TreepHub Terms and Conditions
Last Modified February 2019
TreepHub, Ltd, a Lagos corporation (“TreepHub” or “we”), allows registered advertisers or Agencies (“Advertiser or Agency”, “You” and “Your”) to upload their advertisement onto the TreepHub platform (“Advertising Platform”). Adverts will be run on TreepHub and/or its affiliates display networks. Advertisers pay per seconds run sent by TreepHub and/or its affiliates and will pay no more than the maximum advert run within the TreepHub platform. Signing up for TreepHub’s Advertising Platform does not guarantee that any or all of the advert submitted will be accepted by TreepHub or that such advert will generate any traffic to Advertiser’s or Agency’s site. TreepHub reserves the right to reject and/or remove any advert submitted by Advertisers as well as the right to reject any advertiser for any reason or no reason. Advertiser acknowledges and agrees TreepHub has no obligation to disclose any information regarding its rejection and/or removal of any advert, or advertisers, and TreepHub has sole discretion over what information it chooses to disclose to Advertiser, if any. If an advertiser is not allowed on the platform prior to running any campaigns, any funds added will be voided.
TreepHub will provide Advertiser and Agency with access to the TreepHub platform subject to the Advertiser’s or Agency’s or agency’s compliance with the terms and conditions contained in these terms and conditions (the “Agreement”). Please read this Agreement carefully prior to signing up for an TreepHub advertising account. This Agreement is subject to change by TreepHub at any time. This Agreement governs Your access to and use of TreepHub’s website and any services provided thereunder or in connection therewith as an Advertiser, and constitutes a binding legal Agreement between You and TreepHub. Certain areas of the TreepHub website (and Your access to or use of certain areas or portions of the website or related services) may have different terms and conditions posted or may require You to agree with and accept additional terms and conditions. If there is a conflict between this Agreement and terms and conditions posted for a specific area of the website or related services, the latter terms and conditions will take precedence with respect to Your use of or access to that area of the site or related service, as applicable. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, BY CLICKING ON THE “I AGREE” OR “I ACCEPT” BUTTON, OR ACCESSING OR USING THE TREEPHUB WEBSITE OR RELATED SERVICES OR BY DOWNLOADING OR POSTING ANY CONTENT FROM OR ON THE WEBSITE OR THROUGH THE SERVICES, YOU ARE INDICATING THAT YOU HAVE READ, AND THAT YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY, THESE TERMS, WHETHER OR NOT YOU HAVE REGISTERED ON OR THROUGH THE WEBSITE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS AGREEMENT, THEN YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO ACCESS OR USE THE TREEPHUB WEBSITE OR RELATED SERVICES. If You accept or agree to this Agreement on behalf of a company or other legal entity, You represent and warrant that You have the authority to bind that company or other legal entity to this Agreement and, in such event, “You” and “Your” will refer and apply to that company or other legal entity. TreepHub reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify this Agreement, at any time and without prior notice. If we modify this Agreement we will post the modification on TreepHub website or provide You with notice of the modification. By continuing to access or use the TreepHub website or related services after we have posted a modification on the website or have provided You with notice of a modification, You are indicating that You agree to be bound by the modified Agreement. If the modified Agreement is not acceptable to You, Your only recourse is to cease using the website and any related services pursuant to the terms of the Agreement.
TreepHub, for purposes of this Agreement, is the process provider for web users (each a “Web User”) interested in a desired subject, and Advertisers who bid for related keywords or categories. When these related keywords or categories generally produce a result that contains Advertiser’s or Agency’s ads that match users interests, the Web User may be redirected to the Advertiser’s or Agency’s website. In connection with Your use of TreepHub’s website and related services and to enable TreepHub to serve Your advertisements via TreepHub’s website, third-party publisher websites, email and/or applications, You grant TreepHub an unlimited, non-exclusive, fully-transferable, worldwide, royalty-free, fully-paid right and license to use, reproduce, modify, create derivative works from, distribute, perform, transmit, and display Your advertisements in any format, layout or size. TreepHub disclaims all liability relating to Your advertisements and related content. As between TreepHub and You, You are solely responsible for Your advertisements, any services or products offered through Your advertisements and any websites that are linked to from Your advertisements. Third-party publishers may include but are not limited to search, domain, email, contextual, and display web content. TreepHub does not represent or warrant the quality of traffic delivered to Advertiser nor if any contextual ad or how much of a contextual ad will be displayed across the network. Additionally, the format of Your advertisement may vary and TreepHub makes no representations as to the format of Your advertisement. For example purposes, and without limitation to other examples that may apply, when a Web User clicks on a travel link from a participating publisher’s website that may be displaying the Advertiser’s or Agency’s travel related ad or a generic travel ad, the Web User may or may not be redirected to the travel keyword Advertiser’s or Agency’s website. Advertiser is aware that they have opted in to emails that may be sent from the TreepHub Team.
