Such replacement or notification shall be conspicuous and shall take place promptly by way of publication in any of the following locations, or in any other locations that STATS and/or AP deem to be appropriate: (a) in the same location as the original material appeared, or (b) in a location reachable by the same pathways as the original material, or (c) in a location reachable through a search function, or (d) in a correction box if provided by AP.
