Any and all disputes, claims and controversies arising out of or in connection with your access to, and/or use of the Sites, and/or the provision of content, services, and/or technology on or through the Sites shall be governed by and construed exclusively in accordance with the laws and decisions of the State of New York applicable to contracts made, entered into and performed entirely therein, without giving effect to its conflict of laws provisions, except to the extent that law is inconsistent with or preempted by federal law. To the extent that a dispute is not subject to arbitration under Section 12 (Dispute Resolution) of this Agreement, that action shall be brought in the appropriate state or federal court located in New York County, New York; and we both irrevocably consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the state or federal courts in New York County, New York for the adjudication of all non-arbitral claims.
Except as specified in Section 12 (Dispute Resolution), if any provision of this Agreement shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable for this Agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. This is the entire agreement between the parties relating to the matters contained herein.
12. Dispute Resolution.
Except in relation to intellectual property rights and claims arising from bodily injury as set forth in Section (1) below, we each agree to resolve those disputes through binding arbitration or small claims court instead of in courts of general jurisdiction.
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Unless expressly limited by this Dispute Resolution provision, arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Any arbitration under this Agreement will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. For any non-frivolous claim that does not exceed $75,000, we will pay all costs of the arbitration. Moreover, in arbitration you are entitled to recover attorneys’ fees from us to at least the same extent as you would be in court.
In addition, under certain circumstances (as explained below), we will pay you more than the amount of the arbitrator’s award and will pay your attorney (if any) twice his or her reasonable attorneys’ fees if the arbitrator awards you an amount that is greater than what we have offered you to settle the dispute.
(1) Claims Subject to Arbitration: TBS and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between us, except for claims arising from bodily injury or that pertain to enforcing, protecting, or the validity of your or our intellectual property rights (or the intellectual property rights of any of our licensors, affiliates and partners). This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to:
- claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, fraud, misrepresentation or any other statutory or common-law legal theory;
- claims that arose before this or any prior Agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising);
- claims for mental or emotional distress or injury not arising out of physical bodily injury;
- claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and
- claims that may arise after the termination of this Agreement.
References to “TBS,” “you,” and “us” include our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, licensees, licensors, and providers of content as of the time your or our claim arises; our respective predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns (including AT&T and its affiliates); and all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of Services under this or prior Agreements between us. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an action in small claims court seeking only individualized relief, so long as the action remains in that court and is not removed or appealed to a court of general jurisdiction. This arbitration agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. You agree that, by entering into this Agreement, you and we are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. This Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement.
(2) Pre-Arbitration Notice of Disputes: A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to TBS should be sent by certified mail to: General Counsel, Warner Media, LLC, 30 Hudson Yards, New York, NY 10001-2170 (“Notice Address”). The Notice must (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”).
If we and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or we may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by us or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or us is entitled. You may download a form to initiate arbitration at: adr.org/sites/default/files/Consumer_Demand_for_Arbitration_Form_1.pdf.
(3) Arbitration Procedure: The arbitration will be governed by the Consumer Arbitration Rules (“AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this arbitration provision, and will be administered by the AAA. (If the AAA is unavailable, another arbitration provider shall be selected by the parties or by the court.) The AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by requesting them in writing at the Notice Address. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope and enforceability of the arbitration provision or whether a dispute can or must be brought in arbitration are for the court to decide. The arbitrator may consider but shall not be bound by rulings in other arbitrations involving different customers. Unless we and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. Except as provided in subsection (6) below, the arbitrator can award the same damages and individualized relief that a court can award under applicable law.
(4) Arbitration Fees: After we receive notice at the Notice Address that you have commenced arbitration, we will promptly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for greater than $75,000 in value. (The filing fee currently is $200 but is subject to change by the arbitration provider. If you are unable to pay this fee, we will pay it directly upon receiving a written request at the Notice Address.) We will pay all AAA filing, administration, and arbitrator fees for any arbitration initiated in accordance with the notice requirements above. If, however, the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all such fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such case, you agree to reimburse us for all monies we previously paid that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. In addition, if you initiate an arbitration in which you seek relief valued at greater than $75,000 (either to you or to us), the payment of these fees will be governed by the AAA rules.
