On CD Freaks we have a pretty simple advertisement policy, you view our banners and in replacement you can use our freely provided services. We have however some guidelines that we use to minimize annoyance.
[li]We do not serve Popups on the forum
[/li][li]You can receive Popups on the frontpage
[/li][li]Floating banners on the frontpage once a week (*)
[/li][li]We will not sell/use your e-mail address without permission
[/li][li]We respect your privacy
These guidelines are subject to change as we have to follow the market. Please understand that advertisements make the site freely accessable and we would like it to keep it this way. Large sites like ours cannot excist without advertisement, if we dissapear there will be NO site like ours possible without advertisements.
We think we have a reasonable advertising policy and it’s not open to discussion. We however use advertising agencies to serve the banners. Sometimes they also serve Popup ads on the forum, if so please inform us by posting in this thread. Also please report other advertisements that violate our policy.
*The floating banners are NO popups, can be closed and automatically dissapear after 35 seconds
This forum as a search-engine friendly version (lite version). People coming from Google to our lite version will receive multiple popups. However, on the page where they arrive at our forum there is a link to the regular version of our forum where they can further use our own search function. On the regular version of this forum the above-stated conditions apply.
