          3. Not make any false, misleading or deceptive statement about Advertiser or Advertiser’s products or services, and not make any product performance or attribute claims about Advertiser’s products or services. Influencer may express opinions, but will not make any factual claims about the products or services;
          4. Ensure that any Posts and statements provided in connection with Posts accurately reflect Influencer’s honest, current opinions and beliefs based on Influencer’s personal experience, including with Advertiser’s products or services. Influencer will notify Advertiser if any Posts or statements cease to reflect Influencer’s honest views, opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences with Advertiser or Advertiser’s products or services, and will then reasonably cooperate with Advertiser to revise the Posts such that the statements are accurate or remove such Posts to the extent within the control of Influence;
          5. Not purport to speak on behalf of Advertiser, its representatives or agents; and
          6. Conduct activities related to Campaign in a manner appropriate for a family audience, avoid controversial or potentially damaging statements about Advertiser; make sure any social media Posts created as part of the Campaign follow the relevant website or application’s posting requirements and terms of use; not make, use, or distribute any offensive comments or sexually explicit material; not disparage, libel, slander, or defame any person, entity, product, or service including a competitive product or service; and not promote any illegal activities.

DNA AND ITS SUPPLIERS AND LICENSORS EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY, REGARDING THE PLATFORM, CONTENT, USER DATA AND ANY OTHER INFORMATION, MATERIALS AND SERVICES PROVIDED BY DNA THROUGH THE PLATFORM, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE, MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. DNA DOES NOT REPRESENT OR WARRANT THAT THE PLATFORM, CONTENT, USER DATA OR ANY ASSOCIATED INFORMATION, MATERIALS AND SERVICES WILL BE AVAILABLE, ERROR FREE, COMPLETELY SECURE, VIRUS FREE, OR WITHOUT INTERRUPTION, OR THAT THEIR FUNCTIONS WILL MEET ANY PARTICULAR REQUIREMENTS. FURTHERMORE, DNA SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE RETENTION OR STORAGE OF ANY CONTENT, POSTS AND/OR USER DATA IN THE APP OR PLATFORM. THE PLATFORM, CONTENT AND/OR USER DATA MAY BE SUBJECT TO LIMITATIONS, DELAYS, AND OTHER PROBLEMS INHERENT IN THE USE OF THE INTERNET AND DNA IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DELAYS, DELIVERY FAILURES OR OTHER DAMAGE RESULTING FROM SUCH PROBLEMS. DNA may retain Content, Posts and User Data in accordance with its internal retention policies; however, due to certain unforeseen circumstances such as server outages or telecommunications failures, DNA cannot guarantee the storage of Content, Posts and/or other content and materials created during Campaigns.

      1. By DNA. DNA, at its own expense, shall:
        1. defend, or at its option settle, any claim, suit or proceeding brought by a third party against a User and its licensors, suppliers, officers, directors, employees and agents (if applicable) alleging that the Platform itself infringes an existing United States copyright or trademark; and
        2. pay any final and non-appealable judgment entered or settlement against User thereon; provided, however, that DNA shall not be responsible for any compromise or settlement made without its prior written consent. If the Platform is or may become the subject of such a claim, DNA may, at its option:
          1. modify or replace the affected parts so the Platform becomes non-infringing or
          2. terminate this Agreement and refund Users for any prepaid and unused fees. DNA shall have no obligation with respect to any infringement claim based upon
            1. Content or User Data or
            2. a User’s combination, operation or use of the Platform with non-DNA applications, information or services if the infringement claim would have been avoided had such combination, operation or use not occurred. Where infringement claims arise with respect to third party products, DNA’s sole obligation is to pass through to User any indemnity that may be available to User under the terms and conditions of the agreement between DNA and such third party vendor. THIS SECTION STATES THE ENTIRE LIABILITY OF DNA, AND A USER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY, FOR ANY INFRINGEMENT INVOLVING THE PLATFORM.
      2. By Users. Each User will, if instructed by DNA, defend, and in any event indemnify, and hold harmless DNA and its affiliates and its and their licensors, suppliers, officers directors, employees and agents, from and against any and all claims, actions, proceedings, governmental orders, losses, liabilities, damages, fines, penalties, costs and expenses (including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees, settlements and judgments) arising out of or incurred as a result of:
        1. any breach of this Agreement by User;
        2. User’s use of the Platform, or any component thereof;
        3. Content (if applicable) and User Data; and/or
        4. any claim, proceeding or action to compel the disclosure of Content, User Data and/or the User’s Confidential Information, including, without limitation, a request for information, subpoena, deposition or testimony; provided, however, that User shall not be obligated to indemnify DNA entities to the extent the claim is caused by DNA’s gross negligence or willful misconduct, or if the claim is covered by DNA’s indemnification obligation in Section 13.1.
      3. Process. The indemnified party shall give the indemnifying party prompt notice upon becoming aware of the claim for which it seeks indemnification, and shall give the indemnifying party the right to solely control and direct the investigation, preparation, defense and settlement of the claim. The indemnified party shall fully cooperate with the indemnifying party, at the indemnifying party’s expense, in such defense and settlement. The indemnified party shall have the right, at its cost, to employ counsel of its choice to participate in the defense of such claim, and shall not settle or consent to the entry of judgment in such claim without the indemnifying party’s prior written consent.




