1. About the Terms of Service
The Impactify Terms of Service is a contract in electronic form (“Agreement”) between you (“Publisher,” “you,” “your,” and “yourself”) and IMPACTIFY S.à r.l. , 53 Allée Scheffer L-2520 Luxembourg (“Impactify,” “we,” “us,” and “our”). It constitutes the terms and conditions for your use of the Impactify services (“Services”).
Among these Services, Impactify offers floating fixed formats (“Impactify Formats”), that can be understood as formats that stay fixed on scroll on the screen for the users.
The Impactify Services allows you, as a publisher or subaccount holder, to offer and sell elements of a website or application that you designate for placement of ads to any advertiser, demand side platform or advertising network (“Advertisers”). Advertisers may display and serve their ads (“Ad(s)”) on Inventory made available via your websites and applications (“Website(s)”).
By using the Services or registering with us, you are agreeing to the Terms of Service and may use our Services as long as you comply with the Terms of Service.
2. Access to the Services
Your use of the Services is subject to your creation and our approval of an Impactify account (an “Impactify Account(s)”). We have the right to refuse or limit your access to the Services. By submitting an application to use the Services, if you are an individual, you represent that you are at least 18 years of age.. There are two different categories of Impactify Accounts: (i) a main account which will permit to access to all the Services (a “ Main Account”) and (ii) a sub account (a “Sub Account(s)”) which will permit a Sub-Account holder to have access to specific statistics and data reporting collected by Impactify during the execution of the Services: only one Main Account could be created and Sub Account(s) could only be created upon written request by an existing Main Account holder. Impactify reserves the right to refuse the request for opening a Sub Account.
Once the sign-up request for a Main Account has been sent for, Impactify will verify that your Website is eligible to access our Services. We reserve the right to refuse access to our Services to any Website that does not fulfill our conditions, or that isn’t deemed likely, based on its marketing policies, to interest Advertisers. You will receive an email once your Main Account is approved. Confirmation of a sign-up in no way constitutes any form of approval or validation of the Website’s editorial content.
Once your Website has been approved, you will have direct access to tags in your Account that enable you to benefit from our Services. These tags have to be implemented on your Website to allow Ads to be aired. Sub Account opening is available only upon specific request made by a Main Account holder.
3. Using Our Services
You may use our Services only as permitted by this Agreement and any applicable laws. Don’t misuse our Services. For example, don’t interfere with our Services or try to access them using a method other than the interface and the instructions that we provide.
Impactify reserves the right to refuse Websites that do not respect its audience and editorial quality criteria, in its sole discretion.
Impactify will refuse Websites that publish content, or links to content, that are:
- (i) Pornographic, sexually explicit, or violent,
- (ii) Illegal (including stolen copyrighted material and material that infringes or has the potential to infringe the intellectual property rights of another),
- (iii) Reasonably likely to cause harm, or that could be reasonably considered as slanderous or libellous,
- (iv) Abusive, defamatory, racist, xenophobic, negationist nature, which could affecting the honor or the reputation of others, inciting to discrimination and racial hatred,
- (v) Inciting to commit an offence, a crime, a terrorist attack or paying a tribute to war crimes and humanity crimes,
- (vi) Breaches another’s privacy,
- (vii) Allowing people or third parties to provide or obtain directly or indirectly hacked softwares that would infringe the rights of others and the safety of people and goods.
5. Changes to Our Services and to the Agreement
We are constantly changing and improving our Services. We may add or remove functionalities or features of the Services at any time, and we may suspend or stop a Service altogether. At any time, this Agreement can be subject to changes that will be directly published on this page. Changes will not apply retroactively and generally will become effective after they are posted.
You shall entrust the exclusivity of marketing through Real Time Bidding (RTB) of your floating fixed formats inventory to Impactify for the entire duration of contractual relationships. You agree to constantly place the ad tag of Impactify on your websites during all the duration of contractual relationships. You have the possibility to sell ads on Impactify Formats on your websites directly on programmatic sales mode in the context of the “PMP” technological offer proposed by Impactify.
You stay free to monetize your other video formats directly or through your own ad network.
Nevertheless, you have the possibility to set up passback tags coming from other sources, whose marketing mode does not fall under RTB, in order to market the remaining inventory not monetized by Impactify.
You, only as a Main Account holder (i.e. excluding Sub Account holders), will receive a payment for the applicable amounts determined by us for each Ad impression served on any of your Websites within 60 days after the end of each month in which the Ad impressions were served, subject to our prior receipt of valid payment and tax information. Payments will only be made to the Main Account holder, even for Sub Account performances. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the amount accrued for the applicable month is less than $100 (USD), payment will be deferred until the month in which the cumulative balance owed to you exceeds $100 (USD).
You expressly accept, for the duration of the business relationship, the principle of self-billing, meaning that you authorise Impactify to issue an invoice in your name and on your behalf, whenever your Impactify Account balance shows a credit of $100 (USD) or more. Each invoice is accessible online on your Impactify Account. You will be informed by email whenever an invoice is available for viewing on your Account. Invoices may be disputed within 15 days of their issue. Otherwise they will be deemed in compliant and will be binding on the parties.
You expressly accept that payments will only be made by Impactify after we have been paid by Advertisers. Payments to you may be withheld or adjusted to reflect and to exclude any amounts refunded or credited to Advertisers and any amounts arising from invalid activity, as determined by Impactify in its sole discretion. Invalid activity is determined by Impactify in all cases and includes, but is not limited to,
- (i) spam, invalid queries, invalid impressions or invalid clicks on Ads generated by any person, bot, automated program or similar device, including through any clicks or impressions originating from your IP addresses or computers under your control;
- (ii) clicks solicited or impressions generated by payment of money, false representation, or requests for end users to click on Ads or take other actions;
- (iv) clicks or impressions co-mingled with a significant amount of the activity described in (i, ii, and iii) above.
To ensure proper payment, you are responsible for providing and maintaining accurate contact, payment and tax information in your Account. You are responsible for any charges assessed by your bank or payment provider.
You expressly confirm that Impactify is not liable nor responsible for any payment to the Sub Account holder. Any payment due to the Sub Account holder is not Impactify liability.
As between you and Impactify, Impactify is responsible for all taxes (if any) associated with the transactions between Impactify and Advertisers in connection with Ads displayed on your Websites. You are responsible for all taxes (if any) associated with the Services, other than taxes based on Impactify’s net income. All payments to you from Impactify in relation to the Services will be treated as inclusive of tax (if applicable) and will not be adjusted.

12. Duration and Termination
The Terms of Service come into effect as of your acceptance once you signed up on the Impactify platform and this for a duration of one year.
These Terms will be renewed each year by tacit agreement for a similar period of one year. Otherwise, if you do not wish to reconduct the Terms of Service, you should inform Impactify by sending a registered letter with recorded delivery at least one month before the end of the period of renewal. The termination will be efficient at the end of the month of the renewal period following reception of the registered letter.
If you terminate your Main Account and your earned balance equals or exceeds the applicable threshold, we will pay you your earned balance within approximately 90 days after the end of the calendar month in which the Agreement is terminated. Any earned balance below the applicable threshold will remain unpaid.
If Impactify signed contracts with Advertisers serving Ads on your Website for a period beyond the date of termination, you will allow Impactify to keep serving these Ads on your Website for a maximal period of 90 days from the date of termination. In that event, the terms of this Agreement, including payment arrangements, will continue to apply after termination and until the end of the serving of these Ads.
Impactify may at any time terminate your Impactify Account, or suspend or terminate the participation of any Website in the Services for any reason.
