Areas of the Services within the proprietary online platform offered by Podcorn and Audacy may be subject to additional terms and conditions, which you should read carefully before making any use of those areas. Any such terms will not vary or replace the Podcorn Terms of Use regarding any use of the Services, unless otherwise expressly stated.

The Podcorn platform is provided solely (the “Permitted Use”) to: (1) assist you in gathering information about the various types of promotion opportunities and brand advertisers available on the our platform (each a “Brand Advertiser”), including profiles, price ranges, and promotion descriptions (each, a “Brand Advertiser Profile”); (2) enable you to post information regarding yourself and to respond to any Promotion opportunities; (3) post reviews of Brand Advertisers; (4) facilitate communication with Brand Advertisers with the objective of entering into a Promotion Agreement; and (5) facilitate the transmission of payments from the Brand Advertiser to you under a Promotion Agreement (all of which are considered Podcorn “Services”).

Except where prohibited by applicable law, Podcorn reserves the right to change these Terms of Use at any time without notice. We encourage you to review the Terms periodically. Your continued access to or use of the Platform after any changes to these Terms of Use indicates your acceptance of such changes. It is your responsibility to review these Terms of Use regularly.

Podcorn reserves the right to change any information, material or content (including, but not limited to, price, features, availability of Brand Advertisers, Brand Advertiser Profiles, types of promotions, and reviews of promotions and Brand Advertisers) contained on or provided through our platform (the “Content”) at any time, and from time to time, without notice.

6. Promotion Agreements with Brand Advertisers

The Platform permits you to view the Brand Advertiser Profiles of Brand Advertisers who have registered on our Platform and have chosen to allow you to view their Brand Advertiser Profiles. If a Brand Advertiser selects you for a Promotion through the Platform, you may separately enter into an agreement with that Brand Advertiser on such terms and conditions as may be agreed to between you and that Brand Advertiser (“Promotion Agreement”). For example, the Promotion Agreement may contain (a) a description of the services you will provide to the Brand Advertiser, (b) payment terms, and (c) any other terms and conditions as communicated between you and the Brand Advertiser through this Platform or otherwise. You understand that you are performing services for the Brand Advertiser, and not Podcorn, and that Podcorn is not a party to and will be in no way responsible for the performance of either you or the Brand Advertiser under any Promotion Agreement, except for facilitating the transmission of payment from the Brand Advertiser to you on their instructions in accordance with these Terms of Use. You further understand and agree that Promotional Content shall remain publicly accessible through your podcast distribution and/or social media channels (as specified in the Promotion Agreement) for a minimum of six (6) months, or such greater term as specified in the Promotion Agreement. Podcorn does not make any representations or warranties of any kind in respect of a Brand Advertiser or a Promotion Agreement. You also agree to act in good faith when negotiating and performing your obligations under each Promotion Agreement.

7. No Employment Relationship

As a Podcaster making use of our platform, you acknowledge and agree that you and Podcorn are in a direct business relationship, and the relationship between the parties under this Agreement is solely that of independent contracting parties. These Terms of Use are not an employment agreement and do not create an employment relationship between you and Podcorn. No partnership, agency, joint-venture, or employment relationship can be created between Podcorn and Podcasters through the Platform.

You will take no position with respect to or on any tax return or application for benefits, or in any proceeding directly or indirectly involving Podcorn that you are an employee of Podcorn.

You are solely responsible for determining which Promotions you will choose to accept, the manner in which you will perform your obligations under Promotion Agreements, and how, when, where, and how long you will use the Platform.

Podcorn does not restrict your right to provide services through other platforms or to other parties, including competitors of the Podcorn. Podcorn anticipates and expects that Podcasters performing Promotions through the Platform will provide services through other platforms. You acknowledge and represent you can earn income from other sources. Podcorn does not guarantee you any minimum amount of Promotions or that you will derive any minimum amount of income through the Platform.

Podcorn does not assess the performance of Podcasters, and does not oversee the performance of the Promotion Agreements or instruct the Podcaster as to how the Promotion Agreements will be performed.

Podcorn does not pay a salary or hourly rate but rather facilitates payment of the rate set by the Brand Advertiser.

Podcorn does not direct or control Podcasters generally or in their performance under these Terms of Use specifically, including in connection with performance of Promotion Agreements.

Podcorn does not provide training, tools, equipment, benefits, or expense reimbursement to Podcasters.

Podcorn does not dictate the time of performance of the Promotion Agreements, and you retain the option to accept, decline, or ignore Promotions.

Podcorn does not combine its business operations in any way with your business, but instead maintains its operations as separate and distinct.

You are responsible for obtaining and maintaining any required registration, licenses, or other authorization necessary for the services you render.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing:

Benefits and Contributions. You are not entitled to or eligible for any benefits that Podcorn, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates or other related entities may make available to their employees, such as group insurance, profit-sharing or retirement benefits. Podcorn will not withhold or make payments for social security, make unemployment insurance or disability insurance contributions, or obtain workers’ compensation insurance on your behalf. If, notwithstanding the foregoing, you are classified as an employee of Podcorn, or any affiliate of Podcorn (“Affiliate”), by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”), the U.S. Department of Labor (“DOL”), or any other federal, state or foreign court or agency, you agree that you will not, as the result of such reclassification, be entitled to or eligible for, on either a prospective or retrospective basis, any employee benefits under any plans or programs established or maintained by either the Customer and its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates or related entities or by Podcorn, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates or other related entities.

