These Guidelines set forth standards that govern Ganjapreneur.com’s relationship with its advertising partners and the relationship between editorial and advertising content. The overriding consideration is that Ganjapreneur.com must maintain its editorial integrity and the trust of its readers. We believe that establishing, publicly displaying, and adhering to these Guidelines is important to protect the trust and transparency that should exist between a publication, its readers, and its advertisers. We also recognize that no set of Guidelines can address every situation or issue that may arise in the course of doing business, especially given the pace of change within the media industry. Accordingly, we anticipate that these guidelines will be revisited and updated from time to time. In particular, we will remain teachable and open to suggestions, criticism, and correction from our readers and other interested parties.
General Advertising Guidelines
The Guidelines in the following section apply to all advertisements and sponsor content served by Ganjapreneur.com. All advertising content must be clearly distinguishable from editorial content. To that end, Ganjapreneur.com will label an advertisement with the word “Advertisement” when, in its opinion, this is necessary to make clear the distinction between editorial material and advertising.
Advertisers are responsible for ensuring that their ads are adequately substantiated and comply with all applicable laws, regulations, and guidelines. While the content of advertising does not necessarily reflect the views of Ganjapreneur.com or its editors, if it comes to the attention of Ganjapreneur.com that an ad, in our opinion, contains demonstrably false or unlawful content, Ganjapreneur.com will refuse or remove the ad in whole or in part.
Ganjapreneur.com may exercise its discretion to refuse or remove any advertising that is inconsistent with or may tend to bring disparagement, harm to reputation, or other damage to Ganjapreneur.com’s brand. Although Ganjapreneur.com will evaluate whether to work with advertisers on a case-by-case basis, some examples of advertising Ganjapreneur.com will not accept are the following:
- Advertising that Ganjapreneur.com believes, in its opinion, is indecent, vulgar, suggestive, profane, or offensive.
- Advertising that paints a negative picture of the legal cannabis industry, or that encourages or caters directly to illegal activities.
- Advertising that Ganjapreneur.com believes includes hateful or violent text advocating against any individual, group, or organization.
- Advertising that Ganjapreneur.com determines to be inflammatory.
- Advertising that Ganjapreneur.com determines represents a personal attack against an individual, country, or organization.
- Advertising that Ganjapreneur.com believes will undermine the intellectual integrity, authority, and character of its mission and brand.
All determinations of the application of these standards to individual advertisements or advertisers shall be within the sole discretion of Ganjapreneur.com’s staff. Ganjapreneur.com’s editors will not be involved in deciding whether to accept or reject specific advertisers.
Ganjapreneur.com may remove advertising content at any time if such content is inconsistent with the policies described herein, with or without prior notice to the advertising client and regardless of whether the advertising content has been accepted or displayed within Ganjapreneur.com for any period of time.
Featured Content Guidelines
The guidelines in the following section shall apply to all Featured Content served by or appearing in Ganjapreneur.com and its subsidiaries. Featured Content is content created, commissioned, or promoted by advertisers in collaboration with Ganjapreneur.com’s staff. Ganjapreneur.com allows Featured Content in three forms:
- Content produced by Ganjapreneur.com as commissioned by its advertising partners, and
- Content produced by advertisers.
- Promotion of content previously created by Ganjapreneur.com editors,
As with all advertising, Featured Content does not necessarily reflect the views and choices of Ganjapreneur.com’s editors. Accordingly, Ganjapreneur.com will prominently display the the label “Featured” on all featured content, usually in place of the “Author” section. Ganjapreneur.com may additionally include, in certain areas and platforms, further explanation defining Featured Content to Ganjapreneur.com readers. In addition, Ganjapreneur.com will ensure the treatment and design of Advertising and Sponsor Content is clearly differentiated from its editorial content. Ganjapreneur.com does not require that Featured Content steer clear of controversy. Indeed, we expect that Featured Content, like our own editorial content, will sometimes address contested issues and will be written with a distinct point of view. That said, even with the caveat that Featured Content does not necessarily reflect the views of Ganjapreneur.com or its editors, Ganjapreneur.com will refuse publication of such content that, in its own judgment, would undermine the intellectual integrity, authority, and character of our enterprise.
As with all advertising, and consistent with the foregoing General Advertising Guidelines, Ganjapreneur.com may reject or remove any Sponsor Content at any time that contains false, deceptive, potentially misleading, or illegal content; is inconsistent with or may tend to bring disparagement, harm to reputation, or other damage to Ganjapreneur.com’s brand.
