Notice & Takedown

What is a Notice and Takedown order?

A Notice and Takedown order is a procedure for asking an Internet and Electronic Service Provider (ISP/ESP) or search engine to immediately remove or disable access to illegal, irrelevant or outdated information hosted on their services.
INHOPE hotlines send notices and Takedown orders to ISPs/ESPs when a member of the public sends them a URL containing illegal images and videos depicting child sexual abuse and exploitation, often referred to as child sexual abuse material—CSAM.

How is CSAM removed from the internet?

We take a look at public perception versus reality. Different countries follow different procedures involving different stakeholders, who process the report in different orders, using different approaches, whilst applying different laws.
