1. Domain Monetization Services
ZeroPark is a service that empowers domain name owners and other traffic providers to generate earnings based on appropriate incoming traffic to their domains or other sources, as described herein.
ZeroPark allows Advertisers to bid on available web traffic to redirect it to their own domains, pop ups or other sources. The traffic is redirected from domains and other sources cooperating with ZeroPark and may be generated by desktop or mobile users.
Codewise does not guarantee any effects of Advertiser’s Campaign, in particular Codewise does not guarantee to deliver any number of visitors or Clicks. Advertiser also understands that Codewise does not guarantee sales or sign-ups (i.e., conversions) and will not issue a refund if none are achieved. Codewise does not guarantee any sales and will not be held responsible if sales are not generated.
In no event Codewise shall be liable for any consequential, direct, indirect, incidental, punitive, or other damages whatsoever (including, but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, loss of information or other pecuniary loss) arising out of the use or inability to use Advertiser’s Campaign, even if Codewise or Advertiser has been advised of the possibility of such damages.
For the duration of the contract, Codewise grants the Advertiser the revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable and non-sub-licensable right to use the ZeroPark for own business purposes in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.
1.1 Payment; Refunds; Factors Affecting Payment; Taxes and Withholding; Payment Disputes.
Advertiser prior to buying traffic must deposit funds to his ZeroPark account. The amount of the deposit is solely a decision of Advertiser. Deposited funds are ring fenced within Codewise accounts and within the accounting ledger. To facilitate the depositing of funds, the Advertiser is provided with multiple payment options such as Bank Wire and PayPal. The currency accepted and used within Codewise is United States Dollars. Deposited funds can be used only for purchase of traffic via different types of campaigns available in ZeroPark. Deposited funds do not expire and can be used to purchase traffic at any time. Advertiser may request to obtain a credit limit and can be granted with it base on individual decision of Codewise. Codewise reserves the right to cancel the credit limit in its absolute and sole discretion at any time.
Payments are based on Clicks and depend on Proxy Bidding results.
Advertiser understands and agrees that the statistics system provided by Codewise shall serve as the official record of traffic and Clicks delivered throughout the Advertiser’s Campaign. Other ways of tracking the traffic are acceptable based on individual request from Advertiser and after written approval from Codewise.
B. Factors Affecting Payment.
Advertiser acknowledges and agrees that different funds deposit options – such as Bank Wire, or PayPal – may hold additional costs of transactions which are subjected to change without explicit notice from Codewise; information on additional costs of transactions is always displayed on ZeroPark’s payment screen. All costs related to payments, depositing funds or refunds shall be borne by the Advertiser.
In the event that Advertiser’s site or Landing Site becomes unavailable for any reason (e.g., server hosting the provided URL is down or unavailable, timed out, or shows to be active but with internal server errors, 404 errors and other types of common or uncommon errors associated with the internet, Advertiser’s website, Landing Site, the Advertiser’s network, and/or its underlying infrastructure), Advertiser will not hold Codewise or its partner sites responsible for these errors.
All and/or any web traffic delivered to the Advertiser’s site during this down time will not be refunded.
Codewise cannot be held responsible for factors beyond its control that may interfere with its ability to deliver visitors to the Advertiser’s site. Such factors include, but are not limited to, downtime on Advertiser’s server, overuse of Advertiser’s bandwidth quota (if applicable), errors on Advertiser’s site, pop-up killers, and/or network outages beyond Codewise’s servers.
C. Taxes and Withholding.
Advertiser understands and agrees that taxes with respect to commissions or any other payments made to Codewise hereunder will not be withheld or paid directly or indirectly by Codewise unless Codewise determines in its sole discretion that Codewise or its affiliates may be liable for any such taxes, in which case it shall withhold the estimated amount and notify Advertiser of such withholding. Advertiser understands and agrees that it is Advertiser’s responsibility to pay all applicable local, state, federal, and/or foreign taxes on commissions and other expenses to Codewise pursuant to these Terms of Service. Advertiser agrees to promptly reimburse and indemnify Codewise from any claim or assessment of taxes by any foreign, United States, State of Poland, state, and/or local taxing authority, and any other costs and damages, arising from or in connection with the operation of this Section 1.1.
D. Payment Disputes.
Advertiser understands and agrees to address any questions Advertiser may have with any payment of commissions under these provisions to Codewise within thirty (30) days of the date of such payment, in writing or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Failure to notify Codewise within such period will constitute an acceptance of, and agreement with, the applicable payment.
E. Refunds. You may ask for a refund of the remaining funds on your account by contacting email@example.com. This only includes funds that you have deposited using the payment methods described in 1.1A. This does not include bonuses, or any other form of credit from Codewise. The minimum deposit required is 200 USD. The first deposit is nonrefundable.
