What is a Fact Check?

Fact Checking is a service provided by Data For Good, whereby various stakeholders (consumers, governments and Organizations) can request an independent (3rd party) verification of claims made for any given product, brand and/or service, by producers, brands and other types of Organizations through our Fact Checking service, we enable a bottom up, self regulated and verified system which aims to signal and eventually, minimize, false claims.

 

In fact, a Fact Check is simply a request for proof that the claims made about a product are true. By enabling a real and transparent exchange between civil society, companies and governments, we aim to give back the power to the people.
