3. Ad Preparation and Acceptance for All Placements

1. No Legal Review Publisher does not assume any obligations to perform legal review of Ads.

2. Ad Preparation On request, Publisher may assist Advertiser in preparing its Ads for publication. This assistance may include design, composition, text and artwork. Publisher retains all rights, including copyright, to all Ad layouts and other elements that represent the creative effort of Publisher or contain material prepared by Publisher. Advertiser shall not authorize photographic or other reproduction of any such Ad layout in any other publication without the express written consent of Publisher. Advertiser remains solely responsible for the contents of the Ad(s) and for compliance with any laws regulating such advertising as represented by Advertiser

3. Ad Acceptance Submission of an Ad to Publisher does not constitute a commitment by Publisher to publish or distribute the Ad. Publisher accepts an Ad only by publishing or distributing such Ad.

4. Ad Material Delivery Failure of Advertiser to meet any deadlines may result in additional charges and changes in publication or distribution dates. Advertiser shall be responsible for timely providing to Publisher all Ad Material necessary for publication and distribution of the Ads, including all necessary artwork and/or digital files, the timing and formats of which may be more specifically set forth in the Order or in Publisher’s media kit. In the event that all necessary materials are not received in time for the scheduled run date, and unless otherwise specifically instructed by Advertiser, Publisher may, at its sole discretion, use artwork or other materials from previous Ads placed by Advertiser, if applicable. Publisher will not be responsible for Ad Material that is not properly formatted or displayed or that cannot be accessed or viewed because it was not received by Publisher in the proper form, in a timely manner, or in an acceptable technical quality for mobile or online publication. Ad Materials that do not conform to the Order may result in a higher price. See Section 8.1 on Liability for Errors / Omissions / Cancellations. Publisher prohibits, and may postpone, cancel or otherwise return, any Ad Material that violates its advertising standards, including but not limited to advertising that violates applicable laws, promotes pornography, illegal goods, illegal drugs, illegal drug paraphernalia, pirated computer programs, and instructions on how to assemble or otherwise make bombs, grenades or other weapons.

5. Rejection and Alteration of Ads To ensure the integrity of our publications and for the benefit of our readers and advertisers, Publisher reserves the right to revise, reclassify, edit or reject any Ad Material or any portion thereof at any time. Publisher at all times reserves the right to refuse to publish any Ad text or other content for any reason and regardless of whether any such Ad Material was previously accepted by Publisher. Publisher reserves the right to alter any Ad Material in order for the material to conform to Publisher’s current mechanical or technical specifications. The rates stated in the Order or rate card shall remain the same upon a reduction in the size of any Ad as long as the Ad maintains the same proportion of the entire page. Print rates are based on column inch size rather than actual published size, which may have shrinkage related to the printing process.

6. Position Requests For print Ads, placement or location of advertising is not guaranteed. Any specific ad placement condition shall not be legally binding upon Publisher but will be treated as a request only and Publisher shall not be deemed in breach of this Agreement if it does not publish or distribute an Ad in a requested position.

7. Labeling of Ads When, in the opinion of Publisher, any Ad resembles news matter, such Ad shall be plainly designated as advertising by the word “Advertisement” or other such designation deemed appropriate by Publisher.

4. License to Ad Materials

Advertiser grants Publisher a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable and worldwide license to copy, store, display, print and distribute any and all Ad Materials provided by Advertiser or its agents, including but not limited to photographs, artwork, text and graphics, in any media, presently known or unknown, including but not limited to Publisher’s electronic publications on the Internet and in any archival retrieval system whether that information is digitally stored or stored on any other media.

5. Liability for Errors/Omissions/Cancellations

1. For All Placements It is Advertiser’s responsibility to check for errors in its Ads before and after publication or distribution. Advertiser shall check the first appearance of Ads for correction and Publisher shall be liable for only one incorrect publication or distribution. Publisher shall not be liable for any error if, at Publisher’s option, Publisher subsequently publishes a corrected Ad. Publisher’s liability for an error shall not exceed the cost of space occupied by the error. Publisher is not responsible for errors on copy received after deadline. Publisher assumes no financial responsibility for typographical errors, or for omission of copy of Ads. Advertiser shall be responsible for paying the rate card or media kit price for any Ads published based on Ad Materials that do not meet the criteria in the Order or media kit. For example, if the Order is for a black-and-white Ad, and Advertiser submits a color image, then Publisher will either convert the image to black-and-white, or have the right to use the color image in the Ad, and charge Advertiser the color Ad price. Publisher is not responsible for errors involving Orders, cancellations or corrections given orally. Written or facsimile confirmation of Orders, cancellations or corrections must be received prior to Publisher’s cancellation deadline. Publisher will publish and distribute Ads and bill Advertiser for all Orders that are not canceled prior to the deadline. Advertiser may be subject to a cancellation charge when such cancellation results in production delays.

