Nairobi Online Reviews Policy
For reviewers, the reviews service offers you the opportunity to rate and review your genuine observations and experiences you have had with businesses you use.
For business owners, NairobiOnline.co.ke reviews broadcast your reputation as a star rating in the search results, so they have the desired effect of influencing a user at the earliest possible stage to call you over the competition.
We ask both reviewers and business owners to share our values and abide by this Reviews Policy and the principles and guidelines contained within it.
We want to hear about your consumer experience first-hand. Your review should be factually correct. Negative feedback is fine, but constructive criticism is much more useful to the business and potential customers than an angry rant - no matter how therapeutic for the writer!
We encourage free speech and defend everyone's right to express unpopular points of view. But, we do not permit abusive and offensive behaviour, towards businesses or other users. This includes (but is not limited to) the use of profanities; threats; prejudiced comments; hate speech; and/ or, sexually explicit language.
Your opinion is no more or less valuable than anyone else's.
If you see abusive or otherwise offensive content - please report it through the Contact Us form.
Respect people's privacy
We expect users to join us in protecting people's privacy and for reviews to be unbiased and objective. Mentioning the owner of a bar/restaurant is fine, but detailing personal information such as full names, email addresses, mailing addresses; phone numbers; as well as bank and card details for, individual members of staff, or any other individual, is strictly prohibited.
Anything you share should be your own, unique work. This includes not uploading images/ videos you didn't make, or using content in your videos to which someone else owns the copyright, such as music tracks, snippets of copyrighted programmes or videos made by other users and unattributed quotes. Content may be removed, without notice to you, if we receive a complaint from the copyright owner.
Don't review your own or a competitor's business and don't use a review for promotional purposes
This is a sure fire way of damaging your online reputation and we will remove any reviews we identify as being fake or otherwise inappropriate.
Check your reviews regularly. We do not edit, pre-vet or review any third party material before it is published on the NairobiOnline.co.ke website. If you have a problem with a review that has been left, please follow the instructions below in "How to make a complaint or contact us".
If you are a business owner and do not wish to display ratings and reviews on your business listing, please contact us to make this change on firstname.lastname@example.org.
