All adverts are accepted by Roundabout Publications on the understanding that they are copyright free. This includes any images, logos, photos, trade logos, clip art, or any other content that is used in the advert. It is the advertiser’s responsibility to acquire any necessary permission for the use of any images, logos, photos, trade logos, clip art, or any other content that is used in their advert/editorial/article/any other content.
It is the advertiser’s responsibility to check the advert and ensure that it is correct at copy approval stage. No responsibility will be taken by Roundabout Publications for any errors subsequently identified (i.e. after copy approval).
Any logos/images/photos supplied should be a minimum of 300dpi. No responsibility can be taken for the print quality of any image/logo/photo supplied at a lower resolution.
Any adverts supplied in JPEG, PDF or any other pre-prepared format will be inserted into Roundabout Publications as supplied and will be assumed not to require copy approval. These files should be supplied at a minimum of 300dpi. No responsibility can be taken for the print quality of any advert supplied at a lower resolution. These files may be re-sized to fit the appropriate space.
Any advert/editorial/article/design which Roundabout Publications has created (or edited at the instruction of the advertiser) cannot be used in another publication or advertising medium (e.g. website) without the written approval of Roundabout Publications. A fee will be payable to Roundabout Publications if an advertiser wishes to re-use an advert/editorial/article/design in this way.
Roundabout Publications reserve the right to refuse/edit advertisements at our discretion.
Full payment is required by the copy deadline date to ensure publication of the advert. Any adverts for which payment has not been received will not be published.
Once an advertising package has been confirmed, either by an advertiser signing and returning the order confirmation form or by confirmation telephone call, e-mail or letter no refunds can be given if the advertiser subsequently decides that they wish to cancel the advertising package.
Advertisers who pay for their advert by standing order are advised that their advert will be printed in the magazine until such time as they notify Roundabout Publications that they wish to cancel. Standing orders must be set up so that payment is received by Roundabout Publications by the copy deadline date i.e. prior to printing. It is the advertiser’s responsibility to inform Roundabout Publications if they wish to stop running their advert. Notification of cancellation must be received by the copy deadline date. If the advertiser cancels their standing order without telling Roundabout Publications and the advert is published, the advertiser will be invoiced separately for the advertising cost.
Advertisers who pay by a cheque which is subsequently returned unpaid will be additionally invoiced for any banking fee charged as a result to Roundabout Publications, as well as an administration fee of £10.
Roundabout Publications give no guarantee of the level of response to adverts/editorial/articles etc. Roundabout Publications are unable to offer refunds if no responses are received.

All invoices are payable within 7 days of the date stated on the invoice or by the copy deadline date, whichever is sooner and in no circumstances shall the advertiser be entitled to make any deduction or withhold payment for any reason at all.
Without prejudice to any other rights of Roundabout Publications if the advertiser fails to pay the invoice price by the due date the advertiser shall not be allowed any discount given in that invoice or in any other way agreed and shall pay interest on any overdue amount from the date of which payment was due to the date of actual payment (whether before or after judgment) on a daily basis at a rate of 4% p.a. over the base rate from time to time quoted by National Westminster Bank plc and shall reimburse to Roundabout Publications all costs and expenses (including legal costs) incurred in the collection of any overdue amount.
Roundabout Publications shall not be liable or deemed to be in breach of contract by reason of any delay in performing, or any failure to perform, any of Roundabout Publications’ obligations in relation to their services or publication and distribution of the publications, if the delay or failure was due to any cause beyond Roundabout Publications’ reasonable control.
