TERMS OF SERVICE
Last Updated: July 19, 2011
These Online Terms of Service govern your participation in ADLY's ("ADLY," "we," "us") advertising program (each a "Program" and collectively, the "Programs") and, as applicable, any insertion orders or service agreements (an "IO") related to any Program, your online management of any Program, use of the ADLY website located at http://adly.com (each a "Site"), and any products you purchase through our Sites. These Terms of Service are referred to as the "Agreement."
We reserve the right at any time to:
- Change the terms and conditions of this Agreement;
- Change the Sites, including eliminating or discontinuing any Program thereon or feature thereof; or
- Change any fees or charges for Programs.
Any changes we make will be effective immediately upon notice, which we may provide by any means including, without limitation, posting on the Sites. We indicate at the top of the page when this Agreement was last updated. Your continued use of the Sites following such changes will be deemed acceptance of such changes. Be sure to return to this page periodically to ensure familiarity with the most current version of this Agreement. Upon our request, you agree to sign a non-electronic version of this Agreement.
ADLY reserves the right to deny, in its sole discretion, your access to your Account and/or the Sites without notice for and/or any or no reason (including, without limitation, for violation of this Agreement).
Individuals under the age of 18 are prohibited from registering or otherwise participating in the Sites or any Program.
- Advertisers. If you are an advertiser, and become a party to one or more ADLY insertion orders (each, an "IO"), then – in addition to the terms of this Agreement – you will be subject to the terms of each IO.
- Celebrities. If you are a Celebrity, you must register with ADLY, create a Celebrity Account, and agree to our Celebrity Terms of Service. Your participation as a Celebrity is subject to ADLY's approval, which approval may be withheld in ADLY's sole discretion.
- Establishing an Account. When and if you register an account as a Celebrity (an "Account"), you agree to (a) provide accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by our registration form (including your email address) and (b) maintain and update your information (including your email address) to keep it accurate, current and complete. You acknowledge that if any information provided by you is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, you will have materially breached this Agreement, and ADLY reserves the right to terminate this Agreement and your use of the Sites. As part of the registration process, you will be asked to provide a username (which is your email address) and password that are unique to the Account (collectively referred to hereunder as "Login Information"). You will be responsible for the confidentiality and use of your Login Information and agree not to transfer or resell your use of or access to the Sites to any third party other than your appointed agent, manager or other staff member to whom you assign such responsibility. If you have reason to believe that your Account is no longer secure, you must immediately notify us of the problem by emailing us at email@example.com Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, you acknowledge and agree that you shall have no ownership or other property interest in the Account, and you further acknowledge and agree that all rights in and to the Account are and shall forever be owned by and inure to the benefit of ADLY. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your username and password and for any and all activities (including Programs) that are conducted through your account.
- Publisher Payouts. ADLY will initiate payments to Celebrity Publishers only once ADLY has received payment from the Advertiser for the campaign in which Publisher has participated.

ADLY MAY SUSPEND, TERMINATE, MODIFY OR DELETE YOUR ACCOUNT, AND/OR TERMINATE OR SUSPEND YOUR ACCESS TO THE SITES AT ANY TIME WITH ANY REASON OR NO REASON, WITH OR WITHOUT NOTICE, WITHOUT ANY LIABILITY TO YOU WHATSOEVER. For purposes of explanation and not limitation, most Account and/or Site suspensions, terminations and/or deletions are the result of violations of this Agreement or other ADLY policies. You acknowledge and agree that ADLY is not required to provide you notice before terminating or suspending your Account, and/or your access to the Sites. In addition to the foregoing, ADLY may, in addition to any of its other rights and remedies it may have against you at law or in equity, immediately with or without notice to you, cease the distribution, display or other exploitation of any Advertiser Materials which ADLY believes contains any Prohibited Conduct (defined in Section 7 below) without any liability to you of any kind.

- Limitations on Your Use of the Sites.
(a)You agree that you will not (i) engage in any activity designed to generate automated, fraudulent or otherwise invalid impressions, inquiries, conversions, clicks or other actions that would increase impressions, page views or click-throughs (including but not limited to incentivized, computerized or otherwise deceptive or artificial means), or the provision of false lead information or multiple leads from a single individual ("Fraudulent Activity"); (ii) use any automated means or form of scraping or data extraction to access, query or otherwise collect ADLY advertising related information from any Program website or property except as expressly permitted by ADLY; or (iii) provide to ADLY submit, publish or link to any Advertiser Materials that contain, endorse, promote, advertise or consist of Prohibited Conduct.

