How does Point de Contact handle my report?
Upon receipt of your report, Point de Contact:
Checks that the reported content falls within its remit
Assesses whether the reported content is potentially illegal under French law.
Content that is potentially illegal under French law is systematically:
Located geographically by tracing the IP address
Reported to the competent French authorities (Central Office for the Fight against Crime related to Information and Communication Technology, OCLCTIC)
Notified to the hosting provider, if the content is located in France
Forwarded to a partner of the INHOPE international network, if the content is hosted abroad, and in a country where such a partner is established.
The purpose of Point de Contact's action is twofold:
Help remove illegal content from the Internet
Enable the judicial authorities, where appropriate, to quickly carry out investigations.
