Advertisers and advertising agencies (together "Advertisers") assume sole liability for content of advertisements and for claims arising against MassCPAs. Each Advertiser warrants that it has the right to publish (and to authorize MassCPAs to publish) its advertisements, and that its advertisements and all content and copy contained therein do not infringe, misappropriate, slander, defame, or otherwise violate the copyright, intellectual property, or other rights of any third party. Each Advertiser will indemnify, defend and hold harmless MassCPAs (including its officers, directors, employees, members, and affiliates) and its customers and contractors from any and all liabilities, losses, costs, damages, judgments or expenses (including costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees) resulting from or arising in any way out of any alleged breach of the agreements and warranties set forth above.

We do not accept display ads from CPE providers or membership organizations, as it competes with our own efforts. (This does not conflict with Anti-Trust laws as they can reach our demographic other ways, such as purchasing a list from the boards of accountancy, advertising in the Practical Accountant/Journal of Accountancy, local business journals, etc.)

All advertisements will be reviewed by MassCPAs editorial board and are subject to our approval before placement on the site. Ads may be rejected if they cause our site to load slowly or if they do not meet our editorial standards.
