Advertising and Sponsorship Policy
At OrganizedWisdom we create and maintain Digital Office Profiles for doctors and other clinicians to save them time, enhance their online reputations, grow their practices, and improve patient education. To support this mission, we accept advertising on our site as well as subscriptions. The purpose of this policy is to help you easily differentiate between advertising and editorial content on our sites.
1. We do not endorse products, services, or companies.
OrganizedWisdom has not evaluated the products and services advertised on this site. The fact that certain products and services are advertised on our site is not an endorsement of those products and services. We've established guidelines on how we label advertising so that you'll know what is an advertisement and what is editorial content. We use clear language and visual cues to distinguish advertising from editorial content.
2. Advertisements are clearly labeled.
"Advertisement" or "Sponsored" is used to label the most common forms of advertising on our sites. The content of this form of advertising is controlled by the advertiser. Ads are labeled with the word "Advertisement" or "Sponsored" adjacent to the advertisement.
3. We do not accept certain kinds of advertisements.

We also do not accept advertising that promotes alcohol or tobacco products. However, we may accept promotions for educational campaigns such as smoking cessation and responsible drinking messages that are consistent with genuine efforts to educate consumers.
4. Advertisements are not included on on profiles.
We do not include any advertising on OrganizedWisdom Profiles or allow instream advertising. We do have ads on other content pages that are clearly labeled.
