Where matters specifically stated in it are made upon information and belief, I believe them to be true. I make this declaration conscientiously believing it to be true and knowing that it is of the same force and effects as if made under oath.
I understand if my company is a gold winner we need to participate in a phone interview with a journalist as well as an on-site video shoot. I understand I am not able to see the article or the video prior to publication as they are both pieces of journalism, not personalized marketing items.
