3. Content Creation and Distribution
Service Provider offers the Portal for the Client. that is used to digitally distribute aforementioned Content to end-users in the App, Web and to other relevant Dized services.
The Client grants the right and license to the Service Provider to sell and distribute Digital Rights to the Content that the Client, Client’s business or any of the Clients affiliates have created with the Tools, in exchange for Compensation. The Client agrees that the Service Provider may sell the Digital Rights to Players directly or to other parties and affiliates that also sell to Players (extending to cases such as bundle deals.) The right extends to all platforms and operating systems and to all types of payment options available for Players in their current territory. Each Digital Right sold by the Service Provider is compensated as stated under section “4. Offering Content for End-Users”.
4. Offering Content for End-Users
4.1 Offering Free-to-Access Content
Rules and Tutorials are free to access for the end-users, and the Service Provider retains the right to show advertisements on these contents. This includes, but is not limited to, banner and video ads. Accessing such a Content does not require any form of monetary payment by the Player.
4.2 Offering Paid Content
Compensation will be effective on 1st November 2023. The terms under this section will not be effective until then, and the Service Provider retains the revenue in full, which is used for developing the platform further and for growing the size of the Player audience.
Once the Compensation is effective, the Service Provider will share revenue based on the current Compensation Model. Revenue is shared for Client’s Paid Content sales and Usages.
For Content Purchase the revenue is shared on a sale-by-sale basis, and the amount depends on the Price Tier selected by the Client, and according to the Compensation Model.
For Subscriptions the revenue is shared based on Content Usage, and the amount is defined by the Compensation Model.
Compensation is paid for the Client on a monthly basis via bank wire as long as the threshold to be paid is at least 100.00 EUR. For a smaller sum the amount is rolled over to next month’s payment. Client is responsible for handling any transfer related fees such as currency conversions charged by the Client’s bank. The Service Provider will not hold any funds longer than a year, even if they are less than the aforementioned threshold amount.
The Client can review the amount of sales in the Dized Portal or on the reports delivered by the Service Provider.

The Client may choose to use a time-limited method to offer their Paid Content for free, or to remove Ads from their Free Content. In these cases the Client covers a monthly fee for the Service Provider, according to the Effective Pricing. The Content will remain free as long as the monthly fee is covered.
Alternatively, the Client may choose to use a permanent method to offer their Paid Content for free, or to remove Ads from their Free Content. This is done using codes that can be delivered to Players digitally, or as a code card. When a Player redeems a code in the App, they get permanent access to the specific Content.
These codes remain valid for 7 years after they have been purchased from the Service Provider, or as long as the Content is available in the App. The Client is not allowed to sell, or give Dized codes for reselling purposes. The Client shall take appropriate actions to make sure any Dized codes they purchased from the Service Provider won’t end up in resale.
4.4 Dized+ Subscription

5. Special Occasions in Pricing
While the Client sets the price for their Paid Content, the Service Provider may sell the Digital Rights to the Content at any price in its discretion. In such cases the Compensation to the Client will always be done according to the selected current Price Tier in the Portal, and by the same margin as stated in Effective Pricing. (As an example, bundle deals or sale events). Such cases are agreed with the Client case-by-case.
Example: if the Content Price is set to Tier 2, the publisher will get the Tier 2 Compensation from each sale, even if the Service Provider has sold the Content for a discounted price.
The Client is not allowed (without permission) to edit the price for such Content during, or just before, such events or campaigns.
In the case of refunds for Digital Rights to a Paid Content, the Service Provider may in its discretion issue refunds to customers. Any refunds will be deducted from the payments that are paid to the Client, as long as the refund claim is due to the Content being erroneous, flawed, defective or incorrect, and is not caused by negligence of the Service Provider or by issues with the Platform itself.
There might be local laws for refunds for the end-users that disregard the policies stated in these Terms.
