General T’s and C’s

Schedule of Terms & Conditions

These Terms and Conditions together with the Deal Memorandum defined below are legally binding and contain the agreement between the Buyer and RTÉ relating to the purchase of Advertisements.

These Terms and Conditions apply to the purchase of all Advertisements on or after 1st January 2009.

A booking by a Buyer to insert an Advertisement together with the Buyer’s confirmation (whether verbally, in writing, electronically or otherwise) in respect of such insertion will constitute the Buyer’s acceptance of, and agreement to be bound by, these Terms and Conditions and the Deal Memorandum irrespective of whether or not the Deal Memorandum is signed by the Buyer.

These Terms and Conditions and the Deal Memorandum may only be amended to the extent agreed in writing by RTÉ. In the event of any conflict between these Terms and Conditions and the Deal Memorandum, the Deal Memorandum will prevail.

Alcohol Advertising and Retailers – Special Note

With effect from February 1st 2012 any supermarket advertiser whose copy receives a Full Alcohol restriction from RTÉ copy clearance, will automatically lose 5 points of discount from their deal discount.

Advertisements are considered Full Alcohol unless a majority of the products being promoted are non-alcohol. For example, a retail advertisement which includes offers on three products can only be regarded as a part -alcohol advertisement if two of the products are non alcoholic. A four product promotion would require that three of the products are non alcoholic in order to avoid additional time and station restrictions applicable to branded alcohol advertising.

It is important to note that in addition to the number of different products being promoted if there is excessive emphasis on the alcohol element or a disproportionate amount of alcohol featuring within the advertisement then full alcohol restrictions would apply.

Full alcohol restrictions are the same restrictions that apply to a branded alcohol advertisement.
