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. Read our How We Test page for more information on our reviewing process.

Affiliate and Advertising disclosure

We always aim to provide unbiased editorial created by our journalists and writers. We also need to pay our teams and website costs so we make money in a number of ways. We sometimes use affiliate links to products and services on retailer sites for which we can receive compensation if you click on those links or make purchases through them. From time to time we also publish advertorials (paid-for editorial content) and sponsored content on the site. When this is the case the content is clearly marked as sponsored or promoted, so you’ll always know which content is editorial and which is not. Future PLC is our parent company and has an in-depth terms and conditions page with a lot more information that you can read right here

 How to pitch stories to T3 

Please pitch by email to the relevant editor above or to team@t3.com and include images or links to images wherever possible. Please don’t pitch by social media platforms. 

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.
