Bookings and Financial Terms
Bookings and Financial Terms for Sellers
If you are a Seller and a booking is requested for your Posting via the Site, Application and Services, you will be required to either confirm or reject the booking within 4 Days (96 hours) of when the booking is requested (as determined by Adset in its sole discretion) or the booking request will be automatically cancelled. When a booking is requested via the Site, Application and Services, we will share with you (i) username of the Buyer who has requested the booking, (ii) a link to the Buyer’s Adset Account profile page. If you are unable to confirm or decide to reject a booking for a request within such 3 day period, the whole booking will get cancelled. Adset won’t collect any money or fund until the booking is accepted by the Seller. When you confirm a booking requested by a Buyer, Adset will send you an email or notification via the Application confirming such booking, depending on the selections you make via the Site, Application and Services. Once the Seller accept the booking, Adset will hold the money for the Seller on behalf of the Buyer.
The amount displayed in each Posting is comprised of service fee, selling price (defined below) and buying price (defined below.) Where applicable, Taxes may be charged in addition to the Selling price and Buying Price. The Selling price, Buying price, Adset Service fee and applicable Taxes are collectively referred to in these Terms as the “Total Fees”. The amounts due and payable by a Buyer solely relating to a Sellers Postings are the “Buying price”. Please note that it is the Seller and not Adset which determines the Buying price. The Buying price may include a Security deposit, at the Seller’s discretion.
Adset charges a fee to Buyers based upon a percentage of applicable Selling price which are the “Service fee”. The Service fees are added to the Selling price to calculate the Total Fees (which will also include applicable Taxes) displayed in the applicable Posting. Adset will collect the Total Fees at the time of booking approval (i.e. when the Seller confirms the booking within 4 days of the booking request) and will initiate payment of the Selling price.
Appointment of Adset as Payment Agent for Buyer
Each Seller hereby appoints Adset as the Seller’s limited agent solely for the purpose of collecting payments made by Buyers on behalf of the Seller. Each Seller agrees that payment made by a Buyer to Adset shall be considered the same as a payment made directly to the Seller and the Seller will make the Advertisement available to Buyer in the agreed upon manner as if the Seller has received the Seller price. Each Seller agrees that, Adset may, in accordance with the cancellation policy selected by the Seller and reflected in the relevant Posting, (i) permit the Buyer to cancel the booking and (ii) refund to the Buyer that portion of the Cancellation Fees specified in the applicable cancellation policy. In accepting appointment as the limited authorized agent of the Seller, Adset assumes no liability for any acts or omissions of the Seller.
Please note that Adset does not currently charge fees for the creation of Postings. However, you acknowledge and agree that Adset reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to charge you for and collect fees from you for the creation of Postings. Please note that Adset will provide notice of any Posting fee collection via the Site, Application and Services, prior to implementing such a Posting fee feature.
Bookings and Financial Terms for Buyers
The Seller, not Adset, are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed bookings and making available any Postings reserved through the Site, Application and Services. If you, as a Buyer, choose to enter into a transaction with a Seller for the booking of a Posting, you agree and understand that you will be required to enter into an agreement with the Seller and you agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules and restrictions associated with such Posting imposed by the Seller. You acknowledge and agree that you, and not Adset, will be responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements, that Adset is not a party to such agreements, and that, with the exception of its payment obligations here under, Adset disclaims all liability arising from or related to any such agreements. You acknowledge and agree that, notwithstanding the fact that Adset is not a party to the agreement between you and the Seller, Adset acts as the Seller’s payment agent for the limited purpose of accepting payments from you on behalf of the Seller. Upon your payment of amounts to Adset which are due to the Seller, your payment obligation to the Seller for such amounts is extinguished, and Adset is responsible for remitting such amounts, less Adset’s Service fee, to the Seller. In the event that Adset does not remit any such amounts to a Seller, such Seller will have recourse only against Adset.
As noted above, the Seller is required to either confirm or reject the booking within 4 Days of when the booking is requested (as determined by Adset in its sole discretion) or the requested booking will be automatically cancelled. If a requested booking is cancelled (i.e. not confirmed by the applicable Seller), any amounts collected by Adset will be refunded to such Buyer, depending on the selections the Buyer makes via the Site and Application, and any pre-authorization of such Buyer’s credit card will be released, if applicable.
