This directive of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ( “Policy”) applies to the site https://beingtips.com ( “Site” or “Service”) and all related products and services (collectively, “Services”) and describes how this website operator (“operator”, “we”, “us” or “our”) deals with copyright infringement notifications and how you (“you” or “your”) can file a copyright infringement complaint.
The protection of the intellectual property is of the utmost importance to us and we ask our users and their authorized representatives to do the same. It is our policy to respond promptly to clear notifications of suspected copyright infringement pursuant to the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) of 1998, the text of which can be found on the US Copyright Office website.
What to consider before filing a copyright complaint
Before filing a copyright complaint with us, consider whether the user can be considered fair use. Fair use states that brief excerpts of copyrighted material can, under certain circumstances, be quoted verbatim for purposes such as criticism, news coverage, teaching, and research without permission or payment to the copyright holder being required.
Please note that if you are unsure whether the material you are reporting actually constitutes infringement, you should contact an attorney before filing a complaint with us.
The DMCA requires that you provide your personal information in the copyright infringement notice. If you are concerned about the privacy of your personal information, you may want to hire a representative to report infringing material for you.
Filing a DMCA complaint is the start of a pre-defined legal process. Your complaint will be checked for correctness, validity, and completeness. Our response may include removing or restricting access to the suspected infringing material.
If, in response to a notification of an alleged violation, we remove or restrict access to materials, or terminate an account, we will use good faith efforts to contact the affected user with information to remove or restrict access.
The process described in this policy does not limit our ability to seek any other remedies we may have to resolve any suspected violations.
Changes and additions
We reserve the right to change this Policy or its terms and conditions in relation to the Website and the Services at any time with effect from the time an updated version of this Policy is posted on the Website. If we do, we will revise the updated date at the bottom of this page.
