14. Applicable Law
These Terms of Service shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England and any dispute shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
All online advertising orders are subject to these terms and conditions (‘these Conditions’) which shall apply to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions and no variation or addition thereto shall be effective unless specifically agreed to in writing by the Publisher. Any other terms or conditions sought to be imposed by the Advertiser are expressly excluded.
1. In these Conditions attaching to Online Advertising Contracts: ‘Publisher’ means SheerLuxe Ltd Limited and ‘Advertiser’ means the person booking the advertising space including Advertising Agents and Independent Media Buyers. Advertising Agents and Independent Media Buyers shall for the purpose of these Conditions act as principals on their own behalf for all purposes connected herewith. ‘Rate Card’ means the Publisher’s current scale of charges for advertisements, a current copy of which may be obtained from the Publisher. ‘Contract’ means a legally binding booking accepted by the Publisher in accordance with Condition 2 for publication of an Advertisement. ‘Copy’ means all material provided by an Advertiser with the intention that such material should appear on the Publisher’s online property. ‘Advertisement’ means advertising messages to be displayed on a website, email or otherwise. ‘Cancellation’ of a Contract means cancellation of either all or part of the remaining unperformed part of the Contract unless the context of the relevant condition makes it clear that cancellation of only a specific insertion(s) is referred to.
SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION OF ADVERTISEMENTS
2. The issue of a Rate Card does not constitute an offer by the Publisher to contract. A Contract is made only by the Publisher’s acceptance of the Advertiser’s order as effected by the Publisher issuing and receiving an Acknowledgement of Order Form.
3. Advertisement rates are subject to revision at any time and the price prevailing at the time the Contract is made binds the Publisher only in respect of the agreed booking as confirmed by the Publisher’s Acknowledgement of Order Form.
4. All orders are accepted subject to acceptance of Copy by the Publisher, as indicated in Condition 7, and if it is intended to include in an Advertisement a competition or a special offer of merchandise, other than that normally associated with the advertised product, full details of such competitions or special offers must be submitted by the Advertiser in writing at the time the order is negotiated.
5. It is the Advertiser’s responsibility to check the correctness of the Advertisement. The Advertiser warrants that any Advertisement submitted by it for publication shall comply with all applicable laws, legislation, regulations, codes of practice and is not an infringement of any other party’s rights. The Advertiser hereby grants a world-wide non-exclusive, fully paid licence to reproduce and display the Advertisement (including all contents, trademarks and brand features contained therein). The Advertiser will indemnify the Publisher fully for all costs, expenses, damages or liability whatsoever (including legal costs and awards ordered against the Publisher) in respect of any claim made against the Publisher arising from the Advertisement or its publication or as a result of any breach or non-performance of any of the representations, warranties or other terms contained herein or implied by law.
6. The Advertiser warrants that all copy submitted to the Publisher (and any linked website) is legal, truthful, honest and decent and otherwise complies with the British Code of Advertising, Sales Promotion and Direct Marketing and all other relevant and applicable codes, guidance or regulations under the remit of the Advertising Standards Authority.
7. The Publisher reserves the right in its absolute discretion to require the Advertiser to amend any artwork, materials or copy for and relating to any Advertisement or to cancel any Contract or to omit or suspend an Advertisement (for example if it is libellous, unlawful, defamatory, pornographic, socially unacceptable, insensitive or otherwise contrary to editorial policy). Should cancellation, omission or suspension be due to the act or default of the Advertiser or its servants or agents including the unsuitability of the Advertisement as indicated above, then the Advertiser shall pay for the space reserved for the Advertisement in full notwithstanding that the Advertisement has not appeared. Such cancellation, omission or suspension shall be notified to the Advertiser as soon as reasonably possible.
8. All contents of Advertisements are subject to the Publisher’s approval. The Publisher does not undertake to review the contents of any Advertisement and any such review of and/or approval by the Publisher will not be deemed to constitute an acceptance by the Publisher that such Advertisement is provided in accordance with these Conditions nor will it constitute a waiver of the Publisher’s rights hereunder. The Publisher reserves the right at any time in its absolute discretion to:
8.1 Reject or cancel any Advertisement, Order, URL link, space reservation or position commitment;
or 8.2 Remove any Advertisement from any of the Publisher’s properties or any page.
9. Except as otherwise expressly provided, positioning of Advertisements within the Publisher’s properties or on any page is at the sole discretion of the Publisher, and the Publisher will not be prohibited from also carrying Advertisements for any product or business competitive to the product or business of the Advertiser.
10. The Publisher does not warrant the date or dates of insertion of the Advertisement(s) and does not warrant that the Advertisement(s) will not be displayed after the end date specified. However, the Publisher will use reasonable efforts to comply with the Advertiser’s wishes in these regards.
11. The Advertiser warrants that any Advertisement in relation to any investment or financial promotion (as defined under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000) has been approved by an authorised person within the meaning of the Act or the Advertisement is otherwise permitted under the Act, under the Financial Promotion Order 2001 or any other legislation subordinate to the Act.
