Terms & Conditions

IMPORTANT: Please read below and agree to the Terms and Conditions for advertising with The Local Answer

  1. No alteration or variation in these terms and conditions shall be valid unless the same have been confirmed in writing by The Local Answer Limited (the Publisher).
  2. Full payment for each advertisement insertion will be required prior to printing each month. Sums owed for advertisements not received prior to printing will incur interest from the first day of the publication month. The rate of interest will be the official dealing rate of the Bank of England (the base rate) + 8%, using the base rate at the end of the day on which the payment is to be made.
  3. The Advertiser does not have sole or monopoly rights in respect of items being advertised in the publication(s) and accepts that the advertisements of competitors providing similar services or items may be included in the publication(s).
  4. The Advertisement Contract incorporating these Terms and Conditions represents the entire agreement between the Advertiser and the Publisher and the Advertiser acknowledges that it is not entering into this agreement in reliance upon any representation or warranty not contained in these terms and conditions.
  5. No warranty – other than any volume of copies/edition stated – is given to the Advertiser as to the extent of the distribution of the publications by the Publisher.
  6. If required by the Advertiser, the design of an advertisement will be undertaken by the Publisher and a proof will be produced for the Advertiser’s approval in prior to printing. The Advertiser is responsible for providing the Publisher with the necessary text, images and instructions for the production of their advertisement within one week of the Advertisement Booking Deadline for each relevant issue. The copyright on any advertisement produced by the Publisher remains with the Publisher unless an agreement is sought with the Publisher.
  7. The Publisher has the right to decline or omit any advertisement and all copy is subject to approval by the Publisher.
  8. The Advertiser hereby grants to the Publisher a royalty free licence of its intellectual proprietary rights, as supplied by the Advertiser for the purpose of inclusion of such material into the publication, during the term of this arrangement.
  9. The Advertiser will indemnify the publisher in respect of all costs, claims, damages, expenses or demands falling upon the Publisher as a result of legal action or threatened legal action, brought against the Publisher arising from the publication of any advertisement prepared for the Advertiser including but not limited to breach of copyright, trade mark or registered design, passing off defamation or breach of statutory provisions (including the Trade Descriptions Act 1968 and the British Code of Advertising Practice).
  10. If any instalment of the agreed rate is not paid on the due date the entire outstanding balance shall become due. The Publisher will exercise his/her statutory right to interest under the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 if payment is not made according to the agreed credit terms. The rate of interest will be the official dealing rate of the Bank of England (the base rate) + 8%, using the base rate at the end of the day on which the payment is to be made.
  11. The Advertiser shall remain liable for all payments due under this agreement notwithstanding the cessation or transfer or fundamental change in the nature of the business carried on by the Advertiser.
  12. The Publisher reserves the right to terminate this agreement prior to the publication being delivered to the Advertiser by giving seven days notice in writing to the Advertiser, and on the expiration of such notice any payments made by the Advertiser to the Publisher shall be refunded. Every care is taken to ensure accuracy. The advertisements are accepted on the understanding that descriptions are fair and accurate. All artwork is accepted on strict condition that permission for use has been granted.
  13. Where all care is taken to ensure that advertisers adhere to advertising codes of practice and are of good standing, the publisher accepts no responsibility for any statement, error or omission in any advertisement or editorial matter. Advertisements have been accepted in good faith but this does not imply that the advertisers have The Local Answer’s endorsement and no guarantee can be given by The Local Answer. Whilst we make every effort to identify the copyright of photographs, the lapse of time invariably makes it impossible to credit individual pictures. No part of this publication may be reproduced without the prior written permission of the publisher, The Local Answer. The content, accuracy and opinions expressed in articles published in The Local Answer are those of the contributors and are not necessarily the view of the publisher.
