Quick guide to Trustpilot's User Guidelines

To help everyone get a quick overview of Trustpilot's rules for reviewers and users of our online community, we've summarized our User Guidelines below:

Four tips for staying within the rules:

Did you know?

  • You can edit or update your review at any time.
  • At Trustpilot, we don't monitor reviews, but we do have some automatic checks to prevent coarse language and links in reviews. We also let our community notify us of reviews that violate our guidelines, and businesses can report reviews that don't meet our guidelines.
  • We can ask you to change your review if it violates our guidelines - this includes if it contains accusations or only reviews the product you bought rather than the service you received.

What's not allowed on Trustpilot:

  • If we ask you to change your review to bring it in line with our guidelines and you don't, we can remove your review.
  • As a general rule, we don't delete reviews because they're user-generated content. However, if you misuse your user profile and we have to delete that, all the reviews attached to it will also be deleted.
  • It's not ok to misuse our reporting or notification tools, to threaten, abuse or blackmail companies, commit fraud, or carry out inappropriate behavior in connection with using Trustpilot.
