Notice And Take-Down Procedures
If GOC Webhosting is notified of a credible claim of copyright infringement, or otherwise becomes aware of facts and circumstances from which infringement is apparent, it will respond expeditiously by removing, or disabling access to, the material that is potentially infringing pursuant to the DMCA
If you receive a DMCA notification and believe, upon good faith, that the content was removed or disabled in error, you may provide a counter-notice by notifying us in writing at the designated agent emailing [email protected], and providing the following information:
- A physical or electronic signature (type your full name).
- Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled.
- A statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.
- Your name, mailing address, and telephone number, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal district court for the judicial district in which your address is located, or if your address is outside of the U.S., for any judicial district in which GOC Webhosting may be found, and that you will accept service of process from the Complainant who provided the copyright notification or an agent of such Complainant.
- Upon receipt of a counter-notice, GOC Webhosting shall promptly forward a copy to the Complainant and inform Complainant that it will replace the removed material or cease disabling access to it in ten (10) business days. GOC Webhosting may replace the removed material and cease disabling access to it in not less than ten (10) business days and no more than fourteen (14), business days following receipt of the counter-notice unless GOC Webhosting first receives notice from Complainant that it has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain the GOC Webhosting customer from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on GOC Webhosting’s web hosting site.
Please note and understand before submitting a counter-notice: Under Section 512(f) of the DMCA, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability.
Under appropriate circumstances, GOC Webhosting may, in its discretion, terminate the accounts of customers who are repeat infringers.
