You hereby authorize National Creative Registry to destroy/delete registered files without notice to you on the expiration of ten years from the registration date hereof. You can however renew the registration for an additional term of ten years at any time before the expiration of the first ten year period if you pay the then applicable renewal fee. THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO PERMANENT REGISTRATIONS WHICH NEVER EXPIRE.

Storage & Safekeeping:
ProtectRite registration is a service. Its purpose is to help in establishing the completion date and the claim to authorship/creation of a property. ProtectRite registration is not a formal copyright and does not provide statutory protections. National Creative Registry’s ProtectRite service assumes that you have kept, and you acknowledge that you have kept, a copy of this registration. Although ProtectRite will exercise reasonable care to protect the registration file and the record of registration, it accepts no responsibility for loss, corruption, or destruction of the submitted file or the registration records. In the unlikely event that the manuscript file is destroyed, damaged, corrupted, or lost, due to National Creative Registry's failure to exercise reasonable care or by reason of any other cause whatsoever, it is agreed and understood that the liquidated damages for the loss of the manuscript is and shall be $1.00. National Creative Registry encrypts and stores registration files on three separate systems to insure redundancy. We have never lost a registration! National Creative Registry stores files in the format submitted. IT IS THE REGISTRANT'S RESPONSIBILITY TO MAINTAIN ANY NEEDED SOFTWARE OR LICENSES TO ACCESS ANY GIVEN FILE'S CONTENTS IN THE FUTURE.

Emergency Copy or Withdrawal:
Requests for copies or withdrawal of registered material can only be made by the original registrant in the form of a notarized letter or e-mail from the account listed upon the registration. It is understood that registrant will submit registrations using his/her legal name. If registration is in the names of more than one individual, notarized letters must be submitted by each registrant to withdraw registration. If a registrant is deceased, proof of death and written consent of his/her representatives or heirs must be submitted.
