Thought Leaders Consortium
Thought Leaders Consortium Terms
Effective February 1, 2022
The Thought Leaders Consortium Program Terms (the "Terms") govern the KnoWEwell, P.B.C. (referred to as “KnoWEwell,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) Thought Leaders Consortium Program (the “Program”). In these Terms, Program participants will be referred to as “you” or “your.”
Please read the Terms carefully. If you do not understand them or do not accept any part of them, then you cannot participate in the Program. Your online acceptance of the Terms forms a binding agreement between you and KnoWEwell and shows your intent to be bound by these Terms.
Through the Program, you will be identified as an expert in one of KnoWEwell’s topic-specific Groups ("Topic Groups") and have the opportunity to earn fees for engaging in defined activities within KnoWEwell's Regenerative Whole Health Hub.
To participate in the Program you are required to:
Be a practitioner member of KnoWEwell, maintain your membership in good standing, and abide by the Membership Terms and Conditions.
- Accept KnoWEwell's invitation to participate in the Program.
- Agree to these Terms for participating in the Program.
As a participant in the Program you may:
- Be identified as an expert in one of KnoWEwell’s Topic Groups.
- Submit your Content, including previously recorded educational webinars and videos, for evaluation and publishing by KnoWEwell.
- Participate in KnoWEwell-hosted educational webinars.
- Post responses, comments, and content in the KnoWEwell Hub.
Published Multi-media Content
For each piece of submitted Content associated with your account that is published by us, we will assign a point value each time the Content is read or viewed by members in the Hub through KnoWEwell's POWER SEARCH feature. KnoWEwell accepts educational Content of various types, including, but not limited to: articles, infographics, videos, podcasts, whitepapers, e-books, clinical studies, and webinars.
Content Selection and Publication
KnoWEwell's editorial team and peer-review advisors choose whether to publish the Content you submit. If a piece of your submitted Content is not published, you will not earn points or revenues from the Program for such Content. If your Content is not published, it shall be returned or destroyed by KnoWEwell. As with any published Content, once the Content has been published, it cannot be unpublished by KnoWEwell.
KnoWEwell reserves the right to edit your submissions, as necessary. Content requiring significant editing will likely be returned to you. KnoWEwell will use its best efforts to provide you with edits made if they are more than minor (e.g., spelling, punctuation, grammar, word choice).
Content that is laden with sales copy or blatant self-promotion disguised as an article will not be published. Content that is knowledge-heavy with some promotion may be identified by KnoWEwell, at its sole discretion, as "sponsored content" when published.
As appropriate, your Content should attribute all medical or health claims and scientific study results and cite credible, authoritative sources. Any list of additional resources in written content should be included as an endnote.
You may engage with KnoWEwell members from your membership account by:
- Posting comments in What's New, the live feed to the entire community, and/or a Topic Group's Live Feed.
- Responding to questions in the global Q&A Forum and/or a Topic Group's Q&A Forum.
- Commenting on another member’s post.
By engaging with members while logged into your KnoWEwell membership account, we will track each engagement activity and assign it a point value.
You will earn revenue each calendar month based on various performance factors, including net revenues received by KnoWEwell from membership fees, and the points earned based on reads/views of your Content through KnoWEwell's POWER SEARCH feature and community engagement from your account. We will send you payment for any revenues earned during a calendar month within 60 days of the end of that month. KnoWEwell reserves the right to adjust at any time the point value assigned to different Content and community engagement types and the factors by which published Content and community engagement performance and net revenue are determined. You must earn a minimum of $50 or more before your account is eligible for payment. Commission amounts earned for less than $50 will remain pending until the $50 minimum balance has been earned.
You may only submit Content for publishing by KnoWEwell if you have sufficient commercial rights to use it, including the text, video, image, and audio elements. KnoWEwell may require you to provide documentation proving you own sufficient rights.
The consequences of submitting Content when you lack the rights to do so or fail to provide adequate documentation upon request include the removal of the Content, withholding of earned fees owed you, suspension or termination of your participation as a Topic Group expert, suspension or termination of your participation in the Program, and/or suspension or termination of your KnoWEwell account.
You are not entitled to earn or receive any fees in connection with your participation in the Program in any of the following circumstances: (1) if one or more third parties claim rights to any element(s) of your Content, (2) if you violate the Terms, (3) if your participation in the Program is suspended or terminated, or (4) if your provider membership in KnoWEwell is terminated for any reason. If any of these occur, KnoWEwell will make reasonable efforts to notify you.
These Terms are not legal advice. If you plan to submit and monetize Content containing any content you did not create, you may want to talk to a lawyer first to ensure you own all rights required to do so.
For additional terms, conditions, and requirements for submitting and publishing Content with KnoWEwell, see the membership Terms and Conditions.
Publishing your Content with KnoWEwell does not limit your ability to publish such content elsewhere.
KnoWEwell reserves the right to remove Content and posts at any time. Content and posts that have been removed will cease to generate points and revenues for you upon their removal. KnoWEwell reserves the right in its sole discretion to terminate your participation in the Program at any time.
You may terminate your participation in the Program at any time by notifying us by email at WorldChangingLeaders@KnoWEwell.com.
Account and Payout Method Requirement
To accrue or receive payment of any fees under the Program, you must, at all times, have an active KnoWEwell membership account and a Form W-9 on file with a valid mailing address. KnoWEwell does not owe you for any fees that may be associated with your Content or community engagement during any period in which you do not have a valid membership account or W-9 on file.
Changes or Discontinuation of the Program
KnoWEwell reserves the right to modify, suspend, or discontinue the Program with or without notice to you. KnoWEwell will not be liable to you or any third party for any such modification, suspension, or termination. KnoWEwell may change the Terms from time to time, so we encourage you to periodically review this page and other referenced pages for the most up-to-date version. If you refuse to accept the updated Terms, then KnoWEwell reserves its right to suspend or terminate your participation in the Program.
By using the Program, you consent to receive communications from us related to it, including marketing communications such as newsletters, special offers, promotional announcements, and customer surveys to your registered email address or through other methods.
If required by law, you are responsible for reporting and paying any applicable taxes in connection with your participation in the Program. Such taxes may include duties, customs fees, or other taxes (other than income tax), along with any related penalties or interest. You will be required to complete and submit a Form W-9 in connection with the Program.
Governing Law and Forum
The governing law, mandatory forum, and dispute resolution provisions of KnoWEwell’s membership Terms and Conditions also apply to the Program and any dispute arising under them.
You participate in the Program at your own risk. You agree that you are solely responsible for your actions in connection with the Program, any breach of your obligations under the Terms, and for the consequences of any such breach.
Any capitalized terms used but not defined herein have the meanings given to them in the Membership Terms and Conditions.
