Advertiser Terms and Conditions
This Agreement, its addenda, and amendments (collectively “Agreement”) constitutes the entire agreement between the parties, superseding all prior understandings, writings, proposals, representations or communications, oral or written and may only be modified by a written instrument executed by Client and an authorized representative of MyThings (UK) Ltd. (“Company”). Neither Client nor Company will be bound by any oral agreement or representation irrespective of by whom or when made. All notices shall be in writing and all notices and payments shall be sent to the recipient at its respective address shown on this Agreement. Neither party shall be liable for any delay or failure to perform its obligations due to any cause beyond its reasonable control. Client represents that it has the authority to enter into this Agreement and the funding necessary to pay for the services that are the subject of this Agreement. Client represents that it will provide Company necessary access to its personnel, appropriate documentation and records and facilities in order to timely perform the services that are the subject of this Agreement. Waiver of either party’s breach of any provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of any other breach. Company may elect to continue performance notwithstanding such breach by Client but such performance shall not constitute a waiver of such breach nor otherwise limit Company’s remedies. If any provision of this Agreement shall be held to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions shall continue to be valid and enforceable and, if limiting any invalid or unenforceable provision would make it enforceable, such provision shall be deemed to be written and construed in such a manner as to make it enforceable to the maximum extent allowed by law. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective successors. This Agreement may not be assigned by Client. Any headings in this Agreement are for convenience of reference only and shall not constitute a part of this Agreement. This Agreement shall not be construed more strictly against Company merely by virtue of the fact that the same has been prepared by Company or its counsel, it being recognized that Client has thoroughly read and reviewed the terms and provisions of this Agreement. The parties agree to execute such other documents as may be reasonably necessary to carry out the intent and purpose of this Agreement. Client agrees that it will be billed either according to Company’s (or other applicable publisher’s) campaign data, including but not limited to click counts, and that such data shall control for purposes of this Agreement, or if the payment model is based on the total cost, then according to such total cost as shall be determined by the Company’s records. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the substantive laws of England and Wales, except for its conflicts of laws principles. The parties agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts venued in England and Wales for any legal action arising out of this Agreement or the performance of the obligations hereunder. No action, regardless of form or basis, arising out of transactions related to this Agreement may be brought by either party more than one year after the cause of action has accrued except that an action for nonpayment may be brought within two years after receipt of the last payment by Client.
