To this end, we request that advertisers reserve ads on a rotating basis- every other month or alternating between spotlight and highlight articles. In addition, copy and images for each ad should be unique, or at most appear three times in one year. Retreat Finder reserves the right to limit, deny, or cancel article reservations.
