Terms and Conditions
Last updated: April 13, 2023
These Terms and Conditions (the “Agreement”) set forth the terms and conditions that apply to your access and use of the internet website owned and operated by CreatorUp, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“CreatorUp”), and located at 525 S. Hewitt St. Los Angeles 90013, including all subsidiary webpages and access to any version of the Site via a wireless device or application (the “Site”). Through the Site, CreatorUp allows you to order and access customized media content production services (the “Content Production Services”), as well as view educational materials designed to train and inform on content production knowledge and skills (the “Educational Services” and together with the Content Production Services and all other services offered by CreatorUp through or in connection with the Site, the “Services”).
It should be noted that some of the Services are based on ChatGPT and other generative-AI services. If countries block such services, this in turn, will be reflected in CreatorUp's Services. Currently, a number of countries, including Italy, China, Iran, North Korea and Russia block some, or all, of these generative-AI services. This Agreement is legally binding between you, the person using this Site (“you”), and CreatorUp. Terms such as “we,” “our” and “us” refer to CreatorUp.
Throughout this Agreement there are brief summaries of legal terms marked “WHAT THIS MEANS:”. Such descriptions are provided merely for convenience purposes and are qualified in their entirety by the full terms of this Agreement.
On our Site, we may provide short summaries of the terms and conditions in this Agreement. Any such summaries are provided only for your convenience, are not legally binding and do not modify this Agreement in any way.
The Terms and Conditions in an existing and currently effective Master Services Agreement at the time of placing an order will supersede the Terms and Conditions through the CreatorUp Marketplace. Otherwise, the Terms and Conditions listed here will prevail.
The purchase or use of any of our products (including AI) in any region or jurisdiction in which using them would be in violation of local laws is strictly forbidden and is a violation of these terms and conditions.

Provision of Certain Services
WHAT THIS MEANS: If you order Content Production Services, we’ll do our best to deliver your project, as requested. After you make an order, we’ll have a call to go over project specifics. We do our best to make our pricing as transparent as possible, but depending on what you need, there may be additional costs. Anything you change after the call may also result in additional fees. If you want us to film at a specific location, you have to make sure we have access. We offer a generative AI service, but the law is complicated and can’t make guarantees about IP ownership. You give us permission to use the content you create with our generative AI for our marketing and research purposes.
If you purchase Content Production Services, we will complete those Content Production Services according to the specifications you gave us in the purchase order to the best of our ability. If at any time you want to change any of the specifications in a purchase order, we will try to work with you to render the Content Production Services according to the new specifications. If the new specifications will cause us to incur additional cost, we will notify you before continuing. If you fail to pay for such additional costs, we won’t be able to complete the Content Production Services.
You are responsible for giving us any User Content we need to complete the Content Production Services. We have certain stock images, animations, video footage, graphics, and other artistic content in our existing stock library (the “Stock Media”), which we may supply at no additional charge. Custom content outside of our existing stock library may incur additional costs, which you will be responsible for.
If the performance of the Content Production Services requires access to premises owned or controlled by you, you shall maintain a comprehensive general liability insurance against injury to persons and damage to property in relation to such access.
If you purchase Educational Services, you will have access to those Educational Services through your user account on the Site during the term for which you purchased them. If any Educational Services are canceled or otherwise become unavailable during your subscription term, you will receive a pro rata refund based on the number of months for which you had access to the Educational Services before they were canceled or otherwise became unavailable.
While we make best efforts to provide a clear and specific description of the Services on the site, there are many factors, (including but not limited to remote locations, specific talent needs, travel, complexity of animation or motion graphics, etc.) that could impact the overall cost of the Services we provide to you. We will make best efforts to discuss and determine any such factors that might impact the cost of the Content Production Services after you place your order and before beginning production to give you the opportunity to approve or decline any additional costs. If we determine at that time that we will not be able to provide your project at the rate quoted at the time of purchase, you may elect to cancel your project or decline recommended additional services.
If you purchase Content Production Services, you will have an audio and/or video call with a representative of CreatorUp to further discuss and agree upon project specifics such as project requirements and deadlines (a “Confirmation Call”). You will provide accurate information and acknowledge and agree that any changes you request to your project following the Confirmation Call may result in additional fees. If you purchase consulting Services in connection with any AI Services, such consulting Services are provided on an as-is and as-available basis. CreatorUp cannot and does not make any representations or undertake any obligations with respect to timeline, deliverables, or other requirements of your project,
WHAT THIS MEANS: We’ll perform the services you order. If you make any changes, the price may also change. There are some fees you might be responsible for, such as fees associated with actor fees, permits for shooting video, etc. If you want a third party’s art incorporated into your product, you’ll have to make sure you have the rights.
