Appcast™ Publisher Standard Terms & Conditions for Cost per Click


(Effective – October 20th, 2020)

These Standard Terms & Conditions (the “Standard Terms”) apply to any party who (i) publishes, accesses, or otherwise uses any information or content that Appcast, Inc. (“we”, “us”, “our”, and “Appcast”) makes available to you (“Appcast Content”), including (a) any job search results, pay-per-click advertisements, links, insertion code, other elements that Appcast provides to you for use on your website (the “Publisher Site”) or other Publisher property (“Appcast Elements”), and (b) any information that Appcast makes available to you via any website owned by Appcast (an “Appcast Site”, and such information “Appcast Site Information”); or (ii) otherwise assents to these Standard Terms. The Standard Terms govern your use of and access to (i) the Appcast Content and (ii) any Appcast Site. All such persons subject to these terms are referred to herein as “you”, “your”, or “Publisher”. By accessing or using any Appcast Content or any Appcast Site, you accept these Standard Terms in their entirety and without modification. These Standard Terms constitute a binding agreement between you and Appcast.

These Standard Terms incorporate by reference any other Appcast terms (found here) that may apply to your use of and access to any Appcast Content or Appcast Site (“Other Appcast Terms”). In the event of any conflict between these Standard Terms and Other Appcast Terms, these Standard Terms will govern.

We may amend these Standard Terms at any time. By continuing to access or use any Appcast Content or Appcast Site following such amendment, you agree to such amended Standard Terms.

Services

Subject to these Standard Terms, you will provide Appcast access to your website (the “Publisher Site”) and will permit Appcast to upload Appcast Elements to the Publisher Site. The foregoing services and any publishing by you of any Appcast Elements are collectively referred to herein as the “Services”.

In accordance with the foregoing, Appcast grants you permission to publish the Appcast Elements subject to these Standard Terms. Any Appcast Elements may only appear on the Publisher Site or other Publisher property at URLs that Appcast has reviewed and accepted for participation (“Approved URLs”). You will use the Appcast Elements solely to provide the Services and in accordance with these Standard Terms. You will use any Appcast Site Information solely in connection with providing the Services and in accordance with these Standard Terms.

Fees And Payment

You and Appcast agree to payment on a cost-per-click basis, Appcast will pay to you a fee for each Appcast Driven Click (defined below) submitted to a customer of Appcast. “Appcast Driven Click” means a complete click on a Qualifying Link. A “Qualifying Link” means a link displayed at an Approved URL directing a user to a job using an Appcast Element. The fee for each Appcast Driven Click will be the cost-per-click designated by Appcast from time to time. Appcast will calculate any and all fees based on data collected via the Appcast system, which you agree will be the sole system of record for determining the number of Appcast Driven Clicks and corresponding fees. Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) Appcast shall not owe any fees for any artificial or fraudulent clicks as determined by Appcast, and you will refund Appcast for any payment submitted for any such artificial or fraudulent clicks; (ii) you shall not be compensated for any transactions generated by you or any party acting on your behalf; and (iii) all fees shall be determined by Appcast in its sole discretion. We will pay all fees on a monthly basis. In the event that a user of the Site clicks on a job advertisement to apply for an expired job, Appcast will have no payment obligation to you. Nothing herein absolves the employer from their financial obligations to pay you. For avoidance of doubt, in no event shall Appcast be obligated to remit payments to you if Appcast has not yet received full and satisfactory payment for all prior payments from the advertiser. You agree that you are ultimately obligated to collect payment from the advertiser and Appcast is acting solely as an agent for you in collecting payments from the advertiser.

(Revised and Effective – January 29th, 2021)

Dear Customer,

These Terms of Use govern use of the Appcast website and services. By accessing and continuing to use the Appcast website and services after having an opportunity to review these Terms of Use, you accept the Terms of Use in their entirety and without modification. These Terms of Use constitute a binding agreement between (1) you and the company or organization that employs you (collectively referred to as “you” and “your”) and (2) Appcast, Inc. (referred to herein as “Appcast,” “we,” “us” and “our”). If you do not agree with these Terms of Use, please do not use the Appcast website or services.

