The following terms (the “Datacenterplatform Ads Agreement” or “Agreement”) apply to your use of Datacenterplatform’s online advertising platform and the associated self-serve, auction-based ad services (the “Ad Services). The Ad Services allow your ads to be served on properties of Datacenterplatform and enabled third parties (collectively, “Properties”), e.g., Datacenterplatform Audience Network websites and mobile applications. By registering for or using our online Advertising platform or our Ad Services, you agree to the terms of this Agreement, so please take a moment to read them.
When you use our Ad Services you agree to this Ads Agreement and the terms for optional features.
If you use the Ad Services for a third party, you must have permission to do so.
If you have entered into a separate advertising agreement with Datacenterplatform with terms that cover subject matter also addressed in this Ads Agreement, those separate terms govern with respect to that subject matter but this Ads Agreement governs with respect to any additional subject matter (e.g. conversion tracking, website demographics, matched audiences, and lead gen forms). Otherwise, this Ads Agreement governs with respect to all use of the Ad Services.
If you are accessing or using the Ad Services on behalf of a business or third party, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to do so and to bind that business or third party to this Ads Agreement, and your agreement to this Ads Agreement will be treated as their respective agreement. In this event, Datacenterplatform may hold you responsible for violations of this Ads Agreement by that business or third party, and “you,” “your” and “party” will also refer and apply to that business or third party.
2. Ad Services
- We try to optimize your campaigns and offer you optimization choices.
- Your use of the Ad Services must comply with Applicable Law and all applicable terms.
- You are responsible for use of the Ad Services through your account.
- If you use the Ad Services for a business, that business can receive information about your use and remove you from its accounts.
- We may reject Ads, modify or terminate the Ad Services and participate in auctions for ads on the Ad Services.
The Ad Services are designed to enhance the effectiveness of your campaigns. Datacenterplatform may offer you choices about whether you would like to use certain automated optimizations (e.g., to opt-out of automatic expansion of your specific targeting criteria or to participate in optimized bidding). With your permission, Datacenterplatform also may manually assist you with your campaigns.
You are responsible for (i) all ads and content therefore submitted by or on your behalf through the Ad Services or otherwise to Datacenterplatform, including the creatives, text, images, branding, URLs, tags, and pixels that comprise the ads and content thereof (collectively, your “Ads”), (ii) all ad trafficking or targeting decisions made by or on your behalf, (iii) all content and property to which Ads direct viewers, as well as redirects (“Destinations”), and (iv) all services and products advertised on Destinations (“Advertised Goods”). Except as expressly agreed by Datacenterplatform in writing, Datacenterplatform will determine the size, placement and positioning of your Ads. Datacenterplatform will serve your Ads as inventory becomes available on the Properties. Your Ads, Destinations, Advertised Goods and use of the Ad Services must comply with all applicable laws, self-regulatory rules, industry rules and governmental requirements (collectively, “Applicable Law”).
You are responsible for any activity conducted through your account, including any purchases made or charges incurred. If you identify that you are using the Ad Services on behalf of a business, you agree that the Datacenterplatform may share information about your purchases and use of the Ad Services with that business, including its representatives and agents. If that business indicates that you are no longer authorized to place ads on its behalf (e.g., if you leave that business or change roles within that business), you agree you may be removed from accounts associated with that business.
Datacenterplatform may, in its sole discretion, modify, or terminate any part or all of the Ad Services or suspend your ability to use the Ad Services (including in instances where you do not meet Datacenterplatform’s credit approval requirements). Datacenterplatform and its affiliates retain the complete and unqualified right to serve advertisements for its own products and services and to participate in auctions through the Ad Services to serve such advertisements.
3. Fees, Payment and Cancellation.
We will charge you periodically on the basis shown when your campaign was set up.
You agree to pay on the basis and at the rate shown when a campaign, order or other purchase was submitted through your account (“Rate”), e.g., price per impression, click, other conversion, lead or period, whether with a fixed or automatically optimized bid, whether with daily budget, lifetime pacing, or other budget options. You also agree to pay all applicable taxes, government charges and foreign exchange fees. For these purposes, taxes include all federal, state, and local sales, use, gross receipts, VAT, GST, levies and similar transaction taxes. You will have no liability for income taxes that are statutorily imposed on Datacenterplatform including taxes or fees measured by Datacenterplatform’s net or gross income.
Datacenterplatform will periodically charge your payment method at the applicable Rate. All amounts paid are non-refundable. You remain responsible for any uncollected amounts. Datacenterplatform may charge interest for any overdue amounts at the rate of the lesser of 1% per month or the lawful maximum, and you agree to reimburse us for all collection costs for overdue amounts. To the extent you have not spent your designated budget, you may limit or stop additional charges by editing the budget through your account or suspending or canceling the campaign. Datacenterplatform will endeavor to cease serving your Ads promptly following your suspension or cancellation, but you agree to pay and will be charged at the Rate for Ads delivered up until they cease to be displayed. Datacenterplatform may store and update (e.g. upon expiration) your payment method for use with subsequent campaigns, orders and purchases submitted through your account.
The amount you owe will be calculated based on Datacenterplatform’s tracking mechanisms. Datacenterplatform is not responsible for click fraud, fraudulent leads, technological issues or other potentially invalid activity by third parties that may affect the cost of running Ads. Your exclusive remedy for suspected invalid activity is to make a claim for an Ad Services credit within 90 days of the date of that activity, and Datacenterplatform’s exclusive liability is, in Datacenterplatform’s sole discretion, to issue Ad Services credit for suspected invalid activity. Any Ad Services credit that you may accrue are non-refundable and non-transferable and must be used prior to termination of this Ads Agreement or your account.
