Customer will provide Advertiser with reporting data as frequently as existing reporting from Customer to Advertiser, but no less than on a monthly basis, that discloses absolute dollars spent on Infolinks and performance (at a minimum cost, clicks and impressions of users on the account of that Advertiser) in a reasonably prominent location. Infolinks may, upon request of an Advertiser, share Advertiser-specific information with Advertiser. If Customer is using a Program on its own behalf to advertise and not on behalf of an Advertiser, for that use Customer will be deemed to be both Customer and Advertiser.
- Make-Goods. For reservation-based Display Ads, Infolinks will deliver any agreed upon aggregate number of Display Ads by the end of the campaign, provided that if Infolinks fails to do so, then Customer’s sole remedy is to make a claim during the Claim Period. If Infolinks confirms the accuracy of the claim, then Infolinks will not charge Customer for the undelivered Display Ads or, if Customer has already paid, at Infolinks’s reasonable discretion, Infolinks will provide for (i) advertising credits, which must be used by the Use By Date, (ii) later placement of the Display Ads in a position Infolinks deems comparable or (iii) an extension of the term of the campaign. Infolinks cannot assure that any auction-based Ads will be delivered and therefore make-goods do not apply to auction-based Ads.
- Payment. Customer will pay all charges incurred in connection with the Program, using pre-paid amounts via credit card or paypal, in increments as determined by Infolinks, or as otherwise approved by Infolinks, within a commercially reasonable time period specified by Infolinks (e.g., in the Program user interface or IO). Late payments bear interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less). Charges are exclusive of taxes. Customer will pay (i) all taxes and other government charges and (ii) reasonable expenses and attorneys’ fees Infolinks incurs in collecting late payments. Charges are solely based on Infolinks’s measurements for the Programs and the applicable billing metrics (e.g., clicks or impressions). No party may offset any payment due under these Terms against any other payment to be made under these Terms. Infolinks may, in its sole discretion, extend, revise or revoke credit at any time. Infolinks is not obligated to deliver any Ads in excess of any credit limit. If Infolinks does not deliver Ads to the selected Targets, then Customer’s sole remedy is to make a claim for advertising credits within the Claim Period, after which Infolinks will issue the credits following claim validation which must be used by the Use By Date. Customer understands that third parties may generate impressions or clicks on Customer’s Ads for prohibited or improper purposes and that its sole remedy is to make a claim for advertising credits within the Claim Period, after which Infolinks will issue the credits following claim validation which must be used by the Use By Date. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, (A) ADVERTISER AND CUSTOMER WAIVE ALL CLAIMS RELATING TO ANY PROGRAM CHARGES UNLESS A CLAIM IS MADE WITHIN THE CLAIM PERIOD AND (B) THE ISSUANCE OF ADVERTISING CREDITS (IF ANY) IS AT INFOLINKS’S REASONABLE DISCRETION AND IF ISSUED, MUST BE USED BY THE USE BY DATE.
- Disclaimers. EACH PARTY ON BEHALF OF ITSELF AND ITS AFFILIATES DISCLAIMS ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION FOR NON-INFRINGEMENT, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR ANY PURPOSE. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE PROGRAMS AND INFOLINKS AND PARTNER PROPERTIES ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND AT CUSTOMER’S AND ADVERTISER’S OPTION AND RISK AND NONE OF INFOLINKS, ITS AFFILIATES OR INFOLINKS’S PARTNERS MAKE ANY GUARANTEE IN CONNECTION WITH THE PROGRAMS OR PROGRAM RESULTS.
- Limitation of Liability. EXCEPT FOR SECTION 10 AND CUSTOMER’S BREACHES OF SECTIONS 3(A), 12(D) OR THE LAST SENTENCE OF SECTION 1, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW REGARDLESS OF THE THEORY OR TYPE OF CLAIM: (a) NO PARTY OR ITS AFFILIATES MAY BE HELD LIABLE UNDER THESE TERMS OR ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO PERFORMANCE OF THESE TERMS FOR ANY DAMAGES OTHER THAN DIRECT DAMAGES, EVEN IF THE PARTY IS AWARE OR SHOULD KNOW THAT SUCH DAMAGES ARE POSSIBLE AND EVEN IF DIRECT DAMAGES DO NOT SATISFY A REMEDY; AND (b) OTHER THAN CUSTOMER’S PAYMENT OBLIGATIONS UNDER THESE TERMS, NO PARTY OR ITS AFFILIATES MAY BE HELD LIABLE FOR DAMAGES UNDER THESE TERMS OR ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO PERFORMANCE OF THESE TERMS FOR ANY GIVEN EVENT OR SERIES OF CONNECTED EVENTS IN THE AGGREGATE OF MORE THAN THE AMOUNT PAYABLE TO INFOLINKS BY CUSTOMER UNDER THE TERMS IN THE THIRTY DAYS BEFORE THE DATE OF THE ACTIVITY FIRST GIVING RISE TO THE CLAIM.
- Indemnification. Customer will defend, indemnify and hold harmless Infolinks, its Partners, agents, affiliates, and licensors from any third party claim or liability arising out of or related to Targets, Creative, Destinations, Services, Use and breach of these Terms by Customer. Partners are intended third party beneficiaries of this Section.
- Term. Infolinks may add to, delete from or modify these Terms at any time without liability. The modified Terms will be posted at www.infolinks.com/service-agreement. Customer should look at these Terms regularly. The changes to the Terms will not apply retroactively and will become effective 7 days after posting. However, changes specific to new functionality or changes made for legal reasons will be effective immediately upon notice. Either party may terminate these Terms at any time with notice to the other party, but (i) campaigns not cancelled under Section 4 and new campaigns may be run and reserved and (ii) continued Program Use is, in each case subject to Infolinks’s then standard terms and conditions for the Program available at www.infolinks.com/service-agreement. Infolinks may suspend Customer’s ability to participate in the Programs at any time. In all cases, the running of any Customer campaigns after termination is in Infolinks’s sole discretion.
- Miscellaneous.

Notice will be treated as given on receipt, as verified by written or automated receipt or by electronic log (as applicable). These notice requirements do not apply to legal service of process, which is instead governed by applicable law. (f) Except for modifications to these Terms by Infolinks under Section 11, all amendments must be agreed to by both parties and expressly state that it is amending these Terms. Neither party will be treated as having waived any rights by not exercising (or delaying the exercise of) any rights under these Terms. If any provision of these Terms is found unenforceable, the balance of the Terms will remain in full force and effect.
