Take Down Policy

We make every effort to ensure that SAFA courses have the proper rights or permissions to use materials from the Brooklyn Historical Society (BHS) collections on SAFA course websites. Parties who have questions or who wish to contest the use of specific works may contact BHS staff.

In all such communications, please:

  1. Use the email subject line “SAFA Take Down Policy.”
  2. Identify the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled.
  3. Provide the full and complete URL where you found the material on a SAFA course website.
  4. Provide proof that you are the rights holder and include a statement that, under penalty of perjury, you are the the owner, or authorized agent of the owner, of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
  5. Include a physical or electronic signature of the complaining party or authorized agent.
  6. Include contact information for the complaining party or authorized agent.

If BHS is not able to determine that a SAFA course website is permitted to use the work(s) in question, we will cease providing access to the work until or unless it can determine that such uses are permitted.
