We have a simple moderation policy:
A review stays. Unless it is illegal, offensive or not genuine.
We never display unsolicited feedback.
A company may not delete or edit any of their reviews. They may post a reply.
Anyone at all may request that we remove a review that breaks our policy. A placeholder is shown while we investigate.
By ‘genuine’ we mean that a comment represents the real customer experience of someone who has received a product or service from the company and who is neither an employee, competitor or close relative of either.
In most cases our integration means we can trace a review back to an invoice or order. Occasionally direct integration is not possible in which case we rely on self-certified customer details.
To maintain integrity we enforce a strict termination policy if there is any evidence of fraudulent use.
Generally speaking, ‘offensive’ means language or sentiment that’s not family-friendly. Specifically, we will uphold requests to remove comments which are in our opinion illegal, untrue, defamatory, obscene or discriminatory.
Sadly not all review services operate a ‘no delete’ policy for negative reviews. We do. We always have, and we always will.
Our goal is to help companies deliver, and customers to receive, great service. That’s why our software is unique in having more features to follow up and act on feedback than to display it.
Problems are rare. In fact historically we’ve seen fewer than 1 in every 10,000 reviews. But it’s the Internet and things can of course go wrong on occasion.
So whether it’s a word chosen poorly in the heat of the moment, or a deliberate attempt to mislead, our clear policy is designed to make sure that you can trust what you’re reading, and thousands of customers have benefited from great service as a result.