The remaining balance of any accounts banned due to advertiser guideline violations will not be refunded.
The Advertiser agrees that Codewise shall not reimburse funds Advertiser already spent on purchased traffic.

Additional Definitions. As used herein, the following capitalized terms shall have the meanings provided as follows:
“Advertiser’s Campaign” means a type of operation by which Advertiser bids on available within Codewise domain or other-source traffic. Campaign has its settings such as name, daily and total budget, geo-targeting, bid maximum price and destination URL which points a webpage, assumed to be owned/managed by Advertiser.
“Proxy bidding” is a Codewise auction mechanism allowing Advertisers to offer their maximum bid on a given traffic without revealing its maximum value to opponent bidder(s) (other Advertiser). Thanks to Proxy bidding, Advertiser pays only outbid price for desired traffic, not stated directly maximum (until another Advertiser outbids his maximum bid).
“Clicks” means a click by an End User. “Clicks” do not include clicks which are invalid as determined by Codewise’s internal tracking system and traffic quality scoring process or for which Codewise does not recognize revenue from its advertiser partners. Invalid Clicks may include clicks (i) generated by automated crawlers, robots or click generating scripts providing traffic which has no intent to sign-up, purchase or otherwise act upon a product or service offering; (ii) multiple clicks on the same advertisement within a brief period of time, or (iii) that an advertiser receives and rejects for a valid business purpose (e.g., a Click which was not generated by an End User).
“Domain Owner Website” means any website associated with a domain name owned by a Domain Owner which participates in the services or features of ZeroPark.
“End User” means a bona fide living human Internet user. An “End User” excludes any person or any mechanical, artificial or fraudulent means (such as a so-called robot, spider, software or scraper) lacking an intention to purchase, sign up or otherwise act upon a product or service of the marketer contained on a Landing Page or Search Results Page.
“Landing Page” means an html page or a framed html page hosted by or on behalf of CODEWISE displaying search links, search results and/or other content from CODEWISE servers or such servers as CODEWISE uses.
“Net Revenue” means Revenue adjusted for any bad debt, net credits or returns from previous payment periods, less any amount CODEWISE determines, in its sole discretion, was the result of improper use of Domain Owner Websites and as such revenue is otherwise calculated or adjusted by CODEWISE to take into account (i) any exclusions set forth in these Terms of Service, (ii) the results of CODEWISE’s traffic quality scoring process and (iii) any other adjustments made by CODEWISE in its sole discretion. CODEWISE may exclude from Net Revenue monies from traffic that originates from countries where traffic is, in the sole discretion of CODEWISE, suspect or difficult to track in the normal course of business or is determined to be invalid on a consistent and regular basis by CODEWISE or its Advertiser.
“Revenue” means estimated gross revenue to be received by CODEWISE for a particular calendar month as a direct result of Clicks on an advertisement or other promotional link attributable to traffic from Landing Pages or Search Results Pages hosted on a Domain Owner Website pursuant to ZeroPark as reported by CODEWISE’s Advertiser as of the end of such calendar month.
“Search Results Page” means an html page hosted by or on behalf of CODEWISE displaying search results pulled from CODEWISE servers (or such other servers as CODEWISE elects to use), which has resulted from a typed in search or a keyword click from and only from a Landing Page. Search Results Pages accessed by End Users through ZeroPark shall be solely through CODEWISE’s servers (or such other servers as CODEWISE in its sole discretion may use, hosted on CODEWISE’s servers or domains, meaning that CODEWISE shall host or on its behalf provide for hosting of all Search Results Pages in response to valid queries entered by End Users).

For purposes of these Terms of Service, “Intellectual Property Rights” means any and all rights existing from time to time under patent law, copyright law, moral rights law, trade secret law, trademark law, unfair competition law, publicity rights law, privacy rights law, and any and all other proprietary rights, as well as, any and all applications, renewals, extensions, restorations and re-instatements thereof, now or hereafter in force and effect worldwide. Advertiser shall not, and shall not allow any third party to: (i) modify, adapt, translate, prepare derivative works from, decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble or otherwise attempt to derive source code from any intellectual property in any way related to ZeroPark or CODEWISE; (ii) affix any unauthorized copyright notice, trademarks or other proprietary rights notices affixed to or provided as a part of any site, or any other technology, software, materials and documentation related to ZeroPark or CODEWISE; (iii) crawl, index or in any non-transitory manner store or cache information obtained from ZeroPark; (iv) transfer, sell, lease, lend, disclose, or use for co-branding without explicit written permission from CODEWISE, any aspect of ZeroPark under any timesharing, service bureau or other unauthorized method or access thereto; (v) directly or indirectly access, launch and/or activate ZeroPark through or from any software application or means other than the Advertiser Website; or (vi) engage in any action or practice that reflects poorly on ZeroPark, CODEWISE or its Traffic Providers, or otherwise disparages or devalues the reputation or goodwill of the same.
