Tell us about the best promoters (BestPromoter[at]am-ny.com)
In New York City, more and more people catch up on the events of the day from new sources like the various news zippers in Times Square, TV screens that flash news clips in elevators, lottery kiosks and all-news radio programs. Reader surveys and plummeting circulation rates prove that broadsheet newspapers are losing much of their impact.
Now, amNewYork has taken the notion of "instant news" one step further. Subways cars and buses don't get radio or TV reception, so hundreds of thousands of on-the-run commuters are snapping up free newspapers from our army of hawkers and street boxes scattered around this city and its suburbs.
New York's youth see news as a commodity that you don't have to pay for. They want their news quick and simple. And amNewYork fills that niche.
Their work is also supplemented with wire stories from the Associated Press, and with writers and syndicated columnists from Tribune Co. newspapers such as the Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Tribune, the Baltimore Sun and other papers.
amNewYork's aggressive team of reporters and editors brings you all the news that you need to start your day.
Hey, who says a good newspaper can't be free?
Writers must mention relevant financial, political or other interest in a subject. All letters, including those sent via e-mail, must have the writer's day and night telephone numbers and mailing address. E-mailed letters should NOT be sent as attachments.
We cannot acknowledge or return letters. Letters become the property of amNew York and may be published in all media. Anonymous letters will not be printed. Send e-mail to am-letters[at]am-ny.com. You may also write to Letters Editor, am New York, 330 W. 34th Street, New York, NY 10001.
How we gather information from users.
How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate and the services provided. You can visit many pages on our site without providing any information. Other pages may prompt you to provide information, such as when you register for access to portions of our site, sign up for membership, request certain features (e.g., newsletters, news updates and other products), sign up for a newspaper subscription or make a purchase. You may also provide information when you participate in sweepstakes and contests, voting and polling activities, message boards and chat rooms and other interactive areas of our site.
Like most Web sites, amNY.com also collects information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to our visitors. For example, we may log the name of your Internet Service Provider or use cookie technology. Among other things, the cookie may store your user name and password, sparing you from having to re-enter that information each time you visit, or may control the number of times you encounter a particular advertisement while visiting our site. As we adopt additional technology, we may also gather information through other means. In certain cases, you can choose not to provide us with information, for example by setting your browser to refuse to accept cookies, but doing so may limit your ability to access certain portions of the site or may require you to re-enter your user name and password. Additionally we may not be able to customize the sites features according to your preferences.
What we do with the information we collect.
We will use your information only as permitted by law and as set forth in this policy. Aggregated Information (information that does not personally identify you) may be used in many ways. As one example, we may combine information about your usage patterns with similar information obtained from other users to learn which pages are visited most or what features are most attractive. Aggregated Information may occasionally be shared with our advertisers and business partners, but cannot be used to contact you individually.
Personally Identifiable Information collected by Newsday may also be used for other purposes including but not limited to site administration and troubleshooting. Certain third parties who provide technical support for the operation of our site (our Web hosting service and our newsletter provider, for example) may access such information.
As we continue to develop our business, we may sell, buy, merge or partner with other companies or businesses. In such transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets. We may also disclose your information in response to a court order, at other times when we believe we are reasonably required to do so by law, in connection with the collection of amounts you may owe to us, and/or whenever we deem it appropriate or necessary to give such information to law enforcement authorities. Please note we may not provide you with notice prior to disclosure in such cases.
Your choice to opt out.
The quality news and information on amNY.com is supported by advertising revenue and a controlled program of e-mail marketing is an important element of our online publishing business. Like other Web publishers, we sometimes permit our advertising and promotional partners to e-mail you about services, features, products, special offers and unique content we believe might interest you. If you prefer not to receive e-mail communications sent directly from our advertisers or promotional partners, you will be given an opportunity to decline before you provide us information we might use for this purpose. If you decline at the time you provide us such information, we will not share the Personally Identifiable Information you provide with non-Affiliate advertisers for such purposes, though we may on occasion send you information on their behalf.
Affiliated sites, linked sites and advertisements.
