Short-Link LTD has adopted the following general policy toward claims of infringement with respect to intellectual property owned or controlled by third parties in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (http://lcweb.loc.gov/copyright/legislation/dmca.pdf). The address of Company's Designated Agent to Receive Notification of Claimed Infringement ("Designated Agent") is listed at the end of this policy.
It is Company's policy to (1) block access to or remove material that it believes in good faith to be the intellectual property of a third party (e.g., copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, etc.) that has been illegally copied and distributed by any of our advertisers, affiliates, content providers, members or users; and (2) remove and discontinue service to repeat offenders. A repeat infringer is a user for whom x19 Limited has received more than four notices of claimed infringement or for which x19 Limited has had to remove content more than four. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, x19 Limited reserves the right to immediately terminate the account of any user for egregious infringing activities in x19 Limited's sole determination and discretion.

C. Procedure to Supply a Counter-Notice to the Designated Agent:
If the content provider, member or user believes that the material that was removed or to which access was disabled is either not infringing, or the content provider, member or user believes that it has the right to post and use such material from the owner of the intellectual property, the owner's agent, or pursuant to the law, the content provider, member or user must send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Designated Agent listed below:
Any DMCA counter notices must be emailed to: [email protected], we cannot accept them sent to any other address or communication method.
By sending a Counter Notice you consent that any personal information identified on the document will be sent in full, uncensored, to the content provider.
The DMCA counter notice must include the Short-Link DMCA Reference ID, this can be located in your DMCA report in your Short-Link acconut.
D. Multiple Infringement Procedure:
We operate a 3 strike repeat offender policy. If the Company has received three valid DMCA notices, the Company will notify user they have 72 hours to issue any Counter-Notices or their account will be suspended. Upon suspension, no funds will be paid to the account owner and no links will be accessible belonging to the user's account.
The only way a DMCA strike can be removed from a user's account is by a 6 month expiration (providing no further notices have been received during this time) or by countering the DMCA notice with a valid counter-notice.
