Editorial Policy

Sports Finding is committed to providing you with balanced, accurate information. Sports Finding employs editorial professionals who are responsible for content creation, development, and maintenance process. We recognize the importance of maintaining a clear separation between our editorial content and any materials that are advertising or any content that may be influenced by our sponsors or benefactors. We also have organized the operations of our website to provide for appropriate separation of our education and promotion programs from an editorial viewpoint.

Sources of our Material/Information

All material on our website that we present as our own is either created by us or is 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 on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. 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. Our editorial staff reviews most content from outside sources for accuracy, balance, completeness, and timeliness before we make it live 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 conference organizers and corporate partners. We design these areas to make it clear to the user that the content has not gone through our editorial and screening process. Sports Finding reviews site content regularly to ensure that it remains relevant and up-to-date. Where necessary, content found to be incorrect or out of date is corrected, updated, moved to an archive (where it remains available), or purged.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 editor’s notes to indicate when this has occurred and this information is usually made available to the public.

Linking to other websites and blogs

We provide company logos or links to other websites throughout our website for reference. 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 given. We design our website with the goal of making it clear to you when you are leaving our websites for another website so that you will know that another site’s advertising, editorial policy, privacy policy, and terms of use are in effect and ours won’t be in action during that period of time.

Financial Information and Outside Influence

Currently, Sports Finding, like most information sites on the World Wide Web, does rely 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 guidelines:

 

  • We clearly separate sponsored content from non-sponsored content and we make it known;
    We may obtain revenues from third parties related to advertising sponsored by others on our website, including advertising revenues, commissions on consumer purchases, fees based on consumer use of links to other websites and pages.
  • We do not intend any links to other websites, logos, or marks of other companies, or any co-branding to constitute recommendations unless we specifically indicate that we recommend them or share them.
  • For research content on our website, we will clearly mention the author or source of the material and the date of the material or its last update. Where we present content as the result of case studies, projects or academic research, we will clearly mention the actual author of the content and others who have had a major role in writing, editing or otherwise preparing the material for future usage. If the conflicts, in our judgment, are significant, then we require their public disclosure in connection with the content on our website which is signed by them.
  • We require the same of those who serve on our various editorial boards and responsibilities.
  • We require authors who write for us to complete a conflict of interest form that requires disclosure of any financial interests and affiliations that may influence, or have the appearance of influencing, the specific content they provide.
