FitPeople’s mission is to be a trusted source for information about people’s health and wellness. We are committed to providing you with authoritative and practical content, which is created under strict editorial and medical guidelines to ensure accuracy, timeliness and clarity.
FitPeople is financed through the sale of advertising on the website and its social networks, always prioritizing editorial autonomy, so our criteria is not modified in any case by this funding model.
In some cases it is possible that FitPeople may collaborate with sponsors to publicize their brand, product or service. This content is always labeled as “sponsored”, conveying this information to the user at the beginning of the article.
These are the specific guidelines we follow regarding the types of advertising we accept:
1. We do not endorse any advertised product or service.
Although certain products or brands may appear on our site in the form of advertisements, in no case should this be considered as an endorsement of the advertised product, service or brand. The evaluation of the products or services corresponds exclusively to the editorial team without considering the advertising relationships that may exist with the companies that distribute them.
2. We clearly distinguish advertisements from editorial content.
In all cases, we maintain a clear separation between advertisements and editorial content. All FitPeople advertisements are clearly and unambiguously identified as such.
3. We will not accept certain types of advertisements
Advertisements must not contain fraudulent, misleading or offensive material, including material that misrepresents, ridicules or attacks an individual or group on the basis of age, color, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation or disability.
Advertisements must not contain defamatory, libelous or threatening information. Advertisements must not be related to firearms, pornography, drugs, political campaigns, or the simulation of news or an emergency. Any advertisement that could be misconstrued as editorial content will be labeled as advertising.
4. We review advertisements
FitPeople has sole discretion to determine the types of advertisements that will be accepted and displayed on the Site, and reserves the right to refuse, cancel or remove any advertisement at any time if it is against FitPeople’s policies. In case of withdrawal of an advertisement, the advertiser will be notified immediately indicating the reasons for which the decision has been taken.
5. We clearly distinguish between sponsored and non-sponsored content.
FitPeople seeks sponsorships from reliable and credible research organizations, manufacturers and other service providers. Sponsorships provide economic benefits to FitPeople, but they also benefit our users by providing them with up-to-date information about services that these organizations offer.
Advertiser-sponsored content is subject to our editorial policy and is reviewed by our team. In addition, when content is provided or influenced by an organization it is marked as sponsored so that the user is properly informed.
6. Affiliate Program
As part of the article creation process, our editorial team may include links to relevant products that they feel may be useful to our readers. Although all products are chosen independently, we want you to be aware that FitPeople may receive a payment if you make a purchase on the site using the link we provide.
In cases where FitPeople receives a payment when users purchase or subscribe to the product or service, the page will include the following text: This article objectively and independently suggests products and services that may be of interest to readers. When the user makes a purchase through the specific links in this article, FitPeople may receive a commission.
