YOU MAY PRINT AND KEEP A COPY OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS. YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS DOES NOT OBLIGATE INNUITY, INC. ("PUBLISHER") TO PUBLISH ANY ADVERTISING. PUBLISHER MAY REJECT YOUR APPLICATION, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, FOR ANY REASON.
SECTION 1 - APPLICATION FOR ADVERTISING
By my submission of my online order and acceptance of these terms and conditions by clicking "Place Order,", I am requesting Publisher to publish advertising ("Electronic Advertising") in services published on various electronic media, including, without limitation, Publisher's website ("Electronic Directory" or "Directory"). Electronic Advertising also includes websites or other items identified on this Application, whether or not linked to the Electronic Directory. The "Date of the Application" is the date I clicked to place the order for these terms and conditions and submitted my order in connection with these terms and conditions (or, if these events occurred on two different dates, the later of the two dates). The "Application" consists of my order together with these terms and conditions. "I" or "Advertiser" means the person who is the subject of the advertising described in this Application or a representative thereof. I may be an individual, corporation or other entity or organization.
SECTION 2 - PUBLISHER NOT BOUND TO PUBLISH
I understand that this Application is not an agreement by Publisher to publish my advertising and Publisher may choose not to publish my advertising. Publisher may also choose not to publish any Directory or portions thereof. I understand that Publisher will be bound by this Application only if and when Publisher publishes my advertising, and that such publication will evidence Publisher's agreement to publish my advertising on the terms set forth in this Application (but only as to the advertising published, and not as to any advertising listed on this Application but not published or as to advertising in succeeding submissions that is not published). If Publisher does not publish my advertising in at least one location, it will refund any money I previously paid for the advertising and will have no further obligation to me, and I will have no further obligation to Publisher.
SECTION 3 - PAYMENT FOR ADVERTISING
(a) Late Charges. In the event of non-credit card billing, I will pay all bills for advertising in full, without setoff, by the due date on the bill. Interest will accrue on all amounts not paid by the due date on the bill at a rate of interest equal to the lesser of (i) 18% per annum, or (ii) the highest applicable lawful rate of interest. In addition, if I do not pay any bill within 30 days of the due date on the bill, Publisher may require me to pay immediately all unpaid amounts I owe and will owe for all of my advertising in all Directories for the entire remainder of the term with regard to any Electronic Directories. Publisher may require me to pay any collection costs and attorney's fees incurred by Publisher. Publisher also may remove my advertising from any Electronic Directory that has not been published.
(b) Credit Approval. I authorize Publisher to contact from time to time such third parties as Publisher may deem appropriate (including without limitation, any of Advertiser's banks, creditors and any credit reporting agency) for the purpose of verifying any information provided by Advertiser in connection with this Application and obtaining credit information regarding Advertiser.
(c) Restrictive Covenants and Conditional Endorsements. The acceptance of any payment or instrument marked with any restrictive covenant or other limited or conditional endorsement will not be deemed a waiver of any of Publisher's rights under this Application.
(d) Billing Party. Bills for advertising may be submitted by Publisher, by an Affiliate of Publisher, or by an unrelated party. I understand my obligations to Publisher, as they may arise throughout the period covered by this Application, will not be enlarged or reduced as a result of any act, or failure to act, by Publisher with respect to billing or by any other billing party pursuant to the terms of its agreement with Publisher pertaining to the submission of bills on behalf of Publisher.
(e) Payment by Credit Card. If I am paying with a credit card, if there are any annual, monthly, or similar periodic charges for any advertising, the charges for such advertising will be billed automatically to my credit card at the start of the annual, monthly, or similar periods. All charges for advertising to be paid by credit card will be billed to the credit card designated during the application process for such advertising. If I wish to designate a different credit card, or if there is a change in the availability or expiration date of the designated credit card, or if I believe someone has accessed Publisher's web site using my user name and password, I must call Publisher at the telephone number posted in the "Contact Us" section of Publisher's LeadConnect.Innuity.com web site. All advertising payments are non-refundable except as expressly set forth herein. Advertiser, and not Publisher, is responsible for paying any amounts billed to Advertiser's credit card by a third party, which were not authorized by Advertiser.
