This Arlene Terms of Service (“Agreement”) between You, a Publisher Partner, and Arlene, Inc., on behalf of itself and its affiliates (together, “Arlene”) constitutes the terms and conditions for Your use of the Arlene Marketplace service (the “Marketplace”) and/or the Arlene ad serving program (“Ad Serving Service”). The Ad Serving Service and the Marketplace are referred to collectively in this Agreement as the “Services” and individually, as a “Service.” “You” or “Your” means you or any other person or entity identified in any Service account on whose behalf you are authorized to act.
By creating any Service account via the online user interface provided by Arlene for accessing the Services (“Arlene UI”), or by otherwise accessing or using any of the Services, You agree that You have the authority to bind and You agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement. If You do not agree to the terms of this Agreement, do not create a Service account, or access or use any Service. This Agreement does not alter in any way the terms or conditions of any other agreement You may have with Arlene for products, services or otherwise.
1. Description of Services.
(a) The Marketplace allows You, as a Publisher Partner, to offer and sell elements of an application that You designate for placement of ads (“Inventory”) to any advertiser, demand side platform, advertising network or other participant in the Marketplace, which may include Arlene or its affiliates, who bids to buy Inventory listed by You via the Marketplace (“Advertising Demand Partners”). Advertising Demand Partners may display and serve their ads on Inventory made available via Your applications (collectively, “Publisher Network”), based upon the selling criteria selected by You via the Arlene UI.
(b) The Ad Serving Service allows You, as a Publisher Partner, to directly source, and provide to Arlene, ads from third-party advertisers and advertising networks (“Advertisers”), or Your own ads (collectively, “Publisher Ad(s)”) for display on the Publisher Network via the Arlene platform and services that allow for targeted delivery of ads on applications (“Arlene Platform”).
2. Marketplace Revenue Share.
Arlene will remit a percentage of the “Net Marketplace Revenue” (as defined below) that Arlene receives from the sale of Your Inventory to Advertising Demand Partners, in US Dollars. The amount resulting from applying such percentage to the Net Marketplace Revenue will be the “Revenue Share Fee.” “Net Marketplace Revenue” means fees actually collected by Arlene from Advertising Demand Partners in connection with any Demand Ads served to the Publisher Network, less any media buying fees or bid reductions, operating fees, fraud, chargebacks, refunds, uncollected amounts, credit card processing fees and other reasonable deductions. Arlene will remit to You the Revenue Share Fee within 60 days after the last day of the calendar month in which Arlene received the applicable Net Marketplace Revenue, provided that no remittances will be made for any amount less than $100 (USD) and any unpaid earnings will rollover and accrue to the next remittance period. If You are both a Marketplace customer and an Ad Serving Service customer, then, at Arlene’s election, Arlene may offset the Net Marketplace Revenue owed to You by the amount of Ad Serving Service Fees (as defined below) owed to Arlene by You. Arlene will determine how to measure the number of impressions, inquiries, conversions, clicks, offers, installations, or other actions taken by third parties in connection with Demand Ads, and all remittances will be based on Arlene’s measurements, which shall be final. “Taxes” means any and all withholding, sales, use, value added or other taxes, duties or charges that are imposed by any jurisdiction on the transactions described in this Agreement, other than taxes based on Arlene’s net income. You are responsible for all Taxes (if any) associated with the Services. Each party shall remit the amounts due after deducting any and all Taxes that may be applicable to any applicable remittances. Specifically, Arlene may deduct or withhold any withholding taxes that Arlene may be legally obligated to deduct or withhold from any amounts due to You under the Agreement, and remittance to You as reduced by such deductions or withholdings will constitute full remittance and settlement of amounts due to You under the Agreement. If a tax authority subsequently finds that Arlene’s withholding tax payment insufficient and requires additional payments, Arlene will make such payments and You will reimburse Arlene for such additional withholding tax payments, or Arlene may, at its election, deduct such amounts from amounts due to You. Within a reasonable period of time, Arlene will provide You with documentation evidencing its withholding tax payments.
3. Service Implementation.
You will (a) promptly integrate with the Publisher Network and maintain, including by updating as soon as commercially available, the then-current version of any required Service software, including, without limitation, any software development kit (“SDK”), APIs or other software (“Arlene Code”), in a manner that complies with the technical and implementation requirements provided under this Agreement or by Arlene from time to time, and (b) comply with any Service protocols and any other instructions contained in any Arlene documentation for any Service (the “Protocol”).
