Inventory Policies

ProfitSence Inventory Policies

ProfitSence is committed to providing a fair value exchange between buyers, sellers and users and to that purpose, ProfitSence uses commercially reasonable efforts to provide participating buyers and sellers with a safe, transparent, and fair marketplace. ProfitSence uses a combination of proprietary tools, third party partners and manual monitoring teams to review, approve and monitor the quality of inventory. Inventory may include websites, mobile applications and/or other digital media properties made available for sale of inventory via ProfitSence’s platforms and services (“Sites”).

By using the ProfitSence platform and services, each Publisher (ie. owner or authorized operator of Sites) agrees to these Policies, which may be updated at any time by posting notice of such changes on our website or by otherwise providing notice. All publishers understand that it is their sole responsibility to keep themselves updated on all policies available here. ProfitSence reserves the right to reject, suspend, or remove from its platforms any site(s) at its sole discretion, regardless of whether a basis for removal is listed here. These policies do not limit ProfitSence’s discretion in any way.
