9 MEDIA NEGOTIATIONS, PURCHASES & BUDGETS
9.1 You authorize AdReady to act on Your behalf for the purpose of purchasing media and to represent itself to advertising media sources, when appropriate in AdReady’s sole discretion, as Your agent of record for the purpose of purchasing media placements in conjunction with the Programs & Services.
9.2 AdReady will act as a principal in purchasing and reselling media placements to You. Upon receiving Your service agreement to purchase media, AdReady will attempt to acquire media that is closest to the requested details in the campaign.

9.3 Budgets provided or requested within the campaign creation process are only approximations. Your actual purchased media costs may be lower or higher than campaign budgets on a daily or monthly basis due to normal traffic fluctuations. Over the course of a campaign that runs at least 30 days, these fluctuations are normalized. Therefore, for campaigns that run 30 days or more, actual costs for each billing cycle will not exceed the billing cycle budget by more than 10%.
9.4 AdReady will use commercially reasonable efforts to contractually require media sources, suppliers and others to fulfill their commitments as they relate to the Programs & Services to be provided to You, but AdReady will not be liable to You for the failure of any media sources, suppliers or other third parties to do so or any destruction, loss or unauthorized use of Client Content by such media sources, suppliers and others.

- 9.5.2 deadlines for submission of material;
- 9.5.3 cancellations;
- 9.5.4 compliance with the media source’s policies regarding approval of advertising content;
- 9.5.5 alternative performance (for instance, through make-goods), refunds, and other remedies;
- 9.5.6 limitations and exclusions of Your remedies; and

By accessing or otherwise using the Site or Services, You represent, warrant and covenant that You shall comply with the policies for AdReady’s media sources and that you have reviewed and accept their privacy policies. AdReady’s media sources and policies may change without notice, so You need to check the applicable media source’s policies before You order any Programs & Services that will involve that media source.