SECTION 4 - ADVERTISING CONTENT
(a) Advertising Copy. "Advertising Copy" means all Advertiser Copy (hereinafter defined) and other content that I provide to Publisher or that is otherwise included in my on-line business profile, including without limitation content that I authorize or request Publisher to include, or that is submitted on-line by me or any person(s) using my password(s) ("Password User(s)"). Publisher has the right to approve the content, form, size, wording, typography and illustrations of the Advertising Copy. Publisher may change each name, street address, Internet address and telephone number(s) or any other content in the Advertising Copy to conform to Publisher's standards, practices and policies or to the policies of InterNIC and any third parties upon whose site or network the Advertising Copy may be published by or through Publisher.
(b) Right to Use Advertiser Copy. I represent and warrant that I have the absolute and unrestricted right and authority to use, publish, reproduce, distribute, display publicly, promote, perform, resize, rearrange, modify and create derivative works from any and all content, including all text, graphics, illustrations, symbols, logos, names, addresses, trade names, trademarks, service marks, pictures, photographs or other likenesses of persons (including minor persons), and endorsements provided by me or by a third party on my behalf ("Advertiser Copy") in any medium and in (or in connection with) any listing or advertisement published under this Application in the way it is used in any such listing or advertisement (or in connection with such listing or advertisement) without the consent or authorization of any other person or entity. I also represent and warrant that (i) I have the right to provide the Advertiser Copy to Publisher and the right and authority to grant Publisher the additional rights afforded by these terms and conditions (including without limitation Sections 4(f) and 40(b) below) without the consent or authorization of any other person or entity; and (ii) the exercise of any such rights, licenses, or authorizations by Publisher or its sub-licensees will not infringe any copyright or other intellectual property right or right of publicity or privacy rights of any other person or entity. If my right and authority to use any Advertiser Copy, or any portion of any Advertiser Copy, changes or any proceedings contesting that right and authority are initiated, I will notify Publisher promptly in writing. I agree that I am solely responsible for the enforcement and protection of any of my intellectual property included in (or in connection with) my advertising.

I represent and warrant that (i) the statements contained in the Advertising Copy are truthful and not misleading; (ii) I am authorized to provide the services and products advertised; (iii) the Advertising Copy complies with all applicable laws and regulations; (iv) I have all of the applicable licenses and permits required to provide the goods and services I am advertising (or offering or selling in connection with my Electronic Advertising) in all of the geographic areas covered by the Directory and to advertise under all of the headings under which I am seeking to place my advertising; and (v) I will notify Publisher immediately if I become aware of any facts or circumstances indicating that any of my representations in this Section are, or become, untrue.
(d) Publisher's Rights in Advertising Copy. If Publisher creates or supplies any Advertising Copy for me, I agree that: (i) I am responsible for the content, but that Publisher retains all rights in and/or ownership of any such Advertising Copy and I will not have any right therein except as expressly set forth in this Application; (ii) Publisher reserves the right to supply such Advertising Copy to other advertisers; (iii) I have no right to use advertising developed with content created or supplied by Publisher except in connection with this Application; and (iv) I will not have the right to allow others to use such advertising or any such content. I waive any and all rights of attribution and integrity and other statutory and common law rights of every kind relating to any Advertising Copy. It is my responsibility to review and request changes to any Advertising Copy created or supplied by Publisher.
(e) Appearance. I acknowledge that my published advertising may be of a lower quality or otherwise differ from the original Advertiser Copy or from electronic representations supplied by Publisher in clarity, color, contrast, focus, size and other features. Publisher has advised me against the use of Advertiser Copy that is unclear, low contrast or otherwise substandard, and I release Publisher from any liability for advertising of inferior quality produced from substandard Advertiser Copy. I acknowledge that the size, color, font, highlighting and arrangement of listing items in Electronic Advertising may be adjusted from that appearing in any sales collateral or copy sheet and from web page to web page, and that the associated listing's enhancements may be omitted (e.g., the listing may appear as a basic listing) as a result of a distribution affiliate's or user's applicable hardware, software or system limitations or browser settings or the manner in which the listing is transferred to any third party prior to its display to the user.
