1.1 These terms will apply to you every time you request publication of advertising or services in any publications owned by RIDE Media Pty Ltd (ABN 33086301742), now referred to as “RIDE”.
1.2 When booking advertising with RIDE, you will be sent a Booking Confirmation which will contain the specific terms that will apply to the publication of your advertising to which you must reply with your acceptance.
1.3 Placement of advertising on any digital media operated by RIDE or its subsidiaries is governed by separate terms and conditions, “RIDE Media Digital Advertising Terms and Conditions”.
2. WHAT RIGHTS DOES RIDE MEDIA HAVE
2.1 All advertising matter is subject to the approval of the publisher who reserves the right to reject any advertising material.
2.2 Advertising material must be supplied as per agreed deadline at time of booking. All advertising material is subject to editorial approval to ensure the material complies with industry standards. This deadline allows advertisers time to amend the material if it does not comply.
2.3 Advertising positions within the publication are entirely at the option of RIDE unless the required positional loading has been paid or otherwise agreed in writing.
2.4 If your advertising is editorial in style, RIDE can add the word “advertising” above or below the advertising.
2.5 No advertisement is accepted on the basis that there will be editorial mention of the advertisers’ goods or services. Dissatisfaction with any editorial content which may appear does not invalidate or impact upon the advertising contract in any way.
3. SPECIFICATIONS AND DEADLINES
3.1 If correct copy and materials are not supplied by the deadline, RIDE is permitted to insert a previously published advertisement, or alternatively, charge the advertiser or his agent for the space booked.
3.2 The Material must be in the form that RIDE requires for the Publication in which the advertising is to be published. If you do not deliver the Material in the required form, RIDE can engage a third party to convert the Material to RIDE’s requirements. You must, within 14 days, pay RIDE for the costs of the conversion, plus a handling fee of 25%.
3.3 You may request for the return of your material from RIDE prior to the publication material deadline. You must pay the expenses incurred by RIDE along with your Fee.
3.4 RIDE can change the on sale date of Publications at any time without notice.
4. PAYING FOR ADVERTISING
4.1 The Booking Confirmation will contain the amount you have to pay for the advertising (Fee). The Fee does not include GST. RIDE will provide you with an invoice stating the Fee and the GST payable.
4.2 Terms of payment are 30 days from receipt of invoice which is issued upon publication. You cannot alter the Fee, even if you feel that the advertising was not placed or published in the manner that you expected.
4.3 Invoices not paid in full by the due date may, at the discretion of RIDE, attract a late payment fee equal to 5% of any balance owing. This amount will be applied where time and expenses to recover monies owed exceed reasonable quantities.
5. AGENCY COMMISSION
5.1 If you are an advertising agent, RIDE may agree that you will get a commission on the Fee, but the commission will only apply if you pay the Fee (less the commission, plus the GST payable) before the invoice due date.
5.2 If you don’t pay the Fee (less the commission) by that date, you cannot claim the commission – you must pay the Fee and the GST payable.
6. HOW CAN I CANCEL ADVERTISING
6.1 If you cancel within 30 days of on-sale date of Publication, you have to pay the Fee. This applies even if you booked the advertising after this cancellation deadline.
7. WARRANTIES FROM YOU
7.1 You warrant to RIDE that your advertising or services:
a) is true and accurate in all respects;
b) does not infringe any rights of any person (such as copyright and trademark rights);
c) does not use the name and image of any person without their consent;
d) is not obscene, indecent or defamatory; and
e) does not contravene any federal, state or territory statute, regulation or other law including the Competition and Consumer Act (CTH).

8. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

a) RIDE excludes liability for all indirect, consequential or special losses or damages including loss or profits howsoever arising; and
b) The total liability of RIDE howsoever arising is limited to the supply of the relevant advertising again or the payment of the cost of having those services supplied again, whichever RIDE determines in its absolute discretion.
8.2 RIDE will not be liable to you or any other person for any loss of whatever kind suffered as a result of an advertisement not being available for publication or not being published where such event arises from any cause beyond RIDE’s reasonable control.
9. LIABILITY OF AGENTS
9.1 If you carry on business as an advertising agent, you acknowledge that you contract with RIDE in your own right. You are principally liable under any contract entered into with RIDE.
10.1 These terms are governed by the laws in force in New South Wales, Australia.
10.2 You may not assign or otherwise transfer any of your rights or obligations under these terms to any other person without RIDE’s consent. RIDE may assign or otherwise transfer any of its rights or obligations under these terms without your consent.
10.3 If RIDE fails to enforce, or delays in enforcing, any of these terms, this will not operate as a waiver and will not affect RIDE’s right to later require strict compliance with these terms.
10.4 The terms of the Booking Confirmation and this agreement record the entire agreement between you and RIDE relating to the matters dealt with in this agreement and supersede all previous arrangements, understandings or representations, whether written, oral or both, relating to these matters.
