We’re here to clean the ocean, rivers and coastlines while working to stop the inflow of plastic by changing consumption habits
Even though 4ocean has collected millions of pounds of trash from the ocean and built an international infrastructure to fight the ocean plastic crisis, we’re just getting started. The ocean plastic crisis is massive and growing.
It will take major systemic changes and the hard work of many great organizations each trying to tackle the crisis in different ways, as well as people like you who are committed to driving change.
Our work won't be done until we can walk along our beaches — in Bali, Florida, and around the world — and see nothing but warm sand and rolling waves.

4OCEAN BRAND AMBASSADOR PROGRAM AGREEMENT
IMPORTANT: THIS BRAND AMBASSADOR PROGRAM AGREEMENT CONTAINS A BINDING ARBITRATION CLAUSE AND WAIVER OF THE RIGHT TO JURY TRIALS AND CLASS ACTIONS.
PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE AGREEMENT CAREFULLY.
BY SUBMITTING AN APPLICATION TO THE BRAND AMBASSADOR PROGRAM, YOU ARE AGREEING THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT AND THAT YOU UNEQUIVOCALLY AGREE TO BE LEGALLY BOUND BY EACH AND EVERY TERM AND CONDITION.
This BRAND AMBASSADOR Program Agreement (the “Agreement”) is a legally binding contract between you (“Brand Ambassador”, “you”, or similar terms) and 4ocean Public Benefit Corporation (“4ocean”, “us”, “we”, or similar terms) and applies to your participation in the 4OCEAN BRAND AMBASSADOR Program (the “Program”). Any person or entity that participates or attempts to participate in the Program must accept this Agreement without change. By registering for the Program, you agree to this Agreement.
1. Description of the Program
The Program permits you to monetize your social media user-generated content by placing on your social media profiles (“Your Profiles”) a personalized Brand Ambassador coupon code (“Your Code"). When our customers purchase eligible goods from www.4ocean.com (the “4ocean Site”) using Your Code, you be eligible to receive a commission for “Qualifying Purchases”, as further described (and subject to the limitations in) Section 3 below.
We periodically modify the terms of this Agreement. We might also choose to replace these terms in their entirety if, for example, the Program changes, ends, or becomes part of another existing program. If you don’t agree to the modification or replacement, you will be able to terminate your participation in the Program. YOUR CONTINUED PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM FOLLOWING ANY CHANGES TO THIS AGREEMENT WILL CONSTITUTE YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THE MODIFICATIONS. IF ANY MODIFICATION IS UNACCEPTABLE TO YOU, YOUR ONLY RECOURSE IS TO TERMINATE YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM.
Nothing in this Agreement will create any partnership, joint venture, agency, franchise, sales representative, or employment relationship between you and us or our respective affiliates. You will have no authority to make or accept any offers or representations on our or our affiliates’ behalf. You are not authorized to use 4ocean copyrights or trademarks posting, other than to identify yourself as an Ambassador as authorized in this Agreement.
You will ensure that the information in your Program application and information otherwise associated, including your email address, mailing address, and other contact information, is at all times complete, accurate, and up-to-date. We may send notifications, approvals, and other communications relating to the Program and this Agreement to the email address then-currently associated with your Program account. You will be deemed to have received all notifications, approvals, and other communications sent to that email address, even if the email address associated with your account is no longer current.
You can update your information by emailing us at: [email protected]
2. Eligibility To Participate In The Program & Prohibited Activities
You must be at least 18 years of age. If you are the parent or legal guardian of a person under the age of 18 and wish to post content depicting the minor or allow the minor to post content on their social media accounts associated with your Ambassadorship, then you represent and warrant that you are the legal parent or guardian of the minor and have the consent of the minor to post their images or content, that you have read the terms of this Agreement that will govern any content posted depicting the minor or content on the minor’s social media, including the requirement for 500+ followers, and consent to the terms herein, and you will not revoke your consent.
You must have a public Instagram or other social media account with 500+ followers.
You must have a PayPal account.
You must comply with this Agreement to participate in the Program and to receive Commissions.
You must promptly provide us with any information that we request to verify your compliance with this Agreement.
You must clearly state the following, or any substantially similar statement (the “Disclosure”) on Your Profiles: “As a 4ocean Brand Ambassador, I earn from qualifying purchases.”
You must be kind and respectful to all other Brand Ambassadors.
Your Code is for you to post solely in Your Profiles, or to allow a minor of which you are the legal parent or guardian whose Profiles meet the requirements set forth herein. Participation in the Program does not grant you any rights to sell 4ocean items at events of any kind (e.g. farmer's markets, sporting events, beach cleanups…) unless you have received express written permission from us.
You must not comment with Your Code on any 4ocean social media posts or channels (i.e. Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, etc.), even if you see another Brand Ambassador doing it.
You must not post Your Code in the comments of any posts from 4ocean wholesale accounts or stores who carry our products.
