  1. Paid Ads, Pricing and Availability

1.1          We may from time to time change Our pricing.  Changes in price will not affect any Paid Ad that you have already purchased but may apply to any subsequent renewal of a Paid Ad or a new Paid Ad.  We will inform you of any change in price before renewal.  If you do not agree to such a change, you may cancel the Contract as described in sub-Clause 12.1. 1.2          We make all reasonable efforts to ensure that all prices shown on Our Site are correct at the time of going online. Changes in price will not affect any order for a Paid Ad that you have already placed (please note sub-Clause 5.5 regarding VAT, however). 1.3          All prices are checked by Us before We accept your order for a Paid Ad.  In the unlikely event that We have shown incorrect pricing information, We will contact you in writing to inform you of the mistake.  If the correct price is lower than that shown when you made your order, We will simply charge you the lower amount and continue processing your order.  If the correct price is higher, We will give you the option to purchase the Paid Ad at the correct price or to cancel your order.  We will not proceed with processing your order in this case until you respond.  If We do not receive a response from you within 7 days, We will treat your order as cancelled and notify you of this in writing. 1.4          If We discover an error in the price of your Paid Ad after your order is processed, We will inform you immediately and make all reasonable efforts to correct the error.  You may, however, have the right to cancel the Contract if this happens.  If We inform you of such an error and you do wish to cancel the Contract, please refer to sub-Clause 12.4. 1.5          Prices on Our Site are shown are exclusive of VAT.  If the VAT rate changes between your order being placed and Us taking payment, the amount of VAT payable will be automatically adjusted when taking payment.

1.1          Payment for Paid Ads must always be made in advance by BACS, credit card or Paypal. 1.2          Payments due must be made in full, without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction, or withholding (except where any deduction or withholding of tax is required by law). 1.3          We accept the following methods of payment on Our Site: 3.a.1     BACS, credit card, Paypal. 1.4          If you do not make any payment due to Us on time, We will not make your Paid Ad available on Our Site or, in the case of a renewal, will suspend its availability on Our Site.  If you do not make payment within 7 days from our reminder, We may cancel the Contract, and will inform you of the cancellation in writing. 1.5          If you believe that We have charged you an incorrect amount, please contact us as soon as reasonably possible to let Us know.

  1. Paid Ads

1.1          You agree that you will be solely responsible for your Paid Ad and its content.  We accept no responsibility for the content of Paid Ads.  Specifically, you agree, represent, and warrant that you have the right to submit the Paid Ad, that all the information in the Paid Ad is accurate and truthful, that all such information will be kept accurate and up-to-date, that no personal data will be included that you do not have the right to include, and that the Paid Ad will comply with Our Acceptable Usage Policy, detailed below in Clause 9. 1.2          You agree that you will be liable to Us and will, to the fullest extent permissible by law, indemnify Us for any breach of the warranties given by you under sub-Clause 8.1.  You will be responsible for any loss or damage suffered by Us as a result of such a breach. 1.3          You (or your licensors, as appropriate) retain ownership of the content of your Paid Ad and all intellectual property rights subsisting therein.  By submitting a Paid Ad, you grant Us an unconditional, non-exclusive, fully transferrable, royalty-free, perpetual, worldwide licence to use, store, archive, syndicate, publish, transmit, adapt, edit, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works from, display, perform, and sub-licence that Paid Ad for the purposes of operating and promoting Our Site. 1.4          Your Paid Ad will be made available on Our Site immediately once paid in full by BACS and the draft Paid Ad is agreed by You. 1.5          In some limited circumstances, We may need to suspend the availability of Paid Ads for reasons including, but not limited to, fixing technical problems on Our Site.  If your Paid Ad is suspended for such reasons, We will inform you in advance of the suspension whenever possible, explaining why it is necessary. 1.6          If you wish to remove your Paid Ad from Our Site, you may do so by confirming in writing.  Removing a Paid Ad also revokes the licence granted to Us to use that Paid Ad under sub-Clause 8.3.  Please note, however, that caching or references to your Paid Ad may not be made immediately unavailable (or may not be made unavailable at all where they are outside of Our reasonable control).  Removing a Paid Ad before its expiry under this sub-Clause 8.6 will not entitle you to any refund, as per sub-Clause 11.1, and you will remain free to reactivate your Paid Ad up until the expiry date. For details of other cancellation rights, please refer to Clauses 11 and 12. 1.7          We are not responsible for the content or accuracy of, or for any opinions, views, or values expressed in Paid Ads.  Any such opinions, views, or values are those of the relevant Advertiser, and do not reflect Our opinions, views, or values in any way.  We have no control over, nor any involvement in, Paid Ads, and We accept no responsibility for any actions taken, or for any products or services provided by, any Advertiser.
