Kantar Media may update the Monitoring List from time to time as appropriate. Where Customer is an advertising agency or public relations company, Customer must submit separate Client Briefs in respect of each client that they are acting for.
Online Delivery of Service
If you have subscribed for an online delivery of the Services a Portal website will be created for that purpose. Kantar Media's acceptance of your Order gives you the right to access the Portal for accessing, searching, displaying and printing on a selective basis the Articles and/or Evaluation Reports stored from time to time therein for the Permitted Uses during the continuance of this Agreement. For this purpose the Permitted Uses are to allow access to the Portal for only the number of licensed users in Customer's organisation as permitted by this Agreement and to use the Portal only for the display of any Articles and Evaluation Reports held within it on screen and to print one copy only of such Articles and/or Evaluation Reports, as Customer requires in hard copy form. Customer is obliged to provide Kantar Media as soon as reasonably practicable on request with a statement stating the number of licensed users in Customer's organisation as permitted by this Agreement, and to confirm that Articles and/or Evaluation Reports have not been seen, used or otherwise dealt with by persons in excess of the number of licensed users. Customer is not permitted to use or allow the use of the Portal or any information held within it for any other purpose and in particular is not permitted to further copy or distribute copies of any Article or Evaluation Report held within it, or digitally store or create any digital archive of Articles; loan, copy or lease Customer's login information for the Portal; transfer Customer's subscription to any third party; or erase, move, delete, deface or otherwise interfere with any copyright notice appearing within the Portal or on any Article, Evaluation Report or other information appearing within the Portal. It is Customer's obligation to ensure it holds any necessary or appropriate licences for its use of Articles and other information appearing within the Portal and to comply with the terms of such licences, and Customer indemnifies and agrees to keep indemnified Kantar Media in respect of loss or expenses (including without limitation legal expenses) becoming payable or incurred by it by reason of any third party claim or suit arising from any alleged failure of Customer in this regard.
Fees and payment terms
The fees for the Services are as set out on the Kantar Pricing document. Customer acknowledges that the fees are subject to change, at Kantar Media's reasonable discretion. All fees are exclusive of Value Added Tax and all other applicable taxes and duties unless otherwise expressly stated. In sourcing Articles for supply, or for the preparation of an Evaluation Report, Kantar Media will run a search of the Monitoring List for a minimum of one month but will continue to run such searches until the requirement for the Services is terminated in accordance with this Agreement. Accordingly the minimum fee for the Services is one monthly service fee(s) applicable to the Services provided on a calendar monthly basis. At the end of each calendar month, Kantar Media shall invoice Customer for the fees relating to the Services that have been incurred during the applicable month. Customer shall pay to Kantar Media the fees for the Services within 30 days of the date of the applicable invoice from Kantar Media. Without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to Kantar Media, Kantar Media shall be entitled immediately and without notice on payment in cleared sums becoming overdue to suspend any further deliveries of Articles to Customer and/or to close any Portal maintained for Customer and delete any Articles or other information contained within such Portal. Kantar Media reserves the right to pass on debt collection costs on overdue invoices to the customer.
Except as referred to in this clause, Customer shall not disclose to any third party, and shall treat as strictly confidential all confidential information received, obtained or created by it as a result of entering into or performing this Agreement. Any party may disclose information, which would otherwise be confidential if and to the extent: (a) it is required to do so by law or a regulatory or governmental body to which it is subject wherever situated- (b) it considers necessary to disclose the information to its professional advisers, auditors and bankers provided that it does so on a confidential basis; (c) the information has come into the public domain through no fault of that party; or (d) each party to whom it relates has given its consent in writing.
Term and termination
This Agreement shall come into effect on the Commencement Date and shall remain in force until terminated in accordance with the terms of this written Agreement. Either party may terminate this Agreement with immediate effect if the other: commits a material or persistent breach of any of the provisions of this Agreement and fails to remedy such breach (if capable of remedy) within 30 days of receipt of written notice from the other specifying the breach; files for bankruptcy or insolvency or becomes an involuntary participant in bankruptcy or involuntary proceedings. Any such termination shall be without prejudice to any other rights or remedies of either party. Kantar Media may terminate this Agreement at any time for its convenience by giving to Customer 30 days' written notice to expire at the end of that period. For non-fixed term contracts, the service will remain in force on a rolling monthly basis unless notice is provided by either party in accordance with the above termination procedure. As of the date of termination Kantar Media will discontinue the Services. However Customer agrees to accept and pay for any Articles or any Evaluation Report that Kantar Media has arranged to provide Customer prior to that date. In the event of termination for any reason any Portal created for the electronic provision of the Services will be permanently closed, all Articles and/or other information stored within the Portal will be destroyed, and neither the Portal nor any Articles or information within it will thereafter be accessible to Customer unless otherwise agreed in writing by Kantar Media.
