To facilitate Influencers’ promotional efforts and to track the success of each Influencer, the Services generate a Web address for each Campaign (as defined below) that is unique to each Influencer (“Custom URL”). Influencers may post Custom URLs via External Sites and receive compensation based upon (i) an applicable cost-per-click rate multiplied by the total number of valid Custom URL clicks, (ii) an applicable cost-per-install of a mobile application of other software multiplied by the total number of valid installations or (iii) any other method for calculating compensation agreed to between an Influencer and Boostinsider.

YOU EXPRESSLY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT YOUR ACCESS TO AND USE OF THE SERVICES IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK. AS BETWEEN YOU AND BOOSTINSIDER, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” AND “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS AND BOOSTINSIDER EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS (EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ORAL OR WRITTEN), INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. WITHOUT LIMITING THE GENERALITY OF THE FOREGOING, BOOSTINSIDER DOES NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT: (A) THE FUNCTIONS CONTAINED IN THE SERVICES WILL BE ACCURATE OR MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS; (B) THE OPERATION OF THE SERVICES WILL BE SECURE, UNINTERRUPTED, ERROR-FREE OR VIRUS-FREE, OR (C) ANY DEFECTS IN THE SERVICES WILL BE CORRECTED.

THE LAWS OF SOME STATES OR JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE DISCLAIMER OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO SOME OR ALL OF THE DISCLAIMERS IN THIS SECTION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Boostinsider and its independent contractors and service providers, and each of their respective directors, officers, employees and agents (collectively, “Boostinsider Parties”) from and against all third party claims, damages, costs, liabilities and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees) caused by, arising out of or related to (a) your use of, or inability to use, the Services; (b) your violation of these Terms or any applicable law or any rights of any third party; or (c) any content (including Advertiser Content and Influencer Content) or Feedback you provide.

