MidoWeb may set up an account for the publisher with his consent in his stead.
  • The following publisher terms form part of each agreement, concluded as described above, or any other confirmed or otherwise concluded agreement between MidoWeb and the publisher, even – with respect to future agreements – if the publisher terms have not been expressly agreed upon again. The publisher terms and the respective campaign terms shall be collectively referred to as “the agreement”. If the I.O. and these terms contradict each other, the I.O, shall prevail.
  • The campaign terms will be sent via email or Skype by MidoWeb. Any terms and conditions of publishers that are contrary to or deviate from or are supplemental to these publisher terms and/or the campaign terms shall not be recognized unless the express written consent of MidoWeb has been provided. The applicability of these publisher terms shall not be impaired by the fact that MidoWeb – with knowledge of any terms and conditions of a publisher, that are contrary or supplemental to or deviate from these publisher terms – renders the MidoWeb services without reservations.
  • If Publisher operates a network with its own publishers (“Sub-Publisher(s)”), Publisher shall bear full responsibility for ensuring Sub-Publishers comply with the Agreement, regardless of any fault, but shall remain fully and solely responsible for Publisher’s obligations under this Agreement. In the case of a breach of the Agreement by a Sub-Publisher, Publisher shall remove the Sub-Publisher from its network and not include it in future partner programs with MidoWeb or the Advertiser.
  • The campaign terms stated within the MidoWeb network shall become automatically part of the publisher terms with the application of the publisher to a partner program and / or the integration of the advertiser ads on the publisher media.

  1. Obligations of the publisher, advertiser ads
  • The advertiser ads and implemented tracking pixels or other appropriate tracking means serve to identify the publisher as a member of the partner program and will establish a link from the publisher media to the advertiser media.

  • MidoWeb’s tracking technology shall be the sole system to track applicable Actions and produce a report thereof (“Tracking Report”). Publisher may access preliminary results on the MidoWeb Platform. The Tracking Report shall be the sole source for issuing credit notes.
  • MidoWeb is entitled to refrain from confirming an Action as being valid, if the Action has not been approved by the Advertiser or is not valid as per the I.O.. Furthermore, an Action is non-valid and therefore not subject to a commission, if the Action:
    1. is not compliant with the Agreement;
    2. is caused through a form of misuse, by procuring Actions through means that violate the Agreement or applicable laws;
    3. is not caused by a natural person, but through a robot, spider, computer script, cookie or other fraudulent method;

  • MidoWeb acts as a third party for advertisers, therefore Publisher understands and agrees that payment for Publisher’s revenue is dependent upon payments from advertisers to MidoWeb that it has received without any restrictions.
