World Architecture Community reserves the right to remove any advertisement that does not abide by the World Architecture Community’s WA Member Agreement1, in particular:

the content of the advertisement shall not be defamatory, libellous, threatening, pornographic or obscene, harmful to minors, in violation of child pornography or child sexual exploitation laws, and more generally, the content shall not violate any law, statute, ordinance or regulation.

The announcer has the ultimate responsibility for the content of the advertisement or sponsored content.

World Architecture Community also offers country / countries specific advertisement, however sponsored content is exclusively offered globally. Pricing per country for advertisement is calculated based on 1/8th of the applicable price (i.e., 2 countries for 2/8th of applicable price, and so on). We also want to mention here that the IP number filtering for defining which countries advertisements should be visible in are less and less reliable nowadays (among other reasons, the use of VPN in many countries); therefore World Architecture Community may not guarantee that your advertisement will be seen by all visitors from the defined country.