You agree to pay Adset for the Total Fees for any booking requested in connection with your Adset Account if such requested bookings are confirmed by the applicable Seller. In order to establish a booking pending the applicable Sellers confirmation of your requested booking, you understand and agree that Adset, on behalf of the Seller, reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to (i) obtain a pre-authorization via your credit card for the Total Fees or (ii) charge your credit card a nominal amount, not to exceed one dollar ($1), or a similar sum in the currency in which you are transacting ( e.g. one euro or one British pound) to verify your credit card. Once Adset receives confirmation of your booking from the applicable Seller, Adset will collect the Total Fees in accordance with the terms and conditions of these Terms and the pricing terms set forth in the applicable Posting. Please note that Adset cannot control any fees that may be charged to a Buyer by his or her bank related to Adset’s collection of the Total Fees, and Adset disclaims all liability in this regard.
Sellers may choose to include security deposits in their Postings (“Security Deposits”). Each Posting will describe whether a Security Deposit is required for the applicable Ad space. If a Security Deposit is included in a Posting for a confirmed booking of Ad space, Adset will, in its capacity as the payment agent of the Seller, use its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain a pre-authorization of the Buyer’s credit card in the amount the Seller determines for the Security Deposit within a reasonable time prior to the Buyer putting up their advertisement at the Sellers Posting location and start the campaign at the applicable Seller’s Ad space. Adset will also use its commercially reasonable efforts to address Sellers’ requests and claims related to Security Deposits, but Adset is not responsible for administering or accepting any claims by Sellers related to Security Deposits, and disclaims any and all liability in this regard.
In consideration for providing the Services, Adset collects service fees from Buyers and Sellers (“Service Fees”). Service Fees are made up of two (2) components: (i) Buyer Fees and (ii) Seller Fees. The service fees are the percentage paid to Adset by the Buyer and Seller based on the agreed price. Taxes may also be charged in addition to the Service Fees. These Service fees are deducted from the Buyer and Seller when the booking amount is cleared by Adset. Please note that for any payments by Adset in currencies other than Canadian dollars, Adset may deduct foreign currency processing costs from such payments. More information on foreign currency processing cost deductions will be available via the Site and Application. Except as otherwise provided herein, Service Fees are non-refundable.
General Booking and Financial Terms
Cancellations and Refunds
If, as a Buyer, you cancel your booking before the booking is confirmed by a Seller, Adset will cancel any pre-authorization to your credit card and/or refund any nominal amounts charged to your credit card in connection with the requested booking within a commercially reasonable time. If, as a Buyer, you wish to cancel a confirmed booking made via the Site, Application and Services, either prior to or after posting, the cancellation policy of the Seller contained in the applicable Posting will apply to such cancellation. Our ability to refund the Ad space price and other amounts charged to you will depend upon the terms of the applicable cancellation policy. Details regarding refunds and cancellation policies are available via the Site and Application.
If a Seller cancels a confirmed booking made via the Site, Services, and Application, (i) Adset will refund the Total Fees for such booking to the applicable Buyer within a commercially reasonable time of the cancellation and (ii) the Buyer will receive an email regarding the cancellation. If a Seller cancelled a confirmed booking and you, as a Buyer, have not received an email or other communication from Adset, please contact Adset at http://www.adset.com/contactus.
CRA regulation, regarding federal tax reporting requirements, stipulates that Adset must collect CRA Form W-9 from all property owners in the Canada. You understand and agree that you are solely responsible for determining your applicable Tax reporting requirements in consultation with your tax advisors. Adset cannot and does not offer Tax-related advice to any Members of the Site, Application and Services. Additionally, please note that each Seller is responsible for determining local indirect Taxes and for including any applicable Taxes to be collected or obligations relating to applicable Taxes in Listings. Where applicable, or based upon request from a Seller, Adset may issue a valid invoice to such Seller.
