Embargoes

Company representatives should never assume The Company Dime will agree to media embargoes. If you’re interested in offering us information “under embargo,” please contact us before sending it. Short of an explicit agreement to hold it until a particular time, material sent to us will be considered for immediate coverage. Please read this if you’d like to learn more about our editorial process.

Ethics

The Company Dime adheres to the Society of Professional Journalists’ Code of Ethics.

Particularly relevant in business-to-business journalism are bans on conflicts of interest, gifts including free travel, marketing or opinion that is not clearly labeled as such, and influence on coverage by special interests or advertisers. We may disclose below articles any business relationships, such as with professional associations, that we feel should be known to the reader.

We always aim to “acknowledge mistakes and correct them promptly and prominently.” Depending on how the updated information changes the reader’s understanding, we may note that an article has been updated at the top or bottom, and we may alert our audience through email, web alert and social channels. If you notice an error on our pages, a potential violation of the SPJ’s ethics, or any other material you find questionable, please let us know.

Among other policies, we do make room for quoting sources on the condition of anonymity. We feel our audience trusts that we reach people who are most qualified to speak to issues.

This reinforces our Subscriber Agreement, but for the avoidance of doubt, sharing subscriber account passwords is strictly prohibited and can result in account termination. The use of role-based email addresses is not permitted.

Duplicating and redistributing our content without permission is a violation of copyright and strictly prohibited.
