Creator Terms

  • We’re glad you’re keen on becoming an AR creator with us.
  • Imagine creating what you want, when you want, from the comfort of your own home, making passive income whether you’re working or not. Some of our creators build AR experiences in their free time as a hobby, some do it to get their name out there, and some are able to make it their full-time profession.
  • These terms for creators (‘Creator Terms’) are applicable to all those who get selected by us to join the Superfan Studio platform as creators. You’ll need to agree to the terms before you apply to be a creator. These govern the relationship, rights, and obligations of creators to us, and customers using Superfan Studio. You agree to put your AR effects on Superfan Studio and make them available to buyers on the basis stated in the Superfan Studio Terms and these Creator Terms.
  • When we say "you", "your" or other second person pronouns in these Creator Terms we are referring to you, the creator who intends to apply to Superfan Studio as a creator. "We", "us", "our" and other first person pronouns refer to Superfan Studio. If there’s any inconsistency between what we say in these Creator Terms and what is in the Superfan Studio Terms, what we say in these Creator Terms prevails.
  • Read on for details about your creator responsibilities, the process of uploading your effects on Superfan Studio, and how you can earn money with us.
Becoming an AR Creator
Becoming an AR creator and putting your work up on Superfan Studio is free but there is a review process. We reserve sole control over the selection process. Creators are selected at our discretion, based on the quality of their AR work. There are a few things you warrant in exchange for the right to be a creator, which are outlined in these Creator Terms.
How selling your effect works
  • What you'll provide:
    • License: When you "sell" an effect, you’re making your work available to customers to use as templates to create their own AR effects. They will have the ability to modify certain elements of your template in order to customize it. The resulting AR effect is solely the property of the customer and will not be associated in any way with the original template or you, its creator.
    • Exclusivity: When you become a creator, you can choose to make your AR effects and related work available exclusively on Superfan Studio, or retain the ability to sell your effects elsewhere. The percentage of revenue you receive from each purchase of your effect will vary depending on your choice.
    • Your earnings; creator fee: When your template is sold on Superfan Studio, you will earn the effect price component of the listed price minus a creator fee that we charge. The creator fee is what you are charged by Superfan Studio for the use of our platform and services as a creator. The creator fee is determined by whether you are selling the effect only on Superfan Studio exclusively and by the aggregate value of list price sales you’ve had in the past. The creator fee you pay to us is set out in the rates schedule that we can change at our discretion. Any changes to these rates will take effect on and from the date on which notice of the variation is posted by us on Superfan Studio.
    • Setting the prices of effects: As a creator, you are responsible for setting the prices for your effect. You must make all pricing decisions independently, and discussions about your pricing decisions (including with other creators) are not permitted under any circumstances.
    • Review: We have certain rules about what we accept and don’t accept as templates on Superfan Studio. Although we always like to provide constructive feedback we’re not obliged to give you any reasons for rejecting your effect. We have the final say on whether an effect meets the criteria for Superfan Studio.
    • No Variation: You are not permitted to vary these terms as they apply to you and customers, or to offer your effects on different terms or with additional terms (for example, through your effect description pages). Any different or additional terms that you try to impose on Superfan Studio or your effects will have no effect on customers or Superfan Studio.
How do payments of earnings work
  • We will pay you the effect price component of the total price minus the creator fee (‘your earnings’ or ‘earnings’). In order for us to do this, you authorize us to collect payments, to credit your Superfan Studio account with your earnings, and to pay out your earnings to you. We may use another Superfan Company to do these things for us.
  • To avoid any confusion, only your earnings from the sale of your effects (and referral income under our separate Affiliate Program) will be payable to you.
  • Thresholds: We’ll make payments of your earnings based on certain minimum threshold amounts. For more information see our help center.
  • Earnings payment timing and methods:
    • You ask us to hold the balance of your earnings until they are paid out to you, the Superfan Studio account holder. You can set up an automatic payment destination that must be owned by you, the Superfan Studio account holder. Where your earnings reach certain threshold amounts, we make monthly payouts of your earnings to your payment destination.
    • When we get a request for payment, we’ll pay you at the next payment cycle as stated on our Creator Help Center page.
    • You must provide us with the correct details and payment method when you set your payment destination.
    • We reserve the right to pay your earnings to you, at any time, at our discretion.
    • You may bear some or all expenses incurred by us in paying monies to you.
  • Potential deductions:
    • Payment methods available for buyers to buy your effects involve payment agents that have their own standard terms and conditions regarding refunds, chargebacks, fees, and unauthorized transactions (which we don’t control). If a Superfan Studio transaction on an effect is subject to payment agents’ refunds, chargeback, fees, or unauthorized transactions, we may automatically deduct those amounts from your Superfan Studio account.
