    All radio and/or website advertising orders are subject to these terms and conditions (‘these Conditions’) which shall apply to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions and no variation or addition thereto shall be effective unless specifically agreed to in writing by Radio Ninesprings. Any other terms or conditions sought to be imposed by the Advertiser are expressly excluded. 

    1. In these Conditions attaching to radio and/or website Advertising Contracts: RNS means Radio Ninesprings Limited and ‘Advertiser’ means the person booking the advertising space including Advertising Agents and Independent Media Buyers. Advertising Agents and Independent Media Buyers shall for the purpose of these Conditions act as principals on their own behalf for all purposes connected herewith. ‘Rate Card’ means RNS current scale of charges for advertisements, a current copy of which may be obtained from RNS. ‘Contract’ means a legally binding booking accepted by RNS in accordance with Condition 2 for airplay or publication of an Advertisement. ‘Copy’ means all material provided by an Advertiser with the intention that such material should form part of the completed Advertisement. ‘Advertisement’ means advertising messages to be played on the radio station or displayed on the radio station website. ‘Period’ means the contracted period over which the Advertisement will be played and/or displayed. ‘Cancellation’ of a Contract means cancellation of either all or part of the remaining unperformed part of the Contract. 

    2. The issue of a Rate Card does not constitute an offer by RNS to contract. A Contract is made only by RNS’s acceptance of the Advertiser’s order as effected by RNS issuing and receiving an Acknowledgement of an Order Form. 
    3. Advertisement rates are subject to revision at any time and the price prevailing at the time the Contract is made binds RNS only in respect of the agreed booking as confirmed by RNS’s Acknowledgement of Order Form. 
    4. All orders are accepted subject to acceptance of Copy by RNS, as indicated in Conditions 7 & 17, and if it is intended to include in an Advertisement a competition or a special offer of merchandise, full details of such competitions or special offers must be submitted by the Advertiser in writing at the time the order is negotiated. 5.

Should cancellation, omission or suspension be due to the act or default of the Advertiser or its servants or agents including the unsuitability of the Advertisement as indicated above, then the Advertiser shall pay for the Advertisement in full notwithstanding that the Advertisement has not been played or displayed for the full contracted period. Such cancellation, omission or suspension shall be notified to the Advertiser as soon as reasonably possible.