Newsday expects its partners, advertisers and third-party Affiliates to respect the privacy of our users. However, third parties, including our partners, advertisers, Affiliates and other content providers accessible through our site, may have their own privacy and data collection policies and practices. For example, during your visit to our site you may link to, or view as part of a frame on a amNY.com page, certain content that is actually created or hosted by a third party. Also, through amNY.com you may be introduced to, or be able to access, information, Web sites, advertisements, features, contests or sweepstakes offered by other parties. Newsday is not responsible for the actions or policies of such third parties. You should check the applicable privacy policies of those third parties when providing information on a feature or page operated by a third party.
Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online. Should you choose to voluntarily disclose Personally Identifiable Information on our site, such as in message boards, chat areas or in advertising or notices you post, that information can be viewed publicly and can be collected and used by third parties without our knowledge and may result in unsolicited messages from other individuals or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of Newsday and this policy.
Newsday does not knowingly collect or solicit Personally Identifiable Information from or about children under 13 except as permitted by law. If we discover we have received any information from a child under 13 in violation of this policy, we will delete that information immediately. If you believe Newsday has any information from or about anyone under 13, please contact us at the address listed below.
California Privacy Rights
Beginning January 1, 2005, California law permits visitors who are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email or write to us at the contact information below.

Newsday reserves the right to change this policy at any time. Please check this page periodically for changes. Your continued use of our site following the posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes. Information collected prior to the time any change is posted will be used according to the rules and laws that applied at the time the information was collected.
This policy and the use of amNY.com are governed by New York law. Any claim related to amNY.com or this policy shall be brought in a federal or state court in Nassau or Suffolk Counties, New York, within one year after the claim arises.

amNewYork Advertising Terms and Conditions
These Advertising Terms and Conditions are hereby made part of the attached General Rate Card/Contract/Insertion Order (the "Advertising Agreement") by and between amNewYork, a division of Newsday LLC (Publisher) and the advertiser named therein and party thereto ("Advertising Party") and its advertising agency, if any ("Advertising Agency," and together with Advertising Party, "Advertiser"). Each such party acknowledges that the following additional terms and conditions are incorporated in and made a part of the Advertising Agreement. This Addendum, including the attached Advertising Agreement (along with any supplements, amendments, exhibits, schedules or addendums thereto, collectively, the "Agreement"), shall be binding upon the parties.
1. ADVERTISING ACCEPTANCE; PUBLISHER'S RIGHT TO REJECT OR ALTER
(a) Submission of an advertisement to Publisher does not constitute a commitment by Publisher to publish the advertisement. Publisher accepts advertising only by publishing such advertisement. Upon such acceptance, Advertiser acknowledges that (i) the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement shall apply to all advertising orders unless such terms and conditions are modified, superseded or otherwise altered by a written instrument signed by an authorized representative of Publisher, (ii) the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement shall prevail over any inconsistent terms and conditions set forth in any order or contract form of any Advertiser and (iii) insertion orders containing disclaimers are not acceptable and are not legally binding or valid. Publisher has the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to reject any advertisement or any portion thereof. Publisher's publication of an advertisement shall not affect its right to reject such advertisement thereafter.
(b) Publisher reserves the right to alter any advertising material in order for the material to conform to its current mechanical specifications. The rates stated in the Advertising Agreement shall remain the same upon a reduction in the size of any advertisement as long as the advertisement maintains the same proportion of the entire page. Publisher rates are based on column inch size rather than actual published size, which may have shrinkage related to the printing process.
2. LAWFUL ADVERTISING; INDEMNIFICATION
Advertising Party and Advertising Agency, if applicable, jointly and severally represent and warrant that (a) any and all material submitted to Publisher (i) is accurate and original, (ii) does not violate any law or contract or infringe the copyrights, trademarks, trade names, patents or other intellectual property rights of any person, (iii) does not constitute unfair competition, and (iv) contains no matter which is libelous, an invasion of privacy or publicity, an unlawful appropriation of any name or likeness or is otherwise injurious to the rights of any person; and (b) each of Advertising Party and Advertising Agency, if applicable, has obtained all necessary consents for publication prior to submission to Publisher. Advertising Party and Advertising Agency, if applicable, jointly and severally agree to defend, indemnify and hold Publisher and its affiliates and their respective directors, officers, principals, managers, members, partners, shareholders, employees, and controlling persons and their affiliates (Publisher and each such person being an "Indemnified Party"), harmless from and against all damages to and liabilities resulting from or relating to demands, claims, actions or causes of action, assessments or other losses, costs and expenses relating thereto, interest and penalties thereon and attorneys' fees, legal fees and any other expenses in respect thereof or in enforcing their rights hereunder, by reason of or resulting from or attributable to its breach of this Agreement, the publication of any advertisement by Publisher (whether or not Publisher assisted in the preparation of the advertisement), the distribution of any sample product submitted by Advertising Party and/or Advertising Agency or the acts or omissions of Advertiser, its contractors, agents, employees and guests at any Publisher event (if the insertion order includes Advertisers sponsorship of a Publisher event).
