15. Claims of Copy­right Infringe­ment

Con­tent may be made avail­able via the Site or oth­er Deere ser­vices by you or by third par­ties not with­in Deere’s con­trol. Deere is under no oblig­a­tion to scan con­tent used in con­nec­tion with the Site or oth­er Deere ser­vices for the inclu­sion of ille­gal or imper­mis­si­ble con­tent. How­ev­er, Deere respects the copy­right inter­ests of oth­ers. In Deere’s sole and exclu­sive dis­cre­tion, it is Deere’s pol­i­cy not to per­mit mate­ri­als that infringe anoth­er party’s copy­right to remain on the Site or oth­er Deere ser­vices. If you believe any mate­ri­als on the Site or oth­er Deere ser­vices infringe a copy­right, you may pro­vide Deere with writ­ten notice that com­plies with the Dig­i­tal Mil­len­ni­um Copy­right Act and at a min­i­mum con­tains:

(i) A phys­i­cal or elec­tron­ic sig­na­ture of a per­son autho­rized to act on behalf of the own­er of an exclu­sive right that is alleged­ly infringed;
(ii) Iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of the copy­right­ed work claimed to have been infringed, or, if mul­ti­ple copy­right­ed works on the Site are cov­ered by a sin­gle noti­fi­ca­tion, a rep­re­sen­ta­tive list of such works on the Site;
(iii) 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;
(iv) 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;
(v) 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
(vi) 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.

All copy­right infringe­ment notices should be sent to Deere’s des­ig­nat­ed agent as fol­lows:

Deere & Com­pa­ny
Attn: Com­pli­ance Depart­ment, DMCA Man­ag­er
One John Deere Place Moline, IL 61265
Email: DMCA@JohnDeere.com

It is Deere’s pol­i­cy to ter­mi­nate rela­tion­ships regard­ing con­tent with par­ties who repeat­ed­ly infringe the copy­rights of oth­ers.


16. For­ward Look­ing State­ments

Safe Har­bor State­ment under the Pri­vate Secu­ri­ties Lit­i­ga­tion Reform Act of 1995: Cer­tain state­ments in the Con­tent or on the Site are for­ward-look­ing state­ments that relate to future events, expec­ta­tions, trends and oper­at­ing peri­ods involve cer­tain fac­tors that are sub­ject to change, and impor­tant risks and uncer­tain­ties that could cause actu­al results to dif­fer mate­ri­al­ly. Some of these risks and uncer­tain­ties could affect par­tic­u­lar lines of busi­ness, while oth­ers could affect all of the Company’s busi­ness­es. Deere and its affil­i­ates (“Com­pa­ny”), except as required by law, under­takes no oblig­a­tion to update or revise its out­look, whether as a result of new devel­op­ments or oth­er­wise. Fur­ther infor­ma­tion con­cern­ing the Com­pa­ny and its busi­ness­es, includ­ing fac­tors that poten­tial­ly could mate­ri­al­ly affect the Company’s finan­cial results, is includ­ed in the Company’s fil­ings with the SEC includ­ing the Company’s most recent annu­al report on Form 10-K and quar­ter­ly reports on Form 10-Q.

18. Gen­er­al Pro­vi­sions

Unless more spe­cif­ic or detailed agree­ments or pro­vi­sions apply to your use, your trans­ac­tions or your inter­ac­tion with the Site, the Terms con­sti­tute the sole and entire agree­ment of the par­ties with respect to the sub­ject mat­ter con­tained here­in and super­sede all pri­or and con­tem­po­ra­ne­ous under­stand­ings, agree­ments, rep­re­sen­ta­tions and war­ranties, both writ­ten and oral, with respect to such sub­ject mat­ter. Notwith­stand­ing any lan­guage to the con­trary and sub­ject to applic­a­ble law, the Terms shall incor­po­rate by ref­er­ence the Deere pri­va­cy and data state­ment (con­sis­tent with Sec­tion 11) and any applic­a­ble finan­cial poli­cies between Deere (or its con­stituents) for any finan­cial ser­vices pro­vid­ed by Deere or its sub­sidiaries or affil­i­ates. If any use, ser­vice, or trans­ac­tion on this Site, requires an account, or a user-name iden­ti­fi­er and pass­word, such ser­vices or access may be sub­ject to addi­tion­al terms and con­di­tions that sup­ple­ment these Terms or that super­sede these Terms if there is a direct con­flict between the Terms and the addi­tion­al terms and con­di­tions.

If any term or pro­vi­sion of these Terms are invalid, ille­gal or unen­force­able in any juris­dic­tion, such inva­lid­i­ty, ille­gal­i­ty or unen­force­abil­i­ty shall not affect any oth­er term or pro­vi­sion of the Terms or inval­i­date or ren­der unen­force­able such term or pro­vi­sion in any oth­er juris­dic­tion. Any term or pro­vi­sion that is held to be invalid, ille­gal or unen­force­able by a court of com­pe­tent juris­dic­tion shall be sev­ered from the Terms and the remain­ing terms and pro­vi­sions shall remain in full force for pur­pos­es of the applic­a­ble juris­dic­tion.

To the full extent per­mit­ted under applic­a­ble law, the Terms are bind­ing on and shall inure to the ben­e­fit of the par­ties here­to and their respec­tive suc­ces­sors, heirs and assigns.

The par­ties agree that all mat­ters aris­ing out of or relat­ing to the Terms shall be gov­erned by and con­strued in accor­dance with the state and fed­er­al laws applic­a­ble in the state of New York in the Unit­ed States of Amer­i­ca with­out giv­ing effect to any choice or con­flict of law pro­vi­sion or rule (of New York or any oth­er juris­dic­tion). To the max­i­mum extent per­mit­ted under applic­a­ble law, any claim or cause of action aris­ing under these Terms shall be brought only in the fed­er­al and state courts locat­ed in New York, New York in the Unit­ed States of Amer­i­ca, and the par­ties here­by con­sent to the exclu­sive juris­dic­tion of such courts. How­ev­er, any claim aris­ing under con­sumer pro­tec­tion laws, includ­ing but not lim­it­ed to class action claims, shall be resolved by arbi­tra­tion in New York in the Unit­ed States of Amer­i­ca in accor­dance with the then-cur­rent rules of the Amer­i­can Arbi­tra­tion Asso­ci­a­tion by one or more arbi­tra­tors appoint­ed in accor­dance with the above rules. Any award ren­dered in the arbi­tra­tion pro­ceed­ing will be final and bind­ing upon the par­ties. Any judg­ment or award of the arbi­tra­tion may be entered in and enforced in any court of com­pe­tent juris­dic­tion. You agree not to insti­tute any claims against the Deere Par­ties except as pro­vid­ed express­ly in the Terms.
