We may change our eligibility criteria at any time, and reserve the right, but are not obligated, to further limit access to the Services to any person, entity, geographic region, or jurisdiction.
4. Account Registration and Information.While you may access some of the Services without registration, access to many features requires registration. As a registered Member of the Services, you may act in the following capacities:
- “Influencer” – An Influencer refers to Users who are Members of the Services for the purpose of communicating and connecting with Brands (defined below). Influencers must have over 5000 followers on one or more of the following social media platforms in order to use the Services: Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, Instagram, and any other platform that we may deem acceptable from time to time in our sole discretion (collectively, the “Channels”);
- “Brand” – A Brand refers to Users, such as advertisers, marketers or their agents, that are authorized by us to use the Services in order to monitor marketing efforts and to seek Influencers to market or publicize certain approved Brand’s products or services (“Brand Content”).
Account registration requires you to submit to Socialix certain personal information, such as your name, e-mail address, password, and mailing address. Influencers must register via one of the Channels and agree to allow us to access and publically share certain information made available via the Channels. Members may be required to provide a valid payment and/or payout method which may include credit card, PayPal, direct deposit, wire transfer, and/or other banking information, and you authorize us to charge, deduct from, send and receive transfers, or make payouts to such accounts.
Brand SubscriptionsBrands must subscribe to the Services by either (1) entering into a month-to-month agreement directly on the Services or (2) entering into a separate Subscription Agreement with us. If you are a Brand, we may contact you after you complete the registration form and may send you a proposed Subscription Agreement, which will include a fee proposal and other subscription terms. Brands must provide valid credit card billing information and agree to be charged fees in accordance with a month-to-month plan or their Subscription Agreement in order to use the Services.
Please review our termination policy (set forth in Section 5, below) before you subscribe to the Services.
Taxes and Fees.Members agree to pay all applicable fees and taxes related to use of the Services. Some payment or payout methods may involve the use of third-party processors, which may impose additional charges on you, for which you are solely responsible.
Your earnings may be subject to income and other taxes. We may require that you provide us with certain taxpayer information, including without limitation a W-9, Form W-8ECI, or Form 8BEN. At our discretion and as required by law, we may provide you with a summary of your reportable earnings such as a Form 1099-K or a Form 1042-S. You are solely responsible for any applicable sales or Value Added Taxes (“VAT”) and for reporting any taxable income to the IRS or tax authorities in your jurisdiction.
Accurate Account Information.You agree to provide us with complete, accurate, and updated account and profile information. Incorrect or outdated information may lead to delays or errors, including the inability to make or receive payments (for which we will not be responsible) or in the termination or suspension of your account.
Security and Confidentiality.You are solely responsible for maintaining the security and confidentiality of your account, password, and login credentials and for all activities that occur under your login or account. We are not liable for any damages or loss caused from any unauthorized account actions. Please notify us at email@example.com immediately if you become aware of any unauthorized use of your account.
5. Termination.All provisions of these Terms which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination; including, but not limited to, provisions governing intellectual property rights, limitation of liability, disclaimer of warranty, and indemnification. If you entered into any obligations with us or other Users prior to termination, you may still be bound by those terms even after your account is terminated.
If your account or the account of any other Member is terminated, you may lose all associated information, including User Content (defined in Section 9, below). Even after your account has been terminated, your campaign histories will remain accessible by other Members, and any license granted by you under these Terms shall survive. Copies of User Content may have been retained as part of our routine backups.
Socialix Right to Terminate.We reserve the right to refuse registration, suspend, block, prevent access to, or terminate any account and/or your right to use the Services at any time, with or without cause, in our sole discretion and without prior notice to you. We also reserve the right to limit or prohibit all activity that, in our sole judgment, appears to be malicious or unlawful.
Members’ Right to Terminate.Influencers can delete their accounts at any time on the Services.
Brands with a month-to-month subscription to the Services can terminate their accounts by sending a written notification of termination thirty (30) days in advance to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Brands who have entered into a separate Subscription Agreement with us can terminate their accounts solely in accordance with the terms of their Subscription Agreement.
6. Brand and Influencer Agreement.Among other things, the Services may facilitate the creation of Brand marketing or advertising initiatives requiring the services of one or more Influencers (a “Campaign”). Such Campaigns shall be pursuant to the terms of a Member’s offer via the Services detailing relevant information such as the Campaign description, requirements, restrictions, disclosures, compensation, schedules, Campaign duration, marketing Channels, and the Brand Content to be marketed (collectively, the “Offer”). Members may withdraw any unaccepted Offer within 48 hours of publication of same via the Services.
Once a non-offering party has accepted an Offer, the terms of the Offer shall constitute a binding agreement by and between the Influencer and Brand (a “Campaign Agreement”). The Influencer and Brand are solely responsible for the exchange of any obligations set forth in the Campaign Agreement. Influencer obligations may include the creation of custom content that incorporates the Brand Content (the “Influencer Content”). Influencers shall submit Influencer Content (a “Submission”) for Brand’s prior written approval before publication of Influencer Content via the Channels. Brands have seven (7) days from Submission to either approve (a “Brand Approval”) or request a modification of such Submission. If the Brand has not otherwise requested a modification within seven (7) days of the Submission, such a Submission shall be deemed to have received Brand Approval. Upon receipt of Brand Approval, the Influencer is authorized to and shall publish and/or distribute such Influencer Content in accordance with the Campaign Agreement (the “Transaction”).
