(a) failure to pay for the Services;
(c) failure to perform the Services due to lack of Campaign Details, information or inaccurate information provided by the Client;
(d) software or technology malfunction of ContentiQ or the CDN or the Publisher Website;
(e) maintenance and up-gradation of ContentiQ or CDN or the Publishers Website and any additional software used by Zirca;
(f) failure or delay due to reasons beyond the control of Zirca or attributable to the third-parties for managing the Campaign; and
(g) occurrence of a Force Majeure Event.
a. BILLING AND PAYMENT METHOD. When the Client supplies Zirca with a method of payment such as a credit card, charge card, or bank account (“Payment Method”) in connection with the Performance of Service, the Client is said to participate in the “Payment Method Program” and the Client authorizes Zirca to bill its Payment Method pursuant to these Payment Method Program Terms for any and all charges and fees the Client incurs in connection with that Service, including recurring payments. The types of Payment Methods that Zirca accepts and the timing of the billing of the charges and fees may vary according to the Service; however, Zirca does not knowingly accept debit cards and the Client should not provide a debit card as a form of payment. The terms of Payment Method are determined by an agreement(s) between the Client and its financial institution.
b. AUTHORIZATION. The Client agrees to keep its Payment Method information on file with Zirca, current (such as its address, card or account number, and expiration date, if any), and the Client also authorizes Zirca to update its Payment Method information with data Zirca obtains from the Client’s financial institution, the issuer of the Client’s credit card or charge card, or from MasterCard or Visa. The Client authorizes Zirca to retain the Client’s Payment Method information until such time as the Client explicitly revokes this authorization in accordance with procedures prescribed by Zirca. Any revocation by the Client of this authorization will become effective: (a) if the Client’s Payment Method is a credit or charge card, when all charges and fees associated with the Client’s use of the Service have been fully satisfied, as determined by Zirca; or (b) if the Client’s Payment Method is a bank account, after three (3) business days. The Client’s revocation of this authorization will have no effect on its liability for charges and fees that it have incurred in connection with its use of a Service prior to such revocation.
d. TYPES OF PAYMENT PLANS. “Monthly Payment Plan”: Under the Monthly Payment Plan, the Client preauthorizes Zirca to periodically bill the Client’s Payment Method on a recurring basis for the amount the Client specifies. The Client’s Payment Method will automatically be billed with the preauthorized amount whenever its account has fewer than approximately the prior three (3) days’ worth of charges remaining, as determined by Zirca. The preauthorized amount then will be credited to the Client’s account and, after any debit balance that the Client may have incurred for charges in excess of the amount the Client have preauthorized is first deducted, the balance will be available to pay for future charges and fees; thus, while the amount charged to the Client’s Payment Method will remain the same throughout the term of its participation in the Monthly Payment Plan, the amount actually available in the Client’s account to pay for future charges and fees will vary depending upon the charges and fees it have incurred.
e. Taxation: The Client shall alone be responsible for the payment of all applicable taxes levied in any manner by any competent authority on all the payments made by either of them to Zirca and / or to the Publishers to avail of the Services provided by Zirca in terms hereof.
f. Notwithstanding the foregoing but without derogating therefrom, in the case of a Self- Served Campaign, certain CDNs (such as Outbrain, and Revcontent, or those CDNs, which require the payment to be made to them directly), the Client shall upload its credit card / payment details directly on the websites of such CDNs and the Client will be charged based on the internal payment policies of these CDNs. In all other cases (for example: Yahoo, Taboola and Colombia), the Client shall be required to make payment to Zirca in any of the foregoing methods as set out in 3.2 above, either on a monthly basis or on a campaign basis, as the case may be.
g. Without derogating from the above for all Self Served Campaigns :
(i) When an Advertiser/Agency directly pays for the campaign to the CDN’s and ContentiQ retrieves this information from the CDN through its API, ContentiQ will bill the Advertiser a percentage of all the Campaign spends on the CDN’s, as its fees.
(ii) Where an Advertiser pays directly for the Campaign to the CDN’s but the information about such Campaign spends is not retrieved by ContentiQ, the Advertiser shall have the option to upload an excel file containing the Campaign spends on ContentiQ to analyse the performance of the Campaign. In such event, ContentiQ shall charge a percentage of the Campaign spends as its fee.
(iii) Where an Advertiser manages its Campaign on a particular CDN through ContentiQ, ContentiQ will bill the Advertiser for the Campaign purchased on a CDN, a percentage of all the Campaign spends on such CDNs, as its fee.
(iv) Where the Advertiser/Client uses ContentiQ only to view the performance of the Campaign by uploading Campaign Data on ContentiQ manually or through the API, ContentiQ will charge a percentage of the Campaign spends/flat fee.
h. For all Managed Service Campaigns, ContentiQ shall purchase media/inventory on behalf of the Advertisers/Agencies on various CDN’s to optimize the Campaign, and the Advertiser / Agencies / Client will be charged as agreed in the Insertion Order (IO) at the end of a Campaign or the end of a month, whichever is earlier, and which shall be based on Cost Per Click or Cost Per Lead.
