1. Inspire Uplift's Role
Inspire Uplift is an online marketplace where third-party sellers run their stores to sell unique products across the globe. Each seller works in an individual capacity, with their own shipment and inventory maintenance and responsibility to ensure law-abiding work ethics during their conductance of business. We provide a platform to these sellers but share no role in manufacturing products, providing holding the inventory, and keeping the order shipments in line on behalf of the sellers. The content uploaded on Inspire Uplift's marketplace is made by individual sellers who are not employees, agents or represent the company in any way. Sellers are responsible for ensuring that they own the rights of the content they are using, and they are not infringing any third party's property rights by posting it on our marketplace.
2. Notices of Intellectual Property Infringement
The first action that Inspire Uplift takes against allegations of property rights infringement is the removal of the material from the marketplace in an efficient and fast manner. Once the content is removed or disabled, Inspire Uplift contacts the affected party and inform them about the removal of the material from the marketplace. If an allegation of copyrights infringements is given, they are informed about the ways to submit a counter-notice. Inspire Uplift may also provide a copy of the violation notice to the affected party, along with the name and e-mail address of the reporting party, so that both can get in touch to resolve the matter.
For the fastest way to address your claim, use Inspire Uplift's Reporting Form under the DMCA to notify Inspire Uplift's Designated Agent about the claimed infringement. For other property claims: https://www.inspireuplift.com/dmca.
Inspire Uplift may require extra information before proceeding with actions necessary for the notice. This extra information includes identity verification of the reporting party and the documentation related to the claimed right. Inspire Uplift has the right to reject notices or counter-notices if we believe they are false, incomplete, or aimed at defaming others. Inspire Uplift also has the right to take action against the abusers of this policy.
According to Digital Millenium Copyright Act DMCA, Inspire Uplift only accepts counter-notices for notices concerned with copyrights. When Inspire Uplift receives a counter-notice, then we send a copy of this notice to the complaining party. The removed content can be replaced or is made accessible again after 10 business days of counter-notice being processed. If the owner of content files a copyright claim action through court against the violating party, then the 10 days policy does not stand.
4. Repeat Infringement
5. Notice Withdrawals
Inspire Uplift accepts withdrawal notices only from the intellectual property rights owner or an authorized representative of the party that submitted the copyrights claim in the first place. The withdrawal must be a formal one that includes all information about the identification of members and the material. Important information to mention is the seller name and the Inspire Uplift listing URLs.
Upon receiving the withdrawal notice, Inpisre Uplift contact both parties, i.e., the party submitting withdrawal and the one being affected by withdrawal. This contact is done to confirm the receipt. It is to be noted that the infringement cases are taken one by one, and withdrawals do not guarantee a change in the seller's store status.
