Self-Service Advertising Terms of Service

The following terms do not apply to Ship2Mates’s managed advertising services. Please contact a Ship2Mates sales representative for an insertion order.

These Self-Service Advertising Terms of Service are effective January 1, 2023.

These Self-Service Advertising Terms of Service (these “Ad Terms”) govern Customer’s use of the self-service advertising portal and associated tools for creation, submission, delivery, measurement, analytics, and related activities associated with any advertising or other commercial or sponsored activity or content (collectively, the “Ad Service”) sold by Ship2Mates, Inc. and its affiliates (“Ship2Mates”), and any advertising campaigns Customer purchases through the Ad Service (“Campaign” or “Campaigns”). The term “Customer” or “you”, as used herein, means the entity whose content will be displayed by Ship2Mates through the Ad Service pursuant to these Ad Terms. Where applicable in respect of the placement of Campaigns through the Ad Service, the term “Customer” may also be used to refer to any agent acting on the advertiser’s behalf (“Agency”). BY ACCEPTING THESE AD TERMS, PURCHASING A CAMPAIGN OR UTILIZING ANY PART OF THE AD SERVICE IN ANY MANNER, CUSTOMER REPRESENTS AND AFFIRMS HAVING READ, UNDERSTOOD, ACCEPTED AND AGREED TO BE LEGALLY BOUND BY THESE AD TERMS.

1.   Account Creation; Access.

  1. In order to use the Ad Service as contemplated by these Ad Terms, Customer must create an Ad Service account (“Account”) after receiving an invite from Ship2Mates. As part of the Account setup, Customer will set log-in credentials for its Account. For certain customers, Ship2Mates may set up log-in credentials for Customer, which Customer may change after logging in. After the initial creation of Customer’s Account, Customer may authorize users, including Agencies, to access and use Customer’s Account on Customer’s behalf for the purposes described in these Ad Terms. It is the Customer’s obligation to validate all approved Account users and to maintain the security of all Account credentials. Customer is responsible for all activity that occurs in its Account, including the actions of each individual and/or Agency with access to Customer’s Account.

2.   The Ad Service.

  1. Customer authorizes Ship2Mates to place advertisements, related technology and other content that Customer provides in connection with the Ad Service (“Ad Content”) on any Ship2Mates or third party product or property made available in connection with the Ad Service (the “Ad Service Properties”). For the avoidance of doubt, Ship2Mates will only place Ad Content on third party Ad Service Properties if authorized by Customer in connection with its Campaign.
  1. Customer is solely responsible for: (i) Ad Content; (ii) applications, content and properties to which the Ad Content directs or redirects any user, including any services and products referenced in the Ad Content or on Customer’s websites, mobile apps, physical stores, or any other physical or digital medium Customer controls (collectively, “Customer Properties“); (iii) its use of the Ad Service, including ad bidding, trafficking, and targeting decisions; and (iv) providing data usage notices to and receiving consents from all users that engage with its Ad Content.
  1. Customer grants to Ship2Mates a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, fully-paid up, transferable and sublicensable right and license to access, use, store, distribute, reproduce, modify, transmit, perform, display and publish the Ad Content in inventory placements on the Ad Service Properties and as otherwise necessary to provide the Ad Services. Except as otherwise agreed to in writing, Customer further grants to Ship2Mates the right and license to reference Customer as a customer and include Customer’s Ad Content in Ship2Mates’s marketing materials and in communications with investors and prospective customers. As between Customer and Ship2Mates, Customer acknowledges and agrees that Ship2Mates owns all right, title and interest (including, all intellectual property and proprietary rights) in and to the Ad Services, the Ad Service Properties and the Reporting Data. Further, Customer understands that once displayed, Ad Content is public information and may be shared and accessed outside of Customer’s targeted audience.
  2. For clarity, Ship2Mates’s Member Agreement, along with any additional terms between Customer and Ship2Mates, including Ship2Mates’s Business Services Terms, govern Customer’s use of any Ship2Mates website, product, or service other than the Ad Service.

3.   Ad Policies.

  1. Customer’s use of the Ad Service must comply with all Applicable Laws (defined below) and is subject to Ship2Mates’s policies made available to Customer (collectively “Ad Policies”), including Ship2Mates’s Community Guidelines and Advertising Policies. Ship2Mates may modify the Ad Policies from time to time.
  2. Ship2Mates may reject or remove Ad Content at any time for any reason including but not limited to where Ship2Mates reasonably suspects or becomes aware that such Ad Content infringes any Applicable Laws, regulations, third-party rights, or Ad Policies.

