This policy was last changed on July 5, 2020 and last checked on September 16, 2020.
VegByte and its applications (all together “Services” or “Service”) respects the intellectual property rights of others and expects users of the Service to do the same.
Upon notice of an infringement of intellectual property rights, we may remove or disable access to such content with respect to subsequent Services, at our sole discretion. We cannot guarantee removal of infringing content from Services already made available or distributed over the web.
Procedure for Reporting Copyright or Other Intellectual-Property Infringement
You must not post, modify, distribute, or reproduce in any way any copyrighted material, trademarks, or other proprietary information belonging to others without obtaining the prior written consent of the owner of such proprietary rights.
It is the policy of VegByte to terminate the privileges of any user who infringes the copyright rights of others upon receipt of prompt notification to VegByte by the copyright owner or the copyright owner’s legal agent.
Pursuant to Section 512(c) of the Copyright Revision Act, as enacted through the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, VegByte designates the following as its agent for receipt of notifications of claimed copyright or other intellectual-property infringement:
To notify us of a claimed infringement of your copyright or other intellectual-property right by material residing on or accessible through this Website, you must contact us in writing by email or via contact form at the addresses provided above and provide the following information:
- A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
- Identification of the work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple works on this website are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at the website;
- 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 (for instance the URL of the marketplace product); and
- Information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an email address
Be advised that if you materially misrepresent that material is infringing your intellectual property, you may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees).
If you are not sure whether the material infringes on your intellectual property, you should consider contacting an attorney before contacting us.

- the content, products or services on or available from such websites and resources;
- third-party websites, content or resources that infringe, violate or otherwise interfere with any copyright or trademark or any other intellectual property owned by another party;
- any alleged or actual infringements of copyright, trademark or any other intellectual property rights committed by users of third-party websites;

How to Respond to a Claimed Infringement
If we remove or disable the material claimed to be infringing, we will take reasonable steps to notify the owner of the material of the claim, and the owner will then have the option to send us a counter-notice why the content does not infringe another’s intellectual-property rights and requesting reinstatement of the content.
The counter-notice must be in writing and include the following information:
- The owner’s physical or electronic signature; and
- Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled
If we receive a counter-notice under these provisions, we may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that we may replace the removed material or cease disabling it in 14 business days.
Unless the original complaining party files an action seeking a court order against the individual or entity who placed the content, the removed material may be replaced or access to it restored in 7-14 business days after receipt of the counter-notice, at our discretion.
Changes to Our Copyright and Intellectual Property Policy
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to change our Copyright and Intellectual Property Policy at any time by posting revised terms to our Copyright and Intellectual Property Policy.
It is your responsibility to check periodically for any changes we may make to this policy. Your continued use of the Services following the posting of changes to this policy or other terms means you accept the changes.
