Payments and Taxes
All payments made in connection with the use of the HBMP are made depending on the type of Account chosen by the Publisher.
If the Publisher registers a “Free” Account, Collected Revenue will be paid to such Publisher by Adtelligent on a NET60 basis (within sixty (60) days after the end of each calendar month). All the bids suggested by the Adtelligent Marketplace are made in NET price so the Adtelligent fees are already included in it.
The Publisher using a “Free” Account can receive payments via PayPal or via wire transfer. The Publisher must promptly notify the Company of the mode of payment according to the Payments Settings located on the HBMP. The Company is not responsible for any service interruptions within PayPal or wire transfer service when paying the Collected Revenue to the Publishers. When the Company makes the payment using a wire transfer or PayPal, the processing and posting of funds to your account may take a few days.
According to these HB TOS the Publisher within the “Free” Account should add in his Ads.txt file all of the vendors listed under the “Marketplace” section of the HBMP. Adtelligent shall not pay the Collected Revenue to the Publisher if its Ads.txt file was not set up or upgraded according to the requirements hereof. If the Publisher fails to update the information on the Ads.txt file in a timely manner (within two (2) weeks after the corresponding update), the Company has the right to suspend the access of the Publisher’s buyers to Bids.
If the Publisher registers a “Paid” Account, it agrees to pay fees 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 to be concluded by the Publisher in addition to these HB TOS.
All payments between the Company and the Publisher with a “Paid” Account are made via wire transfer according to the bank details of the Publisher provided by the latter in the Platform Provider Agreement. The Publisher is responsible for keeping updated all information provided for payment purposes (such as contact information, payment amounts, credit card numbers and expiry dates, and wire information, if applicable).
All 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/).
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.
Publisher agrees to hold the Company liable for payments solely to the extent proceeds have cleared from demand partners to the Company for Ads placed in accordance herewith. For sums not cleared to the Company, Publisher agrees not to hold the Company liable. Publisher understands that the Company, as an agent, has no obligations relating to such payments, either joint or several. The Company agrees to make every reasonable effort to collect and clear payment from its demand partners on a timely basis. Publisher agrees that the Company may prolong the clearance period to collect payment from the demand partner up to 180 (one hundred eighty) days after the end of the month, for which the payment should be conducted.
It should be noted that the Company makes all and any 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. Once you file your W-9 form or W-8BEN form, the system will activate your eligibility to withdraw earnings. If the required form is not loaded by the Publisher in accordance with these HB TOS or the information provided by the Publisher is incorrect the Company should not make any payments to such Publisher.
The Form W-8BEN is a form used to confirm you’re not a U.S. taxpayer and that Adtelligent is not required to withhold taxes from your earnings. The Form W-9 is a form used to confirm you are a U.S. taxpayer.
You are responsible for all duties, tariffs, and taxes related to your use of the HB Services, except for taxes on income paid or payable by the Company. You may charge, and we will pay the appropriate national, state, or local taxes or value-added taxes that you are legally obligated to charge (“Taxes”), provided that such Taxes are stated separately in the original invoice that you provide us and this invoice meets the requirements for a valid tax invoice. We can provide you with a certificate of exemption from the relevant taxes or equivalent information that is acceptable to the relevant tax authority, in which case you will not charge and/or levy the taxes covered by such a certificate. The Company may deduct (withhold) any Taxes that we may legally withhold from any amounts payable to you under these HB TOS, and such payment to you as reduced by such deductions or withholdings will constitute full payment to you of amounts payable hereunder. You agree to provide the Company with any forms, documents or certifications as may be required to satisfy any information reporting or withholding tax obligations with respect to any payments made under these HB TOS. Each party to these HB TOS will be responsible, as required under applicable Laws, for identifying and paying all Taxes and other governmental fees and charges (penalties, interest, and other additions thereto), imposed on that party in connection with the transactions and payments made hereunder.
