The following guidelines have been established by HealthMetrix Research to govern Advertising on MedicareNewsWatch.com. HealthMetrix Research may change this policy at any time in its sole discretion by posting a revised policy to the MedicareNewsWatch.com site.
1. HealthMetrix Research has sole discretion for determining the
types of Advertising that will be accepted and displayed on the Site, and
under no circumstances shall HealthMetrix Research's acceptance of any
Advertisement be considered an endorsement of the product(s) and/or
service(s) advertised or for the company that manufactures, distributes, or
promotes such product(s) or service(s).
2. HealthMetrix Research will not accept Advertising, that, in
HealthMetrix Research's opinion, is not factually accurate and in good
taste. HealthMetrix Research will not permit at any time the placement
of any Advertising for illegal or objectionable products.
3. Advertisers must only offer products or services, which are readily
available for purchase at the advertised price (with noted tax and delivery
fees). The Advertising must also clearly identify the advertiser.
Any Advertising that could be misconstrued as editorial content will be
clearly labeled as Advertising.
4. HealthMetrix Research recognizes and maintains a distinct
separation between Advertising content and editorial and decision-making
content. All Advertising content appearing on the Site shall be
clearly and unambiguously identified as such. Clicking on the ad will
link you to an advertiser's site.
5. HealthMetrix Research reserves the right to reject, cancel, or
remove at any time any Advertising from the Site for any reason and will
provide prompt notice to the advertiser upon rejection, cancellation, or
removal of any Advertising, together with an explanation following the
rejection, cancellation, or removal. HealthMetrix Research also
reserves the right to determine the appropriate placement of the Advertising
on the Site.
6. It is the responsibility of the Advertiser to comply with all
applicable domestic and foreign laws, including applicable laws and
regulations of the regulatory bodies. HealthMetrix Research reserves
the right to review all Advertising for compliance with applicable laws and
regulations and, if HealthMetrix Research becomes aware of any breach or
potential breach of any applicable law or regulation or of these guidelines,
HealthMetrix Research may remove the Advertising.
7. No Advertising shall be permitted which may injure the good name or
reputation of HealthMetrix Research or the MedicareNewsWatch.com Site.
