Termination

You’re free to stop using our Services at any time but must provide us notice so that we can remove your Content and inform the content marketplaces to remove your Content. Send notice to: support@wirestock.io.

We reserve the right to block, restrict, moderate, disable, suspend, or terminate your access to the Services at any time in Wirestock’s sole discretion, without prior notice or liability to you. Events that may cause suspension or termination including if (a) you’re in breach of these Terms; (b) your use of the Services would cause a real risk of harm or loss to us or other users; or (c) you have not accessed our Services for 12 consecutive months.

If you ask us to terminate your account, we will terminate your account no later than 120 days following our receipt of a written request from you. Wirestock needs this time to ensure that your Content is removed from all content marketplaces. To be clear, before the termination of your account is made effective by Wirestock, your Content may remain available for license to the content marketplaces’ customers.

By terminating your account with Wirestock, you understand that Wirestock will work with the content marketplaces to remove your Content from their respective platforms. You may thereafter be able to initiate a relationship directly with those content marketplaces.

Upon termination of your account, either by you or Wirestock, Wirestock shall have 90 days to remove all your Content hosted by content marketplaces so long as you have uploaded to Wirestock no more than 100 items of Content. For each additional 100 items of Content, Wirestock shall have an additional 30 days to remove all your Content. For example, if you have uploaded 350 items of Content to Wirestock, then Wirestock shall have 150 days to remove all your Content.

Once all your account is terminated, Wirestock will permanently delete your Content from its storage devices, servers, or cloud-based storage, if any.

Deletion of Your Content

During the course of our relationship, we may retain copies of your Content. However, Wirestock is not a content or data storage company, and is not responsible for storing a copy of your Content. You agree that you will not hold us liable if for any reason your Content is deleted by Wirestock. You also agree that only you are responsible for ensuring your Content is stored in a secure manner.

Compensation

When you sign up for our Services you give Wirestock certain rights, including, but not limited to, the right to distribute, upload, provide to, and license your Content to various content marketplaces of your choosing, and give the content marketplaces the right to license your Content to their customers. When a person downloads your Content from a content marketplace, the person downloading your Content from the Provider (the “Consumer”) pays an amount that is determined by the particular content marketplace. However, for each download of your Content for which Wirestock receives payment from a content marketplace (the “Royalty”), you agree that Wirestock will pay you 85% of the Royalty, but will keep 15% of the Royalty.

Royalty payments to you will be issued monthly for the previous month’s downloads. Payments are automatic and do not need to be requested as long as you have provided Wirestock with valid and current payment information. Currently, Wirestock only supports payments through Paypal, Payoneer, and Skrill. We may, however, later include additional payment processors.

There is a minimum payout rate per accounting period of either (i) thirty U.S. Dollars (USD 30.00); or (ii) a minimum payout amount selected by you, so long as the amount is not less than thirty U.S. Dollars (USD 30.00) (the “Payout Minimums”). If during an accounting period, you have not reached the Payout Minimums, your compensation will be rolled over into the next accounting period. If you cancel your account prior to accrued earnings in your royalty account reaching the applicable Payout Minimum, you thereby forfeit such royalties.

If your account is terminated for breach of the Terms, in addition to any other rights at law or in equity Wirestock may have, Wirestock shall have the right to retain any Royalties payable to you hereunder as liquidated damages.

If for whatever reason, a content marketplace issues a refund to a Consumer related to your Content, and as a result, the content marketplace deducts or penalizes (in any form) Wirestock, Wirestock may recoup Royalties previously paid to you by deducting from applicable Royalties credited to your account.

If Wirestock makes an overpayment of Royalties or other compensation to you for any reason, Wirestock has the right to deduct the amount of such overpayment from your accrued Royalties or to demand the immediate repayment of such overpaid Royalties or other compensation.

If you receive your payments through an online payment processing service (e.g., PayPal, etc.), you may not share your online payment processing service account with another Wirestock contributor. Moreover, you agree that Wirestock’s obligation to make payment to you hereunder shall be fulfilled by Wirestock making payment to the payment processing service designated by you.

Referral Program

If you refer other content contributors to Wirestock, you can participate in Wirestock’s referral program. To refer a person pursuant to Wirestock’s referral program, you must do so by sending them a link (the “Referral Link”) that you can find on the dashboard page of your account. Once the Referral Link is sent to the e-mail address of your referral, they will need to sign up by clicking on the Referral Link and providing the required information. Once your referral has successfully signed up with Wirestock, you will be paid three percent (3%) of the Royalties earned by and paid to your referral (the “Referral Payment”). Wirestock will pay you the Referral Payment for 2 years, after which we will no longer pay you the Referral Payment.

However, if you cancel your account, you thereby forfeit all Referral Payments and we will immediately stop paying Referral Payments. Additionally, if your account is terminated for breach of the Terms, in addition to any other rights at law or in equity Wirestock may have, Wirestock shall have the right to retain any Referral Payments payable to you hereunder as liquidated damages.

If for whatever reason Wirestock must recoup Royalties paid to your Referral (the “Recouped Royalty”), Wirestock reserves the right to recoup from you any Referral Payments previously made to you that is attributable to the Recouped Royalties.

Let’s Try to Sort Things Out First. We want to address your concerns without needing a formal legal case. Before filing a claim or demand against Wirestock, you agree to try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting support@wirestock.io. We’ll try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting you via e-mail. If a dispute is not resolved within 20 days of submission, you or Wirestock may bring a formal proceeding.

Judicial Forum for Disputes. You and Wirestock agree that any judicial proceeding to resolve claims relating to these Terms or the Services will be brought in the federal courts of Los Angeles, California, subject to the mandatory arbitration provisions below. Both you and Wirestock consent to venue and personal jurisdiction in such courts.

We Both Agree to Arbitrate. You and Wirestock agree to resolve any claims arising out of or relating to these Terms or the Services through final and binding arbitration by a single arbitrator. The American Arbitration Association (AAA) will administer the arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules in effect on the date of the commencement of arbitration. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof or having jurisdiction over the relevant party or its assets. The arbitration will be held in the United States county where you live or work, Los Angeles, California, or any other location we agree to. The language of the arbitration shall be English. The AAA rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees. However, each party shall bear its own costs and attorneys’ fees in the arbitration. Both parties agree that the following claims are exceptions to the agreement to arbitrate and will be brought in a judicial proceeding: (i) any claim related to actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights; and (ii) any claim seeking emergency injunctive relief based on exigent circumstances (e.g., imminent danger or commission of a crime, hacking, cyberattack).

This arbitration provision will survive termination of this Terms.

YOU AND WIRESTOCK AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. Unless both you and Wirestock agree, no arbitrator or judge may consolidate more than one person’s claims or otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. The arbitrator may award injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. You and Wirestock acknowledge and agree that we are each waiving the right to a trial by jury as to all arbitrable disputes under this Terms.