We may amend these Terms of Use by posting an amended version on the then-current Appcast website and providing you with written notice via electronic means of such amended terms. By continuing to use the website and services following such amendment, you agree to the Terms of Use then posted and that such new Terms of Use will result in an addendum to this agreement.

1. License to Use Services

Subject to and conditional upon your compliance with these Terms of Use, Appcast provides you with access to our website www.appcast.io (the “Site”) and grants to you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, right and license to use certain services and functionality we may make available to you from time to time via the Site or via a related mobile application, including without limitation, an online job ad exchange service that enables you to upload and promote job ads via a network of websites (as described more completely below, the “Services”). You may authorize your employees and authorized agents (collectively, “Users”) to access and use the Services on your behalf, provided that you will be and remain fully responsible and liable for the acts and omissions of all such Users.

2. Description of Services

Users have access to the following Services, in a format and according to the technical means that we deem the most appropriate.

2.1 Job Ad Platform Service

Appcast shall provision a license to use an online job ad exchange service that enables Customer to upload and promote job ads via a network of websites (the “Appcast Job Ad Platform”) for the exclusive use by you and your Users for the sole purpose of posting and managing your job advertisements to the Appcast Publisher Network (as defined below ). Management of job advertisements via the Job Ad Platform may include: setting per applicant and/or per click pricing, minimum and maximum limitations on applicants and/or clicks, adding and removing jobs from the platform, etc.

2.2 Appcast Publisher Network Service

As part of the Appcast Job Ad Platform, you may elect to use the Appcast Publisher Network, a network of online job boards and other online advertising media (“Publishers”) that Appcast selects and makes available from time to time. Selection of Publishers within the Appcast Publisher Network is made in Appcast’s sole discretion. Publishers within the Appcast Publisher Network may elect to display your job(s) to candidates on its platform or provide the job to its partner network to provide candidate traffic to your job. Nothing in these Terms of Use guarantees the display of your job to any or all of the Publishers’ candidate traffic nor does it guarantee candidates will click on or apply for your job or that applications made to your job will be valid, accurate, or complete. 

All clicks and resulting applicants generated from Publishers within the Appcast Publisher Network are done so in a blind fashion, meaning the particular Publisher generating each click or applicant is not disclosed to you.

3. User Responsibilities; Prohibited Conduct

The Services and Site may be used solely by employers seeking job applicants or clicks for job advertisements in accordance with our standard documentation, which may be published by Appcast and made available to you from time to time. You may not use the Services or Site to determine a consumer’s eligibility for: (a) credit or insurance for personal, family or household purposes; (b) employment; or (c) a government license or benefit. Appcast may not be considered an employer with respect to your use of the Site or Services and we are not responsible for any employment decisions made by any person or entity posting jobs via the Site or Services.

You alone are responsible for any communication, message or other content that Users post, upload, submit, transmit or share on the Site or via the Services, including without limitation any advertisements, data, questions, comments, ideas, suggestions or the like (collectively “User Communications”). We do not endorse or sponsor any such User Communications submitted by you or other users of the Site or Services. We reserve the right to terminate, restrict and/or prohibit your use of the Site and Services (including removal of User Communications), in whole or in part, if we determine, in our sole discretion, that you are violating these Terms of Use, or applicable law, rule, regulation or order or that your conduct is harmful to us, our interests or the interests of another user, a third-party provider, merchant, sponsor, licensor, service provider or any other third party. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in our Privacy Policy, all User Communications will be treated as non- confidential and nonproprietary information. Accordingly, please do not post, upload, submit or share any User Communications you wish to be kept confidential or for which you expect compensation by Appcast, acknowledgment or attribution.

You will maintain and comply with privacy policies and practices that comply with applicable law and conform to industry best practices. You represent and warrant that your User Communications will not: (a) be false, inaccurate or misleading; (b) infringe any third party’s copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary rights or rights of publicity or privacy; (c) violate any law, statute, ordinance or regulation (including without limitation consumer protection, unfair competition, anti-discrimination and false advertising); (d) be libelous, threatening, defamatory, harassing, obscene or contain any kind of pornography; (e) contain any viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancelbots or other computer programming routines that are intended to damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept or expropriate any system, data or personal information; (f) create liability for us or cause us to lose (in whole or in part) the services of our Internet service providers or other suppliers; or (g) interfere with the ability of others to enjoy our Site or Services.

