All advertisements and any other contributed work/material is submitted and published by Alpha Publishing Ltd (the Publisher) strictly on the basis that the Advertiser/contributor accepts the following terms and conditions:

  1. This agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the Advertiser/contributor and the Publisher and supercedes all prior representations, agreements, statements and understandings, whether verbal or in writing.
  2. The Publisher reserves the right to restrict the size of the magazine and the amount of advertising contained therein.
  3. The Publisher reserves the right to refuse or omit publication of any advertisement or material deemed unsuitable for publication.

  1. The Advertiser/contributor warrants that the publication of any and all material (editorial and advertising) it submits to the Publisher will not infringe any right of any third party, that the material is true and correct and its use will not be misleading or deceptive, or likely to mislead or deceive.
  2. The Advertiser/contributor indemnifies the Publisher for any costs (including legal costs), loss or damage to the Publisher which may result from the publication of material at the request of the advertiser/contributor.

  1. Any advertising booked may be cancelled unless specifically stated otherwise in the agreement.
  2. Cancellations for any one issue will not be accepted after 5pm on the Booking Deadline for that issue and must be in writing.