12. Complaints concerning mistakes or problems with the production on the website must be received in writing by the Publisher not more than 14 days after the first publication of the Advertisement, failing which the Advertisement shall be deemed to be accepted by the Advertiser.
13. For email placements, no client changes will be made on the day of broadcast. If approval is required by the client and the client does not sign off the day prior to broadcast then SheerLuxe reserves the right to delay the coverage until the next feasible date (dependent on availability). If a client misses a promotional date as a result of failing to sign off the day prior to the agreed broadcast date they will not be entitled to a refund.
13. The Publisher will exercise reasonable care and skill in the handling and publishing of the Advertisement but where the Advertisement is not published in the manner specified in the Contract (including failure to deliver the number of impressions provided in the Contract), whether through any failure (technical or otherwise) or negligent act or omission on the part of the Publisher or any third party, the Publisher’s liability will be limited (at the option of the Publisher) to either:
(a) publishing the Advertisement (or a replacement Advertisement if provided by the Advertiser) as soon as is reasonably practicable in the period following the period during which the Advertisement was scheduled to run and for such time as is necessary to generate a number of substitute impressions equal to the shortfall;
or (b) refund to the Advertiser that proportion of the amounts paid which relate to those Advertisements and/or impressions which were not provided or, if the relevant amounts were not paid by the Advertiser, agree that such amounts will not be due or payable.
The Publisher shall not be liable for any indirect, special or consequential loss or damage arising from any failure to publish an Advertisement as agreed with the Advertiser, including, but without limitation, any late or incorrect publication, any non-publication or inaccurate reproduction of the Advertisement, whether caused by the Publisher’s error or negligence or by any reason whatsoever. The Publisher shall not be liable whatsoever in respect of any error or omission in respect of publishing the Advertisement which is not notified to the Publisher in writing within one month of the actual publication date of the Advertisement.
14. The Advertiser may cancel any Contract eight weeks prior to the agreed date of publication of the Advertisement. Cancellation will be effective when written notice is received by the Publisher. The Publisher may cancel any Contract five working days prior to the agreed date of publication of the Advertisement.
15. If the Advertiser cancels any Contract in accordance with Condition 13, he relinquishes any right to that series discount (if any) to which he was previously entitled and Advertisements will be paid for at the appropriate rate. A new invoice will be issued for any surcharges relating to Advertisements that have already been invoiced at the discounted rate. The payment date for any previous invoices remains unaffected.
16. If the Advertiser fails to provide the Publisher with written notice of cancellation of the Advertisement by the relevant deadline, the Advertiser shall remain liable for payment of the Advertisement.
17. Copy must be supplied by the Advertiser to the Publisher by the last day for receiving Copy as stated by the Publisher, failing this, the Publisher cannot guarantee that proofs will be supplied or corrections made. Copy must be supplied to the Advertiser in the following terms:
(a) all Rotating GIF or 3rd Party Served creatives must be sent 2 working days prior to planned date of publication;
(b) Rich media creatives must be sent 5 working days prior to planned date of publication;
(c) Advertiser assets for inclusion in creatives to be produced by the Publisher must be sent 2 weeks prior to planned date of publication;
(d) Advertiser assets for inclusion in content pages must be sent 5 working days prior to planned date of publication. For content pages and Publisher produced creatives, the Publisher offers a maximum of two changes between initial conception and publication. Any further changes will be charged additionally;
and (e) All ad creative/tags must be received by midday on the last working day prior to the deadlines set out at 15 (a), (b), (c), and (d). Any Advertisements received after this time will have impressions deducted on a daily basis from the booked total for each day the Advertisement is late. A day is measured from midday one day to midday the next. E.g. if an Advertisement is received at 1pm on the planned publication date, 2 days’ penalty is measured.
Page building times are outlined in the Ad Specs page available at SheerLuxe.com/ad-specs.
If these terms are not adhered to pages may go live late as a result. No extra days will be allocated to the campaign, and the supporting Advertising will be delivered within the rest of the campaign period, unless Advertisements are sent over late, then see above. The Publisher agrees where possible to change Advertisement creatives on an advertising campaign a maximum of once per week.
For email placements, no client changes will be made on the day of broadcast. If approval is required by the client and the client does not sign off the day prior to broadcast then SheerLuxe reserves the right to delay the coverage until the next feasible date (dependent on availability). If a client misses a promotional date as a result of failing to sign off the day prior to the agreed broadcast date they will not be entitled to a refund.
Any Contract that needs to have start and/or end dates amended, will have up to 5 working days prior to the campaign start date to do so. When a campaign has started, the end date may not be moved forward unless agreed to by the Publisher.
