Editorial Style - RPL Style Guide for Using Trademark Symbols & Preferred Usage in New Zealand Business Writing
On all of Review magazines, we do not use either the TM symbol or ® in any of our editorial or news copy but will capitalise or use an initial cap  (e.g. Ghiotti, Watties). In press releases and business writing, it is generally recommended as a style guide for publishing in New Zealand to use the trademark symbol [superscript ® or TM] on the first instance only or with the most prominent use of the mark outside of headings. The remaining instances should be without the symbol.  Review Publishing Co Ltd's editorial style guide is not to use either the superscript ® or TM on editorial content after the first mention.

Superscript ® or TM are used in paid display advertising content only as a general rule.

The full trademarked name and proper capitalisation, however, are used in editorial and advertorial content. Our intent is to make the content easy to read for the reader, and by only using the superscript ® or TM sparingly, we engage better with the reader while still enforcing the trademark message.

a) Review Publishing Co Ltd will not be liable for any loss or damage sustained by the client relating to the services provided. This includes but is not limited to the failure of an advertisement to appear when instructed by the advertiser or appearance in a form different from that instructed by the advertiser. Nor will we be liable for any adverse effects of our lodgement of overdue invoices with the appropriate credit agencies or as part of our list of bad debtors.
b) The client indemnifies Review Publishing Co Ltd from and against any proceedings, demands, costs, expenses, damages, penalties, judgements and liabilities of any nature taken, made, or awarded against or incurred by Review Publishing Co Ltd arising out of or in relation to the service/s provided.
c) The client warrants and declares that nothing in the advertisement/sponsored editorial or other copy submitted by the client infringes the rights of any person or is in breach of the provisions of any statutes, and its acceptance, use or publication will not give rise to any claims against or liabilities for the publisher. Review Publishing Co Ltd defines “service provided” as any service or services that have been rendered, whether they be chargeable, paid in kind or performed with no charge.

Photograph Copyright and Usage Terms
Contributors, including advertisers, retain copyright ownership of all photographs and visual content supplied unless otherwise specified in writing; contributors warrant they have lawful usage rights, including royalty-free or paid use, and release our platform from liability in the event of copyright disputes or third-party copyright inclusion, with contributors and advertisers ensuring clear disclosure of third-party content and terms of image usage and licensing.

a) The publisher reserves the right to decline any booking or free registration on our website/s and may, at its discretion, cancel or reschedule any advertisement and accepts no responsibility for late or non-insertion through accident or otherwise.
b) Placement of any advertisement (except where the actual position is confirmed in writing) is at the publisher’s discretion.
c) Casual displacement, rejection or omission of an advertisement does not invalidate a space order.
d) Whilst every care is taken, the publisher will not accept any liability for loss whatsoever incurred through either the content of or the incorrect appearance of an advertisement.
e) Annual subscription includes issues as detailed in either digital or print as available.
f) Where the signing of a booking form in confirmation of the booking has not been completed, Review Publishing Co Ltd reserve the right to verbally confirm the booking with the client and follow this up with an email confirmation to the client.
