The websites listed on this website (www.interactivereality.co.za) are the products of Interactive Reality cc, the holding company (simply referred to as Interactive Reality from now on).
The advertiser acknowledges that he or she has read and agrees to the terms and conditions set out in this rate card, and in particular acknowledges that he or she has read and agrees to be bound by these general conditions.
The advertiser agrees that these general conditions constitute a valid contract with Interactive Reality and certifies that all information provided to Interactive Reality or any representative of the firm by the advertiser is true and correct.
While every care is exercised, Interactive Reality shall not be liable for errors in or the non-appearance of or the mis-positioning of any advertisement howsoever caused and whether as a result of any negligent or grossly negligent conduct or omission on the part of the owners, employees or contracted staff of Interactive Reality. Any such error, non-insertion, or the like shall not invalidate a contract, nor shall Interactive Reality become liable for any loss or damage including any consequential damage occasioned by such conduct or omission.
The positioning of advertisements shall be entirely at the discretion of Interactive Reality cc. but attempts will be made to position the advertisement optimally within the space available. Interactive Reality cc shall retain the sole discretion to cancel or suspend any order in the event of having to reduce or restrict the size of its publication for any reason, or in the event of the customer failing to make payment, or making late payment for previous advertisements. In the former instance, the advertiser will either be refunded his/her fee or an advert will be placed on an alternative day or page.
Verbal cancellation will not be valid; only a written cancellation confirmed by Interactive Reality will serve as notice of such cancellation.
Unless otherwise agreed to, all banner ads placed on the any of Interactive Reality’s websites will be exclusive. That is, the position will not be shared or rotated with other advertisers.
Interactive Reality reserves the right to alter, abbreviate or omit advertisements if they appear to be illegal, objectionable or defamatory for any reason whatsoever, and in this regard Interactive Reality’s decision shall be final and binding. Any such error, non-insertion, or the like shall not invalidate a contract, nor shall Interactive Reality become liable for any loss or damage including any consequential damage occasioned by such conduct or omission.
Interactive Reality also reserves the right to ask banner ads to be altered to conform to the overall standards and scheme of the applicable website. Should the advertiser refuse, then the advertiser may withdraw his or her banner ad with no penalty being applied.
Advertiser’s instructions must always be provided in writing (e-mail will suffice) and confirmed by Interactive Reality before the booking deadline.
Payment and proof of payment must be submitted before any advertising is placed. If an advertiser already has a banner advert on the website and wishes to extend their contract, proof of payment for the extension period must be provided as the advertising banner will be taken off the website until proof of payment has been submitted and acknowledged by Interactive Reality.
The advertiser will still be responsible for any costs incurred by Interactive Reality on instructions provided by the advertiser, even though the advertiser may ultimately cancel the advert.
Should any monies become outstanding, these monies shall bear interest at an interest rate of 2% per month and capitalised monthly.
Interactive Reality does not automatically renew existing advertiser’s contracts. The onus is on the existing advertiser to renew the contract.
Where an advertisement has not been inserted or inserted incorrectly, as a result of any error or omission by Interactive Reality, Interactive Reality shall at its sole discretion and without in any way admitting or incurring any liability whatsoever, be entitled to place (or replace with a corrected version) such advertisement on the website at a future date.
Interactive Reality reserves the right to refuse any advertisements for products and services that are in direct competition with its own products and services.
No concession, latitude or indulgence allowed by Interactive Reality to an advertiser shall be construed as a waiver or abandonment of its rights hereunder.
In the event that any of the conditions listed above are found to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable, such conditions will be severable from the remaining terms, which will continue to be valid and enforceable.
