Advertising Guidelines

We believe advertising with DOT should result in better web experiences for publisher audiences and positive results for our advertisers. 


We want campaigns to reach the right profiles and promote products or services that provide genuine value. As a result, we have high quality standards for ads and may reject ads that do not comply with these standards. We have the right, but not the responsibility, to review ads for compliance with our standards. However, in all cases, you (the advertiser) bear responsibility for reviewing and ensuring all ads comply with our Advertising Policies. Accordingly, we ask you to familiarize yourself with these Advertising Policies carefully in conjunction with our Terms of Service. These govern all ads that run with DOT.
