Advertising Policy

It is The Body's policy to present advertising that is truthful and neither misleading nor deceptive. We ask that all advertising messages be prepared with proper consideration of the type of product being advertised and the audience to whom the advertising is directed. This policy is in keeping with state and federal laws and regulations. It is also simply a matter of good citizenship.

The Body reserves the right to reject advertising for any product or service submitted for carriage on its site. The Body also reserves the right to require elimination or revision of any material in any advertisement that violates our standards, federal, state or local laws or regulations or is otherwise contrary to the public interest. Furthermore, The Body reserves the right to require substantiation of the accuracy of express and implied claims made in advertisements submitted to The Body.

To preserve the integrity of The Body as a neutral forum for the presentation of information, it is our policy that the editorial content of the site be maintained strictly independent from and outside the influence of our advertisers. Consistent with this advertising policy, users of The Body will be made aware of the difference between consumer advertising and the materials provided by organizations that publish on The Body. The Body reserves the right to reject or require revision of advertising materials that tend to obscure the distinction between editorial and advertising content.

From time to time, The Body may create special advertorial sections of its websites, consisting of content from its advertisers.
