- Access and Use of Unruly Sites
Access to certain portions of the Unruly Sites, including the account areas for Publishers and Advertising Clients, are conditioned upon the you, as an individual and on behalf of the business with which you are affiliated, using a self-designated or assigned login and password.
You may choose not to use the Unruly Sites or log-in and access your account areas. However, participation in the Unruly Publisher Network or benefit and enjoyment of any Unruly Advertising Services, as applicable, may require you to use the Unruly Sites, and there is no guarantee that any offered opportunities or services can be performed by Unruly or enjoyed if a Publisher or Advertising Client fails or refuses to utilize fully the features of the Unruly Sites.
Further, Unruly depends upon you keeping all information (including your email address, contact information, billing and/or payment information, etc.) up-to-date, complete and accurate at all times. Failure to do so may prevent Unruly from making payment, managing placements and/or otherwise performing services.
The login and password are provided for the use by you as an individual user or by a group of users affiliated with your business, and are not transferable to users who are not affiliated with you or your business and for whose use and conduct you and your business are not willing to assume full responsibility and liability. You agree to maintain your login and password strictly confidential. You and your business will be solely responsible and liable, and Unruly shall have no liability, for any and all activities that occur associated with use of your login and password.
Unruly is not responsible for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the provisions of this section. Misuse of these Unruly Sites including improper access of any account area or unauthorized sharing of the login and password, may result, at Unruly’s sole discretion, in the cancellation of the Publisher’s or Advertising Client’s access and/or account or the pursuit of other remedies.
- One Account
Each Publisher or Advertising Client may maintain only one account. Neither you nor the business on behalf of which you may be using the Unruly Site(s) may register or maintain multiple accounts. The existence of multiple accounts, if and when discovered, can result in immediate termination of use and access privileges unless expressly authorized in writing by Unruly. If Unruly discovers that you have registered for multiple accounts, Unruly may in its sole discretion decide which account to terminate. Without waiving any rights or remedies that may be available to us, Unruly shall have no obligation or liability to you in respect of any such terminated account including any obligation to pay you any monies or permit you to retrieve or access any reports or data.
In the case of Publishers, such account may cover more than one web site; however we may limit or permit only one web site (preferably your main site) to be registered initially. New and/or additional sites may then be added, subject to Unruly’s review and approval, once you and such initial web site have been approved to participate in the Unruly Publisher Network or in connection with a specific Advertising Client’s campaign. Such site or sites approved to participate are referred to generally as “Publisher’s Site(s).”
