TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR INTERNET ADVERTISING

Scope. This is an agreement between iQONNECT, LLC (hereinafter referred to as "us", "we" and "our") and the customer ("you" and "your") identified on the first page of this document (the "Order") for us to fulfill your order for our Advertising Products identified on the Order. This Agreement consists of the Order and these Terms and Conditions for Internet Advertising, (these "Ts&Cs"). Except as otherwise expressly provided in these Ts&Cs, in the event of any conflict between the terms of the Order or of these Ts&Cs, the Order shall control.


Term. The term of this Agreement commences on the date of execution by you and will continue until we have fulfilled the Advertising Products specified in the Order for the Initial Term specified in the Order. Unless otherwise provided in the Order and except as provided below in these Ts&Cs, upon expiration of the Initial Term, the term of this Agreement shall automatically renew for a "Renewal Term" unless you or we notify the other of its intent not to renew at least thirty days before expiration of the Initial Term. All services provided during the Renewal Term will be subject to the then-current Terms and Conditions, pricing and other terms for Internet Advertising available on our Web site (such then current Ts&Cs being referred to herein as this Agreement). The Renewal Term will continue from expiration of the Initial Term until termination pursuant to this Agreement. Unless otherwise provided in the Order, either you or we may terminate the Renewal Term, with or without cause, upon thirty days' prior written notice to the other. Neither of us may terminate this Agreement during the Initial Term, provided that we may terminate this Agreement at any time upon notice to you if you breach this Agreement. If you choose to have your Advertising Products removed from any site and/or our services discontinued prior to the end of the Initial Term or Renewal Term, as the case may be, you shall notify us.


Third Parties. You represent and acknowledge that you are entering into this Agreement to obtain the Advertising Products for your own benefit and not for the benefit or on behalf of any third party, including, but not limited to, any of your shareholders, partners, owners, employees, agents or affiliates. 


Rates and Payment. Unless otherwise provided in the Order, we will bill you during our first applicable billing cycle after we fulfill your order for Advertising Products and will continue to bill you during each applicable billing cycle thereafter during the term of this Agreement. The billing cycle will be thirty (30) days unless otherwise provided in the Order. We will bill you for Advertising Products for which no rate is specified in the Order at our standard rates for such Advertising Products at the time that we provide such Advertising Products. Any rates specified in the Order will apply during the Initial Term only. Unless you or we terminate this Agreement at the end of the Initial Term, you will be invoiced for each billing cycle of the Renewal Term at our standard rates during such billing cycle for such Advertising Products. Such standard rates may be higher than the rates set forth on the Order. Payments are due on the due date specified on the invoice or, if no payment date is specified, then thirty days after the date of the invoice. We may remove, or (in the case of Advertising Products placed on Distribution Sites) cause to be removed, your Advertising Products and suspend our services hereunder if payment is not received by the due date. Refunds are provided on a pro-rated basis.  Please contact us if this need arises.


Design of Our Sites, Advertising Products, Statistics and Interruption of Our Services. We may redesign or modify the organization, structure and/or "look-and-feel" of our respective Web sites, Advertising Products, and published set of headings and directories at any time and without notice; we may discontinue or add Distribution Sites at any time in our sole discretion.


Disclaimer of Warranties. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED IN THE ORDER, NEITHER WE NOR ANY DISTRIBUTION SITE MAKES ANY REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES OR GUARANTEES TO YOU OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, NONINFRINGEMENT OR OTHER WARRANTIES ARISING BY USAGE OF TRADE, COURSE OF DEALING OR COURSE OF PERFORMANCE), REGARDING THE FUNCTIONALITY, PERFORMANCE OR RESULTS OF THE ADVERTISEMENTS OR ADVERTISING PRODUCTS, LINKED SITES, ANY SITE WE MAY CREATE FOR YOU, OR OTHERWISE UNDER OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT.


Assignment. You may not resell, assign, transfer or delegate any of your rights, duties or obligations without our prior written consent, which we may grant or withhold in the exercise of our absolute and sole discretion; in the event we give such consent, the assignee must, without any reservation, assume all of your rights, duties and obligations. Any attempt to resell, assign, transfer or delegate such rights, duties or obligations without our prior written consent shall constitute a breach of this Agreement and shall be of no force or effect. We shall have the right to subcontract performance of our obligations hereunder or to assign or otherwise transfer this Agreement or any of our rights, obligations or duties hereunder to any person or entity at any time.


