5.1. Fees. Customer shall pay the fees set forth in the applicable Order Form. Innovid shall provide to Customer monthly invoices where monthly fees have been incurred for gross Impressions (provided that if Innovid has agreed to bill Customer for Integrated Vendor Services, Innovid may issue invoices for Integrated Vendor Services only after Innovid has received an applicable invoice from the applicable Integrated Vendor). All payment obligations are non-cancellable and all amounts paid are nonrefundable. At Customer’s request, Innovid shall provide copies of the monthly invoices to the advertising agency or payment processor with whom Customer works (collectively, “Payment Processor”), in which case Customer shall cause such Payment Processor to make all payments due to Innovid in accordance with the payment terms and rates contained in this Agreement (provided that the same shall not release Customer from its payment obligations in this Agreement). Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer shall remain liable for all payments hereunder. The gross Impressions counted by the ad server utilized by Innovid shall be used as the basis for calculating the amounts owed with respect all per-Impression fees. If there is a discrepancy exceeding ten percent (10%) between the number of gross Impressions counted by Customer or its third-party ad server, and the number of gross Impressions counted by Innovid or its third-party ad server, then upon Customer’s request, the parties will in good faith attempt to resolve such discrepancy by, among other things, exchanging any data or other information relevant to the disputed amounts of gross Impressions. In all cases, Innovid will not be responsible for any third-party or Customer errors in Impression counting where such errors result in underreported numbers. Innovid will collect full payment based on accurate gross Impressions counted after reconciling errors. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer shall pay any amounts that are not disputed in good faith in accordance with this Section 5. All amounts payable to Innovid under this Agreement will be made without the right of setoff or counterclaim, and without deduction or withholding. Innovid may increase rates no more than 7% at any time after the Initial Term upon at least thirty (30) days prior written notice to Customer. Integrated Vendors may increase prices for Integrated Vendor Services at any time, with or without notice (although Innovid will endeavor to provide Customer with notice thereof after Innovid has learned of the increase).
5.2. True-Up. With respect to each calendar year during the Term of this Agreement (pro-rated for the number of days in which this Agreement was in effect during such year), Customer will pay Innovid the greater of (i) the Minimum Annual Spend set forth in the applicable Order Form (or any fee increase made in accordance with Section 5.1); or (ii) the fees due by Customer calculated in accordance with the Rate Card set forth in the Order Form (or any fee increase made in accordance with Section 5.1) based on Customer’s actual usage of the Services in such calendar year. The amount due by Customer for the difference between the Minimum Annual Spend applicable to each calendar year during the Term and the total fees already paid by Customer for such year (the “True Up”) will be included in the last invoice of such calendar year.
5.3. Payment Timing. Customer shall pay the amounts due pursuant to Innovid’s invoices within thirty (30) days of Customer’s receipt of each such invoice. Any invoice-related dispute with respect to which Customer does not notify Innovid in writing within fourteen (14) days of Customer’s receipt of the applicable invoice shall be deemed waived.
5.4. Taxes; Payment Procedure. All amounts payable hereunder exclude all applicable sales, use and other taxes. Customer will be responsible for payment of all such taxes (other than taxes based on Innovid’s net income), and any related penalties and interest arising from the non-payment thereof. Amounts due under this Agreement and not paid by their due date shall incur interest of one and a half percent (1.5%) or the maximum allowed by law, whichever is less, and Customer shall be responsible for the reasonable collection costs (including without limitation attorneys’ fees and collection agency fees) incurred by Innovid in its efforts to collect such overdue amounts. Innovid shall be entitled, in its sole discretion, to withhold performance and discontinue provision of the Services until all amounts due are paid in full or to turn Customer over for collection to a third-party agency.
6. Term and Termination.
6.1. Term. Unless terminated earlier as permitted herein, the initial term of this Agreement shall be for a period commencing on the Initial Term Start Date set forth in the first Order Form executed by the parties and ending on the Initial Term End Date set forth in such Order Form (the “Initial Term”). Thereafter, this Agreement shall automatically renew for successive one-year periods (each a “Renewal Term” and together with the Initial Term, the “Term”) unless either party notifies the other in writing at least thirty (30) days prior to the end of any Initial Term or Renewal Term that it does not wish to renew this Agreement.

