Terms and conditions
Terms and Conditions of Advertising
January 2011. These terms and conditions supersede any other advertising terms and conditions published previously.
1. These conditions shall apply to all advertisements accepted for publication. Any other term of condition proposed shall not be valid unless specifically accepted in writing by the Publisher, Brillybox Publishing (a trading name of Global Investment Group PLC), CDC Distribution Centre, Unit 13, Vauxhall Industrial Estate, Ruabon, Wrexham, LL14 6HA.
2. For the purpose of these terms and conditions, ‘Advertiser’ shall refer to the advertiser, and of its employees or its agent, whichever is the principal. ‘Publisher’ refers to Brillybox Publishing (a trading name of Global Investment Group PLC).
3. All advertisements are accepted subject to the Publisher’s approval of the copy and the space being available.
4. All artwork supplied by an Advertiser must comply with the specifications as set out by the Publisher.
5. The Publisher reserves the right to omit or suspend an advertisement at any time if in its opinion there is a good reason. If the Publisher exercises its right under this clause, any claim on the part of the Advertiser for damages or breach of contract shall not be entertained. The Publisher reserves the right to refuse to insert any advertisement for any cause whatsoever.
6. If the Publisher considers it necessary to modify the space or alter the position of any insertion or change the date of publication or make any other alteration, the Advertiser will have the right to cancel if the modifications, alterations or changes proposed are unacceptable, unless such alterations are due to circumstances beyond the Publisher’s control, in which case the Advertiser will not have the right to cancel.
7. Every care is taken to avoid mistakes; however the Publisher accepts no liability for any errors or omissions or inaccurate copy instructions on the part of third parties or subcontractors. It will not compensate for advertisements which do not comply with specifications for supplied advertisement copy. Any issue for complaint by the Advertiser must be raised in writing with the Publisher within four weeks of the relevant issue being published.
8. If instructions are not received by the agreed copy date, no guarantee can be given that proofs will be supplied or corrections made and the Publisher reserves the right to insert what is, in its opinion, the most appropriate copy.
9. An Advertiser’s property, including, but not limited to artwork, illustrations and copy is held at the owner’s risk and should be insured by it against loss or damage from whatever cause. No responsibility can be accepted for damage to, or loss of artwork or other advertising material.
10. The Advertiser warrants that its advertisement does not contain any material that shall infringe any copyright, right of trademark, right of privacy, right of publicity or personality or any other right of any other nature of any person, or be obscene or libellous or blasphemous or defamatory, and that the advertisements do not incorporate any third party source material, or otherwise legally actionable, or which might bring the Publisher into disrepute, or an infringement of the British Code of Advertising and Sales Promotion.
11. All advertisements are accepted on the understanding that any descriptions relating to goods or services do not in any way contravene the provisions of Trade Descriptions Act 1968 and 1972 (including any statutory re-enactment or modification thereof), The Financial Services Act 1986 and any other relevant legislation.
12. The Advertiser will indemnify the Publisher fully in respect of any claim made against the Publisher arising from or in relation to the advertisement.
13. Any sums due will be invoiced by the Publisher directly to the Advertiser and must be paid within 15 days of the invoice date.
14. Charges will be made to the Advertiser (a) where reproduction work is involved or (b) where the printer is involved in extra production work arising from acts or omissions of the Advertiser; these charges will be at the supplier’s standard hourly rate.
15. Verbal or written agreement to book, or receipt of the booking form, is taken as confirmation of booking. If an Advertiser wishes to cancel or reduce the size of an advertisement, it will be liable for the total cost of the original booking.
16. Cancellation of series bookings will incur a surcharge on insertions which have already appeared equivalent to any discount achieved by the series booking, per insertion, for each insertion already published.
17. The Publisher is not obliged to accept a cancellation request (which the Publisher may require to be made in writing) and will not be deemed to have done so unless the Publisher has approved the Advertiser’s cancellation request in writing. It is the responsibility of the Advertiser to obtain this approval in writing from the Publisher; no cancellation is valid without this approval.
18. The Publisher reserves their statutory right to include charges for interest and compensation in accordance with the Late Payments Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998, and subsequent amendments, for invoices which remain unpaid after their due date. Such interest will be calculated upon the amount owing at a rate equivalent to 8% per annum above the base rate of The Bank of England.
19. Any queries or dispute relating to any invoice issued by the Publisher must be raised by the Advertiser in writing within 5 working days from the date of invoice, otherwise the invoice will be deemed as agreed and accepted.
20. These terms and conditions and any other terms of the contract between the Publisher and the Advertiser shall be governed by the laws of England and Wales and the parties agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
