To promote these objectives, Immerse Bahamas provides a process for submission of complaints concerning content posted by our Account Holders. Our policy and procedures are described and/or referenced in the sections that follow.

Please note that whether or not we disable access to or remove content, Immerse Bahamas  may make a good faith attempt to forward the written notification, including the complainant’s contact information, to the Account Holder who posted the content and/or take other reasonable steps to notify the Account Holder that Immerse Bahamas  has received notice of an alleged violation of intellectual property rights or other content violation. It is also our policy, in appropriate circumstances and in our discretion, to disable and/or terminate the accounts of Account Holder, or groups as the case may be, who infringe or repeatedly infringe the rights of others or otherwise post unlawful content.

Please note that any notice or counter-notice you submit must be truthful and must be submitted under penalty of perjury. A false notice or counter-notice may give rise to personal liability. You may therefore want to seek the advice of legal counsel before submitting a notice or a counter-notice.
