The Limited License described herein must be used within 24 hours from issuance of the license. Once License is issued, Licensee may instruct Licensor and/or its agents to permanently publish or alternatively; halt publication (unpublish) of the chosen licensed content. Failure to use the limited license within the 24 hour term of the limited license shall be considered a waiver of rights and under no circumstance give rise to a claim for a refund of the license fee paid by licensee or its agents, assigns or successors. Licensor may revoke any license at any given time by issuing a full refund to Licensee. An application may be declined, or reversed, for any reason, by Licensor in its sole discretion. If a license is declined or reversed by Licensor, the Licensor shall issue a full refund of the fee charged. In the event of any dispute regarding the limited license described herein, the Licensee agrees that same shall be solely and exclusively resolved by Arbitration. (see Terms of Service and Use/Arbitration Agreement) In any event the limitation of liability arising from the transaction described herein shall be limited to the amount paid by Licensee, its agents, successors, or assigns for the limited license purchased by licensee.

Courtesy service: Once an unpublishing order is approved and processed, Licensor and/or its agents will submit a “link removal” request to Google. The time frame that each Search Engine utilizes to perform the task of removal of inactive links (“Dead links”) will vary according to their own schedule. Major Search Engines such as Google, Yahoo, and Bing update their entire index regularly. Each of the major search engines tend to crawl the web and automatically find new pages, remove inactive links, and reflect updates to existing pages and websites, keeping the Search Engine indices fresh and as up-to-date as possible. Licensor and its agents have no control of the speed of which Search Engines may act on link removal requests.
LICENSOR RESERVES THE RIGHT TO APPROVE OR DECLINE ANY APPLICATION IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION. IN MOST INSTANCES LICENSOR’S EXERCISE OF DISCRETION WILL BE INFLUENCED BY CIRCUMSTANCES WHERE THE PUBLIC INTEREST OR OTHER FACTORS ASSOCIATED WITH PUBLISHING OUTWEIGH AN APPLICANT’S PERSONAL INTEREST IN UNPUBLISHING.
THE EXISTENCE OF UNPUBLISHING SERVICES IS POSTED DUE TO REPEAT REQUESTS OF SUCH A SERVICE AND DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN OFFER TO SELL. BY HEREBY SUBMITTING A REQUEST FOR INFORMATION AND/OR SUBSEQUENT UNPUBLISHING APPLICATION THROUGH ONE OF THE LICENSOR’S AUTHORIZED AGENTS YOU ARE ACTING AS THE SOLE INITIATOR OF A POSSIBLE TRANSACTION BETWEEN YOU AND THE LICENSOR AND/OR ITS AGENTS.
