capital projects services cover the full spectrum, from new builds and complete renovations to strategic partial renovations and cost-effective, timely completion of franchise quality requirements. The company’s first two properties, the Grace Inn, in Phoenix’s Ahwatukee Foothills and Prescott Resort Conference Center & Casino, located 90 miles Northwest of Phoenix, are privately owned and family operated. Meanwhile, the decade-old hospitality division has continued to expand inside Arizona—with the Junipine Resort on the banks of Oak Creek in Sedona, the Inn at Eagle Mountain in Scottsdale/ Fountain Hills and a hotel under development in Tucson—as well as farther afield: The Captain Bartlett Inn in Fairbanks, Alaska; the Playa Inn in the Phoenix “suburb” of Rocky Point, Mexico, and Lakeside Casino and Resort in West Lake in Osceola, Iowa, which represents the entertainment division’s expansion into the Midwest. Grace Hospitality professes to be focused on its vision: “To be recognized by our customers as the best in our business.” Judging by the results, customers on every level believe they’re on target—confirmed by the independent view of Arthur Andersen, which rates the W.M. Grace Company as the 35th best privately owned company in Arizona.

CONTRACT CONDITIONS Submission of any print advertising constitutes acceptance of the following Terms and Conditions: Terms of Payment. All work performed is payable in full 30 days from the date of invoice. First-time advertisers, or those without approved credit, must prepay 100% of ad insertion by the Advertising Space Deadline. Interest accrues on all past-due accounts at the rate of 1.5% per month or as allowed under applicable law, whichever is greater. In the event an Advertiser fails to promptly pay any amount due, all amounts remaining to be paid hereunder for the advertising shall become due and payable, together with interest, at the rate of 18% per annum. Interest will begin accruing 30 days after the date of invoice. If collection efforts become necessary to enforce payment terms, Advertiser agrees to pay all collection costs, attorneys’ fees, investigator’s charges, long-distance telephone charges, travel, and lodging. The Publisher reserves the right to require payment in advance of publications for all or part of the charges for the advertising for any issue. Ad Deadline Terms. Ads must be RECEIVED by Publisher no later than the applicable Ad Materials Closing date. Otherwise Publisher, in its sole discretion and without liability, may refuse to run a submitted ad and may cancel the applicable contract. Ads requiring composition or mechanical work must be received by production department at least 10 business days before Ad Materials Closing date. When change of copy, art or entirely new ad is not received by Ad Materials Closing date, ad run in previous issue will be printed without need for prior approval. Conversion to Publisher’s requirements will be billed at production costs outlined in most current media kit. Advertisements not received by advertising production department by Ad Materials Closing date are not entitled to the privilege of review or revision by the Advertiser or its Agency. Agency Commissions The Publisher agrees to a 15% commission of gross billings on sales of space or special position to recognized Advertising Agencies provided that Publisher receives payment within the terms of the sale. If Publisher does not receive payment within those terms, agency commissions will be forfeited. Commission is not allowed on billings for artwork, plate repairs, reprints, mechanical, or production and special handling charges. Rate Changes The Publisher reserves the right to change rates upon 60-day written notice. Any contracts may be cancelled at the time a change rate becomes effective without incurring a short-rate adjustment, provided the contract rate has been earned up to the date of cancellation. Deadline for Change or Cancellation by Advertiser or Agency. Any request to change ad insertion or cancel an ad must be written and signed by Advertiser or Agency and RECEIVED by Publisher at least 30 days prior to the applicable Advertising Space Deadline. Otherwise Publisher, in its sole discretion and without liability, may refuse to change or cancel the ad, in which case Advertiser and Agency shall nevertheless be responsible for full payment of net cost and for performing all terms and conditions of the applicable contract. Upon cancellation, Advertiser is responsible for 25% of total remaining insertions. Payment is due upon cancellation. Publisher’s Discretion. Publisher may, at any time and without liability: (a) Cancel or reject any ad, even if previously accepted by Publisher, if Publisher, in its sole discretion, considers its form or content to be misleading, in bad taste, adverse to public interest, in violation of applicable law, or otherwise inappropriate for the character of the publication in which it is to be displayed; (b) Place the word “advertisement” with any ad copy, which, in Publisher’s sole discretion, resembles editorial material; (c) In its sole discretion, determine ad location and/or position in the publication, if, after using best efforts, Publisher cannot place ad in exact location/position specified in the applicable contract; (d) Refuse to publish future ads, if Advertiser or Agency has failed to pay an advertising account when due, has paid with a bounced check or other uncollectible funds, or has otherwise breached the terms and conditions of any ad contract or other agreement with Publisher. Loss of Earned Frequency Discounts. Cancellation of an ad by Advertiser or Agency for any reason or by Publisher for any of the reasons set forth in these Terms and Conditions may result in an adjustment and resulting increase in the ad fee rate charged hereunder, based on the actual frequency discount rate earned rather than the greater frequency discount rate billed under the applicable ad contract. Excused Performance. Publisher shall not be liable to Advertiser or Agency for any delays in the production or distribution of the publication in which an ad is to be displayed, if caused in whole or part by acts of God, governmental or quasi-governmental entities, fires, floods, labor or material shortages, transportation interruption of any kind, systems or other technological failures affecting Publisher, or any other event beyond its reasonable control. Collection and Litigation Costs. Advertiser and Agency shall be jointly and severally liable to Publisher for any and all costs incurred by Publisher in attempting to collect past-due ad fees and production charges, including without limitation contingency fees paid collection agencies and/or attorneys, reasonable attorney fees, court costs and other litigation expenses. Warranty and Indemnification. Advertiser and Agency warrant and represent (a) that any ad submitted does not violate applicable law, including the civil and property rights of any third party, and (b) that Advertiser and Agency are authorized to publish same. Advertiser and Agency agree to jointly and severally indemnify, hold harmless and defend at their sole cost Publisher from any liability, loss or expense (including court costs and attorneys’ fees), arising out of any breach of the aforementioned warranties and representations, including but not limited to any third-party claim or lawsuit for libel, plagiarism, copyright or trademark infringement, invasion of privacy or any other claim based on the content and/or form of the advertisement. Applicable Law and Venue. By placing advertising with Publisher, Advertiser and Agency agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions, which shall be governed and interpreted solely in accordance with the substantive law of the State of Arizona (without regard to that State’s conflict of laws) and the Federal laws of the United States (if applicable). Advertiser and Agency further agree that any dispute or claim concerning advertising submitted hereunder shall be exclusively litigated in a court having competent jurisdiction in Phoenix, Arizona, which Advertiser and Agency agree shall have personal jurisdiction over them. Entire Agreement. The person signing this document warrants that (s)he is authorized to sign it. These Terms and Conditions replace and supersede any prior agreements, understandings, or representations (oral or written) made by or between the parties and concerning this subject matter. These Terms and Conditions may not be amended or waived except in writing signed by both Publisher and Advertiser or Agency.
