Authenticity First

Topple is committed to providing a marketplace where publishers and advertisers are free to choose who they want to work with.

Free to Choose

Topple’s mission is to let publishers and advertisers select who they want to work with, free from BigTech’s interference. Our only advertising requirement is that the products/services being advertised are lawful.

Restricted Categories

Alcohol

Content can promote the sale of alcohol only in countries that allow the sale and advertisement of alcohol. Content must not:

  • target minors or display minors consuming alcoholic beverages;
  • associate the consumption of alcohol to having health benefits or improving social, sexual, athletic, or professional performance;
  • imply excessive drinking or that excessive drinking is therapeutic, relaxing, or stimulating;
  • show people under the influence of alcohol;
  • emphasize a product’s alcohol strength;
  • associate drinking with activities that require a certain level of skill with coordination (e.g. driving or sporting activities);
  • use celebrities or people/icons/cartoons or any other image that may be appealing to minors.

Marketers are solely responsible for complying with applicable federal, state and local laws and regulatory guidelines (including age-gating where necessary). As a reminder, marketers are solely responsible for the content that they wish to run in our network
