1.12 "Subscription” means the services described in each individual Order Form.

2.1 The Service consists of the Subscription(s) agreed between the Parties.
2.2 The Service is designed to help the Customer in creating, managing and/or optimizing its advertising campaigns but the Customer remains responsible for how the Customer uses the Service and for achieving the intended goals and results of Customer's advertising campaigns. Smartly.io’s Service operates between the Customer and the Online Advertising Platform on which the advertising campaigns are being conducted, and it is the responsibility of the Customer to ensure that the output and results of the Service meet Customer's expectations and requirements.
2.3 Smartly.io is entitled to produce the Service as it deems appropriate. The Service and the Online Advertising Platform are constantly evolving and, as a result, the features made available on the Service may change. In the event of any substantial or major change to the Service, Smartly.io will inform the Customer on its website at http://smartly.io/ or via the Service (e.g., in the platform, via the knowledge base or by email to the email address on record with Smartly.io).
2.4 Smartly.io provides support as set forth in the Order Form. Customer requesting support must allow Smartly.io to access the applicable ad accounts and provide any additional information as is reasonably necessary to provide the support. As reasonably necessary to address Customer’s support request, Smartly.io's personnel may view Customer’s ad accounts, settings, and campaigns and access the specific user view of Customer’s user, to respond to the Customer's issue.

2.5 The Service does not include, and Smartly.io does not offer, any telecommunication or networking services or equipment, security services or systems, or hardware or other equipment. If Customer requires any of the foregoing, Customer must obtain such systems, services and equipment at its own expense from third party vendors.
2.6 The Customer undertakes not to use the Service for any unlawful purpose. The Customer also undertakes to comply with Smartly.io's reasonable directions and requests related to the Service.

