terms and conditions

Brand Reps Directory T&C’s

THESE ARE THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS BETWEEN LITTLE KIDS BUSINESS AND THE PARENTS/GUARDIANS OF BRAND REPS WISHING TO BE LISTED ON THE LITTLE KIDS BUSINESS MARKETPLACE

Thank you for your interest in applying to become a Brand Rep on the Little Kids Business Marketplace.

It is very important that you read and understand these terms and conditions before entering into an agreement with Little Kids Business Pty Ltd (Little Kids BusinessUs, or We).

Little Kids Business operates a website platform which facilitates sales of products for small businesses. When an order is placed through Little Kids Business, customers are placing an order with the Creator or Importer of the Product (the Creators or You) and not with Little Kids Business. When a Brand contacts you ( The Brand Rep ) as a direct result of  your Little Kids Business Brand Reps Listing,  this is now an independent conversation and agreement between You (The Brand Rep and the Brand) 

Little Kids Business facilitates the promotion of Brand Reps to the Brands who sell through the Little Kids Business Marketplace through the use of the Little Kids Business Marketplace and Little K’Mail an email newsletter, both operated and managed by Little Kids Business (the Services).

These terms and conditions apply between You and Little Kids Business in connection with the provisions of the Services by Us to You.

Terms and conditions will commence once Little Kids Business has received a completed Application form from (the Application) and we advise You of our acceptance in writing of the Application (Commencement).

It shall be at the absolute discretion of Little Kids Business to accept, approve or disprove an Application. In the case where we feel you are not the right fit for us, we are happy to give You a reason and We ask You to be polite, understanding and respectful.

When You accept an email from a Brand via the Little Kids Business Marketplace an agreement is formed between You and the Brand. This means that the Brand has rights directly and only against You and not against Little Kids Business.

LITTLE KIDS BUSINESS IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY CONTRACTS MADE BETWEEN THE BRANDS AND TE BRAND REPS

We encourage you to enter into a legally binding contract with the Brand/ Brand Rep 

BY AGREEING TO LIST ON THE BRAND REP DIRECTORY IT IS UNDERSTOOD THAT WE WILL NOT SHOW CHILDREN WHO ARE  

  • Not clothed, baring any nudity.
  • Displayed in a way that would enable them to be easily identified – for example, in a school uniform, directly outside their house with a number or street sign showing, or showing their full name. 

By applying to the Little Kids Business Brand Reps Directory you must be the Childs parental/guardian and give consent via a tick box. 

If we decline your application we ask that you politely accept our decision. Any feedback given will not pertain to the physical appearance of your child, merely the quality or style of the photography. 

WE WILL ONLY SHOWCASE PHOTOS ALREADY ON DISPLAY THROUGH YOUR PERSONAL INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT

You must have a Public Instagram account/profile with the photos which you wish to publish on the Little Kids Business Directory currently available to be seen by the public on your Instagram account/profile. If at any time these photos are removed, you must immediately notify Little Kids Business. 

If at any time your Instagram account is closed you must also notify Little Kids Business and we reserve the right to remove your Brand Rep Directory listing.  

WE ARE COMMITTED TO CHILD SAFETY 

In our Statement of Commitment to Child Safety, Little Kids Business Management would like you to know that we have zero tolerance for child abuse and we actively work to listen to and empower children. We are committed to promoting cultural safety for Aboriginal children, cultural safety for children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, and do not discriminate against children with a disability.

There are laws that protect the identity (e.g., names and images) of children and young people involved in child protection, family court, or criminal proceedings and you must disclose if your child is in this situation and accept that we will decline your application. 

Little Kids Business Management chooses to represent only children aged between 3 Months and 14 years. If your child is not within this age group you must disclose the correct age of the child that you are a Parent/Guardian of whom you have registered to be seen in the Little Kids Business Directory.  

BY ENTERING THIS AGREEMENT YOU AGREE TO SHARE ONLY PHOTOS THAT YOU HAVE TAKEN OR HAVE THE RIGHT TO SHARE

As always, you own the content you post on the Little Kids Business Brand Reps Directory. Remember to post authentic content, and don’t post anything you’ve copied or collected from the Internet that you don’t have the right to post. Learn more about intellectual property rights.

Under some laws copyright in a photograph is the property of the person who presses the shutter on the camera — not the person who owns the camera, and not even the person in the photo, so if you did not take the photo that you wish to upload we ask that you seek permission from the person who took the photo. If you have any concerns as to whether you have permission to post a photo, please do not post it on the Little Kids Business Brand Rep Directory. If we are contacted by someone claiming to have taken a photo that is published, stating that we do not have permission to showcase this photo. The photo in question will immediately be removed from the Directory and the Parent/ Guardian of this listing will be contacted.

  • To establish and maintain access to the internet at their own cost, through the use of a computer and modem or another access device;
