Contracts: Publisher is not bound by any conditions, printed or otherwise, on contract or copy instructions when such conditions conflict with this rate card or the publisher’s policies. Contracts must be completed within one year (6 issues).
In the case of a lawsuit by any party against or enjoining Legion Magazine and/or Canvet Publications Ltd., relating to a given advertisement (including, but not limited to, libel, copyright infringement, defamation of character or plagiarism), the given advertiser and/or its advertising agency shall fully indemnify and save harmless Canvet Publications Ltd. from all costs, damages and demands.
Advertisers and their agencies have dual liability to the publisher in the event of non-payment for advertising. That is, the agency is responsible for the client, and vice versa, notwithstanding any statements to the contrary on agency or advertiser insertion orders or contracts.
Rate Revisions: Publisher reserves the right to make revisions to these rates at any time. Existing contract rates are guaranteed only for next three issues from date of acceptance of contract.
Payment: Payment is due in Canadian funds at closing date unless credit has been granted.
Credit: Where credit has been granted, payment is due 30 days from date of invoice. The publisher reserves the right to decline or cancel further advertising from an advertiser or agency at a certain level of indebtedness to the publisher.

Positioning of all other advertising material shall be the sole and exclusive prerogative of the publisher, notwithstanding any preference requested by an advertiser, media buyer or sales representative.
Any position commitment made by the publisher for a particular issue shall not imply a similar commitment for future issues.
Volume or Frequency Discounts: Advertisers may claim either volume or frequency discounts. Where such discount is claimed on a schedule of mixed sizes, the discount earned on each insertion is that which applies to the smallest advertisement run.
Bonus Discount: A bonus discount of 10 per cent is available when an advertiser books additional ad(s) or insert(s), or combination, in one issue, provided the cost of each booking is at least equivalent to one page B&W. The discount will be based on the lowest unit cost booked, and will apply to the second and subsequent bookings. Where an agency commission applies, this will be based on the discounted gross cost of the booking(s).
