3) TERMS & CONDITIONS OF ADVERTISING
Terms and definitions
These terms shall apply in addition to all other terms and conditions on this site. In the event of a conflict arising out of these terms and any others on the site, the provisions of these terms shall prevail.
For the purposes of these terms, an ‘Advertisement’ refers to all types of advertisements including (without limitation) Web Listings, and Featured Listings on britainsfinest.co.uk, our apps, and on the Britain's Finest Newsletter.
SpeedyBooker.com Ltd accepts the publication of the Advertisements on the terms set out below and by placing an order, the Advertiser (being the person or organisation placing the order for the Advertisement, whether they are the advertiser of the product or service referred to in the Advertisement or the advertising agency or media buyer for such advertiser) accepts and agrees to be bound by these terms in full.
a) Web Listings
The Advertiser’s listing can include photographs (3 minimum), a 150 word description, facilities and services, general info, special offers, a video and customer reviews.
Photos and logos should be supplied in JPEG format.
SpeedyBooker.com Ltd reserves the right at any time to change the format of a Web Listing.
b) Slideshow Advertisements
Slideshow Advertisements should be supplied in high resolution JPEG format. We will then check that the image meets our quality standards, and if so, size the image to the correct size. We reserve the right to reject your order of a Slideshow Advertisement if an image that meets our quality standards cannot be supplied.
Duration of agreements
The start date of Web Listings and Slideshow Advertisements will be agreed by both the Advertiser and SpeedyBooker.com Ltd.
The duration of the agreement for Web Listings will be until the end of the calendar year in question, and the Slideshow Advertisement will be for one month unless otherwise agreed.
Without limiting its other rights or remedies, SpeedyBooker.com Ltd may terminate these terms at any time by giving to the Advertiser no less than one (1) months' prior written notice. On termination of these terms:
(a) SpeedyBooker.com Ltd will refund a pro-rata rate for any paid-for advertisements outstanding, or if applicable, the Advertiser will pay to SpeedyBooker.com Ltd any fees that have accrued from the start date of the Advertisements to the date of termination; and
(b) the accrued rights, remedies, obligations and liabilities of the parties as at expiry or termination shall not be affected, including the right to claim damages in respect of any breach of the Contract which existed at or before the date of termination or expiry.
Content, display, placement and links
The Advertiser will ensure any Advertisements it wishes SpeedyBooker.com Ltd to use will be delivered to SpeedyBooker.com Ltd in a timely manner and in any event on or before such date as SpeedyBooker.com Ltd may notify the Advertiser in writing from time to time and the Advertiser shall be solely responsible for delivering the Advertisements to SpeedyBooker.com Ltd.
Where SpeedyBooker.com Ltd considers an Advertisement to be unsuitable or contrary to these terms, it may, without any liability to the Advertiser, reject, remove or require any Advertisement (or part of it) to be amended.
The Advertiser represents, warrants and undertakes to SpeedyBooker.com Ltd that:
(a) any information supplied in connection with the Advertisement is accurate, complete, true and not misleading;
(b) it has obtained the consent of any living person whose name or image (in whole or in part) is contained in any Advertisement;
(c) the Advertisements are legal, decent, honest and truthful, and comply with all applicable laws, regulations or codes of practice; and
(d) the Advertisements are not libellous or obscene and do not infringe the rights of any person (including any person's intellectual property rights).
Where the Advertiser is an advertising agency or media buyer, the Advertiser further warrants that it is authorised by the advertiser of a product or service to place the Advertisement with SpeedyBooker.com Ltd and the Advertiser will compensate SpeedyBooker.com Ltd for any claim made by such advertiser against SpeedyBooker.com Ltd.
Slideshow Advertisements will link to the listing page of the Advertiser, unless otherwise agreed.
For Web Listings, the links on the profile pages will have a no follow attribute and will pass through a gateway page so that SpeedyBooker.com Ltd can track website statistics.
Fees and payment
The prices for the Advertisements will be set out in the quotation provided by SpeedyBooker.com Ltd, and all prices quoted are exclusive of VAT. SpeedyBooker.com Ltd reserves the right to change the prices at any time. Once an order for an Advertisement has been received the order is non-cancellable and non-refundable.
