Introduction. This agreement ("Agreement") between You and American Digital Networks, L.L.C.. ("A.D.N.") consists of these American Digital Network's Online Program (the "Program") Standard Terms and Conditions ("Terms and Conditions"). A description of the Program, as generally offered by American Digital Networks, L.L.S., is available by sending your request to info@adn1.com or such URL as A.D.N. may provide from time to time. "You" or "Publisher" means any entity identified in an enrollment or insertion form submitted by the same or affiliated persons, and/or any agency or network acting on its (or their) behalf, which shall also be bound by the terms of this Agreement.

  1. Program Participation. Participation in the Program is subject to American Digital Network's prior approval and Your continued compliance with the Program Policies ("Program Policies"). A.D.N. reserves the right to refuse participation to any applicant or participant at any time in its sole discretion. Any enrollment in the A.D.N. EasyAds program but be by members companies of the American Digital Network. Any advertising application submitted by a non-member company will be denied. By enrolling in the Program, You represent that You are at least 18 years of age and agree that American Digital Networks may serve third party and/or A.D.N. provided advertisements (such A.D.N.-served advertisements, collectively, "Ads"), related A.D.N. queries and/or Ad search box (collectively, "Links"), and American Digital Network's Web and/or Affiliate Profile search results (collectively, "Search Results") in connection with the Profile Information or Web Profile(s) that You designate (each a "Profile") using American Digital Network's advertising serving, affiliate advertising serving and search technology. Multiple accounts held by the same individual or entity are subject to immediate termination unless expressly authorized in writing by American Digital Networks, L.L.C. (including by electronic mail).
  2. Implementation and Operation of Ads and Search Results. You agree to comply with the specifications provided by American Digital Networks, L.L.C. from time to time to enable proper delivery, display, tracking, and reporting of Profiles, Ads, Links, Search Results, and A.D.N.Brand Features (as defined in Section 12 below) in connection with Your Profile(s), including without limitation by not modifying the JavaScript or other programming provided to You by A.D.N. in any way, unless expressly authorized in writing by A.D.N. (including by electronic mail). If You have elected to receive Search Results, You will display on Your Profile(s) an A.D.N. search box (a "Search Box") in accordance with the specifications provided by A.D.N.. Each Web page(s) that contains a Search Box must also contain other content related to Your Company or Profile. Except for related A.D.N. queries, all search queries (including queries entered into an Ad search box) must originate from individual human end users inputting data directly into a Search Box (or Ad search box, as applicable) on Your Profile(s). You will send any and all queries (without editing, modifying, or filtering such queries individually or in the aggregate) to A.D.N. and A.D.N. will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide You with corresponding Search Results and/or Ads, as applicable and as available. Search Results and any accompanying Ads will be displayed on Web pages hosted by A.D.N., the format, look and feel of which may be modified by A.D.N. from time to time. All content-based Ads (and Ads served in response to end user clicks on and queries entered into Links, if any) shall be grouped by A.D.N. and displayed with Links (where applicable) to end users of the Profile(s) as ad units (such groups of Ads and/or Links collectively referred to as "Ad Units") in standard formats as offered generally by A.D.N. from time to time, as may be described in the FAQ. You may select a format approved by A.D.N. for the display of Ad Units in connection with the Profile(s), but You acknowledge and agree that Ads and/or Links: (a) shall only be displayed in connection with the Profile(s), each of which is subject to review and approval by A.D.N. in its discretion at any time; and (b) shall be subject to the placement guidelines set forth herein. In addition, You agree that while You may display more than one (1) Ad Unit on each Profile or Web Page, You shall not display any Ad Unit on a page that contains Ads associated with another A.D.N. EasyAds customer (e.g., Your Web hosting company), unless authorized to do so by A.D.N. or such other EasyAds customer, if authorized. You agree not to display on the same Web page in connection with which any Ad Unit, Ad, Link, or Search Box is displayed (a "Serviced Page") any advertisement(s) that an end user of Your Profile(s) would reasonably confuse with a A.D.N. advertisement or otherwise associate with A.D.N.. If You have elected to receive content-based Ads, You further agree not to display on any Serviced Page any non-A.D.N. content-targeted advertisement(s). If You have elected to receive Search Results on any Site(s), You agree that A.D.N. will be the exclusive provider of Internet search services on such Site(s). Certain A.D.N. services available as part of the Program may contain filtering capability, such as SafeSearch or AdSafe, that You may access through Your account. However, if You elect to enable any such filters, You acknowledge and agree that: (i) it is Your responsibility to enable such features in accordance with the specifications provided by A.D.N., and (ii) A.D.N. does not and cannot commit that all results (including Ads, Links and Search Results) will be limited to results elected by enabling such filter(s).

A.D.N. is not responsible for anything related to Your Profile(s), including without limitation the receipt of queries from end users of Your Profile(s) or the transmission of data between Your Site(s) and A.D.N..