Additionally, you represent and warrant that you will not: (h) use any data mining robots, spiders or similar data gathering or extraction methods; (i) violate or attempt to violate the security of the Site or Services; (j) reverse engineer or decompile any part of the Site or Services; (k) aggregate, copy or duplicate any of the Appcast IP or information available via the Site or Services, other than as permitted by these Terms; (l) except for Users, share with a third party any login credentials to the Site or Services; or (m) access data or any part of the Site or Services not intended for you.

You acknowledge that the timely placement of pixels and access to jobs by Appcast relies on the timely communication and action by your applicant tracking system and support career portal vendors.

4. Fees & Payment.

4.1 Cost Per Applicant Fees

Appcast will calculate the fees owed based on data collected via the Services, which you agree will be the system of record for determining the number of Appcast Driven Applications and corresponding fees. We will invoice you for all fees on a monthly basis. Unless you have pre-paid the fees, you will remit payment to Appcast within thirty (30) days after issuance of each invoice.

You will pay to Appcast a fee for each Appcast Driven Application (defined below) submitted to you or your application tracking system. “Appcast Driven Application” means a job application or other conversion event generated by an applicant who navigated to your website or application tracking system after clicking on a job advertisement published via the Services. The fee for each Appcast Driven Application will be the cost- per-applicant designated by us when you use the Services. The purpose is to allow for conversion payments that occur with CPC or other performance events that are not only CPA.

4.2 Cost Per Click Fees
Appcast will calculate the fees owed based on data collected via the Services, which you agree will be the system of record for determining the number of clicks driven by Appcast and the Appcast Publisher Network (herein “Appcast Driven Clicks”) and corresponding fees. For payments related to Appcast Driven Clicks, nothing herein absolves you from financial obligations to Publishers. In the event you do not remit full and satisfactory payment of the fees to Appcast within thirty (30) days after the invoice due date, Appcast may suspend or terminate access to and performance of the Services. In such case, you will indemnify, defend and hold Appcast and its employees, officers, directors, respective agents and representatives harmless from and against any and all loss, cost, damage and expense (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising from Appcast’s refusal to perform services associated to the Services, including any claims asserted by Publishers. For avoidance of doubt, in no event shall Appcast be obligated to remit Publisher payments to any Publisher if it has not yet received full and satisfactory payment for all prior Publisher payments. You agree that you are ultimately obligated to pay the Publishers and Appcast is acting solely as an agent for you in remitting payments to the Publishers. We will invoice you for all fees on a monthly basis. Unless you have pre-paid the fees, you will remit payment to Appcast within thirty (30) days after issuance of each invoice. You will pay to Appcast a fee for each Appcast Driven Click submitted to you or to your website. The fee for each Appcast Driven Click will be the cost-per-click designated by you when you use the Services.

4.3 Fee Changes

Appcast may change the fees and payment policies for the Services by notifying you in writing (including email) at least thirty days before the change takes effect.

Users who do not accept the new fees must cancel their Subscription, if any, and terminate their use of the Services according to the provisions set out in Section 7. Users who continue to use the Services after the new fees become effective will be deemed to have accepted them.

Unless prohibited by applicable law, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless each of Appcast, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, and all of their respective officers, directors, employees and agents, from and against all losses, expenses, damages and costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, resulting from or related to (1) your use of ResumeX, (2) the violation of these ResumeX Terms of Service by you, (3) any violation of any laws or regulations, including the TCPA or any applicable privacy laws or regulations, or (4) any contact you have with a job seeker, including any email, phone call, or text message you make to a job seeker.

ALL RIGHTS NOT EXPRESSLY GRANTED HEREUNDER ARE RESERVED TO APPCAST AND ITS LICENSORS.

