We accept advertising that complies with our Advertising & Promotions Policy.
Ads on the Site and Services may come from EmpowHER or its affiliates or by an EmpowHER web advertising partner or advertising network.
Our editorial content is not influenced by our advertisers, unless it is a paid campaign, and in that case we would label it as sponsored content. In-feed ads are designed to provide additional content-related information and resources. Their placement is determined by the algorithms of our advertising partners, but has no influence on the editorial content it surrounds.

We believe it is important that users are able to easily distinguish between editorial content and advertising. So all of the advertising, promotions and sponsorships for which we receive compensation are clearly labeled as such.

The HONcode's significance

The Health On the Net (HON) certificate guarantees that this website complies with the eight principles of the HON Foundation's Code of Conduct at the date indicated above. The persons responsible for the site commit to maintaining its compliance with the HONcode principles for the duration of the site’s certification.

However, despite the complaint system that has been put in place and the periodic review and automatic monitoring of certified sites to ensure maximum compliance with the HONcode ethical principles, it is impossible to eliminate all risks of incoherence that may appear.

Under no circumstances shall the HON Foundation and/or its partner(s) be held liable for any damages resulting from the use or the inability to use HONcode-certified websites. 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.

Those responsible for the certified website are responsible for the content of the website unless otherwise provided by law.
