**Policy and Procedures for DMCA Notices and Takedowns** acknowledges and respects the intellectual property rights of copyright holders. Even though our website is based outside of the United States, we voluntarily comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act's (DMCA) notice and takedown requirements. According to the DMCA's definition of a "Service Provider" (17 U.S.C. 512(k)(1)), our website falls under this category and benefits from the DMCA's "safe harbor" provisions. We are committed to upholding copyright protection and expect the same from our users. To fulfill this commitment, we have implemented the following Notice and Takedown Policy to address copyright infringement claims made by our clients, subscribers, or users.

**Notice of Claim Violation**

If you believe that your copyrighted work has been reproduced and published on in a manner that violates your rights, please provide the following information to our Designated Copyright Agent:

(a) A physical or electronic signature of the copyright or intellectual property interest owner or their authorized representative.

(b) A description of the copyrighted work or intellectual property allegedly infringed upon.

(c) The specific location on the Site where the alleged infringing material is located (preferably with specific URLs).

(d) Your contact information, including phone number and email.

(e) A statement from you asserting that you believe the disputed use of the material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.

(f) A sworn statement from you affirming the accuracy of the information provided in your notification and confirming that you are the copyright owner or have the necessary authority to act on their behalf.

You can send your Notice of Claim Infringement ("Notice") to:
Send an email to dmca [at] Lemon Social (.com)

Please refrain from sending additional queries or information to our Designated Agent. This policy only covers content published on To report content used unlawfully on other websites, please contact us at Any agency relationship beyond what is required for legitimate DMCA Notices is explicitly disclaimed, and our Designated Agent is not authorized to accept or waive formal legal process without prior written consent.

**Abuse Notification:**
It's essential to comply with all legal requirements before sending a DMCA Notice to our Designated Agent, as violating the DMCA Notice processes or providing false information can result in legal liability for damages, court expenses, and attorney fees under 17 U.S.C. 512(f). These Notice and Takedown Procedures exclusively pertain to copyright infringement allegations by copyright holders and their representatives. Any misuse of the DMCA notification or counter-notification process will be investigated and addressed.

**Removal Procedure**

Upon receipt of information related to alleged copyright infringement, the Site follows the "notification and takedown" procedure as outlined below. The Site retains the right to disable access to, or remove from the Site, any activity, material, or content that is claimed to be unlawful or based on information suggesting unlawful activity. The Site has a strict policy of terminating the accounts of repeat copyright violators when necessary. We act promptly to block access to any content that violates someone else's copyright, in accordance with 17 U.S.C. 512 of the DMCA. The following paragraphs outline the DMCA notice procedures for the Site.

If the Notice does not fully comply with 17 U.S.C. 512 of the DMCA but satisfies the three requirements for identifying infringing sites as outlined in 17 U.S.C. 512 of the DMCA, the Site will make reasonable efforts to contact or assist the complaining party in meeting the notification requirements. If a valid Notice is received, the Site will promptly remove or disable access to the infringing material and notify the affected user. The affected user may then submit a counter-notification to the Designated Agent, including a statement made under oath asserting that the removal of the material was due to mistaken identification. Upon receipt of the counter-notification, the Designated Agent will replace the material in question within ten to fourteen (10-14) days unless the Designated Agent learns that the complaining party has filed a lawsuit to obtain an injunction against the infringing activity.

**Procedure for DMCA Counter-Notification**

If the recipient of a Notice of Claimed Infringement believes that the Notice is inaccurate or false, or that allegedly infringing material has been improperly removed as per the procedures described above, a counter-notification may be submitted following the provisions of 17 U.S.C. 512(g)(2) and (3) of the DMCA. The counter-notification is the appropriate procedure for the recipient to challenge the removal or disabling of content in response to a Notice. The Recipient is responsible for providing accurate and truthful information in a counter-notification to prevent misrepresentations that

 may lead to claims against the Site regarding actions taken in response to the counter-notification.

To submit a counter-notification, please provide the following details to our Designated Copyright Agent:

(a) A detailed description of the content that was deleted or blocked per the Notice.

(b) A description of the content's location on the Site or the content itself, as defined in the terms and conditions or user agreement for the Site, before it was disabled or removed (preferably with specific URLs linked to the material).

(c) A statement expressing the Recipient's belief that the material was incorrectly removed or disabled. You may use the following format:

"I certify, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that the referenced material was taken down or otherwise made inaccessible by the service provider due to an error or misidentification of the content that needed to be taken down or otherwise made inaccessible."

(d) The Recipient's name and contact information, including phone number and email.

(e) A statement indicating the Recipient's acceptance of service of process from the person who provided the Notice or that person's agent, and the Recipient's consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court in the judicial district where the Recipient is located, or, if located outside the United States, any judicial district in which the service provider may be found.

Please send the above information in a written notification signed to:
dmca [at] Lemonsocial (.)

All DMCA notices and counter-notifications must be in English or Spanish. Notifications in foreign languages or containing non-standard characters will be considered non-compliant and will not be addressed.

Please refrain from sending additional queries or information to our Designated Agent. Any agency relationship beyond what is required for legitimate DMCA Notices is explicitly disclaimed, and our Designated Agent is not authorized to accept or waive formal legal process without prior written consent.

Our Designated Copyright Agent will forward a DMCA-compliant counter-notification to us upon receipt, and we will then forward the counter-notification to the original claimant who received the initial Notice regarding the allegedly infringing content. If we or our Designated Copyright Agent do not receive notice of legal action initiated by the original claimant within ten to fourteen (10-14) days of receiving a counter-notification, we will reinstate the disputed material or cease blocking access to it.
