Employees who are brand facing and/or directly impact influencer selection, briefing, or content review are not eligible.
TESTIMONIALS: While Applicants are encouraged to ask their followers to provide testimonials on their behalf, and the sentiments and information provided in the testimonials will be taken into consideration when the Application is being reviewed, testimonials are not required. Any testimonials provided by an Applicant’s followers should be true and reflect the actual beliefs and experience of the follower providing the testimonial. The Application and any corresponding testimonials are collectively referred to herein as “Program Materials.”

All rights, title, and interest in the Sephora Materials (including Sephora’s name, logo, and any other trademarks, but excluding the Applicant Content) are owned by Sephora. Sephora is providing the Applicant with a limited license to use the Sephora Materials solely in connection with promoting the Applicant’s participation in this Program. The Sephora Materials should not be used for any other purpose. Sephora reserves the right to disqualify any Applicant who violates this grant of rights.
Applicants agree and hereby warrant that they shall, as appropriate, disclose in all postings or uploads (including video posts / uploads) on internet or social media accounts owned or controlled by Applicant the fact that Applicant is posting for an opportunity to become a Sephora Squad member; and such disclosures must comply with any applicable instructions or directions provided by Sephora or Fohr.

APPLICANT SCREENING AND SELECTION PROCESS: All Program Materials will be reviewed by Sephora. Potential Sephora Squad members, if any, will be contacted by email or telephone using the contact information provided as part of the Application and will be required to execute and return an Influencer Agreement within a time period specified by Sephora. If such all required documents are not returned within the specified time period, or a potential Sephora Squad member cannot be contacted within a reasonable time period or is not in compliance with these Application Terms, such potential Sephora Squad member will be disqualified. Sephora Squad members who are selected, retained, and/or who execute an Influencer Agreement with Sephora as a result of this Program will not be considered employees of Sephora, unless an employment relationship was already in place.
