The Lens reserves the right to accept accept or decline any sponsorships. The Lens will decline to accept sponsorships that it knows or believes to be misleading, inaccurate, fraudulent or illegal, or that fails to comply, in The Lens’ sole discretion, with its standards of decency, taste or dignity. 
Like all quality publishers of original journalism, The Lens maintains a clear separation between news and sponsorship content. Sponsorships that attempt to blur this distinction in a manner that, in The Lens’ sole judgment, confuses readers will be rejected.
