  • Ads cannot be designed to blend into page content. A 1px border is required or the ad must be clearly defined within the allowable ad space.
  • Ads may not blink, shake, flicker or flash in a disruptive manner. The look and feel of ads cannot match the MS Windows Alert scheme or misrepresent a user’s prompts as an ad. False functionality (a.k.a. fake buttons) is not allowed.
  • The action of clicking on ads must not initiate an application download, and all clicks must open a new browser window.
[/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Audio Guidelines” tab_id=”1488397550754-3574a82b-d7ea”]
  • All audio must be initiated by mouse-hover or user-initiated clicks, with an area of the ad clearly labeled with “hover for sound,” “sound on” or appropriate icons, such as a G clef or speaker. Once initiated, there must be a clear way to turn off the sound with an area of the ad labeled with “mouse over to turn off audio,” “sound off” or an appropriate icon.
  • All ads are subject to review.
[/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Deceptive Functionality” tab_id=”1488397597979-9a479549-503d”]
