  • the tags (# and @) and accounts that Participants and Posts must identify;
  • the participation criteria for the Campaign: sex (male/female/other), rage of age, geolocation, areas of interest;
  • a selection of visuals (especially photographs and/or videos) that (i) enables Participants to illustrate the Campaign and see the product and/or service and/or the brand in question and that (ii) the Participants will be able to download as visual aid of their Post;

  • a « click and share »: option, which means an example of a post that Participants can simply repost/share on their Social Networks.

The submission of the totality of optional elements is not mandatory for the uploading of the Campaign on the Platform

It is specified, of which the Advertiser acknowledges being informed, that the more detailed and complete the Briefing put online for the Campaign is, the more:

  • the Campaign is likely to increase Participants’ interest for the race and therefore the impact of the Campaign;
  • the Posts made by the Participants will be pertinent and in conformity with the expectations of the Advertiser.

Regarding the submitted elements that compose the Briefing, the Advertiser:

  • is informed about the Participants conserving certain editorial independence in the creation and content of their Post (especially in their speech), which the Advertiser accepts; therefore, the Briefing shall not provide information that would go against this principle. For example, the Briefing will not be able to indicate, among the criteria to follow on each Post, that the Participant will have to pose with the product in a specific way, or dictate a precise format and description that go with the Post;
  • declares, acknowledges, and accepts that the Advertiser is responsible for all the published Campaigns, the Advertiser has the authorization for sharing and provide the content put on the Briefing that will be broadcasted on the Platform, the Advertiser is in compliance with the law in force and that its service and/or/ product exists and is in compliance with the description made, just as its brand is valid and registered;
  • undertakes to be the owner of the copyright of this content and in any case can oppose its spread on Social Networks by the Participants;
  • acknowledges that the duration of the Campaign depends on the responsiveness of the Participants and the pertinence of their Post, taking into account that Campaigns put online on the Platform are conceived indeed as a race, in the detailed conditions in theArticle 4.3.. of the Terms and Conditions.

Upon receiving the Briefing, The Social Company will have a period of thirty (30) days to decide on the request for uploading the Campaign of the Advertiser on the Platform; after this period, the request will be considered as refused.

The Social Company reserves the right, at its discretion, to refuse a Campaign, in particular if it deems that this one is contrary to its editorial policy and/or its image and/or its reputation (if it contains, for example, characteristic elements related to drugs, sex, violence, etc.).

The Social Company validates the Campaign request by sending an e-mail to the e-mail address that the Advertiser indicates.

If The Social Company validates the Campaign, The Social Company engages to launch it on the date settled with the Advertiser, which can differ from the one specified on the Briefing, depending on the agreements between the Parties.


As part of the implementation of the Campaign, The Social Company agrees to:

  • create a page dedicated to the Campaign on the Platform, which must respect the elements transmitted by the Advertiser in the Briefing and be accessible and visible to Users;
  • allocate to the Participants’ Posts the number of stars obtained according to the suitability of the Post and the Participant, including it in the calculation of the number of Tokens won by the Participant, under the conditions defined inArticle 4.3.. of the Terms and Conditions;

The Briefing and the appreciation of the Post in view of the Briefing is only made considering the established indications to best highlight the products and/or services of the Advertiser.

  • ensure a moderation service on the Participants’ Posts. The Social Company verifies multiple times a day that the content of the Posts is not contrary to the Terms and Conditions and the TCP, and that Participants’ behavior is consistent with the fair usages of the activity.

  • make and send to the Advertiser within fifteen (15) days following the end of the Campaign a report including:

  • the list of the totality of Posts made by Participants on Social Networks,
  • the amount of profits in euros that Participants obtained and,
  • the distribution of the Fund among them.

The Social Company may propose additional services to the Advertiser. These will be invoiced additionally, according to the quotation The Social Company submitted to the Advertiser, such as, in particular, the analysis in depth of the conditions of the Campaign and information concerning the audience of the Campaign and profiles of Participants (gender, age, and interests of Participants).


Awareness campaign / Brand awareness:

The Fund is distributed among Participants under the following conditions:

The registered Participant for the Campaign publishes a Post on one of his/her Social Networks. Then the Participant has a time frame of 48 hours to upload the aforementioned Post on his/her Account.

After the 48-hour period has passed between the spread hour of the Post on the Social Network and the uploading process of this Post on the Account, the Post will not be taken into account for the Campaign.

After that, for each Post, the Platform gives the Participant a number of Tokens according to the following two criteria:

  • The number of interactions on Social Networks, where the interactions correspond to “views”, “likes”, “comments”, and “shares” of the Post on the Social Networks, and where each interaction gives a different number of points depending on the type of interaction considered.

The more the Post generates interactions, the more its value increases and allows the Participant to win Tokens.

The starting point for calculating the number of interactions of the Post is the date of the publication of the Post on the Social Network in question.

  • a grade under the form of stars, on a scale from 1 to 3 stars, given to the Post by The Social Company according to the quality of the Post and its congruence with the Briefing criteria, as well as the suitability of the Participant’s profile. To date, the criteria of assessment regarding the awarding of stars made by The Social Company are the following:

The Social Company gives the grade in the form of stars to the Post between the 48 hours after uploading it on the Platform on the Account of the Participant.

Tokens are transformed into euros during the course of the Campaign. The reference value is: 100 tokens equal 1€.

These transformed Tokens are deducted from the Fund as they are given to Participants. The Campaign stops when the Fund gets to zero and its totality has been awarded to Participants. No other Post will be accepted after this point.
