  • Copy of the material that has been removed or access to it has been taken out, and the location of the material before it was removed.
  • A document from the journalist, writer, or content provider made in good faith stating that the material removed was due to mistake or not proper identification of the material; and

The document will contain information that Media Buzzer may replace the material already removed or give back access again to the previous location of the page within 10 business days.
