PUBLISHER’S PROTECTION CLAUSE

Rates and conditions given in this rate card are subject to change without notice. Contracts, orders or copy instructions containing conditions which conflict with the publisher’s policies will not be considered binding on the publisher. Orders containing incorrect rates will be billed at rates in force at the time. Any tax hereafter applicable to advertising will be added to the prevailing rates. The publisher reserves the right to hold advertisers and/or their advertising agency jointly and severally liable for such monies as are due and payable to the publisher. Advertiser and advertising agency recognize and accept that the following language appears within the publication: “All statements, including product claims, are those of the person or organization making the statement or claim. The publisher does not adopt any such statement or claims as its own, and any such statement or claim does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the publisher.” Advertiser and advertising agency accept and assume liability for all content (including text, representations, illustrations, opinions and facts) of advertisements printed, and also assume responsibility for any claims made against the publisher arising from or related to such advertisements. In the event that legal action or claim is made against the publisher arising from or related to such advertisements, advertiser and advertising agency agree to fully defend, indemnify and hold harmless the publisher, and to pay any judgment, expenses and legal fees incurred by the publisher as a result of said legal action or claim. The publisher reserves the right to reject any advertising which it feels is not in keeping with the publication’s standards. Failure by publisher to insert in any particular issue or issues invalidates the order for insertion in the missed issue, but shall not constitute a breach of contract. The publisher requires that proof of postal clearance be provided prior to publication of any advertisement containing contest copy. The word “advertisement” will be placed above or below any copy, which in the publisher’s opinion resembles editorial matter. The publisher assumes no responsibility for improper use of coupons forming part of an advertisement. Publisher is not liable for delays in delivery and/or non-delivery in the event of Act of God, action by any government or quasi-governmental entity, fire, flood, insurrection, riot, explosion, embargo, strikes, whether legal or illegal, labor or material shortage, transportation interruption of any kind, work slowdown, or any condition beyond the control of publisher affecting production or delivery in any manner.
