Splashscore Advertising Program Terms & Conditions

These Splashscore Advertising Program Terms & Conditions (“Terms”) are entered into by Splashscore (“Splashscore”) and the entity executing these Terms or that accepts these Terms electronically (“Customer”).  These Terms govern Customer’s participation in Splashscore’s advertising programs and services (i) that are accessible through the account(s) given to Customer in connection with these Terms or (ii) that reference or are referenced by these Terms (collectively, “Programs”).  In consideration of the foregoing, the parties agree as follows:

 

1 Programs. 

Customer authorizes Splashscore and its affiliates to place Customer’s advertising materials and related technology (collectively, “Ads” or “Creative”) on any content or property (each a “Property”) provided by Splashscore or its affiliates on behalf of itself or, as applicable, a third party (“Partner”).  Customer is solely responsible for all:  (i) Creative, (ii) Ad trafficking or targeting decisions (“Targets”), (iii) Properties to which Creative directs viewers (e.g., landing pages) along with the related URLs and redirects (“Destinations”) and (iv) services and products advertised on Destinations (collectively, “Services”). The Program is an advertising platform on which Customer authorizes Splashscore to use automated tools to format Ads. Splashscore and its affiliates may make available to Customer certain optional Program features to assist Customer with the selection and generation of Targets and Creative.  Customer is not required to authorize use of these optional Targeting and Creative features and, as applicable, may opt-in to or opt-out of usage of these features, but if Customer uses these features then Customer will be solely responsible for the Targets and Creative. Splashscore or Partners may reject or remove a specific Ad or Target at any time for any or no reason.  Splashscore and its affiliates may modify or cancel Programs at any time.  Customer acknowledges that Splashscore or its affiliates may participate in Program auctions in support of its own services and products.  Some Program features are identified as “Beta,” or as otherwise unsupported or confidential (collectively, “Beta Features”). Customer may not disclose any information from Beta Features or the terms or existence of any non-public Beta Features.

 

2 Policies. 

Customer is solely responsible for its use of the Programs (e.g., access to and use of Program accounts and safeguarding usernames and passwords) (“Use”).  In connection with the Program, Splashscore will comply with the Splashscore Privacy Policy.  Customer authorizes Splashscore to modify Ads or Creative.  Customer will not, and will not authorize any third party to, (i) generate automated, fraudulent or otherwise invalid impressions, inquiries, clicks or conversions, (ii) conceal conversions for Programs where they are required to be disclosed or (iii) use any automated means or form of scraping or data extraction to access, query or otherwise collect Splashscore advertising related information from any Property except as expressly permitted by Splashscore. Customer will direct communications regarding Ads on Partner Properties under these Terms only to Splashscore.

3 Cancellation. 

Unless a Policy, the Program user interface or an agreement referencing these Terms (an “IO”) provides otherwise, either party may cancel any Ad at any time before placement, but if Customer cancels an Ad after a placement, then Customer is responsible for any cancellation fees communicated by Splashscore to Customer (if any) and the Ad may still be published.  Cancelled Ads will generally cease serving within 8 business hours or as described in a Policy or IO, and Customer remains obligated to pay all charges resulting from served Ads (e.g., fees based on influencer participation).  Customer must effect cancellation of Ads (i) online through Customer’s account if the functionality is available, (ii) if this functionality is not available, with notice to Splashscore via email to Customer’s account representative or (iii) if Customer does not have an account representative, with notice to Splashscore via email to contact@splashscore.com (collectively, the “Ad Cancellation Process”). Customer will not be relieved of any payment obligations for Creative not submitted or submitted by Customer after the due date provided by Splashscore. Splashscore will not be bound by a Customer provided IO.

 

4 Warranty and Rights. 

Customer warrants that (a) it holds, and hereby grants Splashscore, its affiliates and Partners, the rights in Creative, Destinations and Targets for Splashscore, its affiliates and Partners to operate the Programs and (b) all information and authorizations provided by Customer are complete, correct and current.  Customer authorizes Splashscore and its affiliates to automate retrieval and analysis of Destinations for the purposes of the Programs.  Customer warrants that it is authorized to act on behalf of, and has bound to these Terms, third parties, if any, for which Customer advertises in connection with these Terms (“Advertiser”).  If for any reason Customer has not bound an Advertiser to these Terms, Customer will be liable for performing any obligation that the Advertiser would have if it had been bound to these Terms. 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 Splashscore and performance (at a minimum cost, clicks and impressions of users on the account of that Advertiser) in a reasonably prominent location.  Splashscore 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.

 

5 Payment.  

Customer will pay all charges incurred in connection with the Program, in immediately available funds or as otherwise approved by Splashscore, within a commercially reasonable time period specified by Splashscore (e.g., in the Program user interface or IO).  All payments due are in U.S. dollars.  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 Splashscore incurs in collecting late payments.  Charges are solely based on Splashscore’s measurements for the Programs and the applicable billing metrics (e.g., participating influencers).  Any portion of a charge not disputed in good faith must be paid in full.  No party may offset any payment due under these Terms against any other payment to be made under these Terms.  Splashscore may, in its sole discretion, extend, revise or revoke credit at any time. Splashscore is not obligated to deliver any Ads in excess of any credit limit.  If Splashscore 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 Splashscore 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 Splashscore 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 SPLASHSCORE’S REASONABLE DISCRETION AND IF ISSUED, MUST BE USED BY THE USE BY DATE.

 

6 Reporting and Statistics.  

Splashscore will provide Customers with password protected access to 24/7 online reporting information so that Customer may monitor its campaign.  Splashscore will undertake commercially reasonable efforts to deliver results (e.g. influencers, likes, posts, clicks) in accordance with the estimates set for this campaign. However, Splashscore makes no commitment regarding results for any advertisements.  Splashscore will maintain delivery assistance and Customer acknowledges that such delivery statistics are the official and definitive measurements of Splashscore’s performance on any delivery obligations for this campaign.

 

7 Disclaimers.

Splashscore makes no warranties, expressed or implied, and hereby disclaims and negates all other warranties, including without limitation, implied warranties or conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement of intellectual property or other violation of rights. Further, Splashscore does not warrant or make any representations concerning the accuracy, likely results, or reliability of the use of the materials on its Internet web site or otherwise relating to such materials or on any sites linked to this site.

 

8 Confidentiality and Security

12 Term.

Splashscore may add to, delete from or modify these Terms at any time without liability.  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 3 and new campaigns may be run and reserved and (ii) continued Program Use is, in each case subject to Splashscore’s then standard terms and conditions for the Program.  Splashscore 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 Splashscore’s sole discretion.
