These Visit Turks and Caicos Islands Limited Advertising Terms (“Terms”) are entered into by Visit Turks and Caicos Islands Limited with its registered office located at 1276 Leeward Highway, Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands (“Visit Turks and Caicos Islands”) and the entity executing these Terms or that accepts these Terms electronically (“Customer”). These Terms govern Customer’s participation in Visit Turks and Caicos Islands’ advertising programmes and services (i) that are accessible through the account(s) given to Customer in connection with these Terms or (ii) that reference or are referenced by these Terms (collectively, “Programmes”). In consideration of the foregoing, the parties agree as follows:
(1) Programmes. Customer authorizes Visit Turks and Caicos Islands and any entity that directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with, Visit Turks and Caicos Islands from time to time (“Affiliates”) to place Customer’s advertising materials and related technology (collectively, “Ads” or “Creative”) on any content or property (each a “Property”) provided by Visit Turks and Caicos Islands or its Affiliates on behalf of itself or, as applicable, a third party (“Partner”). Customer is solely responsible for all: (i) Creative, (ii) Ad trafficking or targeting decisions (e.g., keywords) (“Targets”), (iii) Properties to which Creative directs viewers (e.g., landing pages) along with the related URLs and redirects (“Destinations”) and (iv) services and products advertised on Destinations (collectively, “Services”). The Programme is an advertising platform on which Customer authorizes Visit Turks and Caicos Islands to use automated tools to format Ads. In these Terms an “Advertiser” is an entity whose Ads (whether created by itself or by a third party on its behalf) are placed by Customer through a Programme. If Customer is using a Programme on its own behalf to advertise and not on behalf of an Advertiser, for that use Customer will be deemed to be both Customer and Advertiser. Visit Turks and Caicos Islands and its Affiliates may make available to Customer certain optional Programme features to assist Customer with the selection and generation of Targets and Creative. Customer is not required to authorize use of these optional Targeting and Creative features and, as applicable, may opt-in to or opt-out of usage of these features, but if Customer uses these features then Customer will be solely responsible for the Targets and Creative. Visit Turks and Caicos Islands or Partners may reject or remove a specific Ad or Target at any time for any or no reason. Visit Turks and Caicos Islands and its Affiliates may modify or cancel Programmes at any time. Customer acknowledges that Visit Turks and Caicos Islands or its Affiliates may participate in the Programme in support of its own services and products.
(2) Policies. Customer is solely responsible for its use of the Programmes (e.g., access to and use of Programme accounts and safeguarding usernames and passwords) (“Use”). Programme Use is subject to applicable Visit Turks and Caicos Islands policies available at www.visittci.com/privacy and all applicable Partner policies made available by Visit Turks and Caicos Islands to Customer (in each case, as modified from time to time, “Policies”).
(3) Ad Serving. (a) Customer will not provide Ads containing malware, spyware or any other malicious code or knowingly breach or circumvent any Programme security measure. (b) Customer may utilize an Ad server solely for serving or tracking Ads. Customer is responsible for inputting Ad server tags so that they are materially functional.
(4) Ad Cancellation. Unless a Policy, the Programme user interface or an agreement referencing these Terms (an “IO”) provides otherwise, either party may cancel any Ad at any time. Cancelled Ads will generally cease serving within 4 business hours or as described in a Policy or IO. Customer must effect cancellation of Ads (i) online through Customer’s account if the functionality is available, (ii) if this functionality is not available, with notice to Visit Turks and Caicos Islands via email to Customer’s account representative or (iii) if Customer does not have an account representative, with notice to Visit Turks and Caicos Islands via email to firstname.lastname@example.org . Visit Turks and Caicos Islands will not be bound by a Customer provided insertion order or other Customer provided terms and conditions.
(5) Warranty and Rights. Each party warrants to the other that it will use reasonable skill and care in complying with its obligations under these Terms. Customer warrants that (a) it holds, and hereby grants Visit Turks and Caicos Islands, its Affiliates and Partners, the rights in Creative, Destinations and Targets for Visit Turks and Caicos Islands, its Affiliates and Partners to operate the Programmes, (b) all information and authorizations provided by or on behalf of Customer are complete, correct and current, and (c) Use, the Services or Destinations will not: (i) violate or encourage violation of any law or applicable regulation or code of practice (ii) infringe any intellectual property rights of any third party and or contain any material which may be harmful, abusive, obscene, threatening or defamatory. Customer authorizes Visit Turks and Caicos Islands and its Affiliates to automate retrieval and analysis of Destinations for the purposes of the Programmes. Visit Turks and Caicos Islands may, upon request of an Advertiser, share Advertiser-specific information with Advertiser.
(6) Make Goods. Customer acknowledges that in the event of failure by Visit Turks and Caicos Islands to deliver Ads for any reason, Customer’s sole remedy is to make a claim within 60 days after the invoice date (“Claim Period”). If Visit Turks and Caicos Islands confirms the accuracy of the claim, then Visit Turks and Caicos Islands will not charge Customer for undelivered Ads during the times times affected, or if Customer has already paid, Visit Turks and Caicos Islands, at its reasonable discretion, will provide for (i) advertising credits, which must be used by the Use By Date, or (ii) later placement of the Ads in a manner Visit Turks and Caicos Islands deems comparable.
(7) Payment. Customer will pay all charges incurred in connection with the Programme, in immediately available funds or as otherwise approved by Visit Turks and Caicos Islands, within a commercially reasonable time period specified by Visit Turks and Caicos Islands (e.g., in the Programme user interface or IO). Charges are exclusive of taxes, if applicable. Customer will pay (i) all taxes and other government charges and (ii) reasonable expenses together with legal and other professional fees Visit Turks and Caicos Islands incurs in collecting late payments. Charges are solely based on Visit Turks and Caicos Islands’ measurements for the Programmes and the applicable billing metrics. Any portion of a charge not disputed in good faith must be paid in full. No party may offset any payment due under these Terms against any other payment to be made under these Terms. Visit Turks and Caicos Islands may, in its sole discretion, extend, revise or revoke credit at any time. Visit Turks and Caicos Islands is not obligated to deliver any Ads in excess of any credit limit. If Visit Turks and Caicos Islands delivers Ads but does not deliver those Ads to the selected Targets, then Customer’s sole remedy for Visit Turks and Caicos Islands’ failure to deliver those Ads to the selected Targets is to make a claim for advertising credits within the Claim Period, after which Visit Turks and Caicos Islands will issue the credits following claim validation which must be used by the Use By Date. Customer understands that third parties may generate impressions or clicks on Customer’s Ads for prohibited or improper purposes and that its sole remedy is to make a claim for advertising credits within the Claim Period, after which Visit Turks and Caicos Islands will issue the credits following claim validation which must be used by the Use By Date. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, (A) CUSTOMER WAIVES ALL CLAIMS RELATING TO ANY PROGRAMME CHARGES UNLESS A CLAIM IS MADE WITHIN THE CLAIM PERIOD AND (B) THE ISSUANCE OF ADVERTISING CREDITS (IF ANY) IS AT VISIT TURKS AND CAICOS ISLANDS' REASONABLE DISCRETION AND IF ISSUED, MUST BE USED BY THE USE BY DATE. Customer acknowledges and agrees that any account, credit card and related billing and payment information which Customer provides to Visit Turks and Caicos Islands may be shared by Visit Turks and Caicos Islands with companies who work on Visit Turks and Caicos Islands’ behalf solely for the purpose of performing credit checks, effecting payment to Visit Turks and Caicos Islands, collecting debts owed to Visit Turks and Caicos Islands and/or servicing Customer's account.