Taxes. You are solely responsible for filing all tax returns and submitting all payments as required by any federal, state, local, or foreign tax authority arising from payments to you under these Terms of Use, and you agree to do so in a timely manner. You will comply with all applicable federal, state, local, and foreign laws governing self-employed individuals, including laws requiring the payment of taxes, such as income and employment taxes, and social security, disability and other contributions. To the extent required by the IRS, Podcorn will report the payments paid to you under Promotion Agreements by filing Form 1099-MISC with IRS. You consent to electronic delivery of Form 1099-MISC, if such form is required or filed. You agree to indemnify Podcorn for the cost of any tax liabilities incurred by Podcorn as a result of your failure to pay all applicable taxes in a timely manner.

If Podcorn facilitates the transmission of any payments from the Brand Advertiser to you in connection with a Promotion Agreement (each, a “Facilitated Payment”), Podcorn may in its sole discretion withhold from any such Facilitated Payment any amounts that are payable to Podcorn by the applicable Brand Advertiser in connection with that Promotion Agreement. Podcorn is not your trustee or fiduciary in respect of any Facilitated Payments or any Promotion Agreements. Podcorn reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to place a hold on a Facilitated Payment if Podcorn determines that the funds may be subject to a breach of applicable law (e.g. fraud or money laundering), or if Podcorn is required to cooperate with law enforcement.

9. Off-Platform Agreements Prohibited

Neither you nor your agents or affiliates will directly or indirectly enter into an agreement for the creation of any Promotional Content with a Brand Advertiser that you contacted or connected with through the Platform except for Promotion Agreements for which Podcorn will receive a fee as provided for thereunder. Podcorn reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to ban Podcasters that engage in such prohibited agreements. Podcorn will not be responsible and bears no liability for the consequences of any such prohibited agreements.

10. Reviews and Comments

By submitting content to the Platform or Podcorn, including any Brand Advertiser or Promotion reviews, questions, comments, suggestions, ideas or similar information (collectively, “Submissions”), you grant Podcorn and its affiliates, a worldwide, nonexclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, transferable, irrevocable and fully sublicensable right to (a) use, reproduce, modify, adapt, translate, distribute, publish, create derivative works from and publicly display and perform such Submissions throughout the world in any media, now known or hereafter devised; and (b) use the name that you submit in connection with such Submission. You acknowledge that Podcorn may choose, but is not required, to provide attribution of your Submissions (for example, listing your name and city on a Brand Advertiser or Promotion review that you submit) at our discretion, and that such submissions may be shared with Brand Advertisers and others using our Platform. You further grant Podcorn the right to pursue at law any person or entity that violates your or Podcorn’s rights in the Submissions by a breach of these Terms of Use. You acknowledge and agree that Submissions are non-confidential and non-proprietary.

Podcorn takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any Submissions posted or submitted by you. Podcorn has no obligation to post your Submissions and reserves the right, in its absolute discretion to determine which Submissions are published on the Platform. If you do not agree to these Terms of Use, please do not provide us with any Submissions.

You are fully responsible for your Submissions, specifically including, but not limited to, reviews posted to the Platform. You acknowledge that Podcorn may exercise its rights (e.g. use, publish, delete) to use any Submissions without any notice to you.

14. Disclosure of Material Connections with Brand Advertiser

You are required to follow the Federal Trade Commission’s Endorsement Guides. In the event a Brand Advertiser engages you for a Promotion, you understand and agree that you are required to clearly and conspicuously disclose any material connection between you and the Brand Advertiser. Material connections include, but are not necessarily limited to, the Brand Advertiser providing you with something of value, such as monetary compensation or free use of products or services, in exchange for your participation in a Promotion. In general, disclosures should be:

  • in clear, conspicuous and unambiguous language; and
  • provided as close in time as possible to the native ads to which they relate

As a Podcaster, it is your responsibility to understand and abide by the requirements imposed on you by the FTC and to ensure that a clear and conspicuous disclosure is made each and every time you create Promotion Content.

If Podcorn learns of Promotions you create that do not, in our sole discretion, abide by the FTC endorsement disclosure guides, we may require you to add appropriate disclosures, and we may require you to suspend the Promotion until such disclosures are added. Repeated failure to include appropriate disclosures in your Promotions, or your failure to add disclosures upon request by Podcorn, may result in termination of your Account.

These Terms, including all additional terms, conditions, and policies on the Services, constitute the entire agreement between you and us and supersede all prior agreements with respect to the subject matter hereof. If any part of these Terms is determined to be invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, that provision will be removed, and the remainder of the Terms will continue to be valid and enforceable.

If any of the provisions contained in these Terms of Use conflict with the terms of another agreement between the parties (such as the terms of a Promotion Agreement in respect of a Promotion), then these Terms of Use shall prevail; provided that, if you are also a Brand Advertiser registered on our platform, the Terms of Use applicable to Brand Advertisers will govern your relationship with Podcorn in that respect.
