Note that if you do not supply a proper category / sub-category, we may change your request - or we may process but not schedule your ad. If so, you may be charged for processing even though your ad does not appear on this site. Note that categories and sub-categories must fall within the same numeric range (e.g. the first two numbers must be the same). For example, if you want your ad to appear under the sub-category "2561750 - Catholic Jewelry, you should choose the category 2560000 rather than the out-of-range category 1130000 (Apparel & Jewelry).

Top | Question Summary

Q. What is a default category/sub-category?

A. Default categories/sub-categories may be assigned if requested categories / sub-categories are inappropriate / out of range / not available / etc., or if a category / sub-category is not specified. For example, if you selected the category "1130000 - APPAREL & JEWELRY" in your ad content submission, your requested sub-category should be within the range for this category (e.g. start with the same first two numbers - namely "11#####"). If you instead indicate an out of range sub-category (for example "2561750 - Catholic Jewelry"), we may choose the default sub-category "1139999 - Other Apparel & Jewelry" for the category you selected [or we may change the category to 2560000 to match the sub-category you selected or we may use the main default category/subcategory (e.g. 9000000 - Miscellaneous / 9009999 - Miscellaneous (Other)]. Remember that categories and sub-categories must fall within the same numeric range (e.g. the first two numbers must be the same). You should be careful to specify correct categories / sub-categories for your ads! Note that if you do not supply a proper category / sub-category, we may change your request - or we may process but not schedule your ad. If so, you may be charged for processing even though your ad does not appear on this site.

Top | Question Summary

Q. Your commercial sections terms seem somewhat harsh - are they not?

A. While our commercial sections terms may seem somewhat harsh, we have designed them (1) with the hope of discouraging problem advertisers, and (2) to encourage other users to advertise appropriately, and (3) to preserve our resources / consume as little of our time as possible. We certainly do not want to 'scare off' good advertisers - only encourage them to be careful, responsible, accurate, and require them to assume various risks. This way, our prices can be lower and we can better focus on the Catholic content of this site. We hope that those who correctly submit appropriate ads will be very happy with their experience advertising on this site.
