Brkaway Brand Terms of Service

Terms of Service – Brand

These Terms of Service (the “Agreement”) between you (the “Subscriber”, “your”, “you”, etc.) and Brkaway Media Inc. (the “Company”, “our”, “we”, etc.) govern all aspects of your relationship with the Company and the Company’s independent content creators (each, a “Content Creator”). The Company and the Subscriber shall be collectively referred to as the “Parties”.

By signing up as a Subscriber, you are agreeing to be bound by this Agreement and are representing that you have read, understood, and consented to the terms herein. You may not sign up as a Subscriber if you do not agree to the terms of this Agreement. The Company reserves the right to decline to allow you to participate as a Subscriber at any time in its sole discretion if it has cause to believe that your participation would violate this Agreement.

1. Services: The Company operates an online portal (the “Portal”) to facilitate the Subscriber’s connection to Content Creators. The Company connects the Subscriber to Content Creators who will create for and provide to the Subscriber video and other content (the “Deliverable(s)”) to be used by the Subscriber for marketing and on certain social media and other websites (the “Services”). On subscribing to the Services, the Subscriber will select a plan to receive a certain number of Deliverables every 30 days (each such 30 days, a “Period”). The Deliverables shall be created each Period by the applicable Content Creator(s). On the Portal, the Subscriber will have the opportunity to describe specific Deliverables, provide feedback, and approve concepts and Deliverables.

2. Term: This Agreement shall commence on your registration as a Subscriber and shall continue on an ongoing basis until terminated by the Parties in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement.

3. Selection of Content Creator: Upon your registration as a Subscriber, you will select one or more Content Creators from the Company’s then-current list of available Content Creators (the “Active Creators”). The Active Creators will remain the Subscriber’s designated, non-exclusive Content Creators unless changed in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. The Subscriber may select new Active Creators in the following circumstances:

a. Every Period during the Term of this Agreement, on fourteen (14) days’ prior written notice; and
b. Where an Active Creator is no longer registered as a Content Creator with the Company.

4. Collaboration with Content Creators: The Subscriber agrees to collaborate with their Active Creator(s) on the creation of Deliverables to the extent necessary to effectuate the terms herein. Subscriber agrees to appoint a representative to collaborate with the Active Creator(s) and further agrees to make said representative reasonably available for consultation in order to ensure the smooth creation of the Deliverable(s) in accordance with the terms herein. Feedback must be provided by the Subscriber within a reasonable time prior to the intended publication of the relevant Deliverable. Subscriber agrees that it shall be fully responsible for any failure on its part to collaborate with the Active Creator(s) and shall not dispute the outcome of the Deliverable(s) where it has not made itself reasonably available for collaboration with the Active Creator(s).

5. Delivery: Each Deliverable shall be considered “delivered” when the Subscriber indicates it as approved for final use in the Portal. However, regardless of whether the Subscriber has approved a specific Deliverable for final use on the Portal, a Deliverable will be deemed final for the purposes of this Agreement if: (i) the Content Creator submits the Deliverable for approval on the Portal after incorporating two (2) rounds of feedback from the Subscriber after first submission of the Deliverable in video format; or (ii) the Content Creator submits the Deliverable (in any format) for approval on the Portal and does not receive further feedback from the Subscriber for [5] business days.

6. Payment: For the Services rendered, the Subscriber agrees to pay to the Company each Period the fees indicated by the Company on subscription for the applicable subscription tier plus applicable taxes (the “Subscription Fees”). The Subscription Fees are due and payable on the first day of each Period in the subscription Term.

7. Relationship of Parties: The Parties understand and affirm that the Company is an independent contractor of the Subscriber, and nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as creating any other legal relationship between the Parties, whether agency, joint venture (or other form of joint enterprise), partnership, franchise, business opportunity, employment, fiduciary or otherwise. Neither Party has the power or authority (and shall not hold itself out as having such power or authority) to act in the name of or bind the other Party and shall not make any representations on the other Party’s behalf without the other Party’s prior written consent.

8. No Guarantee: Unless otherwise stated herein, the Company expressly does not guarantee any specific performance target of the Deliverable(s) including but not limited to engagement targets, impression targets, viewer counts, Subscriber business objectives, Subscriber marketing objectives, or other such metrics, targets or objectives. Subscriber further understands that Company makes no guarantee of the actual real follower count or performance of any Content Creators used in the Deliverable(s).

9. Intellectual Property: The Subscriber hereby grants to the Company a world-wide, limited, royalty-free right and license to use (and to sublicense to its contractors and the Content Creator(s) utilized to fulfill this Agreement the right to use) the Subscriber’s brand, logos, copyrighted material, promotional materials, name, and other such property provided by the Subscriber to the extent reasonably necessary to fulfill the Agreement and deliver the Deliverables.

Other than the intellectual property licensed to the Company from the Subscriber in the foregoing paragraph, the Company shall be the owner of all intellectual property, including but not limited to copyright, in the Deliverable(s) produced pursuant to this Agreement. Subject to the Company receiving full payment for the Services, and provided the Subscriber does not edit, modify, adapt or amend any Deliverables after they are approved for final use pursuant to Section 5, the Company grants to the Subscriber a world-wide, limited, exclusive, royalty-free right and license to use the Deliverable(s) in accordance with the terms and purpose of this Agreement.

For the avoidance of doubt, the Company shall not be liable under or in connection with this Agreement for any edits, modifications, adaptations or amendments to any Deliverables made by Subscriber or by a third party on Subscriber’s behalf, nor in the event that any fault, error, destruction or other degradation in the quality and/or quantity of the Deliverable(s) arises due to the acts or omissions of the Subscriber.

10. Termination: Once the Subscriber has been subscribed for at least ninety (90) consecutive calendar days, this Agreement may be terminated by either Party for any or no reason on at least thirty (30) days’ prior written notice. Either party may terminate this Agreement immediately on written notice for a material breach of this Agreement, including in the case of the Company only the non-payment of Subscription Fees, provided that the breaching party fails to cure such material breach to the non-breaching party’s reasonable satisfaction within fifteen (15) days after receipt of written notice from the non-breaching party describing in reasonable detail the nature and details of such material breach. Payment of the Subscription Fees for the Period in which the termination occurs will not be pro-rated or refunded.

16. Force Majeure: Neither Party shall be liable or responsible to the other Party, nor be deemed to have defaulted under or breached this Agreement, for any failure or delay in fulfilling or performing any term of this Agreement, when and to the extent the delay or failure is caused by or results from any act or event beyond the impacted Party’s reasonable control (which events may include natural disasters, pandemics, embargoes, explosions, riots, wars or acts of invasion or terrorism, requirements of law, or national or regional emergency) (each, a “Force Majeure Event”), provided that no Force Majeure Event shall relieve Subscriber of its payment obligations hereunder. The Party whose performance is affected by a Force Majeure Event shall promptly provide a written notice to the other Party, giving details of the Force Majeure Event, its likely duration and the extent to which its obligations are likely to be prevented or delayed.
