INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY COMPLAINT POLICY
novteestores.com prohibit users from using the service to sell merchandise that infringes upon third party intellectual property rights (such as copyright, trademark, trade dress, and right of publicity).
novteestores.com will consider complaints of possible infringement only from parties that own, or have the exclusive right to exploit, said intellectual property. novteestores.com is not in a position to adjudicate disputes. If you believe a campaign contains content that is not authorized, upon receipt of the information enumerated below, novteestores.com will provide the campaign owner with your correspondence and contact information and direct the campaign owner to contact you within seven (7) days to resolve this dispute. If the campaign owner does not contact you, or if the issue is not resolved to your satisfaction, please let us know. In cases of an alleged infringement, in our sole discretion, novteestores.com may take down the campaign and refund all buyers, provided that the conditions, below, are satisfied.
If you believe that your intellectual property rights have been infringed upon by a novteestores.com user, please notify novteestores.com at firstname.lastname@example.org. You must include within your notification the following information:
If you believe that a claim of intellectual property infringement was filed by mistake or misidentification you may file a counter-notice. If you materially misrepresent in your counter-notice that your design is not infringing upon the intellectual property, you may be liable for damages to the intellectual property owner (including costs and attorney’s fees). Therefore, if you are unsure whether or not the material infringes on the intellectual property, please contact an attorney before filing the counter-notice. The counter-notice should be submitted to email@example.com and must include the following information:
If you submit a counter-notice, a copy of the counter-notice may be sent to the complaining party informing the complaining party that novteestores.com may replace the removed material or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the intellectual property owner files an action seeking a court order against you, the removed material may be replaced or access to it restored in 10 to 14 business days after receipt of the counter-notice.
If novteestores.com receives repeated notices that you have posted others’ intellectual property without permission, novteestores.com may terminate your account. novteestores.com has a system for keeping track of repeat violators of intellectual property rights of others, and determining when to suspend or terminate your account.
Generally, when content is removed that you posted because the intellectual property owner of that content sent us a complete legal request to do so, you will get an intellectual property strike. If you receive three intellectual property strikes within a one-year period, your account will be suspended for a period of one month. If you receive four intellectual property strikes within a one-year period, your account will be suspended for a period of three months. If you receive five intellectual property strikes within a one-year period, your account will be suspended for a period of six months. If you receive six intellectual property strikes within a one-year period, your account will be terminated.
If you submit a counter-notice in response to the intellectual property owner’s notice and that counter-notice is not answered by the intellectual property owner, or if the dispute leads to legal proceedings that result in a court finding that you have not infringed the owner’s intellectual property, novteestores.com will take away the strike that you were given for posting that content. Likewise, if the intellectual property owner retracts his or her notice, novteestores.com will take away the strike.
novteestores.com reserves the right to terminate accounts that act against the spirit of the Terms of Service, regardless of how many strikes are involved.
