Due to the competitiveness of some keywords/phrases, ongoing algorithm changes, and other competitive factors, Corbec Media does not guarantee specific rankings or search engine results page positions for any particular keyword, phrase, or search term.

  1. Search engines have been known to rank pages over time. Therefore we cannot guarantee the rankings and traffic of new websites (or pages) to improve in “x” amount of time.
  2. Engaging in link schemes, link exchanges, or buying links can negatively impact your website’s rankings. Corbec Medi does not assume liability for the Client’s choice to link to or obtain a link from any particular website without prior consultation, nor does Corbec Media assume liability for ranking, traffic, indexing issues related to such penalties.
  3. Corbec Media’s SEO process takes at least 2-3 months to show some significant effect. During this time, the Client’s website is analyzed and optimized within the timelines and resources specified in the agreement. Achieving stable ranking improvements can take up to 6-12 months.

  1. Corbec Media accepts no responsibility for policies of advertising networks, third-party search engines, directories, or other websites that Corbec Media may submit to concerning the classification or type of content it accepts, whether now or in the future.

The Client agrees not to hold Corbec Media responsible for any liability or actions taken by third-party resources under this agreement.
  2. Corbec Media does not guarantee a position, consistent positioning, or specific placement for any particular paid search keyword, phrase, or search term. 
  3. The Client acknowledges that Corbec Media’s past performance does not indicate any future results the client may experience.
  4. The Client acknowledges that advertising campaigns may be subject to the individual advertising network’s policies and procedures. Changes to these policies may require added resources employed by Corbec Media to adhere to these changes. The Client may be charged an additional fee for making these updates, based on the hourly rate of $150 per hour.
  5. The Client acknowledges that any advertising networks, search engines, directories, or other resources may block, prevent or otherwise stop accepting submissions for an indefinite period.
  6. The Client acknowledges that advertising networks may drop listings from their database for no apparent or predictable reason. Corbec Media shall re-submit resources to the advertising network based on the current policies of the search engine in question.

Development of creative assets in support of Paid Media campaigns will be explicitly outlined as a part of the deliverables in the SOW with Corbec Media.

Any forecasting metrics provided to the Client are estimates based on industry knowledge and advertising network projected forecasts.

Corbec Media cannot be held accountable for the exact delivery, inventory, and/or performance of ad campaigns projected due to third-party forecasts.

When applicable, Third Party Ad Server tags will be implemented to be functional in all aspects. Corbec Media cannot be held to reporting accuracy without installing appropriate tagging on all digital assets.

When reporting is delivered by Corbec Media, data is provided directly based on the ad network’s currently available data. If reporting is delivered 30 days after the campaign has ended, all data may not have time to be collected, and exact accuracy can be affected.

Pre-payment for media/liability for payment. Where Client has engaged Corbec Media to procure media or advertising on its behalf (e.g., including but not limited to print, radio, television, digital), and Client is not paying for the media/advertising directly to the advertising/media vendor, Corbec Media must receive payment for the media/advertising before the media/advertising running. If Corbec Media does not receive payment for both the media budget and the media management fees, it may, at its discretion, choose to cancel or pause the media until payment is received. Suppose Corbec Meia has not received payment for the media/advertising but allows the media/advertising to run. In that case, the Client will remain responsible to Corbec Media and/or the advertising/media vendor for payment of same, notwithstanding the existence of any insertion order or contract between Corbec Media and the advertising/media vendor. Suppose an advertising/media vendor seeks compensation from Corbec Media for media that the Client has not paid Corbec Media. In that case, the Client agrees that it will execute any documents requested by Corbec Media and/or the media/advertising vendor to assume liability for payment. 

