Holdings Data Terms and Conditions

Set out below are the terms & conditions that Agencies must comply with in relation to the delivery and use of Holdings Data.

The Nine Network will supply the Agency with a Holdings Data file each workday evening.  The Holdings Data file will record all bookings for the Agency that are (at the relevant date) held in the Nine Network's Traffic system.  The Agency must check daily that it has received the Holdings Data file and must immediately advise the Nine Network if it has not received the file.

2. The Nine Network holds an audit history of the date & time that each Spot was booked into its Traffic system, as well as the date & time that any changes were made to the Spot after it was booked.  The dates stored in this audit history will be used to determine the date that a Spot was "confirmed" to the Agency via Holdings Data.

3. On completion of the buying of each media campaign the Agency must perform a check of the Holdings Data for that campaign. The Agency must advise the Nine Network of any discrepancies between the records contained in the Holdings Data file as compared to the records held by the Agency within 48 hours of receiving the holdings data.

5. The Agency must perform a "pre-telecast" check of all Spots prior to the airing of a week's activity (a "week" is defined as commencing on a Sunday)  This check is to be performed on the Monday six days prior to the commencement of a week's activity.  The Agency must advise the Nine Network of any discrepancies between the records contained in the Holdings Data file as compared to the records held by the Agency within 48 hours of receiving the holdings data supplied each Monday.

6. The Agency must perform a check of the Holdings Data file in it's entirety at least once per week.
