Complaints about content.

Simple Reciprocity respects the intellectual property rights of others and we make every effort to make sure our service does not contain content that violates those rights. Our User Agreement requires that information posted by Members be lawful and not in violation of the rights of others. In addition, Simple Reciprocity allows for submission of complaints concerning content posted by our Members.

In its discretion and under appropriate circumstances, Simple Reciprocity may disable and/or terminate the accounts of Members, or groups as the case may be, who infringe or repeatedly infringe the rights of others or otherwise post unlawful content. We may make a good faith attempt to forward the written notification, including the complainant’s contact information, to the Member who posted the content and/or take other reasonable steps to notify the Member that Simple Reciprocity has received notice of an alleged violation of intellectual property rights or other content violation.

Please take note that any notice or counter-notice submitted must be truthful and must be submitted under penalty of perjury. A false notice or counter-notice could give rise to liability. You may therefore want to seek the advice of legal counsel before making a submission.
