Relationship of parties

The Parties agree that this Agreement does not prevent either of the Parties from providing services to third parties or from receiving services from third parties.

Services provided

Service Provider shall have the responsibility to provide publishing services as agreed between the Parties (hereinafter referred to as “Service”, “Services”). Services may include but are not limited to content publishing, digital advertising, content marketing or public relations.

The Service Provider reserves the right to reject any request for Service from any Client without giving any reason whatsoever.

Every Service rendered involves the publication of a commercial placement on a website managed by Service Provider. Commercial placement is defined as either a text anchor with a hyperlink and HTML parameters or as a graphic banner with a hyperlink and HTML parameters (hereinafter referred to as “Placement”).

Depending on the type of Service, the Client may provide additional content in form of text, graphics or code outside of Placement. Any text, graphics or other content outside of Placement that is submitted by Client is considered as a suggestion for supporting content that may or may not help the Service Provider in rendering the Service. The Service Provider gives no warranty that any supporting content will be published as submitted by Client.

Services are graded by the Service Provider as either “R” or “S”, which has impact on cost of Service. Grading of Services is at the sole discretion of Service Provider. During the provision of Services, the Service Provider is responsible to provide services with their best effort within the Turn-Around-Time of 48 hours for Services graded “R” or 72 hours for Services graded “S”.

  • There is no refund for cancellations of previously paid Services.
  • In the event of Client’s cancellation of a previously rendered Service, the Service Provider will remove Client’s Placement but reserves the right to retain a version of textual supporting content.
