Terms of Service (Fans)

These standard terms cover Fans participating in Campaigns on our site.  Please read them carefully.

This Site is provided by Audience Republic Pty Ltd (ABN: 96 606 311 095) (Company, we, us and our).

The Site is a software platform which enables companies or individuals (each, a Promoter) who wish to promote their products or services to create campaigns to engage with Fans (Campaigns) and use our Audience Manager software platform (Audience Manager) for that purpose.

When these Terms of Service refer to “Fan” or “you” we mean an individual (not acting as a Promoter) who wishes to participate in a Campaign and/or interact with a Promoter in some manner which is enabled through the Site.

When you use our Site, you agree with Audience Republic that you shall be bound by these Terms and Conditions which apply to a Fan’s use of our Site and our Privacy Policy which applies to all Users of our Site. Our platform is located at these URLs: audiencerepublic.comarep.co

What is a Campaign?

When a Promoter conducts a promotional campaign for products or services using the tools provided on our Site, that is called a Campaign. As part of the Campaign the Promoter may invite Fans to provide their email address, and, in some cases, offer rewards to Fans who have registered to participate in a Campaign. This is for the purpose of encouraging Fans’ participation in activities which help to promote the products and services

What you need to know about a Campaign:

Campaigns may be subject to terms and conditions between the Promoter and the Fan. Those terms and conditions are provided by the Promoter to the Fan when the Fan applies to participate in a Campaign.  When a Promoter creates a Campaign, and invites a Fan (you) to participate in that Campaign, the Promoter is making an offer to you which must be accepted by you as a pre-condition of your participation in the Campaign. That offer (and your acceptance) may form a binding contract between you and the Promoter. Audience Republic is not a party to that contract, which is entirely separate from these Terms of Service.

In summary:

  • These Terms of Service are between you and Audience Republic. They govern how you, and we, interact when you register on our Site.
  • Campaign participation terms and conditions are between you and the Promoter. They govern how you and the Promoter participate in a Campaign.
  • Those separate Campaign participation terms and conditions may constitute a contract between you and the Promoter. Audience Republic is not a party to that contract.
  • The Promoter is wholly responsible for administering and fulfilling their obligations, both implied and expressly stated, in any Campaign– including the delivery of any promised rewards to you; and
  • The Promoter is wholly responsible for complying with all applicable privacy laws affecting the Personal Information which you contribute to the Promoter. You must always comply with, and consent to our Privacy Policy.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure that the rewards offered by the Promoter and any Campaign participation terms and conditions between you and a Promoter are acceptable to you.

In some cases utilization of rewards by a Fan may be subject to further conditions imposed by a third party provider of the rewards (who may be a third party, separate and distinct from the Promoter).

For some rewards, the Promoter may need further information from you, (for example, your mailing address or shirt size), before they can deliver the reward. Thus, until the Promoter has the required information, the Promoter’s obligation to deliver the reward may be suspended.

Accordingly, although we expect Promoters to make all reasonable efforts to obtain any further required information relevant to rewards, Fans acknowledge as a condition of using our Site, that:

  1. they (Fans) may not receive promised rewards under a Campaign until all necessary information has been provided to the Promoter; and
  2. Audience Republic does not oversee and does not guarantee the performance by a Promoter or a Fan of their respective obligations to each other in respect of a Campaign.

We are under no obligation to become involved in a dispute between you or a Promoter.

In some jurisdictions, it may be prohibited to participate in a Campaign (depending upon the applicable terms and conditions imposed by the Promoter). You are responsible for complying with all relevant and applicable legislation when participating in a Campaign using our Site and you indemnify us for any loss or damage suffered by us or any claim made against us by a third party arising from your failure to comply with all relevant and applicable terms and laws when you use our Site to participate in a Campaign.

We reserve the right to reject, terminate or suspend a Campaign at any time and for any reason. If we do so, we are not liable for any damages that result from our doing so and we are not liable for any damages or loss incurred by you or a third party related to rewards or any use of the Site

When you register with a Promoter through our Site or participate in a Campaign then you enable Audience Republic and the Promoter to use the Site to store and analyse data about you and the products and services in which you are interested.

Some of the data collected and stored by the Promoter in this way may constitute Personal Information as that term is defined in our Privacy Policy.  Therefore, before we can process your Personal Information you need to review and consent to our Privacy Policy, otherwise you will not be able to register on our Site.

A Promoter may use your Personal Information in order to optimise their promotional efforts through a Campaign, or in other ways which are relevant to their business. Audience Republic may also use your Personal Information, as described in the Privacy Policy.

Recent important changes to data protection laws in the European Union make a distinction between entities that process Personal Information for their own purposes (known as “data controllers”) and organisations that process Personal Information on behalf of other organisations (known as “data processors”). In general, a question or complaint about how Personal Information is handled should be directed to the relevant data controller because they have primary responsibility for that Personal Information.

We may act as either a data processor or a data controller in respect of Personal Information, depending on the circumstances.

For example, if you as a Fan register on our site in order to provide Personal Information for a Campaign, we will process your Personal Information by hosting and enabling the Campaign and the functionality of our Site. We will also share your Personal Information with the Promoter and in that case, Audience Republic and the Promoter will be data controllers, and each will be responsible to comply with appropriate privacy legislation and to answer any questions from you (a Fan) or another third party relating to Personal Information collected from the Campaign.

In all cases, you should review and consent to our Privacy Policy which is a condition of registration on our Site.
