ART 4 - FEES AND PAYMENTS
ICDM shall pay the Publisher a fee corresponding to a percentage of the revenues (minus any applicable fees) received by ICDM from third parties for the placement of advertisement on the Publisher website(s). In this regard, the Publisher is informed that since the selling process involves an auction mechanism, it is not possible to predetermine the fees due to the Publisher. The accrued fees will be expressed in Euros and visible daily from the Publisher's account area in the ICDM Portal. However, since auctions can be held in currencies other than Euro, the Publisher is informed that the displayed amounts may vary due to the exchange rates variation. The fees due to the Publisher will be quantified based on the exchange rate prevailing on the 10th day of the month following the reference month.
Unless otherwise agreed, ICDM will pay the fees to the Publisher by bank transfer (or any other agreed digital payment platform like Wise or PayPal) within 30 days after the end of each calendar month from the invoice date.
A minimum amount of Euro 80.00 (eighty euro) is required to issue an invoice. If the payment amount for a given month is lower than Euro 80.00, it will get accrued and be paid once the minimum billing threshold is reached. The payment can be accrued within 24 consecutive months after the last invoice. Older than 24 months' accrued amounts cannot be added to a current invoice. These Terms will continue to apply to you until terminated by either you or ICDM. ICDM may terminate these Terms (including any additional terms and conditions incorporated herein) or suspend your access to the Service at any time if we believe you have breached any of these Terms or if necessary to comply with applicable law.

In the event of termination of the contract, ICDM will pay any credits, as long as they exceed Euro 80.00 (eighty/00), to the Publisher within 90 days from the end of the contract. ICDM reserves the right to make payments only after it has collected the corresponding amounts from the Advertisers. Publisher agrees that only the ICDM detection systems are valid to quantify the fees due. Impressions or clicks generated through the use of robots, automatic software, or similar tools will not be considered valid. Some examples of such invalid clicks or impressions are those (i) originated from IP addresses or computers under the control of the Publisher or (ii) acquired for money, thus misrepresenting users' clicks.
