Editorial content sponsored by an advertiser is subject to our editorial policy and is reviewed by our editorial staff. When content is provided by or influenced by a named sponsor, we take meaningful steps to ensure our users will not confuse that sponsored content with Healthline’s own original editorial content. Here are the types of sponsored content Healthline presents:
Sponsored content: Sponsored content refers to content that is created by Healthline covering a topic area that is relevant to an advertiser. Healthline has sole editorial control, and no advertiser has any input into the content beyond the broad topic area. Sponsored content will be labeled in one of the following ways: "sponsored by our partners," "sponsored by," "from our sponsor," or "brought to you by."
Co-branded content: This content is created in partnership with our sponsor and may have a sponsor logo on the page, article, video, or other content. The content adheres to Healthline's editorial guidelines and may include products, promotions or links to an advertiser's site. In some cases, a portion of the content will be created, or directed by an advertiser. Co-branded content will be labeled with the sponsors logo, as well as the following text: "Made in partnership with BRAND NAME."
Brand pages: Healthline may host webpages that present content that is created by our sponsors or advertisers. This content is not created by Healthline, and does not undergo an editorial or medical review by Healthline. These pages are hosted as a viewer resource, and are not meant to imply recommendations or endorsements. Brand pages are labeled: "Paid for by."
Native advertising: Native advertising refers to links or ads that link to other content. These links may direct users to other content on Healthline, or may link to an advertiser or sponsor owned page. These links are displayed in the space between paragraphs of a Healthline article, along the right side of a content page and/or at the bottom of a page below an article or other content. In cases where links direct viewers to co-sponsored content, brand pages or sponsor owned web pages, such links will be labeled with one or more of the following: "Sponsored," or "Paid for by."
Social media posts: Healthline may present advertising messages, advertisements or sponsored posts in its social media channels. These advertisements will be labeled "#ad" and may also include "#sponsored," "#PartnerPromotion," or "#HLsponsor."

In every instance, we maintain a distinct separation between advertisements and editorial content. All ads on Healthline.com are clearly and unambiguously identified as such. Clicking on an ad will take the user to an advertiser's site or to a sponsor's resource center on Healthline.com. Sponsored resource centers are labeled as such, with the name of the sponsoring entity displayed.

Similarly, the HON Foundation and/or its partner(s) shall not be held liable for the content of such certified websites or any other website accessible via a hypertext link or through third-party information.
