Please be advised that you will be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you materially misrepresent that a product or activity is infringing your copyrights. Thus, if you are not sure content located on or linked-to by the Website infringes your copyright, you should consider first contacting an attorney.
Please follow these steps to file a notice:
1. Verify that the content in question is hosted by Host4Fans. We only host pages that say “Hosted by Host4Fans” on the site or have nameservers pointed to Host4Fans.
2. Contact the webmaster directly. Go to the website in question and leave a comment or email the webmaster with your complaint to see if the matter can be resolved directly between you and the webmaster.
3. Send your complaint to our designated agent. If the issue cannot be resolved directly with the webmaster, send your complaint to our designated agent at:

- A physical or electronic signature of the copyright owner or a person authorized to act on their behalf;
- An identification of the copyright claimed to have been infringed;
- A description of the nature and exact location of the content that you claim to infringe your copyright, in sufficient detail to permit Host4Fans to find and positively identify that content; for example we require a link to the specific file that contains the content and a description of which specific portion of the link – an image, a link, the text, etc – your complaint refers to;

- Your name, address, phone number and physical or electronic signature;
- Identification of the allegedly infringing content and its location before disabling access; and