You agree that you will not violate any applicable law, rule or regulation in connection with your use of the Sites.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT ANY APPLICABLE FEES AND OTHER CHARGES FOR FEE-BASED SERVICES ARE NOT REFUNDABLE IN WHOLE OR IN PART. YOU ARE FULLY LIABLE FOR ALL CHARGES TO YOUR ACCOUNT, INCLUDING ANY UNAUTHORIZED CHARGES.
- Product Descriptions. ADLY attempts to be as accurate as possible with the descriptions of the products it offers through celebrity endorsements. However, ADLY does not warrant that product descriptions are accurate, complete, reliable, current, or error-free. If a product offered by ADLY is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in unused condition.
- Product Pricing. Except where noted otherwise, the list price displayed for products on these Sites or through celebrity product offerings represents the retail price listed on the product itself, suggested by the manufacturer or supplier, or the estimated retail value for a comparably featured item offered elsewhere. Where an item is offered for sale by one of our merchants, the list price may be provided by the merchant. Your purchases are charged at the time you place your order. Despite our best efforts, a small number of the items we sell may be mispriced. If an item’s correct price is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation.
- Ownership and Restrictions on Use. The Sites are owned and operated by ADLY in conjunction with others pursuant to contractual arrangements, and all rights and title in and to the Sites, including, without limitation, any and all user accounts, titles, computer codes, dialogue, catch phrases, locations, concepts, artwork, animations, sounds, musical compositions, audio-visual effects, methods of operation, moral rights, any related documentation, "applets," transcripts, profile information, and the Server software, and any intellectual property and other rights relating thereto, are and will remain the property of ADLY and its licensors and suppliers. The Sites, and the selection, compilation, collection, arrangement and assembly thereof, are protected by United States and international copyright, trademark and other laws, and you acknowledge that these rights are valid and enforceable. The Sites may contain licensed materials, and ADLY's licensor may enforce their rights in the event of any violation of this Agreement.
The trademarks, logos and service marks displayed on the ADLY sites (collectively the "ADLY Marks") are the registered and unregistered trademarks of ADLY, ADLY's licensors and suppliers, and others. ADLY Marks, whether registered or unregistered, may not be used in connection with any product or service that is not ADLY's, in any manner that is likely to cause confusion with customers, or in any manner that disparages ADLY or LOOSKY. Nothing contained on the Sites should be construed as granting, by implication, estoppel or otherwise, any license or right to use any ADLY Mark without the express written permission of ADLY, ADLY's licensors or suppliers, or the third party owner of any such ADLY Mark. Misuse of any ADLY Mark is prohibited, and ADLY will aggressively enforce its intellectual property rights in such ADLY Marks, including via civil and criminal proceedings.
- Access By Minors. Pursuant to 47 U.S.C. Section 230 (d), as amended, we hereby notify you that parental control protections (such as computer hardware, software or filtering services) are commercially available that may assist you in limiting access to material that is harmful to minors. Information identifying current providers of such protections is available on the two websites GetNetWise (http://kids.getnetwise.org/) and OnGuard Online (http://onguardonline.gov/). Please note that ADLY does not endorse any of the products or services listed at such sites.
ADLY exclusively owns all data generated by, or collected in connection with, the display, delivery and performance of Programs, including, without limitation, any data pertaining to impressions, click-through rates, conversions and any other data derived by ADLY ("ADLY Data"). Without limiting the foregoing, you shall not make any use of, copy, or make derivative works from ADLY Data, or sell, transfer, lease, assign, redistribute, disclose, disseminate, or otherwise make available in any manner ADLY Data (including without limitation any portion thereof) to any third-party. You acknowledge, for the avoidance of doubt, that ADLY receives non-personally identifiable data (e.g. IP addresses, cookie information) in connection with serving Programs which shall also be ADLY Data, and ADLY may use such non-personally identifiable data concerning individual consumers of the Advertiser Website(s) (including without limitation specific pages thereof) for any purpose whatsoever, including to help target Programs to those consumers.

In addition, we reserve the right to immediately terminate this Agreement, and/or your access to and use of the Sites, or any portion thereof, at any time and for any reason, with or without cause. Upon termination of this Agreement by either party, your right to use the Sites shall immediately cease.
- Mutual Warranties. Each Party represents and warrants to the other that (i) it has the full right, power, legal capacity, and authority to enter into, deliver and fully perform under this Agreement; (ii) neither the execution, delivery, nor performance of this Agreement will result in a violation or breach of any contract, agreement, order, judgment, decree, rule, regulation or law to which such Party is bound; and (iii) such Party acknowledges that the other Party makes no representations, warranties, or agreements related to the subject matter hereof that are not expressly provided for in this Agreement.

