5. Account types and Payments
All payments made in connection with the use of the HBMP are made depending on the type of the Account chosen by the Publisher. There are two types of the HBMP users and two payment methods:
If the Publisher selects a “Free” Account, all payments will be made on Net 60 basis. In accordance with this system, sixty (60) days after the end of each calendar month, Adtelligent pays the Publisher his Collected Revenue. All the bids suggested by Adtelligent Marketplace are made in NET price so the fees are already included in it.
It should be noted that the Company makes payments to the Publisher only if this Publisher has uploaded the relevant document to the system (the Form W-8BEN or the Form W-9) and has provided correct information about these payments on the HBMP. The Form W-8BEN is a form used to confirm you’re not the U.S. taxpayer and that Adtelligent is not required to withhold taxes from your earnings. Once you file your Form W-8BEN, the system will activate your eligibility to withdraw earnings. The Form W-9 is a form used to confirm you are the U.S. taxpayers and in order Adtelligent send you payments, we need a filled out W-9 tax form. Once you file your W-9 Form, the system will activate your eligibility to withdraw earnings. If the required form is not loaded by the Publisher in accordance with these Terms or the information provided by the Publisher is incorrect the Company is not responsible for these Publisher actions and therefore does not make payments.
The Publisher using a “Free” Account has only two ways to get payments from the Company:
- Through the PayPal Service;
- Through the Wire Transfer Service.
The Publisher must promptly notify the Company which payment system he uses according to the terms of the Payments Settings located on the HBMP. If the Publisher got some problems with the PayPal Service or Wire Transfer Service, the Company does not responsible for service issues regarding payments. It should be noted that if the Company sends the payment using Wire Transfer Service or PayPal Service, the processing and posting of funds to your account may take a few days.
The Company assumes no obligation or responsibility for any relationship (financial or other) between you and your demand partners (if you are cooperating directly) or any other third parties related to your use of the HBMP.
By using the HBMP and creating “Free” Account the Publisher agrees to set up Ads.txt file and update it timely. According to our Terms the Publisher should add in his Ads.txt file all of the vendors listed under “Marketplace” section of the Platform. Adtelligent is liable not to pay the Publisher if Ads.txt file was not implemented or upgraded according to the Company’s instructions. This is explained by the vital functionality for the proper operation of HBMP. If the Publisher fails to update the information on the Ads.txt file in a timely manner (within 2 weeks after the corresponding update), the Company has the right to suspend the access of Publisher’s buyers to take part in the auction.
If the Publisher selects a “Paid” Account, he agrees to pay Adtelligent the Services fees as a payment for the Services the Company provides. This payment is made each calendar month, in the amount as counted by Adtelligent using a methodology that is substantially similar to industry standards. The list of Adtelligent Services and their respective prices will depend on the scope of Services you select and will be indicated in the separate Platform Provider Agreement.
All payments between the Company and the Publisher are made by transferring the payments on the bank details, which the Publisher and the Company indicate in the Platform Provider Agreement concluded between them. You are responsible for confirming the accuracy of all information that you provide for each payment (such as contact information, payment amounts, credit card numbers and expiry dates, and wire information, if applicable).
All such payments are made in U.S. dollars. When the Publisher uses a currency other than U.S. dollar for each payment period, the Company updates the exchange rate statistics on the payment day. For currency conversion operations, Adtelligent uses Open Exchange Rates (https://openexchangerates.org/).
