    DMCA Notice

If you believe that material available on our services infringes on your copyright(s), please notify us by emailing us a DMCA notice. Upon receipt of a valid and complete notice, we will remove the material and make a good faith attempt to contact the user who uploaded the material by email.

Before submitting a DMCA notice, it’s important to consider if the manner in which the material is used falls under fair use. If you are not sure whether material located on a Tappla app infringes your copyright, or if it is subject to fair use protections, you should first consider seeking legal advice.

Please be advised that you may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you materially misrepresent that material or activity is infringing.

Your DMCA notice will be forwarded to the party that made the material available, and also may be sent to third parties such as LumenDatabase.org.

Please follow these steps to file a notice:
1. Verify that the app in question is built with Tappla.
2. Contact the Tappla Customer who is responsible for the content directly. Go to the app in question and leave a comment with your complaint to see if the matter can be resolved directly between you and the app creator.
3. Send your complaint as plain text email to our email address below, if the issue cannot be resolved directly with the app creator.

As required by the DMCA, we have a policy to terminate users and/or sites that we consider to be repeat infringers. Although we won’t share the specifics of our repeat infringer policy (we don’t want anyone to game the system, after all), we believe that it strikes the right balance of protecting the rights of copyright owners as well as protecting legitimate users from wrongful termination. Please note that notices that are successfully countered, rejected on fair use grounds, or deemed to be fraudulent are not counted against a user or site. Send your complaint to support [at] tappla.com

You must include the following:

  • A physical or electronic signature of the copyright owner or a person authorized to act on their behalf;
  • An identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed;
  • A description of the nature and exact location of the material that you claim to infringe your copyright, in sufficient detail to permit Tappla to find and positively identify that material. For example we require a link to the specific app post (not just the name of the app) that contains the material and a description of which specific portion of the app post – an image, a link, the text, etc. your complaint refers to;
  • Your name, address, telephone number and email address;
  • A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
  • A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
