Take down notice policy
In the event that you consider your rights to have been infringed by another user’s conduct it is our intention to respond to all clear notices of copyright infringement, defamatory content or otherwise via our Take Down Notice policy, details of which are set out in this section.
If you believe that your own copyrighted work is accessible on the Site in violation of your copyright or that obscene or defamatory comments have been made in relation to you, then you may submit a Take Down Notice. You must include the following information within the Take Down Notice:
- identify in sufficient detail, the copyrighted work or intellectual property that you claim has been infringed so that the material can be located on the Site. Alternatively please provide sufficient details to locate the allegedly obscene or defamatory comment;
- the physical or electronic signature of the person making the complaint; and
- sufficient contact details for the person making the complaint, including an address, telephone number and e-mail address.
The Take Down Notice should be submitted to us at email@example.com.
Upon receipt of a Take Down Notice we shall remove or disable access to the allegedly infringing material if we consider it appropriate to do so. We may also advise the alleged infringer of your claim.
In the event that a Take Down Notice is received in connection with any content which you have posted or made available on the Site, you consent to the release of your personal contact details in connection with any investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringement, piracy, defamation or other unlawful activity. Such personal information will only be released to the complainant where required by law. In such circumstances we may, if we are required to do so, disclose your name, home address and e-mail address to the complainant or the complainant’s representatives.
Please note that some of the content on the Site is made available by third parties. In particular, we publish ‘learn and train’ information, ‘getting a job’ information, and ‘job profile’ information that originates from third party sources (please see ‘Third Party Websites and Content’ section above). If we receive a Take Down Notice in respect of any of that content, our ability to take it down is limited and we will instead pass on your complaint to the organisations that host that information or provide it to us (as appropriate).
