The following terms shall have the following meanings: "Advertiser" means the "Advertiser" specified in the IO; "Ad" means any advertisement of Advertiser designated in the IO for display on the Sites (including, but not limited to, "banners," "pop-up" and/or "pop-under" windows," "buttons," "text links," and any forms of "rich media") or in a promotional email distributed in connection with the Sites; "Advertiser's Online Content" means the Ads and any splash pages, Web sites and/or other areas outside of the Sites linked to or referenced by the Ads; "IO" means the executed Insertion Order that accompanies these Standard Terms and Conditions; "Agreement" means these Standard Terms and Conditions, together with the IO executed by Advertiser; "Sites" means the applicable Web site(s), which are owned, operated or licensed by REGISTER.COM, as set forth in the IO; and "Term" means the period from the Effective Date of the IO until its termination, as set forth in the Agreement. In addition, certain other capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the meanings assigned to them on the IO.

2. SPECIFICATIONS

Advertiser will provide REGISTER.COM with all Ads pursuant to the requirements set forth in the IO, or other requirements provided by REGISTER.COM in writing. REGISTER.COM shall have the right to approve the form and content of all Ads and no changes by Advertisers shall be made to any Ads without REGISTER.COM's prior written consent. If Advertiser fails to deliver the Ads within the applicable time requirements, or to adhere to REGISTER.COM's previously related technical specifications, or to comply with the IO, or if REGISTER.COM deems any Ads or Advertiser's Online Content to be unlawful or inappropriate, in its sole discretion, then REGISTER.COM, in its sole discretion, may: (1) prevent placement of the Ads on the Sites or cause their removal from the Sites; or (2) postpone running such Ads until a reasonable period of time after (a) the non-conforming Ads are corrected, or (b) the late-arriving Ads are received. To the extent applicable, Advertiser may substitute new content for Ads up to 2 time(s) per 30-day period during the Term hereof. Advertiser will create and deliver to REGISTER.COM all updated Ads in a timely fashion prior to the first run-date for such Ads, and such Ads will be subject to the same review by REGISTER.COM as a new Ad.

3. DELIVERY OF ADS

REGISTER.COM shall place the Ads on the Sites in accordance with the Agreement. All requests regarding position of Ads on REGISTER.COM, other than those set forth in the IO, will be filled at REGISTER.COM's sole discretion. REGISTER.COM may label any Ad as an "advertisement" for clarification purposes. REGISTER.COM may, in its sole discretion, reject or remove any Ad or Advertiser's Online Content, in which event REGISTER.COM will refund any amounts paid in advance for such Ad or a pro-rated portion of such fees for any unfulfilled portion of the IO. Advertiser may not use a third party service to serve or administer any Ad to appear on or in connection with the Sites without REGISTER.COM's prior written consent, in REGISTER.COM's sole discretion.

4. IMPRESSIONS

The parties agree that in the event the advertising campaign contemplated hereunder requires the delivery of a specified number of advertising and/or email Impressions or Clicks (as defined below): (1) Impressions or Clicks in excess of the number specified on the IO shall be at no charge to Advertiser, unless otherwise agreed upon by the parties; (2) in no event shall REGISTER.COM be obligated to continue providing Impressions or Clicks after the number specified on the IO have been delivered; and (3) in the event such advertising services generate fewer than the specified number of Impressions or Clicks, for any reason, including, without limitation, Site redesign, reduced traffic levels, and ad serving system downtime, REGISTER.COM will continue to deliver "make-goods," i.e., additional Impressions or Clicks, until such specified number are delivered. For purposes of this Agreement, "Impression" means each: (i) display of an Ad to a visitor of a Site; or (ii) delivery from a REGISTER.COM email server of an individual email containing an Ad, provided that the occurrence of such Impression is not contingent upon the email recipient opening and viewing the email containing such Ad. For purposes of this Agreement, "Click" means each time that a visitor to the applicable Sites clicks on an Ad with his or her mouse. In the event of a shortfall in delivery, the Agreement will be automatically extended until delivery requirements are fulfilled. Advertiser acknowledges and agrees that it shall not have the right to seek specific performance.

5. PAYMENT

Advertiser will pay REGISTER.COM the fees provided in the IO. REGISTER.COM shall invoice Advertiser monthly, based upon delivery in the previous month, and Advertiser shall pay REGISTER.COM all invoiced amounts within 30 days after the date of the invoice. Such fees are exclusive of, and Advertiser agrees to pay, all sales, use, excise and other taxes which may be levied upon either party in connection with this Agreement, except for taxes based on REGISTER.COM's net income. Overdue amounts shall accrue interest at the rate of 1.5% compounded on a monthly basis until paid, or the legal maximum, whichever is less. Advertiser agrees to pay any fees that remain unpaid upon the expiration or termination of the Term within 15 days thereafter. It is understood that Advertiser and its agency are jointly and severally liable for payment of invoices for Advertising placed on the Sites, and for any fees (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys and collection fees) incurred by REGISTER.COM and its agents enforcing Advertiser's payment obligations under the Agreement. Advertiser shall be solely responsible for all costs it incurs in connection with this Agreement, including, without limitation, expenses associated with creating, updating and delivering Ads to the Sites and establishing and maintaining the Advertiser's Online Content.

