As between the parties, the Advertiser is solely responsible for any and all costs Advertiser incurs for the production and delivery of the Advertisements and all Creatives in accordance with the aforementioned technical specification and for any programming undertaken by Advertiser related thereto. Advertiser is solely responsible for the content of any Advertisement and adhering to Disrupted’s strict guidelines governing ratings, content descriptors, targeting of ads to appropriate demographics, and prohibited content, and Disrupted will not make modifications or alternations thereto without Advertiser’s prior written consent except as required for or otherwise incidental to any technical implementation by Disrupted of an Advertisement.
1.3 Advertiser shall have the ability to select a particular implementation and or modification of the Advertising Service through the ctalyst® dashboard as provided through the ctalyst® website (the “ctalyst® Dashboard” and “ctalyst® website”). Advertiser may use the ctalyst™ Dashboard to specify the requirements of a particular advertising campaign, including the payment and purchase of the campaign, the campaign start and end dates, and targeting options for delivery of Advertisements. Advertiser acknowledges that targeting options for delivery and placements of ads are not guaranteed. To this end, Disrupted shall not be liable for sums spent by Advertiser which provide less than or more than the intended delivery options. By way of example, if Advertiser sets a campaign, it may be necessary for Disrupted to deliver Advertisements quicker or slower than intended, for Disrupted to deliver Advertisements to a target different than that chosen by the Advertiser, for Disrupted to utilize its internal targeting mechanisms and softwares to deliver Advertisements to a target different than that chosen by the Advertiser, and that not all Advertisements will result in conversions, interactions and or engagements. Advertiser acknowledges that placement and promotion of Advertisements shall be, as between the parties, at Disrupted’s discretion.
Advertiser hereby grants to Disrupted the worldwide, non-sublicenseable (except to the extent required by Disrupted to fulfill the purposes hereof), non-exclusive, royalty-free, fully paid up, right and license to use, serve, copy, reproduce, distribute and display, in any medium now known or hereafter developed, the advertisements and all related content, materials and metadata, including but not limited to trademarks and logos and url’s, submitted by Advertiser to Disrupted (collectively, “Advertisement(s)”), along with the data referenced below.
3 SERVICE CIRCUMVENTION; COMPETITIVE SERVICES

To this end, Advertiser will not (a) modify or interfere with the Advertising Services, including but not limited to systems for calculating conversions and or other analytics; or (b) knowingly bypass or circumvent the Advertising Services, including but not limited to engaging directly with such ctalyst® Publishers to access their advertising inventory during the term of this Agreement. By way of example, and without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Advertiser shall not create or attempt to create a linking or other arrangement circumventing the Advertising Services such that Disrupted is unable to fully track, monitor and or monetize the delivery and or conversion of ads and other events that are the basis for calculating payments and or performance.

For purposes of calculations, Disrupted shall measure an unlimited period of time for campaigns using either Cost Per Mille (“CPM”) or Cost Per Action (“CPA”) measurements up until such a point that the purchased ads have been placed, the campaign has expired, or the campaign has been stopped or otherwise cancelled or ended. Measurements will be provided in both an aggregate form (all campaigns combined) and an individual campaign form.
4.2 Without waiver to such payment obligation, if Advertiser, in good faith, disputes any amount paid and or due, then Advertiser shall provide notice to Disrupted within ten (10) days of the invoice date. Advertiser acknowledges and agrees that failure to notify Disrupted of disputed amounts within said 10-day time period shall be deemed acceptance of the applicable invoice and waiver of any right to dispute the invoiced amount. Disrupted Logic reserves the right to charge, and Advertiser agrees to pay, interest on amounts due but not paid in the time frame set forth above an amount equal to the lesser of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the maximum amount permitted by applicable law. Pre-paid account balances are non-refundable and will be reduced to offset amounts owed as they are incurred, and Advertiser hereby consents to such right of offset. For all other amounts requiring adjustments, in lieu of cash payments, Disrupted reserves the right to offer marketing credits in the form of non-monetizable and non-transferable credits issued for promotion through the Disrupted Services. Such credits, if any, shall be Advertiser’s sole and exclusive remedy regarding any claim asserting non-fulfillment, in whole or in part, of an Insertion Order. All billing and transaction times referenced in the Agreement are on Coordinated Universal Time, Pacific Standard Time. All amounts shall be invoiced and paid in United States dollars and do not include taxes or tax withholdings that may be assessed by any jurisdiction or transmission fees that may be assessed by both Disrupted’s and Advertiser’s banking institution, each of which shall be Advertiser’s sole responsibility. If withholding taxes or other taxes are imposed by any jurisdiction on the transactions made pursuant to this Agreement, Advertiser will promptly pay such taxes to ensure that Disrupted receives the full amount invoiced to Advertiser without offset or deduction. Upon payment of such taxes, Advertiser will furnish to Disrupted the applicable receipts and/or certificates regarding such remittances as soon as reasonably practicable and in any case within five (5) business days of written request.
