Posted by on | No Comments

At HealthNewsOnline, our mission is to provide you with the best, most relevant information you can use right now to manage your health or specific condition. We accept advertising on the site to support our mission. This policy has been established by HealthNewsOnline to govern advertising on its websites, including HealthNewsOnline’s acceptance of advertisements and how advertisements are displayed on and removed from HealthNewsOnline sites. For these purposes, “Advertising and Advertisements” mean all forms of advertising and sponsorships for which HealthNewsOnline receives compensation, including banner, badge, and contextual advertising, sponsored content, and promotions.

1. HealthNewsOnline has sole discretion to determine the types of Advertising that will be accepted and displayed on our sites. HealthNewsOnline does not review or endorse any products or services that are advertised on its sites. In no event shall HealthNewsOnline’s acceptance of any Advertisement be considered an endorsement of the product or service advertised or for the company that manufactures, distributes, or promotes such product or service.

2. HealthNewsOnline will not accept Advertising that, in HealthNewsOnline’s opinion, is not factually accurate. In addition, Advertising must not contain false or misleading claims, 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.

3. HealthNewsOnline will not accept Advertising related to any of the following: ammunition, gambling, pornography, tobacco, or the simulation of news or an emergency event. Advertising also must not promote products that are illegal or whose distribution would violate the law, advocate a political, religious or controversial public position or candidate for public office, make health claims that are not adequately substantiated.

4. HealthNewsOnline maintains a distinct separation between Advertising and editorial content. All on HealthCentral sites shall be clearly and unambiguously identified as such, and HealthNewsOnline will not accept any Advertising on HealthNewsOnline sites that is not so identified. Clicking on the ad will link to an advertiser’s site. HealthNewsOnline is not responsible for the content on the advertiser’s site.

5. From time to time, HealthNewsOnline may create special advertorial sections of its websites, consisting of content from its advertisers. Content that is created, provided or influenced by an advertiser on any HealthNewsOnline site is clearly and unambiguously identified as “From Our Sponsor” or “Provided By” the advertiser. Such advertiser content is not subject to editorial review by HealthNewsOnline. Any content in these areas that HealthNewsOnline provides is clearly identified as such and is created and editorially reviewed by HealthNewsOnline and is not reviewed or influenced by advertisers.

6. From time to time, HealthNewsOnline’s advertisers contract with it to sponsor certain targeted sections of its websites. Content in such sections will be labeled as “Brought to You By” or “Funded By” the advertiser. Such content is created and editorially reviewed by HealthNewsOnline and is not reviewed or influenced by advertisers. Such sponsored pages are clearly and unambiguously identified as such.

7. HealthNewsOnline reserves the right to reject, cancel, or remove at any time any Advertising from the HealthNewsOnline Site for any reason and will provide prompt notice to the advertiser upon rejection, cancellation, or removal of any Advertising. HealthNewsOnline also reserves the right to determine the appropriate placement of the Advertising on the HealthNewsOnline sites.

8. It is the responsibility of the Advertiser to comply with all applicable domestic and foreign laws, including pharmaceutical advertising that must be in compliance with FDA guidelines for Direct to Physician (DTP) and Direct to Consumer (DTC) advertising as well as underwritten CME programs that must be labeled in accordance with the guidelines of the Accrediting Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and any other relevant accrediting bodies. HealthNewsOnline assumes no obligation to monitor its advertisers’ compliance with applicable laws and regulations; however, if HealthNewsOnline becomes aware of any breach or potential breach of any applicable law or regulation or of these guidelines, HealthNewsOnline may remove the Advertising.

9. No Advertising shall be permitted which may damage the reputation of HealthNewsOnline sites.
