  1. The confirmation of the Advertisement Order Form, in writing or via email, constitutes an acceptance of these terms and conditions.

  3. The Advertiser is obliged to ensure correct, complete and timely delivery of advertisements before the artwork deadline date. If artwork is not supplied by this date, the Publisher will, at their discretion and where reasonably possible only, attempt to produce artwork on behalf of the Advertiser or repeat the most recent previous artwork. If it is not reasonably possible to use alternative artwork on behalf of the Advertiser, the Publisher at their discretion may attempt to re-schedule the advertisement. If it is not reasonably possible to reschedule the advertisement, for the avoidance of doubt, no refund or discount shall apply.
