general terms and conditions (gtc)

(1) “Advertising order” within the meaning of the following General Terms and conditions is the contract for the publication of one or more advertisements of an advertiser or other advertiser in a printed publication or digitally (e.g. as PDF and/or Flipbook) for the purpose of distribution. Such an order shall only become legally binding for the publisher upon written confirmation to the client. The publisher reserves the right to reject advertising orders – including individual orders – on the basis of content, origin or technical form in accordance with the publisher’s uniform principles. Advertisements which, due to their format and presentation, give the reader the impression that they are part of the magazine or which contain third-party advertisements will not be accepted. The client shall be notified immediately of the rejection of an order.

(2) In case of doubt, advertisements must be called off for publication within one year of conclusion of the contract.

(3) No guarantee is given for the inclusion of advertisements in specific issues or in specific places in the print or digital edition, unless the client has expressly made the validity of the order dependent on this. Space agreements shall only be binding if the price stated in the advertising rate and expressly stated in the confirmation is accepted for this purpose. If the stated closing dates for advertisements are exceeded, special space agreements shall no longer be binding.

(4) Exclusion of competitors can only be agreed for two opposite pages. Exclusion of competitors cannot be guaranteed if a specific space has been promised and confirmed as binding for an advertisement.

(5) Advertisements which are not identifiable as advertisements due to their editorial design shall be clearly identified as such by the publisher with the word “Advertisement”.

(6) The customer shall be responsible for the timely delivery of the advertisement text and faultless print data.

Print data will be deleted at the request of the client.

The publisher accepts no liability for errors of any kind arising from telephone transmissions.

In the event of late payment, the publisher may postpone further execution of the current order until payment has been made and demand advance payment for the remaining advertisements. In the event of reasonable doubt as to the solvency of the customer, the publisher shall be entitled, even during the term of an advertising contract, to make the publication of further advertisements conditional upon the advance payment of the amount and the payment of outstanding invoice amounts, irrespective of any originally agreed payment period.
