Copyright Policy

Last Updated: March , 2015

Vingle will investigate claims of copyright infringement and take appropriate actions under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, Title 17, United States Code, Section 512(c)(2) ("DMCA"). If you believe that any Content on the Vingle website or accessible through the Services has infringed your copyright, you may submit a written notification of claimed copyright infringement to the following Designated Agent:

dmca@vingle.net

To be effective, the notification must written and include the following (please consult your legal counsel or see Section 512(c)(3) of the DMCA to confirm these requirements):

  1. A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
  2. Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site.
  3. Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material. Providing URLs in the body of an email is the best way to help us locate content quickly.
  4. Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted.
  5. A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.
  6. A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

The information you send us in your notice of copyright infringement may be forwarded to the Member who provided the allegedly infringing content.

If you do not comply with all of the requirements of this section, your DMCA notice may not be valid. Only DMCA notices should go to our Designated Agent. If you send an email or notice to our Designated Agent without a proper subject line, or for purposes other than communication about intellectual property claims, we may not acknowledge or respond to your communication. Any other feedback, comments, requests for technical support, and other communications should be directed to our customer service at support@vingle.net.

After removing material pursuant to a valid DMCA notice, Vingle will immediately notify the Member responsible for the allegedly infringing material that it has removed or disabled access to the material. Vingle will terminate, under appropriate circumstances, the Accounts of Members who are repeat copyright infringers, and reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate any Member for actual or apparent copyright infringement.