APPLICABLE LAW MAY NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

YOU ASSUME ALL RESPONSIBILITY AND RISK FOR YOUR USE OF THE SITES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ALL COMMUNICATION FEATURES OF THE SITES, AND YOUR RELIANCE THEREON. NO OPINION, ADVICE OR STATEMENT OF ANY OF THE ADLY PARTIES, USERS OR VISITORS, WHETHER MADE ON THE SITES OR OTHERWISE, SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY. YOUR USE OF THE SITES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ALL COMMUNICATION FEATURES OF THE SITES, ANY MATERIALS PROVIDED THROUGH THE SITES, AND ANY LINKED SITES ARE ENTIRELY AT YOUR OWN RISK.
A possibility exists that the Sites could include inaccuracies or errors, or information or materials that violate this Agreement. Additionally, a possibility exists that unauthorized alterations could be made by third parties to the Sites. Although we attempt to ensure the integrity of the Sites, we make no guarantees as to the Sites' completeness or correctness. In the event that a situation arises in which the Sites' completeness or correctness is in question, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with, if possible, a description of the material to be checked and the location (URL) where such material can be found on the Sites, as well as information sufficient to enable us to contact you. We will try to address your concerns as soon as reasonably practicable.
- Limitation of Liability. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT NONE OF THE ADLY PARTIES ARE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE OR OTHER DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS, LOSS OF DATA OR LOST PROFITS), UNDER ANY CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY OR OTHER THEORY ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THE SITES, ANY LINKED SITES OR ANY OTHER PRODUCT OR SERVICE PURCHASED OR PROVIDED THROUGH THE SITES. YOUR SOLE REMEDY FOR DISSATISFACTION WITH THE SITES OR ANY LINKED SITE IS TO STOP USING THE SITES OR LINKED SITES, AS APPLICABLE, AND TO CANCEL YOUR ACCOUNT(S). IN NO EVENT SHALL ADLY'S TOTAL OBLIGATIONS OR LIABILITY HEREUNDER EXCEED THE LESSER OF THE SPECIFIC PROGRAM IN QUESTION AND TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS ($10,000.00). REGARDLESS OF ANY LAW TO THE CONTRARY, NO ACTION, SUIT OR PROCEEDING SHALL BE BROUGHT AGAINST ADLY MORE THAN ONE (1) YEAR AFTER THE DATE UPON WHICH THE CLAIM AROSE.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ADLY HAS AGREED TO PRICING IN RELIANCE UPON THE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY AND THE DISCLAIMERS OF WARRANTIES AND DAMAGES SET FORTH HEREIN, AND THAT THESE CONSIDERATIONS FORM AN ESSENTIAL BASIS OF THE BARGAIN BETWEEN THE PARTIES. YOU AGREE THAT THE LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS OF LIABILITY AND DISCLAIMERS SPECIFIED IN THESE TERMS WILL SURVIVE AND APPLY EVEN IF FOUND TO HAVE FAILED OF THEIR ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. TO THE LIMITED EXTENT THAT SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES OR LIABILITIES, CERTAIN OF THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. IN SUCH STATES, THE LIABILITY OF ADLY AND THE OTHER ADLY PARTIES SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
By You. You agree to indemnify, defend and hold the ADLY Parties, harmless from and against any and all claims, actions, liabilities, losses, expenses, damages, and costs (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees, collectively, "Claims") that may at any time be incurred by reason of any threatened or filed claims, suits or proceedings (a) for libel, defamation, violation of right of privacy or publicity, breach of contract, copyright infringement, trademark infringement or other infringement of any third party right, fraud, false advertising, misrepresentation, product liability or violation of any law, statute, ordinance, rule or regulation in connection with your performance under this Agreement; (b) arising out of any breach or alleged breach by you of any term, condition, representation or warranty under this Agreement or any other agreement with ADLY; or (c) relating to a contaminated file, virus, worm, or Trojan horse originating from you.