In connection with the registration, the Customer shall authorize Smartly.io to access and use the Customer’s Online Advertising Platform accounts, ad accounts, and all the information therein as well as Online Advertising Platform accounts of Customer’s personnel using the Service to enable proper fulfillment of this Agreement. Customer shall register the Ad Accounts with the Service. Smartly.io shall confirm Customer's registration in due course after having received the registration. Unless otherwise agreed, the Customer may add and remove its Ad Accounts in the Service at any time in its sole discretion. The Customer represents and warrants that it has full rights and authority to give the Smartly.io the rights above and to register the ad accounts with the Service. For clarity, if the Customer uses the Service on behalf of a third party (e.g. its end customer), the Customer shall ensure that the aforementioned authorization and registration obligations are complied with also with respect to such third party.
4.1 Subject to the Customer’s compliance with all the terms of this Agreement, Smartly.io grants the Customer a non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited right to access and use the Service, against due payment of the applicable fees, solely in connection with the Ad Accounts in the applicable Online Advertising Platform.
4.4 If the Customer provides feedback, requests features, changes or tools, or otherwise provides comments relating to the Service or provides suggestions or ideas for improving the Service (all the aforementioned referred to as “Feedback”), notwithstanding anything stated to the contrary in this Agreement, the Customer agrees that such Feedback will be fully assigned to Smartly.io without any obligation for Smartly.io to pay separate compensation, and Smartly.io shall have the title of, and own all rights to, such Feedback and may thus use and incorporate them into its product offerings.
4.5 For the avoidance of doubt, if the Customer uses or Service includes third-party solutions for which the Customer has a direct contractual relationship with the providers of these third-party solutions (such as mobile measurement providers and analytics providers) regardless of anything to the contrary stated herein, their use shall be exclusively governed by their provider's terms and conditions in their standard form, or as negotiated between the Customer and such third party, applicable to such solutions. This Agreement does not modify or amend, and is not in lieu of, any terms, policies or rules of an Online Advertising Platform or any other third-party provider used by Customer.
5.1 Unless expressly stated otherwise in the Order Form, if the Customer has multiple Subscriptions, Smartly.io's fee percentage is based on Advertising Spend incurred under each Subscription separately and the Advertising Spend is not aggregated between Subscriptions. The fee shall be calculated and invoiced after each calendar month based on the Customer’s Advertising Spend. For the first calendar month of use (partial or not), at least a monthly minimum fee is charged. Unless otherwise expressly agreed in an Order Form, Smartly.io’s fee is a defined percentage of Customer's Advertising Spend per Ad Account(s) and a required monthly minimum fee that are both set forth in the price list made publicly available at http://smartly.io/pricing. The fee shall be calculated and invoiced after each calendar month based on the Customer’s Advertising Spend. For the first calendar month of use (partial or not), at least a monthly minimum fee is charged.
5.2 If the Agreement is terminated as described hereinafter in Section 9, for the last month of use, at least a monthly minimum fee is charged if the Agreement had terminated before the end of the calendar month.
5.3 Unless explicitly stated to the contrary in the Order Form, Smartly.io may change the pricing from time to time upon thirty (30) days prior written notice (email being sufficient). The change shall not affect the fees for invoicing periods commenced before the effective date of the change. In case of a price change, the Customer shall be entitled to terminate this Agreement to end on the effective date of the price change by notifying Smartly.io thereof in writing.
5.4 The fees for the Service are invoiced monthly in arrears via credit card or invoice, depending on the payment method offered by Smartly.io at the time and chosen by the Customer. Customer shall remit payment thirty (30) days net from the date of the invoice. Interest on delayed payments accrues at 12% per annum or the maximum legal interest rate for late payment, whichever is less. The Customer is liable to pay Smartly.io’s reasonable expenses and fees relating to collection of late payments. Customer shall provide Smartly.io with correct invoicing information (including without limitation any purchase order numbers) by the last business day before the end of the invoiced calendar month and must ensure that Customer’s invoicing information remains correct and up to date. If Customer in good faith believes that Smartly.io has charged Customer incorrectly, Customer shall contact Smartly.io in writing no later than ten (10) business days after the date of the first invoice in which the error appeared, in order to receive an adjustment or credit.
5.5 The fees are exclusive of VAT and any other governmental taxes and levies. However, to the extent that any US state sales tax is applicable, Smartly.io shall add the applicable sales tax amount directly to the invoice. Except with respect to sales/use taxes in the US that Smartly.io is lawfully obligated to charge, the Customer shall be solely responsible for VAT and other taxes and levies imposed on the Customer by applicable laws and authorities in relation to the fees. The Customer shall be solely responsible for VAT and other taxes and levies imposed on the Customer by applicable laws and authorities in relation to the fees and shall without undue delay after Smartly.io’s request provide Smartly.io with a tax certificate or any other such document, proof or certificate in order to process any refunds Smartly.io is entitled to under applicable laws and the Customer shall carry all the costs and expenses incurred by Smartly.io due to Customer failing to comply with this obligation.
6.1 Smartly.io makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the Smartly.io Software will be available for use on a 24/7 basis excluding temporary maintenance, updating and repairs. Smartly.io does not assume any liability for usage interruptions, breaks or errors, but it endeavours to inform the Customer of any issues with the Smartly.io Software whenever reasonably possible.
6.2 Smartly.io will provide the Service in a good and workmanlike manner and in accordance with the applicable industry practices and standards. Smartly.io does not warrant that the Service will be uninterrupted or error-free. However, Smartly.io agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to be available to support the Customer and to correct any material error or deficiency in the Service.
6.4 The Customer acknowledges that the use of the Service is dependent on the applicable Online Advertising Platform in which Customer's advertising campaigns are carried out and that the actions of the Customer and third-party solution providers may also affect the use of the Service. Customer is responsible for accepting and complying with any agreements, terms, policies and guidelines of Online Advertising Platforms and third-party solution providers it uses in connection with the Service. Smartly.io does not accept any liability for the operation and function of any Customer or third-party products, services, actions or omissions, including but not limited to, those of third-party solution providers, the Online Advertising Platforms or any third party that operates in or with the applicable Online Advertising Platform.
6.5 TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY MANDATORY LAW, SMARTLY.IO DOES NOT HAVE ANY OTHER RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY FOR THE SERVICE. THE SERVICE IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" AND SMARTLY.IO EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT, CORRECTNESS AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
7.1 Smartly.io will defend or settle any third party claim made against the Customer alleging that the (i) Smartly.io Software; (ii) Smartly.io-owned part of the Deliverables prepared by Smartly.io for the Customer under the Creative Service; or (iii) actions of Smartly.io under the Managed Service for which Smartly.io is responsible under the Agreement, infringes a third party intellectual property right. Customer agrees i) to promptly notify Smartly.io in writing of any such claim, ii) to allow Smartly.io to have sole control over the defence, litigation and/or settlement of any such claim and iii) to cooperate with Smartly.io in the investigation, defence and settlement thereof. Smartly.io shall indemnify Customer for such claim by paying the costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees Customer incurs as a result of such claim, including damages awarded to such third party in a judgment finally awarded against Customer or settlement approved by Smartly.io. If such claim is made or, in Smartly.io's opinion, is likely to be made, then Smartly.io may, at its sole discretion, (i) modify the Service or if it’s not commercially reasonable for Smartly.io to modify the Service, (ii) terminate the Service and/or the Agreement with immediate effect. Smartly.io shall have no obligations under this Section 7.1 to the extent any infringement claim arises from: a) the Customer’s combination of the Service or Smartly.io Software with other software or services or Customer’s modification to any part of the Service or Customer’s violation of Section 4.2 if such claim would not have been made but for Customer’s combination or modification or Customer’s violation of Section 4.2; or b) information or materials provided by the Customer and used by Smartly.io for the performance of the Service in accordance with this Agreement or c) the Customer Content. In no event shall the termination of the Service or the Agreement due to infringement relieve Smartly.io from its obligation to defend and indemnify Customer as set forth herein. Smartly.io shall not settle any claim on behalf of Customer without Customer’s prior written consent if the settlement requires any admission of fault by Customer.
7.3 The foregoing remedies constitute Customer’s sole and exclusive remedies and Smartly.io’s entire liability with respect to third party infringement claims.

8.2 Notwithstanding the confidentiality provisions, Smartly.io may collect, use and analyse the Customer’s advertising spend data, settings and trends but may only disclose this Customer data if the data is de-identified or if it is not attributable to any individual or company.

8.3 Receiving Party shall promptly upon termination of the Agreement cease using the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information and has no longer an obligation to store Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information. Disclosing Party has the right at any time to request the Receiving Party to have the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information deleted and the Receiving Party is obliged to comply with such request without undue delay. Each Party shall, however, be entitled to retain the copies required by law or regulations and Smartly.io may continue the use of information as permitted under Section 8.2.
