Terms & Conditions
Dantes Ink. (“Dantes Ink”) provides a range of advertising products and services for small and medium-sized businesses (the “Advertising Services”). The Booking Form (the “Booking Form”) sets forth which Advertising Services are being purchased by Client (“Client”), the costs for such Advertising Services, and other relevant details of the proposed advertising campaign (the “Campaign”). These Advertising Services Terms and Conditions (“Advertising Terms”), together with any other special terms relating to the product or service ordered referenced herein or in the relevant Booking Form, shall be incorporated by reference into and made a part of any Booking Form submitted to Dantes Ink and govern the relationship between Dantes Ink and Client. No other terms proposed by Client shall apply unless expressly agreed to in the relevant Booking Form. All Booking Forms are subject to acceptance by Dantes Ink in its sole discretion. The Booking Form and any data processing agreements entered into between the parties in connection with the Advertising Services, the Advertising Terms and the documents and/or links referenced in the Booking Form are referred to as the “Agreement.”
The Agreement binds the parties from the time that Dantes Ink accepts by counter-signing or where electronic acceptance is used, by sending a confirmation email that it accepts the Booking Form that Client has signed or accepted electronically without modifications, for the duration of the Term, as set forth below. Dantes Ink may change the terms and/or the services at any time on 2 weeks’ written notice to Client. If the change is material and results in a material detriment to the Client and Client notifies Dantes Ink within the 2-week period following receipt of such notice, Client may terminate the Agreement and will be entitled to a refund of any unspent Campaign Media, Management & Optimisation Fees or Tracking Technology Services Fees or other applicable fees set out in the Product Terms as at the date Client gives notice it wishes to terminate. Otherwise, the change will be deemed accepted once the 2 week notice period has expired.
1. ADVERTISING SERVICES
The Advertising Services include, but are not limited to, the following products and services (where contracted for under the relevant Booking Form):
PPC refers to Dantes Ink’s standard search engine marketing product, where Dantes Ink promotes Client through various search engines in their non-organic search results. Dantes Ink Search is Dantes Ink’s proprietary search advertising service which places each client’s text ads on top Internet search engines and local directories so local consumers searching for keywords related to a client’s business, products and services can find such client easily. For each campaign, Dantes Ink’s conversion linked optimization technology learns over time which keywords and sources drive the most leads to the respective client’s website, and is able to shift more of the client’s media budget automatically to such sources. Also, the company’s tracking technology replaces the contact information on each client’s website(s) and records the related consumer interaction so that clients can easily follow up on leads and track the activity their campaigns generate. The results of the campaigns can be accessed online at any time while the campaign is live.
Display refers to Dantes Ink’s standard online display product, where Dantes Ink promotes Client through online display advertisements disseminated through Dantes Ink’s network of online publishers.
Remarketing refers to Dantes Ink’s behavioural targeting product that enables Dantes Ink to display an ad to consumers who have previously evidenced interest in Client’s products or services.
Client will be able to see the additional terms and conditions governing each of Dantes Ink’s Advertising Services by clicking the links above (the “Product Terms”). These Advertising Terms take precedence over any conflicting schedule or document unless expressly stated otherwise in such schedule or document.
As Dantes Ink adds other products and services, such products and services will be referenced in the Booking Form and any special terms and conditions will be linked to in a revised version of this document.
a. Identification of Fees. Client agrees to pay the amounts set forth in the Booking Form in accordance with Section 3 and as may be further explained in the Product Terms (the “Fees”). The Fees are generally divided into Product Fees (e.g. Campaign Media, Management and Optimisation Fees payable for PPC), Service Fees (e.g. Tracking Technology Services Fees payable for PPC) and Set-Up Fees. Product Fees are the recurring fees that Client will be charged for the specific product Client has purchased as shown on the Booking Form. Service Fees are for the delivery of any premium services that Dantes Ink may, from time to time, offer. Set-Up Fees are one-time fees for the set-up of campaigns or other services.
b. No Pass-Through Obligations. Client is not entitled to any credits, discounts, rebates, or refunds provided to Dantes Ink by its third-party publishers (“Publishers”).
