Payment and Rate Protection

Payment in full is required to guarantee ad placement unless credit has been established with the PMA staff. Contract rates are available solely when the contract is paid in advance. Refunds will be issued, but the amount will be based on the contract price that would have prevailed. All contract rates are honored even if rates are increased during the term of the contract. All contracts must be based on the rates then in effect.
