Content Management Process

A. ISM Connect manages all content from its offices at 169 N Main Street, Doylestown PA. Landlord will have the ability to review all advertising if the Landlord so wishes. ISM Connect will maintain a reasonable list of advertisers/sponsors and categories, which would not be acceptable to ISM Connect. The Landlord may at its discretion provide additions to this list. This is standard practice and required for participation in the ISM Connect network. There are a number of reasons for some advertising clients to be excluded from the ISM Connect Digital Media System, for example existing corporate relationships, pending litigation, and misrepresentation of the ISM Connect corporate model. This process developed by ISM Connect will be the operating guidelines (The Advertising Standards) to be followed while running or creating content, and can ensure that no content is deployed to the screens that would violate those guidelines.

B. All content will be run using a rotation schedule, which provides 1-2 weeks for Landlord and/or ISM Connect to review content as needed.

C. Upon agreement, advertisers/sponsors will be given creative format guidelines. This is handled solely by ISM Connect as these are technical specifications for the type of media needed to run on the screens.

D. The Digital Media System may be capable of interfacing with existing Landlord communications systems, in case of emergency. All material communicated in the event of an emergency must comply with this policy. Emergency broadcast material provided by the Landlord is the material, property, and responsibility of the Landlord.
