Other items that may be included are, but are not limited to, reporting requirements, any special Ad delivery scheduling and/or Ad placement requirements, and specifications concerning ownership of data collected.
Acceptance. Acceptance of the IO (if any) and these T&C for Publisher will be deemed the earlier of (i) written (which, unless otherwise specified, for purposes of these T&C for Publisher, will include paper, fax, or e-mail communication) approval of the IO by Publisher, or (ii) the display of the first Ad impression by Publisher, unless otherwise agreed on the IO (if any). Notwithstanding the foregoing, modifications to the originally submitted IO (if any) will not be binding unless approved in writing by Publisher.

Restrictions. Publisher will not be required to publish any Ad that is not in accordance with its policies, restrictions (as set forth in this T&C for Publisher), or specifications as determined in its sole discretion. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Publisher’s policies, specifications, and/or recommendations with respect to Ads should not be construed as legal advice or as sufficient guidelines to ensure that such Ads comply with applicable law, and Bidmatic shall be solely responsible for the content of its Ads. Publisher undertakes that Ads shall not be placed on the Publisher Properties containing any materials or content which violates intellectual property rights of any third parties. Bidmatic undertakes that all Ads used will not include or promote illegal content (such as but not limited to: adult/pornography, gambling, extreme/graphic/explicit violence, profanity, hate, illegal narcotics, content which infringes upon third party rights) and will not include spyware/malware/warez.
Any methods and or means, direct or indirect, intentional, accidental, incidental, that artificially and/or fraudulently inflate the volume of impressions is strictly forbidden. Additionally, Bidmatic may withhold amounts relating to the Collected Revenue indicated herein, if Bidmatic, in its sole reasonable discretion, believes the performance related to them is fraudulent or invalid; or may withhold or recover mentioned amounts from Publisher if Bidmatic was charged or credited back in their respect by any Demand Partners. Payment amounts displayed in Bidmatic’s reporting systems may be adjusted at any time and may not reflect the final payment to Publisher as per adjustments made hereunder.
Publisher or its affiliates will not distribute Ads under these T&C for Publisher on any following Publisher Properties:
- which contain material that infringes the rights of others (including but not limited to copyright and other intellectual property rights) or which promotes copyright piracy (i.e., unauthorized MP3s, ‘warez’, emulators, or cracks, etc.);
- with pornography, adult content, sexual or erotic material, or websites that contain links to such content;
- with gratuitous displays of violence, obscene or vulgar language, and abusive content or content which endorses or threatens physical harm;

- that in any way violate any applicable local, national, or international law or regulation of any applicable jurisdiction.
At any time, Bidmatic may investigate any Publisher’s Properties for violation of these T&C for Publisher. If Bidmatic determines that the Publisher’s Properties include any undesirable content, Bidmatic may discontinue the Ad campaign upon notice, and Publisher shall immediately cease delivering Ads on such Publisher Properties. In no event will Bidmatic or its Demand Partners be obligated to pay for Ads served through Publisher Properties containing undesirable content after the Publisher’s receipt of such notice from Bidmatic.
3. PAYMENT AND PAYMENT LIABILITY
Within the period specified in the IO, Bidmatic will pay Collected Revenue in accordance with the provisions of the IO during the applicable calendar month.
Publisher acknowledges that Bidmatic operates as an Ad exchange and is therefore reliant on payment by the Demand Partners to Bidmatic before Bidmatic will pay Publisher. Accordingly, payment for each Bidmatic Ad Marketplace Ad impression served on Publisher Properties is strictly subject to and conditional upon the payment of Ad Collected Revenue for the same Ad impression by the relevant Demand Partners. In the event that Bidmatic receives partial payment of the Ad Collected Revenue, Bidmatic will make corresponding Collected Revenue payment to Publisher only within the collected part.
Publisher understands and agrees that Bidmatic acts solely as an agent for Demand Partners; and that Bidmatic shall only be liable to Publisher for Collected Revenue based on payments from Demand Partners, which have been received without restrictions. Bidmatic agrees to make every reasonable effort to bill, collect, and clear payment from the Demand Partners on a timely basis. Bidmatic reserves the absolute right not to make any payments if the Publisher violates any of the terms of these T&C for Publisher.
All amounts under each IO and T&C for Publisher will be invoiced in U.S. dollars and paid by wire transfer to an account to be designated by Publisher in the invoice unless otherwise agreed in writing by the parties hereto.
