These terms form part of the Lead Generation Insertion Order (the “IO”) between Sayles Industries and “the Client”.
Version 1.0 (8/15)
- Service. Sayles Industries may serve ads (the “Lead Generation Advertisements”) on website pages that are owned, operated, authorized, or hosted by or for Sayles Industries and its affiliates (the “Lead Generation Websites”) and the network of advertising channels, including all forms of media, applications, and devices, through which Sayles Industries distributes ads, whether on or off the Sayles Industries Company Websites, in its discretion. When a user clicks on a Lead Generation Advertisement, that user will be directed to call or fill out a contact form (the “Form”), which will be created and hosted by or for Sayles Industries, that prompts the user to provide information that may include the user’s first name, last name, email address and telephone number. The information that the user provides is the “Lead,” and any information that personally identifies any individual user is “PII”. Sayles Industries will transmit the Leads directly to “the Client” on the IO.
- Provision of Ad Content. Content for the Lead Generation Advertisements and the Form, which content may include trademarks, service marks, logos and other distinctive brand features of “the Client” (the “Ad Content”) will be provided to Sayles Industries by or on behalf of “the Client”. All Ad Content is subject to Sayles Industries’ approval and must comply with Sayles Industries’ then current specifications and advertising policies, including the lead-time prior to display of the Lead Generation Advertisement. Sayles Industries may reject Ad Content and/or stop displaying any Lead Generation Advertisement at any time, for any or no reason (including, but not limited to, a belief that the display of Ad Content may subject Sayles Industries to liability).
- License; Ownership. “The Client” hereby grants to Sayles Industries, and its third-party service providers and third parties distributing the Lead Generations Advertisements via Lead Generation Websites, a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty free, fully paid license to use, reproduce, copy, modify, encode, store, archive, distribute, transmit, translate, publish and publicly display the Ad Content in connection with the Lead Generation Advertisements, websites, calls and the Form. As between Sayles Industries and “the Client”, “the Client” owns the Leads subject to the limitations set forth herein; provided that “the Client” hereby provides Sayles Industries and its affiliates with a worldwide, royalty free, fully paid license to use the Leads.

Sayles Industries’ measurement of delivered Leads is the sole, official and definitive measurement under this IO. “the Client” may elect to pay by cash, check, or credit card or, to receive an invoice. If “the Client” receives an invoice, payment shall be made to Sayles Industries within 30 days of the date of such invoice. Sayles Industries reserves the right to charge a late fee of the lesser of 1.5% per month or the maximum rate allowable by law in the event that Sayles Industries does not receive payment by the date payment is due. “the Client” will pay Sayles Industries’ reasonable expenses, including attorneys’ fees and costs, incurred in collecting past due amounts. Sayles Industries may suspend performance under any agreements with “the Client” if “the Client” does not make timely payment or if “the Client’s” credit becomes impaired.
- Cancellation, Assignment or Resale. “The Client” may not (1) cancel the IO or (2) resell, assign or transfer any of “the Client’s” rights under the IO. In addition, subject to the license granted to Sayles Industries in Section 3 hereof, the Leads are for “the Client’s” use only, and “the Client” may not disclose, sell, license or otherwise transfer any of the Leads. Sayles Industries may terminate the IO without liability if “the Client” attempts to resell, assign or transfer any of its rights hereunder, or breaches any obligation hereunder and such breach is not cured within ten (10) days of receipt of notice of such breach. Sayles Industries may terminate the IO for convenience with notice to “the Client”. Sections 4, 7-13 and the last sentence of this Section 5 shall survive termination or expiration of the IO.
- Reports. If requested by “the Client”, Sayles Industries will provide a Lead detail report that includes the following: Lead Id, Time Stamp of Lead ID, Confirmation stamp from “the Client’s” system of Leads received and total number of Leads. Such reporting will be provided on a mutually agreed to basis.
- Privacy Policies. Calls and Forms, and any other pages or outlets on which Leads are collected, shall contain a link to, and be governed by, Sayles Industries’ and “the Client’s” respective privacy policies.
- Security. “The Client” will have, at a minimum, industry standard security protocols in effect to protect the Leads and any PII.
- Indemnification. “The Client” will indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Sayles Industries Entities and its and their affiliates and their employees, representatives and agents against any claim, demand, action investigation or other proceeding (“Claim”), including all damages, losses, liabilities, judgments, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs) to the extent the Claim is based on or arises out of (i) the Ad Content or any material, product or service of “the Client’s that appears on any web page linked to from the Lead Generation Advertisement and (ii) any breach of Section 7, 8 or 9 of this IO.

Sayles Industries and its subsequent assignees, if any, may assign, delegate, sublicense, or otherwise transfer from time to time the IO, or the rights or obligations hereunder, in whole or in part, to any person or entity. The IO and these terms are the complete and entire agreement between the parties, and supersede any other agreements (whether written or oral) between the parties, on this subject. The IO may only be amended by a written agreement executed by an authorized representative of each party.
