To ensure that Trustpilot has as many genuine and constructive reviews as possible, we allow companies to flag reviews they believe are in breach of our guidelines.
To avoid misuse of the flagging function and maintain a balanced platform, Trustpilot investigates every flagged review, and only removes those that do violate our guidelines.
