At XPS, our commitment to being a trusted source in the technology sector is paramount. Transparency is a key factor in our relationship with readers, especially when it comes to advertising. We prioritize clarity and openness above all.

XPS engages with relevant organizations within our industry to introduce beneficial products and services to you, our valued readers. In selecting our partners, your interests are always our top priority, and we adhere strictly to our advertising guidelines to maintain your trust.

Advertising guidelines
For sponsorship opportunities, it’s essential that the products or services offered are accurate and not misleading.

Our advertising channels have no influence over our editorial content. It’s crucial for us to help readers differentiate between our own content and advertisements, which can appear in various formats, including:

Sponsored content

This involves collaboration with advertisers on topics relevant to them. While we may consider input on pertinent subjects, our editorial independence remains intact. Sponsored content is clearly marked with a byline such as “Presented By” or “Featured Partner.”

Display ads

These are banner ads on XPS, sourced from direct advertisers and/or ad networks based on our specifications. Some ads may be tailored based on the reader’s browser history. We do not endorse the products, services, or companies featured in the ad creative.

We strictly prohibit display ads that are harmful, illegal, or objectionable. Specifically, ads must not contain fraudulent, deceptive, or offensive material that discriminates or demeans individuals or groups based on age, color, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or disability. Ads for weapons, pornography, drugs, violence, or dating sites are not accepted.

All display ads are clearly labeled as “Advertisement.”

Affiliate programs

We may earn a commission from products or services purchased through links on XPS. Such content is identified with the note: “This post contains affiliate links.”

Giveaways

We host giveaways of relevant products provided by organizations or manufacturers in exchange for a fee. Selection is based on relevance to our audience, with prizes awarded as described.

Quizzes

Our quizzes offer a fun way to test your knowledge, sometimes including the option to enter your email for a prize from a sponsor. With your consent, your email will be shared with the sponsor.

Social media

Posts containing advertising messages are appropriately labeled with terms like “Presented by,” “Sponsored,” “Partner Promotion,” “Thanks Sponsor,” or “Ad.”

Your feedback is vital to us. Please contact us with any questions, comments, or suggestions. We’re eager to hear from you!
