2. The discounts described in the list of advertising rates are given only for the advertisements of an advertising client edited in a title within a year.

3. The advertising client is retrospective entitled to the discount according to his actual, within a year purchased advertisements if at the beginning of the period he has signed a contract which from the outset entitles him to a discount.

4. If an order is not carried out for reasons the publisher is not responsible for, the client regardless of possible further legal obligations, has to refund to the publisher the difference between the discount granted and the discount according to the actual purchase. The refund is dropped if the non-fullfilment is based on an act of God within the publisher’s risk.

8. Cancellations of an order in the form of withdrawals or alterations of the same are only effective, if they have been received in writing by the publishing company. If the publishing company receives the written cancellation before the advertising deadline, no fees will be charged. If the cancellation is received within 5 days after the advertising deadline, a cancellation fee of 30% will be charged. The full order sum will be charged for all cancellations received by the publishing company after this date.

9. If the client should not pay in advance the bill will be sent with a specimen copy. The bill is to be paid within the period stipulated in the price list (starting from the day the bill is received if no other period or payment in advance is agreed).

10. On default of payment the publisher is entitled to interrupt the further carrying out of the order in progress until payment and can demand payment in advance for the remaining advertisements. In case of bankruptcy or enforced settlement any discount is dropped.

12. The client is to pay all costs resulting of any considerable change of originally agreed material.
