GENERAL RULES AND VALUES
Join our mission for healthy and mindful social media. Creators should be intentional, transparent and mindful when creating content through any EVOLV MGMT and Brand partnerships. We ask that Creators limit the use of filters and apps that alter or enhance facial or beauty features which promote unhealthy and unrealistic beauty standards.
If you as a Creator do not genuinely care about and align with a Brand, please do not agree to a partnership with them to promote their items or products. Our goal is to facilitate meaningful and mindful partnerships which align with both the Brand, Creator and their audiences.
With every partnership we aim to make as little impact on our planet as possible. All packaging should be eco-friendly or of sustainable materials. Use less packaging materials to reduce waste if possible. Use bio-degradable packaging materials or recycled shipping materials (boxes, fillers and shipping labels), if available. Also, if available, we recommend shipping through Carbon Neutral Delivery.
It is our belief at EVOLV MGMT that every brand and creator partnership or campaign should be transparent and put consumers first. Creators and Brands are responsible for ensuring that no campaigns are false or misleading in any way. In every campaign and influencer post it must be disclosed that the Creator is being Paid by the Brand. EVOLV MGMT expect that all involved comply with applicable laws and industry self-regulation relating to influencer marketing, including the Federal Trade Commission’s Guides Concerning Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising (USA), AANA Guidelines (AU) and CAP Code (UK).
This means that all influencer marketing posts which are facilitated through EVOLV MGMT should be transparent and labeled with appropriate disclosures, such as #ad.
