      • Newspaper Matters may send you immediately a copy of your reply

      • Newspaper Matters may replace the removed material or remove the access restriction to the material within ten (10) to fourteen (14) work days after receipt and evaluation of the reply; provided that the responsible person at Newspaper Matters for these matters has not received an official notification from you informing it of the commencement of a legal action in relation to the matter in question.
