Terms & Conditions
Copy for your advertisement should be sent before the copy deadline date. If you have requested that your ad be designed by us, it is your responsibility to ensure that you give us the correct information about your business, i.e. contact details, prices, descriptions etc. prior to the copy deadline and you must proof-check your advert by the deadline date.
Advertisements submitted to us should be in one of the following formats: PDF, JPEG, TIFF or EPS, with a minimum of 300 DPI resolution. They may be submitted by E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We take no responsibility for the content of your advert. It is your responsibility to ensure that your advert is legal and copyright free. We cannot accept adverts which you do not have permission to copy, e.g. from another publication.
In the event of the copy not being supplied on time we reserve the right to repeat any previous advertisement.
If you wish to use your advert in another publication you will be required to ask the permission of EssentialsMAG and you may incur a charge to cover licensing fees.
No guarantee can be given for the positioning of advertisements.
We cannot guarantee the quality or colour of adverts.
You must ensure all necessary consents have been sought.
You must ensure the advert complies with all applicable laws.
We have a right to alter adverts.
We reserve the right to refuse advertisements which may be defamatory or offensive or which promote
products that may be considered offensive.
Any complaints must be raised within 2 weeks from date of invoice.
The advertiser will indemnify essentialsMAG against any damages they may sustain in consequence of publication of his/her announcement, inclusive of any errors.
We have the right to terminate the contract for reasons of non-payment or for any other reason which breaches this agreement or results in a break down of the working relationship.
We can make no guarantees that your advert will be successful; therefore we are unable to offer you a refund if you receive no response. The cost of your advert covers the cost of printing. For the best chance of success, we recommend that you advertise for three or more issues. As our readers become familiar with your advert, they are more likely to remember you, should they need your product or service at a later date.
Credit terms: Payment is required within 14 days from date of invoice.
When you book your advert, you are agreeing to pay the current advert price by the due date. The due date is either the copy deadline date or the date stated on your invoice. If payments are not made within these terms we reserve the right to re invoice you at the full rates prior to discount.
In cases of overdue accounts, we will exercise our statutory rights under the late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998. In this respect, interest at the rate of 3% above base rate per 14-day period will be added, compounded in each 14-day period on any outstanding balance from the date of the invoice until the date of receipt of payment in full. Also, please be advised that, in accordance with the European
Directive 2000/3 5/EC, a debt recovery fee of £40 will be charged.
If you wish to cancel your booking you must do so 14 days in advance of the copy deadline. If you have received discounts for a package deal then we will re invoice you the difference for the length of booking you have taken i.e. if you booked a 12 month package and cancel after 6 months then we will invoice you the difference between the 6 month and 12 month package deal.
