Relationships & Conflict of Interest
We require all staff and third party content providers to submit information on relationships they have before selection for product coverage. We require content providers to cover relationships such as the following; direct relations with the publisher or company which produced the product, any direct involvement in the development of the product, family and friends who have ties to the product or the company which created the product. At the discretion of the administration and editorial team we will select who covers products, and if we deem there to be too much potential for conflict of interest, we will prevent the content creator from covering the product and assign another individual to create the coverage.
In the event of a minor relationship which the administration and editorial team believe will have no impact on the quality of opinions expressed in the content, we will permit the coverage. The individual will be required to disclose the relationship in our information grids in articles and descriptions for videos.
