This Digital Millennium Copyright Act policy (“Policy”) applies to the nsfasapply.com website (“Website” or “Service”) and any of its connected products and services (collectively, “Services”) and outlines how this Website operator (“Operator”, “we”, “us” or “our”) addresses copyright infringement notifications and how you (“you” or “your”) may submit a copyright infringement complaint.
Protection of intellectual property
Protection of intellectual property is of great importance to us and we ask our users and their authorized agents to do same. It is our policy to speedily respond to clear notifications of alleged copyright infringement that comply with the United States Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) of 1998, the text of which can be found at the U.S. Copyright Office website.
Submitting a copyright complaint what to consider before
Kindly note that, if you are not sure whether the material you are reporting is an infringing one, you can contact an attorney before filing a notification with us. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) needs you to produce your personal information in the copyright infringement notification. If you are concerned about the privacy of your personal information, you may wish to hire an agent to report infringing material for you.
Copyright owner or agent notifications of infringement
If you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof, and you think that any of the available material on our Services infringes your copyrights, then you may submit a written copyright infringement notification (“Notification”) using the contact details provided below in accordance to the DMCA. All such Notifications must comply with the DMCA requirements.
Filing a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) complaint is the beginning of a pre-defined legal process. Your complaint will be reviewed for accuracy, validity, and completeness. If your complaint has satisfied these requirements, our response may include the removal or restriction of access to allegedly infringing material as well as a permanent termination of repeat infringers’ accounts. A backup of the terminated account’s data may be requested, however, we may not be able to give you with one and, as such, you are strongly advice to take your own backups.
If we remove or restrict access to materials or terminate an account in response to a Notification of alleged infringement, we will make a good faith effort to contact the affected user with information concerning the removal or restriction of access, along with instructions for filing a counter-notification.
Nevertheless anything to the contrary contained in any portion of this Policy, the Operator reserves the right to take no action upon receipt of a DMCA copyright infringement notification if it fails to comply with all the requirements of the DMCA for such notifications.
A user who gets a copyright infringement Notification may make a counter-Notification in accordance to sections 512(g)(2) and (3) of the US Copyright Act. If you get a copyright infringement Notification, it means that the material described in the Notification has been removed from our Services or access to the material has been restricted. Kindly take the time to read through the Notification carefully, which includes information on the Notification we received. To file a counter-notification with us, you must provide a written communication compliant with the DMCA requirements.
Kindly note that if you are not sure whether certain material infringes the copyrights of others or that the material or activity was removed or restricted by mistake or misidentification, you may wish to contact an attorney before filing a counter-notification.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in any portion of this Policy, the Operator reserves the right to take no action upon receipt of a counter-notification. If we receive a counter-notification that complies with the terms of 17 U.S.C. § 512(g), we may forward it to the person who filed the original Notification.
