1 Subject to cl. 2, any Booking made by Advertiser will be on the Terms set out in this document. By making a Booking Advertiser accepts in full these Terms in respect of the Booking and in respect of any further Booking made by the Client and/or Agency. These Terms shall apply to all Booking made by telephone, letter, facsimile, e-mail or any other means.


2 These Terms are an invitation to treat and as such do not constitute a binding offer to enter into a contract. Any Booking made by Advertiser will upon receipt by Advertiser of Sussex Living Ltd’s Order Acceptance document create a binding contract between Sussex Living Ltd and Advertiser.


3 Advertiser shall deliver the Copy to arrive at Sussex Living Ltd by the Copy Deadline, such copies to be produced in any format that conforms to Sussex Living Ltd’s requirements as notified by Sussex Living Ltd to Advertiser. Sussex Living Ltd reserves the right to charge for production work and any other additional work that Sussex Living Ltd may be required to undertake.


4 Sussex Living Ltd may in exceptional cases and at its own discretion accept Bookings and Copy after the Copy Deadline. Such acceptance shall not impose any obligation whatsoever on Sussex Living Ltd to accept any other Booking or Copy after the Copy Date.


5 At Sussex Living Ltd’s discretion payments may be subject to a deduction for advertising agency commission at the rate agreed between the Client and the Agency up to 10% of the relevant invoice. Save for such commission there shall be no deductions or withholdings whatsoever. All sums shall be paid together with any VAT or other sales tax applicable.


6 Advertiser shall pay all invoices within the terms agreed. All sums shall be paid together with any VAT or other sales tax applicable.

8 In the event of late payment, Sussex Living Ltd reserves the right to waive any agreed discounts and other services such as online support.


9 Sussex Living Ltd shall be entitled to cancel any Booking without incurring any liability to Advertiser.

In such event, Advertiser shall pay to Sussex Living Ltd a sum in respect of each of the advertisements placed, such sum representing the difference between the rate agreed under the said contract and the rate that is applicable for the number of advertisements actually placed, such rate to be notified by Sussex Living Ltd to Advertiser.


14 Sussex Living Ltd reserves the right to increase the advertisement rates as notified by Sussex Living Ltd to Advertiser or to amend any terms agreed between the parties as to space for the advertisement.
