Thank you for visiting the website of Quality Filth L.L.C. (“Quality Filth”).

Quality Filth is a limited liability company whose mission is to produce refreshing political satire for free thinkers bored with the right-left tennis match. As such, all content on this website is satirical in nature, as more fully provided below.

These Terms of Use and our Privacy Policy set forth the conditions under which you may access and use the website. By accessing and using the website, you agree to be bound by our Terms of Use and our Privacy Policy then in effect and by all applicable law.

We reserve the right to terminate or limit your access to the website for any violation of the Terms of Use or our Privacy Policy, or for any other reason, in our sole discretion.

The original content we create on the website, including satirical interviews and skits, is complete bullshit, which means it is all made up. As a result, the content does not represent an accurate factual representation of true to life events or the public figures we make fun of in the content. As such, you should not rely on any original satirical content we create on our website.

In addition to original satirical content, our website may contain (a) User Generated Content (defined below) provided by other users, (b) links to information on other sites operated by third parties, such as The New York Times or The Wall Street Journal, (c) advertisements and/or sponsorships provided by third parties, and (d) stores, services, or product lines offered by third parties ((a), (b), (c), and (d) are collectively, “Third-Party Materials”). These Third Party Materials are provided only as a convenience to you. We do not necessarily endorse any of these Third Party Materials and do not intend to imply any association between Quality Filth and the sources of such Materials. We have no control over and are not responsible and assume no liability for any Third-Party Materials or the applicable third parties, including their acts or omissions. We do not review, approve, endorse, guarantee, warrant, or make any representations with respect to Third-Party Materials or the applicable third parties. For example, we do not guarantee, warrant or represent that the Third-Party Materials are accurate, legal and/or inoffensive or that these third party sites do not contain viruses or other features that may adversely affect your computer. You use all Third Party Materials and interact with such third parties at your own risk. We are not obligated to be involved in any disputes between you and any such third parties. When you leave our site, our Terms and Conditions (including our Privacy Policy) no longer govern. You should carefully review the applicable third party privacy statements and other terms and conditions of use.

Quality Filth is committed to complying with U.S. copyright and related laws, and requires all customers and users of the Service to comply with these laws. Owners of copyrighted works who believe that their rights under U.S. copyright law have been infringed may take advantage of certain provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) to report alleged infringements.

  1. your physical or electronic signature or that of a person authorized to act on behalf of you, the purported owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
  2. identification of the copyright or work claimed to have been infringed, or a multiple copyrighted work at a single online site or covered by a single notification, or a representative list of such works at that site;
  3. 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;
  4. information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact you, the complaining party, or the person authorized to act on your behalf;
  5. a statement that you, the complaining party, have a good faith belief that the use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by you the copyright owner, your agent, or the law; and
  6. 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 you, the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. Quality Filth’s Copyright Agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement on or relating to the website can be reached by email at info@qualityfilth.com

Quality Filth will respond expeditiously to either directly or indirectly (i) remove the allegedly infringing work(s) stored on the website or (ii) disable access to the work(s). Quality Filth will also notify the affected customer or user of the Service of the removal or disabling of access to the work(s). Copyright owners may use their own notification of claimed infringement form that satisfies the requirements of Section 512(c)(3) of the U.S. Copyright Act. Under the DMCA, anyone who knowingly makes misrepresentations regarding alleged copyright infringement may be liable to Quality Filth, the alleged infringer, and the affected copyright owner for any damages incurred in connection with the removal, blocking, or replacement of allegedly infringing material.

If you receive a notification of alleged infringement as described above, and you believe in good faith that the allegedly infringing works have been removed or blocked by mistake or misidentification, then you may send a counter notification to Quality Filth. Upon Quality Filth’s receipt of a counter notification that satisfies the DMCA requirements, Quality Filth will provide a copy of the counter notification to the person who sent the original notification of claimed infringement and will follow the DMCA’s procedures with respect to a received counter notification.
