Ad Eligibility Requirements

All ads that you upload to the GetIntent RTB platform must comply with:
  1. GetIntent’s technical requirements. These are updated from time to time, and will normally be communicated to you within the RTB platform;
  2. the applicable rules of the website publisher upon whose site you want your ads served. These rules define the kind of ads that the publisher deems permissible, and are updated from time to time. The latest version of such rules can be found within the RTB platform. If you are uncertain as to whether your ad meets the publisher’s guidelines, you should contact a GetIntent representative prior to uploading your ad in order to avoid interruptions, penalties, account suspension or closure;
  3. GetIntent’s Creative Policy and any other ad quality guidelines or policies that GetIntent implements. GetIntent’s Creative Policy applies not only to your ads, but also the landing page to which your ad clicks-through. GetIntent will notify you of any new ad quality guidelines or policies by either emailing you (to the email address you have provided) or by posting a notice within the RTB platform. Your continued use of the Services after such notification affirms your acceptance; and,
  4. the applicable laws in the United States of America, Canada, the country in which you live, and any country where your ads are served. Due to the fluid nature of GetIntent’s business, some or all of the above requirements may change over time. You must review each on a regular basis to ensure your on-going compliance.

Ad Responsibility

You are solely responsible for all ads that you create, upload or traffic using the Services. GetIntent is not liable for any loss or damage that your ads may cause to you or others. You represent to GetIntent that you have all rights and permissions necessary to traffic your ads using the Services.

Ad Quality Review

GetIntent must approve each ad that you upload before you will be permitted to begin displaying such ad. To increase the likelihood that your ad will be approved, you should ensure that your ad fits within the size parameters specified and complies with all of the applicable submission requirements.

Infractions

GetIntent may periodically review live ads to ensure on-going compliance with submission requirements, even if an ad has already been approved. GetIntent reserves the right to remove any ad that it believes is non-compliant with its ad eligibility requirements, or for any other reason. In addition to removing an ad, GetIntent may also suspend and/or delete your account.

Third Party Ad Serving

GetIntent only permits the use of third party ad server tags in certain cases. If you wish to use such tags, you must complete an ad server tag request form and accept the GetIntent RTB Ad Tag Usage Policy.

Purchases

By bidding on ad inventory through the GetIntent RTB platform, you are making a programmatic offer to purchase such ad inventory. If your offer is accepted, you have purchased such inventory. Purchases are non-cancellable. Ad inventory purchases are calculated using GetIntent’s statistics and data. If these differ from any other statistics or data, GteIntent’s measurements will prevail.

Payment Methods

GetIntet accepts credit card and wire transfer as payment methods. All monetary amounts related to the Services are in U.S. dollars.

GetIntent uses third-party providers to process payments. As such, GetIntent is unable to make any guarantees as to how long it will take to post funds to your account. If you use a credit card, the funding payment is usually processed and credited to your account immediately. If you send a wire transfer or use PayPal, the processing and posting of funds to your account may take a few days.

If your account has been compromised or is being used in an unauthorized manner, you must immediately notify GetIntent. You should regularly log into your account and review the details of your spending to ensure that there has not been an unauthorized transaction or other error.
