Making the most of your advertising

In order to protect our advertisers and your viewers from illegal or undesirable content, Handmadeadserver extensively enforces its Advertising Guidelines across its network.
The rules are based on our Terms and Conditions, and the agreements that all Handmadeadserver publishers and advertisers sign up for.

Advertising should not contain

    Prohibited Content We do not accept advertising referencing, facilitating or prompting the following:
  • Tobacco products
  • Ammunition, firearms, paintball guns, bb guns, or weapons of any kind
  • Gambling, including without limitation any online casino, sports books, bingo, or poker
  • Scams, illegal activity and/or illegal contests, pyramid schemes, or chain letters
  • Uncertified pharmaceutical products
  • Adult friend finders or dating sites with a sexual emphasis
  • Adult toys, videos, or other adult products
  • Web cams or surveillance equipment
  • Web-based non-accredited colleges that offer degrees
  • Inflammatory religious content
  • Politically religious agendas and/or any known associations with hate, criminal and/or terrorist activities
  • Political content that exploits political agendas or uses "hot button" political issues for commercial use regardless of whether the advertiser has a political agenda
  • Hate speech, whether directed at an individual or a group, and whether based upon the race, sex, creed, national origin, religious affiliation, marital status, sexual orientation or language of such individual or group
  • Content that advocates against any organization, person, or group of people, with the exception of candidates running for public office
  • Content that depicts a health condition in a derogatory or inflammatory way or misrepresents a health condition in any way
  • Ads with adult themes, including contraception, sex education, and health conditions
  • Ads for Alcoholic Beverages

  • Landing pages / Destination URLs

  • Ads that contain a URL or domain in the body must link to that same URL or domain.
  • All users must be sent to the same landing page when the ad is clicked.
  • Landing pages that generate a pop-up (including "pop-overs" and "pop-unders") when a user enters or leaves the page are not allowed.
  • Landing pages cannot use "fake" close behavior (ie. when a user clicks the 'close' icon on the page, the page should close down and no other behavior should result).
  • Landing pages cannot utilize "mouse trapping" whereby the advertiser does not allow users to use their browser "back button" and traps them on their site and/or present any other unexpected behavior (for example: navigation to another ad or page).

Banner Connect recommends

  • Creatives not to be bigger than 35Kb
  • Animations not to be longer than 15 seconds
  • Animations not to loop
