Y5Media Advertising Policies provide guidance on what types of ad content are allowed. When advertisers place an order, each ad is reviewed against these policies. If you think your ad was mistakenly disapproved, you can request a review of the decision.
The Ad Review Process
The Y5Media review system relies primarily on manual process to check ads against our Advertising Policies. This happens before ads begin running, and is typically completed within 24 hours, although it may take longer in some cases. During this review, the status of the ad will be “In Review.” Additionally, ads may be reviewed again, including after they are live.
If a violation is found at any point in the review process, the ad will be rejected.
Re-review of ads
Ads remain subject to review and re-review at all times, and may be rejected for violation of our policies at any time. It is your responsibility to understand and comply with our Advertising Policies.
