3 The Publisher may, without derogation from the warranties contained in Clause 2, refuse or require to be amended any artwork, materials and copy for or relating to an Advertisement so as:
3.1 to comply with the legal or moral obligations placed on the Publisher
or the Buyer or the Advertiser; or
3.2 to avoid infringing a third party’s rights, and any codes under the general supervision of the Advertising Standards Authority or the production and quality specifications stipulated or referred to in the Rate Card.
4 The Publisher has the right at its discretion to decline to publish, or to omit, suspend or change the position of, any Advertisement otherwise accepted for insertion. However, the Publisher will use reasonable efforts to comply with the wishes of the Buyer although it does not warrant the date of insertion, the wording, or the quality of the colour or mono reproduction of the Advertisement.
5 The Publisher will not be liable for any loss of copy, artwork, photographs or other materials, which the Buyer warrants that it has retained in sufficient quality and quantity for whatever purpose.
6 Where the Buyer is the Advertiser’s advertising agency, the Buyer warrants that it is authorised by the Advertiser to place the Advertisement with the Publisher and the Buyer will indemnify the Publisher against any claim made by the Advertiser against the Publisher arising from the publication thereof.
7 The Publisher shall have the right to change its scale of Advertisement charges in the Rate Card at any time without notice.
8 The Publisher shall not be bound by a stop order or cancellation or transfer of the Advertisement unless it meets the requirements specified on the Rate Card, and any such instruction otherwise than prior to the deadline thereof shall not (even though it be followed by the Publisher) affect the Buyer’s liability for payment for the Advertisement. The Publisher may treat as a cancellation the fact that the Buyer is deemed unable to pay its debts within the meaning of the Insolvency Act 1986 Section 123 or is otherwise in breach of any of these conditions.
9 In the absence of any other specific arrangement between the Publisher and the Buyer, Publisher will issue an invoice and payment in respect of the Advertisement (including any associated production, late copy and box number charges) is due in advance of publication except where the Publisher has agreed to allow credit to the Buyer, and
9.1 payment may be made by transfer or BACS payment to the account detailed on the invoice; or
9.2 by credit, debit card, PayPal or other digital payments service subject to any applicable payment surcharge; and
9.3 the charges invoiced will be subject to VAT at the current rate.
10 Payment for the Advertisement shall be made as aforesaid whether or not the Buyer shall have:
10.1 received the Publisher’s invoice; or
10.2 provided the Publisher with an order number at the time the Advertisement was booked.
11 The Buyer agrees to pay to the Publisher in respect of each Advertisement for which payment is not made by the due time:
11.1 the sum of £200 + VAT as an administration charge; and
11.2 interest on the amount paid late at the rate of 8% above the Bank of England base rate accruing from day to day (including the day on which payment was due) both before and after judgment.
Any such additional charge is payable within 7 days following delivery of the Publisher’s invoice particularising it.
12 It is the responsibility of the Buyer to check the accuracy of the Advertisement (and of each insertion of the Advertisement if more than one). Without prejudice to condition 6, the Publisher assumes no responsibility for the repetition of an error in an Advertisement ordered for more than one insertion unless notified immediately the error occurs. Any other matter of complaint, claim or query (whether in relation to the Advertisement or the invoice) must be raised with the Publisher in writing within 7 days following (as the case may be) insertion of the Advertisement or of the date on which it is claimed the Advertisement should have appeared or of the receipt by the Buyer of the invoice giving rise to it. Without prejudice to the Publisher’s entitlement to be paid for the Advertisement as published a sum representing a reasonable proportion of the charge agreed at the time the Advertisement was booked, the Publisher’s liability is limited to a maximum at its option of giving a credit for its charge for the Advertisement or (in an appropriate instance) of publishing the Advertisement for a second time without charge. Such complaint, claim or query.
13 There is no obligation on the Publisher for it to supply voucher copies or tearsheets and their absence shall not affect the Buyer’s liability for the agreed charge.
14 The Buyer acknowledges and agrees that the Publisher will use its reasonable endeavours to ensure the accuracy of any estimated figures relating to the number, proportion or type of people likely to be exposed to the Advertisement, the number of exposures each person is likely to receive, and the cost of achieving those exposures whether in the printed medium or in electronic format versions. Nevertheless, these are matters beyond the Publisher’s control and no warranties are given as to the accuracy of such estimates, or as to the figures actually occurring and the Publisher will have no liability to the Buyer in respect of any losses suffered by the Buyer or any third party by reason of the Buyer’s reliance on such estimate.
15 While all reasonable endeavours will be made as soon as possible after receipt by the Publisher to forward to the Buyer or as it may direct any replies to box numbers, the Publisher accepts no responsibility in respect of any loss or damage alleged to have arisen through delay in forwarding or omitting to forward such replies.
16 The Buyer will indemnify the Publisher and agrees to keep it indemnified against all claims, costs, proceedings, demands, losses, damages, expenses or liability whatsoever arising directly or reasonably foreseeable as a result of any breach or non-performance of any of the representations, warranties or other terms contained in these terms and conditions or implied by law.
17 No waiver or indulgence by the Publisher shall be effective save in relation to the matter in respect of which it was specifically given.
18 Except in respect of:
18.1 death or personal injury caused by the Publisher’s negligence, the Publisher will not be liable for any indirect or consequential loss (including without limitation, business interruption and loss of profits, business, goodwill, reputation, anticipated savings, information or data), whether arising out of breach of contract, tort (including negligence) breach of statutory duty or otherwise howsoever caused; and
18.2 the Publisher’s total liability howsoever, arising in connection with the performance or contemplated performance of the order will be limited to:
(a) the refund of its charge for the relevant Advertisement;
(b) (or in the Publisher’s absolute discretion) repeat publication of the relevant Advertisement or an appropriate corrective Advertisement without charge.
19 If the Buyer is acting as a consumer when placing an order for publication of an Advertisement, then these terms and conditions do not affect the Buyer’s statutory rights. The Buyer, however, agrees that by placing an Advertisement for Publication prior to the expiry of the consumer’s cancellation rights under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013, the Buyer explicitly acknowledges that the order implies an obligation to pay and that the Buyer has made an express request for the Advertisement to be published during the cancellation period and that the right to cancel is lost.
20 The contract which incorporates these conditions shall be construed under and governed by the law of England and the parties submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