(f) Multi-Media Distribution. I grant Publisher the absolute, non-exclusive, irrevocable, royalty-free, unrestricted right, license and authority to: (i) use, reproduce, publish, publicly perform, display, distribute and prepare derivative works based upon any Advertising Copy, and any changes thereto that I or my Password Users or other agents provide to Publisher hereunder, or that Publisher or its agents may otherwise develop or use hereunder, in whole or in part, in such manner, format, and media as Publisher may deem appropriate and for such purposes as it may see fit, subject to applicable law (including without limitation, microfiche, CD-ROM, print and Internet-based information services owned or operated by Publisher, or which are otherwise powered by any such information service, and during the term of this Application and for as long as any such materials remain in circulation), which right, license and authority will be perpetual as to any business name, address, phone number and other basic listing information included in any Advertising Copy; and (ii) grant third parties the right, sublicense and authority to exercise all or any portion of the rights afforded Publisher in this Section 4, and to further sublicense these rights, subject to such terms and conditions as Publisher may deem appropriate. Publisher, its sub-licensees, and their sub-licensees may use any means of communications or transmission in their exercise of any of the rights and licenses granted above, without limitation.
(g) Advertiser's Obligation to Verify Information. I understand that it is my obligation to verify that the information provided to Publisher on this Application correctly matches the information on file with my telephone company relating to my business telephone service account by contacting the local customer service department of my telephone company.
(h) Advertising Including Information on Pricing and Promotions. I agree that, in addition to otherwise complying with all policies, specifications and standards issued by Publisher with respect to pricing and/or discount percentage advertising, I will honor the prices or discount percentages quoted in my Electronic Advertising (and on-line changes thereto) until it is removed from the Electronic Directory or until a published expiration date, whichever occurs first. Advertisers are encouraged to include expiration dates in any advertising that includes this type of information.
SECTION 5 - LOCATION OF ADVERTISEMENTS AND HEADINGS
I understand that:
- Publisher will determine all headings that will appear in the Directory and has the right to approve or reject my selection of a heading.
- Publisher does not guarantee that my advertising, or the advertising of any other advertiser, will appear under a specific heading or position within a heading in any Electronic Directory.
- Publisher does not guarantee that my advertising, or the advertising of any other advertiser, will appear at any specific place, position, or location on the electronic directory page(s) or directory listings for the world wide web ("www"), or at a specific url address on the internet, or at a specific location within any other Electronic Directory, or that the url or keywords of any advertising will be placed with any particular search engine.
- Headings are included for the user's convenience, and Publisher does not warrant or guarantee that each advertiser under a given heading provides the service or product described in that heading or conforms to all applicable legal or regulatory requirements for providing that product or service.
- Publisher's policies, practices, and procedures regarding the placement, position, or location of advertisements and headings are solely for Publisher's internal business purposes, and Publisher will not be liable to me for any deviation from such policies, practices, or procedures.
SECTION 6 - LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
I understand that, except for my obligations to pay Publisher's damages under Section 10 and any additional obligations in any addendum hereto: (1) the total amount of damages that Publisher may recover from me related to this Application will not exceed the sum of the charges owed for the items of advertising at issue, plus late charges and other costs payable under Section 3; and (2) Publisher agrees to waive any claim for damages to the extent such damages exceed this amount. I agree: (1) that the total amount of damages that I may recover from Publisher related to this Application will not exceed the lesser of (a) the amount (as determined by Publisher) by which the value of the item of advertising at issue was decreased or (b) the sum of the charges I have paid for the items of advertising at issue (the lesser amount being referred to as the "Liability Cap"); and (2) to waive any claim for damages to the extent such damages exceed the Liability Cap. Publisher will have no liability for any error, omission, or default with regard to items for which no charge is assessed. The limitation of liability in this Section 6 will apply to the full extent permitted by law. Further, it will apply to any claim that I may have against Publisher, any Affiliate or agent of Publisher, any party that provides fulfillment or other services related to this Application, or any "Third Party Distribution Contractors." "Affiliate" means Innuity, Inc., any of its subsidiaries and/or any of its affiliates. "Third Party Distribution Contractors" means third parties for whom Publisher provides a co-branded or private-label directory or through whom Publisher otherwise provides its directory services. The claims covered by this limitation of liability include, but are not limited to: any claims based on contract violations, torts (such as negligence or strict liability) or any other legal or equitable ground; any claims for lost business revenues, profits or the cost of other forms of advertising; any claims based on any error or omission in my advertising; and any claims based on inaccessibility, interruptions, delays, defects, deletion of files or email, viruses or any failure of performance of Publisher.
