Terms and Conditions

Booking Terms and Conditions (Advertising)

All material deadlines must be adhered to. Failure to deliver materials on time can incur a full fee as per advertisement booking. Any negotiated rates, added value and positioning is valid for the confirmed booking only. All prices quoted and agreed upon are net of tax.

Cancellation Policy – All cancellations requested more than 24 hours, but less than 72 hours after booking, will be charged at 50% of the agreed rate. Cancellations requested after 72 hours of the booking date and time will be charged at 100% of the agreed ad rate. Any cancellations of an ad within a schedule will be charged at the full media kit rate. All cancellations must be provided in writing. Our cancellation policy reflects the production costs of layouts being changed after completion.

Disclaimer – While internal production processes may verify that material is within specifications, the onus is firmly on the client/agency to supply material within specification. It is also a requirement that advertising materials be delivered on time so quality checking procedures can take place. FMG Publishing reserves the right to select the orientation of the quarter and half page ad to best suit the article layout. FMG Publishing reserves the right to refuse any advertising material that does not meet our specifications.

Editorial Terms and Conditions

FMG Publishing Inc. retains reproduction and alteration rights for all editorial and releases reproduction rights to all clients involved in advertising and editorial content.

While we guarantee publication if all requested materials are provided and prerequisites are met, space in the print version of our magazines is strictly limited and while we will make every effort to include all articles, ultimately this is at the Editor’s discretion. On some occasions certain articles may be omitted from the print edition.

Upon receipt of the materials requested, FMG Publishing Inc. is committed to the editorial project and, under circumstances where an interview is not made available prior to editorial deadlines, the editor reserves the right to publish an article based on public domain information.
