    3. Disputes. If Publisher disputes any payment made under this agreement, Publisher must notify Adnium in writing within 30 days of any such disputed payment.

Publisher(s) shall not alter, sell, or disclose the Adnium tag in any way without Adnium prior written consent.

    2. Recording of Service Counts. Adnium is solely responsible for calculating statistics, including Impressions, click-through rate, revenues, and CPM.

Charges are solely based on Adnium Ad Serving Platform measurements, unless otherwise agreed in writing. Nothing in this agreement or an Insertion Order will obligate Adnium to credit any party. Advertiser acknowledges that any credit card and related billing and payment information that Advertiser provides to Adnium might be shared with companies who work for Adnium, including payment processors and credit agencies, solely to check credit, effect payment to Adnium, and service Advertiser's account.
