Ad Review Process

Before your ads show up on ArchList, we review them to make sure they meet our advertising terms and guidelines. Under normal circumstances, we
review ads with in 24 hours. But in a few cases, the course may take longer.

    • What We Consider 

      ArchList will check your ad’s images, text, targeting, and positioning during the review, aside from the content on your page. We may not approve your ad if your page doesn’t function fully, doesn’t match the product/service you promote, or doesn’t comply fully with our advertising terms and guidelines.

    • What Happens After We Review Your Ad

      After we review your ad, you’ll receive a notice. If approved, we’ll run your ad. Likewise, you can view the results on your page.

    • What to Do If We Have Disapproved Your Ad 
      • Edit Your Ad 

If your ad got our disapproval for not fully complying with our policies, you can edit it and resubmit it for review.

      • Appeal the Decision 

If you believe we have disapproved your ad wrongly, you may request for a review of our decision. Send an email at using the subject line, “Ad Decision Review Request”.

General Ad Guidelines

    • You are responsible for understanding and complying with all applicable laws and regulations. Failure to comply may result in various consequences, including cancellation of your placed ads and termination of your account.
    • ArchList does not use sensitive personal data for ad targeting. Topics that you choose for targeting your ad do not represent the personal views, characteristics, or values of the people that use ArchList. 
    • Once displayed, ads become public information. Ads may be re-shared and accessed outside of the targeted group, including those from ArchList users running the ads or within ArchList products. If users have interacted with your ad, it may remain on ArchList products (for instance, shared until users delete it or made visible to users through their account tools). ArchList may disclose your ad content and/or all information associated with it to a government entity or body if we believe it would assist in lawful investigation. 
    • If you are managing ads on behalf of other advertisers, each advertiser or client must be managed through separate ad accounts. You must not change the advertiser or client associated with an established ad account or set up a new account. You are responsible for ensuring that each advertiser complies with these advertising terms and guidelines. 
    • ArchList, in our sole discretion, reserves the right to reject, approve, or remove any ad for any reason. This includes ads that affect our relationship with our users negatively, or that promote content, services, or activities against our competitive position, interests, or advertising philosophy.

These advertising terms and guidelines are subject to change at any time without notice.
