Master Campaign Agreement

Introduction

1.1 This “Master Campaign Agreement” (or “Agreement”) is between each demand side partner (hereinafter the “DSP”) and supply side partner (hereinafter the “SSP”) (each a “Party” and collectively the “Parties”) that enters into a performance marketing relationship using the Axis Platform owned and operated by Axis Corp LTD, a limited company duly registered in accordance with the laws of England and Wales, having its registered address at: Suite 7057 128 Aldersgate Street, Barbican, London, England, EC1A 4AE (hereinafter “Axis”, “We” or “Us”) and hosted from the URL, axis-marketplace.com.

The terms of the IOs are strictly between DSP and SSP. Each executed Insertion OrderEnum together with the Agreement and Schedule 1 will constitute a separate contract between SSP and DSP.
