Go To Hear Ltd. (“Company”) policy toward claims of infringement with respect to intellectual property owned or controlled by third parties in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act is as follows:
It is Company’s policy to:

Procedure for Reporting Claimed Infringement:
If you believe that material or content residing on or accessible through the Company website or service infringes an intellectual property right that you own or control, please send a notice of claimed infringement to email@example.com
Please note that you will be liable for damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees, if you materially misrepresent that content or an activity is infringing your copyrights.
Your communication must include all of the following items:

- Identification of works or materials being infringed.
- Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing including information regarding the location of the infringing materials that the intellectual property owner seeks to have removed, with sufficient detail so that Company is capable of finding and verifying its existence. Providing URLs in the body of an email is the best way to help us locate content quickly.
- Contact information – such as your address, telephone number, and email address where you can be contacted.
- If claiming copyright infringement, the statement “I swear under penalty of perjury that I am the copyright owner or am authorised to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed, and that the information in this notification is accurate. I believe in good faith that use of the copyrighted materials described above as allegedly infringing is not authorised by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.”
If claiming trademark infringement, the statement “I swear under penalty of perjury that I am the trademark owner or am authorised to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed, and that the information in this notification is accurate. I believe in good faith that use of the materials described above as allegedly infringing is not authorised by the intellectual property owner, its agent, or the law.”

If the content provider, member or user believes that the material that was removed or to which access was disabled is either not infringing, or the content provider, member or user believes that it has the right to post and use such material from the owner of the intellectual property, the owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, the content provider, member or user must send a counter-notice containing the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- A physical or electronic signature of the content provider, member, or user.
- Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled, and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled.
- A statement that the content provider, member, or user believes in good faith that the material was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or a misidentification of the material.
- Content provider’s, member’s or user’s name, address, telephone number, and, if available, e-mail address and a statement that such person or entity consents to the judicial district in which Company is located, and that such person or entity will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.