3. OWNERSHIP; INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

3.1       Ownership of Intellectual Property. Customer acknowledges and agrees that this Agreement conveys a limited right to use the Service and the Appcast Software and does not convey title or ownership of the Service or the Appcast Software, to Customer. The Service and Appcast Software and related source code, web beacons, pixels, and any and all materials relating thereto, including all associated intellectual property rights, shall remain at all times the sole, exclusive property of Appcast and its licensors.  Customer agrees and acknowledges that the Appcast Software contains the valuable trade secrets and proprietary information of Appcast and its licensors.  Appcast acknowledges and agrees that: (i) Customer Data and Customer Aggregate Data is Confidential and shall not be disclosed to any third party excepted as required for the fulfillment of Service; and (ii) Customer has the right to create derivate works based on the Output for Customer’s internal purposes, and Customer has all right, title and interest in and to such derivative works.

3.2       Suggestions.  Customer grants to Appcast a royalty-free, worldwide, transferrable, sub-licensable, irrevocable, perpetual license to use or incorporate into the Services or Appcast Software any suggestions, enhancements requests, recommendations, or other feedback provide by Customer or any User relating to the Services or Appcast Software.

Customer has a financial obligation to pay Designated Managed Service Publishers.  For avoidance of doubt, in no event shall Appcast be obligated to remit payments to Designated Managed Service Publishers if Appcast has not yet received full and satisfactory payment for all prior payments owed to the Designated Managed Service Publisher from the Customer.  Customer agrees that it is ultimately obligated to remit payment to Designated Managed Service Publisher and Appcast is acting solely as an agent for Customer in collecting payments from the Customer and remitting them to the Designated Managed Service Publisher.

Fees are exclusive of any applicable taxes, including without limitation, sales, use, value-added, and withholding taxes, and Customer shall pay all such taxes when due (other than taxes on Appcast’s net income).  Any bids tracked in a non-US currency, shall be subject to the same payment terms as outlined on Page 1 of this Agreement.  On the day following last day of the month, Customer will use the Wall Street Journal’s reported currency conversion rate, with exception if the last day is a weekend or recognized federal holiday in the country of which the bids occurred in which case Customer will use the next business day.

5. USER DATA

5.1       Customer Data Warranty.  Customer represents and warrants that (a) it has the authority and right to transmit Customer Data to Appcast and that it has procured the consents or provided the disclosures necessary to transmit such data; (b) it has the authority and right and to grant the license under Section 45.2; and (c) the use of Customer Data will not infringe the intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights of any third party.  Customer covenants that it will only supply Appcast with data that Customer has the right to supply.

5.3       Use of Third Party Data at Customer’s Risk.   Appcast shall have no responsibility for the accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability, or appropriateness of Third Party Data, and Appcast shall not be responsible or liable for the deletion, correction, destruction, damage, or loss of any Third Party Data.  Customer acknowledges that use of any Third Party Data generated, obtained or acquired through the use of the Services is at Customer’s sole risk and discretion.  Appcast and its licensors are not liable or responsible for any results generated using Third Party Data.

6.7       DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES.  EXCEPT AS STATED IN THIS SECTION 6, APPCAST AND ITS LICENSORS DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICE AND APPCAST SOFTWARE, INCLUDING ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, COMPLETENESS, ACCURACY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR ARISING FROM A COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE OR TRADE PRACTICE.  APPCAST AND ITS LICENSORS SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTY THAT THE SERVICE OR APPCAST SOFTWARE WILL MEET CUSTOMER’S REQUIREMENTS OR WILL OPERATE IN COMBINATIONS OR IN A MANNER SELECTED FOR USE BY CUSTOMER, OR THAT THE SERVICE OR THE OPERATION OF THE APPCAST SOFTWARE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE.

Customer shall issue each Authorized User a unique user identification code (“User ID”) to enable such Authorized User to access and use the Service as permitted hereunder.  Customer shall revoke the User ID of any Authorized User who ceases his or her employment or contractual engagement with Customer.  User IDs shall not be shared or rotated among Authorized Users or issued on a concurrent-usage basis.  Customer must ensure that only Authorized Users have access to and use the Service.  If the Customer is notified or becomes aware that an unauthorized third party has gained access to or used the Service, Customer shall promptly notify Appcast.

