DMCA Notice and Takedown procedure

Twickd supports the protection of intellectual property and asks Twickd merchants to do the same. It’s our policy to respond to all notices of alleged copyright infringement. If someone believes that one of our merchants is infringing their intellectual property rights, they can send a DMCA Notice to Twickd’s designated agent by sending an e-mail to dmca(at)twickd.com. Upon receiving a DMCA Notice, we may remove or disable access to the Contents claimed to be a copyright infringement. Once provided with a notice of takedown, the merchant can reply with a counter notification by sending an e-mail to dmca(at)twickd.com if they object to the complaint. The original complainant has 14 business days after we receive a counter notification to seek a court order restraining the merchant from engaging in the infringing activity, otherwise we restore the Contents.
