These terms and conditions (these “Self-Serve Terms”) govern access and use of the Paramount Global (“Paramount”) self-serve advertising platform (the “Self-Serve Platform”) by advertisers (“Advertisers”) and any agency, other third party representative or media buying service (“Agency”), acting on Advertisers’ behalf, for the purchase of advertising inventory on Paramount’s digital applications, websites and/or digital services owned, operated and/or controlled by Paramount or its affiliates or other third party properties on which Paramount or its affiliates have the ability to sell advertising inventory (collectively, “Paramount Properties”). The Self-Serve Platform is solely for the sale of advertising campaigns (“Campaign(s)”) in the United States.

By using the Self-Serve Platform, each Advertiser (by itself or through its Agency) agrees to be bound by these Self-Serve Terms, which create a legally binding contract between Advertiser, on the one hand, and Paramount, Paramount’s subsidiaries, Viacom International Inc., CBS Interactive Inc. and their respective affiliates (collectively, “Publisher” or “we”) on the other hand. If an Agency uses the Self-Serve Platform on behalf of Advertiser, including to purchase Ads (as defined below), Agency hereby agrees to be bound by these Self-Serve Terms on behalf of, and as if it were, Advertiser. For purposes of these Self-Serve Terms, Advertiser and Agency, and any individual acting on their behalf, may be collectively referred to as “Purchaser” hereinafter.

The individual agreeing to these Self-Serve Terms on behalf of Advertiser or Agency represents and warrants they have the full authority to bind Advertiser to these Self-Serve Terms.

  1. Account Creation

    Publisher has no obligation to grant any Advertiser or Agency access to the Self-Serve Platform and may deny, suspend or revoke such access at any time in its sole discretion. In order to access the Self-Serve Platform, Purchaser must provide the information required to create and maintain an account (“Platform Account”), including, without limitation, a company name, contact name, email address, phone number, other contact information for Advertiser and Agency (if applicable) and credit card information. Purchaser may authorize individuals to access and use Purchaser’s Platform Account; provided, however, that Purchaser is responsible for all activity that occurs under Purchaser’s Platform Accounts, including, without limitation, setting up, managing and revoking access levels for Purchaser’s Platform Account. Any individual who may be granted access to a Platform Account must comply with these Terms. Publisher reserves the right to: (a) confirm Purchaser is authorized to act on behalf of Advertiser or Agency; (b) verify the Advertiser is in good standing or (c) otherwise validate an Advertiser, including its creditworthiness via credit reports or its industry classification.

  2. Use of the Platform

    a. Purchasers is solely responsible for all of the advertisements and any and all related artwork, images, graphics, text, video, audio, data, trademarks, logos, URLs and/or other assets, materials or information (collectively, “Ad(s)”) Purchaser chooses to run through the Self-Serve Platform, including providing all content, materials, assets and information necessary to create an Ad and place an order for its insertion on the Paramount Properties through the Self-Serve Platform checkout process (each an “Order”). Purchaser is responsible for setting all of its desired parameters for each Order, including the Ads to be included in the Campaign, the maximum amount Purchaser wants to spend over the course of a Campaign (each a “Budget”), the start and end dates for the flight of the Campaign (the “Flight”), and various targeting criteria (if any targeting features are made available to Purchaser) (the “Targeting Criteria”), each subject to limitations set by Publisher from time to time in its sole discretion (including, without limitation, the number of Ads an Advertiser can run via the Self-Serve Platform). It is Purchaser’s responsibility to monitor its Ads and ensure they are consistent with Purchaser’s objectives. Purchaser is solely responsible for any changes to its Ads and/or Orders. Ads will stop delivering upon the earlier of: (i) the date the applicable Budget has been reached and (ii) the end of the scheduled Flight for the applicable Campaign.

    b. The Self-Serve Platform may not be used for any purpose not expressly permitted by these Self-Serve Terms or otherwise prohibited by applicable laws or regulations, including any activity that interferes with or disrupts, damages, disables or impairs the Self-Serve Platform. Publisher reserves the right to restrict, suspend, revoke or terminate access to the Self-Serve Platform at any time without notice or liability in its sole discretion, including, without limitation, if Publisher believes Purchaser has breached these Self-Serve Terms, violated any law or regulation, engaged in other inappropriate conduct or for any other reason.

