GOLF TIME is a very strong partner on the event side: With our own SAMSONITE Golf Club Tour (www.golftime-clubtour.com) played in Golf Clubs in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, over 400 tournaments staged in over 130 partner clubs - despite Corona. The CALEDONIA Deut- sche Puttliga by VICE GOLF (www.deutsche- puttliga.de) on the other hand was forced to take a break. In fact the actual reach was way higher due to the season long promotion within the partner clubs with posters, starter lists as well as the publication of the results on the various club homepages. GOLF TIME tours, established in 2014, is alrea- dy a success story of its own. With our Full-Ser- vice Golf Travel Operator on the German spoken market (www.golftimetours.com) our experi- enced tour operator team fullfills the demands of Golfers in regard to all their national and international Golf travel wishes.
TERMS & CONDITIONS
§ 1. In the following General Terms and Conditions, “advertisement order” is defined as a contract between the publishing company and the ordering party to print one or more advertisements or inserts (generally called “ads” in the following) from a commercial advertiser or other (called “adverti- ser” or “customer” in the following) in G.O.L.F.-TIME for the purpose of distribution. These General Terms are element of the contract concluded between the publishing company and the ordering party, as well as the ad price list in its current version. In case of telephonically placed or altered orders, the publishing company denies liability for the correctness of reproduction. § 2. If a contract includes the right to request publication of individual ads, the order must be completed within one year after the appearan- ce of the first ad, provided that the first ad is requested and published within one year after the completi- on of the contract. § 3. Reductions in prices for adver- tisers described in the ad price list are granted only on ads appearing in the publication within one year. The term begins with the initial publication of the first ad. § 4. The advertiser is entitled to a
respective discount on ads – based on the orders placed within the term of one year – if his/her contract was concluded at the be- ginning of the term and contained an of agreement entitling him/her to discount. The advertiser ’s enti- tlement to a backdated payment shall be void if the advertiser does not enforce entitlement within three months after conclusion of the year. § 5. If an order cannot be com- pleted for reasons for which the publisher is not responsible, the ordering party must reimburse the publisher – notwithstanding any further legal obligations – with the difference between the discount that was granted and the discount in respect of the orders actually placed. This reimbursement lapses if the non-conclusion of contract is due to force majeure or circumstances beyond the control of the publisher, or if the principal, in the case of an increase in prices, is not subject to a later right to claim rescission of contract, but the contract is cont- inued at the new prices until the originally agreed order value has been reached. The publisher shall not be liable for any failure to complete an order or compensate damages if this failure is due to force majeure. In particu- lar, no compensation for damages
can be claimed for unpublished ads or for ads that were not published on time. The publisher is not liable if he is misled or deceived. If any deficiencies in the print documents are not immediately recognisable, and are first noticed during printing, if the print copy proves unsatisfactory, the advertiser is not liable to claims. The obligation to preserve print documents ends three months after publication of the respective ad- vertisement, provided no contrary agreement has been made. In cases of plant interruption or force majeure, such as strikes, ar- rest and the like, the publisher shall claim full payment for published advertisements if 50% of the guaranteed order has been com- pleted. § 6. No guarantee is issued for the placement of ads in particular editi- on numbers, particular editions or in particular places with-in the pu- blication, unless the ordering party has explicitly made this subject of the validity of the order. § 7. Advertisements which are not distinguishable as advertisements due to their editorial design will be made clearly recognisable as such by the publisher. § 8. The publisher reserves all
rights to decline to publish adverts and supplements and also individual inserts at its discretion within the terms of an agreement for reasons of content, origin or its technical form, according to the publisher ’s uniform principles. This also applies to orders placed at branch office counters, reception desks or with sales representatives. Supplement orders are only bin- ding after submission and accep- tance of a sample or insert. Supple- ments will not be accepted which, because of format or design, give the reader the impression that the supplement is part of the newspa- per or magazine or which contain third-party advertisements. If an order is not accepted, the principal will be informed imme- diately. § 9. The ordering party is solely responsible for the on time delivery of the advertisement copy and faultlessness of print documents or supplements. The publisher will request immedi- ate replacements of any print docu- ments that are clearly unsuitable or damaged. The publisher guarantees custo- mary faultlessness of printed reproduction of the advertisement according to the quality of the advertisement copy delivered.
TERMS & CONDITIONS (Continued)
§ 10. The ordering party is entitled to a reduction in costs or a substi- tute advert for wholly or partially unreadable or inaccurate printing of the advertisement only in so far as the purpose of the advertisement is affected. Further liability of the publisher is excluded. Missing or in- accurately printed control details do not entitle the ordering party to any claims, provided no contrary agree- ment has been formed. Complaints must be filed within four weeks of receiving invoice and receipt. § 11. Test prints are only supplied only on explicit demand. The ordering party is responsible for the accuracy of the test print that is returned. If the ordering party does not return the test print sent to him on time within deadline, clearance of print shall be assumed. § 12. Once the invoice has been received, it is to be paid according to the terms described in the price list, unless a shorter term of payment or pre-payment has been agreed upon. Any discounts for advance payment will be made according to the price list. For invoices with an invoicing address outside Germany, no VAT will be added provided that tax ex- emption is accepted. The publisher reserves his right of subsequent billing of VAT in case the financial management affirms tax liability of the ad. The publishers reserves his right to claim prepayment of 75% of
the invoice amount two weeks prior to the advertising deadline in case of advertising contracts with adverti- sers outside of Germany. In case of non-payment, the publisher can decline the contract. § 13. In case of delay or deferral of payment, interest will be paid at the rate of 5% above the valid discount rate of the central issuing bank of Germany, as well as collection costs. If delay of payment continues, the publisher is entitled to postpone carrying out the current order and demand advance payment for the remaining advertisements. For cases of bankruptcy and legal bankrupt- cy settlements, discount is not applicable. If there is good reason, the publisher is entitled to make the publication of further advertise- ments dependent on the settlement of open invoice amounts, even if this occurs during the term of an adver- tisement agreement. Furthermore, the ordering party is not entitled to make any claims against the publis- her in this affair. § 14. If requested, the publisher will supply a copy of the ad. If the type and volume of the ad order justify, up to two copies or complete edition numbers will be supplied. If it is no longer possible to supply a copy, a legally-binding certificate from the publisher acts as substitute. § 15. The costs for considerable
changes to the originally agreed quality and delivery of the ordered prints, stencils and drawings are to be paid by the ordering party. § 16. A drop in circulation can only affect the contractual relationship if a number of copies per issue has been guaranteed and if this number drops by 50%. The publisher is free to select its distribution channels; these are not guaranteed. In additi- on, claims for reduction in price or for damages cannot be made if the publisher has informed the ordering party in advance of drops in circu- lation, giving the ordering party the opportunity to withdraw the advert before publication. § 17. Place of fulfillment and juris- diction for both parties is the legal domicile of the publisher. German law is applicable. In case any of the General Terms prove illegal or void, this does not effect the validity of the remaining terms. The parties shall replace the void term with one regarding the purpose of the contract.