Notices. All of our notices, demands and other communications must be in writing and will be deemed to have been given (a) if mailed by certified mail, postage prepaid, (b) if delivered by overnight courier, (c) if sent by facsimile transmission and such transmission is confirmed as received, or (d) if sent by electronic mail, and such message is confirmed as received, in each case to the address, fax number or e-mail address specified on the Order for the recipient of such notice. All of your notices, demands and other communications must be in writing and will be deemed to have been given (a) if mailed by certified mail, postage prepaid or if delivered by overnight courier, to our address: iQonnect, LLC, 3003 Braintree Rd. Franklin, TN 37069.


Liability. WE SHALL NOT HAVE ANY LIABILITY UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR THE ADVERTISING PRODUCTS FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES RELATING TO LOSS OF PROFIT, LOSS OF INCOME OR REVENUE, LOSS OF GOODWILL, THE REJECTION OR REMOVAL OF ANY ADVERTISING CONTENT, ANY DELAY IN DISPLAYING OR OUR FAILURE TO DISPLAY CONTENT, OR OUR FAILURE TO PERFORM SERVICES. WITHOUT LIMITING THE PROVISIONS OF SECTION 13, IN NO EVENT SHALL OUR LIABILITY FOR MONETARY DAMAGES EXCEED THE AMOUNT YOU HAVE ACTUALLY PAID TO US FOR THE ADVERTISING PRODUCTS OR OTHER SERVICES WITH RESPECT TO WHICH SUCH LIABILITY AROSE. You acknowledge and agree that the provisions of this Agreement that limit liability, disclaim warranties, or exclude consequential damages or other damages or remedies are essential terms of this Agreement and are fundamental to the parties' understanding regarding allocation of risk. Accordingly, such provisions shall be severable and independent of any other provisions of this Agreement and shall be enforced regardless of any breach hereof or other occurrence or condition relating in any way to this Agreement or the Advertising Products. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, YOU AGREE THAT ALL LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY, DISCLAIMERS OF WARRANTIES, AND EXCLUSIONS OF CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OR OTHER DAMAGES OR REMEDIES SHALL REMAIN FULLY VALID, EFFECTIVE AND ENFORCEABLE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THEIR RESPECTIVE TERMS, EVEN UNDER CIRCUMSTANCES THAT CAUSE ANY EXCLUSIVE REMEDY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT TO FAIL OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. The limitations contained in this Section 13 apply regardless of the form of action, including actions in contract, tort (including negligence), and strict liability.


Exclusive Remedies. If we breach our obligation hereunder to fulfill any Advertising Product or breach any other obligation hereunder, we will make commercially reasonable efforts to fulfill such Advertising Product at a later date on the same or substitute site or internet search engine or otherwise reasonably to cure such breach. THE FOREGOING CONSTITUTES OUR SOLE OBLIGATION AND YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR ANY BREACH BY US OF THIS AGREEMENT (EITHER DIRECTLY OR THROUGH A FAILURE OF PERFORMANCE BY ANY DISTRIBUTION SITE).


Force Majeure. In no event shall we or any Distribution Site have liability or be deemed to be in breach hereof for any failure or delay of performance resulting from any governmental action, fire, flood, insurrection, earthquake, power failure, network failure, riot, explosion, embargo, strikes (whether legal or illegal), terrorist act, labor or material shortage, transportation interruption of any kind or work slowdown or any other condition not reasonably within our control. Your payment obligations shall continue during any event of force majeure.


Indemnification. You agree to indemnify us and the Distribution Sites and hold us and the Distribution Site harmless from and with respect to any claims, actions, liabilities, losses, expenses, damages and costs (including, without limitation, actual attorneys' fees) that may at any time be incurred by us or them arising out of or in connection with this Agreement or any Advertising Products or services you request, including, without limitation, any claims, suits or proceedings for defamation or libel, violation of right of privacy or publicity, criminal investigations, infringement of intellectual property, false or deceptive advertising or sales practices and any virus, contaminating or destructive features.


Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and us with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement and supersedes all prior written and all prior or contemporaneous oral communications regarding such subject matter. Accordingly, you should not rely on any representations or warranties that are not expressly set forth in this Agreement. If any provision or provisions of this Agreement shall be held to be invalid, illegal, unenforceable or in conflict with the law of any jurisdiction, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not in any way be affected or impaired. Except as provided in Section 1, this Agreement may not be modified except by writing signed by you and us; provided, however, we may change these Ts&Cs from time to time, and such revised terms and conditions shall be effective with respect to any Advertising Products ordered after written notice of such revised terms to you or, if earlier, posting of such revised terms and conditions on our Web site.
