Payment Terms

Additional 2% discount applies if payment is received within 10 days of

invoice date. Billing to the advertising agency is based on acceptance by

the advertiser of “dual responsibility” for payment if the agency does not

remit within 90 days. Any advertising agency or third-party booking space

reservations on behalf of a client must be current in their payment status.

CATS reserves the right to contact the client to inform them of the agency’s

delinquent payment status and the potential consequences for both ad

agency and the client. Prepayment is required for all first-time advertisers

and may be required if subsequent invoices are not paid in a timely

manner. Publisher reserves the right to notify client if agency refuses to prepay.

Advertisers and their agencies assume full liability for all content of advertisements printed and responsibility for any claims arising

therefrom against the publisher. The publisher is not liable for errors in Ad Index listings. All advertisements must be clearly identified with a trademark and/or signature of the advertisement. The word “Advertisement” shall be printed prominently on advertisements

that, in the opinion of the publisher, might be confused with editorial pages. Publisher reserves the right to reject any advertisement not considered suitable for publication.  CATS reserves the right to cancel any ad contract at any point.
