3. By filling in the application Publisher submits a binding offer to enter into a contract with Ureka Media according to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

4. After Ureka Media reviews Publishers application, Ureka Media will notify him of his acceptance or rejection to the Publisher Program, generally within two (2) business days.

5. Ureka Media may accept or reject Publishers application at its sole discretion for any reason.

6. Ureka Media offers its services to commercial Publishers only. Consumers are not eligible to become a Publisher.

3. OBLIGATIONS OF THE PARTIES

a) Subject to Ureka Medias acceptance of Publisher and Publishers continued compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Ureka Media agrees as follows:

1. Ureka Media will make available to Publisher via the Publisher Program graphic and textual links to the Program Web Site or a range of Program Web Sites (Aggregation) and/or other creative materials (collectively, the Links) which Publisher may display on web sites and apps owned or controlled by Publisher, in emails sent by Publisher and clearly identified as coming from Publisher and in online advertisements (collectively, Media). The Links will serve to identify Publisher as a member of Ureka Medias Publisher Program and will establish a link from Publishers Media to the Program Web Site(s). In case of Aggregation, the selection of the respective Program Web Sites will be conducted by the Publisher; Ureka Media employees will only intervene manually in extraordinary cases, without however being obliged to do so; such manual intervention will be performed in Publishers and Advertisers interest.

2. Ureka Media will credit to Publishers account with Ureka Media for each Qualified Action (the Commission) an amount as defined in the respective Offers description. A Qualified Action means an action as defined in the Offers description performed by an individual person who (i) accesses the Program Web Site via the Link, where the Link is the last link to the Program Web Site, (ii) is not a computer generated user, such as a robot, spider, computer script or other automated, artificial or fraudulent method to appear like an individual, real live person, (iii) is not using pre-populated fields (iv) completes all of the information required for such action within the time period allowed by Ureka Media and (v) is not later determined by Ureka Media to be fraudulent, incomplete, unqualified or a duplicate.

3. Ureka Media will pay Publisher any Commissions earned in a certain month 30 days after the end of this respective month, provided that Publishers account balance is currently greater than 50 EUR and the Publisher activates the payout button in the Ureka Media Publisher Platform. Accounts with a balance of less than 50 EUR cannot be paid out and will roll over to the next month, and will continue to roll over monthly until the minimum payout volume of 50 EUR is reached. Since Ureka Media will endeavor to pay out Commissions to the Publisher as early as possible, this cannot be done unconditionally. Ureka Media therefore reserves the right to charge back to Publishers account any previously paid Qualified Actions that are later determined to have not met the requirements to be a Qualified Action. In case Publishers later account balance is lower than the due charge back amount Publisher is obliged to transfer the due amount back to Ureka Media upon request within no more than 7 business days. Ureka Media reserves the right to claim charge backs for up to 3 months after the respective Qualified Action has been performed by the user. Ureka Media also reserves the right to reclaim a payment at a later date within the statutory limitation periods if Ureka Media can show that the payment to the Publisher was not based on a payment claim due to a Qualified Action.

4. In case Ureka Media is obliged to pay back monies already collected to Advertisers, banks, or payment providers, such monies are deductible in the month they are paid back. The same applies in respect of monies paid back to Advertisers, banks, or payment providers in the event that Ureka Media agrees to do so on a bona fide basis to settle a dispute, unless such settlement is not reasonable, and the Publisher contradicts in writing within 10 business days upon being informed. Circumstances which oblige Ureka Media to pay back monies to Advertisers include alleged abuse or other instances of fraud for which Ureka Media is not responsible, as well as refunds. Circumstances which oblige Ureka Media to pay back monies to payment providers or banks include credit card or debit card fraud committed by Publishers or their agents, and Chargebacks. Chargebacks mean any credit or debit card transactions that are returned for reimbursement of the cardholders account for any reason.

