What is Adveritsing Review?

"Advertising Review" is a program offered by IntegrityLink to help identify cases of misleading, deceptive, or untruthful advertisements appearing in the media throughout .

"Advertising Review" was developed to encourage integrity in the marketplace for both consumers and businesses.

"How does it work?

The “Advertising Review” program will monitor a wide range of advertisements (print, television, radio, and Internet) based on The Better Business Bureau Code of Advertising. The program initiates communication with the company whose advertising is being reviewed, and encourages the company to voluntarily substantiate or modify claims of the advertisement in question.

What advertisements are challenged?

Any advertisement that is misleading, untrue, deceptive, fraudulent, falsely disparaging of competitors, or makes insincere offers to sell a product can be investigated by IntegrityLink. An advertisement may be misleading although every sentence separately considered is literally true. Misrepresentation may result not only from direct statements but also by withholding or omitting a material fact.
