Our PR, reviews and ethics policy

We take pride that our reviews are independent and free from commercial considerations. We never take money for reviews. Nothing that has a star rating has been paid for.

Separate to our editorial content and process, we do run advertorial feature content which is clearly marked and tagged as ‘sponsored’.

We sometimes take trips and hospitality to attend shows and see products. It doesn’t affect how we think about products, but does affect whether we cover certain products (as in we may not have been able to get to see a certain product had the company not taken us to see it).

Almost all our review products are sent to us by the companies involved and almost always as a result of our request. We only review the products we think are worth reviewing. We always return products on request or at the end of our agreed loan period. 

In our reviews, we score products on a scale from 1 to 5 stars. Products that score one or two stars are best avoided. Three stars is a good to very good product, four stars is an excellent product. Five stars is never awarded lightly and is a mark of exceptional quality.

We often include shopping links in articles to enable readers to buy the products we write about – these prices are automatically populated from a selection of retailer pricing. Our parent company, Future Publishing, gets paid a small percentage of the purchase price if someone clicks through and buys a product as a result of using these links. That price, known as an affiliate fee, is not added to your purchase price so the price you pay is the same whether you click to visit the retailer from T3.com or you go to the retailer's site direct. For instance, we participate in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com.

 How to pitch stories to T3 

Please pitch by email primarily and include images or links to images wherever possible. Please don’t pitch by Twitter or other social media platforms. 

Phone calls are fine, but if it’s to ask whether or not you should send a press release then please just send it if it is relevant.

We rarely cover products sent in on spec so please check with us before sending review samples. 

We don’t cover startups, business or industry stories, fintech or financial results or individual apps (unless part of a larger app roundup, which we occasionally do). We also rarely publish stories based on surveys or similar – we publish depending on the strength of a product. 

We rarely cover crowdfunded projects and if we do, the projects we cover will generally have already reached their funding goal.
