The Chainsaw’s editorial team does not accept payment from individuals or companies in exchange for editorial coverage. Similarly, while staff may at times accept gifts, we only do so without guaranteeing coverage.
When covering press trips that have been paid for by a brand partner, the circumstances will be clearly disclosed to the reader in any subsequent coverage, and the reporting will always be honest and unbiased.
When it comes to gifts, or travel, The Chainsaw’s editorial team works to avoid conflicts of interest at all times.
Similarly, The Chainsaw has a strict financial disclosures policy in regards to editorial staff’s personal cryptocurrency, NFT, or related financial holdings. Staff with holdings in any one cryptocurrency above AU$5,000 must disclose the amount they own in a short disclaimer — e.g. “Bob personally owns 4 ETH, at a value of approximately $9,200 at the time of writing.”
