Description of the Snips Platform
- Overview. The Snips Platform is a particular aspect of Snips Media's overall Service offerings (as described more fully in the Terms & Conditions). The Snips Platform provides an online platform for brands and advertisers (together with any agents authorized to act on their behalf) (each, an "Advertiser") to build and manage influencer marketing Programs (each, a "Program") that may include Influencer relationship management, sponsored content ("Sponsored Content"), and any number of advertising campaigns (each an "Advertising Campaign"). Advertisers may set up their account for the Snips Platform by executing a separate Subscription Agreement (the "Subscription Agreement"), at which point they may build and manage Programs and Advertising Campaigns. With each Program, you may collaborate with Influencers to promote an Advertiser's brand, products, or services through Sponsored Content, Advertising Campaigns, social media posts, live streams, appearances, modeling, or other types of promotions (collectively, the "Advertising Promotions") on Influencers' websites, blogs, social media, or other platforms on behalf of Advertisers using the Snips Platform.
- Subscription Services. With a subscription to the Snips Platform, you will be granted access to the Snips Program Manager platform (the "Platform"). Through the Platform, you will be able to quickly and efficiently create and manage Programs, onboard Influencers to participate in your Programs, manage Influencer status and relationships throughout the Program, review and accept individual proposals from Influencers for the Program (each, a "Proposal"), manage the individual services with each Influencer within the Program (each, a "Project"), communicate with Influencers, setup and negotiate contracts for each Project, process payment on completion of each Project, and measure results of the Programs with analytics and reporting tools.
- Influencer Agreement. As part of each Program, Advertisers and Influencers will be required to enter into a separate service contract that sets forth each parties' respective rights and obligations. This agreement (an "Influencer Agreement") is a contractual relationship directly between the Advertiser and the Influencer. Advertiser and Influencer have complete discretion both with regard to whether to enter into an Influencer Agreement (i.e. execute a Project) and with regard to the terms of any such Influencer Agreement. For convenience, Snips Media provides Advertisers and Influencers with a template agreement that they may use. Advertisers may additionally append additional documents to the contract, such as brand guidelines, non-disclosure agreements, or other requirements (each, a "Schedule"), or an Advertiser and Influencer may agree to a separate Influencer Agreement (and any other agreement, such as a confidentiality agreement, assignment agreement, etc.) governing each Project and the overall relationship, so long as any such agreements or Schedules do not conflict with, narrow, or expand Snips Media's rights and obligations under this Advertising Policy, any Subscription Agreement or the Terms & Conditions.
- Initiating Project and Facilitating Payment. In order to launch a specific Project, Advertiser must first fully fund the Project costs with Snips Media. A Project may be funded through the prepaid or, in some limited circumstances, postpaid mechanisms described in Section 4 below. Upon the funding of a given Project, Influencer shall begin to perform the requisite services. Upon Influencer's satisfactory completion of the requisite services, Advertiser must then notify Snips Media that it can release payment to Influencer. Snips Media shall not be obligated or required to release any payment to Influencer until such time as Advertiser has provided Snips Media with the appropriate notice and funding.
- Influencer-Advertiser Relationship. Regardless of whether Advertisers and Influencers agree to use the template Influencer Agreement provided by Snips Media or a separately negotiated agreement, Influencer and Advertiser acknowledge, agree, and understand that Snips Media is not a party to any Influencer Agreement, that the formation of an Influencer Agreement will not, under any circumstance, create an employment or other service relationship between Snips Media and any Advertiser or Influencer, or a partnership or joint venture between Snips Media and Advertiser or Influencer.
- Additional Terms for Advertisers. As an Advertiser, you understand that once you agree to the terms of a Project with an Influencer, you may not then attempt to renegotiate the terms of payment and/or specific services that Influencer is required to perform. Advertisers further agree to comply with all terms set forth in any Influencer Agreement and other agreements it enters into directly with Influencers (regardless of whether the terms require performance through the Snips Platform or involve external obligations). In the event an Advertiser violates any of the terms or conditions in this Advertising Policy, the Terms & Conditions, the Subscription Agreement, and any agreements entered into directly with Influencers (i.e. an Influencer Agreement), Snips Media reserves the right to suspend or cancel Advertiser's account or otherwise terminate its access to the Snips Platform and Service in general.
- Additional Terms for Influencers. As an Influencer, you understand that once you submit a Proposal, you are representing to an Advertiser that you will perform the services for the fees set forth in your Proposal. Once you agree to the terms of a Project with Advertiser, you may not then attempt to renegotiate the terms of payment and/or specific services that you agreed to perform. You agree to comply with all terms set forth in any Influencer Agreement and other agreements it enters into directly with Advertisers (regardless of whether the terms require performance through the Snips Platform or involve external obligations). In the event an Influencer violates any of the terms or conditions in this Advertising Policy, the Terms & Conditions, and any agreements entered into directly with Advertisers (i.e. an Influencer Agreement), Snips Media reserves the right to suspend or cancel Influencer's account or otherwise terminate its access to the Snips Platform and Service in general.
- Individual Campaigns. In lieu of signing up for a subscription to the Snips Platform, Advertisers may also still use the Snips Platform for individual Advertising Campaigns.
