About Our Advertising

Why Am I Seeing Advertisements?

SignUpGenius provides a basic sign up service for free to millions of users worldwide. The development, support, and maintenance of the free version of our site is primarily funded by the advertisements that display on the website or in our emails. For sign up creators that would like to remove advertisements from their sign up pages and the emails they send, we offer the SignUpGenius Pro subscription. SignUpGenius Pro provides a number of enhanced features including the ability for sign up creators to create sign ups and send emails without advertisements. If you are seeing advertisements in an email that was sent to you or on a sign up page, it typically means that the creator of that sign up is using the free version of our site.

What Kinds of Advertisements Do You Display?

We do our best to provide quality, non-offensive advertisements that will be of topical interest to our users. Advertising that you see on our site comes from one of two sources. First, an advertisement could be from a company that we partnered with directly. Alternately, an advertisement could be provided to us by an advertising network that programmatically fills the ad slot. We utilize several well known advertising networks to automatically fill a high percentage of our advertising inventory. For ads that are provided programmatically, we do attempt to filter out sensitive or controversial categories where possible through our account settings. While we do not manually preview every ad before it is served, we periodically monitor the advertising and block any advertisement that we deem offensive or inappropriate. We are in no way responsible for the content of an advertiser's website if you choose to click on an advertisement.

Do Your Advertisements Collect Data?

Like many web sites, we partner with ad networks that utilize contextual marketing, which is targeted advertising based on user data like web behavior. Ads on our site or in our emails may utilize data collected on other sites. Conversely, data collected on our site or via our emails may impact ads seen on other sites. Information gathered is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites). For the technical details and opt-out information, please see our privacy policy.

Hi Marcie,
Sign up creators have the option to upgrade to Pro in order to remove ads from their online sign ups and emails sent to group members. There is not an option for participants to remove ads on any invites or email you receive via our site.

How do I get rid of the advertisements when I receive a notice from Signup Genius?

Hi Lisa,
You can create an online survey sign up by choosing the 'No specific date' format in Step 3. We are happy to provide specific instructions if you contact us directly: http://www.signupgenius.com/help.

If you prefer, we also offer the ability to upload documents to our 'GeniusDrive' as part of our Pro Services. This will allow you to upload and store documents associated with your SignUpGenius account. You can then attach these files to your sign ups or any emails being sent from our site.

Please go to the link below to find out more information about SignUpGenius Pro.

If you do not currently have a need for Pro features, you can add an additional document on the Step 1: General Details section of your sign up.
Load your file to a web server or create it using a free web service like GoogleDocs. You can then insert the link in the descriptive area of your sign up.

Go to SignUpGenius.com and log in. Click the *Created* tab and select the pencil icon to the right of the sign up. Go to *Step 1: General Details*. In the editor toolbar look for the little button that looks like chain links to create the link. Be sure and click *Update* at the bottom of the page to save any changes.

How much does it cost to be able to add survey's?

Hi Epiphany,
Only the Pro Silver and Pro Gold subscribers need to assign 'No ads' to their sign ups. Since Pro Platinum has an unlimited number of licenses, all active sign ups in the account are automatically ad-free.

We have a Pro Platinum account and when i follow these instructions:
1. Click *Purchases*.
2. Under *Active Products* click *Assign No Ads*. Click the box next to a sign up to assign no ads licenses.
there is not an option for "assign no ads".
