Thank you for using Embassy Social. Please read this End-User License Agreement (the “Agreement” or, alternatively, the “Terms”) carefully before using the Embassy application (the “Application”). By using the Application, you are agreeing to be bound by the terms and conditions in this Agreement.
If you do not agree to the terms of this Agreement, do not download or use the Application.
You acknowledge and agree that this Agreement is solely between and Embassy Social. More specifically, you acknowledge and agree that this Agreement is not with Apple. Embassy Social, not Apple, is responsible for the Application and, in accordance with our Terms and Services, the content thereof. To the degree that any of these usage rules conflicts with the Apple Media Services Terms and Conditions as of the Effective Date, the Apple Media Services Terms and Conditions shall control, and are incorporated as part of this Agreement.
When this Agreement refers to “Embassy”, “Embassy Social”, “us”, “we” or “our”, it refers to Embassy Social, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company. We also occasionally refer to the Embassy Social Application that helps you use our Services as the “Software”.
“you”, “your” and similar terms mean the person or legal entity accessing or using our Services.
Our websites or mobile sites, including embassysocial.io and any and all subdomains, present and future, and/or any services that you access or purchase through our websites are referred to as our “Website”.
User Content that is created and/or published to any of our Supported Platforms using our Software is referred to as our “Publishing Services”.
Use of our Software’s hashtag tracking attributes to ensure that our Software accurately displays a User’s Qualifying Engagements so that an Ambassador can receive credit for those Qualifying Engagements in any joined and applicable Campaign(s), and/or so that a Brand can track and manage its Campaign(s) is referred to as our “Hashtag Services”.
Creating, managing, and/or participating in any campaign or incentive program using our Software – specifically by a Brand creating a visible marketing campaign within our Software and associating it with a relevant hashtag(s) (“Qualifying Hashtag”) that an Ambassador can then feature in User Content on Linked Accounts to be recognized by our Hashtag Services is referred to as a “Campaigns”.
Using any of Embassy Social’s present and future Services, including any and all other Embassy Social products and services made available from time to time through the application is called our "Other Products".
Taken together, we call the Website, the Publishing Services, the Hashtag Services, the Campaigns, and the Other Products the "Services". To be clear, however, we do not use the term Services to include any third-party services (such as Facebook’s, Instagram’s, our Twitter’s provided services) that are not specifically provided by Embassy Social (“Third-Party Services”), even though you may use these Third-Party Services in connection with our Services.
Any applicable Embassy Social terms of service are referred to as the “Terms”.
Embassy Social has two types of users: “Brands” and “Ambassadors”. Brands are those users who create and manage Campaigns, and who are billed according to how many Engagements their Campaigns receive. Ambassadors are those users who participate in Campaigns by joining Campaigns and then featuring Qualifying Hashtags in User Content on Supported Platforms. Taken together, we call Brands and Ambassadors our “Users”. These two groups of users can occasionally overlap, but we define a user by what Services they are using in our Software at a particular moment in time – a user can be considered a Brand in one instance and an Ambassador in a different instance, in other words.
We use the term “User Content” to refer to any and all information and data (such as text, images, photos, videos, audio, hashtags, and/or documents) in any format that is uploaded to, downloaded from, or appears on our Services.
We use the term “Engagements” to refer to any comments, likes, shares, retweets, reposts, favorites, hearts, comments, and/or replies that User Content receives, that is detected by our Hashtag Services, and that is displayed by our Services. We use the term “Qualifying Engagements” to refer to those Engagements generated by User Content on an Ambassador’s Linked Account that includes a Qualifying Hashtag in a joined Campaign, which can then be detected by our Hashtag Services and displayed by our Services.
Our Software currently allows Users to link their Facebook, Instagram, and/or Twitter accounts to their Embassy Social accounts. Taken together, we call these (i.e. Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) our “Supported Platforms”. Once a User links their Embassy Social account with their account on a Supported Platform, we call that account a “Linked Account”.
Embassy Social offers Brands a way to create Campaigns that reward their Ambassadors for creating great content, and it offers Ambassadors a way to get rewarded for their content. Specifically, Brands create Campaigns using Embassy Social’s Software, and then assign those Campaigns specific Qualifying Hashtag(s). Ambassadors then choose to participate in Campaigns by joining Campaigns through the Software and then creating User Content that features the Qualifying Hashtag(s) on their Linked Accounts, which can then be recognized by our Hashtag Services. Our Software will then keep track of when an Ambassador has received enough Qualifying Engagements to qualify for certain Brand-defined rewards for reaching certain Brand-defined engagement goals, and will keep track of when a particular Campaign has met certain Brand-defined engagement goals (thus terminating the Campaign). Additionally, Brands not only gain trust and exposure through the Linked Accounts of their Ambassadors and the ability to manage their Campaigns through our Software, but they can also repost Ambassador User Content to their own Linked Accounts through our Software – raising the profile of both their own Brand and the Ambassador who created the User Content.
In strict accordance with this Agreement and all other applicable laws and terms of service, you agree to timely perform all transactions into which you enter. This includes, as relevant and applicable, promptly creating and/or publishing User Content, and promptly providing payment for such User Content. Failure to complete the terms of any proper transaction may result the termination of your access to the Application.
