(“Seller”) through Lands of America, Land and Farm, LandWatch or any other similar Land.com Network brands owned or managed by Seller, in the United States, on behalf of Customer, including banner ads and listings of Customer’s properties that are displayed by Seller and/or Sellers’ partners. “Agreement” means the Subscription Form, these Internet Advertising Terms and Conditions, the Terms of Use, any addenda and any exhibits attached hereto between Seller and Customer. “Content” means all content and materials provided or made accessible by Customer to Seller, including print magazine advertisements, websites (accessed either at the direction of the relevant property owner or, if this Agreement is entered into by a broker or other agent of the Customer, at the direction of such broker or agent), links, banner ads, videos, data, text, branding, photos and images. “Laws” means all federal, state and local laws, rules, and regulations, including all fair housing laws, the Federal Do-Not Call rules, and the Federal CAN-SPAM rules. “Materials” means all content, materials and services that may be provided or made accessible by Seller to Customer, including websites, videos, maps, custom property descriptions, software, technology, tools, and other intellectual property, registered or not. “Listing Plan” means the base listing Product necessary to initiate and maintain services under the Agreement, as selected and indicated on the Subscription Form. “Product(s)” means the services selected by Customer as set forth in the attached Subscription Form and as otherwise identified in any additional addenda subject to this Agreement, as such services may be updated and improved from time-to-time. “Sites” means the website located at www.landsofamerica.com, www.landandfarm.com, www.landwatch.com, www.land.com and/or any other website (and any natural evolution thereof) owned by Seller or its partners relating to the purchase and sale of land, and any mobile, private labeled, co-branded or other versions of the site, and any other websites (regardless of URL), applications, or services owned or operated by or on behalf of Seller. “User Data” means any personally identifiable information and financial information related to a user (including first name, last name, address, phone number, email address, social security number, and financial information) that is received by Customer through its use of a Product.

2. Fees

(a) Seller’s performance under this Agreement may be conditioned upon credit approval of Customer. Customer authorizes Seller to obtain a credit report to determine creditworthiness. Unless payment is made by credit card or ACH, Customer agrees to pay all fees specified in the Subscription Form (the “Fees”) within 30 days of date of invoice, all of which shall be priced by Seller and paid by Customer in U.S. dollars. If payment is made by credit card or ACH, Customer expressly authorizes Seller to automatically charge the applicable charge or debit the applicable account on a monthly basis during the term of this Agreement (unless otherwise agreed by the parties) and agrees that any fee increase made in accordance with this Section 2 may also be charged/debited in the same manner, and Customer shall be responsible for any third party fees. All payments received after the due date will incur a late payment charge from such due date until paid at a rate equal to the lesser of 1.5% per month or the maximum rate permitted under applicable law. Customer agrees to pay all of Seller’s costs, including attorneys’ fees, court costs or other costs, incurred in collecting overdue amounts. The Fees do not include sales, use, excise or any other taxes or fees now or hereafter imposed by any governmental authority with respect to the Advertisement. (b) In addition to anything set forth herein, (i) at the start of each Renewal Term (as defined below), the Fees shall increase by a percentage equal to the percentage increase in the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) for the previous twelve months (or in the case the contract length is other than 12 months, for the previous contract length term), and (ii) Seller may, with advance notice to Customer by email or through the Product’s on-line account management interface, at any time during a Renewal Term (as defined below) increase the Fees or charge other fees for any portion of the Product or service provided by Seller; provided, however, that if Customer does not agree to the increase or charge implemented solely under this Section 2(b)(ii), then Customer may give written notice of termination within thirty (30) days of Seller’s notice. In the event Customer gives such written notice of termination, Customer shall continue to pay the then-current Fees until the last day of the then-current term of the Listing Plan (In the event Customer terminates a LandWatch Product in accordance with the preceding sentence, Customer shall continue to pay the Fees in place before the proposed increase or charge until the last day of the calendar month in which Customer’s notice of termination is delivered, and the Agreement shall terminate with respect to such LandWatch Product on such date.)