(5) Alternative Payment and Attorney Premium: If you initiated arbitration in accordance with the notice requirements above in subsection (2) and the arbitrator issues an award in your favor that is greater than the value of our last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected, then we will:
- pay you the amount of the award or $10,000 (“the alternative payment”), whichever is greater; and
- pay your attorney, if any, twice the amount of attorneys’ fees, and reimburse any expenses (including expert witness fees and costs) that your attorney reasonably accrues for investigating, preparing, and pursuing your claim in arbitration (“the attorney premium”).
If we did not make a written offer to settle the dispute before an arbitrator was selected, you and your attorney will be entitled to receive the alternative payment and the attorney premium, respectively, if the arbitrator awards you any relief on the merits. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees, expenses, and the alternative payment and the attorney premium at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits. In assessing whether an award that includes attorneys' fees or expenses is greater than the value of our last written settlement offer, the calculation shall include only the portion of the award representing attorneys' fees or expenses that you reasonably incurred pursuing the arbitration through the date of our settlement offer.
The right to the attorney premium supplements any right to attorneys’ fees and expenses you may have under applicable law. Thus, if you would be entitled to a larger amount under the applicable law, this provision does not preclude the arbitrator from awarding you that amount. However, you may not recover both the attorney premium and a duplicative award of attorneys’ fees or costs. Although under some laws we may have a right to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses if we prevail in an arbitration, we agree that we will not seek such an award.
(6) Requirement of Individual Arbitration: The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR OUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and we agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative, class, or private attorney general proceeding. If, after exhaustion of all appeals, any of these prohibitions on non-individualized declaratory or injunctive relief; class, representative, and private attorney general claims; and consolidation are found to be unenforceable with respect to a particular claim or with respect to a particular request for relief (such as a request for injunctive relief sought with respect to a particular claim), then that claim or request for relief shall be severed , and all other claims and requests for relief shall be arbitrated.
(7) Future Changes to Arbitration Provision: Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if we make any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to the Notice Address), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to the arbitration Notice Address provided above. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this provision.
Neither TBS nor you shall be liable for damages or for delays or failures in performance resulting from acts or occurrences beyond their reasonable control, including, without limitation: fire, lightning, explosion, power surge or failure, water, acts of God, war, terrorism, revolution, civil commotion or acts of civil or military authorities or public enemies: any law, order, regulation, ordinance, or requirement of any government or legal body or any representative of any such government or legal body; or labor unrest, including without limitation, strikes, slowdowns, picketing, or boycotts; inability to secure raw materials, transportation facilities, fuel or energy shortages, or acts or omissions of other common carriers.

Is this job for you?
When you see a job you're interested in, carefully review the job description and determine if you meet the minimum requirements. Those requirements are a must and it wouldn't be productive to apply if you do not meet them.
In addition, you should review any "preferred" requirements that may be indicated. The more your background and skills are aligned with preferences and the requirements, the better the chance that you'll be a good match with the company and vice versa.
Our recruiters review resumes for required experience, skills and abilities, education requirements and relocation consideration. They must identify the best candidates from the applicant pool; therefore those that do not meet the minimum requirements may not be contacted. Ensure that positions you are applying for are a match or a natural next step. The roles you have previously held should support and complement the position for which you are applying.

In all such instances, Agency and Advertiser are responsible for and must promptly reimburse Turner for all attorneys’ fees, costs, expenses, judgments, and/or settlements as they are incurred. The provisions of this paragraph shall survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement.
7. GENERAL (a) No conditions, printed or otherwise, appearing on Agreements, insertion orders, or instructions, which conflict with the provisions of this confirmation Agreement will be binding on Turner, unless agreed by the parties.
