If you object to the publication of any material placed on the Site, please follow the instructions for Notice and Take Down below.

3.2   Notice of Defamatory Content.  If you believe that any Content on the Site is defamatory or breaches any term in this Acceptable Use Policy, please assist us by providing us with a written statement with the subject line “Notice of Defamatory Content.”  The notice should include your name, mailing address, company name, and your title (if applicable).

We will use reasonable endeavours to remove any Content that we deem to be defamatory or in breach of the Acceptable Use Policy from our Site within a reasonable timeframe, and in any case, in accordance with any timeframes established in applicable law.

3.3    Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”).  In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), if you believe that any content on the Site infringes your copyright, you should notify Promethean of your claim in accordance with the following procedures.  The DMCA requires that the notification of claimed infringement (“Notice of Infringement”) be in writing, and such notification should be provided to Promethean by email to copyright@prometheanworld.com.

The information requested by the Notice of Infringement is designed to ensure that parties reporting claimed infringements are either rights owners or authorised by the rights owners, and to enable us to correctly identify the content to be removed.  To be effective, the Notice of Infringement must contain the following information:

(a)  A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;

(b) 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;

(c) 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;

(d) Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an email address at which the complaining party may be contacted;

(e) A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained about is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and

(f) 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.

Upon receipt of a proper Notice of Infringement, we reserve the right to:

  • remove or disable access to the infringing material;
  • notify the content provider/user who is accused of infringement that we have removed or disabled access to the applicable material; and
  • terminate such content provider/user’s access to the Site.

If the content provider/user believes that the material that was removed or to which access was disabled is not infringing, or the content provider/user believes that the content provider/user has the right to post and use such material, the content provider/user has the right to send us a counter-notice containing the following information to copyright@prometheanworld.com:

  1. an original or electronic signature of the content provider/user;
  2. identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled;
  3. a statement that the content provider/user has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material; and
  4. content provider/user’s name, address, phone number, and if available, email address.

If a counter-notice is received by us, we may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing them that we may replace the removed material or cease disabling it in 10 to 14 business days after receipt of the counter-notice at Promethean’s discretion.

4.2    A waiver by us of any default shall not constitute a waiver of any previous or subsequent default.
