The Daily Tar Heel Advertising Policies


All advertisers working with The Daily Tar Heel must agree to the terms and conditions set forth below.

COVID-19 ADJUSTMENT TO POLICIES

Due to the unexpected nature of operations during the COVID-19 pandemic, the following policies have been set in place: 

1. All publication dates and deadlines are subject to change at any time. Notice will be provided as soon as possible. 

2. If a publication is cancelled or postponed, ads will be moved, adjusted or transferred to other platforms. 

ADVERTISING POLICIES

  1. Advertising orders and copy must be received by The Daily Tar Heel no later than 2 business days before the insertion date.
  2. Advertisements published containing errors shall be subject to an adjustment in rate based on benefit derived by the advertiser, as determined by The Daily Tar Heel's managing director of sales & strategy.
  3. The Daily Tar Heel reserves the right to reject advertising which it considers objectionable. Advertisements that discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, or sex will not be accepted. Advertisements containing false or misleading statements will be rejected. Advertisements for products, services or promotions that are illegal in the state of North Carolina will be rejected.
  4. The Daily Tar Heel does not guarantee ad position. Copy changes will not be honored after deadlines.
  5. Local display advertising of any kind cancelled after the deadline will be charged for the full cost of the space ordered. 
  6. Make-goods or credit adjustments will be made for any ad that runs or prints in error. It is the responsibility of the advertiser to notify The Daily Tar Heel of significant errors. The Daily Tar Heel is responsible for first run errors only. The limit of responsibility will be the total cost of the ad in which the error occurs. No allowance will be made for errors that do not materially affect the value of the advertisement as determined by The Daily Tar Heel.