    • You or we may also decide to issue a credit or refund to a buyer in certain circumstances involving issues with your effect outlined in the Superfan Studio Refund Rules, or transactions that may be reversed for other reasons. If that happens, we reserve the right to deduct from your Superfan Studio account any amount that would otherwise be payable to you.
    • If you breach any warranty you have made to us we may offset any amount that we have to pay to anyone else as a result of your breach, against any payments due to you.
  • Payment errors: We will continue to hold your earnings if we’re not able to pay your earnings to you for whatever reason, including if:
    • we do not have the correct payment details;
    • we can’t contact you using the contact details that you have supplied;
    • you have not made a request for payment; or
    • you are asking for payment to be made to a person, an institution or a country that we’re legally prohibited from making payments to, or where there are limitations in the banking systems.
  • Currency conversions: Whenever we make a payment to you as a creator, you are responsible for all costs of converting the amount of the payment from US dollars into your preferred currency. Your financial institution does the currency conversion and may charge you additional fees (we don’t control either the conversion rates or your financial institution’s fees).
  • Holding earnings: If we decide that an effect of yours does not comply with applicable law or any of our rules or guidelines, including the Superfan Studio Terms and these Creator Terms, we can at our discretion disable the effect or your membership. We may also hold any earnings on that effect or your account for up to two years and may release those held earnings during that period if we are satisfied that any dispute or issue about your effect has been resolved.
Creator house-keeping
  • Taxes that apply to our supplies: Any fees paid by you for supplies made to you by Superfan Studio in connection with these terms exclude Indian GST (unless expressly stated otherwise on the site). If we make a supply under or in connection with these terms on which Indian GST is imposed, any applicable fee that we charge for that supply is increased by, and you must also pay to Superfan Studio, an amount equal to the GST payable by Superfan Studio on that supply.
  • Taxes that apply to your supplies:
    • As a creator for Superfan Studio, you are responsible for paying any taxes that apply (with the exception of VAT in an EU Member State, GST in India, and in respect of specific “marketplace states” in the United States). Superfan Studio will charge, collect, and account for:
      • VAT in an EU Member State when a buyer is located in an EU Member State and does not provide a valid EU VAT Identification number. When a buyer is located in an EU Member State and does provide a valid EU VAT Identification Number, it is the buyer’s responsibility to self-account for VAT. It is not your responsibility as an author to account for VAT when a buyer is located in an EU Member State.
      • GST in India when a buyer is located in India. Superfan Studio is registered for Indian GST and you authorize Superfan Studio to issue tax invoices in respect of any supplies (including license sales) made by you to Indian customers.
      • Sales tax when a buyer is located in a “marketplace state” in the United States.
        We explain which states are marketplace states and what we do with respect to those states here.
    • If required by law, we may deduct or withhold taxes (including withholding tax) in connection with your being a creator. If so, we will give you relevant documentation that’s required by law about the deduction or withholding (like documentation allowing you to access rebates or credits, or to manage your tax affairs).
    • We may collect geographical location information to determine your location. You may be required to give us tax-related documentation or information to help us identify you. Information and documentation may be used for tax purposes, so the information you give us must be accurate. Information or documentation may be collected by Superfan Studio and disclosed to or handled by another Superfan Company. We or another Superfan Company may disclose or submit your information to regulators and government authorities in connection with our compliance procedures and obligations.
  • Invoices: We will issue invoices (or in some cases tax invoices) for transactions between creators and buyers on Superfan Studio.
Your warranties and responsibilities:
  • As a creator, you warrant to us and each buyer of your effects that:
    • the effect is of acceptable quality and fits for the purpose for which it is ‘sold’;
    • the effect matches the description given by you on the effect preview page, as well as any effect preview;
    • you will honor any express warranties given to buyers that are not contained in the Superfan Studio Terms;
    • you have rights necessary to license that effect on the terms of the applicable license;
    • the buyer’s use of that effect in accordance with the terms of the applicable license does not infringe the intellectual property rights of someone else;
    • the effect and its description are not false, inaccurate, misleading, fraudulent, unlawful or defamatory;
    • the effect and its description do not violate any applicable law or regulation (including those governing export control, consumer protection, unfair competition, criminal law, pornography, anti-discrimination, trade practices or fair trading);
    • the effect does not contain viruses or other computer codes, files or programs which are designed to limit or destroy the functionality of other computer software or hardware;
    • where relevant, you have the appropriate model or property release for your effect and you can produce a copy of that model or property release when requested by us or a buyer of your effect; and
    • you will process a buyer’s information in accordance with applicable privacy law and data protection regulations.
