Copyright Infringment Policy

Introduction

At The Adept Traveler, Inc., we respect the intellectual property rights of others and expect our users to do the same. This Copyright Infringement Policy outlines the process we follow in case of an alleged infringement on our website https://adept.travel.

Notice of Alleged Infringement

If you believe that your copyrighted work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement on our website, please provide us with the following information:

  1. A description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed.
  2. A description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on our site, with enough detail to allow us to locate it.
  3. Your contact information, including address, telephone number, and, if available, email address.
  4. A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.
  5. A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner's behalf.
  6. A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. Please send this notice, with all items completed, to our designated Copyright Agent at the following address: copyright@adept.travel

Processing of the Infringement Notice

Upon receiving a properly formatted notice of alleged copyright infringement, our designated Copyright Agent will undertake the following steps:

  1. Review of the Infringement Notice: We will review the infringement notice to determine its completeness and validity. A notice must contain all required elements as outlined in our Notice of Alleged Infringement section to be considered valid.
  2. Investigation: Upon receiving a valid notice, we will conduct a preliminary investigation into the claim. This investigation will aim to verify the facts stated in the notice and to determine the legitimacy of the copyright claim. This may include reviewing our records to ascertain whether we have a valid license or authorization for the use of the allegedly infringing material.
  3. Response to the Claim: Our response to the claim will depend on the outcome of our investigation:
    • If Infringing: If our investigation concludes that the material is indeed infringing and we do not have a valid license or authorization, we will act expeditiously to remove or disable access to the material claimed to be infringing.
    • If Not Infringing: If we determine that we have a valid license or authorization for the use of the material, or if the claim is otherwise found to be without merit, we will not remove the material. In such cases, we will inform the claimant of our findings and provide an explanation of why the material will not be removed.
  4. Notification to the User: If the material is removed or access to it is disabled, we will make reasonable efforts to notify the user who posted the material, informing them of the action taken and the reasons for it.
  5. Documentation and Record-Keeping: We will keep detailed records of the infringement notice, our investigation, and any actions taken in response to the claim. This documentation will be retained in accordance with our legal obligations and company policies.

Please note that the submission of a false or misleading infringement notice can have legal consequences. We advise consulting with a legal professional if you are unsure about the legitimacy of your claim.

Liability

Please note that under United States federal law, specifically the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability for damages. This includes any person who falsely claims that content on our website infringes their copyright. Therefore, if you are unsure whether the material you are reporting is in fact infringing, you may wish to contact an attorney before filing a notice with us.

Modification of Policy

The Adept Traveler, Inc. reserves the right to modify this policy at any time. We encourage users to frequently check this policy for any changes.
