- Release – The User hereby releases Adzoola, its Affiliates, and our respective officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures, and employees from claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way connected with any dispute that the User may have with another User, whether it be at law or in equity.
- Indemnification – The User shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Adzoola, our Affiliates, and our respective directors, officers, employees, representatives, and agents (each an “Indemnified Party”) from any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs, losses, and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees and all related costs and expenses) arising from or relating to any claim, suit, proceeding, demand, or action brought by the User, a third party, or another User against an Indemnified Party relating to: (a) use of the Site and the Services by User, including any payment obligations incurred through use of the Services; (b) the User’s failure to comply with the Agreement; (c) User’s failure to comply with applicable law(s) and/or regulation(s); (d) User’s negligence, willful misconduct, or fraud; and (e) defamation, libel, violation of privacy rights, unfair competition, or infringement of Intellectual Property Rights or allegations thereof to the extent caused by the User. Additionally, in no event shall Adzoola, its Affiliates, licensors, or third-party service providers be liable for any special, consequential, incidental, punitive, exemplary, or indirect costs or damages, including, but not limited to, litigation costs, installation and removal costs, or loss of data, production, profit, or business opportunities.
Section XI : Term and Termination
- Term and Termination
- The Agreement comes into full force and effect on the later of the Effective Date or upon registration of an Account in the User’s name, and shall remain in valid and in force for the duration of the User’s use of the Site or Services, unless otherwise terminated earlier in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement. Unless otherwise specified in this Agreement, or by both Parties expressly in writing, either Party may terminate this Agreement in its sole discretion, at any time, without explanation, upon written notice to the other, except as otherwise provided herein. User may provide written notice to support.
- In the event of termination, the User’s right to use the Site shall be automatically revoked, and Account shall be closed; however, the User shall continue to be obligated to pay any amounts accrued but unpaid as of the date of termination to Adzoola for any Services availed up to the date of termination. Termination of this Agreement for any reason shall not release the User or Adzoola from any obligations incurred prior to termination of this Agreement or that thereafter may accrue in respect of any act or omission prior to such termination.
- Without limiting Adzoola’s other rights or remedies, it may temporarily suspend, indefinitely suspend, or permanently revoke the User’s access to the Site and refuse to provide any or all Services to the User if: (i) the User breaches the letter or spirit of any terms and conditions of this Agreement; (ii) Adzoola suspects or becomes aware that the User provided false or misleading information to Adzoola; or (iii) Adzoola believes, in its sole discretion, that the User’s actions may cause legal liability for Adzoola, its other Users, or its Affiliates; may be contrary to the interests of the Site or the User community; or may involve illicit activity. If the User Account is suspended or closed, the User may not use the Site under the same Account or a different Account or reregister under a new Account without Adzoola’s prior written consent. If the User attempts to use the Site under a different Account, Adzoola reserves the right to reclaim available funds in that Account and/or use an available Payment Method to pay for any amounts owed by the User to the extent permitted by applicable law.
- Without limiting Adzoola’s other rights or remedies, if the User engages in actions or activities that circumvent the Site or otherwise reduce fees owed Adzoola or its Affiliates under the Agreement, the User shall pay Adzoola, and authorize Adzoola or its Affiliate to charge the User, for all fees owed to Adzoola and its Affiliates, all losses and costs (including any and all time expended of Adzoola’s employees) and reasonable expenses (including attorneys’ fees) related to investigating such breach and collecting such fees. In addition, violations of the Agreement may be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and may result in additional penalties and sanctions.
- If the User Account is closed for any reason, the User shall no longer have access to data, messages, files, and other material pertaining to the closed Account kept on the Site. If practicable or required by law, Adzoola shall retain this information along with all previous Content for a period of up to five years from the date of closure. However, the User understands, acknowledge, agrees, and affirms that any closure of the User Account may involve deletion of any Content stored in your Account for which Adzoola shall have no liability whatsoever.
