At iDeviceNews, we are committed to doing our jobs as journalists in the most honest way possible. Our ethics code helps us make decisions and makes sure that we put integrity, openness, and accountability first. Our stance on ethics is based on the following principles:
Accuracy and Telling the Truth:
We try to give our readers knowledge that is correct, reliable, and can be checked. Before we publish anything, our team of journalists and fact-checkers do a lot of study and double-check the facts. When mistakes happen, we fix them right away and let our audience know about the changes.
Being Independent And Fair:
We keep our editorial independence and stay away from any conflicts of interest that could make our news less reliable. We don’t let personal, political, or business views affect what we write. We give information in an unbiased way so that people can make up their own minds.
Integrity And Being Honest:
We are committed to being honest in how we do journalism. We make it clear if we have any affiliations, clients, or possible conflicts of interest. The trust of our readers is very important to us, so we try to be open about our sources, methods, and anything else that might affect the credibility of our material.
Privacy and Permission Should be Respected:
When we do interviews, use personal information, or take pictures or videos of people, we make sure to get their permission first. We are careful with sensitive information and follow the laws and rules about data security.
Being Sensitive And Fair:
We treat everyone and every group with respect and honor. We don’t use discrimination, prejudice, or stereotypes based on race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or disability in our material. We try to be fair and show different points of view to give a full and balanced picture of the topics we cover.
Information Gathering in an Honest Way:
We get information in a way that is legal and moral, and we follow all laws and rules. We don’t do things like copying other people’s work, making stuff up, hacking, or breaking people’s privacy.
When asked, we keep our sources’ names secret and protect their privacy. We keep our sources’ trust by following through on any deals or promises we’ve made about how we’ll use their information.
Accountability and Making Things Right:
We are responsible for what we put out there. If mistakes, wrong information, or misleading information are found, we fix them right away and let our readers know. We want our readers to let us know if there are any problems with our material.
Learning And Improving All The Time:
We are dedicated to always learning and getting better at being ethical. We keep up with how journalism standards change and work on our skills to make sure that our reporting meets the best ethical standards.
This policy on ethics shows how much we care about doing good journalism and keeping our users’ trust. We think that following these rules protects the honesty, fairness, and transparency of our material and makes sure that it is accurate and trustworthy.
