of advertisements in Newsquest Media Group ("Newsquest")
printed or electronic publications. Each order will form a separate
agreement and English law will apply. Any change to these conditions
must be agreed by us in writing (which means by exchange of letter,
fax or email). An "advertiser" means any person or organization
placing an advertisement on their own account or on behalf of another.
2.The advertiser confirms that the advertisement complies with all
applicable legislation, regulations and codes of practice, including
the codes supervised by the Advertising Standards Authority. We
may reject or require changes to any advertisement so as to comply
with legal or moral obligations placed on us or the advertiser;
to avoid infringing the rights of a third party or any relevant
code of practice; or to meet our published production and quality
3.The advertiser further confirms that: i) the publication of the
advertisement will not breach any contract, infringe the copyright,
trademark or other right of any third party and is not libelous
of any person; ii) all licences and consents from third parties
necessary for the publication of the advertisement have been obtained
and paid for, including consent from living persons identified in
copy or pictures (photographic or otherwise); iii) in respect of

plus VAT where applicable. For non-credit advertisers, we will cancel
publication of an advertisement that has not been paid for on time.
For credit advertisers, we will cancel publication of an advertisement
that has not been paid for on time. For credit advertisers, interest
will be charged on late payments at the rate of 3% above the Bank
of England's base lending rate from the date payment is due together
with the administration costs of collecting an overdue debt.
5. By placing an order with us, an advertising agency confirms that
it contracts as principal with full authority from its client in
all matters connected with the order and is responsible for all
payments due. We will only accept advertisements from advertising
agencies if they are recognized by us.
6. We will try to give notice of increases, but we reserve the right
to change our advertising rates at any time. This will not affect
contracts, including any fixed term agreement for a series of advertisements.
7. We will use reasonable efforts to forward replies to box numbers
within a reasonable time, but we are not responsible for any failure
or delay caused circumstances beyond our reasonable control, or
for any losses relating to an advertiser's business or any loss

be liable for the full price if the space is not sold and we will
reclaim any unearned volume-based discount. Private advertisers
booking by telephone or online may cancel in accordance with relevant
law, but no refund shall be available after the copy deadline unless
cancellation is due to our negligence. If the copy is not received
by the copy deadline, we will not be liable if the advertisement
does not appear, but the advertiser will remain liable to make full
payment for the price of the advertisement.

of an advertisement unless caused by our negligence, in which case
the advertiser will be entitled to a re-insertion or proportionate
refund. The advertiser is solely responsible for checking the advertisement
on each insertion and ordering correction where necessary. Except
where we have been negligent, we shall not be liable for an error
or misprint that, in our reasonable opinion, does not materially
detract from the advertisement. We shall not be liable in any case
for losses relating to any business or public fund-raising for the
advertiser, such as lost customers, revenue or profit.

to publish them online as well as in any booked titles. The copyright

or other materials after six months unless collected.

and materials used.