    c. Publisher may add, remove, suspend or modify any features or functionality of the Self-Serve Platform at any time, in its sole discretion, without notice to Purchaser.
  3. Campaigns

    a. Policies. All Ads must comply with the Paramount Advertising Guidelines, located at (“Ad Guidelines”) and such other criteria, requirements and specifications as determined by Publisher and communicated to Purchaser, including, without limitation, those located at, (collectively, “Policies”). Notwithstanding any approval provided hereunder, Purchaser is solely responsible for ensuring Purchaser’s Ads comply with all applicable laws, rules, regulations, including, without limitation, Data Protection Laws (as defined below) (collectively, “Laws”), industry guidelines and Publisher’s Policies. Publisher may block, reject, revoke or remove any Ad for any reason at any time, including if Publisher determines an Ad is inconsistent with Publisher’s Policies, business practices, strategy, standards or brand. Publisher reserves its right to: (i) require that Purchaser modify an Ad before approval and to require modifications to any previously approved Ad; (ii) require substantiation (i.e., factual support) for any statements or claims in connection with an Ad; (iii) reject any Ad where the product or service could adversely affect the interests of Publisher or its users; (iv) revoke approval of an Ad; (v) waive or make exceptions to the Policies described in this Section in its sole discretion; and/or (vi) update the Policies at any time. For certain advertising categories (e.g., fee based gaming, political advertisements, etc.), and from time to time, Purchaser may be asked to agree to additional or alternate representations, warranties and indemnification obligations, and such additional terms and conditions shall be incorporated herein by this reference. Publisher is not responsible for Advertiser’s costs associated with producing or modifying an Ad.

    b. Publisher Approval. All Ads are subject to Publisher’s review and approval before a Campaign can begin and impressions can begin delivering; provided, however, that Publisher shall have no obligation to review and approve such Ads, and Purchaser expressly acknowledges and agrees that the foregoing shall not relieve Purchaser of its responsibility to ensure compliance with all applicable Laws (as defined below) and industry guidelines with respect to Purchaser’s use of the Self-Serve Platform and any Ads Purchaser runs, including any webpages or material to which Purchaser’s Ads link. Approval may include compliance with Publisher’s Policies (as defined below) as well as any other issues raised by Publisher in its sole discretion. Further, any delivery tags (i.e., VAST) provided by Purchaser in connection with a Campaign must be approved by Publisher in advance of each Campaign launch. Ads must be submitted to Publisher for approval via the Self-Serve Platform no less than three business days before the scheduled Campaign start date. Any modifications required for the Ad to comply with Publisher’s Policies may result in a delay to the Campaign start date. It is Purchaser’s responsibility to regularly check the status of an Ad, including whether it has been approved, rejected or requires modification within the Self-Serve Platform. In the event an Ad has not been approved before the Campaign start date, Publisher will automatically pause the Campaign. If a Campaign begins later than its scheduled start date, the end date will not be adjusted, and the number of impressions delivered during the Campaign may be reduced accordingly. A Campaign will be automatically canceled in the event an Ad is not approved before the scheduled Campaign end date. Publisher has no obligation to back-up, store, retrieve or return any Ad to Purchaser. A Campaign will be automatically canceled in the event that no Ad is uploaded and approved prior to the end of the scheduled Flight. Publisher may provide a creative library for Advertiser containing Ads previously approved by Publisher for use by the Advertiser in a new Campaign. Publisher’s review and approval of Ads are solely for Publisher’s purposes, and Publisher shall have no liability for the content of any such approved Ads.

    c. Targeting. Publisher may provide Advertiser with the option to target an Ad to a desired audience based on Targeting Criteria selected by Advertiser in the Self-Serve Platform; provided, however, that Publisher does not guarantee Ads will reach the targeted audience, and Purchaser remains solely responsible for any targeting or trafficking decisions Purchaser makes. Advertiser may choose whether and in what combination to use Targeting Criteria; provided, however, that it is Advertiser’s sole responsibility to do so in compliance with applicable Laws and industry standards. If no targeting criteria is applied, Ad(s) will be served across available inventory at Publisher’s discretion. Purchaser acknowledges that Publisher does not guarantee that available Targeting Criteria will remain available, and Publisher may update and/or remove Targeting criteria at any time. In the event Publisher makes such changes during a Flight that materially impact the applicable Campaign, Publisher will refund Purchaser for the unused pre-paid fees for the Campaign.

    d. Delivery. Publisher will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure Purchaser’s approved Ad is delivered according to Purchaser’s selected criteria; provided, however, that Publisher does not guarantee the reach or performance of Ads or delivery of all impressions reflected in the applicable Campaign’s Budget or that Ads will reach the intended audience. Delivery is subject to availability and may not be continuous. Publisher is not responsible for any technical issues that may affect the delivery of Ads or availability of the Paramount Properties. Publisher reserves the right to reject, pause, suspend or cancel any Ad and/or Order placed through the Self-Serve Platform for any reason in its sole discretion without any liability to Advertiser or any third party.

    e. Editorial Adjacencies. Publisher makes no commitments regarding editorial adjacency, content adjacency or competitive separation.

    f. Reporting. Publisher may make reporting available to help Purchaser understand how Purchaser’s Ads perform; provided, however, that Publisher makes no guarantees as to the accuracy, suitability or reliability of such information (if any). Publisher is under no obligation to provide Advertiser with additional information regarding the performance of an Ad or any other aspects of the Campaign. All reporting and any data or information contained therein, may only be used for Advertiser’s internal purposes, in accordance with Section 6 below.

