Take Down Policy

The Max Planck Society LDH Project makes every effort to ensure that it has appropriate rights to ingest and provide access to content. Where possible, the Max Planck Society LDH Project secures rights to use works that are in copyright.

What we do to clear copyright status of used material.

In those cases where the rights are unclear (e.g., when we encounter copyright information that, relative to the work in hand, is ambiguous or contradictory), we archive but do not provide public access to the work.

If you are a rights owner and are concerned that you have found material, for which you are the rights owner, on our website and you have not given permission, please contact us in writing stating the following:

  • your contact details
  • the full bibliographic details of the material
  • a statement that you are the rights owner or are authorised to act for the rights owner.

The material will be temporarily removed from the Language Description Heritage Website pending an agreed solution. If the contributor and the complainant are unable to agree a solution, the material will permanently removed from the website.

You may also give us the necessary permission, using the form provided here.
