TABOOLA TERMS OF SERVICE
These Terms of Service (“TOS”) apply to the content-delivery platforms, widgets, analytics tools, and other technical applications offered through third-party websites by Taboola, Inc. with registered office at 1115 Broadway, 7th Floor, New York, NY 10010, USA or its affiliates (“Taboola,” “we,” “us,” or “our”), described further below and collectively referred to as the “Services.”
1. Description of the Services
The Services consist of us offering a content discovery widget (“Widget”) that you may see on third-party websites of our publisher customers, who allow us to place our Widget on their websites or applications in order to redistribute their own content or to distribute the content of our advertiser customers (collectively, the “Customers“) to visitors of the publisher customer’s website based on what it believes the visitor would be most interested in reading or viewing.
The availability of the Services on a third-party website or application does not necessarily indicate any relationship or affiliation between us and those sites.

5. Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) Notice
We are committed to complying with U.S. copyright and related laws, and we require all of our Customers who disseminate content through the Services to comply with these laws. Accordingly, our users (including you) may not disseminate any material or content using the Services in any manner that constitutes an infringement of third-party intellectual property rights, including rights granted by U.S. copyright law. Owners of copyrighted works who believe that their rights under U.S. copyright law have been infringed may take advantage of certain provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) to report alleged infringements. It is our policy in accordance with the DMCA and other applicable laws to reserve the right to terminate the rights of any user to access the Services if any such user is either found to infringe third-party copyright or other intellectual property rights, including repeat infringers, or who we believe, in our sole discretion, are infringing these rights. Upon our receipt of a proper notice of claimed infringement under the DMCA, we will respond expeditiously to remove, or disable access to, the material claimed to be infringing and will follow the procedures specified in the DMCA to resolve the claim between the notifying party and the alleged infringer who provided the content in issue. Our designated agent (i.e., the proper party) to whom you should address such notice is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you believe that content that you or a third party owns has been used via the Services in a way that violates your or someone else’s copyright or other intellectual property rights, please provide us with the following information:
- an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright or other intellectual property interest;
- a description of the copyrighted work or other intellectual property that you claim has been infringed;
- a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located;
- your address, telephone number, and email address;
- a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright or intellectual property owner, its agent, or the law; and
- a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the information contained in your report is accurate and that you are the copyright or intellectual property owner or authorized to act on the copyright or intellectual property owner’s behalf.
