Joom Ads Terms of Service

These Joom Ads Terms of Service (the “Terms”) contain the terms and conditions that govern the Merchant’s access to and use of services (the “Services”) relating to the advertising of goods and services via Joom Ads (as defined below) on the points of sale operated by SIA Joom (“Joom”). These Terms supplement the existing terms of service (the “Terms of Service”) according to which the Merchant (as defined below) places and sells the goods through the Site (as defined below). By using the Services, the Merchant agrees to be bound by these Terms. In the event of conflict between these Terms and the Terms of Service, these Terms shall apply.

1. Definitions

The Merchant indicates the Bid in Joom Ads. For the purpose of this definition the Good’s price shall not include the logistics price and the percentage which the Merchant pays to Joom for the sale of the Good.

Intellectual Property Right” means any patent, copyright, trademark, domain name, moral right, trade secret right, or any other intellectual property right.

Materials” means any content, information, data, images, videos and other materials provided or made available by the Merchant to Joom in connection with the Services.

2. Joom Ads Services

The Services will allow the Merchant to create and manage the Campaigns.

Each Campaign has a name which the Merchant assigns to it in the process of creation and ID which is assigned to the Campaign automatically by Joom.

Each and every Campaign will be launched automatically when the Merchant presses the button “Launch the campaign”. Information on each launched campaign is available for the Merchant in the “Joom Ads” section of the Merchant’s account on the Site.

Without limiting the Merchant’s responsibility for the Materials and the Merchant’s use of the Services, Joom reserves the right to determine and control all aspects (including all functionality) of the Services and/or restrict the Merchant’s access to the Service at any time at Joom’s sole discretion without any notice to the Merchant. However, Joom will not conduct routine monitoring or control of the Materials made available by the Merchants and to be displayed in the framework of a Campaign, or the Goods they are associated with. The Merchant are fully liable for the Materials provided to Joom. Joom may at any time suspend rendering the Services, reject or remove any of the Materials or Ads without any notice to the Merchant, in particular if it incidentally becomes aware of any potentially illicit Material.

3. Merchant’s Rights

The Merchant has the following rights while using the Services:

  1. The Merchant is entitled to determine the duration of the Campaign in the course of the Campaign creation;
  2. The Merchant can suspend the Campaign at any time. In case the Campaign doesn’t have an end date, the Merchant may renew it at any time. In case the Campaign has an end date, the Merchant may restart it only before an end date.
  3. The Merchant may determine the content of the Campaign before the Campaign’s launch by adding the Goods to the Campaign. If a certain Good couldn’t be advertised/promoted via the Joom Ads, Joom will inform the Merchant that the mistake has arisen with adding this Good to the Campaign.

4. Financial Conditions

For sale of the Good following the User Click, the Merchant is obliged to pay the Bid to Joom. Each Campaign shall have a daily budget determined by the Merchant. A daily budget shall be equal to the aggregate of Bids charged by Joom per day of providing the Services. In case the Campaign does not have an end date, its total budget shall be equal to the number of the Campaign’s days multiplied by its daily budget.

Joom may not charge the Bid for a certain number (determined by Joom at its sole discretion without notice to the Merchant) of the sales of Goods via the Joom Ads from new Merchants using the Joom Ads as an incentive to use the Joom Ads, but the application of this promotional measure is Joom’s right, not an obligation.

If the order of the Goods is cancelled by the user of the Site or by the Merchant, the Bid shall not be returned to the Merchant.

The Bid already paid to Joom in connection with the suspended/cancelled Campaign will not be refunded, and the Bid to be paid in connection with the cancelled Campaign shall be attributed to the date of the User Click (in which case the daily budget indicated by the Merchant may increase) and shall be payable to Joom after cancellation of the Campaign.

For any amounts the Merchant owes to Joom, Joom may (a) offset any amounts that are due and payable by the Merchant to Joom against any payments Joom is obliged to make to the Merchant in connection with the Merchant’s use of the Site, or (b) invoice the Merchant for amounts due to Joom under these Terms, in which case the Merchant shall pay the invoiced amounts within 7 (seven) calendar days from the invoice date. In case the amount due for payment under the invoice for the respective reporting period differs from the amount for the same period indicated in the Merchant’s account, the information and the amount provided in the invoice shall prevail. The Merchant shall reimburse Joom for all fees incurred in connection with collection of the amounts owed by the Merchant to Joom. The Merchant hereby waives all claims related to the Bid Joom charges, unless made within 7 (seven) days after the date of charge of the Bid.

5. Ad

The Ad may be displayed on any part of the Site as Joom determines. Except as otherwise agreed upon, Joom does not guarantee that the Ad will be displayed on or made available through any portion of the Site, nor does Joom guarantee that the Ad will appear in any particular position or rank. In addition, Joom does not guarantee any impressions from the display of the Ad or any sales of the Goods as a result of rendering the Services. The Merchant is solely responsible for all obligations, risks, liabilities and other aspects arising out of or related to providing the Materials and/or use of the Services.

6. Merchant’s Eligibility

Any Merchant is entitled to request the Services from Joom. Joom is not obliged to provide any Merchant with the Services upon the Merchant’s request, rendering the Services is Joom’s right, not an obligation and may be realized by Joom upon its discretion.

7. Goods’ Eligibility

All Goods which comply with the requirements of these Terms and the Terms of Service may be advertised and/or promoted via the Joom Ads.