  • If you make your effects available on Superfan Studio for free, then the warranties you make to buyers also apply to anyone who downloads your effect from Superfan Studio. In certain circumstances, we may also allow a buyer to purchase an effect for another member, and in this case, you also agree that these warranties apply to the member for whom the effect is purchased.
  • As a creator you warrant to us that: you will not use Superfan Studio to offer non-Superfan Studio goods or services to buyers;
    • you will not buy your own effects;
    • you will follow any creator guidelines provided by us, act in good faith, and provide assistance and co-operation as we reasonably request;
    • information and documentation you give us (like your name and address) is accurate; and
    • where you have marked an effect as ‘supported’, you will provide buyers of your effect with support for the included support period and any support extension period purchased, unless we agree otherwise.
  • Buyers’ use of your effect: We are not liable for any loss suffered by you as a result of a buyer or any other person making use of your effect contrary to the Superfan Studio Terms or the effect’s license.
  • Other creators and affiliates’ use of your effect: A Superfan Studio affiliate can use your effect thumbnail previews in their promotion of Superfan Studio and no compensation is due for these uses. A fellow creator may use a watermarked preview of your effect in a preview of another effect on any Superfan Company site without requiring your permission and without compensating you. The watermarked effect is credited either by providing a link to your effect on Superfan Studio or by otherwise attributing your Superfan Studio effect to you.
  • Our use of your effect: We may use the whole or part of your effects to promote Superfan Studio. This promotional use may include use in public relations, emails, on a features page, or on other sites (e.g. social networks). No compensation is payable for these uses.
  • effect removal: We have the right to remove an effect for any reason, using our reasonable discretion. For example, we may review the libraries to keep Superfan Studio fresh and full of quality effects that meet the latest technical standards and market trends. Also, issues about an effect might be brought to our attention such as errors, representations, or even violations. Our goal is always to address these situations with you constructively. We also aim to give you notice before an effect is removed, but this is not always feasible or possible, so we can’t guarantee this. We will not be responsible for any loss that you may suffer as a result of your effect being removed.
Personal information
  • In order to facilitate a transaction on Superfan Studio, we may provide you with relevant buyer information and also may provide buyers with your relevant information (for example for invoicing or effect support services). You agree that you will keep buyer information confidential and only use this information for that Superfan Studio transaction in compliance with applicable privacy and data protection laws.
  • If over and above what Superfan provides you with, a member or a model (via a model release) voluntarily provides you with (or your effect accesses or uses) usernames, passwords, photo identification or other personal information of the member or model (personal information), you must:
    • provide a privacy notice, making the member or model aware of their personal information that you will receive and how you will handle that information;
    • obtain the member’s or model’s permission to use their personal information;
    • use the personal information only for the limited purposes for which the member or model gave permission; and
    • meet any privacy and spam law requirements that apply to you.
Special deals and promotions
  • Sometimes we might negotiate volume sales or other arrangements with buyers as part of creating business development opportunities for creators (special deals). In order for us to make this possible you give us permission to negotiate special deals. We might also offer pricing promotions to Superfan Studio customers. In some cases, if pricing promotions involve a change in the creator fee or licensing terms, then it is a special promotion and the following sections are relevant.
  • Given the nature of special deals, the prices of your effects under the special deal may vary from the advertised effect price. This means that your earnings on the sale of your effects in a special deal may not always be determined by reference to the advertised price of your effect on Superfan Studio. Given the nature of special deals and special promotions, the creator fee may differ for special deals or special promotions.
  • Before your effect is included in a special deal or special promotion, we’ll provide you with information about the special deal or special promotion, effect pricing, and creator fee. You can opt-out of participating in a special deal or special promotion if the deal involves a change to the creator fee. We will let you know the time frame to opt-out, and if you don’t do so, your effect will be included in the special deal or special promotion.
  • Special deals and special promotions might also involve you entering supplementary licensing arrangements to allow the buyer to use your effect in particular ways. If these supplementary licenses are substantially different from the standard Superfan Studio licenses, you will also have the opportunity to opt-out of participating in the special deal or special promotion within the time frame we set out when we make the offer to you.
Legal housekeeping
Relationship between us and you: Nothing in these terms is to be construed as constituting a partnership, joint venture, employment or agency relationship between you and us. Neither you nor us can act on behalf of the other in any way. However, you appoint us as your limited agent only for these specific purposes:
  • for receiving Buy Now payments from buyers (the buyer’s obligation to pay you for an effect will be met when they make a Buy Now payment to us or a Superfan Company);
  • for passing on your warranties to buyers;
  • for limiting your liability to buyers.
