Advertising and/or advertisers do not affect the editorial content. As Viktorix generates revenue by selling ads, any ads that are not obviously ads will be identified. While we rely on advertising in order to offer free content without any paywalls, having ads on the site never constitutes endorsement of products, services, etc.
Reviews & Gifts
We do not accept gifts. All material and business connections will be disclosed. If our writers are given products/services to review, they will keep them long enough to conduct their research and then return said item(s). Industry writers will not promote their own business/services/products/etc. in their articles, however if a business owned by or associated with one of our contributing writers advertises on Eventstant we will indicate such to avoid impropriety. All writers will avoid conflicts of interest to ensure journalistic integrity. If a conflict or apparent conflict arises in the course of writing an article, orpresents itself after the fact, said situation will be revealed to avoid possible improprietyor the appearance of collusion.
At times, companies may commission Eventstant to write articles about their industries, products and/or services. In these instances, the editorial department, not the commissioning company, will decide who at Eventstant writes the article and what the writer will cover. Said company and its products will not be part of the article. Viktorix will disclose who commissioned these articles. All other sponsored content might be written by the advertiser and clearly marked as sponsored content on Eventstant.
