Intellectual property rights – ownership and licenses:

You confirm that you own all intellectual property rights (examples of which are copyright and trademarks) in your Content or that you have obtained all necessary rights to your Content which are required to grant licenses in respect of your Content to us and to other Users.

You agree to grant us a license under all your Content to perform any act restricted by any intellectual property right (including copyright) in such Content, for any purpose reasonably related to the provision and operation of Winchats. Such acts include to reproduce, make available and communicate to the public, display, perform, distribute, translate, and create adaptations or derivative works of your Content, and otherwise deal in your Content.
The license which you grant to us under sub-section 10(b) above is perpetual, non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, sublicensable, assignable and transferable by us. This means that the license will continue even after your agreement with us ends and you stop using Winchats, that we do not have to pay you for the license, and that we can grant a sub-license of your Content to someone else or assign or transfer the license to someone else. This license will allow us, for example, to add stickers, text, and watermarks to your Content, to make your Content available to other Users of Winchats, as well as to use your Content for other normal operations of Winchats. We will never sell your Content to other platforms, though we may sell or transfer any license you grant to us in the Terms of Service in the event of a sale of our company or its assets to a third party.
Whilst we do not own your Content, you grant us the limited right to submit notifications of infringement (including of copyright or trademark) on your behalf to any third-party website or service that hosts or is otherwise dealing in infringing copies of your Content without your permission. Although we are not under any obligation to do so, we may at any time submit or withdraw any such notification to any third-party website or service where we consider it appropriate to do so. However, we do not and are under no obligation to police infringements of your Content. You agree that if we request, you will provide us with all consents and other information which we reasonably need to submit notifications of infringement on your behalf. Please see our Complaints Policy for how to make a complaint about infringement of intellectual property rights.
You waive any moral rights which you may have under any applicable law to object to derogatory treatment of any Content posted by you on Winchats. This waiver does not affect in any way your ownership of any intellectual property rights in your Content or the rights which you have to prevent your Content from being copied without your permission. The waiver is intended to allow us when dealing with your Content (as permitted by the license which you give us in section 10(b) above) to add watermarks, stickers or text to your Content.

Linking to and from Winchats:

Links to Winchats:

You may link to the Winchats homepage, provided you do so in a way that is fair and legal and does not damage our reputation or take advantage of it, but you must not establish a link in such a way as to suggest any form of association, approval, or endorsement on our part.
If you are a Creator, when promoting your Creator account you must comply with our Terms of Service and the terms of service of any other website where you place a link to or otherwise promote your Creator account.

Links from Winchats: If Winchats contains links to other sites and resources provided by third parties, these links are provided for your convenience only.

Interpretation: In these Terms of Use for Fans, defined terms have the same meanings given to them in the Terms of Use for all Users. In addition:

"VAT" means Belgium value added tax and any other tax imposed in addition to or in substitution for it at the rate from time to time imposed and any equivalent or similar governmental, state, federal, provincial, or municipal indirect tax, charge, duty, impost or levy in any other jurisdiction; and "Tax" shall include all forms of tax and statutory, governmental, state, federal, provincial, local government or municipal charges, duties, imposts, contributions, levies, withholdings or liabilities wherever chargeable and whether of the Belgium or any other jurisdiction.

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 Winchats as set out here.

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 Fan/Creator Transactions:

All Fan/Creator Transactions are contracts between Fans and Creators on the terms of the Standard Contract between Fan and Creator. Although we facilitate Fan/Creator Transactions by providing the Winchats platform and storing Content 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 Fan/Creator Transactions. Creators are solely responsible for determining (within the parameters for pricing on Winchats) the pricing applicable to Fan/Creator Transactions and the Content to which you may be given access. All prices appear in USD only.
Fan Payments are exclusive of VAT, which shall be added at the current rate as applicable to Fan Payments. To be able to enter into a Fan/Creator Transaction with a particular Creator, 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 and our subsidiary companies 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 USD. 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 and our subsidiary companies will not be 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) periodic payments from your payment card for Fan Payments which are Subscriptions; and (ii) immediate payments from your payment card for Fan Payments other than Subscriptions (including any tips paid by you to a 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 relevant subscription period, except if your payment card is declined, the subscription price for the Subscription 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 (unless you choose to pay for a new Subscription 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 in respect of any Fan/Creator Transaction or tip to a Creator, or unjustified chargeback requests of your payment card provider in relation to any Fan/Creator Transaction or tip to 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 on Winchats (known as "Wallet Credits") which you can later use to make Fan Payments. Purchases on Winchats 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. Wallet Credits are non-refundable, which means that you are not entitled to a refund of any unused Wallet Credits.
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.

