Mistakes and Makegoods
FireCooker is not responsible for typographical errors unless such an error was made by FireCooker’s creative staff. We will only be responsible for returning charge on the portion of the advertisement that was rendered useless.
If a mistake in advertising occurs and is the fault of the publisher, one of the following courses of action will be pursued to remedy the mistake, whichever is most appropriate:
a) cancellation or reduction of relevant production charges.
b) insertion of a “make-good” advertisement in the next available issue.
c) cancellation of charges for the portion of the advertisement rendered valueless by the error.
All new advertisers will be considered “pre-pay accounts” until credit with FireCooker has been established. Credit is established after 5 prepaid advertisements have run in a scheduled campaign.
In the event of nonpayment, FireCooker reserves the right to hold advertiser and/or its advertising agency jointly and severally liable for such monies as are due to FireCooker. The advertiser and/or agency will be held responsible for, and agrees to reimburse FireCooker for court costs, attorney fees, and any other expenses incurred in the process of collecting debts due FireCooker. Payment is due upon receipt of billing. An account balance older than 30 days is considered past due. No advertising will be accepted for accounts 60 days past due, after which the advertiser’s account will be barred.
FireCooker reserves the right to review/reject any advertising that may be considered offensive or harmful to its readers.
Advertisements cannot deceive the user. For example, they may not mimic or resemble Windows/Mac/Unix dialogue boxes, error messages, etc.
