Advertising and Sponsorship Policy for Disabled-World.com

NO MATERIAL, INCLUDING ADVERTISING, APPEARING ON DISABLED WORLD IS INTENDED TO SUBSTITUTE FOR THE ADVICE OF A PHYSICIAN, AND READERS ARE ADVISED ALWAYS TO CONSULT THEIR DOCTOR FOR SPECIFIC INFORMATION ON PERSONAL and ALL HEALTH MATTERS.
Affiliate Disclosure and Advertising Links
In much of our product-focused content, you'll find buttons and text links that redirect to Amazon and other reputable online retailers. You should know that when you click on some - (but not all) - of the links for products or services, we may receive a referral commission if you decide to purchase. Some links lead to advertisers that are compensation based, there are also links that are not compensation based. Either way, our goal is to provide you with quick and easy access to information, whether we earn a commission or not.
If you click on one of these affiliate links, and end up buying something from the retailer, our parent company, Auscan Alliance Corp, will earn a small commission on your purchase. This revenue helps keep us in business, and ensures that our writers can continue to publish news, reviews, how-tos, and analysis to the highest editorial standards.
The inclusion of affiliate links does not influence the editorial direction of our product coverage. We are committed to evaluating products with utmost integrity, and the inclusion of an affiliate link should not be interpreted as a product endorsement.
Currently, Amazon is our main affiliate partner. Between Amazon's strong pricing, inventory, and Prime membership benefits, it's often our first choice for online shopping. That said, we also apply affiliate links for other reputable online retailers. The choice of one affiliate source over another should not be interpreted as an editorial endorsement, and we can't guarantee that the link we've chosen represents the product's best current price. Any compensation we receive does not influence the information we provide. In addition, the products shown on disabled-world.com are the exact same prices as if you were to find them on your own - they are not priced higher in order for us to receive a commission.

The appearance of advertising or sponsorship on Disabled World (https://www.disabled-world.com/) shall not be considered as a warranty, endorsement of claims made for a product(s) or service(s), or of their effectiveness, quality, or safety, nor an endorsement of a manufacturer, distributor or promoter of a product(s) or service(s) on the part of Disabled World (https://www.disabled-world.com/).

Information for Advertisers
All traffic to Disabled World is organic. We do NOT buy advertising, use PPC, Adwords, or use artificial traffic generating or inflation means. All visitors to Disabled World are highly qualified potential purchasers! This results in HIGHLY TARGETED advertising with very high CTR and few wasted impressions. Content-based adverts can be targeted for interest or context:
- The targeting can be CPC (click) or CPM (impression) based.
- The ads can be simple text, image, animated image, flash, video, or rich media ads.
- AdSense for mobile content allows advertisers to target our fully responsive mobile website using targeted Google advertisements. Just like AdSense for content, Google matches advertisements to the content of our website - in this case, a mobile website.
As an advertiser, there are often times when you want to site target a particular site running AdSense, but your particular product or service is really only relevant to a specific portion of the site. Or you might only want your ads running in a specific ad unit, such as the one running above the fold front and center. Google has released a new custom channel targeting feature that will allow advertisers to do that.
Topic targeting allows your ads to be eligible to appear on any pages of the Disabled World Network that have content related to your selected topics. On the Google Display Network you can reach a wide range of customers, choose which pages your ads appear on, and engage people with a variety of appealing ad formats. Those wanting to advertise with Google's targeted advertisement system may enroll through Google AdWords.
- Advertising space will not be sold nor sponsorship accepted on condition that any influence whatsoever be granted over the editorial process.
- Advertising must adhere to Canadian federal and provincial human rights legislation and shall not discriminate on any prohibited grounds.
