Notice and Takedown Policy

The Scottish Music Centre is committed to ensuring that material in its collections is preserved and made available for researchers to consult in the Centre’s premises.  Selected material (in the form of sample page, low-resolution thumbnails, or short audio / video clips) is also available online.

Despite safeguards, we recognise that sometimes material published online may not be covered by limitation or exception in UK copyright law, contain sensitive personal data, or include content that may be regarded as libellous, defamatory or obscene.

If you come across material on this site which you believe should not be available to users, please contact us in writing, stating the following:

  1. Your contact details.
  2. Sufficient information, including full URL (and exact catalogue reference if applicable) to allow us to identify the relevant item.
  3. The nature of your complaint, and reasons for notifying us.
  4. If your complaint concerns intellectual property rights, confirmation that you are the rights holder (or their authorised representative)
  5. If your complaint concerns libel, defamation, confidentiality or personal data, confirmation that you are either the publisher or the subject of the material in question (or their authorised representative).

On receipt of a complaint:

  • We will acknowledge receipt of your complaint by email or letter and make an initial assessment of the validity and plausibility of the complaint.
  • If the complaint is valid, we will temporarily remove or disable access to the relevant material pending an agreed solution, which will involve either (a) restoring access to the material unchanged; or (b) restoring access to the material with changes; or (c) permanently removing access to the material.
