Governance / Nominating Committee Charter


This charter ("Charter") governs the operations of the Governance/Nominating Committee (the "Committee") of the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of LiveRamp Holdings, Inc. (the "Company").

The Committee shall be subject to the provisions of the Company’s Bylaws relating to committees of the Board, including those provisions relating to removing committee members and filling vacancies.
