- Healthcare Huddle
- Standard Advertising Terms
These HH Standard Ad Terms, together with the applicable Advertising Insertion Order executed by an advertiser (“Advertiser”), collectively makes up an agreement (this “Agreement” or this “IO”), between such Advertiser and Huddle Media LLC (also known as Healthcare Huddle, “HH”, “Media Company” or “Publisher”).
These HH Standard Ad Terms, and therefore, this Agreement, incorporate by reference the IAB-AAAA Standard Ad Terms version 3 (the “IAB-AAAA Terms”), which can be found here: http://www.iab.net/media/file/IAB_4As-tsandcs-FINAL.pdf as modified by the additional terms and conditions herein. Capitalized terms used herein that are not defined have the meaning set forth in the IAB-AAA Terms. In the event of conflict between the IAB-AAAA Terms and the terms herein, the terms herein shall control.
Agency Terms. If an advertising agency representing the Advertiser enters this Agreement on behalf of any Advertiser, then such Agency represents and warrants that it is authorized to enter into the Agreement on behalf of Advertiser and that the Agreement is fully binding on Advertiser. If an Advertiser enters into the IO directly, without a separate ad agency, then all of the obligations of “Agency” in the IAB-AAAA Terms will be deemed instead to be obligations of Advertiser, if and as applicable.
Delivery. Publisher has the right to optimize campaigns for purposes of seeking better performance, even if optimization may result in uneven delivery of inventory. In the event that actual Deliverables for any campaign fall below (or are expected to fall below) guaranteed levels (if any), Publisher’s liability, if any, will be limited to Publisher, as it determines in its discretion, providing makegoods (which may include an extension of service until the guaranteed delivery volume has been achieved, or substitution with alternate promotions having similar overall value). Any credit provided to Advertiser that has not been used by the date that is 12 months after the date on which the credit is first earned will be forfeited. Publisher will not in any event have any liability with respect to any under-delivery that is due to late delivery by Advertiser or Agency of any Ad, creative, copy or other material or to any other failure or delay by Advertiser or Agency. Publisher has the right in its discretion to refuse to run or remove any Ad at any time.
Sponsored Content and Native Ads. As used herein, “Native Advertising” shall mean any paid content or advertising that bears a similarity to news, feature articles, product reviews, entertainment, or other editorial or unpaid content or materials surrounding it. Each party represents, warrants and covenants that it will require all materials provided pursuant to this Agreement to distinguish between paid and editorial content and otherwise comply with the FTC rules and guidelines regarding Native Advertising (the “FTC Guidelines”) including without limitation, those described here https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/guidance/ftcs-endorsement-guides-what-people-are-asking).
Changes to IAB-AAAA Terms. Sections II.b. and V.a (except subsection iv) of the IAB-AAAA Terms will not apply with respect to this IO. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in the IAB-AAAA Terms, Publisher may use commercially reasonable efforts to, but cannot guarantee, any requirements purporting to require Publisher to (i) comply with any Editorial Adjacency Guidelines; (ii) detect and prevent fraudulent traffic; (iii) place Ads on sites targeting a USA based audience (but it not responsible for filtering out any non-USA based traffic nor reducing impressions or payments as a result thereof); (iv) comply with any restrictions, requests or policies with respect to DMA or Geographic limits, Audience Guarantees, Viewability, Third Party Ad Server Policies, Programmatic, Real Time Bidding, Biddable Deliverables, and/or Tolerance Ranges, Ad Tags, and other similar restrictions, requests or policies (collectively, clauses (i) through (iv), “Offending Impressions”); and in the event of any alleged or suspected Offending Impressions, the sole remedy of the parties is to discuss and endeavor in good faith to find a mutually agreeable solution. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, including in the IAB-AAAA Terms, in the event of any discrepancy between ad serving numbers or traffic reports, Publisher’s numbers shall govern unless otherwise mutually agreed; provided that the parties shall discuss and endeavor in good faith to find a mutually agreeable solution. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in the IAB-AAAA Terms, Agency and Advertiser are jointly and severally responsible for the payment of all amounts due for advertising published by Publisher pursuant to this IO. For purposes of Section XIV.d. of the IAB-AAAA Terms, the Agreement will be governed by the laws of the State of New York, and any claims, legal proceedings, or litigation arising in connection with this IO will be brought solely in courts located in New York, New York, and the parties consent to the jurisdiction of such courts.
