REGARDING WOODBERRY & ASSOCIATES GLOBAL CONSULTING & DEVELOPMENT SERVICES INC.’s PRINT MAGAZINE PUBLICATION (“MAGAZINES”), WEBSITES (“WEBSITE”) AND MOBILE APPLICATIONS AND DIGITAL MAGAZINES (“APPS”) FOR MILLENNIUM MAGAZINE.
A. Millennium Magazine’s Right to Reject, Cancel or Terminate Orders
Millennium Magazine reserves the right at its absolute discretion, and at any time, to cancel any advertising order or reject any advertising copy, whether or not the same has already been acknowledged and/or previously published, displayed, performed or transmitted (collectively referred to herein as “Published” or “Publish”), including, but not limited to, for reasons relating to the content of the advertisement or any technology associated with the advertisement. In the event of such cancellation or rejection by Millennium Magazine, advertising already run shall be paid for at the rate that would apply if the entire order were Published and no short rate will apply.
In addition, Millennium Magazine reserves the right to (i) remove from selected copies of its Magazines and Apps advertisements containing matter that subscribers have deemed objectionable; and (ii) implement blocking technology (including geo-blocking technology) in connection with its Websites and Apps.
Millennium Magazine, at its absolute discretion, may terminate its relationship with Advertiser and/or Agency for the breach of any of the terms hereof, including without limitation a breach based on the failure on the part of either Advertiser or Agency to pay each bill by its due date. Should Millennium Magazine terminate its relationship with Advertiser and/or Agency, a short-rate may apply and all charges incurred together with short-rate charges shall be immediately due and payable. Furthermore, in the event Advertiser or Agency breaches, Millennium Magazine may, in addition to its other remedies, (a) cancel its recognition of Agency, thereby causing Agency to lose claim to any commission for any further advertising placed with Millennium Magazine on behalf of Advertiser or any other client, and/or (b) refuse to Publish any or all of Advertiser’s advertising.
B. Advertiser’s Failure to Run Advertising/Short-Rate
All agreements for advertising frequency discounts require that the specified number of advertisements be Published within a specified period and be promptly paid for. In the event of Advertiser’s or its Agency’s cancellation of any portion of any advertising order/contract or failure to have Published and paid for the specified number of advertisements, or if at any time Millennium Magazine in its reasonable judgment determines that Advertiser is not likely to Publish and pay for the total amount of advertising specified during the term of the agreement, any rate discount will be retroactively nullified, including for previously Published advertisements, and may result in a short-rate. In such event, Advertiser and/or Agency must reimburse Millennium Magazine for the short-rate (which is the difference between the rate charged on the contracted frequency and the higher rate based on the reduced frequency of advertisements actually Published and paid for) within 30 days of invoice therefore and Advertiser will thereafter pay for advertising at the open rate or at the earned rate(s) as applicable. Any merchandising program executed by Millennium Magazine in reliance on advertising that is cancelled will be paid for by Advertiser at the fair market rate for such program. Advertising credits (for any earned advertising frequency discount adjustments for advertising run in excess of specified schedule) will only be earned if all advertising is paid for by the due date. Advertising credits must be used by the Advertiser within six months after the end of the period in which they were earned. Unused advertising credits will expire six months after the end of the period in which they were earned.
C. Restrictions on Advertiser’s Ability to Cancel Advertising Orders
Orders for inside or outside cover pages are non-cancelable. Options on cover positions must be exercised at least 30 days prior to four-color closing date. If an order is not received by such date, the cover option automatically lapses. Orders for all inside advertising units are non-cancelable less than 15 days prior to closing date. Orders for furnished inserts are non-cancelable less than 15 days prior to closing date. Orders for all Millennium Magazine-produced inserts are non-cancelable. If, however, Millennium Magazine agrees to cancel an existing order, Advertiser will be responsible for the cost of any work performed or materials purchased on behalf of Advertiser, including the cost of services, paper and/or printing.
D. Advertising Positioning at Millennium’s Discretion
Orders for advertising containing restrictions or specifying positions, facings, editorial adjacencies or other requirements may be accepted and Published but such restrictions or specifications are at Millennium Magazine’s sole discretion.