(b) Unless otherwise agreed by Turner and Agency or Advertiser, with respect to on-line advertisements, Turner shall have the right to insert the advertising in various areas of the applicable website from time to time in its discretion and all advertising positioning/placement clauses or conditions will be treated as requests and cannot be guaranteed. Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, with respect to on-air advertisements, Turner will telecast the advertising and programs covered by this Agreement on the date and at the approximate hour and time agreed upon by the parties. Advertising placed in VOD services shall be available according to the schedule agreed by the parties. Turner shall have no obligation to telecast for the benefit of any person other than Agency and Advertiser or for a product or service other than that agreed upon by the parties.
(c) Turner agrees to hold Agency and the other subsidiaries of Agency Group (collectively, "AG"), solely liable for payment to Turner to the extent proceeds have cleared from its Advertiser clients (each, an "Advertiser") to AG for any amount payable to Turner. For sums owing but not cleared to AG, or for sums cleared but subsequently returned by AG to Advertiser or its successor or estate in bankruptcy (in any case the “Trustee”),Turner agrees, except as stated otherwise herein, to hold the Advertiser solely liable. AG will make reasonable commercial efforts to collect payment from Advertiser. AG acknowledges and agrees that in the event Advertiser payment is at least 30 days past due and/or in the event a petition under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code is filed by or against AG, Turner may contact Advertiser directly with respect to payment and pursue any other collection activities in its sole discretion, and in such event Advertiser shall be liable directly to Turner. In the event AG is subject to a claim or action by Advertiser or a Trustee for the return of any amount paid to AG for the benefit of Turner under the preferential transfer or other avoidance provisions of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code (an "Avoidance Action"), AG shall notify Turner and AG shall use its best efforts to defend such Avoidance Action in good faith, subject to Turner’s approval.
Advertiser and/or Agency will pay for all such services within thirty (30) days of the date of the invoice. Interest will be added to all past due payments at the lesser of eighteen percent (18%) per annum or the maximum payment by law, calculated from the date of the invoice. Advertiser and Agency agree to pay and be liable for all costs of collection, including, without limitation, court costs and 15% of principle and interest due as attorneys’ fees pursuant to OCGA section 13-1-11.
(d) Orders for advertising shall be non-cancelable after ten (10) business days prior to the first date on which it is scheduled to appear within the specified Turner site, network or service and through the advertising period agreed to pursuant to the insertion order.
(e) Advertiser and/or Agency shall notify Turner in writing within thirty (30) days from the date of invoice of any discrepancy or disagreement with any telecast, advertisement, service, and/or the amount charged for the same. Advertiser’s and/or Agency’s failure to report any such discrepancy or disagreement in writing within such time will constitute a waiver of any claim relating to such discrepancy or disagreement. Advertiser and/or Agency shall pay all uncontested portions of invoices pursuant to the terms set forth herein. Interest may accrue as set forth above on any late payments.
(f) The parties will attempt to make up for audience shortfalls, if any, versus the quarterly guidelines set forth above through the provision of Audience Deficiency Units (ADUs). The parties will work together to do so within the 12 months immediately following the end of flight; if they cannot do so within 24 months of the end of flight, Advertiser agrees that Turner will have delivered on this contract in full and in no event has any further obligations under this contract.
(g) Unless otherwise specifically agreed upon by the parties, no cash discounts, volume discounts or other discounted rates will apply.
(h) Turner, Agency and Advertiser acknowledge that they will have access to certain trade secrets and other non-public confidential information of each other during and in connection with the performance of services ("Confidential Information"), and each hereby agrees not to disclose any Confidential Information to any third party and not to use any such Confidential Information for any purpose other than the performance of services pursuant to these Standard Terms. All such Confidential Information and trade secrets are and shall remain the exclusive property of their respective owner and no license shall be granted or implied with respect to such Confidential Information or trade secrets by reason of access to the same in connection with the performance of services hereunder. The foregoing agreement of non-use and nondisclosure shall survive any termination or expiration of any agreement between the parties and shall continue in full force and effect for a period of three (3) years from the date of the Agreement.
(i) This agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Georgia, without regard to its conflicts of law principles or provisions. Any suit, action or proceeding brought in connection with or arising under this Agreement that is commenced by Advertiser or Agency against Turner must be brought in a Federal, State or local court of competent jurisdiction located in Fulton County, Georgia. In addition, Advertiser and Agency hereby expressly consent that any Federal, State or local court of competent jurisdiction located in Fulton County, Georgia shall have personal jurisdiction over them with respect to any suit, action or proceeding brought in connection with or arising under this Agreement that is commenced by Turner.
