If AudioMob detects Inventory Quality Risk on Developer Properties through use of such tools and services or otherwise, then AudioMob may either (i) not send that impression through to auction, or (ii) suspend traffic for such Developer Properties.

3.3.1     In the event that AudioMob becomes aware of inventory quality violations with respect to impressions that have been served on a Developer Property, then: (a) AudioMob shall have the right to withhold Developer Payments solely for the applicable impressions until AudioMob has completed its good faith investigation with respect to such impressions and concluded any negotiation with the applicable Demand Partners with respect to such impressions; and (b) where AudioMob determines that there have been inventory quality violations for all or a portion of such impressions (the “Fraudulent Impressions”), AudioMob shall reduce pending Developer Payments by the amount otherwise payable to Developer for the Fraudulent Impressions and pay Developer the resulting net amount in the ordinary course.
