Where Advertiser authorizes any third party to manage Advertiser’s Account or use or access the Service, Advertiser is solely responsible for any and all actions performed by such third party. Should you use the Service on behalf of another person or entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to do so and are binding such person or entity to these Terms.

To the fullest extent permitted under Applicable Laws, you irrevocably waive any moral or equivalent rights you may have in Advertising Content; and to the extent a waiver is not permitted, you agree not to assert any such rights against Playsee.
Playsee may also disclose your Advertising Content and any information related to Advertiser or Advertiser's Account in response to valid legal process or to a governmental entity or body to assist in a lawful investigation.
6. Payment Terms
Advertiser shall timely pay Playsee all amounts due for the Ad Service (“Fees”) in full without any setoff, deduction, refund, or credit. Fees shall be due once the identified billing threshold has been met. For more information about how we charge, please refer to the Help Center.
Playsee will send Advertiser a payment receipt by email (to Advertiser’s email address of record) after Fees are charged. Playsee does not send invoices.
Advertiser shall submit a valid credit card, which will automatically be charged for Fees; and Advertiser authorizes Playsee and Advertiser's payment processor(s) to store Advertiser’s payment information, obtain pre-authorization, and charge Advertiser’s credit card for all due Fees. Playsee or its third-party payment processor may run one or more payment authorization checks before the payment method is charged. Playsee may update your payment information from time to time using a payment card updater. You hereby authorize Playsee or its third-party payment processor to store your payment information, as updated from time to time and, if needed, to continue billing the payment method until the order for the Service has been fulfilled.
In the event where your account is suspended due to violation of any applicable Playsee terms and guidelines, the accumulated Fees may be charged to the payment method immediately.
The amount of Fees due shall be calculated by Playsee in its sole and definitive measurement. Fees may include any fees and charges (including any credit card or overage fees) in addition to the cost of using the applicable portions of the Service. Fees are exclusive of taxes. Advertiser is responsible for paying and reporting all applicable taxes and other government fees and charges that may be due.
Advertiser authorizes Playsee to obtain credit reports on Advertiser and to require payment in advance if credit is impaired. Advertiser is solely responsible for all Fees due, including where use of the payment method is not authorized by Advertiser, where Advertiser “unclaims” its “GeoInfo” on Playsee, or where Advertiser’s business has closed. If Playsee does not receive full payment from your payment card issuer or your alternative payment method, you remain obligated to pay Playsee for all amounts due.
In the event that Advertiser changes its payment method, all accumulated balance shall be immediately charged to the current payment method; if the current payment method cannot be successfully charged, all accumulated balance shall be charged to the new payment method instead. If payment of additional Fees is owed, Advertiser shall pay for all such Fees. Unpaid Fees are subject to a charge of 1.5% per month on any outstanding balance, or the maximum amount permitted by law, whichever is lower, plus all expenses of collection, including attorney’s fees and costs. It shall be a material breach of this Agreement if Advertiser fails to timely pay all due Fees. Such failure of payment may result in suspension or termination of an ad campaign, and/or suspension or termination of Advertiser’s Account, in Playsee’s sole discretion. To the fullest extent permitted by law, if Advertiser disputes any issue(s) relating to Fees, including the amount of due Fees, Advertiser must promptly notify Playsee in writing of the dispute and submit any evidence supporting Advertiser’s position within 30 days after being charged by emailing Playsee at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Fee Dispute”. Advertiser waives all claims related to Fees not disputed in writing from the 30th day onwards. If the parties are unable to reach a resolution as to the amount of Fees due, Playsee’s reasonable determination shall govern. In any action or proceeding to enforce rights under this Agreement, including to recover Fees, the prevailing party will be entitled to recover reasonable costs and attorney’s fees.
7. Term and Termination
Either party may terminate this Agreement, for any reason or no reason, at any time. In the event that the other party (i) files a voluntary petition in bankruptcy; (ii) makes an assignment for the benefit of their creditors; or (iii) breaches any of their representations or warranties under this Agreement and fails to remedy their breach within 30 days of written notice of its breach, this Agreement shall automatically terminate. Advertiser may also pause or terminate a specific ad campaign at any time (by changing the opt-in/opt-out feature), provided that Advertiser shall be liable for any Fees due (i.e., all Fees after an ad campaign has started running if the billing threshold has been met, as outlined in Section 6). Pausing or terminating a specific ad campaign or promotion will not pause or terminate other ad campaigns or promotions, nor cease any obligations under such other ad campaigns or promotions. The termination of any specific ad campaign shall not in any way impact the validity or existence of any Advertising Terms under any other ad campaign(s) published by Advertiser.
