The Observer is the student-run, daily newspaper serving Notre Dame and Saint Mary's.
Advertising policies are established by The Observer's general board and can be altered by the administration of the University of Notre Dame du Lac in its legal capacity as publisher of The Observer. The University prohibits the advertisement of alcohol, birth control and any advertisement submitted by specified types of groups.
All advertising is subject to the approval of The Observer's general board, and only the publication of an advertisement signifies its acceptance. The Observer will not knowingly publish any advertisements that violate the law.
Advertisers shall defend and hold The Observer harmless from all claims, demands and/or litigation directly or indirectly related to improper or unauthorized use of photograph, drawing, likeness, name, logo, trademark, representations or any other material provided by The Observer in any advertisement.
The advertiser and, if applicable, the advertising agency assume liability for all content and responsibility for any claims made against The Observer arising from the publication of the advertisement.
The names of people who place advertisements are not normally made public. However, The Observer reserves the right to release names upon proper request from appropriate law enforcement agencies or due to other circumstances.
Advertising simulating news must carry the words "paid advertisement." The Observer reserves the right to label any advertisements thus.
The Observer is not responsible for errors when copy, illustrations or any required material is submitted after listed deadlines. When The Observer is responsible for an error, liability is limited to the cost of the space occupied by and the first insertion of the erroneous advertisement.
Any advertiser with payment more than 60 days past due will be prohibited from advertising until the entire balance is paid in full.
The complete advertising policy is found in the Rate Card and Publication Calendar available in The Observer office, 024 South Dining Hall, or by mail, P.O. Box Q, Notre Dame, IN, 46556.
