- Every advertiser and advertising agency ("you") who submits an order for advertising on a website or in an email operated by us, agrees to these terms and conditions. Your order and these Terms and Conditions form the basis of a contract between you and us for the provision of the advertising ordered by you.
- We will, subject to availability, technical limitations and these Terms and Conditions, use our reasonable endeavours to publish your advertisement in the format submitted by you and in accordance with your other instructions. The positioning or placement of your advertisement will be at our discretion unless we expressly agree otherwise in writing.
- We may, at our absolute discretion, refuse to publish any advertisement without giving any reason. No contract is formed between you and us until we accept your advertisement for publication and issue you with a valid tax invoice.

If we amend your advertisement, this will not reduce the price agreed for publication of the advertisement.
- We reserve the right to vary the placement or positioning of your advertisement and to change the format of your advertisement where we deem fit to do so.

Comments Policy (not currently applicable)
Mayne Report pre-moderates comments. We never censor comments based on political or ideological point of view. We only delete those comments that include the following transgressions:
- are abusive, off-topic, use excessive foul language
- include ad hominem attacks including comments that celebrate the death or illness of any person, public figure or otherwise
- contain racist, sexist, homophobic and other slurs
- are solicitations and/or advertising for personal blogs and website
- are posted with the explicit intention of provoking other commenters or the staff at Mayne Report.
Q: I posted a comment. Why can't I see it on the site?
A: There are two scenarios for which your comment may not appear:
- It may be pending approval. Comments on the blog are moderated before they appear on the site, and this takes time. There is often a delay between a comment being posted and it being approved. We appreciate your patience and ask that you refrain from posting the same comment repeatedly.
- Your comment violated the policy above. We pride ourselves in providing a medium for engaging and thought-provoking stories and encourage our users to speak their minds freely, provided comments fall within our commenting policy. We must respect our writers and protect them from vicious and inflammatory comments. They too are entitled to free speech- the right to share their opinions without being subject to scathing and mean-spirited remarks.
Q: Why am I blocked from commenting on Mayne Report?
A: There are a few scenarios in which a comment might be blocked:
- A comment is extremely abusive, off-topic, uses excessive foul language, or includes an ad hominem attack
- If a commenter has previously posted comments that are abusive, off-topic, used excessive foul language, or include ad hominem attacks, a Mayne Report moderator may decide to ban the commenter's IP address. This means the abusive commenter is banned from commenting on the site in the future, even if the later comments are not abusive. We may ban IPs because it may be too time consuming to individually delete comments written by someone with a pattern of abuse.
Q: Can I include HTML in my comments?
A: We remove all html from comments to preserve formatting consistency.
Q: If you don't allow any HTML, how can I include a link in my comment?
A: If you include a URL in your comment, it will be converted to a link. Please note, comments containing links to personal blogs and other inappropriate sites will be deleted. only links to relevant news stories or sites are acceptable.