All amounts under each IO and T&C for Publisher will be invoiced in U.S. dollars and paid by wire transfer to an account to be designated by Publisher in the invoice unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Parties hereto. The minimum payment threshold is $100 (one hundred). All the amounts lower $1000 (one thousand) are processed through Paypal, and any sum exceeding $1000 (one thousand) is processed through a Wire transfer. Bidmatic doesn’t cover transfer expenses. Any amount lower than $100 will be rolled over to the next month.
Bidmatic assumes no responsibility for paying income taxes on behalf of the Publisher. The Publisher assumes complete and sole responsibility for any taxes owed or which may be due in connection with Publisher’s activities under the IO and T&C for Publisher, including but not limited to sales and use taxes, goods and services taxes, value-added taxes, and withholding taxes, and agree to indemnify and hold Bidmatic and its employees, affiliates, and representatives harmless from any such taxes Bidmatic shall provide the Publisher with appropriate tax information, including earnings on Form 1099. The Publishers residing in the United States agree to provide their Social Security number or Federal Employee Identification Number to Bidmatic for tax reporting purposes. In no event will payments be made on accounts that have not provided proper tax identification information including but not limited to Form W-8BEN or Form W-9. Such information will be used for no purpose other than for tax reporting purposes. International Publishers may be asked to complete appropriate forms for tax purposes.
Publisher will, within two (2) business days of the start date on the IO, provide confirmation to Bidmatic, either electronically or in writing, stating whether the components of the IO have begun delivery.
Bidmatic shall have the sole responsibility for the calculation of statistics (reporting). Publisher acknowledges that statistics provided by Bidmatic are the definitive and binding measurements of Publisher’s performance on any obligations provided in these T&C for Publisher, and no other measurements or usage statistics shall be accepted by Publisher or have a bearing on these T&C for Publisher.
Bidmatic will provide Publisher with access to reporting within 48 hours, depending on the type of Ads, to enable the Publisher to view the estimated revenues and impressions due to it under a given the T&C for Publisher.
Final revenue & impression count numbers (statistics) will be determined and adjudicated using the Bidmatic ‘s reporting system within ten (10) days after the end of the reporting month.
5. CANCELLATION AND TERMINATION
Subject to the early termination rights of either Party herein, the term of the IO and these T&C for Publisher shall be two (2) years from the date of the respective IO; and it shall renew automatically for subsequent two-year periods unless either Party notifies the other at least 30 (thirty) days before the end of the expiration date of the IO and these T&C, that it does not wish to renew the T&C.
The Parties hereby agree that any Party may terminate the IO and these T&C for Publisher at any time, with or without cause and without any liability to the other Party whatsoever by giving 24 hours prior written notice of termination to the other Party.
In the event that the IO and these T&C for Publisher is validly terminated as provided herein, then the Parties shall be relieved of their duties and obligations arising under the IO and these T&C for Publisher after the date of such termination and such termination shall be without liability to the Parties; provided, further, however, that Publisher has an outstanding account balance, Bidmatic will pay Publisher all legitimate money due during the next billing cycle and nothing in this paragraph shall relieve the Parties of any liability for a breach of the the IO and these T&C for Publisher.
Either Publisher or Bidmatic may terminate the IO and these T&C for Publisher at any time if the other party is in material breach of its obligations hereunder, which breach is not cured within 10 (ten) days after receipt of written notice thereof from the non-breaching party, except as otherwise stated in these T&C for Publisher with regard to specific breaches.
6. FORCE MAJEURE
Generally. Excluding payment obligations, neither Bidmatic nor Publisher will be liable for delay or default in the performance of its respective obligations under these T&C for Publisher if such delay or default is caused by conditions beyond its reasonable control, including, but not limited to, fire, flood, accident, earthquakes, telecommunications line failures, electrical outages, network failures, acts of God, or labor disputes (“Force Majeure event”). If the Publisher suffers such a delay or default, the Publisher will make reasonable efforts within five (5) business days to recommend a substitute transmission for the Ad or time period for the transmission. If no such substitute time period or makegood is reasonably acceptable to Bidmatic, Publisher will allow Bidmatic a pro rata reduction in the space, time, and/or program charges hereunder in the amount of money assigned to the space, time, and/or program charges at time of purchase. In addition, Bidmatic will have the benefit of the same discounts that would have been earned had there been no default or delay.
Related to Payment. If Bidmatic’s ability to transfer funds to third parties has been materially negatively impacted by an event beyond the Bidmatic’s reasonable control, including, but not limited to, failure of banking clearing systems or a state of emergency, then Bidmatic will make every reasonable effort to make payments on a timely basis to Publisher, but any delays caused by such condition will be excused for the duration of such condition. Subject to the foregoing, such excuse for delay will not in any way relieve Bidmatic from any of its obligations as to the amount of money that would have been due and paid without such condition.
