Advertising Policy

  • Creamer Media distances and disassociates itself from all unscrupulous and offensive remarks, bad language, jokes, slander, messages which wrongfully belittle, undermine or smear any race, creed, belief or person.
  • Creamer Media does not carry advertising that includes nudity, near nudity or which is deemed to be offensive in any way – at the discretion of the publisher.

  • To uphold the editorial integrity of Creamer Media’s publications, the placement of adverts and publication of editorial are treated separately. No advertisement placement can be seen as a confirmation of any editorial coverage.
