Report Abuse and Illegal Content

Each Leaseweb Sales Entity promotes a high level of responsible behavior in connection with the use of its services and each Leaseweb Sales Entity respects the rights of others and requires that users of Leaseweb services do the same. To ensure that rights holders can effectively enforce their rights, and also to ensure that any misuse of Leaseweb services is remedied, each of the Leaseweb Sales Entity has adopted an abuse and illegal content handling policy.

None of the Leaseweb Sales Entities are able to monitor completely the manner in which its services are used by a customer or an end user. If you have identified that Leaseweb services are used in violation of the Leaseweb Policies or any applicable law, or if you believe that your content has been used in a manner that infringes upon your rights, you can send an abuse or illegal content notification to the relevant Leaseweb Sales Entity. The procedure and requirements for the abuse notifications are set forth below.

The Leaseweb Compliance department is quick to act on all notifications it receives. All notifications received are evaluated by Leaseweb’s automatic Abuse Prevention Tool, which is active 24/7 and handles notifications all year round.

Abuse and Illegal Content Process

The Compliance department works with an automated Abuse Handling tool. This Tool serves both the Leaseweb customer, and the notifier. Both parties receive an active interface which can be used to track the status of a notification and communicate directly with the relevant Compliance department. After submitting a notification, you will receive an email with a link to the Leaseweb Abuse Prevention Tool.

The Leaseweb Sales Entity does not have access to particular content hosted by users of Leaseweb services. Upon receipt of an abuse and illegal content notification, the Abuse Prevention Tool will forward your notice to the appropriate customer. It may therefore be more efficient, and in some cases even required, for you to send your abuse notification directly to the user of Leaseweb services.
