Privacy & Disclaimer
Customer reviews are becoming a reliable authority for both prospective customers and companies interested in getting feedback on their products and services. This is why our platform incorporates several restrictions on posting reviews to protect the integrity and objectivity of the information obtained from the customers. We carry this out to avoid any form of abuse, and to promote openness.
We at Collected.Reviews take the matter of privacy very seriously, particularly with much consideration given to the new ePrivacy and GDPR policies. Our objective is to provide customers with a credible and independent platform where they can anonymously rate and review products and services received by several companies. As a customer, your personal information is guaranteed to be kept hidden from third parties unless expressly permitted by the author of the review. We will send a request to the author of the evaluation for confirmation before releasing information to any entity. We aim to offer prospective customers with a perspective of the company that is as unbiased and impersonal as possible, which comes from a trusted source. This is why we at Collected.Reviews prioritize credibility, fairness, and safety to a fault. We only collate reviews from confirmed previous customers of said companies and businesses. We make the necessary distinction between false claims and honest reviews through dedicated effort.
The reviews on the Collected.Reviews platform and the responses they get there, are without exception representations of their author’s opinion and should never be mistaken for our review of the company. Collected.Reviews is not responsible for any inaccurate or ambiguous content in posted reviews or responses to surveys. When necessary, we make sure to exclude personal names and inappropriate language from reviews and their answers. The main reason why we do this is to ensure that our website maintains its vision of safety, honesty, and objectivity.
We encourage previous customers of companies to provide their reviews with consistent accuracy, especially in the event of negative reviews. This is particularly important because we do check for the authenticity of your description of your experience. Your discussions as a customer should be centered on the relatable parts of your experience, to correctly inform people who are looking for original opinions about the company. When it is required, we reach out to the review writer for necessary clarifications. We could request for the author of the report to back their claims with such as an invoice or proof of conversations via email. Our website is scrutinized with great effort to avoid cases of people posting dishonest reviews. We ask reviews writers on our platform to narrate their experience with as much concrete detail as is available. We credit well-detailed reviews with a stable chance of staying published even in the face of complaints from reviewed companies, as they tend to possess more validity.
