Sightengine is an Image and Video Moderation provider that may host content of its subscribers. As an intermediary, Sightengine is entitled to rely upon (among other things) the DMCA safe harbor available to hosting service providers and search engines. Although it is Sightengine’s policy to respond to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement, Sightengine recommends that you submit a notice pursuant to the DMCA directly to the originating site of the content. Sightengine’s response to these notices may include forwarding the notice to the applicable subscriber or removing or disabling access to material claimed to be the subject of infringing activity. Sightengine maintains policies and procedures to terminate subscribers that would be considered repeat infringers under the DMCA. See 17 U.S.C. 512 available at http://www.copyright.gov/

Unless it is reasonably apparent to Sightengine that the applicable subscriber has already received a notice of infringement from you regarding a particular content, Sightengine will forward all the information you provide in your notice, including your contact information, to the applicable subscriber.
