Effective Date: May 21, 2015
By signing up for our Services through this Site, you permit Adcoin to serve, as applicable: (i) advertisements and other content (“Ads”); (ii) search results, statistics, and other information by automated means or otherwise; (iii) related search queries and other links to your websites, mobile applications, media players, mobile content, and/or other properties approved by Adcoin (each individually a “Property” and together “Properties”). In addition, you grant Adcoin the right to access, index, and cache the Properties, or any portion thereof, including by automated means. Adcoin may, in its sole discretion, refuse to provide the Services in association with any Property.
Your Access to the Site
If you choose, or are provided with, a user name, password or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat such information as confidential, and you must not disclose it to any other person or entity. You also acknowledge that your account is personal to you and agree not to provide any other person with access to this Site or portions of it using your user name, password or other security information. You agree to notify us immediately of any unauthorized access to or use of your user name or password or any other breach of security. You also agree to ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session. You should use particular caution when accessing your account from a public or shared computer so that others are not able to view or record your password or other personal information.
Display of Ads
You acknowledge that Adcoin’s Ads will be displayed on third party websites and that Adcoin has no control as to where and how often the Ads will be displayed, nor do we have control over the positioning of the Ads in relationship to any of your direct or indirect competitors. For clarification, Adcoin only maintains control over delivery of the Ads, not the placement of the Ad space. Adcoin retains the right to cease display of the Ads at any time and to make changes to the Services or Site. We will use our best efforts not to place your Ads on publisher’s websites that are of a pornographic, defamatory, obscene, or illegal nature and, upon your written notification of such displays, we will promptly remove the specified Ads.
Performance and Measurement of Ads
You may access and control your account and campaigns by logging into your Adcoin account with your designated login credentials. After logging in, you may set up your Ads, load multiple images for single Ads, adjust budgets, designate the start and end date of campaigns, and control other variables. Adcoin will charge your account based on the parameters you set and changes you make for your campaign or project. Adcoin measures the number of times Ads have been delivered and/or the number of engagements with Ads and/or other indicators necessary for calculating charges. You may access the statistics that we make available to you that are related to your account by logging into your account.

Payment of Fees
You agree to provide us with accurate and complete billing information as required for us to process the fee, including, for example, valid credit card information, your name, address, and telephone number, and to promptly provide us with any changes in such information. If, for any reason, your credit card company refuses to pay the amount billed for the Service, you agree that we may, at our sole option, suspend or terminate your access to the Service and require you to pay the overdue amount immediately by other means acceptable to us. You agree that, until your Ad campaign has ended or is terminated, you will continue to accrue charges for which you remain responsible, even if you do not use the service. In the event that legal action is necessary to collect on balances due, you agree to reimburse us for all expenses incurred to recover sums due, including attorney fees and other legal expenses. All payments to Adcoin shall be made in United States Dollars and are quoted exclusive of any value added tax, which shall be payable at the time and in the manner required by law. If you dispute any payments made or withheld relating to the Services, you must notify Adcoin in writing within 30 days of any such payment. If you do not, any claim relating to the disputed payment is waived. If an advertiser, whose Ads are displayed on any Property defaults on payment to Adcoin, we may withhold Adcoin’s outgoing payments or charge back to those accounts that have already been paid.