5. Payment for Commissions is dependent upon Advertisers providing such funds to Ureka Media, and therefore, if an Advertiser does not provide sufficient funds, Ureka Media will pay the Commissions for the relevant Publisher Programs to all Publishers on a pro rata basis, if necessary. If the Advertiser does not provide sufficient funds to Ureka Media within 2 weeks, the Publisher shall be entitled to claim payment from the Advertiser directly and is obliged to do so before making any claim against Ureka Media. In this case, if requested to do so, Ureka Media shall assign its claims against the Advertiser to the Publisher in a sum equivalent to the amount due to the Publisher. The Publisher is not obliged to make a claim against the Advertiser directly if such claim is clearly without a chance of success due to the Advertiser being destitute.

6. The Publisher shall be solely responsible for the payment of, and shall pay when due and indemnify Ureka Media against, all applicable taxes, including any VAT and other sales, use, excise or transfer taxes and other taxes associated with payments to Publisher under the Agreement (except for taxes assessed on Ureka Medias net income).

7. Ureka Media shall automatically generate a credit note on behalf of Publisher for all Commissions payable under this Agreement and shall remit payment to Publisher based upon that credit note. All tracking of Links and determinations of Qualified actions and Commissions shall be made by Ureka Media in its reasonable discretion.

8. In the event that Publisher disputes in good faith any portion of a credit note, Publisher must submit that dispute to Ureka Media in writing and in sufficient detail within 14 days of the date on the credit note. If Publisher does not dispute the credit note as set forth herein, then Publisher agrees that it irrevocably waives any claims based upon that credit note.

9. Ureka Media tracks for the Publisher all of Publishers Qualified Actions based on generally accepted industry methods and shows them live 24/7 in statistical reports in the Ureka Media system.

10. If Publisher has an outstanding balance due to Ureka Media under this Agreement or any other agreement between the Publisher and Ureka Media, whether or not related to the Publisher Program, Publisher agrees that Ureka Media may offset any such amounts due to Ureka Media from amounts payable to Publisher under this Agreement.

11. By and rendering the services according to this Agreement, Ureka Media acts only as an agent between the Advertiser and the Publisher. The Advertiser itself is solely responsible for submitting offers for Advertising Programs to the Publisher. Ureka Media has no influence in this regard and thus provides no guarantee that offers, and thus Advertising Programs, will be available in satisfactory quantity.

12. Ureka Media does not allow Advertisers to transmit any Advertisement through the Ureka Media Publisher Platform to the Publisher that is unlawful, defamatory, libellous, harassing, abusive, fraudulent or obscene, or to link their Advertisements to such content. Upon being informed thereof, Ureka Media shall promptly remove any Advertisement containing such content. The Publisher does not have any other claims against Ureka Media.

13. Ureka Media shall use commercially reasonable efforts to block Links, from the collection of Links provided to the Publisher for display on the Media, from Blocked Domains.

14. Ureka Media takes reasonable measures to protect its systems against viruses, spyware and other malicious code (together Malicious Code), and shall take reasonable measures to check, or have its Advertisers check, all Links delivered through its systems to the Publisher, for Malicious Code. However, the Publisher acknowledges that Malicious Code can never be completely prevented. It is the Publishers responsibility to protect all data stored on its systems against unauthorized access, and data loss. The Publisher shall make its users waive, as far as legally permissible, all potential claims against Ureka Media based on Malicious Code, and inform its users as to appropriate measures to protect their systems.

15. Unauthorized third parties may send e-mails under the name of Ureka Media, without Ureka Medias knowledge or consent, and such e-mails may contain Malicious Code or links to web content which, in turn, contains Malicious Code. Ureka Media cannot prevent such behaviour. The Publisher shall, therefore, recommend its users to check all incoming e-mail for Malicious Code prior to opening them.

b) Publisher also agrees to:

1. Have sole responsibility for the development, operation, and maintenance of, and all content on or linked to, Publishers Media.

2. Ensure that all materials posted on Publishers Media or otherwise used in connection with the Publisher Program (i) are not illegal, (ii) do not infringe upon the intellectual property or personal rights of any third party and (iii) do not contain or link to any material which is harmful, threatening, defamatory, obscene, sexually explicit, harassing, promotes violence, promotes discrimination (whether based on sex, religion, race, ethnicity, nationality, disability or age), promotes illegal activities (such as gambling where applicable), contains profanity or otherwise contains materials that Ureka Media informs Publisher that it considers objectionable (collectively, Objectionable Content).

