  • Use a different password for each of your important accounts.
  • Your password should be a mix of letters, both lower case and capital, as well as numbers and special characters.
  • Never use personal information or common words in your passwords, including your name, username, or company name.
  • Longer passwords, typically 8 or more characters, are more secure.
  • Avoid sequences (such as ABDCE) or repeated characters.

We will make all efforts to delete such information upon request from you. Personal Information as required by law or for the use of a legitimate business purpose may be archived and shared when we believe that such action is necessary to:

  1. Fulfill an enforceable government request
  2. Conform with requirements of the law or a legal process
  3. Protect or defend our legal rights, property, this website or other users of this website
  4. Protect the health and safety of the users of this website or the general public

Any reviews generated through using our software once placed on any of the review sites we link to cannot be removed or altered by us as we do not control third party review sites. To remove such information, you will need to contact the individual third party sites to make your request.

Do we use 'cookies'?

Yes, Reviews Ink utilizes cookies. When enabled on your computer, cookies are small files that a site transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser to recognize your browser and remember certain information. Reviews Ink uses cookies only to allow ease when users log into their accounts and to allow for technical functionality of our software.

However, personal information may be used internally by Reviews Ink to improve your user experience; to customize communications pertaining to product offerings, promotions and information applicable to you; or to make our services more helpful or useful to other users. The services of a third party may be used to perform these functions. Certain data and other non-personally identifying information gathered when you use our site may be shared with web analytics vendors, social networking platforms, and other third parties for this purpose. We may release information to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property or safety.

By registering for our software, paid or trial users allow us to identify them as customers and use their names and logos on our website and any pertinent marketing material.

Third-party Reviews Sites

Reviews Ink uses third party publicly available data about your business to find, store and display your reviews from around the web. We do not control how your business information is displayed on any of the third party review sites. We cannot remove or alter reviews that your customers place for you on these reviews sites as we do not control them. Our software helps you with encouraging your customers to leave you a review by helping you ask them in a professional way and by making the process of leaving reviews easy and interactive for them.

Negative Reviews

Although Reviews Ink has a built-in screening feature to prevent unhappy customers to whom you have sent an invitation from leaving you a negative review on any of the reviews sites we link to, you have to be advised that this does not completely prevent them from leaving you a negative review as they can go directly to any of the reviews sites they know and leave their feedback. In the event of receiving a negative review we have a committee of experts who can help you address the negative review at a reasonable additional cost by either filing a report to remove it from the 3rd party review site, if it violates any guidelines, or by helping you respond to the reviewer.