TreepHub requires payment in advance for all Advertiser accounts. Advertisers must initially fund their accounts in order to activate their campaign. Only accounts with positive balances of at least as much as the Advertiser’s or Agency’s lowest advert length shall remain active. The advertiser will not be able to run any advert, until the account is funded. Advertiser agrees to pay all applicable charges to the account with respect to the payment method selected in accordance with billing terms in effect at the time the fee becomes payable. Advertiser understands and agrees that their account will be charged for all runs/views of Advertiser’s or Agency’s ads. Display advertisement pricing will be based on the number of advert run and slot price as stated in the relevant purchase order. TreepHub is not responsible for the maintenance of Advertiser’s or Agency’s website. Payments to TreepHub must be made by credit card (Visa or Mastercard), wire transfer, Paypal, or net terms (upon approval). Advertiser agrees, warrants and represents that all information provided for the purpose of enrolling as an Advertiser will be accurate, complete and current. Advertiser’s or Agency’s right to access an account with TreepHub is subject to any limits established by TreepHub, its contractors or by Advertiser’s or Agency’s credit/charge. If payment cannot be charged to Advertiser’s or Agency’s credit facility for any reason, or if there is a charge back for any reason, TreepHub reserves the right, in its sole discretion, with or without notice, to either suspend or terminate Advertiser’s or Agency’s account with TreepHub. TreepHub’s final billing to Advertiser shall be conclusively presumed by Advertiser to be accurate and proper. Advertiser waives all rights to challenge or seek to charge-back any billings. Nothing stated herein shall limit rights granted to a cardholder by Visa, MasterCard and/or its issuing bank.
Advertiser agrees to pay all charges to its account in accordance with TreepHub’s terms. Advertiser acknowledges that the payment obligation hereunder is based solely on the number of clicks/views and not on Advertiser’s or Agency’s ability to convert clicks/views to sales or any other criteria. Advertiser warrants and represents that all payment information provided to TreepHub will be accurate and complete, and current. In the event that TreepHub is unable to charge Advertiser’s or Agency’s credit card, TreepHub may, in its sole discretion with or without notice, suspend or terminate the Advertiser’s or Agency’s participation in the Advertising Platform. NOTICE OF LOST OR STOLEN CARD/FRAUDULENT USE OF CARD Advertisers must promptly inform TreepHub of any and all of the following: loss or theft of the credit card used in relation to this program; changes in the expiration date of the credit card; changes in home or billing address; apparent breaches of security with the account, such as loss, theft, unauthorized disclosure or use of an ID or password; and any and all other changes pertaining to the credit card account which may affect the ability of TreepHub to expeditiously obtain payments due to TreepHub or its billing agent. You agree that if You ever have overdue payment, TreepHub may engage in collection efforts to recover such amounts from You. These collection efforts may involve contacting You directly, submitting Your information to a collections agency, or legal action. SHOULD YOU FAIL TO PAY, TREEPHUB MAY UNILATERALLY DECIDE TO IMPOSE REASONABLE FEES ON YOUR ACCOUNT, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE COST OF COLLECTIONS OR OTHER LEGAL ACTIONS AND PUNITIVE FEES IN EXCESS OF OUR INCURRED COSTS.
All payments will be made based on clicks/views and revenue generated as determined by TreepHub’s tracking.
Advertiser may suspend or cancel participation in the TreepHub Advertising Platform by providing forty-eight (48) hours written notice to TreepHub.com. Following such notice, Advertiser will be entitled to receive a refund for all amounts not yet charged to account. TreepHub may cancel Advertiser’s or Agency’s participation in the Advertising Platform at any time for any or no reason. TreepHub reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify, discontinue or terminate the website or any related services (including without limitation, the Advertising Platform), at any time and without prior notice. Advertisers will forfeit any deposited funds if they are terminated due to a breach in the rules of advertising on the platform outlined in the Advertiser’s or Agency’s Rights and Responsibilities section. All unused credits or promotional credits will expire after 6 months. Credits or promotional credits will be applied toward traffic after the initial deposit is used and are nonrefundable. It is agreed between the parties that TreepHub shall have the right to delete keywords and/or campaigns that have not received traffic within a reasonable amount time. TreepHub reserves the right to delete accounts that have been inactive for an extended period of time.
