DMCA policy

DMCA policy

This DMCA Policy (Digital Millennium Copyright Act Policy) applies to the website and related products and services. It outlines how this Website operator addresses copyright infringement notifications and how you may submit a copyright infringement complaint.

Protection of intellectual property is of utmost importance to us, and we ask our users and their authorized agents to do the same. Accordingly, our Policy is to expeditiously respond to clear notifications of alleged copyright infringement that comply with the United States Digital Millennium (DMCA Policy) Copyright Act of 1998.

What to consider before submitting a copyright complaint

Before submitting a copyright complaint, consider whether the use could be regarded as fair. Fair use states that brief excerpts of copyrighted material may, under certain circumstances, quote verbatim for purposes such as criticism, news reporting, teaching, and research, without permission or payment to the copyright holder.

Please note that if you are unsure whether the material you report is infringing, you may contact an attorney before filing a notification. The DMCA requires you to provide your personal information in the copyright infringement notification. If you are concerned about the privacy of your personal information, consider hiring an agent to report infringing material for you.

Notifications of infringement

Filing a DMCA complaint is the start of a pre-defined legal process. First, your complaint will be reviewed for accuracy, validity, and completeness. Our response may include removing or restricting access to the allegedly infringing material.

Suppose we remove or restrict access to materials or terminate an account in response to a Notification of alleged infringement. In that case, we will make a reasonable effort to contact the affected user with information concerning the removal or restriction of access. In addition, the process described in this Policy does not limit our ability to pursue any other remedies we may have to address suspected infringement.

Changes and amendments

We reserve the right to modify this Policy or its terms related to the Website and Services at any time at our discretion. When we do, we will send you an email to notify you. We may also provide notice to you in other ways at our discretion, such as through the contact information you have provided.

An updated version of this Policy will be effective immediately upon posting the revised Policy unless otherwise specified. Your continued use of the Website and Services after the revised Policy’s effective date (or other act specified at that time) will constitute your consent to those changes.
