Law enforcement officials seeking records from Minus Inc. (“Minus,” “we,” or “us”) related to the use of this site and related services (collectively, the “Site”) should consult these operational guidelines. We disclose User records solely in accordance with our Terms of Service and applicable law.
Minus responds to valid legal process issued in compliance with U.S. law.
We will respond to requests that are issued via U.S. court pursuant to a Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty or letter rogatory upon proper service of process.
We will take steps to preserve account records in connection with official criminal investigations for 90 days pending our receipt of formal legal process. You may submit formal preservation requests by email or mail as indicated below.
We report all apparent instances of child exploitation appearing on our site from anywhere in the world to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (“NCMEC”), including content drawn to our attention by government requests. NCMEC coordinates with the International Center for Missing and Exploited Children and law enforcement authorities from around the world. If a request relates to a child exploitation or safety matter, please specify those circumstances (and include relevant NCMEC report identifiers) in the request to ensure that we are able to address these matters expeditiously and effectively.
We will search for and disclose data exactly as specified in an appropriate form of legal process and which we are reasonably able to locate and retrieve. We do not retain data for law enforcement purposes unless we receive a valid preservation request before a user has deleted that content from our service.
We will be unable to process overly broad or vague requests. All requests must identify requested records with specificity and include the following:
Minus reserves the right to notify Users of requests for their information prior to disclosure unless we are prohibited by law from doing so, or in exceptional circumstances, such as child exploitation cases, emergencies or when notice would be counterproductive. Law enforcement officials who believe that notification would jeopardize an investigation should obtain an appropriate court order or other appropriate process establishing that notice is prohibited. If your data request draws attention to an ongoing violation of our TOS, we will take action to prevent further abuse, including actions that may notify the user that we are aware of their misconduct.
Minus’ records are self-authenticating pursuant to law. If a special form of certification is required, please attach it to your records request.
We reserve the right to seek reimbursement for costs in responding to requests for information as provided by law. These fees apply on a per account basis. We may also charge additional fees for costs incurred in responding to unusual or burdensome requests.
We may waive these fees in matters investigating potential harm to children, Minus and Users, and emergency requests.
