The right is also reserved to reject any advertisement due to appear in the Publication which is considered to seek to gain unfair advantage from copying editorial style or layout.

12 Cancellations of orders by the Advertiser shall be no later than 8 (eight) weeks before the applicable on-sale date.

18 All material, including artwork, transparencies, bromides or other materials supplied for the purpose of an advertisement or advertisement feature and submitted by the Advertiser is submitted at the Advertiser's own risk and should be insured by him against loss or damage from whatever cause. The Publisher does not accept liability for loss or damage to the material caused by third parties any other supervening events. The Publisher reserves the right to destroy without notice all artwork, film and other property which has been in his custody for six months from the date of its last appearance in an advertisement unless the Advertiser has given written instruction to the contrary.

19 In the absence of any specific arrangement between the Publisher and the Advertiser, payment in respect of the advertisement shall be made prior to the copy deadline of the magazine in which the advertisement is to appear.
