About The DMCA And Our Responsibilities

YOUNTO, Inc. and its properties are protected under Title II of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. We will respond with due haste to any allegations of copyright violations in accordance with the DMCA.

The following is a statement of our policies and removal notices as required by the DMCA. The following applies to any and all copyrights, trademarks, owners of intellectual property interested in utilizing this action, as well as users seeking to restore access to material mistakenly removed. When a valid DMCA claim is received, or an authorized agent or moderator for YOUNTO, Inc. becomes aware of a violation, we will respond by removing the offending content as soon as possible. We will take reasonable steps to contact the owner of the removed content so that a counter-notification may be filed. On receiving a valid counter-notification, we normally will restore the content in question, a counter notice from the notification provider that a legal action has been filed seeking a court order to restrain the alleged infringer from engaging in the infringing activity. YOUNTO, Inc. will not necessarily send a confirmation regarding the removal/disabling.
