1. Revenue Sharing; Reporting; Payment.
1.1 In consideration of the use of the CPM Data Technology on the Partner Sites and the licenses and other rights granted to CPM under the terms of this Agreement, CPM shall provide Partner with access to certain CPM tools and reports that provide insight and analytics with respect to Partner Sites. In addition, CPM shall pay to Partner a revenue share of the Data Revenue, during such periods during the Term as the CPM Data Technology is Fully Operative (as defined below) on the Partner’s Sites. For purposes hereof: "Data Revenue" means cash proceeds that CPM receives from third parties during the Term (as defined in Section 10) of this Agreement from any sale by CPM of the data from the CPM Cookies generated from Partner’s Sites ("Qualified Data"), calculated on a proportional basis to reflect Partner’s relative contribution through the CPM Cookies to the overall data set being sold; and "Fully Operative" means that the CPM Data Technology is: properly installed on Partner’s Sites, actively placing CPM Cookies on Visitors’ computers, and actively generating Qualified Data.
1.2 For each calendar month during the Term of this Agreement and within approximately thirty (30) days after the expiration or termination of this Agreement, CPM shall provide Partner with a report of the amount of Data Revenue accrued by CPM for the relevant month being reported (each, a "Report"). CPM shall pay Partner its share of the Data Revenues actually collected on a quarterly basis during such quarter within approximately thirty (30) days after the end of the relevant calendar quarter (each, a "Quarter"). Payment of Partner’s share of Data Revenue shall be calculated solely based on records maintained by CPM. No other measurements or statistics of any kind shall be used for such calculation or have any application under this Agreement. All information in the Reports provided to Partner will be Confidential Information of CPM subject to Section 5 of this Agreement. If the Data Revenue share payable to Partner for any Quarter is less than one hundred dollars ($100), CPM will not pay the revenue share until the total amount due is at least $100 or (if earlier) if such amount represents the remaining balance due as of the expiration or termination of this Agreement. Payment of Partner’s share of Data Revenue shall be by check drawn on a US bank in US Dollars. Data Revenue collected by CPM in non-U.S. currencies shall be converted to US Dollars before computing and paying to Partner its revenue share.
1.3 Each Party is responsible for timely and accurate reporting of, and timely payment of, all applicable income taxes relative to its income from this Agreement.
2. Implementation and Operation.
2.2 Except as otherwise expressly stated herein, CPM makes no representations, warranties or guarantees regarding the CPM Data Technology, the CPM Cookies or other CPM Property (as defined below in Section 4.4), the use of the Qualified Data, the number or amount of any payments , which may become payable, to Partner by CPM hereunder.
3. Data Collection. CPM shall have the sole right and discretion to determine, direct and change from time to time which CPM Cookies and/or Qualified Data are collected and generated from the Partner Sites; provided, that, CPM shall not (a) directly or indirectly access, launch, and/or activate any software application, "crawl", "spider", index or use any means other than the CPM Data Technology to obtain Qualified Data in accordance with the terms herein; or (b) collect or attempt to collect any personal offline contact information about Visitors through use of CPM Data Technology on the Partner Sites. Without limiting the foregoing, CPM may at any time disable the collection or use of Qualified Data from the Partner Sites, and Partner will not be entitled to any Data Revenue with respect to such periods of suspension.
4. Cross-Licenses; Use Restrictions; Intellectual Property Ownership.
4.1 Subject to the terms of this Agreement, during the Term, CPM hereby grants Partner a non-exclusive, non-transferable, worldwide, fully paid-up, royalty-free license to install the CPM Data Technology on the Partner Sites solely in connection with the Partner’s performance of this Agreement.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the foregoing, the licenses granted to CPM pursuant to this Agreement shall, with respect to Qualified Data generated prior to the effective date of termination of this Agreement, survive the termination of this Agreement for a period of sixty (60) days following the effective date of termination of this Agreement.

By indicating its acceptance below, Partner acknowledges and agrees that it has the ability to enter into agreements electronically, and that its electronic submissions constitute its agreement and intent to be bound by these Terms and Conditions, and to contract electronically with respect to the CPM Data Technology and Partner’s use thereof.
This Data Partner Agreement (consisting of the online form(s) submitted by Partner (as defined below) during the registration process and the "Terms and Conditions" set forth above, and collectively referred to as this "Agreement") is entered into as of the date this form is electronically submitted (the "Effective Date"), by and between Cross Pixel Media, Inc. ("CPM"), a Delaware corporation having a place of business at 1357 Broadway, Suite 317, New York, New York 10018, and the operator of the web site identified in the form(s) being submitted ("Partner"). CPM and Partner may be referred to individually as a "Party" and collectively as the "Parties".
This Agreement sets forth the terms applicable to Partner’s participation in CPM’s proprietary data collection program, using CPM Cookies (as defined below) and/or other data collected or otherwise generated from Partner Sites (as defined below) and/or third party websites for use in online advertising and marketing campaigns by or for the benefit of third party advertisers (the "Advertising Program").
Under this Agreement, CPM will license to Partner certain HTML tags or other executable code or software technology ("CPM Data Technology") for use on the Partner’s Sites (as defined below).
