Website advertising agreement
The provision of an advertisement (or a set of advertisements) for publication on website (or a network of websites) gives rise to various legal issues. The purpose of this website advertising agreement is to help the parties to deal with those issues.
The advertiser will want to know that the advertisements will be published as agreed. Moreover, the advertiser will want to ensure that the operator does not use the advertisements in any damaging way. To help with these issues, the agreement incorporates specific obligations relating to the publication of the advertisements and an express licence.
The website operator will want assurances that the publication of the advertising materials will not create any liabilities. The agreement includes a set of warranties and indemnities to provide comfort to the operator on this point.Ask about this document
