When NOCAP Sports is requested to discuss any deals between Users that are completed through NOCAP or disclosed through NOCAP, you agree that NOCAP can confirm that a deal occurred, which may include using an athlete’s name, image and/or likeness (“NIL”) to confirm the completed deal, unless an athlete specifically requests that NOCAP not do so by email to NOCAP at [email protected], which request NOCAP will honor after it has been received and verified by NOCAP. If the media or any other third party requests more information than whether a deal occurred, you agree that NOCAP may, but is not obligated to, direct the media or such other third party to contact the athlete and/or business involved if they want more information.

As customary in the influencer marketing industry, an Athlete may be compensated additional amounts above and beyond the agreed-upon compensation at the discretion of the Brand during and after a deal is completed as enhanced compensation for exceeding expectations related to the deal. For example, driving leads or sales through affiliate links, royalty payments based on sales, “rush fee” for completing tasks quickly, and other reasons that are solely related to the Athlete’s work.
- Deal Process. If an Athlete’s school activates their NOCAP account, then after an Athlete negotiates a deal with a Brand using NOCAP a description of the Proposed Deal is automatically sent to the school, where applicable, through the Website to review and either “Acknowledge Disclosure” or “Flag Disclosure.” Each Athlete and Brand hereby consents to the disclosure of any such Proposed Deal terms to the Athlete’s school as described herein. The school has up to seven days to acknowledge disclosure or flag disclosure of a Proposed Deal. If the school does not acknowledge disclosure or flag disclosure within seven days, the Athlete can proceed forward with the deal if they confirm (to NOCAP’s satisfaction) that their school received the deal disclosure.
After the school acknowledges disclosure, the Athlete is able to move forward to execute the deal. NOCAP Sports will process the payment from the Brand and save the disclosure form to the Athlete’s account and, if applicable, school’s accounts. As soon as the Athlete reports that they have completed the job duties associated with the deal and NOCAP receives full payment from the Brand, the funds will be distributed to the Athlete’s account.
If an Athlete’s school does not activate their NOCAP account, the athlete must confirm (to NOCAP’s satisfaction) that the Athlete disclosed the deal to their school as required by any school policy or applicable law.
If an Athlete’s school does not activate their NOCAP account but does want to receive information relevant to Proposed Deal disclosures, Users agree that if the school provides NOCAP with a secure email address then NOCAP may send the relevant Proposed Deal disclosure information to the school as an encrypted email attachment.
- Links from the Website. If the Website contains links to other sites and resources provided by third parties, these links are provided for your convenience only. NOCAP has no control over the contents of those sites or resources, and we accept no responsibility for them or for any loss or damage that may arise from your use of them. If you decide to access any of the third party websites linked to the Website, you do so entirely at your own risk and subject to the terms and conditions of use for such third party websites.
- Disputes. If any User has a dispute about a transaction or deal processed through the Website or otherwise involving NOCAP, the dispute must be handled externally between the Users and any other parties involved. All parties agree to act in good faith to try to promptly resolve the dispute. NOCAP Sports is not responsible for any disputes between Users or arising from deals processed on the Website, therefore, all such disputes must be handled externally without involving NOCAP, and each User agrees to indemnify NOCAP in connection with any such dispute as described in further detail in Section 19 (Indemnification”) below.
- Receiving Payouts. In order for a User to receive funds, Stripe (or the Website) makes payouts to your bank account. Therefore, you must have a bank account available to engage in such transactions to receive funds.
Payout availability depends on a number of factors such as the industry and country the User is operating in, and the risks involved. When a User starts processing live payments with Stripe, the User will not receive their first payout until approximately 7–14 days after receiving their first successful payment. The first payout usually takes longer in order to establish the Stripe account. Processing subsequent payouts then happens according to the account’s payout schedule.
When a payment is first received by NOCAP, it is initially reflected as a pending balance (less any Stripe fees) on the Website. This balance becomes available according to the User’s payout schedule. For instance, it takes 7 calendar days from a payment being received to it being paid out for Stripe accounts on a 7 calendar day schedule. Most banks deposit payouts into your bank account as soon as they receive them, though some may take a few extra days to make them available. NOCAP is not responsible for the acts or omissions of any third party, including any bank involved in processing payments in connection with the Website.
- Compliance with Laws. User agrees to comply with all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations related to the use of the Website. User further agrees that information provided by the User is truthful and accurate to the best of their knowledge.
