The MNTN Insertion Order is a document that contains line items related to an advertising arrangement you intend to execute. It contains the specifics of the ad serving parameters you intend to communicate and agree upon with your finance team. It is the final step in the ad proposal process.
Note that the Insertion Order is not a binding contract. The legal terms governing your use of the MNTN platform are available at: https://mountain.com/terms-and-conditions/. In order to gain access to the MNTN platform, you must accept these terms and conditions. Nor is the Insertion Order the source of truth regarding the parameters of a given campaign. The MNTN platform is fully-self serve, meaning you as the customer control such parameters directly through your actions in the platform UI. As a result, notwithstanding anything in the Insertion Order, your actions in the platform will control with respect to campaign details, including, but not limited to, start date, end date, goals, channels, and budget. You will be billed based on your actions in the platform with respect to a given campaign.
