Where no allotment is indicated on the Order Form, the applicable Use Fee is assessed on an as-used basis at the applicable overage rate indicated on the Order Form.
4.3 Fee Payments. One half of the License Fee is payable in advance of the Start Date. The balance of all fees are due and payable by Customer within thirty (30) days after the date of Field59’s invoice. All fees are assessed and shall be paid solely in accordance with Field59’s invoice.
4.4 Backfill. For any video stream displayed via the Player on the Customer Site that does not include Customer Advertising Content (“Unsold Ad Inventory”), Field59 will have the option to display additional Field59 Advertising Content (“Backfill Ads”), if indicated by the term “Field59 Backfill Ads” on the Order Form. Backfill Ads will not supersede Customer Advertising Content.
4.5 Rev Share.
1. Reference to Order Form. If a Rev Share applies, it will be indicated as a percentage on the Order Form with the term “Customer’s Rev Share”. If a Rev Share does not apply, the Order Form will include “No Rev Share” or a similar reference.

3. Rev Share – If Applicable. If a Rev Share applies, Field59 will pay Customer a Rev Share for the display of Field59 Advertising Content and Backfill Ads via the Player on the Customer Site. Payments will be issued to Customer within thirty (30) days after Field59’s receipt of payment from its third party suppliers. The Rev Share refers to a percentage of the revenue Field59 has received from its third party suppliers, less applicable ad serving and ad security costs.

Ad security costs are $0.05 CPM. Field59’s or Field59’s third party ad serving technology produces reporting information for the number of ads displayed and associated serving and security costs, and only that reporting shall be used to determine the number of ads displayed and associated ad serving and security costs. For the clarification of doubt, ad serving and ad security costs and the Rev Share do not apply to Customer Advertising Content.

The Streaming Box can act as an encoding mechanism for Customer’s live stream, for use in conjunction with the Field59 Application.
