New advertisers may be required to submit bank references and financial statements before being permitted to advertise. The Publisher reserves the right to decline or reject any advertisement for any person, at any time, without liability, even though previously acknowledged or accepted. Only actual publication of an advertisement constitutes its acceptance; but does not constitute any agreement for continued publication in any form, regardless of prior agreements.
Advertising Responsibilities The Publisher cannot be held responsible for the quality of reproduction when specifications are not adhered to or when material is not received by deadline. If materials require alterations to meet advertising specifications, the publisher reserves the right to charge for alteration costs.
