If you do not click “I accept,” you will not have access to, nor be able to download, the SDK.
Manage reserves the right to modify these Terms of Service at any time by posting a notice on www.manage.com (the “Site”), or by sending you a notice via email. Your viewing of the Site or using all or any part of the Services constitutes your assent to such modifications. You shall be responsible for reviewing and becoming familiar with any such modifications. Such modifications are effective immediately upon first posting or notification on the Site.
To register for the Services, you must complete the registration process on the Site. In consideration for the use of the Services and the Site, you agree to: (a) provide true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Service’s registration form (such information being the “Registration Data”), and (b) maintain and promptly update the Registration Data to keep it true, accurate, current, and complete. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, or Manage has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current, or incomplete, Manage has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Services (or any portion thereof). At registration, you will be required to provide Manage with a username and password. You understand that you are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and that you shall be solely and fully responsible for all activities that occur under your username and password.

You agree to immediately notify Manage of any unauthorized uses of your password or username or any other breach of security. If a password is lost or stolen it is your responsibility to change the password, and immediately notify Manage, so that your account remains both secure and functional. Additionally, you agree that if you provide false information to obtain access to the Manage site that you are not legally entitled to claim, Manage will be entitled to collect liquidated damages of $1,000 per violation or actual damages incurred by Manage from you, whichever is greater. You understand and agree that the Services may include certain communications from Manage, such as service announcements, administrative messages, and any other Manage notices and that these communications are considered part of Manage membership and (except as prohibited by applicable law) you will not be able to opt out of receiving them.
Manage Publisher is a publisher software platform that allows publishers to sell advertising space (“Inventory”) to advertisers (“Advertisers”). In order to use Manage Publisher, you must integrate the Manage Publisher software development kit (the “SDK”) subject to the End User License Agreement (“SDK EULA”) into your application(s). The Manage Publisher SDK, the Manage Publisher Advertiser optimization engine, and the Manage Publisher Data Management Platform (the “DMP”) are defined collectively herein as the “Services.” Once you are registered on the Site and Manage has approved your application, Manage will pay you a percentage of the Net Revenue (as defined below) that Manage receives from the sale of your Inventory to Advertisers (your “Payment”). Net revenue is defined as the money actually collected by Manage from Advertisers in connection with demand ads served on your Inventory less any applicable fees, fraud, charge backs, refunds, uncollected amounts and other reasonable deductions (“Net Revenue”). Payments to you shall solely be based on Manage’s good-faith measurements and will be final. Manage provides Payments to you on a weekly basis subject to certain minimum thresholds (the “Thresholds”). You are responsible for providing and maintaining accurate contact and payment information associated with your account. Any unpaid Payments below the Thresholds will rollover and accrue to the next pay period. Manage may change its policy on fees and Payments at any time, and changes to such policies may be made by posting a notice on the Site, or by sending you a notice via email. You shall be solely responsible for the payment of all applicable taxes associated with the Payments to you (except for taxes assessed on Manage’s net income). You shall indemnify Manage for all costs, losses, liabilities and penalties arising from failure to do so.

Upon termination of these Terms of Service, Manage will attempt to pay you any undisputed and unpaid Payments within 60 days of termination. However, if Manage is unable to remit Payment to you due to circumstances beyond Manage’s control , such as your failure to maintain accurate contact or payment information, you acknowledge and agree that such Payments will not be made to you. Except for such undisputed and unpaid Payments, upon termination of these Terms of Service neither party shall owe the other party any services, property, or value of any kind.
