Design and Performance
To protect our brand please ensure:
All images and content are appropriate to the general audience nature of the homepage.
The ad does not try to launch parts of the ad in a new browser window (pop up/pop under) or shake the browser window.
Please try to minimise the CPU load of any Ad Units submitted and bear in mind that there will be other flash elements on the page slowing down the users machine. Any ads that cause excessive CPU load and damages user experience once tested on the page will not be accepted.
All ad executions are subject to approval and ninemsn reserves the right to request changes to content and/or execution for brand equity/user experience reasons. If you are unsure about a concept that you are working on please submit it to your sales rep for feedback.
