You are solely responsible for verifying that you have entered a valid ID correctly. Wizzley will rotate Your third party IDs into 50% (and up to 60%) of the Impressions on the articles You create. In order to share in the Impressions, You must have a valid account from the third party provider. 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 use any or all of them. 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 Wizzley 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.
