Libellous statements policy

Bytemark do not, and cannot, monitor the content of all our customers’ sites. If you wish to have a libellous statement removed from one of our customers’ sites, we must have the following information for each libellous statement:

  • the full URL where the content is hosted
  • (where the content at the URL is more than a paragraph long) a quotation of the statement in question
  • a reason as to why the content is libellous.

Without this information, we will not consider ourselves sufficiently informed of a libellous statement, as we will not track them down on behalf of a third party.

Our remedies for libellous statements will only extend to removal or alteration of the libellous statement in question. We will categorically not entertain demands to:

  • remove an entire page, except where its contents entirely consist of a libellous statement, or statements
  • block a customer’s server or terminate a contract with a customer.

It is also our policy to work with our customers in the first instance, and to give them 72 hours from notification to alter their site(s) on receipt of a complaint about a libellous statement.

To notify Bytemark of a libellous statement please . Reports not containing the information we require will be rejected.

Bytemark Cloud used to be called "BigV"—nothing has changed except the name! We’re hiring! Please visit careers.bytemark.co.uk to find out more.
