By submitting a Bid, you agree to be bound by these Sponsored Listing Terms and understand that your Bid will be placed in an auction and only selected Bids will become Sponsored Listings (as defined below).
If the individual accepting these Sponsored Listing Terms is accepting on behalf of a company or other legal entity, such individual represents that they have the authority to bind such entity and its affiliates to these Sponsored Listing Terms, in which case the term “Merchant” shall refer to such entity and its affiliates. If the individual accepting these Sponsored Listing Terms does not have such authority, or does not agree with these Sponsored Listing Terms, such individuals must not accept these Sponsored Listing Terms and may not submit Bids.

For the purpose of clarity, a Sponsored Listing may be posted anytime after it is selected and will continue until the budget is exhausted, Portier removes for any reason permitted by these Sponsored Listing Terms, or until you end the campaign in accordance with Section 6.
When you use the Ads Manager, you authorize Portier to assemble and format Sponsored Listings based on the content provided in accordance with your Uber Eats Agreement.
