Decentered Media: Our Commitment to Public Rights, Safeguarding, Equality, and Freedom of Expression

At Decentered Media, we are steadfast in our commitment to uphold the public’s right to know, prioritize safeguarding, ensure equality of opportunity, and support the freedom of speech and expression. Our practices are aligned with UK legislation and standards, reflecting our dedication to transparency, safety, inclusivity, and open dialogue.

Public Right to Know

In line with the Data Protection Act 2018 and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we are transparent about the information we use in our interactions with service users. We ensure that all personal data is processed lawfully, fairly, and in a transparent manner. Individuals have the right to access their personal data, understand how it is used, and decide on its processing.

Safeguarding Priorities

Safeguarding is at the heart of our operations. We adhere to the principles outlined in the Children Act 1989, the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012, and the Care Act 2014 to ensure the welfare of children, young people, and adults at risk. Our practices are designed to prevent harm and abuse, and we have established protocols for reporting and addressing any safeguarding concerns.

Equality of Opportunity

In accordance with the Equality Act 2010, Decentered Media is committed to promoting equality of opportunity. We strive to create an inclusive environment where diversity is celebrated, and discrimination is actively opposed. Our approach ensures that individuals are treated fairly and with respect, irrespective of their age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, or sexual orientation.

Freedom of Speech and Expression

Decentered Media supports the principles of freedom of speech and expression, recognizing these as fundamental rights under the Human Rights Act 1998. We encourage open and fair discussion, valuing diverse viewpoints and opinions. Our platform is a space for respectful dialogue, where ideas can be exchanged freely within the framework of the law.

Decentered Media is dedicated to upholding the highest standards in data protection, safeguarding, equality, and freedom of expression. We believe in empowering our community by providing a safe, inclusive, and open platform that respects and champions these fundamental principles.
