The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) is a law that protects creators from having their work unlawfully used online. This law mainly targets websites where content is uploaded by unknown sources.
At Heated Gadget, we’re committed to taking appropriate action when notified of any copyright infringement.
This DMCA policy applies to our website, “heatedgadget.com”, and any related services. It explains how we handle copyright infringement notices and how you can submit a copyright infringement complaint.
We place great importance on intellectual property rights and ask our users to do the same. We promptly respond to clear notifications of alleged copyright infringement in accordance with the DMCA, the text of which can be found on the U.S. Copyright Office website.
What to consider before submitting a copyright complaint?
Before you submit a copyright complaint, please make sure you are certain that the material you report is actually infringing. If you are unsure, you might want to consult with an attorney before filing a notification.
Please note that the DMCA requires you to provide your personal information in the copyright infringement notification. If you’re worried about the privacy of your personal information, please take this into account.
Notifications of infringement
If you’re a copyright owner or an agent, and you believe any material on our services infringes your copyrights, you can submit a written copyright infringement notification (“Notification”) to us, following the DMCA requirements.
Filing a DMCA complaint begins a pre-set legal process. We will review your complaint for accuracy, validity, and completeness. If it meets these requirements, we may remove or restrict access to the allegedly infringing material.
If we remove or restrict access to materials or terminate an account due to a Notification, we will try to contact the affected user with information about the removal or restriction of access.
We may choose to take no action if a DMCA copyright infringement notification fails to comply with all the requirements of the DMCA.
The process described in this policy does not limit our right to pursue other remedies we may have to address suspected infringement.
Changes and amendments
We reserve the right to modify this policy or its terms at any time. When we do, we will post a notification on our website’s main page and send you an email. We may also contact you in other ways.
The updated version of this policy will be effective immediately upon posting unless otherwise specified. Your continued use of the website and services after the effective date of the revised policy will indicate your acceptance of those changes.
