PNAA reserves the right to reject advertising copy and materials and to remove any advertisement placed on its Internet site at any time. Acceptance of any advertisement does not indicate an endorsement by PNAA of the products or services promoted, the company, or the claims made. Advertisements on the PNAA Internet site may not use the PNAA seal, name, or imply involvement of the PNAA in the company or the product being promoted.
Sponsorship consists of grants in support of various subsections of the http://www.mypnaa.org web site or conventions i.e. regional, national, international. The PNAA recognizes each granting company for its philanthropy in a specific and consistent manner. No editorial statement or endorsement of any company or product is included as part of any sponsorship grant.
As per policy, PNAA will sell advertising space on its website when the inclusion of the advertising does not interfere with the mission, objectives, and goals of the organization and its publication. Promotions of the various products and services available through PNAA may be displayed. Pop-up ads are not permitted. Advertising on the PNAA Website is directed to nurses and other healthcare professionals.
The appearance of advertising on the PNAA Website is neither a guarantee nor an endorsement by the PNAA of the product, service, or company or the claims made for the product in such advertising. PNAA, in its sole discretion, retains the right to decline any submitted advertisement or to discontinue posting of any advertisement previously accepted. The PNAA reserves the right to not link to or to remove links to other Web sites.
To maintain the integrity of the PNAA Web sites, advertising (i.e, promotional material, advertising representatives, companies, or manufacturers) cannot influence editorial decisions or editorial content (as defined in "Principles for Content").
