What's Review Pursuits?
Review Pursuits is an online review community where you can read and write genuine, unfiltered reviews about companies whose products or services you're interested in – and review companies whose products or services you've bought or used.

We want reviewers to share their experiences with each other and businesses. Businesses can then respond to and use that feedback to provide better service. Review Pursuits provides the community where everyone can get together to improve experiences everywhere.

Help! Where did my review go?
Sometimes, reviews temporarily get taken down from Review Pursuits for investigation. But they haven't completely disappeared into thin air! A review might have been flagged by our fraud detection software, or it may not have followed our guidelines. If you think this has happened by mistake, get in touch with our Content Integrity Team.

Why do companies flag reviews?
To keep the Review Pursuits platform open and transparent, it's important that reviews follow Review Pursuits's Guidelines for Reviewers. All reviews have to be from real people about genuine service experiences. Companies flag reviews to our Content Integrity Team to investigate if they believe that the review goes against our guidelines.

Privacy & Protection

We prioritize protecting people’s personal data, so we’ve been updating our processes and policies to meet the EU’s sweeping new data privacy rules (the GDPR).

Data privacy is important to us
At Review Pursuits, we work hard to keep everyone’s data safe. We want our customers and everyone in our review community to be able to benefit from using our services, confident in the knowledge that we’re serious about protecting people’s personal information.

In line with that, we also strive to be as transparent as possible about the processes we have in place to store, process and protect personal data.

What’s Review Pursuits doing to comply with the GDPR?
Our commitment to data security and privacy means that we’ve been making changes to meet the requirements of a new EU law on data protection that came into effect on 25 May 2018.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has been described as the most comprehensive data privacy law yet, and it requires businesses across the EU and globally to review and rethink how they handle and protect personal data.
For Review Pursuits as a review platform, data plays a central role in our business. Naturally, inviting people to write reviews and share their experiences involves the exchange of information. So, in order to make sure we’re ready for the new rules, we’ve been focusing on putting new processes in place and updating our information about how we process data (see below).

For companies working with Review Pursuits reviews
If you’re a business who works with reviews, you’re welcome to download our white paper on Review Pursuits and the GDPR (see below — scroll down to Attachments). This paper provides an overview of some of the most important issues to consider in making sure you also meet the GDPR's requirements.
You can also view Review Pursuits GDPR-compliant Data Processing Agreement (DPA) that regulates how we process data on behalf of companies, and ensures we do it in a compliant way. This is available on our website, together with an overview of the data sub-processors we use.
For details on how we ensure the security of data concerning companies, see also our article on security practices (including the downloadable white paper, Security practices for Review Pursuits Review Invitation Services), and our Privacy Policy for business users.

For reviewers and consumers
The GDPR extends the rights of individuals and gives them a higher level of control concerning their personal data. To find out how we ensure the security of data for people who use our platform, see our Privacy Policy here.

Questions about data privacy?
Pursuant to the GDPR, Review Pursuits has appointed a Data Protection Officer.
Both businesses and consumers with questions on data security and protection are welcome to get in touch with Review Pursuits Privacy Team and Data Protection Officer by emailing us at support@reviewpursuits.com.

We’ve collected answers to important GDPR- and privacy-related questions to help you understand how we protect your data and what you can do to manage your privacy.
We want you to feel comfortable and confident about using Review Pursuits to share your experiences, so we give you control over what type of information is shown and where.

How do I make my user profile more private?
We always keep your data safe, but some information connecting your user profile to your review(s) is publicly visible. You’re free to edit your profile to change the information displayed about you on Review Pursuits if you wish, or to update and correct details associated with your account. You can also update your reviews, delete any you don’t want shown, or write new reviews.

Can I change my username to something other than my name?
You can use a pseudonym or change your username to something that makes you less identifiable, or even anonymous, if you like.

What data does Review Pursuits share with the company I’ve reviewed?
When you write a review, the only data we share with the company you've reviewed is any reference number you’ve inserted (if you included one).

Who sees my reference number?
To write a review, you may be asked to provide a reference number, order ID, user number or similar. Only the reviewed company and Review Pursuits will be able to see it and connect your review with your order or experience.

Deleting data

Your reviews appear on Review Pursuits platform, and potentially other places, such as the websites or social media channels of the business you reviewed if they choose to feature your review. Your review may also be displayed when people do Google searches that bring up the company you reviewed.

I’ve signed up to Review Pursuits with my Facebook account. Are my reviews on Facebook?
We’ll never post to Facebook on your behalf, but if you’ve chosen to connect your Review Pursuits profile with your Facebook account, any of your Facebook friends who also use Review Pursuits may be able to see your reviews. You can stop your reviews showing up for your Facebook friends by adjusting your settings to unlink your Review Pursuits profile from Facebook.

I have reviews that I want to change or don’t want visible
You control which of your reviews are displayed on Review Pursuits. You can update your reviews, or — if you don’t want them displayed — permanently delete them from Review Pursuits.

Useful reviews reflect genuine experiences had by real people. That's why we have rules about who's eligible to leave a review on Review Pursuits.

When can you write a review?
Our Guidelines for Reviewers set out that you can review a company if you've had a recent, genuine experience with them. It could be:

  1. You bought something
  2. You ordered something
  3. You had a phone conversation or online chat
  4. You visited a store
  5. You otherwise used the company's products or services
Top tip: Save some documentation that shows you've had an experience (like a receipt or a screenshot of your online chat with customer service), just in case there's a question about your review after you've posted it.

What other requirements are there?
As well as making sure you fit one of the above situations, make sure your review is:

  1. Only about your own experience - not someone else's, and
  2. About an experience you’ve had within the past 12 months.

When can't you write a review?
You can't write a review if you have a special relationship to the company you're reviewing. Specifically, your review shouldn't be about a business that:

  1. You own, have owned, or someone in your immediate family owns
  2. You're employed by or work for, or
  3. Is a direct competitor to a business you own or work for.