Cancellation. If a Force Majeure event has continued for five (5) business days, Publisher and/or Bidmatic has the right to cancel the remainder of the IO without penalty.
7. AD MATERIALS
Submission. Bidmatic will submit Advertising Materials pursuant to Chapter 2 (Technical Specifications) in accordance with Publisher’s then-existing Policies. Publisher’s sole remedies for a breach of this provision are set forth in Chapter 7 (Damaged Creative), below, and Chapter 9, below.
Damaged Creative. If Advertising Materials provided by Bidmatic are damaged, not to Publisher’s specifications, or otherwise unacceptable, Publisher will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify Bidmatic within two (2) business days of its receipt of such Advertising Materials.
No Modification. Publisher will not edit or modify the submitted Ads in any way, including, but not limited to, resizing the Ad, without Bidmatic’s approval. Publisher will use all Ads in strict compliance with these T&C for Publisher and any written instructions provided on the IO.
Ad Tags. When applicable, Third Party Ad Server tags will be implemented so that they are functional in all aspects.
Trademark Usage. Publisher, on the one hand, and Bidmatic, on the other, will not use the other’s trade name, trademarks, logos, or Ads in any public announcement (including, but not limited to, in any press release) regarding the existence or content of these T&C for Publisher or an IO without the other’s prior written approval.
By Publisher. Publisher will defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Bidmatic, and each of its Affiliates and Representatives from damages, liabilities, costs, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) (collectively, “Losses”) resulting from any claim, judgment, or proceeding (collectively, “Claims”) brought by a Third Party and resulting from (i) Publisher’s alleged breach of Chapter 10 or of Publisher’s representations and warranties in Chapter 12 (Necessary Rights), (ii) Publisher’s display or delivery of any Ad in breach of Chapter 2 (Compliance with IO) or Chapter 7 (Trademark Usage), or (iii) Advertising Materials provided by Publisher for an Ad (and not by Bidmatic, and/or each of its Affiliates and/or Representatives) (“Publisher Advertising Materials”) that: (A) violate any applicable law, regulation, judicial or administrative action, or the right of a Third Party; or (B) are defamatory or obscene. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Publisher will not be liable for any Losses resulting from Claims to the extent that such Claims result from (1) Publisher`s customization of Ads or Advertising Materials based upon detailed specifications, materials, or information provided by Bidmatic and/or each of its Affiliates and/or Representatives, or (2) a user viewing an Ad outside of the targeting set forth on the IO, which viewing is not directly attributable to Publisher’s serving such Ad in breach of such targeting.
Procedure. The indemnified party(s) will promptly notify the indemnifying party of all Claims of which it becomes aware (provided that a failure or delay in providing such notice will not relieve the indemnifying party’s obligations except to the extent such party is prejudiced by such failure or delay), and will: (i) provide reasonable cooperation to the indemnifying party at the indemnifying party’s expense in connection with the defense or settlement of all Claims; and (ii) be entitled to participate at its own expense in the defense of all Claims. The indemnified party(s) agrees that the indemnifying party will have sole and exclusive control over the defense and settlement of all Claims; provided, however, the indemnifying party will not acquiesce to any judgment or enter into any settlement, either of which imposes any obligation or liability on an indemnified party(s) without its prior written consent.
9. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
Excluding Bidmatic’s, and Publisher’s respective obligations under Chapter 8, damages that result from a breach of Chapter 10, or intentional misconduct by Bidmatic, or Publisher, in no event, will any party be liable for any consequential, indirect, incidental, punitive, special, or exemplary damages whatsoever, including, but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, business interruption, loss of information, and the like, incurred by another party arising out of an IO, even if such party has been advised of the possibility of such damages.
10. NON-DISCLOSURE, DATA USAGE AND OWNERSHIP, PRIVACY AND LAWS
Definitions and Obligations. “Confidential Information” will include (i) all information marked as “Confidential,” “Proprietary,” or similar legend by the disclosing party (“Discloser”) when given to the receiving party (“Recipient”); and (ii) information and data provided by the Discloser, which under the circumstances surrounding the disclosure should be reasonably deemed confidential or proprietary. Without limiting the foregoing, Discloser and Recipient agree that each Discloser’s contribution to IO Details (as defined below) shall be considered such Discloser’s Confidential Information. Recipient will protect Confidential Information in the same manner that it protects its own information of a similar nature, but in no event with less than reasonable care. Recipient shall not disclose Confidential Information to anyone except an employee, agent, Affiliate, or third party who has a need to know same, and who is bound by confidentiality and non-use obligations at least as protective of Confidential Information as are those in this section. Recipient will not use Discloser’s Confidential Information other than as provided for on the IO.
