We define branded products as a creator or publisher’s products, services or content that features or is influenced by a business partner for an exchange of value, such as monetary payment. Creators must mention the featured third-party products, services or content, brand, or business partner with their prior permission. Creators cannot accept anything of value to post content that does not feature themselves or that they were not involved in creating.