(j) In the event of a breach hereof by Turner, the exclusive remedy of Advertiser and Agency therefore shall be a credit for substituted advertising time of equal value, and in no event shall Turner be liable for any consequential or incidental damages, or monetary damages of any type.
(k) This Agreement is subject to the terms of licenses held by Turner and is subject also to all laws and regulations now enforced or which may be enacted in the future, including but not limited to the rules and regulations of the Federal Communications Commission and Ofcom, where applicable.
(l) As used herein the term "Turner" shall refer to Turner Broadcasting System, Inc., on behalf of itself and/or any of its relevant subsidiaries, and its and/or their networks, as well as owned or controlled digital platforms (“Media Company”) and/or platforms on which Media Company has a contractual right to serve advertising (collectively “Turner”).
(m) The party placing advertising on behalf of Advertiser and Agency acknowledges that it has the authority to do so and that by its placement has caused both Advertiser and Agency to be bound by the terms hereof. Agency shall be deemed to be acting as the principal and the authorized agent for any advertiser for whom Agency may order advertising or related services and/or on whose behalf Agency places advertising with Turner, including, without limitation, Advertiser and Agency agrees that it has the authority to legally obligate Advertiser as provided herein.
(n) A waiver by Turner of any of the terms or conditions of this Agreement shall not be deemed to be a waiver of such terms or conditions for the future, or of any subsequent breach thereof, nor shall any such waiver relieve Agency or Advertiser from their obligations to comply strictly with the terms and conditions of this agreement.
(o) If any term or condition of this Agreement is declared invalid or unenforceable, the remainder of this Agreement shall not be affected thereby, and each remaining term or condition of this Agreement shall be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.
(p) Advertiser and Agency acknowledge and agree that time is of the essence in this Agreement.

Advertising Standard Terms and Conditions
- APPLICATION: The terms and conditions of this contract between Cable News Network, Inc. and/or any of its subsidiaries or divisions (CNN) and Agency and Advertiser, for the placement of any form of advertising or promotion (Advertising) on any CNN service including all networks, platforms, applications and websites owned, operated, or controlled by CNN, and such websites on which CNN has the contractual right to serve Ad Materials ( all such sites, Sites and all such services collectively CNN Services). These Standard Terms, along with the applicable Letter of Confirmation (LOC) or Insertion Order (IO), as applicable, constitute the agreement with respect to the specific advertising placement on CNN Services (Agreement). In this Agreement Company means:
- the Advertiser who has executed the LOC or IO, as applicable; or (b) where the LOC or IO as applicable, has been executed by an Agency on behalf of an Advertiser, Company means the Advertiser and Agency jointly and severally. These Standard Terms accommodate a variety of transactions on one or more CNN Services and in the event that a section of the Standard Terms is not relevant to a specific transaction then such section will not apply. On the condition that the LOC/IO has been mutually agreed and is signed by both parties, orders for Advertising are non-cancelable.
- TERMINATION: CNN may terminate this Agreement at any time: (a) upon material breach by Company;
- if CNN considers that performance of this Agreement is in breach of applicable law, including but not limited to in breach of privacy laws, anti-bribery laws, codes, rules and regulations relating to advertising content and any industry codes or rules by which Company may be bound, such as OFCOM; (c) if Company fails to pay CNN within thirty (30) days from the date of any invoice and/or if in CNN's reasonable opinion, the credit of Company is impaired, and (d) upon breach by Company of any warranties in either paragraph 7 and/or paragraph 13(d), the limitation of liability and indemnification in paragraph 10, the data terms in paragraph 9 and/or the confidentiality terms in paragraph 12. Upon such termination, all unpaid accrued charges are immediately due and payable. Termination is without prejudice to any right or remedy accruing prior to the date of termination. If CNN breaches this Agreement, the exclusive remedy of Company will be a credit for substituted advertising time of equal value, and CNN is not liable for any special, consequential or incidental loss or monetary damages of any type. CNN will not issue refunds or credits.