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, Brand Approval shall constitute a grant by the Brand of a limited, non-exclusive license to the Influencer in and to any and all applicable Brand Content, to the fullest extent necessary for Influencer to market, display, promote, advertise, distribute, broadcast and otherwise disseminate such Brand Content via the Channels in accordance with the terms of the Campaign Agreement. Subject to the terms of the foregoing limited license and any other license set forth in these Terms, Transactions shall not be deemed to assign or otherwise affect, and the Brand shall retain its right, title and interest in and to its Brand Content.
Likewise, notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, by entering into a Campaign Agreement with a Brand, Influencers grant to such a Brand a royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive and fully sub-licensable right and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, advertise, broadcast, perform, display and otherwise disseminate such Influencer Content (in whole or part) worldwide and/or to incorporate it in other works in any form, media, or technology (including the Channels) now known or later developed. Subject to the terms of the foregoing limited license and any other license set forth in these Terms, Transactions shall not be deemed to assign or otherwise affect, and the Influencer shall retain its right, title and interest in and to its Influencer Content.
Brands reserve the right, in their sole discretion, to require that Influencers immediately remove or otherwise refrain from publishing any Influencer Content. If an Influencer fails to remove such Influencer Content or markets, displays, promotes, advertises, distributes, broadcasts, disseminates, or publishes Brand Content without Brand Approval, that Influencer (1) shall be in breach of these Terms and its account may be terminated; (2) shall not be entitled to any payment set forth in the Offer; and (3) may be liable to the Brand for damages to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Facilitated Payments.Socialix may agree to facilitate the transmission of any payments in connection with a Campaign Agreement via the Services (each, a “Facilitated Payment”).
Before consummating a Transaction that includes a payment to an Influencer, the Brand must have first deposited with Socialix funds sufficient to meet its payment obligations. Where applicable, once an Influencer receives Brand Approval, undisputed funds due to that Influencer in accordance with the parties’ Campaign Agreement shall be released by Socialix to that Influencer via the payout method set in your account settings. The timing of Facilitated Payments depends on the payment or payout method.
NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, SOCIALIX IS NOT YOUR TRUSTEE OR FIDUCIARY, AND IS NOT A PARTY TO ANY AGREEMENTS BETWEEN MEMBERS.
We reserve the right to place a hold on a Facilitated Payment if we determine that the funds may be related to a breach of applicable law, to cooperate with law enforcement, or for any other reason that we deem necessary. All unused funds held by us on behalf of Brands are fully refundable unless otherwise due and owing to an Influencer.
Disputes between Members.Socialix may, in its sole discretion, attempt to resolve disputes between Members, but it has no obligation to do so. Email us at email@example.com if you are unable to resolve a dispute with another Member.
7. Marketing Laws & Disclosure.You are solely responsible for abiding by all laws and regulations that apply to you, including relevant advertising and marketing laws. Influencers must clearly disclose their connections with Brands, (i.e. the fact that a post is “sponsored by” a Brand) and shall comply with the Federal Trade Commission’s Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising (“FTC Guides”), the WOMMA (Word of Mouth Marketing Association) Code of Ethics and Social Media Disclosure Guide, and any other applicable federal, state, local, or foreign laws or regulations in existence now or in the future.
8. Links and Third-Party Accounts.The Website may contain links to third-party websites or resources. Socialix is not responsible or liable for: (i) the availability or accuracy of such websites or resources; or (ii) the content, products, or services on or available from such websites or resources. Links to such websites or resources do not imply our endorsement of them. You assume all risk arising from your use of any such websites or resources.
You will be able or required to connect your Socialix account with third-party accounts, including Channel accounts. By registering via or connecting with the Channels or other third-party accounts, you consent to the continuous release of information about you to others via the Services (in accordance with your privacy settings on those third-party sites). If you do not want information about you to be shared in this manner, do not use this feature. You can disable the connection between your Socialix account and any third-party account by accessing the “Settings” section of the Services. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Influencers must always connect the Services with at least one Channel on which they have 5000 or more followers.
Your relationships with third-party providers are governed solely by your agreements with those providers. If your or another User’s third-party account becomes unavailable or if Socialix’s access is terminated by a third-party service provider, then the content and information accessed via that third-party account will no longer be available on or through the Services.
9. User Content.“User Content” means any text, files, images, photos, video, sounds, profile information, Brand Content, Influencer Content, Submissions, communications, Offers, Campaigns, Campaign Agreements, specifications, works of authorship, or any other materials, data, or content you upload, post, share, transmit, or otherwise make available via the Services.
Except as otherwise set forth herein, we do not claim any ownership rights to User Content. We do, however, require certain licenses from you, as set forth in these Terms. For example, we need to be able to transmit, store and copy User Content in order to display it to you and other Users, to create data backups, and anything else we deem necessary to provide the Services. Your acceptance of the Terms gives us the permission to do so and grants us any rights necessary to provide the Services to you. This permission includes allowing us to use third-party service providers in the operation and administration of the Services, and the rights granted to us are extended to these third-parties to the degree necessary.
We may access your User Content as necessary to perform the Services, including to monitor your conduct and misuse or, in our sole discretion, to help resolve disputes between Members, although we have no obligation to do so. Actions reasonably necessary to perform the Services may include (but are not limited to) (a) advertising, marketing or otherwise promoting the Services; (b) responding to support requests and facilitating communication among Users; (c) investigating fraud, security, unlawful, or technical issues; and (d) enforcing these Terms. We reserve the right to review, remove, block, or modify any content on the Services, including User Content, without notice.

You agree to pay for all royalties, fees, and any other monies owing any person by reason of User Content you post on or through the Services.
You will defend, indemnify and hold us and our subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, employees, partners, and licensors harmless from any claim, demand, liabilities, loss, expenses or damages, including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising out of or related to your User Content or any other content you make available on the Services, your use of the Services, or your violation of these Terms.