  1. Early termination of media spend. Suppose Client seeks to cancel media earlier than the date outlined in any media contract. In that case, Corbec Media will use its best efforts to cancel the same without penalty to the Client. However, the Client expressly understands and agrees that certain media/advertising vendors will not allow cancellations and/or charge a cancellation fee or “short rate” for the same. The client shall be responsible for those amounts to the extent they have not already been paid to Corbec Media. 
  2. Effect of termination of our agreement for media placement. If the Client terminates a Service Agreement for media placement, Corbec Media will cancel all pending media unless otherwise agreed to in writing by the parties. Suppose Client is indebted to Corbec Media for Corbec Media’s services. In that case, Corbec Media reserves the right to offset that debt with any payments Client has prepaid to Corbec Media for media. Any amounts left over after full payment of Corbec Media’s outstanding fees (including time spent canceling media) and fees still due to media/advertising vendors will not be refunded but may instead be used by the Client for additional Corbec Media’s services and/or additional media placement.

Video clients: Corbec Media may, but is not required to, retain or store video footage on behalf of Client unless expressly agreed to in the Service Agreement. If a video shoot is scheduled to cancel, the Client should provide at least 24 hours’ notice. Shoots canceled with less than 24 hours notice will be subject to a day’s production fee.

PR clients: While Corbec Media uses its best efforts to get a Client’s press release(s) published, the Client acknowledges that the decision to accept a story remains with the publishing source, and Corbec Media cannot, therefore, guarantee that a story or press release will be published or when it will be published.

  4. Survival of Provisions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the portions of this agreement relating to Taxes, Indemnity, Warranties, Limitation of Liability, Governing Law and Venue, Force Majeure, Waiver, and Counterparts shall survive termination of this agreement.

Payment: Unless otherwise outlined, payment will be due on the due date reflected on the invoice. Unless otherwise outlined, monthly costs will be billed on the first day of the month for that month’s services. Billing for media spends will be on the first of the month in the month before when the spending is to occur.

In that case, the Client will be billed for the entire month of services should the termination date occur after the first of the month. The client will not be refunded for pre-paid hosting fees. 

All payments made to Corbec Media shall be in U.S. Dollars in the form of a company check, cashier’s check, or electronic wire transfer.

Indemnity: The client agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Corbec Media for the following:

  1. Limitation of Liability: IN NO EVENT SHALL CORBEC MEDIA BE LIABLE TO CLIENT FOR ANY DIRECT, SPECIAL, INDIRECT, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF PROFITS, LOSS OF DATA, OR LOSSES AS A RESULT OF DISCLOSURE OF USER CONTENT OR OTHER DATA, WHETHER IN AN ACTION IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO NEGLIGENCE), OR OTHERWISE, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH CORBEC MEDIA’S PRODUCTS OR SERVICES. IN NO EVENT SHALL THE AGGREGATE LIABILITY OF CORBEC MEDIA EXCEED ANY COMPENSATION PAID BY YOU TO CORBEC MEDIA FOR ITS PRODUCTS OR SERVICES.
  2. Disclaimer of Warranty: THE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES ARE PROVIDED on an “AS IS” and “AS AVAILABLE” BASIS AND CORBEC MEDIA EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS AND IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. Corbec Media strives to exceed Client expectations; however, since various external forces can influence marketing results outside of our control, Corbec Media cannot guarantee specific results or return on investment. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the deliverables to be provided to Client under the Service Agreement were custom web application development, Corbec Media warrants that any programming code developed by Corbec Media as part of its deliverables shall be free of ‘bugs’ for 90 days after the go-live date. For purposes of this paragraph, ‘bugs’ are defined as programming errors that make the application unable to function in a manner specified by the Service Agreement and do not include upgrades or enhancements to the functionality of graphic design changes. Further, Corbec Media shall have no responsibility to fix any ‘bugs’ that arise after the go-live date where: 1) the Client or Client’s designees have gone into the back-end code and made changes, or 2) a third party component that has been made a part of the deliverables has been updated or changed by the third party component owner after the go-live date. By way of example, if a web application contains a third party content management system, such as Umbraco, Drupal, Joomla, or WordPress, and changes to that system result in the inability of the Corbec Media code to appropriately interact with the system, Corbec Media shall not be responsible for fixing same. The Client may request additional programming work under a separate contract at the then-current billing rates. Unless otherwise explicitly noted in the Service Agreement, Corbec Media does not warrant that any deliverables, including but not limited to websites, created for the Client are accessible, Section 508 or ADA-compliant. The development of an accessible website must be expressly agreed to in the Service Agreement.
