Advertising Policy

The linnc.com site is a free service, and third-party advertising helps us offset the significant costs of maintaining that free service. However, we also focus specifically on advertising solutions which we believe can add genuine value to the experience of visitors to this site. Naturally, not every advertisement will be of interest to every visitor, but we make an effort to ensure that, on balance, the presence of advertisements enhances rather than detracts from our site.

Advertisements may not be posted by third parties anywhere on the site. (Specifically, advertisements may not be posted without permission in the areas where individual visitors may modify the content of our site.) All ordinary advertisements will be clearly marked as such.

Our editorial content is not influenced by the funding sources/sponsored ads.

 

The sources of funding are unrestricted sponsorships and adverts from medical device and pharmaceutical companies.

 

We currently have no advertisement banners published on the linnc.com website.