- Except as otherwise required by applicable law, Adzoola shall notify the User closing the Account, unless it believes, in its sole judgment, that giving notice may cause damage. The Parties acknowledge and agree that the value, reputation, and goodwill of the Site depend on transparency of User’s Account status to all third parties who have interacted and/or communicated with the User through, or as a result of the Site and/or Services. The User therefore agrees as follows: IF Adzoola DECIDES TO SUSPEND OR CLOSE THE ACCOUNT, Adzoola HAS THE RIGHT BUT NOT THE OBLIGATION TO: (A) NOTIFY OTHER THIRD PARTIES THAT HAVE INTERACTED AND/OR COMMUNICATED WITH THE USER TO INFORM THEM OF THE USER’S SUSPENDED OR CLOSED ACCOUNT STATUS, AND (B) PROVIDE THOSE THIRD PARTIES WITH A SUMMARY OF THE REASONS FOR THE ACCOUNT SUSPENSION OR CLOSURE.
- SURVIVAL – After this Agreement terminates, the terms of this Agreement that expressly or by their nature contemplate performance after the Agreement terminates or expires will survive and continue in full force and effect. For example, the provisions protecting Confidential Information, requiring arbitration, permitting audits, protecting intellectual property, requiring non-circumvention, indemnification, payment of fees, and setting forth limitations of liability each, by their nature, contemplate performance or observance after this Agreement terminates.
Section XII : Dispute Resolution
- Dispute Process and Scope – For any and all disputes arising between the Parties, and/or Adzoola’s Affiliates the Parties agree to resolve any claim, dispute, or controversy that arises out of or relates to this Agreement, or the Services (each, a “Claim”) in accordance with this Section XII. For the purposes of abundant clarity, Claims include, without limitation, all claims, disputes, or controversies arising out of or relating to the Agreement, any payments or monies the User claims are due to them from Adzoola or its Affiliates or successors, trade secrets, unfair competition, false advertising, consumer protection, privacy, compensation, termination, discrimination or harassment and claims arising under statutes or regulations addressing the same or similar subject matters, and all other legal claims arising out of or relating to the Parties’ relationship with one another, or the termination of that relationship. The Parties agree that any Claim must first be attempted to be resolved as described in the subsections below titled “Informal Dispute Resolution” and if such resolution is unsuccessful, then in accordance with the subsection below titled “Jurisdiction.”
- Choice of Law – This Agreement, and any Claim will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England, without regard to its conflict of law provisions.
- Informal Dispute Resolution – Prior to serving a demand for arbitration of a Claim, the User shall first notify Adzoola of the Claim at Attn: Adzoola Ltd, 4 Rosemary Way, Melksham, SN12 7FS, United Kingdom or via support, and Adzoola agrees to provide to the User with notice at the User’s email address on file (in each case, a “Notice”) and seek informal resolution of the Claim. All Notice from User shall include the User’s name, pertinent account information, a brief description of the Claim, and contact information, to enable Adzoola to evaluate the Claim and attempt to informally and quickly resolve the Claim. Any Notice from Adzoola to the User must include pertinent account information, a brief description of the Claim, and Adzoola’s contact information, enable the User to evaluate the Claim and attempt to informally and quickly resolve the same. In the event that the Parties have not successfully informally resolved the claim within 60 days from the date of the receipt of the Notice, the Parties shall proceed with the Claim in accordance with Section XII (4) hereunder.
- Jurisdiction – Any Claim not successfully resolved in accordance with Section XII (3) hereinabove, shall be resolved by the courts of appropriate jurisdiction in Wiltshire, England.
Section XIII : General Provisions
- ENTIRE AGREEMENT – This Agreement sets forth the entire agreement and understanding between the User and Adzoola relating to the subject matter hereof and thereof and cancels and supersedes any prior or contemporaneous discussions, agreements, representations, warranties, and other communications between the Parties, written or oral, to the extent they relate in any way to the subject matter hereof and thereof. The section headings in the Agreement are included for ease of reference only and have no binding effect. Even though Adzoola has drafted the Agreement, the User represents that they had ample time to review and decide whether to agree to the Agreement. If an ambiguity or question of intent or interpretation of the Agreement arises, no presumption or burden of proof will arise favoring or disfavoring the Parties because of the authorship of any provision of the Agreement.
- MODIFICATIONS – No modification or amendment to the Agreement shall be binding upon Adzoola unless in a written instrument signed by a duly authorized representative of Adzoola. For the purposes of this subsection, a written instrument will expressly exclude electronic communications, such as email and electronic notices.
- NO WAIVER – Nothwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, the failure or delay of either Party to exercise or enforce any right or claim does not constitute a waiver of such right or claim and will in no way affect that Party’s right to later enforce or exercise it, unless such Party issues an express written waiver, signed by a duly authorized representative of such Party.
