Section 4. Rejection of Creative; Cancellation.
A. 24/7 Media reserves the right to reject any advertising which is not,
in its sole discretion, consistent with 24/7 Media's standards.
B. In addition, 24/7 Media shall have the right, at any time, to remove
any of Advertisers advertising if 24/7 Media determines, in its sole discretion,
that the Creative, Advertiser Web Content or any portion thereof (i) violates
24/7 Media's then applicable advertising policy, or (ii) is otherwise
objectionable to 24/7 Media, in which event 24/7 Media shall refund to
Advertiser a pro rata portion of the fee which Advertiser has paid to 24/7 Media
for display of the Creative (if Advertiser has paid 24/7 Media a flat fee).

deliver to Advertiser a written notice of cancellation. In the event of such a
cancellation, Advertiser will only be responsible for payment up until the
cancellation date (as set forth in the notice). Should the level of impressions

Advertiser will be responsible for payment based on the planned number of
impressions set forth in the insertion order.

provided herein. Advertising rates are subject to change by 24/7 Media from time
to time; any rate changes will apply to any additional advertising services
requested by Advertiser after such rate change.
