Advertising

policy

Heck Media may serve audio or visual advertising in our podcasts, on our website, and in our newsletters and email updates.
This advertising may be from podcast sponsors or from other commercial partners.
Audio advertising that you hear in podcasts will be in the form of host read ads or ads produced by clients, inserted into episodes at various intervals.
Heck Media will ensure that all advertising is clearly demarcated from our podcast content through the use of oral disclaimers or audio cues such as music to mark ad breaks.
Heck Media will take all reasonable measures to ensure that advertising and sponsorship follows the company’s ethical principles and values, namely to not publish advertisements for, or promote in any other way, services or products that:

  • are related to industries or practices that are harmful to the environment, including but not limited to mining, fossil fuels, animal agriculture, and non-essential animal testing
  • promote hate speech or discriminatory policies against any community or group
  • contribute to the exploitation of workers and labour markets

If you hear or see an ad on a Heck Media podcast or other marketing asset that you think doesn’t uphold our advertising policy, please get in touch with us at contact@heckinconcerned.com, or use the form on the Contact Us page, and tell us about it. We will investigate the matter and take reasonable steps to rectify the situation.
