18 18 ADVERTISING TERMS AND CONDITIONS 1 Definition of insertion agreement The Terms and Conditions of Insertion govern contractual relations between the advertising client or advertising broker and the publisher, provided that nothing else has been agreed in writing. By entering into a written or verbal insertion agreement, the publisher undertakes to ensure that one or several advertisements appear in the designated publication, while the advertising client undertakes to pay the costs of insertion. 2 Applicable legal norms The publisher s terms of business and the provisions of the Swiss Code of Obligations (OR) are the principal regulators of the contractual relationship. 3 Swiss franc agreements and repeat orders 3.1 Permissibility Swiss franc agreements and repeat orders are only per missible for advertisements of an individual advertising client. Special SZW/VSW regulations apply to corporations and holding companies. 3.2 Contracts and their duration The size of the contract must normally be known at the time of first ordering, but always before the appearance of the first advertisement. The duration of the contracts and repeat orders begins at the latest on the date of the first insertion, unless a different date is agreed when the contract is concluded: it is valid for 12 months and cannot normally be altered. If the duration of a contract begins before or on the 15th of a month, then it runs to the end of the previous month in the following year. 3.3 Prices and changes in prices A contract is made at the basic price for each publication. The discount due for all categories of advertisement eligible to discounts will be calculated on the contract in accordance with the price list in effect at the time. Changes in prices, discounts and VAT come into effect immediately even on current orders. The client placing the advertisement has the right to withdraw from the contract within two weeks of notification of the new price. In this case, he is only entitled to the discount based on the discount scale that corresponds to the quantity actually taken. 4 Discounts 4.1 Swiss franc contract discount The client is entitled to the discount set forth in the price list for every contract made in Swiss francs. 4.2 Retrospective discount If the volume of advertisements placed within a year exceeds the number previously agreed, a retrospective discount will be calculated on the total volume according to the discount scale and granted to the client at the end of the accounting period. 4.3 Repeat order discount Repeat order discounts will be granted on orders for the number of advertisements (within 12 months) shown in the discount scale that are simultaneously allocated. The size may not be changed, text or subject matter only in cases of full printing material. Extensions and renewals of a repeat order are possible if the publisher is informed before the appearance of the last insertion in its previous form and within a period of 12 months. The discount will be calculated on the basis of the new total volume or according to the corresponding discount level and granted retrospectively, taking into account advertisements that have already been invoiced. Repeat orders are limited to those publications with price lists that allow for this option. 4.4 Discount adjustments The same discount rate is normally applicable throughout the duration of the contract. 4.5 Reclaim of discount If the number of advertisements taken up has not reached the agreed volume at the end of the period of the contract, the client will receive a reclaim of discount based on the discount scale. Discount is not generally reclaimed if the missing volume is no more than 3% of that originally agreed. 4.6 Agency commission, annual sales bonus Agency commission (AC): An agency commission (AC) of 15% of the net amount invoiced is granted on advertising orders from advertising and media agencies entitled to a commission. In such cases, the basic gross price is used as the basis of the calculation. An AC of 5% is granted on inserts/banderols. Annual sales bonus (ASB II): An annual sales bonus (ASB II) of 15% of the net amount invoiced is granted to all direct clients whose advertising order amounts to at least Fr in a given year. In such cases, the basic gross price is used as the basis of the calculation. An ASB of 5% is granted on inserts/banderols. Agency commission and annual sales bonus: Agency commissions and annual sales bonuses may not be cumulated. AC and ASB may be reclaimed if the terms of payment are breached. 5 Premature cancellation of contract 5.1 Suspension by the advertising client The cancellation or postponement of confirmed orders, even for compelling reasons, can only be accepted up to the advertisement deadline. 5.2 Cancellation of contract by the publisher If a newspaper ceases publication during the period of the contract, the publisher may withdraw from the contract without obligation for compensation. In this case, the client placing the advertisement is not released from the obligation to pay for advertisements which have already appeared. In the event of premature cancellation of the contract by the publisher, the entitlements to discounts calculated on the original total amount agreed remain valid. 6 Terms of payment 6.1 Date of payment Unless otherwise agreed, invoices are to be paid within 30 days without cash discount. Under the laws of debt collection, all entitlements to discount lapse on all unpaid invoices. These discounts will be invoiced subsequently. 6.2 Interest rate Interest may be charged on invoices not paid within 30 days. The interest rate is 5% (Section 104, OR). 6.3 Del credere risk The del credere risk of a third party is to be borne by the advertising client. In other words, the contractual partner of the publisher undertakes to vouch for the payment or other fulfilment of obligation of the mediating third party. 7 Other services Extraordinary services are invoiced plus VAT additionally, in accordance with industry standard rates. These include services
