Advertising Rate Card and Terms

The placement of advertising on any Service constitutes Advertiser’s (and, if applicable, Agency’s) agreement to these terms and conditions. These terms and conditions may be modified from time to time by NeighborApps; additional placement of advertising will constitute Advertiser’s (and, if applicable, Agency’s) agreement to any such modifications.
A. NeighborApps’s Right To Reject, Cancel or Terminate Orders
NeighborApps reserves the right at its absolute discretion, and at any time, to cancel any advertising order or reject any advertising copy in connection with any Service, whether or not the same has already been acknowledged and/or previously published, displayed, performed or transmitted (collectively referred to herein as “Published” or “Publish”), including, but not limited to, for reasons relating to the content of the advertisement or any technology associated with the advertisement. In the event of such cancellation or rejection by NeighborApps, advertising already run and to be run shall be paid for at the rate that would apply if the entire order were Published and no Short Rate (as defined below) will apply.
In addition, NeighborApps reserves the right to (i) remove from selected copies, editions, versions, or sections of a Service advertisements containing matter that readers have deemed objectionable (ii) implement blocking technology (including, but not limited to, geo-blocking technology) in connection with a Service; and (iii) enhance, upgrade and/or otherwise modify or discontinue any Service at any time.
NeighborApps, at its absolute discretion, may terminate its relationship with Advertiser and/or Agency for the breach of any of the terms hereof, including without limitation a breach based on the failure on the part of either Advertiser or Agency to pay each bill by its due date. Should NeighborApps terminate its relationship with Advertiser and/or Agency, a short-rate (which is the difference between the rate charged on the contracted frequency and the higher rate based on the reduced frequency of advertisements actually Published and paid for, herein a “Short-Rate”) may apply and all charges incurred together with short-rate charges shall be immediately due and payable. Furthermore, in the event Advertiser or Agency breaches, NeighborApps may, in addition to its other remedies, (a) cancel its recognition of Agency, thereby causing Agency to lose claim to any commission for any further advertising placed with NeighborApps on behalf of Advertiser or any other client of Agency, and/or (b) refuse to Publish any or all of Advertiser’s advertising.
B. Advertiser’s Failure to Run Advertising/Short-Rate/Merchandising Programs
All agreements for advertising frequency discounts in connection with any Service require that the specified number of advertisements be Published within a specified period and be promptly paid for. In the event of Advertiser’s or its Agency’s cancellation of any portion of any advertising order/contract or failure to have Published and paid for the specified number of advertisements, or if at any time NeighborApps in its reasonable judgment determines that Advertiser is not likely to Publish and pay for the total amount of advertising specified during the term of the agreement, any rate discount will be retroactively nullified, including for previously Published advertisements, and may result in a Short-Rate. In such event, Advertiser and/or Agency must reimburse NeighborApps for the Short-Rate within 30 days of invoice therefor and Advertiser will thereafter pay for advertising at the open rate or at the earned rate(s) as applicable. Any merchandising program executed by NeighborApps in reliance on advertising that is cancelled will be paid for by Advertiser at the fair market rate for such program. Advertising credits (for any earned advertising frequency discount adjustments for advertising run in excess of specified schedule) will only be earned if all advertising is paid for by the due date. Advertising credits must be used by the Advertiser within six months after the end of the period in which they were earned. If any portion of such advertising credits remain unused at the expiration of the foregoing six month period, such unused advertising credits shall be expired and NeighborApps shall not have any further obligation to Advertiser and/or Agency with respect thereto.
C. Restrictions on Advertiser’s Ability to Cancel Advertising Orders for Magazines and Digital Editions
Orders for inside or outside cover pages for Magazines and Digital Editions are non-cancelable. Options on cover positions for Magazines must be exercised at least 30 days prior to four-color closing date. If an order is not received by such date, the cover option automatically lapses. Orders for all inside advertising units for Magazines and Digital Editions are non-cancelable less than 15 days prior to closing date. Orders for furnished inserts for Magazines are non-cancelable the first day of the fourth calendar month preceding the month imprinted on the cover of the issue. Orders for all NeighborApps-produced inserts for Magazines are non-cancelable. In any event, Advertiser will be responsible for the cost of any work performed or materials purchased on behalf of Advertiser, including the cost of services, paper and/or printing.
D. Advertising Positioning at NeighborApps Discretion
Orders for advertising containing restrictions or specifying positions, facings, editorial adjacencies or other requirements may be accepted and Published but such restrictions or specifications are at NeighborApps sole discretion, and in no event shall such approved restrictions or specifications relate to any user generated content on NeighborApps Websites, Apps and/or Emails.
E. Labeling of Advertisements
Advertisements that simulate or resemble editorial content must be clearly identified and labeled “ADVERTISEMENT” or “PROMOTION” or “SPECIAL ADVERTISING SECTION” at the top of the advertisement, and NeighborApps may, in its discretion, so label such copy.
An accurate copy of any furnished insert must be submitted to NeighborApps for review prior to the printing of the insert. NeighborApps review and/or approval of such copy does not release or relinquish Advertiser/Agency from its responsibilities hereunder. NeighborApps is not responsible for errors or omissions in, or the production quality of, furnished inserts. Advertiser and/or Agency shall be responsible for any additional charges incurred by NeighborApps arising out of Advertiser and/or Agency’s failure to deliver furnished inserts pursuant to NeighborApps specifications. In the event that NeighborApps is unable to Publish the furnished insert as a result of such failure to comply, Advertiser and/or Agency shall nevertheless remain liable for the space cost of such insert.
G. Errors in or Omissions of Advertisements
In the event of NeighborApps errors in or omissions of any advertisement(s), NeighborApps liability shall be limited to a credit of the amount paid attributable to the space of the error/omission (in no event shall such credit exceed the total amount paid to NeighborApps for the advertisement), and NeighborApps shall have no liability unless the error/omission is brought to the NeighborApps attention no later than 60 days after the advertisement is first Published. However, if a copy of the advertisement was provided or reviewed by Advertiser, NeighborApps shall have no liability. In no event will NeighborApps have any liability for errors or omissions caused by force majeure or errors in key numbers. In the event of a suspension of NeighborApps Service due to computer, software, or network malfunction, congestion, repair, strike, accidents, fire, flood, storms, terrorist attacks, acts of war or any other cause or contingencies or force majeure beyond the reasonable control of NeighborApps, it is agreed that such suspension shall not invalidate any advertising agreement but a) will give NeighborApps the option to cancel any advertising agreement, or if NeighborApps does not do so, b) upon resumption of NeighborApps Service, the agreement shall be continued and NeighborApps will have no liability for any errors or omissions or any damages or missed impressions caused by such suspension. IN NO EVENT WILL VOGUE HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR ANY ADVERTISING CREATIVE OR PRINTING COSTS, ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS, AND/OR CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE, SPECIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF INFORMATION AND THE LIKE.

