7. Modalities and Principle of Operation of the PLATFORM
7.1 Description of the steps involved in establishing a relationship ADVERTISERS who connect to the PLATFORM have access to a catalogue containing all the EDITORS and their visibility offers including SPONSORED CONTENT, according to the needs indicated by the ADVERTISER. ADVERTISERS can thus quickly and usefully access the EDITORS that are best suited to their online communication strategy. ADVERTISERS then select the EDITORS that interest them and whose SERVICES can enable them to strengthen their online presence and on social networks. The ADVERTISERS can send, through the GETFLUENCE.COM PLATFORM or its team, their instructions to the selected EDITORS and validate the different stages of each COLLABORATION. Just as the EDITORS can validate the steps requiring their actions.
7.3 Payment of services by ADVERTISERS ADVERTISERS may access each of the EDITORS’ offers but must pay in full for each order as soon as it is placed, so that it can be executed.
7.4 Adding EDITORS’ sites, entering GETFLUENCE prices and commissions EDITORS can freely add their sites from their account, indicating in particular the profit they wish to receive for each COLLABORATION. When the EDITORS enter their desired earnings, GETFLUENCE automatically shows the final price (excluding tax) to be paid by the ADVERTISER, including the EDITOR’s earnings and the additional commission received by GETFLUENCE. The amount of the commissions is always clearly visible and presented to the EDITOR.
7.5 Conditions for the receipt of earnings from EDITORS Each COLLABORATION between an ADVERTISER and an EDITOR entitles the EDITOR to the payment of the earnings due to the ADVERTISER, after a period of 30 days from the completion of the COLLABORATION for the benefit of the ADVERTISER. A service is still active if the published content related to the COLLABORATION is accessible on the EDITOR’s website under the conditions agreed with the ADVERTISER. In case of a failure to access or to respect the initial conditions of the COLLABORATION, an alert by e-mail is sent to the EDITOR at each control. At the end of 5 failed accesses (equivalent to 5 days) and in the event of non-reply of the EDITOR by the use of the contact information which he provided at the time of his inscription, the COLLABORATION can be cancelled and the ADVERTISER refunded on the deposit of money of his user account.
7.6 Conditions for withdrawal of earnings by EDITORS For each collaboration that ends after 30 days, the earnings associated with the collaboration are available in the EDITOR’s account and can be withdrawn for payment. The EDITOR may collect his earnings by requesting a bank transfer to his bank account from the PLATFORM, or by requesting a withdrawal by PayPal payment. Any transaction fees paid by GETFLUENCE in view of a bank transfer or PayPal payment may be re-invoiced to the EDITOR. Only EDITORS whose registered office is located in the European Union, with a bank account in the European Union (SEPA type), can benefit from the bank transfer. To obtain payment of his remuneration (earnings), the EDITOR must provide, when requesting payment from his account, a compliant invoice intended for GETFLUENCE to justify the payment. Each invoice must be sent in a digital format from the PLATFORM when requesting payment. Any invoice sent by post to GETFLUENCE will not be processed. Any invoice which does not comply with the law or which displays erroneous information concerning the EDITOR or GETFLUENCE, cannot be paid.
7.7 Invoicing to the ADVERTISER GETFLUENCE will directly issue the detailed invoice with the EDITOR’s price and GETFLUENCE’s commission to the advertisers.
