DatingComplaints.com is based in the United States and we are fully compliant with U.S. Law including the safe-harbor provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. § 512(c). Images appearing on this site are submitted by third party users who are prohibited from uploading images unless they are the lawful copyright owner.
If you are a copyright owner and you believe the use of your images on this site is infringing, please let us know. We will promptly consider any valid take down demand as long as the demand meets all requirements of the DMCA and as long as the specific use of the image(s) is not clearly fair use.
At a minimum, DMCA takedown notices must include at least the following things:
(1) Your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address;
(2) A description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed;
(3) The exact URL or web address where the alleged infringing material is located;
(4) A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use has not been authorized by you, your agent, or the law;
(5) Your electronic or physical signature or the electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on your behalf (it’s OK to just type your full name at the end of your notice); and
(6) A statement by you made under penalty of perjury, that the information in your notice is accurate, that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf.

NOTE — mailing/faxing/FedEx’ing DMCA notices is strongly discouraged and may delay processing of your request. Notices sent by mail/fax/FedEx do not receive any higher priority than notices sent by email.
Please be patient. DMCA notices are usually reviewed only during normal business hours from 9-5 Monday through Friday (Arizona time). We try to review notices the same day they are received, but it may take up to 72 hours to process your request. If we believe that your notice is valid, then we will remove the image(s) identified in the notice. However, we DO NOT respond to notices or explain why a particular notice was not honored.
IMPORTANT — if you “spam” us with multiple copies of the same notice, our system may block your email automatically. For that reason, we ask that you only send your notice ONCE. If nothing has been removed after 72 hours, you can re-send your notice one more time. However, if nothing is removed after your notice has been sent a second time, you should assume that the request has been denied.
Because we cannot give you legal advice, we will not respond to any emails asking “Why did you deny my DMCA request?” or “What should I do so you will honor my DMCA requests?” These types of legal questions should be presented to a local attorney in your area who can explain your rights and options.
NOTE: If you submit a removal request and you are NOT the copyright owner, or if you make any false statement in your demand (including a statement that our use of images is infringing when the use is clearly fair), you should be aware that the law imposes substantial liability for any damages and any attorney’s fees incurred as a result; see 17 U.S.C. § 512(f).
Repeat Infringer Policy: DatingComplaints.com takes copyright law seriously. In addition to removing infringing content when appropriate, we will block access to the site (to the extent possible) by any user who we determine to be a repeat infringer. For the purposes of this policy, a “repeat infringer” is defined as any person who is deemed to have uploaded infringing content three (3) or more times within a period of six (6) months.
