Advertising & Membership Policy
Advertising Policy. Laws.com has sole discretion for determining the types of advertising which will be accepted and displayed on our website. Under no circumstances shall our acceptance of an advertisement be construed as an endorsement of the services advertised.
Laws.com recognizes and maintains a distinction between advertising, editorial and sponsored content. All advertising and sponsored content is clearly identifiable on our website.
Advertisers offer services which are available for purchase at the advertised price. The advertising clearly identifies the advertiser. An advertisement which can be misconstrued as editorial content may be labeled as “advertisement”.
Laws.com may reject, cancel or remove from our website any advertising for any justifiable reason. We will provide prompt notice to the advertiser upon rejection, cancellation or removal of the advertisement, with our explanation. Laws.com also reserves the right to determine the appropriate placement of advertising on this website.
Contextual advertising. Laws.com offers two forms of contextual advertising: in-text and in-image advertising. In-text advertising matches specific keywords with contextually relevant advertisements. It places hyperlinks directly into the text of the webpage. In-image advertising matches specific images on a webpage with contextually relevant advertisements. It uses data about the image, its tags, and the surrounding content to match them.
Contextual advertising works on a cost per click (CPC) basis, when an advertiser pays each time a website user clicks on a text or image which directs the user to the advertiser’s website. The cost of the click will depend on bidding results (where advertisers bid on keywords or tags relevant to their target market), on the level of bidding for a particular keyword or tag. All bids that target the user are compared and the winning advertiser determined.
Alternatively, contextual advertising works on a cost per number of impressions (CPM) model. Instead of paying per click, an advertiser purchases a set amount of impressions, each of which is a single instance of an advertisement appearing on the website.
Editorial Policy. Our objective is to bring the users the most accurate legal information, to ensure that our website is a practical and relevant content source for laws and legal information.
We are committed to providing a wide variety of legal topics, and rather than filtering certain types of information, which may or may not be applicable to a particular individual situation, we rely on our users to choose the information that is most appropriate for them. That information, however, should not be used as a substitute for legal advice. You should consult your legal counselor before acting on any information viewed on this website.
In using our website you will notice that some content is identified as “advertisement” or "sponsored". This content has not been reviewed by us and is not subject to our editorial policy. Content labeled "advertisement" is subject to our advertising policy, and content labeled "sponsored" is subject to our sponsoring policy.
Sponsorship. Laws.com seeks sponsorships from legal firms dedicated to providing legal information. These sponsorships, which are a form of advertising, enable us to offer you our content at no cost to you. Laws.com provides opportunities for sponsors to tell you about their services by publishing their links and sponsoring pages on our website.
In order to distinguish between the Laws.com content and the content created by our sponsor, we may label it "sponsored." While content from a sponsor is subject to our advertising policy, it is not subject to our editorial policy. The sponsor is responsible for the accuracy of its content. Within a sponsor's content, there may be links to the sponsor's website. Sponsored content may carry the copyright of its owner.
