Advertising Policy

by davidbeebe


This policy has been established by Storied Hotels, a Storified Hospitality Group, Inc company to govern advertising across our network. This policy applies to all ad types, including (but not limited to) affiliate links, display advertising, native advertising, search ads, and video ads. Storied Hotels has established this policy on its own behalf, however, please note Storied Hotels is also subject to the policies of the policies of our ad network partners. This policy is subject to revision at any time without prior notice.


All creatives, advertisements and other material provided to Storied Hotels must comply with all applicable laws and regulations, and Storied Hotels assumes no obligation to review advertising for compliance.

Storied Hotels has sole discretion for determining the types of advertising that will be accepted and displayed, as well as the appropriate placement of advertising. Storied Hotel’s acceptance of an advertisement is not an endorsement of the advertiser, or of the products or services advertised. Storied Hotels reserves the right to reject, cancel, or remove any advertising at any time and for any reason.

Our Guidelines

Storied Hotels strives to provide ads that are clear, professional in appearance, and that lead users to content that is relevant, useful, and easy to interact with. Storied Hotels will not accept advertising that, in Storied Hotel’s opinion, is not factually accurate and in good taste. We will not permit the placement of any advertising for illegal or objectionable products.

Advertising must not contain fraudulent, deceptive, or offensive material, including material that misrepresents, ridicules or attacks an individual or group on the basis of age, color, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, handicap, and political or religious affiliation.

Advertising must clearly identify the advertiser. Advertising cannot mimic news headlines in design, tone, third person sentence structure or topic. Any advertising that could be misconstrued as editorial content must be clearly labeled as sponsored content and advertising.
