  1. Overview

    1. SHAPL respects the intellectual property rights of others and we expect people on SHAPL to do the same. It is our policy – in appropriate circumstances and at our reasonable discretion – to disable or terminate the accounts of users who infringe or are charged with infringing design, copyright or other intellectual property rights (“design/copyright”).
  2. Submitting a Notice of Infringement

    1. If you are a design/copyright holder, or its agent, and you believe that any content which is directly available on our Website our offered through our Services infringes your design/copyright, please let us know.
    2. Please send the following information to our designated agent to file an infringement notice – include as much detail as possible to allow us to identify the facts or circumstances:
      1. Identify the content you believe has been infringed. If you are reporting multiple contents, you can provide a representative list of those contents.
      2. Identify the content on SHAPL you claim to be infringing your design/copyright, including the information we need to help us find it, such as the URL to the page on SHAPL.
      3. Provide your mailing address, phone number and email address.
      4. Include both of these statements in the body of your notice:
        • "I hereby state that I have a good faith belief that the disputed use of the content or reference or link to such content is not authorized by the design/copyright owner, its agent, or the law (for example, as a fair use)."
        • "I hereby state that the information in this notice is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that I am the owner, or authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the design/copyright or of an exclusive right under the design/copyright that’s allegedly infringed."
      5. Include your full legal name and your electronic or physical signature (for example, by typing your full name).
    3. If the content you are reporting is an image, you can ask us to remove all copies of the image. Please note that we can only remove identical copies of an image—if an image file has been resized or altered, we may not be able to find or remove it.

  3. Receipt of Infringement Notification

    1. Once we receive a proper bona fide infringement notification, we may (i) remove or disable access to the infringing content; (ii) notify the content provider, member or user that it has removed or disabled access to the content; and/or (iii) remove repeat offenders from the system and terminate such content provider’s or user’s access to our Services.
  4. Bad Faith Notices

    1. Please be aware that in certain jurisdictions, you may be liable for any damages, including without limitation costs and attorneys’ fees incurred by us or our users, if you knowingly materially misrepresent that content or activity is infringing. If you are unsure whether the content you are reporting is in fact infringing, you may wish to contact an attorney before filing a notification with us.
  5. Filing Counter-Notification

    1. If you receive an infringement notification and believe that your content has been removed or disabled by mistake or because of misidentification, you can submit a counter-notification to us by emailing us at SUPPORT@SHAPL.COM. Your counter-notification email must be delivered to us within 14 calendar days from the date of the infringement notification and contain the following information (please confirm these requirements with your legal counsel for more information):
      1. a physical or electronic signature of the user of the services;
      2. identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled; and
      3. a statement made under penalty of perjury that the subscriber has a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the content.
    2. Upon receipt of a valid counter-notification, SHAPL will forward it to the notifying party who submitted the original infringement notification. The notifying party will then have 10 calendar days to notify us that they have filed legal action relating to the allegedly infringing content. If we do not receive any such notification within 10 calendar days, we may restore the content to the Services.
