Terms and Conditions
(a) Netsertive, Inc. (“Netsertive”) will provide Client certain digital marketing services as further described in one or more online enrollment confirmations or Change Orders as mutually agreed by the parties from time to time (the “Services”). Services will utilize Netsertive’s proprietary technology, service networks and skilled marketing professionals. Services are provided only for the benefit of Client. Client may not resell or provide the Services to or for the benefit of any other third party or permit any third party to use the Services. The terms and conditions set forth herein shall govern all such Services. In the event of any conflict between these terms and conditions and the enrollment confirmation, the enrollment confirmation will govern. At any time during the term of Services set forth in an enrollment confirmation, Client may request future additions or modifications to the Services (each a “Change”). No Change shall be considered as an addition or modification to the Services, except pursuant to a written change order mutually agreed by the parties (a “Change Order”). Change Orders are generally affected through Netsertive’s online enrollment portal or by email and counter-email or through other written communications as directed by Netsertive.
(b) The Services selected by Client are for online marketing services in connection with a digital marketing campaign. Netsertive will provide Services in accordance with Client’s overall campaign strategy and as selected by Client through Netsertive’s online enrollment portal. Services are limited to support of one distinct physical location and one website as declared in Client’s online enrollment confirmation. Services may include initial configuration and account set-up, including an industry-specific review of Client’s business, brands, geographic markets, website and competitive position. Netsertive shall activate the program account following such review and configuration (“Program Activation”). Services also include account management, ongoing monitoring, access to subscribed media channels, vendor selection and media placement, reporting and support. Further, in connection with the Services, Client authorizes Netsertive to determine how to allocate Service Fees on Client’s behalf to best drive performance and achievement of Client objectives as measured by Netsertive’s systems. Netsertive is solely responsible for its third party digital marketing costs and Client bears no risk related to those third party costs.
(a) The subscription fee(s) for Services are as set forth on the enrollment confirmation applicable thereto or any modifications thereto made by Change Orders from time to time (the “Subscription Fee”) and the Subscription Fee combined with the Digital Marketing Funds described below, collectively, the “Service Fees”. The amount of the monthly Subscription Fee shall be fixed for the term hereof unless mutually agreed by the parties in a Change Order. The Service Fees includes a monthly amount of “Digital Marketing Funds”. Netsertive will consult with Client to determine the appropriate level of Digital Marketing Funds based on Client’s business objectives and factors such as, among other things, market share and the size of the applicable market. Digital Marketing Funds include management fees based on the quantity purchased and together with the Subscription Fee, are in consideration of the Services. The initial monthly amount of Digital Marketing Funds is indicated on the enrollment confirmation. Client may adjust the monthly amount of Digital Marketing Funds in $100 increments within the range specified on the enrollment confirmation by providing written notice of such change to Netsertive. Any such change will be effective on the first day of the following month or, if insufficient notice is provided prior to the start of such month, as otherwise determined by Netsertive.
(b) All Service Fees are due monthly in advance and all payments for Services will be charged to NMG on the 2nd business day of each month for the current month of service. Client must ensure it has sufficient funds in its account with NMG prior to each monthly obligation for Service Fees becoming due. All payments are nonrefundable and shall be made in United States Dollars. Client is responsible for taxes incurred in connection with the Services, including but not limited to sales and use taxes, but not any taxes payable on the net income of Netsertive. Initial Service Fees will be charged to NMG for the then current month upon Program Activation and subsequent monthly Service Fees will be charged monthly and invoiced to NMG. In the event Client is paying Netsertive directly, then Client will be charged monthly in advance via the method of payment established with Netsertive prior to Program Activation. If a Change Order is executed, Netsertive will charge or refund Client for the change in Service Fees for the then current month upon execution of the Change Order. In the event Client’s funds in its NMG account is insufficient to cover the monthly Service Fees, Client shall immediately notify
Netsertive to cease providing Services. However, Client shall remain obligated for the remainder of any Service Fees owed on the remaining term and customer agrees to provide credit card or ACH information to Netsertive if Service Fees are owed and if requested by Netsertive to satisfy. If any payment remains outstanding after the due date, Netsertive may suspend the Services until Client’s account is current. Further, past due payments will be subject to late charges of the lesser of (i) one percent (1%) per month or (ii) the maximum rate allowed by law.
(c) Service Fees may provide Client access to certain digital advertising channels, as indicated on Client enrollment confirmation or Change Order. Client acknowledges that access to media channels is dependent upon Client providing information to Netsertive. Client agrees to provide Netsertive information required to configure Client’s account within 48 business hours of enrollment in Services through Netsertive’s online enrollment portal. Furthermore, Client agrees that Service Fees will not be withheld as a result of delays in providing Netsertive with information required to provide access to digital advertising channels.
(a) Subject to Section 3(c) below, Services shall commence upon Program Activation and continue for a term of twelve months thereafter pursuant to these terms and conditions. Following this initial term, the term shall automatically renew for successive one-year terms, unless either party provides notice of termination at least 30 and no more than 60 days prior to the effective date of termination, which termination may be for any reason or no reason. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may terminate Services if the other party materially breaches the terms of such enrollment confirmation or these terms and conditions and such breach is not cured within 30 days of receipt of written notice thereof; provided, that a non-breaching party hereunder may terminate an enrollment confirmation immediately upon written notice if the material breach is not capable of cure.