Exceptions. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, the term “Confidential Information” will not include information which: (i) was previously known to Recipient; (ii) was or becomes generally available to the public through no fault of Recipient; (iii) was rightfully in Recipient’s possession free of any obligation of confidentiality at, or prior to, the time it was communicated to Recipient by Discloser; (iv) was developed by employees or agents of Recipient independently of, and without reference to, Confidential Information; or (v) was communicated by Discloser to an unaffiliated third party free of any obligation of confidentiality. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Recipient may disclose Confidential Information of the Discloser in response to a valid order by a court or other governmental body, as otherwise required by law or the rules of any applicable securities exchange, or as necessary to establish the rights of either party under these T&C for Publisher; provided, however, that both Discloser and Recipient will stipulate to any orders necessary to protect such information from public disclosure.
Use of Collected Data. Unless otherwise authorized by Publisher, Bidmatic will not: (A) use Collected Data for Repurposing; provided, however, that Performance Data may be used for Repurposing so long as it is not joined with any IO Details or Site Data; (B) disclose IO Details of Publisher or Site Data to any Affiliate or Third Party except as set forth in paragraph 3 of this subchapter about Transferring Party.
Unless otherwise authorized by Bidmatic, Publisher will not: (A) use or disclose IO Details of Bidmatic, Performance Data, or a user’s recorded view or click of an Ad, each of the foregoing on a non-Aggregated basis, for Repurposing or any purpose other than performing under the IO, compensating data providers in a way that precludes identification of the Advertiser, or internal reporting or internal analysis; or (B) use or disclose any End User Personal Data in any manner other than in performing under the IO.
Bidmatic and Publisher (each a “Transferring Party”) will require any Third Party or Affiliate used by the Transferring Party in performance of the IO on behalf of such Transferring Party to be bound by confidentiality and non-use obligations at least as restrictive as those on the Transferring Party, unless otherwise set forth in the IO.
Compliance with Law. Bidmatic will not use Collected Data unless it is permitted to use, nor use Collected Data in ways that are not allowed to use such Collected Data. Notwithstanding the foregoing or anything to the contrary herein, the restrictions shall not prohibit Bidmatic from using Collected Data on an aggregated basis for internal media planning purposes only (but not for Repurposing), or disclosing qualitative evaluations of aggregated Collected Data to its clients and potential clients, and Publisher on behalf of such clients or potential clients, for the purpose of media planning. Publisher undertakes to fulfill the provisions of the Data Processing Addendum for Publishers incorporated herein by reference as an integral part hereof.
11. THIRD PARTY AD SERVING AND TRACKING (Applicable if Third Party Ad Server is used)
Ad Serving and Tracking. Publisher will track delivery through its ad server and, provided that Publisher has approved in writing a Third Party Ad Server to run on its properties, Bidmatic will track delivery through such Third Party Ad Server.
Controlling Measurement. If both parties are tracking delivery, the measurement used for invoicing advertising fees under an IO (“Controlling Measurement”) will be determined as follows:
- (a) Except as specified in this Chapter 11 (Controlling Measurement (c), the Controlling Measurement will be taken from an ad server that is certified as compliant with the IAB/AAAA Ad Measurement Guidelines (the “IAB/AAAA Guidelines”).
- (b) If both ad servers are compliant with the IAB/AAAA Guidelines, the Controlling Measurement will be the Third Party Ad Server if such Third Party Ad Server provides an automated, daily reporting interface that allows for automated delivery of relevant and non-proprietary statistics to the Publisher in an electronic form that is approved by Publisher; provided, however, Publisher must receive access to such interface in the timeframe set forth in Chapter 11 (Ad Server Reporting Access) below.
- (c) If neither party’s ad server is compliant with the IAB/AAAA Guidelines or the requirements in the subparagraph, above, cannot be met, the Controlling Measurement will be based on Publisher’s ad server, unless otherwise agreed by Bidmatic and Publisher in writing.
Ad Server Reporting Access. As available, the party responsible for the Controlling Measurement will provide the other party with online or automated access to relevant and non-proprietary statistics from the ad server within one (1) day after the campaign launch. The other party will notify the party with Controlling Measurement if such party has not received such access. If such online or automated reporting is not available, the party responsible for the Controlling Measurement will provide placement-level activity reports to the other party in a timely manner, as mutually agreed to by the parties or as specified in Chapter 4, above, in the case of Ads being served by Publisher. If both parties have tracked the campaign from the beginning and the party responsible for the Controlling Measurement fails to provide such access or reports as described herein, then the other party may use or provide its ad server statistics as the basis of calculating campaign delivery for invoicing. Notification may be given that access, such as login credentials or automated reporting functionality integration, applies to all current and future IOs for one or more Advertisers, in which case new access for each IO is not necessary.
