Terms and Conditions of Advertising

Frequency Discounts

Frequency discounts are based on the number of insertions on a single contract. New contracts replacing existing contracts will be accepted at any time to take advantage of additional frequency discounts. 'Short rates' (difference between frequency rates) will apply to any contract which falls short of the original campaign booking.

Rate Protection

Rates for advertisers under contract are protected for the duration of the contract period. The publisher reserves the right to change these rates and terms at any time without any notice. Any insertion order received prior to the date of notice of the new rates shall continue to apply for issues published within 60 days of the date the charge is announced. Production charges are separate and distinct from advertising rates. Advertisements requiring alterations to meet the magazine requirements will incur a production charge at cost price, and will be invoiced separately.

Payment Terms

Payment can be made by Direct Debit. Bank details are requested on the insertion order form which must be signed by the advertiser/agency. Payment will be debited on the day that the magazine is mailed. Alternatively we provide a 30 day invoice payment arrangement. Invoice date is the mailing date of the magazine in which the advertisement appears. Invoices not paid in full within the 30 days from the invoice date will incur an interest charge of 2% of the outstanding balance, per day.

Cancellations

No cancellations will be accepted after space closing date. The publisher reserves the right to repeat the previous advertisement if material is not provided by material due date.

Advertiser Responsibility

Advertisers and agencies assume liability for all content of advertisements printed, and also assume responsibility for any claims arising for them against the publisher. The publisher reserves the right to reject any advertising not considered suitable for publication.

Agency Commission

Commission will be paid to recognised advertising agencies at 10% of the rates, provided that the material is in accordance with the requirements, and that the account is paid within 30 days of the invoice date. Other charges such as insert handling, reprints, list rentals and other mechanical charges are not commissionable.
