Company reserves the right to change its price list and to institute new charges at any time, upon prior notice to User, which may be sent by email or posted on the Site. If User is an advertiser, User shall pre-pay all applicable fees, as described on the Site, in connection with such Services selected by User. If User is a publisher, User shall receive a percentage of the Net Revenue of Advertisements associated with User's use of the Services as solely determined by Company. "Net Revenue" shall mean revenues actually received by AdMob from the sale, use or other disposition of Advertisements displayed on Publisher's Mobile Property less sales, use and excise taxes, less any agency commissions, carrier and/or partner fees, and less any allowances actually made or taken for returns, cash discounts or promotional allowances but excluding other revenues indirectly earned, if applicable, for consulting, planning and targeting, copywriting, site building, account management or technical modifications or technical innovations which may be charged by AdMob to third parties from time to time. The portion of Net Revenue received by User shall be determined on the first Monday of each calendar month, on which day those revenues accrued to User's account thirty (30) or more days earlier shall become eligible to be paid. Payments to User shall be sent by Company only if User's earned balance is greater than or equal to $20USD (Twenty Dollars, US). If User's earned balance is less than $20USD, no check shall be sent until the following calendar month, on the first Monday of which Company shall make the aforesaid determination anew. In addition, if User is a publisher, User agrees that any payments that may become due to User (as described on the Site) are specifically conditioned upon Company's receipt of full payment from the applicable advertiser. If Company does not receive the applicable payment in full from any such advertiser, Company shall have no liability or responsibility to User (and User hereby releases Company) with respect thereto. If User disputes any payment made in connection with the Services, User must notify Company in writing within thirty (30) days of any such payment. Failure to so notify Company shall result in the waiver by User of any claims related to such disputed payment. Payment shall be calculated solely based on records maintained by Company. No other measurements or statistics of any kind shall be accepted by Company or have any effect under this Agreement. Company shall not be liable for any payment based on (i) any fraudulent impressions generated by any person, robot, automated program or similar device or for fraudulent impressions similarly generated on any advertisements, as reasonably determined by Company; (ii) impressions commingled with a significant number of fraudulent impressions or fraudulent clicks described in (i) above; or (iii) any breach of this Agreement by User. To ensure proper payment, User is solely responsible for providing and maintaining accurate contact and payment information associated with User's account and Company User ID. User agrees to pay all applicable taxes or charges imposed by any government entity in connection with User's use of the Services.
