NEW YORK INTERCONNECT L.L.C.

STANDARD TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

These Standard Terms and Conditions, together with each Insertion Order (whether or not annexed hereto), comprise the agreement (the “Agreement”) between the advertiser identified in the Insertion Order (“Advertiser”) and, if applicable, the agency identified in the Insertion Order, as agent for Advertiser (“Agency”), on the one hand, and The New York Interconnect L.L.C. (“Representative”), as agent for each Company (defined below), on the other. For clarity, any references herein to “Agency” apply only if applicable (e.g. there is an agency representing Advertiser with respect to this transaction).

1. The term “Advertising” shall mean any and all content and advertising materials, including, but not limited to, video, text, and any logos, trademarks, trade names, copyrights, and music contained therein, provided by or on behalf of Advertiser (whether or not Representative or Company assisted in the preparation of the advertising materials) for display on any Company’s media platforms. Representative and Company shall have the right to use Advertiser’s trademarks, service marks, copyrights and logos, as well as to capture and use video clips and screenshots of the Advertising, in connection with marketing and advertising Representative’s or Company’s products and services.

2. “Company” shall be defined as each broadcast television or radio station, cable, satellite or other programming service or Internet or mobile programming service or other system on whose behalf Representative sells commercial or other advertising inventory. It is the intent of the parties hereto that each Company is a third party beneficiary of all provisions of this Agreement and neither Agency nor Advertiser shall assert any claim, crossclaim or counterclaim against a Company in the event it participates in an action brought by Representative or in an action brought by a Company against Agency and/or Advertiser.

3. In the event that Representative does not require prepayment, Representative shall invoice Advertiser or Agency. All payments must be received within thirty (30) days of Agency’s or Advertiser’s receipt of invoice, without any deduction or right of set-off or counterclaim. Upon Agency’s or Advertiser’s request, Representative may include verifications of performance with monthly invoices issued hereunder, but the furnishing and accuracy of such verifications shall not be a condition precedent to Agency’s or Advertiser’s obligation to timely pay any such invoice. Representative and Company shall not be liable to Agency or Advertiser for, and makes no representations or warranties with respect to, such verifications, except that, in the case of systems owned by Company or any entity that controls, is controlled by or is under common control with Company (a “Company Affiliate”), such verifications shall accurately reflect the internal log for the system on which the Advertising was distributed. Interest shall be assessed on late payments at the rate of 1.5% per month (or, if less, the highest rate permitted by law). All payments shall be sent to Representative at the address indicated herein or on invoices. Timely payment is of the essence of the Agreement. If Representative fails to receive timely payment or if Advertiser’s or Agency’s credit is, in Representative’s reasonable opinion, impaired, Representative, in its sole discretion, may cancel the Agreement. In the event that Representative determines, in its reasonable opinion, that Advertiser’s credit is impaired, Representative may require Agency to execute a separate Letter of Liability.

4. All programming for which Advertising is specifically purchased and the scheduling thereof is subject to change. In the event Advertiser has contracted for the insertion of Advertising for a specific program and such program is cancelled and never shown, such Advertising shall be shown on comparable replacement programming to be mutually agreed upon by the parties. Representative or Company shall have the right to omit any Advertising at any time in its sole discretion, in which event the Agreement shall be automatically extended until all Advertising insertions have been made. Notwithstanding any provision contained in the Agreement to the contrary, in the event Representative or Company fails for any reason to deliver the insertion of Advertising as set forth in the Order Form (including without limitation failure to insert any Advertising at the time or date or on the program service or show contracted for, failure to display overlays, failure of RFI functionality, and any other failure to failure of advanced advertising products), Company and/or Representative’s sole liability, and Advertiser’s Agency’s sole recourse, shall be for the re-deliver the insertion of the affected Advertising at another time or a credit.

7. Agency and Advertiser represent and warrant that there is no page or hyperlink on any website advertised within any Advertising pertaining to any online gambling website, application or platform that offers gambling within a U.S. State in which it is not properly licensed.
