ETHICAL GUIDELINES – INFORMIM.AL

As a general principle, our online journalism must respect all professional ethics and core values of journalism. Because of the nature of our media which focuses on the Roma and Egyptian rights minority, we have to adhere to keep in line with all the values for correct representation and diversity.
 In particular, information published by our online media must be
  • Accurate and fact-based;
  • Verified by different sources;
  • Published without intent to do harm;
  • Inclusive of all relevant points of view, especially of those of the minorities;
  • Transparent in origin of content and methods of journalism used.
  • with cited sources, In cooperation with other online or other type of media and respects the reports and findings of colleagues 

PRINCIPLES RELATED TO THE SPECIFICS OF ONLINE PUBLICATIONS

  • Journalists will always respect the dignity, reputation and privacy of individuals. 
  • The editors or operators of websites shall not publish any material online, written or visual, that incites hatred or violence, or causes director indirect discrimination on the basis of gender, age, marital status, language, physical or mental disabilities, sexual orientation, political conviction, religion, or ethnic or social status.
  • Because our media often focuses on children, our posts are monitored with special care and attention, including for the purpose of preventing cyber bullying and harm
  • We will have a clear distinction between editorial content and forums reserved for user generated content. Editors are aware that they are ethically and, potentially, also legally liable for content generated by third parties published on their website.
  • Care is exercised to ensure that hyperlinks used in website content do not direct users to other sites that contain deliberately harmful and false information or that do not respect the Journalism Code of Ethics.
  • All our posts shall be available in Albanian language, with a clear and concise language. 

USER-GENERATED CONTENT

  • Hate speech is understood as speech intended to generate intense hatred or is incitement to actual violence or discrimination against individuals or groups, especially minorities of all kinds. Our social media accounts are also monitored. 
  • Editors or website operators will make available to users a simple mechanism to report third-party content that users consider unlawful or in violation of website policies.
  • Editors and website operators shall act immediately to investigate and remove unacceptable content as soon as they become aware of it. They shall act on their own volition (even in the absence of a complaint by affected persons or other parties) and shall respond immediately upon receipt of a legitimate complaint.

NOTICE AND TAKE-DOWN PROCEDURES

  • Editors or website operators will adopt effective mechanisms for reviewing public complaints or reports about material that may be unlawful or in violation of website policies. Complainants will receive confirmation that their notices are being considered.
  • As a rule, editors or operators should take action on complaints as soon as possible and no later than within 48 hours. Exceptionally, this timeline may be extended in cases that are especially complex from a legal or ethical perspective.
  • Editors treat anonymous third-party content with particular care. Anonymity is a right to be extended to people in special circumstances (children, for instance, or victims of violence or other vulnerable groups). Normally editors and web-site operators should expect all contributors to be transparent and to provide a legitimate contact point. 

ON USE OF THIRD-PARTY CONTENT OBTAINED FROM SOCIAL MEDIA OR PROVIDED BY THE GENERAL PUBLIC

  • Personal photographs, videos or written material published on social media are also considered to be in the public domain, and their use by the mass media exposes them to a potentially wider audience. Media should take into consideration the impact of using of such personal material and information, especially in relation to tragic events. Copyright-related implications should also be considered.
  • Photographs and video taken from social media will be carefully scrutinized and verified to establish their authenticity.
  • The facility of obtaining images from social networks or personal pages does not exempt media from their duty of care. The public interest in publication of such information should be weighed against privacy rights and protection of minors. 

ONLINE ARCHIVES, REPUBLICATION OF THIRD-PARTY CONTENT

  • Our online media is, to the fullest extent possible, maintaining online archives of our published content. Permanent archive materials contribute to the preservation of the historical record and should be redacted or taken down only in exceptional circumstances, such as when ordered to do so by a court, or when ongoing publication may seriously endanger the wellbeing of children or the physical and psychological integrity of vulnerable individuals, or if the original publication was inaccurate or suffered from serious ethical lapses. Every redaction is to be accompanied by an explanation on the same page. 
  • The repeated republication of content and other material produced by other media, without their permission or appropriate attribution is a violation of copyright and considered a serious infringement of journalistic ethics. Furthermore, any quotation (fair use) of third-party content should clearly indicate the source/author of the material and comply with other requirements of copyright law.