3. Term and Termination

The term for each Product shall begin on the date of signature by Seller, shall continue through the date the Product is uploaded and available for viewing on the Site and shall continue for the initial term specified on the Subscription Form (the “Initial Term”). The term of the Agreement shall continue for successive periods equal to the Initial Term (each such successive period being a “Renewal Term”) commencing on the last day of the Initial Term or the Renewal Term, unless at least (i) 30 days prior to the last day of the Initial Term or Renewal Term either party has provided the other written notice of an intent not to renew, in the event Customer’s then-current Initial Term or Renewal Term is less than 180 days, or (ii) 60 days prior to the last day of the Initial Term or the Renewal Term, either party has provided the other written notice of an intent not to renew in the event Customer’s then-current Initial Term or Renewal Term is 180 days or greater. In the event the Listing Plan is terminated for any reason (including in accordance with Section 2(b)), all remaining Products under this Agreement and any other agreement between Seller and Customer (except for the Land Insight Product) shall concurrently terminate and all Fees due for all Products under all such agreements shall immediately become due and payable, unless otherwise agreed to by the parties in advance in writing. (With respect to the LandWatch Product, where a Listing Plan is not required, the preceding sentence shall not apply.) Customer acknowledges that it is responsible for payment of the Fees for the entire Initial Term and any Renewal Term unless the Agreement is cancelled in accordance with the notice provisions of this Section. Seller reserves the right, in its reasonable discretion, to reject, suspend or discontinue any Advertisements or any portion of the service provided hereunder at any time. Seller reserves the right to refuse to provide Advertisements to anyone for competitive and/or other business reasons including non-payment, and Customer agrees to pay for all Advertisements. If Customer cancels any Product prior to the end of the Initial Term or any Renewal Term, then Customer shall pay a cancellation fee equal to the number of unpaid months remaining in the Initial Term or Renewal Term, multiplied by the monthly Fee for such Product. Either party may immediately terminate this Agreement in the event the other party commits a material breach of this Agreement and such breach is not cured by the breaching party within 30 days of its receipt of notice of such breach from the non-breaching party. To be effective, terminations under this Section must be emailed to support@landwatch.com with respect to the LandWatch Product and support@landsofamerica.com for all other Products. Seller and Customer may agree to revoke any termination, in which case, this Agreement will remain in effect.

4. Content

Customer grants Seller a perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, transferable, worldwide license to access, edit, store, enhance, modify, adapt, translate, copy, reproduce, distribute, transmit, broadcast, publish, perform and display on any of its Sites or otherwise publicly, prepare derivative works of, and otherwise use Content, and to sublicense such rights through multiple tiers. Seller may use Content and any data aggregated with and/or derived from the Content for any purpose. Seller reserves the right to modify the Sites and Products, and to remove or reject any Content or portion thereof from use on the Sites or Products, in its sole discretion without notice. Customer acknowledges and agrees that it is responsible for uploading Content to the Sites and that Customer shall pay the Fees regardless of the amount of Content uploaded. Customer understands and acknowledges that it is responsible for obtaining all permissions necessary to allow any Content it submits to Seller to be used in accordance with this Agreement.

5. Materials, Products and User Data.

Customer acknowledges that Seller and its licensors have and shall retain exclusive ownership of all proprietary rights to all Materials. Customer may use the Materials solely as provided by Seller and as necessary for Customer to use the Products for their intended purpose in accordance with this Agreement. During the Initial Term and any Renewal Term, Customer may display solely within its own marketing collateral or on its own website the permitted Material listed on www.landsofamerica.com/terms/advertising, or other Materials approved by Seller in advance in writing by Seller (the “Permitted Material”). Customer shall not be entitled to use any Permitted Materials that are not actively marketed or advertised using a paid Seller product or service and Customer must delete or remove any Permitted Material used in Customer’s marketing materials or website once the subject property ceases to be advertised in connection with any Product. Customer shall not use or permit the use of the Products in any unauthorized manner. The Sites, Materials and Products will remain the sole and exclusive property of Seller and its licensors. Customer agrees to protect User Data in accordance with the Law and use User Data solely to fulfill user requests and to provide customer service to the user.

10. General

Customer shall not assign all or any part of this Agreement without Seller’s prior written consent. The parties’ obligations hereunder are binding on their successors, legal representatives and assigns. Customer consents and agrees that Seller may send to Customer and its employees communications, including, but not limited to, email communications about new features or products, advertising content, product feedback and other marketing content, which the email recipient may unsubscribe at any time.

If any provision of this Agreement shall be held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, that provision shall be eliminated and the remaining provisions shall remain in full force and effect. Except for payment obligations, neither party shall be liable to the other party for failure to perform by reason of a force majeure event or any other cause beyond such party’s reasonable control.
