Editorial Policy

The East County Gazette is committed to providing you with balanced, accurate information. The East County Gazette employs editorial professionals who are responsible for content selection, development, and maintenance processes. We recognize the importance of maintaining a clear separation between our independent editorial content and any materials that are advertising or any content that may be influenced by our sponsors.

We also have organized the operations of our website to provide for appropriate separation of our education and promotion programs from an editorial perspective.

Sources of our Information

All material on our website that we present as our own is either created by us or obtained from content providers whose editorial processes we have evaluated and found to be acceptable. The material we create is written either by our staff writers or freelance journalists whom we commission.

Our content has been evaluated by in-house editors and all submitted content is reviewed for fair balance and whether learning objectives are met by the content. Sources for third-party editorial content include government agencies, not-for-profit organizations, universities, and key stakeholders that provide news and information about all the verticals we cover.

Our editorial staff reviews most content from outside sources for accuracy, balance, completeness, and timeliness before we make it available on our sites. In the cases where a complete review is not possible, we rely on spot-checking and our previous evaluation of possible sources of information and of the editorial procedures used by the information provider (for example, in the case of the use of government agency news releases).

In most cases, the content we obtain from others has also been reviewed by the provider’s own in-house staff or subjected to review by independent authorities in the field. In some areas of our website, we make content available that comes from corporate partners and conference organizers.

We design these areas to make it clear to the user that the content has not gone through our editorial process. The East County Gazette reviews site content regularly to ensure that it remains relevant. Where necessary, content found to be incorrect or out of date is corrected, updated, moved to an archive (where it remains available), or purged. We can use the editor’s notes to indicate when this has occurred.

Linking to other sites

We provide company logos or links to other websites throughout our website. These logos and links are not intended to imply that we approve of or recommend these entities to users. Where we are making a recommendation, we clearly state that fact in connection with the logo or link. We design our website with the goal of making it clear to you when you are leaving our website for another website so that you will know that another site’s advertising, editorial policy, privacy policy, and terms of use are in effect.

Financial Information and Outside Influence

Currently, The East County Gazette, like most information sites on the World Wide Web, relies on advertising and sponsorship, including banner advertising, native advertising, video advertising, and sponsored posts. With respect to sponsorship or other financial relationships, we observe the following principles:
