These T&Cs, together with the Order, (collectively the “Agreement”) govern Company’s access to and use of Tatari’s Platform, including any Technology or Services provided by Tatari. In the event of an inconsistency between the Order, these T&Cs, or Tatari’s general Terms of Service (available at www.tatari.tv), the order of precedence shall be: first the Order, then these T&Cs, and then the Terms of Service.
Capitalized Terms. Except as otherwise defined herein or in the Order, Capitalized terms shall have the meanings specified in Section 16.
Platform. During the Term, and subject to all terms and conditions herein, Tatari will provide Company with the Technology and Services (collectively the “Platform”) as specified in the Order. Any new or different components of the Platform or changes to terms of the Agreement such as scope, fees and Term thereof are subject to Tatari’s prior agreement.
Uses & Restrictions
Subject to all terms and conditions herein, Tatari hereby grants Company a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable right and license during the Term to access and use Tatari’s Platform as provided and maintained by Tatari.

Company’s access to and use of the Analytics Platform shall be strictly limited to Company and Company Agents.
Company’s access to and use of the Analytics and Media Platforms shall be solely: (i) as authorized by this Agreement and (ii) in compliance with training, instructions and documentation provided by Tatari. Company will not: (a) reverse engineer or attempt to obtain any source code to the Analytics or Media Platforms; (b) provide any third party with access to the Platform, Tatari Data or Viewership Data except as specifically authorized herein; (c) use Tatari Data or Viewership Data for any purpose except as authorized herein in connection with Company’s use of the Platform; (d) use the Platform or any Tatari or Viewership Data outside the Territory, or in connection with any Ad Creative served to any person or device outside the Territory; (e) use any device or software that damages, interferes with or disrupts the Platform; (f) extract, or attempt to extract, Viewership Data from the Platform; (g) match, or attempt to match, Viewership Data with Personal Information, use Viewership Data or any other information derived from Provider Sites during a campaign to retarget consumer or household profiles, (h) directly or indirectly circumvent any Tatari data security or privacy measure, (i) use Ad Creatives in connection with the Platform that violate the applicable Provider’s publishing restrictions or include content that is illegal, promotes illegal activity or infringes on the legal rights of others, or (j) use the Analytics or Media Platforms or any Service in a manner inconsistent with applicable law, including data security and privacy laws.
Company shall maintain full control of, and be fully responsible and/or liable for, any access to and use of Tatari’s Platform by Company, Company Agents, and any third parties that Company allows to access or use the Platform.
Fees, Expenses & Payments
Fees and Expenses. Tatari will invoice Company, and Company will pay Tatari, fees and expenses as set forth in the Order
Company is solely responsible for the costs of all Authorized Media Purchases. In all cases, and regardless of any time remaining before payment on an invoice (or portion thereof) is due, Tatari’s execution of Authorized Media Purchases is subject to, and limited by, Company’s positive Working Capital balance. Tatari typically executes Authorized Media Purchases on the Tuesday of the week before media airings and therefore typically requires sufficient Working Capital at that point.
The Working Capital provisions and requirements herein shall not apply to Media Purchases solely if and where the Parties have entered a prior written agreement for direct billing of Company by Providers.
If Company directs Tatari to cancel or terminate any previously Authorized Media Purchase, Tatari shall take all appropriate action to do so. To the extent that Providers cannot accommodate such request or Tatari incurs any related expenses, Company agrees to pay and hold Tatari harmless against any un-cancelled Authorized Media Purchases, costs incurred by Tatari as a result of the cancellation, and related Fees.
Reimbursement or credits by Providers for Authorized Media Purchases that were not aired will be returned to Company’s Working Capital account.
Except as otherwise limited by law, Tatari will charge an interest rate of 12% per annum for any invoices or other payments overdue for more than 30 days, and Tatari reserves the right to change this interest rate by up to 2% per year in its sole discretion upon notice to Company. Company will be responsible for any costs incurred by Tatari, including reasonable attorney fees, to recover such overdue amounts.
Company is responsible for all applicable sales, service, business, use, excise, transfer, and similar or other transaction taxes related to the Platform.

Where authorized by Tatari, such outside Media Purchases may, in Tatari’s sole discretion, be considered Authorized Media Purchases subject to Fees as provided in the Order, or excluded from the measurement in Tatari’s Analytics Platform.

