5. Payment Terms and Definitions.
5.1. Definitions.
a. "Gross Revenue" means the total revenue received by Infolinks resulting from (i) Advertiser payments made directly to Infolinks by Advertisers for Qualified Clicks, or (ii) payments made directly to Infolinks by its third party business partners for the average monthly price per click for Qualified Clicks for categories of advertising on designated Publisher Sites; in both cases of (i) and (ii) after deducting any taxes or fees that Infolinks is required to pay or collect in relation to the supply of Services, including but not limited to any credit card processing fees, bad debt and charge-backs, commissions or discounts allowed or paid to advertising agencies or sales staff, refunds to Advertisers and third party business partners and other payments to third parties if applicable.
b. "Qualified Clicks" means a click that occurs when a bona fide Internet user clicks on a commercial in-text link that appears in one of the websites listed in Schedule A, and is brought to an Advertiser's website. Qualified Clicks do not include clicks that result from a robot, spider, software, or other mechanical, artificial or fraudulent means as reasonably determined by Infolinks, or clicks made by a person who is paid or deceptively motivated to click on such links.
c. "eCPM" means the price per one thousand (1,000) impressions of pages within Publisher Site(s), when taking into account pages with actual Infolinks Service links ("Impressions"); for the avoidance of doubt, the following pages will not be counted as Impressions: (1) pages with technical limitations that prevent marking Infolinks Service links within them, including but not limited to pages with too little content to mark and pages where most content is hyperlinks; and (2) pages with other in-text ads in them. The eCPM will be calculated on a monthly basis, dividing the total monthly sum of Publisher's share of the Gross Revenue by the number of Impressions divided by one thousand (1,000).
d. "Service" means the provision of commercial in-text advertisement links on Publisher's Site(s) by placing Java Script tags within Publisher's Site(s) and of any other type of contextual advertisements provided by Infolinks, including but not limited to units of InTag links and InFold (all of which are included herein as part of the general term "in-text advertisement links").
e. "Revenue Share" means the percentage of the Gross Revenues to be paid to Publisher. Notwithstanding anything else herein, the Revenue Share set in Section 3 above will only refer to Qualified Clicks on in-text ad units and not to Qualified Clicks on other types of ads, such as Qualified Clicks on InTag, InFold or any other ("Other Qualified Clicks"), provided as part of the Service. For any such Other Qualified Clicks, Publisher will receive as payment a percentage of the Gross Revenues that will be determined by Infolinks in its sole discretion. This part of the Revenue Share percentage shall vary between ad units and from time to time.
5.2. Publisher will be entitled to review a finalized revenue statement for the payment due to Publisher for the immediately preceding month fifteen (15) days after the end of each calendar month within Publisher’s web account (see Reporting). Infolinks will (directly or through a third party payment processor) pay Publisher in accordance with the revenue statement, forty five (45) working days following the end of the calendar month for which payment is due if the earned balance in the Publisher's account equals or exceeds the Payment Threshold. "Payment Threshold" means US$ 50 per month. Once the earned balance exceeds the Payment Threshold, Infolinks will pay (directly or through a third party payment processor) the entire balance amount subject to the other provisions of this Agreement.
Publisher acknowledges and agrees that Infolinks may, at its sole discretion, discount, credit back or accrue a credit against Gross Revenues in circumstances in which it can demonstrate that what appeared to be a Qualified Click was in fact not a Qualified Click. It is hereby expressly agreed by the Publisher that payment processing may be made on behalf of Infolinks by a third party payment processer, and for such purpose Infolinks may disclose Publisher's payment instructions and personal details and/or redirect the Publisher from its website to such third party payment processor's website.
5.3. All payments due under this Agreement are exclusive of taxes, duties, levies, tariffs, and other governmental charges (including without limitation VAT) (collectively, "Taxes"). Publisher will be responsible for payment of all Taxes and any related interest and penalties resulting from any payments made hereunder.
5.4. All payments due under this Agreement will be paid to Publisher through the payment method chosen by Publisher from the payment methods available on the Infolinks website either directly or through a third party to which Infolinks will provide the payment details.
6. Reporting. The Gross Revenue payable to Publisher will be based on Infolinks' reporting system. Infolinks will provide Publisher with a login ID to a reporting interface that will enable Publisher to view an estimate of the Gross Revenues earned under this Agreement. Publisher acknowledges and agrees that the Gross Revenue amounts are based solely on Infolinks' final reported numbers and on no other source.
7. Term, Termination and Renewal.
7.1. The term of the Agreement will commence on the Effective Date, and subject to termination as provided below, will remain in effect for a period of thirty (30) days thereafter ("Trial Term"). During the Trial Term either party may terminate the Agreement by written notice and such termination will take effect immediately. Upon completion of the Trial Term, the Agreement will automatically renew and will remain in force for successive twelve (12) month period each (together, "Agreement Term"). During the Agreement Term, either party may terminate this Agreement for any reason at any time upon one (1) business day prior written notice. Either party may terminate (and in case of Infolinks – Infolinks may also choose, in its sole discretion to suspend the Publisher account, without terminating the Agreement) the Agreement immediately at any time in the event of (1) a breach by the other party of any material provision of the Agreement that remains uncured one (1) day after the breaching party's receipt of written notice of such breach, or (2) the other party discontinues its business or is dissolved or liquidated. If Publisher disables or does not implement the Infolinks Service without the appropriate notice of termination outlined above, such action will be deemed as a material breach of the Agreement and in addition to other remedies Infolinks reserves the right to revoke the Publisher's account and withhold any and all outstanding payments (including any earned balance) due to Publisher under this Agreement.
7.2. Upon expiration or termination of the Agreement: (i) all undisputed payments that have accrued prior to expiration or termination will be payable in full within forty five (45) days thereof; provided that in the event the balance of the account upon expiration or termination of the Agreement is below the Payment Threshold, any sums accrued in the Publisher's account will remain unpaid and Publisher, by accepting this Agreement, consents to such holdback; (ii) all rights and licenses of Publisher under the Agreement will terminate; and (iii) Infolinks' obligations relating to the Software and Service will terminate.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, without limiting rights and remedies available to Infolinks, Infolinks, in its sole discretion, may withhold payment to Publisher at any time during the terms of this Agreement or thereafter, if Publisher breaches the Agreement (including if Publisher commits fraud against Infolinks and/or if Publisher gave incorrect personal details and/or invalid billing information).
8. License to Use Commercial InText Links Technology and Ownership. Infolinks hereby grants to Publisher a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license to use the Commercial InText Links software ("Software"), provided by Infolinks, that enables the Service to run on the Publisher Sites(s), subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the terms and conditions provided to Publisher with the Software. Infolinks expressly reserves all rights in and to the Software not expressly granted herein. Title to the Software shall not pass to Publisher in any circumstances.
