Clients are defined as the person or company with whom goods and services are to be supplied. “Goods and/or services” shall be known to be any item which the Company supplies to any of its clients for which it is agreed that charges may or may not be applicable. Without limitation, advertising space, graphic design services and leaflet distribution are included in this definition.
The copy deadlines for all advertisements and editorial features are indicated on Grantham Now website and informed at initial consultation. It cannot be guaranteed that copy received after this date will be included in the requested publication, although everything will be done to accommodate late requests.
All adverts and editorials will be proofed to clients prior to publication of Grantham Now. It is the client’s responsibility to ensure that any copy proofed and signed off is accurate, legal and copyright free. Grantham Now will take no responsibility for loss or damage resulting in an advert being incorrect.
Copy can be supplied in any of the following formats: Microsoft software, JPEG, GIF, press ready PDF (300dpi or above). Quality cannot be guaranteed in the event of a customer supplying their own advert, although every attempt will be made to ensure the highest standards of quality are achieved.
Grantham Now reserves the right to refuse advertisements which may be defamatory or offensive or which promote products that may be considered indecent or illegal. Grantham Now makes no guarantee that advertising will be successful.
The copyright of adverts designed by Grantham Now on behalf of clients is owned solely by Grantham Now. If clients wish to use adverts designed by Grantham Now in another publication, clients will be required to ask the permission of Grantham Now. Draw down fees are not usually charged, but Grantham Now reserves the right to charge a fee of £100 where permission is not obtained to use the advert in other publications. Grantham Now does not charge an advert design fee.
All invoices raised by Grantham Now are due for payment 7 days from the date of the invoice unless consent is agreed with clients prior to publication, or terms of any account facility between Grantham Now and clients expressly states. A run of advertising over a number of issues will be invoiced separately after each publication.
Invoices that are overdue for a period in excess of 14 days from the invoice due date for any services will be subject to credit control procedures which may or may not include the filing of a County Court Order. Subsequent County Court Judgements and Warrants may or may not be issued. Furthermore, at The Company’s sole discretion, a Statutory Demand under Section 123 (1) (a) or 222 (1) (a) of the Insolvency Act 1986 may be issued for non-payment of Goods and/or Services delivered. If this does not satisfactorily resolve any non-payment, then a Winding Up Order may be issued in accordance with the relevant Acts of Parliament such as the Insolvency Act 1986, the Insolvency Rules 1986, Council Regulations (EC) No. 1346/2000 (‘the EC Regulation’) and the Companies Act 1985.
Grantham Now reserves the right to charge clients for any external credit control services used in relation to recovery of outstanding debt and Grantham Now also reserves the right to charge compound interest on any debts older than 14 days from the due date on the invoice.
Advertising space should be cancelled by the deadline dates informed to clients and detailed on Grantham Now’s website. Cancellation after the deadline dates will result in a client being charged for their advert. Late cancellation or cancellation of a pre-booked run of advertising in general will result in a cancellation fee of 50% of the total value of the booking being levied on the client; including £65 for the cost of any free editorial received during the run of advertising should the client not fulfil his obligations to the run of adverts.