If Copy instructions are not received by the last day for receiving Copy the Publisher reserves the right in its absolute discretion to repeat Advertiser’s existing Copy in its possession where appropriate or where the Publisher does not hold any Copy to omit the Advertisement and to charge for the space reserved in accordance with Condition 7. For all Copy supplied, the Advertiser must adhere to the specification issued by the Publisher. In the event that the Advertiser’s files do not comply with the specification, the Publisher reserves the right in its absolute discretion to reject the Copy and the Advertiser will be asked to re-supply. If, due to technical, time or other reasonable constraints, the Publisher has to repair or rectify the file, the Publisher may (at its discretion) notify the Advertiser and shall not be liable for any inaccurate reproduction of the Advertisement or any resulting costs whether direct or indirect.
18. Copy supplied to the Publisher by electronic means must be free from software viruses or any other malicious computer code or corruption which will harm the Publisher’s computer systems.
19. Advertiser’s property, originals, artwork, type, mechanicals, positives etc are held by the Publisher at the owner’s risk and should be insured by the Advertiser against loss or damage from whatever cause. After performance of the Contract relating to such materials, the Advertiser shall be responsible for collecting all such materials which it requires from the Publisher’s premises, failing which, the Publisher reserves the right to destroy all artwork, film, copy or other materials which has been in its possession for more than three months and no liability shall be attached to the Publisher in respect of such destruction.
20. All gross advertising rates are subject to the current Advertising Standards Board of Finance surcharge payable by the Advertiser. Where orders are placed by an Advertising Agency or Independent Media Buyer, the Agency or Media Buyer will be responsible for collecting this surcharge and paying it to the Advertising Standards Board of Finance. Where the person booking the Advertisement is not an Advertising Agency or Independent Media Buyer the Publisher will calculate the appropriate surcharge at the current rate and pay this direct to the Advertising Standards Board of Finance. Without prejudice to the indemnity contained in Condition 5, the Advertiser will indemnify the Publisher for any claim made against it in respect of the non payment by the Advertiser of such surcharges to the Advertising Standards Board of Finance.
21. Advertisements will be published to the representation as provided by file (or other accepted medium) by the Advertiser and the Publisher shall not be liable for any lack of clarity or other error in representation that results from the representation of the Advertisement as it was provided by the Advertiser. Reasonable standard charges will be made to the Advertiser where production work of any kind is required to put the Advertisements in a form suitable for publication for any reason and at any stage. The Publisher will notify the Advertiser of such charges in writing upon receipt of advertising Copy.
22. Except as otherwise expressly agreed in the Contract, the Advertiser acknowledges that the Publisher has not made any guarantees with respect to usage statistics or levels of impressions for any Advertisement. The Publisher provides the Advertiser with estimated usage statistics only as a courtesy to the Advertiser and the Publisher will not be held liable for any claims relating to any usage statistics however supplied. The Advertiser acknowledges that delivery statistics provided by the Publisher are the official, definitive measurements of the Publisher’s performance on any delivery obligations agreed in the Contract. The processes and technology used to generate such statistics have been certified and audited by an independent agency. No other measurements or usage statistics (including those of the Advertiser or a third party ad server) will be accepted by the Publisher or have bearing on this Agreement.
23. In the event that any guaranteed total impressions (‘GTI’) figure is not reached, the Publisher reserves the right to either refund a proportion of the fee, pro rata to the shortfall, or to extend the period the Advertisement is displayed until the GTI target is reached. In the event that the GTI figure is reached prior to the agreed period the Advertisement will be displayed, the Publisher shall give the Advertiser notice thereof and reserves the right to cease publication of the Advertisement.
24. Advertising performance reports concerning the Advertisement creatives are generated by the Publisher’s preferred third party advertising delivery system. The figures in such reports shall be the official definitive measure of the Advertiser’s performance and the billing of costs will be based, where applicable, on these figures. Upon reasonable request, and at the Advertiser’s cost, the Publisher shall provide monthly website traffic reports to the Advertiser.
25. If a discrepancy occurs between the number of booked creative types (as set out in the creative information section on the order) and actual delivery by the Publisher, through the under-delivery of advertising due to a default by the Publisher of its obligations under this agreement, a credit will only be given to the Advertiser when such under-delivery is:
(a) in excess of 5% (five percent) of the Advertiser’s total booked creative types on gif advertising formats; and
(b) in excess of 10% (ten percent) of the Advertiser’s total booked creative types on non-gif advertising formats. 26. In the event of any disagreement regarding the number of impressions served, the Advertiser agrees that the figures provided by the Publisher or in the case of rich media, the third party provider of the Advertisements in question, for example MediaMind, will be final and binding.
27. There is no obligation on the Publisher to supply screen shots to the Advertiser and their absence shall not affect the Advertiser’s liability for the agreed charge.
28. In the event of any material breach of these Conditions by the Advertiser, uncured within 10 working days of notice thereof, the Publisher reserves the right to terminate this Agreement immediately, to withdraw the Advertisement accordingly, and to invoice the Advertiser for the full amount payable by the Advertiser notwithstanding that the term of the Contract may not yet be finished nor GTI targets have been reached.
TERMS OF PAYMENT
29. (a) Unless otherwise stipulated by the Publisher, payment is due to be received from the Advertiser within 30 days from date of the invoice or on receipt of invoice prior to the campaign / activity.
