TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR INTERNET ADVERTISING

Scope. This is a contract (referred to herein as this "Agreement") between PERSIANCITY.COM (hereinafter referred to as "us", "we" and "our") and the customer ("you" and "your") identified on the first page of this document (the "Order") for us to fulfill your order for our Advertising Products identified on the Order. This Agreement consists of the Order and these Terms and Conditions for Internet Advertising, (these "Ts&Cs"). Except as otherwise expressly provided in these Ts&Cs, in the event of any conflict between the terms of the Order or of these Ts&Cs, the Order shall control.

Term. The term of this Agreement commences on the date of execution by you (either in writing or by electronic signature, including recorded oral acceptance of this Agreement of an Order presented by us and shall (subject to our right hereunder to terminate or suspend our performance or remove Advertising Products under circumstances specified in this Agreement) continue until we have fulfilled the Advertising Products specified in the Order for the Initial Term specified in the Order. Unless otherwise provided in the Order and except as provided below in these Ts&Cs, upon expiration of the Initial Term, the term of this Agreement shall automatically renew for a "Renewal Term" unless you or we notify the other of its intent not to renew at least thirty days before expiration of the Initial Term. All services provided during the Renewal Term will be subject to the then-current Terms and Conditions, pricing and other terms for Internet Advertising available on our Web site (such then current Ts&Cs being referred to herein as this Agreement). The Renewal Term will continue from expiration of the Initial Term until termination pursuant to this Agreement. Unless otherwise provided in the Order, either you or we may terminate the Renewal Term, with or without cause, upon thirty days' prior written notice to the other. Neither of us may terminate this Agreement during the Initial Term, provided that we may terminate this Agreement at any time upon notice to you if you breach this Agreement. If you choose to have your Advertising Products removed from any site and/or our services discontinued prior to the end of the Initial Term or Renewal Term, as the case may be, you shall notify us in writing and the unpaid balance for the entire Initial Term or Renewal Term will become immediately due and owing.

Third Parties. You represent and acknowledge that you are entering into this Agreement to obtain the Advertising Products for your own benefit and not for the benefit or on behalf of any third party, including, but not limited to, any of your shareholders, partners, owners, employees, agents or affiliates. However, each of our distribution or fulfillment vendors or internet search engines on which we place your advertising (each, a "Distribution Site") is an intended third-party beneficiary of your obligations hereunder that relate to Advertising Products and may independently enforce each obligation directly against you.

Rates and Payment. Unless otherwise provided in the Order, we will bill you during our first applicable billing cycle after we fulfill your order for Advertising Products and will continue to bill you during each applicable billing cycle thereafter during the term of this Agreement. The billing cycle will be thirty (30) days unless otherwise provided in the Order. We will bill you for Advertising Products for which no rate is specified in the Order at our standard rates for such Advertising Products at the time that we provide such Advertising Products. Any rates specified in the Order will apply during the Initial Term only. Unless you or we terminate this Agreement at the end of the Initial Term, you will be invoiced for each billing cycle of the Renewal Term at our standard rates during such billing cycle for such Advertising Products. Such standard rates may be higher than the rates set forth on the Order. Payments are due on the due date specified on the invoice or, if no payment date is specified, then thirty days after the date of the invoice. We may remove, or (in the case of Advertising Products placed on Distribution Sites) cause to be removed, your Advertising Products and suspend our services hereunder if payment is not received by the due date. Your prompt payment of any costs that we incur to suspend services or remove or cause removal of Advertising Products, or to resume services or replace or cause replacement of Advertising Products, will be a condition to our resumption of services and the replacement of Advertising Product. You acknowledge that no such suspension or removal will extend the term of this Agreement and, therefore, that it will reduce the aggregate time that we fulfill your order. We may charge late payment fees that will accrue at our then-current standard rates or, if lower, the maximum rate permitted under applicable law. You agree to pay any attorneys' fees and costs that our agents or we incur in collecting any unpaid amount. You will pay any sales, use or other local, state, federal, foreign or other taxes or governmental fees arising out of or in connection with this Agreement, other than taxes based on our net income.

