Take Down Policy

If you have cause for complaint about an item or the website, please contact Shortlet.net, using this form.

We take copyright violation very seriously and will vigorously protect the rights of legal copyright owners.

If you are the copyright owner of content which appears on our website and you did not authorize the use of the content you must notify us in writing in order for us to identify the allegedly infringing content and take action.

We will be unable to take any action if you do not provide us with the required information, so if you believe that your material for which you own the copyright has been infringed upon or violated, please provide our Copyright Agent, in writing, with the following information:

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

2.) 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.

3.) 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 us to locate the material.

4.) Information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted.

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

6.) 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.


Action to be taken on receipt of a complaint:

On receipt of your complaint, Shortlet.net staff will:

  • Acknowledge receipt of the complaint by email.
  • Make an initial assessment of its validity.
  • For all but spurious complaints, we will remove the item from the site that is subject to complaint.
  • Refer the complaint to our legal advisor team for comment and advice.
  • And seek to verify your identity and authority as complainant.

When the Shortlet.net Staff has verified the authenticity of your complaint and has been advised that it is ostensibly legitimate, it will:

  • Identify the depositor of the alleged infringing material and advise him/her of the nature of the complaint.

If the author/depositor fails to refute a complaint within 30 days of notification, the complaint will be taken as upheld.


Refuting the complaint

Content that is subject to complaint will not be made available on the website again until the depositor has proven to the satisfaction of Shortlet.net‘s Legal Advisor that it does not breach any law.

Metadata describing the item will remain with Shortlet.net‘s Team as trace.
