Terms and Conditions
Admanage, S.A. Advertising Program Terms
These Admanage, S.A. Advertising Program Terms ("Terms" or “Agreement”) are entered into between you and Admanage, S.A., a Costa Rican corporation, and its subsidiaries and affiliated entities (collectively, "Admanage”), and govern your use of and participation in the Admanage pay-per-click advertising program (collectively, the "Program").
"You" or "Advertiser" means the individual or entity which signs these Terms or any document that references these Terms or that accepts these Terms electronically, and/or any agency acting on such individual’s or entity’s, which shall also be bound by these Terms.
Please read this Agreement carefully. By enrolling as an Advertiser, you agree to be bound by this Agreement, whether you or your principal are acting on your behalf or on behalf of a third party, including an advertiser, and that if you are acting on behalf of a third party, that you have authority to act on behalf of that third party and that they have agreed to be subject to and to abide by the terms of this Agreement. You further agree that any of your agents, representatives, employees, or any person or entity acting on your behalf with respect to the use of the Program will be subject to and will abide by this Agreement.
2. AUTHORIZED USES
The Program enables you to select keyword or category targets (“Keywords”) that are matched to an internet user who enters in the same or similar Keywords via search boxes, intext ad bubbles, CPC banners as well as other methods utilized by the Program. Once your Keyword is matched to an end user, your advertisement or link to your website (the “Ad”) will be displayed, along with other search results where applicable on the screen of an end user’s computer while connected to the Internet or may display your Ad on the website of a third party. You agree that Admanage may display your Ad on: (i) any computer that has installed Admanage’s software application for the display of Ads (the “Admanage Application”); (ii) any computer that has installed a third party software application for the display of ads (the “Partner Application”) and that displays your Ad as a result of an agreement between Admanage and a third party (each, a “Partner”); or (iii) a third party web site maintained by a Partner (“Partner Web sites”). Unless otherwise agreed to in writing by Admanage, Admanage reserves the right to, and in its sole discretion may, at any time reject, modify or remove any Ad. The Partners may also have certain rights allowing them to reject, modify or withdraw Ads placed on the Partner Application or Partner Web sites. No liability of Admanage and/or any Partner shall result from any such decision.
3. COMMUNICATIONS SOLELY WITH ADMANAGE
Even if your Ad(s) are placed on a Partner Application or Partner Website, you agree to direct to Admanage, and not to any Partner, any communication regarding your Ad(s) on any Partner Application or Partner Website.
4. RESPONSIBILITIES OF PARTIES
You are solely responsible for the selection of all keywords, categories, and other targeting mechanism that are used by the Program to trigger the display of your Ad (collectively, “Targets”), for the content of your Ad, for any items linked to your Ad and for all transactions with, or information provided to, end users through your Ads.
It is your responsibility to manage the campaigns purchased in or through the Program (the “Campaigns”). If you use the Program to generate sales on any websites, Admanage doesn't guarantee that the Program will generate any sales on such websites. Admanage’s responsibility is limited to sending potential customers, as defined by Advertiser who is solely responsible for choosing the Targets.
With respect to online auction-based advertising, Admanage may (but is not obligated to) send you an email notifying you that you have 72 hours ("Modification Period") to modify keywords and settings as posted. The account (as modified by you, or if not modified, as initially posted) is deemed approved by you in all respects after the Modification Period. You agree that all placements of your Ads shall conclusively be deemed to have been approved by you. With respect to all other advertising, you must provide Admanage with all relevant Targets by the applicable due date as set forth on Admanage’s website or as otherwise communicated by Admanage.
Admanage may modify any of the Program at any time without liability. Admanage also may modify these Terms at any time without liability, and Advertiser’s use of the Program after notice that these Terms have changed constitutes Advertiser’s acceptance of the new Terms. Admanage or Partners may reject or remove any Ad or Target for any or no reason.
If you require the help or involvement of Admanage employees or agents to manage the Campaigns, you will not hold Admanage and/or such employees or agents responsible if the results of the Campaigns are not satisfactory to you. It is your responsibility to verify that the Campaigns are setup properly and in a satisfactory manner in the Program.
You are responsible for understanding the process and workings of the Program.

This Agreement shall be construed as if both parties jointly wrote it. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of California, without reference to any conflict of laws principles. ALL CLAIMS ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE PROGRAM SHALL BE LITIGATED EXCLUSIVELY IN THE FEDERAL OR STATE COURT OF ORANGE COUNTY IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA AND ADMANAGE AND ADVERTISER CONSENT TO JURISDICTION IN THOSE COURTS. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter contained herein and supersedes all previous and contemporaneous agreements, proposals, and communications, written or oral, between you and Admanage. Only a written instrument executed by the party waiving compliance with this Agreement may waive the terms or covenants of this Agreement. YOU AGREE THAT ANY TERMS THAT APPLY TO USERS OF YOUR WEBSITES OR ADVERTISEMENTS, WILL NOT SUPERSEDE, ALTER, OR AFFECT THESE TERMS.

This Agreement is not intended to benefit, nor will it be deemed to give rise to, any rights in any third party, except as specifically set forth in this Agreement. Admanage may change this Agreement at any time upon notice published on the Admanage website or by e-mail notification to you. Any use of the Program or any of Admanage's websites after such notice will be deemed to be continued acceptance of this Agreement, including its amendments and modifications. Admanage reserves the right to discontinue offering the Program at any time. Admanage will have no liability hereunder by reason of any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations on account of strikes, shortages, riots, acts of terrorism, insurrection, fires, flood, storm, explosions, earthquakes, internet outages, computer virus, acts of god, war, governmental action, or any other cause that is beyond Admanage's reasonable control. Advertiser may not assign any of Advertiser’s rights hereunder and any such attempt is void. Advertiser and Admanage and Admanage and Partners are not legal partners or agents, but are independent contractors. In the event that these Terms or a Program expire or is terminated, Admanage shall not be obligated to return any materials to Advertiser. Notice to Advertiser may be effected by sending an email to the email address specified in Advertiser’s account, or by posting a message to Advertiser’s account interface, and is deemed received when sent (for email) or no more than 3 days after having been posted (for messages in Advertiser’s account interface).
