Unite Custom (UC) is a venue for independent artists, designers, and creatives. As such a venue, UC takes intellectual property (IP) rights extremely seriously. We abide by IP laws and industry best practices in order to maintain the integrity of the UC marketplace. This IP policy addresses how we respond to infringement allegations.
UC is a marketplace of third-party sellers who operate their own shops and are responsible for complying with applicable laws. While we provide the marketplace, UC does not manufacture or ship products. The content uploaded on UC's marketplace is created by such sellers who are not employees or agents of UC. Sellers are responsible for any and all content uploaded to the marketplace.
When we are notified of an IP infringement, UC's goal is to respond as quickly as possible by removing the allegedly infringing material in question. When UC removes content as a consequence of a notice, UC may contact the member affected by the infringement claim and provide information about the notice and removal. Information regarding the IP owner's alleging infringement may also be provided.
UC reserves the right to remove any piece of content, page, shop or entire account that we believe violates our Terms of Service (ToS) in addition to this IP policy. UC also reserves the right to take action against those who abuse our IP policy or our ToS.
Before removing any material, UC may ask for additional information relating to the claim. Notices or counter notices may be rejected by UC if we believe the information contained therein is incomplete, false, fraudulent or otherwise submitted in bad faith.
UC complies with the the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). For general DMCA notice requirements and DMCA designated agent, please click the link here.
At UC's discretion, members who repeatedly infringe the IP policy may have their privileges and access to the marketplace suspended or terminated by UC. UC reserves the right to terminate an account and access to our services at any time, for any reason or no reason, and without notice.
If you are the intellectual property owner or the authorized representative who submitted a claim, UC will accept a withdrawal from you if the withdrawal clearly states that it is a formal withdrawal and clearly identifies the affected member and/or content. This can be done by providing the username, page/shop name, or the UC URLs.
Upon receiving a formal withdrawal, UC will make reasonable attempts to contact the involved parties to confirm receipt from the submitting party and to inform the affected member of the withdrawal. Note, however, that a withdrawal does not guarantee any change to the affected member's shop status and are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
