Complaints on content posted on the Storyrocket website
Storyrocket strives to protect the intellectual property rights of others and endeavors to make sure our site contains no content that violates those rights. Our Terms of Service requires that information posted by Members be accurate, lawful and does not violate the rights of any third parties. To address any issue that may arise, Storyrocket provides a process to submit complaints concerning content posted by our Members. Our policy and procedures are described and/or referenced in the sections that follow.
Please note that whether or not we disable access to or remove content, Storyrocket may make a good faith attempt to forward the written notification of the “third party’s” contact information, to the Member who posted the content and/or take other reasonable steps to notify the Member that Storyrocket has received notice of an alleged violation of intellectual property rights or other content violation.
At our discretion, we may remove the content in question until the dispute is resolved, disable the Member’s account until the dispute is resolved and/or terminate the accounts of the Member, or group as the case may be, who infringe or repeatedly infringe the rights of others or otherwise post unlawful content.
Please note that any notice or counter-notice you submit must be truthful and must be submitted under penalty of perjury. A false notice or counter-notice may give rise to personal liability. You may therefore want to seek the advice of legal counsel before submitting a notice or a counter-notice.