Denial of Credit. If your application for business credit is denied, you have the right to a written statement of the specific reasons for the denial. To obtain the statement, you must contact us within 60 days from the date you are notified of our decision and we will send you a written statement of reasons for the denial within 30 days of receiving your request for the statement. Notice: The Federal Equal Credit Opportunity Act prohibits creditors from discriminating against credit applicants on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, age (provided the applicant has the capacity to enter into a binding contract); because all or part of the applicant's income derives from any public assistance program; or because the applicant has in good faith exercised any right under the Consumer Credit Protection Act. The federal agency that administers compliance with this law concerning this creditor is Federal Trade Commission, Equal Credit Opportunity, Washington, DC 20510.

Custom Domain Registration/Ownership of Work Product. If the Advertising Product you have ordered involves the hosting or operation of a Web site, the Universal Resource Locator ("URL") therefore must be registered in our name with a domain registrar of our choosing so we may manage the domain while we host or operate the Web site. If you do not have a URL, we will procure a URL and will pay the applicable domain name registration fees to the registrar and maintain ownership. We cannot guarantee that any URLs and/or domain names you request for your Web site will be available for your use. If none of your requested URLs are available, we will contact you and request alternatives. If you already own the registration for the desired URL, you must transfer the URL to us with a domain registrar of our choosing. If the URL cannot be transferred or you fail to undertake the action we request to cause the transfer, then, in our discretion, we may (but are not obligated to) choose a URL or domain name on your behalf. Upon termination of this Agreement or in the event you are in breach of this Agreement, any Web sites hosted or operated under this Agreement may be disabled, in our sole discretion. We will invoice you for all fees payable in connection with the transfer to you of any URL registered in our name that is related to your Web site if you notify us in writing within thirty (30) days after termination or expiration of this Agreement that you desire such transfer. We will then promptly transfer such URL to you if you timely pay such invoice. If you fail to notify us that you desire such transfer within such thirty (30) day period or fail timely to pay such invoice, then you waive all rights in or with respect to such URL, and you acknowledge that we may allow the registration for such URL to lapse, may retain and use such URL, or may transfer such URL to a third party, without restriction.

Performance Based Advertising Products. We or our vendor will fulfill your performance based Advertising Product including, but not limited to, YPclicks! or YPcalls!. For YPclicks!, internet search engines determined by us, which may include affiliated or syndicated search engine network partners, will provide the contracted number of clicks. We may change search engines from time to time in our sole discretion. You agree that all placements on search engines shall conclusively be deemed to have been approved by you. We or our vendor will continue to fulfill your Advertising Product for the contracted number of clicks, calls, search or other actions (an "Action") or until your budget is exhausted. If the applicable number of Actions has not been delivered or disputed Actions have been credited by us in our sole discretion or your budget has not been exhausted during the Initial Term, we will continue to fulfill your Advertising Product at no additional charge until the applicable number of Actions has been delivered or your budget has been exhausted. Although we will invoice you in twelve installments for the contract amount, we do not guarantee that the Actions will be fulfilled within that timeframe or otherwise during the term of this Agreement. We cannot provide you with (1) the names of the search engines and/or search engine networks to which your advertisements will be submitted and/or (2) the URL and IP address from which clicks or other Actions are made. Our only obligation is that the number of Actions identified in the Order will be provided. We do not guarantee that any clicks (1) will be from potential customers for you and/or (2) will be of any benefit or value to you. You acknowledge that the clicks may be: from adult sites, from adult-sounding URLs, from sites potentially offensive to you, the result of prohibited or improper purposes, and the result of spiders, robots and other automated or mechanical means. We will send or make available periodic reports from us or Distribution Sites regarding the number of Actions we deliver. You agree that such reports and the counts contained therein shall be the conclusive, definitive measurements of our performance, and that they shall determine your related obligations for all purposes of this Agreement. No other measurements or usage statistics from any source whatsoever shall be accepted by us or have any applicability to our obligations or your rights under this Agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 2 of these Ts&Cs, upon fulfillment of your performance based Advertising Product, we will terminate your performance based program unless you and we agree to renew it. If you cancel your performance based Advertising Product or disable your Web site or otherwise impair our ability to complete the Actions, we will invoice you for the remaining months of the Initial Term or retain the amount of any remaining budget as an early termination charge. We have no liability for any Actions you dispute. However, in our sole discretion, we may issue you a credit for additional Actions to be delivered.

