Let us know if someone is using your trademark on KindHarvest in a way that’s likely to confuse people about the source of a good or service. If appropriate, we will respond by taking action, e.g. removing a post, reply, network, blocking or banning a user.
- The trademarked word/symbol in question plus the category of goods and/or services in which you are asserting rights
- The trademark registration number and country where you claim trademark rights
- Information that allows us to find the infringing material on KindHarvest (e.g. a link to a post, reply, network, or user)
- Explain what the problem is: How your trademark is being infringed and what’s causing the confusion (be specific please)
- Explain what you want us to do: Remove a certain post, ban an account, or ask a user to change their name or user profile in some way
- A statement that:
- You believe in good-faith that this third-party use of the trademark which you are telling us about has not been authorized by the trademark owner
- You have concluded in good-faith after careful review that the use of the trademark is not fair use
- That the information in your notice is accurate
- Your mailing address, telephone number, and email
- If you aren’t the rightsholder, explain your relationship to the rightsholder
Some important things to know:
- We forward trademark notices to the user in question. For this reason you should be careful about including any personal contact details; use your business address, phone number, and email if possible.
- We may not take action even after you send us a notice. Why? We may decide the user isn’t using your trademark in a way that is confusing. People are allowed to use your company or product name in their writing — even if the writing is negative or critical — as long as it doesn’t confuse people about the source of a good or service. For example, a negative review of your product is not an infringement of your trademark.