3. PAYMENT TERMS
General. Once a Booking Form has been accepted by Dantes Ink, Client will be responsible for payment in full of all fees set forth therein. All payments due hereunder are in pounds sterling and are exclusive of any sales, use or similar applicable taxes, which shall be the sole responsibility of Client.
a. Manner of Payment. Client may pay for all amounts payable under this Agreement by credit card (the “Client’s Card”), ACH (electronic debit from Client’s bank account) or such other form of payment as Dantes Ink may, in its sole discretion, permit. If paying by credit card or ACH, Client will be required to sign and comply with the applicable payment authorization forms. In the case of payment through ACH, no amounts owing are considered paid until the electronic debit has been received by Dantes Ink’s bank.
b. Timing of Payment. Fees, as identified on the Booking Form, are due in advance of each Cycle for PPC (means the time period (approximately 30 days) over which the relevant Campaign Budget will be exhausted) as more fully described in the Product Terms. If there are Set-Up Fees (as set forth on the Booking Form), such Fees shall be paid in advance together with all amounts owed for the first Cycle. Dantes Ink shall have the right to charge the Client’s Card or debit from Client’s account through ACH for Fees in accordance with these Advertising Terms and the Product Terms. In case of payment through ACH, Dantes Ink shall send a prenotification with a minimum notice of 2 days prior to collecting any due Fees. Client understands and acknowledges that all amounts owed must be paid in advance and that, in addition to being in breach of its contractual obligations, Client’s Campaign(s) may be paused or terminated if timely payment is not received.
Term. Unless specified in the Booking Form otherwise, the Advertising Services will continue indefinitely until terminated in accordance with these Advertising Terms. Otherwise, the Advertising Services will automatically end after the completion of the Initial Cycles. It is also recognised that additional campaigns or services may be requested by the Client, these shall be governed under the terms of the original agreement (Booking Form) and will continue indefinitely until terminated, at the point of request.
a. Termination by Dantes Ink.
Dantes Ink may terminate this Agreement or any Advertising Service(s) provided hereunder immediately without notice and without cause, subject to Section 4(g).
B. TERMINATION BY CLIENT.
1. If Client gives written notice to Dantes Ink of the termination of the Agreement or any Advertising Service(s) provided hereunder (the “Termination Notice”) at least 14 days prior to the expiry of the Initial Cycle then such termination will take effect on the expiry of the following Cycle.
2. If Client gives written notice of the termination of the Agreement or any Advertising Service(s) provided hereunder less than 14 days before the expiry of the Initial Cycle or at any time after the expiry of the Initial Cycle, then such termination will take effect on the date of expiry of the second full Cycle following the date of the Termination Notice. For example, if the Client has purchased 10 Cycles and gives the Termination Notice whilst in the middle of 7th Cycle, the termination will be effective after completion (and payment) through to the 9th Cycle).
3. Any notices should be sent per email to firstname.lastname@example.org
4. For Advertising Services that are specified not to auto-renew in the Booking Form or for Advertising Services contracted under Booking Forms entered into before 01 June 2020 only, the Agreement will terminate at the end of the period of committed Cycles set out in the relevant Booking Form without the need for Client to give written notice.
c. Termination Revocation. Client may, on written notice to Dantes Ink (email is acceptable) revoke such termination given in accordance with Section 4 (b) within thirty (30) days after Client has provided Dantes Ink with the Termination Notice, in which case the Booking Form will be reinstated and all applicable campaigns, if they had been stopped, will be re-initiated upon payment in full of all amounts owed.
d. Termination for Cause. The parties may terminate this Agreement or any Advertising Service(s) provided hereunder with immediate effect for an important reason (termination for cause). If the important reason is a contract breach, the termination for cause generally requires the expiration of a reasonable remedial period or, respectively, a prior warning notice without result. For a termination for cause given by the Client the remedial period generally is not less than thirty one (31) days.”
e. No Refunds. Client understands and agrees that Client will not be entitled to any refunds of amounts already paid to Dantes Ink, unless either Client terminates under the introduction paragraph above or Section 4(b) or Dantes Ink terminates under Section 4(a), in which case Client shall only be entitled to a refund for the unspent balance of the then applicable Cycle Payment which can be checked at any time on the FM dashboard.
f. Collection of Amounts Owed. Any amounts not paid by Client when due shall bear interest at the rate of 1.5% per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less). Client agrees to pay all costs of collection (including attorneys’ fees and costs and all other legal and collection expenses) incurred by Dantes Ink in connection with the enforcement of its rights under the Agreement.
g. Effect of Termination Survival. Client understands and acknowledges that due to the nature of the Internet, certain information regarding Client that was posted on the Internet as part of the Advertising Services, including, for instance, the Local Profile (as defined in Section 1(c) of the Media Product Terms), may continue to be available on the Internet after the termination of this Agreement. All provisions of this Agreement that in order to be effective shall survive the termination of this Agreement. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, in the event of any termination, Client shall remain liable for any amounts due to Dantes Ink as of the effective date of termination and all limits of liability, indemnity obligations, and confidentiality obligations shall survive indefinitely.
