As part of our mission to empower publishers, Notsy recommends that publishers follow industry best practices and policies to support a healthy ecosystem and maintain sustainable revenue streams. Ultimately, facilitating quality experiences for users and advertisers alike is the best way to monetize engaging content.
By using the services provided by Notsy, you agree to abide by the guidelines set out in this document. We reserve the right to update this document as needed, and it is your right and responsibility to keep up-to-date with these guidelines.
While adhering to the following policies should help ensure sustainable access to advertiser budgets, we at Notsy, along with our partners, reserve the right to refuse monetization of any segment of inventory at any time. In addition, acceptance of any segment of inventory on Notsy's platform does not limit the right of Notsy's partners to reject that inventory.
Use of Google Ad Manager in conjunction with Notsy's services requires compliance with Google's guidelines. In the event of a discrepancy between Notsy's guidelines and Google Ad Manager's guidelines, the more stringent requirement will prevail.
