1. ESTABLISHING THE Insertion Order
1.1. Setting out an offer. Upon receiving a request for information from the Customer with a view to displaying an Advertisement, and subject to Ogury’s agreement, Ogury’s sales department sets out an Offer which is sent to the Customer for their approval. The Customer accepts Ogury’s Offer and sends the type of file they will use for their Advertisement for Ogury’s prior agreement, along with, where necessary, the documents and/or information required by the latter. The Customer should accept within the timescale mentioned in the Offer. Ogury will then send the Customer the Insertion Order which the Customer should return, duly signed and with “read and approved” handwritten on it, within 7 days of receipt of the proposed Insertion Order.
1.2. Placement. Except where expressly set out in the Insertion Order, the choice of Advertisement placement in Application remains at the exclusive discretion of Ogury Inc.
1. 3. Rejection, cancellation, modification or withdrawal of an Advertisement by Ogury. If Ogury reasonably believes that the content and/or placement of the Advertisement or any other issue could leave it criminally and/or civilly liable, if the Advertiser is one of Ogury’s competitors, or if the Advertisement runs counter to the customs and values to which Ogury adheres, it reserves the right to:
1.3.1. reject or cancel the Offer;
1.3.2. request modification to the Advertisement design; or
1.3.3. withdraw all Advertisement currently being displayed in Application;
This may be done at any time without offering any reason. Such a rejection does not grant the Customer any right to damages of any nature.
1. 4. Reimbursement of the Advertisement is however possible, depending on the sole judgement of Ogury in light of the reasons leading to the decision to stop the Advertisement. The reimbursement will be made in proportion to the number of days that remain for the Advertisement to be displayed, or the number of advertisements displayed.
1. 5. Nevertheless, Ogury’s acceptance of the Advertisement does not constitute confirmation by it that the content of the Advertisement complies with the provisions of this document and/or the regulations in force, nor does it constitute a waiver of Ogury’s rights in accordance with this document.
1. 6. Ogury reserves the right to submit the Advertisement to the BVP (Advertisement Verification Office) for feedback prior to displaying it. Should the BVP (Advertisement Verification Office) consider that the Advertisement not comply with the regulation in force and/or professional standards, Ogury may decide not to display the Advertisement or to withdraw an Advertisement currently being displayed, at its discretion. In this case, the Insertion Order will be terminated in accordance with the law, without any compensation to the Customer, without prejudice to any damages or interest to be paid to Ogury, should it have suffered damages.
2.1. Ogury does not grant exclusive rights to the Customer.
2.2. The Insertion Order, the provisions thereof, as well as any other information directly or indirectly related to the Insertion Order and/or the Advertisement are confidential (hereafter “Confidential Information”).

2.3. The Customer agrees that none of their managers, employees, and/or representatives will inform the public of the Confidential Information, via press conference and/or press release and/or press article, informational leaflet about the Customer, publicity information or any other means, for any reason whatsoever. Any breach of this obligation by the Customer could give rise to the termination of the Insertion Order, with the Customer unable to claim any payment in this regard.

Ogury can, at its convenience, call in all sums due by the Customer for all services already rendered.
