Advertising Agreement Terms

Submission of Materials 
Advertiser agrees to supply to publisher all elements of the advertising to be published, including properly formatted files, by the “Copy” deadline indicated on the Bowdoin magazine advertisement specifications card, incorporated herein by reference. 

No cancellations are allowed after the “Space Reservation” deadline indicated on the Bowdoin magazine deadline and copy regulations card. Publisher’s DiscretionAdvertisers are permitted to advertise in the magazine at the publisher’s discretion. 

Advertisements appear within the Marketplace section of Bowdoin magazine, and placement within that section is at the publisher’s discretion. Ad space is limited, fixed, and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Ads will not be accepted without a signed insertion order and full payment. 

Publisher accepts no responsibility for any errors in advertisements prepared or approved by the advertiser. Any substantial errors that are the fault of the publisher will be subject to a reduction or reimbursement of the amounts paid by the advertiser, but in no case will any claim arising from any error exceed the amount paid for the advertisement by the advertiser. Publisher shall not be liable for any consequential damages of any kind if for some reason the magazine does not publish an advertisement or the advertisement is published incorrectly. 

Advertiser’s materials are accepted and published upon the representation that the advertiser has the right to authorize publication of all contents of the advertisement and the representations made therein do not infringe or damage any third party. Advertiser agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the publisher from any and all claims and resulting damages, loss, and expense (including attorney fees) arising out of the publication of the advertiser’s material. These claims include, but are not limited to, claims or suits for libel, violation of right of privacy, plagiarism, and copyright infringement. 

Frequency Discounts
Frequency discounts are based on the number
of advertisements placed in the magazine within a publication year. Advertiser agrees that if the number of advertisements drops below the number required for the frequency discount, the publisher will adjust the rate of any remaining advertisements to reflect the higher advertising rate (as specified on the Bowdoin magazine rate card) and will bill the advertiser for the difference between the amount paid and the full rate for the number of advertisements previously run. 

Payment Terms
Advertiser must pay in advance. Payment must be received by the “Ad Material and Payment” deadline. Checks should be made out to Bowdoin College and mailed to 4104 College Station, Brunswick, ME 04011, ATT: Leanne Dech. 

Scope of Agreement
These terms and conditions are the complete understanding between the parties concerning all matters contained herein, and any prior statements or representations are superseded by this agreement.