- ASSIGNABILITY – User may not assign any of its rights or obligations herein, for any reason whatsoever. Adzoola may freely assign this Agreement without User’s consent. Any attempted assignment or transfer in violation of this subsection will be null and void.
- SEVERABILITY – If and to the extent any provision of this Agreement is held illegal, invalid, or unenforceable in whole or in part under applicable law, such provision or such portion thereof will be ineffective as to the jurisdiction in which it is illegal, invalid, or unenforceable to the extent of its illegality, invalidity, or unenforceability and will be deemed modified to the extent necessary to conform to applicable law so as to give the maximum effect to the intent of the Parties. The illegality, invalidity, or unenforceability of such provision in that jurisdiction will not in any way affect the legality, validity, or enforceability of such provision in any other jurisdiction or of any other provision in any jurisdiction.
- FORCE MAJEURE – Neither Party shall be responsible for the failure to perform or any delay in performance of any obligation hereunder due to labor disturbances, accidents, fires, floods, telecommunications or Internet failures, strikes, wars, riots, rebellions, blockades, acts of government, governmental requirements and regulations or restrictions imposed by law or any other similar conditions beyond the reasonable control of such party. The time for performance of such Party shall be extended by the period of such delay. Irrespective of any extension of time, if an event of Force Majeure occurs and its effect continues for a period of 30 days, either Party shall have the right to give to the other a 30-day notice of termination.
- PREVAILING LANGUAGE AND LOCATION – The English language version of the Agreement shall be controlling in all respects and will prevail in case of any inconsistencies with translated versions, if any. The Site is controlled and operated from our facilities in Wiltshire, England. Adzoola makes no representations or warranties that the Site is appropriate or available for use in other locations. Those who access or use the Site from other jurisdictions do so at their own volition and are entirely responsible for compliance with all applicable foreign, and local laws and regulations.
- INFORMATION COLLECTION
- Information You Provide to Us
When you use the Service(s), you may provide us with information about you. This may include, without limitation, your name and contact information, and/or financial information to make or receive payment for Services obtained through the Site or otherwise. When you use the Services, we may also collect information related to such use by you, and aggregate this with information about Adzoola Users (defined below), which helps Adzoola improve our Services for you and other Adzoola Users.
- Personal Information: In the course of using the Services, Adzoola may require or otherwise collect information that identifies the User as a specific individual and can be used to contact or identify User (“Personal Information”). Examples of Personal Information include your name, email address, company address, billing address, and phone number.
- Payment Information: If the User uses the Services to make payments, Adzoola will also collect certain payment information of the User, such as debit/credit card, PayPal, bank account details or other financial account information, and billing address.
- Identity Verification: Adzoola may also collect Personal Information, such as the User’s date of birth and/or the User’s passport / national identification number / company registration number, to validate the User’s identity or as may be required by law or for contractual formalities. Adzoola may request documents to verify this information, including without limitation, a copy of the User’s government-issued identification or certificates of registration.
- Minors: The Services are intended for users 18 and older. Adzoola does not knowingly collect Personal Information from anyone under the age of 18. If Adzoola becomes aware that a child younger than 18 years of age has provided Adzoola with Personal Information, we shall use all commercially reasonable efforts to delete such information from Adzoola’s files. If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child younger than age 18 and believe that Adzoola has collected Personal Information from your child, please contact us at via support.
- Non-Identifying Information/Usernames: Adzoola also may collect other information, such as postal codes, demographic data, information regarding the User’s use of the Services, and general project or Campaign-related data (“Non-Identifying Information”). Adzoola may aggregate information collected from Adzoola registered and non-registered users of the Services (“Adzoola Users”).
- Combination of Personal and Non-Identifying Information: Certain Non-Identifying Information would be considered a part of the User’s Personal Information if it were combined with other identifiers in a way that enables the User to be identified (e.g. combining postal code with information with the User’s name). But the same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other non-identifying information (e.g. combining postal code with the User’s viewing preferences). Adzoola may combine the User’s Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information, but Adzoola shall then treat the combined information as Personal Information.
