We will not be responsible to you if you suffer any loss or damage as a result of your accessing or viewing Content containing adult material in a way which places you in breach of any contract you have with a third party (for example, your employment contract) or in breach of any applicable law.

Subscriptions and purchases by Fans: This section describes the terms which apply to transactions and interactions between Fans and Creators:

All transactions and interactions facilitated by fangram are contracts between Fans and Creators on the terms of the Standard Contract between Fan and Creator. Although we facilitate transactions and interactions between Fans and Creators by providing the fangram platform, storing Content, and acting as a payment intermediary, we are not a party to the Standard Contract between Fan and Creator or any other contract which may exist between a Fan and Creator, and are not responsible for any transactions or interactions between Fans and Creators.

Creators are solely responsible for determining (within the parameters for pricing on fangram) the pricing applicable to transactions and interactions and the Content to which you may be given access. All prices appear in INR only.

Fan Payments are exclusive of GST, which shall be added at the current rate as applicable to Fan Payments.

To view a Creator's Content and/or utilise the fan interaction function on fangram, you must first add a payment card to your account and then click the 'Subscribe' button on the relevant Creator's profile.

You authorize us to supply your payment card details to a third-party payment provider for the purpose of processing your Fan Payment. All Fan Payments will be charged in INR. Your payment card provider may charge you currency conversion fees. We do not have control over currency exchange rates or charges imposed by your payment card provider or bank and we are not responsible for paying any charges or fees imposed by your payment card provider or bank.

If you choose to provide details of two or more payment cards, then if you try to make a Fan Payment from the first card and the card is rejected for any reason, then the other payment card will be used to collect the full Fan Payment.

The payment provider will take (i) monthly payments from your payment card for Fan Payments which are Subscriptions; and (ii) immediate payments from your payment card for ad hoc Fan Payments such as use of the fan interaction function on a Creator's account or paying a tip to the Creator. You authorize and consent to each of these payments being debited using your supplied payment card details.

Apart from free-trial Subscriptions, all Subscriptions to a Creator's profile will automatically renew at the end of the monthly subscription period, except if your payment card was declined, the subscription price has increased, or you have turned off the "Auto-Renew" switch located on the relevant Creator's profile. This means that if you want to stop subscribing to a Creator's profile and paying continuing monthly subscription charges, you will need to turn off the "Auto-Renew" switch located on the relevant Creator's profile.

If you cancel a Subscription you will continue to be permitted to view the relevant Creator's Content until the end of the subscription period in which you cancelled, after which no further payments will be taken from your payment card in respect of subscriptions to that Creator's profile, and you will no longer be able to view the relevant Creator's Content.

You agree that you will not make unjustified requests for a refund from any Creator which you follow, or unjustified chargeback requests of your payment card provider in relation to any transaction between you and a Creator. If we consider that any request for a refund or chargeback request was made by you in bad faith, we have the right to suspend or delete your User account.

Wallet credits: You can prepay an amount to us (known as "Wallet Credits") which you can later use to make Fan Payments. Purchases on fangram cannot be divided - if you attempt a purchase that costs more than the total amount of your remaining Wallet Credits, your payment card will be charged the full amount for that purchase. Wallet Credits are subject to a maximum amount as determined by us from time to time. Interest will not accrue on Wallet Credits. You are entitled upon request (whether before or after the termination of your agreement with us) to a refund of unused Wallet Credits, unless we reasonably determine that your request for a refund is not made in good faith.

Suspension of your User account: If we suspend your User account in accordance with our rights under the Terms of Service, then any Fan Payments which would otherwise have fallen due during the period of suspension of your User account will be suspended during the period of the suspension of your User account.

What are the fees that we charge Creators for the use of fangram?