Impressions occurring post-termination as a result of failure to cease using the Code will be payable in accordance with the terms of this Agreement notwithstanding termination. Sections 1, 3, 4.1, 4.3, 5 (to the extent of outstanding payment obligations), 6.2, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 shall survive termination or expiration of this Agreement.
8. Indemnification.

Customer will defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Innovid, its directors, officers, Affiliates, employees and agents from and against any and all Claims arising out of or related to the Ads, the Content, the Media and the content contained in the foregoing. The foregoing indemnification obligations are conditioned on the Indemnified Party: (i) giving the Indemnifying Party notice of the relevant claim; (ii) reasonably cooperating with the Indemnifying Party at Indemnifying Party’s expense, in the defense of such claim; and (iii) giving the Indemnifying Party the right to control the defense and settlement of any such claim, except that the Indemnifying Party shall not enter into any settlement that affects the Indemnified Party’s rights or interest without the Indemnified Party’s prior written approval. The Indemnified Party shall have the right to participate in the defense at its expense. In the event that the Indemnifying Party fails to defend and/or indemnify the Indemnified Party, the Indemnified Party has the right to defend or settle any claim on its own behalf though counsel of its own choice and be fully reimbursed by the Indemnifying Party for all costs and expenses of such defense.

10.1. It shall adhere to all “Rules”, defined as all applicable laws, regulations and regulatory guidelines, as well as any applicable self-regulatory guidelines, including, without limitation, the Self-Regulatory Principles of the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”), the Codes of Conduct of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”), and the Self-Regulatory Principles of the European Digital Advertising Alliance (“EDAA”), as each may be amended from time to time.

11. Confidentiality. The parties acknowledge that, in the course of their dealings hereunder, each may receive (“Recipient”) or otherwise become familiar with information about the other (“Discloser”), including but without limitation information about Discloser’s technology, client order information, financial information, code, product roadmaps, business activities and operations, trade secrets, third-party business relationships, and all other information disclosed or made available by Discloser to Recipient that is marked “confidential” or “proprietary” or that should otherwise be reasonably understood to be confidential or proprietary (the “Confidential Information”). Customer hereby acknowledges and agrees that the fees and information regarding the operation of the Services constitute Confidential Information of Innovid and that Innovid may disclose Confidential Information of Customer to Innovid’s Affiliates, and to Integrated Vendor(s) selected by Customer as permitted above. Further, in the event that Customer makes use of an advertising agency to manage Customer advertising campaigns hereunder, Customer agrees that Innovid may disclose Customer’s Confidential Information to such advertising agency. Recipient hereby agrees to take reasonable measures to maintain the confidentiality and secrecy of the Confidential Information of Discloser and to avoid its disclosure. Recipient agrees to limit access to the Confidential Information to those of its authorized employees, advisors, subcontractors, vendors, agents and representatives (collectively, “Representatives”) who have a need to know solely in connection with Recipient’s performance or receipt of the Services contemplated by this Agreement or in connection with Recipient’s enforcement of its rights hereunder, provided that such Representatives are, by reason of written agreement or operation of law, bound by confidentiality restrictions consistent with those contained in this Section with respect to such information.

Customer agrees and acknowledges that: (a) Innovid may use and disclose information which it has collected or received in connection with the Services in a form that is not identifiable to Customer or end users in order to provide, enhance, market or improve the Services; and (b) in cases where Customer is not the owner and/or operator of the Media on which Ads are placed, and Innovid has a contractual relationship with the Publisher of such Media whereby Ads may be served on such Media, Innovid may disclose information regarding the performance of the Ads on such Media to that Publisher (including impressions, clicks, and other metrics broken out by date, time and advertiser) for reporting purposes. During the Term, the parties further agree to executing cross-marketing efforts and joint press releases, the content of which must be mutually agreed upon in advance.