2. Digital Only Except for Premium Lite advertising, if Publisher is unable to display any digital Ad for any reason, Publisher shall at its option either (a) provide substitute advertising of comparable value (“makegood”), or (b) refund to Advertiser a pro rata portion of the fee Advertiser has paid to Publisher. In the case of Premium Lite advertising, Advertiser accepts and agrees that it will receive neither makegood advertising nor a refund or have any other recourse in the event that Publisher does not reach the delivery goal or does not deliver any impressions at all. Such remedies are Advertiser’s sole remedy for Publisher’s failure to display Ads.

3. Print Only Advertiser agrees and understands that despite Publisher’s efforts, a relatively small number of daily newspapers may not carry Advertiser’s Ad as ordered, and that Advertiser’s Ad may not appear in all digital versions of the newspaper because advertising does not appear in some digital copies of the newspaper. Publisher’s liability for failure to publish or display any Ad or distribute any Ad insert shall be limited to a refund of any amount paid to Publisher for such placement. Publisher’s liability for errors or omissions in print display advertisements shall be limited to the cost of advertising space in an amount equal to the erroneous portion of the advertisement. Publisher’s liability for errors in distribution of advertising inserts shall be limited to the cost of distribution of the improperly distributed advertising inserts. Publisher shall have no liability for, and no credit shall be issued to Advertiser for, errors that do not materially affect the value of the advertisement or advertising insert or where Advertiser is responsible for the error or omission. Credits for errors in advertisements or advertising inserts materially affected by the error are allowed for the first publication or distribution only. In the event the Advertiser has paid a premium for a particular position, damages for failure to publish in a particular position shall be limited to the refund of the premium paid. With respect to advertising inserts, such reimbursement shall be limited to a refund of that portion of the premium associated with the portion of the advertising inserts that were not distributed in accordance with the specific position request. .

6. Indemnification

Advertiser shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless Publisher and its affiliates, subsidiaries, and their respective directors, officers, principals, managers, members, partners, shareholders, employees, and controlling persons and their affiliates (Publisher and each such person being an “Indemnified Party”), against any and all losses, damages, liabilities, deficiencies, claims, actions, judgments, demands, settlements, interest, awards, penalties, fines, costs, or expenses of whatever kind, including attorneys’ fees, fees and the costs of enforcing any right to indemnification (collectively, “Losses”), arising out of or resulting from its breach of this Agreement; negligence or willful act or omission of Advertiser or its personnel or affiliates in connection with its performance of its obligations under this Agreement; the content of, or representations made in any Ad or any website linked to from an Ad; and any other claims of any nature arising from or attributable to the publication or distribution of any Ad.

7. Confidentiality

Publisher may disclose or make available to the Advertiser (as the “Receiving Party”) information about its business affairs and services, confidential information and materials comprising or relating to Intellectual Property Rights, third-party confidential information and other sensitive or proprietary information, as well as the terms of this Agreement including but not limited to the pricing and rates, whether orally or in written, electronic or other form or media, and whether or not marked, designated or otherwise identified as “confidential” (collectively, “Confidential Information”). The Advertiser shall from receipt/disclosure of such Confidential Information: (x) protect and safeguard the confidentiality of the Publisher’s Confidential Information with at least the same degree of care as the Advertiser would protect its own Confidential Information, but in no event with less than a commercially reasonable degree of care; (y) not use the Publisher’s Confidential Information, or permit it to be accessed or used, for any purpose other than to exercise its rights or perform its obligations under this Agreement; and (z) not disclose any such Confidential Information to any person, except to the Advertiser’s representatives who need to know the Confidential Information to assist the Advertiser, or act on its behalf, to exercise its rights or perform its obligations under this Agreement. The Advertiser shall be responsible for any breach of this Section caused by any of its representatives or agents. At any time during or after the Term, at the Publisher’s written request, the Advertiser and its representatives shall promptly return/destroy all Confidential Information and copies thereof that it has received under this Agreement.

8. Advertiser Represented by Agency

Except with respect to Advertiser’s indemnification and confidentiality obligations, in no event will either party be liable to the other for any consequential, incidental, indirect, exemplary, special or punitive damages whatsoever (including damages for loss of use, revenue or profit, business interruption and loss of information), whether arising out of breach of contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, regardless of whether such damage was foreseeable and whether or not such party has been advised of the possibility of such damages. In no event shall Publisher be liable to Advertiser for any amount greater than the amount paid by Advertiser to Publisher under this Agreement

9. WARRANTIES

PUBLISHER EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES REGARDING ITS SERVICES OR ANY PORTION THEREOF, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARISING FROM COURSE OF DEALING OR COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, AND ANY WARRANTY REGARDING (a) THE NUMBER OF PERSONS WHO WILL ACCESS ANY ONLINE ADVERTISEMENT, ON ANY PUBLISHER WEBSITE OR THE ADVERTISER WEBSITE; (b) ANY BENEFIT ADVERTISER MIGHT OBTAIN FROM ANY ADVERTISING; AND (c) THE SPEED, ACCESSIBILITY, OPERATION OR FUNCTIONALITY OF ANY ADVERTISING TO BE DISPLAYED ONLINE..
