1) Payment terms are offered based on the credit score of any client as per our credit check supplier (CreditSafe). All non-UK customers are required to pay in advance of publication in full. Subject to credit being granted, HMC’s standard terms are 50% of the total amount of the contract price agreed at the time of booking and the balance due within seven (7) days of publication. This first 50% shall constitute a non-refundable part payment of the contract price. The balance of the contract price shall be payable seven (7) days from publication of the advertisement (or first publication in the case of a series booking). If the agreement covers both print and digital formats, the balance is due seven (7) days from the occurrence of the earliest event.
2) The specification and distribution details are contained in HMC media information specific for the above publication or web listing, a copy of which the Advertiser acknowledges receipt, or confirms has read at: https://www.hurstmediacompany.co.uk/products/
3) Invoices are strictly net at the price agreed and exclusive of applicable VAT or other direct sales taxes and payable without deduction unless agency commission is agreed in writing as deductible at a specific rate.
4a) The contract shall deemed to have been made at the offices of HMC.
4b) Acceptance of these terms and conditions may be effected by written confirmation (including by email or completed order form) from the Client to HMC. Acceptance of these terms and conditions by email to the Client will constitute a legally binding agreement between the Client and HMC.
4c) By accepting these terms and conditions the Client acknowledges that this is a business to business contract and therefore is not subject to any statutory cooling off provisions or rights of cancellation. All confirmed orders are final and the Client has no rights of cancellation upon written (including by email or completed order form) confirmation of an order for services from HMC.
5) The Advertiser is solely responsible to submit to HMC suitable advertisement/advertorial copy in electronic format (in accordance with HMC’s specifications) by the specified date. The Advertiser warrants and represents that the advertisement (a) does not contravene the Trade Descriptions Act 1968 nor any other law, statute or regulations in England and/or in any other country where the advertisement might appear as a result of its publication by the Publisher (b) is not in any way defamatory or illegal or an infringement of the rights of any third party (c) complies in all respects with the British Code of Advertising Practice and any other relevant advertising standards prevailing (in England and/or in any other country where the advertisement might appear as a result of its publication by the Publisher) at the time the advertisement is published. The Advertiser will also indemnify the Publisher, its suppliers and distributors against any damage they may sustain in consequence of publication of an advertisement, (such as copyright claims by a third party).
6) All advertisements/advertorials are accepted at the publisher’s discretion as to suitability. If the Publisher exercises its rights under this paragraph at any time, the Publisher shall not be liable for costs, claims, liabilities or damages of any kind as a consequence of so doing.
7) Where the Advertiser requires HMC to create any advertisement /advertorial or other content on its behalf, Advertiser agrees to pay to HMC a production charge of 25% of the value of the contract price, or a minimum charge of £600. The service provided is outlined in HMCs Rate Pack that is available at: https://www.hurstmediacompany.co.uk/products/
8) HMC reserves the right to make grammatical changes and minor corrections to conform to HMC’s house style.
9) In the event that HMC’s stated payment terms are not met, the entitlement of the Client to any discounts applied to the Client’s original booking(s) is forfeit, and the price for the advertisement insertions will default to that published on the current ratecard at the time of booking. In the event of late payment (i.e. payment outside of HMC’s agreed payment terms), HMC reserves the right to claim for payment in full from the Advertiser as per the current published ratecard and reserves the right to charge statutory interest on that amount. Statutory interest is calculated at the rate of 8% per annum above the Bank Of England’s base rate, and is calculated daily. If HMC exercises its right to charge statutory interest, it is calculated from the day after due date until payment is received by HMC, and before as well as after judgement if applicable.
HMC’s invoice for interest charges shall be final and binding upon the Client.
10) All reasonable efforts will be made by HMC to fulfil its obligations, but should HMC be prevented or delayed in carrying out any of their obligations by reason of an Act of God, war, lock-out, fire, flood, delays in transit, strikes, riots, postal delay or any other unexpected or exceptional causes or circumstances beyond their control the time for delivery shall be extended until a reasonable time after the event preventing or interfering with the due performance of HMC’s obligations has ceased, and in no circumstances is HMC to be liable for any consequential loss or damage suffered by the Advertiser as a result thereof. For clarity, HMC will not be liable for any loss occasioned by the failure of an advertisement to appear from any cause whatsoever.
11) The terms of the contract as stated in HMC’s official Order constitute the entire contract between the Advertiser and HMC. Any variations to the contract terms are only valid if signed by a director of HMC.
12) Every effort will be made to meet the expressed wish of an Advertiser regarding specified positions, but no guarantee can be given unless a supplementary positioning charge has been agreed.
13) While HMC will take reasonable care of any material supplied by the Advertiser whilst in HMC’s custody, HMC shall not be liable for loss or damage of material in transit or whilst with any third party.
14) In the event that the Advertiser is in default of its obligations under paragraph 5 (or gives notice that it does not intend to fulfil such obligations prior to the date for submission of advertising copy) the Advertiser agrees to pay HMC as liquidated damages the lesser of:
a) 100% of HMC’s rate card price for the advertisement (or aggregate price in the case of a series of advertisements) prevailing at the date of this order or;
b) the contract price as agreed between HMC and Advertiser credit being given for any payments made by the Advertiser in respect of this order prior to the default or notice.
15) In the event that the Client enters into liquidation (whether compulsory or voluntary); company administration; or is placed into receivership; or comes to any arrangement with its creditors, whether formal or informal; or becomes unable to pay its liabilities as and when they fall due; or is presented with a valid winding-up petition by the court; or is subject to a successful winding-up petition by the court, those in control of the Client at the time (i.e. directors/partners/owners for, respectively, a limited company/partnership/sole trader), warrant that all outstanding debts will be paid to HMC, and undertake to fulfil the payment liability personally, on a joint and several basis.
16) In the event of any conflict between these standard terms and conditions and HMC’s official order form, the order shall prevail.
17) HMC reserves the right to vary date of publication or advertising going live on the website by not more than +/-21 days and will notify Advertiser if there is a change to the scheduled date as soon as is reasonably practicable. In any event, time shall not be of the essence as regards the publication date.
18) HMC does not accept liability for printing errors, including variations in the quality of colour reproduction, and such variations shall not be deemed cause for the Advertiser withholding payment.
19) HMC reserves the right to charge the single insertion rate for each advertisement published in the event of the Advertiser failing to complete a series booking.
20) All disputes or complaints must be made in writing to HMC as soon as the Advertiser is aware and in any event within 28 days of publication.
