YourMistressC.com and CookingUpKink.com Trademark Dispute Policy

YourMistressC.com and CookingUpKink.com use an automated system that dynamically generates web pages containing relevant keywords and links to advertisements that are optimized based on the behavior of internet users visiting such web pages. YourMistressC.com and CookingUpKink.com advertisers, the owners of the domain name participating in the YourMistressC.com and CookingUpKink.com system, have the ability to choose from a number of different options to customize the keywords, taglines and “look and feel” of the web pages generated by the YourMistressC.com and CookingUpKink.com system on behalf of YourMistressC.com and CookingUpKink.com’s advertisers.

The YourMistressC.com and CookingUpKink.com Terms of Service prohibit its users from violating the intellectual property rights of others, and also provide that the advertiser or poster is solely responsible for any alleged inappropriate conduct. Accordingly, if you have a claim regarding an advertiser or poster participating in the YourMistressC.com and CookingUpKink.com system, we strongly encourage you to contact the advertiser or poster directly whenever possible.

Nevertheless, while we are not in a position to arbitrate trademark disputes between domain name owners and trademark owners, we have adopted this Trademark Dispute Policy as a courtesy to assist when a dispute arises.

It is our policy to immediately review complaints of alleged trademark infringement and to perform an investigation as soon as practicable, normally within two (2) business days. If our investigation determines that an advertiser(s) participating in the YourMistressC.com and CookingUpKink.com system potentially violates the intellectual property rights of the complainant, we will take down the advertising or posts from the YourMistressC.com and CookingUpKink.com system. In appropriate circumstances and at our sole discretion, we may terminate any users or administrators who are deemed to be repeat infringers.

If you believe that your trademark has been violated, please submit a trademark dispute notice containing the information specified below. Because our actions may necessarily affect the rights of our customers, we will not investigate complaints that do not substantially comply with this notice requirement. Please note that you may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys' fees) if you materially misrepresent that an activity is infringing your trademark.

1. Your name, address, telephone number, and email address;

2. A copy of your trademark registration, or list the trademark(s) at issue, the country/countries where registered, and the registration number(s);

3. The specific domain names at issue;

4. A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the trademark owner, its agent, or the law;

5. A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that you are the trademark owner or authorized to act on the trademark owner's behalf;

6. Your signature

Please send your written notice of any trademark disputes to addresses specified below. While we accept communications by mail, we strongly encourage you to use electronic communications so that your communications can be properly logged and can be addressed more quickly.

By email
For convenience, an email link is included in the navigation bar for forums allowing user posts. Please be certain your notice of take down claims includes all of the above information or we may be unable to proceed.