- ONLINE REPORTING AND INVOICING: CNN will track ad delivery through its own reporting from its designated first party ad server. For contract based media buys, CNN will invoice Company based on the agreed contract rate and payment schedule. For performance based media buys, CNN will report and invoice based on actual impressions delivered. Invoice reconciliation will occur at the request of the Company where the difference between CNN’s reported impressions and the Company’s third party ad server’s reported impressions is greater than 10%. Media buys that are based on share of voice, are time based, include roadblocks and/or homepage takeovers, and/or include Custom Materials (defined below), are billed on a flat fee basis. There is no impression guarantee for such media buys, regardless of the share of voice delivered or contracted. Company will remain liable to CNN for amounts due for any custom content and/or development and production of all content and all revisions to it (Custom Materials) commissioned to CNN by Advertiser or completed by CNN or its third-party vendor prior to the effective date of termination.
Agency and Advertiser acknowledge and assume full responsibility, jointly and severally, for payment of all Advertising and related expenses incurred, ordered, and provided on behalf of the Advertiser by CNN. Payment for all advertising services provided by CNN are due and payable within thirty (30) days from the date of the invoice. Interest is added to all amounts thirty (30) days or more past due at the highest legal rate permitted under the law of these terms and conditions, calculated from the date of invoice. Should timely payments not be made, Company agrees to pay all costs of collection, including attorney's fees of fifteen perecent (15%) and court costs, if collected by law or through an attorney at law.
In the event that Advertising thresholds for any Advertising campaign fall below guaranteed levels, as set forth in the LOC/ IO, and/or if there is an omission of any ad (placement or creative unit), Company and CNN will endeavor to agree upon the conditions of a make-good flight of advertising, either in the LOC or IO or at the time of the shortfall. If no make-good can be agreed upon, Company may execute a credit equal to the value of the under-delivered portion of the LOC or IO for which it was charged provided, however that such credit must be consumed within 24 months from the last date of the original Advertising campaign unless CNN agrees otherwise in writing.
- PRE-EMPTIONS: CNN does not guarantee the Advertising will be transmitted strictly in accordance with Advertising bookings. CNN may cancel any telecast, transmission, exhibition of any Advertising or any portion of Advertising covered by this Agreement for any reason, including telecasting any program or event which, in CNN’s sole discretion, CNN deems to be of public interest or of significance. CNN is not in breach of this Agreement as a result of such cancellation. In the event a satisfactory substitute date and time is not agreed upon for the transmission of such cancelled Advertising, that part of the Advertising so pre-empted shall be deemed cancelled and CNN shall waive the charges allocable to the cancelled transmission only.
- OMISSION OF DELIVERY: All Advertising bookings must be made at least seven (7) business days before the first scheduled transmission date. If as a result of a major news event, act of God, force majeure, public emergency, labour dispute, restriction imposed by law or other governmental order, technical failure or for any other cause beyond CNN's reasonable control, CNN fails to exhibit the Advertising, CNN will not be in breach of this Agreement but CNN may substitute a reasonably satisfactory date to transmit or exhibit such omitted Advertising and if no such date is available CNN will waive the time charges allocable to the omitted transmission only and that part of the Advertising shall be deemed cancelled.
- ADVERTISING: All Advertising must be furnished to CNN and delivered to it at Company's sole cost and expense. Such Advertising, together with any instructions pertaining to it, must be delivered not less than five
(5) business days in advance of the scheduled delivery and/or transmission. At CNN’s discretion, CNN may require Company to submit a script, storyboard, edits, designs and/or written content of the Advertising for CNN’s review up to ten (10) business days in advance of the first scheduled delivery or transmission date. All Advertising materials furnished must not be contrary to the public interest, must not infringe on any third party rights, must conform to CNN's policies, quality standards and technical requirements and are subject to CNN’s prior approval and continuing right to reject, remove, suspend the delivery of or require editing of such materials. Any software code or vendor tags placed on any Ad Materials that run on CNN’s site must be approved and certified by CNN. CNN retains the right to remove any software code placed on Ad Materials that threatens or otherwise causes a disturbance to CNN’s Sites. In the event that Advertising is not received in time, is delivered incorrectly or, in CNN’s sole opinion is unsuitable for transmission, then CNN’s obligation to transmit the Advertising will be reduced on a pro-rata basis without affecting the total cost to be paid by Company.