I. Warranties; Indemnification
J. Responsibility for Payment of Advertising Bills
In the event an order is placed by an Agency on behalf of Advertiser, such Agency warrants and represents that it has full right and authority to place such order on behalf of Advertiser and that all legal obligations arising out of the placement of the advertisement will be binding on both Advertiser and Agency. Advertiser and its Agency, if there be one, each agrees to be jointly and severally liable for the payment of all bills and charges incurred for each advertisement placed on Advertiser’s behalf. Advertiser authorizes NeighborApps, at its election, to tender any bill to Agency, and such tender shall constitute due notice to Advertiser of the bill and such manner of billing shall in no way impair or limit the joint and several liability of Advertiser and Agency. Any bill tendered by NeighborApps shall constitute an account stated unless written objection thereto is received by NeighborApps within ten (10) days from the rendering thereof. Payment by Advertiser to Agency shall not discharge Advertiser’s liability to NeighborApps. The rights of NeighborApps shall in no way be affected by any dispute or claim between Advertiser and Agency. Advertiser and Agency agree to reimburse NeighborApps for its costs and attorneys’ fees in collecting any unpaid advertising charges. Advertiser confirms that it has appointed Agency, if one is specified, to be its authorized representative with respect to all matters relating to advertising placed on Advertiser’s behalf with the understanding that Agency may be paid a commission.
K. No Assignment of Advertising
Advertiser and its Agency may not use any advertising space either directly or indirectly for any business, organization, enterprise, product, or service other than that for which the advertising space is provided by NeighborApps, nor may Advertiser or Agency authorize any others to use any advertising space.
L. Republication of Advertisements
Advertiser and Agency agree that any submitted advertisements Published in a NeighborApps Service, may, at NeighborApps option, be republished, re-performed, retransmitted, archived or otherwise reused by NeighborApps or its agents in any form in whole or in part in all media now in existence or hereafter developed, whether or not combined with material of others. The copyright in any advertisement created by NeighborApps is owned by NeighborApps and may not be otherwise used by Advertiser or third parties without NeighborApps prior written consent.
M. Advertising Rates
NeighborApps “The Bubble” Magazine and Digital Edition rates contained in advertising orders that vary from NeighborApps published rates shall not be binding on NeighborApps and the advertisements ordered may be inserted and charged for at the actual schedule of NeighborApps applicable published rates. Magazine and Digital Edition rates and units of space are effective with the January 2014 issue. Announcement of any changes in such rates will be made thirty (30) days in advance of the closing date for the first issue affected by such new rates.

Announcement of any changes in NeighborApps rates for its Websites, Emails and/or non-Digital Edition applications will be made thirty (30) days in advance of the first advertisements affected by such new rates.

Interest may, at NeighborApps discretion, be charged at a rate of 1.5% per month on past due balances. NeighborApps may at its option require cash in advance or otherwise change payment terms.
P. Choice of Law and Forum
All issues relating to advertising will be governed by the laws of the State of Florida applicable to contracts to be performed entirely therein. Any action brought by Advertiser against NeighborApps relating to advertising must be brought in the state or federal courts in Florida. The parties hereby consent to the jurisdiction of the state or federal courts in Florida in connection with actions relating to advertising, including, but not limited to, actions to collect amounts due for advertising.
NEIGHBORAPPS DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES AND/OR GUARANTEES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WARRANTIES FOR NONINFRINGEMENT, ACCURACY, AVAILABILITY, UPTIME, MERCHANTABILITY AND/OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE IN CONNECTION WITH THE DISPLAY, PERFORMANCE AND TRANSMISSION OF ADVERTISEMENTS ON NEIGHBORAPPS SERVICES.
