Creators on our Platform may choose to sell their Games and other content via the TinyTap Premium Revenue Sharing Program (“Revenue Sharing Program”). You may participate in the Revenue Sharing Program by clicking the button marked “Sell Your Game” and completing the sale form available on our mobile application and website “Game” page. By submitting your Game to our Revenue Sharing Program, you agree to these Terms (including but not limited to ownership, User Content, indemnification, any representations and warranties made by you, and limitation of liability). TinyTap has no obligation to accept any Game to the Revenue Sharing Program. Moreover, TinyTap reserves the right to remove any Game from the Revenue Sharing Program without notice and for any reason in its sole and absolute discretion.
TinyTap may elect, in its sole discretion, to enroll your Game in our Revenue Sharing Program. If you are not interested in participating in the Revenue Sharing Program, you may opt out on the “Account Settings” page of our website, available at TinyTap Premium Revshare program” here: https://www.tinytap.it/account/setting/ By agreeing to these Terms, you hereby consent to the registration of any Game you create or upload to our Platform, and which you have made publically available, to the Revenue Sharing Program.
Creators participating in our Revenue Sharing Program may earn a share of the subscription revenue we collect from users playing their Game(s). After deducting all fees paid to third-party platforms or partners and our own operational and marketing costs, each Creator receives his or her proportional share of the subscription payments collected from each user that consumed their Games (including premium games and premium creation packs) during a particular month. If a particular user did not consume a Creator’s Game in a particular month, such Creator will not earn any share of the subscription revenue collected from that user during such period.
In order to distribute a particular user’s subscription revenue between various Creators, we use a credit system: a Creator receives one credit when (i) the user starts a Game, (ii) the user completes the Game, and (iii) the user consumes a premium creation pack. The sum of the credits earned by a Creator during a particular month represents his or her proportion of the subscription revenue earned from a particular user.
