The fees payable by Viralize to the Media Partner or by the Media Partner to Viralize are specified according to the CPM mode or eventually according to a different modality indicated in the STS.
All amounts accrued and/or due by the Partner are indicated in the Panel and are net of any tax, levies, and social security and financial expenses (for example, transaction fees and payments) which may be due, and will remain in full to the Partner. In any case, VAT will be applied or not according to the applicable laws and regulations.
At the beginning of each month, the Media Partner who, in the previous month, has reached the Minimum Threshold (as defined in the next Article 8.7) will receive a proforma invoice in the accounting section of the Panel. By the 10th of the month, the Media Partner must issue an invoice of the same amount indicated in the proforma invoice, entering its number and date in the appropriate space on the Panel, and it must be sent to the address email@example.com or loaded in the specific section of the Panel. The invoice should be addressed to VIRALIZE SRL, Via Santo Spirito, 14 – 50125 Florence, VAT no.: IT06355790483. The Media Partner data on the invoice must match the data entered in the Panel. Within 60 days from the date of issuing the regular invoice, the Staff of Viralize will proceed to make the payment of the amount indicated therein. The Media Partners who are not residents in Italy and are registered as an individual EU/non-EU do not have to send any documents. The receipt of the invoice beyond the above-mentioned period will result in a delay of the term of the payment to 60 days from the date when the invoice is actually received.
The Media Partner can choose to receive the payments with Bank Transfer or PayPal and he/she must indicate the payment details in the appropriate section of the Panel and on each invoice. Selecting the Bank Transfer, for Media Partners that are residents or based outside Italy, can result in an increase of the minimum payment threshold.
At the beginning of each month, Viralize will issue for the Media Partner, if he/she has subscribed to the Software as a Service (SaaS), an invoice stating the payment due for the previous month, which must be paid with a Bank Transfer to Viralize within the next 30 days, as shown in the invoice.
In any case, no payments will be made if, for a given month, the Media Partner's payment does not reach the minimum threshold defined below or the different threshold indicated in the STS ("Minimum Threshold"). In this situation, the amount below the Minimum Threshold will accrue to the Media Partner's payment that is due in the following month and will be paid together with the latter, if the Minimum Threshold is reached. The Partner declares that he/she is solely responsible for the payment to the competent authorities of any applicable taxes.
The minimum thresholds will vary depending on the method of payment and on the country of residence, and are defined as follows:
For Partners residing in Italy:
Minimum threshold of €50 - payment via PayPal
Minimum threshold of €100 - payment by Bank Transfer
For Partners residing in the European Union:
Minimum threshold of €50 - payment via PayPal
Minimum threshold of €100 - payment by Bank Transfer
For Partners residing outside the European Union:

Payments will not be made in any case of deceptive and/or fraudulent and/or illicit activity performed by the Media Partner, as determined by Viralize at its discretion.
In any case, the Partner acknowledges and agrees that the data displayed daily in the Panel shall be considered as indicative and, therefore, susceptible to modifications by Viralize (such as the partial or total cancellation of the amount resulting from fraud or unlawful actions performed by the Partner), while the definitive calculation of fees will be made only at the end of each month. For the purposes of the fees indicated in the previous article 8.1, only the amount indicated by Viralize at the end of each month shall prevail, when Viralize authorizes the Media Partner to issue an invoice.
If the Partner has not reached the Minimum Threshold for the entire duration of the contract, no payment will be owed by Viralize to the Partner.
