The Publisher shall not be liable for any errors or omissions in the Advertisement unless the proof is returned in reasonable time for corrections to be made before the date on which the relevant publication is finalised (which, for, the avoidance of doubt, shall not be less than seven (7) days prior to such date).2.9 Complaints regarding the reproduction of Advertisements must be received by the Publisher in writing within seven (7) days of the date of publication.2.10 For the avoidance of doubt, the Advertiser shall bear all of the costs in respect of producing and delivery of the Copy to the Publisher.
