Our Website Does Not Play Well With Ad Blockers

    (f) You have full power and authority to enter into this Agreement and to perform your obligations hereunder.

    Without limiting its other remedies, AdButler may refuse or cancel your account or Services at any time for any violation of the foregoing promises.

  4. Payment

    You agree to pay AdButler any set-up fees and recurring subscription fees listed on AdButler's website for the Service Plans you select. Completion and submission of any Service activation form authorizes AdButler to charge the credit card specified in your registration for all such fees and any related taxes corresponding to the selected Service. Such charges will be made on a periodic basis, coinciding with the subscription period for the selected Service (for example, monthly or annually). In order to avoid the full fee for any new subscription period, you must cancel the Service BEFORE the new period begins. Any failure to pay the amounts due under this Agreement will be a material breach of your obligations under this Agreement. Without limiting any other remedies available to AdButler, YOU AGREE TO FULLY REIMBURSE ADBUTLER FOR ANY COSTS AND EXPENSES THAT ADBUTLER MAY INCUR IN CONNECTION WITH COLLECTING OR ATTEMPTING TO COLLECT ANY SUCH UNPAID AMOUNTS.

    Section 4.1 Price and Payment.
    Customer shall pay AdButler monthly recurring fees, in U.S. Dollars, as indicated for the selected Service Plan(s) or, if an AdButler Written Agreement accompanies this document, as indicated by those terms. In addition to any recurring fees, Customer may be charged non-recurring fees as indicated at this same Web site, or as an AdButler Written Agreement specifies.

    AdButler reserves the right to increase prices upon the expiration of the Customer's contracted term. Price increases shall be posted on AdButler's web site 30 days prior to taking effect. AdButler agrees to submit written notice to the primary email on record for the Customer at least 30 days prior to taking effect. This Agreement will automatically renew on a month-to-month basis at the month-to-month rate in effect at the time of the renewal unless cancelled in writing or modified in writing by the Customer prior to the renewal date. Customer will receive an invoice for charges and payment is due upon receipt, unless otherwise stated. It is our policy to bill our clients on a monthly basis, and in the absence of any agreement or arrangement to the contrary, we expect to be paid no later than the due date stated on the invoice. Our monthly statements will be itemized as to each general activity.

    ection 4.2. Method of Payment.
    AdButler accepts payment by Credit Card (Visa, MasterCard, Amex), Check and Postal Money Order. All funds shall be in U.S. Dollars. Customers submitting payment in foreign currencies will incur a $5.00 (U.S. Dollar) conversion fee. AdButler charges $20.00 for each check returned (rejected) by the bank.

    Section 4.3. Late Payment.
    Customer Balances are due no later than 3:00 PM Pacific Time, on the 20th day after the initial bill date for service stated on the invoice. If a Balance is due 31 days after the initial bill date for service, an interest charge of %2 (two percent) per month will begin to accrue from the initial bill date. If a Balance is due 57 days after the initial bill date for service, Customer's Account may be suspended for service. If a balance remains due 70 days past the initial bill date for service, Customer's Account may be submitted to AdButler's Collection Agency for processing, as described in Section 3.4. AdButler will make reasonable efforts to notify Customer, in advance, of pending late fees, account suspension and account submission to Collection Agency, but AdButler's failure to provide notice will not prevent AdButler from exercising any of its rights regarding past due amounts. AdButler will make reasonable efforts to preserve Customer's content off-line, for up to 70 days past the initial bill date for service. If Account Balance is not settled, AdButler reserves the right to destroy the content on AdButler's service to make space for new Customers.

    Section 4.4. Collection Agency.
    Customer Balances (Amounts) past due by 70 days are subject to submission to AdButler's Collection Agency. Customer Accounts will incur a Collections Service Fee of $20.00 (Twenty U.S. Dollars), which is in addition to the Late Payment Fee described in Section 3.3. Customer will also be liable for additional further collection costs.

