BMSS Advertising Terms and Conditions

Please review the BMSS Advertsing Terms & Conditions to obtain guidance on acceptable advertising, fees etc: 

The British Mass Spectrometry Society (the BMSS or CHARITY) welcomes advertising from 3rd parties that increase awareness of mass spectrometry related events, products or services that may be of interest to its members.

 Fit & Proper advertisers:

BMSS will consider advertising from Manufacturers of mass spectrometry instruments and associated equipment/software/services. BMSS will refuse advertising if a director of the company has been declared bankrupt, would fail the HMRC Fit and Proper Person test or has previously been late with payments to the BMSS.

 Definition of acceptable advertising:

  • All adverts must be consistent with BMSS values & constitution, BMSS reserves the right to refuse any advertisement it feels is outside these boundaries.
  • Advertisements of an analytical scientific nature (eg mass spectrometry products, related equipment, software and services) are acceptable.
  • Advertising for events/meetings are acceptable if there is no conflict with BMSS meetings. However, the BMSS would not accept advertisements for any event that would exclude any person or persons. An example of an events/meeting that would not be acceptable would be single-vendor user meetings.

  • Advertisements for jobs are acceptable, these would appear in the Jobs board of the BMSS website.

The Client agrees to indemnify the publisher in respect of all costs, damages, or other charges falling upon the BMSS as a result of legal actions or threatened legal actions arising from the publications of the advertisement(s).

It is the responsibility of The Client to check the first insertion of advertisements and notify BMSS immediately of any errors. BMSS assumes no responsibility for the repetition of errors unless notified by the Client.
