HireAmbassador respects the intellectual property rights of others, and we expect you to do the same. HireAmbassador’s Terms of Service and Community Guidelines do not allow posting, sharing, or sending any content that violates or infringes someone else’s copyrights, trademarks or other intellectual property rights.
Copyright is a legal right that protects original works of authorship (e.g. Pictures, etc.). Generally, copyright protects an original expression of an idea (e.g., the specific way a Picture or music is expressed or created) but does not protect underlying ideas or facts.
We do not allow any content that infringes copyright. The use of copyrighted content of others without proper authorization or legally valid reason may lead to a violation of HireAmbassador's policies.
At the same time, not all unauthorized uses of copyrighted content constitute an infringement. Exceptions to copyright infringement, such as the fair use doctrine or other applicable laws, allow use of copyrighted work under certain circumstances.
Any user content that infringes other person’s copyright may be removed. The account may be suspended or terminated for multiple copyright violations in connection with the use of the HireAmbassador site or app, or other violations of the Terms of Service and Community Guidelines. We reserve the right to refuse any account holder whose account was used for improper activities from opening a new account on HireAmbassador’s site or app, or otherwise hosted by HireAmbassador.
A trademark is a word, symbol, slogan, design, or combination of any of the foregoing that identifies the source of a product or service and distinguishes it from other products or services.
Trademark laws prohibit trademark infringement, which is generally the unauthorized use of a trademark or service mark in connection with goods or services in a way that is likely to cause confusion, deception or mistake about the source, origin, sponsorship or affiliation of the associated goods and/or services.
At the same time, the use of another’s trademark for purposes of accurately referencing, lawfully commenting, criticizing, parodying, or reviewing the trademark owner’s products or services, or for purposes of comparing them to other products or services, where the mark is not used to designate the user’s own goods or services or those of a third party, is generally not considered a violation of our policies. Likewise, it is generally permissible to make a fan page about a brand, even without the brand’s permission, provided that you do not claim to speak for or be associated with the brand or otherwise violate the brand’s intellectual property rights.
Any content that violate another’s trademark rights may be taken down. Repeat violations of trademark rights in connection with the use of the HireAmbassador site or app, or other violations of the Terms of Service and Community Guidelines may result in the suspension or termination of the user account. We reserve the right to refuse any account holder whose account was used for improper activities from opening a new account on HireAmbassador’s site or app, or otherwise hosted by HireAmbassador.
If you receive a trademark infringement notification that you believe to be in error or believe that you are authorized to use the content, you can reach out to the trademark owner directly to request a retraction.
You may also provide us with a counter-notification via our online Counter Notification Form. All counter-notification should contain the information requested in our online Counter Notification Form. Failure to include necessary information may limit our ability to investigate your claims and may result in your counter-notification being denied.
As a HireAmbassador user, you are responsible for the content you post. If you have questions about copyright law or trademark law, such as questions about whether your content or your use of another person’s name or brand infringes or otherwise violates another person’s rights, you may want to contact an attorney. If you are unsure whether the material you plan to report to us is infringing or otherwise violating another person’s right, you may also want to first seek legal advice before reporting such content to us.
If you submit a report or infringement notification to us, we may contact you if we have additional questions about your report or notification. Please note that HireAmbassador is not in a position to adjudicate disputes between third parties, and may not be able to remove the content or suspend the account you reported. As an alternative, you may want to contact the person who posted the content or owns the account to try to resolve your issue directly.