You must not enter into any retail stores that sell 4ocean goods and share Your Code with customers.
DO NOT add Your Code to coupon sites, it’s cheating and a breach of this Agreement! We check these sites frequently.
Remember that the purpose of the Program is to bring new clients to the brand and help spread the Clean Ocean Movement. Together, we can end the ocean plastic crisis!
3. Commissions on Qualifying Purchases
We will pay you a commission with a base amount of no less than 10% of the price paid by the customer and actually received by 4ocean, before taxes and shipping, on all Qualifying Purchases (your “Commission”). A “Qualifying Purchase” occurs when (i) a customer uses Your Code to purchasing eligible goods from the 4ocean Site; and (ii) the customer’s payment is successfully processed.
For example, if a customer uses Your Code to purchase a single beaded bracelet priced at USD$20.00 and Your Code provides the customer with a 20% discount, then once 4ocean receives that customer’s payment of USD$16.00 ($20.00 less the 20% discount of $4.00), you will be eligible to receive a 10% commission in the amount of USD$1.60.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Qualifying Purchases are disqualified and no Commission shall be due whenever (a) they occur in connection with a violation of this Agreement, or any other terms, conditions, specifications, statements, and policies that we may issue from time to time that apply to the Program; (b) any purchases that occur after termination of your Agreement; (c) any order where a cancellation, return, or refund has been initiated; (d) any purchase by a customer who is referred to the 4ocean Site through any advertisement that you purchased through participation in bidding or auctions on keywords, search terms, or other identifiers that include the word “4ocean”, “4 ocean”, “40 ocean”, 40cean”, “4ocean Bracelets” or any other 4ocean trademark (or variations or misspellings of any of those words, (e) any purchase by a customer who is referred to the 4ocean Site by a link that is generated or displayed on a search engine (including Google, Yahoo, Bing, or any other search portal, sponsored advertising service, or other search or referral service, or any site that participates in such search engine’s network); (f) any purchase by a customer who is referred to the 4ocean Site by a link that sends users indirectly to the 4ocean Site via an intermediate site, without requiring the customer to click on a link or take some other affirmative action on that intermediate site; (f) any purchase by a customer, where such customer does not comply with the terms and conditions applicable to the 4ocean Site; or (g) any purchase that is not correctly tracked or reported because the Your Code is not properly formatted or inserted in the 4ocean Site’s checkout process.
We will use commercially reasonable efforts to accurately and comprehensively track Qualifying Purchases for the purposes of our internal tracking, creating and distributing your Commissions. We may hold accrued Commissions for a reasonable period of time following any termination of this Agreement to ensure that the correct amount is paid.
We will pay Commissions in United States Dollars via PayPal approximately 30 days following the end of each calendar month in which they were earned. You are solely responsible for any PayPal fees, and any and all taxes. We are not responsible for any Commissions that are not received by you due to any suspension or termination of your PayPal account.
Payments made to you, as reduced by all deductions or withholdings described in the Agreement, will constitute full payment and settlement to you of amounts payable under the Agreement.
If any excess payment has been made to you for any reason whatsoever, we reserve the right to adjust or offset the same against any subsequent fees payable to you under the Agreement or any other agreement between you and us.
We may deduct or withhold any taxes that we may be legally obligated to deduct or withhold from any amounts payable to you under this Agreement. From time to time, we may request tax information from you. If we request tax information from you and you do not provide it to us, we reserve the right (in addition to any other rights or remedies available to us) to hold any amounts otherwise payable to you in connection with the Program until the later of the time that (a) you provide this information, (b) satisfy us that you are not a person from whom we are required to obtain tax information, or (c) 30 days from date the information is requested.

You agree to not handle or address any contact with any of our customers, and, if contacted by any of our customers for a matter relating to interaction with 4ocean, you will state that those customers must follow contact directions on the 4ocean Site to address customer service issues.
You represent, warrant, and covenant that (a) you will participate in the Program in accordance with this Agreement, (b) your participation in the Program, including without limitation, your creation, maintenance, or operation of Your Profile(s) will not violate any applicable laws, ordinances, rules, regulations, orders, licenses, copyrights, trademarks, patents, permits, guidelines, codes of practice, industry standards, self-regulatory rules, judgments, decisions, or other requirements of any governmental authority that has jurisdiction over you (including all such rules governing communications, data protection, advertising, and marketing), (c) you are lawfully able to enter into contracts, (d) you have independently evaluated the desirability of participating in the Program and are not relying on any representation, guarantee, or statement other than as expressly set forth in this Agreement, (e) you will not participate in the Program if you are the subject of U.S. sanctions or of sanctions consistent with U.S. law imposed by the governments of the country where you are using the 4ocean Site; (f) you will comply with all U.S. export and re-export restrictions, and applicable non-US export and re-export restrictions consistent with U.S. law, that may apply to goods, software, technology and services, and (g) the information you provide in connection with the Program is accurate and complete at all times.
