Hypemarket Terms of Use

Last Updated: March 31st, 2015

The following terms of use (the "Terms of Use") govern your access to and use of (1) the Hypemarket website located at http://www.Hypemarket.com (the “Website”), (2) the Hypemarket online platform facilitating the matching of persons offering to create promotional online media content (each, an “Instagrammer”) and Campaign Initiators (as defined below), and (3) all other services provided by Hypemarket, as described on the Website (collectively, the "Platform”). These Terms of Use form an agreement between Hypemarket Inc. ("Hypemarket", “us”, “we”, “our”) and you. The term "you" refers to the person or entity visiting the Platform, browsing or otherwise using the Platform, or communicating with individuals or businesses registered with Hypemarket (each, a “Campaign Initiator”) for the purpose of creating promotional online media content for your products or services (each, a “Campaign”). By accessing and using (the term “use” when used herein in respect of the Platform shall mean access or use, and using shall have a corresponding meaning) the Platform, you accept and agree to be bound by and comply with these Terms of Use. If you do not accept and agree to be bound by these Terms of Use, please do not access or use the Platform. If you are accessing or using the Platform on behalf of another person or a corporate entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind such person or entity to these Terms of Use.

The Platform is provided solely (the “Permitted Use”) to: (1) assist you in gathering information about the various types of Campaign opportunities and Campaign Initiators available on the Platform, including profiles, price ranges, and Campaign descriptions (each, a “Campaign Initiator Profile”); (2) enable you to post information regarding yourself and to respond to any Campaign opportunities; (3) post reviews of Campaign Initiators; (4) facilitate communication with Campaign Initiators with the objective of entering into a Campaign Agreement; and (5) facilitate the transmission of payments from the Campaign Initiator to you under a Campaign Agreement (“Platform Services”).

Changes to these Terms of Use and Platform

Except where prohibited by applicable law, Hypemarket reserves the right to change these Terms of Use at any time without notice. Your continued access to or use of the Platform after any changes to these Terms of Use indicates your acceptance of such changes. It is your responsibility to review these Terms of Use regularly.

Hypemarket reserves the right to change any information, material or content (including, but not limited to, price, features, availability of Campaign Initiators, Campaign Initiator Profiles, types of Campaigns, and reviews of Campaigns and Campaign Initiators) contained on or provided through the Platform (the "Content") at any time, and from time to time, without notice.

Use of the Platform

As a condition of your use of the Platform, you warrant that: (a) you have reached the age of majority in your jurisdiction of residence; (b) you possess the legal authority to create a binding legal obligation; (c) you shall use the Platform in accordance with these Terms of Use; and (d) all information supplied by you on the Platform is true, accurate, current and complete.

Hypemarket retains the right, at its sole discretion, to deny access to anyone to the Platform or the services it offers, at any time and for any reason, including, but not limited to, for violation of these Terms of Use. You shall cease and desist from any such access or use immediately upon request by Hypemarket.

License Grants

Subject to these Terms of Use, Hypemarket grants you a personal, revocable, non-exclusive and non-transferable license during the Term to permit you to access and use the Platform in accordance with these Terms of Use.

Subject to these Terms of Use, you grant to Hypemarket a perpetual, transferrable, irrevocable, royalty-free, fully paid-up, worldwide and fully sublicensable license to access, collect, store and use any data, information, records and files that (1) you load, transmit to or enter into the Platform, or (2) we collect from your local computer system or from third-parties with your permission, and (in each case) including all results from processing such data, including compilations, and derivative works thereof solely for the purpose of: (A) providing the Platform Services, (B) complying with applicable law, and (C) Hypemarket’s reasonable audit and data retention policies.

User Account

You will be required to successfully sign up for a user account (the “User Account”) using the available interfaces at the Platform and be issued with a username and password login credentials by Hypemarket (“User ID”) in order to use the Platform and communicate with Campaign Initiators through the Platform. If you are issued with a User ID, you shall keep your User ID secure and shall not share your User ID with anyone else, and you shall not collect or harvest any personal data of any other user of Hypemarket, including account names. Hypemarket reserves the right to disable any User Account issued to you at any time in Hypemarket’s sole discretion. If Hypemarket disables access to a User Account issued to you, you may be prevented from accessing Hypemarket, your account details or any Campaigns that are associated with your account.

Term and Termination

These Terms of Use shall commence on the day you first use the Platform and will continue into force until terminated by either party (the “Term”). Either party may terminate these Terms of Use as follows: (1) Hypemarket may terminate these Terms of Use at any time and with immediate effect by giving notice to you, at Hypemarket’s discretion, by email (at your current email address on file with Hypemarket) or through the Platform; (2) you may terminate these Terms of Use at any time and with immediate effect by requesting (by email or through any then-available interfaces on the Platform) that your User Account be deleted, ceasing use of the Platform and uninstalling and removing all local software components thereof.

