1. Introduction; Scope; Individual Product Terms.
1.1 Introduction. Twitter maintains, operates, and offers a suite of products and services that enable various functionalities for Twitter’s advertising partners. The specific products, services and programs (each, an “Individual Product”) that enable or are related to these functionalities are: (i) the Twitter Ads API Program (as further described in Exhibit A); and (ii) Twitter’s Custom Audiences Program (as further described in Exhibit B). Collectively, these Individual Products are referred to herein as the “Ads Products”. This Agreement governs the use of, and/or access to, the Ads Products collectively, and the Individual Products individually. In addition, to the extent that Company participates in the Twitter Marketing Partner (“TMP”) program in connection with an Ads Product covered under this Agreement, the terms and conditions set forth in Exhibit C will apply to Company.
1.2 Scope. Subject to this Agreement, during the Term, Company may access and use the specific Individual Products to which Twitter has granted or provided Company with access.

If Twitter, Inc. is the contracting entity hereunder, the terms of the Agreement and any dispute relating thereto or between Company and Twitter will be governed by the laws of the State of California, without regard to conflict/choice of law principles. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not apply to the Agreement. If a dispute, claim on controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate arises, Company agrees to provide Twitter with notice of the dispute, and to provide a ten (10) business day resolution period in which Twitter and Company may attempt to work out the dispute informally. If, after the ten (10) business day resolution period, Twitter and Company cannot resolve the dispute, Company agrees to bring any dispute or claim arising out of this Agreement in binding arbitration before a single, mutually agreed upon arbitrator. Company and Twitter hereby expressly waive trial by jury. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its expedited rules for arbitration. Company may bring claims only on its own behalf, and unless Company and Twitter both agree, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims. In a dispute involving U.S. $25,000 or less, the arbitrator will hold a telephonic hearing, unless the arbitrator determines that good cause exists to justify an in-person hearing. Any in-person hearing will take place in San Francisco, California. Judgment on any award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. As an alternative to arbitration, Company may bring its claim in its local “small claims” court if permitted by that small claims court’s rules.

If Twitter International Company is the contracting entity hereunder, the terms of the Agreement and any dispute relating thereto or between Company and Twitter will be governed by the laws of Ireland, without regard to conflict/choice of law principles. The parties agree that neither the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, nor the Uniform Computer Information Transaction Act (UCITA) shall apply to this Agreement, regardless of the states in which the parties do business or are incorporated. Any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, shall be determined by arbitration in Dublin, Ireland before a single arbitrator. The arbitration shall be administered by the Rules of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). Judgment on the Award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. Company and Twitter hereby expressly waive trial by jury. Company may bring claims only on its own behalf, and unless Twitter agrees, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one party’s claims.
15.14 Injunctive Relief. Each party agrees that money damages would be an inadequate remedy in the event of a breach or threatened breach of the provisions in this Agreement protecting Twitter’s intellectual property (including, without limitation, the Twitter Materials) and/or Twitter’s Confidential Information, and that, in the event of such a breach or threat, Twitter, in addition to any other remedies to which Twitter is entitled, is entitled to such preliminary or injunctive relief (including an order prohibiting the other party from taking actions in breach of such provisions), without the need for posting bond, and specific performance as may be appropriate to preserve all of Twitter’s rights.
15.15 Updates. Twitter may update the terms of this Agreement and any policies referenced herein from time-to-time, at its sole discretion, and will provide email notice to Company or posting notice to the URL identified below. Such notice will indicate the effective date of any such updates. The terms of this Agreement will be available for Company to view at any time at https://developer.twitter.com/en/developer-terms/ads-api-agreement. Company’s continued use of any Individual Product(s) after the effective date provided in the applicable notice will indicate Company’s acceptance of such updates.

Exhibit A: Individual Product Terms/Twitter Ads API
Capitalized terms not defined in these Individual Product Terms have the meaning set forth in the main body of the Agreement. To the extent that Company participates in the “Twitter Ads API Program,” the following terms and conditions of this Exhibit A (including Exhibit A-1 and Exhibit A-2) will apply:
1. Twitter Ads API Introduction; Access Levels.
1.1 Introduction. The Twitter advertising application programming interface (API), and the accompanying documentation, code and related materials (collectively, the “Twitter Ads API”) that provides Company with “read/write” access that allows Company to engage in Campaign Management of Twitter Ads and/or with “read” access to certain reporting of Data about the performance of Twitter Ads Campaigns.

