6. Payments and Invoicing
- 6.1. Ogury shall pay Publisher for its use of the Monetization Service. The amount due to Publisher (“Publisher’s Net Earnings”) shall depend on the volume of Impressions displayed by Ogury on the Digital Properties or clicks or other interactions with such advertisements by End-Users (as determined by Ogury in its sole and absolute discretion) and the price per any thousand Impressions an ad unit receives (“CPM”).
– 6.1.1. In the event the Monetization Service is enabled through a standard ad unit, Ogury and Publisher may agree a CPM on the Site or otherwise in writing (“Expected CPM”), in which case Publisher understands that such Expected CPM is an estimate and subject to fluctuation due to the use of an Ogury algorithm to optimize campaign results.
– 6.1.2. In the event the Monetization Service is enabled through a Header Bidding ad unit, the CPM payable to the Publisher for an Impression will be equal to the bid price at which Ogury won the auction for the applicable inventory.
Publisher acknowledges that all payments hereunder shall be based on Ogury’s measurements which will be made available for each calendar month through the Site, in a draft invoice, following the end of such month. If Publisher disputes the amount of any draft or final invoice it must do so no later than one month after the date of the draft invoice being published.
- 6.2. In order to validate a draft invoice and/or request payment the total amount due to Publisher (under one or more draft invoices) must be USD 50 or more (or currency equivalent) and Publisher must have provided all the information required in the My Account and My Bank Info section of the Site. The date of invoice shall be the date Publisher validates the draft invoice using the Site. Ogury shall pay amounts due under any invoice within 30 days of the end of the month in which it is dated.
- 6.3. Publisher’s Net Earnings displayed on the Site are exclusive of any value added or sales taxes. Any applicable value added or sales taxes, calculated on the basis of the information provided by Publisher, will be added to the amount payable on any invoice and be considered as final. Ogury shall not be held liable for any additional amounts to be paid due to Publisher’s failure to provide the correct billing information on the Site.
- 6.4. If Ogury fails to pay any invoice that is due after receiving notice that payment is overdue from Publisher, interest of 2% above the annual base rate of the Bank of England shall be payable on any such overdue balance.
- 6.5. If Ogury, based on the billing information submitted by Publisher, is required to withhold any taxes on payments to Publisher under this Agreement Ogury shall withhold such amounts and pay the same to the relevant tax authorities as required. Ogury shall provide documentation regarding such withholding and payment on request by Publisher. Ogury shall not be liable for any additional withholding taxes to be paid due to Publisher’s failure to provide the correct billing information on the Site nor required to increase any payments to Publisher as a result of any such withholding and payment to tax authorities.
- 6.6. Publisher shall indemnify Ogury in respect of taxes imposed by any jurisdiction which are the responsibility of Publisher and any liability (including penalties, in addition to tax, interest and expenses) arising therefrom or with respect thereto, whether or not such taxes were correctly or legally imposed.
- 6.7. Bank Charges. Publisher shall be responsible for any charges payable as a result of receiving funds into the account or service it has nominated to receive payment. Publisher may select their preferred payment method via the Site. A payment processing fee will be applied depending on the payment method chosen. In the event of payment rejection due to incorrect information provided by Publisher, additional charges may apply to Publisher. More information on current payment methods and bank charges is available via the Site.
- 6.8. Currencies. All amounts payable to a Publisher in respect of its use of the Monetization Service are calculated in USD. Publisher may request an alternative currency for invoicing and payment via the Site. If Publisher selects EUR or GBP the base USD amount will be converted at the average exchange rate, elected by Ogury in its discretion, applicable to the relevant month. If Publisher chooses a currency other than USD, EUR or GBP, the invoice will be shown in the default currency USD, but the payment will be made in the selected currency at the then current exchange rate applied by our payment partner and may be subject to additional fees (including for currency conversion and payment processing) which will be deducted from the amount payable. Ogury shall use reasonable endeavours to make information regarding the applicable exchange rates and fees available via the Site but Publisher shall be responsible for any such additional fees and all the risks relating to any currency conversion requested by Publisher.
- 6.9. Publisher shall not be entitled to payment in respect of any Impressions (a) that are Invalid Impressions or otherwise result from a breach of the Agreement; (b) any Impressions via which Ogury serves a transparency and consent notice; or (c) for which Ogury has not been paid by an advertiser, media agency or any other third party such as but not limited to a DSP.
- 6.10. If Publisher is VAT-registered in the UK, it shall enter into a self-billing agreement on Ogury’s standard terms where requested by Ogury.
Ogury may at any time, in its absolute discretion, with or without notice to Publisher, suspend Publisher’s use of the Monetization Service, as a whole or in relation to a specific Digital Property.
Ogury assumes no responsibility or liability whatsoever for the content of the advertisements and Publisher understands that Ogury does not produce content but rather facilitates interactions between publishers and advertisers by providing advertisements on behalf of advertisers to the End-Users. In the event that Publisher objects to the content of any advertisement served via Ogury as part of the Monetization Service its sole remedy shall be to notify Ogury in writing following receipt of which Ogury shall use reasonable endeavours that such advertisement is not displayed via Digital Property again.
