HFPO’s policies prohibit any content that infringes on another person’s trademark. Using another person’s trademark in a way that may mislead or confuse people to believe that you are affiliated with the trademark owner may be a violation of our trademark policy.

However, using another person’s trademark for the purpose of accurately referencing the trademark owner’s products or services, or to compare them to other products or services, is generally not considered a violation of our trademark policy.

Removal of Content; Suspension or Termination of Account

Any user content that infringes other person’s trademark may be removed. Your account may be suspended or terminated for multiple trademark violations in connection with your use of the HFPO site or app, or other violations of the Terms of Service and Community Guidelines.

General Note:

As a HFPO user, you are responsible for the content you post. If you have questions about copyright law or trademark law, such as questions about whether your content or your use of another person’s name or brand infringes or otherwise violates another person’s rights, you may want to contact an attorney. If you are unsure whether the material you plan to report to us is infringing or otherwise violating another person’s right, you may also want to first seek legal advice before reporting such content to us.

If you submit a report or infringement notification to us, we may contact you if we have additional questions about your report or notification. Please note that HFPO is not in a position to adjudicate disputes between third parties, and may not be able to remove the content or suspend the account you reported for infringement or violation. As an alternative, you may want to contact the person who posted the content or owns the account to try to resolve your issue directly.
