They may also withdraw Sponsorships even once accepted based on their determination of the suitability of your profile or your posts. Sponsors also have full discretion of where content you create pursuant to Sponsorships can be displayed and may exercise this discretion at any time for any reason, including creating and enforcing whitelists of acceptable places.

2. WeAre8 does not warrant, promise or guarantee any level of brand sponsorships or pricing. WeAre8 has no control over Sponsor activity through WeAre8 and we are simply providing individuals the unique opportunity to have access to this advertising market through the WeAre8 mobile application. It is entirely up to you to earn your Sponsorships revenue by having great, engaging content, and building your own audience of followers who regularly view your content to demonstrate to Sponsors that their ads will perform well on your profile.

3. Except for the payments described below, WeAre8 does not take any responsibility for agreements reached between individuals and Sponsors using WeAre8.

4. You hereby grant to WeAre8 and Sponsor a worldwide, irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, royalty-free license, with the right to create derivative works, sublicense, use, edit, view, copy, adapt, modify, distribute, license, sell, host, market, transfer, publicly display, publicly perform, transmit, stream, broadcast, access, and otherwise fully exploit all content that you create (i.e. your posts) that is sponsored through WeAre8 as the platform currently exist or may be developed in the future.

5. Sponsors may give you content to use, like a logo, or an entire image to post.  You agree that the Sponsor owns that content and is giving you a limited license to use those materials only as part of the arrangement created by WeAre8 as part of the sponsorship agreement.

6. Unless otherwise specified by a sponsorship agreement, content that you create pursuant to that sponsorship agreement shall be considered a “work made for hire” according to U.S. copyright law, and such content (“Work Product”) and all intellectual property rights embodied therein shall be owned exclusively by the Sponsor.  In the event any portion of the Work Product is not considered “work made for hire” or as otherwise necessary to ensure full ownership of the Work Product by Sponsor, you assign to WeAre8 all right, title and interest in and to such Work Product.  You agree to sign any additional documents that may be reasonably necessary to effect such assignment.

7. You acknowledge that your use of WeAre8 means that we and Sponsors can use your sponsored content and include your name, likeness, social media handle, channel/blog name and similar attributes in any manner that we or Sponsors determine supports the purpose of these Terms, including use in any media that accepts advertising, promotional content or communications (such as, but not limited to, digital, print, television or radio). We and Sponsors also have full discretion to “boost” (i.e. to make into advertisements and increase visibility) your sponsored content on social media platforms.

VII. Revenue and Payments

1. Net Revenue: The listed sponsorship price you will earn upon completion reflects 65% of the Net Revenue.  5% is donated to a charity of the Sponsors choice and the 30% collected by WeAre8 is to compensate us for giving you access to this marketplace. We use the word “Net” in Net Revenue to indicate that the revenue is net of the direct, variable costs related to providing this service. Sponsor payments are gross to Sponsor, and WeAre8 will take its 30% fee from Sponsor payments it receives.  In each case, WeAre8 will also deduct an estimate of your hosting, streaming and storage costs. If WeAre8 is the Sponsor of a Creator Challenge Sponsorship, Net Revenue will be specified by the terms of that Sponsorship.

2. You will be paid for your Net Revenue approximately 30 days after the sponsorship is completed.  This length of time is to allow WeAre8 adequate time to collect payment from Sponsors and then calculate the Net Revenue amounts. In the unlikely event that Sponsors defaults on the payments owed to WeAre8, WeAre8 does not assume the risk of payment to you.  In other words, WeAre8 will only pay individuals after WeAre8 has collected payment from Sponsors, and after it has calculated Net Revenue.

VIII. Collecting your earned Net Revenue

1. At the present time, WeAre8 will only distribute funds for earned Net Revenue through PayPal. We do not offer alternative payment methods so you must have a PayPal account to receive payment.

2. The minimum amount that you can request for payout is $1.00.

3. At the time of disbursement, PayPal’s fee of 2% (capped at $2.00) will be deducted. PayPal fee can be changed at any time by PayPal without a notice.

4. The first time that you select to “Redeem” funds from your account, you will be asked to link the PayPal account that you want to use for collection of payment.

(1) WeAre8 is responsible for making sure that the correct amount of Net Revenue is submitted to PayPal for credit to your PayPal account.

(2) WeAre8 assumes no liability or responsibility for the services associated with your PayPal account.  You are subject to their terms of use including, but not limited to, PayPal’s own payment terms such as the length of time taken to credit the funds into your account.

(3)
Note that PayPal may require the verification of additional account information for the disbursement of certain amounts to maintain compliance with financial regulations and tax reporting.

VIII. Limits of Liability

We are not liable for any lost profits, lost data, lost opportunities, costs of cover, exemplary, punitive, personal injury, wrongful death, special, incidental, indirect or other consequential damages, each of which is hereby excluded. Our liability for any direct damages may not exceed the amounts actually paid by us to you in connection with WeAre8 in the last six (6) months. We are obligated to perform only those duties expressly described in these terms and in any agreement between you and any Sponsor. We are not be liable for any error in judgment, for any act taken or not taken, or for any mistake of fact or law, except for our gross negligence or willful misconduct.