- Information Received from Third Parties
- Information Collected from Adzoola Users Automatically
Adzoola also receives technical information when Adzoola Users utilise the Services. Adzoola uses this technical information to analyze how Adzoola Users utilise the Services, to improve how the Site functions, save log-in information of the Adzoola Users for future sessions, serve the Adzoola Users with advertisements of potential interest to them.Adzoola and our third-party service providers (including, without limitation, our analytics and third party content providers), may automatically collect certain information from the User whenever the User accesses or interacts with the Services, which may include without limitation iconter alia (1) the browser and operating system being using; (2) the URL or advertisement that referred the User to the Services; (3) any search terms entered by the User into a search engine that led the User to the Services; (4) areas within the Services that the User visited; and (6) other information commonly shared when browsers communicate with websites.

A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned or connected to the device used by the User to access the Service, and Adzoola servers identify the User’s device by its Device Identifier. Mobile service providers may also provide Adzoola or our third-party service providers with information regarding the physical location of the device used by the User to access the Service.
- Web Beacons: We and our marketing partners, affiliates, analytics, and service providers may also employ software technology known as “web beacons” and/or “tracking tags” to help us keep track of what content on our Service is effective and to serve relevant advertising to you. Web beacons are small graphics with a unique identifier that may be invisible to you, and which are used to track the online activity of Internet users. Web beacons are embedded in the web pages you review or email messages you receive. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to our Service, to monitor how Adzoola Users navigate the Service, to count how many emails that were sent were actually opened, or to count how many particular articles or links were actually viewed.
- Embedded Scripts: We and our marketing partners, Affiliates, analytics, and service providers may also employ Embedded Script software technology, which is programming code designed to collect information about the User’s interactions with the Services, such as the links clicked on by the User. This code is temporarily downloaded onto the User’s computer or other device and is deactivated or deleted when the User disconnects from the Services.
- Miscellaneous: In addition, we and our marketing partners, affiliates, analytics, and service providers may use a variety of other technologies (such as tags) that collect similar information for security and fraud detection purposes and we may use third parties to perform these services on our behalf.

The User’s choices regarding how Adzoola may communicate with the User.
Registered Adzoola Users may update their choices regarding the types of communications received from Adzoola through clicking “Unsubscribe” in any email communication received by the User from Adzoola. The User also may opt-out of receiving marketing emails from Adzoola by following the opt-out instructions provided in those emails. Please note that Adzoola reserves the right to send the User certain communications relating to the User’s Member Account or use of the Services (for example, administrative and service announcements) via email and other means and these transactional account messages may be unaffected if the User opts-out from receiving marketing communications. The User may opt-out of receiving text messages by replying “STOP” to any text message received.

- CHANGING THE USER’S INFORMATION OR CLOSING THE MEMBER ACCOUNT
The User may request access to all Personal Information Adzoola has about the User, and/or may delete the User’s Member Account and/or request deletion of all Personal information Adzoola has about the User. Adzoola shall honour such request to the extent reasonably possible, but some information shall remain on the Services, such as information the User posted publicly (e.g. testimonials).
The User is responsible for maintaining the accuracy of the information submitted to Adzoola, such as the User’s contact information. The User may access, correct, or request deletion of Personal Information by making updates to that information or by contacting Adzoola through the online Member Account. If the User requests to access all Personal Information submitted, Adzoola shall respond to such request to access within 30 days. If the User completely deletes all such information, then the User’s Member Account may become deactivated. If the Member Account is deactivated or the User requests to close the Member Account, the User shall no longer be able to use all of the Services. While Adzoola endeavours to use all commercially reasonable efforts to honour the User’s request to delete all of the User’s information; however, certain information may persist on the Services even if the User closes the Member Account. In addition, the User’s Personal Information may remain in Adzoola’s archives and information the User updates or deletes, or information within a closed Member Account, may persist internally or for Adzoola’s administrative purposes. It is not always possible to completely remove or delete information from Adzoola’s databases. In addition, Adzoola typically will not remove information that the User posted publicly through or on the Services. Bear in mind that neither the User nor Adzoola can delete all copies of information that has been previously shared with others on the Services.
We take a number of steps to protect your data, but no security is guaranteed.
Adzoola takes commercially reasonable steps to help protect and secure the information it collects and stores about Adzoola Users. But the User hereby agrees, accepts and acknowledges that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Thus, while we strive to protect your personal data, Adzoola cannot ensure and does not warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.
