“Inforific offers Authors the ability to share in impression ad revenue from third party websites (“Impressions”). Authors may assign an affiliate ID for each third party account to their Inforificaccount. For example, you can input your Google Adsense information into your Inforific account, and Inforific will share the Impressions with such services through that ID. You are solely responsible for verifying that you have entered a valid ID correctly. Inforific will insert your Adsense ID into the ads we place within your article 100% of the impressions on your article. You will not receive compensation for impressions on ads at the top, bottom, or side of your content. In order to share in the Impressions, You must have a valid Adsense account and enter your ID where requested in your account. Impression sharing is available only for attributable Impressions – that is, Impressions that occur directly on Your articles. These Impression-sharing services are provided subject generally to these Terms of Service, and in particular the terms in this section. There may also be additional terms imposed by the third parties with whom You choose to do business. Your participation in these third party affiliate programs is voluntary and You are under no obligation to add your ID and participate in Adsense sharing. Your use of the Impressions program on the Service constitutes Your agreement to uphold and be subject to these additional terms and conditions, as well as those that may be imposed by third parties with whom You may engage in the course of Your participation in Impression sharing services. By registering with third parties that share ad revenue with Users and inputting that information into the Website, You hereby appoint Inforific as Your exclusive agent to handle all such third party ad-sharing transactions as well as to input your ID into the pages you create.
