New ads subject to approval by editor and publisher.
Insertion instructions shall be supplied for every advertisement and shall clearly state the following information: name of publication, name of advertiser date to be inserted, size of advertisement, identification of advertisement (proof of ad to be furnished) , plus any special instructions such as bleed, color, etc.
No conditions, printed or otherwise, appearing on the space order, billing instructions, or copy instructions, that conflict with the publisher's stated policies will be binding on the publisher.
Advertisers and advertising agency agree to indemnify, defend, and save harmless the publisher for any and all liability for content (including text, illustrations, representatives, sketches, maps, trademarks, labels, or other copyrighted matter) or advertisements printed, or the unauthorized use of any person's name or photography arising from the publisher's reprodution and publishing of such advertisements pursuant to the advertiser's or agency's order. The publisher reserves the right to reject or discontinue any advertising. This right shall not be deemed to have been waived by acceptance or actual use of any advertising matter.
A contract year, a 12-month period, starts from the date of the first insertion. Twelve-month periods do not overlap; in other words, space counted in one contract period to determine the rate for that period cannot be counted again toward determining the rate of the subsequent or past periods.
Cancellation of space order forfeits the right to position protection.
The Advertiser Index (if published) is prepared under the regulations and policies of the publisher as an extra service to the advertiser over and above the space order. The publisher, therefore, does not assume liability for errors in the index not withstanding all normal precautions.
The publisher's liability for any error will not exceed the charge for the advertisement in question.
The publisher assumes no liability if for any reason it becomes necessary to omit an advertisement.
When change of copy, covered by an uncancelled insertion order, is not received by the closing date, copy run in the previous issue will be inserted.
Requests for specified position at R.O.B. rates are given consideration, but no guarantee is made unless the position premium has been provided for in the contract.
Advertisements ordered set and not used will be charged for composition.
Publisher reserves right to hold advertiser and/or its advertising agency jointly and severally liable for such monies as are due and payable to the publisher.
