All comments, feedback or materials submitted by Publisher to Ogury about the SDK or the Service, including feedback, testimonials, images, reviews, questions, comments, suggestions or ideas (collectively, "Feedback") shall be received and treated by Ogury on a non-confidential and unrestricted basis.
1.6. Upgrades. If Ogury makes available to Publisher any modifications to the SDK, including any upgrades, patches, enhancements, custom builds, or fixes, then, with respect to Publisher, those modifications shall immediately become part of the SDK and subject to this agreement, and Publisher shall promptly implement the same. Ogury has no obligation under this agreement to provide any such modifications, or any other support (other than as set forth in clause 2). Any obligation of Ogury to Publisher arising from Publisher’s use of the SDK is limited to the then-current version of the SDK. Ogury may, in its sole discretion, make support services available on a paid basis under a separate agreement.

6. PAYMENTS AND INVOICING
6.1. Subject to the terms and conditions of this agreement, Ogury shall pay to the Publisher amounts calculated based on the provision of the Ogury Service. The volume of impressions or clicks that are taken into account to calculate the Publisher amount shall not exceed the volume of impressions or clicks that are invoiced to advertisers and/or media agencies. The Publisher acknowledges that all payments hereunder shall be based on the Ogury algorithm displaying Publisher reports through the Ogury Site following the end of each month. For the avoidance of doubt, all payments hereunder are based on validated amounts from the Publisher Application that are actually fulfilled via the Ogury Service. Calls for invoices are made available on the Ogury dashboard dedicated to Publishers. Prior to any consultation or validation of a call for invoice, Publisher must complete in the "My Account" section on the dashboard all the mandatory information.
6.2. Payment Terms. Ogury agrees to pay the Publisher amounts within 30 days after the end of the month in which the Publisher has validated his call for the invoice concerning the applicable net revenue, provided that the net revenue earned by the Publisher in that month is above $50. Date of invoice is the date when Publisher validated its invoice on the Ogury’s dashboard. All unpaid earnings will rollover to the next pay period. Publisher earnings are quoted exclusive of any taxes but the payment made by Ogury to the Publisher shall be inclusive of any and all taxes, including VAT when applicable, dependent upon the location and VAT status that the Publisher has indicated. The Publisher shall be responsible for the payment of all applicable taxes and the remuneration paid here-above shall not be adjusted upward to account for such taxes. The Publisher acknowledges and agrees that any validated invoice cannot be challenged after more than one month from the validation date. If Ogury fails to pay any invoice that is due after receiving notice that payment is overdue from the Publisher, interest of 2% above the base rate of the Bank of England shall be payable on any such overdue balance.
6.3. Bank Charges. Ogury can not be held responsible for any bank charges received by the Publisher as a result of receiving funds into international banking institutions. Ogury takes all steps possible to avoid any charges for the Publisher when making payments, however, it is the responsibility of the Publisher to pay any charges out of Ogury’s control. Publishers are asked to define their preferred payment method on their invoice and the Publisher is therefore responsible for any charges on their side from this point thereon. Ogury will deduct a banking charge of 3% from all payments of revenue up to and including $650 per month. Publisher revenue of greater than $650 per month will have a $20 banking charge deducted as standard. Ogury will never deduct more than $20 of revenue per publisher per month for bank charges.
6.4. Currencies. All publisher earnings are calculated by default in USD. The Publisher selects a currency in which to receive a payment when they complete their information in the Ogury Platform. If the Publisher elects to receive payment in USD, EUR, or GBP then no currency exchange fees will apply to the amount remitted by Ogury. The exchange rate that will be used for EUR and GBP is the average monthly exchange rate of the relevant month, and the invoice will be displayed in this chosen currency. If the Publisher elects to be paid in a different currency other than USD, EUR or GBP, the invoice will be shown in the default currency USD, but the payment will be made in the selected currency by our payment partner in accordance with the then current exchange rate applied by our payment partner. Publisher acknowledges that it takes the risk of this exchange rate, the conversion fee and Publisher’s own associated bank charges if applicable.
