Smart Search respects third party’s copyrights, and it is our policy to respond to all notifications about copyrights infringement as established by applicable regulations. Once the notification complying with these Guidelines is received, Smart Search may remove or disable access to the allegedly infringing material or adopt such further action that at our discretion may be appropriate, including disabling of links or removal of all links belonging to specific domain from Smart Search or instead of providing direct access to files, Smart Search may provide access to page on which the corresponding files are available like the search engines do. When taking such measures, Smart Search may attempt to contact the party that posted the content so that such party may make any statement he/she deems appropriate according to applicable regulations.
Smart Search will follow the procedures provided by applicable regulations to ensure compliance with copyrights. When a proper notification complying with the conditions above is received, Smart Search will remove or disable access to infringing materials as soon as possible. Smart Search will not necessarily send a confirmation regarding the removal/disabling.
The statements by the party that posted the allegedly infringing content must also comply with the requirements for copyrights notifications. Note that you may be liable if the material infringes third party’s rights, so we recommend that if you are unsure, seek legal advice.
If you believe that the party posting the allegedly infringing material is a reoffending publisher, you may facilitate Smart Search the relevant information in order to verify and take the corresponding measures.
If any of the above requirements is not fulfilled, the copyright infringement notification might not be valid.
Thank you for your cooperation.
