The company ADROCKTV SAS (hereafter referred to as: "ADROCKTV") proposes a solution for monitoring website publishers’ advertising inventories, which it markets under the Pubstack brand (hereafter referred to as the: "Solution"). The Solution helps the "monetisation" teams of the client identified in the Quotation(s) mentioned in article 3 (hereafter referred to as the:"Client") to collect all data which may have an impact upon monetisation, to enable them to take better decisions and more quickly.
The Solution can be accessed by its users in "SaaS" mode (Software as a Service) via the website App.pubstack.io (hereafter referred to as the: "Website").
The purpose of these general conditions is to define the legal, financial and technical conditions under which ADROCKTV:
Along with the Quotation(s), they constitute an indivisible contractual whole (hereafter referred to as the: "Contract"). In the event of contradiction, the provisions of the Quotation(s) take precedence over these general conditions. In the event of contradiction between different Quotations, the most recent document takes precedence over the older ones.
The Contract takes precedence over all other general or special conditions not expressly agreed by ADROCKTV.
2. A Solution and Services reserved for business
The Solution and the Services are designed for and intended for business use and are therefore intended exclusively for business people operating within the scope of their business.
3. Ordering the Solution and the Services and acceptance of the general conditions
3.1 Before accessing the Solution and before any performance of the Services, the Client must supply ADROCKTV with the necessary information and documents to enable it to identify his needs and expectations. Based on this information, ADROCKTV will issue one or several quotations (hereafter referred to as a: "Quotation"). The Quotation will state the type of Services and the related cost.
3.2 Unless stated otherwise, the Quotations issued by ADROCKTV are valid for one month as from their issue date. Should they not be confirmed by the Client within this deadline, they will become void. A Client wishing to order the Solution and the Services must confirm the corresponding Quotation within the above-mentioned deadline by any appropriate method, including by e-mail. This confirmation may be followed where applicable by the issuing of an order form by the Client, although such an order form will have no impact on the above-mentioned Contract
3.3 Any confirmation of a Quotation, whether express or implicit, implies full and unreserved acceptance of the version of these general conditions in force on the date of the Quotation concerned. Any conditional acceptance will be considered null and void. Any Client who does not agree to be bound by these general conditions must not order the Services from ADROCKTV.
3.4 A new Quotation will be issued in the event of a modification to the initial Services or a new order. The provisions of this new Quotation take precedence over the previous one. Unless stated in the new Quotation, the commitment periods will remain identical to the initialQuotation.
4.Licence to use the Solution
4.1 Scope of the licence
ADROCKTV grants the Client, on a worldwide basis and for the duration mentioned in the article entitled "Duration", a non-exclusive, personal and non-transferable licence to use the Solution, according to the version of the chosen module existing on the date of this agreement or its new and updated version, in addition to its technical documentation, in SaaS mode, solely for the purpose of supplying the Services and only for those persons which the Client has authorised beforehand to use the Solution (hereafter referred to as the: “Users”).
4.2 Terms and conditions for using the Solution
The above-mentioned licence is granted solely for the purpose of enabling the Client to use the Solution, subject to the terms and conditions mentioned in this document and in the Quotation, for his own requirements and only by the Users. The right of use includes the right to display and deploy the Solution pursuant to its intended purposes, in SaaS mode, via a connection to an electronic communications network.
The Client consequently agrees not to:
5.1 Type of Services proposed
ADROCKTV proposes two types of services to the Client as part of the Solution:
5.2 Test phase
Following the signature of the Quotation, the Client may opt to use the Solution for a testphase, which is not billed. Upon completion of this test phase, the Client has the option not touse the Solution and therefore to no longer be bound by this Contract without notice, as awaiver to the provisions of the article entitled "Duration". If he decides to continue using theSolution, the Client will continue to be bound by the provisions of these general conditions.
5.3 Configuring the Solution
To access the Solution, ADROCKTV configures the Client’s Interface in accordance with the following conditions:
The Client may access his Interface at any time after logging in with his access codes. The Client agrees to use the Solution and the Services personally and not allow any third party to use them in his place or on his behalf, failing which he will assume full liability for this use. The Client has the opportunity to configure access for his employees as Users, enabling them to access the Interface via e-mail on the conditions mentioned below.
5.4 The selection of Users
It is the Client’s responsibility to select the Users who will have access to the Solution, subject to the maximum number of Users stated in the offer or in the Quotation. To do so, the Client appoints an administrator, who is a natural person acting as a contact person and coordinator, authorised by the Client to manage the use of the Solution and to select the Users who will have access to it (hereafter referred to as the "Administrator"). Via the Administrator, theClient may ask ADROCKTV to create Accounts for the Users by any means.
The Client assumes sole liability and responsibility for ensuring that the Users treat their usernames and/or passwords as strictly private and confidential.
He agrees to ensure that the Users do not allow any third parties to use them in their place or on their behalf, failing which he will assume full liability for such use. He expressly acknowledges that any use of the Solution with these login details will be considered to have been performed by the corresponding Users.
6.1 Accessing and reading the data from the Solution via the Interface
Once the Interface has been configured, the Client and the Users designated by him have access to the visualisation and presentation of the advertising data collected by the Solution.The Solution thus makes it possible to centralise several data sources concerning the monetisation of websites, to aggregate and enrich this data and to display it on the Interface in an interactive manner, in real-time.
The Client and the Users cannot interact with the web surfers, whose data displayed on the interface are anonymized.
6.2 Recommendations and alerts
The Client has access to ADROCKTV's recommendation service, interacting with ADROCKTV by any method. This service enables the Client to receive technical and strategic recommendations concerning the listing of his online advertising, based on the data collected by the Solution. The Client can also configure alerts on the websites on which his advertising is displayed, in the case of anomalies concerning advertising performance for example.
6.3 Other Services
ADROCKTV reserves the possibility to propose any other Service it considers useful, in the form and based on the technical resources and functions he considers most appropriate to provide the said Services.
ADROCKTV will handle the corrective and progressive maintenance for the Solution and provide support for it.

The reception of this notification constitutes a report of an Anomaly.
ADROCKTV will then analyse the Anomaly, to ascertain among other things whether theSolution is the cause. ADROCKTV will inform the Client of the results of the assessment by e-mail as soon as possible after the Anomaly has been reported.
If it is found that the Solution is the source of the Anomaly, ADROCKTV agrees to deploy the necessary means and resources to correct it as soon as possible.
ADROCKTV will also correct any Anomalies it detects or which are reported to it by the Client, to ensure the quality of the Services and the Solution.
