Franchise - Leaflet Distribution is a franchise all offices are independently owned and operated.
For the purposes of these terms and conditions Leaflet Distribution refers to Leaflet Distribution or a single independent franchisee where the name Leaflet Distribution refers to the franchisor or head office operation.

All arrangements made with Leaflet Distribution must be made in writing before the commencement of the distribution by first class post, fax or email, verbal agreements may be accepted but will have no validity in the event of a dispute.
Date of the agreement by Leaflet Distribution to distribute the material is the date agreed with the client for the material to commence distribution to residential or business letterboxes in the agreed area, the material must be with Leaflet Distribution minimum of 5 working days or as otherwise agreed for distribution to commence on the agreed date.
The time that Leaflet Distribution takes to distribute the material to the residential households in the case of a Door Drop or business premises in the case of a business drop will depend at all times on the availability of Leaflet Distribution leafleter to carry out the distribution. If a specific start and completion date is required these dates must be agreed before commencement of the distribution Material accepted for distribution by Leaflet Distribution will normally be carried out by its own distribution force.
The distribution will be delivered into Leaflet Distribution main conurbation or large village distribution rounds. Leaflet Distribution or its franchisee outlet may agree from time to time to deliver into a specific area other that a predefined distribution round, however this predefined area must be agreed in writing before commencement of the distribution.
4. TYPES OF DISTRIBUTION
Shared: The distribution will be carried out with a maximum of two other client leaflets which will as far as possible will be of non competitive nature; Clients leaflets will be distributed to Leaflet Distribution distribution rounds nominated specifically by the client. Client material will be accompanied by a Leaflet Distribution backchecking leaflet at the discretion of Leaflet Distribution.

The price quoted in writing will be held good for 30 days from the date of the quotation.
6. LEVEL OF PENETRATION
In the defined area of a Leaflet Distribution Distribution Round or other agreed distribution area Leaflet Distribution will use its best endeavours to achieve 100 percent coverage to delivery points in the defined area. However due to the logistics of delivering unaddressed material and the location of delivery points the Leaflet Distribution leafleter may not always be able to find all delivery points or letterboxes in the defined area, therefore the level of penetration of the distribution may be less than 100%.
In all circumstances Leaflet Distribution cannot guarantee to reach every letterbox in the defined area but it will carry out its best endeavours to reach the maximum level of penetration. Leaflet Distribution will only at its discretion deliver to shops and business premises in the Distribution Round.
7. CIRCUMSTANCES IN WHICH DELIVERY MIGHT NOT TAKE PLACE
It is emphasised that there are number of specific reasons why an individual property might not receive an item;
i) The material is unaddressed and therefore the Leaflet Distribution leafleter may not realise that they have not delivered to a specific property.
ii) The property in question may not have a letterbox or the letterbox may not be in the front door of the property.
iii) If the property is multi occupancy ie a converted house or block of flats it may not be possible to gain access to all separate occupancies in the residence. Sometimes due to security at the building it may not be possible to gain access to deliver any unaddressed material.
iv) If there is a warning of a dog at the premises Leaflet Distribution and or its deliverer will at its discretion not attempt to deliver to the property.
v) If there is a notice at the property advising that the resident or residents do not wish to receive unaddressed material or the resident has written to Leaflet Distribution or the Door Drop Preference Service to the effect that they do not require unaddressed material to be delivered we will not deliver to that address.
vi) Delivery will not normally be made to obviously empty or derelict properties or where the access to the premises may be hazardous to the safety of the leafleter.
8. SURPLUSES AND SHORTFALLS
The number of leaflets supplied to Leaflet Distribution will be checked for accuracy using an electronic counting device. If there is insufficient material to complete the area required the client will be advised. If the quantity of the material is greater than the amount need to complete the area nominated by the client the excess material will be retained and the client given the option to collect the surplus material at his cost or to nominate suitable addition areas where the material can be distributed to.
