Terms and Conditions of Service


Advertiser Restrictions

The APTA and APTAWA opposes participation in services linked to the financial gain of the referral source. Because of this policy, APTAWA and this site does not accept marketing revenue from a practice if any referring practitioner has a financial interest in the physical therapy practice and refers patients to an employed physical therapist or to a physical therapist who supervises an employed physical therapist assistant.

Violation of the financial gain advertiser restriction will result in cancellation of any advertisement with all cancellation financial penalties applying.

Advertising Conditions

Closing Date: The fifth of the month prior to the month of issue. Any advertisement received after the closing date and before the newsletter goes to press may be accepted at the discretion of the newsletter staff based on space and time availability. If a closing date exception is granted, a $75 RUSH CHARGE will be applied to the cost of the ad.

Cancellations: A service charge of $35 will apply to newsletter ads cancelled on or before the closing date. No cancellations after the closing date. Web ads cancelled after they have been posted will receive a pro-rated refund less a $35 service charge.

Rate and Fee Changes: Rates and fees may change without notice. Applicable pricing will be reflected online at the time of ordering.

Web Classified Advertising: We typically post web advertisements within two working days of receipt of ad copy and payment, and group them according to category (e.g. Employment, For Sale, Education, Products and Services). All web ads are posted classified-style (i.e. text only) and correspond with our graphic style. APTAWA is not responsible for mistakes, typos or other errors in ad copy if they appear in submitted copy. Bonus Newsletter Classified Advertising: Web advertisers may place their identical web ad in the next available issue of APTAWA Connections, in the “Classified Ads” section, at a special discounted rate.

Policies: Advertising, including inserts, must conform with the ethical standards and policies of the American Physical Therapy Association and APTAWA. APTAWA’s Editorial Advisory Committee and staff reserve the right to decline any advertisement considered contrary or conflicting with APTA/APTAWA policy or purpose. An advertisement appearing in APTAWA publications does not imply or constitute endorsement of those products, services or employer by APTAWA.

Auto Renew: By selecting Auto Renew, the advertiser agrees to allow APTAWA to charge the price of the advertisement to the credit card on this order form on the renewal date each month until the advertiser cancels the advertisement.

Auto Renew Cancellation: The standard cancellation fee of $35 applies to the first month (prior to renewal). For subsequent months, cancel by the renewal or deadline date and you will not be charged. Cancellations of web ads received after the renewal date will receive a prorated refund less a $35 processing fee. Newsletter ads cannot be cancelled after the closing date (fifth of the month prior to publication). Web ad copy may be changed once per month. Renewal reminders will not be sent.