If we have good reason to believe that your use and access of the Service violated these Terms, our Playsee Rules or other policies, to the extent permissible by law, we may terminate, suspend, or restrict your access or use of our Service, immediately and without appropriate notice.
In the event that Advertiser breaches its obligations in Sections 2–6, or 8-9, Playsee may, in its sole and absolute discretion, suspend and/or terminate this Agreement, Advertiser’s Account, withdraw any Advertising Content and/or any specific ad campaign without any further notice to Advertiser. Playsee may further modify, cancel, suspend, or discontinue the Service or any offerings, including any reporting, measurement solutions, and advertisement product offerings, and the Ad Service, in whole or in part, at any time in its sole discretion, without any further notice to Advertiser. Upon termination of this Agreement, any and all licenses and rights granted to Advertiser in connection with this Agreement shall immediately cease and terminate, and Advertiser shall immediately: (i) discontinue use of the Service and the Account; (ii) pay all outstanding Fees and amounts then due and owing under this Agreement; (iii) return to Playsee all documents and other materials related to the Service as required or requested by Playsee; and (iv) continue to perform any obligations under this Agreement that expressly survive, or that may be reasonably expected to survive termination. Without limiting any other provisions of this Agreement, and except as stated above, Sections 3–4 and 8–16, and the obligation to pay outstanding Fees, shall expressly survive any termination.
8. Confidential Information
Each party agrees to use the other party's Confidential Information solely for the purposes contemplated by this Agreement and to refrain from disclosing the other party's Confidential Information to any third party, unless disclosure is: (a) necessary and permitted in connection with the receiving party's performance of the obligations or exercise of the rights under this Agreement or any other agreement between the parties; (b) required by law, provided that the receiving party uses reasonable efforts to give the disclosing party reasonable advance notice thereof so as to afford the disclosing party an opportunity to intervene and seek an order or other appropriate relief for the protection of the Confidential Information from use or disclosure; or (c) made with the consent of the disclosing party. For the purposes of this Agreement, “Confidential Information” includes, without limitation, information regarding any existing or contemplated Playsee services, products, processes, techniques, or know-how, or any information or data developed pursuant to the performance of the Service. The term “Confidential Information” does not include information that: (a) at the time of the disclosure or thereafter is or becomes generally available to the public other than as a result of the disclosure by the receiving party in violation of this Agreement; (b) was or becomes available to the receiving party on a non-confidential basis from a source other than the disclosing party; (c) is independently developed by the receiving party without the use of any Confidential Information; or (d) was in the possession of the receiving party prior to being disclosed to the receiving party by the disclosing party.

Playsee works hard to protect all your information and data, and prevent them from any fraudulent, unauthorized, or illegal activities. Therefore, we employ technical, administrative, and physical security measures that are designed to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. However, no system can be completely secure. Should there be any breach in our security measures that caused your information or data to be in danger of any fraudulent, unauthorized, or illegal activities, we shall inform you within a reasonable time, and guide you through the steps that need to be taken to prevent further damage and danger. On the other hand, the safety and security of your information also depends on you. Never share your password with any unauthorized persons or third parties and notify us as soon as possible if you believe your account security has been breached. For accounts created on behalf of a company, organization or other entity, you are responsible for ensuring that only authorized individuals have access to the account.

15. Resolution of Claims
(a) General Provisions
This provision applies to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law. If there is a claim, dispute, or controversy of any kind (collectively, “Claim(s)”) involving you and Playsee, or any of its parents, subsidiaries, affiliated companies, employees, agents, officers, directors, shareholders, and/or licensors (which shall be third-party beneficiaries of this arbitration provision), arising out of or related to these Terms, the Service, or your Account, you and Playsee agree to first try to resolve the Claim informally. You may contact us at email@example.com. If we cannot resolve the Claim informally, you and Playsee agree to resolve all Claims exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court, as, and except as, provided herein. ALL SUCH CLAIMS MUST BE BROUGHT IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, AND THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE PARTY'S CLAIMS. BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND PLAYSEE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY AND TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. ANY CAUSE OF ACTION BY ADVERTISER ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING TO THE SERVICE OR THIS AGREEMENT MUST BE INSTITUTED WITHIN 1 YEAR AFTER THE CAUSE OF ACTION AROSE OR WILL BE FOREVER WAIVED. Arbitration will be before one neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury. You agree that, except where prohibited by law, the U.S. Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration provision. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") under its rules, including its commercial arbitration rules, except as provided herein. You can find the AAA rules and forms at www.adr.org. Unless you and Playsee agree otherwise, the arbitration will be conducted in San Francisco, California; but the arbitration may be conducted through, and the parties may attend via, video conference, telephonic hearing, or document submission. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to resolve, including issues of enforceability, interpretation, applicability, and construction of this arbitration provision; the arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any Claim, including relating to the enforceability, interpretation, applicability, and construction of this arbitration provision. The arbitrator will issue a decision in writing but need only provide a statement of reasons if requested by a party. Any judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms and your Account. This arbitration provision shall not prevent either party from, in a court of competent jurisdiction, seeking injunctive relief in aid of arbitration, including for matters related to intellectual property or unauthorized access to the Service, or from moving to compel or stay arbitration or enforce an arbitration award. If your business is outside of the United States, you and Playsee agree to resolve all Claims exclusively in Taipei District Court, Taiwan (R.O.C.). You and Playsee consent to and waive objections to personal jurisdiction and venue of such courts as applicable. Except to the extent expressly stated otherwise in these Advertising Terms or preempted by U.S. federal law, these Advertising Terms and any Claims (whether contract, tort, or otherwise) arising out of or related to these Terms or the Service will be governed by the state laws of California.
