29) Site Aggregators

Publishers reserve the right to review all potential advertisers' Web sites at any time, before or after placement, to determine whether they are deemed "site aggregators."

Publishers reserve the right to reject advertising that is deemed competitive or contrary to the best interests of the company.

30) Space Brokering

Advertising agencies who wish to purchase space within our online sites must meet the following criteria:

MLS shall have the right to omit any advertisement when the space allotted to advertising has been filled. Unintentional or inadvertent failure to publish advertising invalidates the insertion order for that issue only. Failure of MLS to insert any advertisement shall be considered immaterial and shall not constitute a breach of this Agreement, nor shall MLS be liable for damages thereof. In such event, Advertiser shall have the option of having such advertisement printed in a future issue under these Terms and Conditions or of having no charge for such advertisement not inserted. Advertisements already run shall be paid for at rates as noted in our Placement Option of this agreement. MLS reserves the right to require any advertising to be labeled "advertisement."

34) Any specification or order for the use or non-use of any particular page or position where the advertisement is to be inserted shall be treated as a request only, and MLS shall not be obligated to comply with said request. In the event said request for position is granted, Advertiser shall pay an additional position charge.

35) In the event MLS must employ an attorney to collect sums due hereunder or to enforce compliance by Advertiser with any of the terms of this Agreement, Advertiser shall pay to MLS attorney’s fees and other costs incurred by MLS in connection with any legal actions and appeals thereof.

36) Advertiser shall indemnify MLS and hold MLS harmless from any and all loss, cost, expense and damages on account of any and all manner of claims, demands, actions and proceedings that may be instituted against MLS on grounds alleging that any advertisement submitted hereunder by or on behalf of Advertiser violates any copyright or any proprietary right of any person, or that it contains any matter that is libelous or scandalous, or invades any person’s right to privacy or other personal rights. Advertiser agrees at Advertiser’s own expense, to promptly defend and continue the defense of any such claim, demand, action or proceeding that may be brought against MLS, provided that MLS shall promptly notify Advertiser with respect thereto. The Advertiser shall reimburse MLS for any amount paid by MLS in settlement of claims or in satisfaction of judgments obtained by reason of publication of such advertising copy, together with all expenses incurred in connection therewith, including but not limited to, reasonable attorney’s fees and court costs.
