All advertisements are subject to approval of the
Publisher, Editor, or publishing partner of Consortium Publisher which reserves
the right to reject or cancel any advertisement at any time.
Advertising is separate from content. Advertisers
and sponsors have no advance knowledge of our editorial content, nor do the
editors shape content to accommodate advertising. Publisher will not sell
advertising for a specific product on the condition that it appear in the same
location, and at the same time, as a specific article mentioning that product,
unless clearly labeled as an exclusive sponsor. Advertisers do not influence
any of our editorial decisions or advertising policies.
The appearance of advertising on sites is neither
a guarantee nor an endorsement by the publisher, society or editorial partner
of the product, service, or company and claims made in such advertising.
Advertising that appears at Publisher’s website
and in email service will be clearly distinguishable from editorial content.
Banner advertising is not sold or purchased based
on editorial adjacency. Ads are delivered randomly throughout the site and
constantly change; therefore, the adjacency of an advertisement to editorial
mention of product or category can occur inadvertently and infrequently.
Publisher’s advertising sales representatives have
neither control over, nor prior knowledge of, specific editorial content before
it is published.
Advertisers have no control or influence over the
results of searches a user may conduct on the Publisher’s website. Search
results are based solely on the functionality available through our search
software (e.g., keywords or natural language) and user-defined criteria (e.g.,
displaying most recent or most relevant items first)

against expenses (including legal fees) and losses resulting from the

limitation, claims or suits for libel, violation of privacy, copyright
infringement or plagiarism.