    Section 4.5. Credit Card Chargebacks.
    Anytime a Chargeback Request is received from our Merchant bank, AdButler reserves the right to immediately suspend Customer's Account until the Chargeback Request has been formally resolved between AdButler and the Merchant Service Authority. This process may take up to, and possibly more than, a week. If you are disputing a billing error, AdButler encourages Customer to first contact AdButler's Customer Service to resolve any discrepancies to avoid having Customer's Account suspended upon notification of a Chargeback. AdButler reserves the right to refuse any additional service to Customer while a Chargeback Notice is pending investigation by the Merchant Service Authority.

  5. Pricing Changes And Other Modifications

    AdButler may change its Service fees, or any other terms of this Agreement, at any time by updating the applicable pricing information or other terms posted on AdButler's website. New pricing terms will become effective beginning with the first full billing cycle after AdButler posts such changes to its website. Changes to terms not related to pricing will become effective fifteen (15) days after such notification. If you do not agree to any changes posted by AdButler in accordance with this Section, you must cancel your account or the affected Service as provided herein before the given changes become effective; otherwise you will be deemed to have accepted and agreed to the changes.

    Additional modifications to these terms and conditions may be made in special circumstances, but only if approved in advance in a signed writing on AdButler's letterhead by an executive vice president or higher-level officer of SparkLIT. Product sales and support representatives are not authorized to waive or modify any provisions of this Membership Agreement. No failure by AdButler to enforce any term of this Agreement shall be construed as a waiver thereof, nor shall it affect your obligations or AdButler's rights and remedies hereunder.

  6. Duration And Cancellation Of Services

    Unless stated otherwise on AdButler's web pages applicable to a given Service, each Service will be provided and billed on a month-to-month or year-to-year subscription basis, measured from the beginning of the calendar month immediately following activation of the given Service. Subscriptions will automatically renew with each monthly or annual period, as applicable, until cancelled in accordance with this section. At any time after activation of a Service, you may cancel that Service either by providing written notice to AdButler, or by using AdButler's online cancellation system, in which case the Service will terminate on the date specified in the cancellation notice. If no date is specified, the Service will terminate at the end of the then-current billing period (for paid Services) or calendar month (for free Services). At the end of the then-current billing period, paid services will revert to the free service level if one is available. Upon successful cancellation a cancellation confirmation number will be provided which can be used as confirmation of cancellation in the future. AdButler reserves the right to cancel your service for any or no reason upon providing written notice of the cancellation. AdButler also reserves the right to cancel any individual Service immediately and without notice in the event that you breach any provision of this Agreement or any other terms that apply to that Service. NO REFUNDS WILL BE AVAILABLE ON ACCOUNT OF ANY SERVICE CANCELLATION BY EITHER PARTY, EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED IN THE SECTION ENTITLED "REFUNDS" BELOW.
    NOTE: As email is inherently unreliable, AdButler does not accept cancellations via email for the benefit of all parties.

  7. Duration And Cancellation Of Services

    The term of this Agreement will begin on the date that AdButler accepts your initial registration and will continue in force until terminated according to this section. Upon cancellation of all active Services, or any time thereafter, either party may terminate your account and this Agreement by written notice to the other party. AdButler also reserves the right to terminate your account and this Agreement immediately and without notice in the event that you breach any provision of this Agreement. No refunds will be available on account of any termination of this Agreement, except as expressly provided in the Section entitled "Refunds" below. Sections 10 through 15 of this Agreement shall survive and remain in effect notwithstanding any termination of this Agreement.

  8. Refunds

    If AdButler terminates this Agreement, your account, or any Service prior to the end of any active subscription period, and if you have not breached any provision of this Agreement, then you may request a partial refund of the fees that you have paid for that subscription period, based on the number of days remaining in the subscription period at the time of such termination. If your request is validly submitted in writing within thirty (30) days after such termination, then AdButler will issue the appropriate credit to your credit card or another reasonable method at AdButler's discretion.

    Prepayments are non-refundable. You must request cancellation prior to your next billing cycle beginning to prevent charges from being assessed.

