f. We do not guarantee listings and profile entries will not be split over pages or columns in our printed directories. The general pagination / layout for our printed products is as follows:
- Depending on where a category starts – some listings will always be placed first, and there after will be spread through out the category / region.
- Display adverts are generally positioned in or along-side the booked region and placed in order of ad size i.e. Double Page Spread, Full Page, Half Page and where applicable Quarter Page.
- Double Page Spread and Full Page customers can pay a premium to request to be the first advertisement within the region for that advertisement size where this is available.
- Where customers book the same ad size, seniority (i.e. year ad size first booked for the defined category/region) will determine the order. Where customers have the same seniority date, the sort criteria will be based on the name of the organisation or individual.
- Where customers increase, decrease or cancel an advertisement size, the customers seniority year is reset, as it relates specifically to the year the advertisement size is booked in a defined category.
- Article pages if purchased in conjunction with a display advert may result in the Article page being placed after the customers display advert. Where an Article page is solely purchased it will be placed at the end of the full display page advertisements.
- Commercial Run of Publication – Full and Half page display advertisements, where requested to be placed in a defined category/region, will be placed after the other applicable advertisements of the same size.
- Bound Inserts can be placed in the directory within print signatures. Clients can request an approximate position but no precise location can be guaranteed.
- No precise placement can be guaranteed for any advertisement and ultimately placement is at the discretion of Cervin Media.
