Publisher's continued use of the Site after any such modification and notification thereof (which may be provided by e-mail to the email address provided in the course of Publisher's registration with Lidango) shall constitute Publisher's consent to such modification.

If Publisher accepts a Program, Publisher agrees to place that Program's advertising creative (including designated "subject" and "from" lines, the Advertiser's CAN-SPAM Act of 2003; Regulation (EU) 2016/679 [GDPR] disclosures and any other disclosures provided therein) ("Specified Advertising Materials") on Publisher's Media. Publisher shall display the Specified Advertising Materials exactly as they appear on the Site and will not alter them in any way. Failure to adhere to this requirement may, in addition to all other remedies available to Lidango, result in termination of Publisher. Lidango may terminate a Program at any time, at Lidango`s sole discretion. Lidango shall take reasonable efforts, including but not limited to e-mail communications, to notify Publisher of such termination. Lidango is responsible for displaying and administering all active Programs and tracking the payments owed.
2.2. Special Rules Governing Email Campaigns
2.2 (b). Publisher may not use an advertiser's name (including any abbreviation thereof) in the originating email address line or subject line of any email transmission.
2.2 (c). No Misleading Headers or Other Masking of E-mail Origin. An email may not include falsification of header information, false registrations for e-mail accounts or IP addresses used in connection with e-mail ads, and retransmissions of an e-mail ad for the purpose of concealing its origin. Publisher and/or their e-mail delivery providers are prohibited from relaying or retransmitting e-mails from a computer or computer network that was accessed without authorization.
2.2 (d). Subject lines may not be false or misleading such that it would likely mislead a reasonable recipient as to the contents or subject matter of the message. Publisher may only use approved Specified Advertising Materials, including subject lines available provided by Lidango or subject lines for which Publisher has documented approval from Lidango.
2.2 (e). Specified Advertising Materials consisting of e-mail messages must contain clear identification. Messages containing advertisements or solicitations must identify themselves as such, and do so by "clear and conspicuous" means, for example, by stating in the message body "This advertisement is brought to you by (Your Company)". Further, the sender must identify itself as the initiator and sender of the e-mail including company name, e-mail and physical address.
2.2 (f). Effective Method of Opting Out of Future Mailings. Senders of commercial e-mails must give recipients an effective means of requesting not to receive future e-mail ads from that sender. At a minimum, the publisher must give the recipient the ability to send a reply message to unsubscribe, opt out via postal letter and provide a functioning unsubscribe link that must remain in operation for thirty (30) days from the date of the original e-mail transmission.
2.2 (g). All unsubscribe requests must be implemented within ten (10) business days from their receipt. You may not sell or transfer an e-mail address once someone has opted out of receiving future communications, whether from only the advertiser or globally.
2.2 (h). No Random or Invalid Generation of E-mail Addresses. Publisher is responsible for knowing the source of its e-mail list. E-mail addresses may not be obtained by the use of a program for random generation of e-mail addresses, and/or "scraping" websites or online services. Publisher must have full opt-in data for all recipients in its database.
Lidango shall be constantly monitoring, on its own or with the assistance of third parties, the Publishers for compliance with these Terms and Conditions, without limiting the generality of the foregoing:
3.1. All Publishers will be monitored by Lidango (or a third party retained by Lidango for such purposes) for compliance with applicable legal requirements, with respect to honoring unsubscribe requests and compliance with the use of the Specified Advertising Materials. If the monitoring is done by a third party, such third party will share all such information with Lidango.
3.2. Each unsubscribe list furnished to a Publisher shall be separately and technologically identified so that Lidango will be able to ensure that each Publisher is not disseminating or otherwise using the unsubscribe list other than in a manner required by applicable law. Publisher must not send further e-mails to names already on or newly added to the unsubscribe list.