(b) Third-Party Claims
If any claim or action of any nature is brought against Playsee, this agreement to arbitrate will not preclude Playsee from bringing a third-party claim against Advertiser or any third party, including through a cross-complaint or independent complaint. If Playsee brings a cross-complaint against Advertiser in any existing action, ADVERTISER WAIVES OBJECTION TO THE VENUE AND PERSONAL JURISDICTION OF THE COURT.
Neither we nor you will have any liability under the Agreement by reason of any failure or delay in the performance of our or your obligations on account of strikes, shortages, riots, acts of terrorism, insurrection, fires, flood, storm, explosions, earthquakes, Internet and/or electrical outages, computer viruses, acts of God, war, governmental action, pandemic restrictions or orders, or any cause that is beyond our or your reasonable control.
Except in connection with a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or substantially all of Advertiser’s assets related to this Agreement, Advertiser may not assign this Agreement or the rights and obligations hereunder, and any attempted assignment in contravention of this provision shall be null and void and of no force or effect. Playsee may assign this Agreement, and any and all rights granted hereunder, in its sole discretion, at any time, without Advertiser’s consent.
Except as provided herein, the failure to exercise a right or require performance of an obligation under this Agreement shall not affect a party’s ability to exercise such right or require such performance at any time thereafter nor shall the waiver of a breach constitute waiver of any subsequent breach. This Agreement will be binding upon and will inure to the benefit of the parties, their successors, and permitted assigns.
No waiver of any term of these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Playsee’s failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
Playsee may change or update these Advertising Terms from time to time by providing a new version or posting it on the Service, and your continued use of the Service constitutes acceptance of those changes. This Agreement may not otherwise be modified except by an instrument in writing signed by each party. The relationship of the parties under this Agreement is one of independent contractors and nothing herein should be construed to constitute the parties as partners, joint ventures, agent and principal, or employer and employee.
Any notice due hereunder shall be effective by emailing and/or mailing a document to the contact information on record. Advertiser shall have an ongoing obligation to provide accurate and updated contact information to Playsee. If Advertiser becomes aware of any litigation or investigation concerning the subject matter of this Agreement, Advertiser shall immediately notify Playsee of such action. Advertiser agrees not to disclose the name of Playsee or any third parties using the Service without providing Playsee with at least 10 days’ written notice of any intent to disclose such information.
Advertiser agrees that Advertiser will not, for at least the term of this Agreement and 6 months after, solicit or circumvent any business relationships involving Playsee, unless there was a prior-existing relationship with the respective third party. Each party acknowledges and agrees that they have had the opportunity to seek the advice of independent legal counsel and has read and understood all of the terms of this Agreement, which shall not be construed against either party by reason of its drafting. Neither party shall be deemed in default of this Agreement to the extent that performance of their obligations or attempts to cure any breach (other than for payment of Fees) are delayed or prevented by reason of any act of God, fire, natural disaster, pandemic, accident, riots, acts of government, shortage of materials or supplies, or any other cause beyond the reasonable control of such party. If any provision of this Agreement or application thereof is held invalid, the invalidity shall not affect other provisions of the Agreement and to this end the provisions of this Agreement are declared to be severable.
If there is a conflict or inconsistency between these Advertising Terms, the Playsee User Terms of Service, or the applicable Supplemental Terms and Policies, the order of priority will be: the applicable Supplemental Terms and Policies, these Advertising Terms, and the Playsee User Terms of Service.
You acknowledge that Playsee may present these Advertising Terms in a language other than English for your convenience, but that you are only agreeing to the English version of these Business Services Terms. If there is a conflict or inconsistency between these Advertising Terms in English and in any other language, the English version of these Advertising Terms governs.
