Fact-Checking Policy

a) srupdates.com is committed to doing its best to publish accurate information across all of its content. We take many steps to ensure accuracy: We investigate claims with scepticism; question assumptions; and challenge conventional wisdom.

b) We are committed to achieving due accuracy in all its output. This commitment is fundamental to our reputation and the trust of readers. The term ‘due’ means that the accuracy must be adequate and appropriate to the output, taking account of the subject and nature of the content and explicitly mention/underline any constraint that may influence that expectation.

c) This means all our output, as appropriate to its content and nature, must be well-sourced, based on available evidence and corroborated. We strive to be honest and open about what we don’t know and avoid unfounded speculation.

d) We never plagiarize deliberately or distort facts or context, including visual information knowingly.

e) We seek independent verification from sources to confirm claims, information, allegation, especially those made by public officials or anyone with an agenda beyond merely reporting the truth. Claims, allegations, material facts and other content that cannot be corroborated is normally be attributed.

d) srupdates.com stands by the information it publishes and deems it be accurate. If proven otherwise, we change the news item/information as quickly as possible. We do not knowingly and materially mislead our audiences. We do not distort facts, or present invented material as facts, that can undermine our audiences’ trust in our content. We acknowledge serious factual errors and correct them quickly, clearly and appropriately.

e) Our primary responsibility is reporting, writing, and fact-checking stories. Stories are subject to review. We have a multi-level fact-checking structure for stories that require due diligence.

Our Correction Policies

While srupdates.com continually strives for excellence and accuracy, we resign the fact that we will occasionally make errors. When these errors are made, srupdates.com will take responsibility for correcting the error and will maintain a high level of transparency to be sure all parties are confident that the incorrect information does not spread.

The following are the steps each party needs to take to achieve the goals of accuracy, transparency and excellence:

READERS:
If a reader spots an error, he or she should contact immediately by email.

Email: [email protected]

Sub: Correction Needed

A correction is not officially submitted until the reader contacts directly. Corrections submitted to srupdates.com and may not be addressed in a timely manner or at all.

If sent by email or mail, corrections should include the correction, the issue date or number, where the correction was seen (in print, online, etc.) the reader’s name and a phone number or email address they can be contacted at. Readers should also include the correct information and a source for where they found that information, if applicable. For example, if a Student marks was incorrect, please provide the minutes from that meeting.

The reader can expect a response from srupdates.com and may be contacted further if a clarification is noted or the same needs more information. Please note that a correction submission is a guarantee that the error will be investigated but not a guarantee that a correction will be issued.


Once we made aware of an error, we will investigate the error using the information provided by the reader, meeting minutes, reporter’s recordings and any other sources of information available to him or her.

If an error is found, we will issue a correction in all forms that the information was incorrectly disseminated.

SOCIAL MEDIA:
If the article was posted on Facebook, Twitter or any other online medium controlled by srupdates.com, a post will be made linking to the corrected article, noting the correction.

Once the correction is made, we will contact the reader who submitted the correction and inform them the steps that were taken to correct the error.
