Intellectual Property Complaint Policy
TheHikerHut.com prohibit users from using the service to sell merchandise that infringes upon third party intellectual property rights (such as copyright, trademark, trade dress and right of publicity).

TheHikerHut.com will consider complaints of possible infringement only from parties that own, or have the exclusive right to exploit, said intellectual property. TheHikerHut.com is not in a position to adjudicate disputes. If you believe a campaign contains content that is not authorized, upon receipt of the information enumerated below, we will provide our customer with your correspondence and contact information and direct the customer to contact you within seven (7) days to resolve this dispute. If the customer does not contact you, or if the issue is not resolved to your satisfaction, please let us know. In cases of an alleged infringement, in our sole discretion, we may take down the campaign and refund all buyers, provided that the conditions, below, are satisfied.

If you believe that your intellectual property rights have been infringed upon by a TheHikerHut.com user, please notify TheHikerHut.com at admin@TheHikerHut.com.

TheHikerHut.com will accept complaints and notification of possible infringement from customers that claim ownership of said original content from an earlier campaign.

Once notified, TheHikerHut.com, in its discretion, may remedy any alleged infringement by removing unauthorized content. Alternately, TheHikerHut.com may notify the allegedly infringing party and provide a warning; instances of further infractions can lead to possible suspension or termination of their accounts.