Prohibitions, Content and Intellectual Property Rights. The transmission of any unsolicited commercial e-mail messages through our services is strictly prohibited without the prior consent of the recipient. You acknowledge that neither we nor the Distribution Sites generate the content upon a site where your Advertising Product may be fulfilled and that neither we nor the Distribution Sites are responsible for such content. You acknowledge that it is not possible to avoid placing your advertisements on web sites that display adult content, have adult-oriented domain names, or that are primarily intended as gambling sites, you acknowledge that it is not possible to avoid all such placements, and that we shall in no event have any liability to you of any type or nature as a result of any such placement or any other such placement that may be offensive to you. We or any Distribution Site may refuse, remove and/or terminate Advertising Products and our services due to any content that we or a Distribution Site deem for any reason (a) may subject us, a Distribution Site or another party to liability, (b) includes obscene, profane, sexual, violent or other inappropriate content, or (c) is otherwise unacceptable in our or the Distribution Site's sole discretion; provided that we have no obligation to review your advertisements and shall have no liability related to the content thereof. If this occurs, you will remain responsible for payment of all amounts to be invoiced for the then-current term and will not be entitled to any refund or abatement or any extension of the term of this Agreement. Furthermore, you are making the following representations and both we and each Distribution Site are relying upon them: (a) that you are authorized to advertise and display the requested business, product or service, (b) you are a business, not a consumer, (c) that the content of any advertisement is truthful and not misleading, (d) that you are in compliance with all laws and licensing requirements relating in any manner to the goods or services displayed or to your advertisement, and e) that you have the right to use and publish any requested name, address, trade name, trademark, service mark, picture, likeness, reproduction, endorsement, copyrighted or copyrightable item or other content and that such use complies with all applicable laws, license agreements and other obligations. Without limiting any of our other rights or remedies, you agree to notify us immediately in writing at any time that you discover or suspect that any of these representations is not true and correct in all respects. You assume sole responsibility for the protection of any copyrights, trademarks, service marks, trade names and other intellectual property owned wholly or partially by you or which you are authorized to use or display. If we receive notice or documentation demonstrating that another person or entity contests your right to use or display a name, trademark, service mark or other content, we may reject or discontinue the Advertising Products and our services without liability to you until such time you have resolved that dispute with the other party to our satisfaction. As to Advertising Products we create for you, whether in whole or in part, and any derivative work that we create from your content, you acknowledge that we are an author and assign to us all rights in and to any independently copyrightable contribution you might have made to the advertising. You further acknowledge that we retain all right, title and interest, including the copyright, in such Advertising Products and that neither you nor we intend for such advertising to constitute a joint work. You grant us a nonexclusive license during the term of this Agreement, including the right to sublicense, to copy, distribute, create derivative works based upon, publicly display, publicly perform and otherwise use any trademark, service mark, graphics, text or other content you provide to us in connection with our performance of our obligations under this Agreement. Upon termination of this Agreement, we are not obligated to return any of these works to you.

Design of Our Sites, Advertising Products, Statistics and Interruption of Our Services. We and the Distribution Sites may redesign or modify the organization, structure and/or "look-and-feel" of our respective Web sites, Advertising Products, and published set of headings and directories at any time and without notice; we may discontinue or add Distribution Sites at any time in our sole discretion. Although we assign each Advertising Product an internally generated point value and/or seniority date, such assignment is internal to us and does not confer any rights to you. We or any Distribution Site may position your advertisement on any page within the appropriate sites, in any position upon such page, in any sequence and in association with any classified heading or keyword(s) we or any Distribution Site deems appropriate unless otherwise specifically noted in the Order. Unless expressly provided on the Order, neither any Distribution Site nor we make any representation or warranty with respect to traffic or usage statistics regarding Actions on our site or on any Distribution Site or the levels of impressions, cost per click, or click-through rates or the quality or conversion rate for any advertisement. An "impression" means each occurrence of a display of an advertisement. Neither any Distribution Site nor we will have any liability to you and you will remain responsible for all moneys owed to us should there be an interruption in our Web site or any third party site or other interruption in our services hereunder for any period of time, although we may, in our sole discretion, issue credits or extend the term of this Agreement in the event of interruptions lasting several days or longer.