- Platform Only. Snips Media makes available an online platform that enables Advertisers to better manage their influencer campaigns with Influencers. Snips Media does not itself create or manage Programs (except as otherwise indicated) and is in no way affiliated with Advertisers, Influencers, or the circumstances surrounding each Advertising Campaign. Unless explicitly specified otherwise in this Advertising Policy or the Terms & Conditions, Snips Media's responsibilities are limited to (i) facilitating the availability of the Snips Platform, and (ii) facilitating the payment process for some services through an authorized third party payment processor.
By using the Snips Platform, you agree that any legal remedy or liability that you seek to obtain for actions or omissions of other registered users or other third parties will be limited to a claim against the particular users or other third parties who caused you harm. You agree not to attempt to impose liability on or seek any legal remedy from Snips Media with respect to such actions or omissions. Accordingly, we encourage you to communicate directly with other users on the Snips Platform regarding any Programs in which you were an Influencer or Advertiser.
Payment Processing Information
- Subscription Fees. If you are accessing the Snips Platform as part of your subscription, you will be responsible for all subscription fees set forth in the applicable Subscription Agreement. Delinquent invoices and accounts are subject to interest of one percent (1%) per month, (12% annum) on any outstanding balance, or the maximum permitted by law, whichever is less, plus all expenses of collection. In addition to these fees, you may be responsible for some or all of the below payments depending on your specific use of the Snips Platform.
- Advertising Payments. If applicable based on the specific Program or Advertising Campaign and to the extent provided by the relevant terms of an Influencer Agreement, all payments for Advertising Promotions (each, an "Advertising Payment") will be made by you directly to Snips through the Snips Platform, and not to or through any of Snips' Influencers. All Advertising Payments will be in U.S. dollars, unless otherwise determined by Snips. As described above and below, Advertiser is solely responsible for funding any active Advertising Campaign or Project, as well as for authorizing the release of funds to Influencer.
- Payment Timing. In order to initiate a Project or Advertising Campaign within a particular Program, you will submit a credit card for authorization of payment(s) on a prepaid (via credit card) basis ("Prepaid Payment") or postpaid basis ("Postpaid Payment"). Prepaid Payments will be authorized at the time the Project or Advertising Campaign is submitted, for the full amount of the Advertising Campaign or the applicable Project (as appropriate). The Advertiser's credit card will be charged on a weekly basis based on actual deliverables and the associated spend incurred over each seven-day period, as reported by the Snips Platform. Postpaid Payment will be net 30 days following your receipt of the invoice for such Advertising Promotion from Snips Media. Snips may provide you with Postpaid Payment terms upon your request, subject to you undergoing a credit check at your cost, conducted by Snips.
- Payment Liability. Snips will hold you, and not your Advertiser, responsible for all Advertising Payments. Snips may, in its sole discretion, preclude your future Advertising Promotions from being subject to Postpaid Payment terms, in the event of your late or non-payment of amounts owing for Advertising Promotions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this subsection 4(c) will preclude you from obtaining Prepaid Payment terms on future Advertising Promotions in the event of your late or non-payment of an Advertising Payment.
- Under-Delivery of Advertisements. If actual deliverables (e.g. impressions, clicks or other desired actions) ("Deliverables") for any Advertising Campaign (or Project within an Advertising Campaign) fall below guaranteed levels set forth on an insertion order, then:
- for an Advertising Campaign or Project that is subject to Prepaid Payment, you will have the option to (1) receive a prorated refund from Snips for the amount of the Deliverables in respect of the Advertising Campaign or Project that was under-delivered; or (2) extend the duration of the Advertising Campaign or Project until all Deliverables in respect of the Advertising Campaign or Project are delivered to you; or
- for an Advertising Campaign or Project that is subject to Postpaid Payment, you will only be charged for the Deliverables actually delivered as of the end date of such Advertising Campaign or Project.
- Tracking, Reporting and Invoicing. Snips Media will track and report the delivery of Advertising Campaigns and Projects (and Advertising Promotions) for the purposes of calculating advertising fees to be invoiced to you, the Advertiser. For greater certainty, you may have the option to track and report delivery of Advertising Campaigns and Projects (and Advertising Promotions) using a third party ad server. However, tracking and reporting numbers from the Snips Platform will be final and will not be subject to discrepancy resolution.
- Fees. In consideration of your use of the Snips Platform and in addition to any subscription fees you are responsible for, you may be charged a fee based on either a cost-per-view (CPV), cost-per-click (CPC), cost-per-lead (CPL), cost-per-engagement (CPE), or cost-per-acquisition (CPA) in accordance with the Advertising Campaign or Project on the Snips Platform (the "Fee"). Snips reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to change or add a Fee for your use of the Snips Platform.
Your Registration Obligations
In consideration of your use of the Snips Platform, you agree to: provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Snips Platform registration form (such information, the "Registration Data") and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or Snips Media has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Snips Media has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Snips Platform (or any portion thereof).
Account, Password and Security
You will create a password and account during the Snips Platform registration process using the available interface. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account, and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your password or account. You agree to (a) immediately notify Snips Media of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security; and (b) ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. Snips Media cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this Section 6. Snips Media reserves the right to disable any account issued to you at any time in Snips Media's sole discretion. If Snips Media disables access to an account issued to you, you may be prevented from using or accessing the Snips Platform, your account details or any information that is stored with your account.
