2. Advertisements must accurately reflect the product and or service being advertised.

5. All claims made in advertisements must be capable of being supported by appropriate evidence and must be made available to the publisher upon request.

6. The publication of an advertisement by the publisher does not constitute endorsement of the advertiser, its products or services.

7. IN Publishing reserves the right to refuse advertising that is inconsistent with IN Publishing’s magazine editorial, advertising policy or for any other reason.


  1. Our agreement with you also includes your booking confirmation form which you complete and provide to us. By signing the booking form, you commit to the space reserved and agree to the terms and conditions of booking herewith. This agreement will commence on the date of its signing and continue until the completion of the publication of the advertisements booked.
  2. The services (the “Services”) provided include:
    a. the publication of your advertisement(s) in our publication(s) on dates agreed from time to time and subject to available space in any relevant publication; and
    b. upon request, the provision of artwork and layout design and production services. Where we provide these services, the artwork remains the property of IN Publishing unless otherwise agreed.
  3. Space reserved by an advertiser must be paid in full where the advertisement is not published due to any act or omission by the advertiser. This includes advert copy that arrives after the publication deadline date.
  4. The publisher reserves the right to increase advertisement rates at any time or to amend the terms and conditions at any time, and we will notify you of any changes when they happen. Copies of the rate card are available from us at any time, upon request.
  5. The publisher will not be liable for any loss or damage caused by amendment, error, late publication or non-publication from any cause whatsoever.
  6. The publisher will not accept liability for any error on the part of third parties or inaccurate copy instructions.

  8. Repeat adverts. If IN Publishing is asked to repeat an advert, we will always use the most recent copy published unless instructed otherwise.
  9. Series bookings may be subject to bonus inclusions. Cancellation of the series at any time will result in the forfeiture of the bonuses and may be charged retrospectively on any previous adverts which benefitted from the bonuses.
  10. You agree that you are solely responsible for the quality and accuracy of any artwork provided by you. Neither the publisher nor its contractors and sub-contractors shall be liable for any consequential loss arising from non-publication of an advert or from any errors or omissions contained in published copy/advert.

  12. You must provide your artwork by our deadline, in the format and to the quality advised by us in our media kit. Failure to do so may result in the advertisement not being printed or not being printed in the position requested or may affect the quality of the advertisement.
  13. Where we provide the services set out in Clause 9b you agree that you are solely responsible for checking and approving the accuracy and/or quality of the artwork produced and agree that your approval of the artwork is conclusive evidence that you have approved any such artwork for publication. If you fail to approve any such artwork within [24 hours] prior to publication deadlines you agree that you are deemed to have approved such artwork and we will not be liable for any errors it may contain.
  14. Subject to any express written agreement to the contrary, you agree we may change the position of your advertisement or other copy where we consider it desirable for any editorial, layout or legal requirements of our publication. If this needs to be done, we will use our best efforts to place your advertisement in a suitable alternative position and, subject to time constraints, to notify you of our decision prior to publication.

  1. We regret cancellations cannot be accepted after booking. Space reserved for which no artwork or copy is received by the copy deadline date will be charged at the agreed rate as stated on the booking form.
  2. If you dispute in good faith an amount in the account, you must notify us in writing within fourteen days setting out reasons for the dispute and the amount in dispute. Notwithstanding any dispute as to any amount of any charge, you must pay the undisputed amount of each account by the Due Date.
  3. If you do not pay the account by the Due Date, then we may charge an administration fee of $20 per month or part thereof or 1.5% per month on the outstanding amount of the invoice and suspend all or part of your Services pending payment of outstanding amounts on the account.