All algorithms, methods of computation and data processed by ZeroPark to measure network traffic (in particular Clicks) or used for Proxy Bidding, geolocation or categorization of network traffic or any other data of statistical nature necessary for proper functioning of ZeroPark or features thereof (hereinafter referred to as: “Processed Data”) are and shall remain the sole and exclusive property of Codewise, including all applicable rights to patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, or other proprietary or intellectual property rights inherent therein or appurtenant thereto. All rights not expressly granted to Advertiser herein are reserved to Codewise.
Advertiser’s materials (i.e. ads, campaigns, labels etc.) are and shall remain their sole and exclusive property, including all applicable rights to patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, or other proprietary or intellectual property rights inherent therein or appurtenant thereto.
Advertiser agrees to safeguard and, except for the benefit of ZeroPark, not to disclose to anyone outside ZeroPark any proprietary or confidential information acquired from Advertiser’s access to ZeroPark. Such information includes, without limitation, principles of operations of ZeroPark, business plans, customer lists, operation procedures, trade secrets, design formulas and programming code, know-how and processes, computer programs and inventions, discoveries, and improvements of any kinds (hereinafter referred to as Confidential Information).
Advertiser shall not sell, transfer, publish, disclose, display, or otherwise make available any portion of the Confidential Information to others except as expressly provided for herein. Advertiser agrees to secure and protect the Confidential Information in a manner consistent with the maintenance of Codewise’s rights therein. Advertiser shall use its best efforts to assist Codewise in identifying and preventing any unauthorized access, use, copying, or disclosure of the Confidential Information, or any component thereof, or any of the algorithms or logic contained therein. Without limitation of the foregoing, Advertiser shall advise Codewise immediately in the event Advertiser learns or has reason to believe that any person to whom Advertiser has given access to Confidential Information has violated or intends to violate the confidentiality of the Confidential Information or any other the proprietary rights of Codewise, and Advertiser will, at Advertiser’s expense, cooperate with Codewise in seeking injunctive or other equitable relief in the name of Advertiser or Codewise against any such person. Advertiser agrees to maintain the confidentiality of Codewise’s Confidential Information using at least as great a degree of care as Advertisert uses to maintain the confidentiality of Advertiser’s own most confidential information (and in no event less than a reasonable degree of care). Advertiser acknowledges that the disclosure of any aspect of the Confidential Information, including without limitation ZeroPark or any other Confidential Information referred to herein, or any information which, at law or equity ought to remain confidential, will immediately give rise to continuing irreparable injury to Codewise inadequately compensable in damages at law, and Codewise is entitled to seek and obtain immediate injunctive relief against the breach or threatened breach of any of the foregoing confidentiality undertakings, in addition to any other legal remedies which may be available. In addition, Codewise may immediately terminate Advertiser’s account and all license rights granted herein, in the event Advertiser breaches any of its confidentiality obligations.

Your continued use of ZeroPark after the effective date of any such changes will constitute your acceptance of and agreement to such changes. If ADVERTSER DOES NOT WISH TO BE BOUND TO ANY NEW TERMS, IT MUST TERMINATE THESE TERMS OF SERVICE BY IMMEDIATELY CEASING USE OF ZEROPARK.
Codewise reserves the right to modify ZeroPark and its functions or services at any time in its sole discretion and without any liability. CODEWISE agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize unscheduled modification and maintenance interruptions. However, CODEWISE reserves the right to modify or maintain ZeroPark at any time, with or without notice to Advertiser.
Advertiser shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless ZeroPark Parties from and against all liability, demands, claims, costs, losses, damages, recoveries, settlements, and expenses (including interest, penalties, reasonable attorney fees, accounting fees, and expert witness fees) incurred by ZeroPark Parties, known or unknown, contingent or otherwise, directly or indirectly arising from Advertiser’s breach of any term or provision of these Terms of Service or any way related to Advertiser’s use of ZeroPark, including but not limited to any claim that the Advertiser’s website is owned by someone other than Advertiser or that the website infringes on the intellectual property rights of a third party. CODEWISE shall notify Advertiser of any such claim and shall cooperate with Advertiser, at Advertiser’s expense, in defending or settling such claim. Advertiser may not settle any such claim in a manner that imposes any non-indemnified costs or otherwise adversely affects CODEWISE rights without CODEWISE’s prior written consent. CODEWISE may join in defense with counsel of its choice at its own expense. If Advertiser does not assume the defense of any such claim within thirty (30) days after the date notice of such claim is given, CODEWISE may defend against such claim in such manner as it may deem appropriate at Advertiser’s expense, including, without limitation, settling such claim, after giving notice of the same to Advertiser.