Lidango grants Publisher a revocable, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, non-exclusive limited license to use the Site (including any Specified Advertising Materials posted thereon) and any data, reports, information or analyses arising out of such use (the "Site Data") solely for the purpose of marketing or promoting the Programs hereunder and subject to these Terms and Conditions and the applicable Program Terms. If a Publisher also maintains its own network of publishers, such Publisher may not provide the Program to its publishers, without the prior written consent of Lidango. Under such conditions, Publisher will require its publishers to agree to and comply with these Terms and Conditions. If a Publisher fails to adhere to the foregoing requirements, in addition to any other remedies available to Lidango, Publisher shall forfeit its rights to any amounts owed by Lidango to Publisher. Publisher acknowledges and agrees that Publisher does not have, nor will it claim any right, title or interest in the Site software, applications, data, methods of doing business or any elements thereof, or any content provided on the Site (including the Specified Advertising Materials). Publisher may only access the Site via web browser, e-mail or in a manner approved by Lidango. Publisher will not attempt in any way to alter, modify, eliminate, conceal, or otherwise render inoperable or ineffective the Site tags, source codes, links, pixels, modules or other data provided by or obtained from Lidango that allows Lidango to measure ad performance and provide its service. In addition, Publisher acknowledges that all non-public information, data and reports received from Lidango hereunder or as part of the services hereunder is proprietary to and owned by Lidango. If instructed to do so by Lidango and/or if Publisher shall be terminated by Lidango, Publisher will immediately destroy and discontinue the use of any Lidango data, including Site Data, and any other material owned by Lidango or the Advertisers.
Publisher agrees that Publisher will not approach or attempt to engage in a contract with any of Lidango`s clients (each such client, individually a "Client" and all such clients, collectively "Clients") directly or indirectly via a Client's ad agency, broker or any other person or entity. Lidango will promptly reply in writing to any inquiries received from Publisher regarding the status of any person or entity as a Lidango Client so as to aid Publisher in its efforts to comply with the non-solicitation provisions of this Agreement. Because Lidango will be irreparably harmed by Publisher's conduct, and because the true extent of such harm will be impossible to quantify, monetary damages will not be an adequate remedy for any such conduct. Publisher agrees that Lidango shall be entitled to injunctive relief precluding Publisher from taking or continuing any action or conduct in violation of this provision, to be issued by any court of competent jurisdiction upon a showing of any such violative conduct by Publisher.
6. Participation in our Program
Lidango shall provide Publisher with material to create a website for the purpose of search engine optimization, or Publisher can create its own website. In either event, no website shall be released online, and non-submission, inclusion or any traffic can be sent to it, prior to Lidango`s review and approval of it. If Publisher already has its own website, Publisher's website will be subject to Lidango's review and approval. Approval shall be written or by electronic submission. All Program related websites will contain links ("Links") provided by Lidango directing traffic to product sales web pages served by Lidango. Publisher's selection of entities to be included on any such website is also subject to Lidango's review and approval, of which shall not be unreasonably withheld. Should any of Lidango's Client(s) provide content which includes imbedded bots, Data Miners, links or other creative, graphic, text or html, all content shall remain at all times the sole property of Lidango.
Publisher agrees to comply with all applicable laws and regulations, including but not limited to, those enforced by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the state attorneys general. Failure to comply with such laws and regulations will result in termination of a Publisher's account. Compliance shall be determined by Lidango at its sole discretion.
Publisher agrees to use the Links in the exact form that Lidango delivers them to Publisher. Publisher agrees not to modify, alter, delete, or adapt the Links in any manner without Lidango's written approval. Links must be served from the Lidango server, unless otherwise permitted in written form by Lidango. Publisher shall not take any actions to impede the action of or to disable any such links. Publisher agrees to, if requested by Lidango, modify or alter Links or Tracking devices in the manner requested by Lidango. Publisher further agrees that it shall in no event modify or interfere with Tracking devices unless specifically instructed to do so by Lidango in accordance with the previous sentence.
Lidango owns all rights, title, and interest to Links and user data collected and derived through the activities countenanced pursuant to this Agreement. Lidango may choose to imbed certain data mining tools within Links from time to time ("Data Miners"). Any data derived by any such Data Miner shall be the sole property of Lidango. Lidango may, from time to time, opt to share data derived from Data Miners with Publisher to help Publisher optimize the quality of leads generated from Publisher's activities or to otherwise improve the quality, functionality and mutual profitability of the activities of the parties under this Agreement. If Lidango does share data derived from Data Miners with Publisher, Publisher agrees that this data will be used solely by Publisher for the purposes for which it is provided to Publisher and will not be shared by Publisher with any other third party or entity without the written approval of Lidango. Should Lidango choose to provide advertising creative content, web design services or other web content of any type ("Web Content") to Publisher, Publisher shall use such Web Content: (i) in exactly the form that it is delivered to the Publisher by Lidango without modification unless approved by Lidango in written form; (ii) only in the manner expressly permitted by Lidango in written form and only until Lidango shall request that Publisher discontinue its use of such advertising creative, at which time Publisher shall discontinue such use within two (2) business days of being requested by Lidango to do so.
