Advertising Terms

The listing of terms below are for general information only. The terms included in your signed insertion order are the legal terms governing the advertising agreement. 

Ad Copy:

Ad copy is due 2 weeks before each ad runs. Should ad copy not be received 2 weeks before the ad runs, it is at our discretion as to whether the ad will run as scheduled. NO REFUNDS OR COMPS WILL BE PROVIDED IF AD COPY IS NOT RECEIVED BY THE DUE DATE. Ad copy for all newsletter insertions and dedicated emails must be submitted as ready to copy and paste code in HTML format in an .txt or .html file. Ad copy cannot be accepted in Word (.doc/.docx) documents or in the body of an email. Graphics should either be hosted on the advertiser’s server or, in the case of website banner ads and regular newsletter sponsorships, emailed as an attachment to us.

Standard Payment Terms:

The Advertiser commits to pay to us the total prices listed in the linked insertion order by the due date(s) of the associated invoice(s).

Should we have to collect the balance due after the invoice due date, the balance will be increased by the amount of any discounts that may have originally been offered on the invoice. When the signed insertion order is received by us, we reserve the ad spots detailed on it for you, making them unavailable for other advertisers who may wish to purchase them. Should your payment be returned to us for insufficient funds, a fee will be added to your balance for each insufficient funds return. Unpaid balances for the ads detailed in the insertion order may be referred to a collections agency. Should this be necessary, you agree to pay any and all collection fees and court costs in addition to the balance due and any fees for returned checks.

Intellectual Property:

By placing an ad with us, you represent, warrants and covenants that (a) your ad copy and/or images submitted in conjunction with any ad spots purchased from uso not infringe upon any third party’s intellectual property rights, specifically including but not limited to, United States or foreign trademarks, patents, copyrights, rights of publicity, moral rights, music performance or other music-related rights, or any other third-party right, (b) the copy and/or graphics submitted by you do not and will not contain any content which violates any applicable law or regulation, and (c) you have all necessary rights and authority to enter into the agreement and place advertising on the websites and/or newsletters identified in the insertion order.

Ad Content:

In order to maintain the reputation its publications have earned in the homeschool market, we maintain advertising standards for all advertisements included in our publications. We must approve all ad copy and resources. Should an advertiser with an ongoing ad campaign wish to change ad copy during the campaign, Homeschool Ad Network must approve the new copy and resource being advertised. We reserve the right to refuse any ad for any reason.


Website and Newsletter Statistics:

Newsletter subscribership, website traffic, and impressions are not guaranteed but are based on website statistics and have been historically reliable.

We may make use of content delivery network services, browser and server caching, and other technologies designed to deliver content at optimum speeds. Due to these technologies being employed, HSAN does not offer tracking for website ads. Advertisers wanting such tracking should utilize an ad server that offers those services and provide HSAN with code from the ad server that is ready to copy and paste into the website. Advertisers should understand that these technologies could interfere with accurate tracking of impressions and/or clicks on their ad server.

Promotional Permission:

You grant us and our partner publications a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicenseable and transferable license to use, reproduce, distribute, and display your company name, logo, and advertising copy as part of its promotional material to market advertising services in print and digital format.


The Advertiser agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless M.A. Kelley and Company, Inc. and its respective affiliates, successors, transferees, assignees and licensees, and any of their respective agents, officers, directors and employees of each, from and against any and all damages, costs (including without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs in the defense and disposition of such matters), expenses, liabilities, claims (collectively, “Costs”) and causes of action brought by or on behalf of any third party in any way arising by reason of or relating to (i) any breach by the Advertiser of any warranty, representation, covenant or other undertaking in this Agreement; and/or (ii) damage caused by the negligence or willful misconduct of the Advertiser or the Advertiser’s employees, agents, and/or representatives.

No delay or omission by either Party to exercise any right or power it has under this Agreement shall impair or be construed as a waiver of such right or power by either Party.
