Protection of intellectual property

A large number of very varied products are offered on Gumtree by private individuals in the UK. Entitled parties, in particular the owners of copyright, trademark rights or other rights owned by third parties can report any offers which many infringe on their rights, and submit a request for this offer to be removed. If a legal representative of the entitled party reports this to us in the correct manner, products infringing on the intellectual property rights will be removed by Gumtree.

Reporting an infringement:

In no event do we accept liability of any description for the posting of any unlawful, threatening, abusive, defamatory, obscene or indecent information, or material of any kind which violates or infringes upon the rights of any other person, including without limitation any transmissions constituting or encouraging conduct that would constitute a criminal offence, give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate any applicable law.

In order to participate in the Notice of Infringement Programme, you only need to complete a Notice of Infringement Form and fax it to Gumtree. You can use this form, complete with your signature, to report advertisements which may infringe on your property rights. The information requested in the Notice of Infringement Form is for the purpose of ensuring that the parties reporting these objects are either the entitled party or their officially authorized representative. This information must also enable Gumtree to identify the advertisement to be removed. Once we have received your correctly completed Notice of Infringement Form, you can simply send later reports to Gumtree via the e-mail address provided.

Note: This form can only be used by the lawful owners of the intellectual property rights. "Notice of Infringement" is intended to ensure that products offered do not infringe the copyright, trademark right or other intellectual property rights of third parties.
