Magazine - Terms and Conditions

DEFINITIONS

“The Business” shall be defined as including the names The Quercy Local, The Perigord Local and Anna Atkinson, and shall include any other related trading styles. “The Client” shall be defined as the person or company with whom goods and services are to be supplied. “Goods and/or services” shall be known to be any item which the Business supplies to any of its Clients for which it is agreed that charges may or may not be applicable. These services include, but are not limited to, advertising space, graphic design services and leaflet distribution. All contracts are formed only by the express agreement of the “business’ nobody may bind the company on their behalf.

COPY DEADLINE/FORMAT

The copy deadline for all advertisements and editorial features is stated in the copy deadlines published on the website www.quercylocal.com.  This deadline for new business may be revised forward—details will appear on the website. It cannot be guaranteed that copy received after this date will be included in the requested publication(s) although everything will be done to accommodate late requests.  All adverts that we create will sent to the client (by email) for approval prior to publication. If the client does not respond, acceptance will be assumed.  It is The Client’s responsibility to ensure that any material agreed is accurate, legal and copyright free. The Business takes no responsibility for loss or damage resulting in an advert being incorrect, having been proofed by The Client. No claim for consequential loss will be considered, however this is caused.

Adverts booked for a series of editions can be changed for the different editions.  However, it remains the responsibility of The Client to advise us of any changes prior to the appropriate copy deadlines.  For significant changes in design we reserve the right to apply a design fee.

Photographs, or completed adverts can be supplied in any of the following formats:  .JPEG, PDF (300dpi or above). The Business can accept no responsibility for poor quality printing results if supplied images/formats are of inferior quality. The Business reserves the right to refuse advertisements which may be defamatory or offensive or which promotes products that may be considered indecent or illegal, or where the quality of the advert is potentially damaging to the magazine’s appearance. The Business makes no guarantee that advertising will be successful. For the best chance of success, the business recommends that advertising is booked for three or more issues. It is a proven theory that repetition brings familiarity and trust.

We can arrange the professional design of your advert for a fee.  See our advertising rates for full details.

COPYRIGHT

The copyright of adverts designed by The Business on The Client’s behalf is owned solely by The Business. If The Client wishes to use adverts designed by The Business in another publication The Client will be required to ask the permission of The Business, which will be given in writing and a release fee may be charged. The Business reserves the right to charge a fee of not more than £100 for the use of adverts (whether permission is sought or not).

INVOICES AND PAYMENT

All invoices raised by The Business shall become due for payment by the date shown on the invoice.   If adverts are booked for more than one edition the Client may opt to either pay the total cost at once or to receive invoices for each individual edition and in some cases in by a number of invoices sent over the period of the advertising plan. The payment months will be shown clearly on the invoices.  We reserve the right to charge a slightly higher amount for the first of a series of adverts and then reduce this over the time the adverts are being shown.   We reserve the right to remove adverts, from the magazines, which are not paid for before the magazine goes to print.  

Invoices which are unpaid will be subject (at the discretion of the Editor) are subject to penalty charges. The Client remains responsible for the cost of any external credit control services used in relation to recovery of The Client’s outstanding debt. 

PAYMENT METHODS

Cheques should be made payable to A Atkinson and sent to The Quercy Local, Las Razes, 82190, Touffailles.  Payment can be paid by Paypal or debit/credit card, by simply following the ‘Pay Now’ instruction on the electronic invoices.   The invoices also provide details of a bank account for bank transfers to be arranged. For payments by direct debit mandate we use the services of ‘Go Cardless’.

CANCELLATION

Advertising space should be cancelled by the copy deadline of the month preceding publication. Late cancellation may result in full payment being levied on The Client. Where discounts have been given for multiple insertions, cancelling part of a run may mean a revision of the original charges, where a balance of account remains outstanding this will remain due to The Business.
