Publisher looks to the advertising agency placing the insertion order for payment; however, Publisher retains the right to hold advertising agency and the advertiser jointly and severally liable for the monies due and payable to Publisher, and the agency warrants by submitting the insertion order that it and the advertiser have accepted this responsibility. Publisher will not be bound by conditions printed or otherwise, on contracts, order blanks or instructions when such conditions conflict with its policies.

Publisher reserves the right to change the rates and terms herein at any time without notice, provided that for any contract advertiser the rates herein shall continue to apply for issues published within 90 days of the effective date of such change.

When proof must be submitted for approval, copy or artwork must be received by Publisher two weeks preceding ad closing date.
