Copyright Policy

1. Complaints regarding content posted on the GoldCleats website.

The GoldCleats user agreement requires our members and users to be accurate and lawful when posting information and that they do not violate the intellectual property rights of third parties. Our objective is to make GoldCleats a website free of intellectual property rights violations by making sure that we preclude any content that violates such rights. To achieve this objective, we have devised a process that allows individuals to submit complaints concerning any content posted by our members and users.

In accordance with our user agreement, and regardless of whether GoldCleats may be liable for any alleged violation of intellectual property rights or inaccurate or unlawful content, GoldCleats may remove or disable access to specified content appearing on the GoldCleats 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, GoldCleats 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 GoldCleats 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 individual users, or groups, who may infringe or repeatedly infringe the intellectual property rights of others, or who otherwise post inaccurate or unlawful content.

If you choose to request removal of content by submitting an infringement notification, please remember that you are initiating a legal process. Do not make false claims. A false notice or counter-notice may give rise to personal liability or other legal consequences. You may therefore want to seek the advice of legal counsel before submitting a notice or a counter-notice.