We charge a fee to you of twenty per cent (20%) of all Fan Payments made to you (exclusive of any VAT element of the Fan Payment) (called Our Fee). The remaining eighty per cent (80%) of the Fan Payment (exclusive of any GST element of the Fan Payment) is payable to you (called "Creator Earnings"). Our Fee includes our costs of providing, maintaining and operating fangram and storing your Content. Our Fee is deducted from the Fan Payment, and Creator Earnings are paid to you in the way described in the Payouts to Creators section below.

How to set up your account as a Creator account:

To set up your account as a Creator account:

You will need on your User account page to upload a valid form of ID and one photo of you in accordance with the requirements set out here.

You will need on your User account page to add bank account details of your own bank account or the bank account of a corporate entity in which you are a Person with Majority Control.

You will need on your User account page to select one of the available methods provided by fangram as to how your Creator Earnings will be transferred to you. These methods are called Payout Options.

If you are registered for GST in India, you will need to provide us with your valid GST number.

You may also need to submit additional information depending on the country where you live.

We may ask you for additional age or identity verification information at any time. We may reject your application to set up a Creator account for any reason, including the reasons stated here.

Once you have set up your account as a Creator account, then if you want to charge your Fans a monthly subscription fee you will need to set your subscription price for your Fans within the range allowed by fangram as set out here.

You will then be able to start adding Content and Users will be able to subscribe to your account to become your Fans.

If you lose access to your account, you can reset your password, but you will need to know the email address used to set up the account to do so. If you do not recall the email address used to set up the account, we may require you to provide identification documents and photos and any additional evidence we may reasonably require to prove your identity.

Agencies cannot be Creators: Every Creator is the owner of their own account and must have access to their account at all times. If you have an agent or agency which assists you with the operation of your Creator account (or operates it on your behalf), this does not affect your personal legal responsibility. Our relationship is with you, and not your agent or agency, and you will be legally responsible for ensuring that all Content posted and all use of your account complies with the Terms of Service.

Creators who use corporate entities: If you set up a corporate entity to receive your Creator Earnings, you must provide evidence to us on request that you are the Person with Majority Control of that corporate entity. We will only pay your Creator Earnings into a bank account not held in your name where the bank account is held in the name of the corporate entity and you are the Person with Majority Control of that corporate entity. You agree that if you use a corporate entity to receive Creator Earnings you will comply with all laws (including Tax laws) which are applicable to corporate entities in the place where the corporate entity is established.

Subscriptions and purchases by Fans: This section describes the terms which apply to transactions and interactions between Fans and Creators:

All transactions and interactions facilitated by fangram are contracts between Fans and Creators on the terms of the Standard Contract between Fan and Creator. Although we facilitate transactions and interactions between Fans and Creators by providing the fangram platform, storing Content, and acting as a payment intermediary, we are not a party to the Standard Contract between Fan and Creator or any other contract which may exist between a Fan and Creator, and are not responsible for any transactions or interactions between Fans and Creators.

Fan Payments are exclusive of GST, which shall be added at the current rate as applicable to Fan Payments.

When a Fan has made the required payment for access to your Content, for the provision of customised Content or for use of the fan interaction function on your account, you must allow the Fan to view the Content paid for and/or provide the customised Content and/or allow the Fan to use the fan interaction function paid for (as applicable). You agree that you will indemnify us for any breach by you of this obligation (which means you will be responsible for any loss or damage (including loss of profit) we suffer as a result of you failing to comply with this obligation).

Content – general terms: In addition to the terms set out elsewhere in the Terms of Service (in particular in our Acceptable Use Policy), the following terms apply to the Content posted, displayed, uploaded or published by you as a Creator on fangram:

Your Content is not confidential, and you authorize your Fans to access and view your Content on fangram for their own lawful and personal use, and in accordance with any licenses that you grant to your Fans.

