PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING VERY CAREFULLY. BY SUBMITTING AN INSERTION ORDER TO UNRULY, YOU, AS “ADVERTISER” OR “AGENCY”, AS APPLICABLE, REPRESENT, WARRANT AND COVENANT THAT YOU ARE ABLE TO AGREE AND ENTER INTO AND PERFORM THE OBLIGATIONS SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT AS AND PERTAINING TO “ADVERTISER” OR “AGENCY” AND YOU ARE AND WILL BE BOUND BY THIS AGREEMENT. IF YOU WORK FOR OR REPRESENT AN ADVERTISER OR OTHER ENTITY THAT IS THE “ADVERTISER” FOR THE PURPOSES OF THIS AGREEMENT, YOU FURTHER REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU ARE AUTHORIZED TO AGREE TO AND PERFORM THIS AGREEMENT ON BEHALF OF SUCH ADVERTISER OR ENTITY.
This Agreement is entered into by and between Unruly Group Limited, a company incorporated in England and Wales with registered number 05411297 and whose registered office is The White Chapel Building, 15 Whitechapel High Street, London E1 8QS, United Kingdom or any of Unruly’s affiliates, including without limitation Unruly Media Inc., Unruly Media AB, Unruly Media AS, Unruly Media GmbH, Unruly Media KK, Unruly Media Pte Ltd, Unruly Media Pty Ltd, Unmedia Video Distribution Sdn Bhd and any other subsidiary of Unruly Holdings Limited now existing or hereafter formed (individually and collectively, “Unruly”) and the company named as advertiser in the Insertion Order (“Advertiser”) and/or the agency listed in the Insertion Order for such Advertiser (“Agency”), if any.
These Advertiser Terms and Conditions shall apply to all Insertion Orders and this Agreement shall continue in effect for as long as there remains an active Insertion Order between Unruly and Advertiser and/or Agency.
By submitting an Insertion Order to Unruly, Advertiser engages Unruly to place and deliver advertising (“Ads”) across Unruly’s network of publishers (the “Unruly Publisher Network”). Advertiser may also engage Unruly to provide creative editing and interactive video services (“Edit Suite”) in which case Section 16 (Edit Suite) shall apply.
2. Delivery of Advertising Materials.
Advertiser will, at its sole cost and expense, create and deliver all video, rich media creative and/or other advertising materials required for any Ad (“Advertising Materials”) according to the technical specifications and within the timeframe provided by Unruly. Advertiser may delegate such obligations to any Agency listed on the Insertion Order, but Advertiser shall remain responsible for the Advertising Materials delivered.
If the delivered Advertising Materials do not conform to Unruly’s technical specifications or do not arrive timely enough to deliver the Ad on any agreed dates according to the Insertion Order, Unruly, in its sole discretion, may: (a) reject such Ad and refund any applicable amounts paid in advance; or (b) postpone running such Ad until a reasonable period of time after: (i) the non-conforming Advertising Materials are corrected; or (ii) the late-arriving Advertising Materials are received. In any event, Unruly may begin to charge Advertiser on the Insertion Order start date on a pro-rata basis based on the full Insertion Order for each full day that the Advertising Materials are not received.
3. Use of Information.
For the term of the relevant Insertion Order, Advertiser hereby grants to Unruly and its publishers and other partners in the Unruly Publisher Network a non-exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide license to (a) use, perform and display any Ad (and associated Advertising Materials) delivered hereunder in accordance with the terms of the Insertion Order, and (b) use all associated Advertiser intellectual property in connection therewith. Without limiting the foregoing, Advertiser and Agency acknowledge that Unruly may distribute and place Ads across a blend of online media to deliver mass reach, response and niche contextual placements including but not limited to branded websites and blogs, gaming, widgets and similar applications on social networking platforms such as Facebook, mobile apps, devices and similar environments, rewarded entertainment and e-retail sites, and video and rich media search engines, and the rights granted hereunder shall cover and permit any and all such channels and uses (which shall be deemed to be part of the Unruly Publisher Network). Further, Advertiser and Agency acknowledge that Unruly may use, perform, serve and display Ads by a video or rich media content player which is proprietary to Unruly (“Unruly Media Player”) and, on occasion, via third party players used by certain publishers in the Unruly Publisher Network.
