Print Ad Materials

- The advertiser’s digital ad materials are expected to run for the time specified on the Ad Insertion Order. If the Advertiser requires the Publisher to replace any running ad with new materials prior to the completion of the ad run, the Advertiser will be billed a flat fee of $75.
- Cancellation of any scheduled ad insertion will not be accepted unless notification is received in writing prior to the space reservation closing date as published in the Construction Executive media kit.

Rates, Invoices, Payments and Collections
- Advertisers under contract will be protected under the rates on the Ad Insertion Order.
- The Publisher holds the Advertiser and its Agency jointly and severally liable for payment of all advertising insertions. This applies even when a sequential liability clause is included in the contract or Insertion order.
- The publisher will invoice the agency or advertiser immediately after publication and will send a digital tearsheet as proof of insertion. Invoices and tearsheets are sent via email unless otherwise specified by the advertiser or agency.
- All invoice amounts are net to publisher. Agencies must add any agency commission to the net cost to calculate gross rates.
- The publisher reserves the right to require full payment in advance from Advertisers with poor credit history or that have not previously established credit. The Publisher also may require pre-payment for insertions such as advertorials, directory listings and other advertising options that require the Publisher to provide graphic design or other creative services. In cases where pre-payment is required, the Publisher must receive payment by the invoice due date in order to guarantee publication.
- Accounts outstanding for 60 days or more will be restricted from future advertising until payment is received, and the account will be referred to the principal client. Payment not received after 120 days will be turned over to a collection agency.
- The Publisher will make its best effort to deliver Added-Value benefits, but it is incumbent upon the Advertiser to complete CE submission forms and provide added-value materials by the deadlines stated in the Ad Insertion Order. Extensions to added-value materials deadlines are granted at the sole discretion of the Publisher. The Advertiser understands that failure to provide materials by the due date may result in forfeiture of the Added-Value benefit with no corresponding reduction in price, make-good or credit to the Advertiser.
- Construction Executive is unable to provide any statistics for performance of print display ads.
- For digital products, statistics will be provided in the format and timeframe as described in the specs for each digital product. Construction Executive will choose the format statistics will be provided in. Statistics may be limited to metrics listed in the ad specs for each digital product. Any special requests for additional information, or statistics to be provided in a format provided by the advertiser, must be agreed upon before acceptance of the Advertising Insertion Order.
Advertising Terms and Conditions Updates
- The Publisher reserves the right to update or amend these Advertising Terms and Conditions at any time, for any reason, without notice to the Advertiser. The current ad terms will always be posted https://ce.magazinexperts.com/advertising-terms-and-conditions/
