Brkaway Content Creator Terms of Service

Terms of Service – Content Creators

These Terms of Service (the “Agreement”) between you (the “Content Creator”, “your”, “you”, etc.) and Brkaway Media Inc. (the “Company”, “our”, “we”, etc.) govern all aspects of your engagement by the Company as a Content Creator for the Company’s subscribers (each, a “Brand”). The Company and the Content Creator shall be collectively referred to as the “Parties”.

If you are an individual, to be eligible to register as a Content Creator, you must have reached the age of majority in your jurisdiction of residence. By registering as a Content Creator, 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 register as a Content Creator if you do not agree to the terms of this Agreement or do not meet the eligibility requirements. The Company reserves the right to decline to allow you to participate as a Content Creator at any time in its sole discretion if it has cause to believe that you do not meet the eligibility requirements or if your participation would violate this Agreement.

1. Services: The Content Creator shall create and deliver video and other content (the “Deliverable(s)”) to be used by the Company and the Brands for marketing and on certain social media and other websites (the “Services”). The Services shall be performed on a project basis for one or more Brands from time to time as offered by the Company on the Company’s online portal (the “Portal”). Upon being offered a project (each such project offering, an “Opportunity”), the Content Creator may review and accept or decline the Opportunity. An Opportunity will be further described in the Portal, including specific Deliverables, timelines and payment. Upon acceptance by the Content Creator, the Opportunity details shall become a part of this Agreement and will be incorporated herein by reference. If any term in an Opportunity conflicts or is inconsistent with the terms of this Agreement, the Opportunity will control.

The Content Creator agrees to follow all guidance and direction from the Company and Brand with regards to the Deliverable(s) and agrees that the Company shall have final authority and editorial control on all matters, including but not limited to creative matters, relating to the Content Creator’s Deliverable(s) under the Opportunity.

4. Delivery and Feedback: Each Deliverable in an Opportunity shall be considered “delivered” when it is indicated as approved for final use by the applicable Brand in the Portal. The Content Creator must incorporate all feedback provided by the Brand in the Portal prior to final submission. However, regardless of whether the Brand has approved a specific Deliverable for final use on the Portal, a Deliverable will be deemed final for the purposes of the Opportunity if: (i) the Content Creator submits the Deliverable for approval on the Portal after incorporating three (3) rounds of feedback from the Brand 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 Brand for five (5) business days.

5. Payment: Provided the Content Creator has successfully delivered all Deliverables for a given Opportunity in accordance with Section 4 above, the Company shall pay to the Content Creator the fees indicated in the applicable Opportunity, plus any applicable taxes (the “Project Fees”). Project Fees shall be due and payable within thirty (30) calendar days following the Company’s receipt of the Content Creator’s invoice for the applicable Opportunity.

6. Relationship of the Parties: The Parties understand and affirm that the Content Creator is an independent contractor of the Company, 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. The Content Creator shall have no power or authority (and shall not hold itself as having such power or authority) to act in the name of or bind the Company and shall not make any representations on the Company’s behalf without the Company’s prior written consent.
