Ah yes, the legal page. We know you can’t wait to read this scintillating bit of prose, but hey, if you’re into that kinda thing, go for it! It’s the place for cautionary stuff like:
- Please don’t follow our advice. If you choose to do so, it is at your own risk.
- Information on HomeFixated is highly likely to contain errors or inaccuracies.
- Home improvement can be dangerous, even downright life-threatening. If you’re not a pro, consult one before taking on any project.
- Some products we actually review based on our direct experience (these will typically have the word “review” in the title). Clever, huh?
- Email, comments or posts sent to HomeFixated are considered our property and all correspondence is considered available for publication. We may also stroke and edit your correspondence lovingly while reciting “my precious” over and over again.
Our team of legal eagles said that the section above was barely worth the paper it’s printed on. Since it’s not technically printed on any paper, we figured they meant it in a bad way. So rather than rely on that iffy text above, you’ll find all our actual legal and terms of service info below. The lawyers say it’s super-important, so make sure you read every last word of it before venturing into the wilds of HomeFixated.com!

1. A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
2. Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;

For clarity, only DMCA notices should go to the Copyright Agent; any other feedback, comments, requests for technical support, and other communications should be directed to HomeFixated customer service through HomeFixated Contact Form. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this Section 12(a), your DMCA notice may not be valid.
(b) Counter-Notice of Copyright Infringement: To file a counter-notification with us, you must provide a written communication that sets forth the items specified below.
Please understand that filing a counter-notification may lead to legal proceedings between you and the complaining party to determine ownership. Be aware that there may be adverse legal consequences in your country if you make a false or bad faith allegation by using this process.
Please also be advised that we enforce a policy that provides for the termination in appropriate circumstances of users* who are repeat infringers. So, if you are not sure whether certain material infringes the copyrights of others, we suggest that you first contact a lawyer.
A counter-notification must include the following specific elements:
1. Identification of the specific URLs of material that HomeFixated has removed or to which HomeFixated has disabled access;
2. Your full name, address, telephone number, email address, and your HomeFixated username, if applicable.

5. Signature. A scanned physical signature or a valid electronic signature will be accepted.
* We can only accept a counter-notification directly from the user whose video has been disabled. For verification, we require that counter-notifications be submitted from the email address associated with the user. For purposes of this DMCA Policy a “user” means anyone who, along with their submitted material, provides HomeFixated with their name, email address, telephone number and/or any other identifying information which would allow us to contact the person directly via email.
Send the written communication to the following address:
2726 Shelter Island Dr., #130

If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, HomeFixated may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed Content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the Content provider, member or user, the removed Content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at HomeFixated’s sole discretion.
