4.2. Supply Partner Representations and Warranties. Supply Partner represents and warrants that:
4.2.1. all Property and Ad Inventory complies with all applicable laws and regulations, including criminal code, data protection laws, consumer laws, youth protection provisions, and industry self-regulatory guidelines, such as the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Self-Regulatory Principles or similar self-regulatory guidelines for mobile advertising in countries in which Users of the Property are situated, that such Property does not contain or promote any illegal content and/or any Prohibited Content, and that Supply Partner is solely and exclusively responsible for the Property and Ad Inventory;
4.2.2. it shall not, and shall not permit, assist, or encourage any Third Party to, violate any Intellectual Property Rights or otherwise violate or breach any duty toward, or rights of, any person or entity, including without limitation rights of privacy and publicity; via the Property and/or Ad Inventory;
4.2.3. it shall not, and shall not permit, assist, or encourage any Third Party to, engage in Fraud; and
4.2.4. it will not issue Ad Requests for any Inventory and/or Property containing Fraud or violating Fyber’s Content Guidelines published on the Fyber website at www.fyber.com/legal/supply-content-guidelines/, as may be amended by Fyber from time to time.

To the extent Supply Partner makes Ad Inventory or any content relating thereto available to children under the age of thirteen (13) in the United States, or under any other age relevant under the laws of any other country where that Ad Inventory or any content relating thereto is made available to these children, this Section shall apply. Supply Partner represents and warrants that: (i) Supply Partner will comply with all applicable laws and regulations related to providing behavioral advertising to Children, including the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and its rules, as amended from time to time (collectively, “COPPA“) and with all laws, regulations, co-regulations, or self-regulation principles on the protection of minors applying in such other relevant countries, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) in Europe; (ii) except as specifically set forth in a notice described in this Section, the Property is not directed at children under the age of thirteen (13) and Supply Partner does not have actual knowledge that the Property collects personal information from children under the age of thirteen (13) or under any other age applicable in the relevant country; and (iii) Supply Partner shall not collect or passes to Fyber any personal information for any purpose not permitted under COPPA, GDPR or under the laws applicable to minors in any such other relevant country.

In case Supply Partner does not flag its Ad Inventory accordingly, Fyber will rely on Supply Partner’s representations and reasonably assume that the Ad Inventory is not directed at children under the age of thirteen (13) so that Ads delivered to such Inventory do not need to comply with any COPPA, GDPR or other applicable legislation’s requirements.

Supply Partner will include Fyber as a Direct on its App-ads.txt file in accordance with the IAB Tech Lab App-Ads.txt Public Spec (referenced here: https://iabtechlab.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/app-ads.txt-v1.0-final-.pdf).

5.1. Tracking. Fyber’s tracking and reporting regarding Ad Impressions and other payable activities under the Agreement (if applicable), shall calculate the Ad Impressions for the purpose of this Agreement, if not otherwise agreed between the Parties in the Service Order.

If Supply Partner fails to notify Fyber of any such identifiable inaccuracy within such time period, the Account data and the amounts due to Supply Partner shall be deemed correct with regard to such identifiable inaccuracy. Supply Partner further agrees and acknowledges that the determinations of Fyber with respect its reporting and invoices are final where the difference between the evidence provided by Supply Partner and the Account data is less than ten percent (10%), which is considered a deviation in tracking customary in trade and therefore reasonably acceptable by both Parties. If the deviation is 10% or more, the Parties will negotiate in good faith to find an amiable solution.
5.2. Payout Threshold. In the case that the balance of amount(s) payable to Supply Partner is less than US$1,000 or the equivalent thereof in the applicable currency, the balance will be carried forward to the following calendar month until (a) the balance of payable amounts exceeds one US$1,000 or the equivalent thereof in the applicable currency, or (b) within sixty (60) days after the end of the month in which the Agreement is terminated.

5.5. Fraud. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary stated anywhere else in this Agreement, Fyber reserves the right, where it has reason to believe in good faith that Fraud actually took place, to withhold or suspend payment or any other associated revenues, unless and until Supply Partner provides evidence satisfactorily establishing the validity of the Ad Impressions or other payable Users’ activities (if applicable). In addition, Supply Partner will promptly notify Fyber of any actual or suspected Fraud, and cooperate with Fyber in good faith to investigate, prevent and remedy any Fraud.
5.6. Netting Agreement. Supply Partner hereby acknowledges and agrees that Fyber shall have the right to set-off any and all amounts due by Supplier Partner to Fyber or any of its Affiliates, from any amount payable by Fyber or Affiliates to Supply Partner.

Fyber may modify the Services without prior notice, but only with effect for the future (i.e., not retroactively) and provided that the modification is reasonable for the Supply Partner considering its interests. A modification is reasonable for the Supply Partner if it is necessary to adapt the Services to changed circumstances regarding technological developments, market requirements, and any changes of applicable law, and in case of any new features, functions, or services added to the Services. Accordingly, Supply Partner’s right to use the Services under this Agreement is limited to the then-current version of the Services.

