Advertising Policy and Production Requirements
Advertising Policy Instructions regarding contracts, insertion orders, and cancellations must be made in writing. All copy, including all graphics, is subject to the publisher’s approval. The publisher reserves the right to refuse any advertisement at any time that does not meet MACE Media standards. Frequency rates are based upon a supplied written contract for multiple insertions during a single publishing year. To qualify for multiple-insertion discounts, all insertions during the publication year must appear on one contract. Advertisers billed at contract rate who fail to fulfill such contract will be billed at the rate corresponding to the actual number of insertions. When space is contracted and no copy instructions are received by closing date, copy in a previous issue will be repeated. Any advertising copy that might be mistaken as an article, commentary, or other non-advertising material must be clearly marked “advertisement”. Advertisers will be invoiced for advertising space and related charges during the month of issuance. Ads must be paid prior to the issue going to print. Advertisers and advertising agencies assume liability for all content (text, representation and illustrations) of advertising and for any claims against the publisher arising from such advertising. The publisher will not be held responsible for the reproduction quality if ad material fails to conform to the publisher’s mechanical requirements, or if ad material is not received by the copy-due date. The publisher’s liability for any error will not exceed the cost of the space. Advertisers and their agencies have dual liability to MACE Media in the event of non-payment for advertising space. That is, the agency is responsible for the client, and vice versa.
