Advertisers with ESCTV accept the following
This Agreement is entered into effect as of the dates outlined below between Edmonton Seniors Centre (“Broadcaster”) and the entity (“Advertiser”) contracting for the purchase of advertising. These terms and conditions shall apply to all advertising orders (the “Order”) agreed to between Broadcaster and Advertiser. These terms and conditions shall apply notwithstanding and regardless of any other conditions, amendments or other documents containing terms and conditions which may be provided by Advertiser, unless agreed to in writing by a representative of Broadcaster. The terms and conditions are as follows:
1 Joint and Several Liability: If Advertiser places the Order with Broadcaster by means of an agency (the “Agency”), the Agency represents, warrants and agrees that it is acting as an agent for the Advertiser for the purpose of this Agreement. Agency and Advertiser (collectively the “Advertiser Parties”) each acknowledge that Broadcaster has entered into this Agreement on the express condition that Agency is the duly appointed and authorized agent of Advertiser for all purposes related to this Agreement and on the credit of and promise to pay by both Advertiser and Agency and that, as such, the Advertiser Parties each acknowledge that they are jointly and severally liable and responsible for all obligations undertaken hereunder.
2 Payment: Advertiser shall pay all amounts as stated in the Order immediately upon receipt of invoice. Broadcaster reserves the right to withhold all advertising and other deliverables agreed to in the Order until the invoice has been paid in full. Any discrepancies must be noted in writing to Broadcaster no later than 10 days from receipt of invoice. If Advertiser disputes a portion of the invoice, Advertiser shall remit that portion of the invoice not in dispute in accordance with this Agreement, and acceptance by Broadcaster of such portion shall in no way be interpreted or construed as an acceptance of the Advertiser’s claim. Agency and Advertiser agree that Broadcaster may conduct credit inquiries on each of them to establish the creditworthiness of the parties or at any time if in the sole opinion of the Broadcaster it believes there are grounds for questioning the creditworthiness of any of them. The Advertiser and Agency authorize any third party to convey any information of a financial matter about either of them to the Broadcaster at its request. In the event Broadcaster is not satisfied with the creditworthiness of the Advertiser and/or Agency, in its sole discretion, or where it has other reasonable grounds for doing so, Broadcaster shall have the absolute right to change the requirements as to terms of payment for further services delivered under this Agreement. Unless otherwise indicated in the Order, all dollar amounts shown are stated and payable in Canadian dollars.
3 Term and Termination: This Agreement will continue until the final date set out in the Order. Unless otherwise stated in the Order, this Agreement will not automatically renew. Except as expressly set out herein or in the Order, this Agreement is non-cancelable. Advertiser may cancel advertising on 14 days prior written notice, except as otherwise described in the Order. Upon prior written notice to the other, this Agreement may be terminated by the non-defaulting party, if the other: (i) materially breaches any provision of this Agreement; (ii) becomes the subject of any bankruptcy, insolvency or the Broadcaster, acting reasonably, believes that Advertiser or Agency is unable to meet its financial obligations as they become due. If Broadcaster terminates this Agreement due to an Advertising Party default, Broadcaster shall be entitled to recover as liquidated damages the total of all amounts due and to become due under this Agreement to the expiration of the term of this Agreement including, without limitation, all non-cancelable costs of Broadcaster.
4 Disruption, Pre-Emption and Substitution: Broadcaster shall not be liable (directly or indirectly) for any damages, losses, costs or expenses suffered by Advertiser as a result of substitution, interruption, postponement or inability or omission to broadcast any advertising by reason of (a) technical or mechanical difficulties, public emergency or necessity, legal restriction, strike or labour action, terrorism, (b) failure of any third party transmission (c) regulations, directions, orders, or other requirements of any federal, provincial, municipal authority or any applicable regulatory bodies, including the CRTC (d) a modification to the advertisement or other creative, at the sole discretion of Broadcaster, is required in the public interest or whether required to comply with any law, by-law, directive or other restriction on the Broadcaster (e) pre-emption of any advertisement or broadcast program for a program of public significance or in the public interest or (f) any Act of God or other circumstances beyond Broadcaster’s control.

In no event shall Broadcaster be liable for any consequential, incidental, indirect, special or punitive damages, whether arising in contract, tort or otherwise.

Advertiser shall deliver production-ready commercial advertisement, feature or creative (including required changes) and all pertinent instructions to Broadcaster in accordance with Broadcaster’s technical requirements. If Advertiser fails to comply, then Broadcaster reserves the right to re-sell the scheduled air time and to invoice Advertiser for the full amount due. Nothing contained in this Agreement shall be interpreted or construed to make Broadcaster liable or responsible for costs of the production of any commercial advertisement.
8 Warranties: Advertiser Parties warrant, represent and covenant that: (i) Advertiser Parties have the full right and power to offer the commercial advertisement for broadcast by Broadcaster and to enter into this agreement; (ii) the commercial advertisement does not contain any defamatory, libelous or slanderous material and will not violate any individual rights, including rights of privacy, publicity or personality of any person; (iii) Advertiser Parties have obtained all consents, releases, waivers and rights (including intellectual property rights) necessary for the unfettered use of such creative on all applicable media platforms, (iv) Advertiser Parties have obtained all necessary clearances, including without limitation, CRTC, Advertising Standards Canada and Telecaster Committee of Canada or any other approved clearance agency, (v) Advertiser Parties have paid all residual, re-use or similar payments, step-up fees, music synchronization, mechanical reproduction and music performance rights and license payments and other amounts payable to third parties that arise as a result of, or with respect to, the broadcast of such creative and (vi) the creative is compliant with all applicable laws.