If you pay for our educational videos, you’ll have access to them for the term you paid for. If any of those videos are removed during the term you paid for, you’ll get a partial refund.
If we have to enter your property to film, you agree to maintain adequate insurance on that property.
You must pay all fees specified in any purchase of Services. Such fees will be billed in advance for each period and are non-refundable except as set forth in this Agreement. Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, there will be no refunds or credits for canceled or unused Services.
You agree to pay all charges incurred by users of your credit card, debit card, or other payment method used in connection with your purchase of Services at the prices in effect when such charges are incurred. You will pay any applicable taxes relating to any such purchase.
All prices listed, fees, charges and refunds are issued in USD. We make no guarantees as to the exchange rate between any currencies, or that the exchange rate will remain unchanged during any period. The cost of Services may increase or decrease over a given period depending on the currency you choose to pay with and the specific exchange rate at that time. If your purchased Services are subject to installment payments as set forth in this Agreement, each installment will be billed at the then current exchange rate, if applicable. Refunds are likewise issued in USD and are subject to exchange rate volatility. There will be no additional refunds or credits issued in consideration of current or eventual exchange rates. You are responsible for any currency exchange taxes, fees, or other costs that may incur by making a purchase of our Services.
Any recurring subscription is charged at the time of purchase, and will recur in accordance with the applicable subscription terms. We will notify you 30 days prior to any price increases. After such 30 day notice, any recurring subscriptions will be subject to the increased price. If the Content Production Services you purchase total USD 5,000 or less, you will be billed all fees upon completing your purchase. If the Content Production Services you purchase total over USD 5,000, the Services will be subject to the standard billing procedures. For more information about our billing procedures, speak with a CreatorUp representative.
Educational Services may not be subject to installment billing and all Fees associated with Educational Services are payable upon completing your order.
Third party financing may be available to you through one of our affiliates, as indicated on the Site during the purchase process. You agree to comply with all terms and conditions designated by such third party for any financing you acquire in connection with your payment for the Services. However, you acknowledge and agree that CreatorUp will have no liability arising from any claim or cause of action arising from your use of such third-party financing services.
Permits required by local jurisdictions based on video shooting location are not included in pricing, as costs vary widely depending on local ordinances. Your producer will discuss permit needs during the production planning process and you agree to pay the associated fees. Additional fees you may incur include, but are not limited to, nonrefundable deposits, cancellation fees, compensation to actors, artists and other service providers, permit fees, lot fees, and other fees or penalties we incur on your behalf (collectively, “Third Party Fees”). We will use reasonable efforts to inform you of any Third Party Fees before incurring them. You agree to pay any Third Party Fees that result from your adjustment or cancellation of the Content Production Services being supplied to you, even if they exceed the previously agreed fees for the Content Production Services.
Either you or we can cancel any Content Production Services you have ordered within three days (unless you have requested us to commence the Content Production Services sooner) after a Confirmation Call and you will receive a full refund of any fees already paid. Refunds must be requested in writing via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unless specified, coupons are for one time use only per person, and for new customers only. Sales tax or delivery charges do not apply for a discount. Codes are not redeemable for cash. Codes are not valid for past purchases. Codes are non-transferrable and cannot not be combined with any other savings, discounts, offers or promotions.

Terms Related to Installment Payments
These terms are applicable to Services that are subject to milestones and installment payments. They are a supplement to CreatorUp’s Terms of Service located at https://creatorup.com/terms-conditions/ which are incorporated herein by reference.
Services that are subject to installment payments under the Agreement will be paid by you in accordance with the due dates, milestone descriptions, and payment amounts set forth in your Purchase Confirmation. We will complete each milestone on or before the due date specified in the purchase order; provided, however, that if we are not able to meet a milestone, we will notify you at least one week before the due date so you and CreatorUp can agree on additional time needed to complete the milestone.
If we complete any milestone on or before the indicated due date, we will automatically bill you within 5 business days on or after the due date with the information you provided when purchasing the Services.
If you dispute in good faith the completion of any milestone on or before the applicable due date, you and CreatorUp will negotiate in good faith for a period of 30 days regarding the completion of such milestone and its payment, during which we will try to resolve your concerns. If there is no resolution after the 30 day period, then either you or CreatorUp may terminate the Services and we will not complete any upcoming milestones. No refunds will be issued for any portion of the Services already provided and for which we have already billed you. With respect to the disputed milestone, if you and CreatorUp are not able to come to an agreement on what fees are payable, then either you or we may commence arbitration as set forth in our Terms of Service.
