- Influencers shall strive to resolve business issues, including situations with their organization’s Influencer, with tact, sensitivity, and good will; and taking care not to create additional problems.
- Influencers must be honest, responsible, professional and conduct themselves with integrity.
SocialGlobe may take appropriate action against an Influencer if it determines, in its sole discretion, that an Influencer’s conduct is detrimental, disruptive, or injurious to SocialGlobe or to other Influencers.
