Like all of our current and potential advertisers, Energy Times is committed to upholding the integrity and reputation of the natural health products industry,
supporting the health food store retailer and being honest with consumers and our readers.
To that Energy Times insists advertisers follow these guidelines:
• ET will not accept ads that are counter-productive to the growth of natural products retailers. Ads cannot solicit mail order sales of products that are sold in health food stores, or be in direct conflict with the retail sales of these products. Ads that have 800 numbers or website addresses that allow consumers to purchase products directly—bypassing the retailers—are not permitted.
• ET will not accept sexually explicit or highly provocative material.
• Advertisers must provide, upon request, adequate support for claims made within their ads.
• Ads cannot mislead consumers about benefits, use and/or safety of products.
• Ads cannot identify large discount chains and/or drugstores.
• ET reserves the right to place the word “advertisement” on ad materials that, in the publisher’s opinion, resemble editorial matter, or to request the advertiser to do the same.
We ask that you be a partner with us in our efforts to support the health food and natural products industry retailers and properly educate consumers by following
these guidelines. Together we can deliver powerful messages to our readers, providing them with the knowledge they need to make educated buying decisions.
