General Rate Policy
Frequency is determined by the total number of insertions run during a 12-month period. Each advertisement can be counted as one insertion toward earning a frequency rate.
Rebates and Short Orders: Within a 12-month period beginning with first insertion, advertisers will be rebated if they have placed sufficient additional insertions to warrant a lower rate than the amount they have been billed.
Advertisers will be short-rated if they do not use the amount of space on which their billings are based within the same 12-month period.
Liability: Advertisers and advertising agencies assume liability for all content of advertising printed, and are responsible for all claims made against the publisher arising from printed advertising.
Publisher's Rights: The publisher reserves the right to reject any advertisement at the publisher's discretion.
Preferred Positions: All preferred positions are non-cancellable during the duration of the contract.
Prepayment: Prepayment required to accompany ad for first-time advertisers or at the discretion of the publisher.
Bonus Distribution Issues