3. MATERIALS; COPYRIGHTS, TRADEMARKS AND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY.
(a) Publisher has no obligation to return any material submitted to Publisher by or on behalf of Advertiser to Advertiser or any other party, and Publisher shall have no liability for its loss or destruction.
(b) Publisher shall have the right to use any advertising published in Publisher's publication for the purpose of promoting any of the products and services of Publisher. Advertiser grants Publisher a non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable and worldwide license to publish any and all advertising content created by Advertiser or its agents or Publisher, including but not limited to photographs, artwork, text and graphics, in any media, presently known or unknown, including but not limited to Publisher's electronic publications on the Internet and in any archival retrieval system whether that information is digitally stored or stored on any other media. To the extent feasible and with the use of known technological resources, Publisher agrees that it will make reasonable efforts to prevent the reproduction of coupons capable of redemption by a consumer in any of Publisher's electronic publications.
4. POSITION REQUESTS
Publisher shall not be deemed in breach of this Agreement in the event that it does not honor a specific position agreement due to conflicting editorial needs, in Publisher's sole discretion. In the event Advertiser has paid a premium for a particular position, reimbursement for failure to publish in a particular position shall be limited to the refund of such premium to Advertiser.
5. LIABILITY FOR ERRORS, OMISSIONS OR FAILURE TO PUBLISH OR DISTRIBUTE
(a) Publisher's liability for errors or omissions in advertisements or advertising inserts shall be limited to the cost of advertising space in an amount equal to the erroneous advertisement. Publisher's liability for failure to publish any advertisement or distribute any advertising insert shall be limited to a refund of any amount paid to Publisher for such advertisement or insert. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Publisher shall have no liability for, and no credit shall be issued to Advertiser for, errors that do not materially affect the value of the advertisement or advertising insert or where Advertiser is responsible for the error or omission. Credits for errors in advertisements or advertising inserts materially affected by the error are allowed for the first publication or distribution only. Publishers liability in connection with any sponsorship of a Publisher event shall be limited to the amounts payable to Publisher under the particular insertion order to which it relates.
(b) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, in no event shall Publisher be liable to Advertiser or to any other parties for any further damages of any kind arising from any breach of this Agreement or any other advertising contract, written or oral, or act or omission of Publisher with respect to an advertisement or advertising insert or sponsorship, including but not limited to, direct, indirect, special, consequential, or punitive damages.
(c) Publisher is not responsible for errors involving orders, cancellations or corrections given orally. Written or facsimile confirmation of orders, cancellations or corrections must be received prior to Publisher's cancellation deadline. Publisher will publish advertisements and bill Advertiser for all advertising orders that are not canceled prior to the deadline. Advertiser may be subject to a cancellation charge when such cancellation results in production delays.
(d) Publisher shall not be responsible for the loss, theft or damage to any personal property of Advertiser, its employees, agents and guests during any Publisher event that may be sponsored by Advertiser.
(a) Payments are due by the fifteenth of the month for space used during the preceding month. Credit privileges will be suspended on accounts not paying by the 25th of the month in which a payment is due. Payments must accompany all orders from accounts which have not established credit with am New York.
