Welcome to Careerswave.com, also called “the Site.” Just as we expect others to respect our rights, we also respect the rights of others to their intellectual property. In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, Title 17, United States Code, Section 512, a copyright holder or their agent can send us a takedown notice through our DMCA Agent, which is listed below (c). According to the “safe harbor” provisions of the DMCA, as an ISP we are allowed to claim immunity from these infringement claims. If you want to make a good faith claim of infringement, you must send us the notice below.
Notice of Violation – Claim
- a written or electronic signature from the owner of the copyright (or their authorized representative);
- a description of the work that is said to be infringing;
- Identifying the illegal content that needs to be deleted and giving the service provider enough information to find it. Please tell us the URL of the page in question so we can find the allegedly offensive work.
- your name, mailing address, email address, phone number, and fax number, as well as any other information the service provider thinks is reasonable for getting in touch with the complaining party;
- a statement that the person making the complaint believes in good faith that the copyright agent has told them they can’t use the material;
- A statement that the information in the notice is true and, under oath, that the complaining party has the right to act on behalf of the copyright owner.
Under 17 USC 512(c), a person can be sued for civil damages, including costs and attorney fees, if they knowingly and materially lie about certain information in a notification of infringement (3).
Please send all requests to “take down” to our legal department. For quick help, please send emails to [email protected].
Please keep in mind that if we get a claim of copyright infringement, we may tell the alleged offender who made the claim and what it was about. By filing a claim, you agree that the alleged infringer may be told who you are and about your claim.
Counter Notification – Return of Material
You can send us a counter-notification to try to get content back on the site that was taken down because of a copyright violation claim you knew about. 17 USC 512(g)(3) says that this notification must be made in writing and given to our DMCA Agent. It must have the following things at its core:
- Your signature on paper or online.
- a description of the content that was taken away and where it used to be.
- A statement made under oath that you have a good faith belief that the content was taken down or disabled because of a typo or because the content that needed to be taken down or disabled was wrongly identified.
- Your name, address, and phone number, as well as a statement that you will accept service of process from the person or business that first reported the infringement (or, if you are located outside of the United States, that you will submit to the jurisdiction of any court that has jurisdiction over the service provider).
- Use our Contact page to send us your reply. Email is strongly suggested.
Policy Repeat Infringer
We take violations of copyright very seriously. We keep track of DMCA notices from copyright holders and do our best to find repeat infringers, as required by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act’s repeat infringer policy. Those who break our internal policy on repeat offenders will have their accounts closed.
We may change the information on this page, including how we handle DMCA complaints, at any time and for any reason. You are encouraged to check back often to see if this policy has changed.
