  1. Copyright Infringement and DMCA Policy.

If you believe that material located on or linked to by GaggleAMP.com violates your copyright, you are encouraged to notify GaggleAMP in accordance with GaggleAMP's Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") Policy (see below). GaggleAMP will respond to all such notices, including as required or appropriate by removing the infringing material or disabling all links to the infringing material that are contained on the Website. GaggleAMP may terminate a visitor's access to and use of the Website at GaggleAMP's sole discretion if GaggleAMP determines that the visitor or user is or may be infringing on the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of GaggleAMP or others. In the case of such termination, GaggleAMP will have no obligation to provide a refund of any amounts previously paid to GaggleAMP.

  • Your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address;

  • A description of the exact location on the Website or Gaggle of the infringing or unlawful content;

  • A description of the claimed infringing or unlawful content, specifying which parts you belief infringe or are unlawful and which parts you believe should be removed;

We encourage you to see the advice of an independent attorney before filing an intellectual property notice or responding to a notice filed by another user.

GaggleAMP may be notified of claims of intellectual property infringement by contacting our designated copyright agent, providing the above requested information to:

GaggleAMP, Inc. Attn: Copyright Agent 196 Boston Avenue, Suite 3100 Medford, MA 02155 dmca@gaggleamp.com

  1. Infringement and Third Party Content. Because GappleAMP.com allows content to be posted from third parties and third party websites, there is a chance that the ability to remove any allegedly infringing content will be out of our control. While we will make a good faith effort to remove the allegedly infringing content, once content is posted from GaggleAMP to any third-party website, GaggleAMP will have no control or ability to remove such content. If you believe your copyright has been infringed by a GappleAMP.com user posting content from a third party website or to a third party website, we strongly suggest you contact the third party or third party site directly and request the allegedly infringing material be taken down.

  2. Intellectual Property. This Agreement does not transfer, assign or license from GaggleAMP to you any GaggleAMP or third party intellectual property, and all right, title and interest in and to such property will remain (as between the parties) solely with GaggleAMP.

  3. Automated Use. GaggleAMP.com was designed with an opt-in convenience feature to allow an individual Gaggle Member with the ability to auto-share messages.

GaggleAMP will actively monitor Gaggle use and will be responsive to inquiries of any supported social media platform requests to investigate improper use. GaggleAMP will take immediate action addressing anyone suspected of improper use including those actions identified in sections 2 and 5 of this Agreement.
