Our guidelines for reviews

< Back

We love hearing about your experiences and value your contributions to our site! We also want to make sure that we are a safe and trustworthy source for our community.
To provide a great user experience, and to get your review published as quickly as possible, please ensure your reviews are:

Family-Friendly

To maintain a safe, family-friendly environment, we don’t allow profanity or vulgarities in reviews. We also reject reviews that include sexually explicit comments, hate speech, prejudiced language, threats, or personal insults. So, keep it suitable for all ages! Any reviews that describe reviewer participation in illegal activities, including those that advocate or describe drug use in defiance of local laws, will be removed. We only publish reviews submitted by users 13 years or older.

 

Relevant to workers & meeting participants

Keep your reviews relevant and helpful to like-minded people – keep in mind that they are reading your review to understand what an experience with the business might be like. For this reason, please don’t include personally insulting language, smear campaigns or any personal opinions about politics, ethics, religion or wider social issues. We don’t allow reviews that promote intolerance for individuals or groups of people based on their race, gender, religion, sexual preference or nationality. Irrelevant or inappropriate questions directed at business owners or other users will be removed. If you do have a relevant question or comment for users, you can access our exclusive Facebook community.

 

Unbiased

Reviews are most helpful when they provide unbiased advice. We don’t allow individuals or entities who own or are affiliated with a property to publish reviews of their business or competing establishments. Reviews submitted in an attempt to blackmail a listing will not be published. If you suspect a review is fraudulent or doesn’t meet our posting guidelines, you can “submit a ticket” located at the bottom of each page in the footer or within your personal profile.

 

Helpful, First-Hand

Our community wants to hear about your experience. This means no second-hand information, rumors or quotations from other sources like from your second cousins best friend’s brother in your review. Please only provide reviews based on substantial experiences you’ve had and be sure to include enough detail in your review that other visitors will find your advice helpful.

 

Recent

The best reviews are those that are written within a year of your experience. We want to hear about every work experience you have, but keep in mind that you should only submit one review per experience with a given property – unless it has been a while since you were there and you’d like to update on your experience status.

 

Original

Give us your best, most accurate advice – just make sure it’s yours! Reviews should contain original content and no extensive quoted material from other sources. Any review content plagiarised from other websites, reviewers, emails, or printed materials will be removed.

 

Non-commercial

Reviews are designed to provide advice to people like you, not to advertise a service or business. Please don’t include commercial or promotional content of any kind. Reviews that are being offered in exchange for personal gains, such as gifts, services or money, will be removed. We reserve the right to reject specific content for any reason. We do not allow reviews that contain links to external websites.

 

Respectful of Private Information

We respect your privacy and the privacy of the businesses we list. We want you to tell us all about your experience but please keep personal or exclusive information to yourself, such as door codes or passwords of any kind. Any reviews containing personal financial information, including credit card numbers, loyalty rewards numbers or other financial information, will also be removed. This includes both the reviewer’s information and the information of others. We allow names to be published to our site; however, we will remove last names upon request. This includes the last names of employees or owners associated with the property you are reviewing.

 

Listed by us

A review must relate directly to the property to which it is submitted, so please ensure you are submitting your review to the correct listing on our platform. For instance, if you intend to review a place with several locations (e.g. bar, restaurant & hotel), please ensure your review is submitted to the corresponding listing page, not the hotel listing page for that property – unless this is what you would like to recommend. This excludes indoor and outdoor areas of properties.

 

Easy to Read

Help other workers get the most out of your review by using the correct alphabet for your language and avoiding machine translations that make your review hard to read. Please don’t use HTML tags, excessive ALL CAPS or slang. Fill up space with details about your experience and avoid content that is not helpful to workers.

We reserve the right to remove a review or business owner response at any time for any reason. The reviews posted on our platform are individual and highly subjective opinions. The opinions expressed in reviews are those of our members and not of weBOUND marketing e.U. We do not endorse any of the opinions expressed by reviewers or in management responses. We are not affiliated with any establishment listed or reviewed on this website. In accordance with our privacy policy, we do not release anyone’s personal contact information.
