In any case, the Price shall remain payable in full in accordance with paragraph 10 (Payment).

The Client acknowledges that time is of the essence and that production deadlines may not be extended.
- 8.4 The Client’s approval of the Creative, if applicable, will be TeamRock’s authority to purchase production materials and prepare proofs.

If the parties are unable to reach agreement in relation to any such additional costs, TeamRock shall be entitled to cancel the Contract.

- 10.1 In respect of online Advertisements, TeamRock shall be entitled to issue an invoice to the Client at the end of each calendar month in respect of the Services provided by TeamRock in that month. TeamRock shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to provide the Client with details of the Impressions generated in any Advertising Period or thirty (30) day period (as appropriate) (Impression Report).
- 10.2 The Client acknowledges and agrees that the Impression Report shall be the sole and definitive measurement of the number of Impressions generated in the period covered by the report and shall be binding on the parties, save in the case of manifest error. If the Client reasonably believes in good faith that the Impression Report contains a manifest error (which must be an inaccuracy of at least 10%), the Client shall notify TeamRock forthwith and the parties shall use reasonable endeavours to identify and correct the inaccuracy (if any) and agree in good faith the number of actual Impressions created during the period covered by the Impression Report. The Client shall pay TeamRock the Minimum Price in accordance with TeamRock’s standard payment terms, as amended from time to time, and following agreement of the number of Impressions, the Client shall pay TeamRock the balance of the amount due in relation to the agreed number of Impressions created in that period, plus Value Added Tax.
- 10.3 In respect of Advertisements published via any Medium, the Client shall pay TeamRock the invoiced amount within thirty (30) days from the date of an invoice, unless otherwise specified in the Order.
- 10.4 TeamRock shall, at any time, without prejudice to its other rights and remedies be entitled to specify to the Client alternative payment terms to those set out above. In particular, TeamRock shall be entitled to require payment in advance by the Client or payment earlier than provided for at paragraphs 10.1 or 10.3 if, amongst other things, the result of a credit check on the Client is unsatisfactory to TeamRock or the Client makes a late payment in breach of the provisions of this paragraph 10.
- 10.5 All amounts payable by the Client under the Contract are exclusive of amounts in respect of value added tax chargeable for the time being (VAT). Where any taxable supply for VAT purposes is made under the Contract by TeamRock to the Client, the Client shall, on receipt of a valid VAT invoice from TeamRock, pay to TeamRock such additional amounts in respect of VAT as are chargeable on the supply of the Services at the same time as payment is due for the supply of the Services.
- 10.6 Without limiting any other right or remedy of TeamRock, if the Client fails to pay sums due to TeamRock by the due date for payment, TeamRock reserves the right to suspend the provision of the Services and/or to charge interest on the overdue amount from the due date up to the date of actual payment after, as well as before, judgement at the rate under the late payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 as amended to accrue on a daily basis, compounded quarterly. The Client will be liable for all expenses (including legal expenses) incurred by TeamRock in collecting overdue amounts.
- 10.7 The Client shall pay all amounts due under the Contract in full without any deduction or withholding except as required by law and the Client shall not be entitled to assert any credit, set-off or counterclaim against TeamRock in order to justify withholding payment of any such amount in whole or in part. TeamRock may, without limiting its other rights or remedies, set off any amount owing to it by the Client against any amount payable by TeamRock to the Client.
- 11.1 A party (Receiving Party) shall keep in strict confidence all technical or commercial know-how, specifications, inventions, processes or initiatives which are of a confidential nature and have been disclosed to the Receiving Party by the other party (Disclosing Party), its employees, agents or subcontractors, and any other confidential information concerning the Disclosing Party's business or its products or its services which the Receiving Party may obtain. The Receiving Party shall restrict disclosure of such confidential information to such of its employees, agents or subcontractors as need to know it for the purpose of discharging the Receiving Party's obligations under the Contract, and shall ensure that such employees, agents or subcontractors are subject to obligations of confidentiality corresponding to those which bind the Receiving Party.
