1. CREATOR ACCOUNT; CREATOR DATA
Please be advised that agencies cannot be Creators. Every Creator is the owner of their own account and must have access to their account at all times. If you have an agent or agency which assists you with the operation of your Creator account (or operates it on your behalf), this does not affect your personal legal responsibility. Our relationship is with you, and not your agent or agency, and you will be legally responsible for ensuring that all Content posted and all use of your account complies with the Terms of Service.
You agree to notify Company of any breach of security by promptly sending Company an e-mail to [email protected].

Finally, each Creator acknowledges and agrees that when a Creator elects to delete their Creator Account, such Creator’s Account will be “blocked” by Company and no longer accessible or viewable by Users, and any Content that has previously been uploaded or otherwise made available to Users on the Platform by such Creator will be deleted and such Content will no longer be searchable or accessible via the Platform.
3. CREATOR MONETIZATION TERMS
As a Creator on the Platform, you may receive monetary contributions funded by end users (“Fan Payments”) in exchange for access to your subscription-based content (“Premium Content”). All Fan Payments will be received by a third-party payment provider approved by us. We will receive the Fan Payment in full from the relevant payment provider. We will deduct our fee of eighteen percent (18%) of all gross Fan Payments and the remaining eighty-two percent (82%), less credit card processing fees, of the Fan Payment is payable to you ("Creator Earnings"). Our fee includes our costs of providing, maintaining and operating the Platform and storing your Content. Our fee is deducted from the Fan Payment, and Creator Earnings are paid to you in the way described in the Payouts to Creators subsection below.
Payouts to Creators
Your Creator Account will be updated within a reasonable time with your Creator Earnings. Your Creator Earnings will become available for withdrawal by you from your Creator Account once such Creator Earnings appear in your Creator Account. To make a withdrawal of Creator Earnings from your Creator Account, you must have at least the minimum payout amount in your Creator Account.
All Fan Payments and Creator Earnings are transacted in USD only. Your bank may charge you currency conversion or transfer fees to receive the money. Additionally, your e-wallet company may charge you a fee for accessing the money. We do not have control over currency exchange rates or charges imposed by your bank or your e-wallet company, and we are not responsible for paying any charges imposed by your bank or your e-wallet company. If a User successfully seeks a refund or chargeback from their credit card provider in respect of a Fan Payment, we may investigate and may decide to deduct from your account an amount equal to the Creator Earnings earned by you on the charged-back or refunded amount.
