TECPOLUK Policy on Intellectual Property Rights
At TECPOLUK we respect intellectual property rights – OUR own intellectual property rights, our partners and other unrelated to TECPOLUK parties.
TECPOLUK does not permit of any kind copyright infringing activities and infringement of intellectual property rights on our websites, software, products, or services related collectively to “the Sites and Software owned and/or managed by TECPOLUK”. All such uses of the Sites and Software are violations of our EULA as our Acceptable Use Policy. As with any system where user-contributed content (“User Generated Content”) is present, we do not have the technological means to know/manage in advance/thereafter or to determine whether any given content is used with permission, under license, or is a ‘fair use’.
To the extent technically feasible, where infringing content is found and identified on a server or other computer(s) directly controlled by TECPOLUK, we will endeavour to assist copyright holders in protecting their rights under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
Procedure for Filing a Claim of Infringement Under the DMCA (“DMCA Take-Down Notices”)
If you are a copyright owner or an authorized agent of such an owner with a good faith belief that any content used on our Websites or Software or included as part of any User Generated Content infringes upon your copyrights, you may submit a notification pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) by providing our Copyright Agent with the following information in writing (see 17 U.S.C § 512(c)(3) for further detail):
You should send the Take Down Notice to TECPOLUK designated Copyright Agent, authorized to receive notifications of claimed infringement:
Copyright Infringement Agent
155 Greenham Road
Please be aware:
Only verified DMCA Take-Down Notices should go to the designated Copyright Agent; any other feedback, comments, requests for technical support, and other communications should be directed to TECPOLUK. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements herein stated your DMCA Take Down Notice may not be valid and may not achieve the desired result. DMCA Take-Down Notices that do not substantially comply with the foregoing requirements, which do not provide enough information for the allegedly infringing content to be located, or which lack the requirement verification may not receive a reply.
TECPOLUK understands that copyright holders are not always correct in their beliefs regarding infringement, even when requesting ‘takedowns’ in good faith under the DMCA. If you believe that your content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and/or use the material in your content, you may send a Counter-Notice containing the following information to the Designated Copyright Agent (see above):
If a Counter-Notice is received by the Copyright Agent, TECPOLUK may send a copy of the Counter-Notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the user, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the Counter-Notice, at TECPOLUK sole discretion.
Please note, this form has been provided for individuals or businesses concerned about possible Copyright Infringement. Unrelated queries will not be replied to.
Requests that are not related to the “Take Down” aspect will not receive our response.
