Our mission is to provide easy access to a comprehensive range of regularly updated local news and blog sites focused around specific geographical areas in a simple and easy to scan format: to profile a diverse range of local independent voices and help them gain a wider audience by directing web traffic to them and so facilitate debate around local issues and strengthen local online communities.
What we do We maintain lists of third party websites which we preselect for their value and relevance to our audience in each geographical area. When new content is published on these sites it may get aggregated depending upon its relevance determined by the rules set in our automated filtration systems.
Dispassionate We aim to be politically neutral and provide links to a range of news and opinion websites whose views may not reflect our own. We are not responsible for the unedited extracts of displayed aggregated content, or for you choosing to follow the hyperlinks we provide or for the complete content on the source sites.
Fairness We aim to take an ethical and transparent approach to aggregation by selecting only a small extract of unedited content to indicate what a story is about, then provide a direct deep and specific hyperlink off to the source website which we aim to credit in full. We do not claim copyright of aggregated content. We do not accept payment for aggregated links but we do accept payment for advertising.
Privacy We do not collect information which can identify the individual personal details of users accessing our sites, or identify the personal details of individual bloggers aggregated on our sites, beyond what either choose to make public or actively give us.
