Publication Terms and Conditions

Punchline agrees to print copy submitted and approved by advertiser. Punchline reserves the right to reject any or all advertising copy for any reason whatsoever. Punchline accepts and publishes advertising materials with the understanding that the advertiser and/or advertising agency is properly authorized to publish the entire contents of the ad. By submitting an ad, the advertiser and/or advertising agency agrees to indemnify and hold Punchline harmless from and against any loss, expense or other liability resulting from any claims or suits that may arise out of the publication of such advertisement.

Advertiser assumes full responsibility concerning the right to use any name, address, trademark, service mark, trade name or other copy in any listing and/or display advertisement, and assumes full responsibility for determining that listing and/or display advertising will conform in all respects to all applicable laws and regulation including but not limited to, all licensing requirements of local, state or federal licensing authorities.

Punchline is not responsible for loss or damage to ad material.

If the advertiser fails to pay any amount due under the terms of this agreement within thirty (30) days of the billing date, the whole sum then unpaid shall become immediately due and payable at the option of the company without notice. Delinquency may result in cancellation of future advertising. In the event it becomes necessary to place this contract in the hands of attorney or collection agency, advertiser agrees to pay all collection costs and reasonable attorney fees. Advertiser agrees that any law suit initiated by and/or against it (he or she) shall be venued in Kent County, DE.

Punchline is not liable for failure to publish advertising provided by the advertiser. If an advertisement is not published, and the advertiser is current on its balance with Punchline, any monies received by Punchline for the unpublished ad shall be refunded to the advertiser or applied to publication of another advertisement, at the advertiser’s option.

If any paragraph, or portion of this contract is invalid under applicable law or rule of law, it is only to that extent to be omitted, without impairing the enforceability of the remainder of this agreement.

Punchline’s liability for any error shall not exceed the cost of the ad space occupied.

This agreement contains the entire agreement between the parties, and shall bind the original parties, their successors and assigns, thereto, neither party shall be bound by an agreement or understanding which is not set out in this agreement.