Campaign Agreements with Campaign Initiators

The Platform permits you to view the Campaign Initiator Profiles of Campaign Initiators who have registered on our Platform and have chosen to allow you to view their Campaign Initiator Profiles. If a Campaign Initiator selects you for a Campaign through the Platform, you may separately enter into an agreement with that Campaign Initiator on such terms and conditions as may be agreed to between you and that Campaign Initiator (“Campaign Agreement”). For example, the Campaign Agreement may contain (a) a description of the services you will provide to the Campaign Initiator, (b) payment terms, and (c) any other terms and conditions as communicated between you and the Campaign Initiator through this Platform or otherwise. You understand that you are performing services for the Campaign Initiator, and not Hypemarket, and that Hypemarket is not a party to and will be in no way responsible for the performance of either you or the Campaign Initiator under any Campaign Agreement, except for facilitating the transmission of payment from the Campaign Initiator to you on their instructions in accordance with these Terms of Use. Hypemarket does not make any representations or warranties of any kind in respect of a Campaign Initiator or a Campaign Agreement. You also agree to act in good faith when negotiating and performing your obligations under each Campaign Agreement. Hypemarket does not provide any guarantees or insurance on the shipment of merchandise to influencers from Campaign Initiators. Campaign Initiators ship merchandise at their own risk.

If you enter into a Campaign Agreement other than through the use of the Platform, you will notify Hypemarket within seven (7) days of the date of such Campaign Agreement.

Facilitated Payments Withholding Consent

If Hypemarket facilitates the transmission of any payments from the Campaign Initiator to you in connection with a Campaign Agreement (each, a “Facilitated Payment”), Hypemarket may in its sole discretion withhold from any such Facilitated Payment any amounts that are payable to Hypemarket by the applicable Campaign Initiator in connection with that Campaign Agreement. Hypemarket is not your trustee or fiduciary in respect of any Facilitated Payments or any Campaign Agreements. Hypemarket reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to place a hold on a Facilitated Payment, if Hypemarket determines that the funds may be subject to a breach of applicable law (e.g. fraud or money laundering), or if Hypemarket is required to cooperate with law enforcement. Furthermore, Hypemarket may hold funds from an Instagrammer, if that Instagrammer has used automated programs to gain more 'likes', 'follows', or 'comments' on their page, or any other stat applicable to their Instagram account. Hypemarket may in its sole discretion withhold any such Facilitated Payment, for reasons they deem necessary to protect companies using the site.

Payments Non-refundable

All payments or commissions received by Hypemarket from a Campaign Initiator or Instagrammer are 100% non-refundable upon receipt by Hypemarket. Hypemarket shall have the sole and absolute discretion to refund all or a portion of any commission or payment received.

Six Month Exclusivity

For a period of six (6) months commencing on the later of: (i) the date when you last communicated with a Campaign Initiator in respect of a Campaign, whether through the Platform or otherwise, and (ii) the execution date of a Campaign Agreement entered into with a Campaign Initiator (the “Commencement Date”), neither you nor your agents or affiliates will enter into an agreement directly or indirectly with such Campaign Initiator for the creation of any promotional media content, subject to the following exemptions:

The agreement you are entering into with the Campaign Initiator is a Campaign Agreement, in respect of which Hypemarket will receive a fee as provided for thereunder; or

You were engaged in good-faith negotiations with the Campaign Initiator for the creation of that promotional media content on or before the Commencement Date; or

You are renewing a pre-existing agreement with the Campaign Initiator that expired after the Commencement Date.

Reviews and Comments

By submitting content to the Platform or Hypemarket, including any Campaign Initiator or Campaign reviews, questions, comments, suggestions, ideas or similar information (collectively, “Submissions”), you grant Hypemarket and its affiliates, a worldwide, nonexclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, transferable, irrevocable and fully sublicensable right to (a) use, reproduce, modify, adapt, translate, distribute, publish, create derivative works from and publicly display and perform such Submissions throughout the world in any media, now known or hereafter devised; and (b) use the name that you submit in connection with such Submission. You acknowledge that Hypemarket may choose to provide attribution of your Submissions (for example, listing your name and city on a Campaign Initiator or Campaign review that you submit) at our discretion, and that such submissions may be shared with Campaign Initiators and others using our Platform. You further grant Hypemarket the right to pursue at law any person or entity that violates your or Hypemarket’s rights in the Submissions by a breach of these Terms of Use. You acknowledge and agree that Submissions are non-confidential and non-proprietary.

Hypemarket takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any Submissions posted or submitted by you. Hypemarket has no obligation to post your Submissions and reserves the right, in its absolute discretion to determine which Submissions are published on the Platform. If you do not agree to these terms, please do not provide us with any Submissions.

You are fully responsible for the content of your Submissions, specifically including, but not limited to, reviews posted to the Platform. You shall not post or transmit to or from the Platform: (i) any unlawful, threatening, libelous, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, or other material or content that would violate rights of publicity and/or privacy, or that would violate any law; (ii) any commercial material or content (including, but not limited to, solicitation of funds, advertising, or marketing of any good or services); and (iii) any material or content that infringes, misappropriates or violates any copyright, trademark, patent right or other proprietary right of any third party. You shall be solely liable for any damages resulting from any violation of the foregoing restrictions, or any other harm resulting from your posting of content to the Platform. You acknowledge that Hypemarket may exercise its rights (e.g. use, publish, delete) to use any Submissions without any notice to you.