As part of the Services, Adset provides a feature through which Members may view Total Fees for various Listings in foreign currencies. You understand and agree that these views of Total Fees are for informational purposes only and are not the official Total Fees for the Listings. If you (as a Buyer) request a booking, you will be notified of the currency in which you will be charged together with the corresponding amount of Total Fees, if your booking is confirmed by a Seller. The currency in which you will be charged will be determined by Adset based on the payment method you select and the location of the Ad space you are booking. If the currency in which you will be charged is different from the currency chosen by the Seller to receive payment, Adset won’t be responsible for the required currency conversion processing, including the costs thereof, which will be calculated based on the most current applicable foreign exchange rate that Adset has uploaded to the Site as of the date and time that your booking is confirmed (the “Applicable Exchange Rate”). You acknowledge that the Applicable Exchange Rate used for currency conversion processing may not be identical to the applicable market rate in effect at the specific time such processing occurs because: (i) although Adset updates the Applicable Exchange Rate on a regular basis, it does not update such rate on a real-time basis; and (ii) the Applicable Exchange Rate may include an incremental cost or margin that is not included in the applicable market rate. For the avoidance of doubt, Adset will retain any profits (and will bear any losses) that result from such currency conversion processing due to changes in the applicable foreign exchange rate between the date your booking is confirmed and the date Adset makes payment to a Seller.
End of the Campaign
As a Buyer, you are responsible for removing the Advertisement from the ad space at the end of the determined advertising period. If the advertisement hasn’t been removed by the agreed upon day, it is the Sellers responsibility to request the buyer to remove their advertisement. Both Buyers and Sellers agree to cooperate with and assist Adset in good faith, and to provide Adset with any kind of information and take actions as may be reasonably requested by Adset, in connection with any complaints or claims made by Members relating to Advertisements or Ad spaces or with respect to any investigation undertaken by Adset or a representative of Adset regarding use or abuse of the Site, Application or the Services. If you are a Buyer, upon Adset’s reasonable request, and to the extent you are reasonably able to do so, you agree to participate in mediation or similar resolution process with a Seller, at no cost to you, which process will be conducted by Adset or a third party selected by Adset, with respect to losses for which the Seller is requesting payment.
Adset will not be responsible for any damage or loss that you may have caused or been responsible for to an Advertisement or any personal or other property located at an Advertisement (including amounts paid by Adset under the Adset Seller Guarantee.).

Controlling Law and Jurisdiction
These Terms will be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the Province of Ontario and Canada, without regard to its conflict-of-law provisions. You and we agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of a Provincial court located in Toronto County, San Francisco, California or a United States District Court, Northern District of California located in San Francisco, California for any actions for which the parties retain the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights, as set forth in the Dispute Resolution provision below.
You and Adset agree that any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, or to the use of the Services or use of the Site or Application (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration , except that each party retains the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and Adset are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action or representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Adset otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these Terms.
Arbitration Rules and Governing Law. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. (The AAA Rules are available at http://www.adr.org/arb_med or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.) The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this section.
Arbitration Process. A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration at http://www.adr.org/aaa/ShowPDF?doc=ADRSTG_004175 and a separate form for California residents at http://adr.org/aaa/ShowPDF?doc=ADRSTG_004314.) The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of California and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within seven (7) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.
Arbitration Location and Procedure. Unless you and Adset otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Adset submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.
Arbitrator’s Decision. The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses, to the extent provided under applicable law. Adset will not seek, and hereby waives all rights it may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys’ fees and expenses if it prevails in arbitration.
Fees. Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $75,000, Adset will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)).
Changes. Notwithstanding the provisions of the “Modification” section above, if Adset changes this “Dispute Resolution” section after the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms), you may reject any such change by sending us written notice (including by email to support@Adset.com) within 30 days of the date such change became effective, as indicated in the “Last Updated Date” above or in the date of Adset’s email to you notifying you of such change. By rejecting any change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between you and Adset in accordance with the provisions of this “Dispute Resolution” section as of the date you first accepted these Terms (or accepted any subsequent changes to these Terms).
The failure of Adset to enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of future enforcement of that right or provision. The waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Adset. Except as expressly set forth in these Terms, the exercise by either party of any of its remedies under these Terms will be without prejudice to its other remedies under these Terms or otherwise. If for any reason an arbitrator or a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision of these Terms invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the other provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
