The foregoing categories include any paid-for content purchased under the AAAA/IAB Standard Terms and Conditions.

(ii) Standards And Procedures For Sponsor Content

In addition to the general advertising guidelines established by DMGC, the standards listed below apply to Sponsor Content.

-     All Sponsor Content, regardless of platform, will comply with DMGC's guiding principles:

-     Transparency. All Sponsor Content and marketing messages will be clearly and distinctly differentiated from independent news content.

-     Independence. No DMGC journalist will participate in the production, editing or promotion of customized content or an advertorial. Sponsor agenda and/or concern will neither dictate nor delay editorial direction.

-     Editorial judgment. DMGC maintains the right to reject any program, advertiser or speaker whose presence would compromise the DMGC brand.

-     All Sponsor Content will be appropriately labeled and distinguished from DMGC editorial content in form, function and placement through the use of different type fonts, colors and graphics.

-     Paid programming, advertorials, and sponsored programs/segments will be clearly and prominently labelled as advertising. No Sponsored Content will imply endorsement of any product or service by DMGC, nor will it feature any recognizable DMGC names or logos.

-     DMGC may, in its sole discretion, allow the use of a DMGC Custom Content logo to be used in Sponsor Content. The design and placement of such logo will be at the discretion of DMGC, and any and all such uses shall be subject to DMGC's prior written approval.

-     All Sponsor Content must be approved in advance and in writing by a DMGC Custom Content editor before it appears on any DMGC medium.

-     Sponsor Content is neither produced by nor contributed to by any editorial team member of any DMGC medium, nor does it necessarily reflect the views of the editors of any DMGC medium. A disclaimer similar to the following will be included with all Sponsor Content: "A sponsor paid for the creation and placement of the content on this page. No editorial member of any DMGC medium contributed to any part of its creation, and it does not necessarily reflect the editorial views of DMGC or any of its affiliated entities."

-     DMGC may, in its sole discretion, include a more detailed disclaimer with certain Sponsor Content.

-     DMGC reserves the right to refuse or remove any program, advertiser or speaker that in any way: (i) disparages, defames or discredits DMGC or its products or services or otherwise compromises- in quality or presence- DMGC's brand or (ii) is false, misleading, deceptive or illegal.

-     Where Sponsor Content allows user participation, the moderation and functionality of this element will be determined and implemented solely by DMGC and will be subject to the general Terms of Service or Terms and Conditions for the applicable DMGC medium.

-     In the case of Sponsored events, sponsors will be clearly identified to all on-site participants and in marketing materials tied to the relevant conference or event in language that indicates their role as underwriters. DMGC does not guarantee speaking roles or other on-stage participation for paying sponsors and maintains editorial control and veto power.

With respect to any disputes or claims not subject to arbitration, you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in New York County in the State of New York with respect to any legal proceedings that may arise in connection with the Site or from a dispute as to the interpretation or breach of the Terms.

14. Arbitration.

By using this site in any way, you unconditionally consent and agree that: (1) any claim, dispute, or controversy (whether in contract, tort, or otherwise) you may have against DMGC and/or its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates and each of their respective current or former members, officers, directors and employees (all such individuals and entities collectively referred to herein as the "DMGC Entities") arising out of, relating to, or connected in any way with the website or the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, will be resolved exclusively by final and binding arbitration administered by JAMS and conducted before a sole arbitrator in accordance with the rules of JAMS; (2) this arbitration agreement is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act ("FAA"), 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16; (3) the arbitration shall be held in New York City, New York; (4) the arbitrator's decision shall be controlled by the terms and conditions of these Terms and any of the other agreements referenced herein that the applicable user may have entered into in connection with the website; (5) the arbitrator shall apply New York law consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations, and shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law; (6) there shall be no authority for any claims to be arbitrated on a class or representative basis, arbitration can decide only your and/or the applicable DMGC Entity's individual claims, and the arbitrator may not consolidate or join the claims of other persons or parties who may be similarly situated; (7) the arbitrator shall not have the power to award punitive damages against you or any DMGC Entity; (8) in the event that the administrative fees and deposits that must be paid to initiate arbitration against any DMGC Entity exceed $125 USD, and you are unable (or not required under the rules of JAMS) to pay any fees and deposits that exceed this amount, DMGC agrees to pay them and/or forward them on your behalf, subject to ultimate allocation by the arbitrator. In addition, if you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, DMGC will pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive; and (9) with the exception of subpart (6) above, if any part of this arbitration provision is deemed to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the rules of JAMS, then the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and shall be construed in accordance with its terms as if the invalid, unenforceable, illegal or conflicting provision were not contained herein. If, however, subpart (6) is found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, then the entirety of this Arbitration Provision shall be null and void, and neither you nor DMGC shall be entitled to arbitrate their dispute. For more information on JAMS and/or the rules of JAMS, visit their website at www.jamsadr.com.

Each time you receive or use the Site or anything created using the Site, you shall be deemed to represent and warrant to DMGC and its affiliates that none of you, any person who acts on your behalf or at your direction, or any person on whose behalf you are acting, is: (i) located in or normally a resident of, or the government of, any Excluded Jurisdiction or Sanctioned Jurisdiction; or (ii) a Prohibited Party.
