Ethics Policy

At Velvetiere, we are committed to maintaining the highest standards of journalistic integrity and ethical conduct. Our mission is to provide accurate, fair, and comprehensive news coverage while upholding the trust of our readers. This Ethics Policy outlines the principles and standards that guide our reporting and editorial practices.

1. Accuracy and Fairness: We strive to ensure that all information we publish is accurate, well-sourced, and verified. We take care to present all sides of a story fairly and impartially, providing context and avoiding sensationalism.

2. Independence: Our journalism is independent of any external influences, including political, commercial, or personal interests. We avoid conflicts of interest and disclose any potential conflicts that may arise.

3. Transparency: We believe in transparency in our reporting. When errors occur, we correct them promptly and clearly. We provide sources for our information whenever possible and disclose our methods for obtaining and verifying information.

4. Accountability: We hold ourselves accountable to our readers. We welcome feedback and are open to constructive criticism. We provide clear channels for readers to voice concerns or complaints about our coverage.

5. Respect for Privacy: We respect the privacy of individuals and handle personal information with care. We avoid unnecessary intrusion into people’s private lives and only publish private information when it is of significant public interest and there is no reasonable alternative way to report the story.

6. Avoidance of Harm: We are mindful of the potential impact of our reporting on individuals and communities. We avoid publishing content that could cause unnecessary harm or distress, and we take care to protect vulnerable individuals, particularly children.

7. Integrity in Sourcing: We use reliable sources and give credit where it is due. We avoid plagiarism and do not misrepresent others’ work as our own. We ensure that our sources are credible and that their information is corroborated.

8. Editorial Independence: Our editorial decisions are made without undue influence from advertisers, sponsors, or external parties. We maintain a clear separation between our editorial and advertising content.

9. Conflict of Interest: Our staff and contributors are required to disclose any potential conflicts of interest and to avoid activities that could compromise their impartiality or objectivity.

10. Ethical Advertising: We ensure that all advertisements on our website are clearly distinguishable from editorial content. We do not accept advertising that compromises our integrity or that is misleading or offensive.
