1. The following General Terms and Conditions govern all business relations between the Client and the Publisher with regard to the acceptance and publication of advertising orders. These General Terms and Conditions shall apply exclusively, even in the event of deviating terms and conditions of the client.

  2. A contract is only concluded by the written order confirmation of the Publisher. The publisher guarantees the best possible reproduction of the advertising medium in terms of time and location.

  3. The Publisher is entitled to reject advertising orders as well as individual call-offs within the framework of a contract on the grounds of content, origin or technical form at its due discretion. Orders for inserts and bound-in inserts shall only become binding for the Publisher after submission of an original sample and with the Publisher’s written confirmation to the Client.

  4. The client is responsible for the timely delivery of the advertising material or the data required for publication in the specification given by the publisher and to the recipients named by the publisher. The specification for the advertising media and the acceptance deadlines result from the media data and, if applicable, additional information which the Publisher makes available to the Client in good time. The costs for drafts, the creation or significant changes of advertising material for the client do not belong to the services of the Publisher.

  5. Proofs will only be supplied on express request. The client is responsible for the accuracy of the returned proofs. If the client does not return the proof sent to him in good time by the printing data deadline, approval for printing shall be deemed to have been granted.

  6. If an Advertising Medium is reproduced incorrectly by the Publisher despite the timely delivery of flawless artwork by the Client, the Client shall be entitled to compensation if the Publisher is responsible for the error. Compensation shall be based on the extent to which the purpose of the advertising medium was impaired. It is excluded if it is associated with disproportionate costs for the Publisher. If a replacement is not possible, the client may withdraw from the contract or claim an appropriate reduction in payment.

  7. Data from the client’s advertising material will be retained by the publisher for a maximum of 12 months after publication.

  8. Invoices are to be paid within the period shown in the price list, starting from receipt of the invoice, unless a different payment period or advance payment has been agreed in individual cases.

  9. In the event of default or deferment of payment, interest and collection costs will be charged. In the event of late payment, the Publisher may suspend further execution of the current order until payment has been made and demand advance payment for the remaining publications. In the event of the opening of insolvency proceedings against the Client, the total amount for the publications still to be accepted shall become due immediately, without any obligation on the part of the Publisher to publish subsequently.

  10. If the order cannot be executed due to force majeure or for other reasons for which the publisher is not responsible, or if interruptions in publication occur for the same reasons, the publisher is entitled to postpone the order or to withdraw from the remainder of the order without incurring any claim to compensation.

  11. The Publisher collects, processes and uses personal data of the Customer within the scope of the business relationship. The data processing is carried out in accordance with the European Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). For further information on data processing and data protection, please refer to our data protection declaration: https://www.bbr.news/datenschutzerklaerung.

  12. Ausschließlicher Gerichtsstand und Erfüllungsort, auch für im Zusammenhang mit dem Auftrag gegebene Wechsel und Schecks, ist gegenüber Vollkaufleuten der Sitz des Publishers.
