Editorial Policy & Standards
Founded in 2011 and now an operating business of The Black Swan Agency™, CryoFX® is committed to creating newsworthy, accurate, helpful content that represents and serves all people. Our editorial teams strive for accuracy and integrity in our reporting and researching processes, and we are committed to working with a diverse group of writers and editors representing a wide range of ages, races, gender identities, sexual orientations, ethnicities, and abilities.
The CryoFX® Content Integrity Promise
We are committed to the quality and trustworthiness of our content and editorial processes. Our team of writers, editors, fact checkers, illustrators, photographers, and medical and financial professionals rigorously researches and reviews all content on an ongoing basis to ensure it is up to date, accurate, and puts the needs of our readers first.
Each article features a byline that includes the name, a brief description, and a link to more information for each person who contributed to that piece. The date indicates when the piece was most recently updated with new information. Some articles also have a tagline at the end to provide additional information on research or authorship.
Original illustrations, graphics, images, and videos are created by internal teams, who collaborate with experts in their fields to produce assets that represent diverse voices, perspectives, and context. Periodic review by editors as well as by Medical, Financial, Anti-Bias or other Review Board members as appropriate, ensure the quality, accuracy and integrity of these assets. Photos and videos are not edited in any way that may cause them to be false or misleading.
Our writers investigate claims and confirm all information and data gathered for all articles, including news. We consult relevant, diverse, qualified sources to ensure we’re providing proper context and background to the reader.
Each news article is thoroughly reviewed by a staff editor and fact checked by staff or a member of our experienced fact checking team. Articles are rigorously evaluated for accuracy, relevance, and timeliness.
If you have noticed an issue you would like to bring to our attention, please let us know by emailing: info at CryoFX.com.
Our editorial teams are committed to telling readers whenever a factual error has been made on a news story at the time of publication. We will correct the error as quickly as possible and alert readers to the correction. All corrections will be clearly labeled as such, and will include what was changed and when. When an article is factually correct, but the language is not as clear or detailed as necessary, the story may be updated without an editor’s note.
News articles often cover a distinct event in time, so they are not routinely updated. Our editorial teams are continually evaluating and updating evergreen articles to ensure they are timely, accurate, and relevant. Each article is date-stamped to reflect when they were last updated.
If you would like to report an error, you can do so by emailing: info at CryoFX.com.
Our writers and editors adhere to strict standards for article sourcing. We rely on current and reputable primary sources, such as expert interviews, government organizations, and professional and academic institutions. All data points, facts, and claims are backed up by at least one reputable source.
We strongly discourage use of anonymous or unnamed sourcing, as this can erode transparency and reader trust. In the rare instance where an unnamed source is used, we will disclose to readers the reason behind the anonymity and provide necessary context.
Our content strives to serve all communities.
Diversity and Anti Bias
CryoFX® believes that every human being deserves respect, representation, and opportunity. In service of CryoFX®'s mission to represent, serve, and help all people, CryoFX® has established an Anti-Bias Review Process made up of individuals from respective areas, to include but not limited to: educators, advocates, public health specialists, journalists, researchers, financial experts, and other professionals. Each has a background in supporting diversity, inclusion, and racial justice initiatives. Additionally, each CryoFX® brand has articulated an Anti-Racism Pledge.
Anti-Bias Review Process members review content and images across CryoFX®, using research and their expertise and judgment to advise CryoFX® brands on language, images, themes, and tone. The Anti-Bias Review Process supports each brand in the creation of inclusive content that supports readers of all races, ethnicities, gender identities, sexual orientations, ages, abilities, religions, and socioeconomic circumstances.
