It is the Advertiser’s responsibility to check the accuracy of the Advertisement. The Advertiser warrants that any Advertisement submitted by it for publication shall comply with all applicable laws, legislation, regulations, codes of practice and is not an infringement of any other party’s rights. Failure to do so, the Advertiser will indemnify the Publisher fully for all costs, expenses, damages or liability whatsoever (including legal costs and awards ordered against the Publisher) in respect of any claim made against the Publisher arising from the Advertisement or its publication or as a result of any breach or non-performance of any of the representations, warranties or other terms contained herein or implied by law.

The Advertiser warrants that all copy submitted to the Publisher (including any linked website) is legal, truthful, honest and decent and otherwise complies with the British Code of Advertising, Sales Promotion and Direct Marketing and all other relevant and applicable codes, guidance or regulations under the remit of the Advertising Standards Authority.

All contents of Advertisements are subject to the Publisher’s approval.

The Publisher does not undertake to review the contents of any Advertisement and any such review of and/or approval by the Publisher will not be deemed to constitute an acceptance by the Publisher that such Advertisement is provided in accordance with these Conditions nor will it constitute a waiver of the Publisher’s rights hereunder. If the Publisher considers it necessary to modify space or alter the date or position of insertion or make any other alteration it shall notify the Advertiser of this as soon as it reasonably can.

Any complaints concerning the Advertisement from the Advertiser must be received in writing by the Publisher not more than 14 days after the publication date of the Advertisement. Complaints received after such time will not be entertained by the Publisher who shall have no liability in respect thereof.

All copy supplied by the Advertiser must be accurate. Once copy is submitted there is no room for changes to be made, therefore the Advertiser must be aware that the copy submitted is the final copy they will see in the print and online magazine, Made In The Shire.

In circumstances where, at the Publisher’s discretion, the Publisher arranges to supply proofs of Advertisement copy to the Advertiser, all copy must be supplied by the Advertiser to the Publisher by the deadline (as stated by the Publisher). Failing this the Publisher cannot guarantee that proofs will be supplied or corrections made. If copy instructions are not received by the last day for receiving copy the Publisher reserves the right in its absolute discretion to print the Advertiser’s existing copy in its possession where appropriate or where the Publisher does not hold any copy to omit the Advertisement and to charge for the space reserved in accordance with Terms and Conditions.

For copy supplied, the Advertiser must adhere to the Technical Specifications issued by the Publisher. In the event that the Advertiser does not comply with the Technical Specifications, the Publisher reserves the right in its absolute discretion to reject the copy and the Advertiser will be asked to re-supply. If, due to technical, time or other reasonable constraints, the Publisher has to repair or rectify the file, the Publisher may (at its discretion) notify the Advertiser and shall not be liable for any inaccurate reproduction of the Advertisement or any resulting costs whether direct or indirect.

Advertiser’s property, originals, artwork, type, mechanicals, digital files and proofs, positives etc. are held by the Publisher at the owner’s risk and should be insured by the Advertiser against loss or damage from whatever cause. After performance of the Contract relating to such materials, the Advertiser shall be responsible for collecting all such materials which it requires from the Publisher’s premises, failing which, the Publisher reserves the right to destroy all artwork, film, copy or other materials which has been in its possession for more than three months and no liability shall be attached to the Publisher in respect of such destruction.

Advertisers are required to pay the Publisher immediately for their space. Payments are taken via online payment (relevant payment links will be sent to the Advertiser).

If payment from the Advertiser is rejected, the Publisher will release the space to another party (unless the Advertiser can rectify the payment issue within 24 hours).

Advertisement rates are subject to revision at any time and the price prevailing at the time the Contract is made binds the Publisher and the Advertiser in a Contract.


Once payment by the Advertiser has been made, there is not an opportunity to cancel the Contract. Due to the nature of the product i.e. a magazine that is created and published in a short-frame time, refund policies are not possible.


The Advertiser expressly acknowledges that it has not relied on any representation made by or on behalf of the Publisher, other than as set out in these Conditions, in entering into the Contract.

The Advertiser may not assign or transfer any of its rights under these Conditions to any third party.

No person who is not a party to this Contract has any right under the Contracts (Right of Third Parties) Act 1999 to enforce any part of this Contract.

The Publisher and the Advertiser warrant that they will duly observe all their obligations under the Data Protection Act 2018 (as applicable) which may arise in connection with this agreement.

The Publisher and Advertiser warrant that any information given to the other party which ought reasonably be treated as confidential shall be treated as such and such information shall not be disclosed by either party without the prior written consent of the other.

These Conditions shall constitute the entire agreement between the parties with regard to its subject matter and shall supersede all prior understandings, commitments and undertakings that either party may have given.

These Conditions and all other terms of the Contract shall be construed in accordance with the Laws of England and the parties submit to the jurisdiction of the English courts.

All Contracts are subject to the Terms and Conditions and no variation or addition thereto shall be effective unless specifically agreed to in writing by the Publisher. Any other terms or conditions sought to be imposed by the Advertiser are expressly excluded.
