1.Purpose of Policy
1.1 This policy sets out the circumstances in which Online Medical may remove content (“Customer Content”) placed or maintained on any servers operated and provided to the customer by Online Medical (“Online Medical Servers”) in response to a complaint from a third party that the Customer Content includes material which infringes a third party’s intellectual property rights, is defamatory of the third party, is misleading or deceptive, or is otherwise unlawful.
2.Procedure for notifying Online Medical of infringement of third party rights

- the full name, telephone number and email address (if possible) of the Third Party;
- identification of the website on which the Customer Content which is the subject of the notice (“Notified Content”) is hosted;
- a clear identification of the Notified Content, which is sufficiently detailed to enable Online Medical to identify and locate the Notified Content;
- a clear explanation of the basis on which the Notified Content is alleged to infringe the Third Party’s or other entity’s rights;
- if the claimed infringement is of the intellectual property rights, a clear description of the intellectual property which the Third Party claims has been infringed, and of the basis on which the Third Party or other entity asserts rights in relation to the intellectual property (e.g. ownership of registered trade mark);
- if the Third Party is not the entity whose rights are alleged to have been infringed, a statement of the basis on which the Third Party is entitled to act on behalf of that entity; a statement that the Third Party, after having made all necessary enquiries, believes that the content of the notice is accurate; and
