GENERAL ADVERTISING COPY & CONTRACT POLICIES
Wochen-Post rates are structured to allow heavy discounts
for advertisers who run every week since maintaining
a regular presence before the buying audience provides
maximum ad response.
Frequency discount rates are most heavily discounted,
for advertisers able to commit to consecutive insertions
Ads are charged based on the frequency for which the
advertiser has contracted, from one to 52 weeks.
Once and twice per month contracts offer maximum flexibility
and still insure a discount from the base rate. Ads
run less than 6 times are charged at the base or onetime
Price is determined by the Real number of inches
run in a given issue, which may not fall below 2 inches.
Ads not fitting one of our standard sizes are charged
for the number of column inches purchased.

will be rebilled at the rate reflective d the ads
The N.A. Wochen-Post reserves the right to revise
its advertising rates at any time. Announcement of
an increase shall be made 30 days in advance to contract
advertisers. Advertising contracts protect only the
frequency discount level for the advertiser, not the
price. All space is billed by the rate card in effect
at time of insertion.

Visa, MasterCard or Discover. Foreign customers may
pay directly into our German bank account upon request.

the right to revise, reject or omit any advertisements
at any time.
Errors do happen. It is standard newspaper policy
to grant credit only if an error obviously and materially
affects the drawing power of the ad. This is also
the policy of the N.A. Wochen-Post. Full credits are
rare, and in no case can our liability exceed the
cost of the space actually occupied. All credits will
be applied toward the next advertisement placed.
No refunds will be made. Should an advertisement fail
to appear in the publication as specified in contracted
agreement due to the fault of the publisher, the N.A.
Wochen‑Post will publish the ad in the next
consecutive issue. No other restitution is implied
