Our writers have editorial independence when they review products and services. Despite being an affiliate, we work independently of the advertiser, even though there is a commercial relationship.
Our credibility depends on delivering reliable content, so we explicitly reject attempts to influence reviews and ratings.
Our primary responsibility is towards the readers.
Thankfully, most companies do understand this model. Still, some advertisers try to influence content written about them. We stay vigilant and not let anyone dictate our editorial decisions.
We also do not publish native advertising or guest posts, meaning content that matches the look and feel of the media but is written by an outside party.
