HIPAA Survival Guide maintains a distinct separation between advertising content and editorial content. All advertising content on our Website is either clearly labeled as such or can reasonably be inferred from the context in which it displays. Sponsored areas of our Site are labeled accordingly, and the sponsoring organizations are clearly identified.

HIPAA Survival Guide, in its sole discretion, will decide which advertisements are allowed on our Website.
