Introduction

The purpose of this agreement is to state the terms & conditions for the benefit of both parties between you (the Client) and I Love MCR (the Company)

Agreement Summary

This document confirms terms and conditions for both online advertising and out-of-home media advertising with I Love MCR for which payment must be made via either monthly instalments or flat price plus VAT.

Operative Provisions

  1. The terms and conditions of business annexed hereto (“the Terms and Conditions”) shall form part of this Agreement, and the terms defined herein shall bear the same meaning in the Terms and Conditions.
  2. The Client hereby appoints I Love MCR as a digital marketing and advertising consultant to carry out and deliver the assets within the advertising campaign specified in the appendix hereto (“the Campaign”). The Company hereby agrees to act in that capacity and carry out the Campaign, subject to this Agreement’s terms and conditions.
  3. In consideration of the obligations undertaken by I Love MCR hereunder, the Client shall pay the Company the fees in the amount set out in the Schedule, such fees to be paid in full or where agreed with the Company by direct debit in equal monthly instalments in advance (“the Fees”). The Fees shall be reviewed at the end of the period set out in the Schedule. After this point, the then-current Fee shall continue until a new Fee is agreed or this Agreement is terminated.
  4. This Agreement shall commence on the date set out in the Schedule and, subject as set out in the Terms and Conditions, shall continue in force for the initial period set out in the Schedule and thereafter unless or until terminated by either party giving to the other notice. Any such notice must be in writing, must expire not less than 30 days after the date it is received by the Company, and in any event will only be valid if it is to expire at, or at any time after, the end of the initial period.

Service Level Agreement (SLA)

  • I Love MCR will only advertise what the Company endorse or has benefit to the community. The Company will not endorse gambling nor anything of a political or religious nature.
  • I Love MCR reviews are always impartial, regardless of any commercial commitment, and will not be bribed by money or payment in kind.
  • Paid for posts are clearly marked ‘Sponsored’ to meet ASA (Advertising Standards Agency) guidelines.
  • Advertising requires a minimum three-month commitment to guarantee optimum exposure. The Client accepts that any shorter campaigns entered into with the Company are done so under ad-hoc circumstances, and may not reach the desired target audience.
  • Statistic reports will be presented every quarter or by request. No less than 30 days notice is required.
  • Advertising Campaign assets are the responsibility of the Client. If an asset is not received despite a reminder, the Company will NOT be held responsible for lack of activity. Additionally, the asset will not roll over to another period unless expressly agreed in writing.
  • Assets included within package deals hold no cash value and all advertising campaigns are non-refundable.

Fees

  • The listed fees are exclusive of VAT and are based on management, executive and administrative time in the delivery of the Programme.
  • The listed Fees cover all executive, administration and secretarial time provided by the Company in the Campaign’s execution.
  • Additional advertising work, including utilisation of additional advertising assets specifically requested by the client, which falls outside the remit of the agreed Campaign (e.g. photography, video, or graphic design requests), will also be subject to additional fees. Any such additional work will be pre-negotiated with the Client before work being undertaken by I Love MCR.

Payment Terms

  • Fees will be invoiced upon receipt of booking or confirmation for any Advertising campaign and must be paid in full before the agreed campaign commences (unless different credit or payment terms are expressly agreed in writing).
  • Campaigns can commence (or “go live”) on receipt or payment remittance.
  • Upon signing of the contract, you agree to Campaign planning and asset scheduling to commence and are committed to honouring payment of the agreed marketing campaign. 
  • Once campaign planning has begun, no payments are eligible to be refunded.
  • If monthly instalments are accepted as a method of payment for a campaign by the Company, after the initially agreed campaign, the client may be automatically put on a rolling monthly retainer, regardless of agreed duration, unless we receive 30 days notice of cancellation in writing.

  • I Love MCR shall submit to the Client draft content for specific approval where required, including:
    • Draft copywriting/advertorials
    • Draft E-Shot designs including artwork and copy
  • The Client’s approval may has to be in writing. I Love MCR will accept written approval by the Client of any matter as authorisation to proceed to publication.
