Failure of Advertiser to meet any deadlines may result in additional charges and changes in publication or distribution dates.
Advertiser shall be responsible for timely providing to Publisher all Ad Material necessary for digital publication and distribution of the Ads, including all necessary artwork and/or digital files, the timing and formats of which may be more specifically set forth in the Order or in Publisher’s media kit. Publisher is not responsible for Ad Material that is not properly formatted or displayed or that cannot be accessed or viewed because it was not received by Publisher in the proper form, in a timely manner, or in an acceptable technical quality for mobile or online publication.
To ensure the integrity of our publications and for the benefit of our readers and advertisers, Publisher reserves the right to revise, reclassify, edit or reject any Ad Material or any portion thereof at any time.

Without limiting the foregoing, an impression will be counted whenever served by Publisher, regardless of viewability, whether served to an end user or to an intermediate or third party ad server (“Third Party Ad Server”), and/or whenever Publisher sends a request to a Third Party Ad Server to serve any Ad. Ads may include a link to Advertiser’s website.
Publisher will track delivery of impressions on its website through its ad server and, provided that Publisher has approved in writing a Third Party Ad Server to run on its properties, Advertiser will track delivery through such Third Party Ad Server.

Publisher owns all right, title and interest in and to any data about users of its websites. Advertiser authorizes Publisher to bring any claims Publisher may in its reasonable discretion choose to pursue to prevent third party use of the content or data contained in any Advertising, without Advertiser’s consent.
Provided that Advertiser complies with all applicable laws, rules and regulations, and applicable industry guidelines, Advertiser may use data regarding a campaign for retargeting a User (Publisher website visitor) or appending data to a non-public profile regarding a user for purposes other than performing an insertion order, so long as it is not joined with any IO details or data that would allow identification of Publisher or its Users. Advertiser may use advertising performance data for internal media planning purposes only, and may disclose qualitative evaluations of such data to its clients and potential clients only for the purpose of media planning and only when aggregated with other campaign data.
Advertiser will provide Publisher with images and other content it would like to include if its ad is to be used in email marketing campaigns. In the event that Advertiser does not provide all content for the Ad, Publisher’s service provider will add additional content that the provider has the right to use for this purpose, and will retain its rights in such added content.
Publisher will provide Advertiser with a copy of the Ad to review prior to deployment of the email campaign. Advertiser must object to the Ad within 2 business days, or it will be deemed approved.
