A signed NC State magazine advertising contract or a signed insertion order from a recognized advertising agency is required before the publication of display advertising.

All advertisements are subject to approval. The publisher reserves the right to reject or cancel any advertising for any reason at any time. Advertising simulating editorial content will not be accepted.

All advertisements are accepted and published entirely on the written representation that the advertiser and/or advertising agency is authorized to publish the entire contents and subject matter thereof. In consideration of the publication of advertisements, the advertiser and agency will fully indemnify and hold harmless the publisher from and against any loss, cost, and expense resulting from any and all claims, demands, suits, actions, proceedings, recoveries or expenses of any nature whatsoever arising out of the publication of such advertisements, including, without limitation, those resulting from claims or suits of libel, violation of right of privacy, plagiarism or copyright infringement.

Space that has been reserved may not be canceled after the space reservation deadline.

Digitally formatted ads are required by ad file due deadline. The delivery dates are estimates and are not guaranteed.

If advertising materials are not received by the ad file due date for an issue in which space has been reserved, the publisher reserves the right to run a previous ad or, in the event no advertisement is on file, a house ad. In such cases, the advertiser remains responsible for all space charges.

The publisher will retain advertising material for one year or will return to the client only upon request. The publisher is not responsible for retaining advertising material beyond one year.

The publisher is not responsible for errors in key numbers. No conditions, printed or otherwise, appearing on contracts, insertion orders or copy instruction that conflict with publisher’s policies will be binding on the publisher.
