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). Once you post your review on Review Pursuits, the company you’ve reviewed — and anyone reading reviews on Review Pursuits — can see your review, your username and any profile picture you've included.
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.
Can I delete my account?
If you no longer wish to write or display your reviews on Review Pursuits, you can delete your user profile. However, be aware that this will delete your account and all of your reviews associated with it and we won’t be able to recover them.
How can I delete my review invitations data?
