Campaign Agreement

The Site permits you to view the Influencers Profiles who have registered on our Platform and have chosen to allow you to view their Influencer Profiles. If you select an Influencer for a Campaign through the Site, you shall inform STARGEMS of your selection. STARGEMS shall contact you for further arrangement for the signing of a Campaign Agreement on such terms and conditions as may be agreed by the parties (“Campaign Agreement”). For example, the Campaign Agreement may contain (a) a description of the services to be provided by the Influencer, (b) payment terms, and (c) any other terms and conditions as communicated between you and the Influencer through this Platform or otherwise.

Payment

You shall pay STARGEMS a fee in connection with each Campaign Agreement or, if no amounts are payable by you in connection with a Campaign Agreement, you shall pay STARGEMS an amount as determined by the then current fee schedule that can be found on our Website (the “Fee”). If you make any payments in connection with a Campaign Agreement other than through the Site or STARGEMS, you shall pay STARGEMS the Fee before each campaign is created. You will pay STARGEMS the Fee even if the Influencer fails to perform fully or partially under the Campaign Agreement.

STARGEMS may facilitate the transmission of payments from you to the Influencer in connection with a Campaign Agreement (“Facilitated Payment”). You hereby authorize STARGEMS to deduct the Fee from any such Facilitated Payment prior to transferring the remaining funds to the Influencer on your instructions. STARGEMS is not your trustee or fiduciary in respect of any Facilitated Payments or any Campaign Agreements. STARGEMS reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to place a hold on a Facilitated Payment, if STARGEMS determines that the funds may be subject to a breach of applicable law (e.g. fraud or money laundering), or if STARGEMS is required to cooperate with law enforcement.