(b) We reserve the right to cancel any contract and/or alter terms of payment: (1.) if any bill is not paid when due; (2.) if the advertiser and/or advertising agency becomes insolvent, makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors, is adjudged a bankrupt, or a receiver of the property or business of the advertiser and/or advertising agency is appointed, or if the advertiser and/or advertising agency shall file a petition seeking relief as a debtor under the federal bankruptcy act, or if a petition is filed against the advertiser and/or advertising agency for reorganization under said act, or for adjudication of bankruptcy; (3.) for any other cause considered sufficient by us.
7. AMENDMENTS; WAIVERS; RATE CHANGES
(a) Waiver of any term of this Agreement or failure of Publisher to terminate this Agreement on account of any breach by Advertiser shall not be deemed a waiver of Publisher's rights to subsequently enforce any term or to terminate this Agreement by reason of any subsequent breach by Advertiser. No waiver by either party on any one occasion shall extend to or effect or be construed as a waiver of any right or remedy on any future occasion or with respect to any prior occasion. No course of dealing of any person nor any delay or omission in exercising any right or remedy shall constitute an amendment of this Agreement or a waiver of any right or remedy of any party hereto.
(b) Except as set forth in subsection (c) of this Section 7, no amendment of any term, provision or condition of this Agreement shall be effective, unless in a writing executed by each of the parties hereto that specifically refers to this Agreement.
(c) Publisher shall have the right to revise the advertising rates set forth in this Agreement at any time upon notice to Advertiser of such rates. Advertiser may terminate this Agreement on the date the new rates become effective by giving written notice within 30 days of such termination. In the event of such termination, Advertiser shall be liable for Advertising published prior to such termination at the Current Agreement Rate. "Current Agreement Rate" is defined as the billing rate in effect at the time of publication.
8. TERMINATION OF AGREEMENT; EFFECT OF TERMINATION
(a) Publisher shall have the right to terminate this Agreement at any time, with or without notice to Advertiser, for Advertiser's failure to remit payment for invoices by the due date of such bills.
(b) Publisher reserves the right to review the volume of advertising placed on a quarterly basis and to cancel the contract in its sole discretion if advertising placed falls 15% or more below the quarterly average volume needed to fulfill the twelve-month contract amount, if Advertiser has such a contract with Publisher. Failure of Publisher to review the frequency of advertising or cancel the contract for any reason shall not be deemed a waiver of the right to cancel in the future or to impose any applicable rate adjustment.
(c) Subject to the terms of subsection (e) of this Section 8, Advertiser shall have the right to terminate this Agreement at any time by written notice to Publisher.
(d) Publisher shall have the right to terminate this Agreement for any reason and at any time by written notice to Advertiser, in which event and so long as Advertiser has been meeting its revenue, volume or other commitment to Publisher over time in a way that is consistent with Advertiser reaching its final commitment, Advertiser shall be liable for advertising prior to such termination at the Current Agreement Rate.
(e) Except for a termination under Section 7 above, in the event the Agreement is terminated or for any other reason Advertiser fails to purchase during the term of the Advertising Agreement the advertising generating the revenue, volume or other commitment due to Publisher, Advertiser immediately shall pay to Publisher the lesser of the following:
(i) the original commitment made to Publisher under the Advertising Agreement or
(ii) an amount for all advertising published during the term including advertising previously billed ("Amount Due"), adjusted for space, inserts and color actually used. The unpaid balance of such adjusted Amount Due shall be based upon the "Actual Rate Earned" for advertising during the term. The "Actual Rate Earned" is defined as the rate which would have been payable by Advertiser if the amount of advertising actually purchased during the term had been contracted for in the first instance, and such Actual Rate Earned shall be ascertained by reference to the applicable Publisher rate card in effect on the date that the advertising was published.
Advertiser agrees that no representations of any kind have been made to Advertiser by Publisher or by any of its agents and that no understanding has been made or agreement entered into other than as set forth herein.
10. FORCE MAJEURE
Publisher shall not be liable for failure to publish or distribute any advertisement because of strikes, labor disputes, government action, war, fire, breakdown of equipment, terrorist act, or any other cause beyond its reasonable control.
11. OTHER SERVICES
Except as stated otherwise, payments by Advertiser to Publisher for services or goods other than advertising space, inserts and color shall not be applied toward any revenue totals set forth in the Agreement.
