Advertising Standard Terms

Kent Law Society - Advertising Standard Terms

1. Application of Standard Terms:

1.1. These terms and conditions ('Standard Terms') govern all requests by the advertiser ('Advertiser') for the placement of advertisements with Kent Law Society (?KLS?) for publication on the KLS Website. These terms may also be applied in respect of the placing of advertising on  KLS Social Media when the same may be  made available to advertisers.

1.4  KLS shall not be deemed to have accepted an request, or become contractually bound to publish, until it has acknowledged to the Advertiser by email that the wording is agreed and that payment has been received in accordance with these Standard Terms, at which point such acceptance shall form a legally binding agreement between the Advertiser and KLS ('Agreement'). A separate Agreement shall arise in respect of each request  which is accepted by KLS.

1.5. If there is an inconsistency between any of the provisions of these Standard Terms and the provisions of the offer, the provisions of these Standard Terms shall prevail.
