Upon receipt of notification the ‘Notice and Takedown’ procedure is then invoked as follows:

  1. WFOHW will acknowledge receipt of your complaint by email or letter and will make an initial assessment of the validity and plausibility of the complaint.
  2. If the complaint is initially deemed valid, the material will be temporarily removed from the website, or otherwise made unavailable, pending an agreed solution.
  3. WFOHW will further assess the validity of the complaint and may suggest the following outcomes:
    • The material is replaced on the website unchanged, or otherwise made available again.
    • The material is replaced on the website with changes, or otherwise made available with changes.
    • The material is permanently removed from the website, or permanently deleted, subject to our legitimate interests.
  4. If WFOHW and the complainant are unable to agree a solution, WFOHW may seek the involvement of a suitably qualified third party organisation or individual as an arbiter.
