Advertiser Agreement

It is understood and agreed that the following terms and conditions are accepted as a contract (“Agreement”) between Zero To Three (“ZTT”) and the advertising company (“Advertiser”). Advertiser agrees as follows:

PAYMENT. Full payment for the advertisement (“Advertisement”) shall be as set forth in the Advertising Rate Card, and must be received within 30 days of submission of the Advertisement or 60 days prior to the first day of the publication month, whichever is sooner. All purchases are nonrefundable except as provided in this Agreement. ZTT reserves the right to refuse the Advertisement if payment is not received by the deadline. If Advertiser cancels this Agreement prior to its conclusion, Advertiser shall remain liable to pay ZTT the full amount due.

ADVERTISEMENT SUBMISSION. Advertiser will submit the Advertisement, including all necessary artwork, to ZTT at least 60 days prior to the first day of the publication month. In the event that all necessary artwork is not received by the due date, ZTT may at its sole option elect to use artwork from previous Advertisements placed by Advertiser, if any. Advertiser agrees that the positioning, placement, frequency, and other editorial decisions related to the Advertisement shall be made by ZTT in its sole discretion.

LICENSE. Advertiser hereby grants to ZTT a limited, non-exclusive license to copy, use, display, and publish Advertiser’s Advertisement (including Advertiser’s name, marks, and logos shown) solely in connection with this Agreement. Advertiser retains all right, title, and interest, including copyright and other proprietary or intellectual property rights in the content of the Advertisement and Advertiser’s name, marks, and logos.

WARRANTIES. Advertiser represents and warrants that (a) the Advertisement is Advertiser’s own original work; (b) that Advertiser is the sole owner of the work and all of the rights granted to ZTT under these terms and conditions; © that the content of the Advertisement does not violate any copyright, trademark, proprietary, or personal rights of others, as well as any applicable advertising laws or regulations; and (d) the Advertisement is factually accurate and does not contain any content which is unlawful, harmful, abusive, hateful, lewd, obscene, threatening, defamatory, or libelous, or constitute unfair competition or unfair trade practice.

INDEMNIFICATION. Advertiser agrees to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless ZTT, its officers, directors, sublicensees, employees, and agents, from and against any claims, actions, liabilities, costs, or demands, including without limitation reasonable legal and accounting fees, for any loss or damage or claims resulting or arising from the use or publication of the Advertisement, including but not limited to claims for copyright or trademark infringement, unfair competition, defamation, breach of contract, or breach of the warranties provided in this Agreement. ZTT shall provide notice to Advertiser promptly of any such claim, suit, or proceeding and shall assist Advertiser, at Advertiser’s sole expense, in defending any such claim, suit, or proceeding.

CANCELLATION. ZTT reserves the right to cancel or refuse the display of an Advertisement at any time and for any reason, including but not limited to failure to conform to applicable laws and regulations, ZTT’s policies, ZTT’s mission, or the public interest, regardless of whether such advertisement previously was accepted by ZTT. If ZTT cancels or refuses to place the Advertisement then this Agreement shall be deemed terminated and ZTT will refund to Advertiser any advertising fees paid. The refund of fees shall be Advertiser’s sole remedy for ZTT’s termination of this Agreement.

CORRECTIONS. Advertiser is responsible for checking advertising copy for corrections and providing ZTT with prompt written notice of errors or changes. Advertiser acknowledges and agrees that submitting a correction may result in the delay of placement of the Advertisement.

NO ENDORSEMENT. Advertising with ZTT does not in any way mean that ZTT approves or endorses Advertiser or Advertiser’s products or services. Advertisements shall not imply or convey ZTT’s approval, endorsement, certification, acceptance, or referral of Advertiser or Advertiser’s products or services.

PARTICIPATION. Participation as an advertiser does not entitle Advertiser to influence the content planning of any ZERO TO THREE publication or event.
