EDITORIAL POLICY

Positively Aware Magazine Advertising Policy

It is Positively Aware magazine’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.

Positively Aware magazine reserves the right to reject advertising for any product or service submitted for carriage in its publications. Positively Aware magazine 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, Positively Aware magazine reserves the right to require substantiation of the accuracy of expressed and implied claims made in advertisements submitted to Positively Aware magazine.

To preserve the integrity of Positively Aware magazine as a neutral forum for the presentation of information, it is our policy that the editorial content of the publication be maintained strictly independent from and outside the influence of our advertisers.

Consistent with this advertising policy, readers of Positively Aware magazine will be made aware of the difference between consumer advertising and the materials provided by organizations that publish in Positively Aware magazine. Positively Aware magazine reserves the right to reject or require revision of advertising materials that tend to obscure the distinction between editorial and advertising content.
