Copyright Policy

COMPLAINTS REGARDING CONTENT POSTED ON THE VADIZA WEBSITE

Vadiza respects the intellectual property rights of others and desires to offer a website which contains no content that violates those rights. Our Terms of Service requires that information posted by Users be accurate, lawful and not in violation of the intellectual property rights of third parties. To promote these objectives, Vadiza provides a process for submission of complaints concerning content posted by our Users. Our policy and procedures are described in the sections that follow.

In accordance with our Terms of Service and these procedures, and regardless of whether Vadiza may be liable for any alleged violation of rights or inaccurate or unlawful content, Vadiza may remove or disable access to specified content appearing on the Vadiza website upon receipt of a verified notice asserting that the content infringes intellectual property rights, is inaccurate, or is otherwise unlawful. Whether or not we disable access to or remove content, Vadiza may make a good faith attempt to forward the written notification, including the complainant’s contact information, to the User who posted the content and/or take other reasonable steps to notify the User that Vadiza has received notice of an alleged violation of intellectual property rights or other content violation. The User may refute a claim by submitting a counter-notice as permitted in these procedures. Any counter-notice submitted may be provided to the complainant with the User’s contact information. Our policies and procedures for removing or disabling access to content alleged to be infringing, inaccurate or otherwise unlawful are and remain at our sole discretion. It is also our policy, in appropriate circumstances and in our discretion, to disable and/or terminate the accounts of Users, or groups as the case may be, who may infringe or repeatedly infringe the intellectual property rights of others, or who otherwise post inaccurate or unlawful content.

Please note that any notice or counter-notice you submit must be truthful and must be submitted under penalty of perjury. A false notice or counter-notice may give rise to personal liability. You may therefore want to seek the advice of legal counsel before submitting a notice or a counter-notice.
