2MANYAPPS SRL is a company with legal seat in Piazzale delle Belle Arti 2, 00196 Rome, ITALY (“2MANYAPPS”) that acts, amongst other things, as agency for third party advertisers (“Advertised Companies”).
These terms and conditions (“Standard Terms”) shall be deemed incorporated by reference into any insertion order (the “Insertion Order” or “IO”) submitted by 2MANYAPPS as agency and shall govern the Insertion Order.
Contractual relations are established between 2MANYAPPS and you, the Publisher, and not between you and 2MANYAPPS’ advertising clients. For the purposes of this Agreement, “Publisher” shall mean both direct publishers and advertising networks.
The Standard Terms and Insertion Order shall be collectively referred to as the “Agreement”. In case of discrepancies between these Standard Terms and the terms in the Insertion Order, the terms in the Insertion Order shall prevail.
1. TERM OF AGREEMENT.
The Term of this Agreement commences on the Start Date set forth in the Insertion Order and terminates on the End Date set forth in the Insertion Order.
2. CANCELLATIONS / MODIFICATIONS VIA EMAIL.
Except as otherwise provided in the IO, 2MANYAPPS may cancel the IO, in whole or in part, by written notice (email valid) effective within 24 hours after the notice has been sent unless a different period was agreed on the IO (“Change Period”).
The same period applies for any requests of 2MANYAPPS to modify an existing campaign (email valid). Such modifications become valid upon unreserved confirmation by the other Party or when Publisher continues serving the campaign after expiry of the Change Period. Therefore, if Publisher does not agree with a modified offer, Publisher must stop the campaign in question.
3. ADVERTISING MATERIAL (THE “CREATIVE”).
(a) The Creatives including the links provided by 2MANYAPPS must not be changed without the prior written consent of 2MANYAPPS. 2MANYAPPS must approve the final Creative. 2MANYAPPS hereby grants to Publisher a limited, non – exclusive license to use, display, transmit and distribute the advertisement and all contents therein solely for the limited purpose of fulfilling the advertising services covered by this Agreement as specifically requested by 2MANYAPPS and only in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
(b) If Publisher uses third parties to serve the advertisement hereunder (“Third Parties”), then Publisher shall be liable for such Third Parties complying with the obligations set forth in this Agreement.
(c) Except as expressly set forth in the Insertion Order, the specific positioning of advertisements by the Publisher shall be approved by 2MANYAPPS’ contact person listed in the Insertion Order.
(d) Publisher shall be liable for any unauthorized use of the Creative. Creatives must not be placed in any illegal environment or on media blacklisted by 2MANYAPPS.
(e) 2MANYAPPS reserves the right to suspend the use of any Creative at any time.

(e) Budgets agreed on an IO do not represent a binding commitment but a binding cap and must not be exceeded without prior written approval by 2MANYAPPS.
(f) In case a pre-paid budget has not been fully used, Publisher shall, at 2MANYAPPS’ choice, either pay back all overpaid amounts without delay or keep serving the Creatives until the prepaid amount has been fully used.

Failure to cure may result in non-payment for all Actions for which data is incomplete or missing until Publisher delivers reasonable evidence of performance; such report will be delivered within 30 days of Publisher’s knowledge of such failure or, absent such knowledge, within 180 days of delivery of all Deliverables.
(c) If numbers reported by Publisher are higher than 2MANYAPPS’s numbers, the Parties shall negotiate a mutually agreeable basis for invoicing.
