Wikipedia is based on quoting sources other then article topic itself.
Editing Wikipedia pages by the same people that are actively involved in 
companies and/or contributing projects can be viewed as self-promotion 
and is usually sanctioned on Wikipedia.

That mostly goes to the way the text of articles that are being edited
and in a way that for every single edit, one must provide quote or 
source and the text itself must not be of a promotional type.
That said, it is best not to self-edit Wikipedia pages and leave that to 
others, plus fixing inaccuracies  got to make sure not to insert 
other/new inaccuracies in a positive intent,
but with consequences editable by the Whole world, in the case of Wikipedia.
