9. Any size, agency or series discounts is given in consideration of settlement being made within the Publisher’s terms set out in clause 8. Failure to pay within these terms will result in full Rate Card being charged. If the Advertiser cancels the balance of a contract he relinquishes any right to a previously negotiated series discount and advertisements will be paid for at the full rate unless the contract has been suspended by decision of the Publisher — see clauses 2, 3 and 8.
10. Charges will be made to the Advertiser or his agent where the printers are involved in extra production work owing to acts or defaults of the Advertiser or his servants or agents. Additional cost incurred if materials are found to be unsuitable during production will be charged except if the whole or any part of such additional cost could have been avoided but for additional delay by the Publisher or his servants in ascertaining the unsuitability of materials so supplied.
11. All property supplied to the Publisher by or on behalf of the Advertiser shall, while it is in the possession of the Publisher or agents of the Publisher, or in transit to or from the Advertiser, be deemed at the Advertiser’s risk unless otherwise agreed and the Advertiser should insure accordingly.

The Publisher reserves the right to destroy all artwork and associated materials that have been in its custody for 12 months from the date of its last appearance.
12. At least four weeks notice in writing prior to copy date is required to stop or suspend an insertion. For advertisements withdrawn within 5 working days of the stated deadline, a charge will be levied equal to 10 per cent of the value of the advertisement as the time available for MCL to sell the allotted space will be too compressed.

Complaints regarding reproduction or placement of advertisements must be made in writing and must be received within four weeks of the publication date of the issue in question, otherwise administration charges may apply. For advertisers wirthdrawing copy within five working days of the stated publication date, then a charge will be applied related to 10% of the value of the advertisment given the space will be difficult to resell under the time constranits imposed by the decision to withdraw.
