Following each Submission, you will have forty-eight (48) hours to accept or decline the Submitted track. If you decline to use the track, or if you do not respond within such time period, the Distribution Fee will be returned to the Artist and the process for that track ends. If you accept the Submission, you will be granted a licence to use the track in combination with your posts to Instagram and/or TikTok. As part of such licence, you must follow the instructions in the Creative Brief (if provided to you) to the extent practicable, in every post and in every other instance of use.

Once posted, you must send us a link to the posted track (following the instructions on the Site/App) to confirm your use. If you send us a verifiable link to your post of the track within the 7-day period and no issues are raised during the Review Process, the Distribution Fee (as listed on the Site/App from time to time) will be deposited into your Zebr account. No Distribution Fee will be paid unless (1) we receive a verifiable link to the track as posted by you to one of the permitted platforms and (2) the Review Process is completed without issues.
