2.3 The Contract is formed when the Advertiser receives a Confirmation of Order from the Publisher in response to an Order Form. For the avoidance of doubt, no Contract will come into existence until a Confirmation of Order is issued by the Publisher.

3. Advertiser Warranties

The Advertiser warrants that:

3.1 in relation to an Advertisement, the Advertiser contracts with the Publisher as principal, notwithstanding that the Advertiser may be acting directly or indirectly for an Advertiser as an advertising agent or media buyer or in some other representative capacity;

3.2 the reproduction and/or publication of the Advertisement as originally submitted or as amended pursuant to Paragraphs 4.1 and 4.3 will not breach any contract or infringe or violate any copyright, trade mark or any other personal or proprietary right of any person or render the Publisher liable to any claim or proceedings whatsoever;

3.3 all information supplied by the Advertiser in connection with the Advertisement, or contained in the Advertisement is accurate, complete and true;

3.4 in respect of any Advertisement submitted for publication which contains the name or pictorial representation (photographic or otherwise) of any living person and/or any part of any living person and/or any copy by which any living person is or can be identified, the Advertiser has obtained the authority of such living person to make use of such name, representation and/or copy;

3.5 in relation to any investment Advertisement, Advertiser is, or the Advertisement has been approved by, an authorised person within the meaning of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 or the Advertisement is otherwise permitted under that Act;

3.6 the Advertisement complies with the requirements of all relevant legislation (including subordinate legislation, the rules of statutorily recognised regulatory authorities and the law of the European Union) for the time being in force or applicable in the United Kingdom; and

3.7 all advertising copy submitted to the Publisher is legal, decent, honest and truthful and complies with the British Code of Advertising Practice (as published from time to time) and all other relevant codes under the general supervision of the Advertising Standards Authority (or any body which undertakes similar activities in replacement of such body) (“Codes”).

4. Publisher’s Rights

4.1 The Publisher may reject or require to be amended, any artwork, materials and copy for or relating to an Advertisement so as to comply with legal or moral obligations placed on the Publisher or the Advertiser, or to avoid infringing a third party’s rights or the Codes.

4.2 Whilst the Publisher will use reasonable efforts to comply with the Advertiser’s wishes, it gives no representation, warranty or undertaking as to the date of insertion, the wording, or the quality of the colour or mono reproduction of the Advertisement.

4.3 Charges will be made to the Advertiser where production work of any kind is required to put the Advertisement in a form suitable for publication for any reason and at any stage. The Publisher will notify the Advertiser of such charges in writing upon receipt of Advertisement copy and these charges will be agreed prior to publication. In the event that the requirement for such production work does not become apparent to the Publisher until the manufacturing cycle begins, the Publisher will make reasonable standard charges to cover the cost of the work undertaken.

4.4 If the Publisher considers it necessary to alter the date or position of insertion or make any other alteration it shall notify the Advertiser of this as soon as it reasonably can and the Advertiser will have the right to cancel the insertion of that Advertisement if the alterations requested are unacceptable. If such changes are due to circumstances beyond the Publisher’s control and cannot be notified to the Advertiser prior to commencement of the printing cycle of the relevant publication, the Advertiser shall be liable for the Fee.

4.5 The Publisher reserves the right in its absolute discretion to cancel the Contract or to omit or suspend an Advertisement for good reason (for example if the Advertisement is libellous, defamatory, pornographic, socially unacceptable, insensitive or otherwise contrary to editorial policy). Should cancellation, omission or suspension be due to the act or default of the Advertiser or its servants or agents including the unsuitability of the Advertisement as indicated above, then the Advertiser shall pay for the space reserved for the Advertisement in full notwithstanding that the Advertisement has not appeared. Such cancellation, omission or suspension shall be notified to the Advertiser as soon as possible.

4.6 In circumstances where, in the Publisher’s discretion, the Publisher arranges to supply proofs of copy to the Advertiser, all copy must be supplied by the Advertiser to the Publisher by the last time for receiving copy as stated on the Confirmation of Order. If all copy is not received on this date, the Publisher cannot guarantee that proofs will be supplied or corrections made.

4.7 If final copy instructions are not received by the last time for receiving copy, the Publisher reserves the right in its absolute discretion to repeat the Advertiser’s existing copy in its possession where appropriate or, where the Publisher does not hold any copy, to omit the Advertisement and to charge for the space reserved in accordance with Paragraph 5.

5. Payment

5.1 Unless otherwise stipulated by the Publisher, payment is due from the Advertiser within 30 days of the date of the invoice which will be issued on publication of the Advertisement. If the Advertiser defaults in making payment of any sums by the due date, the Publisher reserves the right to require immediate payment for all Advertising space booked by the Advertiser. If such payment is not received, the Publisher shall be entitled to:

12. General

12.1 The Contract, together with any such additional terms and conditions as may be set out in the Rate Card or Order Form contains all the terms which the Publisher and Advertiser have agreed in relation to the publishing of the Advertisement. In the event of any inconsistency between these Terms and Conditions, and those set out in the Rate Card or Order Form, these Terms and Conditions shall prevail. The Advertiser acknowledges that it has not relied on any statement, promise or representation made or given by or on behalf of the Publisher which is not set out in the Contract, Rate Card or Order Form. Nothing in this Paragraph 12.1 will exclude any liability which one party would otherwise have to the other party in respect of any statements made fraudulently.

12.2 Each right or remedy of the Publisher under the Contract is without prejudice to any other right or remedy of the Publisher under this or any other contract.

12.3 Any notice in connection with the Contract will be in writing addressed to the Publisher at 20, Holly Blue Road, Wymondham, Norfolk, NR18 0XJ or in relation to the Advertiser, at the address supplied on the Order Form and will be delivered by hand, or first class or special delivery post. The notice will be deemed to have been duly served, if delivered by hand, when left at the proper address for service or if made by pre-paid, first class post or special delivery post, 48 hours after being posted.

13. If any paragraph or part of the Contract is found by any court, tribunal, administrative body or authority of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable then that provision will, to the extent required, be severed from the Contract and will be ineffective without, as far as is possible, modifying any other provision or part of the Contract and this will not affect any other provisions of the Contract which will remain in full force and effect.

14. No failure or delay by the Publisher to exercise any right, power or remedy will operate as a waiver of it nor will any partial exercise preclude any further exercise of the same, or of some other right, power or remedy.

15. The Advertiser may not assign, or transfer any of its rights or obligations under the Contract without the prior written consent of the Publisher. The Publisher may assign all or any part of the Contract without giving notice to or obtaining the consent of the Advertiser.

16. Save as provided in Paragraph 7.3, the parties to the Contract do not intend that any of its terms will be enforceable by virtue of the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 by any person not a party to it.

17. The formation, existence, construction, performance, validity and all aspects whatsoever of the Contract or of any term of the Contract will be governed by English law. The English Courts will have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any disputes which may arise out of or in connection with the Contract. The parties agree to submit to that jurisdiction.
