During the Service, Member will be granted access and may view the online reports relating to its activity within the Mobfox reporting system (the “Report”), which during the relevant month are only estimated non-final numbers that may be changed or adjusted by Mobfox until 15 days after the end of the relevant month. At the end of the month the reports will be frozen and within 15 days will include the definitive numbers of earnings as maybe adjusted as aforesaid. Member agrees that Mobfox stats will be final and binding in every case and serve as the sole basis for the calculation of Member’s payments.
6. PUBLISHER PAYMENT
6.1 Mobfox will credit the Publisher’s account with a payout for each action made by a visitor through the Publisher’s mobile application / website (“Transaction”) on the basis of the agreed payout rate under the applicable ad program. Mobfox will pay to the Publisher by Pay Pal or wire any amounts due to Publisher, approximately 30 days after the end of the month, regardless of whether payment has been collected from the Advertiser. Publisher shall pay all applicable fees, taxes, commissions, transaction fees or the like in connection with such payment.
Mobfox may, at Mobfox’s sole discretion, apply an estimated number of payouts if: (i) the Publisher is referring visitors to Advertiser as verified by clicks through links to Advertiser with Mobfox’s Report, (ii) in the case of an error in Advertiser’s transmission of the Report data to Mobfox, and (iii) in an instance in which Mobfox is able to utilize a historical analysis of the Publisher promotion of Advertiser in order to determine an equitable number of estimated payouts.
If Publisher does not earn the minimum amount in a month, the balance will be carried forward until such time as the minimum amount is earned or until this Agreement is terminated. The Publisher acknowledges that the minimum amount may vary based upon the applicable currency being used and that the binding minimum amount will be the amount listed in Mobfox’s system as may be updated from time to time. Publishers are responsible for ensuring that their bank details, address and Pay Pal e-mail address are correct in their Mobfox Account details in order to receive payment.
Notwithstanding the aforesaid, Mobfox reserves the right to reclassify any Transactions and reduce any payments due to Publisher because of any claims, demands, offsets or the like made by Advertisers for invalid events, technical errors, tracking discrepancies or similar events that produce invalid results, even if the applicable Transaction was originally approved. Mobfox will compile, calculate and electronically deliver to Publisher the relevant data required to determine Publisher’s billing and compensation. The Publisher acknowledges that payments are based on the Report and hereby waives any claim and/or demand towards Mobfox as a result of discrepancy between the Report and any other similar tracking system.
