If you feel that content in WRRO infringes UK law, please notify WRRO by emailing eprints@whiterose.ac.uk including the URL of the record and the reason for the withdrawal request.

1. Your email will be acknowledged and an initial assessment will be undertaken once WRRO staff become aware of the complaint. We aim to acknowledge and assess the complaint within seven days of receipt.

2. Where grounds for complaint are plausible, the material will be withdrawn from public view.

3. It may be necessary for us to seek legal advice before the complaint can be fully resolved.

4. If the complaint is well founded, the material will be permanently withdrawn from the repository. In some cases a metadata record may remain. This will be agreed on a case by case basis.
