ANNEX A: Terms
and Conditions for
Advertising Agreement between Travelzoo and Orbitz, LLC (“Advertiser”)
For August 1, 2002 – July 31, 2003 Program Flight
The following terms and conditions (the “Terms”) shall be deemed to be incorporated into the insertion order/advertising agreement for Advertiser’s August 1, 2002 – July 31, 2003 advertising campaign (the “Insertion Order”):
Terms of payment. This is a cost-per-click agreement, and Advertiser will be billed only for click-throughs actually delivered. Travelzoo will invoice Advertiser at the end of each month during the term of this agreement for click- throughs actually delivered, as set forth n the Insertion Order; provided, however, that the total payments during the term of this agreement shall not exceed $1,980,000, unless otherwise agreed to in writing. Payment shall be made to Travelzoo within thirty (30) days from the receipt of invoice (“Due Date”). Amounts paid after the Due Date shall bear interest at the rate of one percent (1%) per month (or the highest rate permitted by law, if less). In the event Advertiser fails to make timely payment, Advertiser will be responsible for all reasonable expenses (including attorneys’ fees) incurred by Travelzoo in collecting such amounts. Travelzoo reserves the right to suspend performance of its obligations hereunder (or under any other agreement with Advertiser) in the event Advertiser fails to make timely payment hereunder or under any other agreement with Travelzoo.
Positioning. Except for the positions expressively defined in the Insertion Order, positioning of advertisements on Travelzoo are determined by Travelzoo unless Advertiser has objected to certain positions. Travelzoo may, at its sole discretion, remove from the Insertion Order (and substitute with similar inventory) any keyword or category page that it reasonably believes to be a trademark, trade name, company name, product name or brand name belonging to or claimed by a third party.
Usage Statistics. Unless specified in the Insertion Order, Travelzoo makes no guarantees with respect to usage statistics or levels of impressions for any advertisement. Advertiser acknowledges that delivery statistics provided by Travelzoo are the official measurements of Travelzoo’s performance on any delivery obligations provided in the Insertion Order. The processes and technology used to generate such statistics can be audited by the Advertiser or an independent agency. Click-throughs will also be tracked and reported by Advertiser’s third party ad server (currently DoubleClick DART), and Travelzoo will be given access to all third party numbers continuously throughout the length of this agreement. In the event there is a discrepancy of greater than 5% between the click-throughs reported by Travelzoo and the click-throughs reported by advertiser’s third party ad server for any month (“Discrepancy”), Advertiser’s payment obligations shall be reduced by an amount equal to the Discrepancy (provided that Advertiser shall provide documentation of such Discrepancy with its payment).
Renewal. Except as expressly set forth in the Insertion Order, any renewal of the Insertion Order shall be upon mutual agreement only, and acceptance of any additional advertising order shall be at Travelzoo’s sole discretion. Pricing for any renewal period is subject to change by Travelzoo from time to time prior to commencement of such renewal period.
No Assignment or Resale of Ad Space. Neither party shall resell, assign, or transfer any of its rights hereunder without the prior approval of the other party, and any attempt to resell, assign or transfer such rights without such approval shall result in immediate termination of this agreement, without liability to the terminating party.
Limitation of Liability. In the event (1) Travelzoo fails to publish an advertisement in accordance with the schedule provided in the Insertion Order, (2) Travelzoo fails to deliver the number of total page views specified in the Insertion Order (if any) by the end of the specified period, or (3) of any other failure, technical or otherwise, of such advertisements to be delivered as provided in the Insertion Order, the sole liability of Travelzoo to Advertiser shall be limited to, at Travelzoo’s sole discretion, a pro rata refund of the advertising fee representing undelivered page views, placement of the advertisement at a later time in a comparable position, or extension of the term of the Insertion Order until total page views are delivered. In no event shall either party be responsible for any consequential, special, punitive or other damages, including, without limitation, lost revenue or profit, in any way arising out of or related to the Insertion Order/Terms or publication of the advertisement, even if such party has been advised of the possibility of such damages. Without limiting the foregoing, neither party shall have any liability for any failure or delay resulting from any government action, fire, flood, insurrection, earthquake, power failure, riot, explosion, embargo, strikes whether legal or illegal, labor material shortage, transportation interruption of any kind, work slowdown or any other condition beyond the reasonable control of such party affecting production or delivery in any manner. IN NO EVENT SHALL EITHER PARTY’S LIABILITY EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID BY ADVERTISER HEREUNDER.

Representations.

Advertiser agrees, at its own expense, to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Travelzoo and its employees, representatives, agents and affiliates, against any and all expenses and losses of any kind (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs) incurred by Travelzoo in connection with any third-party claims, administrative proceedings or criminal investigations of any kind arising out of publication of the advertisement and/or any material product or service of Advertiser to which users can link through the advertisement (including, without limitation, any claim of trademark or copyright infringement, defamation, breach of confidentiality, privacy violation, false or deceptive advertising or sales practices). Travelzoo agrees, at its own expense, to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Advertiser and its employees, representatives, agents and affiliates, against any and all expenses and losses of any kind (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs) incurred by Advertiser in connection with any third-party claims, administrative proceedings or criminal investigations of any kind arising out; (a) of any content, material, product or service available on a Travelzoo property that was not provided by or obtained from Advertiser (including, without limitation, any claim of trademark or copyright infringement, defamation, breach of confidentiality, privacy violation, false or deceptive advertising or sales practices), or (b) Travelzoo’s breach of any duty, representation, or warranty under this agreement.

Provision of Advertising Materials. Advertiser will provide all materials for the advertisement in accordance with Travelzoo’s policies in effect from time to time, including (without limitation) the manner of transmission to Travelzoo and the lead-time prior to publication of the advertisement.

Travelzoo reserves the right to reject or cancel any advertisement, insertion order, URL link, space reservation or position commitment, at any time, in accordance with its policies generally applicable to all its advertisers (including belief by Travelzoo that placement of advertisement, URL link, etc., may subject Travelzoo to criminal or civil liability).