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 to us) that each individual shown in any Co-Authored Content uploaded to your account is i) a Creator on Winchats; or ii) a consenting adult, and that you have verified the identity and age of each such individual and will provide supporting documents as we may request in our discretion.
You further warrant that you have obtained and keep on record written consent from each individual shown in your Co-Authored Content that such individual:

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

Any such revenue-sharing agreement shall be an independent, private agreement between you and such individual(s), 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 the individual(s) who 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.
If you have chosen the Stripe Payout Option, Stripe will collect the Fan Payment and pay the Creator Earnings to your bank account.
Where Stripe is not the Payout Option chosen by you, Our Fee will be deducted from the Fan Payment received and your Creator Earnings will be held by us or one of our subsidiary companies on your behalf.
Your Winchats account will be updated within a reasonable time with your Creator Earnings. Your Creator Earnings will become available for withdrawal by you from your Winchats account once such Creator Earnings appear in your Winchats account.
To make a withdrawal of Creator Earnings from your Winchats account, you must have at least the minimum payout amount in your Winchats account. Please click on the Banking 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 Winchats account is your Creator Earnings at the relevant time. All Fan Payments and Creator Earnings are transacted in USD only. If you have chosen the "Stripe" Payout Option then the Fan Payments and Creator Earnings figures will be reflected in your local currency, at an exchange rate controlled by Stripe. 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 and our subsidiary companies will not be 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 made to you, 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, 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 or fraudulent 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 or fraudulent activity, we may notify you that you have forfeited your Creator Earnings.

We may also withhold all or any part of the Creator Earnings due to you but not yet paid out if we receive notice that you have secured, encumbered, pledged, assigned, or otherwise allowed a lien to be placed on Creator Earnings. We undertake no duty to pay Creator Earnings to third-party lienholders and may withhold payment of Creator Earnings until the lien has been removed.
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 or fraudulent activity, then we may arrange for you to be paid the part of the Creator Earnings which we determine to be unrelated to breaches by you of the Terms of Service or suspected unlawful or fraudulent 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 (unless prohibited by law) use our best efforts to ensure that any Fan Payments which resulted in forfeited Creator Earnings are returned to the relevant Fans who paid such Fan Payments.
Promoting Tax compliance and VAT:

General:

We recommend that all Creators seek professional advice to ensure you are compliant with your local Tax and VAT rules, based on your individual circumstances.
By using Winchats 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 Winchats to the relevant Tax authority in your jurisdiction, as required by law.
By using Winchats 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 Winchats 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 vat@winchats.com 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 vat@winchats.com 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 we and our subsidiary companies (i) are not responsible for advising you on your Tax affairs and will not be liable in respect of any general information provided on Winchats or by support@winchats.com in respect of Tax, and (ii) will not be liable for any non-payment of Tax by Creators.
We reserve the right to close your Winchats account if we are notified of or become aware of any Tax non-compliance by you.
Belgium VAT andBelgium established Creators:

For the purposes of Belgium VAT only, Creators are treated as providing their services to Winchats, rather than to Fans directly.
If you are a Creator registered for Belgium VAT:

