“Website” means any website or other digital property owned or controlled by the Media Provider including but not limited to those listed in paragraph 1 above.

3. Legally Binding Agreement

These Terms when read together with an Insertion Order constitute a legally binding agreement between the Customer and the Media Provider in relation to the Advertising referred to in that Insertion Order and the provision of any other services to the Customer by or on behalf of the Media Provider.

Furthermore, if there is more than one Publication referred to in an Insertion Order, then that Insertion Order read together with these Terms becomes a separate legally binding agreement between the Customer and the Media Provider in relation to the Advertising on each Publication.

For the avoidance of doubt, if an Insertion Order is accepted on a Run of Network basis then these Terms read together with the Insertion Order constitute a separate legally binding agreement between the Customer and the Media Provider for each Website on which Advertising is displayed.

To the extent of any inconsistency between these Terms and the terms of an Insertion Order, the terms of the Insertion Order will prevail.

4. Suitability of Advertising

The Customer warrants that it will only submit for display Advertising for its own brands, goods or services (or in the case of an advertising agency its client’s brands, goods or services).

The Customer warrants to the Media Provider that the Advertising submitted for display on the Publication is not false or misleading, defamatory, libellous or obscene, or in breach of any obligation of confidentiality or privacy or other Legal Requirement and does not infringe the Intellectual Property Rights of any third party.

The Customer indemnifies the Media Provider (and its directors, employees and agents) against all claims, demands, proceedings, costs (including solicitors and own client costs), expenses, damages, awards, judgments and any other liability whatsoever arising wholly or partially, directly or indirectly, from or in connection with a breach by the Customer of such warranties, or such warranties being untrue.

The Customer further warrants that it permits the Media Provider to do all things necessary to display the Advertising even where such display may infringe upon its own Intellectual Property Rights and acknowledges that in displaying the Advertising the Media Provider is relying on this warranty.

The Media Provider owes no duty to the Customer to review any Advertising and no review or approval by the Media Provider will affect the Customers’ responsibility for the content of the Advertising. It is the responsibility of the Customer to notify the Media Provider of any error immediately after it appears. Unless so notified, the Media Provider accepts no responsibility for any recurring error or any loss relating to any recurring error.

6. Right to Refuse or Withdraw Advertising

All Advertising submitted by a Customer for display in a Publication is subject to the Media Provider’s approval.

7. Display of Advertising

Subject to these Terms, the Media Provider will use reasonable endeavours to display Advertising in the format submitted and in accordance with the placement instructions of the Customer.

The Media Provider reserves the right to clearly distinguish that the Advertising is advertising and not editorial content, including by using headings or text such as “advertisement”, “partner content” or “sponsored by…”.

Any variation to the placement, format or content of any Advertising does not affect the Customer’s obligation to pay for the Advertising.

9. Measurement of Website Advertising

The Media Provider reserves the right to measure all Advertising on Websites (including impressions delivered and clicks achieved) through its own in-house systems or in its sole discretion other relevant industry measurement systems and results from Customer or other third party ad servers will not be accepted for invoicing purposes or any other performance assessment of the Advertising.

10. Payment for Advertising

The Customer must pay to the Media Provider the amount as set out in the Insertion Order and as provided in one or more Tax Invoices sent by the Media Provider to the Customer.

The Customer acknowledges that the Media Provider may invoice in advance of the display of Advertising and, unless specified otherwise in an Insertion Order or a Tax Invoice, payment terms are 14 days from the date of Tax Invoice.

Cancellations by the Customer must be made in writing prior to deadlines. Failure to do so will relieve the Media Provider of any obligation to comply with the cancellation request and, if Media Provider proceeds with the publication of the relevant Advertising, then Media Provider will be entitled to charge the Customer accordingly.

Interest may be charged on overdue payments at the RBA cash rate plus 4%.

11. Account Credit
