Digital Millenium Copyright Act Notice
Takedown Policy and Procedures
Smart About My Money, LLC abides by the U.S. federal Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and Singapore Copyright Act (Chapter 63) by responding to written notices of alleged infringement by legitimate copyright holders. As part of our response we may remove or disable access to allegedly infringing material residing on our website www.SmartAboutMyMoney.com and within our service. Please note that we do not control content hosted on any third party website and cannot remove content from any website it does not own or control.
To file a copyright infringement notification with us, send a written communication to Smart About My Money’s Copyright Agent indicating whether you are providing the notification pursuant to the DMCA or Singapore Copyright Act (in the absence of any such indication it will be assumed you are providing such notification pursuant to the DMCA), and provide the following information in writing:
- Identification of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed;
- Identification of the specific material that is claimed as infringing and information sufficient to permit Smart About My Money, LLC to locate that material on our website or within the our service (providing a URL is the best way to help us locate the content quickly),
- A statement that you believe, in good faith, that the use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or by law;
- If you are not the copyright owner, a description of your relationship to the copyright owner;
- Your contact information, including your address, telephone number and email address you;
- A statement, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner; and
- A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.
Please note that under provisions of the DMCA and Singapore Copyright Act, anyone who knowingly misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be liable for damages and, in certain cases, fees incurred by the alleged infringer or by Smart About My Money, LLC. Under the Singapore Copyright Act, this may also constitute an offense that may result in fines of up to S$10,000 and imprisonment for up to 2 years. Therefore, if you are not sure whether material infringes your copyright, you should first consider contacting an attorney.
