Advertising Terms & Conditions
By placing an Insertion Order for advertising on a Web site or in an email of FOREXSTREET S.L. or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates (collectively, "FOREXSTREET S.L."), Advertiser ("Advertiser" or its agency as the "Signing Party") agrees to the following terms and conditions with respect to such advertising (collectively, "Terms").
1. Insertion Order; Optimization; Ad Servers. FOREXSTREET S.L. agrees to deliver, and Advertiser agrees to pay for, the services on the applicable Insertion Order ("IO") which IO is incorporated herein by this reference (collectively, "Services"), according to rates specified on the IO and subject to these Terms. VAT, if applicable, is not included in such rates and will be, if necessary, invoiced in addition, at the rate in force. Subject to available inventory and appropriate rate adjustment, positions on the IO may be adjusted ("optimized"); provided that Advertiser's total financial obligations under the IO are not reduced ("Optimization"). Optimizations are subject to FOREXSTREET S.L.' prior approval, with applicable terms documented via email, and Advertiser's confirmation of acceptance via reply email, and such terms shall be binding on Advertiser and made part of the IO as though fully set forth therein. FOREXSTREET S.L. uses their own ad server for its ad serving and reporting functions, which ad servers may vary depending on its Web site and are subject to change in FOREXSTREET S.L.' discretion, and such applicable ad server(s) shall be the official counter(s) for determining impressions delivered, invoices and payment. Advertiser's and/or its agency's third party ad server reporting is not accepted.
2. Cancellation. Advertiser may cancel the IO with thirty (30) days' prior written notice ("Notice Period"); provided that Advertiser shall be financially responsible for impressions delivered and scheduled to run up to and through the end of the Notice Period and any volume discounts shall be reversed and Advertiser will be invoiced based on actual volume run according to FOREXSTREET S.L.' rate card in effect when the IO was placed. Cancellation notices must be sent via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and will be deemed given upon FOREXSTREET S.L.' confirmation of receipt.
3. Ad Materials; Late Creative. Artwork, copy, other content, active URLs and other components of the advertisement (collectively, "Ad Materials") must comply with FOREXSTREET S.L.' criteria and specifications of the Advertising Rate Card (collectively, "ARC") in efect at the moment of signing the IO for its applicable Web site(s) (collectively, the "Policies"), as updated from time-to-time in FOREXSTREET S.L.' discretion. Ad Materials must be received at least three (3) business days prior to the scheduled start date or within the timeframe in the Policies for the applicable ad type if such timeframe is greater. If Ad Materials are not received within such timeframe, or if provided incorrectly or inconsistent with the Policies, then guaranteed impressions and FOREXSTREET S.L.' obligations will be reduced pro-rata for the period of time that reserved space was not filled without affecting Advertiser's financial responsibility for all impressions ordered and inventory reserved.
4. Editorial Approval. All Ad Materials are subject to FOREXSTREET S.L.' approval. FOREXSTREET S.L. reserves the right, at any time and for any reason in its discretion, to reject, cancel or cease publication of any Ad Materials, space reservation, or position commitment, without any liability for the same except as provided below for makegoods.
5. Makegoods. If actual inventory delivered with respect to a particular advertisement placement falls below guaranteed levels on the IO according to FOREXSTREET S.L.' applicable ad server counts, and/or if there is an omission of any advertisement (placement or creative unit), Advertiser and FOREXSTREET S.L. will make an effort to agree upon the conditions of a makegood at the time of shortfall. If no makegood can be agreed upon, Advertiser may execute a credit equal to the value of the underdelivered portion of the IO for which it was invoiced. In the event Advertiser made a cash pre-payment to FOREXSTREET S.L. specifically for the IO for which under-delivery applies, then if Advertiser is current on all amounts owed to FOREXSTREET S.L. under any other advertising agreement, Advertiser may elect to receive a refund for the under-delivery equal to the difference between the applicable pre-payment and the value of the delivered portion of the IO. Makegoods are not available (a) when under-delivery or omission of an advertisement is attributable to Advertiser's (i) delayed, incorrect or incompatible Ad Materials or (ii) failure to follow applicable Policies, (b) for failure to deliver impressions according to any specific daily or weekly distribution, (c) for impressions marked on the IO as "estimated" or "not guaranteed", (d) for sponsorship, exclusive or similar placements, or (e) for preemptive placements and/or impressions. This section sets forth the sole and exclusive remedy for any failure of FOREXSTREET S.L. to fulfill its obligations under the IO.
6. Payment Terms. If FOREXSTREET S.L. approves credit, Advertiser will be invoiced at the end of each month for amounts on the IO and payment shall be made to FOREXSTREET S.L. within ten (10) days from the date of invoice ("Due Date"). If Advertiser fails to make timely payment, Advertiser will be responsible for all reasonable expenses (including attorneys' fees) incurred by FOREXSTREET S.L. in collecting such amounts. FOREXSTREET S.L. reserves the right to suspend credit and/or performance of its obligations if Advertiser fails to make timely payment.
Advertiser shall be responsible for payment of all charges, duties and others assessed in connection with the transfer of the amount being paid. Likewise, advertiser will be the sole responsible for all taxes eventually due in connection with the operation, and in particular, shall made effective the VAT if needed to be charged.
If agency is the Signing Party placing an IO for the benefit of its client, then agency is responsible for all payments hereunder regardless of whether it has received payment from its client, however FOREXSTREET S.L. reserves the right to hold agency and its client jointly and severally liable for all payments.
