For more than a decade CLINUVEL has been sharing news online about our business and the fields in which we work. As the digital world evolves around us – and in this time of restricted physical interaction – there is a clear need to facilitate more extensive objective discourse on CLINUVEL, including facilitating discussion on relevant topics. Our team is thus preparing an ongoing series of pieces based on facts and news flow – devoid of any fiction – which will form the core of CLINUVEL News & Facts.
The CLINUVEL News & Facts site gives an opportunity to explore and discuss the people, science and ideas that underpin CLINUVEL, while dispelling some of the myths, inaccuracies and falsehoods perpetuated elsewhere online. The CLINUVEL Board believes this is important at a time when dissemination of misinformation is more common than ever, and anyone with a keyboard can cause distress and damage. We also recognise there are many stakeholders who are new to the Company, who want to learn more about our journey and to whom we can provide greater insight and detail. In parallel, where our team sees disinformation¹ we will act accordingly and in keeping with the legislation available within the EU, Australia, Singapore and the United States². We will continue to use formal channels for company announcements. Please contact our team to share your thoughts, either through the comments below, across our social media, or via our online contact form.
¹ Including, but not limited to, The EU-wide Code of Practice against Disinformation, the Singaporean Protection from Online Falsehoods and Manipulation Act, the Australian, the New York New York Penal Law § 240.50, The New York False reporting Statute, and the US Uniform Correction or Clarification of Defamation Act, The Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918, The 2018 Determination Act, Broadcast and Content Reform Package as aid down in case law.
² Disinformation, as defined in this site, includes all forms of false, inaccurate, or misleading information designed, presented and promoted intentionally to cause public harm or for profit. CLINUVEL’s Board and Management fully support this approach.