19 19 ADVERTISING TERMS AND CONDITIONS such as production of printing material, creative copy and artwork, text drafts, translations, media analysis and evaluations, etc., which exceed the usual services (e.g. simple media schedules, cost calculations, etc.) as well as desktop publishing costs, express surcharges, repeated alterations to orders, subsequent new regrouping of invoices, interim announcements for ongoing contracts, third-party services, and so on. 8 Requested positioning Requests by the client for particular positioning of an advertisement are not accepted as binding. If the advertisement appears in a different place to the position specified or requested for technical reasons, this does not constitute a reason to withhold payment or demand compensation. 9 Complaints If an advertisement is published incorrectly such that the sense or the effect of the advertisement is significantly affected, compensation will be offered in the form of advertising space of up to the same size as the faulty advertisement. Telephone orders, alterations or cancellations are made at the client s risk. Further liability is declined. Printing errors which do not affect either the sense or the effect of the advertisement do not confer entitlement to price reductions. The publishing house guarantees a good, technically correct reproduction of the advertisement. This is conditional upon the client supplying a perfect, ready-to-print copy for the relevant printing process. The client may be informed of deviations from the required standard. Slight differences in colour are within the range of tolerance of the printing process on account of the paper and inks used, and do not confer any entitlement to price reductions. Delayed delivery of editions due to technical problems does not confer entitlement to compensation. No responsibility is accepted for printed material which does not match the technical standards of the newspaper. Complaints must be made within one month of receipt of invoice. Complaints can no longer be accepted once this interval has elapsed. The disputing of one or more items on the invoice does not absolve the client from his obligation to pay the rest of the invoice within the time specified in the section Terms of payment. 10 Refusal of advertisements The publisher reserves the right to refuse advertisements without giving a reason. Clients cannot make advertising business conditional on publication of certain editorial articles. 11 Legal compliance The client bears full responsibility towards the publishing house, the authorities and the publication s readership for the content of the advertisement. If the newspaper is held responsible by a third party, the client undertakes to release the newspaper from any claim. Criminal and civil law: Subject to the mandatory provisions of press law, the client placing the advertisement bears sole responsibility and financial consequences if any laws are broken by the publishing of his advertisement. He undertakes to completely absolve the publisher and release him from all responsibility for any claim made by a third party in connection with the content of the advertisement. Laws of unfair competition (UWG): The client guarantees that his advertisement does not violate the Swiss legislation on unfair competition. Where this law is violated, the client bears full responsibility for any consequences which might affect the publisher. In particular, the client undertakes to assume all costs which might arise for the publisher from a UWG proceeding. Advertisements which are not clearly recognizable as such from their design will be marked with the word Anzeige. Neither the basic font of the newspaper/periodical nor the titles (script and imprint) of the newspaper/periodical may be used for advertisements in editorial form. 12 Counter-representation Pursuant to Section 28 g ff. of the Swiss Civil Code (ZGB), anyone whose character is directly affected by the representation of facts in periodically issued media has the right to counterrepresentation. The publishing house can refuse the right to counter-representation if it is obviously untrue or if it violates the law or good morals. The client who has made the contested assertions undertakes to assume any costs arising from the exercising of the right to counter-representation. 13 Electronic transfer of printed matter No responsibility whatsoever is accepted for data supplied by the client (on data storage media, via modem or ISDN) whose content is defective or incomplete. The publisher also declines all liability if data supplied cannot be processed or used by standard means and this gives rise to defects in the quality of the printed product. Additional expenses arising will be charged to the client based on the time involved. The publisher s liability is limited to errors on his part that can be attributed to gross negligence. 14 Approval for printing Only advertisements produced by ourselves (invoiced separately) from supplied repro-suitable originals will be sent to the client in proof form prior to printing, with details of the deadline for accepting corrections. Should the publisher receive no report by this deadline, approval for printing is assumed. Corrections that deviate from the original draft and require reworking of the litho can only be accepted if the necessary time is available and the client is willing to pay the associated expense. No test prints are made of supplied exposure-ready data. 15 Printing material The client is responsible for the timely delivery of printing material or loose inserts. Without express agreement, the publishing house or the advertising company is not obliged to keep or return the printing and data material. 16 Rate changes Rates are subject to change, with the revised rates applying to all advertising clients simultaneously. The client placing the advertisement has the right to withdraw from the agreement within two weeks of notification of revised rates. In this case, he is only entitled to the discount based on the discount scale that corresponds to the quantity actually taken. 17 Court of jurisdiction The court of jurisdiction is the applicable court for the territory of the company office that concluded the insertion agreement. In this instance, the court of jurisdiction is Zurich. The present Terms and Conditions of Business come into force on January 1, 2015 and supersede all previous versions. This English version is a translation of the original German version. In case of dissension or dispute the German version applies.