Title to and ownership of all intellectual property rights of any Ad and associated Advertiser intellectual property shall remain at all times with Advertiser or its third party licensors (as applicable). In addition, Advertiser agrees that Unruly may, during the term of this Agreement and thereafter, include Advertiser’s name (including any trade name, trademark, service mark and logo) and any Ad provided hereunder on Unruly’s customer list and in its marketing materials and sales presentations.
Reporting on performance and delivery, including, without limitation, views or engagements of Ads is determined by Unruly in its sole discretion and such reporting will be used to determine the fees payable by Advertiser or Agency (as applicable) pursuant to an Insertion Order (“Controlling Measurement”).
With Unruly’s prior written consent (to be provided in Unruly’s sole discretion) and subject to any conditions imposed by Unruly, Advertiser or Agency may, at its or their cost, use a third party to track an Ad’s performance. If the Controlling Measurement is higher than the measurement by such other third party by more than 10% over the invoice period, the parties will work together in good faith to investigate and resolve such discrepancy. If the discrepancy cannot be resolved within 10 business days, Advertiser’s or Agency’s sole right and remedy shall be either to (a) consider the discrepancy an under-delivery to be remedied by a makegood flight, where delivery of such makegood will be measured by such third party ad tracking mechanism, or (b) pay the invoice based on the Controlling Measurement-reported data, plus a 10% upward adjustment to delivery.
6. Payment Terms.
Invoices will be sent by Unruly at such times as provided in the Insertion Order, or otherwise from time to time according to Unruly’s normal billing procedures. Invoices will be sent to the billing address of Advertiser or Agency as applicable and as set forth in the Insertion Order. Failure by Unruly for whatever reason to send a timely invoice will not affect Advertiser’s obligation to pay for any Ads placed in accordance with the Insertion Order.
Payment is due within thirty (30) calendar days of the date of invoice, unless Unruly expressly agrees otherwise in the Insertion Order. Payments not made by the due date shall accrue interest at the rate of 1.5% per month or, if less, the highest rate permitted under applicable law. All costs of collection for overdue payments incurred by Unruly, including reasonable legal fees and expenses, shall be borne by Advertiser and Agency jointly and severally.
If Advertiser or Agency disputes any invoice, Advertiser or Agency must notify Unruly in writing within seven (7) calendar days of the date of the invoice, and any failure to do so within such seven (7) day period shall be deemed a waiver by Advertiser and Agency of any claim relating to any such disputed invoice.
If an Agency is listed on the Insertion Order, Unruly will hold Agency and Advertiser jointly and severally liable for payments. Should sums not have been cleared to Agency, Agency agrees to make every reasonable effort to collect and clear payment from Advertiser on a timely basis. Upon Unruly’s request, Agency will make available written confirmation of the relationship between Agency and Advertiser. Such confirmation will include, for example, Advertiser’s acknowledgement that Agency is its agent and is authorized to act on its behalf in connection with the Insertion Order and this Agreement. In addition, upon the request of Unruly, Agency will confirm whether Advertiser has paid to Agency in advance funds sufficient to make payments pursuant to the Insertion Order. Agency’s credit is established on a client-by-client basis. Unruly shall have the right to reassess the Agency’s credit to the extent Agency fails to clear Advertiser’s proceeds including in relation to the credit of other advertisers’ that may be represented by such Agency. If Advertiser’s or Agency’s credit is or becomes impaired, Unruly may require payment in advance.
Unless otherwise set forth in this Agreement, all fees and other amounts due under this Agreement are exclusive of sales, use, value added, GST, excise and customs duties and any other similar taxes (collectively “Transaction Taxes“). All Transaction Taxes, whether existing at present or imposed/imposable in the future, by any governmental authority arising out of such agreement shall be paid by Advertiser to Unruly within the agreed payment terms noted in this section of thirty (30) calendar days or the applicable law, on receipt of a valid tax invoice.
If Advertiser is required to withhold any taxes on payments to Unruly under this Agreement under the applicable law, such Advertiser shall withhold such amounts, pay the same to the relevant taxing authority within the time prescribed under applicable law, and promptly furnish to Unruly with appropriate documentation of the amounts so withheld and payment of the same to the taxing authorities, as soon as practicable.
Advertiser shall indemnify Unruly for the full amount of any taxes imposed by any jurisdiction which are the responsibility of such Advertiser and any liability (including penalties, in addition to tax, interest and expenses) arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such taxes were correctly or legally asserted. This indemnification shall be made within thirty (30) days from the date Unruly makes a written demand therefor.
