Content reporting and DMCA

If you believe that any content does not comply with our standards we invite you to report this to us. Information about how you can report user content is provided in our Editorial Guidelines and Safety Guide. You can also reach out on support@kahoot.com .  

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that material available in the Service infringes your copyright, you (or your agent) may send to Kahoot a written notice by mail or e-mail, requesting that Kahoot removes such material or blocks access to it. If you believe in good faith that someone has wrongly filed a notice of copyright infringement against you, the DMCA permits you to send to Kahoot a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA. See http://www.copyright.gov/ for details. Notices and counter-notices must be sent in writing to Kahoot by mail to legal@kahoot.com or to Kahoot ASA, Fridtjof Nansens plass 7, N-0160 Oslo, Norway. We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a DMCA notice or counter-notice. Please note that Kahoot may, in appropriate circumstances, terminate or suspend users and account holders who are repeat infringers.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Kahoot! may in its sole discretion take such actions as it deems fit in order to protect the intellectual property rights of any intellectual property owner, including but not limited to removing user content.
