The advertiser must submit materials by the given deadline. If materials are not received by the due date, the publisher reserves the right to use previously held copy or to compose generic advertising on behalf of the advertiser. Failure to submit advertising materials to the publisher shall not relieve the advertiser’s liability for the cost of the advertisement. Extra production work requiring artwork and/or film will be charged at cost.

The advertiser accepts their commitment to a continuous agreement, billing for each advert will take place on an annual basis in relation to the feature and or similar features of relevance, unless the advertiser submits a request in writing to cancel all adverts and billing. the advert value will be run on the credit card or debit card provided upon original invoicing and acceptance of Evolution Business Media’s Terms and Conditions.
Claims that a published advertisement contains an error shall be considered only if the advertiser has previously submitted a finished advertisement and/or approved the proof, the published advertisement deviates from the submitted copy and/or approved proof, and notification of the error is received in writing within five days of the date of the invoice. The advertiser accepts full responsibility for all content submitted to the publisher including text, images, illustrations and advertisements and agrees to indemnify the publisher against all actions, costs, claims, proceedings, damage and liabilities whatsoever incurred by the publisher as a result of publication of any material supplied or approved by the advertiser.

CONTRACT ADVERTISERS: If an advertiser cancels the balance of a contract (excluding covers or single insertion orders which cannot be cancelled) it relinquishes all rights to any to any series discount which may have been granted, and all and all advertisements published will be invoiced at the full rate.

No agent or other representative of the publisher may vary the terms of the contract in any way unless first approved in writing and signed by the publisher.
Invoices are submitted and full settlement is due 7 days after receipt of the advert invoice. Advertisers that fail to pay within 7 calendar days may be liable to a surcharge of four percent interest per month for each full month overdue. Advertisers shall reimburse the publisher for any costs and fees, including reasonable attorney’s fees, incurred by the publisher in enforcement of this contract and in collection of any sums due.
EDITORIAL MENTIONS are offered as optional added value for certain advertisers. All efforts within reason will be made to ensure the advertiser has the opportunity to supply the actual words for the editorial mention. However, the publisher cannot be liable or held responsible for the advertiser not submitting the content for the editorial mention. The advertiser therefore has full responsibility to ensure the content is provided in the time set by the publisher, which will be determined by the publisher and notified in writing to the advertiser. The publisher retains the right to sub-edit the content with no proof if the word count is above what is agreed. The advertiser will accept all responsibility in paying the invoice irrespective of whether the advertiser provided the content.
FEATURE COMPANY INVOLVEMENT AND LIABILITY TO CHANGES. While the publisher works closely with the feature company to complete an article of the highest standards and relevance, the final article appearance and text is ultimately the choice of the feature company as the main interviewee. As such the publisher does not accept any liability for final changes that have been chosen by the feature company. This includes changes to images or hyperlinks and/or alterations to text.
