Terms and Conditions
Welcome to MitocGroup.com, a website operated by Mitoc Group Inc (the "Company").
About The Site
The Site provides access to AdTechMedia, an advertising platform with micropayments capabilities for media content monetization (the "Platform").
The "Service" is defined as any service provided or enabled via the Platform.
The Platform empowers publishers and content providers (the "Business Customers") to generate complementary revenue streams that are immune to ad blocking software.
The Business Customers may provide text, images, software, videos and/or other material on their own web sites or web applications, including user-generated material (the "Content").
The Business Customers can easily and seamlessly integrate the Platform into their web sites or web applications, offering their web users (the "Content Consumers") options to either pay for the Content out of their pockets through micropayments or watch advertising to continue consuming the Content for free.
Content Consumers will be required to provide certain information such as first name, last name, and email address, as well as information about their payment gateway accounts, such as (but not limited to) Apple Pay, Android Pay, PayPal, Amazon Payments, Stripe (the "Payment Gateways"). The Payment Gateways will generate time-limited identity tokens, which the Platform will retain for further use.
Also, please note that the Site is under constant development. New features may be added frequently, so it's important to check back to this page for updates.
The Content Consumers are charged for access to the Content by the Business Customers only when they choose to pay using the Platform's micropayments feature. All micropayment transactions within a month are consolidated and, if they meet the minimum payment limit imposed by the Payment Gateways, are charged to the Content Consumers as one transaction to the associated payment option.
The Content Consumers are charged via the web sites or web applications for the Business Customers using the payment option specified on the Business Customer's web site or web application, which may have its own legal terms.
During the first 5 (five) days of the month following the month in which funds from the Content Consumers were received, the Company will consolidate all amounts collected from the Content Consumers in the previous month. Unless otherwise specified in a separate agreement, the Company will retain 30% (thirty percent) of each transaction collected from the Content Consumers (the "Fee") and transfer the remaining balance to the Business Customers.
You can terminate your use of the Service, change your password, and otherwise manage your account using the Site.
We reserve the right to change the Company's Fee. If the Company does change its Fee, the Company will provide notice of the change on the Site or in email to you, at the Companyss option, at least 14 (fourteen) days before the change is to take effect. Your continued use of the Service after the Fee change becomes effective constitutes your agreement to the changed amount.
