THE LOAF LOUNGE PODCAST ADVERTISING GUIDELINES

 

Advertising Philosophy

The following advertising guidelines have been devised to help ensure our advertising products and solutions deliver the best possible value to our advertising clients and The Loaf Lounge listeners alike.  These guidelines are not intended as legal advice and following these guidelines does not serve as legal compliance.  Advertisers on The Loaf Lounge are responsible to make sure their ads and associated links within ads that direct users to content outside of The Loaf Lounge properties comply with applicable laws, statutes, and regulations.

 

Advertising Content Guidelines

The following guidelines apply to all ads appearing on The Loaf Lounge properties, including both The Loaf Lounge.com and The Loaf Lounge’s website applications and product integrations. The Loaf Lounge expressly reserves the right to reject or remove any ad in its sole discretion at any time. Final and ongoing approval of all creative material is at the sole discretion of The Loaf Lounge. In addition, The Loaf Lounge reserves the right, at any time, to re-evaluate previously approved creative material to ensure ongoing compliance with our advertising guidelines and an optimal listener experience, specifically in the event that creative material elicits significant negative feedback from our listeners.

 

General Content Requirements: 

In order to provide The Loaf Lounge listeners with a quality experience when interacting with our advertisers, the following general content requirements should be met:

  • Ads must directly relate to the content on the landing page, and must clearly represent the company, product, brand, or service that is being advertised.

  • Ads must not be false, misleading, fraudulent, inaccurate, unfair, or contain gross exaggeration, unsubstantiated claims, spam, harmful code, or other disruptive content.

  • Ads cannot insult, harass, or threaten a listener, or be vulgar, profane, abusive, defamatory, libelous, or otherwise objectionable. Targeting audiences that would likely be offended by the product or service you are promoting is a violation of The Loaf Lounge’s ad policy.

  • Ads cannot contain hate speech, whether directed at an individual or a group, and whether based upon the race, sex, creed, national origin, religious affiliation, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or language of such individual or group.

  • Ads must not violate the intellectual property rights of a 3rd party.

  • Ads may contain languages other than English under certain conditions. All submissions of non-English ads must be accompanied by an accurate English translation.

  • Use of The Loaf Lounge’s name, logo or other brand features without prior approval is not permitted. Ads cannot mimic or resemble The Loaf Lounge graphics, text or other aspects of The Loaf Lounge’s “look-and-feel”.

  • Ads may not suggest The Loaf Lounge endorsement or partnership. Ads linking to The Loaf Lounge branded content may make limited references to The Loaf Lounge in the creative material in order to clarify the destination of the ads.