4.3 Disrupted Logic shall provide Advertiser with all reporting required in order to satisfy the requirements of the Disrupted Services, including reporting used to calculate balances remaining on campaigns. To this end, Disrupted shall use all tracking and other technology reasonably required by Disrupted Logic including, as applicable, the Disrupted API and or third party mechanisms. If a third party mechanism or technology is used, then Disrupted shall provide Advertiser with the information necessary to access applicable data made available therefrom. Such reporting shall be made available to the Advertiser through the ctalyst® network Dashboard and Analytics panels, accessible within the Advertiser’s ctalyst® account.
4.4 Disrupted Logic makes an API available to those Advertisers (“Exchange Services”) who represent many clients and wish to “white label” such a provision. If Advertiser intends to integrate to the ctalyst® network by using the API, it shall obtain such API from within their ctalyst® account. Advertiser shall comply with all license requirements provided in connection therewith and shall always integrate the then-current and most up to date version of the API.
5 AD CANCELLATION POLICY
Either party may cancel an Ad placement at any time, without penalty, before the completion of payment for the placement. If an Advertiser cancels (“Cancels” or “Stops”) an ad after completion of payment and or upon or after the commencement of placement, the Advertiser will only be permitted to “stop” the continued distribution of remaining placements. Cancelled Ads will cease serving within 8-24 business hours and Advertiser remains obligated for the entire cost of the campaign regardless of the cancellation. Advertiser acknowledges that no refund or reimbursements or pro-rated reimbursements shall be made whatsoever for any reason.

56 DISPUTE RESOLUTION/ARBITRATION
PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY – IT MAY SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING YOUR RIGHT TO FILE A LAWSUIT IN COURT AND TO HAVE A JURY HEAR YOUR CLAIMS. DISRUPTED AND ADVERTISER OR PUBLISHER AGREE THAT THESE TERMS OF SERVICE AFFECT COMMERCE AND INTERNATIONAL COMMERCE AND THAT THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT GOVERNS THE INTERPRETATION OF THESE ARBITRATION PROVISIONS.
56.1 Informal Resolution. In the event of a dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service (including with respect to their validity or enforceability), the ctalyst® Platform (including Disrupted Publisher Services), any person’s or entity’s access to and/or use of the ctalyst® Platform or Disrupted Publisher Services, and/or the provision of content, products, services, and/or technology on or through the ctalyst® Platform or Disrupted Publisher Services, Disrupted or you must first give the other notice of the dispute, claim, or controversy, and the notice must include a brief written statement that sets forth the name, address, and contact information of the party giving it, as well as the facts giving rise to the dispute, claim, or controversy and the relief requested. Notices must be made in accordance with Section 19 hereof. Disrupted and you will attempt to resolve any dispute, claim, or controversy through informal negotiation within thirty (30) days from the date that any notice of dispute, claim, or controversy is sent. Disrupted and you shall use reasonable, good faith, efforts to settle any dispute, claim, or controversy through consultation and good faith negotiations. After 30 days, Disrupted or you may resort to the other alternatives described in this Section. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the notice and 30 day negotiation period required by this paragraph shall not apply to disputes, claims, or controversies concerning patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, and trade secrets and claims of piracy or unauthorized use of the Disrupted Publisher Services. Nothing in th is Terms of Service limits Disrupted’s rights with respect to Problem Events or to suspend the Publisher Services at any time.
56.2 Formal Resolution by Arbitration. Except as otherwise specifically set forth below, any dispute, claim, or controversy of any kind between Disrupted and you arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service (including with respect to their validity or enforceability), the Disrupted Publisher Services, any person’s or entity’s access to and/or use of the Disrupted Publisher Services, and/or the provision of content, products, services, and/or technology on or through the Disrupted Publisher Services, if unresolved through informal discussions within thirty (30) days of the sending of the notice described above, shall be resolved by binding arbitration to be held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The arbitration shall be conducted by a single arbitrator. The decision of the arbitrator will be in writing and binding and conclusive on Disrupted and you, and judgment to enforce the decision may be entered by any court of competent jurisdiction. Disrupted and you agree that dispositive motions, including without limitation motions to dismiss and motions for summary judgment, will be allowed in the arbitration. The arbitrator must follow these Terms of Service and can award the same damages and relief as a court, including injunctive or other equitable relief and attorney’s fees. Disrupted and you understand that, absent this mandatory arbitration provision, Disrupted and you would have the right to sue in court and have a jury trial. Disrupted and you further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and that the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
56.3 Exceptions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, disputes, claims, or controversies concerning patents, copyrights, moral rights, trademarks, Confidential Information, and trade secrets and claims of piracy or unauthorized use of the Disrupted Publisher Services shall not be subject to arbitration. You or Disrupted may choose to pursue a claim in small claims court where jurisdiction and venue over you and Disrupted otherwise qualify for such small claims court and where the claim does not include a request for any type of equitable relief. If for any reason a claim, dispute or controversy between Disrupted and you is before a court (e.g., if the arbitration provisions are found unenforceable or if pursuant to these Terms of Service the matter is not subject to arbitration), Disrupted and you agree to exclusive personal jurisdiction and venue in the province and federal courts located in Vancouver, British Columbia and agree to waive, to the fullest extent allowed by law, any trial by jury.
