If you think any User Content infringes your rights, or if you want to challenge User Content that has been taken down from the site, please refer to AlmostTotally’s Copyright Policy. We reserve the right, but are not obligated, to reject and/or remove any User Content that we believe, in our sole discretion, violates the Agreement.
