Network reserves the right to withhold payment or charge back Publisher's account due to any of the foregoing or any breach of this Agreement by Publisher.

To the fullest extent permitted by law, Advertiser waives all claims relating to charges (including without limitation any claims for charges based on suspected invalid clicks) unless claimed within 60 days after the charge (this does not affect Advertiser's credit card issuer rights). Charges are solely based on Network's measurements for the Program, unless otherwise agreed to in writing. Nothing in these Terms or an IO may obligate Network to extend credit to any party.
