ABOUT OUR PLATFORM
#paid provides a proprietary platform (the “Platform”) and related services for brands and social network celebrities to connect for the purpose of running sponsored marketing campaigns ("Services"). Individuals, corporations, or other entities may register for an account on #paid's platform ("Account") and become members of the Platform ("Members", “you” and “your”). #paid's Services allow for an individual, corporation, or other entity who is interested in creating a marketing campaign ("Advertiser") to register for an account and search for influencers to work with for an Advertiser’s campaign ("Campaign").
When an Advertiser finds a celebrity or their authorized representatives/agents with an Account ("Celebrity" or "Celebrities") that they would like to work with, they may submit a collaboration request (“Campaign Request”) to the Celebrity, including a Campaign brief setting out all necessary details of the Campaign. Upon submitting the Campaign Request, the Advertiser will be pre-authorized for the cost of the Celebrity plus #paid’s Service Fee and any applicable taxes if paying with a credit card. Once a Celebrity accepts the Campaign Request, the Advertiser and accepted Celebrity or Celebrities agree to the initial terms of the Campaign ("Campaign Agreement") and the Advertiser will be charged a Service Fee for the collaboration. The Advertiser and Celebrity will be provided access to a private interactive forum on the Platform with live-chat features ("Workroom") where they can collaborate on the content to be posted and details of the Campaign. The Celebrity will submit a final preview ("Final Preview") which the Advertiser can approve or reject. Add-on services ("Add-ons") may be requested to be additionally included in the Final Preview for which an additional fee must be submitted. If the Final Preview is rejected by the Advertiser, a Celebrity may edit and upload a new Final Preview. Upon acceptance by an Advertiser of a Final Preview, the accepted work will be considered a Final Deliverable. The Celebrity may publicly post the Final Deliverable and submit the unique link to the Workroom for verification ("Final Deliverable Link"). If the Advertiser rejects the Final Deliverable Link, the Workroom will be temporarily closed and a dispute resolution process will be facilitated by #paid to assist the Advertiser and Celebrity in resolving any issues. If the Advertiser provides approval of the Final Deliverable Link, the Campaign funds will be released from #paid and the Celebrity will receive payment less any amounts due to #paid for the Campaign on the next scheduled payment date, provided the payment amount is above the earnings threshold. See Section 7, Service Fees and Payment for more information. The Advertiser may require the Celebrity to remove the Final Deliverable from public posting or distribution for any reason. #paid offers the Services for your business purposes, and not for personal, household, or consumer use. #paid is not a party to any Campaign Agreements between its Members. #paid does not employ Celebrities, is not an employment agency for Advertisers, and is not in the business of providing payment processing services.
There is no cost for signing up for an Account. If you are an individual, you must be over the age of majority in your jurisdiction of residence who can form legally binding contracts to register for an Advertiser Account. You must be over the age of 18 to register for a Celebrity Account and of an age to legally perform the work in any Campaign listing or any other work associated with a Campaign for which you submit a bid. You are solely responsible for ensuring that the use of the Platform and Services in accordance with these Terms of Service in your jurisdiction of residence is permitted by law or regulation. If such use is not so permitted by law, #paid prohibits all use and access to the Website and Services. If the Advertiser or Celebrity is a corporation, partnership, association or other business entity, you agree that you have the ability to bind the corporation, partnership, association or other business entity to these Terms of Service. You agree to provide current, complete and accurate information and to promptly update all account information to keep your account current, complete and accurate. You may change or update your account information by clicking on settings after you log in to your account.
You may create an Agency Account and add Members to your Account for whom you are authorized to act as associated Agency Account Members. The Member who created the Agency Account may grant Agency Account Administrators certain administration privileges. You are responsible for ensuring that all use of the Services by Agency Account Members complies with these Terms of Service, and you are liable for all actions of Agency Account Members in the Agency Account. #paid does not control fees charged by an Agency Account holder to its Agency Account Members and is not responsible for payments by Agency Account holders to Agency Account Members for services associated with #paid Services. Any disputes regarding these payments are between the Agency Account holder and its Agency Account Members.
Celebrity Account Information
If you register for a Celebrity Account, you will be required to link to your Account an authorized third party social media account (e.g., Instagram.). By linking to this social media account, you understand that we will obtain certain information about you from your social media account, which may include your first and last name, number of followers, biography, and profile picture. The latest posts from this account, including metrics related to the social media account, such as likes as applicable, will be included in your Celebrity Account profile.
Each Member is responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of their password and we strongly recommend that you do not disclose your password to anyone. Each Member that is also an Agency Account owner or Agency Account Administrator must keep the passwords of the Member Accounts confidential and only for use by the authorized individuals. You must notify us if you become aware of a potential breach of security, such as unauthorized disclosure of your user name and password. You may not transfer or sell your Account to another party.
