Ads are inserted with a permanent placement during the active term period and are not rotated out with other ad content. Placement is based on a first come, first served basis. We cannot guarantee that competing ads/parties  will not be placed adjacent to one another. We limit the quantity of ads per page to maximize advertiser benefit. If requested ad space is not available, parties will be placed on a waiting list and contacted in order of that placement.
