Those Terms and Conditions (the “T&C”) are entered into between the advertiser as defined in the Insertion Order (the “Client” which expression shall include any holding company and the final advertiser where Client acts as its agent) and Art of Click (“Art Of Click”). The Client and Art Of Click are collectively referred to as the “Parties”, individually as a “Party”. Those T&C are incorporated by reference to the Insertion Order and Client’s placing of an Insertion Order implies full acceptance by Client of those T&C. Those T&C and the Insertion Order shall form the agreement between the Parties, to the exclusion of any other terms that the Client seeks to impose or incorporate, or which are implied by trade, custom, practice or course of dealing (the “Agreement”). The Agreement shall govern the provisions of the Services by Art Of Click to the Client as described in the Insertion Order. In the event of conflicting provisions between the Insertion Order and these T&C, the Insertion Order shall prevail.

2. Measurements.

Unless otherwise agreed in writing by the Parties, fees charged by Art Of Click shall be based on the total amount reflected on the actual delivery at the end of each month or each campaign, whichever comes earlier, according to Client’s reports for CPI and CPA or Art Of Click’s reports for CPC and CPM. Art Of Click makes no representation or warranty as to the level of delivery under the Insertion Order. Client shall be responsible to validate all impressions, clicks, leads and/or conversions. (A) Where fees are based on Client’s reports, the Client shall send its report to Art Of Click no later than the 5th day of each month; failure to do so, fees shall be based on Art Of Click Reports and paragraph (B) below shall apply. Client shall, during the term of this Agreement and for a period of 3 months thereafter, retain books and records of all data necessary to compute the fees to be charged by Art Of Click to Client. Art Of Click (or any third party appointed by Art Of Click for that purpose) shall have the right from time to time to audit such books and records. In the event that the audit reveals an underpayment, Client shall forthwith pay such underpayment to Art Of Click together with late payment interests (in accordance with clause 3). If the underpayment is greater than 5%, Client shall reimburse Art Of Click the costs of the audit. Audit measurements are final. (B) Where fees are based on Art Of Click’s reports, Client shall notify Art Of Click Pte. Ltd. of any discrepancies between its measurements and the fees charged by Art Of Click within five (5) days from the date of Art of Click’s invoice. Failure to do so, Client acknowledges and agrees that Art Of Click measurements are final and prevail over any other measurements and Client waives any and all rights and title to dispute in connection or arising out of Art Of Click measurements.  Whether fees are based on Client or Art Of Click reports, where no KPIs have been agreed in writing by Art Of Click and Client, Art Of Click shall not accept any rejection based on quality, including without limitation fitness for purposes, and all such rejections shall be charged by Art Of Click and paid by Client.

This Agreement shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of Singapore. All disputes arising out of or in connection with this Agreement, including any question regarding its existence, validity or termination, shall be referred to and finally resolved by arbitration administered by the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (the “SIAC”) in accordance with the Arbitration Rules of the SIAC for the time being in force, which rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference in this clause 10. The seat of arbitration shall be Singapore. Arbitration shall be held in English language. The tribunal shall consist of one (1) arbitrator.

12. Marketing.

Art Of Click reserves the right to use Client’s name, logos and trademarks for presentations, media kits, PR releases, PR campaigns, marketing and promotional materials, customer lists, financial reports and press releases. The respective trademarks and logos referred herewith are and remain the property of Client or their respective owners.

13. Downtime Compensation.

Client shall notify Art Of Click whenever it experiences downtime that may affect or affects the performance of Art Of Click obligations under this Agreement. In the event that Client’s site goes down during a campaign, Client shall compensate Art Of Click by the following process:

  • Identify when the downtime occurred.
  • Check server log of Client (avg. subscriptions generated per hour 3 hours before errors started to occur and 3 hours after errors were resolved). Lost sales would be determined by the average number of sales generated per hour of normal service minus the average number of sales generated during the downtime period multiplied by the number of hours of downtime.
  • Art Of Click will check the server log for avg. revenue generated per 3 hours before errors started to occur and 3 hours after errors were resolved. Lost revenue will be determined by the average number of revenue generated per hour of normal service minus the average # of revenue generated during the downtime period multiplied by the number of hours of downtime. Lost sales would be the lost revenue divided by the payout per sale.
  • Client shall pay Art Of Click the average of the lost sales estimate determined by Client and the lost sales estimate determined by Art Of Click

14. KPIs.

(A) Incent offers: incent traffic is usually used in order to improve the rank in AppStore/Google Play. As for that, Art of Click will not accept any KPI on quality on the traffic: quality is not the goal of incent traffic. Moreover, Google and Apple are actively fighting incentivized installs. Art of Click can not be responsible for discrepancies between store and SDK numbers and therefore require to be paid as per client SDK numbers. (B) Non-incent offers: Client has to provide quality KPIs (retention, in-app purchase etc) via server-to-server postbacks. If Client does not have any automated capability to send those KPIs by S2S, Art of Click expects two (2) reports per week on quality at a SubID level in order to optimize the traffic.

  • If quality reports are given, Art of Click will work on optimization. If quality is not met after a certain time of optimisation the Client will have the choice to pause or stop the campaign. Client shall still pay for all conversions made from start of the campaign.
  • If quality reports are not given, then Art of Click will not accept any rejection of traffic (for quality reasons or KPI not met) at the end of a campaign or during invoicing time at the end of the month.

15. Fraud.

If a fraud is suspected, or if the Client thinks that incent traffic is delivered on a non-incent offer, then evidence at a SubID level is required to reject those conversions. If the fraud is proven, then only fraud conversions will be rejected at invoicing time, without any impact on the rest of the campaign invoicing. Client shall notify Art of Click and provide evidences no later than the 5th of each month. Art of Click will not accept any rejection based on numbers already approved by Client.

16. Non-competition. Non Solicitation.

Client shall not, during the term of this Agreement and for [6] months thereafter, either alone or jointly, directly or indirectly, engage in or be involved in services which compete with the Services, marketing or distributing any products subject to the campaign described in the Insertion Order on the web. Whilst the restrictions in this clause are regarded by the Parties as fair and reasonable, each of the restrictions is intended to be separate and severable. Client shall not, during the term of this Agreement and for [6] months thereafter, either alone or jointly, directly or indirectly, solicit or entice or attempt to solicit or entice, any employee of Art Of Click to become employed whether as employee, consultant or otherwise by Client, whether or not such employee would thereby commit a breach of his contract of service.

17. Entire Agreement.

Except to the extent of any misrepresentation which constitutes fraud, this Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties relating to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and supersedes all previous agreements (whether oral or in writing) between the Parties relating to the transactions. Subject to this clause, each Party acknowledges that in entering into this Agreement it has not relied on any representation, warranty, collateral contract or other assurance (except those set out in this Agreement) made by or on behalf of any other Party before the date of this Agreement. Each Party waives all rights and remedies which, but for this clause 17, might otherwise be available to it in respect of any such representation, warranty, collateral contract or other assurance.

18. Assignment.

This Agreement, and any rights granted hereunder, may not be transferred, assigned, subcontracted or novated by Client without the prior written consent of Art Of Click. Art Of Click may freely transfer, assign subcontract or novate any or all of its rights, licenses and obligations associated with this Agreement at any time. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the Parties hereto and their respective successors and assigns.