    Exceptions may be made, in the favour of the customer, on a case-by-case basis

    Without limiting any of the restrictions above, you acknowledge and agree that NO REFUNDS OR PARTIAL REFUNDS WILL BE ISSUED: (a) FOR ANY SERVICE THAT YOU CANCEL LATER THAN THIRTY (30) DAYS AFTER ACTIVATION; OR (b) IF YOU HAVE BREACHED ANY PROVISION OF THIS AGREEMENT.

Terms of Service Violations & Legal Issues

This document contains instructions for reporting a violation of AdButler's terms of service, or a legal issue that requires attention.

Users of the AdButler site agree to abide by our General Terms of Service and Membership Agreement.

AdButler services are used for communication, self-expression and freedom of speech. We believe our services promote these values.

All complaints and requests for action must be submitted via mail or fax; we cannot respond to email or telephone complaints. Our technical support staff will not be able to assist you with legal matters.

We respect our users' ownership of and responsibility for the content they choose to share. We believe that censoring this content is contrary to our goals as a service.

However, there are some boundaries as to the type of content that may be hosted, linked, or in any way connected with AdButler. The boundaries are those which allow us to comply with legal requirements and that serve to enhance the service for everyone.

  • Personal Abuse

  • Subpoena/Court Order

  • Illegal Pornographic Material

  • Copyright Infringement

  • Private and Confidential Information

  • Unlawful Use Of Services

  • Hateful Content

  • Spam, Malicious Codes and Viruses

  1. Personal Abuse

    Definition
    Linking, referring to, uploading, posting, emailing or otherwise transmitting any Content that is threatening, abusive, tortious, defamatory, or libelous.

    AdButler is one of the world's largest online services, and it should come as no surprise that users occasionally link, or otherwise refer to materials that someone may find objectionable. Unfortunately, AdButler cannot evaluate the propriety of the hundreds of thousands of new advertisements, links, or referrals made on its service each day. For example, we are simply not in any position to evaluate an allegation that a particular post is defamatory.

    It is for this reason that under United States federal law (47 U.S.C.), service providers like AdButler are not liable for content posted to their services by third parties. Accordingly, AdButler will not, as a matter of practice, remove links or referrals based on allegations of abuse without legal process that AdButler reasonably believes compels a response. By contrast, where a party presents a court order establishing that particular content is abusive and should be removed, AdButler will respond as it believes appropriate. We will also respond appropriately to intellectual property claims, and may remove any post as we see fit, in accordance with our Terms of Service.

    Procedure

AdButler GDPR Cookie Policy

AdButler has always embraced “Privacy by Design”, and because of this, we have a very small footprint on your users’ browsers. AdButler only has a small number of features that involve cookies to carry out their respective functionalities. These cookies do not store any personal data (including personal IDs) which means that you do not need to collect explicit consent from your users before using these AdButler features.

AdButler has always embraced “Privacy by Design”, and because of this, we have a very small footprint on your users’ browsers. AdButler only has a small number of features that involve cookies to carry out their respective functionalities. Both of these cookies do not store any personal data (including personal IDs) which means that you do not need to collect explicit consent from your users before using these AdButler features.

Although the GDPR was not meant to address non-personal data, there was a misalignment on the implementation of two new regulations: GDPR and ePrivacy Regulation. ePrivacy regulation was intended to replace the Data Protection Directive, which was repealed on May 25, 2018, but the ePrivacy Regulation has been delayed. In order to address the impending relatory gap that handles cookie privacy, a provision was added to the GDPR that says that references to the Data Protection Directive “shall be construed as references to this Regulation [the GDPR]”.

Because of this provision, and the fact that the Data Protection Directive addresses consent for cookies in general (not specifically those with personal data or IDs), there will be a period of time where GDPR transparency is required for cookies containing non-personal data.

Accordingly, you will need to disclose the following information to your EU users regarding these two cookies.

Purpose of Cookie

Why?