If the performance by Kantar Media of any of its obligations under this Agreement is prevented by circumstances beyond its reasonable control, Kantar Media shall be excused from performance of that obligation for the duration of the relevant event. Without limitation, the following shall be regarded as circumstances beyond Kantar Media's reasonable control: war, civil disturbance, fire, floods, storm, plant breakdown, strikes, non-availability of the Monitoring List or the Articles or supplies, computer or other system failure or interruption, or any other event outside the control of Kantar Media. In the event and during the period of any system failure or interruption Kantar Media shall be entitled to determine the format for the delivery of the Services and shall be entitled to full payment for the delivery of the relevant Services notwithstanding such delivery are not in the format preferred or required by Customer. Kantar Media shall use reasonable endeavours to ensure that the relevant Articles are found and supplied to Customer; however, Kantar Media cannot guarantee that all relevant Articles will be found or supplied. Kantar Media shall not accept liability for any errors in sending incorrect Articles or omissions in sending relevant Articles or for errors or omissions from any Evaluation Report based on such Articles. Time is not of the essence for the delivery of the Services or any part thereof and Kantar Media cannot guarantee delivery times. Kantar Media will use all reasonable endeavours to procure a readable presentation of any Articles and/or Evaluation Report provided, but reserves the right to determine the nature of presentation and gives no warranty or guarantee in relation to the quality of such presentation. Subject to the liability which Kantar Media accepts in this Agreement, Kantar Media's aggregate liability to Customer arising out of or in connection with this Agreement shall not exceed the value of the fees and/or charges paid by Customer to Kantar Media under this Agreement in the twelve months preceding the date of the event giving rise to such liability (or in the case of a combination of events, the latest relevant event) or ?1,000 whichever is the greater. Kantar Media shall not be liable to Customer in contract, tort or otherwise howsoever arising out of or in connection with this Agreement for any indirect loss, consequential loss, loss of profits, data, revenue, business opportunity, anticipated savings, goodwill or reputation.
The Articles and any Evaluation Report are supplied for the private and non-commercial use of Customer. The Intellectual Property Rights in the Articles and all Evaluation Reports belong to Kantar Media or its licensors. All rights are reserved. None of the Articles nor any Evaluation Report may be copied or reproduced in whole or in part without the prior written consent of Kantar Media or its licensors, as appropriate. Kantar Media shall not be responsible or liable for any loss suffered by Customer in relation to Articles deleted. Customer must comply with all copyright and other requirements in relation to Articles received in whatever form including but not limited to procuring the destruction of all copies (whether paper or electronic) of any Articles which Customer is notified are or may be subject to any rights and/or libel issues, and Customer indemnifies and agrees to keep indemnified Kantar Media in respect of loss or expenses (including without limitation legal expenses) becoming payable or incurred by it by reason of any third party claim or suit alleging that Customer's use of the Articles infringes any Intellectual Property Rights belonging to or any other rights of a third party.
Any notice to either party under this Agreement shall be in writing signed by or on behalf of the party giving it and shall, unless delivered to a party personally, be left or sent by prepaid first class post prepaid recorded delivery or facsimile to the address of the party on the Order Confirmation or as notified in writing from time to time. This Agreement sets out the entire agreement and understanding of the parties with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement and supersedes all representations, communications and prior agreements (written or oral). Each party acknowledges that; (a) upon entering into this Agreement, it does not rely, and has not relied, upon any representation (whether negligent or innocent), statement or warranty made or agreed to by any person (whether a party to this Agreement or not) except those expressly set out in this Agreement; (b) the only remedy available in respect of any misrepresentation or untrue statement made to it shall be a claim for breach of this Agreement; and (c) this clause shall not apply to any statement, representation, or warranty made fraudulently, or to any provision of this Agreement which was induced by fraud for which the remedies available shall be those available under Irish Law.