- WARRANTIES: Company represents and warrants, and takes full responsibility to ensure, that: (a) it is authorized and has obtained all necessary clearances, permissions, approvals, authorizations, rights and licenses necessary for CNN's delivery of all elements contained in the Advertising for all uses and geographical areas covered by the relevant advertising campaign, ; (b) all Advertising complies with all applicable laws (including applicable libel, slander and defamation laws), privacy laws, codes, rules and regulations relating to advertising content and any industry codes or rules by which Company may be bound, including but not limited to OFCOM regulations and any regulations with respect to the procurement of services and/or media by government authorities (where applicable); (c) no Advertising contains any software viruses or spyware or any other computer code, files or programs designed to interrupt, destroy, or limit the functionality of any computer software or hardware or telecommunications equipment, or otherwise to materially, adversely alter the user experience; (d) no Advertising contains any adware (including any software code or vendor tags) or any other software designed to covertly or overtly gather user information through the user's internet connection; (e) no Advertising contains any unauthorized embedded interactive triggers or other software that automatically diverts users from any Site or CNN Service or contains fake hyperlinks or interactivity, or triggers a pop-up, pop-under or dialogue box or initiates a downloadable application; (f) Company holds sufficient rights and authority to grant CNN the right to use the Advertising (including any materials in the Advertising delivered that is contributed by or on behalf of Company) and that neither those materials nor their inclusion in the Advertising will infringe or violate the rights of any person or entity, including any intellectual property, privacy or publicity right; and (g) all Advertising is accurate and all claims contained in the Advertising have been substantiated.
- CUSTOM MATERIALS: Company will provide CNN with all reasonable co-operation in order that CNN may produce Custom Materials as economically, efficiently and promptly as possible. CNN agrees to consult with Company in relation to production of any Custom Materials, provided, however that, Company acknowledges that CNN retains sole control over production of all Custom Materials and, with respect to sponsored editorial content, sole editorial control. Company will provide any material for incorporation in such Custom Materials as CNN may reasonably request and such material will be of an appropriate standard. In the event Company fails to provide such co-operation and the Custom Materials cannot be transmitted as Advertising in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, Company will remain fully liable for the total cost of the production of the Custom Materials. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, CNN owns all Custom Materials, with the exception of any Advertiser intellectual property (Advertiser IP) that Advertiser provides to CNN to be included in the Custom Materials.
- DATA: Unless otherwise authorized by CNN, Company and any third party technologies on which Company relies in the course of delivery of the Advertising, will not use Site Data for Repurposing (except to the extent that Performance Data may be used for Repurposing so long as it is not joined with any Site Data) or disclose Site Data to any affiliate or third party. CNN retains exclusive ownership and control over Site Data, and Company has no such ownership interest or license in it. Site Data means any data that is: (a) pre-existing CNN data used by CNN pursuant to the LOC / IO; (b) gathered pursuant to the IO during delivery of Advertising that identifies or allows identification of CNN, the Site, brand, content, context or users as such (including mobile identifiers), or (c) CNN data entered by users on any Site. Performance Data is data regarding an Advertising campaign gathered during the delivery of Advertising pursuant to the LOC/ IO (e.g., number of impressions, interactions, and header information), but excludes Site Data. Repurposing means retargeting a user or appending data to a non-public profile regarding a user for purposes other than performance of the LOC/IO, such as for building audience segments tied back to CNN or CNN users, for use in online preference marketing to CNN users, for device graphing, or to perform tracking of CNN users. Company must not permit any third party ad server service provider (Third Party) to use any information received about CNN users or any usage information related to any CNN Services for any purpose other than to fulfil its obligations to Company in connection with the Advertising. Company will procure that any Third Party engaged by it treats any Site Data and Performance Data as the Confidential Information of CNN.
