The Terms cover matters regarding your participation in:
- Buying and selling traffic
- Using the Site
Use of the terms "we" and "us" in these Terms means ADOVERLAY.
ADOVERLAY may amend the Terms at any time by posting revised Terms on the Site, and/or sending information regarding the amendment to the email address you provide to ADOVERLAY. You are responsible for regularly reviewing the Site to obtain timely notice of such amendments. You shall be deemed to have accepted such amendments by continuing use of the Site or of your Account after such amendments have been posted or information about such amendments has been sent to you.
By creating an Account, you represent and warrant that you are at least 18 years of age or, as applicable, the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which you reside, and that you possess the legal right and ability to agree to and be bound to these Terms. You agree to be financially responsible for your Account and to comply with your responsibilities and obligations as stated in these Terms and in any policies or procedures posted on the Site, including but not limited to those for deposits of funds, account cashouts, payment methods, and refunds. Accounts are non-transferable.
As part of the Account registration process, you will be required to submit an email address and password and to provide contact and billing information. You agree that you will not knowingly select or use the email address of another person or impersonate another party, use an email address subject to the rights of any other party without authorization, or use an email address that ADOVERLAY, in its sole discretion, deems inappropriate or offensive. ADOVERLAY may refuse to permit you to use a specific Account name or email address for any reason. You are entirely responsible for the accuracy of your information and keeping it up-to-date and for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and contact/account information; failure to do so will constitute a breach of these Terms and ADOVERLAY reserves the right to terminate your Account. You agree to immediately notify ADOVERLAY of any unauthorized use of your Account or any other breach of security of which you become aware, including but not limited to theft or unauthorized disclosure of your password. Furthermore, you understand and agree that you will be liable for any activity performed by anyone using the Site with your Account.
ADOVERLAY reserves the right to terminate or to suspend access to your Account at any time. Reasons include but are not limited to your breach of any of these Terms, any credit or payment issues, if we are unable to verify any information you provide to ADOVERLAY, and if we believe that your actions are illegal, fraudulent, harassing, abusive, or may cause legal liability or other harm for ADOVERLAY, Account holders, or any other party.
Funding Your Account:
You may fund your account in two ways: (1) you can deposit funds into your account via a wire transfer, or PayPal ("Deposited Funds"); and (2) you can earn funds by selling traffic as a publisher ("Earned Funds"). Deposited Funds will appear in your Account balance and be available for you to purchase ads; however, Deposited Funds may not be cashed out. If your Account is inactive for a twelve-month period, your Account balance will be charged as an inactive fee. ADOVERLAY may, but has no obligation to, give you prior notice of the imposition of any inactive fee.

Subject to your payment of the applicable fees and compliance with these Terms, ADOVERLAY grants you a non-transferable, non-exclusive limited license to use the Site (including, if applicable, ADOVERLAY's ad serving code) to buy and/or sell traffic, but not to make any other commercial or other use of the Site or any portion thereof.
Your license is effective until terminated as set forth in these Terms. This license will terminate if you fail to comply with any term or condition of these Terms and ADOVERLAY will have no obligation to provide notice to you of such termination.
