General Terms of Business for Advertising
Important: Please read these Terms. They govern the agreement between the Buyer (as defined below) and Purbeck Media Ltd.
1. In these Terms:
a. “Advertisement” means promotional matter to be printed on the page or separately inserted in the Magazine
b. “the Buyer” means the person placing with the Publisher an order for the insertion of an Advertisement, whether such person be the advertiser of the product or service promoted thereby or making the announcement therein (“the Advertiser”) or the Advertiser’s advertising agency or media buyer
c. “Confirmation of Booking” means the document issued by the Publisher to the Buyer or the verbal agreement between the Publisher and the Buyer at the time of booking
d. “Copy Date” means the latest date (as specified in the Confirmation of Booking either verbally or in print) by which advertising copy must be received by the Publisher from the Buyer to enable the Publisher to publish the relevant Advertisement in the issue of the Magazine selected by the Buyer.
e. “Edition” means an edition of any monthly issue of the Magazine which edition is edited for and/or distributed in a geographical area (defined by postcode) which is distinct from other geographical areas (similarly defined) in which other Editions are distributed

Advertisers understand when booking advertising that the Publisher agrees to distribute 20,000 copies of the Purbeck Gazette each month to households and businesses throughout the stated area. As the number of published magazines is less than the total number of households and businesses as recognised by the local district council, the Publisher agrees to distribute 20,000 copies throughout the distribution area to ensure a good, even coverage for the benefit of advertisers. Not every household or business will receive a copy, and the Publisher commits to uploading each monthly edition to the website to allow those who do not receive a paper copy to access it.
