Good morning all,
I hope this message finds you well. Recently, an outside company has approached our Marketing Department about posting commercial ads on our external web site for profit. While everyone in the IT area is opposed to this, the Marketing Department is actually humoring this venture. We have heard conflicting reports that an entity that receives state or federal funding cannot utilize their web site for such advertising. This is not confirmed, however.
Might anyone have a definitive answer regarding this item? Furthermore, does any of your institutions actually place commercial adds on your public web sites? Any help is greatly appreciated.