Reporting Measurement. If the difference between the Controlling Measurement and the other measurement exceeds 10% over the invoice period and the Controlling Measurement is lower, the parties will facilitate a reconciliation effort between Publisher and Third Party Ad Server measurements. If the discrepancy cannot be resolved and a good faith effort to facilitate the reconciliation has been made, Bidmatic reserves the right to either:
- Consider the discrepancy an under-delivery of the Deliverables whereupon the parties will act in accordance with that Section, including the requirement that Bidmatic and Publisher make an effort to agree upon the conditions of a makegood flight and delivery of any makegood will be measured by the Third Party Ad Server, or
- Pay invoice based on Controlling Measurement-reported data, plus a 10% upward adjustment to delivery.
Measurement Methodology. Publisher will make reasonable efforts to publish, and Bidmatic will make reasonable efforts to cause the Third Party Ad Server to publish, a disclosure in the form specified by the AAAA and IAB regarding their respective ad delivery measurement methodologies with regard to compliance with the IAB/AAAA Guidelines.
Third Party Ad Server Malfunction. Where Bidmatic is using a Third Party Ad Server and that Third Party Ad Server cannot serve the Ad, Bidmatic will have a one-time right to temporarily suspend delivery under the IO for a period of up to 72 hours. Upon written notification by Bidmatic of a non-functioning Third Party Ad Server, Publisher will have 24 hours to suspend delivery. Following that period, Bidmatic will not be held liable for payment for any Ad that runs within the immediately following 72-hour period until Publisher is notified that the Third Party Ad Server is able to serve Ads. After the 72-hour period passes and Bidmatic has not provided written notification that Publisher can resume delivery under the IO, Bidmatic will pay for the Ads that are run, after the 72-hour period but for the suspension, and can elect Publisher to serve Ads until the Third Party Ad Server is able to serve Ads.
Third Party Ad Server Fixed. Upon notification that the Third Party Ad Server is functioning, Publisher will have 72 hours to resume delivery. Any delay in the resumption of delivery beyond this period, without reasonable explanation, will result in Publisher owing a makegood to Bidmatic.
Necessary Rights. Publisher represents and warrants that Publisher has all necessary permits, licenses, and clearances to sell the Deliverables specified on the IO subject to these T&C for Publisher. Bidmatic represents and warrants that Bidmatic has all necessary licenses and clearances to use the content contained in the Ads and Advertising Materials as specified on the IO and subject to these T&C for Publisher, including any applicable Policies.
Assignment. Neither Bidmatic may resell, assign, or transfer any of its rights or obligations hereunder, and any attempt to resell, assign, or transfer such rights or obligations without Publisher’s prior written approval will be null and void. All terms and conditions in these T&C for Publisher and each IO will be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective permitted transferees, successors, and assigns.
Entire Agreement. Each IO (including the T&C for Publisher) will constitute the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter thereof and supersede all previous communications, representations, understandings, and agreements, either oral or written, between the parties with respect to the subject matter of the IO. The IO may be executed in counterparts, each of which will be an original, and all of which together will constitute one and the same document.
Conflicts; Governing Law; Amendment. In the event of any inconsistency between the terms of an IO and these T&C for Publisher, the terms of the IO will prevail. All IOs will be governed by the laws of the State of Delaware. Publisher and Bidmatic agree that any claims, legal proceedings, or litigation arising in connection with the IO (including these T&C for Publisher) will be brought solely in Delaware, and the parties consent to the jurisdiction of such courts. No modification of these T&C for Publisher will be binding unless in writing and signed by both parties. If any provision herein is held to be unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect. All rights and remedies hereunder are cumulative.
Notice. Any notice required to be delivered hereunder will be deemed delivered three days after deposit, postage paid, in U.S. mail, return receipt requested, one business day if sent by overnight courier service, and immediately if sent electronically or by fax. All notices to Publisher and Bidmatic will be sent to the contact as noted on the IO with a copy to the Legal Department.
Survival. Chapter 3, 4, 8, 9, 10, and 12 will survive the termination or expiration of these T&C for Publisher, and Chapter 4 will survive for 30 days after the termination or expiration of these T&C for Publisher. In addition, each party will promptly return or destroy the other party’s Confidential Information upon written request and remove Advertising Materials and Ad tags upon termination of these T&C for Publisher.
Headings. Chapters or paragraph headings used in these T&C for Publisher are for reference purposes only, and should not be used in the interpretation hereof.
