Loom Terms & Policies
Creator Program Terms & Conditions
Effective: October 19, 2021
Any person or entity (“you”) that participates or attempts to participate in Loom’s Creator Program must accept these Creator Program Terms & Conditions (“Agreement”). By registering for the Loom Creator Program, you agree to comply with the terms of this Agreement between you and Loom, Inc. (“Loom,” “we,” “us,” “our”) including any other Creator Program requirements or policies that we make available to you (“Program Policies”), which are incorporated by reference. If you sign up for the Creator Program on behalf of an entity or organization, you are binding that organization to this Agreement, and you represent that you have the authority to do so.
1. Creator Program
1.1 Getting Started. The Loom Creator Program is managed through Partnerstack, where you must apply to join our program through the Partnerstack application page on its website. Once you’ve signed up for the Creator Program, you will have access to the Creator Program through Partnerstack’s website, located at partnerstack.com, where there will be resources and instructions for getting started.
1.2 Program Compliance Requirements. You must comply with this Agreement to participate in the Creator Program and receive any Fees. We may, but are not obligated to, monitor your website or marketing channels at any time to determine if you are complying with this Agreement, and our Program Policies, and we may notify you of any changes we feel you should make to remain in compliance.
1.3 Violations. If you violate this Agreement, our Program Policies, or any other terms and conditions applicable us, then, (a) in addition to any other rights or remedies available to us, we reserve the right to permanently (to the extent permitted by applicable law) cease payment of all Fees otherwise payable to you under this Agreement, whether or not directly related to such violation without notice and without prejudice to any right to recover damages in excess of this amount; and (b) we may immediately terminate your participation in the Creator Program.
1.4 Our Customers. For clarity, our customers are not, by virtue of your participation in the Creator Program, your customers. All our terms and policies, concerning customers will apply. You may not take any customer orders or provide customer service to any existing or potential customers on our behalf. You may not handle or address any contacts with any of our customers, and, if contacted by any of our customers for a matter relating to us, you will ask those customers to follow the directions on our website for assistance. You will not make any representations, warranties, commitments or promises to any customers regarding us or our Service (defined below).
2. Marketing Activities
2.1 Creator Link. As a Creator, you will be able to access a link to the Loom website that will be associated with you as a participant in the Creator Program (“Creator Link”). You are only allowed to link to those specific web pages that we designate in the Creator Link. When a customer clicks through your Creator Link to purchase a subscription to our video messaging service offered on our website (“Service”), you will be eligible to receive a Referral Fee.
2.2 Authorization. We authorize you to market and promote Loom and our Service to potential customers in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. You agree you will market the Service fairly and accurately, and will not make any representations or warranties concerning us or our Service, or use any marketing content or materials that: (i) are made or purported to be made on behalf of us if they weren’t; (ii) violate any laws or regulations; (iii) are false, misleading, or inconsistent with the Loom Content, or other materials published and supplied by us; or (iv) are offensive, obscene, inappropriate, or otherwise unsuitable for our Creator Program, in our sole discretion.
2.3 Content. We may make images, data, text, marketing materials, and other content available for use in your website and marketing materials (“Loom Content“). You may use the Loom Content in connection with marketing the Service and creating your own marketing content (“Creator Content”), subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If we update any Loom Content, you will use your best efforts to replace the existing version of the Loom Content with the updated version.
2.4 Publicity. We may use your name, likeness, and public marketing content regarding our Service solely to reference you as a participant in the Loom Creator Program on our website and in our social media and marketing channels. You may revoke this grant at any time by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your notice of revocation, and we will cease new uses of such references within 5 business days and will use commercially reasonable efforts to update our website and social media and marketing channels to remove any past references.
2.5 No Other Public Statements. Neither party will issue any press release or public statements disclosing the existence of this Agreement or the performance of Service without the other party’s prior written consent, except to the extent expressly stated in this Agreement.
3. Creator Disclosure
3.1 Compliance. You agree to comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations, applicable industry best practices and standards and regulatory guidelines relating to sponsored posts and advertising copy, including but not limited to the United States Federal Trade Commission’s then-current rules and regulations applicable to online advertising generally, advertising disclosures and social media advertising, sponsorships and endorsements. You will not misrepresent or embellish our relationship with you (including by expressing or implying that we support, sponsor, or endorse you), or express or imply any affiliation between us and you or any other person or entity except as expressly permitted by this Agreement.
3.2 Statement. You must clearly, proximately, and prominently state the following, or any substantially similar statement previously allowed under this Agreement, on your website or any other location where you market, promote, recommend, or endorse us or post your Creator Link: “As participant in the Loom Creator Program, I earn from qualifying purchases.”
4.1 Referral Fee. You will receive a percentage of the monthly recurring revenue actually received by us from a Qualified Purchase, less taxes, refunds, and credits, as described in our Program Policies (“Referral Fee”). A “Qualified Purchase” is the initial sale of a Loom subscription to a new Loom customer that purchases a subscription from the Loom webpage directed from your Creator Link within the time period described in our Program Policies. Referral Fees will exclude any revenue received from paid subscriptions from customers that we determine were sourced by our sales team. Final determination as to whether to accept an end-user as a customer is at our sole determination.
4.2 Influencer Fee. You will receive a flat fee for creating qualifying Creator Content and marketing Loom on social media and other public channels, as described in the Program Policies (“Influencer Fee”, and together with any Referral Fees, “Fees”).
4.3 Process. You will provide your banking information to Partnerstack so that we can make payments to you. You are solely responsible for ensuring that your banking information is accurate and current. You are responsible for any fees, such as wire transfer fees, charged by any intermediary banks involved in a funds transfer. We will not be responsible for any payments not received due to you failing to provide complete and accurate banking information. We will aggregate all Fees payable to you under this Agreement and will pay the aggregate Fees to you on a monthly basis through Partnerstack in accordance with the terms and policies at partnerstack.com/policies. We may change our Fees at any time, and any changes will apply on a going-forward basis after they have been posted in our Program Policies.
4.4 Taxes. You will be responsible for paying all sales, use, value added, excise, export or other tax, duty or other charges of any kind or nature that is levied or imposed by any governmental authority on payment of the Fees (“Taxes”), if any. If we are required to withhold any withholding or similar taxes, we will do so and will make these payments. Any withholding taxes paid by us to the tax authority will be deducted from the amount due to you, such that the amount paid to you will be net of the withholding taxes. Upon your request, we will provide you with a copy of the tax receipt or tax certificate for the withholding tax paid.
