The following Publisher Agreement describes the terms under which MMBR, Inc. ("mmbr.io," "MMBR," "we," "our," or "us"), located at 2035 Sunset Lake RoadSuite B-2, Newark, DE, 19702, USA will allow you to use the MMBR Service to collect revenue from MMBR Transactions. This Publisher Agreement shall be effective as of the date on which MMBR, Inc. ("MMBR") has accepted Publisher’s registration (the "Effective Date"). In this Publisher Agreement, the phrase "this Site" refers to our web site located at mmbr.io, and the phrase "MMBR Service" refers to the service offered at this Site that enables users to pay for Publisher Services (as defined below). “Publisher” refers to Publisher, as well as all employees, agents, and representatives of the Publisher.
While we will work hard to ensure that the MMBR Service is stable and provided in an error-free fashion, certain technical issues may appear from time to time. File security and access cannot be guaranteed due to the nature of our service tightly working in concert with 3rd party services which may fail. Moreover, the user experience which MMBR provides to end customers may change at any time. If you experience an issue with the MMBR Service, or find any bugs you would like to help us squish, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
MMBR Inc. operates a web site currently located at mmbr.io (the "MMBR Site") that enables users ("Customers") to pay for content and/or data, text, graphics, and other materials ("Publisher Services") offered or made available at, or otherwise enabled by, the Publisher’s web site (and its constituent pages) (the "Publisher Site"), for the benefit of the Customer, for which Publisher charges a fee to such Customer (the "MMBR Service").

MMBR reserves the right to change this pricing, for any reason and at any time, without notice and at its sole discretion. No refunds are available for any subscription or trial.

The term of this Agreement will begin on the Effective Date and will continue either while the Publisher continues to actively use the MMBR Service, or until either party specifically terminates this Agreement, whichever comes first.

Those terms of this Agreement which, by their nature, are meant to survive termination shall so survive, including without limitation terms related to ownership of intellectual property, confidentiality, indemnification, and governing law and venue.
Publisher is solely responsible for all activities required by or otherwise related to the Publisher Services, including, but not limited to, all information used in the Publisher Services, and for all fees, costs and other expenses related to such activities, including the taking and fulfillment of orders from Customers. Publisher attests that it shall deliver the Publisher Services directly to Customers and that it shall not use MMBR to enable receipt of payments for anything other than the Publisher Services, nor shall Publisher use MMBR to fund stored-value accounts that can be used to purchase goods or services other than the Publisher Services.
During the Term of this Agreement, Publisher shall deliver, perform or allow access to the Publisher Services, as the case may be, immediately or within such longer time frame specified to all users in accordance with the terms of any agreement(s) and policies between Publisher and the Customer.

MMBR EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT, ERROR-FREE OR UNINTERRUPTED OPERATION AND ANY WARRANTIES ARISING FROM A COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE. NO ORAL OR WRITTEN INFORMATION OR COMMUNICATIONS GIVEN BY MMBR (MMBR, Inc), ITS EMPLOYEES, OR AGENTS WILL INCREASE THE SCOPE OF THE ABOVE WARRANTY OR CREATE ANY NEW OR ADDITIONAL WARRANTIES. TO THE EXTENT THAT MMBR MAY NOT AS A MATTER OF APPLICABLE LAW DISCLAIM AN IMPLIED WARRANTY, THE SCOPE AND DURATION OF SUCH WARRANTY WILL BE THE MINIMUM PERMITTED UNDER SUCH LAW.
Publisher shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless MMBR, its affiliates, and each of their respective officers, directors, managers, members, shareholders, employees and agents (collectively, the "MMBR Indemnities") from and against any and all MMBR Indemnity Losses resulting from, arising out of, or relating to: (i) any breach by Publisher of its representations and warranties herein; (ii) use of any Publisher Services by Customers; or (iii) injury or death, or damage to any property caused by or arising from the negligent acts or omissions of Publisher hereunder.
Publisher acknowledges and agrees that MMBR is provided on an as-available basis, and that these terms of service do not imply an uptime guarantee. Publisher also agrees that MMBR may, from time to time, need to perform routine maintenance or repair of the MMBR Service or update the MMBR Software, and that during such times of maintenance or repair ("Maintenance Downtime"), the MMBR Service may not be available for the Publisher’s use. MMBR will endeavour to minimize the length of Maintenance Downtime, and will endeavour to perform routine maintenance during non-business hours, but MMBR cannot guarantee that the MMBR Service will be available at all times.
The Agreement and any and all disputes arising directly or indirectly from the Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York, without regard to its conflict of law provisions.
The parties hereby irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in New York for all suits, actions or proceedings directly or indirectly arising out of or relating to the Agreement, the MMBR Services, or the MMBR IP, and waive any and all objections to such courts, including but not limited to objections based on improper venue or inconvenient forum.
The rights and remedies of the parties are cumulative and not alternative. No waiver of any rights is to be charged against any party unless such waiver is in writing signed by an authorized representative of the party so charged. Neither the failure nor any delay by any party in exercising any right, power, or privilege under the Agreement will operate as a waiver of such right, power, or privilege, and no single or partial exercise of any such right, power, or privilege will preclude any other or further exercise of such right, power, or privilege or the exercise of any other right, power, or privilege.
No modification of or amendment to the Agreement will be effective unless in writing signed by authorized representatives of both parties.
If any provision of the Agreement is held invalid or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, the other provisions of the Agreement will remain in full force and effect, and, if legally permitted, such offending provision will be replaced with an enforceable provision that as nearly as possible effects the parties’ intent.
All notices, demands, and requests required or permitted to be given under this Agreement shall be in writing and delivered to the respective addresses of the parties as shown in the header to this Agreement (or to such other address as either party may furnish by a notice complying with this Section) personally, by local courier, by a nationally recognized overnight courier, or by United States certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid. Notices shall be effective upon receipt.
In the event of any dispute arising out of or related to this Agreement, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover its reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs.
Neither party shall be liable for any failure or delay in performance under this Agreement which might be due to strikes, shortages, riots, insurrection, fires, flood, storm, explosion, acts of God, war, government action, inability to obtain delivery of parts, supplies or labor, labor conditions, earthquakes, acts of terrorism, or any other cause which is beyond the reasonable control of such party (“Force Majeure Events”).