3. Accept that Ureka Media neither endorses nor approves of actions performed or content made available by the Publisher.

4. Hold Ureka Media harmless of any third party claims alleging the Publisher Media contains illegal content.

5. Not make any representations, warranties or other statements concerning Ureka Media or Advertiser or any of their respective products or services, except as expressly authorized herein.

6. Make sure that Publishers Media does not copy or resemble the look and feel of the Program Web Site or create the impression that Publishers Media is endorsed by Ureka Media or Advertisers or a part of the Program Web Site, without prior written permission from Ureka Media.

7. Comply with all (i) obligations, requirements and restrictions under this Agreement and (ii) laws, rules and regulations as they relate to Publishers business, Publishers Media or Publishers use of the Links.

8. Comply with the terms, conditions, guidelines and policies of any third party services (if any) used by Publisher in connection with the Publisher Program, including but not limited to, email providers, social networking services and ad networks.

9. Always prominently post and make available to end-users, including prior to the collection of any personally identifiable information, a privacy policy in compliance with all applicable laws that clearly and thoroughly discloses all information collection, use and sharing practices, including providing for the collection of such personally identifiable information in connection with the Publisher Program and the provision of such personally identifiable information to Ureka Media and Advertisers for use as intended by Ureka Media and Advertisers, further detailed in Sect. 16 of the Agreement.

10. Always prominently post and make available to end-users any terms and conditions in connection with the Offer set forth by Ureka Media or Advertiser, or as required by applicable laws regarding such Offers.

11. Make sure to not place Ureka Media Publisher Programs on any online auction platform (i.e. eBay, Amazon, etc).

c) The following additional program-specific terms shall apply to any promotional programs set forth below:

1. Advertising Campaigns. No Links can appear to be associated with or be positioned on chat rooms or bulletin boards unless otherwise agreed by Ureka Media in writing. Any pop-ups/unders used for the Publisher Program shall be clearly identified as Publisher served in the title bar of the window and any Advertiser-side ad serving software used by Publisher shall only have been installed on an end-user’s computer if the function of the software is clearly disclosed to end-users prior to installation, the installation is pursuant to an affirmatively accepted end user license agreement and the software be easily removed according to generally accepted methods.

2. Publisher Network Campaigns. All Publishers that maintain their own Publisher networks and intend to broker Ureka Medias offers through their network need prior written approval from Ureka Media. In case approval is granted, Publisher agrees to place the Links in its Publisher network (the Network) for access and use by those Publishers in Publisher’s Network (each a Third Party Publisher ). If Third Party Publisher is itself a network (and thus working with further Third Party Publishers), then Publisher needs to get prior written approval from Ureka Media for each one of those Third Party Publisher Networks. Publisher agrees that it will expressly forbid any Third Party Publisher to modify the Links in any way. Publisher agrees to maintain its Network according to the highest industry standards. Publisher shall not permit any party to be a Third Party Publisher whose web site or business model involves content containing Objectionable Content. All Third Party Publishers must be in good standing with Publisher. Publisher must require and confirm that all Third Party Publishers affirmatively accept, through verifiable means, terms at least equivalent to those in this Agreement prior to obtaining access to the Links. Publisher shall promptly terminate any agreement with a Third Party Publisher who takes, or could reasonably be expected to take, any action that violates the terms and conditions of this Agreement. In the event that either party suspects any wrongdoing by a Third Party Publisher with respect to the Links, Publisher shall promptly disclose to Ureka Media the identity and contact information for such Third Party Publisher. Publisher shall promptly remove any Third Party Publisher from the Publisher Program and terminate their access to future Offers of Ureka Media in the Network upon written notice from Ureka Media. Unless Ureka Media has been provided with all truthful and complete contact information for a Third Party Publisher and such Third Party Publisher has affirmatively accepted terms at least equivalent to those in this Agreement as recorded by Ureka Media, Publisher shall remain liable for all acts or omissions of any Third Party Publisher.

