If News and Media Republic Ltd considers it necessary to modify the space or alter the date or position of insertion or make any other alteration, the Advertiser may not necessarily have the right to, cancel if the alterations requested are not acceptable, particularly when such changes are due to an emergency or circumstances beyond News and Media Republic Ltd’s control.
