Agent does not represent, warrant or guarantee that any payment will be made by any Advertiser, irrespective of whether the Advertising has been recognized, and Agent shall not be liable to Publisher, in any way, for any non-payment by any Advertiser.

Playwire may withhold payment from you in the event that you do not provide accurate tax information or complete any necessary tax or reporting forms, as determined in Playwire’s sole and absolute discretion. When Playwire has the legal obligation to pay or collect such taxes, Publisher will be invoiced, and agrees to pay the invoiced amount unless Publisher provides Playwire with a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority.
(G) Notwithstanding the foregoing, if an Advertiser files for bankruptcy or any other similar proceeding (a “Bankruptcy”) at any time and for any reason, then Playwire will not be responsible for paying any amounts to you that are not collected as a result of the such Bankruptcy.

These Terms constitute the complete and exclusive agreement between you and Playwire with respect to its subject matter; provided, however, that if you and Playwire enter into a written services agreement or some other written agreement that expressly incorporates these Terms by reference, then these Terms shall be subject to such other agreement as set forth therein. If any provision of these Terms is held unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be reformed only to the extent necessary to make it enforceable and such decision shall not affect the enforceability of such provision under other circumstances, or of the remaining provisions hereof under all circumstances. You and Playwire are independent contractors and no joint venture, partnership, employment, agency or exclusive relationship exists between you and Playwire as a result of these Terms or your use of the Services, Platforms and/or Networks as authorized hereunder. The failure of you or Playwire to enforce any right or provision in these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. You may not transfer or assign these Terms or any rights or obligations hereunder, directly or indirectly, by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of Playwire. These Terms shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon Playwire’s or your respective permitted successors and assigns.
