You can do the following:
Identified vendors may use their logo as their avatar.
Signature links are supported for Sponsors only. If you place these customizations on your account, they will be removed and your account may be banned.
Signatures may not include any other forms of advertising, including special offers, business descriptions or images. Signature font size must be 15 points or less.
In the Advising Services & Discounts and Test Prep Services & Discounts area, identified Vendors and Sponsors may post a thread to promote their services.
Sponsors may also post a thread for their business or service in the Classifieds forum.
You CANNOT create threads in other areas just to promote your products and/or services. You may also not create posts in random, unrelated threads promoting your business. Doing either of these things will result in your account being banned permanently.
We take our "no advertising" policy very seriously at SDN. Overt advertising on our forums will not be tolerated outside of the Advising Services & Discounts and Test Prep Services & Discounts, and Classifieds forums.
We are also very serious about prohibiting and preventing "stealth advertising." Examples include:
Stealth advertising will result in an IMMEDIATE PERMANENT BAN from our forums with no ability for your business to re-register. It will also result in your permanent withdrawal from consideration or loss of status as an SDN Sponsor.
The SDN Classifieds forums can be used to advertise your products and services. You can post a SINGLE advertisement thread per product or service.
Sponsors are able to post in the Classifieds. Vendors must become a Verified Member in order to post in the Classifieds.
Surveys must be completed on a third-party site and links to the site must clearly state that information entered on the survey is subject to the third-party terms of service, not the SDN terms of service.
The same rules apply to all businesses, regardless of profit status. We offer a special non-profit section in the SDN Classifieds forums.
We don't get involved in these types of disputes. You are free to use your forum account to respond to negative feedback as long as you abide by the guidelines in the Forum Usage Policy and this document. If you feel your business has been victimized by INCORRECT information, you should consult your legal counsel for guidance.
