These terms (the "Partner Program Terms") govern PIO NETWORKING PTE LTD’s ("PiO") partner program ("Partner Program"). Through PiO’s Partner Program, you can upload audio files and related photo, title, and description ("Content") to PiO Home App (the "Service") from your user account and receive revenue based on its PiO Points earned.
Please read the Partner Program Terms carefully. If you don’t understand them, or don’t accept any part of them, then you can’t participate in the Partner Program. Your online acceptance of PiO’s Terms form a binding agreement between you and PiO and show your intent to be bound by them.
Upload Content & Monetization
For each Content associated with your account, you have the chance to receive revenue based on PiO Points earned. Based on the earned PiO Points of a Content, PiO will pay you a portion of revenues received by PiO, as determined by PiO. PiO will send you payment for any revenues accrued during a given calendar month by sending payment after that month. PiO reserves the right to adjust at any time the factors by which revenue are determined.

If any of these occur, PiO will use reasonable efforts to notify you.
These Partner Terms are not legal advice. If you plan to upload and monetize a Content containing any content you did not create, you may want to talk to a lawyer first to ensure you own all rights required to do so.
PiO reserves the right to remove a Content at any time, which will end that Content’s ability to generate revenue. PiO reserves the right in its sole discretion to terminate your participation in the Partner Program at any time.
Account and Payout Method Requirement
In order to accrue or receive payment of any revenues under the Partner Program, you must, at all times, have an active PiO account and a payout method associated with it.
