We will take reasonable steps to promptly notify the user whose submission was removed or disabled that we have removed or disabled access to such content.

If you believe that your user submission that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to applicable law, to post and use the content in your user submission, you may send a counter-notice containing the following information to Horizons:

  • a statement by you that you consent to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located, or if your address is outside the United States, for any judicial district in which Horizons may be found, and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of claimed infringement or an agent of such person; and
  • a statement by you under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content.

Please send such notice to:

Email: legal@horizonsforhomelesschildren.org

If we receive a counter-notice, we may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that we may restore the removed content or cease disabling access to it in 10 business days.
