Terms of Use

Here at Musetown we believe that all Creator posts should be transparent and put consumers first. Therefore, both Creators and brands need to ensure that no campaign or post is false or misleading and must disclose the fact that the Creator is being paid by the brand. Musetown expects that all users comply with all applicable Laws and industry self-regulation relating to influencer marketing, including the AANA Guidelines (AU), CAP Code (UK), and Federal Trade Commission’s Guides Concerning Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising (USA) (“FTC Guides”). This means that all influencer marketing posts which are being facilitated through Musetown should be transparent and labeled with appropriate disclosures, such as #ad.  We expect Creators and brands to keep themselves up to speed with the latest best practice on how to label influencer marketing posts in a transparent way in order to make sure that consumers are clear about the commercial nature of the sponsored Posts and/or Ads.

In relation to Influencer Marketing Campaigns upon a creator publishing an approved Post, you authorise us to debit the Brand Fee that is payable for the Post from your nominated card or account (as applicable) in order to pay the charges. You must pay all charges in full strictly within 7 days or as otherwise advised by us in writing from time to time. If no timeframe for payment is stated, the payment must be received by us no later than 7 days from the date of the corresponding tax invoice for those Posts.

If you fail to pay any charges or we are unable to successfully process your payment of any charges within the timeframe required (as applicable), we reserve the right to charge a late payment fee calculated at a rate of ten percent (10%) per annum but no less than $10.00 per month. This amount represents a genuine and reasonable estimate of such costs and expenses associated with managing and processing late payments. We also reserve the right to withdraw credit facilities (where applicable) at any time or to remove your access to the Musetown Platform. You may also be liable to pay interest on the date the payment becomes due and you may also be responsible for all reasonable expenses incurred by us as a result of such late payment (including but not limited to costs incurred by us to recover any unpaid amounts). Without limiting our rights, in the event you fail to pay any charges within the timeframe and in the manner required, we reserve the right to suspend or terminate your access to the Musetown Platform or to suspend or terminate any current Campaigns.