- LIMITATION OF LIABILITY & INDEMNIFICATION: Company indemnifies and holds CNN harmless from and against all claims, demands, debts, obligations, costs, losses, liabilities or charges (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and disbursements) whatsoever that arise from: (a) Company’s breach of this Agreement; (b) the transmission, exhibition or serving of Advertising furnished by or on behalf of Company, (c)the preparation of Advertising (including Custom Materials), (d) the content or subject matter of any Advertising (including Custom Materials to the extent such Custom Materials contain Advertiser IP) or (f) the contemplated delivery of Advertising furnished by or on behalf of Company or furnished by CNN at the request of Company (Advertiser or Agency) for use in connection with the Advertising or Custom Materials. If Agency has signed the LOC, the above indemnity is given by Agency and Advertiser jointly and severally (without limiting the above indemnity) in respect of a breach by either of them and in relation to any materials provided by either of them. The provisions of this paragraph survive the termination or expiration of the applicable LOC /IO. No party’s liability to another party for: (i) death or personal injury resulting from the negligence of itself, its servants or agents; (ii) fraud; or (iii) any other liability the exclusion of which is prohibited or limited by law, shall be excluded or limited by the provisions of this Agreement, save to the extent permitted by law.
- TAXES: Each party shall be responsible for any personal property taxes on property it owns or leases, for franchise and privilege taxes on its business, and for taxes based on its net income or gross receipts. Advertiser shall be responsible for any sales, use, excise or similar taxes payable by Advertiser on any goods or services used or consumed by Advertiser in the performance of this Agreement. If Advertiser is required by law to deduct or withhold from any amount otherwise payable to CNN under this Agreement, then: (a) the amount payable by Advertiser shall be increased as necessary so that after making all required deductions (including deductions applicable to additional amounts payable under this section) CNN receives an amount equal to the amount it would have received had no such deductions been made; (b) Advertiser shall make such deductions, and (c) Advertiser shall pay the full amount deducted to the relevant tax authority in accordance with applicable law. If, in relation to any payment to CNN, any VAT, GST, turnover tax or similar tax is required to be paid, Advertiser will pay that tax to the authorities and pay the full amount of any payment to CNN.
- CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION: Confidential Information will include: (a) all information marked as Confidential, Proprietary, or similar legend by the disclosing party (Discloser) when given to the receiving party (Recipient), and (b) information and data provided by the Discloser, which under the circumstances surrounding the disclosure should be reasonably deemed confidential or proprietary. Without limiting the foregoing, Discloser and Recipient agree that each Discloser’s contribution to an LOC or IO shall be considered such Discloser’s Confidential Information. Recipient will protect Confidential Information in the same manner that it protects its own information of a similar nature, but in no event with less than reasonable care. Recipient shall not disclose Confidential Information to anyone except an employee, agent, Affiliate, or third party who has a need to know same, and who is bound by confidentiality and non-use obligations at least as protective of Confidential Information as are those in this section. Recipient will not use Discloser’s Confidential Information other than as provided for on the LOC or IO. The foregoing agreement of non-use and nondisclosure shall survive any termination or expiration of any agreement between the parties and shall continue in full force and effect for a period of three (3) years from the date of the Agreement. Confidential Information does not include information which: (i) was previously known to Recipient; (ii) was or becomes generally available to the public through no fault of Recipient; (iii) was rightfully in Recipient’s possession free of any obligation of confidentiality at, or prior to, the time it was communicated to Recipient by Discloser; (iv) was developed by employees or agents of Recipient independently of, and without reference to, Confidential Information, or (v) was communicated by Discloser to an unaffiliated third party free of any obligation of confidentiality. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Recipient may disclose Confidential Information of the Discloser in response to a valid order by a court or other governmental body, as otherwise required by law or the rules of any applicable securities exchange, or as necessary to establish the rights of either party under these Terms; provided, however, that both Discloser and Recipient will stipulate to any orders necessary to protect such information from public disclosure.

(iii) to induce any person to use their influence with a government or a public or private entity to commit an improper act with an intention to obtain or retain business or to secure an improper business advantage for Advertiser or Agency.
