HCCG Holdings Pty Ltd, trading as HerCanberra, publishes hercanberra.com.au and manages its associated social media platforms.
All thoughts, opinions and views expressed in this website belong to the authors.
Sometimes people question whether the articles published are ‘for reals’ because they’re mostly positive. That’s because we like to support Canberra and local businesses.
But—and this is important—if we publish a post which is part of a commercial arrangement, we will ALWAYS let you know by indicating it is a ‘sponsored post’. Our policy on Sponsored Posts explains how we manage paid editorial. But we will never lead you astray—if we don’t like something, we’ll either say so, or we won’t say anything at all. Our mothers taught us to be kind.
If we are gifted products or services for the product of a review, we’ll declare that too.
If you have any questions about this policy, email email@example.com and we’ll happily chat about it.
HCCG Holdings Pty Ltd accepts no liability or responsibility to any person as a consequence of any reliance upon the information contained in this Website.
CODE OF ETHICS
HerCanberra abides by the MEAA Journalist Code of Ethics.
We strive to be as accurate as possible, but sometimes we make mistakes or miss information. If you find any factual errors or context that needs correcting, please send those to firstname.lastname@example.org for review and correction.
We require our journalists to be precise with their words, headlines, and URLs. They must understand that words have power and act responsibly. In doing so, they must verify the information they gather. This includes identifying information such as names and positions, but also includes factual statements and accounts. Reporters conduct their own fact checking using their own judgment guided by our ethics policy. HerCanberra will use fact checkers in certain circumstances it deems warranted.