Confidentiality. The parties wish to protect and preserve the confidential and/or proprietary nature of information and materials that may be disclosed or made available to each other in connection with the Order and any dealings thereunder or subject to these T&Cs (the “Purpose”). In consideration of the foregoing and the rights and obligations set forth herein, both parties hereby agree as follows:
“Proprietary Information” means any and all information and material disclosed by the disclosing party (“Discloser”) to the receiving party (“Recipient”) (whether in writing, or in oral, graphic, electronic or any other form) that is marked as (or provided under circumstances reasonably indicating it is) confidential or proprietary. Proprietary Information, includes, without limitation, any:
trade secret, know-how, idea, invention, process, technique, algorithm, program (whether in source code or object code form), hardware, device, design, schematic, drawing, formula, data, plan, research, current and future products or services, strategy and forecast, and
technical, engineering, manufacturing, product, marketing, servicing, financial, personnel, customer, business and other information, forecasts, plans, or materials
of Discloser and its employees, consultants, investors, affiliates, licensors, suppliers, vendors, customers, clients and other persons and entities. For the avoidance of doubt, Provider inventory pricing and availability are Proprietary Information.
Non-Disclosure and Limited Use. Recipient shall hold all Proprietary Information in strict confidence and shall not disclose any Proprietary Information to any third party, other than to its employees and Company Agents who need to know such information and who are bound by restrictions regarding disclosure and use of such information comparable to and no less restrictive than those set forth herein. Recipient shall not use any Proprietary Information for the benefit of itself or any third party or for any purpose other than the Purpose. Recipient shall take the same degree of care that it uses to protect its own confidential and proprietary information and materials of similar nature and importance (but in no event less than reasonable care) to protect the confidentiality and avoid the unauthorized use, disclosure, publication or dissemination of the Proprietary Information. Recipient shall not make any copies of the Proprietary Information except to the extent reasonably necessary to carry out the Purpose, or unless otherwise approved in writing in advance by Discloser. Recipient shall not decompile, disassemble or otherwise reverse engineer (except to the extent expressly permitted by applicable law, notwithstanding a contractual obligation to the contrary) any Proprietary Information or any portion thereof, or determine or attempt to determine any source code, algorithms, methods or techniques embodied in any Proprietary Information or any portion thereof. Except as required by law or as reasonably required to assert its rights hereunder, neither party shall disclose the existence or substance of the discussions between the parties or any terms of this Agreement or any related agreement between the parties (or any matters relating thereto), without the prior written consent of the other party. The obligations of this Section 7.2 with respect to any item of Proprietary Information or with respect to any discussions or agreements between the parties shall survive and continue for five (5) years from the date of Recipient’s receipt of such Proprietary Information; provided, however, that the obligations with respect to trade secrets shall survive and continue indefinitely.
For the avoidance of doubt, Company shall maintain full control of, and be fully responsible and/or liable for, any access to or use of Tatari’s Confidential Information by any Company Agents or third parties that Company allows to access or use such information.
Scope. The obligations of this Agreement, including the restrictions on disclosure and use, shall not apply with respect to any Proprietary Information to the extent such Proprietary Information: (a) is or becomes publicly known through no wrongful act or omission of Recipient; (b) was rightfully known by Recipient before receipt from Discloser, as evidenced by Recipient’s contemporaneous written records; (c) becomes rightfully known to Recipient without confidential or proprietary restriction from a source other than Discloser that does not owe a duty of confidentiality to Discloser with respect to such Proprietary Information; or (d) is independently developed by Recipient without the use of or reference to the Proprietary Information of Discloser, as evidenced by Recipient’s contemporaneous written records. In addition, Recipient may use or disclose Proprietary Information to the extent (i) approved by Discloser or (ii) Recipient is legally compelled to disclose such Proprietary Information, provided, however, that prior to any such compelled disclosure, Recipient shall give Discloser reasonable advance notice of any such disclosure and shall cooperate with Discloser in protecting against any such disclosure and/or obtaining a protective order narrowing the scope of such disclosure and/or use of the Proprietary Information. Further, each party may disclose Proprietary Information and the terms and conditions of this Agreement: (A) as required by the applicable securities laws, including, without limitation, requirements to file a copy of this Agreement (redacted to the extent reasonably permitted by applicable law) or to disclose information regarding the provisions hereof or performance hereunder to applicable regulatory authorities; (B) in confidence, to legal counsel; (C) in confidence, to accountants, banks, investors, potential investors, financing sources, potential financing sources and their respective advisors; and (D) in connection with the enforcement of this Agreement or any rights hereunder.
Ownership. All Proprietary Information of Discloser (including, without limitation, all copies, extracts and portions thereof) is and shall remain the sole property of Discloser. Recipient does not acquire (by license or otherwise, whether express or implied) any intellectual property rights or other rights under this Agreement or any disclosure hereunder, except the limited right to use such Proprietary Information in accordance with the express provisions of this Agreement. All rights relating to the Proprietary Information that are not expressly granted hereunder to Recipient are reserved and retained by Discloser.
No Warranty. Except as may be otherwise agreed to in writing, no warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, are given by Discloser with respect to any Proprietary Information or any use thereof, and the Proprietary Information is provided on an “AS IS” basis. Discloser hereby expressly disclaims all such warranties, including any implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose and any warranties arising out of course of performance, course of dealing or usage of trade.
Remedies. Recipient agrees that, due to the unique nature of the Proprietary Information, the unauthorized disclosure or use of the Proprietary Information of Discloser will cause irreparable harm and significant injury to Discloser, the extent of which will be difficult to ascertain and for which there will be no adequate remedy at law. Accordingly, Recipient agrees that Discloser, in addition to any other available remedies, shall have the right to seek an immediate injunction and other equitable relief enjoining any breach or threatened breach of this Agreement without the necessity of posting any bond or other security. Recipient shall notify Discloser in writing immediately upon Recipient’s becoming aware of any such breach or threatened breach.
Return of Materials. Upon Discloser’s request, (a) Recipient shall promptly return to Discloser or destroy all materials (in written, electronic or other form) constituting Proprietary Information of Discloser, including any copies and extracts thereof, and (b) Recipient shall not use such Proprietary Information in any way for any purpose. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Recipient shall be permitted to retain (subject to compliance with the terms herein) such Proprietary Information as may be required to comply with law, applicable professional obligations and standards, and internal policies. For the avoidance of doubt, anything that is stored on routine back-up media for the purpose of disaster recovery will be subject to destruction in due course, and nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to require either party to search or retrieve information from its back-up tapes or other archives. Additionally, latent data such as deleted files and other non-logical data types, such as memory dumps, swap files, temporary files, printer spool files and metadata that can customarily only be retrieved by computer forensics experts and are generally considered inaccessible without the use of specialized tools and techniques will not be within the requirement for return or destruction of Proprietary Information as set forth by this paragraph.
Neither Party will issue a press release without the other’s prior consent. Tatari may make incidental reference to Company use of its Platform in Tatari publicity, and Tatari may include Company’s name and logo (as a client of Tatari) in its advertising materials.
Tatari has the right to publish a case study, subject to Company’s approval, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld.
