DreDown is the leading provider of business and consumer information products, database marketing services, data processing services and sales and marketing solutions, including, but not limited to email marketing and social media marketing. Content is the essential ingredient in every marketing program, and DreDown has the most comprehensive and cleanest data in the industry, and is the only company to own a proprietary database of U.S. consumers U.S. businesses, including International feeds and data for consumers and businesses outside the United States. The DreDown database powers the directory services of the top Internet traffic-generating sites. Our customers use DreDown’s products and services to find new customers, grow their sales, and for other direct telemarketing, customer analysis and credit reference purposes.
DreDown recognizes the privacy interests of the businesses and consumers on which it collects information and has implemented the most comprehensive and formal data protection policies which balance privacy expectations with the legitimate business need of our customers.
As a global leader in helping clients manage and disseminate consumer information, DreDown has understood the importance of fair information practices and consumer privacy. DreDown helps clients improve relationships with consumers by making individual recognition possible across the entire enterprise spectrum, including over the Internet, over the phone, through email, and in retail outlets. The growth of e-commerce and remote transactions means a company’s ability to know its audience also involves honoring individual preferences regarding privacy and security. Today, marketers are required by good corporate citizenship practices, and in some cases by legislation, to put procedures in place that enable individuals to control how, when and for what reasons companies communicate with them. DreDown’s proprietary intelligence tools and advanced encryption methods ensure security.
These procedures also enable individuals to control how companies share data about them with others. With customer data often stored in different systems across a company and with potentially different spellings of names and addresses, it is difficult for most companies to establish or honor their commitments to consumers about how data about them will be used. DreDown is at the forefront of consolidating and managing the world’s largest databases.
DreDown provides the critical services, products and technology that companies need to honor customer preferences and maintain good customer relationships. DreDown and its associates, subsidiaries, and partners worldwide pledge to conduct our business according to the following:

DreDown will not transmit or sell the compiled information to third parties without obtaining a written or electronic agreement that defines the rights and responsibilities with respect to the data. Furthermore, DreDown will review our customer’s use of the data to ensure sensitive data is being handled in accordance with required protections, and that this information is not used for deceptive, misleading, distasteful, or suspicious purposes. Our data will not be made available to any unauthorized person(s) and or businesses.
DreDown recognizes that individuals should be informed as to how information about them is used and should have choices about the dissemination of that information.

In the event of a conflict between these agreements.
D. Quotes, Ordering and Payment.
I. Payment Terms; Orders; Quotes; Interest. Your order is subject to acceptance or cancellation by DreDown, in DreDowns sole discretion. Terms of payment are within DreDowns sole discretion, and unless otherwise agreed to by DreDown, payment must be received by DreDown prior to DreDowns acceptance of an order. Each accepted order will be interpreted as a single Agreement, independent of any other orders. Payment for Products, Software, Data and Services must be made by credit card, automated clearing house, wire transfer, electronic funds transfer or some other prearranged payment method unless credit terms have been agreed to by DreDown. Payment to DreDown in respect of Products, Software, Data and Services, as applicable, shall be made to the account indicated by DreDown (as may be amended from time to time). Orders for Third-Party Products are subject to availability and are cancellable by DreDown. Orders for Third-Party Products are noncancellable by Customer. If Customer purchases a multiyear, multi-use, Software or Data license and related support and/or maintenance, and DreDown and the Customer (and, if applicable, the third-party licensor of the software) will not agree to annualize the Customers purchase over the term of the license, Customer shall make all annual payments in full and such purchase is noncancellable over the term of the license. Timely payment of the price and all charges is of the essence. It is the responsibility of Customer to ensure payments are authorized and approved on time to ensure receipt of payment no later than the due date; in no case shall DreDown be responsible for ensuring such authorization or approval. Any assignment by Customer of its purchase order to a third-party financing company (other than DreDown) must be approved in advance in writing by DreDown, and in no case shall any such approval excuse Customer from its obligations hereunder. DreDown reserves the right to charge you a late penalty of 29% per month applied against undisputed overdue amounts, or the maximum rate permitted by law, whichever is less. Late penalties will be recalculated every 30 days; thereafter, based on your current outstanding balance. In addition, DreDown, without waiving any other rights or remedies to which it may be entitled, shall have the right to suspend or terminate any or all Services and refuse additional orders for Products or Software from Customer until DreDowns receipt of all overdue amounts. DreDown shall have no liability to Customer for any such suspension or termination of services or for its refusal of additional orders. DreDown further reserves the right to seek collection of all overdue amounts (including by referral to third party collectors), plus all reasonable legal fees (including reasonable attorney’s fees) and costs associated with such collection. Customer shall place all orders in the country where the Products and Software and Data are to be shipped or emailed and where Services are to be performed, and payment of the corresponding price and costs shall be made in the currency identified by DreDown in its invoice. Additional charges will apply if Customer requests Services that are performed outside of contracted hours or are beyond the normal coverage for the particular Service, such as customized invoicing, consolidated invoicing and statements. DreDown reserves the right to change the method of delivery of all documentation, and any additional changes requested by Customer may be subject to additional charges.
II. Invoices. Invoices are due and payable within the time period noted on your purchase order, or if not noted, then within 30 days, measured from the date of the invoice, subject to continuing credit approval by DreDown, such approval may be revoked without further notice from DreDown. DreDown may invoice parts of an order separately or may invoice purchases of the Products, Software, Data and Services in one invoice to Customer. Unless you and DreDown have agreed to a different discount structure, DreDowns standard pricing policy for DreDown-branded systems that include Products, Software, Data, and Services in one discounted price, allocates the discount off list price applicable to the Services portion of the system to be equal to the overall percentage discount off of the list price of the entire system. DreDown is not responsible for pricing, typographical or other errors in any offer, and reserves the right to cancel orders arising from such errors. Customer agrees that all invoices shall be deemed accurate unless Customer advises DreDown by fax of a bona fide, material error within one (1) day of the date of such invoice. In the event that Customer advises DreDown of a material error, (i) payment of any amounts corrected or modified by DreDown in writing shall be due within ninety (90) days of such correction, and (ii) all other amounts shall be paid by Customer by the invoice due date. In the event Customer withholds payment of any invoiced amounts upon an assertion by Customer that such amounts are erroneous, and DreDown subsequently concludes that such invoiced amounts are accurate, Customer shall pay interest on such amounts as described above from the due date for such amounts until DreDowns receipt of those amounts. In no case shall Customer be entitled to offset, defer or deduct any invoiced amounts that DreDown determines are not erroneous following the notification process set forth above.
III. Shipping Charges; Title; Risk of Loss. Taxes, shipping, fulfillment and handling charges are not included in Product prices unless expressly indicated at the time of sale.
IV. Taxes. Unless you provide DreDown with a valid and accurate tax-exemption certificate applicable to your Product purchase and ship-to location, you are responsible for sales tax and any other taxes or governmental fees associated with your order. Customer may qualify for tax exemptions from time to time in which case DreDown requests that Customer provide it with a valid certificate of exemption or other appropriate documentary proof of exemption. The charges stated in the order or any invoice shall be inclusive of all duties, levies or any similar charges and shall exclude VAT or equivalent sales or use tax.