Neither Customer nor Customer’s Affiliates, nor, to the best knowledge of Customer, any of Customer’s or Customer’s Affiliates’ respective Representatives, is aware of or has taken any action, directly or indirectly, that would result in a violation by any such person of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977, as amended, and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder (the “FCPA”), or any other applicable anti-bribery or anti-corruption rules or regulations (together with the FCPA, the “Anti-Corruption Rules”), including, without limitation, making use of the mails or any means or instrumentality of interstate commerce corruptly in furtherance of an offer, payment, promise to pay or authorization of the payment of any money, other property, gift, promise to give, or authorization of the giving of anything of value to any “foreign official” (as such term is defined in the FCPA) or any foreign political party or official thereof or any candidate for foreign political office, in each case, in contravention of the Anti-Corruption Rules.

This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the state of New York, without regard to its conflicts of laws principles. Any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement shall be commenced and litigated to conclusion only in the state or federal courts located in New York County, New York, and the parties irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of such courts over such action. The parties hereby expressly waive New York General Obligations Law Section 5-903 and therefore agree to the automatic renewal provisions provided herein. Innovid may engage third parties to furnish services in connection with the Services, provided that such third parties have executed appropriate confidentiality agreements with Innovid. Customer’s Affiliate(s) may elect to receive Services under this Agreement and in such case, such Affiliate shall be considered “Customer” under this Agreement with respect to its use or receipt of the Services as if such Affiliate had entered into a separate agreement with Innovid, and such Affiliate shall be responsible for its acts or omissions hereunder. Customer may not assign, delegate or otherwise transfer this Agreement, whether by operation of law or otherwise, without Innovid’s prior written consent. Any assignment in violation of the foregoing shall be void ab initio. Innovid may assign, delegate or otherwise transfer this Agreement, whether by operation of law or otherwise, to an Affiliate or in connection with a merger, reorganization, spin-off, consolidation, sale of a majority of its issued and outstanding voting securities, or sale of all or substantially all of its assets or otherwise. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement shall be binding on permitted successors and assigns. The waiver by either party of any breach or violation of any provision of this Agreement shall not operate or be construed as a waiver of any subsequent breach or violation hereof. The parties shall be deemed to be acting as independent contractors and shall not be deemed to be agents, representatives, joint venturers or partners. Neither party is authorized to bind the other to any obligation, affirmation or commitment with respect to any other person or entity. Any notices to be given hereunder may be effected either by personal delivery in writing or by registered or certified mail (postage prepaid with return receipt requested), overnight delivery service or facsimile (with a copy by registered or certified mail). The date upon which any such notice is received at the designated address shall be deemed to be the date of such notice. Neither party shall be liable to the other for any non-performance or delay in the performance of any of its obligations hereunder (excluding payment obligations) due to any cause beyond such party’s reasonable control or due to an act of god, act of civil or military authority, terrorist act, fire, labor disturbance, flood, pandemic or epidemic, governmental rule or regulation, war, riot, delay in transportation, shortage of raw materials, shortage of services, power outage, or hacker attack (each, a “Force Majeure Event”). This Agreement may be executed in counterparts which, when taken together, shall constitute one and the same instrument. This Agreement shall be construed as though both parties jointly drafted it. The captions in this Agreement are for convenience only and shall not affect its interpretation. In the event that any of the provisions contained in this Agreement are held to be unenforceable such provisions will be narrowed (or deleted if necessary) to the minimum extent necessary to make them enforceable. Innovid reserves the right to modify this Agreement at any time by posting the new terms and conditions on Innovid’s website. Changes are effective immediately upon posting.
