Terms of Sale, MTV Online Services 2017
MTV Oy's online services
Advertising space is sold impartially to all advertisers, advertising and media agencies and to other organisations, for named clients and products, who agree to comply with MTV Oy's terms of sale.
MTV Oy reserves the right to move an advertising space or to cancel bookings made for an advertising space, should specific reasons so require, without any liability to pay compensation. The client will be informed of this without delay and at the same time, in its place, MTV Oy will try to provide a new advertising space corresponding to the previous one.
MTV Oy reserves the right to limit the amount of contacts sold to a single campaign should the advertising capacity so require. MTV Oy also reserves the right not to sell campaigns that could not be carried out within the desired campaign period.
There are no limitations regarding the exposure of competitors in the same section, nor will this render MTV Oy liable for compensation. Advance information of any competitors’ campaigns running at the same time will not be given to third parties. Advertising on MTV OY’s Online Services is primarily sold on the impression (CPM) basis. Other pricing models may also apply.
If a client buys several media elements/products at the same time, each of these will be considered as its own independent campaign. A client can provide a maximum of five (5) different sets of material for one campaign. No impression/time guarantee will be given for the different materials of the campaign. The materials can be changed once during the campaign.
The campaign starts at 00:01 on the first day of the campaign period if the campaign materials are delivered to MTV Oy according to delivery deadlines and material specifications.
If campaign materials are not submitted by the delivery deadlines or according to the instructions, MTV Oy is not liable to compensate for the delay of the campaign launch.
MTV Oy grants an impression guarantee for impression-based campaigns. If the campaign does not achieve the number of impressions purchased, the campaign will either continue until the number of impressions is reached, the missing number of impressions will be compensated in the client’s next campaign, or the client will be credited with the missing number of impressions on another of MTV Oy's website or websites in the same price category. MTV Oy will not give monetary compensation.
If at the end of the campaign the number of impressions falls short of the target by no more than 3%, MTV Oy retains the right to extend the campaign automatically to the following day until the number of impressions has been reached.
Campaigns are verified by MTV Oy’s ad serving system.
Collecting data from MTV's online services
In conjunction with the confirmation of the campaign, the client makes a commitment to observe MTV Oy's operational guidelines concerning privacy protection, the Personal Data Act and the collection of data from MTV Oy's online services. You can find the Agreement on collection of data from MTV websites here.
MTV Oy is entitled to interrupt the client's campaign with immediate effect as well as to terminate all contracts between the client and MTV without liability for damages if the client breaches the aforementioned terms and conditions. The client is liable to compensate MTV Oy or the users of its web services in full for any damages caused by failure to comply with these terms and conditions.
Campaigns sold on an impression basis on the mtv.fi website sections Front page, News, Sports, Lifestyle, Entertainment as well as Katsomo and m.mtv.fi will, by default, be implemented with a weekly frequency control of five (5). Audience targeted campaigns are also run with a weekly frequency control of five (5). Campaigns can also be run with other frequencies, the minimum being three (3).
Campaigns that use a frequency of less than five (5) will continue until the number of impressions is reached. An exception is a “Parade” -ad space, where a frequency control of two (2) is used. Special ad formats like “Opendoor” are run with a frequency control one (1).
