anyTitle.com Advanced Placement Program Agreement
THIS IS A LEGAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN YOU AND ANYTITLE.COM, A SUBSIDIARY OF GLOBE RECORDS. AND BY SUBMITTING AN APPLICATION TO THE ANYTITLE.COM ADVANCED PLACEMENT PROGRAM YOU ARE AGREEING THAT YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT AND THAT YOU AGREE THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
This Agreement contains the complete terms and conditions that apply to you as a vendor in anyTitle.com's Advanced Placement Program. The purpose of this Agreement is to allow live searches of your site to be listed in a preferential manner on the anyTitle.com search results listings. Please note that throughout this Agreement, "we," "us," and "our" will mean anyTitle.com, and "you," "your," and "yours" will mean the vendor.
Priority Search Fees
A) For sites that offer a usable affiliate program- Our CPM, or "cost per thousand" searches on Page One Results is of $20 CPM, and Page Two Results at $10 CPM. "Usable affiliate program" means one that allows for individual product linking as well as category search linking. The revenue generated by this program is in addition to the affiliate fees that anyTitle.com may earn from your affiliate program.
B) For sites that do not offer an affiliate program- Our CPM, or "cost per thousand" searches on Page One Results is of $40 CPM, and Page Two Results at $20 CPM.
These rates are good through the end of 2005, at which time me may adjust the rates, but not by more than 20% after some re-evaluation. Any changes would be announced with 30 days notice. We may, depending on the success of this program, offer to grandfather these initial rates for vendors who sign up first for this program, should we end up needing to raise our rates. These priority search fees shall not be contingent on whether or not the visitor completes a transaction at your site.
Payment of Fees
You will be billed on a monthly basis. You will be given a report that specifies the date, time, and reference of the search "impression" of your site's product listings. Payments shall be due upon receipt. If payment is not received within 30 days from the statement date, interest will be charged on the balance due at the rate of 15% per year.
Keep us In The Loop on Changes to Your Searches As a vendor in the anyTitle.com Advanced Placement Program, your site will be accessed on a regular basis with search queries. The results that return from your site shall be rendered in a list form, with hypertext links around these list items directing the visitor as exactly as possible to the web page on your site that offers the listed item. Once we have set up our search of your site and have built in the formatting of your returned results to fit our anyTitle.com delivery scheme, we will need to know when any changes are to be made in either the search string variables, or the web page formatting that your site generates when rendering search results. Once we set up the anyTitle.com searches of your site, if we discover that these searches cease to render properly, we have the option to not include those searches until we have opportunity to examine the problem and adjust our searching language to fix the problem.
What You Receive
You will have your search results shown in a "first 20" manner to users of the anyTitle.com Search Service. Since it is up to our visitors to decide what and from whom to purchase products, our Advance Placement Service only gives our visitors access to your search result product listings. Your acceptance into our Advanced Placement Program gives your site's search results preferential listing in that it will appear in the first or second set of results, as selected by you and agreed to by us. The different results on any given set, or page, of results shall be displayed in order of the speed by which they are returned to us. Queries to multiple site searches are sent out is rapid succession, and to achieve the best speed and keep the interest of our visitors, the results are delivered in the order that they return from the searched sites. We cannot guarantee that your site's searches will show first on a set, or page, of results, but if the faster your site can process searches, and the simpler your results page code, the better your chances are of getting your results shown higher on the page.
