Ad Terms & Conditions
These advertising terms and conditions shall apply to all print and digital advertisements ("Advertisements") that are submitted to Endeavor Business Media, LLC and its subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively “Endeavor” and sometimes referred to herein as “Publisher”), and which Endeavor accepts for publication. No terms or conditions in any insertion orders, oral instructions, reservation orders, blanket contracts, instructions or documents that conflict with or alter these terms and conditions will be binding on Publisher, unless authorized in writing by a senior executive of Publisher. For purposes of these terms, "Advertiser" means the ultimate customer whose products or services are advertised in the Advertisement as well as any agent, broker, or other intermediary submitting an Advertisement (sometimes referred to separately as “Agency”). For the avoidance of doubt, Advertiser and its Agency, if any, shall be jointly and severally liable to Endeavor for any obligation, including payment, arising under these terms. Submission of an insertion order for placement of advertising with the Publisher constitutes acceptance of these terms and conditions, which terms may be revised by Publisher from time to time upon written notice to Advertiser.
Payment is due, net, 30 days; 15% of gross billing is permitted to recognized advertising agencies on space, color and position charges, provided the account is paid in full within 30 days of invoice date. Publisher reserves the right to hold advertiser and/or its advertising agency jointly and separately responsible for payment. Advertisers and agencies assume liability for all content (including text, representation and illustrations) of advertisements and assume responsibility for any claims arising there from and made against the Publisher. Publisher will not be bound by conditions, printed or otherwise, appearing in ad orders or copy instructions when such conditions conflict with the Publisher’s stated policies; and reserves the right to reject any advertising that is not in keeping with the Publisher’s standards. Publisher is not responsible for either the content or the opinions expressed within paid advertisements, or for any errors they may contain.
Rates are subject to change without notice; provided, that rates for submitted insertion orders will be billed in accordance with the published rates at the time the insertion order is accepted by Publisher. Applicable production charges will be billed at $85 per hour. No cancellations are accepted after the closing date. Advertisers will be short-rated if within a 12-month period from the date of the first insertion they do not use the amount of space upon which their rates of been based. Advertisers will be rebated if, within a 12-month period from the date of the first insertion, they have used sufficient additional space to warrant a lower rate.
Billing Instructions: Payment will be made monthly throughout the course of any campaign, upon completion of the activity for the Month. Advertiser will be billed for lost frequency discount if, within a 12-month period from date of the first insertion, they do not use the amount of inventory upon which their billing rate was based.
Campaign Delivery: All third-party-delivered campaigns will be granted an over-delivery up to 10%. This will stand as the maximum required delivery for all discrepancies.
IMPORTANT Advertising Materials Instructions: GIF or JPEG banners must be delivered to your sales contact at least five (5) business days prior to campaign start. Third-party ad tags, rich media creative or creative for newsletters/e-blasts must be delivered to your sales contact at least five (5) business days prior to campaign start. If Advertising Materials are late, Advertiser is still responsible for the media purchased pursuant to the Insertion Order and will be billed consistent with the terms of the Insertion Order. Our firm is reserving ad inventory and will not be making it available to other clients. As a result, if we are required to modify the campaign start and billing period or cancel the campaign within 30 days of the reserved flight date, you may be charged a $500 administrative fee.
Make-goods: Make-goods are negotiated on per incident basis. Client is responsible for maintaining valid links.
Cancellation Clause: 30 day advance written notice is required to cancel any advertisement, except for campaigns running less than 30 days, which require 14 days advance written notice.
Client agrees to not use any banners designed by Endeavor Business Media in any publication or website that directly or indirectly competes with Publisher. All result data is proprietary and will not be shared with anyone but the Advertiser.
Advertisers who sign annual agreements will have first-right-of-refusal for proprietary fixed positions within a publication or website. First-right-of-refusal must be exercised at least 3 months prior to the end of the annual campaign, otherwise it is forfeited.
