How we use cookies

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about webpage traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.


Advertisement payment terms:
All advertisements must be paid for in full at the time of booking unless credit has been agreed. The price shall be the amount fixed by our published rate card on the date of acceptance of the order, plus VAT as applicable.

By placing an order with us, an advertising agency confirms that it contracts as principal with full authority from its client in all matters connected with the order and is responsible for all payments due.

Yarn Magazine will only accept advertisements from advertising agencies if they are recognised by us. Yarn Magazine will try to give notice of any price increases, but we reserve the right to change our advertising rates at any time. This will not affect existing contracts, including any fixed term agreement for a series of advertisements.

Advertisers are responsible for ensuring their advertisements comply with all applicable legislation, regulations and codes of practice. We reserve the right to reject any advertisement, or to require changes to it for any reason.

Advertisements are accepted on condition that the advertiser has cleared all copyright issues and that publication will not infringe any copyright, trademarks or other legal rights of any person or company. In supplying advertisements to Yarn Magazine, advertisers confirm that they have obtained any consent needed to refer to or portray people (expressly or impliedly) in the advertisement; and when appearing on any website:

  • will not, and will not attempt to, capture data or benefit from or retarget users using other websites, publications or products by any technological means, unless Yarn Magazine has given prior written permission to such activities and then only in accordance with the scope of that permission; and:
  • will not contain any virus or malware.

Where we believe that an advertisement is in contravention of any of these conditions we reserve the right, to suspend or terminate the advertisement, but do not assume the obligation to so. Where we remove an advertisement under this condition no refund will be given.

The copyright in work or material we contribute to or re-work for an advertisement belongs to Yarn Magazine and may not be used in another publication without our prior consent. We will dispose of advertiser’s copy, artwork, photographs or other materials after six months unless collected.

Series discounts apply to pre-paid orders only.

We will notify advertisers of the latest date for cancellations for each issue (the “booking deadline”). Cancellations must be received in writing before the relevant booking deadline.

Yarn Magazine will try to satisfy an advertiser’s request regarding the positioning of an advertisement, but no guarantee of position can be given unless agreed by us and paid for at the current rate.

Artwork format:
Please supply material as high-res, flattened PDFs or 300 DPI jpegs at the size required. We do not accept responsibility for the quality of reproduction of ads using artwork supplied.

See our dimensions guide (PDF – 200KB) for more information on the correct sizes and artwork formats to use.

Yarn Magazine is not liable for any error, misprint or non-appearance of an advertisement unless caused by our negligence, in which case the advertiser will be entitled to a re-insertion or proportionate refund.

The advertiser is solely responsible for checking the advertisement on each insertion and ordering correction where necessary. Except where we have been negligent, we shall not be liable for the repetition of an error, which is not notified to us in time for correction. Nor are we liable for an error or misprint that, in our reasonable opinion, does not materially detract from the advertisement. We shall not be liable in any case for losses relating to any business or public fund-raising of the advertiser, such as lost customers, revenue or profit.

Any complaints from advertisers regarding advertisements must be made in writing within one month of publication.
