For the collaborative platform:

We do not allow advertisements for the sale of medical equipment such as insulin pumps or blood glucose metres, however much of a bargain you are offering, on the Forum. If you or your company has a new product to promote, please email Reality Check and, depending on the circumstances, we may be interested in promoting your product or your special offer to our members. We have a mailing list which is much larger than the people who visit the Forum, so contacting us is a better option for you anyway.
