This Media Sales and Delivery Agreement (hereinafter referred to as “Agreement”), is entered into by and between Masasla Inc. (hereafter “BrandWeaver”), and you (the Party executing an Insertion Order with BrandWeaver, hereinafter referred to as “Marketer”) and Marketer’s Affiliates. BrandWeaver and Marketer are sometimes referred to herein individually as, “Party” and collectively as, the “Parties.”
TERMS AND CONDITIONS

b. “Creative(s)” means any advertisement provided by Marketer on behalf of itself or any other clients within its network or any asset provided by Marketer, including, but not limited to, advertising materials, descriptions, white papers, email content, call scripts, webinars, abstracts, case studies, videos, presentations, artwork, or active URLs for advertisements and product sheets.
c. “Affiliate” means an entity or entities that are directly or indirectly controlling, controlled by or under common control with a Party, where control means the ownership or control, directly or indirectly, of more than 50 percent of all of the voting shares; provided that an entity shall be considered an affiliate only for the time during which such control exists.
d. “Campaign” is a set of ad groups (ads, taglines, descriptions, and bids) that share a budget and other settings. Campaigns are often used to organize categories of products or services that Marketer offers.
e. “Insertion Order” (“IO”) is an agreement: (i) authorizing BrandWeaver to create Campaign(s) within the Platform on behalf of Marketer thereby allowing Sources to generate Records consistent with the terms of the IO.
f. The “Advertising Exchange” or “Exchange” is where Marketer will have access to Sources that can generate Records in response to Marketer’s Campaigns.

