Disclosure Zack Whittaker
I interned briefly at Microsoft UK Ltd. in 2006 but have since cut my ties. Regardless, I remain impartial and unbiased in my views.
I don’t hold any stock or shares, investments or industrial secrets in any company, but have signed confidentiality agreements with a number of UK and US organisations, whose names I am not at liberty to disclose.
I was involved with Kent Union, the University of Kent’s student union, undertaking voluntary, non-salaried, elected positions between early 2009 and mid-2010. since then, I remain as an automatic student member of the organisation as a result of my studies at the university.
No other company, body, government department, non-governmental organisation or third sector organisation employs me or pays me a salary in any capacity whatsoever.
As a freelance journalist, whenever expenses are given and taken by a company which is not CBS Interactive, these will be disclosed in each relevant post to ensure transparency.