      1. Assignment. The Agreement and all rights and obligations hereunder are not assignable or transferable by any User without the prior written consent of DNA, and any attempt to do so shall be void.
      2. Force Majeure. DNA will not be in default or otherwise liable for any delay in or failure of its performance under this Agreement if such delay or failure arises by any reason beyond its reasonable control, including without limitation acts of nature, acts of war, terrorism, labor or material shortages, infrastructure problems, effects of epidemics or pandemics (including governmental guidance with respect thereto) and government actions and requirements.
      3. Governing Law and Venue. This Agreement is deemed to be made under and shall be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Delaware, excluding its conflict of laws provisions.  Any suit or proceeding relating to this Agreement shall be brought only in the state and federal courts located in West Palm Beach, Florida, and both parties hereby submit to the jurisdiction of such courts.
      4. Independent Contractors. As between
        1. Advertisers and Influencers and
        2. DNA and all Users, each party is an independent contractor and nothing in this Agreement will be deemed to create any agency, employee-employer relationship, partnership, or joint venture as between or among the parties. Except as otherwise specifically provided in this Agreement, no party will have or represent that such party has the right, power or authority to bind, contract or commit any other party or to create any obligation on behalf of any other party.
      5. Notices. All notices and consents required or permitted under this Agreement must be in writing; must be personally delivered or sent by registered or certified mail (postage prepaid) or by overnight courier, in each case to the address DNA has in its records for each User in connection with an Advertiser’s registration for the Platform and an Influencer’s use of the App. Notices to DNA should be sent to 224 Datura Street Suite 1407 West Palm Beach, Florida 33461, and a copy of any notice should be sent to DNA electronically at Each party may change its address for receipt of notices by giving notice of the new address to the other party.
      6. Media. DNA will not use a User’s name, image or likeness in sales and marketing materials or public statements without the User’s prior written consent.
      7. Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court of law to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable, the legality, validity, and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement will not be affected or impaired thereby and the illegal, invalid, or unenforceable provision will be deemed modified such that it is legal, valid, and enforceable and accomplishes the intention of the parties to the fullest extent possible.
      8. Waivers. The failure of either party to enforce any provision of this Agreement, unless waived in writing by such party, will not constitute a waiver of that party’s right to enforce that provision or any other provision of this Agreement.
      9. No Third Party Beneficiaries. Other than as expressly set forth herein, this Agreement is made and entered into for the sole protection and benefit of the parties hereto, and no other person or entity shall be a direct or indirect beneficiary of, or shall have any direct or indirect cause of action or claim in connection with this Agreement.
      10. Remedies Cumulative. The enumeration herein of specific remedies shall not be exclusive of any other remedies unless otherwise expressly stated herein. Any delay or failure by any party to this Agreement to exercise any right, power, remedy or privilege herein contained, or now or hereafter existing under any applicable statute or law, shall not be construed to be a waiver of such right, power, remedy or privilege, nor to limit the exercise of such right, power, remedy, or privilege, nor shall it preclude the further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power, remedy or privilege.
      11. Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter herein and therein, and supersedes all prior discussions, understandings and agreements with respect to its subject matter. Any terms on a purchase order, payment document, or other document submitted by a User shall be void and have no force or effect.