    g. Cancellation. Publisher reserves the right to cancel, pause or suspend any Ad or Campaign in its sole discretion. If Advertiser wishes to cancel or pause a Campaign, it must do so directly through the Self-Serve Platform for the request to be effective. If a Campaign is cancelled, impressions will stop delivering and Advertiser will only be charged for the impressions delivered, including during the short period while the cancellation request is processed. If a Campaign is paused, impressions will stop delivering and Advertiser will be charged for all impressions delivered; provided, however, that Advertiser may also resume the Campaign at any time before the scheduled Flight end date. Pausing a Campaign will not extend or modify the scheduled Flight end date, and the number of impressions delivered during the Campaign may be reduced accordingly.

    h. Makegoods. Makegoods for under-delivery of impressions are not available in the Self-Serve Platform. In the event an Ad under-delivers purchased impressions, or in the event an Ad or Order is cancelled, a pro rata refund will automatically be made for the unfulfilled portion of Purchaser’s Order to Purchaser’s credit card or other payment method on record. If refunds are provided, such refunds will be issued after the applicable Flight end date. Purchaser agrees that the foregoing refund constitutes Purchaser’s sole and exclusive remedy with respect to any under-delivery of impressions or cancelled Ads or Orders. For purposes of these Self-Serve Terms, Advertisers agrees all Ads are deemed 100% viewable.

    i. Discounts. Publisher, in its sole discretion, may choose to offer a code, credit, coupon or other discount in an amount and on terms and restrictions provided by Publisher. Account codes, credits, coupons or other discounts are non-transferable and may not be redeemed for cash. If Advertiser’s account is cancelled, Advertiser will forfeit any account codes, credits, coupons or other discounts.
  4. Billing and Payments

    a. Billing. Publisher may enable Purchaser to purchase Ads using various pricing models depending on the Ad format as determined by Publisher in Publisher’s sole discretion. If made available via the Self-Serve Platform, Ads may be purchased on a cost-per-thousand basis (“CPM”), meaning Purchaser will pay a fixed rate for a certain number of ad impressions. Purchaser will only be charged for impressions actually delivered. All charges are based on Publisher’s measurement and calculation as to the number of impressions, which is final under these Self-Serve Terms. All amounts paid for delivered impressions are non-refundable.

    b. Payment Method. Purchaser must provide a credit card or form of payment currently accepted by Publisher (“Payment Method”) in order to submit an Order for a Campaign via the Self-Serve Platform. Publisher or its third-party payment processor(s) may run one or more payment authorization checks in order to validate the Payment Method. To avoid Campaign interruptions, the expiration date associated with the Payment Method should occur after the scheduled end date of any Campaigns. By providing a Payment Method, Purchaser authorizes Publisher or its payment processor(s) to charge that Payment Method for all amounts due (including applicable taxes) in connection with any Orders submitted through the Self-Serve Platform; to store Purchaser’s payment card information and to continue billing the card until Purchaser’s Orders have been fulfilled. Purchaser represents and warrants that any payment information Purchaser submits via the Self-Serve Platform is true, accurate and complete to the best of Purchaser’s knowledge. The Payment Method must be valid until the end of the Order because refunds permitted under these Self-Serve Terms can only be issued to the original Payment Method used for the Order.

    c. Taxes. Publisher reserves the right to collect and charge, and Purchaser expressly acknowledges and agrees that Purchaser will be responsible for paying, any sales, use, value added or similar taxes, duties, charges or assessments that may become due in accordance with applicable Law in connection with Purchaser’s use of the Self-Serve Platform or payments hereunder. Each Budget is exclusive of any such taxes.

    d. Payment Failures. If Purchaser’s Payment Method fails, Publisher will suspend or pause Purchaser’s Ads and cease delivering impressions. Publisher will cancel the Campaign in the event Advertiser does not provide a new Payment Method before the scheduled Campaign end date. Advertiser remains obligated to pay Publisher for any impressions delivered and agrees to pay all amounts due. Purchaser is responsible for paying all amounts billed to Purchaser’s Payment Method, whether or not authorized by Purchaser. Publisher may take steps to collect past due amounts using collection mechanisms it deems appropriate and may cancel any current or future Campaigns on the Self-Serve Platform. Purchaser will pay all reasonable costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred in collecting any late payments. Any disputes about payments made in connection with an advertising purchase pursuant to these Self-Serve Terms must be submitted to Publisher in writing within 60 days of the date Purchaser incurred such charge. If Purchaser fails to submit a dispute in accordance with the foregoing, Purchaser waives such dispute, and the applicable charge will be deemed final and not subject to challenge unless otherwise required by applicable Law.
  5. License Grant

    Purchaser hereby grants Publisher a non-exclusive, non-transferable (except as provided herein), worldwide, royalty-free right and license during the Flight period to format, reproduce, display, distribute, publish, perform and promote Advertiser’s Ad, in any size, placement or location on the Paramount Properties and exercise and exploit any and all intellectual property, publicity and any other proprietary rights embodied in Purchaser’s Ads in connection with Purchaser’s Campaigns and these Self-Serve Terms.
