Welcome to Africanpeek’s DMCA Policy. This policy outlines how we handle copyright infringement issues and how you can report such issues.

Commitment to Intellectual Property Rights

At Africanpeek, we highly value intellectual property rights and expect our users to respect these rights as well. We comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and take swift action against any infringements.

Pre-Complaint Considerations

Before filing a DMCA complaint, consider whether the use of the copyrighted material falls under ‘Fair Use’. If you’re unsure, consult with legal counsel before proceeding.

Reporting Infringement

If you’re a copyright owner or authorized to act on behalf of one, you may submit a DMCA complaint to us. Please send your complaint to us at [email protected].

Required Information

Your complaint must include:

  • Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to be infringed.
  • A description of the infringing material and its location on our platform.
  • Your contact details.
  • A statement of good faith belief that the use is not authorized.
  • A statement that the information is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act.


Users who receive a DMCA notice may file a counter-notification. If a counter-notification is received, we will forward it to the original complainant. If the complainant does not take legal action within 14 days, we may restore the removed content.

Safe Harbor Provisions

We adhere to the “Safe Harbor” provisions, protecting Africanpeek from liability as long as we comply with DMCA procedures.


This DMCA policy is for informational purposes only and should not be considered legal advice.


Any disputes arising from copyright infringement claims will be governed by the laws of the jurisdiction in which Africanpeek operates.

User-Generated Content and Africanpeek’s Liability

While Africanpeek currently does not host user-generated content, we may do so in the future. Users will be solely responsible for the content they upload. Africanpeek will not be liable for any copyright infringements made by users.

Repeat Infringers

We have a policy to deal with users who repeatedly violate copyright laws, which may include warnings, temporary suspensions, or permanent bans.

Acknowledgement of Receipt

We commit to acknowledging the receipt of any DMCA complaints or counter-notifications within 5 days.

Timeframe for Content Removal

Upon receiving a valid DMCA complaint, Africanpeek commits to removing the alleged infringing content within 5 business days.


Users agree to indemnify and hold harmless Africanpeek and its affiliates from any claims, losses, or damages arising from their violation of copyright laws.

Policy Updates and User Notification

Africanpeek will use a combination approach for policy updates. We will use passive notification as the default but will switch to active notification for significant changes. Users are encouraged to check this policy regularly.
