  • 6. Review Guidelines

    You represent that you have read and understood the following review guidelines (collectively, the “Review Guidelines”) and agree to abide by same:

    • 1. Reviews must be based on a business transaction. If you have conducted business with a Vendor, and are able to provide proof of such business transaction(s), then you are permitted to post a review for each unique transaction you conducted with such Vendor.

    • 2. The content of a review must be family-friendly. EventSource will not post – or once posted, will remove – any defamatory or insulting language, profanity, threats, prejudiced comments, hate speech, personal attacks, or other content considered objectionable.

    • 3. Reviews must be submitted with a name and a valid email address. EventSource's policy is to post your first and last name in association with a review, unless you request to remain anonymous. Although EventSource may use your email address to contact you if there is a problem with your review, we will never post your email address or any other personal information on the Site. We value your privacy. Your name and email address are only required for verification purposes, and to ensure that we serve the best and most relevant results to users of the Site. For more information, please see EventSource's Privacy Policy.

    • 4. Ensure your review is unique, independent, and accurate. Your review should focus solely on your experience with the Vendor and the goods and/or services provided by such Vendor. As others may rely on your reviews, we urge you to make your comments helpful, reasonable, and above all, truthful to your experience. Ensure your content is as factually accurate as possible according to your knowledge and experience.

    • 5. Ensure your review is legal and non-infringing. We will not post, and will remove from the Site, any review that is or becomes illegal or infringing. Reviews may be removed if (i) you request your review to be removed; (ii) your review has been disputed and is currently being investigated; once the investigation is completed, your review will either be posted on the Site or rejected if EventSource has determined that your review does not comply with the Review Guidelines; or (iii) your review does not comply with the Review Guidelines.

    • 6. Company owners, management, or employees (past or current) may not pose as consumers and post reviews about their own company. This is considered to be fraudulent activity, and will be treated accordingly.

    • 7. Reviews must be non-commercial. EventSource will not post any web addresses, e-mail addresses, HTML code, or promotional materials of any kind.

    • 8. Reviews must be written in English.

  • 7. Vendor Responses.

    We allow Vendors and representatives of Vendors that were reviewed to respond to posted reviews by logging into their Vendor dashboard and replying directly to such reviews. EventSource will apply the same Review Guidelines to such responses. Please note that the identity of a representative that files a response to a review will be made known on the Site.

  • 8. Fraudulent Activity.

    EventSource may suspend or terminate your use of the Site if EventSource suspects that you have engaged in fraudulent activity in connection with the Site, as determined in EventSource's sole discretion.
