Our Code of Ethics
Here at GadgetzHQ.com our team of writers strives to provide unbiased editorial content for our readers. However, we also have to cover the costs of running our website and paying our dedicated team members. To achieve this, we employ various monetization strategies.
One of the ways we generate revenue is by using affiliate links to products and services on retailer sites. If you click on one of these links and make a purchase, we may receive compensation for the referral.
Additionally, we occasionally publish advertorials, which are paid-for editorial content, and sponsored content on our site. We make sure to clearly indicate which content is sponsored or promoted, so you can always differentiate it from our editorial content.
We believe in doing what’s right. We prioritize content integrity, and we stand by five principles to ensure that our readers receive the best possible experience.
Transparency is essential to us. We don’t hide anything, and we owe our existence to our readers. You deserve to know what we do, how we do it, and how we’re compensated. We present all of our content responsibly and verify all of our sources to avoid misrepresentation. We prioritize primary sources and present facts and opinions separately. Every claim we make will have a cited source, and we will never cherry-pick information to suit our narrative.
We hold ourselves accountable for our mistakes. We understand that we’re not infallible, but we believe that it’s critical to take responsibility for our actions, correct our mistakes, and learn from them to avoid repeating them.
Trustworthiness is vital to us. We strive to be the opposite of the sea of untrustworthy information online. We believe that trustworthiness must be demonstrated, not just promised. We value our readers’ trust and understand that without it, we’re nothing.
Fairness is crucial to us. We approach our content objectively and without bias. Our goal is to provide our readers with unbiased and objective reviews so that they can make informed purchasing decisions.
Independence is crucial to us. While we earn a living through affiliate marketing, we don’t have any owners. We aren’t involved in any shady backroom deals, and we don’t deal in snake oil.
We also have a list of practices that we refuse to engage in:
We don’t play favorites; we provide useful information. Positive reviews are based on a product’s quality, performance, durability, and value, not our personal preferences. We strive to avoid publishing any false content, and we correct or remove any that we do.
We don’t accept bribes from manufacturers for favorable reviews. A product earns a positive review if it’s of good quality.
We don’t hide our content behind paywalls. Our content is free for all to access.
In the future, we may experiment with native or sponsored content, but we will always clearly label it as such. Brands cannot dictate our reviews, and all reviews will be objective.
We refuse to use deceptive headlines or mislead our readers. Honesty is crucial to us, and we believe that misleading our readers is counterproductive and harmful.
We rely on our readers’ support to thrive. You vote with your money, and we strive to ensure that your money is well-spent on valuable products.
