Contract Adjustments

For any advertisement or sponsorship agreement you’ll receive an insertion order which outlines the details and pricing of said agreement, and is considered a contract which binds the sale.  Conscious Company Media plans print and digital inventory and calendars around each of these contracts so adjustments can be difficult to accommodate. We certainly understand that things can change and sometimes adjustments need to be made. While the insertion order is a binding contract, we are willing to honor up to two adjustments to the initial due dates, and we will work with you to ensure you’re pleased with the product and receive the best customer service we can provide.

Should you have any questions regarding our terms and policies, please do not hesitate to contact your sales representative.
