COPYRIGHT & TRADEMARK POLICY

At Communic8, we take copyright and trademark infringement seriously and we do our upmost to offer a platform which contains no content that violates those rights. We respect the intellectual property rights of others and fully expect that our Members do the same. Our Terms of Use and Acceptable Use Policy requires that content used by our Members be accurate, lawful and not in violation of the rights of third parties.

To promote these objectives, if you believe that one our members is unfairly using your intellectual property through our services, we want to know about it. Please send a notice of the alleged infringement to our organisation and our designated agent will further investigate. Here is the contact information for this agent:

Please note that whether or not we remove a Member’s access to our Platform or remove the offending content, we make a good faith attempt to notify the alleged offending Member of the complainant’s request and we may also provide your contact information. We will take reasonable steps to notify the Member that Communic8 has received notice of an alleged violation of intellectual property rights or other content violation. It will be at our discretion to remove the offending content or terminate the Member account which infringed or repeatedly infringed the rights of others or otherwise post inappropriate or unlawful content.

Furthermore, please note that any notice or counter-notice you submit must be truthful and will be submitted under penalty of perjury. A false notice or counter-notice may give rise to personal liability. You may want to consider seeking legal counsel before submitting your notice or counter-notice.

Before sending us a notice, you may want to contact the person or organization who posted or used the content you believe infringes your rights. You may be able to resolve the issue directly without having to contact Communic8.