E. Labeling of Advertisements
Advertisements that simulate editorial content must be clearly identified and labeled “ADVERTISEMENT” or “PROMOTION” or “SPECIAL ADVERTISING SECTION” at the top of the advertisement, and Millennium Magazine may, in its discretion, so label such copy.
Advertiser and Agency understand that advertisements and/or other commercial messages sent on its behalf by Millennium Magazine via electronic mail may be governed by federal, state and local laws, rules and regulations, including without limitation the Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing Act of 2003 and any acts related thereto, and including the interpretations thereof by the FTC or other governmental authorities (collectively, the “CAN-SPAM Act”) and state “Do Not E-mail” registries. Advertiser agrees to comply with all such applicable laws, rules and regulations. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Advertiser shall fulfill all obligations of a “Sender” as specified in the CAN-SPAM Act, unless Millennium Magazine agrees in writing to be designated as the “Sender”. In either case, Advertiser agrees to comply with Millennium Magazine’s policies intended to comply with the CAN-SPAM Act.
An accurate copy of any furnished insert must be submitted to Millennium Magazine for review prior to the printing of the insert. Millennium Magazine’s review and/or approval of such copy does not release or relinquish Advertiser/Agency from its responsibilities hereunder. Millennium Magazine is not responsible for errors or omissions in, or the production quality of, furnished inserts. Advertiser and/or Agency shall be responsible for any additional charges incurred by Millennium Magazine arising out of Advertiser and/or Agency’s failure to deliver furnished inserts pursuant to Millennium Magazine’s specifications. In the event that Millennium Magazine is unable to publish the furnished insert as a result of such failure to comply, Advertiser and/or Agency shall remain liable for the space cost of such insert.
H. Errors in or Omissions of Advertisements
In the event of Millennium Magazine’s errors in or omissions of any advertisement(s), Millennium Magazine’s liability shall be limited to a credit of the amount paid attributable to the space of the error (in no event shall such credit exceed the total amount paid to Millennium Magazine for the advertisement), and Millennium Magazine shall have no liability unless the error/omission is brought to the Millennium Magazine’s attention no later than 15 days after the advertisement is first Published. However, if a copy of the advertisement was provided or reviewed by Advertiser, Millennium Magazine shall have no liability. In no event will Millennium Magazine have any liability for errors or omissions caused by force majeure or errors in key numbers, nor will Millennium Magazine have any liability for any consequential, indirect, incidental, punitive, special or exemplary damages whatsoever, including without limitation, damages for loss of profits, business interruption, loss of information and the like.

K. Responsibility for Payment of Advertising Bills
In the event an order is placed by an Agency on behalf of Advertiser, such Agency warrants and represents that it has full right and authority to place such order on behalf of Advertiser and that all legal obligations arising out of the placement of the advertisement will be binding on both Advertiser and Agency. Advertiser and its Agency, if there be one, each agrees to be jointly and severally liable for the payment of all bills and charges incurred for each advertisement placed on Advertiser’s behalf. Advertiser authorizes Millennium Magazine, at its election, to tender any bill to Agency, and such tender shall constitute due notice to Advertiser of the bill and such manner of billing shall in no way impair or limit the joint and several liability of Advertiser and Agency. Any bill tendered by Millennium Magazine shall constitute an account stated unless written objection thereto is received by Millennium Magazine within ten (10) days from the rendering thereof. Payment by Advertiser to Agency shall not discharge Advertiser’s liability to Millennium Magazine. The rights of Millennium Magazine shall in no way be affected by any dispute or claim between Advertiser and Agency. Advertiser and Agency agree to reimburse Millennium Magazine for its costs and attorneys’ fees in collecting any unpaid advertising charges. Advertiser confirms that it has appointed Agency, if one is specified, to be its authorized representative with respect to all matters relating to advertising placed on Advertiser’s behalf with the understanding that Agency may be paid a commission.
L. No Assignment of Advertising
Advertiser and its Agency may not use any advertising space either directly or indirectly for any business, organization, enterprise, product, or service other than that for which the advertising space is provided by Millennium Magazine, nor may Advertiser or Agency authorize any others to use any advertising space.
M. Republication of Advertisements
Advertiser and Agency agree that any submitted advertisements Published, may, at Millennium Magazine’s option, be republished, re-performed, retransmitted or otherwise reused by Millennium Magazine or its agents in any form in whole or in part in all media now in existence or hereafter developed, whether or not combined with material of others.

ADDITIONAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
APPLICABLE TO MILLENNIUM MAGAZINE’S WEBSITES AND APPS
For the purpose of clarification, the terms and conditions set forth in Sections A through R above apply to all advertisements Published in Woodberry & Associate’s Magazines, Websites and Apps. In addition, the following terms and conditions (“Additional Terms”) shall apply to all advertisements Published on Millennium Magazine’s Websites and Apps as provided below. To the extent the Additional Terms directly conflict with or are inconsistent with Sections A through R above, the Additional Terms shall govern with respect to Millennium Magazine’s Websites and Apps.
S. Impression Guarantees and Calculations
Millennium Magazine makes no guarantee or representation as to the quantity and/or quality of visits, impressions, circulation, or other usage of Millennium Magazine’s Websites or Apps or of the advertisement, or as to the use of any particular tracking or information-gathering devices, unless Millennium Magazine expressly agrees otherwise in writing. In addition, all impressions and/or other measurements of advertisements for Millennium Magazine’s Websites and Apps shall be based solely on Millennium Magazine’s calculations for its Websites and Apps. Unless otherwise agreed to in writing by Millennium Magazine, Millennium Magazine will bill for the advertising on Millennium Magazine’s Websites based on such Websites’ own ad delivery numbers (“DFP numbers”); and, if applicable, Millennium Magazine has the right to bill for advertising in Millennium Magazine’s Apps based on its DFP numbers. In the event Millennium Magazine and Advertiser agree in writing that certain ads will be billed based on ad delivery numbers other than the applicable Website’s (and/or Apps’) own DFP numbers (i.e., third party numbers), Millennium Magazine will bill for such ads based on such third party numbers as long as the delivery discrepancy from third party numbers and DFP numbers is less than ten percent (10%). In the event that a difference of ten percent (10%) or more arises, both Millennium Magazine and Advertiser/Agency agree to use reasonable efforts to reconcile the difference and come to a mutually agreed upon solution. If an agreement cannot be reached or if Advertiser fails to provide its third party ad delivery numbers within ten (10) business days after the end of each month of its ad campaign, Millennium Magazine reserves the right to bill Agency/Advertiser at a delivery rate of ninety percent (90%) of DFP numbers. To the extent Millennium Magazine fails to provide Advertiser with the number of impressions guaranteed (if applicable) on its Websites or Apps, Millennium Magazine will provide as a sole remedy a make-good, by extending the order beyond the contracted advertising flight period until the remainder of the guaranteed impressions are delivered. For purposes of clarification, Advertisers that request a special billing schedule or an upfront bill will not receive refunds/adjustments in the case of under-delivery of guaranteed impressions (if applicable).
T. Errors in or Omissions of Advertisements
In the event of Millennium Magazine’s errors in or omissions of any advertisement(s) on its Websites or Apps (including, but not limited to, errors or omissions involved in converting Advertiser’s ads into an App), Millennium Magazine’s sole liability shall be limited to a credit of the amount paid attributable to the space of the error (in no event shall such credit exceed the total amount paid to Millennium Magazine for the advertisement), and Millennium Magazine shall have no liability unless the error/omission is brought to the Millennium Magazine’s attention no later than 5 days after the advertisement is first Published. However, if a copy of the advertisement was provided or reviewed by Advertiser, Millennium Magazine shall have no liability. In the event of a suspension of Millennium Magazine’s Websites or Apps due to computer, software, or network malfunction, congestion, repair, strike, accidents, fire, flood or any other cause or contingencies or force majeure beyond the reasonable control of Millennium Magazine, it is agreed that such suspension shall not invalidate any advertising agreement but a) will give Millennium Magazine the option to cancel any advertising agreement, or if Millennium Magazine does not do so, b) upon resumption of Millennium Magazine’s Websites and/or Apps, the agreement shall be continued and Millennium Magazine will have no liability for any errors or omissions or any damages caused by such suspension. In no event will Millennium Magazine have any liability for errors in key numbers, nor will Millennium Magazine have any liability for any consequential, indirect, incidental, punitive, special or exemplary damages whatsoever, including without limitation, damages for loss of profits, business interruption, loss of information and the like.
