Please carefully read these Copyright Policy and our Legal Notice, each of which is incorporated by reference into these Terms.
ExploreBees respects the intellectual property rights of others and we expect people on ExploreBees to do the same. It’s our policy—in appropriate circumstances and at our discretion—to disable or terminate the accounts of people who repeatedly infringe or are repeatedly charged with infringing copyrights or other intellectual property rights.
In keeping with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, which you can read at The Copyright Act, 2012, we’ll respond quickly to claims of copyright infringement on ExploreBees that are reported to our designated copyright agent, identified below.
If you’re a copyright owner or authorized to act on behalf of one, you can report alleged copyright infringements on ExploreBees by completing the DMCA Notice of Alleged Infringement and sending it to our designated copyright agent.
When we get your DMCA notice, we’ll take whatever action we think is appropriate, which may include removing the reported content from ExploreBees.
If we remove content in response to a DMCA notice, we may notify the person who saved it on ExploreBees so they have the opportunity to send a counter-notice. We may also send a complete copy of the notice to others, as appropriate.
To submit a DMCA notice, please send the following information to our designated copyright agent:
Send your completed DMCA notice to: firstname.lastname@example.org
*Note: This email address should only be used for copyright complaints. If you need to get in touch with us for any other reason, please visit our Help Center.
If you’ve got a notification that one of your listings has been removed for a copyright complaint, it means the content owner asked us to remove it. If you want us to forward the information from the copyright complaint notification, just email us at email@example.com to let us know (we may remove some personal contact information).
If your account gets too many copyright complaints, we may disable your account altogether.
If you think we made a mistake removing your listings, you can file a counter-notice. When we get a valid counter-notice, we’ll remove the complaint from your account's record.
Note: There are legal and financial consequences for fraudulent or bad faith counter-notices. Before submitting a counter-notice, make sure you have a good faith belief that we removed the content in error, and that you understand the repercussions of submitting a false claim.
If your content is removed as the result of a copyright takedown notice, you’ll receive instructions about how to file a counter-notice in the email notification we send you. Please note that you should only submit a counter-notice if you believe that the content was removed because of a mistake or misidentification.
When we receive a valid counter-notice, we’ll remove the complaint from your account’s record. If you asked us to reinstate the content that was removed, we will forward your counter-notice to the party that reported that content. The information they receive will include your contact information, which they may use to contact you directly.
If we provide your counter-notice to the party that reported the content, and they do not notify us that they have filed a court action seeking an order to keep the content down, we will reinstate the content. This process can take up to 14 business days.
