We also have the right to change the policy at any time that we deem necessary.

Our site also draws distinctions between advertising, sponsored content, and editorial content. As such, each distinct category is defined by their own unique set of guidelines.
Clicking on one of the advertisements on our site will result in a link to a third-party website or to other sponsored content that is to be considered solely the property of the advertiser. We exclusively retain the rights to determine how all of the information and keywords related to this site are searched and displayed. This content will be listed along with the source that sponsors it, and if sponsored content does appear then it will be designated as such.
All rules that apply to the other forms of media used on our website will also apply to any information that our site filters. We strive to adhere to all of the rules and regulations used by Google Ads, and all corresponding sites, as they are stated in their terms and conditions.
While independently-controlled content is required to adhere to Google’s advertising policies, our specific policies will govern the manner in which content is labeled. In no instance should advertising ever link directly to a registration page or email capture page.
We have sole discretion over which advertising materials will be accepted, rejected, cancelled, or removed from the site, and we reserve the right to do this at any time our organization deems fit. In all cases of cancellation, rejection, or removal of advertising materials we will attempt to provide a timely notification of the details.
It is the responsibility of the advertiser to ensure that their materials and practices are in compliance with all laws, including legally required legends, statements, and disclosures, that are applicable within the network. This applies to all laws and regulations, both foreign and domestic.
Our website also chooses to filter all beacons, cookies, and other forms of information for our own protection. None of the materials that third party entities post on this site can contain any form of code designed to collect information from its users, including but not limited to pixels, flash containers, or tags.
