1. OVERVIEW OF SERVICE AND UPDATES

Overview. Sport Endorse is a platform for corporations, organisations and other sponsors (“Brands”) to communicate and transact with athletes, sports personalities, sports presenters, brand ambassadors and other influencers (“Talent”) seeking endorsement and commercial partnerships opportunities. Brands offer and negotiate sponsorship opportunities with Talent to create sponsorship/endorsement contracts (“Sponsorship Contracts”) and/or commercial partnerships.

Provision of Service. We may, without prior notice, change the Service; stop providing the Service or features of the Service; or create usage limits for the Service. If, for any reason, we believe that you have not complied with these Terms, we may, at our sole discretion and without liability, permanently terminate or temporarily suspend your access to the Service immediately and without prior notice. If you believe your account has been terminated or suspended in error, please contact your account manager or send us an email at platform.hello@sportendorse.com.

Updating the Terms. We may, in our sole discretion, modify or update these Terms from time to time. Your continued use of the Service after any such change constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms. If you do not agree to any of these Terms or any future Terms, then your only remedy is to discontinue your use of the Service.

2. USE OF THE SERVICE

Code of Conduct. In your use of the Service, you agree to act in a lawful and respectful manner toward us and toward all other Users. We reserve the right to remove or refuse to post any content that we, in our sole discretion, determine to be disrespectful, inappropriate or illegal.

Children under the age of 16. Persons under the age of 16 must not submit any personal information to us. Similarly, Brand or Talent must use their best endeavours to ensure that no personal information in respect of a person who is under the age of 16 years is submitted to us. We will not knowingly accept any data from a Brand or Talent in respect of a person who is under the age of 16 years.

Account Security. You are the sole authorised user of any account you create on the Service. As such, you are responsible for all activities that occur in relation to any account you create. You should take care to keep your password confidential. You must notify us immediately of any breach of security or unauthorised use of your account. Sport Endorse will not be liable for any losses caused by unauthorised use.

Sport Endorse has no responsibility for the content, materials, or information that you or other Users post, create or make available through the Service (collectively, “Content”). Any Content you create must be your own. By creating Content, you grant us a license to use your Content in our business activities.

Notices. By providing an email address, you consent to Sport Endorse using the email address to send you notices related to the Service and/or special offers. You may choose to opt out of messages (to the extent the messages are not required by law). Opting out may prevent you from receiving important notices regarding updates, improvements, or offers.

Prohibited Activities. You may not:

(i) use any robot, spider, scraper or other automated means to access the Service;
(ii) interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper operation, system integrity, or security of the Service;

3. SUBSCRIPTIONS

Brands and Talent are both eligible to register for free access to the Service by completing the sign-up process on our website or app. When completing the sign-up process, you will choose a subscription plan (the “Plan”). The Plan details all fees, charges and/or commission payable to us.

Agents. All communications are strictly between Brands and Talent. Agents are not permitted to register, control, operate or maintain an account but may access an account for administrative purposes with Talent consent.

4. DEALS AND DEAL PAYMENTS

Sponsorship Contracts. Sponsorship Contracts are created directly between the Talent and Brand according to the terms, rights, and benefits approved by both Talent and Brand. Sport Endorse has no responsibility with respect to the Sponsorship Contracts. Compliance with advertising/sporting regulations and all applicable law is the responsibility of the Talent and Brand.

Deal Payments. “Deal Payment” refers to the cash consideration owed by a Brand to the Talent per the terms of a Sponsorship Contract. Unless otherwise agreed in writing by all parties (including Sport Endorse), we will charge the Brand credit card on file for all Deal Payments and will hold Deal Payments in escrow pending completion of the relevant campaign.

Sport Endorse Commission. All cash payments between Brand and the Talent who have met through the Service (including but not limited to Deal Payments) are subject to the rate of commission detailed in their Plan, payable to Sport Endorse (a “Commission”) for one year after the last communication (e.g. application, invite, or message) between the parties via the Service. No commission will be collected on deals where payment is in the form of a product.

Payment to Talent. When a campaign is complete and the Talent has fulfilled his or her obligations under the Sponsorship Contract, we will release the Deal Payment to the Talent minus the Commission and Stripe processing / bank fees. Commission received will be split, using Stripe, between Sport Endorse, Brands and Talent in accordance with your Plan.

Cancelled Deals. If Talent cancels a deal or otherwise does not fulfil his or her obligations under a Sponsorship Contract, we will return the unearned portion of the Deal Payment to the Brand in the form of a credit or a refund. In addition, the Talent will be subject to the product return and deal cancellation policies to which the Talent expressly agreed when he or she signed the Sponsorship Contract; or, in the absence express agreement, will engage with the Brand in good faith with respect to returning product.
