Copyright infringement

The Apkfab Platforms Rules (including without limitation to Term of Use, Copyright Policy and Developer Agreement) do not allow uploading any content that infringes others copyrights. Each user should be responsible for ensuring that they own or have the necessary permissions to the content that they upload on the Platforms. The use of copyrighted content of others without proper authorization or legally valid reason may constitute a violation of the Platform Rules.

This Copyright Policy does not constitute legal advice and should not be treated as a substitute for legal advice. You should seek independent legal advice if you are in doubt as to whether any third party content which you intend to upload to the Platforms is protected by copyright.

Take-down Procedure

If you think that copyright of your materials has been infringed, you are required to send a take-down notice (in the form prescribed by the Copyright Act) to Apkfab's Designated email. Upon receipt of a valid take-down notice, Apkfab will take reasonable steps to remove or disable access to the material in accordance with the Copyright Act.

Restoration Procedure