In no event will Publisher, any Affiliate or agent of Publisher, or any Third Party Distribution Contractor, be required to correct, or to give any special notice regarding, any error or omission in any Directory.
If I do not desire to be bound by the Liability Cap, I understand that I can increase the Liability Cap with regard to paid advertising by agreeing to pay additional charges, which will be determined by mutual agreement between me and Publisher. If Publisher and I agree to, and I pay, these charges, the Liability Cap described herein will not apply, but I will be bound by the higher Liability Cap that I agree to with Publisher. Advertisers interested in obtaining additional information should contact Publisher's Customer Service Office at (866) 814-4080.
SECTION 7 - WHEN I MUST BRING ANY CLAIMS
Advertiser and Publisher agree that they have a mutual interest in resolving any disputes promptly. Therefore, if I believe I have a claim against Publisher, any Affiliate or agent of Publisher, or any Third Party Distribution Contractor, related to any Directory, I must make my claim within one year of the Date of the Application for the advertisement which is the subject of my claim. I agree that this provision applies to any claims I may have against the Publisher or any Affiliate or agent of Publisher or any Third Party Distribution Contractor related to my advertising, including any claim based on any error or omission in any advertisement. All claims against the Publisher or any Affiliate or agent of Publisher or any Third Party Distribution Contractor must be in writing and must be mailed to Publisher at Innuity, Inc., 8644 154th Ave NE, Redmond, WA 98052, or faxed to Publisher at (425) 497-0409 before expiration of the periods referenced above.
SECTION 8 - ARBITRATION; ATTORNEY'S FEES
Publisher may bring an action in court to collect amounts due under Sections 3 (Payment for Advertising) and 26 (Amount of Payment) of this Application, and I may bring an action in court to recover amounts I have paid under this Application. In such actions, trial will be in a court of competent jurisdiction, and Publisher and I each waive any trial by jury. All other disputes between myself and Publisher and/or any of Publisher's officers, directors, employees or Affiliates, which cannot be settled by amicable agreement concerning or arising from or in connection with (i) this Application, (ii) the construction, performance or breach of these terms and conditions and any modifications thereof, (iii) any transactions between myself and Publisher, including but not limited to any accounts I maintain with Publisher, any advertising that Publisher publishes or does not publish for me and any statements that I or Publisher make to one another in connection with our transactions, or (iv) any issues as to whether a dispute is to be arbitrated between us, whether such disputes arose prior to, on or subsequent to the Date of the Application, will be referred by the aggrieved party to arbitration under the rules of the American Arbitration Association, and such party will give written notice of arbitration to the other.

Publisher and I acknowledge that Advertiser's use of Publisher's services evidences a transaction in interstate commerce and that the United States Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law will govern the interpretation, enforcement, and proceedings pursuant to this Section 8. In furtherance of our agreement to arbitrate, Publisher and I agree that the arbitrator will only have authority over claims between us, and will have no authority over claims of or on behalf of other persons, and we waive any right we may have to participate in any class, group or representative actions or arbitrations. Publisher and I also agree that the arbitrator may not award multiple or punitive damages, except as may be required by law. If the law requires that a claim only be brought in court, Publisher and Advertiser agree to arbitrate any related claims before proceeding in court, and further agree to waive any right to participate in any class actions and any trial by jury. Publisher and I agree that if this arbitration provision is invalid under applicable law with respect to any claim, then in any litigation which arises out of or concerns this Application, trial will be in a court of competent jurisdiction, but only after we have completed arbitration of all related claims. If it becomes necessary for one party to commence any arbitration, litigation, or collection action against the other, the prevailing party in such action will be entitled to recover all costs, including reasonable attorneys' fees, except witness fees and in-house counsel costs associated with the action.
