Mumbrella gifts and hospitality – 2011

Mumbrella’s editorial team is occasionally entertained in the course of building relationships with contacts, and sometimes receives gifts.

Starting from August 2011, in the interests of transparency, our intention is to declare the sources of both. Our policy is to return gifts to the value of more than $100.