6.5. Ogury will not be obligated to pay for any fraudulent impressions, clicks or other actions generated by any person, bot, automated program or other device or mechanism in connection with any advertisements, as reasonably determined by Ogury in its sole discretion. You agree that if Ogury reasonably determines that such fraudulent actions have occurred, Ogury may deduct any amounts as are determined by Ogury in its sole discretion from amounts otherwise payable to you. Ogury reserves the right to withhold all payments if it considers that Publisher has engaged in activity that is in violation of this clause or of these T&Cs.
7.1. This agreement commences on the date when you sign up to our Services via our Site and shall continue until terminated in accordance with this agreement. Either party may immediately terminate these T&Cs for material breach by giving written notice. Either party may terminate this agreement at any time for any reason or for no reason upon at least thirty (30) days’ prior written notice to the other party. Upon any termination of this agreement, Publisher will cease distribution of any Application that incorporates the Ogury SDK and, upon request, certify the same in writing to Ogury within five (5) business days of such termination. Any provision of this agreement which by its nature extends beyond its termination shall remain in effect until fulfilled and apply to any successors and authorized assigns.
8.1. Each party agrees not to disclose Confidential Information (defined below) without the other party’s prior written consent and to use at least the same degree of care to prevent unauthorized use and disclosure of Confidential Information as it uses with respect to its own confidential information of like importance (but in no event less than a reasonable degree of care). “Confidential Information” includes (i) business and technical information related to the discloser’s operations, including but not limited to: products, procurement, project plans, requirements, business terms, people, processes, information systems, facilities, logistics, finances, sales, and; marketing (ii) that given the circumstances surrounding its disclosure or the nature of the information a reasonable person would conclude to be confidential. Confidential Information does not include information that: a) that at the time of disclosure is published or otherwise in the public domain; (b) that after disclosure becomes part of the public domain other than through a breach of confidence or confidentiality; (c) that was known to the recipient prior to receipt from discloser, provided such prior knowledge can be substantiated by documentary evidence antedating the disclosure by discloser; (d) that is disclosed to recipient by a third party (other than employees or agents of either party) that in making such information available to recipient, is not in violation of any obligation of confidentiality to discloser; or (e) that is independently developed by recipient, provided such independent development can be substantiated by documentary evidence antedating the disclosure by discloser.
9. ACCOUNT IDENTIFIERS
9.1. When setting up the Publisher’s online Publisher account, the Publisher will choose unique and personal account identifiers, including a login and password. The login (i) identifies the account and (ii) allows him to connect to the Publisher access area. The login cannot be changed and identifies the Publisher’s account uniquely and permanently. The password is specific to the account and the Publisher is not authorized to sell, transmit, sublicense or disclose it to third parties. The Publisher is responsible for the Publisher’s password and undertakes to keep it confidential. The Publisher is fully responsible for the activity on the Publisher’s account. Passwords can be modified by Ogury in the case of loss or theft of passwords, or if the Publisher suspects that a third party might be able to use them. The Publisher is responsible for the accuracy of the information associated with the account (especially the contact details and bank details). Ogury cannot be held responsible for any unauthorized access to the Publisher’s account, or for any modification, deletion or impairment affecting all or part of the information the Publisher will give Ogury in the context of using the Publisher’s access account. Breach of this clause by Publisher shall be deemed to be a material breach of this agreement.
10.1. To the fullest extent permitted by law, neither Ogury nor the Publisher, except as expressly set forth in this agreement makes any warranties, express or implied, with respect to the subject matter of this agreement and each party expressly disclaims the implied warranties of merchantability, noninfringement, fitness for a particular purpose. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Ogury SDK, Service and Platform are provided “as is” and without warranties of any kind.

Ogury reserves that right at all times, at its discretion, and without notice, to remove or refuse to distribute any item pertaining to the Ogury SDK, Service or Platform. Ogury does not warrant the results of the use of the Ogury SDK, Service or Platform. Publisher acknowledges that Ogury may modify or suspend the Ogury SDK, Service or Platform at any time in its sole discretion and without notice.
10.2.