SECTION 9 - DISCONNECTION OF ADVERTISER'S PHONE NUMBER
The change or disconnection of a phone number or Internet address or the sale of the assets or business described in my advertising does not release me from any of my obligations herein. However, if prior to any failure on my part (i) to pay any amount when due or (ii) to comply with any other obligation that exists or may arise under this Application, I provide proof to the satisfaction of Publisher (1) that no phone number, street address or Internet address identified, referred to or used in any way in connection with my advertising (and of all successors, assigns and parties affiliated with, or related to, me) continues to be used in connection with the business or its assets; (2) that the business (and any successor, affiliated or related business) to which my advertising relates (or may relate) has ceased operation and has not and will not be reestablished during the circulation period of the applicable Directory or Directories; and (3) that neither I nor any successors, assigns or parties affiliated with, or related to, me will receive, directly or indirectly, any further benefit from the advertising, then I will no longer be obligated to Publisher for any additional charges for which I would otherwise become obligated beginning with the month following the month in which Publisher accepts my proof as satisfactory, however Publisher will not refund any amounts previously paid for advertising.

I hereby waive all claims or defenses, known or unknown, now existing or hereafter arising, which are inconsistent with the foregoing acknowledgements, including without limitation, any claims and defenses that any Password User(s) lacked proper authority to bind me, or were otherwise acting outside the scope of its authority. Publisher may revoke my password or deny me or any Password User access to any back office functionality, in whole or in part (including without limitation the website edit tool) at any time in Publisher's reasonable discretion. I acknowledge that the server space upon which Electronic Advertising is hosted, and the Internet connections through which any transactions conducted in connection with e-commerce enabled advertising, will be unsecure, unless otherwise indicated by Publisher in writing.
SECTION 33 - DOMAIN NAMES
I authorize Publisher to host any website Electronic Advertising requested under this Application at any extension or subdomain of any of Publishers' Internet domains which Publisher deems appropriate (e.g. http://www.sitename.com/ [advertiser].htm). I understand that I may only use any such extension or subdomain name for the limited purpose of promoting my Electronic Advertising during the term of this Application, or for so long as Publisher may use it in the hosting of the website, whichever is earlier. At my request, Publisher may, but is not required to, assist me in obtaining and/or managing a custom domain name to use in connection with the Electronic Advertising subject to this Application (e.g. www.[advertiser].com). Publisher may, but will have no obligation to, assume the administrative responsibilities, in whole or in part, of any such custom domain name(s). I acknowledge that I am solely responsible, however, for conducting any trademark searches and other similar activities which may be necessary or appropriate in relation to the selection, evaluation and appropriateness of any custom domain name(s) which I may request Publisher to assist me in registering, and that Publisher will have no liability or obligation to me whatsoever in the event of any third party claims against me relating to the registration and/or use of any such custom domain name(s). I agree to pay any and all charges imposed by the domain name registrar in connection with the registration or renewal of custom domain names. Domain name registrations are not perpetual, but must be renewed periodically. Publisher may cancel or refrain from renewing any domain name(s) used in connection with any Electronic Advertising under this Application and will have no obligation to pay any registration renewal fees in the event that: (1) I do not pay Publisher for the Electronic Advertising in a timely manner, (2) I do not renew the Electronic Advertising upon the expiration of this Application, or (3) I do not affirmatively notify Publisher in writing of my desire to either cancel or renew the domain name upon the expiration of the initial domain registration or any subsequent renewal thereof. Upon my written request to Publisher at Innuity, Inc., 8644 154th Ave NE, Redmond, WA 98052, or faxed to Publisher at (425) 497-0409, with a copy via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, Publisher will make a commercially reasonable effort to change all or any portion of the administrative contact information (i.e. address, telephone number and/or email address) in accordance with such request. In the absence of any such written request, Publisher may change any of the contact information to information previously provided to Publisher, and may delete any contact information relating to Publisher. I waive any and all claims that I may have, or which may later arise, known or unknown against Publisher, for any loss, damage, claim or expense arising out of, or related to, the acquisition, evaluation, registration, administration, or use of any custom domain name(s) used in connection with the Electronic Advertising hereunder. I further covenant and agree that I will not include or reference any domain name(s) or URL(s) associated with Electronic Advertising provided under this Application in any email that: (a) violates any applicable law or regulation, (b) violates any operating rule, policy or guideline of any on-line service provider or interactive service, including any of Publisher's rules, policies or guidelines, or (c) which constitutes "Spam," "junk mail," "flaming," "chain mail" or any unsolicited mass distribution of email.
