The present document and the use of the Website and Platform may require basic familiarity with computer science, blockchain and ad tech. If any of the information in the present Terms is unclear, we would appreciate your thoughts, comments and questions via email.

Once you agree to the Terms and Conditions, we consider this an explicit consent to the following:
  1. DEFINITIONS
    1. ”Aura Website” is http://auras.me/.
    2. ”Aura Platform” is the application hosted at http://auras.me/, which allows Advertisers to start advertising campaigns and Publishers to earn funds from running ads on their websites/apps.
    3. ”Aura Users” include Publishers, Advertisers, content creators and user of the Aura platform.
    4. ”Advertising Parties” the term applies collectively to Publishers and Advertisers, users of Aura itself.
    5. ”Publishers” or ”supply side”refer to entities who sell ad inventory.
    6. ”Advertisers” , ”demand side” or ”buyers” refer to entities who buy ad inventory.
    7. ”Web users” or ”users” refer to end users not of Aura itself, but of the Publishers through the ads.
    8. ”Events” shall mean any action that the user undertakes in regard to a digital ad including but not limited to click, impression, closing of the web page, etc.
    9. ”Custom events” refer to events that are defined by Advertising parties. For example, if you are an Advertiser with an e-commerce website, you might choose to send an event for product purchases. A potential use case is using Aura for affiliate networks, where publishers get a share of the revenue on every purchase of a product.
    10. ”Blockchain” is a decentralized, distributed and public digital ledger used for the purpose of recording transactions in blocks of information, which cannot be altered retroactively.
    11. ”Authentication Wallet” is a cryptocurrency wallet (cryptographic keypair) with a specific address. To create and use a cryptocurrency wallet, you may use MetaMask, TREZOR, Ledger or others.
    12. ”Smart contract” is an immutable computer program running on the blockchain.
    13. ”Advertiser’s wallet” and ”Publisher’s wallet”refer to the ”Identity smart contract” of advertiser and publisher, respectively.
    14. ”Identity smart contract” is a smart contract that represents an Aura User account, and allows multiple Authentication Wallets to control it.
  2. SYSTEM DESCRIPTION AND FEATURES

    Aura Network is a new-generation solution aiming to address and correct some of the most prominent inefficiencies of the online advertising industry: user privacy misuse, ad fraud, lack of transparency in reporting, etc.

    We use peer-to-peer technology, cryptography and blockchain for the purposes of minimizing advertising frauds, improving stability and transparency and eliminating intermediaries. By introducing real-time tracking and reporting directly accessible to each Advertiser and Publisher, and dropping the need for most intermediaries, we dramatically reduce the ability for any side to report wrong data to others for their own financial gain.

  3. REGISTRATION

    Aura Users can choose two methods of registration - with their email address or their authentication wallet (Metamask, TREZOR, Ledger or other).

    The registration with an email address represents a so-called Quick account and it creates a temporary wallet in the User browser’s storage (localStorage). This storage may be deleted/lost due to technical failure, intentional clearing, re-installation of the browser or the operating system, hardware failure, etc

    Therefore, we highly recommend either the adoption of proper safety measures to protect the wallet from deletion, or to choose registration with an authentication wallet (Metamask, TREZOR, Ledger).

    Users are solely responsible for undertaking adequate measures regarding their account credentials. Due to the nature of custody-free technologies such as the blockchain, Aura cannot always provide a recovery mechanism
