In making material available online the SOAS, University of London acts in good faith. However, despite these safeguards, we recognise that from time to time material published online may be in breach of copyright, contain sensitive personal data, or include content that is obscene or defamatory. On receipt of a request to takedown material from our websites, SOAS will respond by immediately removing the material in question. Requests will then be assessed by a review panel who will consider each request on its merits.
The panel will aim to respond definitively within four weeks, but may require additional time to seek external advice where appropriate. The panel may approve continued withdrawal of the material if one or more of the following criteria is met:
Where material is removed for reasons of Data Protection or sensitivity, its removal will be considered as temporary and will be restored at a date decided by the Panel once its sensitivity is deemed to have subsided. Where material is removed for reasons of copyright, its removal will be considered as lasting until such time as copyright in the material expires, or until the rights-holder agrees that the material can be reinstated.
