PAYMENT
Payment must accompany ad material for any new client. Clients in a multiple month campaign may request credit terms for subsequent months. Accounts past due over 30 days will be subject to a monthly 1.5% service charge. The publisher reserves the right to cancel any past due account without notice.


PRE-PAYMENT OPTION DISCOUNT
Prepaying 3 months in advance qualifies for an additional 5% discount. Prepaying 6 or 12 months in advance qualifies for an additional 10% discount.


AGENCY DISCOUNTS
Advertising agencies may be eligible for a 15% agency discount off the open rate. Agency discounts may not be combined with frequency discounts.


PROCESS COLOR
4-color process is available on a limited basis. The cost is $100 to $200 per zone, depending of the ad size. The client must provide final ad proof.


DEADLINE
Display ads should be received by the 18th of the prior month to assure publication in the next month’s issue. This deadline may possibly be extended in certain months with advance approval or if ad is not appearing in the San Diego zone. Non-camera-ready ads should be submitted as soon as possible to allow for production time. A proof will be provided prior to presstime for the purpose of checking accuracy of information, not design changes.


CANCELLATIONS
Cancellation of a 3-, 6-, or 12-times ad campaign, receiving a frequency discount, prior to completion of the campaign, will result in the advertiser being re-billed at the open rate or at the discounted rate based upon the number of months the ad actually ran.

Insertion orders canceled less than seven (7) days prior to publication will incur a 50% charge for the reserved space.


POLICIES
The publishers reserve the right to reject or cancel any advertising for any reason or no stated reason.
Advertisers and agencies are responsible, without limitation, for any and all claims made thereof against the Christian Examiner, its officers or employees.

Liability for errors shall not exceed the cost of that portion of the space occupied by such error. All claims must be made within 10 days of publication. The publisher shall not be liable for any indirect or subsequent damage due to loss of business or profits.
