We reserve the right to act, including the removal of content, in compliance with relevant legislation and our internal rules.

GitArchived respects copyright and is committed to promptly removing content that violates copyright laws. Users can request the removal of content they believe infringes their copyright by sending a complete notice of complaint to [email protected].
