Terms and Conditions
Ocast AB, a company incorporated under the laws of Sweden and with Swedish company registration number 556910-7823 ("Ocast"), provides a service (the “Service”) which enables publishers, influencers and others (“Customers”) to create a dynamic media kit profile (a “Mediakit”), on the online market platform www.ocast.com (the “Site”). The Service further enables the collection of information about the offered products, and facilitates the Customer’s contact with buyers of the advertising products. However, Ocast only provides the platform and does not sell the marketed Media kits.
By subscribing to the Service, the Customer accepts these terms and conditions (the “Terms”). Furthermore, visitors who use the Site and who are potential buyers or buyers of products from Media kits (“Visitors”), with or without registration, accept these Terms where applicable. Visitors explicitly confirms to accept what is stated in clause 10.0 in these Terms.
To use the Service, the Customer must register for an account and a subscription. Upon registration, each Customer must specify at least one natural person as the contact person for the Customer. The Customer’s contact person can invite additional users to sign up as users under the Customer’s account. The contact person and the designated Users are jointly referred to as “Users” in these Terms.
The Customer is responsible for ensuring that Users under its account comply with and accept these Terms as well as applicable law. The Terms are considered in effect when the Customer receives a confirmation of registration via e-mail from Ocast. Note that these Terms may change at any given time. In the event of changes, the Customer and Users under the Customer’s account will be informed of such changes by e-mail, via the Website or by other appropriate means.
Customers can register for subscriptions via the Website. Ocast reserves the right to check the Customer’s credit worthiness and the purchaser's authority to represent the Customer, before the subscription registration is accepted. Ocast also reserves itself the right to, in its own discretion, not approve a Customer to the Service.
These Terms, along with any additional agreements (such as subscriptions) between Ocast and the Customer and Users is jointly referred to as the “Agreement”.
2.0 Payment terms etc.
Invoices are due within thirty (30) days after the date of invoice. For late payments, reminder invoices are issued and may include reminder fees and reminder interest in accordance with law. In the event of late payment, Ocast reserves the right to remove the Customers profile and Media kit from the Site and/or exclude the Customer from the Service.
3.0 Termination of the Agreement & removal of ads (profiles)
Ocast may immediately terminate this Agreement, or remove certain profiles, Media kits or information therein or otherwise on the Site, if:
a) the Customer or any of its designated Users breach any of their obligations under the Agreement and the Customer fails to remedy such a breach within ten (10) days from Ocast’s written notification thereof, or
b) the Customer or any of its designated Users use the Service for any unlawful purpose, breaches a third party’s intellectual property right, posts any illegal or otherwise inappropriate information on the Site, or

4.0 Information and security
However, Ocast commits to treating customer information as confidential and agrees not to disclose information about individual Users, or parts thereof, to any third party. Each User of the Service can also request the blocking of username and password by sending an e-mail to Ocast. The Customer is not responsible for any unauthorized use of its User accounts after the block has been requested. Ocast reserves the right, however, even after such a block has occurred, to save and use customer information as may be necessary to detect unauthorized dissemination of information within Ocast. Ocast furthermore reserves the right to, with immediate effect and without obligation of reimbursement, block the Customer’s access to Ocast if the Customer misuses Ocast.
5.0 Information and data - Social channels
Ocast does not store any login information or credentials from social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, Youtube, Twitter etc. Ocast only stores a token given from the social platforms through an API (Application Programming Interface), which enables a Customer to show their statistics on the Site, such as general demographics, geolocation and age statistics from followers on connected social accounts. Ocast does not sell any such data derived from social media channels to third parties (such as ad networks, data brokers, influencers networks or other advertising services), and will only show data for analytics with the consent of the Customer or its designated Users. The data collected is not used by Ocast to identify groups of individuals or to create demographic clusters for the purpose of Ocast’s contact with or targeting of members on or off the connected social media channels.
Canceling a subscription will remove all visible Media kit content from the Service's interface towards other Users, but will continue to be stored on the Ocast servers. For removal of specific Media kit content in the Service, which has been derived from social media channels, please contact Ocast. Ocast will remove such content in accordance with the request of the Customer within twenty-four (24) hours.
For the avoidance of doubt, Ocast does not manage any content on connected social channels. Furthermore, Ocast does not carry out any advertising transactions for our Customers.

However, upgrading and maintenance will, if possible, occur outside of regular business hours. The Customer acknowledges that the communication speed between its Users and Ocast’s server depends partly on the Customer’s choice of data transfer system, and partly on traffic volume.
