Hypetap Service

Hypetap.com is a platform for Organisations and Content Creators. Some of the main features include the ability for Organisations and Content Creators to find each other, create Campaigns, negotiate, manage Collaborations and track results. To perform these steps, our service provides various tools to help users make decisions and easily complete a Collaboration. For more information about Hypetap.com, please explore our public facing website pages (www.hypetap.com/discover).

Hypetap will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this Section.

Identity: Because user identification on the Internet is difficult, we cannot and do not confirm each User’s purported identity. Instead, we examine the social media accounts and respective websites of each User before they are accepted as a Content Creator / Organisation in the platform.  We do not guarantee that a User will actually complete the professional services or act lawfully in using the Site. However, we do provide a Dispute service on the Platform if any issues arise.

Legal relationship between you and Hypetap

Relationship between Users: The parties to a Collaboration are the Organisation, the Content Creator(s) and Hypetap.com.

Hypetap’s role: Hypetap.com provides a virtual environment for Organisations and Content Creators to work together. We may provide recommendations, however each user is responsible for identifying and subsequently making their own sole decision and/or determination on the suitability or otherwise (as applicable) of a Content Creator or Organisation to engage in a Collaboration with. Hypetap does our own investigation of a Content Creator and Organisation, but it is the sole responsibility to assess the ability and suitability of a Content Creator or Organisation before engaging in a Collaboration.

Entering into a Collaboration: Upon the Content Creator and Organisation successfully entering a collaboration, both parties agree to deliver their side of the agreement in accordance with the following agreements:

  • the Terms of Service
  • the collaboration terms as awarded and accepted on the Site, to the extent not inconsistent with the Terms of Service.

User Responsibilities: When you enter into a Collaboration, you create a legally binding contract with another User, unless the transaction is prohibited by law or by this Terms of Service. You are responsible for ensuring that you comply with your obligations to other Users. If you do not, you may become liable to that User(s). You must ensure that you are aware of any domestic laws (including common law), international laws, statutes, ordinances and regulations relevant to you as a Content Creator or Organisation, or in any other uses you make of the Site.

Liability: Depending on their jurisdiction, Organisations and Content Creators may have rights under statutory warranties that cannot lawfully be excluded. Nothing in this agreement is intended to override a right that by applicable law may not be excluded. However, to the maximum extent permitted by law, the liability of Hypetap.com for any services it provides is limited to performing the services again.

Termination: Hypetap reserves the right to terminate the participation of any User without reason but expressly including any User that Hypetap judges to be in violation of the Terms of Service or Privacy Policy. Hypetap may terminate the participation of a User if we think that they are creating problems, legal liabilities (actual or potential), infringing someone else’s intellectual property rights, engaging in fraudulent, immoral or illegal activities, or for other similar reasons. Hypetap reserves the right to terminate accounts that are inactive for an extended period of time.

No Insurance: Hypetap.com does not offer any form of insurance protection which will assist you, because our Site merely provides the online venue for Users to offer and arrange collaborations. However, some forms of payment permitted on the Site, such as PayPal, may offer limited protection or chargeback services. To find out more about these, the User should familiarise themselves with this information outside Hypetap.com.

b)     If an Organisation intends on setting up a Custom Account, an email will be sent to the primary registered email of the Account disclosing what the restrictions are of the Account. The pricing page will not be viewable prior to setup, and instead, the email sent to the primary registered email will disclose what the Fees will be of the Account.

In the absence of any such Notification, the user’s subscription shall be automatically renewed for a period of the same time length, as the shorter period referred to above and agreed between Hypetap and the user.

It is the user’s sole responsibility to notify Hypetap of any changes to their Subscription, including providing the required notice for cancellation.

Payments to Content Creators (applies to Non-Legacy Campaigns only)

We do not operate an escrow service. We do however, provide a service which allows controlled payments to be made with respect to the Collaboration – Details below.

Payment to Content Creators: As an Organisation, you understand that entering into a Collaboration with a Content Creator may require payment as per the negotiation between you and that Content Creator. All monetary payments to Content Creators must be performed using our Services. When negotiation is complete, the Organisation will deposit funds with Hypetap, who will then release them to the Content Creator when (a) the Content Creator has completed their obligations as per the collaboration set by the Organisation (and no dispute has been raised) (b) when a dispute is resolved where the outcome requires the Organisation to make a payment to the Content Creator.

Non-payment: Once the Content Creator has performed their side of the services required as per the Collaboration, the Organisation is required to approve the posts within seven days. If the Organisation does not approve the Content Creators services, the funds will be automatically released by Hypetap to the Content Creator.

Payments to Content Creators (applies to Legacy Campaigns only)

Payment to Content Creators: As an Organisation, you understand that entering into a Collaboration with a Content Creator may require payment as per the negotiation between you and that Content Creator. All monetary payments to Content Creators must be performed using our Services which will require a PayPal transaction. Content Creators will not be able to enter into a Collaboration that requires a monetary payment if they have not entered in their PayPal ID (as required in the negotiation in the platform). The Organisation payment will be made when: (a) the Content Creator has completed their obligations as per the collaboration set by the Organisation (and no dispute has been raised) (b) when a dispute is resolved where the outcome requires the Organisation to make a payment to the Content Creator. This payment is made directly to the Content Creator via their connected PayPal account – It does not get paid to us. Payments to Content Creators cannot be made to us with the intention of being redirected to relevant party – It is a direct payment from the Organisation to the Content Creator only.

Non-payment: Once the Content Creator has performed their side of the services required as per the Collaboration, if payment is involved, the Organisation is required to make payment within seven days from the time you have approved their services. If you do not approve their services, it will be automatically approved after a seven day period. From the date of approval, you will have seven days to make payment. If payment is not processed within this time frame, the Organisation will incur a daily charge of $2.50 payable to Hypetap and $2.50 payable to the Content Creator. We will send you reminder via our in system notifications and emails regarding your payment obligations to reduce the likelihood of this occurring.

Fees to Hypetap for Content Creators

Content Creators currently set up and use their Account without any Fee payable to Hypetap. Content Creators are charged a transaction fee for Collaborations with Organisations that require a monetary payment (this does not apply to Legacy Campaigns). An outline of Fees charged can be found on the Content Creator section of the Site.

Currency

All amounts, fees, payments and charges are stated and will be assessed in Australian dollars (AUD). Your Account and all transactions are made and displayed in AUD unless otherwise specified.