7. Deception or Fraud
Lidango actively monitors traffic for deceptive or fraudulent activity. If deception or fraud is detected as determined by Lidango sole discretion, Publisher's account will be made inactive pending further investigation. Publisher accounts are flagged that, among other things:
- Have click-through or conversion rates that are much higher than industry averages and where solid justification for such higher click-through or conversion rates is not evident to the reasonable satisfaction of Lidango;
- Have ONLY click or lead generation programs generating clicks or leads with no indication by site traffic that it can sustain the clicks or leads reported;
- Have shown fraudulent leads as determined by the Advertisers;
- Have used any incentives to procure clicks or leads
- Have provided leads obtained other than through intended consumer action. For instance, use of phone books, or similar such compilations of personal data, to complete lead generation forms shall be considered fraudulent behavior.
- Use fake redirects, automated software, and/or other fraudulent mechanisms to generate Events from the Programs.
If Publisher fraudulently adds leads or clicks or inflates leads or clicks by fraudulent traffic generation (such as pre-population of forms or mechanisms not approved by Lidango or use of sites in co-registration campaigns that have not been approved by Advertiser), as determined solely by Lidango, Publisher will forfeit its entire commission for all programs and its account will be terminated. If Publisher is notified that fraudulent activities may be occurring on its Media, and Publisher fails to take prompt action to stop the fraudulent activities, then, in addition to any other remedies available to Lidango, Publisher shall be responsible for all costs and legal fees arising from these fraudulent activities. In addition, in the event that Publisher has already received payment for fraudulent activities, Lidango reserves the right to seek credit or remedy from future earnings or to demand reimbursement from Publisher.
All the campaigns, using co-registrations will be considered as fraudulent and won't be paid.
Publisher will be paid per the terms of each Program. Lidango shall pay any amounts due approximately fifteen (15) days after the cash out request done at the platform, less any taxes required to be withheld under applicable law, provided that Lidango may, in its discretion, withhold payments until such time as the Advertiser has paid Lidango for any Program. In addition to any other remedies that may be available to Lidango, in the event of any breaches by Publisher of these Terms and Conditions, Publisher shall forfeit its rights to any amounts owed by Lidango to Publisher. Lidango reserves the right to withhold or reduce any payments owed to Publisher as a consequence of any offsets taken by Advertisers for fraudulent traffic, invalid Events, technical errors, tracking discrepancies and the like. Lidango shall compile, calculate and electronically deliver data required to determine Publisher's billing and compensation. Any questions regarding the data provided by Lidango need to be submitted in written form within ten (10) business days of receipt, otherwise the information will be deemed accurate and accepted as such by Publisher. Lidango will not pay for any Events that occur before a Program is initiated, or after a Program terminates. Invoices submitted to Lidango and payments made to Publisher shall be based on the Events as reported by Lidango. Lidango will not be responsible to compensate Publisher for Events that are not recorded due to Publisher's error.
The initial terms of this Agreement shall be for one year from the date of its first execution by the last party to so execute. Upon the one year anniversary of the execution, this Agreement shall automatically renew for successive thirty (30) day terms, unless: (a) not less than thirty (30) days prior to the date of any such automatic renewal, a party notifies the other in written form that it does not wish to renew this Agreement; or (b) this Agreement is otherwise earlier terminated pursuant to the provisions hereof.
Lidango reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to terminate a Program and remove any advertisements at any time for any reason, upon written notice to Publisher. Upon removal of any advertisements, Publisher shall terminate the Program and immediately cease emailing and any traffic involved with removed advertisement(s). Lidango also reserves the right to terminate Publisher's access to the Site at any time without notice.
Termination notice will be provided via e-mail and will be effective immediately, meaning, among other things, that Publisher must immediately cease all advertising activities. All payments then due to Publisher will be paid during the next billing cycle, provided that such money were not earned in conjunction with deceptive or fraudulent practices as determined by Lidango at its sole discretion in which case they will not be awarded. The representations, warranties and obligations contained in paragraphs, 12, 13, 14 and 15 shall remain in full force and effect after termination of this Agreement. In addition, all payment obligations accruing prior to the termination date shall survive until fully performed.
