                   The Advertiser, Agency (if any) and Publisher hereby agree to be governed by the following conditions:

                   Color: 10 days prior issue date.
                   B&W: 7 days prior issue date.
                   (Earlier during holiday weeks.)

                   Advertiser or Agency may cancel an order for advertising prior to the material due date. The cancel-
                   lation must be confirmed by the Publisher.

                   Contract space must be used within one year of the first insertion. If there are fewer insertions during
                   that period than the number upon which the rate is based, Advertiser or Agency will be required to
                   pay the rate based upon the actual insertions.

                   The Advertiser and Agency are liable for payment for all published advertisements. Invoices are
                   payable within 30 days of publication. In the event that the Publisher is not paid in full for an adver-
                   tisement as due, Advertiser and Agency agree to pay the sum of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per
                   month as interest on the unpaid balance, until paid, and all costs of collection incurred by the
                   Publisher, including attorney’s fees and costs.

                   The Publisher shall not be liable for any failure to publish all or any portion of the issue in which an
                   advertisement is contained if such failure is due to occurrences beyond the Publisher’s control. Failure
                   by Publisher to insert an advertisement invalidates this order but shall not constitute a breach of con-
                   tract. Advertisements omitted from any particular issue or issues shall be compensated for either
                   through make-ups or rate adjustments.

                   The Advertiser and Agency shall indemnify and hold harmless the Publisher, its officers, agents and
                   employees against claims, suits, expenses (including legal fees) and losses resulting from the publi-
                   cation of the contents of the advertisement, including (without limitation) claims or suits for libel, vio-
                   lation of right of privacy, copyright infringement or plagiarism.

                   The Advertiser and Agency hereby acknowledge that they have received and read the Publisher’s
                   “Advertising Rate Card.” To the extent not inconsistent with the terms and conditions herein, the terms
                   and conditions on the “Advertising Rate Card” in effect on the contract’s signature date are hereby
                   incorporated into these conditions.

                   a. The Publisher shall not be bound by any condition, printed or otherwise, appearing on order
                       blanks or copy instructions when such conditions conflict with the provisions set forth herein.
                   b. All advertisements are published by the Publisher on the representation of the Advertiser or Agency
                       that both are authorized to publish the entire content and subject matter of the advertisement.
                   c. The Advertiser and Agency agree not to make promotional reference to the Publisher or any of its
                       publications in any way without first obtaining the prior written permission of the Publisher for each
                       such use.
                   d. Publisher reserves the right to insert the caption “Advertisement” above any advertisement that sim-
                       ulates editorial content.
                   e. This contract contains the entire agreement between the parties relating to the subject matter here-
                       in contained, and no change or modification of any of its terms and provisions shall be effective
                       unless made in writing and signed by both parties.
