Where required by the Online Radio Owner, the Advertiser consents to RNM identifying and pointing out the Advertiser as the source of the Advertising Material.

The Advertiser shall, apart from agreeing the proposed Campaign Price, also stipulate and notify RNM about the maximum cost per play (CPP) rate it is prepared to pay during the Stream Campaign.

This Clause 5.7 sets out the Advertiser’s sole and exclusive remedy in the event of non-availability of Online Radio Streams for the particular Stream Campaign.

5.8 In the case of the Advertiser Instruction being changed during the any Stream Campaign, and RNM being unable to comply with any such change,  RNM has the right to continue the Stream Campaign which as much as possible reflects the required change and, if not possible, complete the Stream Campaign as originally agreed with the Advertiser.
