The websites and mobile applications directed to health care professionals are referred to as the HEALTHABLE Professional Properties.
As used here, the terms “Advertising” and “Advertisements” are as follows:
- Third party banners
- Contextual advertising
- Sponsored content
The guidelines stated in this policy cover issues like acceptance of advertisements by Krafty Sprouts, how advertisements are displayed, and how advertisements from the Krafty Sprouts network are removed. Krafty Sprouts have the sole and absolute discretion for this. We make it our job to interpret and enforce this policy. We also have the right to change the policy any time we deem fit.
Please read our terms as stated below:

We also recognize the difference between advertising, sponsored content, and editorial content. Thus, we treat each as a separate entity with varying guidelines.
We retain the exclusive right to determine how any and all search results for certain pieces of information by keyword or topic are displayed. The content listed is displayed with its source.
We also follow the terms stated on the Google Ads and link them to the corresponding sites. While third party content must adhere to this Advertising Policy, labeling content is governed by our specified policy. More importantly, advertising should not link directly to a registration/email capture page.
We reserve the right to approve whether any advertising will be accepted, rejected, cancelled, or removed at any time. We will provide prompt notice in all cases of cancellation, rejection, or removal. It is the advertiser’s responsibility to comply with all domestic and foreign laws and regulations applicable within the network. These include legally required legends, disclosures, and statements.
Advertising should not include pixels, tags, flash containers or any other type of information collection software code. We shall filter beacons, cookies, or other information for our protection.
