Terms & Conditions


  1. Spotlight Cinema Advertising, its employees, agents and contractors (“SPOTLIGHT”) will take all reasonable steps to ensure that the Advertising to be screened (“Advertising”) on the screens specified in this agreement which play the SPOTLIGHT Advertising program (“SPOTLIGHT Program”) is in accordance with the Agreement entered into between SPOTLIGHT and the Client/Agency. However, the Client/Agency expressly acknowledges and accepts that booking or production errors may occur and SPOTLIGHT neither warrants nor represents that the Advertising will be without errors. The Client/Agency expressly agrees that SPOTLIGHT will not be required to correct any error in the Advertising until the commencement of the next Advertising period.

However, SPOTLIGHT will use its best endeavours to position the Advertising where requested by the Client/ Agency. Special placements are subject to space availability at the time of production.
  3. If SPOTLIGHT screens Advertising containing an error or fails to play Advertising at all, and for which payment has already been made to SPOTLIGHT, SPOTLIGHT will credit the Client/Agency an amount which, in the sole opinion of SPOTLIGHT, is reasonable given the nature and magnitude of the error. Such credit will not exceed the amount paid for the Advertising. SPOTLIGHT incurs no other liability whatsoever to the Client/Agency including liability for negligence or consequential loss.

    3. (c) pay any legal costs, (on a solicitor and own client basis) incurred by SPOTLIGHT as a result of the Client/Agency’s non payment.

  10. The Client/Agency acknowledges and agrees that a charge for Advertising with SPOTLIGHT will be made, whether used or not, if the booking is not cancelled at least three months prior to the date on which the Advertising is to commence in the manner set out in Clause 9.