Indemnification Procedures. Any claim for indemnification hereunder shall be subject to the following provisions: (x) the indemnifying Party shall be given prompt written notice of the claim by the indemnified Party, provided that any delay in providing notice shall not relieve the indemnifying Party of its indemnity obligations under this Agreement unless, and only to the extent, the indemnifying Party was prejudiced by the delay; (y) the indemnifying Party shall have the right to control the defense and all negotiations relative to the settlement of any such claim, provided that no settlement admitting liability on the part of the indemnified Party may be made without the express written consent of the indemnified Party; and (z) the indemnified Party shall reasonably cooperate with the indemnifying Party and its counsel at the indemnifying Party's cost and expense.
- Questions. The Sites are provided by ADLY Inc. If you have any questions, comments or complaints regarding this Agreement and/or the Sites, feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
- Notice for California Users. Under California Civil Code Section 1789.3, California Site users are entitled to the following specific consumer rights notice: The Complaint Assistance Unit of the Division of Consumer Services of the California Department of Consumer Affairs may be contacted in writing at 400 R Street, Suite 1080, Sacramento, California 95814, or by telephone at (916) 445-1254 or (800) 952-5210.
- Force Majeure. ADLY shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform its obligations hereunder if such delay or failure is due to unforeseen circumstances or causes beyond ADLY's control, such as acts of God, acts of any governmental body, war, insurrection, sabotage, terrorism, riots, embargoes, fire, floods, accidents, strikes or other labor disturbances, interruption of or delay in transportation, unavailability of, interruption of or delay in telecommunications or third party services, or inability to obtain fuel, energy, or other raw materials, supplies or power used in or equipment needed for provision of the Sites.
- Arbitration; Governing Law; Forum. Before initiating any lawsuit or arbitration proceeding against us, you and ADLY agree to first attempt to informally negotiate any dispute, controversy or claim related to this Agreement (a “Claim”) for at least thirty (30) days. This agreement does not apply to (i) any Claims seeking to enforce or protect, or concerning the validity of, any of your or ADLY's intellectual property rights; (ii) any Claim related to, or arising from, allegations of theft, piracy, invasion of privacy or unauthorized use; (iii) any claim for equitable relief, or (iv) an individual action in small claims court for Claims that are within the scope of such courts' jurisdiction. Negotiations will begin upon written notice. ADLY will send its notice to your billing address and email you a copy to the email address you have provided to us. You will send your notice to ADLY Inc., 12400 Wilshire Blvd Suite 1140, Los Angeles, CA 90025, ATTN: CEO.
- If we fail to resolve the Claim through negotiations within such thirty (30)-day period, either you or ADLY may elect to have the Claim finally and exclusively resolved by binding arbitration by sending a written notice requesting arbitration to the other party. Any election to arbitrate by one party shall be final and binding on the other. The arbitration will be conducted under the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures of JAMS that are in effect at the time the arbitration is initiated (the "JAMS Rules") and under the terms set forth in this Agreement. In the event of a conflict between the terms set forth in this Agreement and the JAMS Rules, the terms in this Agreement will control and prevail.
- You may seek any remedies available to you under federal, state or local laws in an arbitration action. As part of the arbitration, both you and we will have the opportunity for discovery of non-privileged information that is relevant to the Claim. The arbitrator will provide a written statement of the arbitrator's decision regarding the Claim, the award given and the arbitrator's findings and conclusions on which the arbitrator's decision is based. The determination of whether a Claim is subject to arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and determined by a court rather than an arbitrator. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, (i) you and ADLY may litigate in court to compel arbitration, stay proceedings pending arbitration, or confirm, modify, vacate or enter judgment on the award entered by the arbitrator; and (ii) the arbitrator's decision is final, binding on all parties and enforceable in any court that has jurisdiction, provided that any award may be challenged if the arbitrator fails to follow applicable law.
- BY AGREEING TO THIS ARBITRATION PROVISION, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU AND ADLY ARE WAIVING THE RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND HAVE A JURY TRIAL.
- If you initiate arbitration for a Claim, you will only need to pay an arbitration initiation fee of $250 and we will pay all other costs charged by JAMS for initiating the arbitration. If we are initiating arbitration for a Claim, we will pay all costs charged by JAMS for initiating the arbitration. All other fees and costs of the arbitration will be charged pursuant to the JAMS Rules. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary, you will not be required to pay our attorneys' fees or other costs if you do not prevail in the arbitration.
- The arbitration will take place in your hometown area if you so notify ADLY in your notice of arbitration or within ten (10) days following receipt of ADLY's arbitration notice. In the absence of a notice to conduct the arbitration in your hometown area, the arbitration will be conducted in Los Angeles, California, unless the parties agree to video, phone and/or internet connection appearances. Any Claim not subject to arbitration (other than claims proceeding in any small claims court), or where no election to arbitrate has been made, shall be decided exclusively by a court of competent jurisdiction in Los Angeles, California, United States of America, and you and ADLY agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of that court.
- You and ADLY agree that any arbitration shall be limited to the Claim between ADLY and you individually. YOU AND ADLY AGREE THAT (A) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE ARBITRATED ON A CLASS-ACTION BASIS OR TO UTILIZE CLASS ACTION PROCEDURES; (B) THERE IS NO RIGHT OR AUTHORITY FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE BROUGHT IN A PURPORTED REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY OR AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL; AND (C) NO ARBITRATION SHALL BE JOINED WITH ANY OTHER.
- Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, this Agreement shall be governed by, and will be construed under, the laws of the United States of America and the law of the State of California, without regard to choice of law principles. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded.
Miscellaneous. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this Agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. This Agreement (and any Publisher terms of service, advertiser terms of service or IO or any addenda thereto which are incorporated herein by this reference) is the entire agreement between you and ADLY relating to the subject matter herein and supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous written or oral agreements between you and ADLY with respect to such subject matter. This Agreement is not assignable, transferable or sublicenseable by you except with ADLY's prior written consent. No waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default. Any heading, caption or section title contained in this Agreement is inserted only as a matter of convenience and in no way defines or explains any section or provision hereof.