You warrant (which means that you make a legally enforceable promise to us) that for each item of Content which you post, display, upload or publish on fangram:

the Content complies in full with the Terms of Service (and in particular our Acceptable Use Policy);

you hold all rights necessary to license and deal in your Content on fangram, including in each territory where you have Fans and in the United Kingdom;

you either own your Content (and all intellectual property rights in it) or have a valid license to offer and supply your Content to your Fans;

if your Content includes or uses any third-party material, you have secured all rights, licenses, written consents and releases that are necessary for the use of such third-party property in your Content and for the subsequent use and exploitation of that Content on fangram; and

the Content is:

of satisfactory quality, taking account of any description of the Content, the price, and all other relevant circumstances including any statement or representation which you make about the nature of the Content on your account or in any advertising;

reasonably suitable for any purpose which the Fan has made known to you is the purpose for which the Fan is using the Content; and

as described by you.

You agree that you will be liable to us and indemnify us if any of the warranties at section 10(b) is untrue. This means you will be responsible for any loss or damage (including loss of profit) we suffer as a result of any of the warranties being untrue.

We are not responsible for and do not endorse any aspect of any Content posted by you or any other User of fangram. We do not have any obligation to monitor any Content and have no direct control over what your Content may comprise.

You also agree to act as custodian of records for the Content that you upload to fangram.

Co-authored Content:

If you upload Content to your Creator account which shows anyone else other than or in addition to you (even if that person cannot be identified from the Content) ("Co-Authored Content"), you warrant (which means you make a legally enforceable promise) that each individual shown in any Co-Authored Content uploaded to your account:

is a Creator on fangram;

has given his or her express, prior and fully informed consent to his or her appearance in the Co-Authored Content; and

has consented to the Co-Authored Content in which he or she appears being posted on fangram.

In addition to the confirmations in section 11(a) above, you agree that if you upload Co-Authored Content where the other person or people appearing in the Content can be identified from the Content, you will tag the fangram account(s) of any person or people appearing in the Co-Authored Content who can be identified from it.

You must not upload any Content containing any image, photo, video or audio of anyone else other than or addition to you unless such person is also a Creator on fangram.

If any Co-Authored Content is a work of joint authorship, you are solely responsible for obtaining any required licenses or consents from any other joint authors of the Content which are sufficient to permit such Content to be uploaded to and made available on fangram.

You agree that we will only pay out Creator Earnings to the account of the Creator to which the Co-Authored Content is uploaded. The Creator who uploaded the Co-Authored Content is solely responsible for dividing and distributing any revenue generated from the Co-Authored Content between the Creators shown in such Co-Authored Content. Any such revenue-sharing agreement shall be an independent, private agreement between Creators, and we are not responsible for providing or enforcing any such agreements. You understand and agree that you are not entitled to any Creator Earnings earned on any Co-Authored Content in which you appear but which is posted on another Creator’s account. If you post Co-Authored Content on your account, we may require you to provide valid and complete legal information for all individuals which appear in the Co-Authored Content. If you fail to provide any information requested by us upon our request, we may delete the Co-Authored Content, restrict your rights and permissions to post as a Creator, terminate your account, and/or withhold all or any portion of Creator Earnings earned but not yet paid out to you.

You agree to release us from and not to make any claims against us arising from Co-Authored Content. You agree that all claims arising from Co-Authored Content shall be made against the Creator(s) who posted Co-Authored Content or appeared in the Co-Authored Content (as applicable).

Payouts to Creators:

All Fan Payments will be received by a third-party payment provider approved by us.

We will receive the Fan Payment in full from the relevant payment provider. We will deduct Our Fee from the Fan Payment and then will hold the Creator Earnings on your behalf in our capacity as your agent.

Your fangram account will be updated within a reasonable time with your Creator Earnings. Your Creator Earnings will become available for withdrawal by you from your fangram account once such Creator Earnings appear in your fangram account.

To make a withdrawal of Creator Earnings from your fangram account, you must have at least the minimum payout amount in your fangram account. Please click on the settings page on your account to see what the minimum payout amount is for your country of residence and Payout Option.

The amount that you see in your ‘current balance’ in your fangram account is your Creator Earnings at the relevant time. All Fan Payments and Creator Earnings are transacted in INR only.

