The Intern is a full-time college student ambassador, social media influencer, content creator, YouTube personality, or owns and operates one or more websites that are accessible to the public (the “Intern Content”).
The Owner wishes to engage the Intern for the purpose of promoting its website www.vyten.com (the “Owner Website”) and the products and services available for purchase on the Owner Website (the “Owner Products”).
The Intern wishes to direct users of the Intern Content to the Owner Website using a unique URL (an “Intern Link”), and the parties want the Intern to receive compensation for purchases made by customers of the Intern who use the Intern Link (the “Intern Customers”) of certain applicable Owner products and services (the “Intern Program”).