If you are a California resident, you waive any and all rights granted to you pursuant to California Civil Code § 1542, which states: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.”
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPH CAREFULLY BECAUSE IT REQUIRES YOU TO ARBITRATE DISPUTES WITH BOOSTINSIDER AND LIMITS THE MANNER IN WHICH YOU CAN SEEK RELIEF FROM BOOSTINSIDER.
You and Boostinsider agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising from or relating to these Terms (including the breach, termination, enforcement, arbitrability, interpretation, or validity hereof) or your use of the Services, shall be submitted to and determined exclusively by binding arbitration under the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C §§ 1 et seq. (“FAA”), except for claims for which arbitration is unavailable as a matter of law. Notwithstanding the above, you and Boostinsider are not required to arbitrate any dispute in which either party seeks equitable, injunctive and/or provisional relief pending the outcome of arbitration, including that for the alleged unlawful use of copyrights, trademarks, trade names, logos, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights. You and Boostinsider further agree that the arbitrability of any dispute between the parties, including whether or to what extent the arbitration agreement is unconscionable or otherwise unenforceable, is a decision that will be submitted exclusively to the arbitrator, and will not be decided by any federal or state court. ARBITRATION PREVENTS YOU FROM SUING IN COURT OR FROM HAVING A JURY TRIAL. By agreeing to binding arbitration as provided herein, each party waives his/her/its right to have any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or your use of the Services decided in court by a judge or jury. You and Boostinsider agree: (a) that any arbitration will occur in San Mateo County, California; and (b) that arbitration will be conducted confidentially by a single arbitrator in accordance with the provisions of JAMS’ Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures (the "JAMS Rules") as in effect at the time of submission. The JAMS Rules are available at https://www.jamsadr.com/rules-comprehensive-arbitration/.
All disputes, claims or controversies to be arbitrated in accordance with this Section shall be submitted in writing within the time period of limitations applicable to the claim(s) involved. The written submission shall state with specificity the issues to be submitted to arbitration and the relief sought. Copies of the submission and demand for arbitration shall be served by registered mail on the other party to the dispute and simultaneously upon the local office of JAMS. Copies to be served on Boostinsider must be addressed to: 1633 Bayshore Hwy, Burlingame, CA94010. The parties shall use one arbitrator for each case, who will be selected under the applicable rules of JAMS. The arbitrator will have the authority to consider and grant motions resolving all or part of any claim, using the standards under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure; this includes motions to dismiss if the claim is untimely under the applicable law and/or motions for summary judgment. The arbitrator will also have the authority to allow discovery in accordance with the applicable JAMS rules. The arbitrator will require the parties to identify their witnesses and exhibits in advance of any evidentiary hearing; will permit cross-examination of each witness presented; and will allow for post-hearing briefs if requested by either party. The arbitrator will have the authority to award relief on the same basis as in court: i.e., damages permitted by the applicable statutory or common law that is the subject of the claim, provided that the arbitrator's award of damages must be consistent with the terms of the "Limitation of Liability" section above as to the types and amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator will render an award in writing, setting forth the reasons supporting his/her decision. That decision will be final and binding, except for any appeal permitted by the FAA.
The costs and fees of JAMS and of the arbitrator shall be borne equally by the parties to the dispute, claim, or controversy.
You and Boostinsider also knowingly and voluntarily agree that there shall be no class actions, collective actions, representative actions or multiple-individual claims of any kind. YOU AND BOOSTINSIDER AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, COLLECTIVE OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW. To the extent a class, collective or representative claim may not be waived, you and Boostinsider agree to stay any such claims until after all claims subject to arbitration are fully resolved. Further, unless both you and Boostinsider agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative, collective or class proceeding.
Boostinsider is based in the United States and its Services are subject to U.S. law. Boostinsider makes no representations or warranties that the Services are appropriate or available for use in other locations.
The laws of the State of California, excluding its conflicts of law rules, govern your access to and use of the Services. To the extent the arbitration provision in Section 16 does not apply, you further agree that all disputes arising under these Terms will be resolved exclusively in the state courts in San Mateo County, California and the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, and you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of such courts for the purposes of litigating all such claims.
Boostinsider reserves the right to terminate your right to access and use the Services if you violate these Terms or any other terms or policies referenced herein, or if you otherwise create risk or possible legal exposure for us. You may terminate your Account with Boostinsider at any time by contacting Boostinsider at email@example.com. If you are an Advertiser, upon termination for whatever reason, any outstanding Fees in relation to your Campaign(s) will be immediately due and payable.
Your use of the Services, and any payments you make or receive via the Services, does not create any agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment relationship between you and Boostinsider.
If you are an Influencer, your relationship with Boostinsider is that of an independent contractor. You will not be entitled to any of the benefits that Boostinsider may make available to its employees, including, but not limited to, group health or life insurance, profitsharing or retirement benefits. You are not authorized to bind Boostinsider or make any representation, contract or commitment on behalf of Boostinsider unless specifically requested or authorized in writing to do so by Boostinsider. Boostinsider will not be responsible for withholding or paying any income, payroll, Social Security or other federal, state or local taxes, making any insurance contributions, including unemployment or disability, or obtaining worker's compensation insurance on your behalf. You are solely responsible for, and will file, on a timely basis, all tax returns and payments required to be filed with, or made to, any federal, state or local tax authority with respect to the performance of services and receipt of payments under these Terms. You are solely responsible for, and must maintain adequate records of, expenses incurred in the course of performing services under these Terms. Boostinsider will regularly report amounts paid to you by filing Form 1099MISC with the Internal Revenue Service as required by law. Any persons employed by you in connection with the performance of services under these Terms shall be your employees and you shall be fully responsible for them.
If you are an Influencer, you may be engaged or employed in any other business, trade, profession or other activity while providing services under These Terms, provided that you comply with all applicable provisions of these Terms.
If any provision of these Terms shall be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
You may not assign these Terms or any of the rights granted hereunder without the prior written consent of Boostinsider, and any attempted assignment without such consent shall be void. Subject to the foregoing restriction, these Terms will be fully binding upon, inure to the benefit of, and be enforceable by Boostinsider and its respective successors and assigns.
Any failure by Boostinsider to insist upon or enforce performance by you of any of the provisions of these Terms or to exercise any rights or remedies under these Terms or otherwise by law will not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of any right to assert or rely upon the provision, right or remedy in that or any other instance; rather, the provision, right or remedy will be and remain in full force and effect.
The termination of the Terms for any reason shall not affect a party’s rights or obligations that expressly or by their nature continue and survive (including, without limitation, the provisions concerning ownership, limitation on liability, indemnity and the warranty disclaimers).
