Sponsor Policy

Since we launched PharmPsych.com, we have regularly sought sponsorships and advertisements from relevant commercial organizations, manufacturers, and other leaders dedicated to providing health and lifestyle information. Our website is funded by advertising and sponsorship. These sponsorships, which are a form of advertising, enable us to provide our readers with content at no cost. PharmPsych.com provides opportunities for sponsors to bring you their marketing message and information about their products and services by publishing their information or links within our site. We take several steps to ensure that you can clearly identify content that is provided by and is under the editorial control of our sponsors before you view it, so you can make an informed decision as to whether or not to view it. For more information, view our Ad Choices.
Here are the ways that we identify content as being from a sponsor and some related points that we would like to bring to your attention:

• All content on that is created or provided by a sponsor is identified with the label “From Our Sponsor”
• Within a sponsor’s content, there may be links to the sponsor’s web site.
• When links to a sponsor’s web site are included in content, PharmPsych notifies you that you are visiting another web site. We describe this process in more detail in the PharmPsych Privacy Policy.
• Sponsored content carries the copyright of the named sponsor or the rightful copyright owner.

Please note that even if a content is sponsored, PharmPsych does not endorse any specific product, service, or treatment.

THIRD PARTIES

In addition to creating and providing their own content for presentation to you on our site (labeled as “From Our Sponsor”), third parties also provide funding directly to PharmPsych.

This content may appear in areas of our site that are dedicated to specific conditions or lifestyle activities or may be included in areas of general interest. When we work with third parties whose mission is educating the public on health topics or issues, we use specific criteria and framework. We work with them to create or select content within specific topic areas. The content is reviewed and edited by both the third party PharmPsych’s editorial staff. While providing information, we strive to maintain accuracy, balance, and objectivity.
In these instances, you will find:

• We place descriptive text at the top of the page to let you know that PharmPsych created or selected the content with assistance and collaboration from the organization or association we worked with to create the content.
• You will generally see the words that identify the article as collaboration; such as “______ collaboration” followed by the name of the organization who we worked with to create the content a hyperlink to the definition of “_______ collaboration.”
• We also tell you if there was additional funding by other third parties who have no control over the content.
