Organization Verification

How does organization verification work?
When adding the org domain, I get “pending verification” and no email is sent.

Hi @abdusahmbzuai.

The verification is manual on our side. As you probably noticed since your message (sorry for the late reply), your organization was verified successfully and now has the “Verified” badge.

hey, @pierric We just noticed that our organization is registered by the others. How can we reclaim it? As they are using our logos and all the related information, I am wondering how the verification is passed.

Hi @nan, anyone can create an org on hf.co and use the username/name they want for it. What the verification process does is adding a “Verified” badge testifying that the org is who they claim they are.

In this case, I suppose you’re talking about jina-ai (Jina AI). This org has not been verified by us and thus doesn’t have the verified badge. The different possibilities I see for you:

  • you can create a new org (like hf.co/jinaai) and ask for verification
  • we can also contact the owner of the org and ask them to transfer the ownership to you
  • ultimately, you can contact legal[at]hugginface.co if you think this org should be taken down (for instance for infringing on your IP, if it’s the case)
