AD & SPONSORSHIP POLICY

Authority Gardening’s mission is to be the people you turn to for parenting advice that you can rely on. We’re committed to bringing you content that helps to create better parents and happier families.

Authority Gardening make money from advertising, affiliate programs, sponsored content and other digital partnerships. While we do rely on advertisers and sponsors to provide us with the funds to run the website, we are committed to providing unbiased editorial content.

Here are the specific guidelines we follow about the types of advertising we accept:

1. We choose the ads.

We decide the types of ads that will be accepted and shown on AuthorityGardening.com. We reserve the right to reject, cancel, or remove any ads from AuthorityGardening.com, at any time and for any reason. We will provide prompt notice to the advertiser upon rejection, cancellation, or removal of any ad, along with an explanation. We also reserve the right to determine the appropriate placement of ads on AuthorityGardening.com.

2. Adverts don’t equal endorsement

Just because an advert, product or service is advertised on AuthorityGardening.com does not mean that we endorse the use of it unless specifically stated.

3. We will not accept certain types of ads.

We will not accept any ad that is factually inaccurate and/or, in our opinion, in poor taste. Pharmaceutical advertising is only accepted for approved indication(s) as determined by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Advertised products must be in market and readily available. AuthorityGardening will not permit, at any time, the placement of any ad for harmful, illegal or objectionable products or services. Ads 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 disability. Ads must not be related to alcohol, firearms, ammunition, fireworks, gambling, pornography, tobacco, or the simulation of news or an emergency. All ads must clearly identify the advertiser. Any ad that could be misconstrued as editorial content will be clearly labelled as an advertisement.

3. We are selective with our advertisers

AuthorityGardening.com is a family-friendly website which means that we do not accept ads that are misleading, inappropriate or in poor taste. We are extremely selective with pharmaceutical advertising and only accept advertising for those products approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and that can be backed by scientific research. AuthorityGardening will not permit, at any time, the placement of any ad for harmful, illegal or objectionable products or services. Ads 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 disability. Ads must not be related to alcohol, firearms, ammunition, fireworks, gambling, pornography, tobacco, or the simulation of news or an emergency. All ads must clearly identify the advertiser. Any ad that could be misconstrued as editorial content will be clearly labeled as an advertisement.

4. We clearly distinguish ads from editorial content.

In every instance, we maintain a distinct separation between advertisements and editorial content. All ads on AuthorityGardening.com are clearly and unambiguously identified as such. Clicking on an ad will take the user to an advertiser’s site or to a sponsor’s resource center on AuthorityGardening.com. Sponsored resource centers are labeled as such, with the name of the sponsoring entity displayed.

All advertising on AuthorityGardening.com is clearly identified. If content is sponsored by an advertiser or contains affiliate links, this is clearly identified at the top of the page.

Social media posts: AuthorityGardening may present advertising messages, advertisements or sponsored posts in its social media channels. These advertisements will be labeled “#ad” and may also include “#sponsored,” “#PartnerPromotion,” or “#AGsponsor.”