3. Incentive Traffic: Publisher acknowledges that Ureka Media is a non-incentivized traffic network. This means, that Publisher is not allowed to provide incentives (e.g. virtual or real currency) to his or Publishers users for performing any actions resulting in a successful conversion event. Conversions achieved through providing incentives will therefore be treated as invalid and/or fraud and may lead to the exclusion of Publisher from Ureka Medias network. This applies to all offers unless incentive traffic is explicitly approved in the offer description. Ureka Media may explicitly approve incentive traffic for certain offers in writing (e.g. via Email) on a case by case basis. Publisher will generally receive lower payouts for incentive traffic, details will be specified within the offer description or in separate Email.

4. Unless otherwise agreed upon, Publisher may not use any self-generated creative assets that have not explicitly been approved by Ureka Media. Self-generated creative assets that do fully comply with the advertisers marketing message and brand identity and are therefore only adjusted variations of the creative material provided in the offer description will generally be approved.

4. CONFIDENTIALITY, NON-CIRCUMVENTION

I. Confidentiality:

1. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement or with the consent of Ureka Media, Publisher agrees that all information, including, without limitation, the terms of this Agreement, business and financial information, customer and vendor lists, and pricing and sales information, concerning Ureka Media or any of Ureka Medias Advertisers and/or partners provided by or on behalf of any of them shall remain strictly confidential and secret and shall not be utilized, directly or indirectly, by Publisher for any purpose other than Publishers participation in the Publisher Program.

2. Publisher shall especially not use any information obtained from the Publisher Program to develop, enhance or operate a service that competes with the Publisher Program, or assist another party to do the same.

3. After and during the term of the Agreement, neither party will use for any purpose or disclose to any third party, any Confidential Information of the other party. Any exception to this must be obtained in advance.

4. The foregoing restriction does not apply to information that has been developed independently by the receiving party without access to the other partys Confidential Information or has been rightfully received from a third party authorized to make such disclosure or has been approved for release in writing by the disclosing party or has become publicly known through no breach of this Sect. 3 by the receiving party or is required to be disclosed by a competent legal or governmental authority, provided that the receiving party gives the disclosing party prompt written notice of such requirement prior to disclosure and assists in obtaining an order to protect the information from public disclosure.

II. Non-circumvention:

1. Publisher explicitly agrees to withhold completely from entering into a business relation with or from approaching Ureka Medias Advertisers either directly or through third parties with regard to user acquisition or performance marketing services for the term of this Agreement and a period of time of six months after the end of this agreement.

2. Any direct or indirect business relations between Publisher and Ureka Medias Advertisers with regard to the above named services have to either involve Ureka Media as intermediary or require Ureka Medias prior written consent.

3. This also extends to any other companies founded, in whole or in part held, controlled or administered directly or indirectly by Publisher, as long as Publisher is able to prevent such actions against the interests of Ureka Media.

4. Publisher is personally responsible to follow this commitment and must not use any means to circumvent his obligation.

5. Breach of this clause will result in a contractual penalty to be determined by an independent court in Ureka Medias’ residential country and should not be less than twice the financial loss caused through this unauthorized action with a minimum fee of 2,500 EUR .

6. An obligation to reimburse damages will thereby not be excluded. This also applies to any rights granted to Ureka Media by Sect. 87 ff. German Commercial Code (Handelsgesetzbuch, HGB ).

7. In case Publisher can prove having entered into a business relation with Ureka Medias Advertiser (the advertiser) before entering into a business relation with Ureka Media, this clause should not be enforced.

5. LIMITED LICENSE & INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

1. Ureka Media grants Publisher a nonexclusive, nontransferable, revocable right to use the Links and to access Ureka Medias web site through the Links solely in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, for the sole purpose of identifying Publishers Media as a participant in the Publisher Program and assisting in increasing sales through the Program Web Site.

Therefore, the Ureka Media Publisher Platform can only be considered to be defective if its usability is affected severely and for a significant period of time. This is especially the case if the mathematical calculation or the display of the Publishers Commission (see ß 7) is incorrect, unless the error is negligible.
