In order to make a Digital Advertising Campaign solicitation, End Users have to fill in an online registration form available on the Platform in order to create an Account.
Each End User may only create an Account once. We can cancel any subsequent Accounts made by the same End User.
The registration of the End User to create an Account is free of charge.
The End User may request, at any time, cancellation of its Account. However, this does not confer any right to reimbursement of amounts already paid for the use of a previously hired Digital Advertising Campaigns. Upon registration, the End User will designate a user ID and password to access the Account. End User’s Accounts are personal and cannot be transferred.
When filling in the online registration form you must:
- provide true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself; and
- maintain and promptly update such data to keep it true, accurate, current and complete.
We may cancel or eliminate, temporarily or permanently, the End User’s Account at any time if they (i) fail to comply with these T&Cs, (ii) assign their contractual position to third parties without our prior written authorisation and/or (iii) act in such a way as to cause losses to us, other End Users, Resellers or third parties.
If it is necessary to deactivate an End User’s Account, we will inform that End User by e-mail and they should not seek to access the Account using another name or a different login. In cases where you have registered and we have supplied you with Account login details, you acknowledge and accept that it is your responsibility to keep your user ID and password secret and confidential. We will never ask you to share these details with other persons.
The End User must only use their own login details, thereby undertaking full responsibility for any action taken using the same registration, even if by third parties, with or without their express authorisation.
If the End User knows or suspects that someone had access to their Account login details, they must inform us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
By creating an Account, you understand that we may send you communications or data regarding the Platform, including but not limited to: (a) notices about your use of the Platform, including any notices concerning violations of use; (b) updates, via e-mail.
Advertio shall charge the End User for every campaign actively running on the platform.
The price per goal is dynamically calculated during the Digital Marketing Campaign setup and should be valid for 30 (thirty) days after the campaign setup if the campaign was not launched.
After the Digital Marketing Campaign is launched the price is valid for its duration.
By launching a campaign you accept the price per goal quoted by us.
Advertio does not charge any additional fees on top of the price per goal. For avoidance of doubt the price per goal is inclusive of all fees and that is the only amount the End User's wallet will be charged.
Advertio may at its own discretion lower the price charged throughout the Digital Marketing Campaign.
7. Wallet and advertising budget
Placing a Digital Advertising Campaign on the Platform is dependent on the availability of sufficient funds in the Account’s wallet to account for the advertising budget, as explained in detail at http://www.advertio.com. The advertising budget is determined at the time of the Digital Advertising Campaign solicitation.
You may top up the Account’s wallet automatically or manually by credit card using Visa, American Express, or MasterCard or via bank transfer following the receipt of our invoice. Bank transfers are only available upon individual risk analysis.
If the End User selects the auto top-up mode, once the funds in the Account’s wallet reach an amount predefined by the End User, Advert.io will top up the Account’s wallet with the amount predefined by the End User.
If the End User selects the manual top-up mode, in such case where the Account’s wallet lacks sufficient funds for an ongoing Digital Advertising Campaign, Advert.io will suspend such ongoing Digital Advertising Campaign until the Account’s wallet is topped-up with sufficient funds to account for the advertising budget of the ongoing Digital Advertising Campaign.
The advertising budget does not include VAT at the applicable legal rate. VAT will be included in the invoice if applicable.
The invoice for the funds charged pursuant to the Digital Advertising Campaign’s outcomes fulfilment will be issued electronically with the information you provide us and sent to the e-mail address that you indicate, on a monthly basis.
The Digital Advertising Campaign will be active within a maximum period of 48 hours following Advert.io’s acceptance of the Digital Advertising Campaign solicitation, except in cases of force majeure or cases outside of our control.
If at the end of the Digital Advertising Campaign the advertising budget in your Account’s wallet is not entirely spent, the remaining amount will remain in your Account’s wallet for future campaigns.
You may ask for a refund of the remaining amounts in the Account’s wallet. Refunds have a 5% cost of the amount to be refunded, with a minimum fee of 10EUR. Advert.io undertakes to refund you such amounts within 30 days from the refund’s request to the bank account associated with your Account. Advert.io reserves the right to, at any time and in our sole discretion, without notice, and without incurring in liability of any kind, terminate the Account and, consequently, refund the amounts in the Account’s wallet of the End User.
Advert.io may issue promotional campaigns to its End Users to drive engagement in the Platform, namely vouchers. The voucher’s funds are non-refundable and will only be valid to be spent when the refundable funds in the Account’s wallet are already spent in Digital Advertising Campaigns.
