  2. The advertiser/advertising agency agrees to indemnify the publisher and their agent (KM Media/ County Life Ltd) in respect of all costs, damages, or other charges falling upon the publication as a result of legal actions or threatened legal actions arising from the publication of the advertisement(s).

      The Advertiser is under a strict duty to check any proof supplied and to notify the Publisher of any amendments required prior to the copy date as a condition of the warranty contained in this clause.
      Furthermore, it is the responsibility of the Advertiser to check the first insertion of any series of advertisements and to notify the Publisher immediately of any errors.  Again this responsibility is a condition of the warranty contained within this clause.
    2. 4.2 The above warranty is given by the Publisher subject to the following conditions:
      1. 4.2.1 The Publisher shall be under no liability under the above warranty if the total price for the advertisement has not been paid by the due date for payment.

        1. The amount of a full refund of any price paid to the Publisher for the advertisement in connection with which the liability arose, or
        2. The cost of a further or corrective advertisement of the type and standard reasonably comparable to that in connection with which the liability arose.
    3. 4.2.4 The Publisher shall not be liable to the Advertiser by reason of any representation or any implied warranty, condition or other term or any duty at common law under the express terms of the contract for any consequential loss or damage (whether for loss of profit or otherwise) which arose out of or in connection with the order or its implementation except as expressly provided in these Conditions.
  4. The publisher reserves the right to:
    1. cancel the order at any time by giving reasonable notice before the next insertion, but in that event the advertiser/advertising agency shall not be liable for payment of the difference (if any) between the rates for the series specified in the order and the usual price for the series of insertions which has appeared when the order is stopped;

  8. The publisher reserves the right to require four clear days’ notice of cancellation of any order or unexpired part of an order, or in the case of an advertisement which by reason of its position is chargeable at a premium rate, not less than twenty-eight clear days’ notice before the insertion or the next insertion on payment of the difference (if any) between the rates for the series specified in the order and the usual price for the series of insertions which has appeared when the order is stopped.
  9. All gross advertising rates (except classified lineage and semi-displays) are subject to a 0.1% Advertising Standards Board of Finance (ASBOF) levy, payable by advertisers to help finance the self-regulatory system administered by the Advertising Standards Authority.
    1. the due date for payment is the last day of the month after the month in which the advertisement appeared, provided invoices and vouchers (or other proof of insertion), if required, have been dispatched not later than the 10th of the month following insertion.

The advertiser authorises the publisher to return to its originator any communication which, in the opinion of the publisher, should not be delivered to the advertiser.
    2. The publication reserves the right to disclose the name and address of advertisers and/or agencies to the police, trading standards officials, or any other relevant authority and, where the publisher in its sole discretion deems it reasonable, to other third parties.
  10. Advertisement orders are issued by an advertising agency as a principal and must be on the agency’s official form. When copy instructions not constituting an official order are issued, they shall be clearly marked “Copy instructions – not an order”.
  11. The placing of an order for the insertion of an advertisement shall amount to an acceptance of the above conditions and any conditions stipulated on an agency’s order form or elsewhere by an agency or an advertiser shall be void insofar as they are in conflict with them.
