Editorial guidelines
Blaulicht Berlin endeavors to provide you with balanced and accurate information. Blaulicht Berlin employs editors who are responsible for the selection, development and maintenance of the content. We recognize the importance of a clear separation between our independent editorial content and any promotional material or content that could be influenced by our sponsors. In addition, we have organized the operation of our website in such a way that our education and funding programs are appropriately separated from an editorial point of view.

Sources of our information
All materials on our website that we present as our own are either created by us or obtained from content providers whose editorial processes we have evaluated and found acceptable. The material we create is written either by our permanent editors or by freelance journalists commissioned by us. Our content has been evaluated by internal editors and all submitted content is checked for a fair balance and whether the learning objectives are achieved through the content. Third party editorial content sources include government agencies, nonprofits, universities and key stakeholders who provide news and information on all of the industries we cover. Our editorial team checks most of the content from external sources for correctness, balance, completeness and topicality before we make it available on our website. In the cases in which a complete check is not possible, we rely on random samples and our prior evaluation of possible sources of information and the editorial approach of the information provider (e.g. publications). In most cases, the content that we obtain from others has also been checked by the provider’s own internal staff or has been checked by independent local authorities. In some areas of our website we provide content that comes from corporate partners and conference organizers. We design these areas to make it clear to the user that the content has not yet passed through our editorial process. Blaulicht Berlin regularly reviews the content of the website to ensure that it remains relevant. If necessary, content found incorrect or out of date is corrected, updated, moved to an archive (where it remains available) or cleaned up. We can use the editor’s notes to indicate when this happened.