Advertiser shall be liable for all costs incurred by Publisher, including but not limited to attorneys' fees and expenses, in collecting past due accounts and in defending any and all claims asserted in the action.
Any and all taxes levied against advertising shall be added to the advertising charges, including but not limited to any sales taxes.
14. PREPARATION OF ADVERTISING
Advertiser represents and warrants that it is familiar with all laws and regulations applicable to its advertisement(s), and that advertising material submitted to Publisher shall be in compliance with such laws and regulations.
On request, Publisher may assist Advertiser in preparing its advertisement(s) for publication. This assistance may include design, composition, text and artwork. Publisher does not assume any obligations to perform a legal review of Advertiser's advertisement(s). Advertiser remains solely responsible for the contents of the advertisement(s) and for compliance with any laws regulating such advertising.
This Agreement and the rights and obligations hereunder are personal to Advertiser and may not be assigned by any act of Advertiser or by operation of law, change of control of Advertiser or otherwise without the prior written consent of Publisher, to be granted or not granted in Publisher's sole and absolute discretion. Advertiser may not assign to, nor utilize for the benefit of another person or entity, any of the lineage required to be purchased by Advertiser without Publisher's prior written consent, to be granted or not granted in Publisher's sole and absolute discretion.
If any provision hereof is held invalid or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, such invalidity shall not affect the validity or operation of any other provision, and such invalid or unenforceable provision shall be deemed modified to the extent necessary to render it enforceable, preserving to the fullest extent permissible the intent of the parties set forth in this Agreement. To the full extent, however, that the provisions of any applicable law may be waived, they are hereby waived to the end that this Agreement be deemed a valid and binding agreement enforceable in accordance with its terms.
17. JOINT AND SEVERAL LIABILITY OF ADVERTISING PARTY AND ADVERTISING AGENCY
Advertising Party and Advertising Agency are each hereby obligated, jointly and severally, to pay any and all amounts owed to Publisher, as and when the same shall become due and payable, in accordance with the terms hereof. All written agreements between Advertising Party and Advertising Agency, shall include provisions whereby each such party agrees that Publisher has a right to recover any and all amounts owed hereunder from either such party directly. Publisher shall be a third-party beneficiary of all such agreements. Publisher is hereby irrevocably appointed as each of Advertising Agency's and Advertising Party's attorney-in-fact, coupled with an interest, with exclusive power to collect, receive and retain any amounts owing from Advertising Party to Advertising Agency, or Advertising Agency to Advertising Party, as the case may be, pursuant to such agreements and Publisher shall retain such amounts to offset amounts due hereunder. Each of Advertising Agency and Advertising Party shall immediately upon receipt pay directly to Publisher any and all amounts that it receives from Advertising Party or Advertising Agency, as the case may, for payment of amounts owed pursuant to this Agreement.
18. REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES
Each of Advertising Party and Advertising Agency, hereby represents and warrants to Publisher:
(a) It is duly incorporated or formed, as the case may be, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of the state of its incorporation or formation, as the case may be, and has all requisite power to own, lease and operate its property and to carry on its business as now being conducted.

(c) The execution and delivery by such party of this Agreement do not, and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby will not, (i) violate or conflict with the organizational documents of such party or (ii) constitute a material breach or default or give rise to any lien or other encumbrance, third-party right of termination, cancellation, material modification or acceleration under any material agreement, understanding or undertaking to which it is a party or by which it is bound, or violate or conflict with any applicable law.
(d) All written agreements between Advertising Party and Advertising Agency include provisions whereby each such party agrees that Publisher has a right to recover any and all amounts owed hereunder from either such party directly.

If the event is cancelled, Publisher will refund on a pro rata basis, as determined by Publisher, the portion of the sponsorship fee not attributable to sponsorship benefits already received.
(d) Advertiser shall seek the prior written approval of Publisher for any use of Publishers name and logo. Advertiser shall immediately cease using Publishers name and logo upon completion of the event or the earlier termination of the sponsorship or this Agreement.
(e) Advertiser represents and warrants that during the term of this Agreement, it shall maintain in force a policy of general liability insurance in connection with the event in the amount of at least $1,000,000 per occurrence, which shall cover Advertiser from any loss resulting from the risks therein.