2. Ads API License. The license in this section will apply to all classification statuses (i.e., “Limited” and “Advanced”) and API Access Levels. On condition that Twitter approves Company’s application for the applicable classification status, and subject to Company’s continuing compliance with terms and conditions of the Agreement, Twitter grants Company a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license during the Term to: (a) use the Twitter Ads API in accordance with the applicable API Access Level granted by Twitter to Company to implement the Company Service for the purpose of providing a Client’s End Users with access to Data related to such Client’s Twitter Ads Campaigns (and, if Company has “read/write” API Access Level, to enable Campaign Management of Twitter Ads through the Company Service); (b) display the Data in aggregated format solely within the Company Service in accordance with the Analytics Data Display Requirements (defined below in Section 3 of this Exhibit A) to a Client’s End Users solely for the purpose of optimizing such Client’s Twitter Ads Campaigns; (c) modify the Data only as necessary to format it for, and display it, within the Company Service; (d) enable the Company Service to export Data only in a format that Twitter has approved in writing and that complies with the Analytics Data Display Requirements and via an export mechanism that is approved by Twitter in writing; and (e) use and display the Twitter Marks that Twitter makes available for use in connection with the Twitter Ads API and/or Data solely to attribute Twitter as the source of the Data or as otherwise expressly permitted under the Agreement (in each instance, in accordance with the Twitter Trademark Guidelines).
3. Display Requirements, Integration and Other Requirements. Company’s implementation and use of the Twitter Ads API and Data must at all times comply with: (a) the product requirements attached hereto as Exhibit A-1 (“Product Requirements”); (b) the display requirements attached hereto as Exhibit A-2 (“Analytics Data Display Requirements”); (c) all technical documentation for the Twitter Ads API that has been, or will be, provided to Company by Twitter (including, without limitation, any endpoint specifications or requirements); (d) any onboarding processes specified by Twitter related to the Twitter Ads API and Data; (e) the Twitter Policies; and (f) any other guidelines and policies applicable to the Twitter Ads API and Data that may be provided to Company by Twitter.
4. Compliance. Company will abide by all instructions provided or communicated to Company by Twitter, including, without limitation, the limitations on access, calls and use of the Twitter Ads API and any additional limitations or restrictions related to tokens, rate limits, keys, passwords or other login credentials to the Twitter Ads API. Any such instructions are determined by Twitter in its sole and absolute discretion. Company shall comply with any Twitter request to inspect and access the Company Service, including, without limitation, providing Twitter with any Company Service code related to the implementation of the Twitter Ads API, to ensure that the integration of the Twitter Ads API into, and display of the Data within, the Company Service complies with the Product Requirements and Analytics Data Display Requirements, Twitter quality controls and/or other terms and conditions of this Agreement. Twitter may monitor Company’s use of the Twitter Ads API to improve the Twitter Services.
5. Control of Allocation of Twitter Ads Inventory. For clarity, and without limiting the generality of any other term or condition of this Agreement, nothing in this Agreement is meant to represent or imply that Company or the Company Service will have access, via the Twitter Ads API, to any particular inventory or category of Twitter Ads, and Twitter may (in its sole and absolute discretion) elect from time to time, to limit, without restriction, the allocation of Twitter Ads inventory to which Company or the Company Service has access (e.g., without limitation, due to Twitter’s strategic decisions concerning sales channels, direct vs. non-direct client relationships, agency relationships, etc.).
6. Control of Twitter Ads Features, API Calls and Functionality. For clarity, and without limiting the generality of any other term or condition of this Agreement, nothing in this Agreement is meant to represent or imply that Company or the Company Service will have access, via the Twitter Ads API, to any particular Twitter Ads feature, API call or functionality, and Twitter may (in its sole and absolute discretion) elect from time to time, to limit, without restriction, those Twitter Ads features, API calls and/or functionalities to which Company or the Company Service has access (for any or no reason).
7. Geography Data. Company will not (and will not allow others to) use or access the Twitter Ads API to aggregate, cache or store place or other geographic location information contained in any Data or otherwise.
8. Removals. When requested by Twitter, through the Twitter Ads API or otherwise, Company will promptly: (a) delete Data from the Company Service that Twitter reports as deleted or expired; (b) change Company’s treatment of Data that Twitter reports is subject to changed sharing options; and (c) modify Data on the Company Service that Twitter reports has been modified. Company is responsible for the quality of Twitter Ads transmitted to the Twitter Service by the Company Service. Twitter reserves the right to revoke access to the Twitter Ads API and/or, if applicable, remove any specific Twitter Ads from the Twitter Service for any objectionable use by Company or Clients.
