Counter Notification Policy
All iHOUSEweb customers who have received a notice of copyright infringement may provide
Counter Notification by mailing
[email protected] and including the following:
- An electronic signature of the Customer.
Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been
disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or
access to it was disabled.

the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification
of the material to be removed or disabled, and stating the reasons for this belief.
Upon receipt of a Counter Notification as described above, iHOUSEweb shall promptly provide
the Complaining Party with a copy of the Counter Notification, and inform such
Complaining Party that it will replace the removed material or cease disabling
access to it in ten (10) business days. iHOUSEweb will replace the removed material
and cease disabling access to it in not less than ten (10), nor more than fourteen (14),

It is iHOUSEweb’s policy to provide for the termination, in appropriate circumstances,
of iHOUSEweb customers and account holders who repeatedly violate this policy or are
