Effective Date: February 22, 2009
At LNZ, it’s our mission to bring people together in a community caring website, making it easier for it's members to interact and create events. LNZ Community provides resources, tools, connection and news updates. One of our mission is to be able to contribute more projects for the progress of our beloved town MADRIDEJOS, Cebu.
To support this mission, we accept advertising on our site. The purpose of this policy is to explain the types of advertising that we accept on our site and the limitations that we impose on advertising. It’s also important that you are able to easily differentiate between advertising and independent, editorial content on our site. When we speak of “advertising” or “advertisements,” we mean all forms of advertising, sponsorships and promotions for which we receive compensation. WE do not endorse products, services or companies.
LNZ has not evaluated the products and services advertised on our site. The appearance of advertisements is not a guarantee of those products, services or the companies that manufacture, distribute or promote such products or services. The fact that certain products and services are advertised on our site is not an endorsement of those products and services and does not influence the editorial content on our site. We clearly identify all advertising.
We’ve established guidelines on how we label advertising so that you’ll know what is an advertisement and what is editorial content. We use clear and consistent language and visual cues to distinguish advertising from editorial content. You will see the following descriptons on our site for different types of advertising:
I.) "Advertisement" is used to label the most common form of advertising on our site. The content of this form of
advertising is controlled by the advertiser. Ads are labeled with the word "Advertisement".If you click on an
advertisement, it will usually link to a website that’s operated by the advertiser. We have no control over the
policies or other policies applicable to those sites before using them.
II.) "Sponsored by" is used to label content when an advertiser has paid for association with an article or service,
but the content or service is not editorially controlled or influenced by the advertiser.We identify this kind of
advertising by clearly showing that the content or service is "Sponsored by" the advertiser.
III.) "Provided by" is used to identify advertorials, which are content that are created or influenced by advertisers
for the purpose of promoting a product or service. We identify advertorials as “advertising” so that you can
distinguish them from editorially independent content. You can recognize advertorials on our site by a yellow
background, the “Provided by” label at the top of the article, and the name of the advertiser at the end of the
We don’t let advertisers influence the way search results are displayed on our site.
Search results that are in response to search queries or keywords entered in search boxes on our site are editorially or algorithmically programmed by LNZ Team and its search vendors. Advertisers do not influence the order in which we present search results on our site.
We identify paid advertising that appears along side of search results or on other pages of our site.
Any paid advertising listings posted on search results or other pages of our site will be identified as “Ads by Google.”
We do not accept certain kinds of advertisements.
To help ensure that the advertising on our site is consistent with our mission of helping our Community, LNZ has adopted certain limitations on the types of advertising that we accept.

a.) Contains false or misleading claims

The more we know about you, the more we can tailor our advertising to serve your interests and needs. When we show you advertising, we will use information that we collect about you to target advertisers.
We don’t share identifying information about you.
We may share, non-personally identifiable information with advertisers regarding how our site is used without your permission. However, information in these summary reports cannot be linked to you individually.
