Infringement and Third-Party Content

Because the Site allows content to be posted from third parties and third-party websites, there is a chance that the ability to remove any allegedly infringing content will be out of College Nutritionist’s control. While College Nutritionist will make a good faith effort to remove the allegedly infringing content, once content is posted from College Nutritionist to any third-party website, College Nutritionist will have no control or ability to remove such content.  If you believe your copyright has been infringed by a College Nutritionist user posting content from a third-party website or to a third-party website, we strongly suggest you contact the third party or third-party site directly and request the allegedly infringing material be taken down.
