ADVERTISING TERMS & CONDITIONS

These terms apply to all advertising provided to any person (‘Customer’) by Brides Without Borders (Kiruna Pty Ltd ACN 147 067 098) or a subsidiary (‘BWB’). Customer includes an advertiser on whose behalf Advertising is placed and any media company or agency that arranges the Advertising for its clients.

1. Publication of Advertising

1.1 Subject to these Terms, BWB will use its reasonable endeavours to publish advertising (‘Advertising’) in the format and in the position agreed with the Customer. ‘Advertising’ includes images submitted for publication and content or information relating to published Advertisements.

1.2 Customer grants BWB a worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive, irrevocable licence to publish, and to sub-licence the publication of, the Advertising in any form or medium, including print, online or other. Customer warrants that it is authorised to grant BWB the licence in this clause 1.

2. Right to Refuse Advertising

2.1 Neither these Terms nor any written or verbal quotation by BWB represents an agreement to publish Advertising. An agreement will only be formed between BWB and Customer when BWB accepts the Advertising in writing or generates an invoice for that Advertising.

2.2 BWB reserves the right to refuse or withdraw from publication any Advertising at any time without giving reasons (even if the Advertising has previously been published by BWB).

3. Right to vary Format, Placement or Distribution

3.1 BWB will use reasonable efforts to publish Advertising in the format and in the position requested by the Customer. However, BWB reserves the right to vary the placement of Advertising within a title or website.

3.2 BWB will not be liable for any loss or damage incurred by a Customer arising from BWB’s failure to publish Advertising in accordance with a Customer’s request.

4. Submission of Advertising

4.1 Customer warrants to BWB that the publication of the Advertising does not breach or infringe:

(a) any copyright, trade mark, obligation of confidentiality or other personal or proprietary right;

(b) any law of defamation, obscenity or contempt of any court, tribunal or royal commission;

(c) any privacy legislation or anti-discrimination legislation;

(d) any other law or applicable code.

4.2 Customer warrants that if Advertising contains the name or photographic or pictorial representation of any living person and/or any copy by which any living person can be identified, the Customer has obtained the authority of that person to make use of his/her name or representation or the copy.

4.3 If a Customer submits Advertising that looks, in BWB’s opinion, like editorial material, BWB may publish the Advertising under the heading ‘Advertising’ with a border distinguishing it from editorial.

4.4 BWB will not be responsible for any loss or damage to any Advertising material left in its control.

4.5 Advertising submitted electronically must comply with BWB’s specifications. BWB may reject the Advertising material if it is not submitted in accordance with such specifications.

4.6 Customer must not resell Advertising space to any third party without BWB’s consent.

4.7 If Advertising promotes a competition or trade promotion, Customer warrants it has obtained all relevant permits and indemnifies BWB against any loss in connection with the Advertising.

5. Classified Advertising

5.1 BWB will publish classified Advertising under the classification heading it determines is most appropriate. These headings are for the convenience of readers.

6. Online Advertising

6.1 For online banner and display Advertising, Customer must submit creative materials and a clickthrough URL to BWB within the deadline advised by BWB at its discretion before publication date.

6.2 All online Advertising (including rich media) must comply with BWB’s advertising specifications.

6.3 BWB is not liable for loss or damage from an internet or telecommunications failure.

6.4 Customer acknowledges that BWB may at its discretion include additional features or inclusions such as third party advertisements within online classified Advertising.

7. Errors

7.1 Customer must promptly check proofs of Advertising (if provided to the Customer by BWB) and notify BWB of any errors in the proofs or in published Advertising.

7.2 BWB does not accept responsibility for any errors submitted by the Customer or its agent.

8. Payment

8.1 The Customer must pre-pay for all Advertising published by BWB.

8.2 Customer must pay the full price for Advertising even if BWB varied the format or placement of the Advertising or if there is an error in the Advertising, unless the error was BWB’s fault. Customer must pay its own electronic transmission costs.

9. Liability

9.1 The Customer acknowledges that it has not relied on any advice given or representation made by or on behalf of BWB in connection with the Advertising.

9.2 BWB excludes all liability to the Customer for any costs, expenses, losses and damages incurred in relation to Advertising published by BWB, whether that liability arises in contract, tort (including by BWB’s negligence) or under statute. Without limitation, BWB will in no circumstances be liable for any indirect or consequential losses, loss of profits, loss of revenue or loss of business opportunity.

9.3 The Customer indemnifies BWB and its officers, employees, contractors and agents (the ‘Indemnified’) against any costs, expenses, losses, damages and liability suffered or incurred by the Indemnified arising from the Customer’s breach of these Terms and any negligent or unlawful act or omission of the Customer in connection with the Advertising.

10. Confidentiality

10.1 Each party will treat as confidential, and will procure that its advertising agents, other agents, and contractors (‘Agents’) treat as confidential and will not disclose, unless disclosure is required by law:

(a) the terms of this Agreement (including terms relating to volumes and pricing);

(b) information generated for the performance of this Agreement, including all data relating to advertising schedules, budgets, forecasts, booked advertising, prices or volumes;

(c) any other information that ought in good faith to be treated as confidential given the circumstances of disclosure or the nature of the information;

(d) any information derived wholly or partly for any information referred to in (a) above;

Each party agrees to take all reasonable precautions to prevent any unauthorised use, disclosure, publication or dissemination of the confidential information by or on behalf of itself or any third party.

11. General

11.1 These Terms, with any other written agreement, represent the entire agreement of the Customer and BWB for Advertising. They can only be varied in writing by an authorised officer of BWB. No purchase order or other document issued by the Customer will vary these Terms.

11.2 BWB will not be liable for any delay or failure to publish Advertising caused by a factor outside BWB’s reasonable control (including but not limited to any act of God, war, breakdown of plant, industrial dispute, electricity failure, governmental or legal restraint).