- INTERNATIONAL TRANSFER OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Adzoola protects personally identifiable information from residents of the European Union, other European Economic Area countries, in accordance with applicable law.
- LINKS TO OTHER SITES
The Services may contain links to other websites. If the User clicks on a third-party link, that User shall be directed to that third party’s website. The User hereby acknowledges and agrees that Adzoola’s link to a website is not to be considered or deemed as an endorsement, authorization or representation of Adzoola’s affiliation with that third-party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. Adzoola does not exercise control over third-party websites, which may place their own cookies or other files on the User’s computer, collect data or solicit Personal Information from the User. We encourage the User to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites the User visits.
Phishing websites imitate legitimate websites in order to obtain personal or financial information. Identity theft and the practice currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to Adzoola. If the User believes the User has received an email or had a similar interaction with a third-party pretending to be Adzoola, the User shall report it to Adzoola immediately via support.

What are cookies?
Cookies are text files, containing small amounts of information, which are downloaded to the User’s browsing device (such as a computer or smartphone) when the User visits a website. Cookies can be recognized by the website that downloaded them — or other websites that use the same cookies. This helps websites know if the browsing device has visited them before.
What are cookies used for?
Cookies do lots of different jobs, like helping Adzoola understand how the Site is being used, letting the User navigate between pages efficiently, remembering the User’s preferences, and generally improving the User’s browsing experience. Cookies can also help ensure marketing a User sees online is more relevant to that User and their interests.
What type of cookies does Adzoola use?
The type of cookies used on most websites can generally be put into one of six categories: Strictly Necessary, Performance, Functionality, Flash, Tailored Content and Targeting. In order to provide the User with the best browsing experience, Adzoola uses all of these categories on the Site. For more information please read about each cookie category in the sections below.
Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are essential, as they enable the User to move around the Site and use its features, such as accessing secure areas. Without these cookies, some Services the User may ask for, such as payment submission cannot be provided.
These cookies collect information about how the User uses the Site, for example which pages the User goes to most often and if the User receives error messages from certain pages. These cookies don’t gather information that identifies the User, just information about the User’s behaviour. All information these cookies collect is anonymous and is only used to improve how the Site works.
These cookies allow the Site to remember choices the User makes (such as their User/Account name, language or the region the User is located in). They may also be used to provide Services requested by the User, such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymous and they cannot track the User’s browsing activity on other websites.
Adzoola may, in certain circumstances, use Adobe Flash Player to deliver special content, such as video clips or animation. To improve the User’s experience, Local Shared Objects (also known as “Flash Cookies”) are employed to provide functions such as remembering the User’s settings and preferences. Flash cookies are stored on the User’s device, but they are managed through an interface different from the one provided by their web browser. This means it is not possible to manage Flash cookies through the User’s browser in the same way the User would normally manage cookies. Instead, the User can access your Flash management tools from Adobe’s website at http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager.html.
Tailored content cookies
Tailored content cookies help the Site provide enhanced features and display content in a way that is relevant to the User. These cookies help the Site determine what information to show the User based on how the User has used the Site previously. These cookies do not track the User’s browsing activity on other websites.
These cookies are used to deliver advertisements that are more relevant to the User and their interests. They are also used to limit the number of times a User sees an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. They remember that the User has visited a website and this information may be shared with other organizations such as advertisers. This means after the User has been to the Site, they may see some advertisements about Adzoola’s Services elsewhere on the Internet.
How long will cookies stay on the browsing device?
The length of time a cookie will stay on the User’s browsing device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Session cookies will only stay on the User’s device until the User stops browsing. Persistent cookies stay on the User’s browsing device until they expire or are deleted.
First and third party cookies
First party cookies are cookies that belong to Adzoola, while third party cookies are cookies that another party places on the User’s browsing device through the Site. For example, Facebook will place a cookie on the User’s browsing device if the User clicks on the Facebook link when browsing the Site.
How to control and delete cookies through the user’s browser
The browser used by the User to view the Site can enable, disable or delete cookies. To do this, follow the instructions provided by that browser (usually located within the “Help,” “Tools” or “Edit” facility). Please note that if the User sets the browser to disable cookies, then the User may not be able to access certain parts of the Site. Other parts of the Site may also not work properly. For more information on how to change browser cookie settings, please visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
