When these terms apply

These terms apply whenever you ask us, Allied Press Limited, to place an advertisement with any of our print, electronic or broadcasting media, or you use any of our advertising services. When we refer to "advertisement", it includes public and family notices, and anything else you ask us to publish.

Placing Advertisements

When you ask us to place an advertisement, you agree that all information you provide to us is correct and accurate.

When you come into our offices or telephone to book an advertisement, our records of the information you give us, including telephone numbers, addresses, dates of insertion, the number of insertions and advertising copy, are conclusive.

Booking On-Line

Where you use our web and on-line services to book an advertisement, you agree:

You must not: We may stop, restrict, suspend or change our website and on-line services at any time.

Costs, Payments and Credit Terms

You must pay our fees and charges. We will tell you the cost of each advertisement, how to pay and the due date for payment. You must pay us by that date. If you do not do so, we may charge you all costs of recovery, including credit collection fees, commissions and our legal costs on a solicitor and client basis.

Where you pay by credit card, the payment is processed by an independent third-party provider. You agree that we may disclose information about you to that provider on a confidential basis. Please contact us for further information about the provider.

We may also charge you interest on any overdue amount at up to 15% per annum. This is calculated daily and charged monthly until the outstanding amount has been paid in full.

Our credit terms policy applies. For a copy of the policy please contact us.

Compliance and Cancellation

You must comply with the terms of all advertising contracts and arrangements you have with us.

Once an advertising booking is made it cannot be cancelled except with our written approval and cancellation fees may apply.


We will classify each advertisement under the heading which we believe is appropriate for our readers.

We may alter, abbreviate or omit any advertisement which we believe is out of proportion or upsetting to the layout, balance or general appearance of the publication.

We will do our best to give you the environment and positioning you ask for your advertisement, but we do not guarantee that the product features in your advertisement will be the only product of that type featured in advertisements on any one page or place. We do not guarantee the availability of colour classified advertising. If colour is not available for the time you have booked your advertisement, it will appear in black and white and we will refund for colour loading.

An advertisement that redirects our readers to alternative media e.g. the internet, may not be accepted for publication.

Family Notices

Family notices (birth, engagement, marriage, death and in memoriam notices) must be authenticated to our satisfaction. In the case of death notices, notification from a recognised funeral director or other acceptable accreditation is required.

Intellectual Property Rights and Re-Use

We may reproduce an advertisement on the internet, or in any print, broadcasting or electronic advertising media we offer.

Where you use any aspect of our creative services in the design or production of an advertisement, we own the copyright in that work.


We will ask you to provide us with relevant personal information so as we can provide our advertising services to you. We may also use this information for other purposes listed in our privacy policy and may disclose it to our related companies. We will comply with the Privacy Act to protect your personal information.

When you book an advertisement that mentions someone else, we reserve the right to disclose your name and contact details to them.

Your Assurances

When we accept an advertisement for placement, we rely on your assurance that the advertisement:

You must indemnify us against all loss suffered and liability incurred by us arising out of any breach of these assurances and from any costs we incur in making corrections or amendments in accordance with these terms.

We may amend, abbreviate or refuse to place any advertisement if it appears to contravene the law, is objectionable, or for any other reason.

Our Liability

We take every care with each advertisement you ask us to place, however you are not entitled to compensation of any sort if, for any reason, an advertisement is incorrect, wrongly classified, placed early or late, or not placed at all.

Where an advertisement is incorrect due solely to our error, you must tell us immediately after the advertisement is placed and we will place it again at our cost. If it is a repeat advertisement, we will only do this if you tell us about the error immediately after the advertisement is first placed.

Where we fail to place an advertisement for any reason, whether or not it is within our control (including strike or equipment failure), we will reschedule the advertisement at the next opportunity on the same terms and at the same price.

If you ask us to place an advertisement for the purposes of a business, the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 does not apply. Otherwise, the Act applies and these terms do not limit any rights you have under that Act.

Except as set out in the last three paragraphs, we exclude all liability we may have to you. We are not liable to you for anything else caused by or resulting from anything we do or do not do, or delay in doing. This exclusion applies whatever you are claiming for (including loss of profits or business) and however liability arises or might arise if it were not for this clause.

Other Terms

Other terms may also apply to some of our specific services. We will tell you about those terms when you use those services. You agree to comply with those terms and should there be any inconsistency between those terms and these terms the terms of the specific services will apply.


These terms are governed by and must be construed in accordance with the laws of New Zealand. You agree to submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of New Zealand Courts.
