Banner graphics must be tasteful and professional in appearance, ethical and truthful. AromaWeb does not accept mean spirited or disparaging banners.

Your banner advertising image must meet AromaWeb LLC's specifications for the specific position or via any special arrangements formalized in writing/email, and your image must be supplied within a reasonable time after you place your banner advertising order, unless other arrangements have not been made.
AromaWeb, LLC bases its banner advertising pricing on the forecasted amount of page views expected for page(s) that the position appears upon. The forecasted figure is calculated carefully and is based upon the average number of page views received within the previous few months. The traffic figures that AromaWeb, LLC quotes are obtained from AromaWeb's independent third party hosting company.
It is the advertiser's responsibility to confirm that their banner advertisement appears on the correct page and in the correct position. Once your banner term begins or once your renewal term begins, please carefully proofread your banner advertising and business listing information as it appears on AromaWeb.

AromaWeb, LLC reserves the right to refuse advertising from any company for any reason. Such reasons include but are not limited to companies that AromaWeb has concern are unethical, unprofessional, inaccurate, unknowledgeable about aromatherapy, or are a part of an MLM/network marketing arrangement (as such arrangements can make it too easy for the participants to not be knowledgeable about aromatherapy).

AromaWeb, LLC has the exclusive right to define for itself what it believes is "concerning."

You agree and understand that frequent revisions/changes to your banner (or the URL that it links to) may be subject to a modest revision fee unless other arrangements were discussed. This fee is subject to change in the future.

As there are many factors outside of AromaWeb's control that affect your sales results (i.e. the promotional pull of your supplied banner), AromaWeb, LLC cannot guarantee the success of your specific promotion, amount of traffic going to your Web site based on your promotion, the number of inquiries that you receive based on your promotion or the amount of sales generated based on your promotion.
Because most advertisers maintain and review their own referrer and sales logs, AromaWeb does not provide click-through or reporting statistics. This helps keep overhead and advertising fees as affordable as possible.
By procuring advertising on AromaWeb, you agree to receive occasional e-mail newsletters devoted to providing information of importance to AromaWeb's valued advertisers. You are welcome to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time (easy unsubscription information is provided within each newsletter).
AromaWeb is hosted by an outside hosting company. Although AromaWeb has a magnificent record of uptime, there may be periods where AromaWeb may not be available due to server maintenance, server upgrades, network problems with the Internet in general, etc. It is unfortunate but normal that Web sites do go down from time to time or are inaccessible for a variety of reasons. AromaWeb has included these occurrences in the pricing model for banner advertisements. As such, AromaWeb cannot offer refunds or discounts due to such downtimes. In the unlikely event that AromaWeb is down for a longer-than-reasonable period of time, AromaWeb will extend your advertising term accordingly. This will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
Even if your payment is received without being accompanied by the banner advertisement order confirmation form, or your signature on the form is missing, your payment indicates your full agreement to all the policies above and any stated within e-mail messages. Receipt of your payment also indicates your full agreement to the term(s) and other details set forth on this page, and any additional terms set forth in e-mail messages or on the banner advertising order confirmation form.
