  1. Copyright Infringement Policy.

5.1 If you have any reason to believe that content available on our Site allegedly infringes your intellectual property rights (including copyright) or those of a third party, you can notify us by providing a takedown notice (the “Notice”) in the form and manner set forth herebelow.

5.2 Passerport takes copyright infringement matters seriously, and is ready to remove any allegedly or factually infringing content displayed on the Site upon due Notice and request by the title holder.

5.3 If you are the copyright holder, or a representative of a copyright holder (e.g. you are the person whose pictures are being used on an ad on the Site, or you know the actual person) and you would like to make an infringement Notice, we will respond to any notification you receive claiming that user generated content infringes any third party’s rights, and will undertake the applicable corrective actions, which may include but will not limited to, removing any such user generated content within a reasonable timeframe.

5.4 Prior to delivery of the Notice, please verify that the content subject matter hereof is indeed hosted on our Site, and is not a banner, frame or other web page element mirrored or embedded from other third party websites.  If that may be the case, please first contact the website displaying the content to pursue the matter directly with them.

5.5 We will investigate any complaint Notice that provides us with sufficient information.  However, please note that unless we are able to determine with a high degree of certainty that the image in question is not being used properly, then we might not be able to take all requested Notice actions.  Therefore, the more information you can provide to us at the link below, the more likely it will be that we may be able to act upon the information.

5.6 You must notify us of your claim with subject: “Takedown Request”.  The Notice must contain the following information, at the least:

  1. First and last name of copyright title holder (or company name, in case), physical or electronic signature, your identification or that of the owner or agent authorized to act on behalf of the copyright title holder.
  2. A description of the copyrighted material that is allegedly infringing, including exact location, permalink and complete URL (in order for us to find and positively identify that material).
  3. Contact information, including address, state/region/province/country, zip/postal code, phone number and email address (in order for us to remit our answer).
  4. A statement indicating that you swear — under penalty of perjury — that you have good faith belief that the information provided in the Notice is true and accurate, that you have sufficient right and authorization to act on behalf of the copyright title holder (in case), and that the copyrighted material described above as allegedly infringing is not authorized by the copyright title holder, its agent, or under applicable law.

5.7 Once received, Passerport will study and consider your claim and, if it believes or has reason to believe any content on the Site infringes on another’s copyright, Passerport may delete it, disable or otherwise stop displaying it.

5.8 Please note that you may be liable for any and all costs, damages and expenses, including reasonable attorney and expert fees, if you knowingly or materially misrepresent your copyrights or that of the title holder; and that Passerport may seek to collect indemnification for those damages.

5.9 Given our business model, our affiliates, advertisers, partners and third party syndicated content providers may be adversely affected due to a Notice.  Accordingly, upon receipt of any such notice, we will try to contact the content owner of the affected site to uphold their right to a “Counter Claim Notice”.

5.10 To file a Counter Claim Notice, please contact our designated agent indicated below, in writing, and with a Counter Claim Notice containing the following information, at a minimum: (i) express identification of the content that we may have or have removed from our Site and section or domain it was displayed; (ii) contact information, such as your address and your email address; (iii) a signature and identification of the title holder and/or the person authorized to act; and (iv) a statement indicating that you swear, under penalty of perjury, that you have a good faith belief that the information provided in the Counter Claim Notice is true and accurate.
