Notice
We appreciate your cooperation in providing an English translation of your report to our intellectual property right agent. Please include the information below in writing.

  • A signature (physical or electronic) from the owner or from a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the allegedly infringed content or material.

  • Contact information such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail to permit the service provider to contact you.

If you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this Section, you acknowledge that your intellectual property right Complaint form may not be valid and may therefore not be handled (whether fully or partially) by LEGO System A/S.

If we receive an intellectual property right Complaint form that complies with all the requirements, we reserve the right to refuse, to make private or to remove the Content. We reserve our rights to action against you if you misrepresent that a fair use of the Content constitutes infringement.

Counter-Notice
If your content has been removed as a result of an intellectual property right Complaint as per the above and you believe it is not infringing, or believe you have authorization from the rights holder, the rights holder’s agent, or pursuant to the law, to transmit and use the content, you may send a counter-notice to us at copyrightnotices@LEGO.com containing the information below:

  • Your physical or electronic signature.
  • Identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled.
  • A statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content.
  • Your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.

If you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this Section, you acknowledge that your intellectual property right Counter-Notice form may not be valid and may therefore not be handled (whether fully or partially) by LEGO System A/S.

Please note that LEGO System A/S may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party which you hereby accept. The rights holder then has 14 business days to respond and unless the rights holder files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or user, the removed content may be accessible to the broader audience on the Site, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at our sole discretion.

Code of Conduct and Appropriate Use

The LEGO Group Code of Conduct applies to all visitors to any LEGO Group platforms, websites, or apps, including this Site. Violations of the Code of Conduct on one platform, website, or app may result in consequences on other platforms, sites, or apps.

The goal of the Code of Conduct is to establish a culture of courteous, respectful, and inclusive communication among all participants on all online platforms, websites and apps used by the LEGO Group. Our Code of Conduct prohibits harassment, bullying, and posts involving illegal content such as, for example, pro-terror material or crimes involving the health or safety of any person, among other types of prohibited content.

How the LEGO Group Enforces its Code of Conduct

The LEGO Group enforces its Code of Conduct in various ways.

Moderation
The LEGO Group moderates its sites. This process involves classification, filtering, and moderation of user generated content (‘UGC’) submitted to our sites from users, which may include online chat logs, usernames, profiles, images, video, audio, or other UGC.
When a user submits content to our sites, it is processed through software that submits the content for moderation.

For adult-targeted sites, data submitted for moderation is processed in part using AI-based automated decision making to review both text and image submissions, and this processing might involve data which could contain personal information, as well as information based on a user’s submission history. You can consult our Privacy Policy for more details about how the LEGO Group processes personal data. The LEGO Group uses two sets of machine learning models to moderate content: 1. Language detection trained by our moderation data processor using public data; 2. Images classified by our moderation data processor’s image analyzer tool. However, such automation is only one stage in the moderation process, and escalation triggers a second opinion which involves human intervention.

For child-targeted sites, the LEGO Group uses internal quality filters only and moderates using 100% human moderation.

User reports
If you think you have seen activity that violates the letter or the spirit of our Terms or Code of Conduct, please alert our moderators:

  • Click here to report a post: Customer Service
  • Use the “Report” button on a specific post

For Australian users: You can make a complaint about content on our site directly to the Australian eSafety Commissioner. Complaints to the Australian eSafety Commissioner must be in writing and must include the following:

  • your name and contact details;
  • internet address of the content and any other details required to access it;
  • description of the internet content; and
  • the reason(s) you feel the content is objectionable.

A report form can be filled in and submitted via the eSafety Commissioner website.

Procedures
When content or a user is flagged as potentially being in breach of our Terms of Use or Code of Conduct, our moderation team will review the content or activity in question to evaluate whether a breach has occurred.

We may impose the following sanctions for breaches of our Terms or Code of Conduct:

  • Content removal: Posts containing illegal content or content which the LEGO Group considers to be misleading or fraudulent will be removed as soon as they are found. Content which we have been informed infringes another’s intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights will also be removed. Other content may be removed for breach of our Code of Conduct after review on a case-by-case basis.
  • Content editing (for example, to delete an image or specific text): If only a portion of a submission is illegal or inappropriate or in breach of our Code of Conduct, we may edit that content to remove the offending material.
  • Temporary suspension of access privileges: User accounts may be suspended for repeated violations of our Code of Conduct, for example, for repeated incidents of harassing or bullying behaviour. We may also suspend the accounts of users who leak confidential information or who post misleading or fraudulent information, as well as users who make repeated unfounded complaints about other users or who abuse our reporting system
  • Permanent blocking of access privileges: User accounts used to post certain illegal content (such as child sex abuse material) will be terminated and reported to the relevant authorities. We also reserve the right to terminate the accounts of users who repeatedly or seriously violate our Code of Conduct, or who persistently make repeated unfounded complaints about other users, abuse our reporting system, or attempt to circumvent sanctions for prior bad behaviour.

Prior to imposing any of the above sanctions, we will take the following factors into account, including (but not limited to):

  • The numbers of instances of manifestly illegal or inappropriate content or manifestly unfounded notices or complaints submitted within a given time frame;
  • The relative proportion of such content in relation to the total amount of content posted or notices submitted within a given time frame;
  • The nature and seriousness of the inappropriate or illegal content including its potential or actual consequences on other users;
  • Where it is possible to identify, the intent of the individual or the complainant.

If we impose any of the above sanctions, we will inform you of the sanction and the reason(s) why, including specific references to these Terms of Use or our Code of Conduct.

Right of Appeal
If you think that we made a mistake relating to any content takedown, removal, or account suspension or termination that affects you, you have up to 6 months to challenge our decision.

For EU users: If the results of the appeal are unsatisfactory to you, you also have the right to apply to an out of court dispute settlement body to resolve disputes relating to our decision. In Denmark the Digital Services Coordinator is the Konkurrence- og Forbrugerstyrelsen, which can hear complaints about our compliance with the requirements of the EU Digital Services Act, as well as certify an out of court dispute settlement body. You will find the Danish Digital Services Coordinator at https://www.kfst.dk.

For Australian users: If we are unable to resolve your complaint within a reasonable time, we will refer your complaint to the Australian eSafety Commissioner.
