SDN Advertising and Sponsorship Policy

  1.  Advertising  

Shropshire Disability Network will accept appropriate advertising in both its online and printed versions of its newsletter ‘Your Voice’ and the SDN Website.

All advertisements must comply with the regulations set out by the Advertising Standards Authority.  They must be approved by the SDN Management Committee or an individual or nominated Sub Committee. The SDN Management Committee may refuse to accept an advertisement without explanation. If a complaint is received which, if not addressed by removal, might damage the SDN brand, an advertisement may be removed before the expiration of any agreed display period.

Advertisements that do not comply with SDN’s vision or might bring the Network into disrepute will not be accepted.

 SDN cannot confirm the availability of targeting facilities in respect of key words or key names.

 All advertisements must comply with the guidelines laid out by the Internet Advertising Bureau (IAB), as well as the principles laid out by the British Code of Advertising and Sales Promotion.

All advertisements for pharmaceutical products must comply with ABPI guidelines if they are to be seen in the UK.

In addition, advertisements for pharmaceutical products targeting the UK must link to a billboard advert, including prescribing information.

Third party ad-serving and tracking is forbidden.

3.  Sponsorship

The term sponsorship is understood to mean financial or other rewards received from third parties and is often offered and accepted on the understanding of mutual benefit.  Although acceptance does not imply that SDN endorses or even supports the commercial activities of the sponsor, there could be a public perception that this is the case. This is especially so when publicity surrounds sponsorship and the sponsored organisation has a clear set of aims and objectives which are widely known.

SDN will, therefore, encourage appropriate sponsorship.  However, a sponsor will have no influence on the content of the SDN website or newsletter.

Sponsorship will be acknowledged and clearly indicated.

The SDN logos may only appear on a sponsor’s website with written permission from the SDN Secretary or someone nominated on his/her behalf.  

4. Review of Policy

All SDN policies are reviewed annually.