  4. Ship2Mates may modify or cancel the Ad Service in whole or part at any time.

4.   Campaigns.

  1. When Customer purchases a Campaign through the Ad Service, Customer will inform Ship2Mates of the type of advertising Customer wants to buy, the amount Customer wants to spend, and, if applicable, Customer’s bid. If Ship2Mates accepts Customer’s Campaign, Ship2Mates will deliver Ad Content to the audience Customer specifies; provided, however, Ship2Mates does not guarantee that in every instance Customer’s Ad Content will reach its intended audience.
  2. Ship2Mates will determine the size, placement and positioning of Ad Content in its sole discretion.

12.                 General.

  1. Entire Agreement. These Ad Terms, together with any additional terms that reference these Ad Terms as the controlling document, constitute the entire agreement between Customer and Ship2Mates with respect to the use of the Ad Service.

  2. Ship2Mates reserves the right to monitor and audit your compliance with these Ad Terms.
  3. Amendment. Ship2Mates may amend these Ad Terms at any time. The modified Ad Terms will be posted at a URL available through Customer’s Ad Service account, will not apply retroactively without your prior agreement, and will become effective 7 days after posting, except for changes made for legal reasons, which will become effective immediately. Customer’s continued use of the Ad Services after the effective date of amendments constitutes its acceptance of the Ad Terms, as amended. If Customer does not agree to the Ad Terms, as amended, Customer must stop using the Ad Services.
  4. Termination. Either party may terminate these Ad Terms at any time with notice to the other party, but any continued use by Customer of the Ad Service will be subject to the then-current Ad Terms posted at a URL made available through the Ad Service. Sections 2 (The Ad Service), 3 (Ad Policies), 5 (Payments; Cancellation; and Refunds), 7 (Ship2Mates Pixel), 8 (Data), 9 (Confidentiality), 10 (Indemnity), 11 (Disclaimers; Limitation of Liability) and 12 (General) will survive termination of these Ad Terms.
  5. Governing law. These Ad Terms are governed by Delaware law, without giving effect to any conflict of law principles, except as may be otherwise provided herein.

If a dispute arises (except for payment disputes, which will be resolved as described in the Ad Service Payment Terms), Customer agrees to provide Ship2Mates with notice of the dispute, and to provide a fifteen (15) business day resolution period in which Customer and Ship2Mates may attempt to work out the dispute informally. If, after the fifteen (15) business day resolution period, Customer and Ship2Mates cannot work out the dispute, Customer agrees to bring any dispute or claim arising out of use of the Ad Service and these Ad Terms in binding arbitration before a single, mutually agreed upon arbitrator. The arbitration will be conducted by JAMS, an established alternative dispute resolution provider. Disputes involving claims and counterclaims under $250,000, not inclusive of attorneys’ fees and interest, shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Streamlined Arbitration Rules and procedures available at; all other claims shall be subject to JAMS’s most current version of the Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures, available at Ship2Mates will reimburse all such JAMS filing, administrative, hearing and/or other fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Customer may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person. Any in-person hearing will take place in Dover, Delaware. Judgment on any award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. As an alternative to arbitration, Customer or Ship2Mates may bring a claim in “small claims” court if permitted by that small claims court’s rules. ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES MUST BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT ON A CLASS OR COLLECTIVE BASIS, ONLY INDIVIDUAL RELIEF IS AVAILABLE, AND CLAIMS OF MORE THAN ONE CUSTOMER OR USER CANNOT BE ARBITRATED OR CONSOLIDATED WITH THOSE OF ANY OTHER CUSTOMER OR USER. If a decision is issued stating that applicable law precludes enforcement of any of this subsection’s limitations as to a given claim for relief, then the claim must be severed from the arbitration and brought into the federal or state court located in Dover, Delaware. All other claims shall be arbitrated.
      1. Waiver; Severability. NOTHING IN THESE AD TERMS IS INTENDED TO LIMIT A PARTY’S NON-WAIVABLE STATUTORY RIGHTS. If any provision of these Ad Terms is found invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the remainder of the Ad Terms will remain in full force and effect.

      3. Relationship. No part of these Ad Terms creates any agency, partnership, or joint venture between the parties.
