I will comply with Elgato's Brand Guidelines

The Elgato marks are the words, logos, graphics, designs and other indicators that identify Elgato as the source of a product, template, or service.

You may use Elgato's marks in connection with your products, templates, or other content only if you comply with Elgato's Brand Guidelines.

If we reach out and ask you to stop using Elgato's name or marks, you must immediately comply with the request.

Report a violation

Help us keep the Elgato Marketplace and community a safe and fun environment.

Each of us plays a crucial role in the Elgato community. If you see something you think may violate our guidelines, please help us by contacting us.

When submitting a report, please provide as much information as possible. This may include links, photos, videos, and content descriptions. This way, we can quickly identify the content in question. We may remove the entire product, template, or content that violates our guidelines.

There are many scenarios where disputes can be resolved directly between Elgato users. If one of your creations was posted by another user or organization, you could try contacting the violator directly and ask for the content to be taken down. Ultimately, if that doesn't work, you can file a DMCA report.

We may work with law enforcement, including when we believe that there's a risk of physical harm or threat to public safety.
