• Partners & Advertisers
• Mainstay’s Policy For Partners & Advertisers
• Mainstay’s Editorial Policy
Applicable to the information below . . . Mainstay, Inc. is the name of our company and My25 is the name defining our brand of content-based subscription products that are housed within, and delivered via, various platforms (such as web sites, email, mobile applications), which we refer to as the “My25 Network". The My25 Network is comprised of properties (content and supporting resources) that collectively make up “Mainstay Property.”
PARTNERS & ADVERTISERS
Once we developed a broad base of My25 ("Mainstay") Subscribers interested in preventive health, disease management, improved nutrition, and enjoyable quality-of-life experiences, we sought Partner and Advertiser content from relevant commercial organizations, manufacturers, and other leaders with information that can help Mainstay Subscribers embrace and learn more about vital topics, services and products. Some paid Partner and Advertiser content allows us to provide Mainstay Property within the My25 Network at reasonable cost, or no cost, to our valued Subscribers.
Mainstay provides opportunities for Partners and Advertisers to bring My25 subscribers information about their products and services by publishing their information, including links, within the My25 Network. We take steps to ensure that Subscribers can identify content that is under the editorial control of our Partners and Advertisers, so Mainstay Subscribers can make informed decisions about use of Partner and Advertiser content.
In order to distinguish between My25 content and content provided by one of our Partners or Advertisers, we label content from our Partners and Advertisers as: “From Our Partner,” “Sponsored By,” “By (Partner’s Name),” “Advertising,” “Advertisement,” and “From Our Advertiser.” Content from our Partners and Advertisers is subject to Mainstay’s Policy for Partners & Advertisers. Partners and Advertisers are responsible for the accuracy and objectivity of their content; this content is not reviewed by Mainstay for accuracy or objectivity. Sole responsibility regarding appropriateness and use of My25 Partner and Advertiser content rests with each Subscriber/user of the My25 Network.
MAINSTAY’S POLICY FOR PARTNERS & ADVERTISERS
Advertisers and Partners are responsible for adhering to Mainstay’s Policy for Partners & Advertisers and Mainstay’s Editorial Policy.
Mainstay accepts sponsored and advertising content from third parties for inclusion within the My25 Network. “From Our Partner,” “Sponsored By,” “By (Partner’s Name),” “Advertising,” “Advertisement,” and “From Our Advertiser” refers to banners, modules, links, microsites, native advertisements and other content provided by or on behalf of a Partner or Advertiser. The Advertiser or Partner is responsible for the accuracy and objectivity of their content. The following guidelines have been established by Mainstay to govern various aspects of Partner and Advertiser content on properties within the My25 Network.
The guidelines in this Policy govern issues like acceptance of Partner and Advertiser content by Mainstay, how Partner and Advertiser content is displayed on the My25 Network, and the removal of Partner and Advertiser content from the My25 Network. Mainstay has sole and absolute discretion with respect to interpretation and enforcement of this Policy and all other issues associated with Partner and Advertiser content within the My25 Network. Mainstay may change this Policy at any time in its sole discretion by posting a revised Policy to the applicable Mainstay Property.
1. Mainstay has sole discretion for determining the types of Partner and Advertiser content that will be accepted and displayed on the My25 Network, and under no circumstances will Mainstay’s acceptance of any Partner and Advertisement content be considered an endorsement of the product(s) and/or service(s) advertised or for the company that advertises, manufactures, distributes, or promotes the products or services.
2. There are certain categories of Partner and Advertiser content that Mainstay will not knowingly permit on the My25 Network at any time. These categories include but are not limited to the following:
• Illegal, ‘objectionable,’ ‘ineffective’ and/or ‘dangerous’ products or services (Mainstay reserves the right to determine what is ‘objectionable,’ ‘ineffective’ and/or ‘dangerous’.)
• Fraudulent, deceptive, illicit, misleading or offensive material
• Material that misrepresents, ridicules, discriminates (real or implied) or attacks an individual or group on the basis of age, national origin, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, disability or any other status deemed inappropriate by Mainstay
• Weapons, firearms, ammunition or fireworks
• Pornography or related themes
• Tobacco use of any kind
• Simulation of news or an emergency

• Media or messages for or that reference “M” rated video games or content
• Unreasonable, unlikely or extraordinary product or service claims
• Media messages or imagery that strobe or flash
• Media or messages that contain unsubstantiated “miracle” weight loss or other exaggerated claims of cure
• Advertising units that mimic computer functions or deceptively indicate a computer or other function that would be reasonable to the average user to assume as a reason to click the unit
3. Mainstay recognizes and maintains a distinct separation between Partner and Advertiser content and My25 editorial content. All Partner and Advertising content on the My25 Network will be clearly and unambiguously identified. Mainstay will not allow any Partner or Advertiser content on the My25 Network that is not identified with the label of “From Our Partner,” “Sponsored By,” “By (Partner’s Name),” “Advertising,” “Advertisement,” and “From Our Advertiser” or a similar designation indicating that the content is being provided by or on behalf of a Partner or Advertiser.
4. A click on a Partner or Advertiser’s content may only link the end user to the Partner or Advertiser’s site/platform or to a relevant, appropriated, sponsored content area on a Mainstay Property.
5. Mainstay retains the exclusive right to determine how any and all search results for specific information by keyword or topic are displayed on a Mainstay Property based on Mainstay delivered search results.
6. Mainstay reserves the right to decide at any time in its sole discretion whether it will accept, reject, cancel or remove Partner or Advertiser content from the My25 Network.
7. Mainstay cannot provide any assurances that Partner or Advertiser content will perform without error on all platforms, including web sites and mobile applications.
8. It is the Partner or Advertiser’s responsibility to comply with all domestic and foreign laws and regulations applicable to its content within the My25 Network (and to include all legally required legends, disclosures and statements in such content), including without limitation the current FDA guidelines for Direct to Physician (DTP) and Direct to Consumer (DTC) advertising. Mainstay will not monitor compliance with such laws and regulations. However, Mainstay reserves the right to review all Partner and Advertiser content for compliance with applicable laws and regulations and, if Mainstay becomes aware of any breach or potential breach of any applicable law or regulation of these guidelines, Mainstay may remove the content from the My25 Network.
9. No Partner or Advertiser content on the My25 Network shall include any pixels, tags, flash containers or any other type of information collection software code (any such pixel, tag, code or device) or shall place any beacons, cookies or other information collection devices on the browsers of users of the My25 Network.
