We will automatically check for the leads distribution and make payments on Advertiser’s behalf to supporters.
This Section 8 applies only to Advertisers participating in the Marketplace.
8.1. TRANSPARENCY & DISCLOSURE.
We require full disclosure by all Marketplace participants. Any attempt to instruct, coerce or manipulate a supporter into hiding the commercial relationship between you and the supporter may result in removal from the Service.

UAB Leads Group reserves the right to modify, suspend or terminate the required method of payment for use of the Service at any time, although any pending Promotions will be completed using the method current when you listed the Promotion. If UAB Leads Group modifies the terms of the method of payment, the modifications will be reflected in an updated version of the GOODBUZZ Website. If you do not consent to such modified terms, you must immediately discontinue use of the Marketplace. Advertiser’s continued enrollment after any modifications constitutes your acceptance of the terms of the method of payment as modified.