9. Updates. Company acknowledges that Twitter may update or modify the Twitter Ads API, from time to time, and in Twitter’s sole and absolute discretion (in each instance, an “Update”). Unless otherwise mutually agreed by Twitter and Company in advance in writing (email to suffice), Company is required to implement and use the most current version of the Twitter Ads API and to make any changes to the Company Service, at Company’s sole cost and expense, that are required as a result of such Update no later than thirty (30) days from the date that Twitter notifies Company of the Update. Company will implement all tools (if any) provided by Twitter to enable Updates, as applicable. Updates may adversely affect the manner in which the Company Service accesses or communicates with the Twitter Ads API or displays Data. Company’s continued access or use of the Twitter Ads API following any such Update will constitute binding acceptance of the Update.
10. Support. Company is responsible for providing all support and technical assistance to Company Clients and their End Users regarding the use of the Company Service (including any issues related to any Ads Product). Twitter is not obligated to provide support or technical assistance directly to Company or any Company Clients or any of their End Users, and Company will not represent to any Company Clients or any of their End Users that Twitter is available to provide such support.
Exhibit A-1: Product Requirements
The Company Service should enable marketers to more efficiently optimize Twitter Ads campaigns, take advantage of Twitter’s real-time conversation, and develop Twitter Ads that improve the user experience.
Accordingly, the Company Service, at all times, will meet the following requirements (as applicable based on Company’s API Access Level):
1. Product Pricing. No Monetization. Paid access to the Company Service must be priced on a fixed or variable percentage of spend fee structure. Company will not charge Clients a premium for access to Twitter Ads and/or Data through the Company Service in excess of Company’s standard rates for the Company Service.
2.1.1 If Company has “read/write” API Access Level, then any pricing reports delivered by Company to Clients and their End Users must clearly state and itemize (i) the Twitter Ads spend in Twitter’s native metrics (e.g., as applicable, CPE/CPF) and (ii) the fees charged for use of the Company Service. In addition, Company must always include CPE or CPF metrics (or other applicable Twitter native metrics) adjacent to last-click attribution metrics (e.g., CPC) or other reporting metrics (e.g. CPM).
2.1.2 Company Service will include a self-serve reporting dashboard that will include the capability for Company to report on all metrics provided via the Twitter Ads API.
2.2 Data. Company will: (i) use commercially reasonable efforts to maintain up-to-date Data within the Company Service in connection with the Twitter Integration (defined below in Section 6.3 of this Exhibit A-1) in accordance with the then-current Analytics Data Display Requirements; and (ii) clearly disclose to Clients and their End Users any material delay inherent in any information regarding Client’s Twitter Ads Campaigns and/or related analytics data.
3. Accounts. Each End User must be given a separate account to access the Company Service, including a unique user name and password.
4. Company Service. Each customized version of the Company Service for a specific Client (including, without limitation, a white-labeled version of Company Service for a specific Client) must be approved by Twitter in advance and in writing (email to suffice for such purposes).
5. Clients and Account Management.
5.1 A Client must be given the ability to quickly and easily disassociate its Twitter Ads Campaigns from the Company Service and regain exclusive, direct control of its Twitter Ads account(s).
5.2 Only a Client and its End Users may be allowed to view such Client’s account data or features via the Company Service.
6. Other Requirements.
6.1 Any Company Service functionality that replicates a Twitter feature will utilize Twitter’s naming nomenclature and feature names, subject to any applicable Twitter Trademark Guidelines.
6.2 Unless otherwise mutually agreed by the parties in advance and in writing, Company will not provide Clients and their End Users or any other third party with access to Data except for the aggregated derivations of such material embodied in the user interface of the Company Service.
6.3 Company may not commercialize, market or provide access to any Twitter Materials to any third parties (including any Clients or their End Users) until the implementation of the Twitter Ads API and integration and display of any Data within Company Service (collectively, the “Twitter Integration”) has been approved in advance by Twitter via the process described in this Section. Company will give Twitter access to the Company Service so that Twitter can review the Twitter Integration. Twitter will inform Company in writing (email being sufficient) if the Twitter Integration is approved or rejected (in Twitter’s sole discretion). Throughout the Term, Company will submit to Twitter any changes to the Company Service that affect the Twitter Integration, which Twitter shall have the right to approve or reject in writing (email being sufficient), in Twitter’s sole discretion.
Exhibit A-2: Analytics Data Display Requirements
These Analytics Data Display Requirements govern how Company can display Data within the Company Service. Company agrees to abide by these Analytics Data Display Requirements at all times.
