Commission not allowed on any other special charges, Marketplace advertising and Directory Listings. If charges due the publisher from agency for advertisements placed in conformance with this rate card are not paid properly, the publisher may, at its option, collect said charges from the advertiser, and the agency shall execute all necessary assignments. In addition, publisher may hold advertiser and its agency jointly and severally liable for all sums due and payable to publisher, even if the advertiser has previously paid the agency.

Advertising contracts will be set up on a calendar year basis, unless notified by advertiser or advertising agency that a different contract period is requested. In no instance will a contract period be longer than 12 months. Advertisers will be short-rated if, within a calendar year and/or a 12-month period from date of first insertion, they do not use the amount of space upon which their billings have been based. Schedules composed of mixed space units of at least one-sixth standard page are entitled to frequency rates at all size levels. Marketplace advertisements do not count toward frequency of display space; nor does display space count toward the Marketplace advertising and Directory listings frequency. Insertion orders may not be cancelled after closing date.
Oral agreements will not be binding on the publisher. Orders containing incorrect rates or conditions will be inserted and charged in compliance with rates and conditions shown in this rate card. Rate stated on insertion order creates the assumption of frequency intended, and billing is done accordingly. Short rates will apply if this assumed frequency is not met. Such errors will be considered clerical only.
