Please read these AToS, the Terms, and our Privacy Policy carefully. Our Privacy Policy is at https://grin.co/privacy/.

We will also update the “Last Updated Date” at the top of these AToS. Modifications to these AToS will automatically take effect upon posting; provided, however, that material changes to the AToS will be effective as to an existing User thirty (30) days after posting. By continuing to access or use the Site or any Services available to Creators after we have posted a modification, you are indicating that you agree to be bound by the modified AToS. If the modified AToS are not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to cease accessing or using the Site and Services as a Creator.

3. Eligibility
The eligibility provisions in the Terms apply.

4. Registration
The Service allows registered Creators to access certain information, create a Creator Profile, and provides them opportunities to express interest in participating in marketing campaigns proposed by other Users.

To access and use the Services as a Creator, you must register an account as a Creator (“Creator Account”). GRIN offers three ways to create an account – direct registration using an email address, registration via a third party service or the creation of a Creator Profile within the GRIN for Creators feature of the Services.

Direct Registration and Creator Profile Registration: To create a Creator Account by using your email address, follow the prompts on the Site. You agree to provide accurate, current and complete information during registration and to update such information to keep it accurate, current and complete. You agree that you will safeguard your password and that you are solely responsible for any activities or actions under your Creator Account, whether or not you have authorized such activities or actions. You will immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your Creator Account. You are solely responsible for your Content (defined below) and Creator Account.

Registration via Third Party Service: You may also create a Creator Account via certain third party social networking services or sites (including, but not limited to, Facebook) (each such account, a “Third Party Account” or “TPA”)) by following the prompts on the Site. You represent that you are entitled to disclose your TPA login information to us and to grant us access to your TPA (including, but not limited to, for use for the purposes described herein), without breach by you of any of the terms and conditions that govern your use of the applicable TPA and without obligating us to pay any fees or making us subject to any usage limitations imposed by such third party service providers.

Linking Third Party Accounts After Registration: Whichever way you first create a Creator Account, you may also thereafter link it to your TPAs, by either: (i) providing your TPA login information through the Services; or (ii) expressly authorizing us to access your TPA, as is permitted under the applicable terms and conditions of each Third Party Account. You represent that you are entitled to disclose your TPA login information to us and/or grant us access to your TPA (including, but not limited to, for use for the purposes described herein), without breach by you of any of the terms and conditions that govern your use of the applicable TPA and without obligating us to pay any fees or making us subject to any usage limitations imposed by such third party service providers.

You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for your Creator Account and all Creator Account information. You represent and warrant that any Creator Account Content that you post, and any agreements you enter into with other Users (i) will not breach any agreements you have entered into with any third parties and (ii) will (a) comply with all applicable laws, tax requirements, licenses, rules and regulations that may apply to you and (b) not conflict with the rights of third parties.

5. Service Process; Fees; Payment
Registered Creators may use the Services to search for marketing campaign opportunities and offer and accept opportunities to which they are invited. Users posting marketing campaigns control which Creators are allowed to see and/or accept a proposal to participate in the marketing campaign.

Creators retained to participate in a marketing campaign may be compensated in a number of ways: by monetary payment; through receipt of goods or services; or a combination of both. Some marketing campaigns will ask Creators to register as affiliate marketers and will provide compensation based on actions taken by end users (such as shares, re-posts, or purchases of goods or services directly connected to a Creator’s Social Media Account posts). The compensation for each marketing campaign will be communicated in the marketing campaign description.

When two Users enter into an agreement with each other through the Services, we will share information with each User as necessary or requested, such as (i) the first and last name, Social Media Account handles, and contact information, (ii) links to the other User’s profile or other information expressly made available by that User, and (iii) details of the Users and campaign (including campaign requirements). Users may enter into agreements with each other through the Services by following the prompts to establish all agreed terms and mutual acceptance of those terms.

When an agreement between Users is confirmed through the Services, we will communicate with each User confirming such agreement and facilitating other requested communications. The message may be sent by in-application push message, posting to your account or dashboard, email, and/or text message, and acceptance of these terms is your consent to receive these communications.

In consideration of the Services, we receive a fee (the “Service Fee”) from Users posting marketing campaigns in exchange for providing the Services. We do not currently charge Creators any service fee for use of the Service. Creators may receive payment through the Services or by other means as agreed upon directly between the Creator and the User.

6. Account Profiles
The Services includes creation of a profile for Users that may become Creators, based on that Creator’s publicly available social network posts, followers and activity. Other Users will be able to see your Profile and Users seeking to connect with Creators will be able to search your profile and will use the information to invite you to make a proposal on offered work or otherwise communicate with you. You understand and agree that the placement or ranking of your Profile in search results may depend on a variety of factors, including, but not limited to, User or Creator Preferences, ratings and/or offered rates.

7. Use of Your Content; Responsibility for Your Content

(a) that you have the right, power, and authority to post that Content and grant the licenses specified below;

For clarity, Content does not include the GRIN Services or the Site, As between GRIN and you, GRIN or its third party licensors exclusively own all right, title and interest in and to the GRIN Services and the Site.
