Thanks for using our products and services (“Services”). The Services are provided by Halal.Ad. (“Halal Ad”), located at Inge Lehmanns Gade 10, Aarhus C 8000, Denmark 1600.

1. Salam and Welcome to Halal.Ad!

By using our Services, you agree to these terms (the “Halal.Ad Terms”). Please read the Agreement carefully.

Halal.Ad serves as an ad platform for halal market. This is how it works:

  • Muslim or Non-Muslim Advertisers place ads on Halal.Ad platform that are ethical and permissible (halal) according to Islam that promote ethical and permissable products and services. Advertisers can target specific countries and publishers as well. The advertisers can also pay one time fixed amount or subscribe for a daily amount for ongoing ads.
  • Halal.Ad checks and verifies each ad to make sure the ads are ethical and halal.
  • Then the ads that are approved will be displayed on our partner websites - publishers who manage websites, blogs, forums and other online media whose main audience are Muslims.

As used in the Agreement, “you”, “advertiser” or “publisher” means the individual or entity using the Services (and/or any individual, entity or successor entity, agency or network acting on your behalf), “we,” “us” or “Halal.Ad” means Halal Ad, and the “parties” means you and Halal Ad.

2. Access to the Services and Accounts

Your use of the Services is subject to your creation and our approval of an Halal.Ad account (an “Account”). We have the right to refuse or limit your access to the Services.

By submitting an application to use the Services, if you are an individual, you represent that you are at least 18 years of age. You may only have one Account.

By enrolling in Halal.Ad, you permit us to serve, as applicable, (i) advertisements and other content (“Ads”), and (ii) related traffic and other links to your websites, mobile applications, media players, mobile content, and/or other properties approved by Halal.Ad (each individually a “Property”).

3. Using our Services

For example, don’t interfere with our Services or try to access them using a method other than the interface and the instructions that we provide.

Another example could be if you are a publishers and click on the ads by our advertisers shown on your own websites to gain more paid views or clicks. We will monitor each click and view to each ad and your account may be suspended and blocked. Besides your revenue from serving ads will be nullified.

You may discontinue your use of any Service at any time by removing the relevant code from your Properties.

We are constantly changing and improving our Services. We may add or remove functionalities or features of the Services at any time, and we may suspend or stop a Service altogether.

We may modify the Agreement at any time. We’ll post any modifications to the Halal.Ad Terms on this page. Changes will not apply retroactively and generally will become effective 14 days after they are posted. However, changes addressing new functions for a Service or changes made for legal reasons will be effective immediately. If you don’t agree to any modified terms in the Agreement, you’ll have to stop using the affected Services.

5. Payouts to Publishers

Subject to this Section 5 of Halal.Ad Terms, you (Publisher) will receive a payment related to the number of valid sold clicks on Ads displayed on your Properties, the number of valid impressions (sold views) of Ads displayed on your Properties, or other valid events performed in connection with the display of Ads on your Properties, in each case as determined by Halal.Ad.

Except in the event of termination, we will pay you by the end of the calendar month following any calendar month in which the earned balance in your Account equals or exceeds the applicable payment threshold $10.

Unless expressly authorised in writing by Halal.Ad, you may not enter into any type of arrangement with a third party where that third party receives payments made to you under the Agreement or other financial benefit in relation to the Services.

Payments will be calculated solely based on our accounting. Payments to you may be withheld to reflect or adjusted to exclude any amounts refunded or credited to advertisers and any amounts arising from invalid activity, as determined by Halal.Ad in its sole discretion.

Invalid activity is determined by Halal.Ad in all cases and includes, but is not limited to, (i) spam, invalid queries, invalid impressions or invalid clicks on Ads on your websites generated by any person, bot, automated program or similar device, including through any clicks or impressions originating from IP addresses or computers under your control; (ii) clicks solicited or impressions generated by payment of money, false representation, or requests for end users to click on Ads or take other actions; (iii) Ads served to end users whose browsers have JavaScript disabled; and (iv) clicks or impressions co-mingled with a significant amount of the activity described in (i, ii, and iii) above.

In addition to our other rights and remedies, we may (a) withhold and offset any payments owed to you under the Agreement against any fees you owe us under the Agreement or any other agreement, or (b) require you to refund us within 30 days of any invoice, any amounts we may have overpaid to you in prior periods. If you dispute any payment made or withheld relating to the Services, you must notify Halal.Ad in writing within 30 days of any such payment. If you do not, any claim relating to the disputed payment is waived. If an advertiser whose Ads are displayed on any Property defaults on payment to Halal.Ad, we may withhold payment or charge back your account.

To ensure proper payment, you are responsible for providing and maintaining accurate contact and payment information in your Account. You are responsible for any charges assessed by your bank or payment provider.

Our preferred payout method is via Paypal.

6. Payments for Ads

As Advertiser, you pay per click.

Currently we accept all major credit card payments via Stripe. Soon we will implement Paypal as well.

You are asked to prepay for your ad budget. Currently we offer these two ad budget options:

Lifetime Budget enables you to pay once for your ad. It is good when you are testing an ad with a limited time and budget. Once your budget ends, your ads stops serving.

Daily Budget enables you to commit for a certain amount of ad budget every day so you get an estimated exposure via views or clicks based on the type of ads you chose. You can pause and reactivate these ads any time you want. Once you pause the ads, your ads will stop serving.

If you chose Daily Budget, Halal.Ad charges your card or Paypal account for the clicks or views served for your ad daily. You can stop these ads at any time via logging into your ads dashboard. Once the ads are paused or deactivated, we will no longer charge your account.
