The following information explains Golden Financial’s content policy for the website goldenfs.org; including our policies regarding ethics, standards, and how we handle corrections made on the website.
Golden Financial Services is a credit card debt relief company, and we offer a free blog for consumers to use, learn from, and enjoy, at GoldenFs.org/Debt-Relief-Blog/. We make our money when consumers sign up for debt relief services, but the blog is used purely to provide educational and newsworthy content for the public to enjoy and learn from. Our free tools, including the debt snowball calculator and budget calculator, are also absolutely free to the public.
Golden Financial’s Code of Ethics
Golden Financial is committed to following the Codes of Ethics of the Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing (SABEW). Our content is guided by and upholds the Society for Professional Journalists’ foundations of ethical journalism: being accurate and fair, minimizing harm, acting independently, and being accountable and transparent. We also uphold the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) guidelines on disclosures, where applicable.
Golden Financial content is for informational purposes and is not intended to substitute for the advice of a licensed or certified attorney, accountant, financial advisor, or other certified financial professionals.
Golden Financial Standards
Golden Financial’s experienced editors and experts write and manage all the articles you find on GoldenFS.org, including the CEO, Paul J Paquin. We don’t make recommendations for you to buy, sell, or hold securities or investments. We do, however, provide relevant analysis, context, insights, and educational information related to debt relief and investing, to help you make smarter, better-informed decisions. Wherever possible we provide examples that help put complex topics and concepts into perspective, including summaries of popular books (like our newest book summary of One Up On Wall Street here).
Our editorial team is continually evaluating the articles across our site to flag any that contain information that is known to be or is likely to be out-of-date. Such articles are reviewed and updated or, if necessary, completely rewritten, rechecked, and re-edited. Our experienced experts, who uphold our process and policies, assist with our updating efforts. Articles that have been updated are date-stamped to reflect this.
Golden Financial’s Corrections and Editorial Policy
Golden Financial is committed to being transparent with its readers. If a mistake is made we will share the information with the public. Corrections will be clearly noted on the page. When our journalism is factually correct, but the language is not as clear or detailed as necessary, the story may be updated without an editor’s note.
If you find any errors or wish for a piece of content to be edited, please send an email to Paul@goldenfs.org.
If you are a journalist and interested in working with Golden Financial, please email Paul Paquin at Paul@GoldenFs.org.
