Advertising Terms & Conditions and Standard Conditions of Acceptance

These conditions apply to the placing of an order for the publication of an advertisement with MW Energy Publishing Limited whose company registration number is 9721072 (“Publisher”) either printed or electronically. An “Advertiser” means the party who books advertising space and/or any agent acting on his behalf. By placing an order, an Advertiser agrees to these conditions.


1. Content

1.1 It is the responsibility of the Advertiser to ensure that any advertisement complies with applicable legislation, advertising regulations.

1.2 The Advertiser warrants and represents that the advertisement does not contravene any law, statute or regulations in the UK and is not in any way defamatory or illegal or an infringement of the rights of any third party. It is the responsibility of the Advertiser to ensure that publication of the advertisement does not breach any contract, copyright, trademark or any other right held by a third party.

1.3 The Advertiser will indemnify and keep the Publisher fully and effectively indemnified from and against any losses, costs and expenses howsoever incurred by the Publisher arising out of or in connection with the advertisement and/or any breach by the Advertiser of paragraph 1.2 of these terms and conditions. The Publisher will consult with the Advertiser as to the way in which any claim against the Publisher (in respect of which indemnity is sought by the Publisher from the Advertiser) is handled.

1.4 Advertisements will be published subject to approval by Publisher, which reserves the right not to publish if it believes a breach has been caused as set out previously or if it believes that any offence may be caused by publication of the advert.

1.5 Where an advert is designed by the Publisher, a proof will be emailed to the Advertiser for approval. The Publisher will not accept responsibility if the Advertiser does not advise the Publisher of any errors or omissions within the proof prior to the print deadline.

1.6 The copyright for any advert designed by the Publisher remains with the Publisher, and neither the advertisement nor the proof may be published in any other place or publication without the prior written permission of the Publisher.

1.7 Where copy is to be supplied by the Advertiser, it should be supplied without application or request from the Publisher.

1.8 Where an Advertiser books advertising space for multiple publications (magazines or editions), the client may supply different artwork each publication (magazine or edition) within the specified deadlines. Where no request is received by the Publisher to change artwork, the same advert as previously published will continue to be published.

1.9 Where an advertisement is placed by an advertising agency, that agency must have full authority from the Advertiser for all aspects relating to the booking of an advertisement.

1.10 The Publisher will accept advertisements on the condition that the Publisher retains the right to publish the advertisement online as well as within its  publications.

2.2 Where an Advertiser books an advertisement for multiple publications at a discounted price, the full cost of all appearances must be paid at the time of booking. If an Advertiser fails to pay the full amount, then the advertisement will be charged at the full rate and the multiple publications discount will not apply.

3. Cancellations

3.1 A notice of cancellation received 7-14 days after the invoice date will incur 50% of total booking fee due. A notice of cancellation later than that will incur 100% of total booking fee due.

The Publisher reserves the right to recover all additional costs incurred that arise as a result of the acts or defaults of the Advertiser or its Agent.

3.2 Should the applicable artwork, photos or copy not be received by the copy deadline, then the Publisher may publish design artwork from a previous Advertisement for the Advertiser or the booked space may be forfeited by the Advertiser for alternative use or sale by the Publisher without refund.

3.3 Where the Publisher has agreed to design artwork for the Advertiser, wording and digital photographs must be provided by in good time to enable the Publisher to provide final advertisement copy to the Advertiser in order to meet the copy deadline.

3.4 Should the applicable wording and digital photographs not be received in good time by the Publisher, then the booked space will be forfeited by the Advertiser for alternative use or sale by the Publisher without refund of costs paid.

3.5 If an Advertiser cancels a contract for a series of advertisements before the conclusion of that series, then the Publisher reserves the right to surcharge the advertisements that have been published in the series to the full single month cost of the advertisements, where the series of advertisements attracted a discount.


4. Errors

4.1 The Publisher will not be liable for any error, misprint or non-appearance of an advertisement, unless caused by the negligence of the Publisher. It is the responsibility of the Advertiser to check the accuracy of an advertisement. Where an error is caused by the Publisher, this will be remedied by a re-insertion of the advertisement in the following issue or a proportionate refund.


5. Liabilities

5.1 The Publisher makes every effort to ensure the accuracy of its content. However, the Publisher accepts no responsibility or liability for any errors, omissions, the accuracy of statements made within the publication or any loss arising from the publication or non-publication of an advertisement.

5.2 The Publisher does not endorse any product, service, business or event included in its publications.

6.6 The Publisher will hold Advertiser’s details as long as it is reasonably necessary to do so, and will not pass details onto a third party without the Advertiser’s consent, unless failure to do so would cause the Publisher to be unlawful.