All campaigns shown in the Company Service that display Data must include the specific Twitter-defined metrics associated with various campaign objectives (each, a “Campaign Objective”), which metrics must be calculated by Company based on the endpoints and formulas located at: https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/twitter-ads-api/analytics/overview/metrics-by-objective (or any other successor URL that Twitter may elect from time to time).
1. The applicable defined metrics for a given Campaign Objective (as described above in the Defined Metrics section of this Exhibit A-2) must be shown every time a campaign is displayed within the Company Service.
2. If the Company Service displays any organic Tweet analytics data, Company must comply with the Twitter Developer Agreement & Policy located at: https://developer.twitter.com/en/developer-terms/agreement-and-policy as it relates to Company’s implementation, use and display of the organic Tweet analytics data.
3. If the Company Service displays metrics about campaigns run on third party networks or by third party publishers (i.e., “cross-channel metrics”) side-by-side with Data, then the following requirements and restrictions apply:
3.1 Any cross-channel metrics displayed alongside the Data in the Company Service can only include the same category of campaign objective metrics as the applicable Twitter-defined Campaign Objective metrics for such campaign (as described above in the Defined Metrics section of this Exhibit A-2).
By way of example only - If an advertiser is running an app install campaign on a third-party network, only cross-channel metrics that are of the same category as the applicable Twitter-defined metrics for the app install Campaign Objective can be shown alongside the Data.
3.2 Aggregating data to display cross-channel metrics is not permitted unless the aggregated metrics can be referenced (across all third-party networks/publishers) against a category of metrics associated with a campaign objective that is the same to the applicable Twitter-defined Campaign Objective metrics (as described above in the Defined Metrics section of this Exhibit A-2). By way of example only - Aggregating total engagements for network A, network B, and network C would not be permitted if engagement rates across all channels are not calculated using the same formulas.
4. If the Company Service displays any category of metrics sourced from third parties other than Twitter (“third-party-sourced metrics”), then the following requirements and restrictions apply:
4.1 The same requirements and restrictions that apply to displaying cross-channel metrics set forth above in Section 3 apply to the display of any third-party-sourced metrics.
4.2. Any third-party-sourced metrics that are displayed alongside Data for a campaign in the Company Service must be the same category of campaign objective metrics as the applicable Twitter-defined Campaign Objective metrics for such campaign (as described above in the Defined Metrics section of this Exhibit A-2). By way of example only:
- If Company displays link click and click-rate metrics from a third-party source, Company will display Twitter’s click and click-rate metrics alongside the third-party-sourced link click and click rate metrics.
- If Company or any of its Clients uses a third-party tracking solution to track website clicks from Promoted Tweets and such data is displayed in the Company Service, Company must show link clicks, click rate, cost per link click and CPA from Twitter (if available) alongside such third-party-sourced data.
4.3 Notwithstanding Section 4.2 of this Exhibit A-2, if the third-party-sourced metrics are from a third-party tracking solution provided by a Twitter Conversion Tracking Partner (as defined below), then Twitter requires that only the Data delivered through the Twitter Ads API (and not any corresponding data delivered by the Twitter Conversion Tracking Partner) is displayed in the Company Service, unless otherwise agreed by Twitter in writing in advance (in each instance). For the avoidance of doubt, Company will not display any data sourced from a Twitter Conversion Tracking Partner alongside, or in place of, any Data delivered through the Twitter Ads API. As used in this Exhibit A-2, “Twitter Conversion Tracking Partner” means an authorized Twitter conversion tracking partner (as designated by Twitter, in its sole and absolute discretion).
Exhibit B: Individual Product Terms/Custom Audiences
Capitalized terms not defined in these Individual Product Terms have the meaning set forth in the main body of the Agreement. To the extent that Company uses or accesses the Twitter Custom Audiences Program the following terms and conditions of this Exhibit B will apply:
1. Custom Audiences.
1.1 Introduction. The Twitter Custom Audiences Program allows for the import and creation of specific segments of users (each a “Custom Audience”) for the targeting of advertising Campaigns on the Twitter Service. The parties acknowledge that in order to utilize Twitter’s Custom Audiences Program, Company, its Client, or a third party service provided approved by Twitter (“Data Partner”) is required to provide Twitter with a hashed set of users or devices (which many include email, cookies, devise IDs, tracking pixels, etc.) in order for Twitter to complete a match with Twitter users and create Custom Audiences. The Custom Audiences created on behalf of a specific client(s) will be stored in each such Client’s Twitter Ads account for use by Company or Client to target, or retarget, as applicable, advertising on the Twitter Service.