2.3       Restrictions.  Customer shall not (a) use the Service in any manner which is not expressly authorized by this Agreement or which violates any applicable law or regulation, including domestic and international data privacy regulations and employment laws; (b) copy or reproduce any Appcast Software, in whole or in part; (c) modify, translate or create derivative works of any Appcast Software; (d) reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or otherwise reduce any Appcast Software to source code form; (e) distribute, sublicense, assign, share, timeshare, sell, rent, lease, grant a security interest in, use for service bureau purposes or otherwise transfer the Service or Customer’s right to access and use Appcast Software; (f) remove or modify any copyright, trademark or other proprietary notice of Appcast or its licensors on the Output or contained within Appcast Software; or (g) use the Service to market or sell an Ad Exchange . ALL RIGHTS NOT EXPRESSLY GRANTED HEREUNDER ARE RESERVED TO APPCAST AND ITS LICENSORS.

3. OWNERSHIP; INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

3.1       Ownership of Intellectual Property. Customer acknowledges and agrees that this Agreement conveys a limited right to use the Service and the Appcast Software and does not convey title or ownership of the Service or the Appcast Software, to Customer. The Service and Appcast Software and related source code, web beacons, pixels, and any and all materials relating thereto, including all associated intellectual property rights, shall remain at all times the sole, exclusive property of Appcast and its licensors. Customer agrees and acknowledges that the Appcast Software contains the valuable trade secrets and proprietary information of Appcast and its licensors.  Appcast acknowledges and agrees that: (i) Customer Data and Customer Aggregate Data is Confidential and shall not be disclosed to any third party excepted as required for the fulfillment of Service; and (ii) Customer has the right to create derivate works based on the Output for Customer’s internal purposes, and Customer has all right, title and interest in and to such derivative works.

3.2       Suggestions. Customer grants to Appcast a royalty-free, worldwide, transferrable, sub-licensable, irrevocable, perpetual license to use or incorporate into the Services or Appcast Software any suggestions, enhancements requests, recommendations, or other feedback provide by Customer or any User relating to the Services or Appcast Software.

3.3       Aggregate Data. As between Customer and Appcast, Appcast owns all rights, title and interest in and to Aggregate Data.  Accordingly, Appcast may, during the Term and thereafter, use display, transmit, modify and prepare derivative works of Aggregate Data in any media for any lawful purpose, including maintaining and improving the Service and Appcast Software.

3.4       Security. Customer shall take all commercially reasonable steps to ensure that no unauthorized persons have access to the Service or Appcast Software, and to ensure that no Authorized Users shall take any action which would be in violation of this Agreement.  Such steps shall include, but shall not be limited to, imposing password restrictions on use of the Service, securing the Customer’s system, and administering and monitoring use of the Service.

3.5       Reporting. Customer shall promptly report to Appcast any actual or suspected violation of Sections 2 and/or 3 hereof and shall take such further steps as may reasonably be requested by Appcast to prevent or remedy any such violation.

3.6       Relief. Because unauthorized use of the Service is likely to substantially diminish the value of such Service and irreparably harm Appcast and may not be susceptible to cure by the payment of monetary damages, if Customer breaches the provisions of Sections 2 or 3 of this Agreement, Appcast shall be entitled to seek injunctive and/or other equitable relief, in addition to other remedies afforded by law, to prevent or restrain a breach of Sections 2 or 3 of this Agreement. 

4. FEES, PAYMENT, AND TAXES

4.1      Invoices. Customer will receive a single invoice for the Managed Service for activity in the prior month. All invoices shall be due and payable in full within thirty (30) days from the invoice date.  Appcast may charge a late fee on all past due undisputed amounts at the rate of 1.5% per month or, if lower, the maximum rate permitted by applicable law. Customer has a financial obligation to pay Designated Managed Service Publishers.  For avoidance of doubt, in no event shall Appcast be obligated to remit payments to Designated Managed Service Publishers if Appcast has not yet received full and satisfactory payment for all prior payments owed to the Designated Managed Service Publisher from the Customer.  Customer agrees that it is ultimately obligated to remit payment to Designated Managed Service Publisher and Appcast is acting solely as an agent for Customer in collecting payments from the Customer and remitting them to the Designated Managed Service Publisher. If a Designated Managed Service Publisher requires a deposit of funds for Recruitment Media expenditures, Customer shall deposit such funds with Appcast before Appcast makes any expenditures on Customer’s behalf.