Your bank may charge you currency conversion or transfer fees to receive the money. Additionally, your e-wallet company may charge you a fee for accessing the money. We do not have control over currency exchange rates or charges imposed by your bank or your e-wallet company, and we are not responsible for paying any charges imposed by your bank or your e-wallet company.

If a Fan successfully seeks a refund or chargeback from their credit card provider in respect of a Fan Payment, we may investigate and may decide to deduct from your account an amount equal to the Creator Earnings earned by you on the charged-back or refunded amount.

Except for Payout Options involving payment by direct bank transfer from us, we do not store any data disclosed by you when you register your Payout Options with a third-party payment provider.

Circumstances in which we may withhold Creator Earnings:

We may withhold all or any part of the Creator Earnings due to you but not yet paid out:

if we think that you have or may have seriously or repeatedly breached any part of the Terms of Service;

if you attempt or threaten to breach any part of the Terms of Service in a way which we think has or could have serious consequences for us or another User (including actual or possible loss caused to us or another User); or

if we suspect that all or any part of the Creator Earnings result from unlawful activity, either by you or by the Fan who made the Fan Payment resulting in the Creator Earnings,

for as long as is necessary to investigate the actual, threatened or suspected breach by you or the suspected unlawful activity (as applicable). If following our investigation, we conclude that (i) you have seriously or repeatedly breached any part of the Terms of Service; (ii) you have attempted or threatened to breach any part of the Terms of Service in a way which has or could have serious consequences for us or another User (including actual or possible loss caused to us or another User), and/or (iii) the Creator Earnings result from unlawful activity, we may notify you that you have forfeited your Creator Earnings.

We shall not have any responsibility to you if we withhold or forfeit any of your Creator Earnings where we have a right to do so under these Terms of Use for Creators.

If we are withholding all or any part of the Creator Earnings due to you and we determine that part of the Creator Earnings withheld by us is unrelated to breaches by you of the Terms of Service or suspected unlawful activity, then we may pay to you the part of the Creator Earnings which we determine to be unrelated to breaches by you of the Terms of Service or suspected unlawful activity. However, you agree that if we consider that your breach(es) of the Terms of Service has or may cause us loss, we may withhold all Creator Earnings due to you but not yet paid and we may set off such amounts against any losses suffered by us.

If once we have finished our investigation we determine that Creator Earnings are forfeited, we will use our best efforts to return any Fan Payments which resulted in forfeited Creator Earnings to the relevant Fans who paid such Fan Payments.

Promoting Tax compliance and GST:

General:

We recommend that all Creators seek professional advice to ensure you are compliant with your local Tax and GST rules, based on your individual circumstances.

By using fangram as a Creator, you warrant (which means you make a legally enforceable promise) that you have reported and will report in the future the receipt of all payments made to you in connection with your use of fangram to the relevant Tax authority in your jurisdiction, as required by law.

By using fangram as a Creator you warrant (which means you make a legally enforceable promise) that you will at all times comply with all laws and regulations relating to Tax which apply to you. If, at any point whilst you have an fangram account, any Tax non-compliance occurs in relation to you (including a failure by you to report earnings or the imposition on you of any penalty or interest relating to Tax) or if any litigation, enquiry, or investigation is commenced against you that is in connection with, or which may lead to, any occurrence of Tax non-compliance, you agree that you will:

notify us by email to hello@fangr.am in writing within 7 days of the occurrence of the Tax non-compliance or the commencement of the litigation, enquiry or investigation (as applicable); and

promptly provide us by email to hello@fangr.am with:

details of the steps which you are taking to address the occurrence of the Tax non-compliance and to prevent the same from happening again, together with any mitigating factors that you consider relevant; and

such other information in relation to the occurrence of the Tax non-compliance as we may reasonably require.

For the avoidance of doubt, you are responsible for your own Tax affairs and fangram is not responsible or liable for any non-payment of Tax by Creators.

We reserve the right to close your fangram account if we are notified of or become aware of any Tax non-compliance by you.
