We take the intellectual property rights of others seriously and require that our customers and their end users do the same. If you believe someone has uploaded content to an Optimizely website or service that infringes your copyright or your trademark, please let us know by sending us an infringement notice as described below. We may, in appropriate circumstances, disable or terminate the accounts of users who may be repeat infringers.

- A description or image of the copyrighted work that you claim is being infringed;

- Your address, telephone number, and email address;
- The following statement: “I have a good faith belief that the use of the copyrighted material described in this notice is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law (such as as fair use, fair dealing, or other exceptions)”;
