General advertising requirements

You may only advertise property which you own or have written permission to sell on behalf of the owner;

All content must be suitable for a general audience, regardless of age -  i.e. must not be defamatory or offensive;

Content should not breach copyright;

Content must be a true and accurate representation of what is being sold;

Content must comply with relevant legislation - e.g. vehicle ads must include accurate VIN or other identity information, and no deceptive conduct should be entered into.



The Publisher will not be liable for any loss or damages (including direct, indirect, consequential, incidental and exemplary):

  • in relation to a notice or advertisement not appearing according to instructions;
  • if the Site (all Are Media digital properties) is unavailable to users (by virtue of interruption, suspension or termination) for any reason, including due to computer or communications link downtime attributable to malfunction, upgrades or preventative or remedial maintenance activities;
  • if there is any deficiency or inaccuracy in a published advertisement.

By placing a private advertisement an advertiser agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Publisher, its employees and agents from and against all actions, proceedings, suits, claims and demands brought or made against Are Media by any person arising from or as a consequence of such an action and from and against any damage, loss, cost or expense suffered or incurred by Are Media as a direct or indirect consequence of that action.

These terms and conditions shall be governed by the laws of the state of Victoria. The parties agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts exercising jurisdiction there.
