Advertising Policy

My Advertising Policy

I have created my site with a minimum of sponsors. I have included some hyperlinks to vendors  where you can order books, tapes, and other materials I think are helpful – I don’t receive pay if you use these hyperlinks but I want include them for your interest. This is explained in more detail:

I recognize and maintain a distinct separation between advertising and sponsored content and editorial content. All advertising or sponsored content on this site will be clearly and unambiguously identified. I will not allow any advertising that is not identified with the label of “Advertisement,” “Information from Industry,” “From Our Sponsor” or some similar designation indicating that the content is being provided by or on behalf of the sponsor.

My advertising & editorial policy is pretty simple as follows:

Editorial Independence:

I maintain absolute editorial independence and sponsors have no editorial input or influence on the information itself.

Types Of Advertisements Not Accepted:

I will not accept advertising that, in my opinion, is not factually accurate and in good taste. I will not permit at any time any advertising for illegal or objectionable products. Advertising must not contain fraudulent, deceptive, or offensive material, including material that misrepresents, ridicules, or attacks an individual or group on the basis of age, color, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or handicap.

I will not accept advertising that, in my opinion, is related to any of the following: alcohol, firearms, ammunition, fireworks, gambling, pornography, tobacco, or illegal activity of any nature.

Privacy/Confidentiality:

I will not provide or sell any information to a third party that would allow it to identify a person’s individual medical circumstances or conditions. I don’t sell names for mailing lists, I do not practice or tolerate spam, and I respect the confidentiality of your identity as my own.  No place within this site collects cookies.

I don’t allow advertising unless I have first-hand knowledge of the book, tape, or service offered. I only allow advertising for things I would use myself and feel are helpful, useful, and safe.
