Snips Media provides its Service to you subject to these terms and conditions (the "Terms & Conditions"). As used throughout these Terms & Conditions, the term "Snips Media" or "us" or "we" or "our" refers to the owner of the website sni.ps, Snips Media, LLC. The term "you," "your," or "user," where appropriate, may refer to either general users, Influencers or Advertisers (as defined herein) who are using or viewing our Site or Service.

"Publicly accessible" areas of the Service are those areas of Snips Media that are intended by Snips Media to be available to the general public. By way of example, publicly accessible areas of the Service would include Snips Media news and resources that are open to both members and visitors. However, publicly accessible areas of the Service would not include portions of Snips Media that are limited to members, Snips Media services intended for private communication such as private messages, or areas off of Snips Media such as portions of World Wide Websites that are accessible through via hypertext or other links but are not hosted or served by Snips Media.
Payments from Snips Media are made through PayPal (http://www.paypal.com), check, or other payment services after the first Monday of every Month. Payments are generally disbursed within 30 days. Please allow at least 15 business days to process payments. The minimum amount required for an online payment is $1.00, and check payment is $10.00. However, Snips Media may elect to send smaller payments.
Influencers earn revenue based on a cost model and rate associated with each Advertisement Campaign and Influencer Program. Each month, Snips Media shall pay the influencer the balance for all earnings from the previous month on advertising campaigns, influencer programs, or program you participate in on the Snips platform, less a 10% service fee. The balance and earnings for each link is only an estimate of the actual value earned. Discrepancies may arise in your balance and earnings listed on the Snips Media website and those published by the advertisers. Snips Media reserves the right to review and adjust your earnings at any time based on actual data that it acquires from Advertisers.
For payments that are based on Influencer's participation in an Advertiser's Program on the Snips Platform, Snips Media can only release payments to Influencer after it receives notice from Advertiser that the Influencer has performed the requisite services. See the Advertising Policy for more information on disputes that may arise regarding payments.
If there are no matches to active advertising campaigns on the Service for your traffic demographics, then in such cases, the Influencer will not receive any earnings for the advertisement or lack thereof.
Snips Media will not remove any URLs or links associated with your Account, unless one of the Terms & Conditions stated is broken. In such circumstances, advertisements may be disabled on the link, or the link may be disabled entirely.
You are solely responsible for interactions with other Service users. Snips Media shall not be responsible for any damage or harm resulting from your interactions with other users of the Service.