All Advertisements will be invoiced on date of agreement, unless otherwise agreed.
All invoices are payable within 30 days from the date of invoice and time for payment is of the essence.
SpeedyBooker.com Ltd may refuse to publish any Advertisement for any Advertiser who has not paid any sums due for any advertising, as required under these terms.
Without limiting any other right or remedy of SpeedyBooker.com Ltd, if the Advertiser fails to make any payment due to SpeedyBooker.com ltd under these terms by the due date for payment, SpeedyBooker.com Ltd shall have the right to charge interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 2% per month accruing on a daily basis from the date of due payment until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgement, and compounding monthly.
All fees are non-refundable and will not be pro-rated should Advertiser decide to discontinue the display of a Slideshow Advertisement, Featured Listing, or Web Listing.
Notwithstanding the other terms and conditions on SpeedyBooker.com Ltd's site, the Advertiser acknowledges and agrees that SpeedyBooker.com Ltd owns the intellectual property rights in all Advertisements written or designed by it, or on its behalf.
The Advertiser grants to SpeedyBooker.com Ltd a non-exclusive, royalty-free, irrevocable licence to:
(a) use the Advertiser’s names, trade marks and/or logos as SpeedyBooker.com Ltd may consider reasonably necessary for the purposes of publishing the Advertisements; and
(b) reproduce the Advertisements including photographs in any media at any time (we will endeavour to let you know when we send your photo to a media publication).
All agreements are non-exclusive, meaning SpeedyBooker.com Ltd may have Advertisements from several parties appearing on its site and in the Britain's Finest apps at the same time.
SpeedyBooker.com Ltd will not be responsible for any liability, loss, cost, claim, damage or causes of action of any kind (and whether direct or indirect) that it may suffer as a result of the transactions contemplated hereby, including but not limited to loss resulting from service delays and incomplete or interrupted service, regardless of cause or fault.
Truth in advertising / indemnification for liability
The Advertiser is solely responsible for any liability arising out of or relating to Advertisements (as the case may be) and the use and/or publication of them, and/or any material to which users can link through to. The Advertiser represents and warrants that any information found on URLs hyperlinked from Advertisements will not violate any criminal laws or any rights of any third parties, including, but not limited to, such violations as infringement or misappropriation of any copyright, patent, trade mark, trade secret, image or other proprietary or confidential information or property right, false advertising, unfair competition, defamation, invasion of privacy or rights, violation of any anti discrimination law or regulation, or any other right of any person or entity.
The Advertiser agrees to indemnify SpeedyBooker.com Ltd and to hold SpeedyBooker.com Ltd, and its officers, directors, employees and agents harmless from any and all liability, loss, cost, damages, claims or causes of action of any kind, including reasonable legal fees and expenses that may be incurred by SpeedyBooker.com Ltd, arising out of or related to the Advertiser’s breach of any representations and warranties in these terms.
SpeedyBooker.com Ltd's liability for losses suffered by the Advertiser as a result of a breach of these terms by SpeedyBooker.com Ltd is strictly limited to the price paid for the Advertisements.
To the fullest extent permitted by law, SpeedyBooker.com Ltd expressly excludes any liability for any indirect, special or consequential loss or damage arising out of or in connection with these terms or an Advertisement, and also excludes, without limitation, any liability for:
(a) loss of income or revenue;

(c) loss of profits or contracts;
(d) loss of anticipated savings;
(e) loss of data;
(f) loss of goodwill;
(g) wasted management or office time; and
(h) for any other loss or damage of any kind, however arising and whether caused by tort (including negligence), breach of contract or otherwise, even if foreseeable.
This does not affect SpeedyBooker.com Ltd’s liability for death or personal injury arising from its negligence, nor its liability for fraudulent misrepresentation or misrepresentation as to a fundamental matter, nor any other liability which cannot be excluded or limited under applicable law. Severability
If any of these terms are determined by any competent authority to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, such term, condition or provision will to that extent be severed from the remaining terms, conditions and provisions which will continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Agreements shall be governed by English law and the parties agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts in connection with any disputes which might arise out of, under or in connection with this agreement.
