However, if Advertiser has entered into an independent agreement with a third party for licensing marketing information, Advertiser may use the Custom Audience data solely to fulfill Advertiser’s independent obligations, subject to the requirements of the terms under these Marketing Manager Service Terms and any applicable law.
(b) Advertiser will take all commercially reasonable efforts to protect any data and information made available by Grab under these Marketing Manager Service Terms from unauthorized access, loss and misuse, including the encryption of stored information behind a secured server network and organizational, contractual, technological and managerial safeguards. Advertiser will, without undue delay, notify Grab of any unauthorized access or acquisition of Custom Audience data by any person or entity through Advertiser that may become known to Advertiser, and reasonably cooperate (at Advertiser’s own expense) with any investigations regarding any such data breach.

(d) Advertiser will provide notice to each Data Subject through Advertiser, Advertiser’s agent, or Client on the use of the Data Subject’s Identifier Data (including through any privacy policies), and in compliance with applicable laws, that the Data Subject’s information collected by Advertiser, Advertiser’s agents or Clients may be shared with and used by third parties for the purposes specified under these Marketing Manager Service Terms, including for marketing, ad targeting, and other advertising purposes;
(e) Where Advertiser is acting as an agency and are providing Identifier Data on behalf of a Client, Advertiser represent and warrant that Advertiser have the authority as agent to the Client to disclose and use such data on their behalf, and will bind the Client to the terms contained in these Marketing Manager Service Terms.

In the event where the Store Earnings Wallet has insufficient balance to settle the Charges or where Grab is unable to deduct the Charges from the Store Earnings Wallet (for any reason whatsoever), Advertisers agree that Grab has the right to deduct and charge for the Charges from (i) its credit/debit cards (if added) and/or (ii) invoice the outstanding Charges directly to Advertisers, and Advertiser will pay all Charges on payment and credit terms agreed with Grab from its receipt of an invoice; and/or (iii) any payment method available in ad account.

In the event where the credit/debit cards has insufficient balance to settle the Charges, or where Grab is unable to deduct the Charges from the credit/debit card (for any reason whatsoever), Advertisers agree that Grab has the right to deduct and charge for the Charges from (i) Store Earnings Wallet and/or (ii) invoice the outstanding Charges directly to Advertisers, and Advertiser will pay all Charges on payment and credit terms agreed with Grab from its receipt of an invoice; and/or (iii) any payment method available in ad account. If Advertiser opts to change credit/debit card as the primary payment method to another available payment method, Grab has the right to deduct and charge for the Charges incurred on the existing selected credit/debit card up till the date of change.
(b) Advertiser is a non Grab Merchant:
Credit/debit cards: If Advertiser opt to choose this option as the primary payment method, Charges will be charged via credit/debit cards as the primary payment method. When submitting its credit/debit card information for payment, Advertiser authorizes Grab to obtain pre-authorisation and charge Advertiser’s card for Charges. Advertisers are solely responsible for any additional fees (e.g. overage fees) resulting from the use of the card for payment. In the event where the credit/debit cards has insufficient balance to settle the Charges, or where Grab is unable to deduct the Charges from the credit/debit cards (for any reason whatsoever), Advertisers agree that Grab has the right to invoice the Charges directly to Advertisers, and Advertiser will pay all Charges on payment and credit terms agreed with Grab from its receipt of an invoice; and/or (iii) deduct the Charges from any payment method available in ad account. If Advertiser opts to change credit/debit card as the primary payment method to another available payment method, Grab has the right to deduct and charge for the Charges incurred on the existing selected credit/debit card up till the date of change.
Invoice billing: If Advertiser opt to choose this option, Advertiser will be invoiced by Grab to settle the Charges. Invoices will be based on Grab actuals/delivery reports, and will be issued by Grab to Advertiser, on a monthly basis. Advertiser shall make payment within credit terms agreed with Grab from its receipt of invoice from Grab. If payments are not timely made, Grab at its option, may apply a late charge fee per month (or part of a month) up to the maximum lawful rate permitted by the relevant applicable law and/or suspend the provision of Marketing Manager Service to Advertiser without notice to Advertiser. Any actions under this clause shall be performed without prejudice.
7.3 Agency Payment Liability. Where Advertiser is acting as an agency on behalf of a Client, Advertiser has to make direct payments on behalf of the Client to Grab for all Charges incurred, and is liable to Grab for any late payments or non-payments. Advertiser’s payment arrangement with the Client does not affect Advertiser’s payment obligations under these Marketing Manager Service Terms.

If applicable, conversion to other foreign currency can be made based on Grab’s discretion and system (the currency conversion will be based on the prevailing foreign exchange rate).