2. SCOPE OF AGREEMENT
This Agreement together with the IO comprise the agreement between BrandWeaver and Marketer. The terms and conditions of this Agreement are hereby incorporated by reference into each IO as if fully set forth therein. Where there is a conflict or inconsistency between the terms and conditions of this Agreement or an IO, the terms and conditions of this Agreement will control and take precedence, except to the extent the conflicting IO expressly provides that the conflicting or inconsistent terms and conditions of the IO take precedence over the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
3. ABILITY TO BIND MARKETER
a. Marketer hereby authorizes and directs BrandWeaver to bind Marketer to the purchase of Records in the Platform, as outlined in the Insertion Orders agreed to between Marketer and BrandWeaver.
b. The Insertion Orders may include, but are not limited to, the following: (i) the Cost Per Record range, i.e. how much the Marketer will pay for any given Record; (ii) the total daily / monthly caps on Records to be purchased, i.e. how many Records can be purchased in a day or month; (iii) all campaign targets/fields, i.e. what criteria the Marketer must have for a Record to be valid; and (iv) the end date for a campaign. If no end date is provided, Marketer must provide BrandWeaver forty-eight (48) hours’ notice before a Campaign will be terminated or suspended.
c. Marketer hereby authorizes BrandWeaver to create a Campaign in the Platform, on behalf of Marketer, by using Marketer’s account. If Marketer does not have an account with BrandWeaver, by entering into this Agreement or any IO with BrandWeaver, Marketer authorizes BrandWeaver to create a Marketer account within the Platform consistent with the purpose of this Agreement or IO. All Campaigns are created based on the descriptions in from the IO entered between the Parties.
d. Modifications to the originally submitted IO will only be binding if approved in writing by the Parties, this includes but is not limited to start/end dates, allocation and price. Acknowledged receipt of electronic mail (email) documenting the modifications by both Parties will constitute a writing for these purposes.
e. Marketer agrees that BrandWeaver may purchase Records from any Source within the Platform. If Marketer does not want to purchase Records from a specific Source, Marketer must state, in writing, by Source name or Source’s BrandWeaver Source identification number (“SID”) that it does not want to purchase Records from that Source.
f. Marketer will have limited access to the Platform. Marketer understands and agrees that it will be given access to the Platform to review all Campaigns, Source profiles and the tracking of Records. Marketer will be able to view all Campaign settings and utilize reporting features but will not be able to make changes to its Campaigns. To make changes to a Campaign, Marketer must contact Marketer’s BrandWeaver representative and request that changes be made. If appropriate, BrandWeaver will make the requested changes within forty-eight (48) hours and notify Marketer that the changes have been made. Changes must be in conformity with the IO upon which the campaign was built.
4. PAYMENT AND PAYMENT LIABILITY
a. For Campaign purchases, BrandWeaver will send an invoice to Marketer as indicated on the IO. Payment is due as stated on the IO. Sources will be paid by BrandWeaver upon receipt of funds from Marketer. Any successfully invalidated or returned Records pursuant to section 4.c below that are accepted after the invoice date will be credited to Marketer’s account and applied to any outstanding amounts. If Marketer is also a Source in the Platform, BrandWeaver may credit Marketer’s account with any amount owed by BrandWeaver to Marketer through its Source account.
ii. In order for a Record to be considered invalid, Marketer must provide BrandWeaver via email with as much of the following information as possible for each returned Record: (i) specify why the Record is being returned; (ii) name of business contact; (iii) phone number of business contact; (iv) mailing address of business; (v) email address of business contact; (vi) any quality assurance notes from Marketer (e.g. “business returned the order” or “the credit card was stolen”); and (vii) if returns are based on the use of anti-fraud programs, what program Marketer is using. BrandWeaver will designate Marketer’s return as incomplete and Marketer will still be charged for all Records if Marketer fails to provide this necessary information.
iii. If a dispute over the validity of Records is not resolved within thirty (30) days, BrandWeaver may deem the questioned Records invalid or valid and accept or withdraw Records on behalf of the Marketer and/or Source. Marketer agrees that BrandWeaver has the sole and absolute final discretion to deem a Record valid or invalid.
c. Payment Liability. Marketer understands that as a technology provider, BrandWeaver has no obligations relating to payments due to any Sources, either joint or several. Marketer agrees that Marketer is solely liable for any and all charges incurred through Campaigns in the Platform created pursuant to executed IOs between the Parties. Marketer will send all payments to BrandWeaver for all valid Records based on the payment terms stated in this Agreement or any IO. BrandWeaver will withdraw its fee, if any, and thereafter timely pay Sources. Marketer agrees to protect, indemnify, defend and hold BrandWeaver and its officers, employees and agents harmless for any and all payments due by Marketer to Sources incurred through the Platform. Marketer further agrees that any dispute regarding the validity or non-payment of a Record is the sole responsibility of Marketer. Should a dispute arise regarding Marketer’s non-payment for allegedly invalid Records, the dispute is solely between Marketer and Source, and not with BrandWeaver. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the foregoing paragraph, or anywhere else in this Agreement, upon receipt of payment from Marketer, BrandWeaver will: (i) as between BrandWeaver and Marketer, become solely responsible for the prompt payment of the obligation(s) for which the amount was submitted by Marketer; (ii) hold the amount in trust for the benefit of Marketer; (iii) only pay the Source for which the payment was received; and (iv) indemnify and hold Marketer harmless from and against any and all claims, liabilities, expenses or other costs arising out of or with respect to any failure on the part of BrandWeaver to timely apply such amounts to the proper obligations. If Marketer fails to indicate for which Source or Campaign a payment has been made, Marketer understands that payments will be applied to the oldest Campaigns first.
d. Late Fees and Payments. A five percent (5%) APR will be charged to Marketer for all late payments. If payment is not made by Marketer to BrandWeaver within ninety (90) days of the initial due date, Marketer’s information may be released by BrandWeaver to Source. Both BrandWeaver and Source have the right to collect past due amounts from Marketer. Marketer agrees to pay for reasonable costs and expenses, including attorney fees, for any efforts made by BrandWeaver or Source to collect on past due undisputed amounts.
6. REPRESENTATION AND WARRANTIES

Indemnitor will have control of the defense or settlement; provided, however, that the Indemnitor shall not enter into any settlement that obligates the Indemnified Parties to take any action or incur any expense without such Indemnified Parties’ prior written consent, and further provided that the Indemnified Parties will have the right to be represented by independent counsel of their own choosing, at their own expense, in connection with such claim or suit. If the Indemnitor fails to defend such suit, then the Indemnified Parties, through counsel of their own choice, may, at the expense of the Indemnitor, conduct the defense of such claim, on the condition that the Indemnified Parties will not enter into any settlement that obligates the Indemnitor take any action or incur any expense without the Indemnitor’s prior written consent.

Rather, the invalid, illegal, or unenforceable provision shall be modified to the extent necessary so that it is valid, legal, and enforceable. A Party’s failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement shall neither be deemed a waiver of such provision nor of their right to enforce such provision. Each Party’s rights under this Agreement shall survive any termination of this Agreement. No waiver of any term or condition is valid unless in writing and signed by authorized representatives of both Parties.
c. Relationship of the Parties: Nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed as creating any agency, legal representative, partnership, or other form of joint enterprise between the Parties.
