Editorial policy

As a news-reporting organization, Tnooz believes in the journalistic standards of openness, fairness and transparency.

We do not solicit or accept payment for editorial content submissions under any circumstances.

Our editorial staff and freelance reporters who write news stories, analysis and commentary do not have an investment or other financial interest in the subjects of those articles. Any conflict of interest between one of our writers and news subjects is disclosed as part of the published article.

A full disclosure is also noted in any article when an author’s travel and accommodation was resourced by a third party organisation.

We have a team of industry analysts and commentators we call Nodes. These writers are subject-matter experts in their fields and they work in travel, technology or related industries that enable their unique perspectives on news, topics and trends our readers expect from Tnooz.

Our Nodes’ backgrounds and affiliations are disclosed on our site in their biographies. Any conflict of interest between Nodes and the subject of their analysis is disclosed either in their affiliation or specifically as part of the published article.

We also invite occasional subject-matter experts or accept submissions from SMEs from travel, technology and related industries.

These submissions provide valuable industry-facing perspective on news, topics and trends important to our readers. We call these contributors Special Nodes and disclose their affiliations and conflicts of interest in the published article.

We encourage readers to contribute to discussions and share their opinions in the dedicated space below each article for comments. Comments are moderated by our editorial team and should be respectful, concise and add to the debate.

Comments which are promotional in nature, not relevant to the discussion or contain profanity towards other contributors will be deleted.

Commercial policy

As a commercial organization, we accept advertising in the form of paid banner ads, text ads and online/live event sponsors.

We also continuously explore other new media commercial opportunities that support our news, information and business services comprising our web, mobile and in-person marketing platform.

Members of our commercial team do not report or write news articles, but they may write for our company blog and provide analysis or commentary.

Any conflict of interest between a member of our commercial team and the subject of a news or other article is disclosed as part of the published article.

Please contact us if you have any questions about our ethics statement.
