FlashGet Kids Advertising Policies
Effective Date: [2023-08-16]
Overview of Our Policies
We are committed to fostering a robust digital advertising ecosystem- that is reliable, transparent, and beneficial to users, advertisers, and publishers. The aim of these policies is to assist advertisers in creating campaigns on our platform that align with our listed advertising policies.
These policies are designed to ensure a safe and positive experience for our users and to comply with relevant laws. This implies that our policies prohibit content that could harm users and the overall advertising ecosystem.
We aim for users to have a positive experience when they interact with an ad. Hence, ad forms and destinations must provide unique value to users and be functional, practical, and easy to navigate.
We employ a mix of AI and manual reviews to ensure the proper enforcement of our policies. Beyond reviewing individual ads, we also monitor and investigate advertiser behavior and may impose restrictions on advertiser accounts that infringe on our advertising policies. Our review process may not catch all policy violations, so ads remain subject to review and re-review and may be rejected at any time for policy violations. Advertisers are accountable for understanding and adhering to our policies as detailed in this document, all local laws and regulations, and self-regulatory ad posting guidelines, if applicable. If an ad is disapproved, advertisers will generally be given the chance to modify the ad to comply with our policies and may also request a review if they believe the ad was disapproved mistakenly.
Prohibited or Restricted Ads
Illegal Products and Services
Advertisements must not contain, advocate or promote products, services, or activities that are illegal, unlawful or unacceptable to our users.
FlashGet prohibits advertisements from containing content that third-party verifiers have debunked. Advertisers who repeatedly post information that has been determined to be false may be limited in their ability to advertise through FlashGet technology.
Advertisements must not engage in or promote discrimination based on personal characteristics such as race, ethnicity, color, national origin, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, family status, disability, medical or genetic condition.
FlashGet forbids advertisers from participating in discriminatory practices when utilizing our advertising products. This means advertisers cannot
(1) use our audience selection tools to (a) wrongly target advertisements to specific groups of people, or (b) unjustly exclude advertisements from being viewed by specific groups of people; and
(2) incorporate discriminatory content within their advertisements. Advertisers are also required to comply with relevant laws prohibiting discrimination. This includes laws that prevent advertisers posting advertisements for housing, jobs, and credit from discriminating against specific groups of people.
Advertisements must not contain content that claims that a person or class of persons poses a threat to the physical safety, health or survival of others based on characteristics such as race, ethnicity, national origin, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, caste, biological sex, gender, gender identity, serious illness, disability or immigration status.

Cheating and Deceptive Behavior
Ads may not promote goods or services intended to help users engage in cheating or deceptive behavior.

Advertisements may not contain promises or recommendations of unrealistic results regarding health, weight loss, or economic opportunities, as described below.

Advertisements that promote or reference alcohol products must adhere to all relevant local laws, and compulsory or established industry codes, guidelines, licenses, and approvals. They must also employ age and country/region targeting conditions that align with FlashGet’s targeting requirements and applicable local laws.

Ads must not direct users to externally targeted locations (landing pages) that have an unexpected or disruptive experience. Such experiences include misleading ad targeting (e.g., overly hype headlines or prompts that entice users to interact with the ad against their will) and directing users to landing pages that contain very little original content and mostly irrelevant or low-quality ad content.
Ads must not contain content that explicitly or implicitly characterizes individuals. This includes directly or indirectly stating or implying a person’s race, ethnicity, religion, beliefs, age, sexual orientation or behavior, gender identity, disability, physical or mental health condition (including mental state), economically disadvantaged group, voting status, trade union membership, criminal record or name.
