At Downtime Bros, we strive to provide our readers with accurate and trustworthy information about the video game industry, movies, TV, tech, pop culture, and other related topics. Our editorial team is committed to upholding the highest ethical standards in our reporting and content creation. To ensure transparency and maintain the trust of our readers, we have established the following editorial ethics policy:

Editorial Independence: Our editorial team operates independently of any external influences, including game developers, publishers, advertisers, or any other third party. We do accept games and products for the purposes of review, but we do not accept any form of compensation, including gifts, money, or favours, in exchange for coverage or favourable reviews of any game or product.

Sponsored Posts and Affiliate Links: We may publish sponsored posts from time to time which will be clearly labelled as such. Sponsored posts will be subject to the same high editorial standards as our regular content, and we will only work with sponsors whose products or services we believe are of interest to our readers. Articles on this website may also include affiliate links through which we may earn a commission for any purchases made.

Disclosure: In cases where we have received any products or services for review, we will disclose this information in our coverage. Additionally, any conflicts of interest or potential biases of our writers or editors will be disclosed.

Accuracy and Fairness: We strive to present accurate, unbiased, and fair coverage of all topics. Our editorial team will thoroughly fact-check all articles and strive to provide balanced coverage that represents multiple viewpoints. When quoting or covering a story from another publication, we will always provide credit and a link to the original piece. For all reviews, we use a 1-10 rating system, which is detailed on the “Our Rating System” page.

Corrections: In the event of an error, we will make corrections promptly and transparently. Corrections will be clearly labelled and appended to the original article. If you feel a correction needs to be made, please contact the editors at the email address below.

Privacy and Consent: We respect the privacy of our sources and will not disclose any confidential information without their consent. 

Comments and User-Generated Content: We encourage our readers to participate in discussions and share their opinions, but we reserve the right to remove any comments or user-generated content that are abusive, contain hate speech, or are otherwise inappropriate.

Editorial Staff Conduct: Our editorial team is expected to conduct themselves with the utmost professionalism and to avoid any actions that could damage the reputation or integrity of Downtime Bros or diminish the trust of our readers.

At Downtime Bros, we take our ethical responsibilities seriously and are committed to providing our readers with trustworthy and reliable coverage of all the topics featured on this site. If you have any concerns or questions about our editorial policy, please contact us at [email protected].
