Policies

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. We may agree, but most likely only if we’re the sole media outlet offered that agreement. Short of an explicit agreement to hold it until a particular time, material sent to us will be considered for immediate coverage.

Ethics

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

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 always aim to “acknowledge mistakes and correct them promptly and prominently.”

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.

Subscriber Accounts

This reinforces our Subscriber Agreement, but for the avoidance of doubt, sharing subscriber account passwords is strictly prohibited and can result in account termination.

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