- We run automatic checks for certain content that is not permitted in reviews, such as coarse language and links
- We have integrated into the Website two notification options in connection with each review:
- We can receive notifications from users that a review doesn't meet our guidelines, and

G7 When do we block your account and what does that mean?
We may block your account if you are misusing our website or services. This can include, but is not limited to, excessive use of the notification option (flagging a high number of reviews without justification), writing fabricated reviews, threatening or abusive behaviour (see clause 12 below), spamming our Website with marketing material, or violating these guidelines or our Terms & Conditions.
If we block your account, it will not be possible for you to sign in to our Website and use our services, including writing and notifying us about reviews.

Examples of when we may delete your user profile and account include, but are not limited to:
- It is not attached to a valid email address, including if the provided email address has expired or is no longer accessible by you. We need you to sign up to our services using a permanent, personal email address because we may need to get in touch with you.

If your user profile and account is deleted, the reviews attached to that user profile and account will also be deleted.

All ejorip users can notify us about reviews that violate these guidelines (or applicable laws). However, we consider misuse of the notification function a material breach of our Terms & Conditions. Examples of misuse include, but are not limited to:
- Carrying out unfounded or incorrect notification of many or all of the positive reviews of a Company that you have had a negative Service Experience with;

G10 When do we move your review from one company profile to another?
As a general rule, we don't move reviews from one Company profile to another.
But if we are notified by the Company or another user that your review has been left on the wrong Company profile, we will ask you which Company you intended to review. If you left your review on the wrong Company profile, we will move your review to the correct Company's profile page on our website.
We also reserve the right to move your review from one Company's profile page to another in special circumstances and to avoid confusion - such as, for example, where a Company is rebranded.
G11 Fabricated reviews
Our aim is to create and maintain a best-in-class online review community where you can freely share your Service Experiences with the Company and thereby provide an informative and fair view of the Company's services.
We use customized and advanced detection software to identify fabricated reviews on our platform. To support the software, we have a dedicated Compliance Team who safeguard trust by protecting our platform from fabricated reviews or other service misuse, and combat fraudulent behavior.
We have a zero-tolerance policy against fabricated reviews. Trust is crucial to us and we cannot under any circumstances accept fabricated reviews. This includes reviews that are not an expression of a genuine Service Experience, for example because they are created by or on behalf of the Company.
We consider the creation of fabricated reviews a material breach of the Terms & Conditions you accept when you create a user profile and account on our website.
Reviews that we deem false, fabricated or similar will be removed and can lead to the immediate blocking of your account and filing of a report with the relevant authorities. We also reserve the right to inform our community about any Companies reviewed on ejorip that have attracted a high number of fabricated reviews.
If you have evidence that a review is fabricated, we encourage you to notify us through our whistleblower function by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We take all reports of fabricated reviews seriously and investigate them. As this is not an easy task, we ask you to provide us with as much information as possible, including documentation showing why you believe a review is fabricated.
G12 Threats against ejorip employees and companies
We don't accept threats against or abuse of ejorip employees. Further, we don't tolerate threats against or blackmail of other companies by our users. This includes users requesting monetary compensation in return for editing or deleting their ejorip review(s).
We cannot accept such behaviour and we regard it as a material breach of the Terms & Conditions agreed between each user and ejorip. This can lead to us immediately blocking your account and filing a report with the relevant authorities.
We are committed to providing businesses and users with a fair and open online experience. We work extremely hard to maintain the integrity of our review community and the online review industry generally, nurturing a culture of trust and transparency and celebrating those businesses and users who use reviews to improve customer service standards and make the online retail environment more fair and open for everyone.
We reserve the right to enforce these guidelines if we observe violations of them, or of applicable laws or regulations. The same applies if we observe behavior that we believe or suspect to be inappropriate.
