The following are certain general terms and conditions governing advertising published in the U.S. print and digital editions of DREAM TEEN Magazine (the “Magazine”) published by DREAM TEEN Communications Inc. (the “Publisher”).

1. Rates are lower than the average total audited circulation, However, as magazine subscription and audience base increase announcement of any change in rates and/or circulation rate base will be made in advance of the Magazine’s advertising sales close date of the first issue to which such rates and/or circulation rate base will be applicable. The Magazine Rate Card specifies the publication schedule of the Magazine, and its on-sale dates.

2. For Full 2-page spread and full page ad, advertiser running a full-run qualifying advertisement in the Magazine will automatically run in the print and digital edition of the Magazine, unless the advertiser explicitly opt-outs in writing of running in the digital edition, either on the insertion order or via email, by no later than the ad close date. In the event advertiser opts-out of running in the digital edition of the Magazine for any reason other than legal or regulatory considerations that advertiser reasonably believes would prevent the advertisement from running in the digital edition, such advertiser’s ad placement will no

longer be deemed a “full-run” buy, and advertiser would therefore not be entitled to the benefits of advertising on a full-run basis (by way of example and not limitation, the advertisement would not be eligible for credits and may not be considered for premium placement). Certain advertisements that are not standard and/or full-page run-of-book advertisements may not qualify to run in the digital version, including but not limited to, scented units, non-standard fractional (such as fractionals that are less than 1/3 page) and business reply cards. Please consult the Publisher for details. If an advertiser elects to opt-out of the digital edition, such opt-out will apply to all devices and platforms.

With respect to the digital edition of the Magazine, depending on the device and/or platform on which it is viewed, the Magazine may be viewed in one of two formats: (i) a straight from print magazine format, which is an exact reproduction of the design and content of the print version of the Magazine (the “Straight From Print Magazine Version”) or (ii) a designed for tablet/enhanced for tablet magazine format, in which the design of the Magazine has been optimized for viewing on the device on which it is displayed (the “Designed For Tablet Magazine Version”). Please consult the Publisher for details.

Qualifying advertisements, depending on various factors, including but not limited to the device and/or platform on which they are viewed, may be viewed in one of three formats: (i) “straight from print advertising format” or “SFP” where the page on screen looks exactly like the advertisement appearing in the print edition; (ii) “designed for tablet advertising format” or “DFT” where the same creative has been resupplied and designed for optimal reading on the device and/or platform and is meant to be displayed at 100%; and (iii) “enhanced for tablet advertising format” or “EFT” where an advertisement has added enhancements and bonus content to transform the print content to more fully utilize the digital medium (e.g., hotspots, photo slide shows, video, audio, in-app browser, etc.).

Qualifying advertisements running in the Straight From Print Magazine Version or the Designed For Tablet Magazine Version of the digital edition of the Magazine will automatically run in a straight from print advertising format. If an advertiser wishes to include its qualifying advertisement in the digital edition in a format other than straight from print (i.e., designed for tablet advertising format or enhanced for tablet advertising format), it must so indicate prominently on the insertion order by the ad close date. Designed for tablet advertising format or enhanced for tablet advertising format may not be available on all platforms or devices. Please consult the Publisher for details.

With respect to qualifying advertisements in a straight from print advertising format, if a URL exists in the print creative, such URL shall be automatically activated unless advertiser notifies Publisher otherwise in writing; if the print creative has multiple URLs, Publisher shall activate the brand’s main URL unless notified otherwise in writing. With respect to qualifying advertisements in a “designed for tablet” advertising format, if such advertising creative contains one URL, Publisher shall automatically activate that URL; if the advertisement contains more than one URL, Publisher shall activate the brand’s main URL.

3. With respect to national advertisements that are less than a full-page but equal to or greater than 1/3 page that are running in the digital edition of the Designed For Tablet Magazine Version, such advertisements will be framed by white space unless they are upgraded to a full page. Please consult the Publisher for details regarding the opportunity to upgrade such advertisement. National advertisements that are less than a full- page that are running in the digital edition of the Straight From Print Magazine Version shall appear as they appeared in the print edition of the Magazine.

4. Advertisers may not cancel orders for, or make changes in, advertising after the closing dates of the Magazine.

5. The Publisher is not responsible for errors or omissions in any advertising materials provided by the advertiser or its agency (including errors in key numbers) or for changes made after closing dates.
