For purposes of clarification, in such instances, the Agency shall use commercially reasonable efforts to determine the approximate effective API cost on a per-click basis for all applicable clients. Each such client shall then be charged its proportionate share of the API expense.

The Agency shall provide the Client with a one-by-one (1×1) clear pixel (the “Image Tag”) to allow for tracking by the Agency. The Client will not take any action with respect to this Image Tag that would interfere with the Agency’s ability to carry out its activities under this Agreement and will provide reasonable advance notice to the Agency of any action reasonably expected to have such effect. If the Agency’s remuneration is based upon actions of Qualified Customers, should the Client modify, alter, delete, disable, fail to serve or take any other action with regard to the Image Tags provided to the Client by the Agency, the Client agrees to pay to the Agency for each day, or pro-rata portion of any day, during which the Agency’s ability to track such data is hindered, the average Rand (ZAR) amount of remuneration earned by the Agency and Search Partners per day during the seven (7) day period immediately preceding the period of time during which the Agency’s tracking ability was hindered.