Account Termination by #paid
#paid may terminate, suspend, or otherwise restrict or prohibit access to our Services, remove hosted content such as your Account and Campaigns, and take technical and legal steps to prohibit you from using our Services for any reason and without prior notice.
Account Closure by Member
Your Account can only be closed once all obligations in association with the Account have been satisfied and you have provided written notice to firstname.lastname@example.org and received written confirmation from #paid. See Section 17, Termination and Suspension for more details.
SERVICE FEES AND PAYMENT
We do not charge a fee to open an Account. However, we charge service fees ("Service Fee") in association with certain of the features of Services.
Campaign Service Fees
We apply Service Fees to all Campaigns. A Service Fee payable by the Advertiser ("Campaign Service Fee") will be added to the Campaign funds. Applicable taxes will apply to the Service Fee, the amount of which will be based upon the province or territory where a corporation is resident for tax purposes, or, for natural persons, the province or jurisdiction of residence. Neither the Advertiser nor the Celebrity are entitled to any interest on Campaign funds. For a list of examples of how taxes may apply, please click here.
For Campaigns managed by #paid (a “Managed Campaign”), #paid charges a fee (the “Managed Service Fee”), plus applicable taxes.
When you transmit funds to #paid that are not yet associated with a Campaign, no Campaign Service Fee is charged. When these funds are used towards a Campaign, the Campaign Service Fee will apply and be added to the Campaign funds and applicable taxes will apply.
Advertisers who would like to enhance the success of or vary the requirements of its Campaign may agree within the Workroom to pay a Celebrity for Add-Ons and milestones. Service Fees and applicable taxes apply to these amounts.
Campaigns. Payments owing for approved Final Deliverables are delivered to Creators on pay dates that are scheduled every two weeks, falling on the 15th and 30th of every month. Following approval by the Advertiser of the Final Deliverable Link, the funds will be released from Hashtag Paid Inc. and payable to the Creator (minus Campaign Service Fees and applicable taxes) at the next scheduled pay day. Creator Account holdings of Campaign payments must meet a minimum threshold of $250 USD before a Creator will qualify for payment of Campaign earnings. If the minimum threshold of $250 USD has not been met, holdings will be held (i) until the next scheduled pay day immediately after the minimum threshold has been met. Payments to Creators will be made by the method preferred in the Creator Account, defaulting to their online payment account (PayPal). Please keep your email address and information accurate and up to date.
Managed Campaigns. For Managed Campaigns, fifty percent (50%) of the Managed Service Fee is due and payable as a non-refundable deposit within fourteen (14) days of the date of the Campaign Agreement. Upon the Celebrity accepting a Campaign Request, fifty percent (50%) of the Celebrity’s post-price is immediately due and payable to #paid and is non-refundable. Once the Celebrity creates content for the Campaign, the balance of the Celebrity’s post-price becomes payable and is non-refundable, unless the Celebrity is required to publicly post the content as part of the Campaign, in which case an additional twenty five percent (25%) of the Celebrity’s post- price becomes payable and non-refundable. Once a Celebrity that is required to publicly post content as part of a Campaign publicly posts the content, the remaining twenty five percent (25%) of the Celebrity’s post-price is payable and non-refundable. Billing for the balance of the Managed Service Fee (based on milestones achieved) will occur once a month on the last day of every month and fees billed are due and payable within fourteen (14) days of the invoice date.
All amounts listed on the Website refer to and are payable in U.S. dollars. We are not responsible for currency fluctuations or for the currency exchange rates used by our or your payment processors.
You are responsible for determining whether applicable income or other taxes apply to services conducted pursuant to a Campaign and to collect, report, and remit the correct tax to the appropriate tax authority. If you are required to charge or withhold tax in respect of any fees associated with a Campaign, you are solely responsible for doing so and including taxes charged in any Campaign bid and Add-ons.
The terms of the Campaign Agreement apply to all Campaigns accepted by a Celebrity and Advertiser. Advertiser will fund its Campaign by remitting funds for the full cost of the Campaign plus all amounts owing to #paid in respect of the Campaign. Advertiser and Celebrity can agree to Campaign terms, Add-Ons, and other services in communications in the Workroom, but may not otherwise modify the terms of the Campaign Agreement or these Terms of Service. Campaigns may only be terminated upon approval by #paid. Upon approval to terminate the Campaign, Campaign funds will be returned to the Advertiser’s Account, less the Campaign Service Fee and applicable taxes. If a Campaign is terminated by the Advertiser or Celebrity, the Advertiser is not entitled to the return of any product, services, or benefits already provided to a Celebrity in association with the Campaign.
