Contract & Copy Regulations

The publisher reserves the right to reject any advertising, or to request alteration in content prior to publication, if said advertising is not deemed suitable for the magazine. All advertising is accepted and published upon the representation that the advertiser and its agency have the right to publish the contents thereof. In consideration of the publisher’s acceptance of such advertising for publication, the advertiser and its agency will indemnify and save the publisher harmless from and against any loss or expense by reason of any claims arising out of publication. The publisher reserves the right to place the word “Advertisement” over advertising matter that simulates editorial content or is not clearly identified as advertising. The publisher assumes no liability for errors in key numbers, back-to-back coupon placement, or index to advertisers. Publisher’s liability to advertiser or agency on account of errors in or omissions of the advertising material described herein shall in no event exceed the amount of publisher’s regular charges for insertion of the advertisement in which the error occurred in the issue or issues of Professional BoatBuilder. When changes or copy are not received by closing date, copy run in a previous issue will be inserted at the discretion of the publisher. Short-rate invoice will be issued upon cancellation of contract or when frequency discount cannot be earned. Positioning of advertisements is at the discretion of the publisher. Position requests will be complied with whenever possible, but cannot be guaranteed. No conditions other than those set forth here or in the rate card shall be binding on the publisher unless specifically agreed to in writing by the publisher. The publisher will not be bound by conditions printed or appearing on order blanks or copy instructions which conflict with provisions of this page or the rate card. Space contracts extending into issues where new rates become effective shall not protect advertiser from incurring new rates. Advertisers falling past due in payments to any of our magazines may jeopardize exhibit rights at any of our shows.