You will be treated, for VAT purposes, as charging Winchats your Creator Earnings (80% of all and any Fan Payments), together with Belgium VAT at the prevailing rate in force at the time of the Fan Payment;
Winchats also agrees that, subject to the terms set out in this section of these Terms of Use for Creators, you can add Belgium VAT at the prevailing rate in force at the time of the referral payment to the amount of any referral payments payable to you under the Referral Program Terms (" Referral Payments").
You agree to use the Winchats VAT invoice generator tool which can be found at:
to generate monthly VAT invoices, addressed to Meta Kicken, in respect of your Creator Earnings (and Referral Payments, if any) for the relevant period together with the VAT on such Creator Earnings (and Referral Payments, if any);
The VAT element added to your Creator Earnings (and Referral Payments, if any) (the "VAT Amount") will be paid to you by way of a separate payment outside of your regular Creator Earnings, provided that you must have submitted to us copies of the following before payment of the VAT Amount will be made to you:

REFERRAL PROGRAM TERMS
WARNING!
In compliance with regulation 3 of the Trading Scheme Regulations 1997 (as amended) and section 120(1) of the Fair Trading Act 1973, please read the warning below in respect of the Winchats Referral Program:

It is illegal for us or for a participant in the Winchats Referral Program (including Referring Users and Referred Creators) to persuade anyone to make a payment by promising benefits from getting others to join the Winchats Referral Program. Do not be misled by claims that high earnings are easily achieved from participation in the Winchats Referral Program.
Although we do not demand any payment from Referring Users for the purposes of participating in the Winchats Referral Program, we are legally required to inform you that if you sign this contract, you have 14 days in which to cancel and get your money back. Introduction: These Referral Program Terms are additional terms which apply if you use the Winchats Referral Program. These Referral Program Terms form part of your agreement with us. Interpretation: In these Referral Program Terms defined terms have the same meanings given to them in the Terms of Use for all Users. In addition:

"Referring User" is also referred to as "you" or "your" in these Referral Program Terms;
"Referred Creator" means the person who joins Winchats as a Creator via the Referring User's unique referral link.
What is the Winchats Referral Program? Winchats offers a referral program by which existing Users can introduce people who are interested in becoming Creators to Winchats and receive referral payments from Winchats which are calculated and limited as described in these Referral Program Terms.

The rules of the Winchats Referral Program:

Only Users of Winchats with a current User account can participate in the Winchats Referral Program. If a User's account has been suspended or terminated by us for any reason or deleted by the User, that User will not be eligible to participate in the Winchats Referral Program.
You will need on your User account page to add a bank account or a payment method details of your bank account or a payment method in order to receive referral payments under the Winchats Referral Program. Each User has a unique referral link (which can be accessed via the User's User account) which the User may share with others. When sharing your unique referral link you must not impersonate Winchats or give the impression that your referral link is being shared or promoted by us. You must not use Google Ads or any similar advertising platform or search engine advertising service to share or promote your unique referral link. Upon our request, you must disclose the methods by which you share your unique referral link in the Bio/Website field of your Winchats account.
The Referred Creator must click on your unique referral link and then register with Winchats using the same browser that they used to click on your unique referral link. If someone registers with Winchats other than by using your unique referral link, we will not link that account to your referral and no referral payments will be made to you.
The Referred Creator must not have opened a User account with Winchats (whether under the same name or another name) before clicking on your unique referral link. If the Referred Creator is currently or has previously been a User of Winchats no referral payments will be made to you for the referral.
If the Referred Creator sets up more than one User account referral payments will be made to you on the earnings made by the Referred Creator from their first User account only. No referral payments will be made to you on any further User accounts set up by the Referred Creator.
No referral payments will be made to you on any referral of a Referred Creator which we determine is owned or operated by you, or is in a commercial relationship with you. You will provide any information which we request to enable us to determine whether the Referred Creator is owned or operated by you or if there is a commercial relationship between you and the Referred Creator.
You agree that when promoting Winchats in any way as a Referring User:

you will not give a false impression of Winchats, the services, programs, and content (including Content) made available through Winchats, its Users or the Terms of Service; and
you will not make any statements which suggest to a potential Creator that the potential Creator will make a particular sum of money (or any money) from their use of Winchats, or any statements regarding the likely number of Fans.
