Fees and Payment Terms
Pricing for the Services are displayed on the Site in CPM (“cost per thousand impressions”). In the context of the Adscore Services, an impression is when a web page has been seen successfully fetched and seen by a visitor, whether it is a real human or a bot. Detailed information regarding Pricing for the Services and the way it applies in regards to the number of Impressions that you are routing through the service can be found on the Pricing Page: https://www.adscore.com/pricing. Additionally, you acknowledge and agree with the following terms:
- Your account will get automatically moved to a less expensive pricing tier based on the number of impressions you have generated within a day.
- In the event that your account will see a decrease in traffic over a period of 3 consecutives months, below the threshold of your current tier, we reserve the right to downgrade your tier accordingly.
- Each new Adscore account comes with a Trial Period credit of US$5 that can be used within 30 days of creating the account, to test the Services.
- In exchange for your rights to access the Site and use the Services, after you have exhausted the Trial credits or exceeded the Trial Period, you will need to deposit funds to your Adscore account using the payment tools made available to you via the Adscore Dashboard, to be able to use the Service; the Service currently supports deposits only via PayPal transfers in U.S. Dollars.
All Adscore accounts function under “in advance”, “pre-paid” payment terms. This means that:
- You will need to keep your account’s balance positive, above US$0 (zero) to be able to use the service
- You understand that maintaining your account balance positive is your responsibility and failing to do so will infer your account being deactivated alongside the loss of any and all functionality that you currently have configured within the Service. We do not accept any liability for such loss.
- The Services will only be restored once you have made a deposit to your account that at least should cover an existing negative balance, plus US$10 to ensure that the Services can continue to function for a short while.
The deposited amount does not include any taxes; you will be responsible for, and will promptly pay, all taxes associated with your use of the Site and the Services, other than taxes based on our net income.
At any given time, you can withdraw available funds deposited for The Services and associated with your account, by contacting Support.
You acknowledge that the site and the services are provided on an “as is”, “as available” basis, without warranty of any kind, whether express or implied, and that your use of the site and the services is at your sole risk.
Adscore does not warrant: 1. that the site or the services will meet your specific requirements; 2. that the site or the services will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error-free; 3. that the results that may be obtained from the use of the services will be accurate or reliable; 4. that the quality of any products, services, information, or other material that you purchase or obtain through the site or the services will meet your expectations; 5. that any errors in the site or the services will be corrected.
Adscore specifically disclaims any implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for particular purpose, title, and non-infringement.
You agree, at your sole expense, to defend, indemnify and hold Adscore (and its directors, officers, employees, consultants and agents) harmless from and against any and all actual or threatened suits, actions, proceedings (whether at law or in equity), claims, damages, payments, deficiencies, fines, judgments, settlements, liabilities, losses, costs and expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs, penalties, interest and disbursements) arising out of or relating to:

- your failure to pay any taxes that you owe under these Terms;
- any other actual or alleged breach of any of your obligations under these Terms (including, among other things, any actual or alleged breach of any of your representations or warranties as set forth herein). You will not settle any such claim in any manner that would require Adscore to pay money or admit wrongdoing of any kind without our prior written consent, which we may withhold in our sole discretion.
In no event will Adscore be liable to you or to any third party for any loss of profits, loss of use, loss of revenue, loss of goodwill, interruption of business, loss of data, or any indirect, special, incidental, exemplary, punitive or consequential damages of any kind arising out of, or in connection with these terms or your use (or inability to use) any part of the site or the services, whether in contract, tort, strict liability or otherwise, even if we have been advised or are otherwise aware of the possibility of such damages.
