Our Advertising Policies

The Eden Prairie Local News reserves the right to accept or decline any advertisement or sponsorship it is offered. Eden Prairie Local News will decline to accept advertising that it knows or believes to be misleading, inaccurate, fraudulent or illegal, or that fails to comply, in Eden Prairie Local News’ sole discretion, with its standards of decency, taste or dignity. Eden Prairie Local News, like all quality publishers of original journalism, maintains a clear separation between news and advertising content. Advertising that attempts to blur this distinction in a manner that, in Eden Prairie Local News’ sole judgment, confuses readers will be rejected.
