Sinclair Digital Agency's Provision of Services and Reservation of Rights
The Terms of Your Relationship with Sinclair Digital Agency
This Advertising Agreement (this "Agreement") is entered into as of the date shown in the “Advertising Package Details” section set forth above or agreed to separately by the parties, by and between Sinclair Digital Agency, and the undersigned advertiser (the "Advertiser", “you” or “your”). Any additional or different terms including terms in any purchase order or order confirmation will have no effect unless expressly agreed to in writing by Sinclair Digital Agency and notice of objection to them is hereby given. Neither Sinclair Digital Agency’s acknowledgment of a purchase order nor Sinclair Digital Agency’s failure to object to conflicting, different, or additional terms and conditions in a purchase order shall be deemed an acceptance of such terms and conditions or a waiver of the provisions hereof..
Authorization and Payment
You hereby authorize the Agreement as described in the Advertising Package Details and this Agreement. You assume full responsibility for payment of all charges for said advertisements and services, including any applicable sales, telecommunication, excise or similar taxes, to the payment method that you provided at the time of subscription activation, whether placed individually or through your authorized agents or delegates. By your electronic signature below, you confirm that you are authorized to bind your company or firm to the terms set forth in this Agreement, that all information you have submitted in connection with this Agreement is complete and correct, that the terms set forth herein become a binding contract upon you, your company or your firm and that you and your company or firm each have the necessary financial ability and willingness to pay for all goods and/or services promptly and in accordance with all applicable terms and conditions. Sinclair Digital Agency shall be entitled to claim interest on any overdue amount at the rate of 1.5% per month. If you do not pay any overdue amount within fifteen (15) days of a written delinquency notice, Sinclair Digital Agency may suspend performance of any or all services, without limitation or waiver of any other right or remedy available under this Agreement or at law. If Sinclair Digital Agency is required to retain a collection agency or attorney to collect any overdue payment, all reasonable collection costs, including but not limited to attorneys’ fees, will be paid by you.
Term and Termination
The term of this Agreement shall be a fixed period specified in the Advertising Package Details and, unless either party provides the other with written notice (email is sufficient as written notice) of termination at least fifteen (15) business days prior to the end of the initial Agreement term, the Agreement shall renew automatically for successive one-month extension terms thereafter and Sinclair Digital Agency will charge the credit card you provided upon activation, unless you provide Sinclair Digital Agency with an alternate payment method prior to expiration of the then-current initial or extension term. During this month-to-month extension period, either party may terminate the Agreement by providing written notice (email is sufficient as written notice) to the other at least fifteen (15) business days prior to the end of the then-current monthly period. If you received promotional or discount pricing (i.e., pricing below Sinclair Digital Agency’s list prices, including any free trial) during the initial term, you will be charged list prices during any month-to-month extension period. In the case of a free trial, Sinclair Digital Agency may, in its sole discretion, notify you that your free trial is about to expire or has expired. Whether or not Sinclair Digital Agency elects to warn you about the expiration of your free trial, if you fail to cancel your subscription before the end of your free trial, you will be responsible for all charges applicable to the initial Agreement term in accordance with the terms set forth in the section above entitled “Authorization and Payment”. If you are a current Sinclair Digital Agency subscriber to a specific service or have previously participated in a free trial for a specific service, you are not eligible to receive a free trial for the same service.
Sinclair Digital Agency reserves the right, upon thirty (30) days' prior notice to you via fax or email, to adjust pricing under this Agreement, after the end of the agreement term of your contract. Any changes to your pricing will be effective upon your next billing cycle, and will not apply retroactively or to the remainder of your current term.
Either party may terminate this Agreement at any time in the event of a material breach of the Agreement by the other party where such breaching party does not cure such breach within thirty (30) days of written notice thereof. In the event of a termination for Sinclair Digital Agency’s uncured material breach of the Agreement, Sinclair Digital Agency will refund to Advertiser any fees applicable to the period during which Sinclair Digital Agency was in breach of the Agreement.
To cancel your subscription, please send written notice via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call customer service at 866-413-9530 during business hours of 7am-4pm PST (M-F). Cancellation requests sent to any other telephone number, email or contact may not be received or processed.

Unless otherwise explicitly stated in this Agreement, Sinclair Digital Agency retains all right, title and interest in and to any video included with your Advertising Package Details, but you may purchase the video at Sinclair Digital Agency’s then- current list price for such video.
Your coupons will be provided through the Coupon Network™, unless you inform Customer Support that you do not wish to participate. The Coupon Network is a service which allows advertisers to create, manage and distribute promotional coupons across a network of websites, email and mobile applications (“Partners”). The Partners to which the coupons are distributed and the rules associated with distribution or coupon management will vary over time and Sinclair Digital Agency reserves the right, in its sole discretion and at any time, to make any changes to these or other aspects of the service; provided, however, that Sinclair Digital Agency will use all commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the Sinclair Digital Agency Coupon Network maintains an appropriate mix, quantity and quality of Partners in order to ensure that it remains a value-added service for our Partners and customers. Sinclair Digital Agency reserves the right to charge additional fees for enhanced versions of the Coupon Network service in the future (for example, if Sinclair Digital Agency introduces a premium version of the service, which may carry a greater burden of third-party costs and expenses than the regular version, or in the context of a performance- based variant of the service) and/or to place a limit on the number of coupons printed within a specific time period. You will always have the option to opt-out of the Coupon Network, for any reason, by accessing your account or calling customer service at 866-413-9530.

If, in Sinclair Digital Agency’s sole discretion, its agreement or arrangement with the applicable media company or publisher owning or operating the primary website(s) on which Advertiser’s listings are displayed, and to which reference is made in the Advertising Package Details summarizing the terms of your order, terminates, expires, or changes in such a way as to have a material adverse effect on Sinclair Digital Agency’s ability to deliver the promised placement, Sinclair Digital Agency reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to either (1) cancel the Agreement with seven (7) days’ written notice, in which case Sinclair Digital Agency will refund any fees paid for the then-current term on a pro rata basis based on the time remaining in the then-current term; or (2) substitute an equivalent placement (as determined in Sinclair Digital Agency’s discretion) within the same market on similar websites and/or mobile applications.
Limitation of Liability
NOT WITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY CONTAINED IN THIS AGREEMENT, NEITHER SINCLAIR DIGITAL AGENCY NOR ITS SUPPLIERS WILL BE LIABLE TO ADVERTISER WITH RESPECT TO ANY SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT UNDER ANY CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, TORT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR OTHER LEGAL OR EQUITABLE THEORY FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOSS OF GOODWILL OR ACTUAL OR ANTICIPATED REVENUE, PROFITS OR LOST BUSINESS), EVEN IF SINCLAIR DIGITAL AGENCY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
