Clients are granted a annual agreement discount based on the entire net volume for the agreement period. Media agency discounts on gross prices may be granted to media agencies that have made an agreement with Kärkimedia.

If the Client’s Material is submitted late, Kärkimedia will not be required to fulfil the display guarantee.
All Material must be submitted in accordance with the medium-specific schedules and instructions for submitting materials.
If the Material is not submitted or prepared in line with the instructions, if it is delayed or if it is technically unsuitable or questionable in terms of content, the Publisher will not guarantee that the advertisement will be published or that the campaign will begin at the desired time. In such cases, the visibility of the campaign will be reduced proportionately to the length of the delay.
If the Publisher does not have access to the Material at the time required by the schedule but nevertheless decides to publish the advertisement, the Publisher will not be liable for any deficiencies in the appearance of the advertisement. In such cases, the Publisher is also entitled to place the advertisement in a space different from what was agreed.
The Publisher will not be liable for any damage arising from the decision not to publish an erroneous advertisement or from the publication of the advertisement on a date other than the agreed publication date due to deficient Material.
The Publisher cannot guarantee that a report can be generated for an online campaign if the Material is submitted late or if deficient Material is submitted.
In above described cases, the full price (100%) will be invoiced even if the visibility of the advertisement or campaign is limited, its appearance is deficient or it is placed in a space different from what was agreed. An additional fee for expedited processing will be charged if the Material is submitted after the time limit specified for materials. In addition, any cost of adjustment concerning the Material will be charged. If the Publisher needs to make changes or corrections to the Material submitted, the work will be charged at an hourly rate in accordance with the medium-specific price list.
If the Material causes technical problems during an online campaign in a Medium, the Publisher has the right to replace the Material with a GIF version or completely remove it from the Medium or Media.
Competing advertisements in Media
The Publisher is entitled to place advertisements by competing companies in the same section of the Medium without prior announcement.

Clients will not be refunded for any overlapping campaigns.
These terms and conditions will be valid until further notice.
