Terms and conditions related to use of our recruitment services:
- The site is for posting bona fide job openings at accredited institutions of higher education and other legitimate employers. The content of a job listing or any other employer-supplied information is the responsibility of the submitting party, not of Inside Higher Ed.
- Only the posting of a listing (or other information submitted by an employer) constitutes our acceptance of the listing for publication. We offer no remedies for failure to post a job listing or other information submitted by an employer, except the option to post the listing. Inside Higher Ed shall not be liable to the advertiser for any technical malfunction, computer error or loss of data or other injury, damage or disruption to advertisements or websites or the service.
- There will be a $50.00 charge for any check not honored by our bank. Inside Higher Ed reserves the right to withhold further advertising pending receipt of replacement funds.
- Prepaid posting contracts must be paid in full by the payment date on your invoice. If Inside Higher Ed has not received payment by the payment date, we reserve the right to suspend unlimited posting privileges and other contract holder benefits.
- Inside Higher Ed reserves the right to reject any advertisement for any reason. Advertisers will be notified when this occurs.
- All single job postings must be prepaid with a credit card at the time of posting except where a specific contract is in place. In the case where an employer has an unlimited recruiting contract with Inside Higher Ed, that contract supercedes our prepayment requirement. Inside Higher Ed's posting of a single job listing does not imply a contract with an employer.
- Inside Higher Ed reserves the right to pursue all of its legal remedies, including but not limited to deletion of your postings from the Inside Higher Ed website and immediate termination of your registration with or ability to access the Inside Higher Ed website and/or any other service provided to you by Inside Higher Ed, upon any breach by you of these terms and conditions.
Terms and conditions related to the placement of display advertising (on the site and in our e-mail products):
- Inside Higher Ed reserves the right to reject any advertisement for any reason. Advertisers will be notified when this occurs.
- The advertiser assumes liability for all content (including text representation, illustrations, updates and links to other internet content) of advertisements published and also assumes responsibility for any claims arising from there made against Inside Higher Ed, including all costs associated with defending any such claim.
- All advertising copy that may be mistaken by a reader as news, feature or other non-advertising materials must be clearly marked "Advertisement."
- On advertising where credit is allowed by Inside Higher Ed, monthly accounts are due within 30 days from the invoice date. If any credit card transaction is not approved for any reason, such account shall be deemed delinquent. When any part of an account for advertising becomes delinquent, then the entire amount owed shall become due and payable, and Inside Higher Ed may refuse to publish any advertising.
- First time advertisers are required to pay in advance for their first insertion. Political advertising must be prepaid and identified as paid for by the authorizing political campaign organization.
- Inside Higher Ed reserves the right to charge a short rate fee to any advertiser who cancels a contract that included discounts without fulfilling the contract. Upon customer cancellation of a signed contract, a short rate charge will be assessed and invoiced. This charge is not a penalty; it is equal to the amount of any discount that was included and that no longer applies because the contract was not completed.
- There will be a $50.00 charge for any check not honored by the bank. Inside Higher Ed reserves the right to withhold further advertising pending receipt of replacement funds.
- Cancellations for advertising in any e-mail product (Daily News Update, Weekly News Update, monthly newsletters) must be received in writing at least 30 days in advance of material due date. Cancellations for run-of-site banner advertising must be received in writing at least 14 days in advance of material due date.
- All rates are subject to change; however once a contract is signed, the rates on the contract will be honored for all advertising included on the contract.
