The Plug App enables users to offer goods, services and other benefits to other users that may be redeemed in exchange for Plugcoins (such functionality being the “The Plug Marketplace”).
Where you use The Plug Marketplace to offer or redeem goods, services or other benefits in exchange for Plugcoins, any such transaction is entered into directly between you and the legal person making available the relevant goods, services or other benefits to you or redeeming such goods, services or other benefits from you, as applicable. Without limiting the effect of this Agreement in any way, transactions taking place on The Plug Marketplace are subject to the legal terms of the party offering the relevant goods, services or other benefits on The Plug Marketplace (including as stated in the actual listing), and we and our affiliates are not party to any such transactions save to the extent that we engage in transactions ourselves directly on The Plug Marketplace.
To the extent that The Plug agrees to administer on your behalf via The Plug’s own account any offer of goods or services or other benefits in exchange for Plugcoins on The Plug Marketplace, The Plug shall be entitled to retain up to 100% of the Plugcoins received for its own benefit in its absolute discretion.
You agree that The Plug has no responsibility for any goods, services or other benefits offered by you or by any third party on The Plug Marketplace. You agree that we have no control over and do not guarantee the quality, safety or legality of any goods, services or other benefits offered by users, the truth or accuracy of their offers, the ability of users to provide any goods, services or other benefits offered, or that a user will actually complete or perform a transaction. Save as otherwise expressly agreed with you, we and our affiliates do not act as agent, contractor, partner or any form of representative of you or any other user of The Plug Marketplace. Our operation of The Plug Marketplace should not be taken as an endorsement (express or implied) of any goods, services or other benefits offered on it, nor of any user.
The Plug is entitled to alter the selection of goods services and other benefits on offer, and the number of Plugcoins required to redeem any such goods, services or other benefits offered, on The Plug Marketplace, as well as to limit the number of possible redemptions of any good, service or other benefit by any user or group of users in its absolute discretion. Where we wish to do this, we will notify you first and give you the opportunity to de-list the relevant goods, services or other benefits, if you do not agree with the revised number of Plugcoins required.
You represent and warrant to us that any goods, services or other benefits that you offer on The Plug Marketplace will: (i) conform to the description you provide for them, (ii) comply with all applicable laws and regulations, (iii) be of satisfactory quality, (iv) conform to our acceptable use requirements (stated above in the section titled “Acceptable Use”), and (v) be delivered in full once a user redeems the relevant goods services or other benefits using the requisite number of Plugcoins in accordance with your stated terms and conditions.
You agree that we may remove any listing or offer on The Plug Marketplace at any time in our absolute discretion. All goods, services or other benefits listed on The Plug Marketplace are offered subject to their availability (which may be limited where stated on the listing) and the applicable terms and conditions of the user listing the relevant offer, and may be withdrawn at any time before they are duly redeemed. Particular goods, services or benefits may be offered via The Plug marketplace only to specific categories of user or to individually selected users, where we agree in writing or make available the necessary functionality to facilitate this.
You agree that disputes in relation to any goods, services or other benefit redeemed via The Plug Marketplace shall be resolved in accordance with the terms and conditions applicable to the relevant transaction between the parties to such transaction. While we may elect to help facilitate the resolution of such disputes through programs that we develop, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law we accept no liability in connection with any transaction that we have not directly participated in.
We welcome feedback on The Plug Marketplace participants. In the event that we determine in our absolute discretion that any fraud has occurred or any user has breached this Agreement or refused or failed to honor an offer of goods, services or any other benefit it has listed on The Plug marketplace that has been duly redeemed by another user using the requisite number of Plugcoins and in accordance with any applicable terms and conditions, we reserve the right in our absolute discretion to (i) reallocate Plugcoins between users to reimburse any aggrieved user where we deem this appropriate, and (ii) suspend or terminate the use of The Plug App by any user(s).
You agree that we and our affiliates have no responsibility to facilitate or offer returns, exchanges or refunds in connection with transactions on The Plug Marketplace that we have not participated in.
We make no representation, warranty or undertaking that the offer, sale, purchase, export, import or use of any goods, services or other benefits offered on The Plug marketplace is valid and legal under the laws that apply to you.

We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under this Agreement that is caused by any act or event beyond our reasonable control.

If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.

PLEASE READ THIS POLICY CAREFULLY AS IT ADDRESSES YOUR LEGAL RESPONSIBILITIES FOR STATEMENTS YOU MAKE IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR ACTIVITIES THROUGH THE PLUG.
This policy applies to any and all advertising activity undertaken by you through or in connection with The Plug, including any endorsements, testimonials, or statements you make on behalf of brands participating in the Service (“Brands”). Your failure to abide by this Influencer Disclosure Policy may result in your immediate suspension from the Plug. We reserve the right to update this Influencer Disclosure Policy at any time effective immediately upon posting to our website.
You agree as follows:
PLEASE NOTE: The Federal Trade Commission may provide additional or changed guidance from time to time, and the disclosure requirements identified in this Influencer Disclosure Policy may be updated accordingly. It is your responsibility to understand disclosure obligations at all times. For further questions, you should consult your own attorney and/or see the Federal Trade Commission's FAQs found at https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/guidance/ftcs-endorsement-guides-what-people-are-asking.
Without limiting any of the foregoing, you agree to comply with the following minimum requirements for disclosure:
Content of your disclosure:
Your disclosure should make it clear that the mention or review is connected to compensation from the Brand by using language such as “this video is brought to you by” or “this post is sponsored by”. Casual references to the Brand or simply saying “thanks to [the Brand]” are not clear enough to convey the paid relationship. Your presentation of the disclosure should be at the same speed and general phrasing as the rest of the content of the video (e.g. do not bury or quickly speed through the disclosure).
Other social media posts:
Any social media postings sharing the video must also contain a disclosure adequate under the FTC guidelines. Appropriate Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook disclosures may include #ad or #sponsored but you are responsible for ensuring any disclosure text and the appearance of that text complies with current FTC guidelines.
FAILURE TO PROVIDE APPROPRIATE DISCLOSURES MAY RESULT IN LIABILITY AND FTC ENFORCEMENT ACTIONS AGAINST YOU.
You agree to immediately correct any deficient disclosure in a Post upon notice you by either The Plug or the applicable Brand. If such modifications are not possible, you agree that you will immediately remove the entire Post containing the deficient disclosure.
Without limitation to any of your responsibilities in the Agreement, you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold The Plug and any applicable Brand harmless from any against any third party claims, actions, judgments, fines, or actions arising from or related to your failure to comply with this Influencer Disclosure Policy.