4.2       Collections. Customer shall pay all of Appcast’s costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ and auditors’ fees) if legal action is required to collect outstanding balances of undisputed amounts or to enforce any of Appcast’s other rights hereunder or at law.

4.3       Payment Terms; Taxes. All amounts due hereunder are payable in U.S. Dollars. Fees are exclusive of any applicable taxes, including without limitation, sales, use, value-added, and withholding taxes, and Customer shall pay all such taxes when due (other than taxes on Appcast’s net income).  Any bids tracked in a non-US currency, shall be subject to the same payment terms as outlined on Page 1 of this Agreement.  On the day following last day of the month, Customer will use the Wall Street Journal’s reported currency conversion rate, with exception if the last day is a weekend or recognized federal holiday in the country of which the bids occurred in which case Customer will use the next business day.

5. USER DATA

5.1       Customer Data Warranty. Customer represents and warrants that (a) it has the authority and right to transmit Customer Data to Appcast and that it has procured the consents or provided the disclosures necessary to transmit such data; (b) it has the authority and right and to grant the license under Section 45.2; and (c) the use of Customer Data will not infringe the intellectual property rights or other proprietary rights of any third party.  Customer covenants that it will only supply Appcast with data that Customer has the right to supply. 

5.2       License to Appcast. As between Customer and Appcast, Customer owns all rights, title and interest in and to Customer Data.  Customer grants Appcast a non-exclusive, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free,  right to use display, transmit, modify and prepare derivative works of the Customer Data in any media for the sole purpose of providing the Service to Customer during the Term.

5.3      Use of Third Party Data at Customer’s Risk.   Appcast shall have no responsibility for the accuracy, quality, integrity, legality, reliability, or appropriateness of Third Party Data, and Appcast shall not be responsible or liable for the deletion, correction, destruction, damage, or loss of any Third Party Data.  Customer acknowledges that use of any Third Party Data generated, obtained or acquired through the use of the Services is at Customer’s sole risk and discretion.  Appcast and its licensors are not liable or responsible for any results generated using Third Party Data

6.3       Exclusions. Customer acknowledges and agrees that the Appcast Software is an analytics and bidding tool, but it does not determine what Customer ultimately pays for job advertisements. The Designated Managed Service Publisher shall provide the amounts payable by Customer that shall be billed to Customer by Appcast.    

6.4       Remedy for Loss of Customer Data. In the event that there is a loss or corruption of Customer’s Data directly caused by use of or access to the Service (other than the AWS Infrastructure), Appcast will use commercially reasonable efforts to restore or correct such Customer Data promptly.  If Appcast is unable to correct or restore such data, Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be to terminate this Agreement and upon such termination Appcast shall refund to Customer a pro-rated portion of any unused prepaid fees.

6.6       Dependencies. Customer acknowledges and agrees that (a) the Service requires access to and use of the Internet and that the Internet is an unregulated, public network over which Appcast exerts no control and (b) Appcast has no responsibility for operating and maintaining Customer’s servers and their connection to the Internet to access and use the Service.

6.7       DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES. EXCEPT AS STATED IN THIS SECTION 6, APPCAST AND ITS LICENSORS DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE SERVICE AND APPCAST SOFTWARE, INCLUDING ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, COMPLETENESS, ACCURACY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR ARISING FROM A COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE OR TRADE PRACTICE.  APPCAST AND ITS LICENSORS SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTY THAT THE SERVICE OR APPCAST SOFTWARE WILL MEET CUSTOMER’S REQUIREMENTS OR WILL OPERATE IN COMBINATIONS OR IN A MANNER SELECTED FOR USE BY CUSTOMER, OR THAT THE SERVICE OR THE OPERATION OF THE APPCAST SOFTWARE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE.
