1. PAYMENT AND BILLING
(a) Audacy will bill Client monthly, using the Final Sunday Fiscal Month, unless otherwise provided on the face of this Agreement.

In the event Client timely notifies Audacy of such dispute, Client and Audacy shall work diligently with each toward a resolution, but any amount not in dispute shall be promptly paid as described herein.

(a) Audacy reserves the right to immediately terminate this Agreement upon default by Client in the payment of invoices hereunder.

(c) Upon any termination by Audacy all charges for services or advertising completed hereunder and not paid shall become immediately due and payable. If Audacy terminates by reason of Client’s material breach, Client’s liability shall be to pay for all services and advertising contemplated by this Agreement.
3. INTERRUPTION OR OMISSION
If for any reason there is an interruption or omission of any advertising or services contracted to be provided hereunder, Audacy may suggest substitute advertising or services.

(b) Indemnification by Client. Client, at its own expense, will jointly and severally indemnify, defend and hold harmless Audacy and its affiliates (including Audacy’s suppliers and vendors), and their respective employees, representatives and agents from and against any third party Claim to the extent that such Claim is based on, or arises out of libel, violation of right of privacy or publicity, copyright infringement, trademark infringement or other infringement of any third party right, fraud, false advertising, misrepresentation product liability or violation of any law, statute, ordinance, rule or regulation throughout the world in connection with Client Content or any Client web site(s) or contents therein (including, without limitation, any content or keywords resulting from such web site(s)).