1.2 Data Usage and Opt-Out. With respect to any data used in connection with the Custom Audiences Program, in addition to the obligations set out in the Data Protection Addendum found at https://gdpr.twitter.com/en/dpa.html, Company agrees and, if applicable, will ensure that its Data Partner(s) agree that (i) Company or such Data Partner (as applicable) have secured all necessary rights, consents, waivers and licenses for use of such data, and (ii) that Company or such Data Partner (as applicable) have provided any users from whom the data is collected with legally-sufficient notice that fully discloses the collection, use, and sharing of the data Company provides to Twitter for purposes of serving ads targeting to users’ interests, and legally sufficient instructions on how users can opt out of Twitter’s interest-based advertising through the methods described here (https://support.twitter.com/articles/20170405). Data Company uses in connection with the Custom Audiences Program and/or to create a Custom Audience will not include any data from any user who has opted out of having his/her data used by Company, its Data Partner, or any third party on Company’s behalf. If Company receives a user opt-out after such user was included in an audience provided to Twitter, Company must promptly, but no less frequently than once every twenty-four (24) hours, remove such user(s) from any Custom Audience in which such user was included. Company will provide the data in a format selected by Twitter and acceptable to Data Partner (if/as applicable). In addition to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Company’s use of the Custom Audiences program will be subject to the terms of the Twitter Master Services Agreement and Custom Audiences Program T&Cs and applicable policies, including Twitter’s Policies for Conversion Tracking and Custom Audiences, at https://support.twitter.com/articles/20171365.
1.3 Program Deliverables. Company’s access to, and use of, the Twitter Custom Audience Program is subject to its compliance with the technical instructions and program policies provided by Twitter to Company (the “Program Integration Spec”). Company and Twitter will mutually agree on a process for Company to import or upload Custom Audiences to Twitter.
2. Shareable Audiences. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in Section 1.1 hereinabove, as a service to Company, at Company’s request and in Company’s sole discretion, Twitter may allow Company to “share” Custom Audiences created for Company amongst grouped Twitter advertiser accounts and/or Twitter @handles and/or otherwise with third parties on the Twitter Service. As used herein, “sharing” an audience means that Company would instruct Twitter to, without limitation, enable grouped Twitter Advertiser Accounts and/or Twitter @handles and/or third parties to access, use, and target advertising Campaigns against the “shared” Custom Audience. Company represents and warrants that it has all necessary rights and authority to share any such audience data in accordance with the instructions given to Twitter by Company. If Company is providing the audience data, and/or managing the Custom Audiences on behalf of a third party (including, without limitation, a Client), Company represents and warrants that Company has the authority as agent for such party to use any such data on the third party’s behalf, to grant Twitter the rights described herein, and to bind such third party to the terms of this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this Section requires Twitter to make the functionality that enables “sharing” Custom Audiences described herein (or any portion thereof) available at any time to Company or any other third party (including, without limitation, any Client).
Exhibit C: Individual Product Terms/Twitter Marketing Partner (TMP) Program
Capitalized terms not defined in these Individual Product Terms have the meaning set forth in the main body of the Agreement. To the extent that Company participates in the “Twitter Marketing Partner (“TMP”)” program, the following terms and conditions of this Exhibit C (including Exhibit C-1) will apply:
1. Twitter Marketing Partner Program. If Twitter approves Company’s application for “Advanced” classification status, and Company maintains such classification status throughout the Term, Twitter may, at any time, choose, in Twitter’s sole and absolute discretion, to qualify Company as part of the TMP program (or any other successor program name that Twitter may select from time to time). For clarity, Twitter is not required to select Company to participate in the TMP program, regardless of whether Company has achieved or maintains “Advanced” classification status. Furthermore, Twitter may, at any time, choose, in Twitter’s sole and absolute discretion, to terminate or suspend Company’s participation in the TMP program for any reason upon notice to Company, in which case, Company’s eligibility to receive any benefits associated with participating in the TMP program will immediately cease (without any additional notice from Twitter). In addition to the Twitter Trademark Guidelines that govern Company’s use of any Twitter Marks, Company must also comply with the terms and conditions set forth in Exhibit C-1 that govern use of Badges (as defined in Exhibit C-1) provided by Twitter in connection with participation in the TMP program. All Badges (as defined in Exhibit C-1) are deemed Twitter Marks under the Agreement.
2. No Use of Badges Outside of TMP Program. For the avoidance of doubt, if Company is not currently qualified by Twitter (in its sole and absolute discretion) as a member of the TMP program, (i) Company is not eligible to receive any benefits associated with participating in the TMP program, including, without limitation, use of any Badges (as defined in Exhibit C-1) and (ii) Company is prohibited from suggesting it participates in, or has any affiliation with, the TMP program.