SECTION 34 - PAYMENT PROCESSING
I acknowledge and agree that Publisher has no obligation to provide on-line or off-line payment processing services (including, without limitation, credit card or alternate payment processing services) under this Application, or to otherwise integrate any third party payment processing services with any Electronic Advertising provided hereunder. Any request by me (or any third party, including a payment processing company, on my behalf) to integrate any third party payment processing service with any Electronic Advertising (a) will be binding on Publisher only if and when Publisher (or such third party as Publisher may designate) performs such integration services, and (b) constitutes my authorization for Publisher (and any third party contractor of Publisher) to take any and all steps that Publisher deems necessary for the use of such payment processing service in connection with any Electronic Advertising, including without limitation, steps to link or otherwise connect my Electronic Advertising with my merchant account or similar account with the payment processor, financial institution, and/or any other third party designated by or on behalf of Advertiser. In the event that Publisher (or such third party as Publisher may designate) performs such integration services, I agree to execute such additional agreement(s) as Publisher or the third party payment processing service may request (which, in the case of the latter, I acknowledge would be solely between me and third party(ies)), and I acknowledge that I will be solely responsible for the payment of any and all amounts payable to such third party(ies), which will be in addition to any charges payable to Publisher under this Application. I further acknowledge and agree that Publisher makes no warranties, and that neither Publisher nor its contractors will have any liability to me whatsoever, with respect to any payment processing services provided by any third party or any transactions attempted or completed through my Electronic Advertising, and I waive and release Publisher and its contractors from any and all claims related thereto. I further agree that Publisher makes no warranties, and that neither Publisher nor its contractors will have any liability to me whatsoever, with respect to any taxes (or tax rates) or shipping and handling charges or calculations applicable to or provided in connection with any transaction through any Electronic Advertising, and I waive and release Publisher and its contractors from any and all claims related thereto. I acknowledge that I have or will promptly seek advice from a professional tax advisor regarding tax rates applicable to transactions through my Electronic Advertising and any transaction capability that may be contemplated for my Electronic Advertising. I covenant and agree that I will not violate any federal, state or local laws, regulations, statutes or ordinances of any kind in connection with any payment processing services provided hereunder (including without limitation any transactions attempted or completed through the Electronic Advertising).
SECTION 35 - ADDITIONAL DISCLAIMERS
Without limiting the general disclaimers in Section 20 above, Publisher also does not warrant the following:
- Publisher does not warrant that my advertising will be published or withdrawn on a particular day;
- Publisher does not warrant that a specific number of persons will access or download the Directory, any portion of the Directory, any heading or any advertising (and does not otherwise warrant the effectiveness of any Electronic Advertising or any service ancillary thereto);

SECTION 36 - EXPORT COMPLIANCE
Advertiser will comply with all applicable export laws, and will and does hereby agree to indemnify, defend and hold Publisher, its Affiliates, any party that provides fulfillment or other services related to this Application, and any Third Party Distribution Contractors (and their respective officers, directors, employees, successors and assigns) against any and all claims, demands, causes of action, damages, costs, expenses, penalties, losses and liabilities incurred or to be incurred by any such party (including but not limited to costs of defense, investigation and reasonable attorneys' and other third party fees and, to the extent permitted by law, fines, penalties and forfeitures in connection with any proceedings against any such party) arising out of, resulting from or related to any breach of such obligation. Advertiser represents and warrants that it is not a prohibited entity on any governmental export control list, and will notify Publisher immediately in the event that it is placed on any export control list. Advertiser acknowledges and agrees that (a) Publisher is not a party to any transactions through my advertising and is not responsible for, and will have no liability for, compliance with export control laws in relation to any such transactions, and (b) Advertiser is solely responsible for obtaining legal advice with respect to such matters.
SECTION 37 - NO SPAM POLICY
I will not use my Electronic Advertising for the sending of single or bulk unsolicited commercial advertising, unsolicited commercial email, information announcements, or other unrelated messages commonly considered to be "Spam." Publisher may, at its sole discretion, use various approaches to detect, manage, and eliminate Spam from my Electronic Advertising. These approaches include, without limitation, automated and manual monitoring of all requests entered through my Electronic Advertising.