Disclaimer of Warranties. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED IN THE ORDER, NEITHER WE NOR ANY DISTRIBUTION SITE MAKES ANY REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES OR GUARANTEES TO YOU OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, NONINFRINGEMENT OR OTHER WARRANTIES ARISING BY USAGE OF TRADE, COURSE OF DEALING OR COURSE OF PERFORMANCE), REGARDING THE FUNCTIONALITY, PERFORMANCE OR RESULTS OF THE ADVERTISEMENTS OR ADVERTISING PRODUCTS, LINKED SITES, ANY SITE WE MAY CREATE FOR YOU, OR OTHERWISE UNDER OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT.

Assignment. You may not resell, assign, transfer or delegate any of your rights, duties or obligations without our prior written consent, which we may grant or withhold in the exercise of our absolute and sole discretion; in the event we give such consent, the assignee must, without any reservation, assume all of your rights, duties and obligations. Any attempt to resell, assign, transfer or delegate such rights, duties or obligations without our prior written consent shall constitute a breach of this Agreement and shall be of no force or effect. We shall have the right to subcontract performance of our obligations hereunder or to assign or otherwise transfer this Agreement or any of our rights, obligations or duties hereunder to any person or entity at any time.

Notices. All of our notices, demands and other communications must be in writing and will be deemed to have been given (a) if mailed by certified mail, postage prepaid, (b) if delivered by overnight courier, (c) if sent by facsimile transmission and such transmission is confirmed as received, or (d) if sent by electronic mail, and such message is confirmed as received, in each case to the address, fax number or e-mail address specified on the Order for the recipient of such notice. All of your notices, demands and other communications must be in writing and will be deemed to have been given (a) if mailed by certified mail, postage prepaid or if delivered by overnight courier, to our address.

Liability. NEITHER WE NOR ANY DISTRIBUTION SITE NOR ANY OF OUR OTHER VENDORS SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR THE ADVERTISING PRODUCTS FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES RELATING TO LOSS OF PROFIT, LOSS OF INCOME OR REVENUE, LOSS OF GOODWILL, THE REJECTION OR REMOVAL OF ANY ADVERTISING CONTENT, ANY DELAY IN DISPLAYING OR OUR FAILURE TO DISPLAY CONTENT, OR OUR FAILURE TO PERFORM SERVICES. WITHOUT LIMITING THE PROVISIONS OF SECTION 13, IN NO EVENT SHALL OUR LIABILITY FOR MONETARY DAMAGES EXCEED THE AMOUNT YOU HAVE ACTUALLY PAID TO US FOR THE ADVERTISING PRODUCTS OR OTHER SERVICES WITH RESPECT TO WHICH SUCH LIABILITY AROSE. You acknowledge and agree that the provisions of this Agreement that limit liability, disclaim warranties, or exclude consequential damages or other damages or remedies are essential terms of this Agreement and are fundamental to the parties' understanding regarding allocation of risk. Accordingly, such provisions shall be severable and independent of any other provisions of this Agreement and shall be enforced regardless of any breach hereof or other occurrence or condition relating in any way to this Agreement or the Advertising Products. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, YOU AGREE THAT ALL LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY, DISCLAIMERS OF WARRANTIES, AND EXCLUSIONS OF CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OR OTHER DAMAGES OR REMEDIES SHALL REMAIN FULLY VALID, EFFECTIVE AND ENFORCEABLE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THEIR RESPECTIVE TERMS, EVEN UNDER CIRCUMSTANCES THAT CAUSE ANY EXCLUSIVE REMEDY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT TO FAIL OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE. The limitations contained in this Section 13 apply regardless of the form of action, including actions in contract, tort (including negligence), and strict liability.

Exclusive Remedies. If we breach our obligation hereunder to fulfill any Advertising Product or breach any other obligation hereunder, we will make commercially reasonable efforts to fulfill such Advertising Product at a later date on the same or substitute site or internet search engine or otherwise reasonably to cure such breach. THE FOREGOING CONSTITUTES OUR SOLE OBLIGATION AND YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR ANY BREACH BY US OF THIS AGREEMENT (EITHER DIRECTLY OR THROUGH A FAILURE OF PERFORMANCE BY ANY DISTRIBUTION SITE).

Force Majeure. In no event shall we or any Distribution Site have liability or be deemed to be in breach hereof for any failure or delay of performance resulting from any governmental action, fire, flood, insurrection, earthquake, power failure, network failure, riot, explosion, embargo, strikes (whether legal or illegal), terrorist act, labor or material shortage, transportation interruption of any kind or work slowdown or any other condition not reasonably within our control.