Advertisers that submit Campaign Requests agree that each Campaign Request will contain clear information about the (i) scope, (ii) deliverables, and (iii) time frames of the Campaign. We encourage you to evaluate each Campaign Request against the Celebrity's profile, social statistics, past posts, and other standards. #paid may, in its sole discretion, refuse any Campaign Request. Notification that a Campaign Request has been accepted does not mean that #paid endorses or is in any way responsible for the content of the Campaign Request. Campaign Requests for free services are not permitted. Campaign Requests that involve receipt of more than $10,000 USD by #paid or payment of more than $10,000 USD to a Celebrity require prior approval by #paid, which approval may be requested by contacting email@example.com. Campaign Requests may be amended or revoked by an Advertiser prior to acceptance by a Celebrity. Information in Campaign Requests is strictly confidential and may not be used or disclosed without the express consent of the Advertiser.
In connection with Campaign Requests, the following conduct or content is prohibited:
- Sending a Campaign Request or otherwise using #paid's Services to conduct any transaction or transfer content that would violate any laws or regulations of any applicable jurisdiction, to encourage or compel a Member to violate any laws or regulations of any applicable jurisdiction, or to violate any agreement, including the terms of service of another website;
- Sending a Campaign Request for free services or for equity or commission only, or that requires or requests that a Celebrity provide free services or content as part of a Campaign or as a condition of consideration for the Campaign;
- Sending a Campaign Request that requires or encourages a Celebrity to not disclose a material connection between the Advertiser and Celebrity;
- Sending a Campaign Request that is posted without the intention of the Advertiser to complete a Campaign; and
- Sending a Campaign Request regarding sexually explicit or adult materials or tasks.
Communication of your Name and Trade-Mark
By sending a Campaign Request, you agree that you have the right and ability to and hereby grant #paid a non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, and irrevocable right to use, reproduce, and communicate the name and trade-mark of your company or organization as a sender of Campaign Requests on the #paid Platform and user of #paid’s Services in any media whatsoever, including in #paid marketing materials, unless requested otherwise in writing to #paid at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Celebrities are required to disclose that certain posts by the Celebrity are paid for by an Advertiser or that the Celebrity has partnered with the Advertiser, in each case by using a hashtag (#ad, #paid, or #sponsored). A Celebrity must disclose the Celebrity’s connection to or partnership with the Advertiser if: (a) the Celebrity publishes a post that a consumer is likely to believe reflects the Celebrity’s personal opinion, belief or experience; (b) the post promotes the Advertiser or its products and/or services; and (c) the Celebrity is receiving payment or an incentive from the Advertiser. The foregoing Celebrity disclosure obligation is a term of all Campaign Agreements.
Any disputes with another Member arising from your use of the Services is between the Members and not with #paid. However, #paid offers a mechanism to assist with the resolution of disputes. If a Final Deliverable is not approved or is rejected by an Advertiser, an automatic Dispute Request Form may be completed by the Advertiser and sent to #paid. If the dispute is not resolved between the Advertiser and Celebrity within 60 days, #paid may, in its sole discretion, return the funds, less the applicable Campaign Service Fee and taxes, to the Advertiser, or remit the funds to the Celebrity, less applicable Services Fees and taxes, determined by an assessment of whether the Final Deliverable Link fulfilled the Celebrity's Campaign obligations. Neither the Advertiser or Celebrity have any claim against #paid arising from disputes associated with #paid's Services.
RELATIONSHIP WITH #PAID
No agency, fiduciary, partnership, joint venture, employee/employer, franchisor-franchisee is intended or created by your use of #paid's Services.
#PAID HAS NO CONTROL OVER AND DOES NOT GUARANTEE THE TRUTH OR ACCURACY OF CAMPAIGN DESCRIPTIONS CONTAINED IN CAMPAIGN REQUESTS OR THE ABILITY OF A CELEBRITY TO COMPLETE THE CAMPAIGN TO THE SATISFACTION OF THE ADVERTISER. ANY CAMPAIGN AGREEMENT OR OTHER ARRANGEMENT IS DIRECTLY BETWEEN THE MEMBERS. #PAID DOES NOT REPRESENT, WARRANT, OR GUARANTEE THAT A CELEBRITY WILL ACTUALLY COMPLETE AN ACCEPTED CAMPAIGN TO THE SATISFACTION OF THE ADVERTISER, OR THAT AN ADVERTISER WILL APPROVE THE COMPLETION OF A CAMPAIGN OR PAY A CELEBRITY.