Supply Partner shall have no other claims against Fyber due to changes in and to the Services.

Any legally owed German VAT for services supplied by Supply Partner in Germany shall be added to the due amounts in the respective statutory amount.
3. Disclaimers; Limitation of Liability
3.1. Section 7.1 of the MSA shall be deleted and replaced with the following:
“7.1 Arbitration.Quality; Availability of Service(s).
7.1.1 Fyber provides the Service(s) in accordance with the recognized state of the art and the care of a prudent service provider.
7.1.2 If Fyber cannot supply the Service(s) to Supply Partner for reasons beyond the control of Fyber (“Non-availability of Service”), Fyber will inform Supply Partner without undue delay, at the same time indicating – if possible – when Fyber will be able to continue the supply of the Service(s). If the Non-availability of Service has continued for two (2) weeks, Fyber may terminate the Agreement upon written notice to Supply Partner with immediate effect. It is also deemed a case of Non availability of Service within the meaning of the above sentence in case the timely provision of the Service(s) is prevented through force majeure, i.e., events which cannot be reasonably foreseen and averted by taking reasonable precautions by Fyber, such as war, acts of terrorism, internal unrest, forces of nature, sabotage, and attacks by third parties, strikes in areas for the functioning of which Fyber is not responsible and failure of communications networks or systems of a third party for which Fyber is not responsible (this also applies when such a case of force majeure occurs at one of Fyber’s subcontractors or suppliers). Statutory rights of termination of each party in the case of such Non-availability of Service remain unaffected.
3.2. Section 7.2 of the MSA shall be deleted and replaced with the following:
“7.2 Limitation of Liability.
7.2.1 Subject to Section 7.2.2, Fyber shall be liable for damages and futile expenses caused to or incurred by Supply Partner (collectively the “Damages”) pursuant to applicable statutory law.
7.2.2 Fyber’s liability for Damages of Supply Partner (irrespective of the legal nature of the claim, whether under contract, tort, or otherwise)
(a) caused by (i) a breach of material contractual obligations of Fyber under the Agreement with ordinary negligence (einfache Fahrlässigkeit), or (ii) a breach of non-material obligations by employees or vicarious agents of Fyber who are not legal representatives or executive officers (leitende Angestellte) of Fyber with gross negligence (grobe Fahrlässigkeit), shall be limited to those Damages foreseeable at the time of conclusion of the Agreement that typically arise in transactions of this nature;
(b) caused by a breach of non-material obligations under the Agreement with ordinary negligence shall be excluded; and
(c) caused by a defect of the Service(s) that already existed at the conclusion of the Agreement shall be excluded, provided that such Damages were not caused with negligence or willful intent of Fyber or a person for whose behavior Fyber is vicariously liable.
7.2.3 A material contractual obligation of Fyber according to the meaning of the foregoing Section 7.2.2 is an obligation, the fulfilment of which is a prerequisite for enabling the proper fulfilment of the Agreement in the first place and on which the Supply Partner regularly relies and may rely.
7.2.4 Notwithstanding Section 7.2.2, nothing in the Agreement shall limit Fyber’s liability for Damages arising from death or personal injury, from breach of a contractual guarantee as to the quality of goods or services or, in case of any other liability pursuant to applicable mandatory law, where such liability cannot be excluded or limited by agreement between the parties in advance (e.g., under sec. 1 of the German Product Liability Act).
7.2.5 The above limitations to liability also apply to the liability of employees, executive officers, legal representatives and vicarious agents of Fyber.”
4. Modifications to the MSA
4.1. Fyber reserves the right to change or amend the MSA at any time effective prospectively. Any change or amendment will be notified to Supply Partner in a suitable manner (including but not limited to by email or by display of the notice in the Account) at least four (4) weeks prior to its effective date
4.2. Supply Partner has the right to object to any change or amendment of the MSA within two (2) weeks after the date of the notification of the intended change or amendment. In case of a timely objection, each party shall be entitled to terminate the Agreement for cause upon notice to the other party, such termination to become effective upon the date that the intended change or amendment was to take effect. If Supply Partner does not object within two (2) weeks after the date of the notification, the change or amendment shall be deemed accepted by Supply Partner and become an integral part of the Agreement.
4.3. In its notification, Fyber will inform Supply Partner of Supply Partner’s right to object within two (2) weeks, both party’s right to terminate the Agreement in case of objection, and the legal consequences of non-objection.
Section 11.7 of the MSA shall be deleted and replaced with the following:
“11.5 Arbitration. All disputes between the parties arising out of or relating to the Agreement, including any non-contractual obligations arising out of or in connection with it, shall be finally settled in accordance with the Arbitration Rules of the German Institution of Arbitration (DIS) without recourse to the ordinary courts of law. The place of arbitration shall be Berlin, Germany. The arbitral proceedings shall be held in the English language.”
6. Governing Law and Dispute Resolution
6.1. Governing Law. The Agreement and any non-contractual obligations arising out of or in connection with it shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany, without regards to their conflict of laws rules.
