When a valid DMCA notification is received, the service provider responds under this process by taking down the offending Content.  On taking down Content under the DMCA, we will take reasonable steps to contact the owner of the removed Content so that a counter-notification may be filed. On receiving a valid counter-notification, we generally restore the Content in question, unless we receive notice from the notification provider that a legal action has been filed seeking a court order to restrain the alleged infringer from engaging in the infringing activity.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE NOTIFICATIONS AND COUNTER-NOTIFICATIONS ARE REAL-WORLD LEGAL NOTICES PROVIDED OUTSIDE THE SITE.  STELLA SINGLES MAY PROVIDE COPIES OF SUCH NOTICES TO THE PARTICIPANTS IN THE DISPUTE OR THIRD PARTIES, AT OUR DISCRETION AND AS REQUIRED BY LAW — THE PRIVACY POLICY DOES NOT PROTECT INFORMATION PROVIDED IN THESE NOTICES.