56.4 Applicability. This will also apply to any claims asserted by you against any present or future parent, subsidiary or affiliated company of Disrupted, and to any claims asserted by any of them against you, to the extent that any such claims arise out of or relate to these Terms of Service (including with respect to their validity or enforceability), the Disrupted Publisher Services, any person’s or entity’s access to and/or use of the Disrupted Publisher Services, and/or the provision of content, products, services, and/or technology on or through the Disrupted Publisher Services.
57.1 All comments, feedback or materials submitted by Advertiser or Publisher to Disrupted including feedback, testimonials, images, reviews, questions, comments, suggestions or ideas (collectively, “Feedback”) shall be received and treated by Disrupted on a non-confidential and unrestricted basis. Disrupted will be free to use, display, perform, distribute, copy, adapt, and promote, in any medium now known or later developed, without compensation to Advertiser or Publisher, the Feedback along with all ideas, concepts, know-how, techniques or methodologies contained in such Feedback, for any purpose whatsoever, including without limitation, developing, marketing and selling products and services incorporating such Feedback. Advertiser or Publisher agrees that, in submitting Feedback, it will not violate any right of any third party, including any confidentiality, copyright, trademark, privacy or other personal or intellectual property or proprietary rights, and will not cause injury to any person or entity. Advertiser or Publisher further agrees that no Feedback Advertiser or Publisher submits will be or contain libelous or otherwise unlawful, threatening, abusive or obscene material, or contain viruses, commercial solicitations, or any form of “spam”.
Notices to Advertiser or Publisher shall be sent by email to the address provided for Advertiser or Publisher in the Account Configuration. Notices to Disrupted shall be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org; provided, however, that any notice concerning termination, breach, indemnification or any other legal concern (collectively, “Legal Notice”) shall be made in writing and delivered by hand delivery, or by internationally recognized overnight courier service, or by prepaid, certified mail return receipt requested to: Disrupted Logic Interactive Inc, Suite 210 8120 128th Street, Surrey, British Columbia, Canada V3W 1R1, Atten: Legal Department. Notices shall be effective upon receipt; provided that notices sent by email shall be effective as of the email date absent receipt by the sender of a bounce back or error message, and provided further that Legal Notices shall be effective only if made and delivered in the manner expressly set forth above.
The words “include” and “including” and variations thereof will not be deemed to be terms of limitation, but rather will be deemed to be followed by the words “without limitation.” This Agreement sets forth the entire agreement between Disrupted and Advertiser or Publisher, and supersedes any and all prior agreements (whether written or oral) with respect to the subject matter set forth herein. This Agreement, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned without Disrupted’s prior written consent, and any attempt to do so in breach of the foregoing will be null and void. This Agreement shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon each party’s respective successors and assigns. Disrupted and Advertiser or Publisher are independent contractors, and neither Disrupted nor Advertiser or Publisher is an agent, representative or partner of the other. Disrupted may amend or update these Terms of Service at any time in its sole discretion by posting any such amended or updated Terms of Service to Disrupted’s website or otherwise notifying Advertiser or Publisher. Advertiser’s or Publisher’s continued use of the Disrupted Services following such posting or notice of amended and/or updated Terms of Service shall constitute Advertiser’s or Publisher’s acceptance of the amended and or updated Terms of Service. Disrupted reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, all or any portion of the Disrupted Services without notice. Disrupted will not be liable to Advertiser or Publisher or to any third party for any modification, suspension, failure or discontinuance of all or any portion of the Disrupted Services. The waiver of any breach or default of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default, and will not act to amend or negate the rights of the waiving party. If any provision of this Agreement is determined to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any respect under any applicable law, then such provision will be severed and replaced with a new provision that most closely reflects the original intention of the parties, and the remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect. In case of any conflict or inconsistency among these Terms of Service, the terms contained in an applicable Order Summary, any amendment to the Terms of Service or Order Summary, or the Guidelines, the terms of the applicable amendment shall govern and control, followed in precedence by the applicable Order Summary, these Terms of Service, and followed then by the Guidelines.
