed or disabled access to the content.
8. DMCA Infringement Counter Notification.
Pursuant to the DMCA, after the alleged infringer receives a notice of infringement from AEO, the alleged infringer will have the opportunity to respond to AEO with a counter notification ("Counter Notification"). To be effective, a Counter Notification must be a written communication provided to AEO's designated copyright agent, and must include the following:
- A physical or electronic signature of the subscriber;
- Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access disabled;
- A statement that under penalty of perjury that the material was removed by mistake or misidentification (e.g. "I swear under penalty of perjury that it is my good faith belief that the material identified above was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled"); and
- The subscriber's name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that the subscriber consents to the jurisdiction of the federal district court for the judicial district in which the subscriber address is located, or if the subscriber's address is outside of the United States, or any judicial district in which AEO may be found, and that the subscriber will accept service of process from the person who provided notification or an agent of such person.
Upon the copyright agent's receipt of a Counter Notification containing the information as outlined above, the DMCA provides that the removed material will be restored or access re-enabled and we will comply with this requirement as required by law, provided that the designated agent has not received notice from the original complaining party that an action has been filed seeking a court order to restrain the subscriber from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on our network.

The arbitral tribunal has no power to consider the enforceability of this class arbitration waiver and any challenge to the class arbitration waiver may only be raised in a court of competent jurisdiction.

If any provision of these Terms shall be held unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. These Terms, together with our Privacy Notice, constitute the entire agreement between the parties pertaining to the subject matter hereof and supersedes in their entirety any and all written or oral agreements previously existing between the parties with respect to such subject matter.
