Editorial Policy, Terms & Conditions, House Rules, Cookies, Privacy and Legal Stuff
We are happy to make corrections quickly and candidly and always publish corrections at least as prominently as the original mistake was published. Wherever possible we publish corrections on our own initiative as soon as we learn of a mistake and can confirm the correct information. Our corrections policy should not be taken for a policy of accommodating readers who are simply unhappy about a story that has been published.
While every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the information published on this web site, no guarantee is expressed or implied and the Publisher does not accept liability for any loss or damage that may arise from any errors or omissions. Please also note that web site addresses can change. All trademarks and brand names are acknowledged.
NO STIFFING POLICY
We have a strict no stiffing policy. We do not carry advertorial or charge suppliers for carrying their press releases. All stories are reported purely on their editorial merits. And if you want to vet anything we write about you before we print it, forget it. We do not submit to copy controls, that’s what makes our publication the most widely read in legal IT.
We all know that you should never have a heated debate with a doorman, a police officer, or your mother. It won’t end well and you most certainly will not be on the winning team!
Now we’re not suggesting that the Orange Rag’s “Brand-Police” have lost their sense of humour and that a bit of friendly banter, vigorous ribbing on a Wednesday afternoon between 14.37 and 16.29 will be frowned upon.
However, when killing time after that innovation meeting you just left where no one was allowed to sit down and apparently you are a now “Blue” character type, please try to stick to “The House Rules” before you turn the Orange Rag “Red”:
- be respectful of others who use the platform.
- stay on topic.
- keep comments concise.
- do not use language that is offensive, inflammatory or provocative (this includes, but is not limited to, comments that use language that is threatening, racist, sexist, homophobic, obscene or offensive – such as swearing).
- please do not post personal information in comments such as addresses, phone numbers, e-mail addresses or other online contact details, which may relate to you or other individuals.
- do not impersonate or falsely claim to represent a person or an organisation.
- do not attempt to log on using another user’s account.
- do not spam the comments board. Spamming is when you resubmit the same or similar comment across our blogs and social media posts multiple times.
- do not post unsuitable links. Unsuitable links include those that may initiate an immediate file download, or that contravene the guidelines listed above.
- do not break the law (this includes libel, condoning illegal activity and contempt of court).
So we took the following “House Rules” out of the list as they didn’t quite seem appropriate for the Orange Rag’s House Rules but don’t do ’em anyway:
- do not use the platform for party political purposes or post information that could break election or referendum rules. Ofgem* is funded by supplier licence fees and with public money, so it’s inappropriate to engage in party-political activity.
- do not make any commercial endorsement or promotion of any product, service or publication.
- if you are aged 16 or under, please get the permission of your parent or guardian before participating. They do not allow users without this consent to participate.