6. LICENSE

For the Term of this Agreement, Advertiser hereby grants REGISTER.COM a nonexclusive, worldwide license to use, perform and display any Ads on or in connection with the Sites. Title and ownership of all intellectual property rights in any such Ads shall remain with Advertiser and/or its third party licensors. Advertiser and its agency shall not have, nor claim, any right, title or interest in or to the Sites or any elements thereof, the REGISTER® and REGISTER.COM® marks, or any derivatives thereof, or any other trademarks and logos owned or controlled by REGISTER.COM and displayed through the Sites or otherwise.

7. REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES

Advertiser and its agency warrant and represent at all times that they own and/or have the right to permit the use of the Ads (including, without limitation, all text, graphics, URLs, and sites to which URLs are linked) by REGISTER.COM or its permitted assigns and licensees and that neither the Ads nor the Advertiser's Online Content will: (1) infringe the rights of REGISTER.COM or any third party (including, without limitation, trademark, copyright, patent or other intellectual property rights, privacy rights or publicity rights); (2) violate any foreign or domestic federal, state or local law or regulation, including, without limitation, laws and regulations governing export control, false advertising or unfair competition; (3) be defamatory or trade libelous; (d) be pornographic or obscene; or (e) contain viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancelbots, or other similar malicious code.

8. ADVERTISER INDEMNIFICATION

Advertiser agrees that it shall be solely responsible for any liability arising out of the Ads or Advertiser's Online Content. In furtherance of the foregoing, Advertiser and its agency agree, jointly and severally, to indemnify, defend and hold REGISTER.COM harmless from and against any losses, costs, damages or expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) resulting from claims or actions arising out of or in connection with the Ads or Advertiser's Online Content (including, but not limited to, claims arising from the sale of goods or services by Advertiser) or Advertiser's breach of any agreement, representation or warranty hereunder, including, without limitation, claims for infringement of trademark, copyright, patent or other intellectual property rights and violation of rights of privacy or publicity.

9. PROMOTION

REGISTER.COM may use Advertiser's name (including, without limitation, any trade name, trademark, Web site mark or logo of Advertiser) and make reference to advertising on the Sites and Advertiser's participation therein, without Advertiser's consent, to promote REGISTER.COM and the Sites in all media. REGISTER.COM may also use information concerning impressions and users for REGISTER.COM's own use and for use in connection with the Sites; provided, however, that REGISTER.COM may not reproduce any Ads without Advertiser's prior written consent.

REGISTER.COM PROVIDES THE SITES AND ALL SERVICES PERFORMED HEREUNDER ON AN "AS IS" AND "AS AVAILABLE" BASIS, WITHOUT ANY WARRANTIES OR GUARANTEES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS OF THE SITES FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR AS TO THE TYPE OR NUMBER OF THE SITE'S USERS. REGISTER.COM SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR THE CONTENT OF ANY ADS ON THE SITES, PAGES LINKED TO THE SITES OR ADVERTISER'S ONLINE CONTENT, NOR FOR ANY LOSS, COST, DAMAGE OR EXPENSE (INCLUDING COUNSEL FEES) INCURRED BY ADVERTISER OR ITS AGENCY IN CONNECTION WITH THE PLACEMENT OF ADS ON THE SITES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, FOR ANY TECHNICAL MALFUNCTION, COMPUTER ERROR OR LOSS OF DATA OR OTHER INJURY, DAMAGE OR DISRUPTION TO ADVERTISER'S ADS OR ADVERTISER'S ONLINE CONTENT. IN THE EVENT OF INTERRUPTION OF DISPLAY OR DISTRIBUTION OF ANY AD, REGISTER.COM'S SOLE OBLIGATION WILL BE TO RESTORE SERVICE AS SOON AS PRACTICABLE. SUBJECT TO THE OTHER TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, IN NO EVENT SHALL REGISTER.COM BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT EVEN IF SUCH DAMAGES ARE FORESEEABLE AND WHETHER OR NOT REGISTER.COM HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY THEREOF. IN NO EVENT SHALL REGISTER.COM'S LIABILITY EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID TO REGISTER.COM BY ADVERTISER OR ITS AGENCY HEREUNDER.

Information that is disclosed by one party to the other party, and that is marked "confidential," or which under the circumstances ought reasonably to be treated as confidential information (including, without limitation, the prices, site metrics, visitor traffic, numbers of impressions and clicks, and terms and conditions of this Agreement), will be treated as confidential by the receiving party. The receiving party will not disclose to a third party such information, or use such information other than for the purposes for which it was provided, without the prior written consent of the other party; this limitation will apply for a period of one year after disclosure of such confidential information.
