Description of Ad Services

Findcan.ca is developed using code from Seekquarry.com. In particular, it uses Seekquarry's keyword advertising solution. The Seekquarry site has a detailed description of how Findcan's keyword advertising works, including ad credit purchase, bid mechanics, and how ads are displayed based on bid amounts. When the Customer purchases an ad listing using ad credits on Findcan.ca, it is "active" from the midnight (Pacific Standard Time) that started the day of purchase for the number of days selected in the Campaign Duration field of the purchased ad listing. A purchased ad listing constitutes an opportunity for the Customer's ad to be displayed on a search results page for one of the keywords listed while the ad listing is active. Seekquarry through the Findcan website provides the Customer with information about how many times the Customer's ad was served and how many times the Customer's ad was clicked while the Customer's ad campaign is active. Seekquarry makes no guarantees that the Customer's ad will be served or that it will be clicked on during this time frame. The likelihood of either event is contingent on many factors such as the popularity of the keywords chosen as well as how well the Customer wrote their ad.

Ad Content

By purchasing an ad listing, the Customer confirms that the ad does not violate the Findcan Terms Restrictions on Use of Service. As Payment Processing is done using Stripe.com, the Customer also confirms that the ad is not for one of Stripe's List of Prohibited Businesses.

Ad Cancellation

Ad listings go into effect from the time of purchase. While an ad listing is active, either party may choose to deactivate/suspend its display through the Findcan user interface. If the Customer deactivates their own ad or if Seekquarry suspends a Customer's ad for a violation of these terms, the Customer agrees not to seek a refund for the remaining active portion of their ad listing. If, on the other hand, Seekquarry suspends an ad for a reason other than a violation of these terms, the Customer may request a refund in ad credits for the remaining portion of their ad listing provided a request via email to chris@pollett.org, Seekquarry LLC representative, is made within 30 days of the ad suspension.

Payment

The Customer will pay all charges incurred in connection with an ad credit purchase at the time of that purchase via a Seekquarry approved mechanism. Currently, payment processing is done via Stripe.com. Charges for a particular ad credit purchase are based on the Quantity of credits selected and their price in US dollars as entered by the Customer on the Findcan Purchase Ad Credits Form. Any portion of a charge not disputed in good faith within 30 days of the charge must be paid in full. Disputes on charges need to be made via email to chris@pollett.org, Seekquarry LLC representative. TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, CUSTOMER WAIVES ALL CLAIMS RELATING TO ANY AD CREDITS CHARGES UNLESS A CLAIM IS MADE WITHIN 30 DAYS OF THE DATE OF PURCHASE. The Customer acknowledges that as Stripe.com is the payment processor, any credit card and related billing and payment information provided by the Customer might be used by Stripe.com or companies that work on Stripe.com's behalf to provide credit checks, effect payments, or collect debts.
