Ad Initial Review
Upon receipt of prospective advertiser’s email, all advertising banner images and their associated link pages are subject to an initial review and approval of Doc’s Freedom Files.

We also reserve the right to cancel any advertisement at any time.
Once the advertising banner artwork and link review are approved, payment must be received in full before we can place your banner.
We will send you an email that lets you know that everything has been approved and will provide you with details on how to make payment for the advertisement via Paypal. Please note that advertisers are responsible for payment of all Paypal fees.
