If you are entering into these Standard Terms on behalf of a company or other legal entity, you represent that you have the legal authority to bind the legal entity to these Standard Terms, in which case « you » or « your » shall mean such entity. If you do not have such authority or if you disagree with any of the terms in these Standard Terms, IAS does not grant you a license to use the Services. In the event of any inconsistency between these Standard Terms and the applicable IO or SOW, the applicable IO or SOW control.
You can always find the most recent version of these Standard Terms at https://integralads.com/terms-and-conditions. IAS may change these Standard Terms by posting a new version without notice to you. Use of the Services after such change constitutes acceptance of such changes.

(b) You will comply with any applicable reporting requirements and/or implementation specifications provided to you by IAS (including, without limitation, any and all specifications related to the proper insertion and removal of any advertising tags, ad unit overlays or other code provided by IAS to you and used in connection with the provision of the Services).
