TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT content is based on User Generated Content (UGC). Appirox does not check user uploaded/created content for violations of trademark or other rights. However, if you believe any of the uploaded content violates your trademark, you should follow the process below. Appirox looks into reported violations and removes or disables content shown to be violating third party trademark rights.

In order to allow us to review your report promptly and effectively, a trademark infringement notice ("TM Notice") should include the following:

  • Identification of your trademark and the goods/services for which you claim trademark rights

  • Your trademark registration certificate and a printout from the pertinent country's trademark office records showing current status and title of the registration. Alternatively, a statement that your mark is unregistered, together with a court ruling confirming your rights

  • A short description of how our user(s) allegedly infringe(s) your trademark(s)

  • Clear reference to the materials you allege are infringing and which you are requesting to be removed, for example, the GIG® url, a link to the deliverable provided to a user, etc.

  • Your complete name, address, email address, and telephone number.

  • A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the trademark owner, its agent, or the law.

  • A statement made under penalty of perjury that the information provided in the notice is accurate and that you are the trademark or are authorized to make the complaint on behalf of the trademark owner

  • Your electronic or physical signature

you can submit the Notice electronically to [email protected] or by submitting a ticket to our Trademark Complaint representative here.

Note that we will provide the user who is allegedly infringing your trademark with information about the TM Notice and allow them to respond. In cases where sufficient proof of infringement is provided, we may remove or suspend the reported materials prior to receiving the user's response. In cases where the allegedly infringing user provides us with information indicating that it is permitted to post the allegedly infringing material, we may notify you and then replace the removed or disabled material. In all such cases, we will act in accordance with applicable law.
